In my worlds various gods embody elements and concepts. There are many ways they can reach godhod. Inheriting dead gods powers, mortals collective belief birthing gods etc. Gods power effect everything and anything that is related to their concept or elements. While their element and concept isn't just that they are much more. Sorry if I can't explain better at this point.
But here is the example. God of space. Doesn't just effect space. He also effect spaces of things. Like if humans can hold X amount of memories not their head. The God of space can increase that memory space capacity to infinite. Or God of ice can freeze other element, thoughts, tangible and intangible things etc. You get the point.
Gods to sustain themselves and grow more power they need mortal or any living beings to worship them. They sustain themselves from faith. While the faith is intangible concept. The gods can effect it. Such as God of fire burning faith of other gods that are coming out of worshipper. It's not that much of a problem.
What big problems is the others like corruption and poison. God of corruption corrupting faith of other gods. Turning them into corrupted gods. Or God of poison poisoning faith and as a result killing them.
God of fire can help by removing the impurities or God of time reverse them process or god of purification purifying supply faith. But they can help so much.
Some gods can protect themselves like God of earth hardening his faith lol. But beings like God of water can't protect themselves.
So I would like you guys to help me to balance out like those poison or corruption gods. I can't think of way how to deal with this problem
