Red Hand Rising
Religions, Gods, and Demons
Deities of Falidar have undergone rapid change over the past ages. The Native Pantheon saw three of its members nearly destroyed, followed by the invasion of the Outsider Deities. The Outsiders, demons and angels alike, were forced to quickly adjust to their sudden ascension to godhood.
After the Wars of the First Gods, the native gods split into three factions:
Ulizor, the path of Strength. Holds personal interest first, lauds strength and survival.
Aoshi (or Faith in Unity). Prime tenets are Nobility, Valor, and Unity.
Hethos, Balance. Finding the right way in life, between self and others.
The Outsider Gods fall into two other categories:
The Angels: Creed of Radiance
The Demons, or Abyssian, or Hellician.
Native Gods of Falidar: There are thirteen Gods who are naturally associated with the land of Falidar. (Native, in contrast to the Outsider Deities).
Drukul – King-in-Exile of the Gods, who favors strength of arms. Master Deity of Ulizor, path of Strength
Salaiel – The Queen of the Gods. Prime Deity of Aoshi, faith in unity.

The Outsider Gods
During the Fall of Daenlorn’s Council, many outsiders from the upper and lower planes were summoned. Seven Angels and a mix of Demons and Devils were changed by some series of events of the Fall. The group of Outsiders were bound to their like kind, and seemed to Ascend to Godhood – although it seems only the collected seven together are a match for the power of a God.
