Can all mortal creatures create deities out of sheer belief or just the Kuo-toa? And if only the Kuo-toa can, is this true only for Realmspace or is it true for the whole of the dnd multiverse? All deities in the Realms are created out of sheer belief. I can't speak for the entire multiverse, but it seems likely, from all sages and high priests have observed.#Realmslore

wait, what? aren’t some of them people who ascended to godhood? That's right, but retaining godhood depends on the belief of mortals.
If no worshippers believe in you, you fade away.#Realmslore
