Neradian Pantheon

The Many Faces of the Gods

There seem to be multitudes of religious faiths and cults in the world, but the truth that any religious scholar must admit is that the divine essence displays many facets of the same primordial powers. Some call the pantheon a family, though there is no patriarch, only fiefdoms and squabbles. For some ancient scholars, the multiverse is ruled in pairs, for each God, somewhere nearby by, his reflection, a darker, demonic heart that lurks in savagery. Mithras and Danzig, Horned Lords both, one a symbol of honor and strength, the other of savagery and tyranny; Demeter and Torog: health and disease; Paladine and Ouroboros, the Heavens and the Depths; Rhiannon and Orcus; Daladon and Crom; all oppositional in the matrix of reality, all uncomfortably similar, like twin siblings born of the same egg.
