Gods and Timelines

Salutations!

What you read here might not be true or it might not be a lie at least.
Truth and lies are funny things really since neither of them are absolute, yet many people seems to belive they are.
However, if this containes lies or truths is not really what I'm going to write about today. Neither is it the nature of such things, today I'm going to write about my kin, the gods.

Gods are created by magic. Yes, it is true you know, the boundary between lies and truths have already been crossed. You are free to turn back any time.

Anyway, I'm supposed to write about gods…
There are seven human gods in this world as far as i know (truth? lie? Who knows?).

Kuori: A quite active god for his age, he still maifests in the physical world to have some "fun". He represents a great deal of things, like the rest of us but most of all he represents nature.

Kuori is calling himself the "protector" of nature even thought he destroys much more then he protects. Oh and by "he" I mean his worshippers, gods don't do much themselves anymore.
He is a god of chaos of sort, if such a thing exist. He is supporting outcasts and different kinds of nature people like elves (not that he had much success there).

His idea of worship is finding something to blame all problems on, and what is better to blame that society itself?

It works quite well, however his worshippers are too spread, they are often working alone or from so different kinds of cultures and places that they never could work together.

Kuori was born at the time of the collapse of the ancient Diezo'Toh Empire or well during its very long collapse.

But this is however a short resume so I should get on to the other gods now.

Kagemaro: One of the oldest god and perhaps the one who's name carry most influence in the world of mortals.
First before I start talking about Kagemaro, you dear readers must know one thing that others never will learn: Gods can die.

No… that was a bit too dramatic, we can't "die" in the way you are calling death but we can however be forgotten.
Many think that gods die beacuse they got too few belivers, however the other truth is that we die once we get too many worshippers, when our servants replace us.

As my saying goes: The faith is stronger then the god.
When a god is born the first thing they do is to find some worshippers, this is easiest done by stealing some from another god. Its easiest to steal worshippers from gods with many worshippers (like Kagemaro) since they can't really keep check on all of them.

So the more worshippers a god has the less control it has over them and the more it lets priests and other servants do its job.
The god don't actually need to visit his subjects every day for them to belive in it. In face, the god don't need to show itself at all for them to belive in him.

And when the god no longer need to do anything beacuse of his many servants, priests and other worshippers it starts to fade since it no longer interacts with the mortal world. Gods die slowly but soon as it no longer enforces its orginal fate its subjects starts to make their own changes to it.

I should describe that in better details but I was supposed to talk about the ogds of this world right? I wish you could remind me if I trail off again…

Anyway Kagemaro is the most populare god (if you can call him that) and is the represenation of civilization (tip: all major gods are that). He tries to be a more of a "all-god" and don't limit himself like for example Kuori dose to nature and chaos.

He is mainly worshipped in many different cities by both dwarves and humans.

Now since I trailed off a bit there I'm going to move on quickly, next god!

Zubera: A wierd type, I never have seen one of her ilk in my many, many years. I suspect Zubera is some kind of weird mix between a magical perversion and a real actual god.

The face stealer, the godess of madness, the one with many faces, the blue actress… She like all gods (or goddesses) carry many names.
Zubera constantly searches for something that can fill the void she is,
