Of the Volot

Of the Volot.

Volot is a generic term for people who are born with, or in their life gain certain extraordinary powers. The range of these powers is tremendous: starting with increased physical strength, and ending with the abilities to shape the face of the earth, temporarily alter laws of the universe, or bend thousands of people to one’s will. In estimation, about 0.006 to 0.01 % of the world population are volot.

Volot are capable of gaining power from people worshiping or irrationally fearing them. Thus many volot are revered as gods in the lands beyond the borders of the Empire. They are usually referred to as archvolot.

A human mind is often not capable of handling the archvolot powers beyond a certain degree, therefore as a rule most, if not all, of the archvolot are insane.

All volot are considered essentially mortal. Many of them grow old and die within a regular human lifespan. However, some of the archvolot are said to have been alive for millennia. No volot has ever been proven to have come back from the dead, despite numerous rumors to the contrary.

Fascinating.

Presumably both titans and Olympians are archvolot, while demigods, nymphs and their ilk are volot.

Right?

Only they play a greater role in that Earth's political and everyday life.

Not unlike http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exalted , probably?

Nymphs, satyrs and centaurs are volotlings, or volot races. Stay tuned. :)

Also stay tuned for the alternative history of the Jews! :)
