How many deities are needed to make a varied enough pantheon? Originally I was thinking of having around 40-50, but realized this would be too much from a design standpoint. I narrowed down the field to around 28-30. More workable, but still a lot. I have since narrowed down to the few major concepts that are worked out the best. They have also absorbed those with similar ideas, so no one deity would only have one area of influence.
While I have enough to work on, I would still like to hear input on people’s views on what makes a good pantheon.
