The gods of Faerun are numerous and represent many aspects of daily life in the Realms. A full listing of all the gods that have ever been worshiped in Faerun is impractical, but those who are commonly (though not always openly) worshiped today include:

Amauntor, the Keeper of the Yellow Sun; Asmodeus, Supreme Master of the Nine Hells; Bane, the Black Lord; Chauntea, the Great Mother; Corellon, First of the Seldarine; Cyric, Prince of Lies; Ghaunadaur, That Which Lurks; Gruumsh, the One-Eyed God; Kelemvor, Lord of the Dead; Lolth, Queen of the Demonweb Pits; Moradin, the Soul Forger; Oghma, the Binder of What is Known; Selune, The Moonmaiden; Shar, Mistress of the Night; Silvanus, the Forest Father; Sune, the Lady of Love; Tempus, the Foehammer; and Torm, the Loyal Fury.

Deities are the beings of higher power worshiped in the lands of Faerûn. Each Character chooses his or her Deity during the character creation as a purely aesthetic feature: the deity grants a Title to his or her servant as shown in the following table. Deities can be Invoked once per hour by 11th or more level characters as taught by Aralynn the Pious and they grant various bonus and items, including experience points and astral diamonds.
