Deities and Pantheons pdf details & RPG Round Up

Deities and Pantheons

“Zeus, first cause, prime mover; for what thing without Zeus is done among mortals?”
― Aeschylus, Agamemnon

In many ways, the deities or gods of your world should be treated as characters in their own right. They have their own desires, goals and abilities. These might be out in the open, such as preparing mortals for the end times, or they could be hidden goals, only revealed to those who prove themselves worthy.

On many worlds, these beings made the planet you are standing on, he stars in the skies. They may control the very air you breathe or can guide your blade to victory. Some gods even work with or against others divine beings.

Take your time with them and use the aspect tables to help fill in the blanks, or, use them as a starting point. Never be afraid to roll again or too pick a result you feel works better. On the flip side, you don’t always have to throw away a seemingly contradictory or nonsense result, as these can sometimes give you the most memorable characters, or in this case, deities.

But, if you need details, or at least, something to help jump-start your imagination and the creative process, then look no further.

Personal Growth in RPGs

Phil Nicholls blogs at Tales of a GM, where he writes about narrative gaming, faster prep and more story. He is currently running a HeroQuest Glorantha campaign in a home-brew setting. Phil has written for Johnn Four’s Roleplaying Tips newsletter and has a selection of self-published pdfs.

Personal Growth

The topic for the January Blog Carnival grew from the origins of the name January. The Roman god Janus was the god of beginnings and transitions...

Bringing up viewscreen now, getting some odd interference and…I don’t believe it. The city is there, along with everything else. I can see it as plain as I can see you Captain, but …I think there might be something wrong with the sensors as they still say the planet is empty of higher life and civilisation. The scanners…are fine?? What?? No I didn’t know about the scattering field…ha ha very funny, a big joke on the new guy…”
