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

The Gods of ChaosEdit

The many followers of Chaos devote themselves to one of the four gods of the Realm of Chaos.

Ruinous PowersEdit

  • Khorne - the Blood God; god of hate, rage and bloodshed. Greater Daemons of Khorne are called Bloodthirsters.
  • Nurgle - Lord of Decay; god of plague and decay. Greater Daemons of Nurgle are called Great Unclean Ones.
  • Slaanesh - the Dark Prince; god of self-indulgence and lust. Greater Daemons of Slaanesh are called Keepers of Secrets.
  • Tzeentch - Changer of Ways; god of change, sorcery, ambition and scheming. Greater Daemons of Tzeentch are called Lords of Change.
  • Chaos Undivided - The worship of Chaos as a single force or as a pantheon rather than separate Gods.

OthersEdit

  • Minor deities worshiped 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.
