Pantheon Primer ✧ Forgotten Realms 5e

Suggested Price $1.99

This is a primer supplement for the deity lore pamphlet series being produced by the author, with information explaining terms used in the series as well as the nature of the status quo maintained between the divine pantheons of Toril in the Forgotten Realms setting.

A basic world map of Toril is included in this pamphlet, as well as a world map showing the affected regions under the authority of the different pantheons of Toril.

The information contained in this document is meant to illuminate an overview perspective of the gods and their place in the Forgotten Realms setting.

This document uses a combination of researched canon compiled across multiple editions of Dungeons & Dragons as well as non-canon gap fillers, bringing the lore up to date with the current era after the Second Sundering.

Changes in v1.1:

Added paragraph to Gods entry in Important Terms and Facts section.

Tiers of divine power and Chosen are addressed.

Added sentence to Communion in Important Terms and Facts section after watching Dragon Talk and learning about the current state of the Dead Three while trying to match it with Mystra’s physical interaction with wine in the novel Spellstorm. “After the Second Sundering, an edict from the overgod Ao has restricted the gods from directly interacting with the mortal realms of Realmspace in any form other than mortal avatars unless summoned by their faithful.”

Added Other Pantheons section and Misc. Powers section.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
