Gods and Religion

There are several pantheons. Each culture has their own pantheon. Also, as the gods are literal beings, they interact with each other even outside of their worshipers.

Gods of the Dragon Empire

The humans of the Dragon Empire represent dozens of cultures and a corresponding number of pantheons. Many had begun to merge together, aided by the Imperial religion accepting all gods as valid. The Priestess has taken that a step further, creating the Cathedral. Not all gods are part of the Cathedral, though. Some, like the Aesir of the northern barbarians haven’t had enough exposure within the Empire yet. Others cling to their own cultures and resist mingling with others. Also, there are forbidden gods, though they aren’t as forbidden as they once were since the Crusader openly worships them and acts on their behalf and he is tolerated. Other races vary in their response.

Elven Gods

The elves have a relatvely unified pantheon, but they have their own schisms between Elven Orthodoxy vs. classical forms of the religion, plus a growing influence of druidism represented by the High Druid. Orthodoxy is very opposed to joining the Citadel so at present they have not, though some elves would like to see it. One of the big differences is that each of the three subraces once had their one traditions and cults and patron gods, but now the High Elves have claimed all authority to speak for the gods. This has not gone over well.

The Three Sisters are a major set of elven gods.

Other Races

Halflings and dwarves… I don’t know. It hasn’t come up yet.

Goblins have no pantheons of their own. Many goblins worship gods, but usually because ones they have borrowed or had thrust upon them.

Giants and Jotun

Giants worship the Jotun, ancient god-giants. They claim the new gods descend from Jotun the same way that the lesser races descend from giants.
