Religion plays an important part in Layonara's societies. Across the world of Layonara, races pay homage to many deities with different rituals and customs. The deities mentioned here are the most widely known and influential. The world is filled with shrines to these deities, the number of temples if far less because of the cost and effort required for temples. The deities are divided into pantheons along racial lines. The race with which the religion originated or where it has the deepest support is indicated by its pantheon. However, this is an artificial division. It is possible for an individual to worship a deity from a different race's pantheon and in some cases to actually be clergy of that deity. There are a few deities with a small amount of power, relatively unknown deities, that only grant limited spells or spells of limited power; these will have to be found in the game through roleplaying. There will be times when you may encounter individuals who follow deities that are not included in these pages.
