If the Tyrian Gods left Tyria after its creation and stuff some thousand years ago to go make more planets, how come they are still present in Tyria? Wouldn't it be hard to do that considering how far they possibly could be?

I think they left, but they left some of their power with the people. The Tyrian gods I suspect are able to influence from a distance, as Grenth does from his realm when people die, etc. We do see them return in forms of avatars every now and then, such during Wintersday, when they appear to provide you knowledge in beating Abaddon in the GoM mission.

the gods no longer have a physical presence in Tyria, residing in scenic hall of heroes, but they can affect it from afar through their avatars and other, subtler means.

They don't appear in the Gate of Madness mission, those are their avatars.

Hm?

So they don't have a direct influence at all? How does Favor of the Gods work then?

And if they don't have a direct influence at all that makes me question if they are truely gods at all. (of course, they prolly are I doubt ArenaNet would make conspiracy theories for their own gods they made. >_>;)

Prince, you need to stick to PvP =P

The Favor of the Gods is dictated by the spirits of the Hall of Heroes who have teams of mortals play against each other for their own sick and twisted satisfaction. The Favor of the Gods is a misnomer as it is actually related to the gods, but rather to spirits in the Hall of Heroes.

And yes, ANet has plenty of conspiracy theories inspired by the gods, just look around the forums.

Well I meant made by ArenaNet themselves.

My conspiracy theory is that they aren't really Gods at all, just super technologically advanced (so advanced they can create planets and have holographical representations of themself on Tyria!!) beings from another world.

Yeah.

It's so likely to happen.

euhm. weren't the gods able to travel in time&space? And isn't written in the Manuscripts that they now reside in the Mists?! O.O

Quintus Antonius

It isn't directly stated where they are, all we know is that Lord Odran was able to go deep into the Mists and find them. Whether or not he came out onto another world, travelled back in time, or met them somewhere in the Mists themselves we don't know.

Odran accessed the Rift, not the mists. The Rift is the center of all things, the most important place in the entire universe. If gods were to be found anywhere, it would be there.

Well, I thought the Rift was in the center of the Mist. So if Odran entered the Rift he most likely entered the Mist first.

Quintus Antonius

Yeah, to get to the Rift, he had to use the Mists. But that doesn't necessarily mean he explored the Mists.

The Rift is in the center of the Mist and The Mist is a pretty big place. To get there Odran would have had to travel a good portion of it, not knowing exactly where the center was or the layout. Trust me, exploration of the Mist would have played a role in his quest to enter the Rift, even if it was in a small portion.

That's a good point.

If you notice, the places the Gods lived has got a staff, in Orr: The Septer of Orr; and in The Mists: The staff of Mists.

Hamas, that is a very sage observation, and I believe, a correct one. However, the staves were given to men, which I think is more important than their actual origin, which we know was the gods.
