History

The Bogi Lyudei is the Slavic pantheon. Like the Tuatha Dé Danann, this pantheon is a vassal of the Aesir. However, unlike its celtic counterpart, the Bogi Lyudei doesn't have a history filled with violence. As deities worshiped mainly by nomads and farmers, their roles are mainly oriented towards natural roles more than any other pantheon.

That being said, those Gods and their Godborns are not to be underestimated as they have been tempered by centuries of harsh life away from the comforts of Overworld cities and high walls. Although they do not possess entire libraries of bard songs about their heroes or fiercely won legendary battles, they do have their own share of battles, family treason and messy relationships.

As peaceful deities, they didn't find much interest for the divine geopolitics. They instead take care of their own, and guide humans towards spiritual peace. Therefore, they quickly became vassals of the Theoi at first, then to the Aesir after the fall of the Roman Empire. The Slavic pantheon has witnessed many changes during its existence and their name changed accordingly. Their current name is the latest and was settled when they became the Aesir's vassals.

The origins of the Bogi Lyudei, however, remain a mystery. The only fact everybody can take for granted is that most of the pantheon is the creation of Rod for one part and his union with Lada for the other part. Nobody ever tried to know more about the origins of this pantheon, being relatively insignificant on the geopolitical level.

But the most valuable secrets are often hidden in plain sight…
