30 Days of Dungeons and Dragons: Favorite Diety (Day 6)


Day 6 Favorite Deity

Wow, this is a tough question. There are so many different Deities in Dungeons and Dragons. Each race has their own deity that they worship and each player character can have their own. Per the 3.5e Complete Divine book. In Chapter one it states that “A Deity isn’t just a name you write on your character sheet”. Chapter 5 gives a list of the Core Deities that are shown in the Players Handbook and gives you information their domain, portfolio (aspect of existence over which it has dominion), and favored weapons they choose.

Example Core Deities:

Now you could make up your own deity, such as The Flying Spaghetti Monster, that my monk favors. Or just make one up out of your own imagination. You will want to work that out with your DM of course, but it’s not limited to just the books. You can even pull their information from other additions of DND.

Ok, now that I have gotten the basic information down on Deities. I honestly don’t have a favorite of my own. When I was a player, I never took a deity as my own. Most players do not because they are not sure who to choose or why. I have a character with an interesting backstory with Bahamut as part of it, but as a player I think she choose a different god to follow as a paladin. I have ran a campaign where my players were going up against Nerull (the god of death) and it didn’t end well for anyone. He was an interesting character to play because he is so powerful, but I don’t think I would call him my favorite Deity.

Who’s your favorite? Tell me in the comments!

I am a nerd. There I said it, it's out in the open now. I love Star Trek, Star Wars, Firefly, Doctor Who...and the list goes on and on. I also LOVE to play Dungeons and Dragons. I am the Dungeon Master of a game I run once a month with my friends. This website, my Facebook group, and my YouTube channel, are all out there to show you how I design a campaign and build my dungeons. I usually use Hirst Art molds to create and build my dungeons, however, I have been using foam board and random other objects you might think are trash to create items for our games. Four four weekends a month, I work on the story, the design, and putting the game together. I love that my friends can leave their lives behind for a few hours a month and just immerse themselves in my game. This page will just be blog posts describing things that happen in the games, things that happen while working on my builds, and other thoughts on our dungeons and dragons adventures.

One thought on “30 Days of Dungeons and Dragons: Favorite Diety (Day 6)”

  1. Favorite deity’s a tough question. Since The Forgotten Realms has been my favorite setting, and the Avatar Trilogy has some significant nostalgic mojo for me, I’ll say Mystra.
