Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. This process has happened for thousands of years. The interval between Recurrences is known as the saeculum.
Ananke was present at the first cycle. The gods fought the forces of darkness and lost.
Nothing is known about the 1740s Recurrence.
The 1830s Recurrence featured the gods as famous Romantics, such as Lord Byron, Mary Shelley and Percy Shelley. It will be the subject of an upcoming special.
The 2010s Recurrence began in 2013, and will end sometime in 2016. In this Recurrence, the Pantheon were incarnated as pop stars.
