Notes:
1. Helskir is a kingdom founded by northmen migrants in the island several times, to leave from 2000 BC until the VII century AC, and therefore the cult popular there is classic Antalian. Odin is the Immortal who collected the most accord, followed by the warrior Thor and by Nooga, lord of the sea to whom numerous pirates and fishermen say prayers and give offerings in order to calm the water and favour their deeds (itís not rare to find clerics of Odin or Nooga on the boats of the pirates in order to give a favourable voyage). The brother and sister Frey and Freyja are popular in particular in the Helska hinterlands among the farmers (where it has replaced that of Frigg) and among the more astute warriors. Loki finally is worshipped both by the pirates and by the more engrained scoundrels.
2. Stodos is the lord of ice and has a following among the lizardmen that live in the cold swamps in the north of the island.
