I'm interested in what deities people have created for their conworld to worship. Here is a list of the God and Goddesses for my conworld.

Edžida - Goddess of the Moon and the Creator of All

Déod - Goddess of the Sun (seen as the Major Goddess by the Nomads)

Jaíra - Goddess of Water and Sea

Chésa - Goddess of Fire

Ýesari - Goddess of Wind and Air

Jáýín - Goddess of Earth and Harvest

Řënn - God of War

Agrïsa - Goddess of Wisdom and Creativeness

Étaddí - Goddess of Children

Dhägí - Goddess of Dance, Rituals and Worship

Only one god? Is your society matriarchic?

Haven't done much on Emitare religion ATM. The religion that ends up the most widely excepted in Emitaru is monotheist, with a god whose name is Eryu (which means 'truth', erü means 'true').

That religion's birth helps contribute to some social chaos at a time when Emitaru is under foreign occupation, and is one of the factors instigating the revolution that ends the foreign rule.

To answer your question, achemel, the religion has mostly goddesses because they are believed to be Edzida's daughters. The God is there because only males can go into battle, therefore the deity for war is male. Renn is seen as Edzida's mate.

Ohh, I see.

I like both of your ideas. Very Happy


Here are a few of the deities of the kyllahän, who speak Hemnälg. I'm almost done writing up a summary of their world and culture, which I'll put up upon completion.


Baakj – the mother goddess
Vånskje – collective term for the stars that are her children
Hjoetg – the male twin whose body is the greater sun Säller
Vliålj – the female twin whose body is the lesser sun Säeller, and whose soul lives in the stable moon
Smådj – Vliålj’s daughter, who lives in the greater moon and watches over Fate
Lådrangtt – the star with which Baakj made the silver egg, Kyll
Bjönkar – the hunter god; a red comet
Sybbåal – the sleeping god

Ah, well, he's sort of a part of the earth - rather like how some cultures attribute natural disasters to gods/goddesses or even natural creatures, the sleeping god sort of represents the complete lack of such things. I think he's also the patron god of wind. The kyllahän believe that the entrance to the caves in the south is actually his mouth, and people who go into the caves disappear because he accidentally eats them in his sleep.

Oooh, sounds interesting! I knew, it was worth to ask Very Happy

@all, are all of your deities "god" or are there some "bad" ones too? Or maybe they're like the Greek ones? For example, Ares wasn't too much of a nice person, as far as I know Very Happy

Kyllahän deities are sort of like the Greek and Roman ones in that they aren't perfect, and they argue sometimes, and a couple of them are downright cruel. But, even the cruel ones have their good side, otherwise the kyllahän likely wouldn't worship them. They tend to use the deities as examples of what not to do; I mean, Baakj created the stars and then pretty much formed the world through incest, and incest among the kyllahän is punishable with being severely beaten or tied down and left in the sun for a couple days.

@StrangeMagic, again, are your gods like, for instance, Grangkol, worshiped as helpers, or are they being afraid of?

I would say that they are both. They believe that there is a necessity for balance and therefore no deity is entirely bad or entriely good. However, in the case of a war, he would be worshipped as a helper, but then in everyday life, I guess he would not be as important and eminent.

Then, is it a "We worship you, when we need you, but when we don't, we worship someone else" situation?

I'm still not sure about the elven deities, but when I will be, I'll definitely post them Smile

Greetings to my fellow conworld and conlang artists,
Well, in my story, it is mainly polytheistic (especially for the new races), whereas the older ones are monotheistic. Here they are:

Amaviric Deity(ies):
- The One: Also called "The Unique";

Egyptar Deity(ies):
- Kéth (The One): The same as the Amaviric;

Elvish Deities:
- Mor: The Deity of Fire and Light. The most powerful of all Elvish Deities. He has power of light and heat and all kinds of energy releases.
- Dun: The Deity of Water. The control water to all its states, from solid to gas, as well as any kind of water shape (i.e.: rain, blizzards, snow, etc.).
- Quen: The Deity of Earth and Metal. He also controls volcanoes, vegetations, and fauna.
- Ban: The Deity of Wind and Thunder. She controls storms and all their variances.
Note: These deities, in truth, have no sex, for in reality, they are but factors of nature, which the Elves, Dwarves, and Draconians view as Gods.

Dwarvish Deities:
- Same as the Elves, but they differ in names only, though most Dwarves prefer to refer them by the Elvish names instead of their own;

Mannish Deities:
- The 13 Eydolaeons: (Names to come sooner than you think)...;

Draconian Deities:
- The same as the Elves, but they view them as Dragons rather than Humanoid-shaped, as do the Elves and Dwarves (and they also have different names)...
