View Full Version : D&D 3.x Other The Hexal Gods and pantheons

2017-11-13, 10:17 AM
Now, I'm not going to fully flesh these out yet, due not only to time constraints and my energy levels, but also because I need to finish the setting itself. But, to get these out of my way I'm going to reserve a few posts to do this and use this one to explain a few things.


Across the world, people and creatures worship a great number of varied deities. Those described here are the deities most often worshiped among the common races, by adventurers, and by villains. Each entry includes the deityís name, role, alignment, titles he or she is known by, and general description. These deitiesí holy (or unholy) symbols are shown accompanying their descriptions. Each of the deities is shown under their pantheon for ease of searching.

Basic pantheon rules:
Under the name of the pantheon will be listed each of these things:

Magic the Gathering colour
Planet of origin
All domains to be used by the gods within and those available to clerics/paladins of the pantheon itself
The holy weapons of the pantheon's gods
All pantheons have a single greater deity, and two intermediate and lesser deities. Each of the tiers have a single male and female deity, with the greater deity being any that it wishes at any time (functionally genderless at any one time)

Each of the god's entries will follow this format:

Explanation of symbol
Alignment with 3x3 grid alignment; Main colour (secondary colour)
Portfolio: Each of the gods has a number of portfolios based on their rank: Greater have 8, Intermediate have 6, and Lesser have 4
Worshippers and their types
Alignments available to clerics of the god, gods may allow clerics of alignments further than normal
Domains: Each of the gods has a number of domains based on their rank: Greater have 5, Intermediate have 4, and Lesser have 3. Non-Core and homebrew domains will be marked (^) and sources given at the bottom of the post.
The god's favoured weapon.
A description of the god and each of their forms (Lesser have 1 form that they can take, Intermediate have 2, and Greater have 3)
The dogma, if any, of that god
The Temples and Clergy of that god
Various comments after each of the gods may or may not appear based upon various criteria

Because I'm a bit of a bio/AP nerd each of the names of the gods are references to real life genii or species (if possible, some are taken from other TTRPGs or the like) related to the god's created race. I'm going to replace the races over time to newer ones, crafted specifically for this setting as currently I am using homebrew from others to fill in the gaps.

Amatera is a gentle goddess and guides others in ways towards making life better and more pure for all involved. She carefully cultivated the sort of culture and race that she wished, drawing inspiration from the media and myths of her world and bringing them to life in the race of the Kitsune.

She usually takes the form of a tall nine-tailed kitsune with snow white hair that shines irridescently in the sunlight, each her tails are tipped with a different colour that shifts continuously through each shade as it moves, her eyes are gold in colour and seem almost like miniature stars as her gaze is piercing and sees into the hearts of others; she usually wears the robes of a shrine maiden and seems almost unearthly beautiful even in the most unflattering of clothes.

Her other form is that of a massive 9-tailed fox bathed in flames with eyes brighter than the sun itself, teeth sharp enough to slice through Adamantine, and claws that can rend the very soul from flesh.

Do not cause unnessecary harm and do not aid the ill intentions of others unless you are sure that it will bring about a good future for all.

"Even the murkiest of shadows are turned to nothing and their ill workings brought to light upon the rising of the sun."

Clergy and Temples

Amatera's temples are closer to small shinto-esque shrines and are very rarely grand, most are little more than a small hut with a pond and maybe a garden or the like surrounding it with a fox statue inside and multitudes of small bowls for offerings and a trough around the statue filled with sand for the burning of insense. The most common form of temple is just that of a small table or shelf in a worshipper's house with a small fox statue, an offering bowl, and a small bowl of sand for insense.

There is no formal clergy for the worship of Amatera for it is seen as a very personal thing, a connection that each worshipper should cultivate for themselves.

