Alaxar, god of fire and the sun

Many deities, gods, and other similar supernatural beings exist in the world of Eamon or are known to its inhabitants. This article lists gods, demons, and the like that have been named in Eamon adventures or other materials.

Gods and goddesses

Gods are first mentioned in the Eamon Player's Manual where Donald Brown describes the Power spell as an appeal to the gods to "do something". In The Halls of the Adept, the King wishes the adventurer well by saying, "May the gods of Eamon be with you." Adventure authors have identified and described a number of these deities.
