[P.014]泛费伦神系(半神力)Faerûnian Pantheon (Demipowers)

【校】白星喵


  泛费伦神系是团充满火药味的混合体,由来自无数种文化、种族与信仰的神力组成,其在地理与族群方面的势力范围仍在持续扩张。这种活跃与发展相当部分可以归因于神系中常被忽视的半神力们。(泛费伦神系的强大、中等以及弱等神力于《信仰与化身Faiths & Avatars》详述。)就整体而言,诸国度[the Realms]半神力的现状,远要比神系中的其他神力等级成员更不稳定。那一颗颗标志半神力的星宿,在诸国度里时时刻刻或上升、或下行。这个等级的大部分神祇在其擢升——或被降为——半神力后的几个世纪内,都将上升到弱等神力地位,或是在萎缩中步入消逝。因此,大部分半神力要么不知名到在诸国度里几乎没有凡人听说过他们的名讳,要么活跃到他们的追随者们对诸国度的历史发展所施加的短期影响,远超其信仰规模之相对比例。

The Faerûnian pantheon is a fractious amalgamation of powers drawn from myriad cultures,races,and beliefs whose geographic and racial spheres of influence continue to expand. Much of this vibrancy and growth is attributable to its oft-ignored demipowers. (The greater,intermediate,and lesser powers of the Faerûnian pantheon are detailed in Faiths & Avatars.) In general,the current status of demipowers in the Realms is far more fluid than the more powerful members of the pantheon. At any given time,each demipower's star is ascendant or descendant in the Realms. Most gods of this rank rise to the status of a lesser power or dwindle into death within a few centuries of becoming—or being reduced to being—a demipower. As a result,most demipowers are either so obscure that few mortals in the Realms have ever even heard their name or so active that their followers exert a short-term impact on the unfolding history of the Realms far out of proportion with the relative size of their faiths.

  虽然许多泛费伦神系的半神力,包括加葛斯[Gargauth]、桂伦·流风[Gwacron Windstrom]、卡尔苏斯[Karsus]、拉芮[Lurue]、红骑士[the Red Knight]、赛雅茉芙[Siamorphe]、乌鲁提欧[Ulutiu],主要居住在主物质位面[the Prime Material Plane],但其他半神力将他们的家园安在了外层位面[the Outer Planes],靠近神系中更强大的成员。无论如何,总的来说费伦的半神力们相较于地位更高的神力们远更依赖主物质位面,且相较于那些更强大的同类,他们更可能表现出往昔凡人的特点与特征。因此,诸国度的半神力常被吟游诗人在歌曲与传说中描绘为一个人,而非一尊他们神职的具现。虽然强大、中等和弱等神力与他们神职所定义的世界观结合得更为紧密,但半神力有着更强的随时间推移而适应环境和进化自身的能力。
While many demipowers of the Faerûnian pantheon are primarily residents of the Prime Material Plane,including Gargauth,Gwacron Windstrom,Karsus,Lurue,the Red Knight,Siamorphe,and Ulutiu,others make their homes in the Outer Planes alongside the more powerful members of the pantheon. As a group,however,the demipowers of Facrûn cling much more to the Prime Material than higher-status powers and are far more likely to exhibit characteristics and traits reminiscent of mortals than their more powerful associates. As a result,the demipowers of the Realms are frequently depicted by bards in songs and tales as individuals rather than as the embodiments of their portfolios. While greater,intermediate,and lesser powers are intimately bound to the world view defined by their portfolio,demipowers have a greater capability to adapt and evolve over time.

