eities From DnD

WikipediA This text is based on a corresponding article in English Wikipedia.

You can help the D&D Wikia by expanding it, adding appropriate details. You are free to remove this template when the texts become different enough.

This article is based on material by: TSR, Inc./Wizards of the CoastThis is a list of deities of Dungeons & Dragons, including all of the current gods and powers of the "Core Setting" of Dungeons & Dragons. Because the Core Setting is based on the World of Greyhawk, the Greyhawk gods list contains most of the deities listed here, and many more.

Four categories of deities are listed here:

  1. Core powers - Those deities presented in the 3.5th edition Player's Handbook or substantially introduced in the other two core books (Dungeon Master's Guide and Monster Manual). Most of these deities are worshipped by humans. There is a subset within this category called Additional Deities which has deities not mentioned in the core rulebooks but instead in supplements and as such considered additions to the core category.
  2. Demihuman powers - This refers to deities worshipped by core races besides humans (such as elves and dwarves).
  3. Monster powers - This refers to the deities of the monstrous races intended as enemies of the players rather than player races. Whether they should be considered true deities or not is debated.
  4. Non-deity powers - These beings would fit into the previous category, but are not actually deities. This includes the demon princes and archdevils as well as some other godlike beings.

Note that there is some overlap between the categories. Most of the head deities of the demihuman pantheons, such as Corellon Larethian and Moradin, for example, are both obviously demihuman powers but are also mentioned in the Player's Handbook and as such core powers as well. Hence they appear on both lists.

[edit] 2nd Edition and prior

Before 3rd Edition, there was no Core Setting, so the distinctions above are not as clear-cut. For the most part, materials which did not specify a setting were assumed to be at least compatible with the World of Greyhawk if not outright parts of the canon. As such, those prior materials are covered in the setting-specific lists of deities.

[edit] Core (Human) deities

There are over 100 deities in the Greyhawk setting, and when creating Dungeons and Dragons 3rd Edition Wizards of the Coast selected a subset to become iconic deities. They selected and altered deities to correspond to "iconic" aspects of core D&D. Certain aspects of the deities were altered to make them more generic - for example: the "Core" Heironeous favors the longsword (in order to make the favored weapon of the "God of Chivalry" more traditionally knight-like), as contrasted with the original "Greyhawk" Heironeous, who favors the battleaxe.

The designation of "greater" vs. "intermediate" comes from the Greyhawk setting, and is not used in the Player's Handbook, but it is used in other v3.5 Edition materials.

Monster deities refers to the gods of the monstrous races; in other words, those of races that are primarily to fight and are not generally intended as player characters. It should be noted that most of these beings are not actually gods. The dividing line between a god-like being and a true god in the D&D cosmology really seems to be the ability to grant divine spells to cleric worshipers and other divine casters. Most of the beings listed below are actually just very powerful extra-planar beings, though many have designs on godhood.[2]

The domains he is associated with are Knowledge, Magic, and Trickery. The quarterstaff is his favored weapon.

Boccob's priesthood is usually a somber group that takes its pursuit of knowledge and arcana very seriously. The clerics of the Archmage of the Deities wear purple robes with gold trim. Rather than meddle in public affairs and politics, they keep to themselves and their own agendas.


He wields The Staff Of Boccob.

He governs those things held in highest esteem among elves, such as magic, music, arts, crafts, poetry, and warfare. Elves, half-elves, and bards worship him.

The domains he is associated with are Chaos, Good, Protection, and War. His favored weapon is the longsword. Gruumsh is his nemesis, and it is because of Corellon's battle prowess that Gruumsh is called "One-Eye".

Clergy members who serve the Creator of the Elves operate as defenders and champions of their race. They often serve as leaders and settle disputes in elven communities.


He wields Sahandrian, his +5 Keen Speeding Chaotic Longsword, and Kalwynrian his +5 Mighty Composite Longbow (+10).




Ehlonna===[edit] Ehlonna=== EhlonnaEhlonna, the goddess of the woodlands, is neutral good. Her most commonly encountered title is Ehlonna of the Forests.

The priesthood of Erythnul maintains a low profile in most civilized lands. In savage areas, members of the priesthood are known as bullies and murderous tyrants.

He is renowned for his jokes and pranks he pulls on other deities, though not all his victims laugh off his jests. Garl once collapsed the cavern of Kurtulmak, the god of the kobolds. Since then, the two deities have been sworn enemies.

Clerics of Garl Glittergold serve gnome communities as educators and protectors. They teach the young valuable gnome lore and skills using a light-handed humor. They also protect their fellow gnomes, ever watchful of the forces of evil humanoids that might threaten their community.

The religious hierarchy of Heironeous is organized like a military order. It has a clear chain of command, lines of supply, and well-stocked armories. Clerics of Heironeous fight against worshippers of Hextor whenever they can and spend the rest of their time protecting the civilized lands from the threats of evil.
