The world of Holo was given life by Sky, god of light and life. When the world was new he breathed life into the Elder races in the continent of Itheria. Elves were born from the Great forest, Dwarfs from the Iron hills, Goblins from the Azonath swamp, Nisfelms (Primordial demons) from the fire and shadows deep within the mountains, and Frells (Yetis) from the ice in the frozen realms. All of them are able to use sorcery and wield magic at will.
Centuries later, Sky made the humans who were different from the other races. For humans are not highly attuned to magic and only rarely are able to use sorcery. But Sky has given them prayers which can grant miracles, blessings, or even curses.
But my problem here is that I don't know how to insert these gods into a religion for the other races of the land, when most races only knew about the gods from stories told orally?
