One of the neogi deities detailed in the article “The Ecology of the Neogi,” in Dragon #214, Kr’tx is that race’s deity of war. It is an unsubtle brute of a neogi, and favored by the umber hulks the neogi keep due to its brutality.
A member of the Inner Circle of the Seelie Court, Eachthighern is lord of unicorn and pegasi. He is both guardian and healer, and his name is a byword for loyalty among the sylvan creatures.
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.
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.
Squelaiche is the patron of leprechauns, and the Court Jester of the Seelie Court. He is a trickster, but his jests and jibes always carry lessons to those they target. He is the only member of the Inner Circle who isn’t related to Titania.
One of a number of minor elven deities who appeared in the pages of Dragon Magazine, Tethrin VeraldÃ© had an abbreviated Faiths & Avatars style writeup in Dragon #236, which I have expanded upon.
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.
One of the outer circle members of the Seelie Court, Emmantiensien is still an important member of the Court. He forgets nothing, making him an excellent sage, and he guards a powerful ancient magical crystal that grants him and the Court substantial powers.
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.
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.
