The Gods are Silent

gods.jpg Long ago, when the planet was green, the brutal might of the primordials overcame the gods.

Today, Athas is a world without deities. There are no clerics, no paladins, and no prophets or religious orders.

In the absence of divine influence, other powers have come to prominence in the world. Psionic power is well known and widely practiced on Athas; even unintelligent desert monsters can have deadly psionic abilities. Shamans and druids call upon the primal powers of the world, which are often sculpted by the influence of elemental power.
