Several people have pointed out problems with this figure I made up doing my gopag (walking log entry), so I'm moving him here where he can twiddle his thumbs for the rest of time or untill someone wants to do his entry.

Gopagassizii
Referenced by: was refferenced by xerampelinae deicida
Search Link refferences deleated
detailsa dead God

His nature is debated amongst scholars. Claims as to what he was would very king, sorceror, god, demon or a combination of those. Those who worship Gopagassizii today are part of a psychotic cult. Mages in this cult tend to be obsessed with a super Golem spell(this would deffinately be a god like spell). Suyolak is the best known of these mages.

I think for those who think he was a demon those who worship Mari the Goddess of Dreams, the Goddess of Hopes would be the most likely to consider him a demon.

Besides those that worship him some of those that defeated him in battle would consider him a god. Their religon being "Klingon like" in that they killed their gods.

As a hitsorical figure I think he would make the most since as a sorceror king predating the battle of Kormendale.

according to myth he was angry because their weren't enough gold and gems in his temple, so he turned all of the trees on Caelereth into demons to destroy everybody. Gopags were origonally called Gopagassizii's Walking Tree Demon after this myth.

Xera, I did not ask you to move *this* thread; what all big proposal - generally - must be discussed at the relevant continental boards first. The Gopagassizii, the present proposal, is not workable. We could always wait for Smith to express his opinion but frankly I cannot think of a way to integrate this creature/demon/god/mage? into any tribe.

You can find Smith's email on his teampage, but please do not get your hopes up.

I would dissagree with you that this entry is not doable for a place that has multiple polytheistic society we don't have very many gods. Hinduism for example has thousands of gods.

However if the compendium was dominated by gods or demons we would have a major problem

I think doing this charachter would be a nightmare and it will be a long while before I mention him again, if ever, unless someone else decides to bring him up.

I'm not sure about the thousands of gos in hinduism, but i do know they are polytheistic.

But hinduism is still one religion. Nybelmar already has it's religions (i believe), which happen to be under the influence of developers such as Coren and Smith. Chances are if Coren says it won't work, it won't work.

Randomly placing gods into existing religions rarely turns out well. Now, if an entire religion was created for a group that doesn't already have a religion, then new gods could be placed there. But since we are currently trying to make what we have better, as opposed to adding more stuff without elabortaing on the current, then the adding of completely new religions would probably be frowned upon.
