Wow another nice addition. I particularly love those PDF from the FOR1 accessory as they were not very detail to start with.

Sardior the Ruby Dragon

Post by AuldDragon » Thu Sep 01, 2016 9:28 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!

Heh, that's interesting timing. One of my player for my Realmsian Dragonstar v.3.5 PbP game is playing a character devoted to Sardior.

Tamara the Merciful

Post by AuldDragon » Sat Oct 01, 2016 7:27 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.

Bahamut the Platinum Dragon

Post by AuldDragon » Thu Dec 01, 2016 6:32 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

Post by AuldDragon » Sun Jan 01, 2017 6:53 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.

Koriel the Vigilant

Post by AuldDragon » Wed Feb 01, 2017 10:06 pm

Koriel the Vigilant is the patron of the ki-rin and t’uen-rin, as well as other powerful paragons of law and good. He is a wandering power, constantly working to foil the forces of evil throughout the outer planes, while sending his followers to face evil on the Prime Material Plane. He has only a small number of humanoid followers, who look to Koriel as a model of their behavior.

I’ve also revised my previous Jazirian entry and added a shamanistic humanoid cult.

Anguileusis the Abiding One

Post by AuldDragon » Wed Mar 01, 2017 6:31 pm

Anguileusis the Abiding One is the imprisoned patron deity of the Anguiliians, eel-like deep sea humanoids with some sort of connection to Sahuagin. The Anguiliians were first presented in the product Sea Devils, but there wasn’t a great deal about them in that book; they received more details in the last of the adventures that accompanied that product, Sea of Blood, which also introduced their imprisoned patron. Anguileusis can be used in a time-traveling campaign, or he could be released through the above-mentioned adventure.

No, for smaller Pantheon, he often do 2 or 3 together....going back and forth between them.

I would not be surprised is Aerial, Aquatic and Avian be done together.

Yeah, I do the groupings in roughly the same structure as they show up in Monster Mythology, although I split up the reptilian and draconic groups because there were so many draconic gods from other sources.

Surminare the Selkie Queen

Post by AuldDragon » Sun Apr 02, 2017 6:31 pm

Surminare the Selkie Queen is the peaceful and gentle goddess of the selkies. She is a member of the asathalfinare, the loose alliance of aquatic deities headed by Deep Sashelas. She is not a warrior, but fights bravely to defend those she loves.

Oh no problem, I fully understand that.

It was a pattern I noticed that on the first of each month, you would post the new entry...which by the way are always awesome, Thank you for taking on this project and updating all of those deities.

Stillsong the Singing Sphere

Post by AuldDragon » Mon May 01, 2017 4:50 pm

Stillsong the Singing Sphere is a very unusual entity, apparently transitioning from one state to another. What he was before, and what he is to become is unknown. He grants no spells and has no priesthood, and represents a wandering benevolent force throughout the planes.

You know, this would be a good counterpoint to Stalker, who does not have any priesthood either.

I don't recognize the name "Melira Talaren," listed as one of Stillsong's allies. Can anyone shed some light on her?

Well, I made a priesthood for Stalker, so not so much anymore. :) I see Stalker's worship as a "secret murder cult" that focuses on killing those they don't like through mysterious means rather than with weapons.

One of the "lesser elven deities" originally introduced in Dragon #155 and updated to 2e in #236. Dragon #251 had some additional magic-related deities.
