    Your pets amuse me brother, such curious creatures they are. It will be intresting to see how they fare in battle.

    What is the consensus on the matter of Gogrol's share? Do the gods feel he has taken too much?
    Elbonian, you must choose again; the heart has already been taken.

    Aye, The realms of both death and magicks are both very vast, I fear he has too much power. Also, magick is a difficult to kill with a quick stab, so I might be biased.

    I meant a small place, away from the World, where I may Work in Peace.

    As for battle, I will only permit war between species, for I Hear terrible tales of creatures that war upon themselves and Endure endless chaos because of such foolishness.
    But Fear not O Brother, they shall all strive for greater things, by War and by Intrigue.

    For the price of one of my novels (Hardback, historical/alternative historical/dinosaurs) I can get 2 or 3 Manga for the price of my book. I think its about what you can afford and stuff.

    While I have infinite love for a good war I see the wisdom in your words. I shall only instill agression to the species(Perhaps you should make a list, I like to know who I am making kill eachother.) that are different from eachother. For now.

    I do not take too much, I have meerly formed energy, what would energy be without purpose and direction? It would be nothing. Yet the amorphorus energy can become strong and powerful through the directions of other domains. I do not control all energy, but only a part.

    It is with certianty which I say this, as all things in my domain are certian. It is the end with which all things must flow. I am not covetous of my power, as others might think so. Throngarth can attest so, what is aggression without death? Does he take my power when it causes death? No! He gives meaning to this domain, gives it power and strength for which it can be used!

    Some may say that I will hoard my power, but this is not the case



    [ooc: When we make nations, I am totaly taking "taxes". Because what is cooler than being the God of Death and Taxes?]

    While my brother our works are intertwined and I have an immense respect for your wisdom and counsel, I fear having rule over both death and magick is too much power for one of us. Might I suggest passing on the magick to another brother or possibly our first sister.

    From the eyes, I take the lenses, focusing Light to make Heat, and Fire. The wet jelley of the vitreous humour becomes the raging tidal wave; the bubble underneath the lens becomes the howling winds of the hurricane.

    The destructive power of Earth I leave to that who is its domain.

    And the Light spread out throughout infitinity of reality, and it fell upon the barren mountains and plateaus, and their majesty was Illuminated. But in the valleys and crevasses the Light did not shine so brightly, and in some places the Light did not shine at all. And where once the World was unified in absence of Light, it was now divided by where the Light shone, and where it shone not. And so an inequality was brought upon the First World.

    ((Leaving sort of a gap here if someone wishes to go towards Darkness/Shadow , and perhaps consider a way day/night comes into play. I could of course somehow turn into the God of Light and Darkness (I can see a two-faced god like that, with inner conflicts) as well of course. I'm going to have to wait and find out what happens though, because it's late and i need me some sleep.))

    ((Oh and on the Death taking a large share thing, it wasn't meant as an ooc gripe, just an ic chance to start up some conflict. The god of death is supposed to take a large slice, death is a large part. Still, with him gutting the fish, it offers a nice "wtf" chance for whoever is planning to side against death))

    First Of All will be the Fish, in Honour and Remembrance of our great Origin, and they shall be matchless Benefactors to all Others. But I will not create more before the World is Complete.

    Where is Air, and Water, this plane is barren yet...

    If nessesity demands it, bring togother a council, and at that time we will make provisions with what is to be done.

    Until that time, we must act in good faith.

    Seeing the inequity of the land, the light and the shadow, some spots blessed more than others, Gorgrol stood, and opened a hole above and a hole below the world. In the space above the world he placed magic, an endless resovoir with which the least and the most could draw upon. Drawing on magic would not be easy, but would be open to all, if even in small ways. This curbed the inequity, gave power and meaning to shadow, crafting illusions, and in the absence of illusion, in the light, formed divination. The earth became strong and hard, a giver and protector. All the schools of magic were formed, and open to all.

    Below the world, he placed death. And death was outside the world, locked and sealed off. Death was nothing, and end, the complete end. Gringrol went into death and sought out the deaths of all his brothers and sisters. He took their deaths and sealed them tight in a cocoon of magic. One by one he presented his Brothers and Sisters with their deaths, abdicating his power of them. Thus, the Gods became immortal or mortal as their choosing.

    It would be a sad irony if this were to become a desert world.

    Currently we have a big dry empty expanse of terrain with dead fish lying everywhere.

    My brother thank you for allowing me the choice of mortaliity or immortality. I have made my decision, I am to be mortal. For how can one know the thrill of battle when you cannot bleed. However I do wonder if you could postpone my death of age. I do not wish to die an old man, weak and frail.

    After making this most important decision, Throngarth looks upon the unfinished plane. If the lord of Earth permits I wish to change our world with a little....conflict.

    Would I be overstepping my bounds if I claimed(Even how humaliating it's orgin may be) the realm of water? The ocean can have mighty waves that can tear asunder even the mightiest of fleets, a fact that I have a connection with.[/i]

    We have no oceans, or sandy deserts. Sand takes time, or divine intervention.
    Throngrarth may take the realm of water, at least temporarily. Fill the lowlands with mighty oceans! Then, draw up a preliminary coastal map for divine review.

    Die when you want, it is not my matter anymore, but yours. You hold your death, and you may do with it as you please

    Does the exact position of every mountain and valley really matter? Suffice it to say that my influence creates the valleys, and Earth's creates the mountains, and that's that.
