ATTENTION YE AUGURS & DIVINERS
The Petty Gods Project lives again
Gorgonmilk has taken the reins of editor/layout chap and he's looking for new deity submissions to add to those being reassembled.
What is "Petty Gods" you ask?
A project originally conceived by Blair of Planet Algol and James Maliszewski of Grognardia. Here's what James had to say when he announced the idea for the book:
...The working title is Petty Gods and it's intended as an homage to Judges Guild's awesome Unknown Gods, which presented 83 minor gods -- complete with stats -- for use in your D&D adventures and campaigns.
And when I say "minor gods," I mean it: we're talking deities like the goddess of dancing girls, the god of summer storms, and the goddess of deep water fish, among others. That's the vibe I'm aiming for with this project too. If anything, I'd prefer that the divinities in Petty Gods be even more minor, esoteric, and obscure than those in Unknown Gods -- the kinds of beings worshiped only by a handful of devoted (and probably crazed) followers and whose power is limited enough that they could conceivably be offed by a party of appropriately bloody-minded PCs. In short, this is a "Monster Manual" for swords-and-sorcery in the manner of Elric.
How to (re-)submit a deity
Format your godling according to the example James provides here.
Send your write-up to Gorgonmilk, ye editor: flowthrake AT gmail DOT com
How to (re-)contribute artwork
It may not be possible to bring together all of the original illustrations that were intended to be part of the Petty Gods book. But several artists have already expressed interest in providing new illos, and I'm sure that there are more of you out there that would like to be a part of this. If you'd like to be on the PG Contributing Artist List, send Gorgonmilk an e-mail: flowthrake AT gmail DOT com
Once all of the petty godlings have been collated and organized, Gorgonmilk will forward a set of descriptions to the PG Contributing Artist List for those deities who need depictions. From that point the artists themselves can decide what god(s) they will be drawing and the project will be that much closer to completion.
I look forward to your submissions!
