Ptolus: The Winter of Death
Gaen, Goddess of Light (LG). Good, Law, Light. A popular and powerful religion. The Temple of Gaen is one of the largest and most impressive temples on a street of large and impressive temples. Gaen’s clerics are proactive and struggle against evil at every turn. Gaen is the sister of Mirresh.
Mirresh, Goddess of Laughter (NG). Good, Protection, Trickery. A minor goddess, Mirresh is popular among entertainers and children. Mirresh is the sister of Gaen.
Jode, Guardian of Song (CG). Air, Luck, Protection. Goddess of music and creativity, her worship in Ptolus centers around the Knights of the Chord and the Jodan Templehall in Oldtown.
Hannan, Lord of the Sun (NG). Good, Healing, Sun. The worshippers of Hannan have recently rejected Gaen and her faith as not the true path to see the sun’s light. There is a strange rivalry between these two faiths now, with the religion of Hannan much less prominent than that of Gaen.
Navashtrom, God of Strength and Harmony (NG). Good, Protection, Strength. A popular religion in Ptolus. The followers of Navashtrom are often warriors and adventurers.
Tardeshou, Goddess of Truth (LG). Good, Knowledge, Law. Sister of Navashtrom, this deity is overshadowed in Ptolus by the worship of her better-known brother.
Watcher of the Skies (N). Air, the Future, Knowledge. A religion based around a deity that “knows all and sees all,” including the future. The Watcher of the Skies is an impassive observer most of the time and may be related somehow to the Old Man. A resurgence in this faith has occurred in the last two years.
The Old Man (LN). Knowledge, Law, Trickery. A strange religion based around a brooding figure known only as “the Old Man” who watches over yet disdains virtually everything.
Celestan, Lord of the Silver Moon (NG). Earth, Good, Protection. Celestan is the main elven deity. Ithildin, ithilnaur, and ithilirid (moonsilver) are said to all be his gifts to his people.
Ardaen, Dead God of Light (NG). N/A. Once a powerful elven god of light, Ardaen is dead, tricked and slain by evil gods (including Gorgoth-Lol).
Myliesha, Mistress of the Wind’s Path (CG). Air, Good, Travel. An elven elemental deity popular particularly with displaced elves living among humans.
Phoeboul, God of Dreams (CN). Chaos, Knowledge, Sleep. An elvish god, Phoeboul is the patron of Dreta Phantas, the Dreaming City, which is now lost.
Sylvanae, the Woodland Shaper (N). Animal, Magic, Plants. God of the fae, the elves, and the woods, this androgynous deity is rarely revered in Ptolus except by gnomes.
Taeshandra, Elvish God of Travel (NG). Good, Plants, Travel. Watches over travelers, particularly those who pay homage at her roadside shrines, usually found only in the woods. Also worshipped by halflings.
Lothian, the Lawbringer and the Daykeeper (LG).
Teun, Mother of All Machines (LN). Civilization, Law, Technology. Another old Prustan deity, Teun is the goddess of machines and technology. She is revered by Grailwarden dwarves as well as humans.
Tevra, the Clockwork Goddess (LN). Healing, Law, Technology. Still another Prustan deity, Tevra is the daughter of Teun. She is thought to sleep now, but will awaken one day to help restore order to the world.
Kharos, God of Magic (N). Knowledge, Magic. An old Prustan deity, Kharos is lord of wizardly magic.
Castain, the Unworshipped. Although the god Castain still exists, after Lothian usurped his Church and followers, it is difficult to still call Castain a god. Certainly, without worshipers, Castain must now be a shell of his former glory.
