Delrick?

Well, Delrick's pretty good at farming as long as the rain god sends rain... and the earth godess is generous... and a whole bunch of other gods do their shit too.

Basically, Delrick is like any mortal, besides one power. He can't fly or be everywhere at once or ascend planes or shit like that. But he can't die.

And I mean, ever. Squash him under a mountain slide? He reforms on top of it three hours later. Throw him the ocean with rocks tied to his ankles? It'll take a while, but he'll walk out. Chop him up into tiny pieces? Again, he'll just reform.

In fact, it's pretty much accepted by the other gods that Delrick will be around forever, even past when they die. But, since he can't do shit when they laugh at him from other planes, he is just then god of commoners.

It is said that thunder, lighting, and volcanic activity are all signs of his great work. When the skys are clear and the ground is quite, Loui has paused from his work and has turned his eye towards the mortal world. It is then that those wishing for his blessing should ask for it.

In the days when the Gods of heaven did battle with the Goddesses who lived on earth, there was one god who was famous for his skill at battle. His name was Armour

A warrior, Armour slew more goddesses than any other god. Realizing his power, the underhanded Goddessess hatched a plan to keep him out of the war. Late one night, while out in search for more kills, Armour came across a young female mortal. Taking pity on her, he stopped and put aside his weapons to help. At that moment, the mortal faded away and it was then Armour realized he had been fooled by a illusion. Then, he was ambushed by a company of the strongest goddesses. Even without his weapons, the Goddessess could not slay Armour so instead they stole his soul from his divine body and put it in a suit of metal. Unable to escape from his current form, Armour travels the earth looking for some way out or atleast another enemy worthy enough to fight him. He's also very distrustful of mortal women, believeing them all mistful illusions

He is where we get the word Armour from as mortals were inspired by his metal form to create suits of "Armour" for themselves.

Demeter, Hera, Hades, Hestia, Poseidon and Zeus. Those were the six, and IIRC that's the order they were born in.

Zeus was the youngest of them, and his mother Rhea replaced him with a stone for Cronus to eat instead. When Zeus came back, he beat Cronus' ass so hard that he vomited up all his siblings in the opposite order to the one they'd been eaten in. Because Zeus was out "first" though, he was now the oldest of them.

So Zeus is both the first and last (Alpha and Omega, oldest and youngest) of the sons of Cronus.

Also, Romans took most of their gods and attributes of the gods from the Greeks. There's a joke that while the Romans may have beaten Greece militarily, they wound up trying hard to be Greek anyway. They even eventually wrote the Aeneid, which jumped right off Troy and implied that the Romans could trace their ancestry back to that war.

(Which, hilariously, means that the Romans are, through Greek myth, tracing their ancestry to a city that was destroyed by the Mycenaean Greeks.)

Vikings created trade stations all over what is now Russia back when there was basically nothing more than retarded steppe Slavs living there. They were trading stations following the rivers down to the Black Sea to Constantinople (with whom they had extensive contact). Over time these trading stations grew, incorporated the local people who moved into them and became proper cities. This in time grew into all the Russian pre-nations such as Novgorod, Muscovy etc. Which then became Russia. Problem?

Oh and the Normans conquered Sicily from the Italians and set up shop there, creating the most tolerant state in Europe at the time and one of the most successful Italian states of all time; becoming the Norman Knights.

And here's me, a swede saying the following:
The development of the old norse gods are very interesting. First there was Tiwaz, he split into Tyr and Wodan then Wodan split into Wodan and Donar, then they changed name to Oden and Thor, then Oden split into Oden and Loke, then Loke and Thor shoved Oden into an advisary posistion, more or less retired him. Then for some reason Tyr comes back and is almost like Thor but not really, only to get the Ragnarok myth to make sense, since Thor has to be doing something else while Tyr is doing the hand-in-fenrirs-mouth-thing. So the myth wouldn't work unless there was a separate entity that was Tyr and not Thor, therefore there is Tyr, again.
As far as gods go, old germanic and viking gods are the same.
Oh and somewhere in the middle of this, the fertility-cultists of Frey somehow merged the two religions into one pantheon and that's really all that separates viking from old germanic.

Actually Rus just means "Swede", Swedish vikings (mainly very wealthy traders with some armed men) from Roslagen (Where the Rus rule) were asked by a bunch of slavic tribes to unite and protect them, for taxation-rights. The vikings agreed, and soon enough, "Russia" was founded. Allthough today very little of viking culture remains in the area, more or less just the name. (We're talking maybe one viking in a thousand, meaning the culture was quickly subsumed)

Azura. After all, she helped me out from time to time in her manipulative, indirect way. Otherwise I'd still be in that prison cell I woke up in.
>Azura is the Daedric Prince whose sphere is dusk and dawn, the magic in-between realms of twilight. She is also known as the Queen of Dawn and Dusk, Mother of the Rose, Queen of the Night Sky, and the Anticipation of Sotha Sil. Azura is one of the few Daedra who maintains the appearance of being "good" by mortal standards, and presumably feels more concern for the well-being of her mortal subjects than other Daedric Princes, as evidenced in books such as Invocation of Azura. However, although she is never overtly deceitful, the way Azura always gets what she desires in the end, and how titanic events always follow her interventions, can be portrayed as disturbing.
