I am running an Eberron Campaign in the 3.5 ruleset. However, I am trying to bring in aspects of the Cthulhu mythos. I want to give my players a doctored copy of the Necronomicon, altered to be Eberron-specific. Here are some of the alterations:
- Instead of being written by the Mad Arab, it is written by the Mad Sahuagin.
- All of the locations are changing from land-based to sea-based locales.
- Instead of seven Zonei, I was thinking of using the twelve dragon deities, each attuned to a different moon and a different plane. Some of them are easy to figure. Others, less so.
It is part (3) that is giving me troubles. Here is what I have so far:
Plane: Daanvi, The Perfect Order
Moon: Rhaan, the Book (Small Pale Blue)
Deity: Lendys (dragon god of justice)? Hlal (symbol is an open book)?
Plane: Dal Quor, The Region of Dreams
Moon: Crya, the destroyed moon
Deity: Sardior (gem dragon god)?
Plane: Dolurrh, The Realm of the Dead
Moon: Vult, the Warding Moon (Large Grey and full of craters)
Deity: Chronepsis (god of afterlife)? Tamara (god of healing, life, and death)?
Plane: Fernia, The Sea of Fire
Moon: Aryth, the Gateway (Medium Orange-Red)
Deity: Garyx (god of fire)?
Plane: Irian, The Eternal Day
Moon: Nymm, the King (Small Pale Yellow)
Plane: Kythri, The Churning Chaos
Moon: Lharvion, the Eye (Large White with Black Crevasse)
Deity: Chronepsis because his symbol is an eye, or Tiamat?
Plane: Lamannia, The Twilight Forest
Moon: Barrakas, the Lantern (Small Pale Grey)
Deity: Aasterinian or Astilabor?
Plane: Mabar, The Endless Night
Moon: Sypheros, the Shadow (Large Smoky Grey)
Plane: Risia, The Plain of Ice
Moon: Dravago, the Herder’s Moon (Medium Pale Lavender)
Plane: Shavarath, The Battleground
Moon: Olarune, the Sentinel (Medium Pale Orange)
Deity: Tiamat? Lendys?
Plane: Syrania, The Azure Sky
Moon: Zarantyr, the Storm Moon (Large Pearly White)
Deity: Bahamut? Aasterinian?
Plane: Thelanis, The Faerie Court
Moon: Therendor, the Healer’s Moon (Medium Pale Gray)
Deity: Hlal (storytelling) or Tamara (Healing)?
Plane: Xoriat, The Realm of Madness
Moon: Eyre, the Anvil (Small Silver-Gray)
Deity: Cthulhu (god of madness)? Io (god of creation)? Garyx (the insane dragon god)?
Questions: Is this a good idea? Do the dragon deities make for good astral deities? Should they be associated with the moons? Or should they instead be associated with constellations? And if they are associated with constellations, should they be associated with planes?
Any suggestions for the matches I came up with?
