                     Deities of the World of Greyhawk
            The people of Oerth worship many gods.  Only deities of
       the central Flanaess are detailed here, and of those, only
       the lesser gods (in most cases) have been detailed.  In
       general, the greater gods are far to removed from the world
       to have much to do with humanity, and while they are
       worshiped, few people hold them as patrons.
            These deities have been known to intercede directly in
       the affairs of men, but only if these affairs have a direct
       and crucial bearing upon the concerns of the deity.  Even so,
       the annals of historians list only a few such instances in
       the history of the Flanaess.
            Deities have Weightily affairs to attend to, and in
       general they can not be bothered with the trivial needs of a
       party of lowly mortals.  However, under certain circum-
       stances, a demigod and a godling might well become embroiled
       in human affairs -- as your further reading will discover.
       Because of plots of Iuz and various demons and evil elemen-
       tals, ST. Cuthbert has become actively aware of events (and
       has indirect assistance from Beory, who resists elemental
       destruction).  The enmity between Iuz and St. Cuthbert may
       yet result in direct confrontation.
            A list of the greater, lesser and active demigod deities
       of Flanaess are given hereafter.
            "ORG" is the racial origin of the god, the following is
       a list of abbreviations and there meanings.