The LeannŠn Claon an Bean (So glad she can't understand irish)
Rank: Lesser Deity

Alignment: Chaotic Good; White (Red)
Portfolio: Neko, Cats, Love, Lust
Worshippers: Neko, Magical Girls, Bards, and all women who wish for another of theirs to fill their bed

Domains: Lust^, Wrath^, Song^
Favoured Weapons: Claws(Natural Weapon) or Claws (Handblade)

Josekoi is a reckless and lustful goddess that rarely takes the time to think her actions through before she sets them into motion. Extremely repressed and never allowed to talk about the way she was, upon becoming a goddess she crafted a race of being that had a culture she wished she'd been apart of before everything happened. Soon after she chose to make peace with the other gods who had become very aggravated at her for creating a race that had little other to do than fulfil her pleasures and give others a reason to bad mouth her. She created two classes which exemplified two types of heroes from the media she loved and presented them to the other gods, in hopes that she could be forgiven. All did, but many are still wary that she and her future antics may end up causing major troubles for them all.

She usually takes the form of an average sized neko with calico markings, wearing revealing clothing.

Do what you wish, so long as others aren't harmed by it, and if you can, make your deeds be grand enough to be sung forever more.

Clergy and Temples
There are no clergy for her worship as it is seen as something that can't be screwed up easily.

Temples in service to Josekoi are elaborate and pleasing to the eye, with many sauna rooms, onsen-like baths, massage rooms, and other means of relaxation and rejuvenation, decorated with great works of art and with well paid bards to sing the songs of great deeds of the past. On the Female end anyways. The men's rooms are much more bare bones but still provide the luxuries and services that the other sex enjoys, even though it is a much less lavish.

Note: She's the one to blame for everything wrong with the Neko, in case that wasn't clear. The rest of us tried to stop her, but that didn't work at all. ...Still trying to figure out how the hell she's in the White Pantheon after doing that crap, I'd be exiled for even a fraction of that crap.

...Wait, my Mary Sue senses are tingling...

The Forge Master
Rank: Intermediate Deity
Symbol: Hammer and Anvil
Alignment: Lawful Good; White (Black) /(I know, I know different from the norm)
Portfolio: Creation, Metalcraft, Protection, Smithing, Stonework, Dwarves
Worshippers: Dwarves, Psychic Warriors, Protectors, and Craftsmen
Cleric Alignments: LG, LN, NG
Domains: Creation, Earth, Protection, Dwarf
Favoured Weapons: Warhammer

Moradin, ironically, has very little imagination. He made the assumption that there are a few certain races that every setting should have, an assumption that was mirrored by a few other gods. So he created the dwarven race, exactly as you'd expect them to be. Moradin carved out the first of the dwarven cities and laid down the dogma known to all dwarves as "Moradin's Law"

Moradin has two forms, but seeing as they're extremely similar, they bear very little description differentiating between them. The first form is that of an average dwarf of a slightly more surly attitude and more rough features than others, clothed in loose fitting clothes and more often than not with a mug of ale in his hand. The other form is simply wearing plate male inscribed with his symbol and wielding a warhammer.

"Moradin is the father and creator of the dwarven race. Honor him by emulating his principles and workmanship in smithing, stoneworking, and other tasks. Wisdom is derived from life and tempered with experience. Advance the dwarven race in all areas of life. Innovate with new processes and skills. Found new kingdoms and clan lands, defending the existing ones from all threats. Lead the dwarves in the traditions laid down by the Soul Forger. Honor your clan leaders as you honor Moradin."

Clergy and Temples
The clergy of Moradin see to it that his faithful keep to his Law and that his temples do not go unkept.

The Temples of moradin are grand palaces of the finest masonry, covered in exquisite engravings and craftsmanship with no two temples looking alike.

The Caller of Twilight
Rank: Lesser Deity
Symbol: The Eye of an Owl
Alignment: True Neutral; White (Blue) (I know, I know different from the norm)
Portfolio: Strix, Air, Knowledge, Messages
Worshippers: Strix, Sonic Warriors, Wilders, Sniper Wizards, Messengers, and those who live fast-paced lives
Cleric Alignments: NG, LN, TN, CN, NE,
Domains: Bird^, Shadowcraft^, Darkness
Favoured Weapons: Bows

Fairly quick to think and quicker to react, Staari created the Strix in his image as quick beings to control the skies. Staari is commonly seen as the "messenger of the gods" but that is far from the case, Staari is actually just the patron of messengers rather than being one himself. Staari surprisingly hasn't done very much since becoming a god, choosing to enjoy himself and revel in not having to do too many things to keep living anymore.

