You know what? Screw eternal warfare...I want to team up with Toku King. Ice cream, anyone? :p
Shall we start this? I'll take more gods as they are created even after the RP starts.
EDIT: Before we start, I believe you should all read this. It is the inspiration for the inspiration of this thread.

I'll get rid of most of my abilities.
Sounds like a very interesting RPG, but a bit complicated. I wonder how it will work out, in terms of controlling the God/Godess plus all those under them?
- Running on Adrenaline and Sheer Willpower.
- Trying to Stay Sane in an Insane World.
- Why Should Time Have Wings and Not I?
- Born in Wrong Comic Book Universe
Expanding on Shadows:
Shadows ((or Umbrae)) are beings woven through the essence of pure darkness and cold(something more than mere absence of light and heat). They are most powerful in complete darkness, in which they are intangible, a mere presence of numbing cold that saps emotions (note, this doesn't cause negative feelings like despair/sorrow...it merely calms all feeling to mild indifference). They have the ability to negate heat and drain the very life force of their victims (this makes them stronger, but they do not need it for sustenance).
With the addition of light, they gain definite shape, and with the addition of heat they will start to become tangible. In physical form they are incredible fast and powerful, but their heat/life draining abilities become lessened. Starlight/moonlight and other dim light sources are sufficient to reveal their shape, but they are still amorphous and mostly immune to attack (though not completely). It takes either sunlight, torchlight, or bright magical light to make them fully tangible.
Each Shadow takes on a different shape as it becomes more corporeal. Arthropods and Geiger-esque monstrosities seem to be common, though other shapes are also possible. The creature's size directly correlates to its strength.
Also, I'd like to add a variant to the Shadows. The above are "Umbrae" the elite servants, and are relatively rare. The more common variety is the "Penumbrae". These beings are very weak and cannot negate heat or drain life. They show up in light, but are still not solid. In this form, the only way to destroy them is through heat (unless its winter or otherwise cold climate, normal room temperature is enough to dispel them.) While useless on their own, they serve as cannon fodder for the followers of Susurrus as they can effectively possess specially prepared ice bodies. One Penumbra can control a body the size of an average man, anything bigger requires multiple Shadows to operate (and since they have to cooperate, it makes things clumsy). They can also possess and control a corpse, provided that the cause of death is cold-related or from the life-drain of an Umbra.
