Writ of Justice Eightfold
gods and religion
- There is a bitter hatred between Orcus and Yeenoghu over Doresain. In the annals of history, Doresain was a vassal of Orcus, until Yeenoghu wrested control of the White Kingdom away from the demon lord. The King of Ghouls served Yeenoghu loyally for generations untold and grew in power and stature as his patron empowered both his own gnollish kin and The Ghoul King’s ever-hungering servants. Then, almost within living memory of the oldest lorekeepers, Orcus swept through the White Kingdom, driving out every last vestige of Yeenoghu’s power and banishing him from his former stronghold.
- A small mystery cult exists in different sites around the Empire, revering a little-known deity named Baeroth. Most scholars and faithful consider Baeroth to be a brother, possibly a twin, to Kord but who was largely forgotten by the world because he did not battle in the Dawn War. Some say that at the moment of his inception he was whisked away to the end of time where he waits for his moment to emerge as a champion in the war at the opposite end of creation. As Kord exemplifies might, strength, and prowess, so Baeroth is associated with vitality and might of the spirit.
- A well-beloved goddess who is acknowledged by almost everyone of any faith is Shang. She is the mistress of life undiluted, and folktales say that flowers blossom in her footsteps, beasts become docile in her presence, and her laughter gives the first breaths to newborn infants. She has no dedicated temples of her own, but small shrines can be found in most other temples to good deities, in many homes, and at farms, midwifing homes, apothecaries, and other places where life and health are held in high regard.
