The Celestial Gods are the deities of Celestialism, the dominant religion in Orthon.
The basic faith of Celestialism is a faith in the gods of the pantheon. The worship practices for these gods – their holy days, rites, and prayer services – is standardized in the Holy Episcopate’s capital of Silverstream, by the Celestial Archbishops. These forms of worship are used throughout Orthon.
According to Celestialist dogma, these deities are the only true gods. There are no beings above them, and there are no other beings worthy of worship. This is not to deny the demonstrable fact that there are clerics who profess the faiths of non-Celestial gods. However, according to Celestialism, these faiths are mere cults, following false idols that do not have true universal power.
This is the official belief of Celestialism according to the Archbishops. However, outside the Holy Episcopate’s territory, people generally don’t see anything wrong with venerating other gods outside the Celestial pantheon, as long as they aren’t evil gods. People in the Empire of Gard and Dragonfall often worship the Ascendants right along with the Celestial gods, for example.
