Erastil, god of families, and Pharasma, goddess of birth and midwives, being childless and unmarried is one of the funky bits of the setting I'm not in love with. I prefer pantheons with more relationships, like the Greek, Norse, Egyptian, etc. pantheons (or some of the Greyhawk pantheons).
Even the gods who are related have gaps, like Shelyn and Dou-Bral/Zon-Kuthon, who have a father, but whose mother remains a mystery.
Still, that sort of stuff just creates a niche for a GM to introduce their own flavorful bits, like making Pharasma into an 'All-Mother' to Asmodeus, Abadar, Erastil, etc. or having Sivanah being the (intentionally) forgotten mother of Shelyn and Dou-Bral, in hiding from her son, so that she doesn't end up like their father, or Erastil's former life and hunting companion having been Cernunnos (and having been less lawful and more freedom-loving before Lamashtu devoured his friend).
I think you meant Curchanus.Like the above regardless!
