Many of the beasts who grow ancient, huge, and intelligent are worshipped as gods. Some Beasts pursue this praise, others have it thrust upon them, and others gain such a reputation from the infamy of their destruction.
In the southwest, many Beast Gods are part of a formal pantheon consisting of both “good” and “evil” Beasts. In the northern kingdoms and realms some of those same Gods are remembered, if not worshipped, or are merely aspects of a more modern deity. The Divine Empire and its holy pantheon consider worship of Beasts to be blasphemous.
