For those of you who might have some knowledge about Javanese gods, might ask about why I did not include the important gods (Sang Hyang Tunggal, Sang Hyang Wenang, Sang Hyang Widhi, Batara Guru, Batari Uma, and of course THE Batara Siwa).
The reason is quite simple. There are still some people who still believe in these gods, those people are known as Kejawen People. I've decided not to include the important gods simply to avoid offending them, since those gods are the most important gods in the Kejawen Pantheon.
I've taken enough risk as it is by including Batara Brahma, Batara Wisnu, and Batari Durga, but I just thought that it would be strange to make an RP based on Javanese gods but not including those three. It'll be like talking about Greek gods and not mentioning anything about Hermes, Apollo, and Hera. LOL
On another topic, please note that these gods ARE NOT
Hindu gods. Yes, they were assimilated into the Javanese culture, and yes, they still share similar names and myths, but after hundreds of years of development, these gods are now quite different from their Hindu origins. It's like talking about Greek gods and Roman gods. Yes, they're very similar to each other, but then again they are two different sets of gods altogether, right?
Lastly, I do not intend to offend anybody by making this Role Play Wiki. I just love these gods because their stories formed most of my childhood. And now I'm just trying to promote their stories for other people to enjoy.
