## Divine Trappings: Z-A Index

Another A-Z Blog Challenge… and another successful completion. Not all my A-Z Blog Challenge attempts are successfully completed, but this one was, and it was my easiest yet. There were a few things that made this one easier than the previous attempts. First, this is a topic that interests me …

## Divine Trappings: Yelling at Clouds

Opinions differ on whether I’m actually an old man or not, but I’ll still use this title for a draft of the Air domain. Air … I think I blundered a little with this post. I haven’t drafted a domain in a post for a couple of weeks and didn’t …

## Divine Trappings: Yeah, Figured It Out

(Original working title was “Yeah, That’s Going to be Hard”… but describing the problem, articulating it, basically gave me a solution. Rubber duck debugging wins again!) So, the other day I had an idea for adapting Polyhedral Pantheons to a planar array. It seems simple enough… The last two points …

## Divine Trappings: Exploring Divine Realms

Day 24, ‘X Day’, is always a challenge because there are so few words in English starting with ‘X’. As usual, I’m hedging a little by using a word starting with ‘EX’. The deity template and the domain template both have entries related to special locations associated with a deity …

## Divine Trappings: What Comes After?

We’re almost at the end of the 2024 A-Z Blog Challenge, and it seems that for the first time I’ve managed to stay entirely on topic. I don’t think that’s happened before… it feels weird. Anyway, with all I’ve written so far this month, what else is there to do? …

## Divine Trappings: Variations on a Theme

When I published Polyhedral Pantheons in 2015 (… coming up on ten years ago, ow), it was based all on polyhedrons. First was the icosahedron (d20), prompted by the Rose of the Prophet series by Weis and Hickman, but extending the process to more polyhedra, and then making other adjustments …

## Divine Trappings: Unlikely Pages, Unexpected Workbook

Long ago, GreyKnight wrote The Post To End It, a bit of fun about what goes into my writing a blog post here. He almost absolutely nails it. ‘Paragraphs appearing’ being 5d20 is a bit of an exaggeration, maybe, but the rest of it is spot on. The last table …

## Divine Trappings: Terrain and Landmark Tables

A (probably) short one today. I’ve done some tables used for the Artifacts field, I’m likely to do something about entity names, but another group comes to me. Places. I feel like I want a way to randomly generator geography. I didn’t foresee the need for ‘place names’, but I’m …

## Divine Trappings: Servitors, By Domain

This is going to be more of a ‘strategic’ post, in that I’m going to describe how I expect to solve the problem, rather than actually show my solution. The simple reason for it: it’s going to be quite a bit of work, because there is little support for the …

## Divine Trappings: Revision and Refinement

Yet again, “what I planned to write” and “what I wrote” don’t quite match. They’re related, of course. But they’re not the same. I’d expected to write about domain-specific word choices (i.e. more random tables). I started to work up some examples, and realized they might take up a fair …
