So for those who have read Once Walked With Gods, which Elven God would you choose to follow? Also like to know why?

And to help the debate, nobody is allowed to pick Yniss.

Spoil sport Razz

Well, if I remember correctly parts from the other books, and I may be predicting the other Elves books here, but I'd pick Ix becaause I have a funny feeling he(or she) is going to be their god of mana Smile

Also because they seem to be a lot more sensible and peaceful than the followers of Tual.

And Apposans I think were a close second, again for being sensible!

Hi I got interested in this when someone posted about how long followers live depending on which god they worship. Other than Yniss and Tual, what do they each represent?
Anywhere i can find out more info abt lifespans?
Thank you Cool

I'll give this due attention when I get a moment. There's nowhere official to get the info except my head and notes. You don't get to choose the god you are born under by the way, it's all about blood lines which is why the elves have long been a sectarian race at war with themselves

Here are four for starters:

Yniss (father of all) - the Ynissul - Immortal. Though not invulnerable to wound or disease. An Ynissul can choose to die.

Beeth (god of tree, root and branch) - Beethans - almost immortal. Can live for thousands of years.

Tual (god of forest denizens) - Tuali - very long lived, a couple of thousand years is not unusual.

Gyal (god of rain and cloud) - Gyalans - short lived, four hundred nad fifity years is about right but some can go on plenty longer.
