God/Deity Domain Brief Description
Andora Nature Andora is the goddess of nature, having reign over the planet itself. Her anger is swift, but her love and devotion sincere and soft. Many of her followers tend to be druids and rangers.
Aziel Discipline Aziel represents everything that is the embodiment of discipline. He is a wise, fair, and just god, and attracts many clerics and monks as his followers. It is, however, not unknown for druids, rangers, and paladins to be found in his congregation.
Daij Darkness Daij is an evil god whose domain of control lies in darkness and deceit. His only purpose is dealing death, evil, and spreading illness and disease in the world. His timeless opponent is Lirannon.
Jopha Luck/Fortune Jopha is the god of luck and fortune. He is followed mostly by bards and thieves, though most any class can be found in tow. Jopha was a bard before his ascension to godhood, and there are many legendary stories that he published before attaining immortality. Jopha can be followed by an adventurer of any alignment, but paladins and druids are restricted from his faith.
Lirannon Light Lirannon is the god of all that is good within the world, and many of his followers are inherently clerics and paladins. Lirannon is in a constant struggle with Daij.
Maelik Combat/Honor Maelik is a bloodthirsty god who's followers appease him through the constant strife of battle and bloodshed. A very egotistical god, Maelik requires honor from all of his followers, who tend to be Fighters, Monks, or Battle Clerics.
Nefyr Chaos Nefyr is the god of Chaos, and reigns supreme on causing trouble. Many lost souls wander towards the light of Nefyr, only to be smited down by the god in order to preserve chaotic order.
Nelenwe Balance Nelenwe is the god of true neutrality, apathy, and ambiguity. Balance of karma, good and light, and justice are the alma mater of this deity, who primarily attracts Thieves, Bards, Rangers, and Wizards.
Omari Magic Omari is the all encompassing god of magic throughout the land. He is known to be quite reclusive, but some have reported communing with him in dire times of trouble. His followers tend to be exclusively wizards, although some clerics and even bards have been found in the midst of his gatherings.
