    Default Make a mini God

    In the Home Brew I'm cooking up there is a Pantheon worshipped as a collective. They all share the Chaos domain and I would like to give each of them their own individual domain. Clerics of these lesser gods worship the entire pantheon and so are not limited by having to take the chaos domain.

    So then, what I ask of you is to come up with a one domain deity, with name, and a little bit of a back story. Bonus points if you come back later and tie your mini-god's backstory in with someone else's.

    Name: Gliss, the Summer Sun, the Heathen Frolic
    Domain: Summer
    History: Gliss is the patron god of the hottest season of the year and the festivals that happen during those warm nights. He encourages excessive enjoyment of life, change for the better, and passionate pursuit of one's interests, whether those interests are magic, farming, or that pretty girl down the street.

    I try and bring in things from all the Lords of Creation games whenever possible. (And it just so happens that Chaotic Good/Neutral gods are kind of my thing.)

    Description

    Ringgel was once a gnome, a cheerful one at that a very long time ago, with a special gift for illusions like only a few have had in the history of magic. As every other gnome he has many names, although Ringgel is his favorite because his mother gave it to him, he frequently change it when talking about himself, thus he is also Killy, Lippo, Zippo, Typpo, Kippo (he really liked those names ending on ippo) and ultimately Schatten and Dunkelheit.

    Blessed by Garl as he was he feared nothing and daringly traveled seeking adventures, but even fortune has its limits as Killy fell lost into the City of Shadows: Dunkelheim, a millenia ago, a strange edification created by the shadowstuff in the exact center of the plane of shadow, or more precisely: nowhere.

    Imprisoned as he was he started to know fear and coldness, and when he felt the absence of Garl in his heart he became one with the shadows around him. A few hundred of years later the shadow creatures started to worship him, and so the Dunkelheim became his home, then he shaped the city to look like everything all lost travelers of the shadow plane wanted to find.

    Since then he became a Deity, a cold one at that, a fearful and frightening one but ultimately a shadowy one, like all of his worshipers. In some cities parents scare the children with the story of the shadow gnome, lurking in cold dark corners if the little ones continue playing once the sun has set.

    Killy seem to hate Gliss, since he is one with the shadows and can only feel coldness, but in secrecy he envies the heat that he felt in his past life and all that Gliss represents. He always hides when there's light and heat around him, and has allowed almost all members of the pantheon to pass through his city of shades and coldness when necessary (he even hides one of them in the endless labyrinth of shadows buried deep within the city to protect her from another god), between the ones that are not allowed to enter the city is of course Gliss.

    Lippo has made several Simulacrum of himself out of the cold ice of the shadowstuff, but all of the created creatures shade one difference with the real one, sometimes a twitching eye, perhaps a visible scar, maybe a missing finger. It doesn't matter if you see a Simulacrum or the real one, he is usually invisible (Superior Invisibility) around his copy and commands him telepathically from a short distance.
