The Broken Hourglass: Two Tolmiran Gods
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Planewalker Games latest informational update for The Broken Hourglass, the company's still in progress RPG, offers a glimpse of two gods from the game's pantheon. The new article explains the outlook and role of Arithaan, a cold and distant sort, and Uulix, the god of almost everything that isn't nailed down.

Uulix began to starve for lack of purpose, fading from existence entirely.  Twisted and embittered by the lack of concern the other gods paid him, his resolve hardened.  He would survive.  In his desperation to stay alive, he pulled together all the small parts of the world that no one had ever thought to claim, that no one had thought worth laying claim to--dozens, hundreds of minor patronages, so many that none remain who can guess at the true scope of his domain. But still it was not enough, still he withered away. He would need to lay claim to something of greater power.

So he stepped back and gazed upon creation, all that had been wrought both by his own creators and by his brother gods, for by now the Sun and Moon had left the world, and he laughed. For he saw what no one else had seen, what no one else had looked for-- the holes, the flaws, the places between and unintended consequences of the other gods' creation. These he took and gathered to himself.  Where Thieron had rule over the land of dreams, Uulix wrought nightmares. Where Oron had domain over death and Lahan over life and birth, Uulix saw the middle ground of undeath. And where Lathuz would have domain over the stars of the night sky, Uulix drew power from the dark places between them.
