Rahadoum and Aelyosos


Lost Omens Campaign Setting General Discussion


I was wondering how would the Rahadoumi feel about the Hero-Gods of Aelyosos?
They are not distant figures like most gods, but you can actually meet them and they are activly involved with their people.


They gave up all right to try and advise humanity the moment they gave their humanity up.

My take is that the Iblydan hero-gods and Rahadoum likely have some tension eased largely by how little they interact with one another; the Pure Legion and hero-gods are both (generally speaking) fairly content to govern their own respective regions. A hero-god would likely be allowed to visit Rahadoum so long as she did not promote her faith or perform overt acts of religious significance. As a whole, hero-gods straddle the line between demigod-hood and conventional mortality, and the Pure Legion likely views them with suspicion. Think of them as the least of many religious evils—no more worth worshipping than the true gods but not necessarily safe, either.

If you're referring to the hero-gods, your statement might be a little off. The principle Iblydan faiths revolve around mortals who have attained mythic power, but few of those mortals have the capacity to live forever; most just live 25–100% longer, give or take. While there's definitely a difference defined by both power and culture, the hero-gods remain very human (or cyclops, undine, etc.).


The two spots are quite a ways from one another. I'd be surprised if there was much interaction between them.

To be fair, the Rahadoumi can be as ignorant as anyone, hear the term "hero-god," and immediately start feeling a strange urge to commit some deicide.
