Forgotten Realms Wiki has an article about: Deity

A deity is a member of a pantheon (or other demigod or entity) that is worshipped on Faerun (and other worlds).

At character creation, one must choose a deity from a list of 105 Forgotten Realms deities. These are common deities worshipped, and do not include pantheons from remote areas like Mulhorand and Chult, or other powers like archdevils and paragons. If a character's current deity is not compatible with his current alignment or class, the deity will need to be changed to one that actually fits the character.

Deity List[]

The following deities are used in NWN2. Players may also opt to worship no deity at all (unless class requires one).

  • Descriptions and icons for each deity will be included. [1]
  • Module makers may alter the deity list in the nwn2_deities.2da file as desired. The 2da includes a deity description field.

NWN comparison[]

  • In NWN, deity selection was limited to an optional text box. It had no real functionality in the game (unless a module builder scripted its use), so the restrictions normally associated with Divine spellcasting classes were simply not used.
