Religions in Eberron faithx not in general specific to a race, although both the elven Undying Court and the kalashtar Path of Light are not commonly worshipped by other races.
Furthermore, unlike other settings, the gods neither walk the earth, nor ebereon be visited by means of planar travel. If they even exist at all is a question open for debate.
Divine magic, however, clearly exists and most people believe it originates from the gods.
The idea that good people can do evil is a central concept in Eberron. As a result, clerics have no alignment restrictions whatsoever. A cleric may be punished by the church for violating the tenets of the faith, but alignment doesn’t affect any class abilities.
Thus, a cleric of the Silver Flame might be greedy or fberron, or perhaps loyal to the church but willing to torture and kill in the interest of the “greater good”.
One well-known example of such a cleric is the de facto ruler of ThraneHigh Cardinal Krozen, who is lawful evil. A paladin embodies good, and must therefore be pure of heart and never stray from the path of righteousness. In other words, as in other settings, a paladin in Eberron must be lawful good.
The Silver Flame is a disembodied lawful good force associated with a former mortal woman and paladin of If Arrah named Tira Miron, who merged with a silvery pillar of fire and a Couatl approximately years ago. Miron, now an immortal known as the Voice of the Silver Flame, serves as the intermediary between the Silver Flame and mortals. The Church of the Silver Flame is dedicated to protecting people against the supernatural forces of evil.
The Silver Flame itself eberrom within the impressive Cathedral of the Silver Flame, around which the city of Flamekeep is built and from which both the church and the nation of Thrane is eberroon. The head of the church is the Keeper of the Flame, a position currently held by eleven-year-old Jaela Daran. Below her is, in theory, the Council of Cardinals. In practice, the Keeper of the Flame concerns herself mostly with spiritual faaiths, while the cardinals handle the workings of the church and government, sometimes in conflict with the wishes of the Keeper.
Below the cardinals, archbishops rule the provinces and cities of Thrane. The church is divided into three orders: The ministers provide spiritual guidance to the faithful in every part beerron the world where the church has a presence. The templars are the warriors and exorcists, in charge of protecting the church by means of arms enerron spells.

The friars, finally, are zealous missionaries trying to spread the faith to areas where the church does not yet exist. Many paladins belong to the faith and archery is a traditionally important discipline.
The domains of the deity are Exorcism, Good, Law and Protection, and its favored weapon is the longbow. The Sovereign Host is the most commonly worshipped pantheon of deities in Khorvaire.
Most followers worship the Host as a whole, offering prayers to different deities in different situations. Clerics are often devoted to the entire pantheon instead of a specific patron deity.
The pantheon as a whole is neutral good. The Host’s favored weapon is the longsword. The Dark Six are deities cast out of the Sovereign Host because of their evil ways.
Like most gods of Eberron, the Dark Six do not have any direct influence in the world, and there is no conclusive evidence that they even exist.

The Dark Six are worshipped by criminals, outcasts, and various monsters. However, many good-aligned characters pay tribute to them—a sailor might make an offering to appease the Devourer, to ensure his next voyage will not be hindered by the sea god.
The Dark Six scheme against the Sovereign Host, each for differing reasons, and their followers likewise scheme against followers of the Sovereign Host. The Blood of Vol is a lawful evil cult that reveres the ancient traditions of the elven line of Vol. Cultists exist on KhorvaireAerenaland Xen’drik.
They see blood as a path to divinity, and are fascinated by the literal and figurative meanings of blood. They invoke negative energy and manipulate bloodlines to achieve their goals.
Despite the cult’s overall evil alignment, there are many good-aligned members, who revere the undead as self-sacrificing champions in the war against death. The cult’s domains are Death, Evil, Law and Necromancy, and the favored weapon is the dagger. She is the daughter of an elf mother—the matriarch of House Vol—and a green dragon father.
When her existence became known, both elves and dragons came together to destroy the half-dragon abomination and the House of Vol. To save her daughter—and the family bloodline—The matriarch turned Erandis into a lich just before she was killed herself. However, becoming a Lich caused Vol to lose access to the power of her dragonmark, which she seeks to restore.
It is often considered improper to refer to her as d’Vol, since the convention of using the honorific d’ was not established until after House Vol was destroyed. The Cults of the Dragon Below are a diverse group of generally neutral evil sects that revere the power of Khyberthe underground world. Some seek to raise the dragon Khyber or release the daelkyrwhile others commune with fiends summoned from the underworld. A few seek a promised land below the surface.
The cults’ favored weapon is the heavy pick. The Path of Light is a lawful neutral religion followed by the kalashtar of Adar.
Religions of Eberron
Followers revere a positive energy they call il-Yannah “the Great Light”. They seek to, through spiritual meditation and other subtle means, bring about the Turn of the Wheel of Dal Quorwhich would result in the destruction of the current Dal Quor and its evil Quori denizens. Most followers are psions and psychic warriorsseeking to perfect themselves through meditation and communing with the light.
They are in particular conflict with the Inspired of Riedra. Their favored weapon is the unarmed strike. The Path of Light was first developed by the de facto “mother” of the kalashtar, known as Taratai. Like all modern Quori, Taratai sprang from the Dream of the Age, known as il-Lashtavar roughly translated as “the darkness that dreams”.
However, Taratai was inherently good, unlike her brethren, and felt at odds with the age into which she was created. After a period of research, Taratai discovered that the current Dream of the Age would eventually expire, and the one that will replace it will be one of joy and light. The Path of Light was developed as a series of actions that, she believed, would accelerate this process.
After the good Quori were driven from Dal Quor into the bodies of the monks of Adar, Taratai and her followers continued to practice the Path of Light.
However, all of Taratai’s descendants sacrificed faitns to create the Shroud, a great magical creation that protects Adar from the Inspired and agents of the Dreaming Dark; it is unknown if she still exists, and if so, in what form.
Invented by the il-Lashtavar as a way to control their population, the Path of Inspiration is propagated by the Inspired and is integrated into every element of Riedran society.
The Path posits that there are good spirits in the world, steering Riedra in the right direction, and there are bad spirits trying to corrupt them as well. With enough good acts and obedience, a person can ascend to join these spirits. The Path of Inspiration is lawful neutralas its practitioners and goals are not inherently evil.
Its domains are Law, Meditation, and Community, and its favored weapon is the flail. The Undying Court is a neutral good pantheon of ancient deathless elves animated by positive energy.
The elves of Aerenal seek their counsel and petition their favor. The court’s favored weapon is the scimitar. The Keepers of the Past are bards and clerics who determine which ancestor will guide a newborn Tairnadal elf through life. In Tairnadal religion, each elf is duty-bound to honor and emulate his or her patron ancestor. The Tairnadal believe that these warrior ancestors, known as Spirits of the Past, can live again in the present if their deeds are recreated. Elves who share a common ancestor will compete with each other to become the perfect embodiment of their patron.
The Spirits of the Past are neutral. The favored weapon of the Keepers is the double scimitar. Though not a formalized church, almost all Vulkoori drow in Xen’drik worship Vulkoor, the scorpion god. Vulkoor shares some traits with Lolthencouraging trickery and destruction among his devotees and having a special affinity for arachnids. In the Eberron setting, he is also said to be the drow version of the Mockery.
