Alignments are a guide for your character’s actions. Minor transgressions (say one or two a session) probably won’t even be noticed, let alone recorded. Sudden shifts or frequent transgressions will get a little sidebar. Playing a different alignment will result in... a new alignment. If this messes up your character, sidebar and we might do it your way... or not.
Alignment is detectable via magic and other means.
Evil alignments are allowed.
Gods of Greyhawk:
Al’AkbarThousands of worshippers, scores of temples, and hundreds of clerics are devoted to this demipower, though his influence is almost nonexistent east of the Crystalmist Mountains. The Mosque in Ekbir draws tens of thousands of faithful a year to view the Cup and Talisman of Al'Akbar, and is the holiest of locales in the religion.
AlliturExact numbers of actual worshippers to this lesser power are unknown, but most courts and lawyers at least make offerings to him.
AnubisRuins of a temple of Anubis have been found in the Amedio Jungle, but no clerics of this deity have been seen in the Flanaess. Most knowledge comes from information exchanged with Lu Shin to the east.
AoDivided into the Western Diocese based in Greyhawk, and the Eastern Diocese based in Lumin, this church is growing in power and influence since the Drow Invasion and may have over 1,000 members.
AphroditeDisplaced from the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful have moved to the Solnor Compact and the Sea Barons. There are no temples dedicated to the Goddess of Love, since the temples of Zeus house all of the clerics of the pantheon.
ApepCertainly venerated by the Yuan-ti, temples of the Snake God are frequently found but just as frequently destroyed (along with their clerics).
ApolloDisplaced from the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful have moved to the Solnor Compact and the Sea Barons. There are no temples dedicated to Apollo, since the temples of Zeus house all of the clerics of the pantheon.
AresThere are no known temples to Ares, and his clerics are not allowed in Zeus’ temples, though there are certainly secret shrines throughout the Aerdi Sea.
ArtemisDisplaced from the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful have moved to the Solnor Compact and the Sea Barons. There are no temples dedicated to Artemis, since the temples of Zeus house all of the clerics of the pantheon. However, shrines have been found in the wilderness areas, and the faith may be spreading more rapidly than anticipated.
Asgardian PantheonWorshipped almost exclusively in the northeast of Oerik, the few hundred Asgardian clerics and their flocks worship all of the deities in the pantheon. Some may be revered more than others, but all temples and shrines are dedicated to all of the Asgard Gods.
AthenaDisplaced from the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful have moved to the Solnor Compact and the Sea Barons. There are no temples dedicated to Athena, since the temples of Zeus house all of the clerics of the pantheon, but certain high ranking military officers may worship her and support construction of a temple.
AtroaUsually mistaken for an aspect of Fharlanghn, she nonetheless has a handful of clerics spread across the land.
BahamutExact numbers of humanoid worshippers is unknown, but probably less than 100. The only known temple is in the Lortmil Mountains, and that is ancient beyond even the Elves’ recollection.
BastAnother sect believed to be common to the south of Gateway and Lu Shin; no clerics of the Cat God have revealed themselves in the Flanaess.
BeltarSeen in greater numbers since the Sea of Dust explorations have begun in earnest, clerics to this evil Suel lesser power are numerous among humanoids in and around the Hellfurnaces.
BeoryThough scores of clerics and druids worship this greater goddess, there is no formal structure or hierarchy, so the thousands who honor her cannot be called a church.
BereiToo disorganized and weak to be called a church, there are few clerics to this lesser power, though possibly millions pay homage to her in their homes.
BesBes is little known among sages in the Flanaess, though clerics have been seen in Lu Shin lands.
BlereddPatron of smiths across the land, there are few (if any) clerics of this lesser god.
BoccobThousands of worshippers, dozens of temples and scores of clerics mark Boccob’s declining influence. Once the favored patron of arcane casters throughout the world, the lack of action in the face of the Mage Assassinations forty years ago disillusioned many in the church. If the trend of losing worshippers continues unabated, it will still be many years before this is downgraded to a cult.
