Religion & Dieties Of Warj'Arune

There are many deities active in the world of Warj'Arune, and they all play an important role. In general, the cosmology of Warj'Arune is drawn from standard 3.5 Edition D&D, with a small amount of variation. The pantheon of deities is organized in much the same fashion as the "pen & paper" game, and players familiar with that game, or who have read over Deities & Demigods, should find that in most ways what they know holds true here as well.

Warj'Arune is, in many ways, a story about a war in the Heavens spreading to Prime Material. Does everybody have a patron deity? No. Are there significant in-game impacts from having one? Yes. Both for good and ill; by having a patron deity, you have made yourself instant circles of allies and enemies. What part do followers of deities play in the the wars between nations, and the machinations of world leaders? Well, that is for you to find out…
