Nithian Pantheonby James Mishler
Here is some of the stuff I have about Nithia, notably, the basics of the pantheon. Note that this is only the very basics, and actually represents only a portion of the various faiths. For example, there were several different Priesthoods dedicated to Ra/Rathanos alone, the most notorious being the Ranite Priesthood (Chaotic Evil in nature, the direct ancestor of the Magian Fire Worshippers). More details will be available as they are put into computer format...

* These nine Immortals are the Nithian Ennead, the "Great Nine" of the pantheon. They come in pairs, with one exception: Horon/Isiris, Orisis/Haterat, Ra/Pflarr, Ptahr/Thoth, and Nephiris, who is often found with Horon/Isiris or Orisis/Haterat.
Note: Not all these Immortals were found throughout the entire period of the Nithian Empire (ca. 1700 BC through 500 BC). For example, Sobk/Atzanteotl showed up only later in the era, and Ausar and Eskar were actual Pharaohs who did complete the path to Immortality...
