Deities_and_Demigods

by ian.thomson, Jan 1,2010
Many evil and chaotic evil deities presented here would have been worshipped alongside the good and lawful good deities. In particularly harsh times, the cults of the malign gods might have had sway over the population, and human sacrifice, forced prostitution, simony, and religious wars become common. At other times, the majority of priests of malign gods are there to appease these necessary gods and prevent their ire. However, a couple of pantheons (the Fiends and the Great Old Ones in particular) are set up as a resource for malign deities (although a lawful good priest of Yog-Sothoth would be possible if odd).
Why do many of these deities have four, five, or even six domains? Well, these were mostly done from the notes I compiled for 3rd edition, which had dozens of domains so each deity generally had at least five. I have trimmed them down in many cases. For example, if a deity had the Law and Good domains, then I usually figured Justice was appropriate.
Why are some domains repeated over and over? Some of them reflect basic human needs (Life), some reflect that religion is a means of social control (Civilization), some reflect common themes in a religion (Sun), some represent both needs and fears (Storm could help the crops or destroy them). It also makes it easier to say "well, I'll just be a priest of X pantheon."

  • Algonquian Manitou
Gitche Manitou (sometimes just Manitou) was the Great spirit of Algonquian belief, and individual Manitou were believed to be creations or manifestations of Manitou. Gitche Manitou is the basis for the universe, so divine power represents a pantheistic belief while primal power represents an animistic belief.

  • Basque pantheon
The Basque people live in an area on the northern part of Spain and the southwestern part of France, and are unrelated to the Indo-Europeans. This makes their language and religion distinct from the surrounding cultures and gives us snapshots of Iberia's mythology before the Celts came at around 500 BC. Christianization in Basque country occured somewhere between the fourth and twelfth centuries. The wide range is a result of disagreement over what really makes Christianization. Those that hold to earlier dates point to the presence of Christianity, possibly combining their gods with saints and angels, and rededicating old rituals to those figures and to Christ. Those holding to later dates point out that large scale conversion did not appear to take place, since bishops were never sent from there and even commented on failed missions in the area, Arab authors labelled them as pagans, and some cemeteries existed totally devoid of any Christian symbols. Some point out that the Basque people suffered more under the hands of the Inquisition, showing larger presence of pagan traditions among Basque practices, but others point out that the Inquisitioners often made up charges. It is likely that Christianity arrived early, syncretised over time, was present alongside Basque paganism until the twelfth century, and syncretist forms remained for a few centuries after. Strabo wrote that the Basques practiced sacrifices of male goats and humans, to what extent this took place might be the result of rumors against a "barbarian" race.
Adur is an abstract form of luck or magic, comparable to the Polynesian Mana. Arcane characters would be considered to have a lot of this in themselves, divine characters would be working with figures with powerful Adur (after all, they are gods), and primal characters would be working with a number of small figures with noticable Adur. Also present in the myths are the Basajaunak (-ak is the Basque plural form, cave and forest spirits that taught agriculture and ironworking, either elves, dwarves, or wilden), Iratxoak (small benevolent figures that help with farming, possibly halflings), Galtzagorriak (a hyperactive and mischievous spirit, usually considered a type of Iratxoak, possibly Gnomes). One dark possibility for a campaign might be that the Iratxoak and the Galtazogorriak are actually not helpful but slaves, or perhaps they are helpful, but the Romans or other people are taking them as slaves. Other creatures include Lamiak (a type of water nypmh), Jentilak, and Mairuak. Jentilak and Mairuak were two types of giant that built large toneworks, Mairuak living in the water. Their names are derived from the words Gentile and Moor, and they are likely a later Christianized form of old legends of giants remade to represent the pre-Christian Basques and non-Christian invaders. The Jentilak were said to have seen a star in the sky heralding the birth of Christ (or Kixmi in Basque) as heralding the end of their age, but they still helped defend the Basques from foreign invaders by throwing rocks at them. The Sorginak are assistants of Mari, usually associated with witchcraft.
-Aatxe - A malevolent shapeshifting bull-man that comes out of his cave at night to slay criminals and mean people.

The Celts were present not only in the Britain and Ireland, but Well into the Roman Empire occupied most of what is now Spain (Iberia), France (Gaul), Germany (which started to experiance migrations from Norse Scandinavians around the time of the Empire), and even the Balkans (the Scordisci) and Galatia (in the middle of modern Turkey). Most of what we know of as Celtic mythology is actually Irish and Welsh. British and Continental Celtic nations were prone to syncretism, and the Romans were more than glad to tell them what gods they were "really" worshipping.

  • Celtic pantheon (Continental and British)
Includes additional deities worshipped by the Iberians, the Gauls, and other celts. Pantheons varied from tribe to tribe, with Belenus, Brigit, Cernunnos, Epona, Lugh (as Lugus), and Ogmha (as Ogmios) being present among most tribes. British Celts for the most part worshipped the figures known in Irish mythology, but also included Esus, Taranis, and Toutatis, gave more worship to Nuadu (as Nodens), and included Roman deities (especially the imported Mithraic Mysteries), which the Irish did not appear to do. Iberian Celts might add in some Basque deities to their pantheon, some northern Gauls might include Norse gods, both will likely include Roman gods (at least in combined form). Celts in the Balkans (such as the Scordisci) might include Thracian deities, while those in Anatolia (the Galatians) might include Zoroastrian figures and religious elements similar to Georgian, Armenian, or Ossetian beliefs, and both groups will include Greek elements.

  • Cherokee spirits
The Cherokee were monotheistic worshippers of Yowa, whose name only priests were allowed to say on special days. Other spirits were respected or feared, but not worshipped. These spirits were refered to as gods in English for lack of a better known term, but their role is closer to what Europeans would have thought of as archangels.

