Here is what I have so far:
In the beginning was the One. The One, the creator brought forth the twins. The god of light and the goddess of darkness. Through them the universe was created and there was harmony.
In time though the goddess of darkness grew jealous of her brother for light dispelled darkness. She then in her jealously sought to destroy anything the light touched. The God of light to protect his creations created his 10 (avatars) To stop her. She then created a mockery of his avatars by creating her own. The heavens shook as they battled.
It was then the One intervened stopping the fighting. Wishing for unity to be restored between the siblings a forced intervention was enforced by the one. The divine beings could not directly fight each other but only by influencing the universe that was created by the three.
Now those who follow the goddess of darkness seek to destroy or pervert anything relating to the God of light.
This means that clerics are of two persuasions. Those who follow the God of light and those who follow the goddess. Clerics though are all apart of orders and each order represents a particular avatar. So one being a cleric of light also picks an order such as the order of justice.
Area of discussion 1: so any suggestions or thoughts so far for the overall mythos. One of the items is finding a possible name change for avatars, not sure if I like that name or not.I
Next is the determining of the avatars and the clerical orders.I am thinking that the religion of the God of light is on a form similar to the Roman Catholic church and it's orders but no "pope" let say. Each order has its own leaders and one overall leader. These ten leaders make up a council where decisions are made.
The orders of darkness though worshiping the same goddess do not work together in and formal way.
This is the area I need some good suggestions. So far for I have:
Orders of light
2. Valor and honor
3. Death/ separation
4. In life
Discussion Area 2: other orders that would fit and/or refinement and improvement in those listed. Also any possible cool name for each one. Also any regiments on the religious orders.
Discussion Area 3: This area is to discuss other ideas that one may have for me.
I do ask that when you comment you label it as area 1,2, or 3. This is to allow me to keep track of what is being discussed to help me keep track as I work on this.
