The Greater Gods, also known as the Prime Gods are the chief deities of the world of Neptos.
Created by Protos, the Prime Creator, they represent the will of all sentient creatures on the mortal plane of existence.
The Greater gods are the most powerful beings in existence but they are not omnipotent. They share the mortal flaws of their worshipers as well as their mortal desires.
Through worship, the gods gain power and influence. In return, they grant powers to their faithful through divine magic.
This creates a synergistic relationship between the Gods and mortals of the world where the gods’ powers expand according to the devotion of their followers.
There is much theological debate amongst scholars, sages, and clerics as to what came first, the gods or the worship? However, one thing remains true. The divine is no illusion and the powers gods grant their followers are real.
While the greater Gods represent mostly human needs, their worship is not exclusive and all races can give their devotion and receive the gods’ gifts in return.
Each Greater God represents a Portfolio or Domain of worship.
