The religions of Eberron do not play a large role in the lives of the majority of most of the people of Khorvaire, as they follow the Sovereign Host. However, there are significant populations that follow the more active religions, such as the Church of the Silver Flame, the Blood of Vol, the Cults of the Dragon Below, and the Undying Court.
