Hello everyone, it's time for another Survivor thread! As you already know, I'll be taking over the Survivor 5E Threads for a little while...so if you have any suggestions for upcoming topics, feel free to DM me.

-----

This thread is inspired by prior threads that we've done.
The battle continues!
Which battle?
The...
Battle of the Gods, Part II!

Appendix B of the 5th Edition Player's Handbook has several tables dedicated to the Deities of the D&D game. There's a table for Greyhawk gods, and another table for Eberron, and for the Forgotten Realms, and so on. But which one is The Survivor?! Hold on to your sacraments, because we're gonnna find out!

The first pantheon presented is "Deities of Greyhawk," on Page 295...so it's the first pantheon to get the 5E Survivor treatment. We will examine the other deities from other pantheons in subsequent contests. Then, we will put all of the winners together in the same arena to determine which one is The Ultimate Survivor!

Round 1: Forgotten Realms
Winner: Selune

The Rules and Stuff
  • This time, only Greyhawk deities are presented. You might remember them from the earliest editions of the game, you might remember them from the 3rd Edition...but I bet you remember them.
  • Now since someone is about to ask "what about Shar?" on the first page of the thread, I'll repeat: this week, only the Greyhawk deities are presented.
  • Each deity starts with 20 points.
  • Every day, you vote for one deity that you like, which gains 1 point. And then you vote for a different deity that you dislike, which loses 2 points. It is intentional that a negative vote is worth more than a positive vote - first, because it takes something extra to whittle these guys down to size. Second, because.
  • Mark your upvotes in green, and downvotes in red. Or just show them in bold text and use "+1" and "-2" to mark them, if colored text is too difficult on your browsing device.
  • It's easier if you just copy and paste the previous poster’s vote and change the numbers.
  • You may vote only once per day in each category. This is an honor system, and we are all honorable gamers; please do not abuse it. If this means you vote once at night one day, and once the next morning - that's fine, but don't vote again until the following day. Rule of thumb: if your most recent vote post says "yesterday" in the date tag, you can vote again.
  • This is purely a popularity contest and you do not have to explain an upvote or downvote, but feel free to - explanations are where the fun is! When downvotes reach 0 the option/variant is removed from the list (FATALITY!).
  • Finally, if an entry has one vote left, then you have to make the choice to use all of your downvotes to eliminate it; there is no vote splitting. In addition, you can't upvote and downvote the same entry (no "see" votes). And you have to use BOTH YOUR UPVOTE AND DOWNVOTE if you vote.

The Most Important Bits
Three important points that you must read before voting--
  1. This is a pure popularity contest, and is meant to be fun. You can cast your votes for whatever reason you want; spite, irrational love or hatred, appearance, gameplay mechanics, tire pressure, mood, strategic voting, and so on are all perfectly acceptable. You can comment for the reasons for your vote, or not - up to you! But this is for enjoyment only.
  2. This week (and the next few weeks to come) featues a list of the deities in the 5th Edition Player's Handbook. Other deities from the 5E Player's Handbook will be done at another time. Deities that aren't listed in the 5E Player's Handbook won't be done at all.
  3. As always, the list is the list. If you have a complaint about the list, please direct it to /dev/null.
So. Onward to the contest!

Hm, I’m going to need to do a bit of reading to familiarize myself with the Greyhawk deities, as the few I do recognize are from reimaginings of them (such as Vecna, Pelor, Tharizdun, and Kord). I’d prefer to vote based on their Greyhawk showing specifically, like I did for the FR deities.

I'm not voting.
I am just your friendly voice of warning.

YOU DOWNVOTE THARIZDUN AT YOUR OWN PERIL. THARIZDUN DOES NOT FORGET, AND THARIZDUN DOES NOT FORGIVE.

Tharizdun is that nameless fear you have every night before the sleep takes you ... do not tempt Tharizdun's wrath.

Tough talk, for someone whose devotees don't even care enough to vote in a petty online popularity contest...
