The Pantheon of Teolin

Back on earth, we never gave much attention to faith, gods and magic. Earth does not seem to be a fruitful place to spend time on such affairs. Teolin however has many people who follow Deities, Demigods and the like. We found that these gods tend to pay much more attention to the normal folk as we might ever have anticipated...
This has been the cause of many of our initial problems. Now we know what to expect. Read the information here and compare that with what you would learn from the books you have on the subject. We can assure you there are differences.

You will find that this page only gives you a full list of all the gods that we have been able to find information on so far. There is a possibility that there are more gods that people follow on Teolin, but we do have our doubts about that. The list here will at least give you a proper overview of the pantheon that is known in the central parts of Teolin.

    Besides normal gods, a lot of people revere a special god as their preferred guardian for the last journey a person ever makes. The four gods we found to guide such journey's, Anubis, Goliath, Nephthys and Wee Jas are sometimes referred to simply as the gods of the dead.

    Before choosing your deity, you might consider having a look at the page where we tell you about the extra spell slots you get when you follow a deity. But also you should remember that there is a price for those spell slots, there is a fair chance your spells do not function the way you want them to work. This depends on your deity, your own alignment and your actions. So be careful in your actions and make sure you know about those "extra rules."
    Check out the holy magic in Teolin section and learn about your extra spell slots.

    n.b. Arcane magic users (Bards, Sorcerers en Wizards are not entitled to extra spell slots. The standard rules already assume a spell failure chance for those magic users.
