Paradoxion – The First God, the Ancient, the Divine Machine

True Neutral God of Creation, Judgement, Knowledge, and Prophecy.

Domains: Artifice, Destruction, Earth, Knowledge, Protection.  Favored Weapon: Longspear.

Paradoxion symbolizes life’s apparent contradictions. He teaches Wholeness, and that only through deconstruction, analysis, and reconstruction can one truly appreciate one’s existence. The First God’s tenants are broad beyond the horizon, and so his followers come from all walks of life. Doxion clerics favor grey garb, and are typically known for their indiscriminate acceptance of all worldly things.


The Precepts

“The First God sat suspended in the Welkin.

Tovech – The Lord King, the Highest Knight, the Noble One

Lawful Good God of Honor, Justice, Family, Valor, and Rulership.

Domains: Community, Good, Law, Nobility, War.  Favored Weapon: Longspear.

As he strode across Argethen, cities and kingdoms rose from Tovech’s steps. He is the father, and defender of Civilization. The Lord King teaches the glory of community, faith in one’s family, and the honor of preference. Nobles, warriors and champions frequently strive to emulate his greatness, and tournaments are often held in his name. Vechian clerics are typically clad in heavy armor, and do not cloister themselves away from Argethen’s evils.

Dialyn – The Balance, the Chained Eye, the Torn One

Lawful Neutral Goddess of Balance, Fate, Freedom, and Communication.

Domains: Animal, Liberation, Luck, Magic, Rune.  Favored Weapon: Two-Bladed Sword.

She who stands between is the controller of fate, and the epitome of sacrifice. Dialyn demands Balance, even of her brothers, and she has given up what she cherished most to ensure her will be done. Those who suffer great loss often turn to Dialyn, hoping she will grant them respite. Some druid sects also revere her strict codes. Clerics of the Chained Eye wear pale blue, ceremoniously bind their hands or arms in reverence, and often serve as prophets.

Marchaen – The Proud, the Betrayer, the Maned One

Lawful Evil God of Pride, Betrayal, Logic, Tyranny, and Trickery.

Domains: Charm, Evil, Law, Strength, Trickery.  Favored Weapon: Morningstar.