  • Chinese beliefs
Chinese religious beliefs influenced neighboring regions a great deal. These figures may be found not only in China, but in Japan, Korea, or south in the Khmer empire.
--Chinese Buddhism - Chinese Buddhism developed from the original Indian Buddhism, which can be represented by the standard Buddhism entry here, perhaps incorporating Indra, Mitra, and Brahma as guardians. The former is especially appropriate in the case of Theravada Buddhism, which rejects all but Siddhartha Gautama and the coming Maitreya Buddha as being enlightened but rejects the idea that they are savior figures. The latter is especially appropriate in the case of Mahayana Buddhist (which spread into China), which accepts that other figures sometimes known as gods might help one to enlightenment.
-Amitabha - Good. Amitabha is the principle buddha in the Pure Land sect, which teaches that Amitabha (Amida-Butsu in Japanese) has decided to hold off on attaining Nirvina to maintain "Buddha-Field" where those that call upon Amitabha before dying will be reborn into a life where enlightenment is inevitable.
-Buddhism - Unaligned. Started by Siddhartha Gautama in India, Buddhism slowly trickled into China due to traders, Mongolian nomads, and missionaries; but didn't become widely recognized in China until the first century. Buddhism advocated both dropping out to cease existing to eliminate suffering (unaligned) but being benevolent (good). Part of Buddhism's acceptance in China was due to its ability to work in the existing philosophies (lawful good), although Buddhism and Taoism were initially rivals (those outside both groups tended to view Buddhism as a type of foreign Taoism, however). Barbarian nomads also took to Buddhism, but did not particular care for the Confucian or Taoist additions. This barbarian Buddhism or perhaps a native nihilistic version could be used to play evil or chaotic evil Buddhists. Buddhism eventually spread into Japan in the fifth century, bringing Confucian and Taoist beliefs with it. Japanese Buddhists often identify the Kami and Buddhas with each other, although whether they are two expression of another higher power or one is an expression of the other is anyone's guess. Eventually spread into Southeast Asia and the Khmer empire around the 10th century, bringing Confucianism with it and syncretizing with Hinduism.
-Budai - Good. A Chinese Zen Buddhist monk, known for and depicted as being particularly overweight (as a symbol of contentment). Known in Japan as Hotei and as one of the seven lucky gods (of Lawful Good or Good alignment).
-Guan-Yin - Lawful Good. Female boddhisotva (a buddha who has delayed attaining Nirvana to help the world) who vowed free all sentient beings from the cycle of constant reincarnation, probably started as a Taoist figure that was incorporated into Buddhism to make it acceptable to China. This figure is known as Kannon in Japan.
-Yama - Unaligned. Originally a Hindu God of the dead, imported into China and (as Emma) Japan with Buddhism.
--Gods
-Emperor - Unaligned. Any given emperor might be of any alignment, although they are likely to be Lawful Good if they are not Unaligned. The Chinese emperor is either regarded as the Son of Heaven or as acting on behalf of the Son of Heaven, with the more educated tending to hold the latter view. The Japanese emperor is regarded as a descendant of the goddess Amaterasu. The Khmer Empire regarded their emperors as the descendants of of gods, and temples were regularly built for them.
-Shang Di - Lawful Good. Shang Di was the main deity in Chinese religion and often identified with Tien. Paladins serving the Chinese emperor may be dedicated to Shang Di or Tien, as Mencius hinted that the person sitting on the imperial throne is a regent acting on behalf of the Son of Heaven, who in turn is going follow Shang Di/Tien. Tien and Shang Di were pretty much synonymous in Chinese thinking, but the name Tien was used by the philosopher Mozi in a way that Tien will be treated as having a different alignment. Shang Di pretty much stayed in China.
-Tien - Good. Tien and Shang Di were generally regarded as the same figure, although the philsopher Mozi consistantly used the name Tien over the name Shand Di. Mozi held that the rituals Confucius advocated were useless, and that people should reflect on one's actions to gain self-knowledge. He advocated ascetism and while he did call for people to come together for the greater good, he stood against a number of institutions that the Chinese viewed as necessary. Mozi's philosophy was no longer held by any notable person in society after a couple of centuries, but his philosophy remained important and influential throughout the Warring States period. Tien also is the Chinese cognate for the Mongolian high God Tengri. Tien means "Heaven," but the Tien will be used to refer to the being and Heaven to the place.
-Other deities came about originally as spirit officers in Shang Di's heavenly administration (after all, the emperor has administrators, and China is a reflection of Heaven on Earth). A short description will be given with each deity along with their alignment and domains.
--Philosophy
-Confucius - Lawful Good. The Chinese philosopher Confucius did not so much create the philosophy he is named after as compile it. He could be summed up as a benevolent conserative, teaching that as children should obey their elders, so should people obey their government, and the government obey their emperor. The emperor, in turn, must obey Shang Di/Tien, who was concerned with the common people. If the emperor failed to look out for the common people, he would lose the Mandate of Heaven, and the people were allowed to remove him from his throne. How this was to be accomplished Confucius did not spell out, but most Confucians did view open rebellion as an acceptable last means. Despite this, Confucius regarded etiquette, rituals, and law, whenever it didn't harm people, to be a good thing. Confucianism came to Japan as a sort of package deal with Buddhism.
-Han Feizi - Evil. Han Feizi was a student of the Confucian Xun Zi, who disgreed with Mencius in believing that humans were inherently evil and laws were created to prevent them from destroying everything. Han Feizi removed the concept of the Mandate of Heaven from this and focused on the Tao instead, holding that the emperor's will was a manifestation of the Tao and therefore disobeying the law is rebellion against existance. Although focused on maintaining peace, the ends justified the means for Han Feizi too much to be considered even unaligned. Although not a deity, treat dedicated followers of his philosophy as worshippers of Bane.
-Lao-Tzu - Good. Lao-Tzu was a rival of Confucius that discussed (but did not create) the concept of the Tao. His philosophy can (for better or worse) be summed as "go with the flow," in this case, the Tao. Lao-Tzu did not regard state education as a good thing, instead he thought that peopel should simply live their lives without society restricting them from calm meditation. This is not to say he advocated overthrow of the government, since doing stuff probably isn't going with the flow.
-Mencius - Good. A student of Confucius that believed humans were inherently good. Because of this, he did not view rules as completely necessary, indeed, he acknowledged that they can keep a person from being good.
-Tao - Unaligned. The Tao is an old Chinese concept that was discussed, but not created, by Lao-Tzu. The Tao is the source and maintainer of all things. From it are the concept of Yin (the stagnant order of earth) and Yang (the creative but destructive chaos of heaven). Some people say that Yin and Yang are good and evil, but when asked to explain what good and evil are, they discuss order (either stagnant or protective) and chaos (either free or destructive). By definition, good is whatever is excellent, honorable, meritous, which under a Taoist viewpoint would mean balance between Yin and Yang, not favoring one over the other. As such, the Tao could be described as good, except that Han Feizi used the concept of the Tao to justify strict enforcement of the law (since it is a part of the Tao, nothing good can come from resisting it). Many groups that could be considered anarchist also used the Tao to justify their philosophy, on the grounds that the Emperor interfered with the Tao, and some of the groups would have been regarded as chaotic evil by the rest of Chinese society. Because of this, the Tao will be considered unaligned, with the somewhat benevolent Lao-Tzu and the harsh Han Feizi given their own alignments. Those that follow the Tao might be of any alignment, although Lawful Good characters are more likely to be Confucian. This concept came to Japan and Southeast asia with Confucianism.

