This is straight from the creation myth
"He lifted the mountains from the bossom of the earth and let their
peaks rise high to praise the sky which curved as a blue ether over the
circle of earth. The figure let the trees rise from their mould and the
grass to grow at their roots and he set the wind to blow between the
leaves of the trees. But the figure was not happy."
So at least plants existed. At this time Namahas had created servents
namely Aluna and Sinister. there where no other gods at the time. Also
they where more interested in keeping balance instead of power. But the
myth i proposed after the creation myth will have to change. i just
reread it and it would be better Yorkaturr and nature god be made by
Aluna and sinister.

If you want the new gods that arose after the old gods could make

I sure hope you don't mean this in the real world ( of course this comes
from a nialistic scientific materialist :) But yes this can be changed.

How so? Which part? In all myths i have heard the new gods usually kill
their father this sort of follows this course exept namhas and others do
not die but are just taken down a peg.
