Deities and Pantheons

“Deities and Pantheons” was orginally published on 20/02/2017 and at time of posting has acheived an Electrum rating on DTRPG, putting it in the top 8158 products (7.36%) of PDFs they have on there. Along with a companion pdf “Deities and Pantheons – Names & Domains” , which expands on the possibles domains for the deities, gives you a system for generating the divine pantheons or mono-deity for your game world.

This was one of those generators that I had to once again cut so much from or I would not get done in time, putting it on the “Expand at some point” to-do list.



Deities and Pantheons

“Zeus, first cause, prime mover; for what thing without Zeus is done among mortals?”
Aeschylus, Agamemnon

In many ways, the deities or gods of your world should be treated as characters in their own right. They have their own desires, goals and abilities. These might be out in the open, such as preparing mortals for the end times, or they could be hidden goals, only revealed to those who prove themselves worthy.

On many worlds, these beings made the planet you are standing on, the stars in the skies. They may control the very air you breathe or can guide your blade to victory. Some gods even work with or against others divine beings.

Take your time with them and use the aspect tables to help fill in the blanks, or, use them as a starting point. Never be afraid to roll again or too pick a result you feel works better. On the flip side, you don’t always have to throw away a seemingly contradictory or nonsense result, as these can sometimes give you the most memorable characters, or in this case, deities.

But, if you need details, or at least, something to help jump-start your imagination and the creative process, then look no further.
