Colonization of Verath
The Church is arguably the largest governing body on Elstor. It extends across all national boundaries except into the Minotaur kingdom. The Minotaur have their own religion, which the Church denounces as heretical though it allows the Minotaur to follow it, so long as they do not try to convert others to it. All other races in Elstor have local churches and cathedrals, though the amounts vary widely. The Elves have the most, while the Dwarves have the least. As a result, most of the high-up members of the Church are Elves. Also, Godshome is closest to the Elf kingdom, though it is in effect its own country.
The Church preaches the worship of 3 Major Gods: Kord, Pelor, and Avandra. These are the brother gods of Strength, Justice and Mercy, respectively. The Church also preaches the worship of several minor gods, with dominion of various aspects of the world, such as Magic, Civilization, and the Ocean. The Church also respects the dominion of gods and goddesses such as the Raven Queen, and Vecna, though it does not build temples to them and often represses the worship of evil gods and goddesses.
