GODS & DEITIES

GODS & DEITIES

 

A comprehensive chart follows this paragraph detailing all known Gods, their titles, divine ranks and other important information. It should be noted that not all Arkuthian gods are listed below, I have compiled only the ones that exist within Arkuth's pantheon and thus these are the only gods/deities available for worship by PC's, NPC's and/or intelligent monsters.


Legend

  • God's Image: The image I chose to represent the deity.
  • God's Name & Title: The name of the god, the title the god is most commonly referred to as and the dominion they reside over.
  • Divine Rank: Is a simple system used to display a god's overall power level within the pantheon. The highest rating being 10 and the lowest being 2 (sometimes 1 in cases of newly ascended beings).
  • Worshiper Alignments: The alignment one must be to worship the god in question.
  • Symbol: An item or icon used to represent the god.
  • Colors: The color(s) worn by clerics and/or other worshipers of the god.
  • Notes: Anything that may help the DM learn more about the deity in question.
  • Animal: The animal that's most closely affiliated with the deity.
  • Raiment (Head/Body): The prescribed form of adornment for clerics.
  • Holy Days: Highest holy days associated with the deity in question. Sacrifices, prayer etc are more likely to be heard on these days.
  • Frequency: How often a sacrifice/propitiation is made to the deity.
  • Form: The type of sacrifice or offering to be made to the deity.
  • Place of Worship: This lists to most common place that clerics gather to worship the deity, with or without congregation.
  • AB: attribute scores required to become a priest of the deity’s order. “Standard” means that the standard requirements listed in the AD&D© 2nd Edition Player’s Handbook apply.
  • AL: acceptable alignments for priests of this deity
  • WP: weapons priests of this faith are allowed to use
  • AR: armor restrictions for priests of this faith. The following codes may appear:
    a (any armor allowed)
    b (May only wear nonmetal armor)
    c (May only wear metal armor)
    d (May not wear any magical armor)
    e (May only wear magical armor)
    f (May only wear armor made by priests of the same faith)
    g (May not wear any armor at all)
  • SP: spheres of clerical spells to which the deity grants access for his or her priests. A sphere followed by a “*” indicates only minor access is allowed to that sphere.
  • PW: special powers commonly granted to priests by the deity. A number followed before a power indicates that the listed power is granted when the priest reaches that level. Unless otherwise indicated, these powers may be used once per day. For example, “10) raise dead” means that at tenth level, the priest is granted the ability to raise dead once per day.
  • TU: The ability to turn or command undead.
