The following deities are worshiped in Merisyl. These gods and goddesses are usually venerated as wise and powerful, but remote and uninvolved. The pantheon serves as a conduit for divine power, but the deities themselves are largely unmotivated to directly influence events on Merisyl. They take the energy their devotees expend in worship and turn it to their advantage as they scheme for influence and control over the Draconic Plane.
The historians of the longer-lived races contend that the pantheon itself is relatively new; perhaps only thousands of years old. The most ancient ruins are devoid of any references to the pantheon as it exists today, and worship of the current pantheon may have resulted in the most powerful residents of the Draconic plane unintentionally filling a void left by the Divine power responsible for the creation of Merisyl.
The Hopeful Dawn, Night's Despair, The Silver Lord of Love, The Dark Lord of Wrath
Holy Symbol: As befits a god of such contradictions, Endrell’s holy symbol is elaborate. A silver “sun” representing hope is the background. This is slashed through the center horizontally by a black crescent moon with the points facing downward representing despair. A rose representing love sits above the crescent, while a dagger representing hate sits below.
