Yay, I get to dust off some old books! Third and Second edition sources The AD&D 2nd edition Faiths and Avatars supplement covers Kelemvor in detail. I'll be quoting from his entry from the more recent 3rd Edition Forgotten Realms book Faiths and Pantheons. It says this about him: Cleric Alignments: LE, LG, LN ...

There is no equivalent to the Faiths and Pantheons book for 5th edition yet, so you'll have to stick with the Player's Handbook, the Forgotten Realms Wiki, and Forgotten Realms books to get a better view of your chosen god.

We now have irrefutable Rules As Written about the possibility that mere mortals can indeed kill a god. In the Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide page 20: Dead and Resurrected Gods Over and over, mourning bells have tolled for some of the deities of the Realms. Gods were struck down during the Time of Troubles, when the Spellplague wrought its ...

This Is Entirely World, Location, And Church Dependent Asking for a general answer is nonsensical. St. Cuthbert existing across game settings also doesn't really make sense - St. Cuthbert has a lot of established lore in Greyhawk that doesn't necessarily apply. And St. Cuthbert's clergy are notoriously hard headed, so if Prelate Whoever wants to or doesn't ...
