So the Gods are dead, or at least that is the belief.

From my understanding the world's inhabitants will be worshiping the demi-gods, angels, devils, etc.  Here is what I came up with.

Mordra the Angel of Life and Death
Worshipers have a dualistic and enigmatic view of the world that is filled with combined opposites.  It is they that believe that their souls are composed of both flame and shadow.

The players don’t really care, as long as the roll is honest. Who cares if I hit with the flat of my shield, with the edge of my shield, or whatever? The story’s the thing!" -M. A. R. Barker

Ahuitzil - She of the Ebon Blade, and Hunakbu - He of the Devouring Eyes.

Both of these cohorts of the gods are heavily worshiped in Namzabu in place of their old pantheon of gods.

An Nimhe Domhanda
Meaning: The World Serpent.
Aliases: The World Serpent, The Great Serpent, The Serpent.
Description: While not technically a god, An Nimhe Domhanda is whorshipped in the world. It is the raw forces of nature, and is generally viewed as more of a wild beast than a sentient god. Appeasement of An Nimhe Domhanda is ment to direct its focus at specific locations in an effort to affect the world. A ritual can be made to attract rain to help grow crops, but the rain can easily turn into a flood which destroys the vegetation. As such, An Nimhe Domhanda is a fickle and unpredictible focus of whorship.
Followers: An Nimhe Domhanda is whorshipped throughout the world. Most often, its followers belong to tribal cultures or those who live closely with nature. It is also whorshiped by merchants and traders, since followers tend to believe that all things have their price and all debts must be payed. Followers tend to believe in balance. Ideas like Karma are common place, based in the belief that An Nimhe Domhanda always drives the universe to a state of equilibrium. The duality of morality is rarely acknowledged by its followers, with the greatest responsibility being percieved as survival. Followers tend to view creation magic and resurection as sacriligous, with these sorceries being in defience to An Nimhe Domhanda's divine cosmic balance. Elemental and nature based magics are viewed as tools, to help harness the natural forces of the Serpent.

This is a great website I found with photographs of Holy Men from India and Africa. It's inspiration for cultists, priests, shamans, etc.

Well,  when I was thinking of An Nimhe Domhanda I was thinking primarily of Druids (the name is Gaelic and derived from a druidic cosmological concept of the same name) and Zen Buddists (being followers from more civilized locations). I'm also getting the feeling that An Nimhe Domhanda's followers will be trying to kill Zuriel's followers (since Zuriel represent the three things that are in opposition to An Nimhe).

The broad category of jungle demons called The Gha'inea are appeased by the Tin'dynu people which roughly translates to The Thousand and One Eyes of Chaos.
