Religion

Religious worship in Khalathor may be divided along a number of lines. FIrst, there are different pantheons for the different races. Elves, dwarves, halflings, and gnomes tend to follow their traditional gods. However, members of other races have been known to pray to deities in the human pantheons, and even to become clerics or priests of human deities from time to time. The human pantheon is varied, and deities find more or less favour in different regions. Galdarin also has a distinct pantheon, and the ancient Cantonites worshiped a different pantheon as well. Through its history the Cantonite Empire gravitated towards what is now the standard human pantheon (listed below).
