    Default Need a God(FR, 3.5)

    I'm building a Dread Necro Necropolitan(Cha based spellcaster focusing on undead, with a template that makes me undead for massive amounts of neg energy) for a Forgotten Realms campaign. I was primarily doing it because we need an arcanist who can function in a dead magic zone, but while reading the Things I Have to do While Gaming thread, I had an idea. A horrible idea. I had a horrible, awful, idea.
    Make him a playboy. An undead, life-draining, playa who's only adventuring because it gives him good stories to tell. The problem is that I need a patron deity of beauty and the like that also wouldn't strike him down first time he walks into one of her churches. Anyone have suggestions?

    There's that goddess whose name escapes me in Libris Mortis who is centered around ETERNAL LOVE VIA UNDEATH.

    Creepy, but it might fit. Also, I dunno if your DM will let you wedge it into FR.

    Loviatar? Sexy with a side of BDSM? Favored weapon is the Cat o' Nine. Non-good chick goddess, so it might work. I think she's got an issue with men though, but its been a while since I really dipped too much into FR cannon.

    Does the diety need to be evil? If so, Loviatar would probably be indeed the best bet.

    Shar is a deity of loss and jealousy, as well as governing the shadow weave. Instead of making him a fun-seeking playboy, make him a malevolent sexual deviant, hateful and jealous of the joys of life that he's missing out on.

    "You're ready again?"
    "Rigor morits, baby!"


    Take Shadow Weave Magic and at least one level of Shadow Adept, the extra shadow weave feats are well worth it, especially for a DN. Get a Ghostly Visage familiar and have it always possessing you, it can manifest over your face at will so foes who look at you will risk paralyzation. He could also use that to take advantage of women who repeatedly reject him... Remember that he gets Disguise as a class skill, so be sure to make him appear to be alive.

    Hmmm, too gooshy for what it sounds like the OP wants. WAY to Romeo/Juilet-esque. The OP needs someone that's more of a Card. Eternal love doesn't work for a character thats looking for a little nookie followed by ritual sacrifice and souldrinking.

    That's why I was thinking or Loviatar. She'd be more of a use then discard kind of goddess. I dunno if there's anything in more of a male personification though.

    I'd prefer not. This guy is CN with CG leanings, and not really into pain. He's just a guy who loves the ladies and doesn't care what color energy animates them. Eternal Glory may work, but he's much more about Lust rather than Love.

    On FR, it'd have to be an evil deity. Loviatar or Shar seem the best. Not exactly about "beauty", but Shar does seduction.

    I'd go with Shar.

    Ah, that changes things. I sort of assumed this guy is evil, because he's a necropolitan Dread Necromancer. In this case, Sharess might work well, she's a CG godess of hedonism.

    Really, he cares more about a beautiful deity than an undead one. Shar would work, but the campaign makes that impossible.

    Though he's still a necromancer, which could indeed piss off a Good diety regardless of his alignment.

    You don't need a god if you're as sexy as this guy is:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mmAU...eature=related

    well, maybe because no god would accept you, and you'd have to take levels in Ur-Priest to gain divine casting...

    Even though its in German, this guy is HILLARIOUS...

    I personally would vote for Evening Glory. If your character is motivated more by lust than love, you can say that he's trying to find the perfect woman, and decided to become undead to make sure he'll exist for long enough to find her.

    Why would a Chaotic Good deity condemn necromancy or undeath in particular? I'd expect them to have more of a live-and-let-live attitude, so long as you're not hurting anyone.

    I think Sharess (not Shar) would be best for FR, assuming she hasn't been removed as of 3.5 Domains of Chaos, charm, good, trickery, travel. Nothing specifically related to the undead.

    Sharess is a god who very much values life, though. I also heavily disagree with Shar, who wouldn't give a *pbbt* about her worshipper's kinky antics.

    Perhaps a very CN branch of Sune; I recall 2E's Faiths & Pantheons showing multiple different sects of each god's church, so that could work.

    Give a player a fish, and he’ll probably try to sell it to an NPC fisherman.

    Teach a player to fish, and next week he’ll show up with the book, “The Complete Adventuring Fisherman”. He’ll start hunting for some monstrous leviathan to catch and enslave, and he’ll be dual-wielding two fishing poles.
