However, caravan gods are often younger protégés that the god of that particular road or chain of roads is grooming for bigger and better things—connected and cocksure, and often willing to bite off more than they can chew. More than one Exalt has slain or driven off a caravan god only to find himself in hot water with that god’s superiors—which is exactly how the Guild likes it. Caravan gods often appear as subordinates clothed as their divine superiors, if their superiors have human seemings, or as lesser versions, if the road gods appear as objects or animals.

All road gods, regardless of their dutiful nature (or lack thereof), are equally protective of their roads. Even if they allow their own roads to fall into disrepair, they will respond to attempts to harm those own roads with deadly force. Their well-being is tied to their roads, and anything that disrupts their well-being must be stopped. Road gods are also willing to bestow favors on those who act to protect or maintain the gods’ roads, to warn the gods of threats or to build shrines to the road gods along their roads.
