While the world has its own pantheon there is a connection to the larger universe which allows for divine powers to be able to reach followers, new teaching seemingly spring up and die off as priests or followers rise or fall in power and their connection with their followers grows and fades. These gods are not commonly known and are for advanced players who would like to follow or worship a particular Deity or would like to follow a particular Demihuman Deity.

Archomentals are powerful exemplary beings of the Elemental Planes and the rulers of the elementals. Although they are not truly rulers of their planes, Archomentals like to consider themselves as much and often grant themselves regal titles like Prince or Princess.

The Lady of Pain
The Lady of Pain is an enigmatic being who oversees the city of Sigil in the plane of the Outlands. Almost nothing is known about her; her origin, her race, her motives and her level of power are all obscure, although she is sometimes shown to have absolutely immense power. The Lady of Pain refuses to tolerate worshippers, killing those who do worship her. Again; virtually nothing is known about her, apart from the fact that she has the power to slay gods who displease her. She is the guardian of the portals keeping all those who enter its material plane on Vespen never to return to where they originated.
