    Default Legendary weapon assistance

    Im creating a legendary weapon for one of the characters in my group. He is a paladin/barbarian. the weapon is a +2 warhammer that allows him to gain and channel the blessings of the gods provided he earns the blessings (with enough blessings it becomes a +3). im just having some trouble with the blessings cause i want to come up with one for every god and allow him to earn them if he wants (he will still have to try) i am using my own pantheon and it has 33 different gods (all alignments, and domains included)

    a few examples (names changed to what they are the god of)

    graveyards and burial rites: You may cast the Spare the Dying cantrip. Additionally you may cast the Gentle Repose spell at will.

    justice and punishment: If you don't have the paladin's divine smite ability you gain the ability to use it twice as if it were a 1st level spell slot used. You regain all uses of this ability after a long rest. Further your divine smite counts any creature with an evil alignment as undead or fiend.

    time: You may cast the Haste spell or the Slow spell once. You regain the ability to do so after a long rest.


    I have 8 out of 33 blessings done. the gods (what they are the gods of) i dont have so far are:

    goodness and righteousness
    honorable deaths
    light and luck
    (guardian of) knowledge
    relationships and love
    the wild places
    glorious combat
    enlightenment
    riddles and hidden things
    magic
    secrets
    wind and sailors
    beauty (thinking at will disguise self)
    endings
    disaster
    revenge
    the sky and storms
    violence and slaughter
    conquest
    darkness
    nightmares and fear (once a day fear spell?)
    lost souls
    evil and spite
    betrayal
    lies and deceit

    any ideas are welcome and i may shorten the list as i figure out what i want to do for some of them.

    sorry for the long post and thanks for your time.

    My ideas for each of the listed domains

    Also, are these all going to be for a single item? That seems really strong unless they're temporary, or limited in how many can be active at one time.

    technically yes they will all be for one item but each blessing requires a quest or series of quests to earn and only 2 of them (justice and punishment, earth and fertility) are part of the campaign. all the rest are optional and im not going to tell him explicitly that they are out there. also if he has the blessings of any evil gods he will be unable to use/lose the blessings of good gods. so he wont be able to use all 33 at once.

    im doing this to help fill out the world and make it a living breathing place.

    i actually do like almost all your suggestions and i think i might use at least a portion of them

    You could also consider making an effect for each domain instead of each deity, and then using flavour to then specify those to certain gods. Would make for less but more specialized effects perhaps.
    Just an idea :)

    That is the direction I would try to go in. By having less features to come up with you allow yourself to put more effort into each one so they feel really good when your player attains them after completing the demands of a diety.
