Lydarond has no one unified pantheon of deities. Different cultures have their own varying beliefs and their own distinct pantheons (or lack thereof).
This isn’t to say that there are hundred or thousands of deities in the world. It’s more to say that there are are merely hundred or thousands of names the deities of the world are known by. What one culture may consider the Father of the Arcane and another the Goddess of Knowledge may, in fact, be merely two aspects of a singular deity.
In the time before the Cataclysm, the deities were more directly involved in mortal affairs on Lydarond. While an encounter with one was still rare, there were enough accounts were their existence was not something that a reasonable person could dispute given the evidence at hand. Since then, however, the various deities have mostly withdrawn from the world. Their followers, however, remain behind, still preaching their ways and working towards their agendas.
