Edwin Nedellaf, a perfect nonentity, wakes up one morning and decides to reinvent himself because his life has become too stagnant, or he has finally been awoken to his calling.
After creating new gods, he quickly becomes the next big cult leader. His actions also birth a new religion with multiple sub-sects, and like all great (maniacal) cult leaders he envisions a new world order and insane end goal for humanity. He encounters, or helps create, many peculiar characters who are stuck in their roles and unable to stop their actions or alter course let alone his master plan.
In the end, his trip from (away) God might be a trip from (provided by) the Almighty, or perhaps there’s a far more sinister higher power helping him steer the world to its inevitable next phase.
