Religion and Faith

The people of this world predominantly worship the gods and goddesses of the Nordic pantheon. While there are other gods, goddesses, and deities which have worshippers and cults, they are not part of any consistent pantheon and are simply considered Outsiders.

Outsiders

All deities which do not belong to the Nordic pantheon are considered Outsiders. These deities are not necessarily associated with any particular pantheon or religion, and are only grouped together to the extent that they are not members of the Nordic pantheon.

The Beast Below

There is a cult which worships a mythical deity known as the Beast Below. According to rumours and half-forgotten truths, the Beast Below slumbers deep beneath the earth, and has powers far greater than any of the gods in the Nordic Pantheon. It is said that when the Beast Below awakens and returns to the surface, he will reward his followers with untold riches and eternal life. In recent years, the Cult of the Beast Below has seen an increase in popularity among the wealthy nobility.
