The Warhammer World which WAR is set in, has many deities, gods and goddesses; which are worshipped by its inhabitants.

Chaos GodsEdit

Chaos Gods, many followers of Chaos devote themselves to only one God.

Ruinous PowersEdit

  • Khorne - God of hate, rage and bloodshed.
  • Nurgle - God of plague and decay.
  • Slaanesh - God of self-indulgence and lust.
  • Tzeentch - God of change, sorcery, ambition and scheming.
  • Chaos Undivided - The worship of Chaos as a single force or as a pantheon rather than separate Gods.

OthersEdit

  • Minor deities worshipped by the Northmen are countless in number, but most are not named in the background individually.
  • Neocho and Zuvassin are two minor renegade Gods of Chaos. They first appeared in the Something Rotten in Kislev book, a part of the Enemy Within campaign for the 1st Edition of WFRP. They made a major return in the Tome of Salvation book (a supplement about gods for the 2nd edition of WFRP by Black Industries), where they are both described as "Aspects of an unknown deity". Both of them are aspects of Malal, the Renegade God, who is no longer present in the Warhammer setting. This is due to a copyrights conflict between the Games Workshop and the authors of the comic The Quest of Kaleb Daark (which appeared in the Citadel Journal in the 80s). From that time, Games Workshop lost its rights for the Outcast One and had to substitute him with Zuvassin and Necoho instead.
