Elves enjoy sparkling wines and girly drinks, dwarves drink properly stout brews, and humans and halflings will pretty much drink anything. Gotta be gods for that.

Here he is- my "drunken" god. He was originally a halfling deity in my homebrew pantheon, but he can easily fit into any pantheon.


Dellornis: The Vinter, The The Jolly One
CN
Portfolio: Wine, Drunkenness, Revelry, Community
Domains: Plant, Craft, Earth, Pleasure, Chaos
Followers: Vintners, Brewers, Tavern Owners, Revelers, Drunken Masters
Symbol: Bunch of grapes between two sheaves of grain.
Favored Weapon: "Cup of Plenty"- a mace

Dellornis (Dell- or- nis) Is the jolly god of wine and drink, as well as a god of merry-making and agriculture- particularly pertaining to brewing or wine-making. He is a patron of those who appreciate fine drink, and of drunkards and revelers, as well, often seeing to the safety even of those who over-indulge. He is most often seen as a jovial, red-faced male, usually in plain clothes, always carrying a large cup or mug with him that never seems to run out.

History/Relationships: His history is little known, other than a few vague legends that he taught the arts of brewing and wine-making to mortals, and that he is one of the eldest of gods. He is seldom angered, and prefers to humiliate and shame his foes rather than engage in combat. However, when his anger is roused, he can be a dangerous opponent, fueled by a drunken-appearing rage. A small number of monks revere him for his sometimes random bouts of wisdom, and for the unusual combat techniques which he supposedly teaches to some of his most devout followers.

He has few enemies, other than those who are truly evil or concerned with destruction for its own sake, though he has been known to ally with a few of the more chaotic powers. His chief allies are the deities of nature and agriculture, and he also keeps close ties to Liira and Sharess as gods of pleasure and revelry tend to gravitate to the products of his craft.

Dogma: Life is to be enjoyed to the fullest. A fine drink with good friends is a pleasure to be savored. Always be grateful for the fruits of one's labors, and never squander them or take them for granted, for life is short. Over-indulgence is frowned upon, as any pleasure taken to excess can be harmful. Always seek to give aid to those who have succumbed to the lure of drink, to bring them back to a more reasonable appreciation for the fruits of the field and vine.

The Goddess is alive, and magic is afoot.

Which is why I included one back on the fourth page of this thread, in January 2009:

quote:
Vlainur
Lesser Power, CN
Portfolio: Beer, wine, spirits, drunkenness
Superior: None
Allies: Chauntea, Leira, Lliira, Sharess
Foes: None
Symbol: A mug of ale

A favorite of many inhabitants of the Realms, Vlainur is a particular patron of those who make and sell alcoholic drinks. His clergy is small, and his temples generally double as breweries, wineries, or distilleries.

I would put Keptolo from GH into Realms (the drow males need to have a chance to worship someone else than a mad warrior serving Lloth and a thief fighting her :D)
And I'm wondering about putting Torog from 4e Underdark sourcebook too.

What do you think about it?

Not familiar with Torog...

I think that most of the "fill-in" deities I've read about have been pretty lame. I don't pay much attention to them, because the descriptions are generally bland, and I don't usually see a need to expand an existing pantheon with niche deities.

PATHFINDER's Torag has some interesting elements. And like Zireael, I've been thinking about incorporating some of those elements into my Realms. But not as a creator-deity aspect. I've established my own ideas for a creator deity [since I don't use Ao].

Edit:- Whoops! I meant Torag. 'Thas been changed.

I had an entire (whimsical) Halfling Pantheon fleshed-out years ago.

Such notables as Gorgonzola, god of cheese, and Baklava, goddess of tasty deserts.

Yeah, I ran a very non-serious GH game back then. Then I found a big-boy setting.

Oops! Typo! Thanks for catching that, Galuf! I had it right under followers, but I guess I missed that error. Then again, I was on my crap dial-up when I did that, and it can't keep up with my typing. Sometimes I have to wait for it to catch up, and then some of the letters don't appear. I hate dial-up....

Yeah, I stumbled on the similar names myself. But I caught myself before posting.

I do think that Cayden Cailean can easily be dropped into the Realms.

I've actually been thinking about making Cayden an unconfirmed human-derived aspect of Erevan -- since wine, revelry, and "brave deeds" often go hand-in-hand with all kinds of mischief.

I really like Golarion's pantheon - I may use it somewhere. Another thread lead me to look at the Gazeteer once again and I forgot just how cool that pantheon was (I really love their symbols).

Anyone have a link to it? I'd love to take a gander. Or just point me where to look.

I bought the Gazeteer, which unfortunately didn't contain the information on the cosmology I was looking for. I would assume that would be in the campaign guide, which I do not own, or perhaps in Paizo's planer guide (not even sure what they call their version of MotP).

The information is not available for free, AFAIK (unlike WotC info, which is plastered across a dozen WIKI's and hundreds of fan-sites). The one down-side to being a fan of Pathfinder is that Paizo is the ONLY source for lore.

Alystra can try searching Wiki links though. As I recall, some dedicated fans have started producing pages for the various Golarion deities.

I was unaware that Paizo was allowing fan-usage of their properties - thanks for the heads-up.

a lot of Paizo's gods are compatible, I merged most of the main ones with the FR or homebrew gods, it's the big articles from the Pathfinder APs that makes them worthy
