I love how the assassins end up killing each other.
Also, Hrod is shaping up to be quite the personage. Could you define him further?
And speaking of evil...
_____, God Of Evil (celestial god)
(Yes, I *still* cannot come up with good, original names on the fly. Help please.)
According to _____ and its priests, it is one of the Primal Forces Of The Universe, along with Good, and thus its power is almost supreme
, and it can never be destroyed without upsetting the Balance Between Good and Evil
This is not true.
The fact is that while Evil IS a fundamental concept of nearly all cultures, it has only existed as long as sentient life has. Before that, negative emotions such as fear and hate existed, but it took an actual conscious mind to make the (incorrect) assumption that everything that threatened life had a common origin; it was then that Evil was born. Other Celestials like to remind it of this, but it either doesn't believe them or pretends not to (lies are bad things too, after all.)
Its form has changed greatly over time. Like most celestials, it has no definite shape but goes along with whatever the majority of the populace assumes it should look like
. Lately it's taken a demonic form, but this is as false as the rest. And of course it will take any form that helps it carry out its schemes.
Evil sees itself as the Ultimate Evil
- and for the most part, it is, though most of its work is done through minions or unwitting agents, and not every destructive being is working for it. It will occasionally smite foes himself, just to remind the people of its existence.
Evil does everything just because
- it IS Evil, after all! Despite its grand schemes, it has no real purpose beyond ruining life for others. Someday it hopes to completely destroy the world! ...Not realizing it would then have absolutely nothing to do afterward. And of course, he combats the forces of good, especially its own counterpart's, Good's.
____ is intended as either the Big Bad
of the Campaign, or the Man Behind the Man
, or The Man Behind The Man Behind The Man, whatever suits your tastes. It might even just be a remote, heard of but never seen menace.
And some villains might actually just be pretending
to be going along with it, but in reality just be using its aid for their own agendas.
Evil is as worried about the loss of magic in the world as any of the gods (except few ones throw such spectacular hissy fits over the matter
) and is trying to secure as many of the Ley Line nodes for itself as it can. It has a lot of competition on this, though.
