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, you ask?
The...
Battle of the Gods, Part VII!

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 Dragonlance, and for the Forgotten Realms, and so on. But which one is The Survivor?! Hold on to your sacraments, because we're gonna find out!

This is the sixth round, and the fifth pantheon presented is "Fantasy-Historical Pantheons: Greek Deities," on Page 298. The winner from this round will represent all Greek deities in the final round, when we put all of the winners together in the same arena to determine which one is The Ultimate Survivor!

Round 1: Forgotten Realms
Winner: Selune

Round II: Greyhawk
Winner: Boccob

Round III: Dragonlance
Winner: Takhisis

Round IV: Eberron
Winner: Olladra

Round V: Nonhuman Deities
Winner: Yondalla

Round VI: Celtic Deities
Winner: Lugh Lámfada

The Rules and Stuff
  • This time, only Greek Deities are presented.
  • I'll repeat: this week, only the Greek 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, spelling, irrational love or hatred of spelling, augury, whether they serve dolmas hot or cold, 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) features 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 might not be done at all; let's wait and see how everyone feels.
  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!

Where to start... Hercules, because I also agree he's not a god, and he's using his Roman spelling, and he's responsible for a lot of bad movies. As for the god of wine and good times, sounds good.