  泛费伦神系的半神力填补了诸国度信仰的几个重要生态位。一些半神力,譬如桂伦·流风、希阿莉亚[Shiallia]、维沙伦[Velsharoon],直接侍奉着强大和中等神力(或在服务期间成为了神性存在)。而某些半神力,例如卡拉苟斯[Garagos]、耶各[Jergal]、霍尔[Hoar]、以及萨弗拉斯[Savras],他们的时代已经远去。而其他的那些,譬如凡德[Finder]、红骑士[the Red Knight]、维尔寇[Valkur]、以及赛雅茉芙,则是在神系中崭露头角的新(或相对较新)神力。
The demipowers of the Faerûnian pantheon fill several important niches amongst the faiths of the Realms. Demipowers such as Gwaeron Windstrom,Shiallia,and Velsharoon serve  (or began their tenure as divine beings by serving) greater and intermediate powers directly. Some demipowers,such as Garagos,Jergal,Hoar,and Savras,are gods who time has passed away. Others,such as Finder,the Red Knight,Valkur,and Siamorphe are up-and-coming powers new  (or relatively new) to the pantheon.

  某些半神力,例如夏芮丝[Sharess]和霍尔,是从其他神系迁移而来的外来神,他们甚至仍有一只脚还踩在另一支神系中。而加葛斯则是一只谋取到神性地位与力量的下位面[Lower Planar]生物。有些半神力曾是凡人,包括凡德、桂伦·流风、卡尔苏斯、赛雅茉芙、乌斯伽[Uthgtir]、维尔寇、以及维沙伦,他们借由各式各样而独一无二的方法登神。
Some demipowers,such as Sharess and Hoar,are interloper gods who have migrated from other pantheons and who even yet stand with one foot partially in another pantheon. Gargauth was a Lower Planar being who sought the status and power of divinity. Many demipowers were once mortal,including Finder,Gwaeron Windstrom,Karsus,Siamorphe,Uthgtir,Valkur,and Velsharoon,and have ascended to godhood through a variety of methods,each unique.

  诸国度充斥着小众的教派和无名的教会。它们中有许多将动物的形象化用为它们的神、或他们神祇的代表形象。泛费伦神系两位现有成员——拉芮和诺班尼恩[Nohanion]——身为非人类生物神祇,但之后因他们所代表(或被认为代表)的信念而发展起来的大量人类追随者,已经与他们所庇佑的生物混合在了一起。另外两位神祇乌斯伽和乌鲁提欧服务的是氏族化的部落社会。他们允许他们子民的氏族各自的原始神性概念,被呈现为侍奉着他们二位的拜兽教的图腾而继续存在。事实上,这些拜兽教原本可能是这些氏族的地方性半神力,但现在,这些图腾只是凌驾于它们之上的守护神极其强壮的跨位面神仆;对这些图腾的崇拜,则将滋养掌控它们的半神力。
The Realms is rife with minor cults and obscure sects. Many of these appropriate their gods or the representative forms of their deities from animals. Two current members of the Faerûnian pantheon— Lurue and Nohanion—served as deities to nonhuman creatures but have since developed substantial human followings as the principles they represent (or are thought to represent) have become commingled with the creatures they protect. Two other deities,Uthgar and Ulutiu,both powers serving very clan-oriented,tribal societies,have allowed for the their people's individual clan's original concepts of the divine to continue to be expressed as beast cult totems that serve the two of them. These beast cults may,in fact,have originally been local demipowers of the clans,but now they are extremely strong extraplanar servants of their over-seeing patron deity,and what worship the totems garner feeds the demipower that controls them.

  总体来说,泛费伦的半神力是极其多样化的神祇杂烩。那些寻找将这泛费伦神系的部分统一起来的线索的人,将为它的完全不存在而沮丧失落。无论如何,在这个有争议、且时常是位居下等的群体中,费伦人经常能找到他们在更个人的层次上感到认同的神力——而实际上,他们甚至可能在这些神祇仍然在世时与其面对面相遇过。
Overall,the Faerûnian demipowers are an incredibly diverse assortment of deities. Those looking for a unifying thread to hold this contingent of the Faerûnian pantheon together will be frustrated at its total absence. However,among this contentious and ofttimes petty group the peoples of Faerûn frequently find powers with which they can identify on a more personal level—and powers that they are actually likely to meet face-to-face while yet alive.
