Hello everyone. I am looking to get some opinions on an endeavor I am undertaking, and this area seemed to be the best place to put my questions.
I have been working on building a fantasy world from the ground up, and I am doing my best to have this world be based in a Judeo-Christian understanding of creation. Specifically speaking, I’m trying to explore the notion of God having created a magical world. I am trying to avoid direct reference to Jewish and Christian history and theology, but I’d still really like the world to properly reflect and point towards God.
The major issue I’m tackling right now is with Angels. I have a handful of ideas about their purpose in my universe, an I wanted to know if it would be considered sacrilegious / blasphemous to have angels be direct and active actors in the world. I can’t really think of a good way to ask illustrate my question… is it okay to point back to God while creating a structure that is, in some way, fundamentally different from the structure that God has created in our world? For example, rather than being created out of God’s desire to share himself, could the angels in my game have their main purpose be to govern whatever physical realities god creates? (Note: god is lowercase there to distinguish between God, and whatever name I give my analogous deity.)
I really want this to be a good world that points to God, but I also want it to be different… any help or guidance would be appreciated.
