The human gods in each land are the same cosmic entities.
The Theocracy will accept Nordländer priests even though their prayers may seem as heresy, after all they are still worshipping creatures within the Divine Assembly.
The holy men and women of the Northlands are known as hearth-priests.
There is no church or hierarchy, as there is in the Theocracy: rather, the hearth-priest tends to their folk in great rituals around the large hearth of their clan or hold, such as the joining or blooding.
Like their southern counterparts, hearth-priests are the main defence against incursions from demons and other threats to the soul. Using deep, sonorous chants called long songs to call upon the might of the sacred ones they tend to the spiritual well-being of their people.
Priests often use war hammers and trauma weapons which are blessed in the name of the Forge-Father and the Huntress.
The Forge Father, Grimnir, the All Father, and the Gatekeeper.
Grimnir is a god of outsiders, hidden things and those seeking protection from unnatural evil. People of the Northlands who find themselves in strange or dangerous places often pray to this god.
Birds are sacred to Grimnir, particularly the raven and the crow, his greatest servants. In the great legends of the north they see and hear everything, flying back to whisper into his left and right ears.
It is the belief that when a Nordländer dies, they are taken before Grimnir’s Gate and made to place their deeds as objects upon a great table for all the universe to see. Grimnir then decides which of the Rainbow Bridges the gate will open up to, and the deceased passes over into the afterlife.
