Religion

The story of the Elven gods, when told by the present day elves, follows many forms, and reflects much of their current culture, but each follows a similar theme. Some say the disciples were cast out, disgraced by the gods. Others say those that left were the last survivors of a dark curse.

Whatever the story, the few truths remained through the ages, namely those of the 6 disciples:  Mystra, Lathander, Kelemvor, Silvanus, Selune, and Tempus.

Those who follow the tenants of the 6 disciples are said to be part of ‘The Path’. For a time, all elves followed some version of the path. However, after the elven schism during the era of a The Hundred wars and the formation of the Kelta and Sciettish, devotees of the path fell precipitously among the Kelta. In general, the Kelta viewed the disciples as the prime mover of internationalism among the strain of elves and were considered a threat to the soverignty of their people. Shortly after the formation of the Confederacy, many shrines and priests of the Path were driven out or forced to renounce their work, and many did, even willingly. In their place, the Kelta shifted to a cult worship of the natural forces, and elevated the druids and shamans of their tribes to fill the spiritual needs of their people.

The Sciettish, in contrast, retained their faith in the disciples and the Path, and arguably, became more fervent in their beliefs for a time. While no were near as zealous in their proclamations as the humans or dragonborn, the Sciettish quietly went about cementing the histories of their traditions. While the sciettish state did not directly act for or against the religion, many of the society’s elites devoted many years to the collection, organization, and discussion on the various stories of the Path, and helped codify the religion into a uniform belief system. The sciettish view their religion as mostly a private thing, not for other races, and as much a cultural heritage and moral authority as they do a ritual of practice in seeking favor from the divine agents.
