Great Mother, the Hive Spawner

Post by AuldDragon »

The Great Mother of the beholders is a bizarre being of contradictions. It is a chaotic entity where its spawn are lawful, and while it is the source of beholders’ power, it is also the ultimate origin of all the different breeds of beholder and kin, and thus at least partially responsible for their xenophobic internal wars.

Diirinka the Betrayer

Post by AuldDragon »

Diirinka the Betrayer is the treacherous and cruel patron of the degenerate dwarves known as derro. Exiled from the Morndinsamman for his crimes against his brother and mortal dwarves, he hides in Pandemonium, paranoid that his enemies, especially the illithid god Ilsensine, will find and destroy him.

Emmantiensien the Treant-King

Post by AuldDragon »

One of the outer circle members of the Seelie Court, Emmantiensien the Treant-King is still an important member of the Court. He forgets nothing, making him an excellent sage, and he guards a powerful ancient magical crystal that grants him and the Court substantial powers.

Gzemnid the Gas Giant

Post by AuldDragon »

One of Great Mother's many offspring, and the only one to achieve divinity itself, Gzemnid the Gas Giant is a master of air elemental magic and deception. It desires to increase its store of knowledge and magic, but is intelligent enough to know that bargaining for or stealing such things can be just as effective as slaying for them.

Tethrin Veraldé the Shining One

Post by AuldDragon »

One of a number of minor elven deities who appeared in the pages of Dragon Magazine, Tethrin Veraldé, the elven god of bladesingers and battle magic, had an abbreviated Faiths & Avatars style writeup in Dragon #236, which I have expanded upon.

Oh Sweet!! The Lesser Seldarine!!

Those (and the various Elven Deities of Magic in another article) were a nice, but way too short addition to the Pantheon.

Can't wait to see your take on Tarsellis Meunniduin (and how you'll reconciliate the info from Dragon #155 that Snow Elvs only have Druids, no clerics And the version in Dragon #236)

Squelaiche the Court Jester

Post by AuldDragon »

Squelaiche the Court Jester is the patron of leprechauns, and the Court Jester of the Seelie Court. He is a trickster, but his jests and jibes always carry lessons to those they target. He is the only member of the Inner Circle who isn’t related to Titania.

Another cool addition to the lot.

There so much that could be done with the Seelie Court..kind of suprised that Puck was never made a God/Demigod/Hero

Psilofyr the Spore Lord

Post by AuldDragon »

A contemplative and peaceable deity, Psilofyr the Spore Lord is the myconid deity of community and philosophy. It is an ancient power, manifesting as a type of fungal world tree archetype. It dislikes animal life, seeing them as inherently destructive and violently destructive, although it has softened towards races like the svirfneblin that have proven themselves allies to myconids.
