The final season of the Void Saga rolls forward on the Critical Hit podcast! Now, the floodgates are open, and old deities arise from their slumber. Who are these new gods? Take the jump for a rundown of who our heroes might meet this season.

Malgublyet

Domain: Traps, Cheating
Holy City: Snapstab
Symbol: Lizard
“O-Malgublyet King of Goblins, Smile upon us with your jagged smile. One day all Goblin-Kind will cheer in unison when our blood-stained king returns.”

Kord

Domain: Strength
Holy City: Path of Peonies
Symbol: A Closed Fist
Kord is one of the most well-documented slumbering gods. He has many active followers; both in the astral sea, and the natural world. His church remains active, if scattered. Kord is known to value righteousness and heroic strength.

Rafaga

Domain: Fire, Volcanoes
Holy City: Burning Mountain
Symbol: Volcano
Rafaga was always fond of scholars, or rather, of the way they would scream when she would burn their works.

Theen

Domain: Learning
Holy City: Sage’s Rectory
Theen’s holy city was once a bastion of magical and martial knowledge, ancient texts reference it frequently, both as a landmark and destination.
Symbol: Book

The Weeping Maiden

Domain: Sorrow
Holy City: The Thrice-Anointed Prison
Even in her heyday, it was easy to downplay The Weeping Maiden as a goddess of bad poetry and weepy teenagers. In reality though, The Maiden was always the patron of widowers, exiles and the screaming pain of losing a child.
Symbol: Eye with Three Tears

Gomma

Domain: Poison
Holy City: The Toad’s Boardwalk
Most information pertaining to Gomma comes through his vices. A gambler, glutton, and hoarder, this god almost always got his way.
Symbol: Fin

Great Tiger

Domain: Hunting
Holy City: Bleak Forest
Great Tiger was once a different god, but when he killed and ate the heart of Yosoch Nine-Heads (a colossal tiger-like monster), he took on a tiger-like aspect. Legend says if he ever finds a quarry greater than Yosoch he will change again.
Symbol: Three Stripes

The Bronze Prince

Domain: Neutrality
Holy City: The Hexagon Towers
Research suggests that there was a time when all gods operated under a codified system of laws. In those days all grievances were arbitrated by The Bronze Prince.
Symbol: Hexagon

Mesko

Domain: Medicine
Holy City: Writhing Nest
Mesko was a healer, trickster, and assassin, once part of a trinity of healing goddesses she is the only one whose writings remain.
Symbol: Two-headed Snake

Zorzoreecha

Domain: Disease
Holy City: Pools of Mourning
“Zorzoreecha, Long Fingered One, Maker of boils and inventor of fevers, spare us from your love and protect us from your touch.”
Symbol: Six Dots

Ulridan

Domain: Weaponry
Holy City: The Thousand Hectare Armory
Once there was an entire pantheon of Dwarven gods, greatest among them was Ulridan, the Smith-Warrior.
Symbol: A Stylized Sword

Phitanozoa

Domain: Monsters
Holy City: The Screaming Jungles
Research suggests that Phitanozoa did not start out as a goddess, but ascended through a huge act of violence, what exactly that action was is unclear.
Symbol: A Fangly Moon

Uranko

Domain: Travelers
Holy City: Waypoint
Back in the ancient days, Uranko’s blessing was a guarantee of a successful voyage. Unfortunately, tracking down the fickle god in order to acquire it was usually a quest in itself.
Symbol: A Goose

Mooroog

Domain: Decay
Holy City: Carrion Castle
“Men are faster than stone, but all things race to the loam.” – First line in the Book of Mooroog.
Symbol: Bone Triangle

About Author

Nobody really knows what Rodrigo's deal is. He is a perpetual enigma, an unknown quantity, the X factor. He's the new kid in school, the unlisted number, the person all your friends talk about, but you've never met. How can one person be so mysterious, you ask? THAT IS ALSO TOTALLY A MYSTERY! You can try to keep tabs on him on twitter by following @fearsomecritter, but that probably won't help.

  1. I’m not sure what challenge the party will have to face to prove their worth to Phitanozoa, but I get the sinking feeling that it rhymes with “shmarrasque.”
