    True enough, but not IMC.

    Just like you are using dragons to grant priest spells, I too have
    changed BR to suit my gaming group. Whereas you are using more and
    varied deity entities, I am using less. But only because I want to
    focus the game to make to an even more humanocentric pantheon. IMC,
    humans are the dominant force, and I'm trying to reflect that.

    This is true, but I feel that more humans practice worshipping (Haelyn)
    compared to goblins who do not actively practice (the worship of
    Belinik, IMC), and therefore even though there are more goblins Belinik
    doesn't receive more 'faith' than Haelyn does (for instance). So,
    Belinik still retains 'Lesser' Status IMC.

    In other words, Belinik might have larger 'province levels' (province
    values) of 'lambs', but Haelyn owns more 'faithful' holding-pens
    (temples) from his 'lambs'. Same goes for dwarves. Humans outnumber
    them a lot to 1.

    Cheers,
    Darren

    Why do you say that? If that were true, shouldn't there also be dwarves and
    elves all over the world?

    Is there room for more gods in Cerilia? If yes, what kind of gods would you like to see the most?

    A series of demipowers could easily be inserted in the already existing pantheon without to much disruption.

    Again, I would have to agree with you. There is a place for more gods. Be they Demi-Powers or Gods from other lands.

    I keep thinking about the Serpent and wonder if in other lands scoins may have risen to godhood in a demi-power state.

    Would be interesting to see more about this.

    There are rumors that there are clerics who worship the Sphinx and the cats of that domain.

    The Kraken is worshiped as a god by the fishy-thingies that live in the Brecht Bay.

    People worship rocks and statues and call them gods...
    People exhalt themselves as gods and make all sorts of false claims...

    More important than the question of should their be more gods is, "What is the definition of a "god" in this cosmic foolishness?" If a god simply comes into existence when beings 'believe' in it is it truly a god? At what point does it come into existence? Who created Cerilia? If gods draw strength from the number of their followers are/were they powerless without followers or before the existence of man?
