Lawful Neutral.

Lawful, because of their duty of keeping anyone from using it.

Neutral, because they do not care about for what purpose this object would be used for.

"The single thing I find most infuriating about the Golarion setting, and, honestly, my only real complaint, is the inconsistency of their goddesses and gods. I understand that the gods have some sort of pact mumbo-jumbo keeping them from interfering with mortals . . . except not really, because they still interfere with mortals. They still send prophetic dreams and perform miracles and save adventurers who are in dire straits, but only once a campaign. So . . . are they allowed to interfere, or not?"

Yes they are allowed but so are other gods and deities. Incident with Rovagug is one major example and incident of Desna killing a Demonlord is one minor example on why direct interference is bad idea. Gods risk messing up the material plane or death.

"No benevolent god could allow such things as lycanthropy or malaria or Rovagug cults to exist and hurt people. Any god that sits on their ass and watches mortals suffer and die without lifting a finger to help is clearly not a benevolent deity."

That is why they send their mortal followers and sometimes their heralds to deal with the problems. Direct interference is just going to piss of other deities.

Unless your evil character is actually working to redeem himself he cannot be considered a worshiper of good deity, because being worshiper of a deity is to work for and toward deities interests.

There is no "lip-service" for worshipers.

Hi All,

This question was posed to me the other day, and while my default assumption is 'no, probably not', there are a lot of good deities and there could be one that's particularly pragmatic about it, even if they would never condone it.

Any thoughts?

All of them tolerate, since Necromancy is not evil, only some spells are evil.

Good deities oppose spells with [evil] description.

"The character tortures, kills, and eats peasants/slaves, preferably children, anything that she can legally get away with."

Cheliax laws are not really known, but since society is lawful, I believe that anything that disrupts public order (going around killing, eating and torturing people) and "property laws" (harming slaves that you do not own) are going to land huge problems for you.

I was thinking, since alcohol is technically a drug do Cailean's followers do other drugs? I would think most don't but there are a few sects (widely considered heretical) who do use drugs.

Some followers might object, but Cailean is god of freedom.

I do not think he minds, if it does not become addiction and hinder persons ability to do good.

Is there any utility of having a Patron deity? I mean, for Clerics and Paladins it's a requisite, but for other players?

Other then role-playing benefit, majority of the deities have obediences.

By having fitting obedience feat and performing what is required once per day give spells and abilities, depending on your level.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Having goblins in core makes sense since they are numerous and known race, but it does not feel right.

I think core races should be "heroic" races.

Is there an Ooze deity which is not a Great Old One or other Elder Mythos member?

Like whats a Neutral Good Oozemorph to do?

There is Demon lord Jubilex, but it would not make sense for good character to worship him.
