Religion

Religion on the Maw is an interesting situation.

Sol, the God-King is an actual god. Yet he still allows the worship of some of the other deities that do not have a physical presence on the island. However, he is the primary deity of the island due to how he had saved and protected the original people of the maw from the first plague.

His domains are, Light, Healing, Order, Protection, Good, and Law.
His symbol is the Sun, and his weapon is a Sword.

Sol generally sticks to his temple and palace at the top of the spire on the edge of the Maw. He does make appearances at certain celebrations and other important events, but usually from a distance with the common folk. Generally only high ranking military officials, religious officials, and nobles get to actually meet him.
