“Seldarine” loosely translates to "The fellowship of brothers and sisters of the wood”, and is a pantheon of deities held by many of the fey creatures of the world. The family tree of the Seldarine is immense to the no one knows all the deities. Rather, the families and groups of fey creatures pick and choose patron or matron deities to whom they offer worship while paying minor service to others.
The Seldarine is said to live in the spirit realm, which parallels this world. When one dies, their spirit passes through the realm of death and eventually onto the realm where the deities live, where they remain for eternity as part of the family.
Some of the most common Seldarine deities are listed below, but there are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of other deities worshiped by creatures the world over.
