Faerûnian Pantheon

From Sigil - Planar Legends
Jump to navigation Jump to search

On the small world knows as Toril, a place often forgotten by the deities of the planes, a whole new batch of gods is rising to prominence. Within the last centuries, they've made inroads to establishing themselves as planar powers, bursting out with a speed rivaled only by today's strongest pantheons. Does this spell a new era for the Outer Planes?

That's doubtful. New gods are new gods, and no matter how powerful or subtle they might have been on their prime-material worlds, they've got to learn the ropes of the planes if they hope to survive. That proves tougher than most are prepared for.

Interestingly, while most planar gods consider Tolis a backwater, a few have sent priests to the world, looking to augment their strength by gathering more worshippers. The best example is Tyr of the Norse pantheon; sliding slowly from recognition by his own people, he's managed to establish himself quite strongly on Toril, gaining enough believers to keep him from drifting away onto the Astral.

Others have joined Tyr, including Mielikki and Loviatar of the Finnish pantheon (Loviatar probably chased after Mielikki, who she's always hated), and Silvanus and Oghma of the Celts. What's more, the Faerunian powers Beshaba and Tymora seem to have received some kind of influence from Tyche of the Greek pantheon. And it's likely that this list will grow, as more and more planar gods decide to reestablish themselves or reach for more power.
