Thank you for your feedback (the previous post)! I like your idea about naga and merman, also i agree with vyncyn and eagle 11. If the dwarves do have a God it probably isn't the same person their talking about when they say "by the beard of <whoever>"
Also (to your recent post): i agree that necromancer would want to be worshiped, whats interesting though is that worship from a bunch of dead mindless warriors is probably not so satisfying, But they always kill everyone else before they give them a chance to worship them....
@Eagle 11 -
I am glad you posted your ideas! It is great to get backstory ideas. I like your ideas, and agree it is better that in campaigns and wesnoth lore that gods don't play an active part. To some extent it is possible that all these "gods" are merely fake and each religion believes in a different fake god, however due to the mass of magical powers in wesnoth compared to the normal world we live in, either -
A: wesnoth is a different world that has other laws of nature, which allow such powers to be gained
B: - their is some external force in wesnoth (or more than one) which though not directly active in the lives of the people in wesnoth, gives power and magical abilities
Either option is reasonable but i personally prefer option B.

The only question i have about this is that if this is part of their religion would we see drake diviners more often? It seems that these diviners would almost be like human magi, however these drakes seem to be rare. (compared to magi)
I like your idea about ogres!
