I'm trying to adapt the Shinto gods to D&D 3/3.5.
I can't seem to find a version someone else did, and am starting the job myself.
I will look up the myths soon.
The main gods I know I need to have are : Izanagi and Izanami, Amaterasu, Susanoo and Tsukuyumi.
I;m not sure what other gods to include. Any advice?

There is an old AD&D/Planescape book called On Hallowed Ground, which contains a dozen or so pantheons. Among them are a few of the chief Shinto Gods. Around ten or so.

Of course, that's not 3.5 stats (no domains), but they have a write-up, alignments and spheres, at least.

If I have some time tomorrow, I'll post a short version here.

1e/2e edition Deities and Demigods (later republished as Legends and Lore due to fundamentalists attacks on the gaming industry) had exactly this pantheon inside.

My advice is to do this with private messages with the two folks above. This is real world religion and thus not allowed on this board, even in gaming form.

I know, it sucks, but them's the breaks.

The Mod They Call Me: It seems impossible to discuss appropriate D&D stats for different gods without discussing the religion those gods come from. Thread locked.
