Soon after attaining godhood, the nine greater gods got to work clearing out the infestation of Tanar'ri on the planet. With peace settling across the land, and all the tanar'ri banished, the gods all found new homes on the outer plane that suited them best. Only Mikon stayed on the Prime Material Plane. The Supreme charged him with the responsibility of keeping the other gods where they belonged, unless they were needed on the Prime Material Plane to restore balance.

This gave the gods a lot of time to think about creating races for themselves. Each god wanted to be the patron to its own race of beings that would spread about the planet as an extension of their own selves. The gods of good wanted to establish a unified world of peace where all the different races would work together in their goals. This sentiment was not shared by the evil gods, however. These gods each wanted their race to be dominant and enslave the other races, be it blatantly or in concept only. The six gods were squabbling over this point when the neutral gods stepped in and stated that every race should have the free will to establish what it wants. Mikon went on to suggest that they, being very new to godhood, should consult with some more experienced deities in order to find out how they dealt with this problem. Thinking this to be a sensible idea, each of the gods sought to find an older god that had similar ideals. Some of these greater gods, despite being worshipped mainly on other worlds, continue to have small followings in Avlis.
