The Old Gods are ancient, powerful entities that serve Ao as creator beings. Each god is distinctly tied to a specific race, as the Old Gods are the only beings powerful enough to create creatures of Intelligence.
History in Gilkhavor
The Old Gods were brought into the fold by Ao at the request of the El’im, hoping to fill Gilkhavor with creatures suitable for service to the gods. The Old Gods, being a neutral and impassive sort, demanded that each of them be allowed to create, even those who had a reputation for less savory creations. The El’im agreed and so the Races of Gilkhavor were created.
