In a city as large as Waterdeep, you are certain to find people of many different faiths. Some only pay lip service and others who are devout. Take a look at the many religions that Waterdeep supports as well as the strange philosophies of it citizenry.

Greetings, I am Zenkara Nashid, an Aasimar and devout follower of the Divine Arts. I have been asked to spearhead this section due to the fact that I have no religious affiliations and therefore will remain impartial and unbiased.

To begin let me tell you a little of myself. I was born in a land far to the south known as Estagund where I was raised to beliieve in The Adama or "The One" which is the embodiment of the spirit found in all things. Therefor all creatures and objects, including deities, are considered manifestations of the Adama. One could say that in worshiping any deity pays homage to the Adama. There are some aspects and deities that are not acceptable of course, typically those that promote thievery and human sacrifice.

My role here is not to promote any single religious belief over another. I will give each faith equal opportunity to promote itself and allow you to make your own judgements. I aspire only to seek answers, not to influence.
