Gods with Paladins
Solus: A ton of sects. “The Lightbringers” are the personal paladin squad of the High Saint himself. The “Planters” are a militarized sect for national defense. The “Rays” are a missionary sect.
Oritam: One sect exists called the “Enders”. They exclusively hunt and destroy undead, sworn to wipe Spes and his minions from Tor.
Goriv: Two sects. The “Axemen” are the de facto justice dealers in Deima, and “The Anvils” are the goddess’s traveling paladins.
Qito: Three sects: “Judges” travel the countryside righting wrongs. “Blue Shields” dedicate themselves to helping communities develop defenses. “Open Hands” travel the world fighting against Hemsham’s anarchy.

Gods, Death and Resurrection
When a mortal dies, Oritam does not judge them, as he has done so while they still lived. The soul immediately travels to the appropriate plane due to their alignment, and begins the process of becoming a petitioner. If the mortal was a devout worshiper of a particular god, the alignment gets overridden, and the soul goes to the god’s plane (or to its realm itself if a particularly devout mortal). Holy men of a particular god immediately go to their god’s divine realm upon death. If the god so chooses, it can make any newly arrived soul into an appropriate outsider immediately upon arrival.
