So in my campaign I have a floating nation of technologically advanced gods known as Shinkokku.
This civilization rules over a continent of humans below called Shinto.
These gods (called the Demigods in campaign) also have intermediaries called The Casted who are between god and human. Commanding power over the elements, animals, holy energy or fate itself, they are the main line of defense against the constant Ghoma menace with each Casted holding more authority than a King.
I decided to expand upon this a bit more however as their chain of command wasn't really explored, beyond their leader know as the Red Queen, and thought a series of human nations with various religions and cultures made a lot of sense to work as sort of a backdrop for the demigods power structure within the mortal lands. Though these mortals all worship the gods above, they also would have demigods on the surface they either fear or love who their cultures have a strong connection too.
These Demigods are called the Prefects. They rule as the military leaders of the Casted forces upon the surface and also as the heads of various religious institutions and ultimately as God kings, unconcerned with the daily affairs of men, leaving such things to mortal royalty, and more concerned with the ultimate long term governance of a particular chunk of land, and with combating and defeating the ever present ghoma threat.
As such I've made a lot of new demigods. They're just concepts right now, but I'll add what I have and I still need to make about 10 more but I'll start with this. Let me know what you think and I'll start making stats. Thanks!
(Side note I got the idea for this off of an interesting series of AI art I saw where someone had made various nations in the world into supervillains, I liked it so much it inspired this. )
