Concept Art: The Young Gods

There are many gods who pass through Terra Dimentica, The Old Gods remain in the land as they are bound to it but some of the gods who visit Terra Dimentica choose to make their place there as well. Any who choose to remain on Terra Dimentica become one of The Young Gods. The two who have remained in the land longest only leaving when they need to are Sangue Scuro and Aurum Lingua. These two stay as the lands where they were once worshipped have long since died and their names have been forgotten by all others. They may visit between different worlds and do when asked to by The Old Gods but are content to stay in Terra Dimentica for the majority of their time.

Sangue Scuro- God of the hunt. The cacciatore often praise him when they are successful in their hunts and the priestesses leave him offerings when they venture out with the hunters of their tribes. Sangue possesses immeasurable skill with any weapon he picks up but he only ever carries one. A huge sword three times the size of any creature he may encounter. He travels far across Terra Dimentica seeking out fights and creatures with whom he may test his skill. If he hears of any visitors to the land who may be worthy opponents he tracks them and battles them to determine his skill. He tends to mostly come to the aide of Cecita as he finds the visions of the future useful, especially if they lead to an enemy whom he can fight. His name means ‘dark blood’ as it is through the spilling of blood that he feels most powerful and worshipped. He acts as the protector of Terra Dimentica and fends off any hostile creatures from other worlds.

Aurum Lingua- Goddess of victory in battle. Aurum is a somewhat reckless god and follows the beat of her own drum. She has travelled further than most gods and seen more worlds than any others. After the destruction of  her own world she spent many millennia traveling across different universes. During this time she intervened in many different wars and battles altering their outcome and changing the fates of many worlds. She enjoys observing worlds and seeing the lives of others play out before her. She chose to remain on Terra Dimentica as it was the most peaceful location she had ever come across she found much joy in observing the lives of the creatures who lived there and became close to Notte Stellata. She acts as eyes and ears and relays all that she sees to it. She enjoys talking with the god and shares many of the old stories of her life during their talks. Being unable to speak any lie Aurum’s name means ‘gold tongue’ as she may only say what is true. The plays the roles of judge and jury for any disputes which may occur in Terra Dimentica as her inability to lie also lets her sense when those around her are lying.Onyx Demon

Notte Stellata- The God of night skies. It is an observer of all that happens around it. Watching the dealings that go on between other gods and the creatures of Terra Dimentica is made easier by this gods ability to become invisible. Notte Stellata is the god most frequently praised by the creatures of Pallude who value the starry night skies for hunting in the darkness. It is from this that Notte Stellata gains it’s name meaning ‘starry night’.

Cecita- The God of mists and fog. Hiding amongst the misty ruins of it’s fallen temple, Cecita is the most reclusive of The Old Gods and only ventures to the edge of it’s realm when it wishes to make a request of one of The Young Gods. Even when Cecita does venture away from it’s hidden sanctuary it is almost impossible to see what this God looks like as it shrouds itself in soft tendrils of fog as if it were wearing a robe. Named after it’s white unseeing eyes Cecita’s name means ‘blind’. However it is this blindness to the present that allows Cecita to receive visions of the future.

Tempesta- The God of storms. It’s temples remain strong and stand upright and tall on the edge of Cerchio Degli Dei reaching in towards the mountains of Nessuna. Tempesta is actively worshipped by both species of Volo who make their homes in Nessuna. They praise this god for giving them strong winds upon which to fly. To show their thanks they choose to leave offerings of beautiful flowers and sweet fruits and berries which are incredibly rare in the mountains. Tempesta is an aggressive god and will frequently summon storms of snow and hail which can reach far across Terra Dimentica until it is appeased. It usually takes the intervention of one of The Young Gods to calm one of Tempesta’s rages. Taking it’s name from the great tempests it can conjure tempest is a god not often approached by any except the Volo who worship it. Tempesta

Concept Art: Terra Dimentica’s Hunters

Cacciatore- The most widely travelled creatures on Terra Dimentica. They travel in small groups of about 6 a piece and always bring one of their priestesses with them so that their quests, missions and hunts will be blessed by The Gods. They are the only creatures on Terra Dimentica to actively seek out the The Gods, both the Young ones and the Old ones. They are strongly committed to serving The Gods and will constantly seek new ways to please them. They were thick heavy clothes in various layers so that more can be donned in colder areas and then shed in warmer parts of the land. The create thick metal armor from the strong rare metals some of The Young Gods have gifted to them for their aide in the past. The cacciatore are hunters by nature and this is how they came by their name which means ‘hunter’.
