Claims about gods, according to Albarion:
The gods are very large, powerful multiplanar beings. Because They are so much bigger, They perceive reality very differently from how mortals do, and also act on the world in very different ways. They are believed to have much more direct access to what mortals call Foresight. This is likely why They have a reputation for acting subtly, and for communicating cryptically when They do it at all, sending vague visions. When priests speak directly to their god, which is rare, generally they have only hazy memories of it afterward; sometimes they remember that a conversation happened, but nothing of it except the conclusion. They seem to vary somewhat on this axis. Some gods intervene more flashily than others, or speak to Their worshippers more.
They can perform miracles, but it is believed not to be free for Them; it costs some kind of unknown resource. They can possess mortals, demonstrably, and work magic through them, but this is believed to be practical only for mortals who worship Them. Some of the greatest miracles ever documented were after the Cataclysm, when the Star-Eyed Goddess rendered the damaged lands of the Dhorisha Plains habitable, and granted the Tayledras powerful, unheard-of-before magic, in exchange for a binding pact with both of them to serve Her.
