Legacy Deities

From Traykon Campaign Setting
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Although the following Deities are not among the gods of Traykon, due to the nature of how people are occasionally brought to Traykon these gods can find their followers in Traykon. A note for Game Masters though, if these deities manifest their avatars or extend a miracle into Traykon they become trapped. The following Deities were collected from the official D&D campaign worlds. I have created a background for these deities that allows for their inclusion in Traykon.

Elven Pantheon (3.5 Edition)

Creation stories for the Elven Pantheon vary, but the pantheon as group gained a foothold in Traykon during the time of the first great cataclysm. Widespread worship began during the Age of Darkness. With the founding of the kingdom of Teledorn the Elven Pantheon gained immense power by being the dominant religion of the magocracy. Many shrines are dedicated to the Elf Gods but their temples can only be found in large cities. Worship of these gods tends to take place in natural settings such as a sacred grove or grassy knoll.

Clerics can worship the Pantheon as a whole without paying particular devotion to any one deity over the others. These priests are normally found in small elven towns or outposts and seek the betterment of elves as a whole. Pantheon priests can be any Chaotic alignment and wear clothing the color of the seasons. They can choose any two domains that appear under any elven deity's profile.

Aerdrie Faenya
Weather Goddess
Chaotic Good Air, Chaos, Healing, Weather As goddess of the wind and storms Aerdrie Faenya is revered by all who are involved in agriculture and depend upon her good grace for their livelihood.

Corellon Larethian
Elf Father
Chaotic Good Chaos, Community, Creation, Good, Protection, War Corellon is the Creator of the race of Elves and the nominal leader of the Elven Pantheon.

Deep Sashelas
Sea God
Chaotic Good Good, Luck, Travel, Water The patron deity of Aquatic Elves. Although completely devoted to the care and protection of the seas and oceans, Deep Sashelas still answers to Corellon and abides by the wishes of the rest of the Elven Pantheon. His clerics and druids are either aquatic or live near large bodies of water. He concerns himself with the preservation of the deep as well as keeping the threats of the great dark such as the evil aquatic races in check. Those who sail or fish his waters offer prayers and gifts to please him and beseech his blessings.
Eilistraee
Moon Goddess
Chaotic Good Chaos, Darkness, Good, Luck, Travel The youngest daughter of Corellon Larethian, Eilistraee is wild and disobedient.

On nights of the full moon they gather together with the faithful and dance naked under the stars.
Hanali Celanil
Romance Goddess

God of Time
Chaotic Good

Artifice, Celerity, Chaos, Knowledge, Repose

Rillifane Rallathil
The Leaflord
Chaotic Good Air, Animal, Earth, Plant, Sun The great elven deity of nature and life, Rillifane Rallathil reveres all things in nature and holds life sacred. He is an ancient deity who predates even Corellon. Some sages believe this deity is an aspect of Yggdrasil or Silvanus but his elven clerics deny such claims.
Sehanine Moonbow
Goddess of Mystery
Chaotic Good Air, Chaos, Darkness, Luck Often called the Lady of Dreams, Sehanine is another goddess associated with the moon. Her power is said to wax and wane with the moon itself.

Solonor Thelandira
God of Hunting
Chaotic Good Animal, Earth, Strength, Trickery, War This solitary deity seldom mixes with the rest of the pantheon.

He is a favorite deity of elven rangers and his priests often find themselves far away from civilization. His favored weapon is the Longbow.

Erevan Ilesere
God of Trickery

Chaotic Neutral Chaos, Darkness, Luck, Trickery Erevan Ilesere is chaos incarnate. His delights in spreading mayhem for the sheer joy. Despite this, his pranks are seldom serious or life threatening but more of an embarrassment or annoyance. His clerics are very unorganized and seldom hold ceremonies but instead lead the faithful by example in disrupting order and frustrating the serious. Even though Erevan is so carefree and chaotic, he harbors a deep devotion to the elven race and will not tolerate stronger or oppressive forces striking against the elves.
Fenmarel Mestarine
God of Protection
Chaotic Neutral Magic, Protection, Repose, Strength Much like his brother Solonor Thelandira, Fenmarel Mestarine is a solitary deity. However, he is very cynical and an outcast from the rest of the elven pantheon by choice. He teaches through his clerics that life is harsh and full of betrayal. Only through constant vigilance and a ready hand may one evade the stroke of one's enemy. Just as his brother, he patrols the outskirts of elven lands watching for threats. His followers tend to be outcasts from the rest of elven society. He is the patron of Wild Elves and prides himself on their independence and strength. He is also considered as a funerary deity in many places. He teaches that the dead should pass to the realms beyond and is unmerciful to the undead or their masters.
Vhaerun
God of Thieves
Neutral Evil Darkness, Luck, Travel, Trickery Dark and secretive, this elven Deity is an outcast amongst all others in the pantheon.

Klanransalee
Goddess of Undead
Chaotic Evil Death, Destruction, Disease, Thaumaturgy Corellon's greatest failure is often considered to be his loss of Klanransalee, his oldest daughter. Corellon cursed her mortal lover for great acts of blasphemy as an undead apparition, but she joined him as a willing concubine despite his unholy form. Fleeing the rest of the pantheon for the demonic realms, she swore vengeance for her lover's state. Her priests are great necromancers who also traffic with fiends. Few elves will speak her name openly for fear of her wrath.
Loth
The Spider Goddess
Chaotic Evil Chaos, Destruction, Evil, Trickery Loth holds little power in Traykon. Although she managed to bring a small group of her children into the realm through one of the black gateways, too few of them managed the crossing to be a dominant force in the underground of Traykon. Consequently, she has expanded her efforts to coax surface elves to turn down dark pathways of treachery and betrayal.

Dwarven Pantheon (3.5 Edition)

The first Dwarves began to appear in Traykon early during the Age of Man, long before the first cataclysm. With their arrival, the Dwarven Pantheon begun to spread their influence to Traykon. It wasn't until the Guild Wars of 3015 Rhondal that the Dwarven Pantheon begun to strongly influence the workings of dwarves in Traykon. Due to some mysterious effects of the Cataclysm, the Dwarven Pantheon was greatly weakened and it wasn't until shortly after the death of the Duguer did the rest of the gods begin to feel their full power returning to Traykon.

Clerics can worship the Pantheon as a whole without paying particular devotion to any one deity over the others. These priests are normally found in small mining camps or outposts and seek the betterment of dwarves as a whole.

Gnome Deities (3.5 Edition)

Gnomes appeared in Traykon during the Age of Darkness right after the great cataclysm. Little is known of their early years in Traykon but the gnome deities have kept their followers out of most major happenings in the history of Traykon. Some attribute this noninvolvement to cowardice or weakness but others see it as a simple survival mechanism born of cunning and wisdom. Clerics can worship the Pantheon as a whole without paying particular devotion to any one deity over the others. These priests are normally found in small gnome towns or outposts and seek the betterment of gnomes as a whole. Pantheon priests can be any good alignment. They can choose any two domains that appear under any gnome deity's profile.

Halfling Deities (3.5 Edition)

It is generally accepted that the Halflings of Traykon are too spread out and disorganized to be of any major significance to future events. The truth however is by Yondalla's decree most Halfling settlements have moved far away from dangerous kingdoms and rulers after the mass extermination of her children in the Empire. A certain sect within Arvoreen's clergy work with the other deities' blessing and are preparing for a time when they must fight not in defense of Halfling homelands but must strike outward at threats before they can commit a similar atrocity as befell those killed by the Yuan-Ti.

Clerics can worship the Pantheon as a whole without paying particular devotion to any one deity over the others.

God of Stealth
