A realization on the way home from work, combined with discussing it with a friend online, means I’ll be changing a few definitions I’ve used for a while. GreyKnight, I think this one qualifies as a ‘Revisit old post and completely change everything’ result on the Keith Davies Blog Post …

## Z-A Challenge 2015 Index

I didn’t write as many articles this year as last year (28 vs. 32) and my word count is lower (27,000 vs. 38,000). However, I stayed closer to the theme: more than half, almost two thirds I think, of all posts were related to Polyhedral Pantheons. This includes drafting 72 deities …

## Yet More Projects

For the Z-A Challenge 2014 I focused mostly on demonstrating the creation of a sandbox campaign. I didn’t focus very hard and I wandered a fair bit, but managed to write a bit more than 38,000 words. For the Z-A Challenge 2015 I mostly wrote about Polyhedral Pantheons, and finally got my example pantheons …

## Examples of Adapted Polyhedral Pantheons

I’m calling ‘Examples’ close enough for ‘X Day’ of the A-Z Blog Challenge. The last couple of posts have been about ways the Polyhedral Pantheons mechanism can be adapted to other purposes. In this post I’ll start applying the adaptations. Adaptations of Polyhedral Pantheons I’m going to start with just the initial …

Yesterday I wrote about adapting the Polyhedral Pantheons mechanism for other purposes. And now my brain, because it’s like that, insists I make some notes about the attributes that might be used for the various adaptations. Polyhedral Pantheons Adaptations For (almost) every adaptation in yesterday’s post, I’ll present a draft …

## Variations on a Theme: Adapting Polyhedral Pantheons

I’ve been doing a lot of work on Polyhedral Pantheons this month. The processes and mechanisms were devised around creating a pantheon, but they can be adapted to other purposes. Primary elements of the process and its results are: Attributes are placed on sites (points and/or faces) of a polyhedron. Entities are …

## Ultimate Shu-shi Deities Post

As much as I like the Shu-shi pantheon and the implied culture, and as delighted as I am at the results, and as glad I am to have this pantheon drafted, I don’t mean this is the best Shu-shi article ever. Even if there is only one other to compare it …

## Twelve Shu-shi Deities

‘T day’ in the A-Z Blog Challenge. I refused to be cheap and claim a title starting with ‘The’, but I’m not too proud to use ‘Twelve’. Here are twelve of the twenty-two Shu-shi deities. The Jixiang Shen are the auspicious deities, favored by (and believed to favor) the Shu-shi. The …

## Shu-shi Pantheon (Halfling Pantheon Revised)

I started work on a halfling pantheon to include in Polyhedral Pantheons, but it got sidelined while I worked on other things. Now that I’m up to ‘S’ in the April A-Z Blog Challenge I thought I’d look for a name for the halflings, or at least the subpantheons I expect …

## Reviewing the Elemental Tetratheon

The Elemental Tetratheon is a deliberately polarized pantheon focusing primarily on the hermetic elements. While I like how most of the deities in this pantheon turned out, and the individual subpantheons show merit, I decided to take a closer look to see how they fit together as a whole. Final List …
