    “The nature of the Universe is conflict. That is why the Dominion is perfect. The Dominion is conflict, it is war made manifest.”
    Master Deylus on the politics of the Dominion ​

    The Equestrian Grand Republic, once the ruling power of the galaxy, lies broken among the stars.

    Famed for its speed, the Republic would soon learn that rapid conquests are something to be feared not admired. Stretched thinly across the cosmos, the Grand Republic was not prepared for the arrival of the Black Dawn Dominion.

    The Black Dawn Dominion, coming from the unknown regions of space, easily destroyed the scattered fleets of the Republic. Without experiencing much resistance, the Dominion quickly conquered the Republic’s eastern sphere.

    The true deathblow to the Republic though was the fall of its capital world: Hussar. It was here that the true might of the Dominion was shown, for it was here that the Bearer of Infinity, one of the members of the Dominion’s ruling council, created a black hole and destroyed the entire planet.

    With its leadership gone and its fleets destroyed, the Republic was forced to cede its eastern territories to the Dominion, but that wasn’t what truly killed the Republic. Without its iron boot crushing the will of the conquered people, many planets declared independence and broke away from the tyrannical nation.

    Now, 357 years into the reign of the Black Dawn Dominion, turmoil engulfs in the galaxy.

    Freya Truesteel, Witch Queen of Helandia, seeks to emulate the greatness of the Republic and build an Empire that can rival the Dominion. With this delusion of a Helandic Empire strong in her mind, Queen Freya has declared war on many of the Republic’s successor states. Defeat would be certain for the Mad Queen if not for her careful alliance with the Asmelsian Empire and the Karim Theocracy.

    With war brought to their systems, Resian, Ponford, and Soc rally their armies in a loose coalition to vanquish these Tyrants. Though the grudges of the past have not been forgotten, these nations unite to maintain their sovereignty. But for how long can this new unity survive under the war’s constant blows?

    In the East of the Galaxy lies the Black Dawn Dominion: the current ruler of the Galaxy. It has declared neutrality, yet prepares its troops for war. Are the successors of the Republic prepared to fight the giant of the East?

    War has come to the galaxy The planetary lords rally their banners to fulfill their sacred duties. Men ready arms to protect those they hold dear. Sons raise banners to earn prestige and gold as cutthroats raid the now undefended outskirts.

    It is a time of warring states where anyone can carve out a place in history.

    However, the wars will not be the immediate focus of this tale.

    Beneath the gaze of all the players, a new power rises.

    A new being, one that can shape worlds, has arrived. This entity, capable of destroying entire nations and raising timeless wonders, has come to take the reigns of destiny. A new God, a new divine, has entered the stage.

    Who is this new god?

    [ ] Name:
    [ ] Appearance:

    What is the nature of this new divine?

    [ ] A mortal that ascended to the status of divinity
    [ ] A member of the 13 primordial beings
    [ ] A being born from the union of 2 gods
    [ ] A god birthed from the chaos of the aether
    [ ] An entity born from the collective worship of mortals

    And what powers does this new god possess?

    Choose 3
    [ ] Alacrity (swiftness and impossible grace)
    [ ] Fear (the certainty of horrors and the expectation of terrors)
    [ ] Peak Human (not a god but a mortal honed to a superlative edge)
    [ ] Wealth (prosperity of all kinds, great sums of gold, steady pay, full larders)
    [ ] Time (events of past and future, predict outcomes, temporal manipulation)
    [ ] Shapeshifting (physical transformations, impersonate others, molding flesh)
    [ ] Death (rule the unquiet dead, bring about death, reveal the details of death)
    [ ] Beast (rule the animal realm, call the wild hunt, bestial transformation)
    [ ] Birds (communicate with avian creatures, flight of birds, mastery of the air)
    [ ] Insects (Lord of the flies, mindless hunger, multitudinousness, resilience)
    [ ] Lich King (paragon of undead who ascended life using guile or unnatural magic)
    [ ] Might (the primal power of strength)
    [ ] Endurance (supreme hardiness, determination, and unflagging exertion)
    [ ] Health (banish plagues and cure injuries, mend mismade flesh)
    [ ] Freedom (erase compulsions, break contracts, dissolve binding relations)
    [ ] Write-In (Subject to veto)

    The divine powers wielded will be of great aid, but take care to not become dependent on them.

    What skills do they possess? (Assign these scores [16, 14, 13, 13, 10, and 8] to the following attributes in any order)

    [ ] Strength:
    [ ] Dexterity:
    [ ] Constitution:
    [ ] Wisdom:
    [ ] Intelligence:
    [ ] Charisma:

    Where is the divine currently? Where is it that their story truly begins?

    [ ] In an academy belonging to the Black Dawn Dominion.
    [ ] On a warship belonging to the Helandic Empire.
    [ ] In a bar on a planet that belongs to the Principality of Soc.
    [ ] On a farm on a primitive world that is about to be conquered by the Odwich Empire.
    [ ] Wandering throughout a city belonging to the Resian Empire.

    I'm basing my idea on one of the 2 protagonists of a RWBY/CK2 quest on SB and SV called Lords Among The Ashes.
    Ruby ended up becoming the Paragon of Death and effectively the the god queen of one of the 2 remaining city states on a primitive Remnant. https://forums.sufficientvelocity.com/threads/lords-among-the-ashes-rwby-ck2-quest.20167/

    [X] Name: Ruby Rose
    [X] Appearance:

    What is the nature of this new divine?

    [X] A mortal that ascended to the status of divinity

    And what powers does this new god possess?

    Choose 3
    [X] Alacrity (swiftness and impossible grace)
    [X] Peak Human (not a god but a mortal honed to a superlative edge)
    [X] Death (rule the unquiet dead, bring about death, reveal the details of death)

    The divine powers wielded will be of great aid, but take care to not become dependent on them.

    What skills do they possess? (Assign these scores [16, 14, 13, 13, 10, and 8] to the following attributes in any order)

    [8] Strength:
    [16] Dexterity:
