Ten Ton Hammer: With so much uproar and devastation, has that shaken people’s belief in the gods at all? Are they still going to play an important role in the future?
Jeff Grubb: Yes and no. At the end of Nightfall - after Abaddon was defeated and Kormir became the new Goddess of Truth - the gods pulled back. They basically said, “Humanity, we’ve been mucking with you, we’ve been too hands-on, we’re going to step back and this world is yours to do with and succeed or fail as you can.” So the gods are somewhat like parents and humanity has been riding a two-wheeler for the first time. They’ve been running along behind and they’ve just released the seat and the kid is going back and forth across the highway, and the parent wants to grab the seat again, but the kid has to learn for itself.
