The Gods and Goddesses
Goddess of: Light
Personality: Kalina is a no-nonsense kind of deity. She is unforgiving and demands obedience and perfection. She is exceptionally arrogant and powerful, but underneath it all, really does love the mortals she oversees.
Mortal Manifestation: A tall, stately woman with a narrow face and sharp features. She wears a white, flowing robe and sandals. She walks with a haughty, self important grace.
Blessings: Getting Kalina’s blessing requires you to have superior morality and proper respect for the uppity goddess. Her blessings include protection, insight, and guidance.
Married to: Ben
Goddess of: Darkness
Personality: Myra is the most unresponsive of the deities. She could most accurately be described as sleepy, despite the fact she doesn’t really need to sleep. It takes immense effort to contact her, but if you can, she is very generous and kind hearted, though she can get very upset if awoken from one of her divine “naps.” Most of the time, she is relaxed, laid back, and cheerful.
Mortal Manifestation: An average height, plump woman with a round face and a sleepy smile. She wears a brown and black dress, with black satin slippers on her feet. She walks slowly and stumbles like a tired man would, on occasion.
Blessings: Getting Myra’s blessing not only requires contacting her, a feat unto itself, but also having a homey gift for her. She seems to have a penchant for beds, as in whisking them away to her kingdom in the divine realm. Her blessings include serenity and improved senses.
Banteeli'Ektuula'Naranbanana (or, Ben)
God of: Discord
Temper: Off the Wall
Personality: Think “The Joker,” but as a god, and less homicidal. Ben is very erratic and his mood can change in an instant, without warning or reason. He loves pranks and nature.
Mortal Manifestation: A straight backed, white haired old man with a beard. He has a wicked glint in his eyes and always has a crooked grin on. Wears a red jacket over a green tunic with brown trousers and heavy, mithril studded boots. He skips and waltzes as much as he walks.
Blessings: Ben has been known to give blessings to the cleverest people of the age, even without being contacted, but such happenings are rare, and unlikely. To get his blessing under normal circumstances, you’ll have to complete a little “mission” he’ll no doubt send you on. Success in this mission of mischief isn’t really what he’s after though. Mischief he can wreak on his own; he wants to be entertained, and if you do a good job… His blessings include music, affinity with nature, and luck above all.

The Seven Plains
? ? ? ? ? ?
At the moment the universe was created, both the Great God and the universe itself were divided. The Great God became the lesser gods and goddesses, four of which have been imprisoned for eternity since that moment, and the universe, our topic for now, was fractured and sealed into the seven Plains. When they were created the Plains were divided completely and travel between them was, for the most part, impossible. It still is today, but such paradoxes as the Wizard War, contact with the divines, and the use of magic itself show that the seals are not completely impenetrable. In fact, it is the bleed through energy from the other six Plains, centering on the Mortal Plain, which allows life as we know it to exist here. Now, a bit of info on each of the seven individually.
The Divine Plain
This is the Plain where the gods and goddesses reside, sort of like their private estate. Each deity has a designated piece of it carved out where they keep their tributes and godly possessions. It is also where the chosen heroes that they deem worthy reside for eternity, enjoying the bliss of divinity.
The Spirit Plain
This is where most people’s souls go upon death, awaiting rebirth or infinity, depending what you believe. It is said to be an endless field of white, populated by white clad figures from throughout time.
The Magic Plain
This Plain is considered by most to be nothing more than a massive reservoir of energy, and has never actually been seen or contacted other than by secondary means, such as using the energy for spells in this Plain.
The Mortal Plain
The one we live in. If you don’t know what the world you live in is like, I suggest taking some basic preschool classes. Or maybe you could look out the freakin’ window.
The Demonic Plain
Now we’re getting to the darker Plains. If spirits go to the Afterlife Plain, the demons would be their shadows. Living in a Plain where light has no place, the demons rule everything, and much like the Magic Plain, no one has ever been there or seen what it is like. Unlike the Magic Plain, we’re perfectly happy to keep it that way.
The second most mysterious Plain, the Void is a massive empty pit, and just like the Spirit Plain has its shadow, the Demonic Plain, this would have to be the Magic Plain’s shadow. Actually, the Void isn’t strictly “empty.” It is saturated with a form of energy that very, very few have come into contact with, much less studied. When the Void is contacted, it usually ends in catastrophe.
? ? ? ? ? ?
No one knows what lies in the Seventh Plain. All we know is that, if the Magic and Spirit Plains have shadows, and the Mortal Plain is the crux between all Plains, then logically, the Divine Plain must have its shadow as well. Its existence is merely speculation, but still, if it does exist… what lives there that could equal and oppose gods?
