The Church of Aiyatar
While the only true gods are the seven that created the world, modern people no longer believe in these “primitive” deities. No one is sure when the Church of Aiyatar was founded – but it has been around at least twenty-five hundred years.
Aiyatar is the “Holy One” – the creator of all. The church believes that the idea of the original pantheon was a misunderstanding of the different aspects of Aiyatar. The Dark One that the Orcs obey is only a hoax used by Orcish shamans to keep the tribes united.
The church is heavily involved in politics, mainly among the human nations. They have no influence over the elven nations, who the church considers to be godless villains, and have only made a few in-roads in Dwarf culture. The church has their own small nation nestled between the other human countries called Arleddin.
