The Old gods were sired out of the Almighty’s love for HIS mortal creation and all the creatures and races that resided within in, and were tasked with the safekeeping and guarding of those most cherished creations. Each Old god was tasked with a particular realm or dominion in which to oversee and uphold. However, since their apathy during the Blight of the Dark One, the gods of Old have since been cast down from their dominions, and no longer hold the authority or power which would accompany those positions. Since then, the responsibilities attributed to their previously held dominions have been assigned to the New gods. Be it due to the obscurity of time or the result of the Dark One’s century long campaign against creation, the majority of the knowledge held about these Old gods have been lost and forgotten. What little has been retained has been handed down through the generations of Elves that remember, or through the hard labors of the archeologically inquisitive and curious. As their presence is all but void of the since their removal, it is long contended that whatever punishments or banishments the Old gods suffer, they are ones far removed from the happenings of the world.
The known gods of Old are as follows:
- Asmodeu – God of Power
- Avandra – God of the Sun and Light
- Corellann – Goddess of Beauty
- Ioun – God of Knowledge
- Melora – Goddess of the Seas
- Nethys – God of Magic
- Sarenrae – Goddess of Life
- Vecna – Goddess of Death
- Zehir – God of Moon and Darkness
Many others are thought to have existed, but no record of them remains, and none still live, who remember them.