BralmNo clerics or active temples to this lesser goddess have been seen in nearly a century, and she may have been supplanted by another.
CelestianOverlapping spheres with his brother Fharlanghn, this intermediate god is revered by navigators and astronomers more specifically than travelers.
Corellon LarethianMajor temples exist in Celene and Ulek, though small chapels and shrines can be found wherever elves live. Clerics are few, though they work with all Elves to protect and preserve the forests and their way of life.
CyndorClerics and worshippers of the lesser god of time are almost never seen, though the greatest heroes of the land surely know of his endless recording of their deeds in his Perpetual Libram.
DaltIt is uncertain if this lesser god of locks still exists, and no known clerics have been seen in decades.
DellebPatron of libraries, this lesser god does not have a church, but is revered by librarians and sages throughout the land.
DemeterDisplaced from the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful have moved to the Solnor Copact and the Sea Barons. There are no temples dedicated to Demeter, since the temples of Zeus house all of the clerics of the pantheon, though small shrines in the countryside are tended by common folk.
DennariCommonly worshipped in the Yeomanry, clerics of Dennari are rarely seen elsewhereTheir small chapels attract the hardy people of that nation, and nearly half of the population reveres Dennari. Other faiths are tolerated by the hundred or so clerics, though they are usually viewed as naïve.
DionysusDisplaced from the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful have moved to the Solnor Copact and the Sea Barons. There are no temples dedicated to Dionysus, since the temples of Zeus house all of the clerics of the pantheon.
EhlonnaToo small and disorganized to be called a church, there are literally hundreds of shrines and chapels dedicated to Ehlonna scattered throughout the forests and hamlets of Oerik. Most shrines do not have a resident cleric, but the chapels may have several. Defending the forest and its creatures are the primary concern of the clerics, and they may request help from the elves if the need is great
ElisharBrought to the Flanaess by the refugees of the Ruined Lands, the clerics of Elishar are very few in number and quite secretive (due to the influence of the Taiian and Al’Akbarian clerics). When a cleric can establish a following outside of the western lands, it is usually tolerated. In Lu Shin, Elishar is popular but overshadowed by Taiia.
ErythnulThis god was destroyed at the outbreak of the Drow Invasion and remains dead to this day.
FharlanghnOnly a few dozen smallish chapels would seem to indicate that the church is not very widespread, but there are thousands of roadside shrines across the continent. Since the clerics are so mobile, their strength can only be roughly estimated at about 2,000 members.
FortuboThis lesser dwarven god is revered with Moradin, and draws his strength from the Soul Forger.
Garl GlittergoldWith a chapel in every major Gnome community, and shrines in the rest, Garl Glittergold’s reach is far and wide. And with thousands of clerics, the church is quite powerful. However, the Gnome clerics have little reason to interact with their human counterparts, so their influence on non-Gnomes is minimal.
GeshtaiThis lesser goddess is worshipped exclusively in the west by Baklunish nomads, though she is revered by everyone in the dry plains and steppes.
GruumshShrines to Gruumsh can be found where ever Orcs settle, but are frequently smashed into ruins if discovered by Humans, as was done to the Temple in Stoneheim. The one exception is in Bantan, where the Marquis allows a few chapels to exist.
HadesDisplaced from the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful have moved to the Solnor Compact and the Sea Barons. There are no temples dedicated to Hades, since the temples of Zeus house all of the clerics of the pantheon, though there are persistent rumors of a sect operating in Rel Astra
HathorThough no clerics have been discovered, two ruined temples of Hathor have been discovered in the Amedio Jungle. There is some contact with worshippers in Lu Shin lands.
