Curse of the Crimson Throne
The gods of Korvosa are as varied as its people, but some are more prominent than others. The faiths of Abadar, Asmodeus, Pharasma, Sarenrae, and Shelyn all maintain temples in the city. There is also a rundown Temple of Aroden maintained by the dead god’s dwindling flock. Other faiths have public shrines at the Pantheon of the Many, which offers space to worship all but the most vile gods.
