Avandra The goddess of change, Avandra delights in freedom, trade, travel, adventure, and the frontier.

Bahamut The Platinum Dragon, god of justice, protection, nobility, and honor.

Corellon The elven god of spring, beauty, arcane magic, and the arts.

The Children of Io

The dragonborn of Arkhosia believe they were created by Io, the great dragon god who created the world before he was slain through treachery during the Dawn War at the beginning of history. At the instant of his death, the two great deities, Bahamut and Tiamat, were born.

Deities

Bahamut God of good dragons, justice, protection, nobility, and honor.

The Church of Tera

The worship of Tera is a religion that only recently began to make its way to the region from the distant west. Believers claim that Tera is the only god, and all others are false gods. Clerics of Tera choose to represent either her Creator or Destroyer aspect.

The Divine Clan
