Seven-Handed Sek[ edit ] Possibly a parody of Set. The eleventh month of the Discworld calendar, Sektober, was probably named after him.

Topical Sections in Outrage Management

A minor deity mentioned in several novels, including The Last Hero. Tayloria[ edit ] The Ephebian Goddess of "negotiable affection," worshipped by ladies of the night.

The sandman

Mentioned in Small Gods. This could also be a reference to the word "tailor" seeing as all Discworld ladies of negotiable affection refer to themselves as "Seamstresses". She appears in The Last Hero. Vometia[ edit ] The ancient Ankh-Morporkian The sandman of being sick. Mentioned in The Last The sandman as having faded away from lack of worshipers.

Few people believe in him or worship him any more, so, in an attempt to keep belief in astrology going, he personally writes the horoscopes for the Almanak every year.

The God of Slight Breezes. Reality in the Ramtops is an even more negotiable proposition than for the rest of the Disc. It is not surprising therefore, that gods can also be found there. Herne appears as a small figure with floppy rabbit ears, small horns and a good turn of speed. He has the unfortunate job of being the constantly terrified and apprehensive god of all small furry creatures whose destiny it is to end their lives as a brief, crunchy squeak; it has been said that he arose from the feelings of prey animals during the hunt, whereas other gods of the hunt arose from the passions of the hunters.

He is a parody of Herne the Hunter and is mentioned in Wyrd Sisters and appears in Lords and Ladieswhere he shows that he may sometimes serve as champion and protector of hunted animals, when The sandman defended a nest of newborn rabbits by distracting the elves torturing them.

Hoki the Jokester[ edit ] A nature god usually found haunting the deep woods of the Ramtops, in which he manifests himself as an oak tree or a flute-playing half-man, half-goat figure.

Thought of by many gods and people alike as a bloody nuisance and a bad practical joker, he was eventually banished from Dunmanifestin for pulling the old exploding mistletoe joke on Blind Io. His name may also be a pun on " hokey ". Gods of Skund Forest[ edit ] The barely inhabited Forest of Skund is also home to a surprisingly large number of gods, probably due to its high level of residual magic.

Why this should be is unclear, though since at least according to Count Casanunda it is also home to a certain Queen Agantia, there might be more to it than initially apparent. Moon Goddess[ edit ] This Druidic Goddess fancies drinking mead from a silver bowl in the company of young virgins, among other things.

The Druids of Skund Forest celebrate the Rebirth of the Moon a ceremony dating back thousands of years by sacrificing a young virgin to the Moon Goddess. The virgin, dressed in a ceremonial white robe and golden torc, is led by a procession of trumpets and percussion instruments to a large and flat stone altar, situated in the centre of a circle of standing stones, where she is summarily sacrificed, using a knife.

Mentioned in The Light Fantasticwhen Rincewind, Twoflower, and Genghiz Cohen the Barbarian save the sacrificial virgin, who then complains of "eight years of staying home Saturday nights down the drain". She may be the same as the Mother Goddess who, according to Pyramidsis worshipped by some believers in her aspect as the Moon and by others in her aspect as a big fat woman.

Local tribesmen believe you must first see Skelde before you can become a shaman. Mentioned in The Light Fantastic. The name may be derived from Cotopaxia potentially active stratovolcano in the Andes Mountainswhich is familiar to English-speakers from the poem "Romance" by Walter J.

Turner ; it contains the repeated line "Chimborazo, Cotopaxi". Local tribesmen believe you must first see Umcherrel before you can become a Spirit Master. Absent gods[ edit ] These gods are still widely believed in, but no longer openly manifest or play an obvious role in mortal affairs.

Om[ edit ] The Great God Om is an omnipotentomnipresent only within the boundaries of the Omnian church god in the country of Omnia. His temple is situated in Kom, presumably the capital, and his followers are known as Omnians.

Unlike the major gods, who exist within a pantheon, Om is a monotheistic deity whose followers insist that he is the one and only true god. Despite all evidence to the contrary, Omnians also insisted, up until a hundred years ago, that the world is a sphere.

Omnianism is the most oft-mentioned religion in the Discworld series. The desert country of Omnia is a theocracy on the Klatchian continent, ruled by the Cenobiarch.

At the time of Small Gods a hundred years previous to the time explored by other Discworld novels according to Thief of Timethe Cenobiarch was a very old man, and the country was actually ruled by his advisors, chiefly Vorbis.

A major factor in Omnian affairs at this time was that very few people actually believed in Om himself, only in the clerical hierarchy and in the superficial trappings of religion. Because of this lack of belief — the "food" of the Discworld gods — Om had virtually no power for most of Small Gods and was trapped in the form of a tortoise.ashio-midori.com: Welcome to the Official Site for DC.

The Discworld gods are the fictional deities from Terry Pratchett's Discworld series of fantasy novels. The Discworld, being a flat disc supported on the backs of four elephants on top of a giant flying turtle, exists in a region of the universe where reality is somewhat less consistent than it appears in our own, more mundane corner of existence..

Because reality on the Disc is so fragile and.
