I think the expaction is that you will view gods in PoE as D&D style, or Olympian style. Reveal at the end is less about what they are, or questioning their power, but asking: should they exist and should they have this power and do they deserve to have such profound influence over people. To me it was less about Gods, and more about humanity. Do people deserve to know there is no higher power? Is higher power really reliable if it was created by humans? I am still trying to figure out what my orlan merchant would think... hopefully deadfire will help in making my mind up.
My issue with the reveal was they did not really set up the Gods as having a big background creation myth that got shattered that I was aware of. They are only ever interacted with as beings who have power now over material things. And they do.
So the fact they are powerful immortal beings that have power over the things in their portfolio was not actually shaken by the realization they were made by the Engwithans. I mean they currently exist and Ondra really can mess with the seas so you probably should appease her before that voyage. I mean how is that different from the Olympian Gods? And with Eothas coming back it is pretty clear we have no idea how to get rid of them.
So how are they fake gods? What exactly is a god? Thaos asked this question.
