Myths from a Flipped Faerun

Post by Skunkheart et alia »

A thread from RPGnet got me thinking about what a Flipped Faerun would look like ~ a Faerun in which the gods had directly opposite alignments from standard Faerun (CG=>LE, LN=>CN, etc.) So I started by writing a little bit about the House of Nature, home to two of my favorite gods ~ Lurue and Eldath. Check it out over on my blog and lemme know what you think?

Unther would be a paradise in the flipped world. With two good gods ensuring the prosperity of the land.

I like the normal Forgotten Realms, but this sounds a bit like the Mirror Mirror universe, from Star Trek.

I bet that some people, with normal Forgotten Realms campaigns, could use your idea as an Alternate Forgotten Realms that is at war with their version.

I published some more about a backwards House of Nature on my blog. While the previous installment covered Silvanus's bloodline and the entourages that are involved therewith, this one covers some of the other greater gods (Chauntea, Lathander, Ubtao) as well as a few assorted other gods who make their home in the House (the Cat Lord, Skerrit, Syranita). I'm planning for a part III covering the flipped Deities of Fury ~ enough have been stated in the lore to live with the other nature gods that I'm just gonna fold them in wholly to the House. Not sure what I'll do after that.....

I feel that the gods of nature are bound to be pretty similar to the corrupt Guardians Anarcrothe, Bane and DeJoule, from Legacy of Kain. In fact, if I ever apply them in my campaign, they would have created something like the Dark Eden.
