First Edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons™ Character Creation
...another useful RPG site from M. J. Young Net
AD&D Deities Sorted By Alignment
  There is no easy way in the rule books to track down gods whose alignment is alike to your character's.  Alignment of the god and alignment of his worshippers do not always match absolutely, and both are listed as if a minor item in the descriptions of the deities--and in the otherwise useful summary of information at the end of the primary volume, neither is included.  Yet a character can't effectively be a worshipper of a god with whom he disagrees--especially if he's a cleric (although a shukenja might serve a deity of different moral alignment--see Shukenja and Non-good Deities on M. J. Young's Dungeons & Dragons Materials).  So this page has been organized to collect the gods by their alignment, and connect them to their descriptions in their pantheons.  Find the appropriate alignment, click on any god that interests you, and use the back button to return to this page if you wish to examine more.


  The gods are listed first by their own alignments, and then again by the alignments of worshippers they accept.  Some referees will require that a cleric's alignment be identical to that of his deity; but many gods are indicated as accepting "all goods" or similar general categories, and quite a few have worshippers of all alignments, although some of these are restricted in other ways, such as their particular interests.  There is another index of the gods which divides them into general interests along with classes for which they are known patrons.  They are also sorted by pantheon directly.

The site which inspired this site....

M. J. Young's Dungeons & Dragons Materials
Collection of such pages as the much-praised Alignment Quiz, What is an RPG? (excerpted from Multiverser), the highly valued Confessions of a Dungeons & Dragons™ Addict, along with special rules and player aids in both written and computer formats, this site was highly praised by RAWS, linked by Gary Gygax, and is worth a look even if you don't like what you found here.

The best new role playing game....

The Multiverser Information Center
The complexity of creating a D&D character always reminds me of how much simpler it is to play
Multiverser®, the game which incorporates all other games, all other worlds, everything imaginable, with nothing else to buy.

A consideration of time travel....

Temporal Anomalies in Popular Movies
There are enough time travel films out there now that most of the things which could go wrong in time have been shown on the silver screen.  This page applies a new conception of how time works (discussed in the
Multiverser® game system to help referees sort out game scenarios in which player characters travel in time) to unraveling the most popular of such movies.  An Event Horizon Hot Spot and Sci Fi Weekly Site of the Week which has won the author national recognition as an authority on time travel in fiction.

Other writings by the author....

Index to the Pages of M. J. Young
An eclectic collection of materials which includes RPG stories, commentary on law and Bible, song lyrics, and indices to material all over the web.
