The majority of conventional religions revere above all others a single supreme deity known as Eo. Naturally, Eo has many different names in different languages and amongst different peoples, but this is the simplest and most universally recognised.
Though much of the world reveres the same god, there is no paucity of variety in the ways in which Eo is worshipped, and observed. The different churches vary greatly in laws, traditions, and teachings, depending on which prophets and teachers of history they favour.

The Revelations of Eo

In all the mainstream churches, it is traditional that Eo is revealed in several different ways. The following tables list all the Revelations of Eo, also known as Avatars, or Masks of Eo. Not all Revelations are observed in all traditions. Some clerics focus purely on one of the Revelations, and experience Eo only in that way.

If the worshipper is part of a church as described above, they may choose one domain granted by the church.

Eo Abantu, also known as Evant, Jovan, and many other names, is the form Eo took as creator of the planes, creating order out of chaos.
Eo Matan, also known as Umede, Jomat, among others, is the form of Eo as the healer, provider, and safeguarder of life.
Eo Diegun, also known as Jiho, Jozaio, etc. is the title given to various powerful oracle-priests of Eo who occasionally throughout history become the voice of Eo incarnate. The most recent was Roädan Diegun, born in Ebaroget in 1106, and died in 1137 in Umorit.

Roädan Diegun

Avatar of Eo Diegun.
Feeling their power in the church threatened by Roädin, the council of High Priest Uokanat faltered in their faith. They convinced the High Priest that Roädan was a false prophet. Uokanat was taken to seek the council of Zugamid, a powerful oracle, who told him that if he killed Roädan, all followers of the anti-prophet would lose their greater powers for 100 years. With the help of his council, Uokanat assassinated Roädan in ER 1137. Immediately upon his death, the earth shook and the roof of the temple of Umorit collapsed. All clerics of the holy Umorit Church, as part of their daily prayers pledged to follow the High Priest Uokanat, lost access to channel energy and spells greater than level 3. Uokanat, realising that he was the anti-prophet, committed suicide. The following year, the great plague swept across Nalbadonas virtually unchecked, as no clerics of the holy Umorit Church were able to cure it.


All the world trembles in fear of the servants of Chaol, the imprisonned one.

The Powers

Some call them angels, some call them gods or demigods. They are worshipped by followers of the less mainstream religions, faraway peoples, and other races.

An ancient god still worshipped by dwarves. Dengrosth was a god of tools and craft that dwarves worshipped during their enslavement and also whom they credit with their liberation. A god of both creative and destructive powers, of both fire and water, Dengrosth is understood to be temperamental and passionate, but also patient and deliberate. His symbol is the hammer and chisel, often depicted breaking a chain. He is also depicted as wearing broken manacles.
