The Lurker In the Unknown observes from an unknown location with a gleeful look shining in Its countless eyes at the Chaos being stirred within the World. The multi-cellular creatures created from a fragment of Its very own essence caused quite the commotion at first and upset the delicate balance of nature, before they intelligently adjusted and adapted. Still, they spread far and wide wherever there may be sufficient organic matter for them which to digest; from the mountains to the seas, from abundant forests and jungles to desolate deserts.

Though still quite simple they seem to be learning quite well and The Lurker eagerly awaits when their species reaches to the point when they're able to distinguish their own individuality and take pride in their actions to further spread Chaos across land and sea. It notes that it seems that the other deities seem to underestimate the adaptability and versatility of these simple-looking creatures. Its eyes seem to smirk at the thought.

When It notices the appearance of a disease that seems to specifically target the amorphous blobs It has let loose It shows a complete lack of concern and seems even more pleased at these turn of events. This disease will surely cause Chaos among the slimes. It will enjoy seeing how these creatures born of Chaos will deal with Chaos that they themselves have not created. This is because It find it very amusing when others also turn to Chaos to advance their own agendas. And being an entity of Chaos Itself this is what It seeks. The same reasoning for when an asteroid is set on a collision path for the planet. Although Its eyes show slight disappointment when the asteroid is broken up into smaller parts. However this is still fine to the Red-Eyed Lurker. This too shall sow even more seeds of Chaos to Its pleasure.

It also has great Pride in what It has created, for they are part of Its essence and being. Albeit a relatively minuscule fragment but a fragment nonetheless. This is why It couldn't care any less about there being an Afterlife for souls. When the slimes of Chaos are slain, their essence simply returns to The Lurker in the Unknown, as all Chaos does.

Kinatar turns to Nysela with a ringing laugh, one eye observing the Lurker poking an eye out from the Void.

"No such scheme or plot, little sister - I daresay my Vaikrate are unsuited to immortal bureaucracy. Assuredly, I expect their Afterlife to take much the same form as their mortal encampments: a waystop on the path to reincarnation."

Nysela nods at the answer.

Fair enough, I suppose. I just can't much see the purpose in making life. Just not my purview I guess! I'll have my fun with all of yours instead."

She turns to Victor, entranced as he is.

"Still waiting for an answer, eldest brother."

So saying, Nysela turns towards the eye of the Lurker and smiles.

"Oh, another brother of mine?"

Appearing from everywhere and yet nowhere, the energies of the Lurker in the Unknown coalesce into a constantly shifting, shapeless object full of what can be only be described as countless red eyes of Chaos. With each eye blinking independently of the others at random intervals, the Chaos entity replies with a voice neither masculine or feminine but somehow both that can only be perceived by other higher beings without driving them insane, "Brother?" The Lurker chuckles, his eyes reflecting the emotion It feels and continues, "I am the formless that has existed long since before the creation of this reality, the Chaos of uncertainty of what is not known, that which disrupts the flow of Fate  to cloud the future, that which shall return the Universe to its true state of chance and randomness. "

Victor thinks for a moment, and says, "Unless anyone has objections, I declare the Living World, Mortale Mundus, the Mortal World."

And the grand cycle continues

Nysela enters the universe and promptly throws a rock at the nearest planet

She then, perhaps capriciously, decides that psionics do in fact exist but these powers can only be harnessed while in the presence of, or touching, a piece of Stellar Iron.

Victor provides refuge for the souls that will be in the form The Kingdom of the Dead, a currently lonely and empty place

He then stirred up disease and pestilence across the first planet, a fresh new blight on the unsuspecting world

Kinatar, acting swiftly. shatters Nysela’s asteroid into much more manageable pieces.

She then turns her attention to a particular strain of pathogen, modifying it into a weapon against the slimes and a oddity for every other creature.

Next she began shaping her personal species, Vaikrate. Starting with the typical foxcat design she first added increased size, enough to rival the spiders. Then she added intelligence with a twist of wanderlust and social behavior. She also adds thumbs and a touch more flexibility to them.

Bork spend his time focusing on the oceans. He forges a predator, on without sight but the ability to sense motion.

Azreal, acting on Victor’s request, creates two unique beings. The first, the Arbiter, judges souls and the second, the Archivist, records the knowledge of souls.

The Lurker...waits, biding It’s time.

