When I get the buffer rebuilt, we’ll start updating again. This hiatus is not permanent.
Godsend is about a failed prophecy. [SPOILER ALERT! Yeah, that’s right, I can’t get through the stupid summary without wrecking everything.] Dolan, the messiah, is murdered before the quest even begins, leaving behind his panicked and grieving best friend Jaime, and the neurotic wizard Simon as the world’s only hope. Somehow, the pair of them must keep up the ruse of a messiah returned and thriving, even as everything starts to unravel around them.
The world of Lisanor, of Godsend, is a deeply troubled one (as they tend to be). For an unknown reason, all the gods save one abandoned the world some time ago, and flitted across the cosmos to create their own worlds. Ahma, the remaining god, is fiercely possessive of his planet, and chases off Nyssen when he attempts to return.
Naturally, this is (probably) going to cause the end of the world.
But, outside mythos and prophecy, the inhabitants of the world have their own daily concerns. Religious sects squabble over interpretations, rich men squabble over land and power, poor men squabble over food, and children squabble just to squabble. Magic is rare, and chiefly possessed either by the sects, or by the few wizards they tolerate. There are no sentient races besides humans.
