Very interesting! Although I would rather have seen some of the table of contents concerning the Bestiary, this is quite intriguing as well!
Well, that's about I'd expect: I'd call that not much further. Probably about as much as the Order God's in Volo's.Crawford said that the book will go in "a lot of depth about the drow pantheon". He confirmed that Eilistraee, Ghaunadaur and Vulkoor will all get sections dedicated to them in the book when asked. That leads to me that most of the drow and elven gods will receive a writeup like the ones that the FR human deities received in the SCAG (that certainly isn't "a lot of depth", if we compare it to the 2e and 3e treatments, but it certainly seems to be by 5e standards).
Likely. However, given the sheer number of elven deities (we're at like 19-20, if we include the FR-specific drow gods, Eberron's Vulkoor, and Ghaunadaur), that will take up quite a lot of space.Well, that's about I'd expect: I'd call that not much further.

Yeah, that seems more likely, especially since those cover both FR and Greyhawk: Dragonlance, Eberron and other settings I expect will be more of a sidebar.[MENTION=6670153]gyor[/MENTION] They will never include that many deities. I went with the drow and elven deities listed in the SCAG, those are most likely to covered by the MToF (in addition to the Eberron ones).
I think that's fairly likely as those two would complete the Pantheon for the Greyhawk Drow the Mork is a Greyhawk Wizard.Personally, I hope they bring back Zinzerena and Keptolo, from the Oerthian Drow Pantheon, as I think they're a lot more interesting than most of the FR Drow pantheon.
A lot of lore was published about the drow gods in 2e, especially Eilistraee (if you go to the FR Wiki, you will find exhaustive writeups of most of those gods, their followers, and their orders, like this one. Past tense is a policy of the wiki, the pages about the drow gods seem to be mostly updated to the 5e status).I'd like to see the Drow pantheon expanded beyond just "There's a bunch of gods who are all subservient to Lolth, and then Elistrae, who is a rebel". Lolth worshippers get a lot of exposure because Drizz't, but from a lot of previous lore, there were plenty of Drow cities where Lolth worship took a distant back seat to Ghaundar and/or Kiransalee.
29 Seldarine Gods, 9 Dark Seldarine Gods are listed in the table, but most don't get a blurb. The table lists name, Portifilios, Domain, and symbol, the basics to use the God.Likely. However, given the sheer number of elven deities (we're at like 19-20, if we include the FR-specific drow gods, Eberron's Vulkoor, and Ghaunadaur), that will take up quite a lot of space.
Perhaps because those Seldarine Gods are the most broadly useful for Players, although some Dark Seldarine Gods do have none Drow worshippers too.Yeah, but while (surprisingly) all the Dark Seldarine get a write-up, only a handful of the Seldarine do (their write-ups seem to be more in-depth, tho, while those for the Dark Seldarine are much more superficial. Idk why they made this choice, there's at least as much lore about the drow gods as there is about the elven ones. Whatever, I guess...).
Idk. Lolth hates her own children's (Eilistraee and Vhaeraun) guts, their worship is the worst kind of heresy that you can commit in a city under her control, and she does her best to keep Eilistraee's existence a secret. Ghaunadaur is just Ghaunadaur. As for Zinzerena, Lolth subsumed her in the Realms, although she perseveres outside of Toril.That is just what She wants them to think. If She wanted to micromanage other gods, she would be LE not CE.
