I think the game's rp would be greatly improved one way or the other if a clear description of the role of race gods was placed in the race gods help file. Right now things are really confused, and people are inconsistent even within their own character's actions. It would be nice if it just said something clear like

"Racial Gods do not exist in Shadowgate although the belief in them does. With the Gods sending aspects of themselves in the guise of the racial deities in order to gather the worship of those who worship the racial Gods. There is disagreement among the mainstream followers of each God on how to treat these outlying followers with some welcoming them with open arms and calling them heretics and others just ignoring them. The Dogma of the racial deities does not follow their typical Forgotten realms counterpart, with any fundamental dogma of the racial deity that strongly contradicts the mainstream deity altered. This is mostly just for the big button issues, for example if a racial deity permits undead but its counterpart is strongly opposed, then the racial Deities followers are expected to adjust their rp accordingly."

Thats an example based on what I understand is the closest to official way racial deities are handled.

I can arrange this Smile We have a historic premise for it anyway that may help it make more sense.
