Elgardt is a realm of many gods, from the familial pantheon created by Alphamus and Maelanon, human born god Omegus, lesser known gods and even some foreign deities. Due to this everyone can find a deity that suits their needs, whether they adore the glory of battle or hiding away surrounded by books.

Miloren[edit | edit source]

'Goddess of Travellers, Mycticism and Lore'

Gleggorsa[edit | edit source]

'The "Ugly" Scribe' 'Keeper of the Libary Infinitum' 'Writer of the Book of Life'

Followers of Note: Muradi'el Alphari (Doom Prophets of the Murder Elves)

Gleggorsa is a blind patron goddess of Bards and Musicians and is tasked with recording all that occurs in the Material Realm. She is also charged with keeping the Score (Music of Eternity) which was created by Alphamus along with every book that will ever be written that is kept in her Library. The Library exists in a pocket reality and outside of time, allowing her to see everything that happens along with all other possibilities. The Muradi'el Alphari dedicated their lives to the study of the Song of Creation and claim to have visited the Library Infinitum and "peered over the scribes shoulder to the final pages". The truth of these claims are, of course, untested.

Deities of Nature[edit | edit source]

Ashovilla[edit | edit source]

'Goddess of the Sun and Harvest'

Followers of Note: The city of Embör

Is known to help things grow, watch over the lands, bring warmth, help change the seasons and to care for farmer's crops. She is the lover of the unnamed Lunar God and has great love and care for the people of Elgardt.

Lunar God[edit | edit source]

'Lonely Man of the Moon'

Followers of Note:

Ashovilla's lover, he became saddened by her distress during the reign of the Shadow King. So to he sent help to Elgardt in the form of his dragons and gave the blessing of magic onto people of all kinds and races. Unlike the other dieties, the God of the Moon was not born from Alphamus, and originates from a world outside Alphamus' creation. Due to this so do the dragon and the magic of the world. Everything that is known about the Cult of the Moon is speculative and passed down through generations of Druidic observances.

Tyloth[edit | edit source]

'Goddess of Victory and Hunting'

Followers of Note:

Another deity who enjoys battle, she grants victory by putting people trough trials and leads hunters to their prey. Sometimes she takes the guise of a giant wolf and is believed to be the first deity to get involved in the War of the Gods during the First Age.

Chaos Gods[edit | edit source]

Sken[edit | edit source]

'God of Chaos and Death' 'Lord of Chaos'

Followers of Note:

Sken is rather odd in comparison to many of the other deities. His temple is located at the frozen base of the mountains north of the Foulmarsh instead of near bustling cities where it can be easily accessed. It houses few followers, hardly any manpower for defence and few know of its location though it is impressive to look at. He also prefers to trick people into believing he does not exist and that the ideas they gain are their own and not weaved by him. Unlike other deities he has hardly any respect in those that follow him or try to aid in the completion of his plans by their own will. He instead prefers to send his own minions to reek the chaos unnoticed.

God of the Sky Temple[edit | edit source]

'Savage God of Chaos'[edit | edit source]

Followers of Note: The cannibal residences of the Sky Temple in the South West of Elgardt.

Due to the savage and dangerous nature of the God of the Sky Temple not much is known about this deity. Its followers continue to follow the same barbaric acts of their ancestors and commit not only the act of sacrifice which does still occur elsewhere but also the more barbaric act of cannibalism. Thankfully they do not often move far from their temple and instead pick off unwary travelers heading to or from Chelne by land.

Foreign Deities[edit | edit source]

The White Worm[edit | edit source]

'The Devouring Worm', 'End of Gods and Days', 'The Great White Worm in whose belly everything dies'

Followers of Note: The Murder Elves

This 'deity' is worshipped by many Muradi'el (Murder Elves), although even amongst the Murder Elves there is a great deal of conjecture, debate and conflict regarding the true nature of the White Worm. Many believe that there is a literal slain god, victim of the first murder perpetrated by Alphamus himself, who created the world to bury his handiwork. These followers believe that the boiling rivers of blood that course through the Blood Isles far to the south of Elgardt is the blood of the White Worm seeping from its wounds.

Other Murder Elves, most notably the ancient Alphari Doom-prophets, consider the White Worm to be a figurative device describing the eternal cycle of the Universe through forms and manifestations and the the "White Worm" is the tunnel of indescribable light that the Multiverse itself sees as it dies and is reborn. Dying souls and spirits see a tunnel of light as they pass into death, and this vision is but a indication of the true glory of the "belly of the Worm".

This schism in the interpretation of the White Worm divides many who call themselves Murder Elves and threatens to split the faction into warring halves...
