I'm doing some world-building, and one of the themes I'm working on is a greater moral and religious ambiguity than D&D normally has. I've scrapped alignments, and am creating a variety of religious systems that are basically contradictory. But I'm slightly stuck... This is what I have so far:

Dwarves have a monotheistic religion, driven by tradition and prophesy, that has schismed into two churches that can be considered analogous to the Catholic and Orthodox Christian churches.
Elves follow a shamanistic system based on totem animals.
Humans worship their ancestor-heroes, in the system most similar to the standard D&D pantheon.
Goblins worship their clan leaders as gods, similar to Egyptian pharoes.
Coivalds (from Mythic Races) worship nature (it may be more accurate to say that they worship a god whose completely coterminous with the world). They invariably become druids rather than clerics.
Sandesti (also from Mythic Races) worship elemental forces in the forms of sand (earth), river (water), sky (air), sun (fire) and moon (spirit).

The problem I'm having is that I can't think of anything to do with gnomes. To be honest, I've been kind of drawing a blank on them for more than just religion. I'm half-tempted to drop them as a race altogether, but I do like them, and I'd rather keep them, if I can just think of a decent handle...

If anyone has any ideas, I'd be glad to hear them.

It's the Eastern Orthodox Catholic Church.

While they do claim to be the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, I've never heard the term "Eastern Orthodox Catholic Church" in preference to "Eastern Orthodox Church". I don't think it makes a great deal of difference, though, so long as we know what we're talking about.

True enough.

From a theological standpoint, however, I believe they are technically Catholic, thus my original supposition.
