Araleth Letheranil the Prince of Stars

September 1, 2020

One of the younger elven deities from the pages of Dragon Magazine, Araleth Letheranil is the god of starlight. He is an adventurous deity that keeps darkness at bay, and opposes many of the traditional enemies of the surface elves, especially drow. These traits have made him particularly popular with the members of the Elven Fleets in wildspace.

Psilofyr the Spore Lord

August 1, 2020

A contemplative and peaceable deity, Psilofyr 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.

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

Gzemnid the Gas Giant

May 1, 2020

One of Great Mother’s many offspring, and the only one to achieve divinity itself, Gzemnid 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.

Diirinka the Betrayer

March 1, 2020

Diirinka 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. Diirinka is interesting because he doesn’t have a traditional priesthood, and has special wizard-like characters called Savants instead. I took this opportunity to “formalize” the Savants into a type of Specialty Priest, but without priest spell access; I tried to match the basic and somewhat randomized way the savants operate in the Derro Monstrous Compendium entry.

Great Mother, the Hive Spawner

February 1, 2020

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.
