Hi All

Follwing the work I did on the Amber Company Symbol Thread

http://www.enworld.org/showthread.php?t=126740

I recieved a request for a number of symbols of gods and organisations which I am going to share with the group, and also add that if anyone needs a symbol for a god or a merc company, just let me know what symbol you are after and, time permitting, I will do my best to come up with something.

OK on with the symbols

1. Palador LG God of Honour/Justice (Blue shield with silver longsword and crown)



2. Sadian TN God of Magic/Time (Circle divided in two by S-shape, half red/orange)



3. Zandar CE God of Evil, Death (Black banner with white skull and 'evil runes')



4. Vexen LE Goddess of Seduction (Purple circle with white full moon and bat silhouette)



Thats all for now, but more later.

I thik the Amber company one is the best, but these are great none the less.
Thanks, I enjoyed doing them all. These are a little less specified and thus a little more symbolised.

OK two more of the 28 symbols :)

5. Nargast NE God of Destruction (Red shield with two white hands dripping with blood)

I'm not entirely happy with the blood on this, but I'll revisit when I have done the others :)

6. Theras NG Goddess of Protection (White shield with warhammer on red circle)


More to follow.

8. Damara LN Goddess of Knowledge (Dark blue banner with tome and candle)



9. Heketor CN God of Trickery (Grey lozenge with curved silver dagger)



Next the five realms.

These are all from my Goldenstar campaign setting.

I am overwhelmed by the work from John Milner of UKG Publishing and his rapid and kind response to my request. If anyone wants more details of these deities, here's the place to ask.

There are 9 gods, one of each alignment, as I wanted to keep things as simple as possible.

Thanks again John.

BTW, the name of the LG god "Palador" was chosen to "correct" a long-standing irritation of mine with the name of this class... it being the only one not a 'standard' English word (like Wizard, Cleric, or even Ranger).

Since the Goldenstar setting is aimed at being as "simplistic" as possible (like many, many others I see on the message boards at the moment, after 20 years of DM-ing, I'm aiming for that '1st edition feel' with Goldenstar)

Thus the name "Palador" was chosen so that his loyal knights could be called... "Paladins". Simple, really :).

As a matter of interest, most PC Monks of Goldenstar are TN... they are the zealous guardians/bodyguards of the members of the Wizards League, and are hand-picked from street urchins/orphans etc., fed, clothed, trained night and day, etc., and are (usually) fiercely loyal. As the god of magic is called Sadian, they are called the Sadianite Monks.

There are two other monastic orders... the evil followers of Nargast known as The Bloody Hands (who cut their hands before battle, or bathe them in the blood of sacrificial victims), and the Whitecloaks, the monastic followers of Theras. They wear - obviously - white cloaks, but their hems are stained and splashed with red dye (representing blood, in homage to the first Whitecloaks as they appeared after fighting in an ancient battle of great importance).

These little details are bringing the setting to life in a way I feel I haven't achieved before.

BTW, in Goldenstar, the demi-human races (Dwarves, Elves and Gnomes... don't use halflings) are Druidic in nature... and are linked to the elements... Dwarves to earth, Elves to air, Gnomes to water (fresh, not salt... thay are a race of gypsies who camp beside the rivers they love so much). These 3 are the 'Elder Races', the 4th being the Dragons (linked to the element fire)... all the Dragons in Goldenstar are red, fire-breathers.

While humans can become wizards or witches of great power, they treat magic like a tool, and its study like a science... they call its use "The Talent". Elves, on the other hand, have magic in their blood, and believe that it unites all living things. They call it "The Source" (yeah, there are hints of Star Wars' 'The Force' there), and thus their magic-users are called.... "Sorcerers" (geddit?). Gnomes have learned some mastery of "The Source" from the Elves, but the Dwarves and Elves don't get on (as usual), so no Dwarven Sorcerers.

And my Dark Elves live above ground, like Feist's.

More ramblings may follow.

Wow. These look really great. :cool:
By the way one suggestion. If they looked less like shields I could very well insert them into my future settings as symbols of organisations. ;)

Could you create a symbol with a severed orcish hand holding a battleaxe on gray shield? This is the symbol of All United Goblinoids of Amn. (called in goblinoid language as Tha'Ushur)
I hope this all makes sense :D

2) The Scarlet Sect (Black shield with red demonic eye symbol)
