PEOPLE - GODS, GODDESSES, AND CREATURES OF THE ID

  • GOD PURPOSE: The ID gods and goddesses believe their purpose is linked to human existence and they must ensure a proper balance of good to evil so humans don't destroy one another or become so complacent that they can't survive. All gods have an assigned power with a purpose linked to mankind, good or evil. All except one, Zeus' Enforcer, the one born with the ability to kill other gods without using King-maker ambrosia. Rumors say one Enforcer exists in each realm (Primus, Seas, Underworld), and their power will reveal itself to save their respective kings. This prophesy keeps the gods "honest" because no one knows when an Enforcer will reveal itself. King Zeus is content that folks think unknown Enforcers exist within the midst of the kingdoms, because it prevent someone from trying to overthrow him.

  • KINGDOMS: Zeus is the overall leader of the ID. He keeps his role by the agreements of all gods and goddesses, to include the primordial gods and elders. He holds the title King of the Gods. A few of the elder gods resisted the appointment of Zeus. Some battled and lost, like the Titans. Before Zeus ingested King-maker ambrosia to assume his throne, the elder storm god Typholus tried to kill him, but Zeus prevailed and sentenced Typholus to eternity in Tartarus. Zeus’ brother, Poseidon, took the title King of the Seas, a delegation by Zeus to keep different parts of the earth and human existence working efficiently. Hades, another brother of Zeus, has the title King of the Underworld, and holds autonomy in that realm which physically exists below the earth’s surface. It has a transitional dimension attribute, not quite in the human dimension, and not quite in the god dimension, but in its own as a sub-set of the god dimension. Because of this, The Underworld keeps the brilliance of the human dimension except for one particular area. Humans possessing some god-quality, predominantly mortal but possessing a strain of god DNA, can breach the barrier between The Underworld and the human dimension, but not into the full god dimension, only the Underworld.

  • ROLES AS DIETIES: In ancient times, the gods took on the roles of deities to help give moral compass to the burgeoning earth population, but never did feed off human worship as much as legend says. As humans developed other religions, the gods faded into obscurity but still worked for the overall good of mankind. Some gods choose to live in the human dimension, especially if their work keeps them in it for long durations or requires many inter-dimensional crossings which deplete god powers. If they do, they must blend in with humankind.

  • WEAKNESSES: Human wine can buzz a god, for reasons unknown, but will never fully intoxicate them. Likewise, some plant toxins in the human dimension can produce physical reactions in a god, thanks to Demeter’s period of insanity after Persephone’s first trip to the Underworld kingdom, but the effects never kill gods. Gods can have human-like emotions, reactions, and bodily processes. Even more so if they choose to exist in a human form. So, they can vomit, pee, get stomach aches, etc., and feel pain. Gods can also get injured by other gods, and if they’ve recently had an ambrosia ration, can heal themselves quickly, depending on the severity of the wound. There are gods who can heal or mask pain for their immortal peers.

  • ALIEN ORIGINS: Some gods wonder if they have extra-terrestrial roots, but only Zeus and a few primordial gods know the truth, agreeing to keep it secret to prevent their members from seeking out the truth away from the Earth, and their duties.
