The gods in Abandoned Realms aren't just story pieces and background lore. They're old players, and some of them are still around. They guide the course of events in the world and each of them stands for their own unique idea and represents a different portion of the playerbase.

When you follow the religion of an active immortal, the immortal sees you log in in BOLD and the real person behind the keyboard takes more notice of your character. They see your prays and they see when you sacrifice objects. You literally attract the attention of your god.

This is VERY DIFFERENT from playing without a living deity. If you worship an inactive immortal there simply will not be the same degree of interaction you'd have otherwise. The same thing goes for cabals with active immortals. The other immortals see you praying to another deity. You aren't theirs, and your roleplay (probably) doesn't fall within the domain of things the immortals can interact with in-character most of the time. If you feel ignored, you might be following a dead god.

You won't see active immortals in the "who" list. We are usually invisible. Here are some good ways to find active immortals whose religions and cabals you should gravitate toward:
    check the forum for immortal activity
    read the MOTD on login, or use the motd command in-game to check for recent game changes
    stop by irc in irc.quakenet.org #spoon or use http://abandonedrealms.com/chat.php
    read your NOTEs
    look at the other players on the WHO list - if a bunch of players all have the same religions or alignments, consider joining the cult (or do the opposite and fight against it)
