*Fertility Domain can be found here:http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28993
Fertility is a special domain. A person who takes Fertility as a domain may take bonus domains from either god that has this domain. They only get God bonuses and Favored Weapon bonuses from the god they actually worship however.
**The god of death is not well liked by most good characters, being ussually associated, surprise, surprise, with killing and undead. However most respect that he is more nuetral than evil, even if they don't like him. No good character would ever take him, but nuetral ones would, be prepared to run into a paladin someday, somewhere who gets testy with you because of it though.
***These are known by everyone. Each god has some secrets that are reserved to clerics and paladins of them, or people with special places to the god. [there are ways to get these places, but you have to play the game to find out how.]
****Anra give the other gods their power, thus a cleric of Anra can draw on this and gain a domain from one of the others. Only one domain of the two starting ones may be draw this way, and if one of the starting ones is draw this way, no feat can allow another domain to be drawn this way. Also drawing a domain this way brings a -2 on the DC of any spells from that domain.

I have a question about that domain power. I'm not quite sure I understand why a Cleric of Amber who wants Passion and Fertility wouldn't be a Cleric of Nikki in the first place.

Also, "Her hair ripples like the ocean wind"? That must be one Baator of a typo.

While I'm on it, both of the Fertility Sisters carry glowing hearts. Am I supposed to be picturing a Valentine's Day-esque heart or a literal human heart? This is mythology, so it could go either way. I may look at the rest of the pantheon if I have time, though what you have should suffice for your players (it'll be mainly used in Commune spells and the like; you don't need to get too in-depth unless the gods will be extremely active).

Yes, that is a typo, it's supposed to e waves, no wind. The fertility thing is for domains gained by feats, I can think of one in particular, but I can't think of the name that lets you choose 1 more feat from your patron each time you take it, this allows that feat to take it from the toher sister as well. Starting domains have to come from your patron. As for the heart thing, it's the Valentine's heart.

But you realize where that hair thing is, don't you? In the middle of the Fertility domain subtext.

Gah, I didn't notice that.

Also, the goddess Anra sucks. It sounds better as Anar, (in my humble opinon) and even worse than the pronunciation is the restriction. If it were me, which it is not, I would lower the restriction to something more pervasive but less critical, like, say, being unable to sleep or something.

If even that, because any commoner who worships her will be a dead man/woman if they get too sick to pray.

Who said anything about Anra being the goddess everybody worshipped? Mayhaps her worshippers are primarily the great folk with PC levels.

You can still pray when sick. There's nothing in Anra's description that says you have to do anything particularly dramatic while praying. Simple meditation may even suffice.

Now, if they're actually comatose, catatonic, or otherwise unable to take mental action, I think Anra may be a little understanding about that.

Not sure I like the lightning, though. It's a touch... overdramatic.

What happens if they're indoors or underground or someplace where lightning doesn't reach?

Ball Lightning... But perhaps plain force damage is preferrable?

Untyped damage, with a disintigration effect, maybe. Though it still looks like following the Creator Goddess is suicidal, since you're pretty much forced to follow her the rest of your natural life (unless you're a barbarian, in which case there's a good chance of surviving the damage you take).

Why would anyone bother to worship anyone else. Hell, if your new god can't protect you from being hurt, why bother? Seems a tad unrealistic.

actually, it's only 1d4 damage per level. Almost any class could survive that, though a sorcerer or wizard, or a commoner might be likely to die, if the damage rolls where mostly above 2. But there is no way that is going to knock out anything else.

You do realize that Serbia is a country and Selene is the Greek goddess of the moon (not Artemis, who represents the moon but the Goddess that actually is the moon), right?

I just want to warn you before some player comes and bursts your bubble with that.

It looks good, though some of the gods look like Greek gods with name changes, (I mean, thats what TSR/WotC did). Some stories behind the gods would be nice, perhaps some information on the way they interact with each other. (beyond personality) And perhaps a family tree as well, its kind of hard for me to remember who maried who/is siblings with/is parent of/is child of in all that.

Sorry for coming off a bit critical
