The Gods

The Gods Have Spoken offers a fresh take on the gods, not just a rehash of the Greco-Roman pantheons, but new pantheons influenced by history and religions from around the world.

The followers of the Old Gods were long ago forced out of their lands and into the wild places . Today druids and elves keep the faith alive, while cults of the Old Gods seep back into the teaming cities where once they were banished. The world tree and nature are central to the pantheon.

The followers of the pyramid-building Thirsty Gods came across the sea and pushed out the faith of the Old Gods. A warlike people, they too have fallen to more recent invaders. Still the pantheons continues to be followed in many places, including the halls of the dwarves.

The Bright Gods are worshiped by the newest conquerors of the worlds of men. Their sacred number is three, and the gods of their pantheon are divided into three groups of three. Bits of the older pantheons have been incorporated into the current beliefs and rituals of the Bright Gods.

Add these gods to your world, or take bits and pieces that work best for your campaign.

Character Options

The Gods Have Spoken includes exciting new character options, allowing players to be connected to the gods and have that matter at the table. There are options for everyone, plus a specific focus on clerics, druids, paladins, and rangers.

NOTE: Neither The Sun Below nor Gods and Icons are 5E. The Sun Below is for the Numenera roleplaying game, and Gods and Icons for the 13th Age roleplaying game.

HOW TO PURCHASE AN ADD-ON

Add the amount of the add-on to your pledge before the Kickstarter ends. When we send out the Backer Survey, we'll ask what add-ons that you paid for you want.

Risks and challenges

We've done this before, in our successful Kickstarter of Gods and Icons.

Much of the text is already written and edited. We have art ready to go. The only reason we are estimating delivery for this summer is so we can allow for stretch goals that will bring even more content into the project.

All that said, we are a small team. Anything that sidelines one of us could impact our schedule.