  • Dreamlands pantheon (worshipped alongside the Great Old Ones)
Those marked with a L are mentioned in Lovecraft's works. The rest come from Sandy Peterson, Robert Bloch, or later figures.
-Ariel, The Truth Bearer: God of Truth, Worshipped by Messengers, judges, Symbolized by a human figure radiating white light. Represented by a man radiating a bright white light. His cult is not large, as few are willing to face the truth, much less embrace it fully. Many of his followers are employed as messengers, for their reputations for never lying. If a priest of Ariel lies, he will lose his clerical powers until he makes proper atonement.
-Bast, Goddess of Cats: Goddess of Cats, different domains in the Dreamlands, Worshipped by Ailurophiles, pleasure-seekers, Symbolized by a cat or a cat-headed woman. She was once worshipped as a goddess of the home and of war, but her cult has dwindled. The cats of Earth's Dreamlands are her primary followers, though some humans (especially in Ulthar) still revere her, as do some nonhumans.
L-Bokrug, the Water Lizard: God of Ib, Worshipped by Inhabitants of Mnar, Symbolized by a blue-green lizard. Bokrug appears as a gigantic blue-green lizard. He destroyed Sarnath after the humans there slaughtered his nonhuman worshippers. Ever since, the men of Mnar have pacified him with regular offerings.
-Hagarg Ryonis, the Lier-in-Wait: Goddess of Divine Retribution, Worshipped by Assassins, Symbolized by the image of the Lier-in-Wait. Hagarg is probably as beautiful as her fellow Great Ones, but is never depicted in any form except the Lier-in-Wait, a clawed, reptilian horror with randomly-placed eyes. She is rarely worshipped herself, but is sent to punish those who have offended the Great Ones.
-Karakal, Master of the Flames: God of Fire, Worshipped by Wizards, seers, those dwelling near volcanoes, Symbolized by a half-nude man encircled in flames. He is primarily worshipped by wizards and by people living near volcanoes. His priests keep an eternal flame burning in all his shrines, and often use fire as an oracle.
-Lilith, Queen of the Night: Goddess of Fertility, Worshipped by Wizards, witches, druids, lovers, courtesans, Symbolized by a woman's lips. Lilith is a primal force of procreation and fertility. She is an infamous seducer, and the mother of monsters.
L-Lobon: God of Peace, Worshipped by Diplomats, pacifists, Symbolized by a spear. Represented as a bearded youth in white samite, wearing an ivy crown and carrying a spear. This spear is an emblem, not a weapon; Lobon is a pacifist. Like those of his brothers Tamash and Zo-Kalar, Lobon's cult has never recovered from the destruction of Sarnath, the cult's original center.
-N'tse-Kaambl, Shatterer of Worlds: Goddess of War, Worshipped by Monks, warriors, monster-slayers, Represented as a beautiful woman wearing a helmet and shield and carrying a spear. She is the creator of the Elder Sign, which is emblazoned on her shield. She has little to do with humans, devoting her time to wars against the other races of gods, particularly the evil, hidden Outer Gods.
L-Nasht: God of Lore, Worshipped by Dreamers, commoners, scholars, Represented as a man in robes and an Egyptian-style headdress. He guards the Cavern of Endless Flame between the waking and dream worlds, and instructs new dreamers on proper etiquette in the Dreamlands. He is worshipped by some natives of that plane, but his clerics are always human. (Dreamers of other races are thought to use other portals to the Dreamlands.) His fellow priest-sentry, Kaman
-Thah, is not worshipped, but is considered an avatar of Nasht.
L-Nath-Horthath, God of Celephais: God of Celephais, Worshipped by City-dwellers (esp. Celephais), Symbolized by a crowned man riding a lion. Represented as a jet-black-skinned man with blond hair and silver eyes, and always riding a lion. He is the patron god of Celephais, but has small groups of worshippers elsewhere. He is easily angered by those who are not his worshippers, but is very patient and attentive to those who are.
-Nereus, The Old Man of the Sea: God of the Sea, Worshipped by Seafarers of all sorts, Symbolized by a trident. Depicted as an old but powerfully built man (or merman) wielding a trident. he helps those who worship him, but like his watery domain, he can be rather unpredictable. He is a shapechanger and oracle, and father of the Nereids (sea nymphs).
L-Nodens, Lord of the Great Abyss: God of the Great Abyss, different domains in the Dreamlands, Worshipped by Explorers, sages, hermits, Symbolized by a seashell and dolphin. Represented as an old, gray-beared man riding a seashell chariot pulled by fantastic beasts. Nodens is a god of hidden places and travel, and his most favored worshipers sometimes accompany him on his journeys. He is served by the nightgaunts, who guard certain sacred places from the prying eyes of mortals.
L-Oukranos: God of the River Oukranos, Worshipped by Dwellers in the Oukranos valley, Symbolized by a man standing in a river. Oukranos is the god of the river of the same name, in the western Dreamlands. Those who have once visited his beautiful valley sometimes continue to honor him.
-Robigus, God of Rust: God of Fungi, Worshipped by Farmers, forest-dwellers, bards, Symbolized by a white mushroom. Robigus appears as a handsome man attended by a horse, a wolf and a woodpecker. He controls fungi of all kinds, so is therefore most often worshiped by farmers hoping to avoid blights, and by dwellers in enchanted forests. He is a patron of music, but easily irked by unskilled attempts.
L-Tamash, God of Illusions: God of Illusions, Worshipped by Wizards, sorcerors, Symbolized by a blue wand or staff. Represented as a silver-skinned, black-bearded man wearing cloth-of-gold and a laurel wreath, and carrying a staff of lapis lazuli. Like those of his brothers Lobon and Zo-Kalar, Tamash's cult has never recovered from the destruction of Sarnath. However, as patron of wizards, he will always have followers.
L-Zo-Kalar, Ruler of Life and Death: God of Life and Death, Worshipped by Healers, rogues, necromancers, Symbolized by a white face. Represented as a tall, thin man with bone-white skin and hair. His eyes and clothes are black. As god of birth and death, he oversees each person's life story. However, like those of his brothers Tamash and Lobon, Zo-Kalar's cult has never recovered from the destruction of Sarnath. He is also a god of darkness, and is attended by Shades.

  • Fiends
In a campaign on earth, these figures are either fallen angels, spirits born from Adam and Lilith, spirits born from angels and humans, or demons created to carry out tests and judgements from God. In other campaigns, these could be something from the far realms, or demons or devils (depending on alignment). An individual may gain the use of a fiend's domain feat as a daily power by engaging in a ritual (costing 500 GP to learn the first time, 30 gp after for each new fiend, 50 to perform) that requires the permanent loss of a wisdom point and a wisdom check (DC 20) to avoid having their alignment changed to that of the fiend. The alignment may only be changed back by another character who performs a ritual (exorcism) that is almost identical (except the target loses a wisdom point if the ritual caster fails the check, but the ritual succeeds unless they fail by more than 10). If an exorcism is performed, the character loses the ability to use the power granted by that fiend, but may reperform the ritual.

Gnostics divine characters are frequently multiclassed as arcane or psionic characters, and the ritual to gain a fiend's domain feat is usually performed as an initiation for non-divine characters.

