Pantheon / Narrative
aka: Narrative Lesser Gods

Narrative, Storytelling and Tropes

This house is commissioned by O-Haruhi-sama as a big library where stories are told from everyone's perspectives (including her own).

It connects in the middle with the Houses of Magic and Knowledge. Some of their residents used to belong in the House of Theater as a result of the separation.

The Book of Trope is localized right here.

The Storytelling Preservators

These are the guardians of the House of Narrative.

    Haruhi Suzumiya 
Haruhi Suzumiya, Goddess of Tropes (The Unstoppable Force, O-Haruhi-sama)

    Terry Pratchett 
Terry Pratchett, God of Trope Identificationnote  (Pterry, Professor Sir Terence David John Pratchett OBE, DLit, DLit, DLit, DLit, DLit, Blackboard Monitor)
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: Four giant elephants standing atop an extremely giant turtle
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Subversions, Deconstructions, Lampshade Hangings, Justifications
  • Domains: Creation, Death, Trickery
  • Followers: Gilgamesh (The Epic of Gilgamesh), Akira Takano (School Rumble), Othar Tryggvassen, Gentleman Adventurer! (Girl Genius), Thursday Next
  • Rivals: Tarquin thinks he's this. He's never really caught on to why Pterry plays with tropes just for the fun in identifying them, not for gaining power and undying fame through controlling them. Tarquin really doesn't get the point of being a Bard at all. Which is one reason it really isn't a rivalry, beyond the massive power difference between them and Pterry not even being bothered in the least by a Wrong Genre Savvy Big Bad Wannabe.
  • Created the Theory of Narrative Causality, the principle which ALL fictional realities have to one degree or another.
  • Shed his mortal coil in 12 March 2015 so he could dedicate more time to the fabric of narrativenote  itself. According to the Theory of Narrative Causality, this automatically earned him a promotion to Overdeitynote .
  • As a tribute to Terry Pratchett, the Radiant and the Dire Ancients decided to put their differences aside for a while to create a new artifact with some help from the Discworld. The Octarine Core. From this day forth, heroes of both the Radiant and the Dire sides may build it to show their gratitude for Terry.
  • Also has seats on the Main House and the House of Philosophy.

     Gen Urobuchi 
Gen Urobuchi, God of Deconstruction (Urobutcher, Gen The Butcher)

Ambiguous Ranks

    The Snarl 
The Snarl, Tangle of the Threads of Reality
  • Eldritch Abomination/Overdeity.
  • Symbol: A tangled mass of multicolored string.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Omnicidal
  • Portfolio: Continuity Snarl, The Dreaded, Eldritch Abomination.
  • Domain: Destruction, Chaos.
  • The Snarl allegedly arises from the confusion of what trolls are, among other things. However, closer examination has been met with more questions than answers...
  • After centuries in the void, the Snarl has shown itself in the Order of the Stick universe. While none of the gods from there know about its appearance yet, the leaders of all four Alliances, as well as the Trinity, are all concerned due to its sheer destructive capability (for reference, it was powerful enough to unmake an entire world in less than an hour, kill an entire alternate version of the Greek Pantheon, and can destroy souls).
    • Lord English has found out about the Snarl and plans to try to bend it to his will to wreak havoc. If he succeeds, the Pantheon will be in danger.

    Tony Schiavone 
Tony Schiavone, Master of Hyperbole
  • The Greatest God in the history of the Pantheon!
  • Symbol: The WCW Monday Nitro Logo.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Portfolio: Hyperbole, Two and Three-Announcer Teams, Shocking Swerves.
  • Domains: Theater, Competition, Temptation.
  • Former Superior: Vince Russo.
  • Opposed by: Jim Ross.
  • As an announcer, Schiavone never directly gets involved in any of the numerous fights that take place in the Pantheons. Instead, he offers his insights on the action alongside a jolly fat guy and a former manager who actually knows what he's doing. Schiavone is also incredibly easy to please, as evidence by his overwhelmingly positive review of a match between Iron Chef Morimoto and a bale of hay, which ended in a time-limit draw.
  • He's indirectly responsable for the ascension of Mick Foley. This is his response:
    Schiavone: Ha! That's gonna put some butts in the seats, heh.
