Gods and Domains

Here follows an abridged list of some of the major gods in Allu. There are LOTS of gods — one for every star in the sky, in fact — and if you don’t like one on the list, feel free to invent one and pitch it to me.

You’ll notice that some of these gods also appear in Earth mythology. There’s a reason for that; it’s alluded to here, but I’ll see if you can work it out for yourselves before I spill every little bean.
