Gods and goddesses are a major part of and influence on the welfare of and events within the Travengar Polyverse. In order to best measure the impact and threat of different deities, the IBN uses the following classifications in descending order.
These are the greatest threat to the IBN's existence, and may well be capable of ending it on a whim and without fanfare. Absolute gods are understood to be omnipotent or near-omnipotent, which relegates their domains to symbolism rather than determinants of held power. There is no known way to defeat an absolute god, and the IBN currently claims none in its ranks. Absolute gods have only ever been recorded as appearing via avatars, as the mere presence of a true physical manifestation could impose unfathomable consequences on space and time.
Greater gods claim chief control over their domains, and possess an exceptional degree of power over many. All known greater gods are capable of reality warping with ease, with the severity of their potential more significant the nearer a warp is to their primary domains. Some Bastion scholars have theorized that all the might the IBN has to offer would total near that of a single greater god.
Middling gods demonstrate great spatial influence, but if their primary domains are held by greater gods, they do not hold total control over them. The overall power possessed by a middling god is just enough for slight reality warps with the exception of those who bear life, matter, space, or time as a primary domain.
Lesser gods are generally unable to maintain a presence larger than a small planet, and their influence is limited by their power ceiling. Lesser gods' primary domains are usually less impactful than those of superior deities, but they remain immortal and generally invulnerable to mortal technology.
Trivial gods are figures who have achieved immortality, but have very little power compared to other deities. They may have divine strength in one or two domains, with their power inversely proportional to the significance of that domain. Trivial gods were often mortals at one point.
