D&D Gods
Deities and Demigods
Deities and Demigods

Gods (Deities) have a major impact on a character and the world around him. Clerics and Paladins are not the only ones that can gain benefit from the Gods in a Roleplaying world. There have been many DMs that have used the Gods to further a story and there will be many more to come. Effectively using a God in your character's background and future playing can vastly improve the game for you and the others you play with. If you are a DM the choices for you may be even grater as you use NPCs within the adventure. A NPC may be more likely to serve one of the lesser known Gods who are not an obvious choice for the standard races/classes offered by the NWN engine. The list of Gods below will expand as you and other players/DMs contribute to the list. If you add a God which isn't listed already, please copy the template used in the other examples. If you are adding details to an already existing page, please continue to use the format there but you are more than welcome to add sections if required.

NeverWinter Nights 1 allows the player to freely enter his Deity into his character data but this isn't used unless a DM or builder adds scripts to use that information. NWN2 suggests some deities the player can choose from and the selection made does effect gameplay but this again is expanded upon by the use of scripting and Roleplaying.
