List Of Crowfall Gods

Recommended Posts

So... I've been searching extensively and haven't seemed to turn up any sort of comprehensive list so I thought I'd do it.

If I've missed a post just like this I apologize.

 

Looks like Valkyn is the head honcho.

Chaos:

Any of these interest you? I personally like Kane and Yaga. I feel like "Hero" is a bit lame.

Hopefully more specifics come out soon, it'd be cool to read up on lore and whatnot if it's taken that far.

 

Oh it better be taken that far... Would be so disappointing if it wasn't.

I like the spider one, hopefully after building faction with your God you get God related skills. I'd put spiders in my enemies.

Is there a blood themed god? Being able to shout MOAR BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD is an important part of my gameplay experience.

Hahah. Hey I think I saw you on WordPress today?

Hahah. Hey I think I saw you on WordPress today?

Unless someone else is using a Wordpress address that matches your Twitter handle, I'm going to have to say it was. 

 

Now that I'm stalking you around the internet, I have to say that you have excellent taste in Wordpress themes. :P

Following is all hypothetical lore. However some of them seem to have a good connection! I tried to put "?" marks in areas where I'm making my own connections/guesses, but I may have forgot some areas. All of this was done by the power of Google (I am not a lore specialist).

ツ = pretty sure about some connections here with current mythology
 
All-Father:
    Valkyn

        Male (and bald!). "Centuries ago, The All-Father went to the center of the universe to try and stop The Hunger, and he never returned. His children [are] the elder gods..." from Crowfall - The Gods.
        Valkyrie (All-mother?) are females that choose who will live/die in combat (Norse Mythology); "Chooser of the slain" perhaps root is used for "The Chooser"?

        No connection to Dragon.

        
Order:
    Arkyn
        In Norse the meaning of the name Arkyn is: Eternal king's son. (Eternal King = Valkyn; Valkyn seems "norse" as well; Pretty straightforward xP)

        No connection to Griffon.
    Cybele
        Cybele ("Kubeleyan Mother", perhaps "Mountain Mother") was an originally Anatolian mother goddess; she has a possible precursor in the earliest neolithic at Çatalhöyük (in the Konya region) where the statue of a pregnant goddess seated on a lion throne was found in a granary. She is Phrygia's only known goddess, and was probably its state deity. Her Phrygian cult was adopted and adapted by Greek colonists of Asia Minor and spread from there to mainland Greece and its more distant western colonies from around the 6th century BCE

        No connection to Unicorn.
    Maeve
        Maeve is a first name of Irish origin. In Irish Gaelic, the name "Medbh" or "Méadhbh" means "she who intoxicates." It is rooted in the Irish legend of Queen Maeve or Medb, one of the main protagonists of the early Irish legend Táin Bó Cúailnge.

        No connection to Squid.
    Hero
        Possibly Male and "First Crow" of the Gods according to Feature (Wyvern) in which he was mortal: "His mortal name is long forgotten. All that is known of the First Crow is that he was unwavering in his devotion to the gods. By all accounts, he was pious and generous and humble".

        Definition: A hero (masculine or gender-neutral) or heroine (feminine) (Ancient Greek: ἥρως, hḗrōs) is a person or character who, in the face of danger and adversity or from a position of weakness, displays courage or self-sacrifice—that is, heroism—for some greater good. Historically, the first heroes displayed courage or excellence as warriors. The word's meaning was later extended to include moral excellence.

        The eagle with its keen eyes symbolized perspicacity, courage, strength and immortality, but is also considered "king of the skies" and messenger of the highest Gods. With these attributed qualities the eagle became a symbol of power and strength in Ancient Rome. Mythologically, it has been connected by the Greeks with the God Zeus, by the Romans withJupiter, by the Germanic tribes with Odin, by the Judeo-Christian scriptures with those who hope in God (Isa 40:31), and in Christian art with Saint John the Evangelist.

        No connection to Eagle/Falcon.
 
Balance:
    Kronos
        Chronos was confused with, or perhaps consciously identified with, due to the similarity in name, the Titan Cronus already in antiquity, the identification becoming more widespread during the Renaissance, giving rise to the allegory of "Father Time" wielding the harvesting scythe.
        In the Orphic cosmogony, the unaging Chronos produced Aether and Chaos, and made a silvery egg in the divine Aether. It produced the hermaphroditic god Phanes, who gave birth to the first generation of gods and is the ultimate creator of the cosmos.

        Direct connection to Hour Glass!
    Gaea
        In Greek mythology, Gaia, also spelled Gaea, was the personification of the Earth and one of the Greek primordial deities. Gaia was the great mother of all: the primal Greek Mother Goddess; creator and giver of birth to the Earth and all the Universe; the heavenly gods, the Titans, and the Giants were born to her. The gods reigning over their classical pantheon were born from her union with Uranus (the sky), while the sea-gods were born from her union with Pontus (the sea). Her equivalent in the Roman pantheon was Terra.

