Udlun. the Doomed. Fortitude/Endurance, Stoic Heroism, Mountains. The greatest hero of the Velnan. He just wanted to live free and climb mountains. Tgav and Hisk hate him. His mother(Kaura) saw doom in his life but also the he would be the greatest of heroes. Udlun faced many challenges and was never given credit. In the end he not only united and saved the Velnan people but all of the north as well. Hisk turned the people against him with her poisoned words and he was sentenced to death. Udlun died after 5 days of Frostdreaming, method of torture that involves the condemned being stripped and hung from a jagged ice wall. Udlun founded the Library of Kyberv in Jadavac. He would never be honored in life but is considered the greatest hero of the north to this day.
These beings made the world. They do not gain power from mortal worshipers and so have very few. They are more forces of nature then gods and for the most part do not interfere, or notice, mortals.

Oceanna. Goddess of Water. Travel, Knowledge.
Nymbus. God of air. Weather, Divination, War. Nymbus is the second most worshipped of the elemental gods, the first being his brother Tarvakar god of earth. Nymbus is worshipped in Euphibia, Velt, Jadavac, Hildigran, elemental forest and many of the islands. Like all the elemental gods most of his worshipers are non human. He is worshipped by cload and storm giants, Silver and Blue Dragons and farmers everywhere. Most of his clerics and worshipers are sky elves. He is seen as the creator of weather, thats why the farmers pray. Many divinators follow him. He is the elemental War god and strikes down those who offend the elder gods. He is a bit self centered and really wants to be worshipped more then his brother. Nymbus grants more flashy powers, lightning and yes flight, then his siblings in hopes of winning more followers. He does this out of pride not need. He is not the strongest of the Elemental gods. Nymbus created the Sky Elves and is terribly afraid of Star Crested Fidgets despite being the patron of all birds. This started not to long ago when the odd bird was first found, it was assumed to be Nymbus’s creation. The gods followers denied it up and down, even commune with higher plane spells have given firm but vage “no”s. Many of the best magic bows, duh, are made by his druids and rangers.
