1600+ years of history and legend makes picking and choosing which Gods and Goddess will be what and do what is … problematic.

This is not an attempt at “solving” anything or an attempt to be authoritative in any way… it’s just how I’m going to do it for this game. For my own reasons, this is how I wanted to break things down.

Gaelic “Gods” and Death

Many if not all the really useful dieties of the Gaelic “pantheon” (be they Tuatha dé Danann or Fomoire) get killed in the stories. For various reasons, I’m going to say their “deaths” at the hands of the Irish monks that scribbled the tales were greatly exaggerated.

For our game, they took mortal forms or once had mortal forms, but, when they passed from mortality they returned to The Otherworld / Nevernever to heal and – most if not all – have or will return again. The coming of Patrick and Christianity has kept them weak, but they’re not really gone… not by a long shot. They’re old and they’re powerful.
