It's been a while since I had a deity to post, but I have still been working on them! I will have some more to post in the near future, but to start with, here is the chief god of the bugbears, Hruggek the Decapitator. I'll also have another deity ready to post in a week or two. I'll also have another deity ready to post in a week or two. Enjoy!

Query: when do you think you'll get around to Damh? He's one of my favorites from Monster Mythology.

Quite a while. The list in the first post is roughly the order I'll be doing the groups in. Plus, I haven't had any ideas about what to do with him.

Ilneval the Horde Leader

Time for the Orcish deity Ilneval the Horde Leader! Ilneval is a deity of war, like Gruumsh and Bahgtru, but he focuses more on the strategic and tactical aspects of war making.

Luthic the Cave Mother

Today I have the only major female goblinoid deity, Luthic the Cave Mother. Like many female deities, she is a goddess of fertility, healing, and protection... but with a Lawful Evil orcish twist!

Grankhul the Hunter

Next let's delve into the bugbear pantheon a bit with Grankhul the Hunter! Grankhul is a god who embodies hunting and stealth, representing ideals that sort of make him and his priests an anti-ranger.

Kuraulyek the Horned Thief

by AuldDragon
One of the more isolated goblinkin deities, Kuraulyek the Horned Thief is an exile from the kobold pantheon. He is the creator and patron of the urd race, which are rarely used and had very little information written about them, so I had a fairly wide open slate to work from. Enjoy!

Shargaas the Night Lord

Posted: Fri Jul 27, 2012 7:49 am
by AuldDragon
One of two loners amongst the orcish pantheon, Shargaas the Night Lord is master of those acts that are best performed in darkness, the underdark, and darkness in general. He has is patron of those professions that are best performed in the darkness such as thievery and assassination. Enjoy!

Khurgorbaeyag the Overseer

Posted: Fri Aug 10, 2012 7:25 am
by AuldDragon
Patron of goblins as a race, and a power of strict order and organization, is Khurgorbaeyag the Overseer. He is one of the few deities who does not have a strong interest in combat, and instead is a deity of slavery and oppression. Similarly, his priests are not front line fighters, and have a great focus on maintaining social order and castes, as well as training and maintaining slaves.

Jeff

Yurtrus White-Hands

Posted: Sun Aug 26, 2012 1:57 am
by AuldDragon
The final major orcish god, Yurtrus White-Hands is the dreadful god of death and disease. He never speaks, and is avoided by the other gods of the pantheon, who fear and loathe him. His priests are masters of orcish burials and death ceremonies, and intercede with their mute god to head off or cure diseases, as well as using their divinely granted powers to afflict such upon their enemies.

Dakarnok the Raider

by AuldDragon
The small kobold pantheon is filled with a number of local deified heroes and minor gods, few of which are genuine powers. Of those that have, Dakarnok the Raider is by far the most powerful and widely known. He has become the deity of kobold warriors, focusing on destruction and plunder.

Skiggaret the Deranged One

Posted: Sun Sep 30, 2012 10:17 am
by AuldDragon
The last of the bugbear racial deities, Skiggaret the Deranged One is the god of fear, madness, and insanity. He is sent by the other gods of the pantheon to punish tribes or drive them to acts of violence through the fear he brings. He is propitiated by bugbears, but rarely worshiped directly. Those few who do tend to be exiles and wanderers, living on the edge of bugbear society, but too frightening for the members of the tribe to actually kill. Skiggaret was one of the most enjoyable gods I've worked on recently. Enjoy!

Bargrivyek the Peacekeeper

Posted: Sun Oct 21, 2012 6:35 am
by AuldDragon
With a title like The Peacekeeper, one might expect Bargrivyek to be an exile from the goblin pantheon. One could not be more wrong, however; he preaches peace, not between all races, but between goblin tribes so they can more effectively wage war on non-goblins. His priesthood is of particular importance in large goblin and hobgoblin kingdoms, keeping tribal disputes to a lower key or subtly directing blame from goblins to humans, elves, dwarves, or other nearby enemies. Enjoy!

Stalker, the Hateful Shadow

Posted: Sat Nov 10, 2012 9:24 am
by AuldDragon
Stalker, the Hateful Shadow is not fully a part of any goblinoid pantheon, but is propitiated in many local pantheons as a god of death, particularly amongst the bugbears. It seeks nothing but death and revenge, hunting after all the goblinoid races and anything else that lives in the dark places. Its rare followers operate in secret, plotting revenge and murder upon their personal enemies. Enjoy!

Jeff

Gaknulak the Trapmaker

Posted: Sun Nov 25, 2012 8:29 am
by AuldDragon
Gaknulak the Trapmaker is one of the few goblinkin deities with a primarily constructive aspect, being the kobold god of invention, traps, and protective construction. He is reluctantly subservient to Kurtulmak, and is frequently dragged into Steelscales’ ill-fated plots against the Gnomish gods. Enjoy!

Awesome! I enjoyed writing that entry, although I figured no one would use it. I'm pleased to see he'll get some use. Let me know how it goes!

He's very Blackmoorian... ;)

I'm not very familiar with Blackmoor, so that's a pretty fortuitous coincidence. :)

Yeah, that god would feel quite at home in the setting that brought you The Temple of the Frog... :ugeek:

...which is where I intend to use him (having relocated the Temple of the Frog to modern Malpheggi Swamp, and the descendents of the Frog Men have become, over the thousands of years since Blackmoor, the bullywugs that now reside there (in my campaign)).

...as soon as real life stops keeping my game on hiatus, that is.
