Gods

The world of Golarion has many gods and divine servants. Here are just a few that will come up during the course of the campaign.

Iomedae

Iomedae (pronounced ahy-OH-meh-day) is the goddess of righteous valor, justice, and honor. Having served as Aroden’s herald, she inherited many of the Last Azlanti’s followers upon his death, and continues to espouse the ideas of honor and righteousness in the defense of good and the battle against evil.

Ishar

Ishar is a Chaotic Neutral god who delights in thwarting Gods of Death from collecting their rightful due. She has no priesthood and no temples, and the only prayers she listens to are those from the lips of desperate and stubborn men who are just not willing to go quietly into the night.

The Keeper of Secrets

The Celestial is a being that is visible as a sparkling of lights at dawn and dusk, just above the horizon to the north. Known to most at the Keeper of Secrets, it is a being that is worshipped by none. It is a being that deals in truths for those who acknowledge it, and is willing to swap the hidden and the unknown in exchange for more information. It is considered somewhat taboo to trade secrets with this being, and very few people know the methods of contacting it. It is neither a good nor an evil creature, instead; it is concerned solely with fate, manipulating and offering secrets to determine a future only it knows.

Nehalenna – Goddess of the North Sea

Nehalenna protects the Northern Seas, her and her followers keeping it safe from interlopers and intruders. A fickle goddess, her moods changing randomly, she has been known to bless and save ship fulls of sailors from a wreckage, while condemning others to die in a squall.

Pharasma

“The Lady of Graves”, Pharasma, is the goddess who shepherds Golarion’s recently-departed souls to their final reward. Upon death, souls migrate to Pharasma’s Boneyard in the Outer Sphere, which sits atop an impossibly tall spire that pierces the Astral Plane. Pharasma makes no decision on whether a death is just or not; she views all with a cold and uncaring attitude, and decides on which of the Outer Planes a soul will spend eternity. Pharasma is also the goddess of birth and prophecy: from the moment a creature is born, she sees what its ultimate fate will be, but reserves final judgement until that soul finally stands before her. As the goddess of death and rebirth, she abhors the undead and considers them a perversion.

Var’jo, Tyrant of Shadows

Var’jo is the God of shadow, and deceit. He has no temples, or followers, preferring to avoid drawing any attention to himself or his vessels.

He searches the world of man, seeking suitable vessels, beings versed in stealth and trickery, before subtly pulling strings to bring them forcibly into the fold. Granting them his powers over shadows, but opening them to his influence and control.
