Deities (or lack thereof)

Gods in Pern

(Or Lack Thereof)

A lot like Lord of the Rings, or the Wheel of Time series, there are no set gods or deities in Pern. There is “Light” and “Darkness”. Two acknowledged higher powers, but that as far as things go. Paladins and other classes that use/need deities work off of the drive for justice, evil, money, or even working for one’s own means. Basically, magic still comes from higher powers, just no specific group or anything like that. Magic really comes from a person’s own drive and what they want to accomplish. So in this world, Paladins do not necessarily have to be lawful good, just working for good of some sort or another, even if they personally view it as a good thing and other people don’t. Like vigilante justice and what not. The difference is that the colors of powers change. You can tell how good a person’s magic is by the color of purity of their magic. Pure Paladins=pure white. Pure evil wizards=black.
