The following is an overview of the principle gods of Plemar. Many more exist in the form of local deities or ancestors but they have little affect on the world at large.
Note: While the art on the rest of the site is mine, most of the symbols used for the gods are borrowed from elsewhere. Many come from Wizards of the Coast products, while others are just picked off of Google. The sole exceptions are the symbols for Eiliestree and Lady Sol, which I drew and colored; I also drew and colored Vecna's but the symbol wasn't my design.

The God of Roads, the Protector of Drifters, Fharlanghn is a god who has seen many things; the dust of many worlds has settled on his cloak.

Corellon was he creator of all elves, he is also the ancient enemy of Grumish, whose eye he poked out, and all orcs. Corellon urges his followers to seek greatness and use all means possible to destroy the orcs. He promise that once the orcs are destroyed the world will return to the idyllic state in which it existed at the beginning of time.
Note: Corellon Larethian had not been heard from since most of the solar elves defected to Pelor several thousand years ago. His remaining clerics receive spells only infrequently and sometimes with drastic consequences. It is a matter of much discussion amongst scholars whether Corellon Larethian has abandoned his people, been imprisoned by Grumish, or is in fact dead.

Vecna- Maimed Lord, Whispered One, Keeper of Secrets
Art work and story line are copy write to me, most of the characeters belong to my players and most of the random rules information/spells comes from the Dungeons and Dragons core rule books. This is after all an illustrated campaign.
Also, now that the second phase of the comic has begun I must include a shout-out to Dungeon and Dragon Adventures, whose mask campaign setting lies at the heart of the story from here on out. Check them out.
