    What Deities will there be? Also what kind of impacted will it have on the character?

    From Istuulamae:

    "We will be releasing that information at some point. Right now we are focusing on how picking a deity will impact char creation, class, etc. (HEAVY CAVEAT: we are also discussing *if* it will impact those things. So please hold off on any "Pantheon Dev sez deity selection will give your class a special bonus and that will adversely affect balancing" threads, if you can)

    In short, we want it to matter what deity you select, for obvious reasons. But there's a nuance in Pantheon that may differ from other games: each race has anywhere from 1-?00 deities, or things functioning in a deity-esque role. So you aren't picking from global, universal gods. You're picking from your racial roster, which is likely exclusive to your race. Now, there may still be some crossover between "like" deities, and that's the part we're working through now. So if you pick a God of Death for the Ogres, shouldn't that breed some familiarity with the followers of a similar god among the Dark Myr? We think so.

    When we've got those details worked out, I'm sure we'll have releases that help you acclimate and understand the Gods -- or similar beings -- of each race. We want you to know who you're serving, as much as you can.

    Apologies on the lore not having a fuller explanation inherently in it. I will work on a post that sheds some light on that, or may just ammend the currently posted stuff.

    Thanks!"
