Used in the nation of Ethengar and by the Humans who come from their and still cling to their heritage.

Note: This is considered an unbalanced Pantheon due to it only having Immortals from Energy, Matter and Thought and due to that it struggles with the concepts of Time and Entropy as important to the religion.

This religion is mostly concerned with: Knowledge, Tactics and War. 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.

Patrons – Arts (1), Balance (1), Battle (1), Birth (1), Bravery (1), Centaurs (1), Chaos (1), Conquest (1), Creation (1), Cruelty (1), Earth (1), Energy (1), Farmers (1), Fertility (1), Fire (1), Fury in Battle (1), Goblins (1), Healing (1), Heroism (1), Honour (1), Jokes (1), Knowledge (2), Life (1), Light (1), Nature (1), Orcs (1), Power (1), Predators (1), Prosperity (1), Protection (1), Shepherds (1), Stealth (1), the Sun (1), Tactics (2), War (4), Warriors (1), Werewolves (1), Wisdom (1), Wolves (1)
