    Ramenos the Great Frog

    Here's the fifth entry in my update to DMGR4 Monster Mythology, Ramenos the Great Frog. This entry was a lot of fun to write, actually, and I played quite a bit with some ideas I had. Look for a couple Spelljammer adventure hooks, too. Also, as there really haven't been any other amphibian deities written up before, I created quite a few spells for the priesthood. They should get PCs to fear the wimpy bullywugs a bit more.

    Great work all around. I like Ramenos as a bit more of a warrior and conquest deity and Skerrit as more of a Greek centaur (good job with those obscure centaur demigods from back in Dragon) but your work is first rate.

    Thanks for sharing it.

    Yeah, I was glad I came across those. I'd missed them when I wrote up my deity spreadsheet, so I was surprised to see them when I read the article on the centaurs. I'm sure I'll accidentally break from canon/already published ideas with a number of the gods, but I would like to minimize that as much as possible. Thanks for reading them, and look forward to more!

    Grolantor the Steading Lord

    The sixth entry in my DMGR4 Monster Mythology Update Project is the god of hill giants, mountain giants, ettins, and other similar giants, Grolantor the Steading Lord. I utilized a fair bit of information from Giantcraft, which actually has a lot of really good information; shame it was so poorly designed. As always, feel free to let me know if I missed a good bit of canon or semi-canon information.

    One again: just really cool work. Excited for Squerikk and the other lycanthropic deities!

    Thanks! One of the frustrating things I've just discovered is that there is no information on Squerrik other than DMGR4, other than a very brief mention in On Hallowed Ground's appendices and a single mention in Planes of Conflict.

    On the upside, it's almost impossible for me to inadvertently violate canon this way!

    On a hunch i googled Squerrik & ripvanwormer: Squerrik | Planewalker
    Also the GHWiki is a great source

    Both only list the two sources you found plus the http://www.wizards.com/rpga/download...LG_Deities.zip.

    Both of those and Wikipedia tend to all have the same exact text, copied directly from Monster Mythology. They are handy to check for other resources I might not be aware of initially though. I found two Dungeon adventures featuring Wererats and the Ecology of the Wererat in Dragon, but none mention their religious practices (only skimmed them so far, so there still might be other useful information, though).

    Yeah, I have that. Many of the MM deities lack descriptions in it, unfortunately.

    I was really hoping Planes of Conflict would have a description of Squerrik's realm, but it does not.

    Maglubiyet the Mighty One

    Entry number seven is here, temporarily skipping Trishina (she'll be ready soon though), is Maglubiyet the Mighty One. His canon was lighter on the details than Grolantor, surprisingly, but I added some interesting stuff, I think. Feel free to chime in with your thoughts!
