This book can take your design to the next level. It provides a very sound basis for designing your own divinity within a campaign world. Alternatively, it spells out some of the more common fantasy pantheons Greek, Norse, Egyptian for ready play. While it is by no means exhaustive, it gives the framework to build a campaign with a pantheon that functions in “elaborate” ways when viewed from the outside.
You’ll know it’s actually much easier to manage by keeping a couple good principles in mind when dictating interactions between and with deities. It spells out a few simple questions and explains how different your world can be based on your answers to those questions. I had this book before, which was driving reason I wanted it.
I was especially thrilled to see the Egyptian pantheon whereas the Norse and Greek ones I expected. This book gives you a more informed decision and shows you just how far your character’s chosen god could influence the world and the character’s attitude, moreso if they’re a cleric, paladin, or druid type involved in divine magic.
For a DM this definetely could spawn adventure ideas – every deity has involvement both in material plane and dungoens the outer planes. Mostly for DMs, but this could be handy for players wanting options.
I’m currently running a Pathfinder scenario and we are using the rules out of this book my players are ranked three demigods so it is a nice fit. I was disappointed in pathfinders mythic adventures not quite what I was looking for but this book and the old epic level handbook are good substitutes. This is a great book for any campaign that wants to involve the deities.
Deities and Demigods (3e)
It has great details about all of the deities, and includes the NPC stats for the deities, in case you want to put them in some kind of encounter. This gave me all the tools i needed to make sure the transition went smoothly. I had high expectations for the third edition – one would expect that with the third major release, they’d get it right. Sadly, this book is even weaker than the previous releases – it contains fewer pantheons than ever, because of all the nonessential padding given to each entry.
The vast majority of the book consists of statistics for each of the gods profiled. Much space is given to the feats, spell-like abilities, and combat statistics of these ultra-powerful beings – things that will almost never be used in actual gameplay or character building. Does it matter which “feats” Hermes has? Does it matter which weapons Loki is proficient in?
Does anyone care how many attacks per round Osiris has, or what Athena’s Constitution score is? Unless you’re playing a overpowered “munchkin” campaign, the answer is no; but more than three quarters of each deity’s description consists of this sort of useless fluff.
It would have been far better for Wizards to have devoted the space to content that can be used to add flavour to a campaign where these gods are worshipped. There should have been more material about various clerical orders that serve each of these beings, perhaps including rival churches of the same god with long-standing historical grudges just as there are within Christianity or Islam.
They could have given us more information on the history of these gods and the relationships between them – the story of how Odin lost his eye is far more interesting than the list of spells he can cast. I recommend against buying this book, for players or DMs.
