I personally disagree with both of these positions, but in a nitpicky way.

First, I don't think that there is any more basic Death that Humakt might "depend from". He would "partake of" such an hypothetic entity rather, if it existed. Remember : Humakt IS Death. Despite the opinion of various animists and sorcerors. If you like, "Humakt" is the name (and magic package) that (some) theists give to Death.

Second, I don't believe that some sort of "supra-cosmic" higher Death entity wouldn't be capable of manifesting as a god. Which sort of ties in with my first nitpick.


I could run with this a little further, but that would be HPG-fodder, so ... - -..