Staari takes the form of a strix with a far larger wingspan than others of his kind, wielding something resembling a gattling gun mixed with a sniper rifle that fires all sorts of elemental ammunition without running out.

"Information is free to all, and should flow like the winds in the sky, one should not inhibit the flow of knowledge and those who do shall be punished"

Clergy and Temples
Libraries and librarians of the highest caliber, not much to be said.

The Eternal Ruler
Rank: Greater Deity
Symbol: Golden Crown
Alignment: True Neutral; White (-)
Portfolio: Humans, Civilization, Daerbani, Protection, White, Safety, Royalty, Creation
Worshippers: Humans, Psions, those who enjoy a safe place to live
Cleric Alignments: All alignment except CE
Domains: Safeguard^, Community, Law, Sun, Creation
Favoured Weapons: Morningstar

The kind and gentle creator of humanity who wishes for little more than all to advance and become the best that they can through the might of their spiritual power. They do not wish for war or destruction, but it merely wishes for no enemies to take the central planet for use as a launching pad for conquest. (Yeah right)

Their main form is that of a completely genderless human clothed in golden, royal robes and wearing a golden and jeweled crown upon their head. Their secondary form is that of a gorgeous woman wielding a crystal staff veritably buzzing with power and clothed in an outfit more likened to a monk and just as glistening with gold and jewels as the first. The third form is a gigantic and imposing form clad in golden armour and wielding a morningstar able to sunder mountains.

"All have a place in my kingdom, and all safety is assured when all are in their place."

Clergy and Temples
Temples to Zariel are usually elaborate and covered with art and elaborate sculptures inlaid with precious metals and stones.

Clergy in service to Zariel are rigid and know what their position and options are in the church.

Worshippers: Gnomes, Artificers, and inventors of all kinds
Cleric Alignments: All non-lawful alignments
Domains: Construct^, Artifice, Electricity^, Insanity^
Favoured Weapons: Hand Crossbow and Electric Gun

A quick witted and somewhat insane god, the creator of the gnomes is fairly calm and collected when not embroiled in invention of new weapons and technologies. Enjoying the wonders of alchemy and artifice, he created his race with the same love as him, allowing them to produce great works.

His first form is that of a wealthy gnomish inventor clothed in a strange white cloak and black gloves with frizzy, white hair. His secondary form, however, is that of a massive electrified monstrosity made of various types of metals and alchemical substances.

"Science is a way of life. Science is a perspective. Science is the process that takes us from confusion to understanding in a manner that's precise, predictive and reliable - a transformation, for those lucky enough to experience it, that is empowering and emotional."

Clergy and Temples
There are no clergy or temples dedicated to him for he prefers to help people that need that extra spark of creativity to get their idea out, however there are many universities that fall under this purview.

The Matriarch
Rank: Lesser Deity
Symbol: A Kris dagger and a coin
Alignment: Lawful Evil; Blue (Black)
Portfolio: Halflings, Thievery, Deals, Urban Life
Worshippers: Halflings, Rogues, thieves, and those live in urban environments.
Cleric Alignments: Any non-good alignment
Domains: Liberation, Outlaw^, Trickery
Favoured Weapons: Dagger

Lictin is the creator of the halfling race and, along with Moradin, Gruum, Zariel, Devmer, Corellon, Skiittrezex, Raazathudin, and Djenni, decided that there were a few races that almost all settings needed. Unlike her younger brother Skiitrezex, she is a cold and calculating woman who knows exactly how to get all that she would want fairly easily.

er form is that of a female halfling clothed in shadows and wielding daggers made of the physical form of the term "sharp". With hair and eyes darker than the darkness of the subterranean realms and skin like the ivory light of the moons that fill the night sky.

"Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival."

Clergy and Temples
There are no clergy or temples to Lictin, but all who take for survival or as a job know to always give tithe to the matriarch or else bad luck will come for you.