HecateDisplaced from the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful have moved to the Solnor Compact and the Sea Barons. There are no temples dedicated to Hecate, since the temples of Zeus house all of the clerics of the pantheon, and Wee Jas is a much more powerful goddess
HeironeousWith major temples in Hookhill (Gran March), Mitrik (Veluna), Veluna City (Veluna), Chendl (Furyondy), Dyvers, Radigast City (Urnst), Leukish (Urnst), and Rel Mord (Nyrond) and chapels in nearly every town that holds good deeds and justice as values, the Church of Heironeous is both powerful and prolific. Clerics could easily number into the thousands, with nearly an equal number of knights and paladins.
HephaestusDisplaced from the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful have moved to the Solnor Compact and the Sea Barons. There are no temples dedicated to Hephaestus, since the temples of Zeus house all of the clerics of the pantheon, though clerics do operate a hospital in Ountsy.
HeraDisplaced from the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful have moved to the Solnor Compact and the Sea Barons. There are no temples dedicated to Hera, since the temples of Zeus house all of the clerics of the pantheon
HerculesDisplaced from the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful have moved to the Solnor Compact and the Sea Barons. There are no temples dedicated to Hercules, since the temples of Zeus house all of the clerics of the pantheon and the clerics rarely act without support of friendly clerics within the pantheon
HermesDisplaced from the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful have moved to the Solnor Compact and the Sea Barons. There are no temples dedicated to Hermes, since the temples of Zeus house all of the clerics of the pantheon, but there may be upwards of a hundred clerics who return to the temples infrequently
HestiaDisplaced from the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful have moved to the Solnor Compact and the Sea Barons. There are no temples dedicated to Hestia, since the temples of Zeus house all of the clerics of the pantheon. At least a score of unassuming clerics aid the common folk of the Solnor Compact, having dedicated themselves to Hestia. They have no temple, but are welcome to visit any of Zeus’ as they see fit.
HextorRelegated to a cult status in many areas, the Church was the power in Ahlissa and North Kingdom, though that status is fading. Scores of temples exist openly, some in cities such as Greyhawk and Dyvers, and clerics and Fists number in the thousands. Cooperation within the church is limited, though discipline and punishment are automatic for transgressions.
IlsensineDestroyed whenever they are found, there are certainly shrines, chapels and temples to the Mind-Flayer god located where surface-dwellers have only had nightmares about.
ImhotepBoth clerics and temples of Imhotep are virtually unheard of in the Flanaess, though mention of him can be found in ruined temples in the Amedio Jungle and even Gateway.
IncabulosAs the greater god of disease, clerics and churches of Incabulos are always hidden, even in the most evil of lands. Nerull is actually more accepted than Incabulos.
IsisOnly one known priestess of Isis has been seen in the Flanaess, and she died over one hundred years ago. Lost and alone, it is from her that most of the knowledge about the Pharaonic pantheon (at least in the Flanaess) originated. She is popular in the lands south of Lu Shin.
IstusFew churches to the greatest of the Baklunish goddesses exist, but there are hundreds of clerics devoted to her in an attempt to bend fate to their wills.
IuzAny existing “clerics” of Iuz are posers, as this god was destroyed decades ago and remains dead.
JascarFew clerics to this Suel god of the mountains exist, but intact shrines have been discovered in the ruins of underground Goblin and Orc lairs. Clerics of Jascar are frequently targeted for assassination by Goblin and Orc temples.
JoramyThere may be a few shrines and clerics to this lesser goddess, but they (like her) are too argumentative to form any cohesive grouping.
KelanenKelanen is the demigod of Swords. His worship is restricted to a variety of cults, primarily along the western edge of the Flanaess, and in particular Ket.
KordMore common in the north, chapels of Kord can be found in Greyhawk, Dyvers, and Mitrik (Veluna). Larger temples are located in Schwartzenbruin (Perrenland) and Marner (Ratikirad). Shrines to Kord can be found in other cities and towns, usually attended by a single cleric. The clerics of one area may compete with those from another, though they will cooperate if the need is pressing.
KurellFew worship this lesser god at all, let alone devote clerics or build shrines or temples.
