Great Mother, the Hive Spawner: http://bit.ly/2UgrWn2

The Great Mother of the beholders is a bizarre being of contradictions. It is a chaotic entity where its spawn are lawful, and while it is the source of beholders’ power, it is also the ultimate origin of all the different breeds of beholder and kin, and thus at least partially responsible for their xenophobic internal wars.

Okay, I can understand the others, but what did Diinkarazan do to deserve the Great Mother's emnity? He's a greater danger to the derro than to the Great Mother.

They met on a blind date. He took one look at her, screamed like a little girl and ran off, and she's never forgiven him for that.

Diirinka the Betrayer: http://bit.ly/387V7Mo

Diirinka is the treacherous and cruel patron of the degenerate dwarves known as derro. Exiled from the Morndinsamman for his crimes against his brother and mortal dwarves, he hides in Pandemonium, paranoid that his enemies, especially the illithid god Ilsensine, will find and destroy him.

Emmantiensien the Treant-King: https://bit.ly/2wKVVKH

One of the outer circle members of the Seelie Court, Emmantiensien is still an important member of the Court. He forgets nothing, making him an excellent sage, and he guards a powerful ancient magical crystal that grants him and the Court substantial powers.

Tethrin Veraldé the Shining One: https://bit.ly/2MjGnS1

One of a number of minor elven deities who appeared in the pages of Dragon Magazine, Tethrin Veraldé, the elven god of bladesingers and battle magic, had an abbreviated Faiths & Avatars style writeup in Dragon #236, which I have expanded upon.

Squelaiche the Court Jester: https://bit.ly/3gkuybw

Squelaiche is the patron of leprechauns, and the Court Jester of the Seelie Court. He is a trickster, but his jests and jibes always carry lessons to those they target. He is the only member of the Inner Circle who isn’t related to Titania.

I just want to say that I searched for a monster that A.J. Picket called a 'Scourger' relating to Fraz-Urblu and the only result on the entire website was this forum on page 9.

Why does this happen to me? I finally stop researching Orcus (see my created threads) and the Raven Queen's origins and then the only result for a completely unrelated term leads me straight back to more mind shatteringly coincidental forum postings that I now have to deep dive into to get more Kiransalee/Orcus/Grazt/Raven Queen research.

>_>' This place is so magically convinent it's stressful...

Edit: SKURCHUR! Dragon 333. A freaking lack of correct spelling led me here.
Incredible.

Psilofyr the Spore Lord: https://bit.ly/2Dnsl0L

A contemplative and peaceable deity, Psilofyr is the myconid deity of community and philosophy. It is an ancient power, manifesting as a type of fungal world tree archetype. It dislikes animal life, seeing them as inherently destructive and violently destructive, although it has softened towards races like the svirfneblin that have proven themselves allies to myconids.

Araleth Letheranil the Prince of Stars: https://bit.ly/3lxhFxY

One of the younger elven deities from the pages of Dragon Magazine, Araleth Letheranil is the god of starlight. He is an adventurous deity that keeps darkness at bay, and opposes many of the traditional enemies of the surface elves, especially drow. These traits have made him particularly popular with the members of the Elven Fleets in wildspace.

that's an interesting twist (i.e. tying him the the Imperial elven fleet). I don't recall that from the original article, so if its your add, good job. Where is his scar from Lolth's bite? Arm? Hand? Leg? Face? I'm just thinking there might be superstitious omens if a priest gets bitten in the same spot by a spider or something.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

Yeah, I added it. It seemed like a natural fit. I wrote up an article for a Spelljammer blog a while ago about how the elven faiths fit into spacefaring elven culture, and that was the catalyst.

Since the original article didn't specify the location, I chose not to. To an extent, I figure local branches of the faith see it in different places based on their own versions of the myth.

Senior Scribe AuldDragon,

You should really consider getting this stuff together as a pdf for the DM's Guild. Great stuff, and it would be awesome to have it in one quick location for use!

Unfortunately, it would require significant re-editing, re-arrangement, and conversion to be allowed on DM's Guild with the rules in place now.

Yeah, basically it's "wrong edition" and "wrong settings" that would get it flagged. I think there's also an exclusivity requirement. I could probably get it in under the radar for a while, but if it sold well or got reported, it would likely get taken down.

Kr’tx the Flaming Master: https://bit.ly/3jVvjsZ

One of the neogi deities detailed in the article “The Ecology of the Neogi,” in Dragon #214, Kr’tx is that race’s deity of war. It is an unsubtle brute of a neogi, and favored by the umber hulks the neogi keep due to its brutality.

Just wondering Aulddragon, do you have a list of these odd deities (the ones you HAVE done and the ones you HAVEN'T done yet)? I'd just be curious just how many little known/undocumented deities there are out in the multiverse. I know at one point you gave something like a list of such a few years back, but I didn't recall any neogi deities on it (that being said, my memories not what it used to be), so it almost seems like you've found even more.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail
