"Let me know if there are any more gaps that you would like your character to be able to portray in their worship."

Well okay. A character of mine I think would fit better into the world?s setup while a cleric has a personality that leans his worship to gods that are of sacrifice, humility and general kindness, and was heavily not combat motivated.

As a FR char though he worshipped the gods in a general way instead of being a priest of any mythos.

(I really don't have any chars I used or char ideas that were ever strongly combat motivated.)

BTW does this world consider clerics not priests of a specific mythos? By that I mean are there general clerics giving praise to simply the gods or does it require the worship on a specific god?

Patience young padawan. Orl does work for a living, AND he goes to school too. Give him time he will answer when he finds the info, the game world is 10 years old or susuch he may have to look through 10 years worth of notes.

However if i had to guess there are no such clerics/priest that worship all the gods or an overgod such as Ao in FR, just a guess tho.

From above
Avlis Creation Myth

In the beginning, there was chaos?? Reigning over that chaos was a boundless Supreme Being with no name and no form. The crystal sphere containing this chaos was called ?Avlis?, and for untold millennia the Supreme Being of Avlis wandered through the chaos without any purpose or aim. At one point, no one knows exactly when, the Supreme of the crystal sphere grew weary of the chaos and decided to restore order in Avlis once again. So, the swirling chaos was gathered up and the stars where formed along with the planets, and the world itself. The Supreme saw that this work was done well, and the decision was made to keep the world in existence.
Having completed that task, the Supreme populated the world with primitive gods. These were all peaceful and orderly gods that had limited control over a certain natural formations, such as ponds or groves. Each of them was perfect in every detail, and the Supreme was happy with the way they would attend to their areas while worshipping him. To honor his perfect creation, the Supreme named the world after the crystal sphere in which it was cradled...Avlis.


Worship of this Supreme being SHOULD be posible. But worshiper would be few and far between.

You can worship the Supreme, but you would be the first to do so. The Supreme is the name of the over deity that created Avlis, but he really doesn't need any worshippers. This is fine however. You can develop this as part of your character. We are already taking steps to incorporate your worship. So just keep doing what you are doing and follow the DMs' lead.

I would think that worshipers would tend towards peace and order.

The Supreme is beyond all that. You cannot discuss anything about what the Supreme does or believes because it's just too far "out there". The few individuals who for some reason decide to worship the Supreme must decide on their own what values or alignments to hold to.

Do the notes include many village names. I could give Narin's background down on the background subject line but I'm not sure what to call his homevillage and which section of avlis it would be located.

He mentioned it is north of M'check. It has a fishing based economy. Also it has multiple shrines with mostly human people living inside. It shouldn't be to far from a larger city that would have some docks he could take a boat from.

I guess I'm more looking for the area it is in and a name for a larger city it could be a few days away from from sense the village would be one so small the people within would all know each other.
