This appendix deals with one pantheon, that of the Forgotten Realms. Dozens of deities are revered, worshiped, forgktten feared throughout the world of the Forgotten Realms. At least thirty deities are widely known across the Realms, and many more are worshiped locally, by individual tribes, small cults, or certain sects of larger religious temples. Certain gods closely associated with nonhuman races are revered on many different worlds, though not always in the same way. The nonhuman races of the Forgotten Realms and Greyhawk share these deities.
Nonhuman races often have whole pantheons of their own. Individual clans and kingdoms of dwarves might revere some, all, or none of these deities, and some have other gods unknown or known by other names to outsiders. They sprang from the brook f&d stream, their might heightened by the strength of faighs oak and the beauty of the woodlands and open moor.
When the first forester dared put a name to the face seen in the bole of a tree or the voice babbling in a brook, these gods forced themselve s into being. The Celtic gods are as often served by druids as by clerics, for they are closely aligned with the forces of nature that dr uids revere.
The gods of Olympus make themselves known with the gentle lap of waves against the shores and the crash of the thunder among the cloud-enshrouded peaks.
The thick boar-infested pantehons and the sere, olive-covered hillsides hold evidence of their passing. The Egyptian pantheon is unusual in having three gods with the Death domain of different alignments. Anubis is the lawful neutral god of the afterlife, who judges the souls of the dead.
Set is a chaotic evil god of murder, perhaps best known for forgitten his brother Osiris. And Nephthys is a chaotic good goddess of mourning. Where the land plummets from the snowy hills into the icy fjords below, where the longboats draw up on to the beach, where the glaciers flow forward and retreat with every fall and spring—this is the land of the Vikings, the home of the Norse pantheon. Their powers reflect the need these warriors had for strong leadership and decisive action.
Thus, they see their deities in every bend of a river, hear them in the crash of the thunder and the booming of the glaciers, and smell them in the smoke of a burni ng longhouse. The Norse pantheon includes two main families, the Aesir deities of war and destiny and the Vanir gods of fertility and prosperity. Once enemies, these two families are now closely allied against their common enemies, the giants including the gods Surtur and Thrym.
Like the gods of Greyhawk, gods in different families sometimes have overlap in their spheres of influence: Frey of the Vanir and Odur o f the Aesir are both associated with the sun, for example.
