Endless Blue – Week 90.6 – Jetsam: Home of the Gods   Leave a comment

Cosmology

Home of the Gods

The Gods of Elqua are unique in that their realm is the very waters around their worshipers.  There is no equivalent to a Mount Olympus off of some abyssal trench or a perfect realm nestled in another dimension.  The gods of the Pantheon are found in the very waters of the Endless Blue.  Not any one set spot, but freely roaming the oceans like the other denizens of the water world.  The Gods are out there, in the blue, to be experienced by the worthy, the unlucky, or the damned.

The souls of the departed pisceans are believed to either remain, disembodied, among the currents (such as with Ancestor Worshipers) or are absorbed by their higher power (like with those that believe in the Source of all life).  This is where the Church of Olyhydra in different from her deific brethren: She promises her loyal followers an eternal respite from strife as they bask in her presence.  Even the Pantheon, with all its lessons and stories, only insinuates that death is the final end.  Olyhydra promises there is something more, and to a subjugated populace, that is an enticing idea.