The Tidecaller
Rank: Intermediate Deity
Symbol: A nine-tentacled octopus encircled by a tentacle
Alignment: Lawful Neutral; Blue (Green)
Portfolio: Cecaelia, water, aquatic animals, astronomy, architecture, biology
Worshippers: Cecaelia, Wizards, Teachers, Researchers, and those whose jobs require accurate measurements and knowledge.
Cleric Alignments: Any non-chaotic alignment
Domains: Knowledge, Magic, Planning^, Secrets^
Favoured Weapons: Trident

The creator of the cecalian race, she is fairly calculated in her actions and finds a certain amount of joy in understanding and learning the natures of things she can study and measure. Before becoming a god she held a certain love for the writings of Lovecraft and his correspondents.

Her most common form is that of a studious-looking cecaelian woman with hair the colour of fire coral and eyes like bioluminescence in the abyssal zone. Each of her tentacles holding some form of researching implement. Her second form is that of a massive cthuloid beast made of frothing arcane energies and water filled with rage and hatred ripped straight from the far realms.

"Scientific research involves going beyond the well-trodden and well-tested ideas and theories that form the core of scientific knowledge. During the time researchers are working things out, some results will be right, and others will be wrong. Over time, the right results will emerge."

Clergy and Temples
Temples dedicated to Orazef are similar to the temples of Staari, save that they are beacons of scientific research instead of archives of knowledge, with no real clergy beyond the caretakers and researchers therein.

The Progenitor of Slimes
Rank: Greater Deities
Symbol: A drop of slime
Alignment: True Neutral; Blue (-)
Portfolio: Slime Children, Blue, Oozes, Health, Colonization, D'ovis-Anhar, Reproduction, Archivization
Worshippers: Slime Children, Cantrip Mages, those who deal with oozes and are within the healing and consoling practices
Cleric Alignments: Any non-chaotic alignment
Domains: Slime, Cantrips, Sloth, Community, Healing
Favoured Weapons: Quarterstaff

The progenitor of oozes desires a future in which all are equal and understanding of both the physical, spiritual, arcane, and beyond are brought together into a glorious mixture from which all can become eternal and prosperous. They created the Slime Children as a way to help all through generations.

Their main form is that of a slightly iridescent slime over double the size of a normal slime child, the colours of which change to match her mood. Their secondary form is of average size and surrounded by small servants made of her own body. Their third form is that of a gigantic slime-based Tarrasque.

"Physical, spiritual, arcane, etheric, and even more shall be brought into one. The result of this union would be, not the fortuitous result of a series of approximations and concessions, but the harmonious synthesis of multiple aspects of a single thought. The reason being that we are approaching a new age of synthesis. Knowledge cannot be merely a skill or a series of gestures... it demands a broader vision, capabilities in critical thinking and logical deduction without which we cannot have constructive progress. We are going to be contradictory to ourselves many times for the simple reason that we are trying to bring all the forces to a higher synthesis. Different approaches have to be joined together. We are creating an orchestra."

Clergy and Temples
There are no clergymen or temples dedicated to them, for they are present in some form in all scholarly achievements.

The Light of the Trees
Rank: Lesser Deity
Symbol: A light encircled by a monkey's tail A Banana
Alignment: Lawful Good; Blue (White)
Portfolio: Kaori, Enlightenment, Peace, Harmony
Worshippers: Kaori, Monks, and those wishing to live an orderly life and to find enlightenment
Cleric Alignments: LG, LN, NG
Domains: Karma^, Law, Light^
Favoured Weapons: Bo Staff

Dedicated to the journey towards all achieving inner peace and harmony with the universe, he created the Kaori race and taught them the ways of the monk and the way of transcendence.

He takes the form of a kaori with white and aqua coloured fur, wearing monk's clothes and following his ways as he handed them to his creation.

"Calm mind brings inner strength and self-confidence, that's very important for good health. The prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them. Find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. Do not judge the universe. Too much self-centered attitude, you see, brings, you see, isolation. Result: loneliness, fear, anger. The extreme self-centered attitude is the source of suffering."

Clergy and Temples
The temples of Primar more closely resemble monasteries than the temples of most other gods, and the clergy members are merely more enlightened monks.

