Deities and Religion
I like to think about the gods of Faerūn from the point of view of NPC such as Commoners, or Warriors. Here follows some comments about the gods of Faerūn.

About the Time of Troubles
Dru, more known as Druhallen of Sunderath, is a skilled wizard who appears in the Forgotten Realms novel The Nether Scroll. This wizard had some thoughts about the Time of Troubles, thought that are presented below. For more details, see page 216.
Angharradh is the elven goddess of spring, fertility, planting, birth, defense, and wisdom. She is a Greater Power and her Domanis are Chaos, Elf, Good, Knowledge, Plant, Protection, and Renewal. She is primary venerated by moon elves.
Bane has many names. He is called the Black Lord, the Lord of Darkness, the Black Hand, and the Dark One. But, as Fessel the Garrulous said, Bane could also be called the Dark Lord. Actually, Bane could be called by any combination that the imagination and the ignorance of humans can muster.
Bane has been around for a long time, longer than Cyric. Jergal was first, but he belongs to the long lost past. Folk from the Dales have feared Bane for a long time.
As one of lord Mourngrym's soldier, Fessel the Garrulous, said:
Tyr -- The God of Justice, LG
Tyr is the god of justice. He is worshiped in many regions of Faerūn, but his clerics are favored in Calimshan, Cormyr, the Dalelands, the Moonsea, Sembia, Tethyr, and the Vilhon Reach (Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting p. 23, table 1-3 Favored Deities by Region). The alignment of a Cleric of Tyr is either LG, LN, or NG (Faiths and Pantheons p. 79). The alignment of a dedicated worhiper of Tyr is either LG, LN, or NG (Faiths & Avatars p. 169). He is worshiped by paladins, judges, magistrates, lawyers, police, and the oppressed (Faiths and Pantheons p. 79).
