The gods came from Ferris: Jersham, to be precise. The forest provided them with power, and so out of the collective will rose Forten, the god of bears. Jorgun and Tali, the god and goddess of winter and spring, found their way to this haven from other provinces. Jurn, Faya, and Nakar were all Jorgun’s children, who he brought with him from the faraway lands of his origin. They would grow up under the mighty rule of Forten, while their father came and went, dividing his time between his home and his children. Later, Norfin was brought out of the mists, after the three children had grown. He harnessed the might of the wolf packs, and took on a beastly aspect himself, like Forten. He was in many ways Forten’s younger brother, though not by blood.
These gods all agreed that they would rule over these lands strictly, and all the animals were in harmony. But two of their number were greedy. The female deity and the male deity each wanted to force the council’s hand, but neither could do anything about it; neither were strong. But they sensed something coming from the West, a wind of change. And so they journeyed over mountain, finding soon the humans who had come north. They impressed them with feats and magic, and soon gained worshippers and power enough to together level off a small cut of the mountains to allow the humans into the gods’ domain. This, however, though a great feat that gained them many worshippers, would also gain the other gods worshippers. The two gods, incensed at this betrayal brought harsh winds in from the North and West to torment the humans, that would never cease so long as the descendents of the original inhabitants survived. The original council soon cast out these two from their number, and their worshippers soon became ogres and evil fey, respectively. Their names were Jurn and Nakar, the gods of Cold and Frost.
