My pantheon has gods from different races together and they're either genuine gods or beings from a race who got so lucky/powerful that they were able to ascend to godhood.
Mine: once upon a time, the (human) trickster god Addagera stole some of the aphrodisiac elixir brewed by the (elven) love god Merische, he used it on the (dwarven) blacksmith god Tharomog's favourite keg.
Now Tharomog was a recluse and the aphrodisiac elixir got him so heated up that he ended up making love to a rock. It is believed that said love-making resulted in the birth of the seven divine metals.
To hide what happened from the other gods, Tharomog spread the divine metals across the earth and oceans, breaking it up in small pieces.
Later when one the divine metals was found by an elven king, that king requested of his gods that they cast it into a crown for him. In turn, he would spread the wisdom of the elves across the continents, so that none would ever violate nature again.
The elven gods were intrigued and accepted the elven king's request. However, they found themselves unable to shape the divine metal and thus they sought out Tharomog. To further persuade Tharomog, the elven gods decided that the incredibly beauty Merische should be the one to visit Tharomog with their request, as no man could ever hope to deny her requests.
What the elven gods didn't know however, was that Tharomog had long since created an artifact that could dispel Merische's influence over him. Still, Tharomog accepted Merische's request and fulfilled it, but not before tampering with the crown. He had made it so that whoever wore the crown, would be stilled with a feeling of absolute power, a feeling so powerful it would corrupt them.
The corrupted crown caused the elven king to wage war and ended up warping his tribe of elves in such a wicked way that they became dark elves.
Of course plenty more things happened but this is long enough, haha
So how about you? Do you guys have any crazy myths in your world?

For geeks and nerds, artists, writers, philosophers, politicians and scientists alike: The creation of new worlds and new universes has been a key element of science fiction and fantasy. It can also exist outside the realm of scifi-literature and RPG-gaming as a means of exploring possibilities.
