Canon talk:List of core deities (3e)

From Dungeons and Dragons Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


This article is based on an older version of Wikipedia:List of Dungeons & Dragons deities and does not include the 4th edition core pantheon, which can be seen at the current version of that Wikipedia page. In the future, I think such a list should be created as a separate article and this article moved to Canon:List of 3rd Edition deities or something like that, and the List of deities disambiguation page, Canon:Deities etc. should be adapted accordingly.

I thought we were doing edition independent navigation and indicating in the deity page how they had changed over the editions. Did you want to split them out into editions in the navigation instead, and if so how did you want to change the deity articles themselves? - Tarkisflux Talk 16:28, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
No, I would wish to keep Canon:Deities and the individual entries just as they are. This list, taken from Wikipedia, gives the "Core pantheon" for 3rd edition, something which did not exist in the previous editions, and as such is, in my opinion, of interest and a complementary article to such lists as Canon:List of Forgotten Realms deities, which could also be created in the future. I guess it will be a long time of before all mentioned deities will have their article and therefore appear in Canon:Deities. For the 4th Edition, there also seems to be such a "Core pantheon".

Thinking about it, the article name "List of deities" is somewhat misleading, as it is not meant to be a list of all D&D deities. Should we move it to Canon:3rd Edition core pantheon? Or Canon:Core pantheon (3e) (though it is at least as much 3.5e,...), or Canon:Default pantheon (3e) (though that name has no flair at all), or...? Daranios 17:55, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
