Heres a reference sheet of the deities in my campaign taking place on the supercontinent of Sauria. The people of Sauria primarily worship a pantheon of nine deities, one of each alignment, though there are four additional deities outside the pantheon.
Each god is represented by a powerful divine creature known as a Deus.



All members of the pantheon grant access to the Scalykind (Saurian) subdomain.


Koloss represents the sovereignty of the saurian gods. He is the god of stone and earth. Most believers think the great central mountain range of Sauria is the sleeping body of their lord.
Koloss instructs those in power to rule wisely, and in the best interest of their people, but also wishes all to respect those in authority over them.
Deus: Titanosaur
Domains: Law, Good, Community, Earth, Glory, Healing, Repose
Subdomains: Sovereignty, Home, Petrification, Legend, Restoration

Old boneskin is the patron god of most healers. He teaches all to do whatever they can to help others, though never at the cost of personal safety.
Deus: Ankylosaurus
Domains: Good, Earth, Healing, Strength, Protection
Subdomains: Metal, Medicine, Resolve, Fortification
Favored Weapon: Greatclub



Pathmaker is the god of exploration. Followers of Pathmaker love to break new ground and discover the world around them, both physically and intellectually. They believe their purpose is to go off on grand adventures with the goal of one day returning home to share their newfound knowledge with their people.

Subdomains: Riot, Catastrophe, Revolution, Competition, Duels

The following gods are outside of the main pantheon, and worship of them is mostly restricted to certain regions.




The innermost depths of the Great Jungle have never been seen by mortal eyes. The Heart of the Jungle is the very essence of that dense wilderness given form and deified. It is widely revered throughout the jungle, even by worshipers of other gods.

The following gods are outside the main pantheon, should not be known by players, and have ties to the story.




The Forgotten was once a member of the saurian pantheon, but was displaced by Triad with the help of It that Lurks. Once a god of oceans, as his name and nature faded from memory he became something new and twisted. His worship has recently begun anew, and the god is now one of death, amnesia and decay.

Looks like a fun pantheon. Are you playing all saurials or are there humans too?

Yes, quite funny pantheon. Strangelly the more the list goes from Koloss to The Devourer the more the appaerance of the Deus looks like something from the Zallinger's paintings in my mind.
