Default Re: DF Implied Cosmology

I certainly run one of those more transitional games, where town is an adventuring locale. My elder things have a variety of reactions to delvers; One Joe Squidface in particular, motivated by Curiosity -15 has been trailing around with a group... partly because at one point five of them had weirdness magnet. At the same time there is a cult of an elder death god that is summoning any damn thing that can disrupt the natural order, from demons to other elder things. Still again, the megadungeon in my game has rival factions of elder things, Dark Ones, and The People of the Pit (base on the A. Merrit story)... But then my game has pre-DF origins, and had many plagiarisms from Classic Fantasy, including initial inclusion of real-world religion, which has been largely downplayed. A recent plague that greatly diminished the population resulted in a rise in atheism; If all of the gods are real, and can heal, then why bother with any of them in particular? Perhaps because the city's bureaucracy is run by priests of Hades (Law, Earth, Death) and are kinda intrusive. They also try to regulate the goings on of out of pantheon divine entities...

SOD (Nature) isn't about Hating Civilisation, it very much in line with Druids like Getafix who is very much a member of civilisation, who goal is seeing his community is in harmony with nature. it includes land husbandry for farming, protecting from soil erosion etc.

Nah with Evil there is a Deal on table which can be Good says should a temptation resistant. But with Squid there no deal in the offering.
