Lore of the Elders (Resources, References, Etc)
"So you have come to hear a tale of our people. Of the way things were before the good folk vanished and the firbolg were driven underground." His tone made the question a statement.
"Very well," he said, after pausing to watch the crackle and spark of the flames in the Great Hearth fire, "But be forewarned: though this tale tells of faeries and dragons and many things unknown to us today, it is no child's tale to fascinate, no swaddling's story to bring joy to the young and faint of heart. This is faerie tale, but it is no thing for a child's ears..."
Here you will find lore, maps, world information and other resources as I make them available (and as they are created).

Map of Haven's Hold
1: Pallisade Gate
2: Central Hearth Fire
3: Chieftan's Quarters and Council Room
5: Clan Huts
PLEASE NOTE: This small collection of thatch roofed, daub and wattle houses really is the center of Haven's hold. Ancillary structures do, naturally, exist, but the village center shown in this map really is the hub of life for residents of Haven's Hold.

This list is as complete as I can really imagine in most respects. I know a lot more about most of these deities than is listed here, and of course, the correlation between Abred and FR is not always 100%, but this should help people know what the people of Abred call their gods, and the FR equivalents (or near equivalence).
Please feel free to ad lib and don't be intimidated if you do not know much about these deities. Much lore has been lost to time, and any person's interpretation of the divine is as valid as another's. Have fun and get creative!
I realize some FR deities are not represented here, but barring some possible small oversights of lesser powers, that is intentional for one of two reasons. 1) The missing god does not fit with the setting, and as such has no equivalent, and/or 2) The god is so similar to another FR god in terms of abilites/ domains that I did not feel it necessary to include them.
