Religions

In Lyannus, various deities hold dominion over different aspects of life. Each is worshipped by individuals from varying races, though most worshippers tend to be human. There are some deities who are considered to be the paragons of certain humanoid races (such as the Good Lady Lilandra for the Dwarves, though physically she is thought to have more in common with humans and elves).

The pantheon is split into three tiers: Greater, Lesser, and Outsiders. The Greater deities have the most influence over varying world and cultural events. Lesser deities generally have a little influence over a single (albeit broad) category. The Outsider deities are deities from other worlds or planes that have minimal following here. However, just because they do not have as much influence as the other deities doesn’t mean they cannot help bring about world peace or destruction.

What follows is a simple chart of the Greater and Lesser deities of Lyannus. Over time each deity will have a detailed page dedicated to it.
