Above and Below the World
Bhaal: The Lord of Murder thrives in the minds of the people of Eureïos due to the many curses that incorporate his name. People will often wish their brutal lords and taskmasters a visit from Bhaal, unwittingly giving credence to the power of the god. Outside of evil cults and assassins, Bhaal has a great deal of worshipers, for, it is said, that all pay homage to Bhaal in the moment of their death.
Kossuth: A god of sages and wise-men. People who take up the faith of the flame god usually do so as a sort of moral cleansing. They turn away from the physical trapping of earthly pleasure and congregate in monasteries; meditating on the nature of consumption and rebirth. Young people often turn to the faith of Kossuth as a rejection of contemporary society but conversions of these types seem never to last. Over half of Kossuth’s worshipers were not born into the faith and about a third of his worshipers will leave it some point in their lives.
Lathander: The default human deity who birthed humanity from his very blood, the rays of the sun. This is contested by humans who have patrons other than Lathander, and this creation myth is not endorsed by the majority of non-human religions. It may be that this myth was created at some point in history by the clergy of the Morning Lord but rumors of these sort do nothing to diminish his legitimacy as a god of good, worshiped also by non-humans. Large cities have towering stained glass cathedrals devoted to the sky-father at their center, smaller hamlets have squat buildings devoted to him in their town center that are often used as a meeting places and town halls.
