Learned Scribe Misereor,

That is an interesting point for sure. I like hearing people's different opinions, especially those coming in at a later point in time with 4e or later to hear their views. Having started in the 80's with Forgotten Realms, I am so old school, I couldn't be turned away from the Realms, and so hearing new views on what got people into the Realms now is fascinating.

Best regards,

It's too similar to Tymora and Beshaba's story, for my liking.
I realize that the good and evil counterparts arising from a common origin story is hardly unique to the deities of Luck, but still, I think they could have tried harder to make something unique.

All the splitting apart of deities was actually the one thing about 4th ed. I liked.

In my campaigns, I treat them as metaphors for aspects of divinity changing, as the world and the rules of the universe (and thus Portfolios) change.

For example, The original Io as one of the oldest gods was said to have been of all alignments. That would makes sense, if he existed before alignments existed as we know them today. When Good and Evil began emerge as separate concepts (as described in the history of the Blood War), why wouldn't a god that previously encompassed both split along those lines too?