KurtulmakOnly found in large Kobold communities, temples are powerful and dangerous places for intruders. Unfortunately for the Kobolds, their power and reputation does not extend far beyond their patrols.
LendorA scattering of clerics worship this intermediate god, though there are certainly more shrines and devotees than there are to Cyndor.
LirrA growing number of clerics worship this lesser goddess of poetry, though respects are paid to her by nearly every bard in the land.
LlergThere may be a few clerics who still worship this lesser Suel god, though few people have even heard of him as he is vastly overshadowed by Kord.
LolthThere are certainly still shrines and chapels to the Demon Queen of Spiders in the Underdark, but they are long abandoned after this god was destroyed at the outset of the Drow Invasion.
LydiaA Suel lesser goddess, Lydia is worshipped widely and is something of a patron to those seeking to educate others. As a result, clerics are plentiful (if not particularly powerful), and small churches see double duty as halls of records in larger towns and cities.
Maker, TheNo mention of this being or force appeared until the Mek came into existence, and there are no known clerics, so little is known about whether or not the The Maker is a true god.
MayaheineThough boasting a few dozen chapels, word and influence of this demigoddess of protection has not extended far beyond Nyrond’s borders.
MerikkaRevered by expectant mothers, this demigoddess is unlikely to fade from the land any time soon, despite having few clerics and no chapels.
MoradinRarely seen by non-Dwarves, there is a temple to the Soul Forger in every dwarven community that can support it. If the delve is too small, a shrine takes the place of the temple, but the clerics are part of a vast network that keeps the dwarven hierarchy functioning.
MouqolRevered by the Baklunish merchants throughout the area west of the Crystalmist Mountains, this lesser god’s influence is not felt in the east.
MyhrissThis lesser goddess comes into direct conflict with Aphrodite, and her handfuls of priestesses do not get along well with those that intrude on “her” domain.
NerullExact numbers of worshippers of the Reaper are unknown, and since most are self-serving it can only be assumed that the secretive temples must be as well. The Ruby Goddess is more understandable than the Reaper, and has gained favor among all but the most insane evildoers.
NephthysThough evidence of her temple can be found in several of the ruins in the jungles, no cleric of Nephthys is known of in the Flanaess. However, Lu Shin sees clerics of this goddess on occasion.
NikeDisplaced from the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful have moved to the Solnor Compact and the Sea Barons. There are no temples dedicated to Nike, since the temples of Zeus house all of the clerics of the pantheon, though a few monuments have been restored
NoreboAs a lesser Suel god of gambling, Norebo has few (if any) clerics, but hundreds offer prayers to him every night to change their luck.
Obad-HaiFound mainly in the larger forests across the continent, temples of The Shalm are not many, and are generally too concerned with their own area of responsibility to be concerned with other matters. Clerics of Obad-Hai are thought to number only a few hundred, though their isolationist nature makes them difficult to account for.
OlidammaraMajor temples are thought to exist in most metropolises of the Flanaess, though the multi-faceted nature of The Laughing Rogue’s clerics makes them hard to identify.
OsirisOsiris is known for his prominence in the ruined temples of the Amedio Jungle, and because his clerics are the most common of the Pharaonic pantheon encountered in Lu Shin.
OspremWorshipped almost exclusively by the Scarlet Brotherhood sailors, this lesser Suel goddess has a few clerics and small shrines in coastal towns in the peninsula.
PanThere are no known clerics of Pan, and no temples. This deity’s influence is apparently blocked by stronger, non-Olympian gods.
PelorFrom massive temples in Mitrik (Veluna) and Rel Mord (Nyrond) to hidden sanctuaries in Ahlissa, Pelor’s influence (and clerics) can be found everywhere on the continent. Though not tightly organized, the thousands of clerics and worshippers continually demonstrate what thousands of good intentions can accomplish.
PhaulkonFar less worshipped than his son Kord, this lesser god controls the skies, but has few earthly clerics or temples.
PholtusIn decline in old Aerdi lands, this intermediate god has largely been supplanted by Saint Cuthbert, though a handful of clerics maintain small shrines here and there.
