Aradia & Herne (NN) The goddess of land and the god of the sea are said to be two halves of the same being. They are the creators of the natural world with all its beauty and savagry. Their treasures range from delicate flower to violent storm, the peace of a sunset and the cold rule of natural selection. Druids that revere them come in as much variety as nature itself.
Rauni (LN) The Judge determines the fate of all souls that pass from Creation. He determines if they have proved themselves worthy of an eternity in paradise or are condemned to destruction at Kalma’s hand. Followers of Aradia and Herne can, if they are found worthy, spend eternity in the perfect nature of summerland. Rauni is the sole decider and his pronouncements are final in order to keep relative peace between the gods. The followers of Rauni believe the rule of law to be supreme.
Kalevala (LN) The goddess of Justice ensures that there are consequences for all actions. She brings souls from the Creation to Rauni’s judgement, and then escorts them to Heaven, Hell, or Summerland as they are judged.

Tuoni (CE) The god of Undeath. His goal is to destroy the creation and replace it with one of his own making. He is one of four gods that have been able to create any form of life, perverted as it may be. Tuoni has many enemies, Kalma because his undead never truely die, Ukko because he plots to destroy the Creation, Finngerd because he works to enslave everything to his will, and Torvenus because of the torment that his undead inflict on departed souls. With so many enemies only his guile, treachery, and wife, Tuonitar, have allowed him to survive and thrive. His followers are necromancers that carry out his plans in the Creation in exchange for powers over the undead.
Tuonitar (CE) The goddess of chaos is obsessed with the void. She wishes to drag the entire universe back into the chaos from whence it came. She and Tuoni share the desire to destroy the creation, and in this they cooperate. The Mad One also has an uneasy aquaintance with Finngerd. Their shared interest in the void makes them curious about each other. While Finngerd hopes to turn her from her evil ways, she is known to manipulate him to the benefit of her husband. Her followers are usually as mad as they are unpredictable, although the most dangerous clerics are the ones that have retained a sliver of sanity.