Note: Primar pissed off Akkrix by calling his race and creations "Abominable" and "Disgusting" so Akkrix got revenge by turning his Holy Symbol into a banana and forever making it so that no matter what Primar or his worshippers try to do, his holy symbol will be a banana. No matter how they draw it, or write about it, or anything else, it will always become a banana the second that their attention is averted even a slight amount. Just to spite "the bigoted monkey-boy". This is why we don't slight Akkrix without good cause, his actions may not be dangerous but they are angering and long-lasting. Also he's a little more butthurt about it because everyone else thinks that it's hilarious and not a big deal.

The Aberrant One
Rank: Greater Deity
Symbol: A set of jaws opening to eat.
Alignment: True Neutral; Black (-)
Portfolio: Changelings, Black, Far Realms, Sanity, Humor, Leisure, Ko'olian, Power
Worshippers: Changelings, Slender men, Ozodrin, and all who research the space between and beyond the stars and aberrations
Cleric Alignments: Any non-lawful alignment
Domains: Madness, Devouring^, Screwball^, Drugs^, Transmogrification^
Favoured Weapons: Tentacle (Spiked Chain, whip, and natural weapon) and Khopesh

Akkrix is a fairly laidback and easygoing god that has a surprising love for mischief and humor. He was the last to create a race and created the changeling race because he couldn't decide on a type of race to create, having created lovecraftian monstrosities and horror monsters for classes he looked around at the others and decided to add a race that could fit in with any of the races created before. Thus, the changelings were created by the whim of the cephalopodic cthuloid humanoid cheshire cat that is Akkrix.

Their first form is that of an changeling with long braided hair, royal purple eyes, forest green clothes with strange glyphs that seem to shift to random places on their attire, and a mouth full of completely sharp fangs. Their secondary form is that of a sharply dressed man with slightly elongated limbs, and a face that seems to slip from the memory much faster than the rest of him. And their final form is that of a massive and horrendous lovecraftian monstrosity with thousands on limbs and terrifying mouths and eyes covering the entire form able to view directly into the souls of all and feed upon the very sanity of all purveying him.

"Somehow you strayed and lost your way, and now there'll be no time to play, no time for joy, no time for friends - not even time to make amends. You are too naÔve if you do believe life is innocent laughter and fun. If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there, for Imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality and in time, even death itself shall meet a final rest. Though I may look it, I am not crazy; rather, my reality is vastly different than yours. Everyone across the worlds are mad in some way, you may have noticed that you're not all here yourself. Keep in mind that when fear slips through the door, truth and sense fly through the window. Oh, and, as a final thought, let not a soul take your own for their possession for it is your own power that you must grow and not theirs".

Clergy and Temples
There are no temples and clergy for Akkrix, because madness is for each soul to find on their own.

The Tomb Born
Rank: Intermediate Deity
Symbol: A gentlemanly skull
Alignment: Neutral Evil; Black (Green)
Portfolio: Oss, Undeath, Etiquette, Nobility, Graveyards, Funerals
Worshippers: Oss, Dread Necromancers, and those on their deathbeds and/or with loved ones on their deathbeds
Cleric Alignments: NE, LN, TN, LE, NG
Domains: Repose, Afterlife^, Undeath, Redemption
Favoured Weapons: Sword Cane (staff or short sword)

A courteous and well-read individual, Drami felt sorrow upon realizing that most things would die and that even though his creations would reproduce he didn't want to feel the sorrow of them passing until they were ready. Thus he created the Oss in a way that they could reproduce and yet continue to live until they were ready to leave.

His main form is that of a skeleton clad in formal wear and covered in intricate designs and using a cane as a walking stick. His secondary form is that of a whirling maelstrom of bones and hatred with a glowing skull in the center that can be seen from the outside attached to a massive glowing skeletal figure clad in the robes of a reaper.

"When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home."

Clergy and Temples
Temples dedicated to Drami resemble lavish places where the tales of the deceased are forever enshrined with massive sections for the burials of the deceased and massive underground catacombs that sprawl for miles. There are no actual clergymen of Drami, but he counts all who help during funeral arrangements.

