Laranna's GemStone III Lair

Lesser Gods, Spirits
and other Higher Beings

 

Though our society predominantly worships the Greater Gods or Arkati, there are those who worship the Lesser Gods, Spirits and other Higher Powers that also invest themselves into our world. Occasionally you may run across a shrine, altar or temple that seems unfamiliar to you - you may ask around in an attempt to find out who the altar is dedicated to, or better yet, who that god is. Many times the holy place is dedicated to a local or Lesser god, one that isn't mentioned in everyday life, though whom certainly affects it and is worth learning about.

Here, I've attempted to put forth what I know about some Lesser Gods, beings and powers whose pantheon or alignment is unknown to me. My search for other deities is continual, and this area will reflect as such.

The size of a human female, the statue of Aeia graces the center of the pool with both beauty and substance. Beauty of form, line and texture, lovingly crafted by the gifted hands of a master whose art is bringing life to cold stone. Substance being the pure water that bubbles up from beneath her, filling the pool and giving life to the surrounding garden.

A small niche has been carved into the old stone wall, and is surrounded by dried flowers and small folded notes. A young woman kneels before the wall, a wedding bouquet in one hand, her other hand pressing against the wall so hard that her fingertips have whitened
