Yahweh (Demiurge Stage I CR 665)

A towering robed creature roars in fury that seems... rather unlimited. Out of the constant sounds, you can make out few, but some, words "I AM the LORD thy GOD." It's snaking, well, snake heads jaws open and snap shut; while multiple pairs of flaming wings spread behind it. Massive claws like the feet of a bird shred the air itself into millions of ribbons. The heat is unbearible. "Burn in MINE Holy Fires, Ye heretical fiends!"

Yahweh's preferred form is that of a flaming, angelic reptilian humanoid with seven serpent's heads, complete with claws and wings made entirely of dancing curtains of flame. Its true form is a massive serpent made of light and flame with the mane of a lion and 12 wings.

Alter Reality (Su)
Once per round as a free action Yahweh can duplicate any spell of 49th-level or less. This ability can also duplicate any epic spells of a DC equal to 702 or less. Other use of this ability are GM’s discretion.

Bright Aura (Su)
Yahweh cannot even be seen because of the immense about of heat and photons he ejects from his form. Any creature within a radius of 4.900 ft., is blinded and affected as if by a symbol of death and a symbol of weakness, however there is no hit point limit for these effects. All targets must make a Fortitude save DC 469 every round they are within the area to avoid the effect.

Divine Traits (Demiurge Stage I) (Ex)
As a demiurge stage I, Yahweh gains a +64 divine bonus to: armor class; attack rolls; checks (ability checks, caster level checks, skill checks, etc.); difficulty class (for any special abilities, spell-like abilities, spells); initiative; saving throws and spell resistance. Yahweh’s natural attacks or any weapons it wields, are treated as epic for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. A demiurge stage I does not age, requires no air to breathe, no food or drink to sustain itself, nor sleep.

Fire Body (Su)
Anyone touched by, or touching Yahweh suffers divine fire damage equal to the base dice of the attack. Yahweh can chose to not inflict the positive damage of its natural attack (mainly against living targets, to avoid healing them).

Immunity to Magic (Ex)
Yahweh is immune to all spells, spell-like abilities and supernatural effects except as follows:

A dispel evil spell deals 1 point of damage per spell level. (do not work for Unreal unless originated by a creature/source of another universe)

Holy smite affects him normally. (do not work for Unreal unless originated by a creature/source of another universe)

A deeper darkness spell, instead of the normal effect, affects Yahweh as a shatter spell affects a crystalline creature, but deals only half normal damage.

Interdimensional (Ex)
A demiurge exists just as much in the space between dimensions. When targeted with an attack or spell, the demiurge has a base 50% chance of avoiding the attack.

Lord of Flames (Su)
Once per day, as a standard action, Yahweh can wrap a shroud of fire around a single opponent. This attack deals divine fire damage equal to Yahweh’ own full hit point total (no save) and has a range of 4.900 ft.

Mythic (Ex)
Yahweh has Mythic Power (64/day, Surge +64d6) and counts as a 64th-rank Mythic creature. Yahweh can use any of its Alter Reality and spell-like abilities effect as the Mythic versions of those spells (if a Mythic version of that spell exists), expending Mythic Power as normal. Yahweh can also expend Mythic Power to use the augmented versions of these spells.

Protective Aura (Su)
This aura acts as an octuple strength magic circle against evil (+16 deflection and +16 resistance bonuses) and an anti-magic field (that doesn’t impede Yahweh magic) for anyone within its area of effect. Both effects have a radius of 19.600 ft. (caster level 544th). This aura can be dispelled (by epic magic), but Yahweh can create it again as a free action on its next turn.

Ray of False Redemption (Su)
Yahweh can deliver a ranged touch attack with a range of 78.400 feet. Targets struck by this beam have their alignment changed to lawful evil and they start to worship Yahweh as their only true god. There is no save for this ability, however, those beyond morality, such as beings with the apostasy power are immune. The worship part is a charm, compulsion, mind-affecting affect.

Splendrous Visage (Su)
In addition to its protective aura, those who gaze upon Yahweh’s majestic brilliance may be destroyed utterly. Anyone within a 78.400 ft. radius of Yahweh is instantly obliterated unless they currently have 120 Hit Dice or more. There is no saving throw for this affect. Yahweh can block this effect by using four of its wings to cloak itself, each wing used in this manner reduces the effect by 30 Hit Dice. For each wing used to cloak itself, Yahweh lost one wing attack.

Summon Angel (Sp)
Once per day Yahweh can summon 6 seraphim or 24 cherubim.

