14: Choose a Deity
Choose a deity. Wizards of High Sorcery are not required to select deities at this point, but will at a higher level when they select alignment.
There is a large number of possible gods in the Deities and Demigods volume (renamed Legends and Lore), and the MyWorld campaign and most others have gods additional to these, either predating the availability of this volume or coming into existence because of the needs of the campaign. Additionally, there are gods of non-human races in the Unearthed Arcana, Krynn gods for the Krynn characters in the Dragonlance Adventures, and indications that demons and devils, modrons and slaadi, and a few other supernatural beings are worshipped as gods by some people. This myriad of deities is beyond the scope of this work. To reduce the volume, information is limited to those most likely to appeal to the player character; those with greater interest may pursue other options.
In the original work, the gods are arranged by pantheon, and that sorting has remained the primary one used here; many referees choose to limit the gods in their game worlds to one or more specific pantheons, or conversely to forbid one or more pantheons from inclusion in their game world. However, this is not always a useful ordering of deities for the difficult purpose of quickly choosing one for a character to follow, especially in worlds in which many pantheons are common. Thus it's been decided to organize them in several other ways. Gods are listed by alignment, including the alignments of general worshippers they accept; and by the classes normally associated with them, and any interests normally connected to them.

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