PhytonThis lesser Suel god of nature is known only to sages now, since Ehlonna took over his portfolio.
PoseidonDisplaced from the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful have moved to the Solnor Compact and the Sea Barons. There are no temples dedicated to Poseidon, since the temples of Zeus house all of the clerics of the pantheon, though many Procan worshippers have converted to Poseidon in the last few years.
ProcanThis intermediate god is worshipped by sailors and residents in coastal areas, more to placate than to revere him. There are a few shrines and under-powered clerics, but they suffer random repercussions from their stormy god and many have converted to worshipping the less mercurial Poseidon.
PtahNo temples or clerics of Ptah have been discovered, and he is only known of through rumors and rare contact across the ocean in Lu Shin.
PyremiusThis lesser god of fire is worshipped exclusively within the Scarlet Brotherhood, and though there are hundreds or thousands of assassins who revere him, very few are clerics.
RalishazAs the intermediate god of misfortune, there are no clerics or shrines to Ralishaz, though thousands present offerings and prayers to appease him.
RaoOne of the few greater gods without a large church, Rao’s peaceful clerics were exterminated during the Drow Invasion. Membership has grown in the last decade, and many of the old chapels are being restored.
RaxivortAs lesser god of wererats, temples and clerics of Raxivort are routinely put down.
Re-HorakhtyRumored to be quite numerous south of Lu Shin and the Amedio Jungle, there are no known temples in the Flanaess.
RuddDemigoddess of skill, there are no known clerics or shrines to Rudd, though she receives hundreds of prayers a day.
Saint CuthbertThe huge cathedral in Wintershiven (Pale) is the center of the church, with smaller temples in the cities and towns of the Pale, and chapels in nearly every village. Outside of the Pale, there are just as many chapels as inside, but the clerics are slightly more tolerant than those closest to the cathedral. With upwards of 2,000 clerics, the church is organized, powerful, and inflexible.
Sehainine MoonbowWorshipped in conjunction with her husband Corellon Larethian, the intermediate Elven goddess of mysticism has few followers devoted solely to her.
SetKnown only through rumors from Lu Shin, no temples or clerics have been revealed by those in the Flanaess.
SobekThe Crocodile God is only known of in the Flanaess through rumors, though explorers from Lu Shin have had the misfortune of finding a temple on occasion.
SotillionWith the lesser goddess of comfort having no contact with her lazy clerics in decades, this cult is thought to be dead.
SytulThe lesser goddess of lies, this hag has a few strong clerics, but her temples and worshippers are regularly cut down.
TaiiaWorshiped in the far western plains, clerics of Taiia tolerate no other religions, and in turn are tolerated by none. Since the followers of Taiia occupy the same lands as those of Al’Akbar, there is nearly constant strife between the two religions. Clerics of Taiia can be intolerant and ruthless, though this is not the norm, especially as they interact with more religions of the Flanaess. She is also the official deity of the Shin Empire, though few worshippers of other gods are tolerated in Lu Shin.
TelchurNo contact with the lesser god of winter has been had in years, and the frozen shrines to him remain untended.
TharizdunClerics of the insane god no longer receive power from him, and their madness has not been even whispered in nearly fifty years.
ThothNo temples or clerics of Thoth have been discovered by those of in the Flanaess, though Lu Shin sages know of him.
TiamatOnly a few small, well-hidden temples to Tiamat are thought to exist, and perhaps as many as a hundred non-dragons revere her. Since dragons may cooperate with these clerics, they are considered exceptionally dangerous.
ToldothAlso brought to the Flanaess by refugees, Toldoth’s clerics are used to operating in secret so have been able to grow more than the cult of Elishar. However, this ability to expand in “their” land has meant that their influence has not spread eastward. In Lu Shin, clerics of the God of Darkness are dealt with decisively.
