As this project is written for 2nd Edition, and at the point of 2nd Edition canon, some of those entities are outside the scope of the project. Specifically, Sss'thasine'ss, M'daess, the World Serpent, and Zehir are all from later editions. Varae is an aspect of Sseth, who is covered in Powers & Pantheons, and Dendar is a unique non-divine entity. Finally Set and Sobek are Egyptian deities, not strictly reptilian deities (and Set historically was associated with mostly mammals anyway). Thanks for the suggestions, though! :)

Remnis, the Great Lord of the Eagles

Flying through the skies of the upper planes is Remnis, the Great Lord of the Eagles. He is said to be the ultimate aerial hunter, and with his great eyesight, he spies out secrets throughout the planes. He perches on the heights of Mount Celestia and in the boughs of the World Tree Yggdrasil, awaiting the call to service.

Blibdoolpoolp the Sea Mother

Nearly insane, Blibdoolpoolp the Sea Mother is patron of the declining subterranean race of kuo-toa. She hates humanity for the ancient wars that drove her race underground, and is well pleased when her followers sacrifice them to her. She is rumored to know great secrets of ancient magics, but in her insanity, she shares them with no one.

i;ve always been fascinated by this lobster headed god since I first got the 1e Deities and Demigods . Your entry is a wee bit more in depth - thank you for sharing!
 
Yes - since D2 this god has been used by me. Kuo-Toa are just so alien and their goddess helps drive that point home. For me, I find their madness much more 'natural' then the derro...Great job AuldDragon!

Merrshaulk the Serpent Lord

While still powerful, the somnolent Merrshaulk the Serpent Lord is in a slow decline. His chosen followers are the insidious yuan-ti, who lurk in ruins of ancient cities, either remnants of their own past or the remains of places they corrupted and destroyed. His lack of direct attention to his followers has led to a usurpation of his power by other deities on more than one world, however.

Linroth Fleet-Hoof

One of the four minor centaur deities mentioned in Dragon Magazine #103, Linroth Fleet-Hoof is a deity of speed, traveling, and merchants. I drew some inspiration from nomadic steppe peoples for the write-up, as well as some elements from Greek mythology.

Persana, Guardian of the Deep

Persana, Guardian of the Deep is the creator and patron of the tritons, having sculpted them from elemental water and breathed life into them. He is known as one of the greatest architects of the multiverse, having designed a wide variety of wonders throughout the planes. While aloof and generally uninterested in the affairs of others, he recognizes that the other good and neutral races of the deep are more likely to keep to agreements and defend allies in need, and so has thrown his lot in with them.

Fanthros Storm-Hooves is the patriarch of the small clan of four deities, who all serve under Skerrit the Forrester. Among the small centaur pantheon, Fanthros is the deity of weather, the sky, and agriculture.

Another great entry and keep up the good work. Your work is an inspiration for my own 5e updates to demigod, deities and epic monsters in general. But I have a long way to go to match the breadth and depth of your work. Thank you for sharing!

Chitza-Atlan, the Guardian of the Gateway to the Underworld

The most unusual centaur deity is Chitza-Atlan, the Guardian of the Gateway to the Underworld, an interloping undead deity who is said to guard the passage to the underworld and the afterlife. Little is known of his origins, but he has connections with the lord and lady of the dead, Mictlantecuhtli and Mictanchihuatl, and is known to the Olman peoples of Oerth.

Demorgorgon, the Prince of Demons

Powerful enough to claim the title of Prince of Demons, Demogorgon is a foul lord of of the Abyss who has achieved true divinity. Favoring the intelligent shallow-water rays known as ixitxachitl, he focuses on domination and the draining of life energy from victims in order to increase his own power.
