Pelor

Pelor is a beneficent creator, a master healer, and a supporter to those in need. He is the most commonly worshiped deity among ordinary humans, so his priests and clerics are welcomed wherever they go. Pelor actively opposes all evil deities and his followers avoid even neutral deities with teachings counter to his.

 

Pelor is an ally to good-aligned, nonhuman deities such as Corellon Larethian and Moradin. He is friendly to all those with agricultural or solar aspects. He diametrically opposes Tharizdun, Naphora and Vecna.

 

Divine Characteristics

Disciples

Pelor's clergy heal the sick, bless crops, help the needy, and destroy evil and the undead. They are caring and nurturing, with backbones of steel. The Pelorian priesthood attracts many naive youths to his service, but training is rigorous enough to send many of them back to their farms. Pelor's elite priests are called Radiant Servants.

 

Grihymm Phrahdrandon of The Party is a paladin of Pelor.

Holy Books & Codes

The Light of Pelor is the most common Pelorian holy book, beginning with Pelor’s creation of the sun and his instruction of the first mortals. It details how--in a time of great evil and darkness--Pelor shown his light on the Rock of Pelor and gave his message to Marius. It also tells of Pelor’s attempts to win back those who have strayed from his light.

 

The book is often enchanted to glow with a soft solar radiance when it’s closed, and some versions are gilded.

 

Tenets of Faith

Justice and freedom are brought about through charity, modesty, perseverance, and self-sacrifice. Pelor’s priests teach that the truly strong don’t need to prove their power.

 

Pelorians strive to perform so many good acts that evil has no room to exist. They work for peace, though they will fight if necessary. Pelor is wrathful against the forces of evil, and is thoroughly opposed to the undead. However, Pelor urges his followers to remember that excessive attention to things of evil can blind one to the truly important things. He asserts that compassion and goodness must be emphasized above all.

 

Pelorian dogma has it that the energy and power of life originates in the sun.
