Lendys the Balancer
« Reply #1 on: February 01, 2016, 03:47:13 AM »
Where Chronepsis judges dragons after their deaths, Lendys the Balancer judges them while still alive. He believes in retributive justice, that those who live by fang and claw die by fang and claw. All punishments are carefully measured, however, and minor crimes have minor punishments. While he is hard and merciless, he is fair in his dealings.

No problem! I post it on multiple forums so it was luckily a quick copy and paste.  :)

Garyx the Firelord
« Reply #4 on: March 01, 2016, 02:02:29 AM »
Garyx the Firelord is one of the draconic deities originally presented in FOR1 Draconomicon, for the Forgotten Realms. He is somewhat similar to Elemtia, but whereas Elemtia is a purely elemental deity, Garyx represents the effects and power of fire, rather than the element of fire.

Kalzareinad, The Keeper of Dark Wonders
« Reply #5 on: April 01, 2016, 12:31:55 AM »
Kalzareinad, The Keeper of Dark Wonders was a deity of magic mentioned originally in an adventure in FOR1 Draconomicon. For the last two millennia, he had one worshiper remaining, sustaining him and keeping him from deific death. This ended with him voluntarily merging with Kereska during the Time of Troubles in the Forgotten Realms, but need not be the case in other settings.

Rais, The Cogitative One
« Reply #6 on: April 30, 2016, 11:38:06 PM »
Rais, the Cogitative One, is another minor deity that was mentioned rather briefly in a single 2nd Edition product. In her case, she was created to be a deity for the dragons (particularly silver dragons) of the air world Edill in the Spelljammer supplement SJR6 Greyspace, which detailed the planets in the crystal sphere encompassing the Greyhawk setting. I developed her as a deity of philosophy and logic, with an emphasis on the truths and creative power of thought. While minor, she can prove to be a very interesting deity in a campaign.

Faluzure the Night Dragon
« Reply #7 on: June 01, 2016, 02:34:28 AM »
Faluzure the Night Dragon is by far the most insidious evil of all the draconic gods. He longs for a multiverse that is beyond death; inhabited solely by the undead, and ruled by him and various forms of undead dragons. He stalks the planes, feeding off the life energy of the wisest and the best to power himself and his magic. If there is one force that could unite the good and evil members of dragon-kind, it is the Night Dragon.

Task the Wrester
« Reply #8 on: July 01, 2016, 01:54:49 AM »
Task the Wrester is the deity of greed, the pure unadulterated avarice that particularly affects evil dragonkind. Whereas Astilabor represents the desire to acquire treasure for the status and utility a large hoard brings, Task represents the selfish desire to own wealth for the sake of wealth itself and the desire to take what others have simply to deprive them of it.

Hlal the Jester
« Reply #9 on: August 01, 2016, 01:01:00 AM »
The draconic deity of humor and music, Hlal the Jester was detailed first in the Forgotten Realms accessory FOR1 Draconomicon; but with the release of The Cult of the Dragon accessory, she was described as an aspect of Aasterinian due to the similarity between the two deities. I decided to split the two up as was done in 3rd Edition, in part because Hlal fills the empty niche of a Chaotic Good power in the pantheon, which was lacking without her presence. I kept their similarity as an element of her mythos, however, so those who wish to merge them can do so.

Sardior the Ruby Dragon
« Reply #10 on: September 01, 2016, 03:29:38 PM »
Presented as an archetype of the gem dragons in Dragon Magazine #37, Sardior the Ruby Dragon fit in well as a deity with Bahamut and Tiamat. He was only rarely mentioned during 1st and 2nd Edition, which helped form my description of him as a mostly forgotten deity outside of neutral dragons themselves. Enjoy!

Tamara the Merciful
« Reply #11 on: October 01, 2016, 01:28:02 AM »
Tamara the Merciful was one of the members of the draconic pantheon presented in FOR1 Draconomicon. In her role as a goddess of life and forgiveness, she is favored by many good dragons, while most dragons call on her blessing at some point in their lives when looking for mates, and later for her protection of their eggs and hatchlings. She is the consort of Lendys, and tries to moderate his harsh form of justice.

Kereska Wonderbringer
« Reply #12 on: November 01, 2016, 05:19:12 PM »
Kereska Wonderbringer is the energetic deity of magic within the draconic pantheon, who is said to have taught dragons how to harness the innate magical powers Io infused in them at the time of creation. She delights in magical creativity and blesses those dragons undertaking magical research and creation.

Bahamut the Platinum Dragon
« Reply #13 on: December 01, 2016, 12:35:37 PM »
Bahamut the Platinum Dragon is the lord of metallic dragons, and one of the greatest forces for good in the multiverse. He is a wise being, and a paragon of enlightened justice, the melding of mercy and forgiveness with just punishment. He is the template many metallic dragons strive to emulate, especially silvers, golds, and bronzes.

Io the Ninefold Dragon
« Reply #14 on: January 01, 2017, 12:53:46 AM »
Wrapping up the draconic deities is the creator of all dragonkind himself, Io the Ninefold Dragon. Much like Annam, he is said to be the creator of the universe, wherein other deities have built their own worlds and own races. He is an experimental deity, tweaking dracoform species and their environments in order to produce unique combinations. Despite his experimentality, he is not a particularly active deity, preferring watching to interfering.
