(Credit goes to Fordwell for the original creation and writing of this.)

Found in an old tome, sealed with wax in an iron chest in the ruins of Viosk, (a small city state formed long after the collapse of Ermor):

The Pantheon of Ermori:

The Pantheon of the Ermori was worshipped fervently by the citizens of the long lost kingdom of Ermor. These days small sects still preserve the worship of these gods and their values.

Gods and Goddesses:

Jermak - God of Manifestation, masculinity, and king of the Gods. He is often shown as a man clad in white fire wielding a sword of obsidian. Stories tell of his short temper and lust for all pleasures, tempered by a decisive and wise mind. The Emperors of Ermor were believed to be descended from him, when he took a mortal woman as his bride.

Leith - Queen of the Gods, Goddess of Women, of creation and birth. She is often shown dressed in the night sky, her skin black as coal, holding a chalice. She is known as the dark mistress for she is said to protect the secrets of all woman from the ever prying eyes of men.

Olmier - Known as the dark whisper, the brother of Jermak, and the God of Death. It was believed by the people of Ermor that only those close to death could see him, clad in a robe of blood with pale sickly skin, watching them from afar, face always one of sadness.

Hethra - Goddess of Harvests, and known as the great huntress. Farmers sang to this Goddess to ensure a plentiful growing season and to guide their hunters to fair and fat game.

Vonth - God of Art and Pleasure. All from tavern-keepers to starving poets praised this god for anything and everything. While kind and jolly, stories told that ungrateful worshippers would be turned insane. This also garnered him the name God of Madness.

Thromb - God of Oracles and Mages. This nebulous brother of Jermak and Olmier is said to know everything at the price of being forever asleep, dreaming of the world he can never effect. He is said to come to those children destined to wield the magics of the world through horrid nightmares.

Zethra - The Goddess of Messages, daughter of Thromb and a blind mortal seer. She is worshipped by those wishing for good news. This demigod is said to descend to the world of man in dire times to relay signs and omens.

[The last God was added to the pantheon at a later date, and very few, if any, knew about it.]

Gareith Ar Zul: God of Necromancy, cruelty, chaos, and destruction. This god was always worshipped in secret. Living beings were the only thing this God would accept as sacrifice. Small cults of this God were reviled by most everyone, as they were known to steal babies from their cribs, children from their beds, and bodies from cemeteries for their terrible rituals.
