The Raven Queen

  • Alignment: Neutral
  • Portfolio: Death, Fate, Winter
  • Domain: Darkness, Death, Knowledge, Repose, Water
  • Favored Weapon: Kukri
    The Raven Queen is one of the newest of the gods. Her real name has been long forgotten and she is known only by her title. She is one of the four gods that hold power over the seasons and one of the three godesses of destiny. Because of abuses by her predecessor, when she was elevated she was only given power over death itself, not over the dead. The Raven Queen has no enemies among the gods, but she has a clear hatred of the demon prince Orcus, who seeks to overthrow her and take her portfolio.


  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Trickery, Moon, Love, Autumn
  • Domains: Air, Charm, Healing, Good, Trickery
  • Favored Weapon: Shortbow
    Sehanine is perhaps the most “human” of the gods. Only Pelor is more involved in mortal affairs, and even he is not interested in the minutia of mortal life. Marriages are sealed in her name, and lovers pray to her to hide their indiscretions from others. Sehanine is married to Corellon and is allies with Pelor and The Raven Queen as one of the gods of the seasons. She is also friends with Avandra and Melora. Sehanine encourages her followers to avoid zealotry and walk the middle line. She is enemies with Gruumsh, Lolth (who was Corellon’s first wife), Asmodeus, and Zehir.


  • Alignment: Chaotic Evil
  • Portfolio: Annihilation, Madness
  • Domains: Chaos, Destruction, Evil, Madness, Void
  • Favored Weapon: Greataxe
    Long ago, even before the Dawn War, Tharizdun discovered a shard of pure evil and decided to incubate it in a remote corner. The result was the Abyss, and the experiment drove Tharizdun to madness. In a rare show of solidarity, the rest of the gods opposed him with a unified front and eventually Pelor and Asmodeus imprisoned him in an endless and formless void. Tharizdun is commonly worshiped today in the guise of the Elder Elemental Eye, and has co-opted the aid of five Primordials to serve as his exarchs until he is able to find a way to escape from the Void. What would happen if those Primordials found out they actually serve a god is unknown and something most do not wish to contemplate.


  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Wealth, Greed, Envy
  • Domains: Destruction, Evil, Law, Scalykind, Trickery
  • Favored Weapon: Flail
    Tiamat is the twin sister of Bahamut. Both were created when the dragon god Io was split in two by one of the primordials. All evil dragons revere her as their mother and many mortals also hope to curry her favor in exchange for great wealth and power. Although she is viewed as a destructive force, Tiamat is actually a very sutble goddess. She is not above razing a city, a castle, or a nation but only as a pleasent distraction from her long term goals.


  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
  • Portfolio: Underdark, Imprisonment
  • Domains: Darkness, Destruction, Evil, Law, Madness
  • Favored Weapon: Spiked Chain
    The patron of jailers and torturers, Torog is also known as the Twisted God or The King Who Crawls. During the Dawn War he was trapped in the Underdark and sealed there for all eternity. However, that has not left him powerless, and some mortals are afraid that if they speak his name he will reach up from the earth and drag him to his torture dens to “play” with for all eternity. Although many feel this is a superstious fear, others point to places like the city of Maelbrathyr as proof that the fears in fact have a basis in truth.


  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Undeath, Secrets
  • Domains: Death, Evil, Knowledge, Magic, Trickery
  • Favored Weapon: Dagger
    Vecna is one of only two current gods that were once mortal. The other is The Raven Queen, but this does not give them a special bond. Vecna’s role os the Lord of Undeath actually makes him the enemy of The Raven Queen. Vecna was a litch before becoming a god. As the god of secrets, Vecna tries to keep others from learning. This places him in direct conflict with Ioun, and a shadow war between followers of the two gods occurs almost everywhere.


  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Portfolio: Darkness, Poison, Serpents
  • Domains: Darkness, Destruction, Evil, Scalykind, Trickery
  • Favored Weapon: Spear
    Zehir is the patron of serpents and assassins. He works in darkness and uses misdirection to achieve his ends; his cultists will even go so far as to accuse rivils of being cultists of Zehir to decieve others and get rid of competition. He is constantly scheming and even his own cultists do not know his full plan. At least one of his aims is to replace Vecna as god of secrets.
