Gods of Psychon - Deus Ex Machina

Most of these in the Psychon book but some newbs and promoted Typhon up.
Will follow this with a AI and god generator system later

A few more and i could make a single d100 - possibly some philosophies like god killing atheists

These gods have own bunkers and satellites and active cults. They are major agents of change and struggle and often serve the great gods. They are impossible to completely wipe out with many back up systems ready.

These gods have a single bunker or satellite and can be temporarily destroyed. It takes  some time and cult support to return from back up, especially if mightier gods dont want them to reboot. Their plots are mostly localized to a hex.

d12 Space Gods

2 Mazzigor the warrior who comes across the stars to fight evil kaiju and bad mecha

Space gods are based in space and are not embodied in Psychon. The may manifest mecha kaiju or great sky chariots and land. Local gods might try to drive them away and the ruined bodies of past landings can be found. Some build monuments of stone or scratch huge insignia in the ground to encourage space gods to land. They are more likely to leave enigmatic artifacts or send servitor aliens.

d12 Elder Gods

2 Tsathogua the subterranean lord, the great shaggy frog god, lord of wizards

These supposed alien gods persecute humanity and aid monsters and cults

10 Venus - the wife of mars and sub AI to the planetary AI of Venus, godess of love and life
11 Thanatos - the destroyer always trying to kill all on mars
12 Eros - god of love who battles his brother constantly and help life be fecund

Gods of mars are mostly not nice and not welcome on Psychon. Even the space gods dont like martian gods. Martian gods try to hack systems of other gods and introduce martial life on Psychon. Gods are jealous and don't want more gods fighting for influence or godnet system control. Mars and Psychon gods send agents to visit each other.
