Sages are game designers, like you. They belong to a 'race' or a group of
creatures called "the ancients" All sages are the all creations of new
gods mostly, but some might even be created by elder gods. They arent
humans or not necessarily belong to any humanoid - creature group. They
can be ancient beasts like dragons, great eagles, celestial spirits, moon
elves, or some other unique weird and long lost creatures. They might even
be last surviving members of their own species.. Also sages can have
multiple forms, like 10 different beats forms and 3 humanoid forms for

Some of the sages are younger than others, while a group of them has been
created by elder/new gods, some of them have been created by lesser and
younger gods. the age between sages can vary in thousands of years. 

But nearly all sages are still older than mankind itself, they are the
ancients after all. They are evidently immortal. And they are quite
powerful in terms of physical strenght, and other suchs things. But the
greatest power of the sages comes from eons of experience. They know
_alot_ and they interact with men more than gods do, so they are atleast
the nest best thing, sometimes even better. All sages know a great deal
about magic and other hidden arts. 

Sages often serve greater powers. Demigods are about equal to sages in
power, lesser gods are a little above them, new gods are far above sages
and elder gods arent even from this world :) not to mention their
superiors, the greater gods ...

sages might follow some gods agenda, do some tasks for him. lead mortals
to goals of the god. And every once and a while they have no greater plan
to execute and they do as they will. 

When the game begings the primary role of sages is to teach and lead.
Sages will become powerful leaders and respected tutors.

good enough?
