Deities in the Forgotten Realms
The gods worshiped by the regular people of Faerûn and elsewhere on Toril, its monsters, and even its lesser deities are the subject of many sourcebooks, and this section aims to provide information regarding the deities themselves, their churches, their pantheons, and their followers.

WaukeenBust

Waukeen was the goddess of commerce for much of the continent of Faerûn. She was known as the Merchant's Friend for her guiding hand in all forms of commerce (legal and otherwise); as Liberty's Maiden for her support of free and fair trade through honest bargaining based on supply and demand; and as the Golden Lady for her unabashed belief in the accumulation of wealth and, most importantly, the use of those riches to improve civilization for everyone. She was a relatively young deity, driven to accomplish her goals quickly and completely so she could move on to the next one. This impatient streak often led her to try alternate methods when "business as usual" resulted in an impasse, and manifested itself in her church which sometimes let the ends justify the means.

Her stubbornness likely led to her downfall during the Time of Troubles when she, like almost every other deity in the Faerûnian pantheon, was cast down to Toril and forced to inhabit the Prime Material Plane in avatar form. She joined up with Lliira and hatched a plan to get back to her realm in the Outlands, first by attempting to bribe Helm, who was guarding the Celestial Staircase, and then by striking a bargain with an archfiend of the Abyss, Lord Graz'zt. Unable to leave Toril in divine form, she temporarily bequeathed her divinity and portfolio to Lliira, only to be betrayed by Graz'zt and held prisoner for twelve years. During her long absence, not even Lliira knew her whereabouts and the church of Waukeen began to decline rapidly.

The Pantheons of Faerûn, circa 1374 DR
For most of the major races in the Forgotten Realms there is an entire pantheon of deities, ranging from the all-powerful greater deities to the minor and lesser deities. This arrangement of the deities reflects the early years of the Era of Upheaval, after the Time of Troubles but before the Spellplague.

The Divine Dominions of Toril, circa 1479 DR
The entire cosmology of Toril was transformed during the Spellplague, the World Tree was uprooted and the divine dominions began to float in the Astral Sea. The Fiendish planes scattered as well, and the Elemental planes collapsed into the Elemental Chaos. Some dominions suffered or were destroyed, some prospered, and others merged as the deities that called them home united against the devastating upheaval.

Missing Deities

Even the most learned scholars can only speculate on what has become of the following deities since the Spellplague. Some may have been aspects of other deities and have since been subsumed, others may have been transplanted to Abeir, others still may be in hiding and have yet to make their planned return.
