New God/Prototype God Profile

Post by MidgetNinja on Thu Jun 03, 2010 3:39 am

Name:
<None, referred to by title alone>

Title(s):
The Everpit<most common>, AKA The Omnivoid, AKA The AllAbyss, or simply sometimes The Pit

Appearance:
The Pit is most commonly seen as a great gaping hole in the ground with a great deal of foreboding emanating from it, and a sinister aura that could drive most men to madness. A unnatural darkness obscures all but the ring of the pit, as if looking into a hole in the fabric of the universe. A very simple, yet entirely disturbing appearance indeed. Any truer vision of perception than this has never been recorded, as those who stare to long into the Abyss of The Pit inevitably go mad.

Origins:
No one is sure where worship of The Pit, began but bits and pieces of it's history can be traced back to the beginnings of The Great War. The founders of the religion were more than likely among the survivors of The Fall, and indeed this theory is cooperated by written testimonials from the survivors describing The Fall, as '...a great pit tearing through the center of everything, and swallowing the whole of the world away into oblivion...' from this text it can be assumed that the worship of the entity that had seemingly destroyed their homes, and indeed everything most of them had ever known, can be perceived as a sort of a massed psychological break amongst many of the people of the former north, which seems to be the only logical reasoning why the worship of this...entity...ever came about in the first place...

Worshipers:
Most followers of the pit are of the lower class, in both terms of peasants and nobility. The most commonly attracted are the lowest of the low, in all meanings of the phrase, with prevalent character traits being a mixture of apathy and nihilism. The religion itself is often look down upon by most nonbelievers, but for the most part it is generally regarded with a sort of disinterested disregard.

Beliefs:
The most unifying underlining theme in the worship of The Pit is the inevitability of 'all are made one in The Pit,' which can mean many things depending on which sermon you listen too although the most used interpretations tending towards the ideal that all acts of life are meaningless in the face of inevitably provided by the pit, and living with this despair is seen as what prepares us for what comes next. Although some hold the belief that a peaceful nirvana awaits them after death, an eternity of togetherness floating forever in the dark safety of the Pit, a much more sinister light waits at the end of this tunnel. For you see even The Pit has a bottom, and even after an eternity of falling, that too is inevitable, what exactly lies at the bottom has literally driven many men insane in their quest to find out, but that perhaps is the ultimate mystery of The Pit. All things considered, despite the bleak despairing outlook of the religion as a whole, buried deep beneath it all is still an underlining hope, even in the face of inevitability, perhaps especially in the face of inevitability...

Divine Acts:
Many are the mysteries of The Pit, it's purposes, and it's actions...

For the most part it seems...content...merely to exist as it does on it's own plane, lying passive and apathetic for centuries.

But for every so often it finds something...something in the corporeal plane it likes, weather it is an entire village, or merely a single individual...and then it stirs...

Thus begins the Hollowing, as agents of The Pit come to Ara'neil in their guise as the Cracks, seemingly sentient and moving holes in reality itself they bear the messages of The Pit to the Chosen, whose name suggest and importance that really does not exist. In truth the Chosen are merely the owners of the flesh the Cracks take for themselves. In their mortal grab the cracks bestow the Chosen with the might of ten men, and a perseverance that defies any but the greatest of wounds. The price, however, is steep, long blood stained infected gashes are rent across the Chosen's flesh a sign of their unwilling pact. What happens to their soul is hard to say, but the universal opinion is that it is swallowed by The Pit.

Once upon the earth the job of the Crack's is two fold, select the Chosen, isolate the area...

Entire villages, and in much rarer cases cities, have been known to...disappear...in this manner, leaving nothing but a desolate crater were there was once life. For you see, by the time the area of the Hollowing has been sealed, The Pit deems fit to send a part of himself to the mortal plane, in the guise of a bottomless hole...as always, in the center of the Hollowing. Truthfully it is the only way to...take...what it wants...

The Chosen's job at this point is very simple...eliminate any resistance, begin the harvest...

As each piece of the whole is...feed...to it The Pit grows in size, until even the Chosen as swallowed by it's all consuming blackness...

And then...it disappears taking with it all it has claimed, and a little extra...to be made one in the Pit.

Never has the connection with this event been drawn by and outsider to the religion...but the believers...they know...somehow...they always know.

Nice, still like it. I think that the swallowing would be a majorly rare event, considering it would take a lot of power that a god of a somewhat small group of followers seldom gets to do what it does.

True on several accounts, but I imagine also gains a hefty amount of power from said incursions...admittedly from sacrifices made it itself, but hey you gotta spend money to make.

Not to mention the believers aware of the event, as they all usually are, often feed the god even more belief.

That being said it really is more of a minor god then anything else...I mean, I imagine it MIGHT be able to claim a section of the ever-plain for it's own if it wanted too, but it's power is limited by it's own apathy, which kinda ironic when you think about it.

The Everplane... MN, the Everplane is already completely dominated by the Elements, and, in fact, they are the only powers that can ever occupy the Everplane, unless they were somehow incredibly weakened. Unless you really meant the Expanse.

Bah they all blur together at some point...

And yes I meant the expanse, I figured you would be able to deduce that without me having to tell you that.
