So basically I'm working on an alternate 'Earth' world where 'humans' are wiped out because of a mass release of Transmutation magic. (Not sure on 'exact' cause yet, but maybe a meteor or biological/technology reactivation of Earth's magic. And the return of magic obliterated most technological stuff.) The new races of Earth are transformed from humans to be: Dwarfs, Elves, Orcs, Halfling, Gnome, and the beast races like Kitsune, Catfolk, Ratfolk, Gnoll, Kobold, Tengu etc.
Now the only surviving religions have formed from pieces of pop culture, famous names and hearsay from books, movie box art, etc.
Prime of Optimus
Domains: Artifice, Good, Law, Protection
F. Weapon: Battleaxe
Short description: Also known as the red knight, whose armor looks like the front of the ancient wheeled transports, one hand grips a strange black staff, while his other hand is replaced completely by a glowing orange (obviously magical) axe.
CN- Conan (? Not sure really while Prime is the 'paladin god' need something for barbarians to relate to.)
Domains: Void, Darkness, Madness
Favored Weapon: Natural Attack
Strange god clad in all black, very lanky, kills so well his victims don't even get to scream in his home. Apparently found of eggs and parasites that burst out of a victims chest.
King El Vis
Domains: Charm, Travel, Nobility
Favored Weapon: Quarterstaff made of metal
Patron of Bards and odd Monks, priests wear flashy clothes, and temples often put their idols outside after services to show the king has left the building.
Domains: Scalykind, Liberation, Trickery
Favored Weapon: Musket (or other firearm?)
Followers often hear people think their god is dead, tend to also distrust government figures.
Domains: Death, Knowledge, Luck, Repose
Favored Weapon: Scythe
Surprisingly friendly god of death, followed by his two heralds that appear as young and very annoying children.
NG- (I have no idea, on true 'benevolent' deity. To fulfill a Sarenrae like role)
Domains: Healing, Knowledge, Travel
Favored Weapon: Sword Cane
Followers are often lame oracles, or healers with bad bedside demeanors but often granted keen insight on diseases and other medical anomalies.
Domains: Magic, Entropy, Rune
Favored Weapon: Khopesh
(I'm actually open to changing this one too, as he isn't as well known, maybe give this to Lovecraft?)
Dwarfs and Elves I have no idea. Dwarfs are probably going to have a lot of Scandiniavian influence with Elves being found mostly in France and Canadian areas, (Drow/Duergar taking up the Nazi stuff, and still being underground)
Not to fleshed out but for laughes Gnomes get:
Domains: Community, Animal, Protection
Favored Weapon: ???
Gnomes are tricksters but known to get help when kids fall in wells or other calamities.
Halflings not sure either, maybe Frodo/Sam?
Orcs I have no idea either, they are very British, so maybe the good ones follow The Tenet of David? or something. Evil? No idea.
Catfolks: Probably LG Simba and CN Cheshire
N - Nat Geo
Domains: Animal, Plant, Earth, Water
Favored Weapon: ??? Something that looks like a book?
Any input and advice is highly interesting to me. Racial deities and other alignment and class favored deities kinda needed, as well as evil ones.
