From lithe to muscular
“Lastborn of the Divine yet with the strongest urge to manipulate World, Astral and all Races. Willingly teaching what they know with one hand meanwhile with the other grabbing discoveries for themselves, if it can aid them in their internal struggle.”
Suddenly blinks… swirls… a pattern…
Spinning in growing force… and sound…
Mighty energies contracted… and Gods came around!
When the Boriac connected the myriad of things found in The Void by Astral links, they began to use these links for Astravel, in an early crude form. They never imagined that these links would become a most annoying factor to deal with, but thats the Astral in a nutshell.
As the Boriac began to use the links for revisits rather than traverse The Void, the links gained directional momentum, gravity and an odd growing swirl. Busy roaming The Void and studuing findings the continued growing swirls went unnoticed, as did the pulsing of link-paths where they where close or intersected. It was not until the links began to retract their lenght and grow in mass and swirl, that Boriacs noticed it. As they didn’t fully understand what was going on, they actually enhanced the process of Gods being born by aiding retractions, thus giving intersections more mass to swirl.
At some point the Boriac and Vornir decided that they should try to remedy a couple of things in one sweep; The World had become a chaotic mess of opposite things being short-link neighbours. Mana was swirling away or breaking off as Magic Shard everywhere. It took its toll remembering where things where located, and much more. So they decided to use the World as a physical carpet and wrap the Astral in it.
And that was the real birth of the Gods, as the pulsing Astral Sea intersections gained a large burst of energies. Their already whimsical minds and swirling moods gained the ability to influence those who passed and grow by momentum and usage. This chaotic carpet of connecting threads thus became things urging for individual growth and power. And Boriacs teaching those of the Races they found how to Astravel, ensured a growing flow of traffic and thus momentum. Which eventually led to the mindful intersections being able to accomodate and aid travelers, so even more would prefer using their path.
Uncertain which was first, it ended though as we know. They became able to manifest themselves as physical beings drawing energy directly from their Astral link. And some more than others, enforcing their urge for more energy, traffic and praise in our World as well.

Its said that Gods are half the ancestors to the Wanderers, the other Human part is unclear. It could be Archaic but that would mean they also lived beyond The Rim.

Gods has an odd sense of humor, or it it really just part of existence for all other Races, to endure their whims and tests. Anyways, its a known fact that just as they aids with violence, they allow violence towards themselves. They are though of such power that we have never heard of one being killed by mortal Races, so when they Bend The Knee they honour the wits, guts and force of those attacking them in whats known as Raid. During these tests other Gods or servants might appear trying to aid their God.
When the God feels defeated it Bend The Knee, where they generally knock back all attackers, expecting these to honour their submission and recieve gifts and tokens of respect, known as Loot. Should attackers chose to raise up and continue in hope for great glory and Loot beyond comprehension, the attacked God will rage and most likely disperse its Human form. Using it as a large Mana Burst trying to suck everyone into the Astral, where it most likely will consume them all.
Often disguise themselves as Mortals and interact with Crafters.
