Gods and Pantheons
The world of Zalora has few native gods. Most of the deities have had aspects of their beings migrate to this world and take up residence. With this as the case there are a large number of feuds that happen as gods vie for more power and worshipers. This level of competition is extremely vital as the power of gods on Zalora is directly related to the number and level of belief of their followers. The gods cannot die but there have been occurrences of gods having so few true followers that they can no longer even grant spells to their clerics.
Gods that lose their followers fall from power and exist in potentia until they can find some new foothold and regain enough power to once again enter the ring. The only way to truly defeat a god on Zalora is to publicly kill them with the direct aid of another deity and then continually crush any attempt by followers or cults to bring that god back into power. This makes it extremely difficult to truly eliminate divine competition and has led to vast swings in the gods who are actually effective and physically present.
