Mostly busy but now that I have my own world, please note that there is one additional goddess not found in the Pathfinder pantheon. The below is quoted (with some redactions) from a conversation I had a long time ago. For now, this is mainly worldbuilding, but you may run into an NPC that worships this goddess at some point.
all right so basically all these fantasy games doing Winter dirty
"ah yes the ice goddess, famously uncaring, cold in personality as well as domain"
"he is harsh, and teaches that the weak perish"
you tend to get Evil or Neutral at best, there
SO ANYWAY HERE'S MY WINTER GODDESS, YET UNNAMED
Among the Southern Countries, She is known as a visitor, paid homage mostly by immigrants from the North and those desperately seeking refuge from the hottest days of summer.
It is the North where Her influence is most known. As the Goddess of Winter, She sees over the storm,
the blizzard and the blanket of snow, yes; however, more importantly, She teaches a valuable lesson:
Share with your community.
Get your [redacted] together in advance.
Winter comes every year without fail in the Northern Lands; it is what one does in the months before that determines how well-supplied you are, and your actions toward those unable to provide for themselves that determines their survival.
For each person that dies out in the cold when there was a warm fire they were shunned from, it is said that the Goddess harshens the cold for those who could have helped and did not. The fallen are welcomed into her domain, where the air is always brisk and invigorating.
It is in this way that the Goddess delivers her lessons, her tests, and her judgments.
Domains: Cold, Community, Preparation, Endurance
(Those don't all tie specifically to domains from any system I'm aware of, but it's her general Business; specifics will be thrown together At Some Point)
Areas that are Too [Redacted] Cold to Survive In are considered to be Her Blessed Domain, and are not fit for habitation; instead, they are places for Her strongest to worship, and bring back lessons to Her communities. It is said that this is where She manifests.
Her Clerics, Paladins, etc. are most often seen bringing aid to those who have nothing else before anyone else. They are said to be able to create clear, liquid water even when everything else has frozen over, and often bring smoked meat to share.
