Elder gods

Back to Deities

Gods is almost the wrong word for these beings, they are sometimes referred to as the Old Ones. They exist outside of time and space, beyond the multiverse and the Great Wheel. Very few know of the Elder gods and even fewer ever speak of them. Even of what is known it is often little more than a name or an idea.
These names are known to very few and details about the Elder gods would not be known to any character unless specifically approved by the DM or discovered in game. Sometimes a character may even know an Elder god by another name and not know they are referring to something much older and more powerful than what they believe it to be, these aliases are given in brackets beside the name.
