Gods And Beliefs

Religion and spiritual belief is a large part of the lives of mortals in Alvena. Faith moves mountains, wages war, heals the sick, and even calls back souls from the clutches of death. With such power, it is no wonder that faith and religion is a driving force in Alvena and the lives of its people.

The Seven True Gods

Before the world was, there were seven beings who roamed the cosmos. Together they created the world, then hide themselves in the far reaches of their new universe. They have become lost to time, and their histories shrouded in mystery. Nearly forgotten, some believe they still watch over humanity in secret.

Commonly Worshiped Gods

There are many gods that are accepted throughout the world. Their followers have spread their word far and wide, and their places of worship can be found throughout the world. Not all of them or their followers are welcome in all lands (especially in the case of certain evil gods), but their existence is both believed and potentially feared almost universally.
