I am basically using Keith Baker's stance on this subject word for word. You know, the creator of the setting. So, I'm definitely not just "making an assumption".Do they define gods in Eberron as you describe, or are you making an assumption?
(Sorry, I tried to find the specific article from him that I'm thinking of, but I can't seem to find it.)
That would require another book or errata. And this is such an obscure question that I understand why they wouldn't include it in Rising from the Last War, there was other stuff that needed to fill up the book and it was already the longest non-Core book in 5e.Also, clearly the issue is how they're described in the books, which seems to be an issue for some. Unless they change the text, your semantics solutions aren't going to cut it.
