    Looks like dude is stuck with being our Love God.

    Well it's D&D Magic, so there's also rules about you probably can't/shouldn't mess with other clerics' magic as that starts weird divine conflicts. But You probably have a majority of the Arcane worshipers.

    I certainly HOPE so! If not on it's one we could still make it one I guess.

    Besides, seems here we're lumping death and dead together. I'll just have minions to gather souls for me. If you're good, you get to be guided to the afterlife by something comforting (kindly old grandma, Baymax from Big Hero 6, a puppy, etc.). If you're not, you get something terrible (a skeletal monster, a demonic clown, Violator from Spawn in his true form, etc.) to drag you to the afterlife.
    Well it's D&D, so they may have to go to the respective planes of their alignment to be judged and given an appropriate afterlife. And that's before Gods want to actually get involved with specific super-heroic souls.

    How do you mean? Even the OP gave the Death purview as also having power over the Underworld and Ghosts/Undead.

    Does the D&D connection mean the Skyfather and Earth Mother are effectively Ao and the Lady of Pain?

    Also, If we’re using the D&D cosmology, I get like 50% of the Outer Planes. That’s pretty sweet.

    I thought it was like a 1/3rd (Neutral gets their share too) and you had to split it with the other Evil Gods, even you were the embodiment of Evil.

    Shai, you might wish to document the pantheon by updating the original post. I'm having to do a certain amount of hopping about to keep track.

    Nah, basically all ur cheeseburgrz south of Limbo and Mechanus are belong me.

    Which, OK, means Mechanus and Limbo aren’t Good or Evil. So I only get 7 out of 16.

    Lord Cthulhu can have Limbo. He’s welcome to it.

    *shrug* I'll let you and any other Evil Gods that show up work it out. I'm sure you'll find some way to determine who gets to use what.

    May I recommend a Blood War? That'll keep the forces of Evil nice and distracted for Good to make huge strides in the mortal realm. :P

    Actually, I’m feeling generous. I’ll let you have Acheron. It is the infinite battlefield, after all.

    Sky Father welcomes you all.

    Lord KingofPie, your body becomes a physical perfection, not merely in strength, stamina and durability, but in all the qualities needed to excel in athletic events of all sorts, making you the Olympics master of the gods. What olympic gold medalists are to ordinary humans, you are to the average god, in terms of strength, dexterity and constitution. You get to be King of Mountains too, which is not only literal, but speaks to your durability as well.

    Lady Kirika, you are now goddess of wealth and money in all its forms, as well as business and commerce itself. You're also goddess of luck and the wheel of fortune, so gamblers and traders both pray to you, as does any mortal engaged in commerce. Add in being the goddess of home and heath and everything domestic in that sense, so homemakers pray to you, as well as newly married people starting their own household for the first time.

    Lord Sub-Zero MKA, as Lord of Medicine, your sphere also includes purity and absolution, both of body and spirit. As god of potions, you're a master of alchemy, sort of what Severus Snape would be if he had a thousand years of study and knew every potion on his world. As to poisons and disease, you're free to use them harmfully, but really, it's more a matter of healing them. (His Duckness of Darkness is Master of Assassins... although a partnership between the two of you would be extremely unexpected.) I suppose you could be an evil physician if you chose; it's not like they don't exist (makes me think of the Hannibal TV show).

    Finally, Lord Shai-Hulud becomes god of Love, Beauty, Sex, Pleasure, Courtship and Etiquette. Well, it's not as if I won't have fun. I'll try not to start Trojan Wars that end up both pitting the entire Pantheon against itself for a decade and pointlessly killing off the best mortal heroes like flies. And destroying entire high civilizations, like Troy itself. No, I won't do that. Really, I'll be good, I promise....

    I think this calls for a classic piece of Grampagen group art.
