as time passes I can't help but notice that in the world of fiction when ever the presence of a deity is needed you can count on one hand the number of gods that appear. there are a number of religions that have existed on this earth many of which were polytheistic (many gods) but only a few get any play. so for no one else's sake save my own I decided to compile a list of these "stock gods". not much to say or see here. as you were.
