    Post Comprehensive Deity Database

    Click here for the spreadsheet

    Alternatively, view it as a webpage.

    The initial data for this project came from IMarvinTPA's deity search tool. I noticed that it was incomplete, and decided to expand it (but I don't know how to do cool searchable databases, so I copied it into a spreadsheet and went from there). I've added all the deities I could find that were missing. I also added sources and portfolio information, as well as classifying deities by their pantheons and the settings they appear in (or lack thereof).

    It's actually not entirely complete, but I think it's pretty close! At least close enough for me to feel comfortable turning it loose and crowdsourcing any further revisions, anyway.

    You can right-click at the top of a column to sort it by that value. You can also click the filter button to filter the sheet or use a preset filter view.

    Excellent resource--thank you very much! I won't be using this right away, but this absolutely will be something to put in the back pocket.

    This is definitely something I need when making my clerics. For the life of me, I can't seem to find a list of deities on the SRD!

    That's because they're not part of the OGL. Wizards didn't want to give up the trademark rights.

    Very cool, good job putting this together. :)

    I made a thread recently asking about Good or Neutral gods with the Darkness domain. I'm not sure about which sources you're specifically adding from but I scanned your spreadsheet and only found one with the Darkness domain that wasn't Evil; Ibrandul. The thread I linked mentioned a few more, in case you're looking to add them.

    I'd need sources. All of them are either on the list already and didn't have that domain in the source I looked at, or are from a previous edition.

    This is a great example of why I thought the portfolios would be a useful addition, incidentally!

    Most of the stuff I copied directly from there ended up with hyperlinks because I also copied the formatting and didn't bother removing them. So, if there's no hyperlink, it's probably my addition. Well, either that or I changed the name (usually for alphabetization purposes, e.g. from "The Fury" to "Fury, The") and the hyperlink went away in the process.

    Thumbs up Re: Comprehensive Deity Database

    Nice resource.

    I have an Excel sheet full of deities somewhere; I'll check that against this list and see if I can add anything.

    Saying that someone reading RAW differently than you is "home brewing or house ruling, but that's fine" doesn't make you right, it just makes you seem pompous.
