If a deity’s portfolio represents their wordly spheres of influence, both that which they have control over and that which grants them power, and domains represent the manifestations of the deity’s influence and power, the concept is the… concept around which the deity is based. Diana is divinity. Loki is ego, or perhaps pride. Ankou is duty. Yet none of those concepts are found within the worldy portfolio of those deities. Continue reading
Domains in Pathfinder represent a deity’s worldly manifestation of their otherworldly portfolio. As a result, few pantheons written for the game feature dichotomous deities, or deities that exhibit opposing characteristics. The real world has Shiva, the dual-aspect god of destruction and benevolence, or Dionysus, the god of wine, frivolous or furious, depending on… things.

“As you well know, monster raids have only increased. These savages are not only more powerful, but more organized than ever before. I suspect a guiding hand behind them. Find the puppet master. Cut the strings.” -Corwyn Linton Continue reading
I’m more or less done updating the site to the easier-to-manage wordpress style blog. Which means there’s a ton of old content that is “cut” from Dorkistan. If you’re looking for things like alternate classes or updated 3.5 classes for Pathfinder, check out the archive. Basically, stuff that has since been rendered obsolete by later developments in whatever game they’re for — which incidentally is all Pathfinder material. (Great minds think alike?)
