266. The Polarians worshipped three gods

The Polarians worshipped three gods.

Naqttom, lady of light was usually portrayed as a three-headed deity, as Polaris Ceti orbited three suns. Haxxul,  lord of the seas, had the appearance of an animal not unlike the narwhals that once roamed Earth’s oceans. Effigies of both were present in nearly every temple on the planet, surrounded by money and milk, the appeasement offers of choice for most Polarians.

Always absent in the temple was Dormag, their god of darkness.

    Well, that one was bloody brilliant mate. From now on, I’ll admit I write crap.

  2. That was awesome! Reminded of Arthur Clarke’s “Childhood’s End” in a way.
