Gosgolot Deities

Entry #1

Name: Pofoshiintus
Name meaning: Merciless Star Lord
Class: VaHK-tuma
Sub-class: Shiintu-Bahn (Star People, as in a living star; all stars are alive to the Gosgolot POV)
Represents: Pofoshiintus IS the sun of the Traipah system.
Personality: As a VaHK-tuma, is immensely old and powerful. Either does not notice mortals or does not care. Responsible for making life on Traipah, by accident. Would not be hesitant to swat Traipah out of the sky if it was in His way.
Story: Ate the corpses of some relatives, possibly His own parents or grandparents, after possibly killing them in a fight for dominance. Ate their flesh, forged their bones into the planets, moons, asteroids, and comets of the solar system as a territorial marker. Used Traipah as a toilet on his way back to the center, accidentally creating life in the process. Now stands in the center of the system howling into the void with His light and heat as another territorial marker, presumably.
Other names:
    * Naipah (old word meaning “He who must not be named”)
    * Howls of Flame
    * The Daystar/Merciless Daystar
    * The Bright Death
    * Pitiless Sky Lord
    * Water Killer/Water Eater/Water's Demise
    * Thirstmaker
    * Nyzviindah (means “Life and death”)
    * Cannibal Star
    * Merciless Glory
    * The Bright Darkness
    * Howler Into The Void
    * Screaming Death
    * Lord of the Wastes
    * Daily Reminder of Our Insignificance/The Reminder
    * Sight-taker (if you stare at him too long)
    * The Foot Which Stomps (on our every achievement)
    * Lord of Futility
    * Deadly Host (if planet is a parasite, the host is the sun, and the “food” is toxic)
    * Tyrant of No Kingdom (basically saying he's a tyrannical “king” over a kingdom he has
no awareness of.)
    * King of the Fire Realm
    * Monarch of Ashes (implying his subjects are ashes waiting to happen)
    * Azya-Zyaturu [Ahz-yah Zyah-too-roo] (Basically “Alpha Omega”)
    * Bone Lord (reference to bleached bones and to the bones he used to forge planets, etc)
    * The White-Hot Eye of Fire/The Eye
    * The All-Staring Eye (implication that He stares but does not really see; not blind, just
not paying attention)
    * The Wind That Burns All Sails
    * Orphan-Maker
    * The Passive Predator (implication is that if he ever became an active predator we should
REALLY worry then)
    * The Alpha Beyond/The Alpha Above (reference to the alphas of a Duenicallo pack; He
is beyond/above all of those mortal alphas in power,
as well as being literally above and/or beyond them)
    * The Ultimate Alpha
    * Nyahlah of the Sky (a nyahlah is a creature like a large crocodile, but it has warm blood,
feathers, and a toothed beak. Much faster, meaner, nastier, and
hungrier than any crocodile. Ahbahss is still plagued with them.)
    * Nyahlah of Fire/Nyahlah With Red and Gold Plumage
(nyahlah = nigh-ah-lah / nigh-all-uh)
    * Fiery Jaws of Death

My agoraphobia thanks you
Suddenly, I understand why Michelle prefers to have the Dreamscape in "torn sky" form... indicating no sun and most of the upper layers of the atmosphere missing... giving a "torn sky" effect. Think daylight... but without the sun and instead of blue having the night sky being present.

That is pretty much how she'd describe a sun god as well.

Also, she wants to know how you'd say, "Eat shit day orb" in that language.

Well the snarky answer would be "Step 1: Say [text]. Step 2: Spontaneously combust as the Merciless Star Lord turns his all-staring eye at you and howls fire into your very soul."

But the non-snark answer... well I don't have a lot of the Duenicallo language yet, so I'll first give you the Trai'Pahg'Nan'Nog version, since TPNN is the trade language:

"Ahdjahg da-vekii, py'ihndohn!" (Well, since TPNN currently lacks a word for "sphere," that technically means "Eat turds, circle-of-day!")

Can't find the file for the main Duenicallo language, so I can't say what it would be in that one.

It is more the implication that Naipah is a shit eater first and for most. As most of his solar system is his own shit, waste and garbage.

Which mostly implies he'd be crying for and eating his shit out of hunger.

Think a large angry firey screaming person in the middle of a pile of garbage he created himself, and his own fecel matter covering that garbage... eating anything that gets close enough for him to do so. That is more what Michelle was asking about.

What? No no, see, Pofoshiintus ate the flesh of some of his dead relatives, possibly his own parents or grandparents, possibly after killing them in a fight for dominance. Then he forged the objects of the solar system from the bones of his dead kinsmen. On his way back to his "nest" in the center of his territory, he took a crap on Traipah, inadvertently creating life.

He doesn't eat any of the stuff in the system, no. Before science found the answer, the kind of people who thought about those kinds of things had decided that stars are a bit like planimals - they absorb some kind of energy invisible to mortals like plants, and can choose to move around like animals and planimals can.

Oh, the image you painted is funny, but I'm not going to adopt it. :-)

Part of the notion indicates a humbling state that no matter how great they are... they still are just a small bit inside a huge Johnny Cash looking septic tank.

They might be awesome shit... but they are still shit none the less.

Re: My agoraphobia thanks you
Saw this post again and felt compelled to mention that in Gosgolot, no matter how big the star, there are things Out There so powerful and evil and dangerous they'd make even the Evil Daystar figuratively piss djairself in terror.
