Herein lies the collected mythology of the gods and goddesses that exert their divine will upon the planes of existence, as compiled by the Scribes of Klutaal. References include the historical documents, religious scriptures, and oral traditions of the many splinters of our realm. When evidence suggested truth, legends and fables informed our research as well.


The gods and goddesses inhabit the Beyond but exert their influence on the planes of existence through the subtle manipulation of—-and, rarely, direct intervention in—mortal affairs. The true form of these deities is an enigma, but when they manifest in the mortal realms, they often assume avatars that reflect the aesthetic and cultural values of their followers.

Most deities consider the planes their sandbox and mortals their playthings, and their interactions are often motivated by self-interest as they jostle for power and seek to best one another in a cosmic game of strategy. However, some of the more benevolent deities aspire to nurture and protect the mortal realms, guiding their inhabitants toward prosperity and enlightenment.

In these realms, practitioners of magic are able to channel raw mana to cast spells or combine it with the elements to increase its potential. In the Beyond, however, mana and the elements are more than just constituents of magic; they are the very lifeblood that courses through the gods and goddesses themselves. Most deities are aligned with an element that corresponds to their own elemental composition, while those that are made of mana but lack an element comprise the minor gods. Similarly, each holds dominion over specific spheres of influence either within an element’s domain or—as with the minor gods—distinct from the elements. It is through these spheres of influence that they manipulate the mortal realms, advancing their agendas and counteracting those of their rivals in a complex interplay of divine wills.

Consequently, in the Splinterlands—as in many of the other realms throughout the planes of existence—religion plays an integral role in daily life. Through ritual, prayer, and offerings, the faithful call upon their deity’s favor to cast spells or seek divine aid. Elaborate churches and temples are built in their honor. Festivals and seasonal holidays celebrate them. Sacrifices are made, souls are given, and wars are fought in their name.

However, not all mortals venerate these deities. Some blame misfortune and prayers unanswered on the whims of the divine, lending to animosity of their machinations. Others believe the gods and goddesses to be allegorical—parables to explain the unexplainable or justify cruelty both experienced and dealt. The controversy surrounding the true nature of divinity often leads to tensions and, sometimes, as with religion, to war.

All the while, the deities watch on from their domains in the Beyond. Some weep. Some laugh. For they are divine and eternal, regardless of the beliefs of mortals.
