The Continent of Mist
While the Gods of Nowaria remain the same as those believed in throughout the world, a few key beliefs have sprung up since the Mist appeared. Namely that the Mist is a Divine Gift granted to their ancestors as a reward for resisting temptation and it has remained to protect them from the evils of Outside. The pantheon consists of a mixture of Norse and Egyptian gods and goddesses and much of the mythology is also contained in these beliefs. Most people do not choose a particular god to pay fealty to, but rather worship them all simultaneously usually with the general term: “The Gods”. Adventurers on the other hand are not quite as fervent in their beliefs. The church often seems stuffy and uncompromising to those with the desire to explore the world and they tend to ignore the more strict teachings as too bothersome.
