On Deities

Most major Forgotten Realms deities have their equivalents in Abred, so your knowledge of FR may come in handy. The Gods and Goddesses in Abred are drawn primarily from Celtic Mythology and the names of these with their equivalents appear below.

This list is as complete as I can really imagine in most respects. I know a lot more about most of these deities than is listed here, and of course, the correlation between Abred and FR is not always 100%, but this should help people know what the people of Abred call their gods, and the FR equivalents (or near equivalence).

I realize some FR deities are not represented here, but barring some possible small oversights of lesser powers, that is intentional for one of two reasons. 1) The missing god does not fit with the setting, and as such has no equivalent, and/or 2) The god is so similar to another FR god in terms of abilites/ domains that I did not feel it necessary to include them.