And the gods rest again, while the universe turns


The pestilence and disease, while such things had been forming on their own, predictably ravage the first planet. The planet goes through a period of mass death. The slimes suffer for a while but being the simple things they are still adapt quickly. Notably, they become more selective of their food with carrion and detritus becoming less favored as food sources. The more mundane animals die out in droves and a trend of fastidious, almost cleanly, animals begins as the populations stabilize. Social grooming behavior is becomes more common amongst species. The spider population, however, does not react well. There’s a large population crash as a new bacteria takes to killing off their eggs.

Nysela’s asteroid, now an equal amount of meteors, mostly burns up in the atmosphere but a few pieces reach the planet’s surface. As for the mass lost on entry, due to Nysela’s specific actions, it retains its unique properties but in a form too small to perceive. There's no telling where it could end up.

The Plateskin symbiote slips its way into a myriad of species and does manage to slow the slime population growth further but does not manage to actively kill the slimes as they lack a single cohesive nucleus. Also of note, exactly one horned slime exists as well as a single “stone” slime.

The Vaikrate, having been born after the disease and pestilence, are much less affected by it. They compete against the spiders for the role of apex predators and their superior intelligence ensures their victory, another blow to the spider population.

In the seas, Bork’s Ventar gorge themselves on prey fish till their population breaks and starts a boom bust cycle. During the bust they pick up some minor cannibalistic tendencies.

Finally Victor Morte names the first planet and calls it Mortale Mundus.

The Kingdom of the Dead stands silent with two of it’s wardens.

The well of souls stirs, almost imperceptibly.

Soon after, so do the gods.

Universal Encyclopedia
Mortale Mundus:
A multitude of producer organisms: A well secured base for the food chains

Small predator and prey species: These are hexapodal creatures that feed off the producer organisms and each other. Occasionally they have the odd horn or similar growing off them, nothing consistent though. Currently recovering from the sudden onset of disease and pestilence.

Slimes: Intelligent amorphous amoeba like life forms, capable of both sexual and asexual reproduction via binary fission depending on what would be more successful in any given environment. Biologically immortal. Rather fast, but quicker in water. Omnivorous and adaptive, they’re found in virtually any environment. When other sources of food are unavailable they can become cannibalistic. They’re solitary and only reproduce when there’s sufficient space for the new member. This is determined by how many slimes the “parent(s)” have recently met and how long ago they met. Recently they’ve begun to speciate and develop more powerful adaptations for their home environments.

    Notable Subspecies:
  • Common plain slime: The most common slime, grazes on grass and insects. Advanced adaptation is photosynthesis.
  • Sea slime: An aquatic type that feeds on fish and ocean floor ditritus. Advanced adaptation is minor camouflage.
  • Volcanic slimes : The most unusual slimes, heat resistant to the extreme with a lithovoric diet. Advanced adaptation is being lithovoric and as such is restricted to its home environment.

Spiders: Large ambush and stalking predators. They pounce and immobilize their prey before wrapping it up in silk for later consumption. Population is currently waning do to a bacteria that attacks their eggs.

Vaikrate: Large hexapodal mammals described as a cross between foxes and cats. Omnivorous, intelligent, and social. Features opposable thumbs on the front most set of paws.


Unnamed mars sized planet:
Absolutely nothing.

Plane: The Kingdom of the Dead:
Rules:
1) Souls are created in the Well of Souls, and go to newly born sapient species.
2) Souls live their life, die, enter the Afterlife again, via the Well.
3) Souls ascend to the Spire of Judgement, where they are judged, and given options. If they had previously reincarnated, it is here where their old memories are restored to them.

  • Souls that saved many lives, or ended many lives, are sent to the Court of the Dead King, to be reborn as a Noble Dead
  • Souls that served a God are given the opportunity to go to their realm, if it exists.
  • Souls who do not wish to reincarnate are allowed to rest peacefully in the Necropolis.
  • Souls who don't want to reincarnate, but don't want to sleep forever, are allowed to journey to the Unending Wastes, an endless expanse of dusty plains with dead grass and the occasional desiccated tree, with sparse useful minerals underground, to do whatever.
  • Souls can reincarnate. Souls can return to the Spire of Judgement at any time to reincarnate. Once this option is chosen, there is no going back without being obliterated.

4) Souls that choose to reincarnate are then sent to the Citadel of the Sanctified, where the Archivist reviews their life, stores it in the Archives, and cleanses the soul of the memories. When the soul returns to the Afterlife, they are rejoined with their memories of past lives.
5) After this, souls travel the Path of Rebirth, two great highways curving around the Well of Souls. They are accompanied by The Shepard, who guides them to the Terminus, where they jump into the Well.
6) Souls are reincarnated into the next appropriate host, as determined by The Arbiter.

