At the Dawn, the Hykimi Alliance of Fronela and Ralios worshiped a myriad of ancestors, beast spirits, and other spirits, but acknowledge a loose pantheon of Old Gods including: Ehilm the Sun; Gata the Earth Goddess; Humat the Storm God; Lodik the Fire God; Nakala the Darkness Goddess; Sramak the Source of Waters; Tilntae the Goddess of Life; Urtiam the God of Law; and Zrenthus the Sky God.
Minor gods included Eurmal the Clever One, and his son Yomat Friend of Men; Galanin the Sun Horse; Gethor, the God of Death; Flamal, the God of Plants; Hykim, the God of Beasts; Xentha, the Goddess of Night; Vieltor, the Smithing God; and the twins Zolan and Anehilla, who spend half their time in the Sky and the other half in the Underworld. Others worshiped their Beast Ancestors, such as Telmor, Pendal, Basmol, Rathor, and Tawar.
These deities had no broad cults outside of Hrelar Amali; instead they functioned as ancestor cults and only served their kin, and some Hykimi boasted of divine bloodlines that enabled them to call upon these deities.
Spirit cults were more useful, and Hykimi shamans knew of many localized spirits that were children or lesser versions of the gods (called Srvulai by the Malkioni).
The “Old Gods” came under the influence of the Theyalans and the Malkioni, and many of these deities were discovered to have other names and cults. For example, Humat was later incorporated into the Theyalan Orlanth cult or syncretized with Pelorian deities during the Gbaji Wars. The Dark Empire was another period of syncretization, with the ruling Arkati revealing associations based on Arkat’s explorations of the God Plane. This process was greatly accelerated by the God Learners. In the Third Age, the Ralians and central Fronelans worship gods largely recognizable to the Theyalans and Malkioni, but with many spirits and minor gods unique to each locality.
Most of these Old Gods are easily understood as local variants of more widely recognised deities: Ehilm is the Sun Disk, Gata, Umath, Lodril, Xentha, Sramake, Uleria, Mostal, and Aether. Zoran and Anehilla are common identified with Tolat and Annilla, and Gethor with Humakt.