  • Hinduism and Indian religion - By no means comprehensive
India is part of Asia, a rather large one at that. India was responsible for Buddhism (detailed in Chinese beliefs), which was influential throughout Asia. Hinduism also spread into south east continental Asia, being the inspiration behind the building of a number of temples in Angkor in Cambodia. Indian Buddhism does not feature Amitabha, Budai, Guan-Yin, or Jizo; although Brahma, Indra, and Yama may appear, and Mitra may have been the inspiration for the Maitreya Buddha (a figure that Siddhartha Gautama said would come in the future to help all people). Indian religions besides Hinduism and Buddhism include Sikhism and Jainism. Sikhism is a combination of Hinduism's belief in reincarnation and dharma with Islam's monotheism and iconoclasm, its one God is refered to as Wariguru (see Monotheism). Sikhs wear a turban, small ceremonial dagger (really small, it may not even deal damage if the player decides not to buy a dagger), iron bracelet, a small comb, and a special undergarment. Jainism is a religion similar to but older than Buddhism, which does not affirm the existance of a deity but sees all life as sacred. It teaches non-violence (which could mean that no PC Jains, or it could mean no martial PC Jains), truth, not stealing (this includes paying what is due in wages and other things), celibacy (monks and nuns only, laypeople practice monogamy), and non-possession (practiced by monks and nuns, laypeople practice non-attachment).
Outside of India, Indra, Mitra, and Varuna were worshipped by the Mitanni and the Hurrians, cultures between the Hittites and Babylonians. The Mitanni became the forerunners of Urartu. Hinduism is also related to Zoroastrianism, both religions originally came from an older Indo-Iranian pantheon (of which there was probably a schism, since they take opposing views over sacrifice of cattle, and over whether to worship asuras/Ahura or daevas/devs). This Indo-Iranian pantheon was also related to many European pantheons (Asura and Aesir, Dyaus and Deus), all coming from an older Indo-European pantheon (that formed in or around the Caucuses, possibly in modern Turkey, the northern Levant, or modern Iran).
Deities marked with a V are Vedic deities and were known by the early **** Indus valley peoples. Zoroastrian Ahura Mazda may substitute for Varuna, Mithra for Mitra, Atar for Agni, and Haoma for Soma.
V-Aditi - Good. Earth goddess.
-Aghori - Unaligned. The Aghori are an Indian Shiva worshipping sect that believe that since Shiva is good, and everything created is created by Shiva, to restrict oneself for social or religious taboos is to deny Shiva. The Aghori are ascetics (well, sorta) under a master (usually an Invoker, especially if the sect is prone to helping people). Their rites include violation of sexual taboos, eating meat, covering themselves in funerary ashes, and eating the cooked remains of cremated individuals. In rural areas, they are regarded as having both the ability to harm and heal. Other areas generally do not approve of their presence. They are not known outside of India.

-YHWH - Lawful Good. Monotheistic God of the ancient Israelites, continues to be viewed as one of the most appropriate depictions of the monotheistic God by many followers of Abrahamic religions.

  • Japanese religion
Japanese religion was highly influenced by Chinese beliefs. Characters might easily follow Chinese philosophy or Buddhism. The Chinese Gods are not going to have as much presence, although Japan did worship the Emperor in the same manner as China (so go on and use the Emperor for that), and some Confucian texts that appear in Japan do refer to Shang Di and Tien, sometimes in a combined form as Tentei. The divine, primal, and arcane power sources tend to blend together, although Shinto tends towards the divine and primal (with divine characters being concerned with powerful Kami while primal characters are concerned with more common ones), Buddhism tends towards divine and arcane, and Taoism and Taoist influenced beliefs tend towards the primal and arcane.

  • Korean mythology
Korea was influenced by Chinese Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism, the last of which disparaged native Korean beliefs to try to replace them. Like Japan, Mongolia, and other animistic cultures, divine and primal magic tend to blur, with divine characters focusing on larger spirits and primal characters focusing on common ones.

  • Malay religion
Malay religion originally consisted of local beliefs that syncretised Hindu and later Muslim ideas. Hinduism and Buddhism were introduced in the 1st century. Father Sky and his children became Shiva and his aspects, and then Allah and various Jinn and saints. A Bomoh is a priest or shaman of the native Malaysian beliefs, although Imams (Muslim religious leaders) are also present after the 12th century. Taoism, Chinese Buddhism, and Catholic Christianity are present in Malaysia after the 16th century. Before that, occasional Persian and Turkish traders that were members of the Assyrian Church of the East would appear after the 7th century.

  • Monotheism
Monotheism (Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism, Zoroastrianism, and others) presents problems in how to handle the one deity. The one God is generally described as good, but some who claim to worship this God will perform evil acts in His name. As such, Ahura Mazda, Allah, Christ, Wariguru, and YHWH, when worshipped monotheistically, are assumed to beyond the alignment system (perhaps because of their sheer goodness or because of an incomprehensible nature). Thus, the one God is represented from various views. These views are not different gods, but the one God as understood by different followers (even within the same religion). Differences in views do not necessarily mean that one group is heretical and another is not, but they can be a pretty good guideline for who a character prone to accusing others of heresy might call out.
-God of the Crusade/Jihad - Unaligned. Generally not found in Judaism after the fall of the Roman Empire (before that, there were the Zealots, the Maccabees, and a lot of really cool beat downs of Canaanites and Philistines in the Bible). Originally, crusade simply means "taking up the cross," and jihad simply means "struggle." Both terms had pretty much the same idea, to struggle against one's own selfish desires to better oneself through religion. After the 11th century, they took on the meaning of struggling against another for one's own selfish desires to better oneself using one's religion as an excuse. Since this unfortunately is what most people associate with the words crusade and jihad, this will be used to describe the idea of God over religious wars.
-God of Heaven - Good. God when viewed as the radient being that reigns in heaven. Centuries later, people would try to suggest that the monotheistic religions took this depiction from pagan sun god and moon gods. This is common for the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) at all period of their histories. When applied to Asian religion, this is appropriate for Wariguru of Sikhism, Ahura Mazda of Zoroastrianism (and to some extent Zurvanism), Tengri in Mongolia, or Tien in China.
-God the Judge - Unaligned. The idea of God as a righteous judge is covered in Righteous God, this covers God when called by anyone that seeks to judge in His name... Which unfortunately hasn't been pretty. This can very well be the idea of God of a fair king, a kind priest, or someone else in a position to judge with goodness in their heart and maybe the law on their side. This can also unfortunately cover bureaucrats more concerned with the letter of the law (secular or religious) than with helping people, or people looking for an excuse to harass or murder countless people in witchhunts or under the idea that God has found the whole world guilty (this was not uncommon in the later middle ages). If applied to Asian religion, this is appropriate for Tien/Shang Di whenever invoked by both followers of Confucius and and Han Feizi.
-God the Omniscient - Unaligned. While there is nothing wrong with defining God as omniscient, monotheists dedicated to knowledge have been rather varied. They can include Good and Lawful Good individuals that attempt to advance knowledge for the sake of all, or they can include crazed occultists that sought union with God for power and for power only. This can include the Hashashin (not just God of the Crusade/Jihad, or God the Judge or the Righteous), since esoteric knowledge played a large part of their teachings. Also included for priests and monks that also happen to be engaged in demonic magic (for good purposes of course, such as finding treasure and killing rivals).
-God the Protector - Lawful Good. This idea of God is inbetween God the Redeemer and God the Lawgiver, with the difference that the Protector will act through laws (unlike the Redeemer) but is more concerned with the well being of the individuals than their ability to fulfill the law (unlike the Lawgiver). This is common throughout the Abrahamic religions, and appropriate for Ahura Mazda and Shang Di (especially for followers of Confucius and Mencius).
-God the Lawgiver - Lawful Good. This idea of God is inbetween the Protector and the Judge. This idea of God is equally concerned with the law as with the individuals that the law is meant to protect. When applied to Asian religion, this is appropriate for Ahura Mazda in Zurvanism, or Shang Di for followers of Confucius not influenced by Mencius.
-God the Redeemer - Good. This idea of God is almost the antithesis of the Lawgiver or Judge. Instead of being expected to fulfill the law, worshippers are loved by God for who they are, thanks to the merciful nature of God (this is not an excuse to be evil, the followers are expected to be good just because it is good, not because God is going to force them). Christianity was founded upon this idea, but the law (whatever form it takes) is still respected by many Christians, and this idea does appear in Judaism and Islam.
-God the Righteous - Lawful Good. This is kind of to the God the Lawgiver what God of Heaven is to God the Redeemer. This idea represents God's law as a means of God's radiance to shine in the world, whereas the Lawgiver's commandments are creations like any other. This is common for the Abrahamic religions when organized, and appropriate for Shang Di for followers of Confucius (ironically influenced by Han Feizi in the view that the emperor's will is a force of nature).