Notable occupants:
The Arbiter who judges the souls of the dead
The Archivist who records and erases the knowledge of souls.

Nysela claps excitedly as her meteors strike, the earlier wave of death from disease not nearly as entertaining. As she watches the Vaikrate continue to evolve and advance towards sapience, an idea strikes.

She formulates her next creation, a single six sided die. Into it, she focus her power once more. A pure game of chance, perfectly balanced and utterly impartial - even to the gods themselves.

Upon the landing of the six, the lucky roller is granted the most powerful strain of psionics; a chunk of purest Stellar Iron fusing into their body and granting power unimagineable...though the skill to use it may be lacking.

Upon the landing of the four or five, a fortunate life awaits the roller. Mates, hunts, business and trade once it becomes a thing...even rulership.

However, for all good there must be bad. Upon the landing of the two or three, the exact opposite occurs - bad luck follows the roller for the rest of their mortal life. Mates leave, prey flees, crops (when they develop) wither, and so on.

Woe betide the roller who lands a one. For those who land a one have their souls instantly stripped from their body, forever cut off from the Well of Souls and the cycle of reincarnation, forever to be the plaything of Nysela herself.

Furthermore, she forces a condition into the die: Only those who already possess a strong sense of self and will can have the Die appear before them, and once a person rolls, the Die disappears from the world, to re-appear 5 to 10 years later.

((OOC: 1: Soul stripped directly to Nysela. 2-3: Bad luck for the rest of your life. 4-5: Good luck for the rest of your life. 6: Stellar Iron fused into your body, Omega strain of psionics granted (not the accompanying skill though) ))

"Once the little playthings have their minds, there's going to be so much fun!"

Her Artifact created, she holds onto it for the time being. There's no use having it appear when there's nothing to realize it's use after all.

The slow development of intelligence has roused Gnos from their long slumber.

"I smell the beginnings of potential."

As their form coalesces in the pantheon, they observes the happenings in their absence.

"Life, obstacles, goals... You have most of the recipe. But where is the spark? Let's see if I remember how to do this."

With a wave of the long sleeve hiding the form of their arm monuments of stone form from the ground like clay. Stories of civilizations so long forgotten that even the libraries of Gnos barely contain any information is carved in their walls. While their face is not visible, the sense of a smile radiates from their hooded form.

"There, let their new nature do with that what it will."

Acts

Create Stone Monuments (pristine condition at this point in time; roughly the size of Stonehenge): 1 Act

Victor, reinvigorated by the cycles of life and death, begins his next task.

"10,000 bodies, formless clay, devoid of soul, waiting for their inhabitants. These shall be my Court of the Dead, those judged by the Arbiter to be worthy to sit on the councils of Life and Death."

And with that, he creates, in the bowels of his citadel in the Kingdom of Death, 10,000 shapeless masses of clay, waiting for their souls. For when a worthy mortal passes through the Well, either a great preserver or destroyer of life(such as a doctor whose discoveries saved thousands or millions of lives, or the executioner who ends them), they shall be imparted to one of his Court, and the clay shall reshape to reflect the Soul's mortal form, but skeletal and desiccated. To them, he grants immortality, and a degree of omniscience. For when any soul, living or dead, petitions Victor to restore or take away life, it shall be his Court to decide, and they shall know all the details of the mortal lives which they are to judge. For creatures with such an important task, he restricts them. They might never leave his castle in the Kingdom of the Dead, lest their soul be stripped and cast into the cycle of reincarnation, and their body become but formless clay once more.

"And now, for their tools."

He then crafts for his Court an Artifact of great power, The Ledger of Souls. This artifact has the power to restore, or take, life from any soul that exists. However, he limits it, it will only work if he himself writes their name within it, or if his Court does, with a 70% majority agreement.

"And for my final acts this Eon, I name the planet that crosses the sky, that keeps the time, I name it Advenus, the Migrant in the Skies. And upon it, I seed the basics of life. And perhaps, I shall give the Slimes a gift...a malleability of their intelligence. But I lack the power to do it for all of them...so perhaps, a third shall gain this power. We shall see how this affects their evolution."

