Story of my life.
Just for you, homie
I find Thor and Odin interesting, mainly because their depictions really tend to vary. They're anywhere from amazing to idiot jerks.
@Hygro: Like Mustaine would say, "even in our worst days we still kick the **** out of other people's best days"
@El Machinae: Loki, on the other hand, is afaik the only god who managed to get raped by a horse.
Helm from the Forgotten Realms. God of guardians and protectors
"A very old deity, Helm was the eternal sentry and was always seen wearing a full suit of armor that represented the weight of his heavy responsibility. Yet Helm always got the job at hand done without complaint. The people of the Realms widely admired these qualities in what they saw as a humble and reassuring god."
It's been picked up, so...
Well, if fictional gods count then I would have to say the most interesting for me would be the chaos god Tzeentch. The way he manipulates others, including his fellow chaos gods, for his Great Game, and the fact that he might actually be a protector of the universe rather that its destroyer make him a fascinating deity.
Nah dude, we're only discussing real gods here.
I'm trying to think of a good example that hasn't already been mentioned, and .. I got nothing.. except maybe the God from Rendezvous with Rama? Or rather the god from the sequels.
What? "Real" gods?
Who says you can only mention "real" gods?
The most interesting gods are the Gods of Small Things, imo. Or do I mean the Small Gods? I think I do.
Fictional gods do count (i mentioned as much in the OP). Also supposedly unreal, real gods count. Also "real" gods, and all other variations
I was just making fun of the real vs fictional gods distinction.
I guess Slaanesh is interesting. For all the wrong reasons.
Actually, thinking about it more, I also like Horus and Isis. Ra is kinda cool too.
But Thoth is still my favorite Egyptian god.
Ganesh is quite interesting. Having a prehensile nose would be useful.
I've only seen fictional depictions of Thoth. Consistently a 'reasonable guy, likeable'.
Ganesha looks cool. Kali is scary though...
Isn't it Krishna?
This is Kali:
To whom the Thuggee (whence "thugs") were devoted.
Kali is my kind of bird, I can tell you. Ho ho! Lovely girl, she is.
^Yes, i know Kali, an image of her scared the hell out of me in early elementary school
Way too many swords, and arms.
And decapitated to use the heads so as to have a necklace.
Oh right! I thought you meant the figure behind Ganesh in the image I posted. I take it you didn't.
Anyway... Hinduism's got quite a number of deities. Some say 300 million of them.
That's surely enough to keep a person busy for a bit.
I'm disappointed, guys. #420PraiseIt
