    Seeing a few ideas about real-life gods interacting in a homebrew setting, I was left wondering; what would God, as in Yahweh, look like in the 4th Edition pantheon? I'd say Civilization, Hope, and Life domains, but that seems too generic. Would Jesus and the Holy Spirit be His exarchs? Considering Bahamut shows up as a statted monster alongside the other, more evil gods, could He be fought? I'm really drawing a blank on what powers He and Jesus would have.

    i would say knowledge over civilization, Yahweh/Jehovah would probably base himself entirely in Celestia and probably all angels could claim service to him and some middle eastern gods (where the idea of angels comes from). Jesus is like Heracles a child of the diety but also at the same time is god in human form so some sort of Exarch/Avatar hybrid probably alot of paladin and priest spells, heal wounds, revive, miracle, banish, detect evil, purify food and water. I dont know about the holy spirit since that's essentially the will of Yahweh. this would also bring in new hierarchy of angels unlike the ones on Celestial, you would have to have the Metatron, the 4 great angels (Micheal, Gabriel, Uriel, Raphael) and other important angels, sandalaphon,Raguel Kaliel etc as well as new angel types based on the hierarchy


    and maybe include the human hybrid Nephelim
    and maybe the 4 horsemen and other stuff.

    also irony DnD already acknowleged Lucifer and Satan, Lucifer being a ruler of the 9 hells who disappeared for some reason whether Asmodeus usurped him or he just left, know one knows.

    I would put it more at Lawful Neutral, than Lawful Good. Certainly, Christ would be Neutral Good, but Yahweh is certainly Lawful Neutral.

    Given that the worshipers tended to be that, with a huge sticking towards obedience towards the rules, than the meaning of the rules, you get the civilization of Jerusalem.

    Plus, following the creation of Yahweh, who comes from the god of war Elshadai, he is very into blood sacrifices and killing of anyone who is not of the chosen people.

    Christ is Neutral Good, and might even be at odds with his 'Father'. Gaebriel would be Lawful Good, while Sa-Tan would be, also, extremely Lawful Neutral.

    The Bible has quite a few awesome concepts for running games, really.

    Here also have a completely random Aboleth.

    His domain shouldn't be hope. There's nothing in the Christian faith about hope. Hope results from the Forgiveness folio, but that's incidental to humanity, not the actual dogma itself. I'd say his portfoio would be Law, Humanity and Forgiveness (it's part of the faith, if not, frequently, the people that practiced it historically).

    Oh, cool to see people using my Yahweh design. I had ideas for him.

    He'd be a god of desert dwarves (Jews). I'd use all of the angels as described in the Bible as his servents, as well as Djinni. Basically make the fantasy religion of Yahweh as a mixture of Jedaism, Christianity, and Islam.

    Greater Power, Lawful Neutral.
    Various angels would over see things in heaven and his earthly domains, Djinn would be his liaison between him and mortals.

    Appearance wise I went with a big fire and eye thing due to many angels being made of fire and having many eyes as well as Djinn being made of smokeless fire.

    The only issue is how does a omnipotent, omnipresent, and omnibenevolent god mix in with other real gods that are less than that powerful?

    Cause in Biblical sense, the pagan gods either didn't exist or were just fallen angels using their far smaller abilities to capture worshipers to them.

    Power wise, I say stick with fire aspects, but also go by what Moses, Joseph, Jesus and such could do. Lots of nature abilities such as plagues and raining fire (both in Egypt and Sadam and Gammorah). His blessings were things like enhanced strength.

    Think of a high level wizard or druid with a perchant for fire spells, animal conjuration, and buffing. Considering how in the old days he had many warriors under him, he could also be a warrior god, going into battle himself. Imagine a big, flaming snake man wielding a sword and a spear.

    Jesus/Yeshua on the other hand would just be a straight, non combat, cleric. Food conjuration, healing and such. If his father is a warrior, Yeshua is more the complative and peaceful kind. Lawful Neutral versus Neutral Good.

    I'd say if you were going to make him omnipresent, omnipotent, and the like make it over something limited. If he's made of fire and covered in eyes; make it so he can view through flames and the fires burning inside those who worship him. He can give guidance and all that jazz regular deity style; and it allows enough room for non-believers to avoid him or disbelieve him while also letting him have an eye on his enemies.

    or something.
    >> The Harlequin Rose 09/29/11(Thu)00:49 No.16461163

    Simple, dont make him omnipotent. No god in such a setting should be. Yahweh isn't the only god considered omnipotent. Hell plenty of other gods were capable of easily destroying the world. Aztec gods could eat the world, then you had the Persian god and devil, the devil dragon was capable of destroying the whole universe but only didn't because their god was stronger.

    We will just say that the gods aren't nearly as powerful as their worshippers think. The chiefs of pantheons will be on par with each other, Zeus, Odin, Yahweh, Ra, Great Spirit, Grandfather Raven and such.

