Agreed. What is the goal behind your project, and what seems like it would be so daunting about it? I'm curious, and would love to lend a hand, at least creatively, if nothing else.
The main thing that is "daunting" is that I've started too many little things and then got busy at work. If I plodded along, I could probably get most of this stuff done by myself.
It is a full stat thing, I was thinking of. I was actually thinking of converting all of Legends and Lore to 3rd edition (including the spells, magic items and things like the Karma rules as well as the domains, favored weapons and so on). So the finished product would be about the same size as the original. (Normally this wouldn't be allowed, but because this is a freebie download, the original text can be use, as if it was OGC, in a conversion.)
Converting the gods (or avatars of gods) is a bit problematic, as I think they should be bumped up in level under 3rd edition, but the domains, and other things that clerics use, would be a lot easier to do.
After all of that is done, I would need to get a new cover picture (and maybe artwork for each individual pantheon) to add into a PDF.
As to the "goal" behind the project. It is partly that Deities and Demigods (3e) doesn't provide all
the pantheons of the 1e version of the book. This could provide missing gods. The 3e Deities and Demigods does use some gods from Legends and Lore and I've thought about using or not using those deities.
I'm looking for a ready to use list of dozens of deities and the original Legends and Lore did that. This actually comes back to Spelljammer (everything does
with me). What I'm after is a long list of deities, where I can randomly pick several different gods from different pantheons, to make a "pick and mix" pantheon on the fly. I figure that if the gods of Legends and Lore were randomly shuffled to give sets of 12-20 deities, a GM could quickly create multiple pantheons for multiple crystal spheres. With this many deities in the product, it would be a while before gods got recycled so much, that people got bored with them. (In any case, you need to recycle gods in SJ to get the Planar Churches and Polygot Faiths to work.)
The alternative way to do this project, would be to chop it down into chapters and put them out one pantheon at a time.
