The Church of Pelor
For millennia, Pelor had watched over Mankind, his beloved children, guiding them and ensuring that they forever prospered. But after the Skyfall, the oracles turned silent, and Grandfather Sun seemed to have abandoned his children. So mankind turned to other gods. To Demons and Devils that called themselves angels. Humanity descended into savagery and petty kingdoms, until the Skyshards awoke, and the hero who would be known as Saint Gabriel arose out of Godsend Bay, teaching the common man the Light of Pelor, and rallying armies around him to liberate kingdoms from devils and demons. New kings were instated, given their power by the will of Pelor. During the Time of Chains, the church survived through word-of-mouth and the Knights of Saint Gabrial, who acted as a vigilante group during those times. now, forty years after the Giant Wars, the church is still very much a local commodity, and variations in teachings are common between villages and kingdoms. The Free Kingdom has begun to centralize the Church, hoping to use it as a base to legitimize their power over other kingdoms.
