    [DnD] Custom Pantheons

    Post  Dio on Thu Aug 26, 2010 10:56 am

    Due to someone 'praying to Sanae' it occured to me it might be amusing if we worked out our own pantheon of gods usable for any Dungeons and Dragons campain.

    Obviously the first entry would be;

    Youmu Konpaku
    Ghostly Gardener, Half-phantom Gardener, Gardener of the Azure Sky
    Lesser Deity

    Symbol: Diamond Ingnia of Interwoven Flowers.

    Home Plane: Hakugyokurou
    Alignment: Lawful Neutral
    Portfolio: Servitude, Gardening, Swordsmanship, Duty, Swiftness
    Worshippers: House Servants, Gardeners, Warriors, Guardians
    Cleric Alignments: LN, TN, LG, NG
    Domains: Plants, War, Death
    Favoured Weapon: Bastard Sword (Katana) & Short Sword

    Her appearance does not differ from a normal human but she has a much longer lifespan than one. The phantom-half of Youmu is different from a normal phantom like herself not being like a normal human. She has been seen frequently in the human world, particularly so due to the weakening of the border between the two worlds. She is a very powerful swordswoman who uses two swords, the Roukanken and the Hakurouken. Furthermore, she patrols daily around the Netherworld on the morning and at night. She is very dedicated in her work.

    Dogma

    Those who have a duty to others should always see that it is done as swiftly and aptly as possible, nothing is of greater importance than serving those you are sworn to and you should develop your skills to be of great an aid as you can be.

    You should always be ready to defend your lord and followers of Youmu should focus on achieving both the skill to preform their duties but also those needed to defeat those who would do your lord harm.

    Clergy and Temples

    There is no major temples to Youmu, rather it is more common for small shrines to be made in a hollow or recess of the follower's home. These usually include atleast one depiction of Youmu herself, it is not uncommon for followers of Youmu to keep weaponry around the home incase of sudden need to raise to a defense.

    Avatars
    Avatars of Youmu are known as Myon, these ghostly spirits generally appear as a incorpreal white mass and they may adopt a form similar to a ghostly white variant of Youmu herself.

    Harkon of Seinvar
    Gladiator, Harald of glory, Pleaser of the crowd
    Lesser Deity

    Symbol: A golden tower shield with two spears crossing each other in the back and a gladiator helmet infront.

    Home Plane: Seinvar
    Alignment: Lawful Neutral
    Portfolio: battle, entertainment, glory, sportsmanship, honor
    Worshippers: Gladiators, Warriors, Athletes, Hunters
    Cleric Alignments: LN, TN, LG, NG
    Domains: Strength, War, Healing
    Favoured Weapon: Spear & Short Sword

    Harkon mostly takes the appearance of his favored race; humans. His gender is mostly but not limited to that of a male, as Harkon see women just as able of glory and honor as a man. He will always appear tall, muscular and overall impressive to look at. Wearing only a thick wide leather harness with lots of medals and thropies,leather armour skirt, boots and his signature helmet and cape showing off much of the body, Harkon's face is always covered in a black darkness from his helmet, the only indication of his eyes are the two blazing flame orbs within his helmet.

    Dogma

    Thoose who have the skill, the courage and the pride to fight should do so. Followers of Harkon should never ignore a chance to show off their prowess, be it drinking or fighting or competing in something . As Harkon finds skill and prowess at ones profession a good thing, few hunters take to worshipping this god as putting down a great wild beast is indeed a great feat. Worshippers of Harkon should also focus on constantly keeping their body strong and ready to fight, a wounded man cannot fight or please a crowd,staggering around swinging his blade.

    And one of the most other important things are not to win but to please the crowd, so in some occasions follows of Harkon has been known to let an opponent win if it benefits the amount of crowd.

    Clergy and Temples

    There are no temples dedicated to Harkon, instead he is worshipped through feats of strength, battles(won or lost) and athletic feats. Harkon considers sitting and praying a waste of time when there is honor and glory to be won and people to stun with your might. When a gladiator enters a battle, head held high and pride in his mind he knows Harkon is with him. Lately many of worshippers have adopted the tradition of tattooing the mark of Harkon upon their body.

    Avatars
    Avatars of Harkon are known as Gladios(Gla-dii-os), their most common appearance is that of a lightly armored strong male or female, carrying a tower shield in one hand, a spear in the other and a short sword by their sides and of course a large flowing red cape with the mark of Harkon upon it.

    Name
    Nicknames
    Diety Rank (Lesser, Intermediate, Greater)

    Symbol
    Short description of the logo.
    A picture of the logo, or something similar.

    Home Plane: Where the god sticks his feet up when he wants to chill.
    Alignment: Lawful/Neutral/Chaotic Good/Neutral/Evil (Neutral-Neutral is Called True Neutral [TN])
    Portfolio: Basically what this god is all about, be it war, gardening or hedgehogs.
    Worshippers: People you could see actually praying to this god for some reason or another.
    Cleric Alignments: What alignments of clerics can worship the god (Usually near the god's alignment)
    Domains: Pick 3 Domains from the Cleric Domains list.
    Favoured Weapon: Pick a weapon(s) your god uses, clerics become proficient in it!

    Dogma
    A short paragraph on what the god tries to promote,
    basically it's like propoganda for their clerics to use.

    Clergy and Temples
    Where is this god worshipped? Is it priests/monks/paladins or even druids/rangers that worship them? Do they not have an official holyground and perhaps consider places like say battlegrounds their holyground? Get creative.

    Avatars
    If the god doesn't feel like showing up when they're called to appear or give a message or such - then who do they send? God has his angels, Satan has his demons, Buhdda doesn't bother with such things.
