The primary god of most of the civilised races on Nereth, Shaper is the essential creator god, as well as the patron of artisits and intellectuals. He is the bringer of knowledge and inspiration, and it was with this divine muse that he first created the world. His churches and cathedrals are in every major city on the island, and the Church of Shaper wields immense power over both kingdoms.
The Church of Shaoer is an intensely evangelical organisation. It tolerates the other four gods of the Nereth Pantheon, but only just, and it reserves a special hatred for all foreign deities. It believes such new beliefs will dilute the faith of the islanders. It is led by a council of High Bishops, and under them is an extensive hierarchy of priests, scribes and bureaucrats that monitor the church’s extensive lands and taxes. There is no military aid to speak of, but the church has a network of inquisitors that can be called on at any time to seek out enemies.
