The Pantheon of the Gods

Modern day Iatkosi respect a more or less standard pantheon of gods, deities, and demigods organized into seven different domains or aspects. This does not, however, indicate that beings who fall within a particular domain are unified or act as a team. In fact, some deities have long-standing rivalries with their counterparts within their same aspect. Some of the entities of the panthenon are elder beings born in the dawn of time, whose present shape, form, and personality are determined by the the traditional worship of them by mortals. These elder gods are static – that is, they have always been gods and, presumably, they always will be. They are ancient and ultimately unknowable and alien, though they have adapted many mortal-like characteristics. In addition to these elder beings, there are also demi-gods and ascendants who were once mortal but who have risen to take a god-like role in the pantheon. These entities are more prone to change, with some vanishing from the pantheon only to be replaced by another mortal who has ascended to the same “role” or to a new role entirely.
