A Goddess from the Second Age

In the Second Age, the Erian Empire maintained a large pantheon of gods and goddesses, and Xuul was among the most powerful. She ruled over fertility and fate, and the cult of her followers grew to become extremely influential as the empire slid further into corruption and sectarianism. She was eventually slain by Ares Demagos, later St. Ares the Godslayer, in the Battle of God's Demise. The sword that delivered the killing blow was thereafter named Deicide.

  1. Cool. I think "A Sword Called Deicide" would be a great title for something. :)

  2. "Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you!"

    Awesome, awesome picture.

  3. Very cool. And I agree with Trey, it is a great title.

  4. It is a pretty catchy title, isn't it.