  • Neoplatonism
This represents the idea of God being active in different stages in creation. Had Christianity not appeared, this and Mithraism would have lead the Roman empire to monotheism. Christianty adopted Neoplatonic ideas during the middle ages. During this time, Judaism gradually adopted it, forming the tradition Kabbalah into what it is today as a reaction against the rising popularity of Aristotelianism among rabbis. This went on to influence alchemy, which in turn influenced ceremonial magic and Enochian magic. The different concepts of God will be given in Kabbalistic form first (the Sephiroth, sing. Sephira), followed by classical form. Several of these will be followed by servants of God in the form of classic archangels, ranks of celestial figures (in Judaism and Christianity), Paracelsus's Hermetic archangels, Olympian spirits from ceremonial magic, and then Enochian archangels. The archangels and angels would not be worshipped, but would instead be figures that intervene on behalf of God for a Divine character (although it would be more appropriate to be a multiclassed divine/arcane character). All these figures are in theory are too good for mortal understanding, but the first set are considered good or lawful good (with the exception of the Olympian spirits, who are unaligned). Complete justice and omniscience also results in the righteous punishment that our limited minds cannot understand as being fair. Also included are the Qlippoth, the empty shells of the Sephiroth lacking the spirit or will of God, and their cortex, the creatures that spring forth from them. The Qlippoth are evil, but their cortexes are chaotic evil.

  • Ossetian mythology
The Ossetians retained a number of their deities by identifying them with saints. A devout Ossetian Christian character in a medieval campaign might still use the figures below for patron saints instead of normal listing of saints. The Narts were a superhuman race descended from Satanaya. Their enemies were the Terks (or Turks), and the Vaigs (a type of ogre or similar creature). The Narts and the Vaigs were "giants," but this could just mean that they are a taller race (Devas, Half-Orcs, or Goliaths, perhaps).

  • Pegana pantheon
Although only men, dwarves, spirits, and shadows are refered to in the Pegana series, there is nothing saying that these are the only things in Pegana. Shadar-Kai may be the shadows given life by Yahn, Warforged (rather stoney warforged) might be the men that Yarni Zai made, the Baboons that worship the three Yozis may have been warped into something like Half-Orcs, Devas might be minor gods (or Zai), Genasi might be some of the Thousand Home Gods, Kalashtar might be minor gods in the service of Yoharnath-Lahai, Eladrin or Wilden in the service of Kib; and elves, half-elves, and halflings may be different types of humans.
-Chance - One of the two that created the world to win of a game.
-Fate - One of the two deities that created the world to win a game.
-Mana-Yood-Sushai - Demiurge who is not prayed to except by the gods he created, but still called on by mortals who have no other recourse. A temple is maintained in Sundari, but the priests in it forbid themselves to work or pray. Noone knows what happens those who appeal directly to Mana, but the people that send a priest to him are not known to have their prayers answered. The priests of this temple, particularly the prophet Ood are revered as great prophets, though. His awakening will destroy the world, but he may be merciful or harsh.
Small gods -
-Dorozhand - "Whose Eyes Regard The End," god of destiny (possibly even of the gods' destinies) who sees everything. Ruler of the gods, life is a means to accomplish what he will.

-Kib - Creator of beasts and men, first god to speak, ruining the silence of Pegana.

-Mosahn - "The Bird of Doom" whose cries shall awaken Mana-Yood-Sushai at THE END.

-Slid - Sea god who particularly opposes the worship of Mana-Yood-Sushai. Somewhat more positive death god, sends death when it is needed. Worshipped a lot in the cities, woods, plains, and valleys.

