Chernobog Lore

Sunlight's last grasp reached up from the horizon like the clawing hand of a drowning man. Black against a blackening sky, the Great Mountain's frozen peak loomed.

In the crannies and crevices, in the darkened recesses of stone and ice, the denizens of nightmare crawled and squirmed. Silken shadows given form, withered hags of sorcerous witchcraft, leathery gargoyles, and skeletal fiends - all creeping ever upward, gathering for their unholy sabbath.

Night at last swallowed light. Crystalline silence befell the summit. The wicked waited for their God. The pointed peak cracked and opened, two colossal bat-like wings spreading. He emerged, exultant.

Creatures of every horror danced and cheered in twitches and fits, calling to their God. His jagged finger pointed and his minions of malice spewed forth to spread fear and death and darkness.

Chernobog, Lord of Darkness, grinned.

Can I just say that that is some bizarre lore? It's like it's not even based on mythology anymore; it doesn't mention any other gods or deities. It's just, "it got really dark, then zombies crawled out of the dirt, and now their leader is here". Doesn't this guy have a brother? A mother? A friend? A nemesis? I didn't know anything about this "Slavic" pantheon, and I feel like I still don't.

Unfortunately, almost nothing is known of a Slavic pantheon. All information has been completely viped out during arrival of Christianity. As well as in all religions - pantheons were broken a set territorially , there were local gods, but there is no information left on these cults. Only mentions of rituals or names, not always exact. The Chernobog is obviously entered in connection with popularity in "American gods", but no "authentic" information on this pantheon can be, it will be anyway thought up or completed by developers. Personally I hope and I expect introduction Triglav and Mara.

The lore behind him is that he is accursed he does have a counterpart but not a brother called Belobog who is the white god which is the counterpoint to the accursed chernobog

There is not much lore because not much is known about him. It was an interesting choice to have him be the first Slavic god. He is not overly important within their mythology.

Although not being overly important, he's arguably one of the most well-known Slavic gods, therefore making him a logical choice.

He does have a rather strange kit for a hunter.

He is a hunter but is not an ADC. Just like Ao Kuang or Sol that are mages but not in a true Mid.

Agreed, when I first saw this I thought he was an assassin

This god's 1 Crystallized Curses and 2 Vicious Barrage need to be re-worked. Or, at the very least his 1 needs to tie in with his 3 Into Darkness to give it a bonus effect - the central crystal needs something to make it better. His ultimate is strange for a hunter, transporting himself to melee range of enemies.

At least he is slightly less boring than Nike...

I were expecting more of this God. I didn't like him. His kit, his model (that looks like an Ah Muzen Cab skin), everything on him is disappointing.

He is, but I added him as a Roman god for now since I can't add new pantheons myself, will get that fixed later today :)
