Shadow of the Firstborn
Many of the Younger Gods have no followers at all, although they are always out to recruit some. With so much variation between their followers, all of the Younger Gods made their new followers swear to respect the domains of other churches. There is still plenty of rivalry, but crusades and holy wars have always been off limits. Individual churches still build their own temples, but all churches contribute members to The Circle, the main religious body in Rohir. The Circle is completely neutral in the great war, and administers churches on both sides. They are based in Gilaven on the Nentyr River.
