The Player's Role in Pantheon's Story

The Risen Heroes of Terminus

Every player in the Pantheon universe is a “fallen hero” that has “risen” upon Terminus to begin new adventures in a strange land. When the planar collisions erupted and fragments of worlds were transported to Terminus, many lives were lost along the way, left adrift within the void between here and there. Many of these souls were too fragile to survive and were lost forever. But for those who were strong enough, divine rescue would come. Nexus did not abandon those souls and so she reached into the void in search of the fallen heroes. Plucking them from a sea of nothing she deposited them upon her world of Terminus. There the fallen have risen and are left to discover the fates of the fragments of their origin worlds that most assuredly preceded their arrival centuries before. But their ties to Terminus not only rest in chunks of home worlds, but also the legendary artifacts that each hero once called their own. Lost in the world of worlds, their artifacts wait to be reclaimed, as do those of other heroes that were not so fortunate to find refuge upon the world of Terminus.

      I can't wait to be pulled from the void and planted on Terminus!

      Maybe something like a guild Co-op, 2 - 4 guilds working in different parts of the world to come together to fight an epic battle as a team.

      Will we see a post on guild rolls? I see a lot of guilds represented in the comments across this kick start. I myself have put out a call to 6 old guild leaders of VG from the launch days to current and have gotten a great response thus far. Old lost friends are coming back to life and hope for gaming over Pantheon. Keep up the great work.

      @ Maric: Lo there do I see my father, Lo there do I see my mother, my Sisters and my brothers , Lo there do I see the line of my people, back to the beginning. Lo, they do call me, they bid me take my place among them, in the halls of Valhalla, where the brave may live forever

      So we arrive a few hundred years after the world has been pieced together and created, are we the first people here or did people come before us and have been born, lived their whole lives, and died on this new world? I would like to think there is already a working ecology when we arrive.

      So Terminus is kind of like Valhalla? Interesting concept.

      I really like the lore and background story that has been revealed so far. This definitely has an epic feel to it.