        Direct connection to Tree of Life/World Tree!
    D'Orion
        "D'" is used before a last name to indicate "From" or "Of". Orion's current name derives from Greek mythology, in which Orion was a gigantic, supernaturally strong hunter of ancient times, born to Euryale, a Gorgon, and Poseidon (Neptune), god of the sea in the Graeco-Roman tradition. One myth recounts Gaia's rage at Orion, who dared to say that he would kill every animal on the planet.
        The Rig Veda refers to the Orion Constellation as Mriga (The Deer). It is said that two bright stars in the front and two bright stars in the rear are The hunting dogs, the one comparatively less bright star in the middle and ahead of two front dogs is The hunter and three aligned bright stars are in the middle of all four hunting dogs is The Deer (The Mriga) and three little aligned but less brighter stars is The Baby Deer. The Mriga means Deer, locally known as Harnu in folk parlance. There are many folk songs narrating the Harnu. The Malay called Orion' Belt Bintang Tiga Beradik (the "Three Brother Star").

        Mriga is a direct connection to Antlers!
    Illara
        Female. Daughter of Cats according to Feature (Wyvern)The name Llara in Welsh means meek which can also be translated as humble. ("Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth." Matthew 5:5)

        In Greek mythology, the name of Illyria is aetiologically traced to Illyrius, the son of Cadmus and Harmonia, who eventually ruled Illyria and became the eponymous ancestor of the Illyrians. A later version of the myth identifies Polyphemus and Galatea as parents of Celtus, Galas and Illyrius. The second myth could stem perhaps from the similarities to Celts and Gauls.
        Origin of Ilara as a variation of Hilarius in other languages:  Ilari,  Ilario (Italian), Ilari (Russian), Ilar (Welsh). Means "happy, cheerful, joyful"

        No direct connection to Mouse/Rat/Guinecian.
 
Chaos:
    Kane
        Cain and Abel were, according to the Book of Genesis, two sons of Adam and Eve. Cain is described as a crop farmer and his younger brother Abel as a shepherd. Cain was the first human born and Abel was the first human to die. Cain committed the first murder by killing his brother. (Cain kills Abel the Shepherd. Shepherds herd sheep. Cain = Wolf, tada!)
        Boy's name meaning: Fighter (Irish), Tribute (Gaelic), Intelligent Warrior (Celtic)

        Not a bad connection to wolf!
    Malekai
        Male. "Lord of Spiders" according to Feature (Wyvern). All that comes to mind is "Malekai, Mordecai" a Jewish prophet, some hawaiian names, etc. Spiders are weavers? What will the chaos god weave in the fabric of war?
    Yaga
        In Slavic folklore, Baba Yaga is a supernatural being (or one of a trio of sisters of the same name) who appears as a deformed and/or ferocious-looking woman. Baba Yaga flies around in a mortar, wields a pestle, and dwells deep in the forest in a hut usually described as standing on chicken legs (or sometimes a single chicken leg).[1] Baba Yaga may help or hinder those that encounter or seek her out. She sometimes plays a maternal role, and also has associations with forest wildlife. According to Vladimir Propp's folktale morphology, Baba Yaga commonly appears as either a donor or villain, or may be altogether ambiguous.

        Direct connection to Tree/Chaos!
    Zalena
        The name Zelena means "green" in various Slavic languages. Zelena is also of Old Greek origin derived from the word selene meaning moon.
        Seljord is famous for its sea serpent, Selma, who allegedly lives in Lake Seljord. (The coat of arms looks similar-ish: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seljord).
        Chaos is great disorder or confusion. So Mysterious serpents existing or not kind of fits. However the connection to the name I have no idea.
        "Mysterious serpents occur not just in ancient myths but in more modern legends as well. For centuries, people have reported seeing huge snakes or snakelike monsters at sea or in lakes. Although many marine scientists admit that creatures yet unknown may inhabit the depths, no one has produced reliable evidence of an entirely new kind of sea serpent. Most likely the mysterious creatures seen swimming on the water's surface are masses of seaweed, floating logs, rows of porpoises leaping into the air, giant squid, or just common sharks or sea lions.
        Hindu myths contain many tales of serpents. Kaliya was a five-headed serpent king who poisoned water and land until the god Krishna defeated him in battle. Kaliya then worshiped Krishna, who spared his life. Kadru was a snake goddess who bore 1,000 children. Legend says that they still live today as snakes in human form. One of Kadru's children was the world snake Shesha that the gods used to turn a mountain and stir up the ocean, just as people churn milk into butter by using a rope coiled around a stick or paddle. As the gods churned the ocean with the snake, many precious things arose from it, including the moon, a magical tree, and the Amrita, or water of life."
