Deity Dating & God Gossip

Written by Expy - Published on July 28, 2007

Here’s a fun resource for all dungeon masters that are in need of some inspiration when they’re creating a new world, campaign, cult, or whatever.

The God Checker soap opera

God Checker
is a fun, somewhat educative site that archives gods of all mythologies. They actually claim that they have more gods than you can shake a stick at – which is a lot. The twist is that the website refers to gods and deities like they were celebrities or characters in a soap opera. Well, you have to give it to the Greek gods – they had a lot of drama going on.

Here’s an example of what makes God Checker awesome. Their view of the greek mythology:

Greek Mythology is a veritable blockbusting soap opera. What can ZEUS possibly get up to next – and with whom? How will HERA take her next revenge? Where will APHRODITE discard her nightie? Who has been barred from Olympus lately – and why? When is the next big punch-up? And will HERMES be sued for selling counterfeit sheep?

Have fun and let me know if you have any comments and suggestions on the blog. (e-mail me or leave comments below)

Meet Expy The Red Dragon

Expy is the mascot for DungeonMastering.com and the real mastermind behind Expy Games. He likes to hoard treasure, terrorize neighbors, burn down villages, and tell white dragon jokes..

No matter how fearful the legends claim dragons are, they always end up being defeated in 5 rounds by adventuring parties they encounter. That’s what dragons are – experience points for the heroes in your Dungeons & Dragon party. And this mascot is no different, hence the name Expy.

    The one thing that many people overlook (or simply ignore) is that many of the gods were bisexual. Wonder why that didn’t carry over to the D&D pantheons….
