The following is a list of deities that can be used in VFRS scenarios. DMs are free to come up with their own set of deities, however.
A character's Deity gives them a small bonus attribute or ability, and in tandem with Traits, aims to add a bit of depth to character creation.
|The Lightbringer||+1 to heal amount for Clerics and Druids. Other classes will gain +1 to their end-of-day HP regeneration.||None||Other Names: Lord of the Light, King of the Gods, The Light, The One True God|
Association and Affinity: Light, Cleansing, Absolution, Repelling Darkness, Purity, Healing
|The Moon Goddess||+2 to undead damage using heal for Clerics. Non-Clerics may re-roll a failed Critical against undead foes once.||None||Other Names: Luna, Lady of the Night, The Crescent Mistress, The Dusk|
Association and Affinity: Darkness, Night, Shadow, Purging, Strength, Willpower
|Soleste||One re-roll to Criticals against dark-type creatures||None||Other Names: The Sun, Sol, Mother Gaia
Association and Affinity: Sunlight, Warmth, Nature, Growth, Love, Vigour
Sun worship is not uncommon among the inhabitants of Longbirch and among Nefaryn it is incredibly common. They have taken to calling it Soleste and see it's effects on nature and equate it to a spirit of nature. Nefaryn philosophy combines the science and spirituality of their worship and they use metaphor to explain much more complicated scientific theories. The Nefaryn see The Lightbringer and Soleste as one and the same and believe that the magic supplied by The Lightbringer is no different than the mana that flows through nature.
|Kridoth||1 free point to Str stat.||Aquirioth Only||Other Names: Lord of the Hunt|
Association and Affinity: Hunting, Strength, Skill, Lineage
|The Lich King||-1 to damage received from Undead foes.||None||Other Names: King Venion, The True King, The Fallen, The Undead Saint|
Association and Affinity: Undeath, Vengeance, Colvatchia, Loyalty
|Arglazia||Successful Critical attacks have a 33% chance of exploding with chaotic energy dealing an additional 2 damage.||None||Other Names: The Beast, The Betrayer, The Demon Beast, Dark Elder|
Association and Affinity: Evil, Zianites, Magic, Power, Inter-Dimensional Travel, Creation, Destruction
|The Cult||Able to harvest low-quality meat from defeated enemies where possible, which can be eaten to restore a tiny bit of HP.||None||Other Names: The Cult of Dominus, Salvation|
Association and Affinity: Cannibalism, Omens, Foresight, High-King Dominus, Hidden Truth
A mass hallucination known as The Vision was witnessed by the fabled First Four after they cannibalised the fifth member of their group. It rightly showed to them that Venion was in cahoots with Arglazia and his subsequent downfall and the rise of Dominus to the seat of High-King. The group took it as a prophecy and has worked tirelessly ever since, ever growing in number, to create the world that they envisioned. They became what is now known as The Cult of Dominus, or simply The Cult, and have amassed a very secretive and dangerous following of zealots, who have very little concern for who is harmed in pursuit of their goal.
|Other||Adds an Idol Necklace to starting inventory (gives +1 to Cha while worn).||None||A minor deity of the player's own imagining. They may even believe in all of the gods equally.|
|No Deity||1 free point to Int stat.||None||A character who has no strong feelings towards any of the gods, or denies their existence. Some scholars argue that mana creates gods and not the other way around...|