TrithereonClerics of the intermediate god of individuality were cut down en masse during the Drow Invasion, but his influence has rebounded of late as his scattered and individual churches were restored by lesser clerics.
TycheDisplaced from the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful have moved to the Solnor Compact and the Sea Barons. There are no temples dedicated to Tyche, since the temples of Zeus house all of the clerics of the pantheon.
UlaaNearly wiped out by Iuz’s hordes, the intermediate goddess of the mountains is very slowly rebuilding her influence on Oerth through helpful dwarf and gnome miners.
VatunClerics of the lesser god of the northern barbarians were butchered into extinction by the unenlightened who believed them to be in league with Iuz. Though this god still lives, there are no clerics or faithful to worship him.
VecnaNumbers of temples and clerics to Vecna cannot be determined due to their intense drive for secrecy. Recently, comparisons between Vecna and Lu Shin’s Todolth have arisen, bringing a possible connection between the two gods to light.
VelniusClerics of the god of weather are many, but they are not powerful and do not organize into churches. However, the offerings of thousands of farmers keeps this cult from declining.
WastriClerics of the Hopping Prophet are killed where ever they are found, and if not for the alliances with darker gods of the Yuan-Ti, this god would have surely have fallen by now.
Wee JasWith major temples in Rel Astra, Greyhawk, Dyvers, and Monmurg (Sea Princes), and chapels in many other major cities, there are surprisingly few clerics of Wee Jas. Shrines and temples are generally not tolerated in smaller communities, though this is not true in Sesla Ludan. There, the clerics appear to aid the community and run the hospitals, and they are seen as Guardians of the Dead. Worshippers in Sesla Ludan lands are increasing quickly, and many hundreds of arcane casters have converted from worship of Boccob to the Ruby Lady.
WentaThe lesser goddess of brewing, she has few coherent followers but literally millions who “worship” her at taverns nightly.
Xan YaeNearly a full church, clerics of the lesser goddess of stealth are rarely found, but are suspected to be hidden among lonely monasteries. The ignorant and intolerant mistake her followers for Brotherhood agents, but this only strengthens their resolve. She is very popular among militant Shin that do not revere Taiia.
XerboBarely any traces remain to indicate this lesser god of the sea was worshipped, and no known clerics or temples exist. Debate among scholars as to which god (Procan or Poseidon) assumed this god’s portfolio is entertaining, but ultimately irrelevant.
Ye’CindDebate among colonist scholars as to whether this demigod truly has any followers is tiresome, and no clerics or temples exist to prove otherwise.
YondallaEvery Halfling community has at least a shrine to Yondalla in its midst, though chapels seem to be the most common. The church is powerful among Halflings, but its influence rarely extends beyond the fields, burrows, and caravans.
ZagygDespised by most of the knowledgeable people of Oerth, Zagyg is still divine, but has no followers after Iuz’s disastrous escape from Zagyg’s prison.
ZeusFormerly only worshipped in the Spindrift Isles, the clerics and faithful were forced out when the Isles became a haven for elves. Now firmly based in the Solnor Compact and the Sea Barons, the influence of the pantheon is spreading. Technically only a cult, all of the deities of the pantheon are worshipped in Zeus’ temples, making for a much larger (and more organized) body of clerics and faithful, and resulting in the cult having to be treated as a large church.
ZilchusRecently upgraded to a full church, several rich temples can be found throughout the Ahlissa and the Solnor Compact. Chapels, clerics and worshippers can now be found nearly anywhere in the Flanaess where trade flows, and his influence is only growing.
ZodalClerics of the lesser god of mercy are thought to number in the dozens, but there are no temples to support them. Seen as a lesser aspect of Rao, offerings are still made to Zodal by those who bring hope and aid to those.
ZuokenThis god was thought dead since Iuz escaped Zagyg’s prison, and served to increase the disdain toward Zagyg among his former followers who had turned to Xan Yae. However, his return in 590 CY proved his divinity, and his worshippers (especially at the Brilliant Dusk Monastery) have rapidly increased.
