Elohim are angelic deities. Truth, beauty, and justice are concepts held in the hearts of most elohim yet these qualities do not exclude the possibility of dishonesty, ugliness, or iniquity. Yes, elohim are the deities that grant powers to goodly forces of Thepa but they too were mortal at some point and their flaws periodically betray their virtually pure alignments. Below you’ll find basic explanations of the categories used for each entry of an elohim.
The material covered first in an entry is common facts. It is designed to summarize a deity and offer a quick peek at the lengthy information covered in the following subsections. The name, alignment, strength as a divine being, portfolio, and any aliases of the deity are listed here.
Important game related information is covered by this portion of the entry including races, favored weapon, domains, and tenets. The racial list does not exclude a race from being selected by a player. It is simply a record of the most likely scenarios in this campaign.
A self-explanatory title, this section goes into a detailed description of a deity’s holy symbol. Color, size, and usage are all covered. Any deity quirks or strange abilities of the holy symbol are also denoted here.
The flock and their lifestyles are roughly discussed throughout this section. As worshipers are abundant, it is impossible to explore all possible communities, yet the majority of supporters are covered and in some situations with specific details. This entry will also compare the number of worshipers of a specific deity against the rest of the world’s worshipers. The table that will be used is as follows:
Abundant – many
Often – common or above average
Moderate – normal or average
Infrequent – uncommon or below average
Sparse – very few and scattered
Advocates, Direct Followers, and Minions
The devoted members of a deity’s flock are extensively examined within these numerous paragraphs. Any class linked to a deity should study this material. Valuable insight has been documented and should not be skipped over.
A deity must have a past, therefore his mortal life is commonly chronicled. Additionally – physical appearance, mental attributes, and personality of the divine being’s current manifestation are inspected in this section.
Lastly, a deity needs a home or a place to reside. A summary of the plane and several key notes about the plane’s inhabitants are touched upon in this final field of the deity’s entry.