Heroic feats
Mai Doon Izahn - Must be a worshipper of Dorozhand or of no deity. Mai Doon Izahn are the words at the end of the black and white book of Troogool that mean "The End For Ever." A character with this feat knows their meaning and pronunciation, and may recite them to bring about a lesser end. This is an encounter power free action that forces all effects to end, as though their time had run out and the encounter had finished. If this is done in combat, the encounter restarts (it does not simply resume).
Mad prophet - Must have the Prophethood feat or class ability. Your character believes his soul possesses anything his soul becomes aware of. As a immediate interrupt daily power triggered by being successfully affected with an arcane, divine, shadow, primal, or psionic attack, you may choose to take that power and use it your next turn or spend a minor action to hold on to it.
Prophethood - Must be a divine character. Many a prophet laments that they have exchanged happiness for wisdom. Your character may automatically succeed a wisdom based check as a free action, but you will lose the right to make one death saving throw. This death saving throw is recovered after an extended rest. This ability can be used multiple times, but using more than twice pretty much dooms a divine character to die. A divine character may replace one of their channel divinity abilities with this feat at character creation, and may later take that channel divinity ability as a feat at that time or later.
Prophet of Alderon - Must have the Prophethood feat or class ability. Your character has learned not to fear the gods or their lightnings. You gain resistance to lightning and radiant damage equal to half your level.
Prophet of Aradec - Must have the Prophethood feat or class ability. Your character has learned not to speak of death to kings. You may have a character automatically succeed at a death saving throw as a free action, but you automatically fail the next one you make.
Prophet of Mlideen - Must have the Prophethood feat or class ability. Your character may, as an at-will minor action, roll a percentile die. If the roll is not 00 (or 100), you may switch to a different divine feat as if you had always worshipped a different deity. If the roll is 00 (or 100), everyone present takes 2d6 (per tier) cold damage and are knocked prone, and for the rest of the encounter all terrain is hindering terrain.
Prophet of Sundari - Must have the Prophethood feat or class ability, must be a worshiper of Mana-Yood-Sushai. Your character is used to being still in the dark, resting as your god does. As long as your character does not (or cannot) move, and does not see (or cannot), he cannot be the direct target of any attack unless the attacker makes a saving throw.
Prophet of Yarnith - Must have the Prophethood feat or class ability, must be a worshiper of Yarni Zai. This feat functions as the Arcane Familiar feat, but is for Divine characters. If the character is also arcane, then the character has two familiars, but only one may be active at a time and switching between active and passive modes requires a minor action for each. The character may take additional familiar feats, but a feat must be taken for each familiar, that is, one for the arcane familiar and one for the divine.
Prophet of Zonu - Must have the Prophethood feat or class ability, must be a worshiper of Yahn. Your character gains the Shadar-Kai Shadow Jaunt ability. If he is already a Shadar-Kai, he may use his shadow jaunt ability as an immediate interrupt when reduced to 0 or fewer HP.
Sign of Kib - Must have the Prophethood feat or class ability, must be a worshipper of Kib. Your character gains the Cleric ability healing word, or gains twice as many uses of it if they already are a Cleric.
Sign of Mung - Must have the Prophethood feat or class ability, must be a worshiper of Mung. At-will power standard action, area burst 10, all characters (including yourself and allies) must make a saving throw or be reduced to 0 HP.
Sign of Roon - Must have the Prophethood feat or class ability, must be a worshiper of Roon. Daily stance power take as a standard action lasting for an encounter, your character gains the wizard spell Mage hand as an at-will power while using this stance, and may end the stance by using expeditious retreat for half his speed. This stance ends when any other daily or encounter powers are used.
Strange Signs - Must have the Prophethood feat or class feature. Your character knows how to quench the fear of death in others. This is a daily power that may be used as a free action, allowing the character to automatically succeed their next death saving throw.


  • Proto-Afro-Asiatic pantheon
HIGHLY tenative, don't expect to get anywhere near an A if you try to use this in an anthropology, history, or religion class. Unfortunately, the culture of the early Semitic people and their parent group the Afro-Asiatic people haven't been studied near to the extent that Indo-European culture has. As such, this is more of an amalgamation of Proto-Semitic and Proto-Afro-Asiatic deities.

  • Proto-Indo-European pantheon
This is HIGHLY tenative, some ideas are duplicated to represent major ways they were used later (Heus, Heusos, Heustero), some times a very common theme is represented with a name that comes from only a few Indo-European cultures (Ghen) because of lack of other common information, and sometimes I did push a detail simply so that it would make sense (or less nonsense) story wise (particularly in the case of Leuk Ghutom). After all, this is a game, not a scholarly venture.
--Deiwos - The clan of gods that follows Dyeus Pater
-Dehnu - River goddess; later Danu (both Sankrit and Irish), Diana, also the Dnieper, Don, and Danube rivers. Cut open to produce a river (usually any famous one). Daughter of Hepom Nepots by Dheghom Mater, mother of the Teuteh by Leuk Ghutom
-Dheghom Mater - Earth goddess (grain goddess in particular), later Demeter or Earth Mother. Daughter of Welnos and Pulthih Mater, mother Perkwunos Pehuson, Priheh, and the Deiwos (by Dyeus Pater); mother of Medhuna, Sauma, Sarvatat, Dehnu (by Hepom Nepots).
-Dheubh - Large serpent monster slain by Dyeus Pater, later Typhon
-Dyeus Pater - Sky father, later becomes the Hindu Dyaus, Latin Deus and Jupiter (corrupted Deu-Piter), Greek Zeus (corrupted Deus), and German Tiwuz (or Tyr). Son of Welnos and Pulthih Mater, father of Perkwunos, Pehuson, Priheh, and the Deiwos (by Dheghom Mater), father of Mehnot and Sehel (by a Heusos maiden). As an infant, Dyeus Pater Was hidden by Pulthih to prevent Welnos from eating him, grew up to slay Welnos, freeing his siblings. The Deiwos claim Dyeus Pater slayed Azi (who was Vertra), Kurmis, and Werunos, and used their bodies to build the sea, earth, and heavens.
-Ekwa - Horse twins, brothers of the sun maiden or dawn goddess, sons of the sky god. Connected with Venus. Daughter of Medhuna by Dyeus Pater.
-Hepom Nepots - Water god, brother of sky god (probably Dyeus Pater), melts ice and causes world flood (usually as a later threat rather than a Noah kinda story); later Apam Napat (a minor water deity in Hinduism and Zoroastrianism, feel free to use). Also known as Neptonos - sea god; later Celtic Nechtan (AKA Nuada or Nodens), Nethuns, and Neptune, partly inspired Rhine maidens and similar spirits (perhaps their king). Son of Welnos and Pulthih Mater, father of Medhuna, Sauma, Sarvatat, Dehnu (by Dheghom Mater), and the Moros (by Pulthih). Swears an oath to justly rule the Deiwos (since Dyeus Pater is in heaven), to which Mitras cut off his arm (the Deiwos claim this was in rejection, the Heusos claim Mitras was simply carrying out his role as an enforcer of oaths, the Teuteh claiming that Medhuna had not made him king by sleeping with him). Hepom is replaced by Bhaga.
-Koryonos - "God of the warband", probably originally an aspect of Perkwunos, but usually made distinct later, so here Koryonos is a title for Perwunos's son Rudlos.
-Medhuna - "Goddess of Mead," makes would-be kings sovereign by sleeping with them, but torments those that do not give in. Conceived by **** of Dhegom Mater by Hepom Nepots; later Irish Mebd, Gaulish Meduna, Indian Madhavi. Daughter of Hepom Nepots and Dheghom Mater, mother of Ekwa.
-Moros - Mora means sea, Mor means terror, eventually Nightmare and Fomorii. Could be used to refer to a number of monsterous races (particularly those associated with the sea in some way, or a maritime version of a regular monster race).
-Namerto - Drink that makes the gods physically immortal, made by Sauma.
-Pehuson - Shepherd god of the market and psychopomp; later Greek Pan (although many of his duties were passed to Hermes), Roman Faunus and Pagan, Hindu Pushan.
-Perkwunos - Thunder god, fights dragon, son of Dyeus Pater and Pulthih, goes on quest for golden apples of immortality, steals cows from Shens and releases them.
-Priheh - Love goddess, demonized in the Heusos group but accepted in the Deiwos group; later Freya, Aphrodite. In charge of a group of Elves/Peris. Later masculine forms include Priapos and Freyr. Venus, Vanas (lust goddess in Hinduism), Vanir related.
-Rudlos - Wild god of the storm and hunt, inflints disease with his bow. Illegitimate father of Leuk Ghutom.
-Sarvatat - Magic and river/water goddess, respected by the Heusos. Later Indian Sarvatat and Zoroastrian Haurvatat.
-Sauma - Deity of a drink that keeps the gods immortal, respected by the Heusos. Later Zoroastrian Haoma and Hindu Soma.
-Tonur - Means "Thunder," probably an epithet for Perkwunos, especially as a war god. Later becomes Thor.
-Wenos - Wen means "to strive," became the basis for Venus, Vanas, and Vanir. Priheh is their founder.

