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.

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

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.The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of God stands forever.

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?
