* ProxyWar: The incessant {{Divine Conflict}}s between the hundred-plus deities in the setting usually play out as fights between their worshipers, from large-scale wars by the powerful cult of [[GodOfEvil Bane]] that rules Zhentil Keep down to individual paladins and clerics. The gods taking the field themselves is a rare and usually cataclysmic occurrence.

Added DiffLines:

* EthnicGod: There are several different racial and ethnic pantheons. The largest is the Faerunian pantheon (most humans), and there's also the elven pantheon, the drow pantheon, the dwarven pantheon, the halfling pantheon, the gnomish pantheon, and the orcish pantheon. The human nations of Mulhorand and Unther also had their own pantheons, but the Untheric pantheon (an import of the Sumerian and Babylonian pantheons) was extinct by the end of the Time of Troubles and the Mulhorandi pantheon (a version of the Egyptian pantheon) was destroyed by the Spellplague in 4th Edition.
** Some other racial deities from early editions of the game:
*** ''Deities and Demigods Cyclopedia'': Hruggek (bugbears), Skerrit (centaurs and satyrs), Surtur (fire giants), Thrym (frost giants), Grolantor (hill giants and ettins), Skoraeus Stonebones (stone giants), Maglubiyet (goblins and hobgoblins), Kurtulmak (kobolds), Blibdoolpoolp (kuo-toa), Semuanya (lizard men), Eadro (locathah and mermen), Vaprak (ogres), Sekolah (sahuagin) and Laogzed (troglodytes).
*** Some monsters worshipped demon princes from the Abyss as deities: Yeenoghu (gnolls), Demogorgon (ixitxachitl), Baphomet (minotaurs), Graz'zt (lamia).
*** In an article in ''Magazine/{{Dragon}}'' magazine #63 Roger Moore wrote up additional deities to fill out the pantheons of the kobolds, goblins and hobgoblins.
*** Bahamut and Tiamat were the deities of good and evil dragons, respectively.
*** The 2nd Edition supplement ''Monster Mythology'' had dozens of new deities for monsters.

* VillainProtagonist - The ''WarOfTheSpiderQueen'' series is a StoryArc-spanning adventure for the sake of a ReligionOfEvil. Though ''some'' of them were quite decent even by non-drow standarts [[spoiler:or "got better" later]].

* YouAreACreditToYourRace: The moon elf Queen Amlaruil is adored by most of her subjects, even bigoted sun elves. In ''Evermeet'' her son Prince Lamruil relates an incident where one such bigot absolutely loathed him but wouldn't hear a word that was ''vaguely'' against his mother.

* DevilsJobOffer: A close variant in the setting. Kelemvor, god of the dead, is sometimes known to punish the souls of the False (i.e. people who claimed fealty to a deity but didn't actually obey the tenets of the faith) by putting them into servitude in his domain, the Fugue Plane. The job varies, from guarding the realm against demonic incursions to acting as a local guide for living people who are just visiting the Fugue Plane for whatever reason.
