I too hope the demihuman deities get a write-up.

Yeah, it's lame that we just get ''they're back like the others; use these domains for them''.

Also, for some weird reason Eilistraee no longer is a deity of dance, just of song and moonlight Oo

What? Well, I suppose it's a minor detail. Her followers probably still dance. But meh...if all we're getting is deity X has these domains, then that is seriously disappointing

Not sure still, but that seems to be the case. A general introduction that talks about the return of the gods with the Sundering, and then a list of the deities in the current era, plus their domains. Human gods have some info about them, though.

The Realms overview has a paragraph or two each for the current state of all the major cities/kingdoms of Faerun. The second chapter has a breakdown of the Sword Coast and the North, each city/kingdom has a page or more.

You're making me jealous. Does it say anything about Myth Drannor / Cormanthor?

Cormathor/Myth Drannor get just a couple mentions in the timeline... Cormyr doesn't get much attention either, just two paragraphs.

Technically they are, as they tell you what's the current picture, but yeah... it is just bare bone info, and a big let down from what I've gathered.

Technically, true, but as you said, bare bones. To me, it doesn't really qualify as an update. .

It's rather discouraging, almost as if they were telling us ''yeah, we listened: here are your gods, here are your Mulhorand/Unther/Maztica. Now shut up''.

The Mulhorandi deities are all demipowers now, and receive just a passing mention in the sidebar.

What makes up the bulk of the book, if most things are just a list or a paragraph?

That's still more then Sharess got, she's been left out entirely I hear. Could she be under Zandilar in the Elf Chart?

It weird because her son's back in the drow chart I hear.

Sharess is briefly mentioned in the Erin M. Evans book.

The gods alone, with the explanation that the Sundering brought them back, take about 20 pages. General overview on how religion is practiced takes about 2 pages. Crunch (classes+races+backgrounds+some lore about how races/classes fit in Faerun) is around 60 pages. So we're left with like 80 pages. About 15 of them include an overview of Faerun and recent history (so, further brief paragraphs/lists), so I guess that 60-ish pages are dedicated to detaling the Sword Coast.

Human gods get some small writeups. As I said, I'm not sure whether demihuman ones get it too.

Yeah, that is disappointing. I don't think that Zandilar will be included. About Selvetarm: yeah he's back, but the book probably doesn't even mention that Eilistraee&Vhaeraun are the children of Corellon and Lolth, or that Selvetarm is the son of Zandilar and Vhaeraun, so...

I know they wanted the gods to be more in the background for 5e, but...seriously. They're part of the setting, and a lot has happened with them.

But...I guess I should withhold further judgment until I actually have the book in my hands.

Yeah, and they seem to have quickly summarized what happened in the Sundering and said: these gods are back, that's it, everything exactly like 100 or so years ago.

To just say "they're back" doesn't really satisfy anything. I want the who/what/when/where/how, please. Tome, at least, you can't talk about the mortal followers without talking about the gods themselves, like they have in the past, but we'll have to see what those 20 pages are about.
