Thoughts on Fleshing out the Plane of Entropyby Håvard
Hey, I've been looking at various evil deities lately and have been comparing them to what is found in various non-Mystara D&D stuff. One of the books I've been looking at is the Fiendish Codex I: Hordes of the Abyss.
Immortal Equivalents of 4E deities?
Shared Greyhawk/Mystara Elements
I figured we can use the Abyss as inspiration for fleshing out the Plane of Entropy aka Pyts. Which Mystaran immortals are the equivalents to those from the Fiendish Codex? This is what I have so far...
Baphomet, Prince of Beasts
The Codex Immortalis has an obscure Immortal called Kiranjo as a lord of Minotaurs, but I can't find a full description of him, so I'm not sure where Marco got that one from?
Dagon Prince of Depths
Saasskas the Destroyer, the patron of the Devilfish seems like a good candidate.
Well, Demogorgon is easy, since we already have Demogorgon.
Fraz-Urb'luu Prince of Deception.
Could Bozdogan aka Loki be a good replacement?
Graz'zt The Dark Prince
One of the things that I find interesting about Graz'zt is the three way rivalry between him, Orcus and Demogorgon. In Mystara, this rivalry seems to be between Alphaks, Demogorgon and Orcus.
Jubliex, the Faceless Lord
I've always seen Jammudaru/Vaprak as a good equivalent for Jubliex
Kostchtchie, Prince of Wrath
Not sure. How about Yagrai (He-who-always-rises)? Or possibly Bagni Gullymaw?
Malanchet, Queen of the Succubi
Obox-Ob, Prince of Vermin
Mrikitat, the Patron of Were-rats could work here, though technically he is not an Entropic Immortal, belonging to the Sphere of Time.
Orcus, Prince of the Undead
Orcus we already have.
Pale Night, Mother of Demons
Pazuzu, Prince of the Lower Aerial Kingdoms
I have no particularly good candidate for this one?
Yeenoghu, Prince of Gnolls
Ranivorous is already known by the name Yeenoghu.
Zuggtmoy, Lady of Fungi
I have no particularly good candidate for this one.
Fiendish Codex II: Tyrants of the Nine Hells
Mammon - Patron of Greed
Belial & Fierna - Patrons of Lust
Levistus - Patron of Hate
Glasya - Hag Countess
Baalzebul - Lord of Lies
Bozdogan/Loki (Can he be both a Demon and a Devil?)
Mephistopheles - Patron of Ambition
by Andrew Theisen
So, to recap my thoughts (including those of Havard's that I agree with):
Baphomet, Prince of Beasts: Kiranjo or Minoides (or both, if same entity)
Dagon Prince of Depths: Saasskas, or other?
Fraz-Urb'luu Prince of Deception: Masauwu
Graz'zt The Dark Prince: Atzanteotl
Juiblex, the Faceless Lord: Jammudaru
Kostchtchie, Prince of Wrath: Bartziluth (not Entropic, but seems good fit?)
Malcanthet, Queen of the Succubi: Talitha
Obox-Ob, Prince of Vermin: ???
Orcus, Prince of the Undead: Orcus
Pale Night, Mother of Demons: Hel
Pazuzu, Prince of the Lower Aerial Kingdoms: ???
Yeenoghu, Prince of Gnolls: Ranivorus
Zuggtmoy, Lady of Fungi: ???
Belial & Fierna- Patrons of Lust: ???
Levistus - Patron of Hate: Arik
Glasya - Hag Countess: ???
Baalzebul - Lord of Lies: Loki
Mephistopheles - Patron of Ambition: Zugzul
