Heortling Religeons

 

 

The two primal dieties worshipped by the Heortlings are Orlanth (for men) and Ernalda (for women). Both of these dieties have a number of different aspects that are worskipped as different subcults. The main subcults are given below, but there are a number of others that are worshipped throughout Dragon Pass. The worship of Orlanth was officially banned during the Lunar occupation and many Orlanthi officially worshipped other compatible dieties in public, whilst perhaps still honouring Orlanth in private. There are also a number of minor dieties (not included here) that are worshipped in the region including Asrelia (Harvest, Plenty), Babeestor Gor (Avenging Goddess), Barntar (The Plowman), Brastalos (Calm Winds), Donandor (Cosmic Music), Engizi the Skyriver Titan (God of the River), Eurmal (the Trickster), Gustbran Bonesmith (the Red Smith), Kero Fin (Mother of Mountains), Maran Gor (The Earthshaker), Minlister (Ale and Brewing), Nandan (The Housekeeper), Pelaskos (Sea Fishing God), Redalda (Horse Goddess), Rigsdal (the Night Watchman), Sorana Tor (Death and Sacrifice), and Valind (Winter).
