    In the main rulebook Goblins are listed as having Gods. There are no
    official entries, just a mentioning that they would worship their
    traditional deity. Same for gnolls. Torazan is listed for Orogs.

    Giants and Dragons are so rare, it should never be an issue in most
    campaigns. If it is in yours, you should decide what fits your storyline
    best and go with it.

    Personally I lump the Elves, Giants, and Dragons all in one pool. They are
    creatures of the elements, and by products of creation. As they were not
    planned, no deity has a particular sway or control over them. The human gods
    IMC rose up from the early tribes of men. I guess that means my Cerilia was
    created by some "other" force (like Lord Ao I guess, but not with the hokey
    name!) that I have never bothered with. My Cerilian bibles would start with
    something like:
    "When man woke and found himself in the world, a world built long before his
    awakening..." At best, the humans might have been created but needed to
    "sleep" until after the Giant's vs. Dragon wars were over.

    I would say that, as gods, they *could* create new creatures; but don't.
    They are much more reserved with their power than the original gods were, as
    they have seen the dangers of going too far with it firsthand. Also, it does
    not make sense to add to creation long after it's over. Even earth based
    religion does not really focus on new creation. That's all over. In a
    relative, non all-inclusive, sort of way. (Ie: Don't nitpick that if your
    religion DOES still have creation).

    Demi-humans/Humanoids origins?

    Okay people, I'm curious as the origins of Demihumans/HUmanoids in the Wordl of
    Cerilia...
    well since most of them were created by the Gods...what about those who don't
    have gods...Elves,Goblinkind,Giants,Dragons?
    I remember someone mentioning that they came from some other dimension, where
    did found this info?

    Could the elves have been once servants of the Gods like the ELves in Raymond
    Feist novesl? Servants of the Valheru?
    (This one is for the Bestiary)
    If the Old gods made most of the Creature in Cerilia, it stands to reason that
    the new ones may have tried to do the same, what would these new creatures be
    like? WHat would Haelyn create?Kriesha?Cuiracean?

    Thanks!
