    Images of Greyhawk gods

    Would anyone know where I could find images of all the Greyhawk gods, demigods and lesser powers. A public domain source would be great or if someone wants to contact me, just PM.

    All of them?!!! Who on oerth would undertake such an ambitious project! Just kidding. Laughing It is a very ambitious project and DMPrata is in the process of putting together such a thing right now. It is my understanding that it will be available for download.

    Bastard Greyhawk

    Rob has some images on his Bastard Greyhawk site. Check out his Deities page HERE and click on a few of the links inside of the text.

    Wizards of the Coast's contemporary Deities & Demigods has pictures of the core gods, too.

    Indeed, I have thusfar compiled illustrations for about 150 of 200 deities. If anybody is in a position to contribute some of the missing ones, please see this thread at Dragonsfoot.

    Yep, that's the plan. It's looking to be a lovely 1000-page document at this point. Shocked

    Well, I have kept my original Dragon magazine features of Greyhawk Deities and Demigods in a three ring binder. They are started to look a little faded and would need a refreshed look that I have seen grace some of the 3.5 line

    DMPrata will you drop me a line when the whole project is complete. BTW, is this a labour of love or a commercial product which I would have no problem forking over ten bucks or so for your effort.

    Happy While I would love to be compensated for the months of work, if I tried to make any money from it, Wizbro would be all over me for copyright infringement. Alas, the Deitybase must remain a "labour of love," as you put it. Sad I hope to be finished by April or May (illustrations permitting) and will certainly post a link to the 1000+ page document here.

    The Greyhawk Webcomic (esp the deities section) is a not to be overlooked source!

    DMPrata I just skimmed the thread at Dragonsfoot, but i didn't find any mention of the old Dragon articles. There are a lot of very nice pics of many gods in Dragon. Check out R.Richards Greyhawk in Dragon index for which gods were covered. I believe all of them had pics in the articles too. Most of them can be found in the Dragon Archive CDs and I have scanned many of the newer ones (Oeridian gods from Dragon 260ish). Let me know if you need any more info or those scans. (I haven't got an account over on Dragonsfoot and am loathe to dig through the 9 pages thread to see if you already have them though...)

    Polyhedron's Powers that Be articles cover some more gods. Check out this index here. Among them Boccob, St.Cuthbert, Procan, Xan Yae, Cyndor. (And possibly two more though i don't know which.) I have all of those listed above so if you need scan let me know.

    Dragon #294 has pictures of Iuz, Pholtus, Rao, and Tharizdun.

    And for Vecna, I quite like the Cover of the Vecna: Hand of the Revenant Comic Though his appearance has changed with editions. I believe Bastard Greyhawk has several images of his.

    Oerth Journal has a few Gods articles too, among them Norebo which afair has also a picture of the Dare Devil.

    You're including Demon Lords et al too right? There a very nice pic of Koschtschie on the cover of Dragon #119

    Newer Dragons had more Demon lords of course: Fraz Urbluu, Pazuzu, Zuggtmoy (new look!), ... not sure which other ones.

    The Suel deities list from Dragonsfoot mag #6 lists the vestments of many god's priests, which could help flesh out some details for the gods themselves in some cases. (I.e. perhaps Phaulkon too wears a feather cap, like his priests.)

    Great Project btw!!

    The original DRAGON articles were my first (and best) source. The first page of my thread at Dragonsfoot lists the 4050 deities for whom I still need images. They're generally some of the more obscure ones, not Heironeous & Co.

    If Procan and Cyndor include illustrations, send 'em my way "my name" at cox dot net. (Heck, I'll take info on Cyndor even without an illustration.) The others were well covered in the Glossography.

    I have the Rao and Tharizdun pics, and used Iuz and Pholtus from the above-mentioned DRAGON articles.

    I used an image from Die Vecna Die!.

    Again, I used the original DRAGON illustration.

    I'm including some demon lords, where there is evidence of them granting spells to worshipers on Oerth. Kostchtchie and Pazuzu I took from Monster Manual II. I found no reference to Fraz having priests, and I don't recognize Zuggtmoy as a true deity. (She was merely channeling power from the EEG.)

    Yeah, well... I had that material from Len before it appeared in Footprints. (I actually had to point out an error in Akwamon's alignment to him.) Cool

    While the pictures fom the old MM2 are ok, the Dragon 119 cover with Kostchstchie rocks! It's one of my favorite pieces of RPG art.
