A few of the deities have temples that I created within the Io's Blood Isles. :)

Are all of Io's Children mentioned in Council of Wyrms or are some of the ones that AuldDragon did missing there?

Is there anything in Council of Wyrms that AuldDragon has missed?

The deities from Monster Mythology, along with Arcanic and Elemtia are mentioned in Council of Wyrms; those from The Draconomicon and other sources are not (Astilabor, Garyx, Hlal, Kalzareinad, Kereska, Lendys, Rais, Sardior, Tamara, Task, and Zorquan).

I really gotta say, AuldDragon, I really like what you've done there!
I especially like the idea of that pantheon …
In Western Oerik, there's a nation that was once called the Dragon Empire, and it's remnants are now called "Ravilla".
I don't know if you follow that part of the setting … so, I don't wanna go over stuff you may already know.

Anyway, I think that -even thought it's a primarily elven nation- since they have drakes and smaller dragons and half-dragons and whatnot, it would be really cool to have not just Bahamut involved (which, in canon, he is), but, the whole rest of the pantheon, as well.

So, my only question is: there's a lot of these that I don't know anything about.
Garyx, Hlal, Kalzareinad, Kereska, Lendys, etc … I only know about half of them …
Where do they come from? I found some in Council of Wyrms, but I'm super curious about the ones I don't know!

Sounds a bit like the way that the drow pantheon listed for Greyhawk and the drow pantheon listed for Forgotten Realms have some differences.

I take it that you were referring to the Forgotten Realms book FOR1: Draconomicon, rather than the 3e Draconomicon or the 4e Draconomicon: Chromatic Dragons and Draconomicon: Metallic Dragons.

I'm wondering if 3e or 4e has unified the Council of Wyrms and Forgotten Realms dragon deities into a single pantheon...or if they have juggled them around a bit (adding or removing some).

He has been working on those deities for equiceph's years. ;)

I do enjoy a long-term project that does cool things. :cool:

I don't think I've ever seen AuldDragon posting in the Chainmail subforum, in the Greyhawk forum.

The fact that the empire was called the Dragon Empire might interest Coronoides, even if AuldDragon doesn't bite. Coronoides was looking at Forgotten Realms sources recently, to see how differently they treat dragon PCs.

That's something I've not thought of before. :)

There is also that unnamed nation to the east of the Sundered Empire that is ruled by dragons. Having a few more dragon religions would probably be more appropriate there.

And dragon PCs (including dragon clerics) might be appropriate there too.

If you follow the links to Auld's write-ups, it looks like he has listed the source of each dragon deity. But I'm not sure if that is the only source...or the main source.

It might be worth skimming through the later versions of Draconomicon to see if any additional information has been created for existing dragon deities.

And if you want to discuss how some of this fits in with the Sundered Empire, we should probably start a topic in the other forum. :)
