Over the course of mortal history, the gods have taken many forms and been called many names. Each culture has received divine revelations in different forms and interpreted the gods in their own ways. But throughout all of these widely varying depictions, there are two unifying chords that tie all these disparate visions together:
Most of the people in Brightshore worship a pantheon of four deities: Olteus, Ava, Menran, and Unre. This tradition is not native to this continent; the settlers brought these beliefs from their homelands.
The four deities maintain a distant relationship with the mortal world. The only “proof” of their existence are the spells bestowed upon their clerics, and even then there are conflicting theories as to precisely how and from where those powers are granted.
Olteus is the god of Water, Spring, Growth, and Fertility.
Ava is the goddess of Fire, Summer, Destruction, and Inspiration.
Menran is the god of Wind, Autumn, Chaos, and Luck.
Unre is the Goddess of Earth, Winter, Law, and Endurance.
