Religion in the Southern Region.

You should look at The Southern Religious Council page as well.

Deities are presented according to their influence across the region. In some cases there are more than one order of priests within a faith and these are represented separately, along with the leader of that Order. In the case of some faiths, there is no clear leader.

This is the new Gazetteer version. The older version is retained below, but has not been updated since June 2021,and will eventually be deleted.
