Hey Im making a game thats set during a world wide war about religious conflict with one god for each of the 9 alignments and a couple of other minor Deities just looking for some help working out the thematics of each god
The hardest part has been coming up with a non boring Lawful Evil god. I dont mind cliche's but every god (except the Archfool) has a nation of believers so making an evil empire based god seems redundant

NG- The Heavenly One a pacifistic hedonistic god
CG-Unbound a bloodthirsty revenge god who abhors imprisonment
CN-Archfool imaginitive and humorous god
CE-Blood God beserker who is disgusted by natural deaths
NE-Lord Loss nihilistic god of entropy
LN-Watcher God of time and knowlege
LG-Purity Knight Templar Miko-esque god
NN-Mother- Creator deity
NN-Faceless god of monks and martial arts

also there are the minor deities
NG(ChaoticGood tendencies) Silver Strings- goddess of music and art
CG(ChaoticNeutral tendencies) Wanderer- God of travel
CN(ChaoticEvil tendencies) Howler in the Dark-Alien god of shadows and monsters
CE(NeutralEvil tendencies) Eternal Flame- Goddess of fire and destruction
NE(LawfulEvil tendencies) Nightsky- God of death, grim reaper style (enjoys it way too much to be tradtional NN reaper)
LE(LawfulNeutral Tendencies) Gold and Steel- Twin gods who oversee economy and cities, thrive in warfare
LN(LawfulGood Tendencies) Father-God of justice Judge Dredd inspired
LG(NeutralGood Tendencies) Grandalchemist-Scientist working for the greater good

There are also patron spirits of each major kind of environment, desert(Djinn) ocean(Tritons) mountains(Gnomes) forests(Elves) plains(Orcs) tundra(Dwarves) beach(Salt/Sandmen) who all have a being whos like a god to them
Advice on any extra mythology?

Well, LE is also about making sure the trains run on time. So, God of Amoral Trade? Nation of Corrupt Corporate Executives in the D&Ds? ...Granted, that's basically the Iron Throne and Zhentarim minus the giant with abandonment issues looking for his devil ex-girlfriend or the patronage of the God of Foiled Plans Himself...