After creating life on Advenus, Victor changes a random 1/3rd of all slimes, giving them Malleable Intelligence. Those slimes, when they devour any slime, would gain its memories, and when they split to reproduce, they would divide their memories among their offspring. Victor mused, that it would be interesting to see how this advantage plays out.

And with that, Victor returns to rest, and watch over the world. For his machinery will soon be put in motion.

"Oh yes, Kinatar, are you able to create the Shepard any time soon?"


Acts Used
Creating The Noble Dead: 2 Acts (Unique Race, Only Exist in Afterlife, Two Powers: limited omniscience and immortality, Restriction: Must hear every petition sent to Victor on matters of life and death)(If I have to invest more acts into them, I'll do it next turn)
Creating The Ledger of Souls: 2 Acts
Seeding Advenus with Basic Life: 1 Act
Acts put towards creating The Shepard: 1 Act
Giving 1/3rd of all slimes Malleable Intelligence: 1 Act
---------------------
Acts Remaining: 0


OOC: Victor is going to look for the first beings with Souls to murder another Souled being, or save their life. They'll be the first of his Court. The rest will be those the Arbiter judges to have ended or saved incredible amounts of life for the time. If the Court ever gets full, the Arbiter will determine who to replace if necessary.

Nysela rolls her eyes as Victor monologues about the naming of a celestial body of no real interest, and flits about the other Deities, poking over their metaphorical or literal shoulders to check what they're doing.

"So what are you all up to then? More toys to watch scurry around? Knicknacks to share with them when they finally start thinking?"

Azreal glances at Nysela briefly before gesturing to a small ball of light in front of him.

"I'm working on... these." Small figures can be seen moving in unison inside, around a center piece that is much larger. "You can even take a little credit, I'm taking some ideas from your actions."

Bork doesn't look at Nysela as she flits over, focusing wholly on the clay statue before him, its form still being molded by his two lower arms. For now his smithing hammers sit silently in his upper arm's grasp.

"I am working to deliver this new world its first challenge, it's first goal. For now I shall shape it to perfection."

His eyes do drift momentarily towards Advenus, the second planet. He spares a moment more to swing his left hammer down on his anvil, its strike sparking even more life on the once barren world. He turns his gaze back to the statue as he speaks again.

"For now let this second world hold a bounty, that hunters may emerge in force. As their food dwindles from this surge, only the ones capable of true strength will survive."

His attention fully on his statue again, Bork carefully works the material. Its form is ever changing, and it is unclear what the goal is. Whatever it is, it looks large.

"For now the beasts of our main world have earned my attention. They deserve a challenge."

The Heavens shudder with slight irritation of the Lurker in the Unknown when Victor's impudent orderly actions once more come to Its attention.

"Yet again you impose your supposed order upon the chaotic nature of the Universe. Even worse, you deem to presume that those created from Chaos itself shall follow this system? How brazen you are. However Chaos shall not be controlled nor contained by your machinations."

Its incalculable eyes all blink in a random wave as It exerts Its chaotic will upon the Well of Souls ensuring that nothing that came forth from the Chaos may ever be tainted with a soul from the Well and thus exist outside of the system of the Kingdom of the Dead. That which rose from the Chaos shall return to the Chaos. Of course this action would only currently affect the slimes once they gain sentience.

"Now then..."

The Lurker appears besides Nysela with a glint of mischief, excitement, and Pride in Its red eyes.

"Here is a new game of chance and randomness for you..."

The multitude of red eyes give off the impression that It is currently smiling from ear to ear if It had ears. Or a face.

"The force of Fate. You will be able to see the Fate of things within this Universe as they are currently. As well as influence them. However, you will not be able to choose how Fate is influenced. It is a game of pure chance as to what shall occur. Intrigued?"

The Lurker in the Unknown awaits an answer from the Scribe of Luck, Determination, and Secrets...

Fate has just been created and a representation of it is present on the Divine plane in a ever-changing formless glowing red object.

Nysela winks and keeps on flitting and poking over the shoulders of Kinatar and Gnos.

It's not as though It had created Fate only for the Scribe to use. Chaos and Fate have no favourites. Unperturbed by Nysela's response the Lurker in the Unknown continues to do as It always has done.

Lurkers gotta lurk.

Kinatar watches the world, a thoughtful expression on her face, as a small ball of blue light coalesces between her hands. Moments, or perhaps an small eternity, pass before she turns to Victor Morte and sends the orb drifitng towards him.

