Pantheon

The world of Toril is full of powerful beings and their servants. Competing sects of the same deity might fight deadly wars against each other, or could come together to work mighty rituals.

The Faerûnian pantheon is dominated by the greater gods, masters of their own domains and allied with or served by ranks of other gods, exarchs (divine beings of extraordinary power), and other extraplanar servitors. Much like their mortal worshipers, the gods seek and break alliances, fight, love, hate, and even kill, absorb, or resurrect each other.

The gods take an active interest in the affairs of Toril, exerting pressures both subtle and overt primarily through the actions of their mortal servants. Priests in thousands of different sects gain access to divine magic in exchange for their investiture in their church. They are the primary instruments of a church’s mission in the world, and the only manifestation of divine power that the average mortal ever encounters.
