The deities are powerful but not omnipotent, knowledgeable but not omniscient, widely traveled but not omnipresent. However they are the most powerful known beings and are revered and worshiped by many for the boons that they sometimes grant to the faithful.

Deities are not good or evil because these are arbitrary mortal terms, however deities can be placed into general categories based on mortal conceptions of good and evil.

The deities are prevented from direct interference with Midgard by Gaia, the spirit of the earth, so they mostly work through their cults, servitors, artifacts, and exarchs.
