The Road To The Crimson Throne
Religion in Korvosa
There are multiple religions worshiped in Korvosa. As great in it’s ethnic diversity as it is in it’s cultural diversity, Korvosan’s fall under a multitude of beliefs. The people are fickle, blaming and seeking aid from the gods as their moods swing.
Generally The Varisians worship Desna and The Shoanti Gorum (though you will find no official place of worship for Gorum within the city) There is a strong group of Irori worshipers among House Arkona in Old Korvosa. The Elven Enclave In South Shore generally keeps to the worship of Calistria as the Dwarven Enclave in Old Korvosa worships Torag.
Their is no official Religion as Eodred Arabasti II is not a religious man, but if he followed the tenets of any faith it would be of Abadar. He and Archbanker Tuttle had a very strong working relation. However, Since Queen Ileosa’s arrival has heralded a resurgence in the beliefs forged in Cheliax, The worship of Asmodeus has become more prominent as it was of old.
This being said, the commonfolk often divide their attention to any number of diety’s in accordance with what is going on at the moment, and it falls to the clergy to spread the word and keep money flowing into their coffers from donations and tithes.
