All souls are called to holiness and purity of life. Attainment of this is a mortals highest calling. Seek holiness both by overseeing the Evil within and opening yourself to Good.

Obey those properly set above you, and be gentle but firm to those below. Pray always, and always seek the truth. Look to the world around you; in the order of Creation you will find keys to holiness. Help call others to virtue, but do through teaching and example, not force and fear. Oppose evil with fervor, but without hatred. Show mercy when possible, but be hard when necessary. Above all things, have faith. There is an order and a purpose to creation, and as long as you do not turn your back on goodness, your life shall not be in vain.

He has few faithful compared to the other gods, but does have a following of monks. His influence on the world is constant but subtle. He often gives counsel to the other Gods of Light in times of crisis. He is appreciated by all the Gods of Good, advising Paladine, Kiri-Jolith, and Mishakal.

Majere influences Meditation control, thought, mercy, inspiration, and above all faith. He will take only two avatar forms; That of a beautiful woman, with all the desirable features only bald, and blind. Another form is that of an elderly bald man, that is very unnerving to those that are not truthful to themselves. His colors include copper and red.
His main mission as a God is not to recruit worshipers, but to restore the faith in the True Gods of Good. His enemy is any who are evil and Chemosh in particular, who are the only ones he shows no mercy..

Rewards fit actions. The guilty must be brought before the law. Good stands in contrast to Evil, as day is in contrast to night, and neither one is able to exist without the other. Although the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, the parts must not be forgotten. Good redeems its own. None are so lost that they cannot see the light.That good should be upheld in word, thought and deed, and even those who are lost in darkness can still be redeemed and learn forgiveness.

Leader of the Gods of Good; Creator of the Dragons; and Founder of the Knights of Solamnia. Paladine influences order, hope light and guardianship. His colors are silver and white. He most commonly takes the Avatar for of a befuddled Wizard named Fizban, who can't even remember his name much less the words to a certain spell. A fat old hard of hearing priest, who brings out only the best of those around him. A elderly warrior with a dragon upon his crest.

In the beginning he helped Takhisis create life which in turn created the Rift between Good and Evil. He rarely gets directly involved with mortal matters. He thinks it is best for mortals to act on their own free will, and just nudge his followers in the right direction. He leads his pantheon through example and not by command.

With the constant threat of Takhisis entering the world, Paladine, with the help of his sons, created the Knights of Solamnia, to help suppress this threat. He later realized that the Knights were in need of an 'edge', so her revealed the location of the DragonLance.

Paladine responds to the demands of the Kingpriest, who arrogantly demands power from the Gods, by casting the fiery mountain upon the world, causing the Cataclysm. He is a patriarch of sorts to the Gods of Light. He is advised by Majere and is the partner of Mishakal. Kiri-Jolith and Habbakuk are also close to him. He honors Solinari by taking the form of a white robed wizard during the War of the Lance. He respects the Gods of Neutrality with no special friends among them, and opposes all Gods of Evil. His celestial symbol is the constellation Platinum Dragon.

Solinari, also known as the Mighty Hand, the Ivory Disk, and God's Eye, represents the godly power of magic used for good. He patrons wizards who use their magic with the ideals of compassion, protection, and foresight. As one of the creators of the Laws of High Sorcery he upholds them vigorously. At one point he is the divine power of vigilance, but when he and his cousins in magic abandon the godly planes to be closer to the world he becomes less focused on the Progression of Souls.

Founder of the White Robes, His influences include that of thought, numbers, and time. He hardly ever takes avatar form, because his moon is the closest to Krynn.
