The trouble with being a god is that you've got no one to pray to.
|— Terry Pratchett, Small Gods|
God (Great one, Lord, Almighty, etc.) — abstract knowledge of Godville's universe,a being that can create Heroes. It's well-known that Godville is polytheistic, but a hero usually believes in only one of them; and that is good. By definition, a god is the only smart one in Godville, well, in theory, but he is also the only one that creates, grows, guides, revives, sends to arena and generally helps their favourite child along. Gods compete in the pantheons of gratitude and unity. The thing is, in this game you are the god and it's you who has to care for your hero or he will surely get nowhere in life.
