While looking for a Finnish God family tree (no easy task), I came across a page that might interest some of you, especially those of us who are working on regions outside of Faerûn.

Illustrations of the world's Pantheons.

Not sure where thats originally from - looks like a comic book. I notice the Big Ones aren't there (Norse and Greek/Roman), and yet, the Egyptians are.

I like some of the unexpected ones, like the Hawaiian pantheon, and the Philippines (Diwata/moro) ones.

I personally like the write-ups on godchecker.com, though pantheon.org is a far more informative site.

Tbh, it looks like something from Marvel comics, probably 90s or earlier.

Finnish god Family tree?
Seen in Kalevala, and the stories of creation, and origin of Väinämöinen? Especially creation stories could hold clues, too.

Along those lines, I've been so tempted to buy this several times. Its very cute. I giggle everytime I see "Loki" and "A Horse" ... and then right next to that the multiple mothers who gave birth to Heimdall

Oh damn, I'd love to buy that. I don't see it available on amazon. Was it just pictures, or did it give info?
