Day 6 of the 30-day D&D Challenge asks about my favorite deity. Again, it’s a question I’m afraid I can’t answer from a D&D perspective. The clerics in our games were never strictly tied to any one god, nor did any gods have much of an appearance in our games.
If I had to choose, it would be a toss-up between Cthulhu for sheer eldritch badassitude, and Zeus for sheer story potential. Zeus’ raunchiness, position and relationships in the Olympian family, and jealousy make for a never-ending mill of conflict and possibility, and I like that.