The Rider of Darkness
Rank: Intermediate Deity
Symbol: The head and neck of her mount.
Alignment: True Neutral; Black (White)
Portfolio: Ganceann, Horsemanship, Darkness, Horror, Hope, Despair
Worshippers: Ganceann, Necroblade, Weeper, those who deal with horses, and those suffering from despair or in need of hope.
Cleric Alignments: NG, LN, CN, TN
Domains: Shadow^, Hope^, Fright^, Speedy Traveller^
Favoured Weapons: Longsword

Tormented for most of her life before becoming a goddess, she knew that she didn't want others to become tortured and terrified like she was. She fell in love with old tales of her homeland before everything changed for the worst and so she patterned her godhood and race after them.

Her main form is that of a tall, ebony-skinned ganceann with black armor encrusted in silver and various colours of gems, her grinning head with red eyes and hair of purple flames. Her secondary form is that of a very tall (large sized) ganceann wearing the same armour from before wielding a longsword bathed in purple flames and covered in skull motifs, riding a huge-sized nightmare.

"I've learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom is what you must do to break free from your chains.Stay positive and happy. Work hard and don't give up hope. Be open to criticism and keep learning. Surround yourself with happy, warm and genuine people."

Clergy and Temples
Temples dedicated to Dulla are open-air ranches and the like dedicated to teaching self-defense and horsemanship and her clergy are masters of martial arts and various forms of riding.

The Dark Hunter
Rank: Lesser Deity
Symbol: The Silver Eye of a Cat
Alignment: Chaotic Evil; Black (Red)
Portfolio: Sarli, Nothingness, Hatred, Destruction
Worshippers: Sarli, Nihilist (technically), and all who wish the downfall of others
Cleric Alignments: CE, NE, CN
Domains: Blood^, Destruction^, Harming^
Favoured Weapons: Daggers and Claws(Hand Blade and Natural Weapon)

This spiteful god wishes for the downfall of all and to drown the worlds in hateful combat between all. To aid himself in this undertaking he created the Sarli as a slave race for him to use to send all into the slaughter. He didn't realize that just because his race could feel his being that it didn't mean he had any measure of control over them.

This god takes the form of a tall sarli with wicked claws forged from glistening steel and wearing dark clothed covered in blood splotches and belts.

"My hatred is a thousand times more powerful than all your good intentions. Those that oppose me are done for - living dead men - not when you stop loving but stop hating. Hatred preserves: in it, in its chemistry, resides the mystery of life."

Clergy and Temples
Literally just dungeons filled with people that his worshippers hate with his clergy being extremely good torturers.

Note: Talk about a freaking edgelord, this idiot should never have been chosen to be a god.


The Mother of Serpents
Rank: Lesser Deity
Symbol: An ouroboros or snake eating it's own tail
Alignment: Lawful Evil; Black (Blue)
Portfolio: Hissi, Subterfuge, Subjugation, Control
Worshippers: Hissi, Wounded Viper, and all those who wish to wish to improve their standing through treachery and manipulation.
Cleric Alignments: LE, NE, LN, TN
Domains: Infiltration^, Snake^, Pride^
Favoured Weapons: Dagger and Whip

The prideful and two-faced creator of the Hissi people, she wishes to replace Akkrix as head of the pantheon but that dream is far off if at all possible.

Her main form is that of a large hissi female clad is blue, black, and purple scales that wields a dagger in one hand and a whip in the other.

"It is necessary to be able to withstand all this, to agree to any and every sacrifice, and even, if need be, to resort to all sorts of stratagems, manoeuvres and illegal methods, to evasion and subterfuges in order to penetrate the unions, to remain in them, and to carry on successive work in them at all costs."

Clergy and Temples
There are few temples dedicated to Serpentus and those are mainly within Hissi cities and town as a token of gratitude for creating them however they get little traffic save for holidays.

There are no clergymen of Serpentus and the only "temples" that ever see service are simple altars created to ask for help in an act of subterfuge or successive action.

A fairly competitive goddess that enjoys more than her share of good times. She created the gnolls as a foothold in the setting and for her to live through them and took it upon herself to make her race nocturnal to enjoy her favorite time of day.

