  1. You should have the magic items you requested, but if you need anything else, shout at me.

  2. I can't imagine that a collection of Petty Gods would be organized in any fashion whatsoever. After all, each of them is more important than the others and most worthy of being elevated to Minor Lesser Godling status.

    1. They're not exactly happy about being alphabetized, it's true.

  3. One question, concerning it was encouraged to make references within the descriptions to create the image of a much greater cosmology, will the final product be bookmarked?

    1. Not certain, but there will be references with page numbers, possible footnotes, directing the reader to related articles in the book.

    2. Bookmarking is pretty easy to do; I would be happy to bookmark your pdf for you.

  4. And for Petty Gods' sake, make the table of contents a bunch of rollable lists.
    Won't somebody think of the children!?

  5. Gah, totally fell off my radar! Had an artifact and a space god that needed polishing, but given the time crunch, I'll save it for "next time". (Whatever that ends up being.)

  6. P.S. I hope there is some sort of follow-up project. (I checked my files and was a lot further along than I thought!)

  7. I do not envy you in terms of deciding how to organize this. Alphabetical seems the way to go given the original TSR monster tomes. But then Deities and Demigods was organized by cosmology/pantheon first, and then alphabetically within each one of those. Perhaps splitting the organization might be the best way to go -- organizing by cosmology when appropriate (a whole bunch of interconnected gods & goddesses, etc.) but keeping things basically either alphabetically or by sphere of influence.

    1. Maybe we need a "sample pantheon" based on the Curdle/Jale God mythos?
