Kecc

Avatar of Schadenfreude

CE god of data, networks, hacking, pranks and cruelty.

Centres of Worship: QuadFreq bulletin board, black market relays and darknet sites.

Symbol: A golden frog

The advent of cheap and readily available communications technology changed society on every world and, for a rareified few who could afford or steal interplanetary communication bandwidth, on that scale too. There were benefits – of course – to the sciences, to the study of magic and to businesses, not to mention the ability of people to organise and make their voice heard easily, but there was also a dark side.

People were mean when they didn’t have to face the consequences of their antisocial behaviour and the more people who were communicating the more opportunity there was for scamming, confidence tricks, intimidation, hacking, spying and laughing at people’s expense.

The collective darkness that gathered in the deepest, nastiest recesses of mass communication gradually took on a spiritual nature suited to the massed minds that fed it. A cold, damp, grotesque being that most envision as some sort of squat, amphibian creature.

Mystics of Keck are most commonly Akashic or Mindbreakers.

Roffle

Avatar of Sharing

CN god of data, networks, sharing, humour and data piracy.

Centers of Worship: Public network channels, grey market relays and media centres.

Symbol: A smiling face

While Keck was bubbling up from the shadows, Roffle descended from the light. The positive side of the data networks was everywhere as well, people sharing the joy in their lives, jokes, stories and pictures. This spirit of sharing and happiness manifested in the form of Roffle, a smiling, felinoid being of laughter and good humour – but with no respect for boundaries or legality.

Where Keck is malicious, Roffle is capricious, ever-changing, giving and taking with equal measure but always, always laughing.

Mystics of Roffle tend to be Akashic or Empaths.
