The Armaments of Garnoth: Resurgence
In the beginning, the First created each of his Children as lesser Gods to help him forge Etrium. He gave to each of them lands and children to call their own. After the forging of Etrium was complete, he saw the war that his Children caused with each other and sought to tame them. He created the Colossi to ravage their lands. He then stripped each of his children of their corporeal forms and sealed them within the mountains they had called home. Thus dawned the Restless Peace in the second age. During this time, the races intermingled and can now be found everywhere throughout Etrium, regardless of their God of origin.
Regardless of the race or class you choose to be, you will draw your origin from one of these Gods and the lands they inhabit. As a Godspoken, you will be given certain bonuses unique to your homeland, along with a special weapon or piece of armor that identifies you as one of the Godspoken.
Each God’s description includes information to help you understand the world that your character is a part of and the bonuses that they will earn as being a part of those people. Though the bonuses are conferred through the weapons regardless, you may choose to either adhere or ignore the ways and beliefs of the people you come from.
The Godspoken are the will of the Gods. After they had their corporeal forms stripped of them, each of the Gods chose to speak to only few of their people. In the Uprising of the fourth age, the Godspoken were the ones to destroy Garnoth in his home of Aeris Faber. Each Godspoken was given the weapon of their God and the power that came with it. They are considered the arbiters of Etrium in some regard, though the role of the Godspoken is truly up to the individual and the destiny they chose for themselves.
The Godspoken are blessed with a long life of one hundred years. They only age until their prime, and should they fall in battle could rise once more after a time, but at great price. At the end of their one hundred years, they passed into the Mori, leaving behind only the legends they chose to forge for themselves and the weapons that marked them for who they were.
Though the gift of long life is always present, the bonuses of the Godspoken are only conferred while the Godspoken wears or has the weapon of the Godspoken on their person. This means that any piece of armor that confers the bonus must be worn in order to confer the bonus. This also applies to any weapons of the Godspoken. These bonuses cannot be utilized by anyone other than a Godspoken.
