The beings known only today as the god-kings were ancient beings of great power and knowledge that guided the races of the world into a more civilized age. Although called god-kings, it is not known whether they truly had a concept of gender. They often times appeared in multiple forms, genders, and appearances over the ages. The elves, dwarves, dragonborn, and humans of the world were chosen by the various god-kings and were given knowledge and power to build kingdoms for themselves. The god-kings sowed customs, philosophy, and religion among the people hoping to shape their societies in the directions they wanted, be they good or bad.
No one is quite sure when the last god-king left the world, but over the ages they disappeared from mortal life. There are some who say that either they or their servants still walk the earth, carrying out mysterious agendas.
Some of the names and titles that mortals gave the various god-kings are below.
