Legend of the pantheons of Raesokera[edit]

Long ago, a curious god named Atun created a world and filled it with life from realms across all of creation. He began with the continent of Raesokera, filling it with lush flora and beautiful fauna. He added more and more, morphing the landscape into a paradise of every ecology from hot sandy deserts to lush tropical rainforests and freezing tundras. He had created a masterpiece of life in perfect balance.

With the blessing and assistance of Bahamut, Atun introduced dragons to Raesokera to imbue the living world with magic. Dragonkind flourished and imbued the world with the Weave. The balance of life in the weave was such that Raesokera became a font of magical power. This brought the attention of many dieties, both benevolent and malignant. Among the first was the dragon goddess Tiamat who had a particular hatred for Bahamut and did everything in her power to spite him. She convinced Nethria, goddess of chaos and trickery, to introduce chaos to the balance. Nethria, in the guise of Mystra, provided one-way portals to men, dwarves, elves, gnomes, orcs, and more. They migrated to the new world. They developed new settlements and spread across the new world overflowing with resources both mundane and magical. Except for the various elven races, these humanoids consumed these natural resources with reckless abandon.

Atun became angry with the hedonistic and violent ways of the humanoids not of Raesokera. In his fury, he unleashed a virulent arcane plague that spread across the continent to destroy all mankind. All the new races created magical sanctuaries, hiding away from the incurable plague and the rest of the world. Atun was content letting them hide in their closed off sanctuaries while he rebalanced the world.

However, there was an unintended side effect of the magical disease on the wild beasts of Raesokera. The plague spread to every animal on the continent. Many died and some went extinct, but while the races hid in quarantined mountain citadels or escaped to the sea for many generations, the surviving beasts began to change. Their natural abilities and instincts evolved rapidly with each new generation. In only a dozen generations, many beasts stood bipedal like men. Within a century, dozens of new intelligent and sentient races were born. These new races began to form tribal societies. In order to keep them from destroying each other, Atun chose a strong champion or wise leader from each race. These champions were gifted with immortality and taught to lead their own races to prevent catastrophe. The new pantheon of Raesokera led the bestial races into an era of prosperity and peace.

This era of peace was ended when Rhaige, the immortal wolverine came under the influence of Bhaal. Rhaige was gifted a portion of Bhaal's power and sent to destroy the ancient sanctuary wards protecting the hidden races of men. He massacred men, dwarves, and elves in Shahalla by the thousands, making the first contact between beasts and men one of brutality and slaughter. Many of the other gods of the Forgotten realms chose champions among the immortal beasts to gift them with power as well in order to halt the violence of Rhaige.

Forgotten Realms Pantheon[edit]

For all races in Raesokera, the standard 5th edition pantheon is worshiped as normal since religious philosophies and principles are passed down from the humanoid races. See the Players Handbook pg 293 for more information.
