The Religions of Korvosa

The Bank of Abadar (38% -) is situated in North Point, the first section of the mainland settled by Korvosa’s founders. The temple serves every banking need, providing safe deposit boxes, saving and investment accounts, loans, and writs of credit, as well as minting Korvosan currency and working to regulate the economy. The Abadarans of Korvosa are led by Archbanker Darb Tuttle. They are also responsible for overseeing contracts in Korvosa, though the Asmodeans regularly contest that right.

The Temple of Asmodeus (26% +) was initially built quickly in the wake of House Thrune’s ascent to the Chelish throne, and until Queen Dominia Arabasti ordered it remodeled in 4683, it was not a safe structure in the least. Now, it is one of the most magnificent buildings in the city, built from red marble in the shape of a five-pointed star, and situated upon Citadel Crest, the wealthiest ward in all Korvosa. Archbishop Ornher Reebs presides overs the sinister rites of the Asmodeans; thus far, neither the Guard, the Hellknights, nor Sable Company have been able to find any evidence proving his rumored connection to the slave trade.

The Grand Cathedral of Pharasma (8% +) rises over the Gray District. The stern clerics of the Lady of Graves watch over the cemetery there, performing burial rites and acting as the city’s first line of defense against undead incursions. The operations of the Cathedral are overseen by Bishop Keppira d’Bear.

The Temple of Saerenrae (7% -) is situated in the Cliffside ward of the Heights, a turreted construction of white marble dedicated to providing healing for the sick, and aid to the dispossessed.


Besides these, there are a number of other, smaller places of worship in Korvosa.

The Sanctuary of Shelyn (2% -) sits in the southern end of North Point, a small, square building richly appointed with statuary, murals, flowering plants, and a gorgeous interior courtyard.

A small Shrine to Irori (1% -) can be found in Old Korvosa, though you’ll have to look carefully. True to the ascetic nature of their patron, the shrine is sparse and spartan, and all but unmarked.

The Pantheon of Many (18% +) in South Shore houses shrines and clergy to all the deities mention above, as well as Calistria, Cayden Cailean, Desna, Erastil, Gozreh, Iomedae, Nethys, Urgathoa, Torag, and Zon-Kuthon.

The worship of Lamashtu and Rovagug is illegal for obvious reasons, and Gorum worship, while not illegal, is discouraged, and no public shrines to the Lord in Iron exists—his doctrine of constant war is too unstable for the authorities to approve of.