--Heusos - Celestial deities, social order, the stars, the sun, venus, hearths; later Asuras
-Aryaman - King of the Heusos, leader, healer. Carried on into Hinduism and Zoroastrianism, feel free to use this form there.
-Azi - Dragon of drought that blocked Sarvatat's water, killed by Vertra. Later becomes Azidahak in Zoroastrianism, and forms the basis for a word meaning snake in Sanskrit.
-Bhaga - Iranian Baga and Indian Bhaga (an Aditya [[Indian|Titan]] blinded by hero created by Rudra [[Rudlos]] that was also the descendant of a later enemy), related to slavic Bog, means Lord. A fertility and wealth figure.
-Heus - The Light deity followed by the Heusos; later Ahura and Eos. The Deiwos claim that Heus is Dyeus Pater's daughter who sided with Welnos, the Heusos claim that Heus is the first god.
-Heustero - Sacred fire guardian; later Roman Vesta and Zoroastrian Atar, kills dragons
-Mehnot - Moon, divine twin brother of Sehul.
-Mitras - defeats the rock that hides the Dawn, who was stolen by some demons. This connects to the other tales of abductions to the Netherworld (Eleusis, Dionysius is Hades); right hand path to Leuk Ghutom.
-Sehul - Sun, divine twin sister of Mehnot, wife of Perkwunos (and because of this worshipped by the Deiwos), mother of Shens.
-Shens - Sun guardian, later Hindu Surya, Latin Sol

--Primordial figures
-Arta - Hard to translate, but roughly means "righteousness, truth, correct time/ritual." A universal force, opposite of Dhroughos; later Rta in Indian philosophy, Asha in Zoroastrianism, source of the word right. The Heusos and the Deiwos fight over who is preserving the Arta, both sides acknowledge it is older than they are (although the Heusos claim Heus, Mitras, and the Arta are the same thing).
-Dhroughos - The Lie, opposite of Arta, later Druj. The Heusos claim that Dyeus Pater brought about Dhroughos by slaying Welnos. The Deiwos claim that Dhroughos is a side effect of Arta's moving the Ghen to form Welnos and Pulthih Mater. Dhroughos is also the vitilizing (if that is the right word) force for the undead, who are named after it.
-Ghen - "Gape, be wide open," eventually becomes the basis for Chaos and Ginnungagap. A field of cold nothing that forms the basis of the world, the gods either destroy it to create the world, or kill something (Kurmis for the sea and humanity from a Heusos perspective, Werunos for the land, and Yemos for humanity with different parts for different careers or castes) and use the corpse to build on top of this. If the Arta is threatened, the world will return to Ghen. Welnos and Pulthih Mater were created by the Arta moving Ghen.
-Kurmis - Large serpent monster slain by Perkwunos or Heustro, connected to the sea. In Zoroastrianism, Keyumars was a man whose corpse is broken to create humanity. Dragonborn and humanity might argue over who was formed from Kurmis's corpse, or may see each other as relatives (this doesn't mean they get along, however).
-Pulthih Mater - Earth mother, sometimes distinct from Dheghom Mater, sometimes identical.
-Trimehteros - The three fates (actually means three mothers, but going from the European Matres).
-Wagros - Thunder club used by (at different times) Mitras, Vertra, and Perkwunos (as Tonur).
-Welnos - Cattle god, protector of flocks; later becomes veles in Lithuanian, which means "shades" or "spirits of the departed." Max Muller made the argument that it was connected to Varuna and Ouranos, but this is disputed. Eventually conflated with Yemos and Ghen by the folks that identify Leuk Ghutom with Dyeus Pater and Manus, so Leuk Ghutom kills Welnos to create the world.
-Werunos - Large serpent monster slain by Dyeus Pater or Mitras, somehow connected with Welnos, land serpent, somehow death results in worldmaking

--Teuteh - means tribe, some Celts and Gauls worshipped a figure names Toutatis (sometimes known as Teutates) as a war god (and probably as an ancestor figure). May be another human culture (perhaps this is where humanity comes from and Dragonborn are from Kurmis), may be the source of Half-Orcs.
-Albh - Means "white," refered to divine craftsmen that later become Elves (in Germany) and Rbhus (in India). Use for either Elves or Eladrin (and use Wenos for the other), or use this for the dwarves (Dwarves and Elves tend to be blurred in older mythology), and use Wenos for Elves and Eladrin.
-Dhwergwhos - means "something tiny," probably the basis for dwarf. Could use for Dwarves, Halflings, or Gnomes.
-Manus - Yemos is dismembered by Manus who uses the parts to create the world, Yemos goes on to rule the underworld as first to die, Manus later sacrifices bull (not to make the world but to preserve it). Mannus becomes Indian Manu, German Mannus, Iranian Ahriman.
-Leuk/Leug Ghutom - left hand path deity that acts as a foil for Perkunos (as Tonur) or for Mitras. Later Leuk becomes light, Leug becomes dark, and Ghutom becomes god. The Germanic Wodenaz/Odin and Celtic Lugus/Lugh were both gods of ravens, spears, magic, and culture; and were certainly from the same source (unfortunately, it is impossible to tell which name is an epithet for the other deity). Wodenaz was also sometimes Goden (the name Odin and word god actually have the same source). Lugus been related Loki, and Lugh being descended from the Fomorii but moving to the De Danaan works with Loki moving from the Jotuns to the Aesir. Eventually conflated with Manus and Dyeus Pater as culture bearer and sky-father.
-Vertra - Regarded by the Heusos as a strong warrior, by the Deiwos as a dragon of drought and known as Azi (Azi was slain by Atar, Vrtra was slain by Indra), but also Vertra blocks Sarvatat's water; Later Zoroastrian Verethagra, Hindu Vrtra and Vrtrahan (epithet for Indra, fought against the Asura). This is all a bit confusing, let's have it so Vertra kills a dragon named Azi, who is sometimes refered to as Vertra's dragon, the Heusos clan praises him, the Deiwos clan blames Vertra (who has become a dragon because of Azi's treasure) for the water blockage and Perkwunos kills him, taking the Wagros (I know, a bit too Siegfried, but it works).
-Yemos - Yemos later becomes Indian Yama, German Ymir, Zoroastrian Gayomart (cosmic bull slain so his corpse could form the world). Yemos's death forming the world may have been the basis for Remus being slain by Romulus at the foundation of Rome.

