Many different gods are worshipped in Wraeclast. This page is a list of all the different deities mentioned in the game, sorted by culture, as well as an explanation on the nature of godhood itself.

Ascension to godhood

In a time before the creation of the Beast by Sin, any human had the capability of ascending to godhood. Driven by ambition, abetted by the "adoration of their people", a mortal could rise to prominence and transcend, casting away their mortality to become an immortal god.[1]

According to Sin, becoming a god often comes at the cost of one's own humanity.

Oriathan gods
