Dragon Slayers Incorporated
Gods are powerful, but not all-powerful beings that dwell in the Universe. They are knowledgeable but not all-knowing, they are widely traveled bu not omnipresent. They are composed of thought and ideal and the substance of the Universe, and so are not bound by the laws of the Natural World.
Gods give power, blessings, and information according to their whims and natures. Like adventurers and other peoples of the Natural World, gods have alignments and areas of influence. It is said that it is the gods themselves that created alignments based on some sort of higher calling.
Gods can kill and be killed—but to kill a god, an adventurer would have to perform an Epic feat and be a being of the highest Epic levels.
