An Empty Throne
These primeval titans known as the “Protogenoi” are the anthropomorphic elements of the universe which emerged at it creation. Few believe these forces to be true beings capable of thought beyond their primary purpose but as icons of creation stories of their relationships are told as parable and fable. Supposedly it is these creatures who forged the Vanished Gods. It is they who carved out the world as we know it from the primordial chaos to which all things would return if they were to disappear. The citizens of the key nation state of Valsgarde worship the Protogenoi openly..
These beings include:
Heliod, the stars own path and the Sun and the Earth circling around The One.
Thalassa, the restless wave, the rhythmic beat linking all life everywhere,
Erebos, the hungry dark, the moment of quenching, the begrudging final acceptance, of creation to purpose.
Purphoros, the “angry earth”, the heat of the creative fire, the passion that labors in artists obsessive need to create, the burst of energy, labor, artisans, obsession and passion.
Nylea, the Wanton heart, The Drawn Bow, The Eater of Fear.
Nyx, the Void. It is she who gives scope and meaning.
