desire for all knowledge and truth to be respected and protected makes him popular with those who guard or watch over knowledge and information. As the head of the Gods of Balance, Gilean is also the primary proponent of free will and individual choice among the mortal souls of the world, and he is tireless in this outlook.
Gilean has only one child, the goddess Lunitari who sprang fully formed from him. The other neutral gods are those that he gathered to him from the Beyond, who aid in the order of Creation.

Because his estate encompasses talent and skill, he is also favored by rogues and gamblers, those individuals who rely upon their ability to turn a situation to their favor by applying what they know.
Reorx works with Shinare to spur dwarven economies.
With his forging hammer and the direction of the High God, Reorx forged the world, the stars, and the souls of mortals into existence from the essence of Chaos.

Cleric Alignments: LG, LN, LE
Domains: Commerce†, Law, Luck, Travel
Favored Weapon: Light mace (“Jeweled Delight”)
Colors: Gold, silver, and brown

Shinare (shi-nah-ree) represents the divine power of interaction. Souls aligned with the Silver Mistress growand improve the more they communicate and interact with other souls. Her estate governs all negotiations, all contracts, and all partnerships. Shinare seeks to drive the world forward with the spirit of enterprise, stripped of such ephemeral notions as desire or morality. She is the patron of merchants, honored by all who conduct trade
with fairness and conviction. A somewhat fickle goddess, she cares little for the motives of those who do business with others so long as the interaction is balanced. Because of this, slavery and mercenary activity are just as valid to her as any other industry. Abuse, unfair practices, and theft, on the other hand, will incur the wrath of Shinare for they
violate the spirit of interaction that she champions.
Shinare was called from the Beyond to serve Gilean. She is companion to Sirrion, though their relationship has been volatile and problematic. She is also friendly towards Reorx, Kiri-Jolith, and Majere. She opposes Hiddukel,who serves as god of ill-gotten wealth and bad business deals.

Worshipers: Alchemists, lovers, artists
Cleric Alignments: CE, CG, CN
Domains: Chaos, Charm†, Fire, Passion
Favored Weapon: Heavy flail (“Flaming Strike”)
Colors: Red and yellow

Sirrion is the god of alchemy, creativity, passion, and transformation. He is master of flames, and sculpts the fire of the soul into beautiful forms. He was brought from the Beyond by Gilean, and is said to provide the fire for Reorx's worldforge and the spark of divinity within all life. Artists, alchemists, and lovers are his followers.
Chaotic and unpredictable, Sirrion is nevertheless opposed to needless or undirected destruction, feeling that all change should produce something and mark a transition between the old and the new. As a patron of the arts and of alchemy, Sirrion’s fiery presence does much to promote this ideal.
His clerics must tend to an ever-burning flame in his home or a temple of Sirrion. They also act as firefighters, and are knowledgeable in the use of fire to clean out the old and make way for the new.
Sirrion is said to have formed his mate, Shinare, from wondrous metals. The two are close, though their relationship is characterized by fiery debate. Amongst the humans of the Imperial League, Sirrion is worshipped and commonly depicted as a fiery goddess known as Sinar.

Other names: The Alchemist, Firemaster, the Flowing Flame, the Wizard (Mithas), Sirr'ushush (Bakali), Sinar (Imperial League), Udras the Alchemist (gnomoi, minoi).

His branches reach into every time and place in the River of Time, into the past and into the future. He exists in all times and places simultaneously, and is wisest of the gods.
Zivilyn has much in common with both Majere, who also embraces wisdom, and Hiddukel, who uses his awareness to mislead others. Zivilyn was called from the Beyond by the High God to serve as counselor to Gilean, to give insight to his mate Chislev's instinct,
and to bear witness to the world and share this divine experience with mortals.

Zivilyn opposes the consuming hatred by deities such as Sargonnas and Takhisis, and the martial ambition of Kiri-Jolith, but calls no god his enemy.

Other names: Tree of Life, Wise One (Mithas), World Tree.
