The later splat books added at least 24 more Greyhawk gods, some of which are already in this new book, so 5th Edition is clearly already off to a grand start. This is the lineup: Beory, goddess of nature, symbol green disk.
Easy enough! Boccob, god of magic. Eye within a pentagram. Mentioned among a list of other Knowledge Domain gods like Thoth. Yes, you need him. Celestian , god of stars and wanderers. Symbol is an arc of seven stars inside a circle This obscure symbol is right. Ehlonna, goddess of the woodlands. Unicorn horn. A good holdover from 3E. Erythnul, god of envy and slaughter. Blood drop symbol Naturally.
He gets props in the War Domain section for clerics. Fharlanghn, god of horizons and travel. Circle crossed by horizon line. Nice to see he stayed on. Heironeous, god of chivalry and valor. Lightning bolt symbol. No brainer here, from the War Domain listing as well. Hextor, god of war and discord. Six arrows downward in a fan. Kord , god of athletics and sport. Four spears and four maces radiating from a center point. Incabulos, god of plague and famine.
Reptilian eye with a horizontal diamond. Istus, goddess of fate and destiny. Her spindle symbol is on target. She too is brought up to the main list again, as should be. Iuz, god of pain and oppression. He of the grinning human skull symbol was in Complete Divine like so many non-core deities, but when making a short list of Greyhawk gods he has to be on it.
Nerull, god of death. Obad-hai, god of nature. He of the oak leaf and acorn carries on the Nature domain tradition in the cleric section.
Olidammara, god of revelry not rogues? That implies rogue I guess! Rao, god of peace and reason is another good knowledge god. His white heart symbol is correct, though some show a heart shaped face.
Rao like others previously only made it into Complete Divine. Cuthbert, god of common sense and zeal. A move I can only guess is to round out the alignments on the list.
Tharizdun, god of eternal darkness has both his familiar dark spiral and inverted ziggurat symbol. Trithereon, god of liberty and retribution is back in the big leagues.
His Triskelion symbol is correct. Ulaa, goddess of hills and mountains makes for a good choice for this list as she is LG and a female deity one of five. She had never been in a 3E core book previously.
Vecna, god of evil secrets of course has to be here. His Hand and Eye symbol is unmistakable. He is one of seven knowledge gods in this list.
Greyhawk has a lot of lore. Wee Jas, goddess of magic and death finishes off the list. Posted by.
However, when Gygax started to build his own campaign world called Greyhawk, one facet of culture that he did not address was organized religion. Gygax, with tongue in cheek, created two gods: Saint Cuthbert —who brought non-believers around to his point of view with whacks of his cudgel  —and Pholtus , whose fanatical followers refused to believe that any other gods existed. Because both of these deities represented aspects of Good, Gygax eventually created a few evil deities to provide some villainy. Cuthbert spelled "St. Cuthburt" is mentioned; this was the first published reference to a Greyhawk deity. However, Gygax did not include any details of the deities he used in his home campaign at this time. Several adventure modules were quickly published to support the folio edition, and one of them, C1 The Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan , featured the first deities designed specifically for a World of Greyhawk setting.