Transcendental Might (Ex)
Yahweh deals d100's for base damage dice of all melee, natural weapon, and unarmed attacks with virtual size categories, and its damage dice cannot go below this dice but this cannot increase to more dice than Yahweh HD.

Really?

OK . . . Yahweh is one of the names of God for both Christians and Jews TODAY. Right now. To put game stats to the concept, especially as an evil deity, is pretty disrespectful.
Based on the Old Testament God is not good even by mistake. It is a vengeful and punishing god. For the rest I created it simply because I thought that possibly interested people could come in handy. For the rest I'm sure that if I had created the stats for Brahma or Khali no one would have made a fuss even if they are currently worshiped. I am a Catholic Christian, born into a Christian family and raised according to Christian values but I have no problem saying that what I have created is a fictional entity, with powers of fiction, which does not represent minimally the god I have learned to worship and respect. What I have created is a fictional entity that rests on foundations of ethics and morals of 3000 years ago and which is not reflected in our time in the slightest. The God of the Old Testament is a ruthless god but because the world of the time WAS cruel and merciless. For a Jew of the time, such a god at the time seemed good and right but in the eyes of us 21st century people, according to our morality, according to our ethics, he is surely evil. This has nothing to do with the God of the new testament, created according to different morals and ethics, but this is another matter.

I thought that too, initially, then realized there is currently a survivor thread about Nordic gods...
Now that's a good discussion . . . is it okay to game-ify the Nordic deities worshiped by some today, but not okay to game-ify the Christian/Jewish God? A discussion that would be hard to have and follow the rules here on ENWorld.

There are some differences, however. While everyone has their own opinions, their own lines they don't want crossed, traditionally Christians and Jews don't appreciate their religion being trivialized like @Obly99 is doing here with Yahweh.

The Nordic deities have a history of being seen as "myths" and stories, and the neo-pagan Norse revival is a relatively recent phenomenon. Most Norse neo-pagans, at least that I've met, don't have a problem with their deities being used in fantasy stories or games. Possibly because they have a different relationship with their deities than Christians and Jews do with theirs. However, I'm not a follower of Asatru (Norse neo-paganism), nor am I a Christian (although, raised Catholic).

But there is a reason why WotC hasn't published an updated "Deities & Demigods" with D&D versions of world mythological figures. I'm glad they stayed away from that minefield.

Using real-world religion in your stories and/or games isn't inherently wrong . . . . but it's easy to cross the line into something disrespectful, even without that being the intent.

Again, really?!?!

Yahweh is certainly a mythic figure that predates both Christianity and Judaism and is fascinating to read and study about.

But the fact remains you've created an "evil" game version of a figure worshipped TODAY. Right now. I assume it was not your intent, but this is incredibly disrespectful.

And people did complain in those threads about some of WotC choices, like Hades being designated as Evil I'm the PHB. I doubt the 2024 revision will retain the real world pantheons.

Big difference between a goofy popularity contest and a "Lawful Evil" writeups the Jewish God tying into antisemitic tropes.
I did not create this post to insult or offend neither Christians nor Jews. I simply retrieved a creature created nearly 10 years ago and completed it. Then if someone feels offended, there is nothing I can do about it other than saying I'm sorry but I have no intention of being told that I am anti-Semitic.

There is a long history of game stats for RL deities. I don't think one deity should be excluded and others allowed. If your fine (and you may not be) with Norse and Greek gods (some of which are still worshipped) and many Asian gods, then Abrahamic gods should be fair game IMO.

I understand it is a sensitive topic for some, but it is a game. We just have to let go a bit IMO, it is a game.

It's sort of like writing up the Norse God's and assigning them all to Chaotic Evil because they are Pagans.

Though you make a compelling case for not using real world deities.

And the other group of atheists, who think they are all just pretend anyway so what's the big deal with one but not the other?

Personally, I wouldn't stat out any RL deity, because it doesn't cost me anything to be respectful and there is no reason to do something I know will offend others. Heck, I'm currently working on Twilight Fables, which is based on real historical folklore, but I'm intentionally leaving out anything that would resemble a stat write-up for gods and goddesses from that folklore. Heroes? Sure. Deities? Nope.

The "It's just a game" excuse is weak. Sorry.

There is a long history of putting game stats to real-world deities and mythic figures . . . and when it crosses over into people's religious beliefs, it gets dicey quickly. We can do better.

Damn! I forgot WotC included real-world deity lists in the 5E PHB. Not surprised that some folks took issue with the specifics. I agree, the 2024 books will likely not include that. Or at least I hope they won't!
