Please, everyone knows the reason Aerdrie Fenya spends her time in Ysgard is because the men of the Norse pantheon are swole as all hell.

Set himself is generally overhyped as a villain. Yes, he is a fratricidal monster, but he's a valued member of the Egyptian pantheon and the protector of Ra. In myth, he and Horus eventually buried the hatchet.


The Realms' versions of the Egyptian gods have a good excuse for being different than their "real" counterparts, though. As for Set and Horus making up, that's not what I would call accurate. Certain royal dynasties saw Set differently than other royal dynasties, which altered his portrayals during their reigns; they didn't have the negative views that previous and some later dynasties saw him. The D&D game can't easily handle these contradictions, though.

The bigger issue I have is that the game associates him with snakes, which is not accurate to the mythology as far as I can tell, and completely ignores the Set animal. To be honest, I've been resisting working on the Egyptian pantheon these last couple months, since I spent much of January in the country visiting some of the spectacular monuments. :)

Very interesting write-up of Shekinester, although as we discussed, you didn't include Ssharstrune, although he (it?) may be just Toril-specific.


He and the whole "World Serpent" thing are post-2e, so outside the scope of the project. I would consider much of that FR-specific viewpoints (much as the nagas have a different interpretation of some things compared to couatl and the Vedic followers).

I also think now Shekinester could have an eninimity, or relation in the Weaver aspect with Shaktari, who is worshipped by some Naga.

Especially that Shaktari takes on may similar themes as Shekinester.


I'm limiting myself to the AD&D material on the Vedic deities until I can do the research I want, and they aren't covered in the material, so I don't (yet) know how they might interact with Shekinester.

Well, if his pops hadn't shafted him in the inheritance by giving all the good land to Osiris and all the crappy land to Set, he wouldn't have had to resort to such measures. It's all Ra's fault, really. ;)

The naga don't really seem to have any bad interactions with the Vedic pantheon. Garuda hates them all, but conversely both Vasuki and Ananta Sesha, both nagaraja, are friendly with Shiva and Vishnu respectively. Ananta Sesha is notable because in addition to being Vishnu's living throne/couch/canopy, he also often incarnates alongside Vishnu to serve as brother or supporter to Vishnu's avatars, while Vasuki - in addition to helping the asura and the devas churn amrta, the nectar of immortality - spends his time coiled around Shiva's throat.

Yes, that snake around Shiva's throat in religious art is actually a naga god-king.

Flying through the skies of the upper planes is the Great Lord of the Eagles, Remnis. He is said to be the ultimate aerial hunter, and with his great eyesight, he spies out secrets throughout the planes. He perches on the heights of Mount Celestia and in the boughs of the World Tree Yggdrasil, awaiting the call to service.

So it might be a bit late but this has to be, without a doubt the greatest work I have ever come across. I am absolutely blown away by each of these entries as I read them. It has been many years since I have felt that sense of pure enjoyment reading detailed and immersive lore I am unfamiliar with especially for the most common settings in DnD.

Thanks for making me feel like a kid with his first supplement book again!

Blibdoolpoolp the Sea Mother: http://bit.ly/2tK3Pzc

Nearly insane, Blibdoolpoolp is patron of the declining subterranean race of kuo-toa. She hates humanity for the ancient wars that drove her race underground, and is well pleased when her followers sacrifice them to her. She is rumored to know great secrets of ancient magics, but in her insanity, she shares them with no one.

I like the rumor tying her to Anguileusis, as well as the one that makes her a daughter of the elder elemental god and sister to Olhydra. I also like the idea that she sponsored the rise of Ilxendren.

Darahl Firecloak? Your own invention?

Man, you put some work into that. Well done. I will have to get t the rest later, but I like it.

Merrshaulk the Serpent Lord: http://bit.ly/Merrshaulk

While still powerful, the somnolent Merrshaulk is in a slow decline. His chosen followers are the insidious yuan-ti, who lurk in ruins of ancient cities, either remnants of their own past or the remains of places they corrupted and destroyed. His lack of direct attention to his followers has led to a usurpation of his power by other deities on more than one world, however.

Persana, Guardian of the Deep: http://bit.ly/2OXzuFW

Persana is the creator and patron of the tritons, having sculpted them from elemental water and breathed life into them. He is known as one of the greatest architects of the multiverse, having designed a wide variety of wonders throughout the planes. While aloof and generally uninterested in the affairs of others, he recognizes that the other good and neutral races of the deep are more likely to keep to agreements and defend allies in need, and so has thrown his lot in with them.

Semuanya the Survivor: http://bit.ly/2SzBYfM

Wrapping up the reptilian deities is Semuanya, the patron and creator of lizard men and their kin. Semuanya is an aloof deity who exists and survives for the sake of surviving and existing, and teaches his followers that survival and propagation is of paramount importance.

Well done. BTW, I'd put this deity also as an ally of Lurue. The way both of them are portrayed as travelling the world, I can just picture a race similar to what you described with Hermes, but with Lurue using gates, teleportation, and other magical tricks to stay one step ahead.... but maybe Linroth finally wins and Lurue rewards Linroth's cunning by gifting her a magical animal companion... maybe a small amazingly fast talking hummingbird? I can picture the two getting into highjinks together and the hummingbird being able to go where she can't. Maybe even the talking hummingbird talks SOOO fast that noone else can understand it except speedy Linroth.

I could see a lot of that. I mainly went with Greek rather than any other connections because of Kheiron (Chiron) and the real-world mythic origins of centaurs. :)

This month features the second of the four centaur deities that were listed but not detailed in an old Dragon Magazine articles on centaurs. Fanthros is the patriach of the small clan of four deities, who all serve under Skerrit the Forrester. Among the small centaur pantheon, Fanthros is the deity of weather, the sky, and agriculture.

