Innate Gods Edit

Innate gods are the livings that were born naturally in the universe, they are gods in nature but their cultivation speed is much slower than the postnate livings. They can be separated into the innate celestial gods and innate demon gods. There are two types of innate gods.

One, those who are come from the heaven and earth and are born within. They are the manifestation of the Dao of the universe and have stronger powers.

Two, those who are born within the worshippings of the livings toward certain objects. Although they are also the innate gods, the Dao manifestation innate gods have commonly known them as fake gods. Heaven is the head of all the worshipped-born innate gods. The worshipped-born innate gods can then be further divided into two types.

  • The All Gods

These are the innate gods that are born within the worshippings of livings toward a common object such as the sun, moon or heaven. As the worshippers each have their own worshippings and prayers, the All Gods would usually carry on the myriad thoughts of the many livings, making them unpredictable at times.

  • The Clan/Race Gods

They are the innate gods born within the worshippings of a clan/race. These kind of gods normally takes the perfect form of the clansmen/tribesmen and are powerful in nature. However, the limitations acting on them are also relatively stricter than the others.
