Gods and Goddesses: Redux
The Babylonian, Finnish, nonhuman, and Sumerian content were removed to allow room for expansion of the remaining mythoi. This work re-introduced detailed information on the deities of several non-human pantheons. Before third edition, there was no Core Setting, so the distinctions above are not as clear-cut.
For the most part, materials which did not specify a setting were assumed to be at least compatible with the World of Greyhawk if not outright parts of the canon. As such, those prior materials are covered in the setting-specific lists of deities. The book Monster Mythology , however, was considered to be canon for core materials for the gods of non-human races in second edition. Like in e. Each deity has a divine rank, which determines how much power the entity has, from lowest to highest:.
Every deity has certain aspects of existence over which it has dominion, power, and control. Collectively, these aspects represent a deity's portfolio. Each deity that can grant spells has multiple domains that give clerics access to extra spells and abilities from that domain.
Which domains are associated with a deity is largely a function of the deity's portfolio. Many deities are arranged in pantheons, which are often led by Greater deities which are their direct superiors.
The individual deities in a pantheon may not be forced to obey their superiors, although they typically respect and fear the superior deity. The book Monster Mythology included over deities for nonhumans. Most core deities are human deities; except for the chief gods of the demihuman races. Certain aspects of the deities were altered to make them more generic — for example: the "Core" Heironeous favors the longsword in order to make the favored weapon of the "God of Chivalry" more traditionally knight-like , as contrasted with the original "Greyhawk" Heironeous, who favors the battleaxe.
The designation of "greater" vs. It is not used in any edition of the Player's Handbook , but it is used in Deities and Demigods and various v3.
Although some of these originally come from the Greyhawk , Forgotten Realms , or Eberron campaign settings , each one is mentioned at some point in a non-setting-specific source. The name in brackets next to each one specifies the source they are mentioned in. These three alternative faiths were described in the third edition Deities and Demigods book. The Faith of the Sun is a fictional, monotheistic religion presented in and constructed according to the guidelines given for monotheistic religions in 3rd Edition Deities and Demigods.
Being monotheistic, it of course consists of only one deity though said deity is described as having two aspects; a creator one and a destroyer one :. Following the Light is a fictional dualistic religion presented in and constructed according to the guidelines given for dualistic religions in 3rd Edition Deities and Demigods.
Being dualistic, it consists of two, polar-opposite deities:. It worships a single deity of the same name:. Similar to monster powers, these are not true deities but very powerful extraplanar beings. These however do not even profess to be gods though many still have designs on godhood. The single unifying feature of all demon lords also called demon princes is the inherent control over part of the infinite layers of The Abyss.
The celestial paragons are powerful unique outsiders of the Upper Planes. They are to the celestials as the archdevils are to the devils and the demon lords are to demons. The celestial paragons of the archons are known collectively as the Celestial Hebdomad. They rule the layers of the Plane of Mount Celestia. The celestial paragons of the eladrins are collectively known as The Court of Stars. They hail from the Plane of Arborea.
The celestial paragons of the guardinals are collectively known as Talisid and the Five Companions. They hail from the plane of Elysium. Archomentals are powerful exemplary beings of the Elemental Planes and the rulers of the elementals.
Although they are not truly rulers of their planes, archomentals like to consider themselves as much and often grant themselves regal titles like Prince or Princess. They are compared in the source material to the archfiends or celestial paragons, and are considered to be the elemental equivalent of such beings. The evil archomentals are collectively known as the Princes of Elemental Evil. The five most famous are:. The good archomentals are collectively known as the Elemental Princes of Good.
The four most famous are:. The Slaad Lords are the de facto rules of the Slaadi race and the plane of Limbo. Though true to their chaotic nature they often do not appear anything like other Slaadi. In ages past some rebelled against the deities themselves The Lady of Pain is an enigmatic being who oversees the city of Sigil in the plane of the Outlands. Almost nothing is known about her; her origin, her race, her motives and her level of power are all obscure, although she is sometimes shown to have absolutely immense power.
The Lady of Pain refuses to tolerate anyone who worships her, killing those who do so. Again; virtually nothing is known about her, apart from the fact that she has the power to slay gods who displease her. These entities are outside the boundary of life, death, and undeath. They are untouchable by even the most powerful deities although they can be summoned and used by the weakest mortal through pact magic and binding.
Binders are often feared and hunted down by "Witch Slayers. Wizards of the Coast C March Although some gods are patrons of specific races, they are worshipped by all, and racial pantheons do not exist in this edition. Many lesser gods from previous editions such as the Seldarine or most members of the dwarven pantheon now have the status of Exarch, a demipower in service to a greater god. These include the deities from the Forgotten Realms , Greyhawk , Dragonlance , Eberron , and the deities derived from historical pantheons such as the Celtic deities and Norse deities.
