Religion and the Gods are not a question of faith on the continent of Arudien. It is clear for everyone that the gods exist. Their presence can be felt and seen daily. While the gods rarely involve themselves in mortal affairs, they bestow their powers unto a select few who act upon their behalf.
The story of the gods begins when they brought order to the world and banished the raging chaos, thus opening the way for the mortal folk to settle the world. The gods responsible for this are known as the High Council and are known throughout the world.