She takes the form of a very tall and extremely well built gnoll wielding a massive morningstar glistening with moonlight and wearing either the traditional robes of a chieftain or loincloth and cropped shirt.

"Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday's success or put its failures behind and start over again. That's the way life is, with a new game every day, and that's the way bloodbowl is."

Clergy and Temples
Temples to Djenni more closely resemble training grounds, colosseums, sports fields, and more. Her clergy are well versed in most sports and forms of combat, and many of the most talented and well-known athletes across the worlds are members of her religion and/or clergy.

The Battle Born
Rank: Intermediate Deity
Symbol: The Head of a Boar
Alignment: Chaotic Evil; Red (Red)
Portfolio: Orcs, Battle, Devastation, Triumph, Raiding, Competition
Worshippers: Orcs, Barbarians, Living Weapons, and all who are going into battle.
Cleric Alignments: CE, NE, CN, TN, CG
Domains: Slaughter^, Opposition^, Fire^, Genocide^
Favoured Weapons: Greataxe

Gruum is one of the nine gods who decided that most settings should have a few certain races. As a god ruled by his most baser emotions. Gruum enjoys the feel of battle and the heat of conflict, and created the orcs with the ability to feel the same pleasure that he does.

He takes the form of an orc with scarred, brown skin and a very powerful musculature easily twice the height and and size of the orcs he created clothed in gladiatorial wear. His secondary form is that of a figure towering above most others clad in armour of all kinds and wielding a massive greataxe inscribed with all forms of energy-based inscriptions.

"Battle is the most magnificent competition in which being can indulge. It brings out all that is best; it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of personhood."

Clergy and Temples
There are no clergy in service to Gruum and all temples are merely large centers of celebration with a sacrificial altar in the center.

The Dragon's Descendant

Cleric Alignments: TN, CN, NE, LN, NG, LG
Domains: Dragon^, Nobility, Magic^, Greed^, Envy^
Favoured Weapons: Crossbow and Bastard Sword

A fairly levelheaded god with a strange... "admiration" for reptilian and draconic creatures. Raazathudin had a personal reason for splicing the sorcerous genetics of draconic creations into each of the races with a seemingly random distribution, thusly creating the sorcerers.

Their first form is that of a tall (relatively) kobold with scales of every colour upon their body, clothed in the finest silks and inlaid with the most precious gems. The second form is that of a large humanoid covered in dragon scales of all colours and armour, with two large wings on his back. His third form is that of a colossal dragon with 13 heads, one head of each chromatic and metallic dragon and a single head covered in platinum scales.

"Where do the evils like corruption arise from? It comes from the never-ending greed. The fight for corruption-free ethical society will have to be fought against this greed and replace it with 'what can I give' spirit."

Clergy and Temples
His temples are vast and filled with expensive, filled with displays of wealth and grandeur that one could easily attain within their life. Their clergyman are well-paid and are instructed to help those that cannot help themselves, with well known punishments to those that don't do so.

Note: He created the kobolds because he came to the conclusion that the worlds needed them, even though I'd already made the Tanarkin by the time he even got the idea...

"The art of war is simple enough. Find out where your enemy is. Get at him as soon as you can. Strike him as hard as you can, and keep moving on."

He takes the form of a (relatively) tall goblin with grand power over other goblins.

"I am patient with stupidity but not with those who are proud of it. By the way, intelligence to me isn't just being book-smart or having a college degree; it's trusting your gut instincts, being intuitive, thinking outside the box, and sometimes just realizing that things need to change and being smart enough to change it."

Temples in service to Skiitrezex are massive places for blood sport and education and the clergy are well known for teaching those wanting to learn.

"And pomp, and feast, and revelry,
With mask, and antique pageantry.
Such sights as youthful poets dream,
On summer eves by haunted stream.
Then to the well-trod stage anon,
If Jonson's learned sock be on,
Or sweetest Reveler, Fancy's child,
Warble his native wood-notes wild,
And ever, against eating cares,
Lap me in soft Lydian airs,
Married to immortal verse
Such as the meeting soul may pierce,
In notes with many a winding bout
Of linked sweetness long drawn out."
