The World Of Khoras - Religion

The Kindred Gods

The Kindred Gods refer to those deities whose origins are tied to a specific race. They are closely identified with that race and are worshipped primarily, but not exclusively, by it. The Kindred Gods were born out of the myths and legends of each race even as each race was finding its place in the world. As younger faiths, they are very regional and have yet to spread far into the world.
