    I think I need a geography pick to round out my draft. I think I am going to install volcanic shafts that will cut from the surface of one side of the thread to the opposite side. Naturally it's up to the user to determine if s/he is diving into an empty chute to carry them quickly through solid matter, or a vein of burning lava and magma.

    (REALLY long, really detailed- Edit, okay, not that long or detailed but still easy to miss mention of this or that god if you aren't careful)
     

    And the other gods did craft lands and monuments and great works aplenty, they shaped the geography of this world and the next, and some asked "Where then is Fox's contribution?"
     
    Workaholics, the lot of them, which is fine, I suppose, but to get nagged by some for not 'creating' enough (As if stories were not the creation that inspired other creations) is irksome. I'm the god of trickery, not the god of marriage, find someone else to hoist your honey dew list upon.
     
    And yet, let it not be said I'm not able to rise to an occasion. Why, I'm even generous!
     
    Nation states were brought into this world, yet they seem vague and nebulous! Clearly we're not a detail oriented pantheon. And so I shall make TEN great countries on one 'continent', one for each of my fellow gods!
     
    To Nogram, I bestow the country of Nemohicarum! A lush, hilly, wooded land , and it is near the great river that rushes up. It has small villages connected by lesser rivers, and some of the lower hills are quite nice for vinyards or the like. Sadly, it has almost no metals (Unless Nogram puts it there). It must trade outside itself for such, or invade, or..well whatever. Each village has a temple to Nogram, again, lacking in metal components. save for the bare minimums. The villages are laid out in a vaguely circular pattern , if the hill in the center was further developed it might make a grand market.
     
    To Volcanis, I grant the nation of Tá an Cíos ró-ard! a ring shape of sub-tropical and tropical jungles with wildlife aplenty but with a great HUGE City in the near center of it with a fine port. Further, there are metal ores a plenty under the green of the nature beyond with some samples getting into the streams to catch the eyes of travelers.
     
    To Shayol, I leave Sucre Eclat, a land as barren as your offerings, as false as your hope. Lodged between Fluff Fluff Forest, and Cuddly Crag, this chromatic country shines garishly under an onslaught of bright often pastel daylight. Food grown here tastes saccharine to the extreme. And cheerful music seems carried on every wind. The main fauna appears to be incredibly friendly ponies of all colors of the rainbows. By pure chance, Foxhair weed seems to grow on the borders between it and other countries.
     
    To Liminus, Askakupolfordrakar is yours to use or ignore. High Mountain ranges that plunge down into marshes with sluggish swampy rivers, some green willow filled woodlands, and everywhere mists and fog so thick that your average human couldn't see ten feet past his face. A great town built in the center of a lake has canals rather than roads, it is clearer here, and whatever people you choose to settle here will find rows and rows of sable colored arrows with a few bows.
     
    To Eternus, creator of humans who are ever a source of amusement to me, I leave to you the city state of Blumenriechengut! Down in a valley are miles and miles of flowery fields and the great city of Essiehtgutausja! It is a great stone labyrinth of a city, and on its tombstone like walls are writings in many languages where the stories of those who have died and made a mark in history are displayed. Miles and miles as you walk from down town to the great temple that awaits priests of your choosing. Of course, one out of every hundred of every 'historical record'  or 'memory preserved' has an inaccuracy in it, and a few spots just have bad grammar. Irregardless of that, I'm sure your worshipers could care less, and if they want to will hunt down and spend the time correcting those.
     
    To Andrea, I leave the mysterious underkingdom of Chikajunin. We don't want you falling through the helix, so the tunnels are more wide spread than deep. Don't worry, some have that stuff laced in it that makes it unlikely to collapse. It's actually quite lovely with phosphorescent crystals and under ground pools, some heated by the heat from below. There are vapors that induce dreaming in some vents. There's a resort like town with spas and cave paintings depicting you (might be a few Fox paintings too but who doesn't love those?). If you take the passages up you'll find your country is below Eternus land. 
     
    To Inscissivus , I know your created people are nomadic, so I give them the great dry lands known as Fudalat-Sunduq which border three other nations and act  a major trade road called  The Lion's Walk. While some might call it a desert, it is a surprisingly temperate path, and there are small oasis here and there.It has variances of a sort. Golden sands that slip through your fingers are one part, rocky pebbles and gravel in another, and soil that gives away easily near the water holes. The great Tent City of alshuquq-sahla itself moves, or can be moved to wherever you or those in your nation wish. obviously it's not built for siege.
     
    To Kylvn, I give you the mountainous country of Silyyaytsa, not the tallest mountains but tall enough to be top frozen all year. Below at the foothills are numerous villages pre constructed and then beyond them, ice shelves that arch out to a cold sea.  In your quest for music, you might wish to avoid Sopranos... high notes tend to cause avalanches. The cold waters are quite rich in fish though.
     
    To Tasha, Goddess of Good. Imiplaceraubaieti is a country you have offered up to you. Filled with dark woods, misty moors and gothic towns, decaying fortresses with an overabundance of spikes upon their towers. Demonic looking statuary and high barbed arches. It rains a lot here. Guess you could say its a fixer upper. However, if you know which buildings to look for, you'll find art work of surprising beauty in this or that building, and in that art, good usually triumphs over evil.  
     
    Lastly, to the Fair Star, I offer  T'pewNeik' Olt. It has everything elves could want, fine highlands where their rich accents can burr and 'och' all they want. Grains and goods that lend well to ale and beer like they adore. Minerals enough to fill their forges as their mighty smiths go to work! You'll find each village, be it under ground grotto or perched on a higland rim, has a barber shop ready for a master trimmer to shape and braid those beards.
     
    Do with as you want with them on this great spur of land I claim nothing, yet I am sure I'll visit each land in my own time just to see what you've done with the place.
     
    Geography Pick: The Continent "Regalo" with a free country for each other god
     

     
    Obviously those that already have Geography picks now get a double dip in a 'nothing bad can come of this' kind of way, and those that didn't Still have theirs and if they want could, unless our current commish says otherwise, use their geography pick to alter/improve their country like laying something better over an old painting or just make something far far from this particular section of the helix. A god can ignore their gift if they want period, of course, and leave it on the door step of fate to face whatever happens.

    I need a mystic guardian that people will respect. I'm going to pick the water dragon as my choice of guardian. It controls the ocean, and can ride the air. It also breathes out lightning, and knows enough magic to be a threat to normal personas who want to cause trouble.

    Volcanis, God of Nature. 
    Geography. 
    Sentient Life. Lemur Legionnaires.
    Gift to Civilization: 
    Flora. 
    Interference: The Integral Tree that binds all together
    Mythic Monster or Guardian. 
    Secondary Domain. Weather
    Secondary Domain. Oceans
    Secondary Domain. Volcanism
     
    I think I am going to give my gift to civilization which is instant messaging. If you know the name of someone and say it into the wind, or throw a bottle with a message into the ocean, you can talk to that person long distance if he answers the call. I think I can do this under weather and ocean control.

    As the Integral Tree grew through the world, Vulcanis knew it would need people to defend it from villains trying to use it to reach other rings of the world. So he placed his sentient race there to help those that needed it, and push off those who wanted to cut the tree apart. He created his Lemur Legionnaires to be that force for good.

    I think I have one more secondary domain left to pick. I think I am going to pick volcanism. Sometimes pieces of the world break off and drop down on a lower ring to expand the look. Sometimes a tidal wave happens. People put this down to the world spinning and plates hitting each other at the wrong time.
     
    Otherwise it would mean the God of the land, Oceans, and Weather, and Volcanos was wiping out portions of people and monsters he didn't like
