All deities will be divided into four groups: greater, intermediate, lesser, and demipowers. The basis of this broad distinction is as follows:
Greater Powers: These are distant powers, far removed from most mortal affairs. Some may be held to be creator powers of the multiverse or Tellus- Aboreah. They typically have many spheres of concern, or are absolute masters of just one sphere.
Intermediate Powers: While lacking the great creative force of Greater Powers, they are still very powerful and hold major sway over one or two spheres of concern. In some nations, they may be held as patron powers, even above a Greater Power.
Lesser Powers: A lesser power may serve greater ones as a messenger or aide, may be an outcast or solitary power, or may hold sway over a very narrow sphere of concern. Some Lesser Powers may be declining from exalted status or ascending to a greater force.
Demipowers: These are the least powerful and in many ways similar to the Lesser Powers. Some may be mortals who have undergone divine ascension.
Deities Not Covered
These listed and the following descriptions of the powers doesn’t cover some of the lesser-known humanoid powers. This list also leaves out cults and small religions among the humans and demi-humans that may be encountered while adventuring. This list is also ever changing: deities wane in power, while others increase.
