Pathfinder: Tales of Tyrthes
The people of Tyrthes pray to a myriad of gods and pantheons. The Sethyrrian’s claim their God-Emperor is truly reborn after death, choosing a new vessel from which to lead His people to their destiny. The Fractured Lands pray to as many gods as there are city-states and nations. Stranger cultures worship no gods at all, or many gods as one.
While some places are entirely untouched by the divine, others, such as the Empire of Sethyrr, are faced with the stark reality that there are forces beyond mortal comprehension with an interest in Tyrthes. Celestial’s, demons, and gods all exist. The question is what makes a god. To the Sethyrr, their god is the only true god. The elves worship no gods, but they acknowledge and pay homage to the many spirits that other races call demons and gods. Those who treat directly with such powers claim the difference between god, celestial, and demon is only in how much power the being holds; they all descend from the same cosmic beginning.
Most people point to the skies as proof of the gods. Each celestial creature, god, demon, or spirit, is linked to a celestial body in the sky. Warlocks, witches, and cultists claim there is great power to be found from studying the stars and planets, for in doing so they find the secret names of beings older the Tyrthes itself.
