Mythos

Pure Tuath communities that still worship these gods are rarer than Elves in the Lands.

Abberations - such as aboleths, beholders, illithids, and the like - and their gods, are the mythical foes of the Elder Elemental Gods. In the myth circles of the Tuath, it was the struggle between the two that brought on the cataclysm that ended Tuath civilization (paving the way for the other races to dominate the Athernian peninsula).

Dieties

Laeg

God of the Earth and Land Animals

Depictions of Laeg are usually the form of a huge man-like creature formed from gnarled and twisted trunks and branches of trees.

Ulna

Goddess of Water, Oceans, and Sea Creatures

Ulna is typically depicted as a woman with the lower body of a fish, fingers ending in long claws, a mouth bristling with sharp teeth, pupil-less glowing eyes, and the lure of an angler-fish extending from her forehead.

Akazash

God of Fire and Intelligent Creatures

Typically portrayed as a lion composed entirely of flame.

Ishti

Goddess of the Air and Flying Creatures

Typically portrayed as a huge, snow-white harpy like creature.

Priests

Tuath priests don't necessarily specialize to worshiping only one of the four dieties - all four are served by priests of the pantheon.

Weapon Restrictions: Nothing mechanical beyond a bow (e.g., crossbows, etc. are no good). Tuaths as a civilization favor short swords, daggers, javelins, spears, shields, hand-axes, and war-hammers

Special Powers:

  1. Bonus of 1 spell from the Elemental sphere per level per day.
  2. Detect Abominations in 300' radius (ranges from 'something's wrong here' at the far range to 'it's behind this door' when close).

+1 to hit and damage against abominations.
