Second Edition AD&D / Demogorgon, the Prince of Demons
« on: March 31, 2019, 11:35:04 PM »
Powerful enough to claim the title of Prince of Demons, Demogorgon is a foul lord of of the Abyss who has achieved true divinity. Favoring the intelligent shallow-water rays known as ixitxachitl, he focuses on domination and the draining of life energy from victims in order to increase his own power.

The most unusual centaur deity is Chitza-Atlan, the Guardian of the Gateway to the Underworld, an interloping undead deity who is said to guard the passage to the underworld and the afterlife.  Little is known of his origins, but he has connections with the lord and lady of the dead, Mictlantecuhtli and Mictanchihuatl, and is known to the Olman peoples of Oerth.

Of the lycanthrope deities, the only benevolent power is Balador the Master of Mead, Father Bear to the werebears. He is a protector of wildlands, and a wise and paternal guardian to his followers. While shy, he is a lover of good tales told around a fire over a shared mug of mead.

Second Edition AD&D / Panzuriel the Enslaver
« on: January 02, 2019, 12:07:42 AM »
Panzuriel the Enslaver is the evil of the depths, partially banished long ago by Deep Sashelas and an alliances of oceanic deities. He raises a rabble of followers wherever he can in order to lay waste to the civilizations on the sea floor, although his favored followers are the kraken and morkoth.

Second Edition AD&D / Fanthros Storm-Hooves
« on: December 02, 2018, 11:34:24 AM »
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 Storm-Hooves is the patriarch 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.

Wrapping up the reptilian deities is Semuanya the Survivor, 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.

Second Edition AD&D / Persana, Guardian of the Deep
« on: October 01, 2018, 11:42:04 AM »
Persana, Guardian of the Deep 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.

Second Edition AD&D / Linroth Fleet-Hoof
« on: September 01, 2018, 03:57:19 PM »
One of the four minor centaur deities mentioned in Dragon Magazine #103, Linroth Fleet-Hoof is a deity of speed, traveling, and merchants. I drew some inspiration from nomadic steppe peoples for the write-up, as well as some elements from Greek mythology.

Second Edition AD&D / Merrshaulk the Serpent Lord
« on: August 01, 2018, 04:23:44 PM »
While still powerful, the somnolent Merrshaulk the Serpent Lord 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.

Second Edition AD&D / Re: Question About Weapon Damage/Target Size
« on: July 01, 2018, 05:36:43 PM »
There's also an interesting element in how the weapons most commonly favored by warriors deal extra damage against large creatures, while those usable by priests and wizards tend to deal less damage. So it also functions as a class ability for warriors.

Second Edition AD&D / Blibdoolpoolp the Sea Mother
« on: July 01, 2018, 05:33:59 PM »
Nearly insane, Blibdoolpoolp the Sea Mother 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.

Second Edition AD&D / Remnis, the Great Lord of the Eagles
« on: June 01, 2018, 07:50:12 PM »
Flying through the skies of the upper planes is Remnis, the Great Lord of the Eagles. 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.

Second Edition AD&D / Shekinester the Three-Faced Queen
« on: April 01, 2018, 04:58:02 PM »
Shekinester the Three-Faced Queen, creator and queen of the nagas, is one of the most complex deities in the D&D multiverse. She has three distinct aspects, each representing a different alignment, with different portfolios of interest, but all elements of her overriding portfolio of Wisdom.

Second Edition AD&D / Eadro the Deliverer
« on: March 01, 2018, 10:25:24 PM »
It took me a little while to decide what exactly Eadro the Deliverer represented, as he was described simply as the patron of the merfolk and the locathah. I eventually decided that he represented the strong bonds of community that merfolk and locathah are characterized as having, and this makes him a good addition to the loose “pantheon” of good and neutral aquatic deities.

Second Edition AD&D / Krocaa the Crimsonfeather
« on: February 03, 2018, 12:06:27 AM »
Krocaa the Crimsonfeather was introduced in Dragon #124 as the deity of the aarakocra. With DMGR4 Monster Mythology, however, he was replaced with Syranita. Combining the pair into a small pantheon required some alterations to his original characterization and dogma to make the pair synergize well, with Krocaa being more of an active defender than Syranita, with an additional emphasis on hunting.
