Hecate (Dark Goddess of Sorcery): Pantheon: Greek Role: Mage (Ranged, Magical) Basic Attacks: She shoots fireballs from her 2 torches one at a time Pros: High Crowd Control, Medium Area Damage
Lore: Hecate, goddess of the crossroads. Hecate was an only child, the daughter of Perses and Asteria, a star-goddess. Zues the son of Cronos. honored Hecate above all. He gave her splendid gifts, to have a share of the earth and the unfruitful sea, she also received honor in starry heaven, and is honored exceedingly by the gods.
For to this day, whenever mortals offer rich sacrifices and prays for favor according to custom, Zeus calls upon Hecate. Great honor comes full easily said mortal whose prayers the goddess receives favorably, and she bestows wealth upon him; for the power surely is with her. For as many as were born of Earth and Ocean amongst all these she has her due portion. Zeus did her no wrong nor took anything away of all that was her portion among the former Titaness: but she holds, as the division was at the first from the beginning, privilege both in earth, and in heaven, and in sea. Legends say she held sway over many things: Whom she will she greatly aids and advances. She sits by worshipful kings in judgement, she speaks to Poseidon for fishermen whom have prayed. And when men arm themselves for battle, then the goddess is at hand to give victory and grant glory readily to whom she will. And Zeus made her a nurse of the young.
In Athens, Hecate, along with Zeus, Hermes, Hestia, and Apollo, were very important in daily life as they were the main deities of the household. Because she was the only Titan who aided Zeus in the battle of gods and Titans, she was not banished into the underworld realms after their defeat by the Olympians. Hecate also came to be associated with ghosts, infernal spirits, the dead and sorcery. Shrines to Hecate were placed at doorways to both homes and cities with the belief that it would protect from restless dead and other spirits. Likewise, shrines to Hecate at three way crossroads were created where food offerings were left at the new moon to protect those who did so from spirits and other evils.
Many called Hecate "tender-hearted", a euphemism perhaps intended to emphasize her concern with the disappearance of Persephone, when she assisted Demeter with her search for Persephone following her abduction by Hades, suggesting that Demeter should speak to the god of the sun, Helios. Subsequently she became Persephone's companion on her yearly journey to and from the realms of Hades; serving as a psychopomp. Because of this association.

I'm new to God Concept's and creating a cool and great kit so I apologize in advance for my beginners God kit. Unless you think this is a good kit then I thank you! :)
I'm also working on creating God Concepts for other gods, mainly Egyptian Gods like Set and Nut for now.
The names for some of these abilities are working titles and will be switched soon!
I called my Dad, and I’m going to go over to his house tonight. Per y’all’s excellent suggestions, I’m going to look for my mom’s old address book and look through her cell phone. I’ll check for anything else in my mom’s stuff that seems interesting.
I’ve been combing the internet and libraries for hints on where these “Gods that Walk Between” might be hiding in history. I couldn’t find anything on Google specifically about Gods that walk between. But I did find something interesting on Wikipedia
“The Egyptians distinguished nṯrw
, "gods", from rmṯ
, "people", but the meanings of the Egyptian and the English terms do not match perfectly. The term nṯr
may have applied to any being that was in some way outside the sphere of everyday life. Deceased humans were called nṯr
because they were considered to be like the gods, whereas the term was rarely applied to many of Egypt's lesser supernatural beings, which modern scholars often call "demons". Egyptian religious art also depicts places, objects, and concepts in human form. These personified ideas range from deities that were important in myth and ritual to obscure beings, only mentioned once or twice, that may be little more than metaphors.
Confronting these blurred distinctions between gods and other beings, scholars have proposed various definitions of a "deity". One widely accepted definition, suggested by Jan Assmann, says that a deity has a cult
), is involved in some aspect of the universe, and is described in mythology or other forms of written tradition. According to a different definition, by Dimitri Meeks, nṯr
applied to any being that was the focus of ritual. From this perspective, "gods" included the king, who was called a god after his coronation rites, and deceased souls, who entered the divine realm through funeral ceremonies. Likewise, the preeminence of the great gods was maintained by the ritual devotion that was performed for them across Egypt.”
Maybe the ntrw
include everything and the ntr
who aren’t worshipped are the ones between? There’s also something about liminal deities. Wikipedia defines them as sort of threshold gods, gods of messages and crossroads: Hecate, Hermes, Janus, Ganesh, etc. They have rituals and cults which seems wrong, but when I read about them, I almost remembered something: something my mom used to do with doorways. I can’t remember. It’s almost right there. Sometimes I think I should have posted this in tipofmytongue
instead. Something about the deceased souls rings a bell too. I mean there’s Chinese ancestor worship and stuff. Is that the difference between types of ghosts, the worship? Ghosts are the very definition of liminal.
Sorry this is pretty short. I’ve stared at a screen all day. My head feels really heavy and my right eye is grainy and keeps watering. My allergies can really act up, but it’s a little weird to only have it happen in one eye. I’d have thought I wouldn’t have any liquid left in my eyes after these last months. Maybe I should listen to y’all’s warnings. I’ve seen plenty of horror movies, Turn back, don’t go in there, just leave the cursed artifact in the temple. But what if it’s already too late? Then I’m just the idiot who dies in the third scene. Part 3
