Gods and Goddesses In The Adarian Campaign

What follows is a list of the Higher Powers of the Adarian World. The first twenty are the most commonly worshipped by "civilizated" races, although some are vastly more popular with some races than others. Generally each race or culture worships the Gods and Goddess it feels most comfortable with, but each race and/or culture worships their chosen in their own way and some of the bloodest "Holy Wars" are against different peoples that worship the same God(s). What the Gods think about this has never been addressed, but for the most part, they remain aloof and seldom try to stop the carnage, but perhaps it should be noted that usually such "Holy Wars" are fought by the more militant worshipers of "Battle Gods." Perhaps it is some sort of divine fitness test...

The Court of Chaos

Besides the above Gods, there is another group of Higher Powers who are the God's sworn enemies, those beings known as being members of the Court of Chaos. The Lords and Ladies of Chaos are as powerful individually as the Gods, but they do not seek worshippers as such (although there are individuals and groups that do worship Chaos). It is believed by many that in the distant past, the Gods were servants in the Court of Chaos and they revolted and created the intelligent races to aid them in their war against the Court of Chaos, such tales claim that devils and demons were created by the Lords of Chaos to weaken and destroy the followers of the Gods. While no one is certain, it is a widely held belief that the Gods and the Lords of Chaos have a truce and are regrouping, preparing to resume the struggles when one side or the other has gained an the meanwhile their followers wage war upon one another and the struggle contines by proxy...
