The Pantheons and Gods of Loatia

NOTE: This Outline of the Pantheons of Loatia is still undergoing some play balancing.

Alignment: The Godswar Campaign Setting operates on a “single axis alignment system” as it existed in 1st Edition Dungeons and Dragons. The single axis consists of three alignments: “lawful, implying honor and respect for society’s rules; chaotic, implying rebelliousness and individualism; and neutral, seeking a balance between the extremes.” (Wikipedia)

This single axis system allows for the idea that no one is completely good or bad, but a mix of both. Feel free to change this for your own game, but to truly get the feel of the world of Loatia, this system works best.

 

**NEW: Shared Domains**

 In the world of Loatia, the Gods are in a constant state of war, and sometimes form alliances. The nature and history of these alliances is recorded in the various temple scrolls in the form of epic poems. These alliances allow domains to be shared from between deities and expands the ruleset for Pathfinder (and other systems). These are in addition to the new subdomains rules, and not meant to replace them. However, most deities will not allow full access to their sphere to another, so these domains are limited to 0-3rd or 0-4th level spells. Clerics may choose up to two Shared Domains that they have a favored ability score of at least 16.

    • Alignment – Chaotic
    • Domains – Trickery, Luck, Halfling, City, Trade
    • Favored Ability – Dexterity

      • Chosen/High Priest Domain: Re-Gifting (see below)
        1. New Priest Domain: Re-Gifting
          • The God of Trickery steals a ‘gift’ and grants it as a prayer to the priest. What god or sphere he will manage to steal from is a matter of opportunity, and therefore completely random (But within the casters level/ability).
          • Rule: A priest spell is chosen at random from all Domains using dice every time the cleric uses this Domain. First roll for the domain, then the spell. The priest cannot cancel the spell unless the spell states otherwise.
  2. God of Death
  3. God of Time
    (God of Time is in a cursed slumber, and does not answer prayers. But players who choose this deity may still cast prayers of his shared domains.)