"As you asked, friend, the last of the Lords of the Dead." She claps her hands, and the light dissipates, leaving behind the Shepherd. "To us and the Vaikrate, he shall appear as the idealized Vaikrate, a herdsman tall and strong upon his haunches, bearing a crook and waterskin. To any other mortal, he shall take the appearance of a herdsman of their race. I have granted him the power to be in many places at once upon this plane, so he may guide souls individually upon their journey to rebirth."

She then summons a bit of power about herself, and reshapes a portion of the Plane Eternal into her own demense and the Afterlife for the Vaikrate.

"I defer to you in the judging of souls and recording of gained knowledge, Victor Morte, but mine who do not choose rebirth immediately shall not be sent into your Necropolis or the barren Wastes. They shall join the Caravan Aeternus and roam at my side until they tire of the Afterlife and choose rebirth. I also grant the Unending Wastes the appearance and function of the savannahs the Vaikrate inhabit, unless of course a restless soul or another God creates their own place within the Wastes."

OOC Info: The Caravan Aeternus:
A big nomadic camp that travels about the Unending Wastes, with stops every few cycles at the City of the Dead for new souls to join and old souls to go to rebirth. Takes the place of the choice between the Necropolis and wandering the Wastes for the Vaikrate, as well as any other mortal who worships Kinatar. Otherwise, souls who join the Caravan are still subject to passing through the Spire upon arrival in the Afterlife, having their memories returned or removed at the Citadel, and jumping into the Well to be reborn.

"Seriously? A triumvirate of effort, ages of time spent, all just to store your toys when they break?"

Nysela looks at Kinatar a bit incredulously.

"You're supposed to be the cool oldest sister."

"Ah, refreshing to know that I was not the only one with such thoughts of their actions. One must wonder why they fear the chaotic nature of what is unknown and uncertain so much?"


The Lurker in the Unknown appears as a hand-sized, rainbow hued, fuzzy ball suspended in the air beside Nysela as It chuckles. Or at least what could be perceived as a chuckle.

"I mean, I understand Order and structure and all that. But it's just...the little things break. They make new ones. Half of their existence seems to be the process of making new ones, when they're not eating or sleeping. But there's still so much effort gone into storing the broken ones, and half that effort was to just...give them a way back?"

Nysela turns makes a shrugging gesture at the Lurker.

"I guess it's because I'm not the type to make life so I don't have any investment in them"

Kinatar looks evenly back at Nysela, as well as the Lurker, sprawled in a welter of cushions under a canopy at the center of her newly created Demense.

"Cycles are an investment, little sister. My 'toys' live and wander, in so doing they give me power to do as pleases me."

She flickers and blurs, an instant later standing upright at eternity away from where she was.

"It is not fear of chaos or uncertainty, Lurker in Shadow. Chaos can be beautiful, joyous. But order and creation, existence - these provide context and comparison with your favored state." Another flickering blur, the Goddess standing before the Lurker and Nysela.

"Secrets and determination are powerless without intelligence to harness them. Chaos for its own sake means nothing if Chaos is all that exists."

Kinatar reaches out and leaves a blade of grass balanced atop the Lurker, as well as across Nysela's nose.

"Action in potential comes from balance, and balance from equally opposing qualities."

Now in the shape of purplish translucent gaseous form with electricity arcing over it, the Lurker counters the statements of Kinatar.

"I would like point out that Chaos was all that existed before it was decided to impose order upon it. Chaos is not merely my favoured state. It is what existed before you all decided it would be better to create order in this universe."

Its form seamlessly chances to that of what could be described as a caricature of a pale blue ghost inside of a mason jar.

"Sigh. It was much more pleasant then. Every thing undefined and in a constant flux. Eventually all shall return to such a state though. Perhaps sooner than any of us could expect..."

The disembodied mouth that is now the current form of the Lurker in the Unknown grins a very wide grin full of golden teeth before the prideful entity once more returns to an unknown location.

Bork glances away from his statue, which is rapidly taking form, at Kinatar.

There is no glory in an equally opposing force.

He returns his eyes to his work as he continues to sculpt out what appears to be a large wing.

It is in overcoming great opposition, in opposing what other's accept, that mortals shall find their true purpose, their true power.

"With a little luck and some determined grit, right Bork~?"

Nysela's eyes glint as her mood swaps back to cheerful.

"That's...something big. More life for the planet?"

Luck helps, but is understandably unreliable. Passion, grit, determination, the strength I aim to inspire carries many names.

He smiles down at his statue.

The first of my muses.
