I created some kind of a reference sheet for the colours of each Tsolyani god according to the description given in the Man of Gold. I'm not sure about Karakan, though. His men were described to wear scarlet and gold while every other main god had just one colour. Anyway, here's what I ended up with: http://miihkali.eu/Tekumel/Gods.pdf .
Few questions about gods:
First, how do you think summoning / asking for help works? Is it that the gods simply answer to the right kind of incantation, making it more or less an automaton, though it is difficult to use it properly and can end with miserable results. Or do the gods actually reward good worshipers when they ask for help? Remembering the fact that they are not actually gods but super-advanced beings, the latter theory makes me think whether, say, Hrihayal is but a cosmic-level scientist examining human sexual behaviour. He rewards is guinea pigs when they do what she wants them to do --that is, mate-- just like humans reward and punish animals when they train them or conduct scientific research.
I've also wondered whether or not gods are single entities at all. Or perhaps each "main god" is a single entity, leader of its kind. Then the "cohorts" are actually less powerful followers of the chief "god", but humans mistake them for single entity.
Last, what are your favourite gods? I have always somehow enjoyed reading about Sarku. When I first heard about Tekumel several years ago I could not help noting this guy with an ultra-cool name. When I started to read more about Tekumel he proved to be rather interesting. A god who approves necrophilia and human sacrifice and yet is not evil (Ksarul is, I suppose). But I also see that I'm not crazy enough to really serve Lords of Change, even if I had been born in Tsolyanu. Probably I would serve Thumis, being a bookworm that I am. (Is that a real idiom?)