Nice last name addition. Also, as odd as it may sound, the holy symbol made me smile. His association to pegataurs as well seems right, and I'd actually recommend asperii as well.

I particularly want to thank you for this, as I was wanting to introduce these 4 centaur deities in Katashaka after you introduced them to me by referencing the article in dragon #103, but to have them cross racial boundaries to several tauric races (centaurs, ram-like "bariaur-kin" as the Faerunians have named them, Hybsil, Nyaalaku <larger antelope folk than Hybsils>, and Zebrataurs).


I'm also just now noting some similarities that may lead to some heresies that could be fun. Basically, in Anchorome there are the thunder twins which are "great spirits" modeled after native american mythology. I was mirroring this in my "Metahel" pantheon that resembles but differs from the Norse pantheon, with a storm god named Thoros who births twins on different mothers (yeah, makes no sense, but neither does Heimdahl having nine mothers) that resemble somewhat Magni and Modi. He also has a daughter that is tied to runes/magic. Here we have another instance of a storm god birthing twins, and one of these is actually a god of strength as well. I'm not saying they would be the same beings, but rather that mortals might debate such. I also introduced another Metahel horse being somewhat resembling Sleipnir with my version of Loki (I've adapted the little spoken of Valigan Thirdborn), which I'm naming Besparr the Many-Legged. Who the "horse" was that Valigan Thirdborn mated with? Hells, for all we know it might be this god, might be Eachthighern, or something else entirely. That also being said, I might even change the concept of Besparr the Many-Legged to instead be a giant caribou with many legs, but have him linked to beings such as asperii, hippocampi, etc... I might even hint that Besparr the Many-Legged is both male and female, as some form of conjoined twin... and thus 8 legs.


Moedae, Lord of Bravery and Mounted Combat, one of the Thunder Twins - This god rides a silver-furred Asperii that can also change into a Hippocampus when it goes beneath the waves. Magnaear is seen as a restless god and he rides across the heavens seeking out new challenges to test himself against. He is the son of Sifya and Thoros.
Magnaear, Lord of Strength, one of the Thunder Twins – Magnaer is noted as being extremely strong and hairy. This god is noted as having a female bear companion, Balanis, who periodically changes shape into that of a woman. It is rumored that her ability to change shape was a gift bestowed by Magnaer, and he did thereby accept the curse that he himself must periodically wander the world as a bear himself. Other stories say that Magnaear received Balanis as a bride-price for a service performed for another deity known as Father Bear or Balador, having come to Balador's aid when he was attacked by a great werewolf named Daragor. It is said in that story that Magnaear was bitten by Daragor and that Balador changed Magnaear's curse by mixing his blood with that of Balanis during their marriage ceremony. There are stories that these two did birth a race of intelligent bear folk, and nearly anytime the two of them are seen they are followed by three young, inquisitive bear cubs. Unlike his aggressive brother, Moedae, Magnaear is known for simply wanting to relax and eat, but he is always called out by foolish giants and other creatures who seek to best him in combat. He is the son of Yaernsacsa and Thoros.

Thoordra Thorosdottir, goddess of runes and truename magic, daughter of Thoros and Sifya – Thoordra is a dutiful daughter who serves to inspire those who seek to employ runecraft. She is depticted in art as a shapely red headed goddess of large but well-placed girth. It is said that it was she that recovered the eye of her grandfather, Asagrimmr, from an ancient place of power. She then delivered it to her father, Thoros, when he lost his own eye. It was also Thoordra who helped nail Thoros to the world ash when he sought to delve the mysteries of his father's eye to learn the mysteries of rune magic. Thoordra listened to the fevered meanderings of Thoros for sixteen days, all while protecting her father from the assaults of giant and demonkind. Between fighting, she tended to her father, bringing him mango juice and cleansing his wounds with water from Eldunna's Goldenheart Spring. She also made note of the many mystical markings which covered his body during these fevered dreams, markings which would change shape and/or come and go as time passed. As a result, she learned much of rune and truename magic. However, she sought more, and so her father and she did plot to steal more knowledge of runecraft from the dwarves. Thoordra did entreat a dwarven god of wisdom, whose name seems to vary, but whose ugliness was brought on by the great size of his egg shaped head. Thoordra proposed that she and this dwarven god should become betrothed to her, and met with him in “secret” to tryst with him and they did make vows to one another. When Thoros “learned” of this betrayal he claimed that the dwarven god of wisdom must prove his intellect if he wanted to claim a daughter as fine as his own. It is said that in his haste to prove his wisdom and thus gain her love, that the god revealed the secrets of dwarven runecraft, and thus proved himself a fool not worthy of Thoordra. He was thus slain and Thoordra absorbed much of his power, and it is whispered that his stone body floats in the astral to this day.

Besparr the many-legged – Lord of horses, Asperii and Hippocampi. It is said by the Metahel that Besparr is born of a pairing of Valigor the Runtborn Giant while in the form of a mare and a great primordial horse. Besparr appears as an eight legged horse of white fur and a silver mane that can ride the winds, but he can also enter the sea in the form of a hippocampi. Primarily worshipped in Anchorome, his worship has spread to Katashaka with the coming of the Metahel. In Anchorome he is worshipped by centaurs, asperii, Poscadari Elves, Metahel humans, avariel elves, and aquatic elves.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

Glad you liked it! I think the hybsils and asperii would be drawn to other deities primarily; the asperii would probably be drawn to Eachthighern or Lurue, and hybsils would probably be drawn to the primary Seelie court and Skerrit in general. Zebrataurs would probably be drawn to the four from Dragon 103 more than Skerrit though. :)
