Mhogul

The biggest defence the Necros posed against anything is their total immunity to divine magics. None of the gods can directly harm them. Though, despite their almost unlimited intelligence, it took Mhogul, the goddess of knowledge herself, to apply the logic of Occam’s Razor–that the simplest solution is always the best. After the Emarions managed to launch a skyship into the Blackness, it took less than five years for the plans for their prototype ship to reach the deepest depths of the Abyss where the Necros spend their unlives plotting the damnation of all that lives. In about D2250 the Necros managed to launch a massive capitol ship into space which, at the time, surpassed anything the Emarions had yet done.

Needless to say, the Emarions decided something had to be done to make sure that would never happen again. The gods could not help, and the Abyssian Warlord, as the ship was called, remained in the Blackness for many years after. Still, the living races could not allow the Necros to launch another ship of that size. For almost a year after, the Necros launched ship after ship, and each one was just barely shot out of the sky before it left the atmosphere, and every weapon used to destroy them was costly to fire and simply not adequate for that kind of warfare.

Because weapons crafted by the gods were also useless, the nine could do nothing but stand by and watch, warning the Emarions every time the Necros were about to launch. This would not last forever, though, and the gods, Emarions, and Necros alike knew it.

Finally, after a long, hard year of keeping the Necros grounded, Mhogul had an idea that quite possibly saved the galaxy; Weapons made by the gods could not harm the Necros, but weapons designed by the gods and built from materials they provided were mundane in the sense of divinity, yet powerful enough to keep the planet safe, and easily automated as well. Within days Azureus had ten turrets up and running that could knock any hostile out of the sky and required only basic maintenance. Her brilliant idea garnered a lot of respect from the other gods, in that it was just what the mortals needed, yet so utterly simple.

One Response to “Mhogul”

  1. Commentary: Not that gods really have gender, but Mhogul is more or less feminine. I consider her, Leviah, and Indra to be goddesses, and the others to be gods, though it would not really be incorrect to call all of them gods or all of them goddesses. Other than that, I don’t really have any notes for today, except that this event explains pretty much explains the plot of Arkturus’ story.
