Lists of Deities

Across Eastdæl there is one major religion known as æfæst, there are several sects all currently vying for popularity. Most generally agree that there are 16 gods and they are split into two groups: The Cræftas and Culpan. The Cræftas, in most sects, are believed to be the embodiment of goodness and virtue while the Culpan are evil personified, born to tempt mortals away from the ‘Path’. Since the inception of magic in the world, many believe the gods have taken a more active role in the world, some theorising that the divide between the mortal and divine realms has weakened. The rise of clerics confirms this.
