Portals: Deities GeographyHistoryMagic

Lathander (pronounced lah-THAN-der), whose title is The Morninglord, is the neutral good deity of creativity, dawn, renewal, birth, athletics, spring, self-perfection, vitality and youth. He favors those who dispel the undead and blesses those who plant new life. Lathander is also the god called upon to bless birth and fertility related ceremonies. Lathander is one of the Gods of Light.

All of Lathander’s clergy respect art, liberty, nature and culture, promote betterment of oneself and strive to bring hope to their followers and others. Many of these followers work in various creative arts. They are intolerant of evil, especially undead and inaction that causes evil to prosper. Most ceremonies of Lathander are held at dawn and actions and contracts agreed to at sunrise are said to be blessed by him. Funerals, among his followers, are held at dusk, and followed by a wake that lasts until dawn.
