DnD Pantheons Makai

D&D – Five Spheres of Mystara

Pantheons – Makai

Makai Pantheon Overview

Pantheons are one of the options players can use to get access to class features, as well as secret crafts and elemental aspects.

Also Known as the Islander Pantheon or Ocean Path.

  • Locations: Ierendi, Minrothad
  • Keywords Adventure, Boldness, Courage, Defiance, Epic Deeds, Explorers, Freedom, Civilisation (Equality), Science (Astronomy, Engineering)

Practiced mainly in the Ierendi region, and in areas where you can find the Makai, this is sometimes referred to as the “Ocean Path”. While it is a racial pantheon, they happily include members of any race or background who are willing to follow their faith.

The Ocean Path – Elendaen

The philosophy expresses the belief that the ocean is the cradle of life; it encourages her followers never to abuse the sea and its resources.​

This religion is mostly concerned with: Adventure, Beauty, Cleverness, Elves, Hunting, Liberty, Oceans, Protection and Travel. This is based on the immortal pantheons patronage which also covers the rest as aspects of the belief structure. I have highlighted anything shared between at least two of the immortal patrons.

I had organically planned a random table for using with NPC priest of the religion, but it became to difficult to maintain when making changes to the pantheon. For a random domain, roll % twice, first to see rarity of domain and second to see which domain in selected.

01-47% – Common

48-98% – Uncommon

99-00% Rare
