Theonosis is a collaborative storytelling, world-building and role-playing game. It is massively multiplayer, and allows anybody to play as large a role as they like in the creation of a fictional universe. You can play a Deity in a role-playing game called Collabor, use the setting for your own novels or other works or help expand and define the largest and most diverse fictional setting ever created. You can also create your own game, whether it's tabletop or live-action role-playing, console or computer video games, miniature wargaming, board or card games, or anything else you can think of. The parameters of the setting are designed so that literally any kind of fantasy-based story can be set there - you can destroy or take over the world, you can create outlandish kingdoms or mundane villages, and any kind of hero or villain you like. The more interesting and compelling your content, the more likely others are to use it in their own works.

The Creative Commons allows you to use the content here in any way you wish so long as you give credit and allow others to use your content in the same way. The Open Setting License is similar, but it does not apply to the entirety of most works; it requires that you allow others to use setting elements like characters and placenames. This means you can use Open Settings without releasing your entire work under a free license. For more information, see Theonosis:Authorship.