  • Tibetan pantheon
Tibet does not many individual gods as classes of deities. After the arrival of Buddhism, these ranks of spirits were syncretised with buddhas and bodhisattvas, but some Tibetans continued to practice the pre-Buddhist form of their religion, becoming known as the Bon. There is a mixed history of the Bon religion being accepted as another form of Buddhism, to rejection as heretics or heathens. Many of the classes of spirits (particularly the more malevolent ones) were not worshipped, but perhaps appeased (but more likely warded). However, in a fantasy setting, a group of misguided Bon cultists might align themselves with more malevolent spirits seeking to protect Tibet from outside influence, or a misinformed Buddhist monastery might confuse the destructive nature of these spirits with a means of forcing enlightenment on others ("they don't exist anymore, they must have attained Nirvana").

  • Turkic pantheon
The ancient religion of the Turkic people (which continues even today in Mongolia), is where we get the term "shaman" from. This religion was likely practiced by the Huns, and other non-slavic north eastern Europeans well into the 10th century. Mongolian religion and Chinese religion are distantly related. The name of the Mongolian high God Tengri is related to the Chinese high God Tien. Mongolia influenced China a great deal through constant invasions. Mongolian Shamanism is refered to as Tao Shen (gambolling before the spirits) in Chinese. After the arrival of Buddhism into Mongolia, Shamanism was refered to as Khara Shadjin (or "the black faith,") while Buddhism was refered to as Shira Shadjin ("the yellow faith.") Some tribes tend towards a family shamanism, where shamanism is practiced by any individual with a supernatural gift mainly for the benefit of the household; while other tribes tend towards a professional shamanism, where the shaman is one or a few individuals within a tribe that works for the community. The former may be represented by the primal powered classes, while the later could be represented by the divine powered classes. Another possibility is that the primal powered classes is more concerned with common spirits while the divine power classes work with mainly the larger named spirits and the high God Tengri. Both of the latter cases are likely to be followers of Tengriism, a religion that states that Tengri is the sole creator God in charge of all spirits; while the former in both cases are likely to follow a pre-Tengriist shamanism where, while Tengri is a powerful figure, He is not alone in godhood. In some cases, a tribe might be inbetween, perhaps with a division between gender (e.g. primarily women working with the primal, primarily men working with the divine) or age (most people practicing the primal, the old practicing the divine) or some sort of initiation. Multiclassing between the primal and divine would be thought of as perfectly natural. Except for Tengri, the following spirits may or may not be acknowledged in any given tribe. Ulgan is very likely to be acknowledged, and Eje, Erlik, Tung-Ak, and Yer-Sub are common (although they may be present under different names).
-Ai Toyon - Lawful Good. Light spirit depicted as an eagle.
-Bai Baiania - Lawful Good. Spirit of forests and joy.
-Chyky - Unaligned. A smith spirit, gives good advice.
-Eje - Good. An earth mother figure.
-Erlik - Chaotic Evil. The first man, rebelled against Tengri and became the lord of the underworld. Depicted as an old man with a well-built body, with black eyes, eyebrows, and mustache; and a pig's face and teeth.
-K'Daai - Unaligned. Fire spirit, first blacksmith and iron worker, possesses curative powers.
-Kuara - Unaligned. A thunderer spirit. Not universally acknowledged, as Tengri is often held responsible for thunder and lightning.
-Tengri - Good. The high God in Tengriism, one of the highest spirits/gods otherwise. The name Tengri means Heaven. The Mongolian Tengri is also found as Tenri among the Turkic peoples of western Asia/eastern Europe (who were, according to European accounts, monotheists).
-Tung-Ak - Unaligned. Spirits of long dead chieftans.
-Ulgan - Unaligned. Either Tengri's son, an aspect of Tengri, or an epithet of Tengri. It is often accepted that none get to Tengri except through Ulgan. Ulgan is also a demiurge figure, responsible for helping in the world's creation.
-Yer-Sub - Unaligned. Ancestor spirits associated with water and earth.

  • Yezidiism
Yezidiism is a religion influenced by ancient Mesopotamian beliefs, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Mithraism, Christianity, and Islam. They believe God created an angel named Melek Taus and six other angels to create the world, asking Melek Taus to worship nothing but Him. God then created Adam and asked Melek Taus to bow before Adam. Islam and some Christian legends hold that Satan was placed in a similar situation and fell for refusing to bow to a creature made of clay. This has lead some Muslims and Christians to believe that Melek Taus is Satan. The Yezidis teach that Melek Taus refused to bow out of his love for God, for which God was happy. The Yezidi also teach that they are distinct from the rest of humanity. Before Adam and Eve decided who would have what role in childbirth, they decided to see who could create a good child on their own. Both of them placed their seed in jars. Eve's produced insects, Adam's produced a handsome boy that married a spirit and fathered the Yezidis. The seven angels are regarded as emanations of God, and certain past kings and prophets were regarded as incarnations of the different angels.

  • Zoroastrianism
Zoroastrianism was a religion started by the prophet Zoroaster in the area that is now Afghanistan, eastern Iran, or western Pakistan. Zoroaster taught that there was only one God (Ahura Mazda), and all other beings are angels working for or demons fighting against the one God. Persia and India at this point followed very similar religions, so many of the figures in Hinduism and Zoroastrianism parallel. Zurvanism was a later development based on the interpretation of some verses in Zoroastrian scriptures that said that the good spirit and the evil spirit were twins, and that Ahura Mazda came out from time (Zurvan). Normal interpretation up to this point took this to mean that the head angel under Ahura Mazda was equal to the lead evil spirit that opposed Ahura Mazda, and that Ahura Mazda was eternal. The Zurvanists took this to mean that Ahura Mazda and Ahriman (the evil spirit) were the twin sons of Zurvan (now a god of time instead of the word time). Zoroastrianism was the main religion in Persia before Islam, and it and Zurvanism were both present in India and to a lesser extent in China. In a fantasy campaign, Devas are probably regarded as not really being Devas, or as evil spirits meant to misguide people, or perhaps Devas sympathetic to or faithful in Zoroastrianism regard themselves as Yazatas.
