Support the Project

March 1, 2020

Hello everyone, I want to thank you all for the comments and views you’ve given the project over the years, and let you know that I have created a new Patreon account specifically for the project for those who wish to show their support for the project in that way. A long term goal for the project’s Patreon page is to start commissioning artwork similar to what was found in the Faiths and Avatars series of books as well, and that is listed on the Patreon page. The new Patreon page can be found here:

If you would rather support the project by donating to me on Ko-Fi, you can do so here:

Thanks for all the years of support everyone!


Sunnis the Princess of Good Earth

July 1, 2024

The last of the good archomentals, Sunnis, is the closest thing to a leader the group has. She advocates for a united front against the evil archomentals, but has not yet had much success, especially with the obstinacy of Ben-hadar. To he followers, she is a motherly figure who embodies steadfastness and support.

I want to thank everyone for their support these past few months. I really appreciate it! Read the rest of this entry »


No Deity Again This Month

June 1, 2024

Hey folks, I’m really sorry to say that I haven’t been able to complete a deity again this month. I’ve been suffering from depression these last few months and have not been able to be as productive on writing as I would like. I’ll have it ready for next month, however!


Ilsensine, the Great Brain

May 1, 2024

The terrible and powerful patron of the illithids is Ilsensine, the Great Brain. A deity of pure mental energy, it exhorts its followers to take their rightful place of domination over all other races of the multiverse. There’s been a lot written about illithids over the years, so this one took a lot of research and I’m pretty sure I still missed a lot of potentially relevant material, but it was still a lot of fun to write!

No Deity This Month

April 1, 2024

Hey folks, unfortunately I was unable to get a deity done this month. Strangely enough, it’s hard to write when all you can do is itch after breaking out in hives from new detergent! I’ll definitely have one ready to go next month, however. Apologies!


Zinzerena the Hunted

March 1, 2024

A recent addition to the drow pantheon, Zinzerena is an outsider even among that chaotic and fractured group of powers. Once a figure in heroic legends, she managed to ascend through trickery, and has been avoiding other members of the pantheon and causing chaos among drow cities ever since. I emphasized her more neutral aspects, which I think would be coming to the fore with her recent loss of power to Lolth. Read the rest of this entry »


Ben-hadar, the Prince of Good Water

February 1, 2024

The third of the good archomentals is Ben-hadar, an arrogant and provincial ruler who many believe pushes the boundaries of what is considered good. While he does care for the well-being of his followers, he has little interest in what happens beyond the borders of the Plane of Water. Read the rest of this entry »


The Dark God at the End of All Things

January 1, 2024

The cold of winter brings the enigmatic and imprisoned god of eternal darkness and decay, known simply as the Dark God. Said to have been imprisoned long ago in order to preserve all of creation, mythology also presents it as a being that will preside over the destruction of all things when he is eventually released.

As a bonus, while working on this entry, I thought of a perfect anagram that I slipped into the entry. :)

Darahl Firecloak the Even-Tempered

December 1, 2023

One of the more interesting elven powers, and one who has estranged himself from his kin, is Darahl Firecloak. Once known as Tilvenar, a debacle with an evil artifact caused a great loss of status and led to him reinventing himself and looking outside the normal elven groups to rebuild his faith. Incorporated into this entry is a tidbit from Eric Boyd’s “Havens of Miyeritar,” available on DM’s Guild. Enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »


Zaaman Rul, the Prince of Good Fire

November 1, 2023

The weakest of the archomentals is Zaaman Rul, the prince of good fire creatures and rumored offspring of Imix. Representing the positive and beneficial aspects of fire, he perhaps naively attacked his father’s forces, but suffered a complete rout, forcing him into hiding until he can rebuild. Nothing like an underdog on the side of good to generate some excellent plot hooks! Read the rest of this entry »


Cegilune the Hag Goddess

October 1, 2023

Just in time for the spooky season of October is Cegilune, goddess of hags. She rules the night hags of the Gray Waste and conducts trade in larva with diverse dark powers, while also haunting the Prime Material Plane in search of magic and souls to turn into more larva. With her, I chose to incorporate some of the European legends about witches just as I incorporated some similar Eastern information into her potential sister, Ysshara.

EDIT: There was an issue with the PDF having blank pages, and that has now been fixed. Many apologies! Read the rest of this entry »
