What do you eat? Who do you pray to? How do you dispose of your dead? They appear to be staples of the way I world-build.
List of biblical names starting with H
But that second one—who do you pray to? I put in a lot of work hammering out the pantheon of deities for each of my imaginary countries, but very little of it shows up in the finished product.
A god of luck makes a minor intervention in Frostborn. A god is said to be responsible for a supernatural incident that is related to but not witnessed by the leads in Nightborn. In book three—well, no spoilers, but book three has a strong Grecian influence, and so divine beings may be a little more active than in the previous books.
Book characters starting with god
Here are five books that have made a particularly strong impact on me and the way I think of the divine in fantasy fiction. One of my first fantasy loves was Michael Moorcock. I encountered his Eternal Champion series early on and never got over it.
Keeping God In Their Heart: Christian/Character Building Books For Kids
If memory serves, the god appears first as a fly, then as a beautiful male youth who drips power and seduction. The Elric series was the first time I encountered gods who actively participated in their stories, the way the gods and goddesses of Greek mythology did.
It All Starts with God’s Character
The minor god Balo, Jester to the Court of Chaos, is up to no good, and after battling the god ineffectually, a desperate Elric summons Arioch to deal with him.
He has transgressed and will be punished. I realized then that gods were not made of the same mortal clay as we humans and did not have to abide by our rules. And speaking of rules…. Ward and Robert J.
I was already a huge fan of Leiber and Moorcock, and this sent me off to read Lovecraft as well. Better still, it encouraged ideas for how gods could be included in game scenarios of my own creation and by extension my fictions.

Later editions had to strip out the Leiber, Lovecraft, and Moorcock, as other gaming companies held those licenses, but I still have my original manual! Enge take the staples of the fantasy tradition and subverts them delightfully, without ever thumbing his nose at the tropes or being embarrassed to be unabashedly genre.
And some of these aspects would rather cast off the yoke and be the one driving the bus, so they scheme to accrue followers and seize the big chair. But in book three in the series, The Grave Thief, things get really interesting! Spoiler alert: The goddess of luck makes an unprecedented decision to choose a human as one of her aspects and then gets herself killed, leaving a human woman as the aspect of a dead god! Blackdog by K. Every mountain, lake, and river has its own deity in K.
Some are quite powerful and distant, some are mad, and others are like kindly village elders, keeping alive the oral history of the tribe and officiating at weddings. The lake goddess Attalissa is unique.
Lesson 3: A New Beginning with God (Ezra 3:1-13)
She chooses to incarnate, being born as a baby and living a full life, then repeating the cycle again. When she is young, she is vulnerable, and so, long ago, she bound a dark spirit called the Blackdog to the life of a man. The Blackdog is her guardian and protector, and passes from man to man as each host dies. It is better when a host is willing, but not necessary.
When unforeseen events force a very young incarnation to flee her temple, a rogue named Holla-Sayan becomes the newest host of the Blackdog. Holla-Sayan takes Attalissa back with him to the caravan roads, where he introduces her as… his illegitimate daughter! He likes reading and writing adventure stories and designing the board games that appear in the books which you can play too! You can learn more about him at louanders.