    I like the idea that this Semitic-like god can see through any fire, which means considering fire is one of the basis of human civilization he's always watching his worshipers and enemies. Also with the Sun that means he can have a birds-eye view of the world at least during the morning, and maybe less clear at night (The moon acting as God's telescope)

    Yahweh can't be modeled in a pantheonistic world, He's as far beyond any god as they are beyond us.
    That's kinda the point of Genesis stating He created everything, as before then most gods were incarnate in the world eg Gaia is the earth, Ra is the sun. Genesis is essentially Abrahamic scholars saying "that mountain is your god? well my God made that mountain, and all the other mountains too."

    There are some neat faiths, but I think I would agree that if there's one place Eberron falls particularly flat and stereotypical, it's in religion.

    Every god has his children. And Yahweh is no different. But Yahweh's child is the universe, the great wheel itself. Born of his will he set forth the first men to look upon his creation and marvel and to love creation as he did. But these men were factitious and split the great wheel into countless shards, stealing away the glory of creation and making gods of themselves and their own children to worship them. Yahweh, consumed by his grief over the suffering his children had brought to his world, thought to wipe clean this existence that had strayed so far from the path he had set. But Yahweh is a merciful god and could not bring himself to strike down the children he so loved even as they turned against each other and committed atrocities upon their own sons. So he left this realm and from his anguish and his agonies were born the far realms: a nightmare reflection of Yahweh's creations. Few remember his name. Even the gods who he first set upon the universe have forgotten the face of their father. But in some remote corners of the material plane there are those that venerate him still. The father of all. The bringer of light to the darkness. The spark that ignited the world. God of gods and king of kings.

    The whole point of 'revenge as justice' is a symbolical retribution of the goods damaged either by a)paying or b)Talion's law. What the other guy was getting at(I think) was this whole new hippish conception of Justice as "Punish the Crime, pity the offender" or the Catholicism-inclined exegesis of "turn the other cheek", in other words some sort of punitive penalty that is impersonal, detached, cold and 'fair'.

    Probably with Law.

    Not necessarily, but I'm not going to get into that. Positivism is very silly, but there's more than one school of thought on Positive Law.

    It's more that YHWH is portrayed as unknowable, inscrutable, and prone to do terrible things to you for reasons you will never know. He favors absolutely horrific punishments (often body horror) and his servants are... well...

    Inevitable sub domain

    >Associated Domain: Law.

    >Replacement Power: The following granted power replaces the touch of law power of the Law domain. Inevitables are a race of lawful neutral outsiders.

    >Command (Su): As a standard action, you can give a creature an emotionless yet undeniable order, as per the spell command. A Will save negates this effect. You cannot target a creature more than once per day with this ability. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

    Samefag here.

    I'm really liking the idea of a LN Yahweh, God of Laws and Civilization. On a second view, I don't think Glory is such a good domain for him.

    Yahweh is the God of Laws and Community and amongst the oldest Gods in existence. He claims himself to be the God of creation, stating that before there was anything else besides the protean mass of chaos, there was him and his laws. Laws gave in to order which gave in to structure. Without structure, there is no proper existence. This is why he calls himself the creator of all.

    And that's the Holy Spirit, to complement Jesus. There's no way I'm going to tackle the Big Man himself; at least, not today.

    He doesn't necessarily need stats, Asmodeus, Pelor and Bane haven't been statted either.

    Only the dragon deities and Lolth due to them being iconic fightan monsters and Torog due to his permanent physical presence in the world have been statted for 4e.

    It's a force. It's LN, and only Lawful because that's what it's made of.

    I see you've missed the point of this exercise.

    Unaligned, whatever.
    Point is, Good isn't the way to describe something that turns you into a pillar of salt for looking behind you.

    I actually had thought about that. That perhaps Yahweh was originally from the Far Realm, and when the universe was born (possibly spontaneous), he ventured into it and fell in love with the order and sanity of it all. He chose dwarves as his chosen peolple due to their structure and tendency to be lawful.

    Perhaps the Holy Spirit could be some sort of semi sentient well of magic. Like a far realm entity without much of a mind. Yahweh's mentally handicapped little brother who followed him into the universe.

    More Fluff I suppose:

    The afterlife for Yahweh is Heaven, a realm of ruined cities that has been taken over by nature. Flocks of animals roam free, rivers of milk, honey, water and wines. It is a wild land of peace and nature all surrounding a gold and silver city where the three gods and the angelic host resides.

    There is also Hell, formerly Sheol. Sheol was once the place for all the dead who worshiped Yahweh and the Holy Spirit, before the birth of Yeshua. After Lucifer and Iblis rebelled, the fallen angels and jinn were cast into Sheol to be forever tormented, and the souls of the good were brought up to be in heaven.

    Also I'm thinking that since the Djinn were considered to be behind acts of people using magic, that perhaps they were created by the Holy Spirit, as the angels were created by Yahweh.
