Petty Gods

In addition to the major deities, the northern Realms includes numerous Petty Gods—local gods and minor demi-deities too weak to attract broader worship. These gods do not have specialty priests, nor do they grant additional powers or proficiencies to their clerics. They do, however, due to their need for worship, tend to be very free in bestowing their blessings on any character who offers prayers to them.

Many priests, especially Shamans, in the north tend to be pantheists, praying to any number of petty gods to whom they feel an affinity (effectively worshiping all petty gods that allow worshipers of their alignment and priest class).

Characters, of any class, may pray to a petty god (even if they worship a major deity), invoking their blessings by making a Prayer proficiency check. This use of the Prayer proficiency does not count against the limit of using prayer only once every 8 hours, but only works in those situations or areas over which the petty god holds sway (subject to DM discretion).

The New Gods

These godlike while “petty” by divine standards (in that they can be directly engaged and even killed by mortals) wield an unusually large amount of influence in the northern Realms, making them akin to the greater powers, at least on a local scale. Their specialty priests are comparable to those of greater gods, though they are much rarer.
