SLID – The god of the seas and all the rivers and streams. He also owns all the pearls and treasures lost at sea. When Slid first unleashed his waves upon the world there was nothing but land and the sea god had to fight a war with the other gods for every mile of territory his waters spread along. Slid’s aquatic army first conquered the winds and then began eating away at large rocks that stood between the sea god’s forces and more territory he desired.
The advance of Slid’s aquatic army was checked momentarily when the other gods of Pegana sent the white cliffs of the lowlands to stop him. Slid pretended to be halted before these high cliffs but in the meantime caused rivers and springs to form behind the lines of his opponents.
As the rivers and springs sought the sea to join up with their commanding general they wore away at the cliffs and the lowlands fell, with their highest peaks reduced to mere islands in the area conquered by Slid until even those islands were drowned.
Slid now unleashed all the creatures of the sea as an army of occupation and they all made their homes in territory that had once been nothing but forests and deserts. Much more than half the world had already been conquered by the sea god at this point and Tintaggon the god of the black marble mountain attempted to stop Slid’s advance. After a lengthy clash Tintaggon stood firm against the sea god’s forces and enabled other mountain gods to rally and prevent Slid from submerging the entire world.
