Cleric Deities from Indian Mythology

Suggested Price $0.50

So, my D&D party asked me if I had ever considered creating some Cleric divine domains based on deities from Indian Mythology and how cool it would be if such a thing existed! This is what came of that little question. 

Sky Domain: Garuda is a great winged bird who constantly travels between the various planes of existence. Born into slavery to the snake-people, he won back his freedom by traveling to the realm of the gods, defeating their best warriors, extinguishing a terrible wall of flame, devouring two powerful snakes, and retrieving the nectar of immortality. But having taken this divine nectar, Garuda was never tempted to taste it. The king of the gods, impressed by the Garuda’s sense of honor and duty, offered his friendship, and once the great bird had won back his freedom from the snake people, stole it back from them.

Garuda promotes the ideals of detachment, freedom, duty, exploration, strength, self development and a generally hermitic life.

Air Domain: Hanuman is a powerful monkey deity born to the wind god Vaayu. He was one of the generals in the army of the warrior-king Rama, where he performed many miraculous deeds during his service, including but not limited to: crossing the entire ocean in a single bound, infiltrating the demon kingdom in disguise, finding Rama's kidnapped wife Sita, destroying numerous demons single-handedly, burning down the demon city of Lanka while tied up and with his tail on fire, and retrieving the entire Dronagiri mountain in his search for the mystical Sanjeevani herb.

Hanuman promotes the ideals of humility, duty, strength, justice, mercy and self development.

Battle Command Domain: Karthikeya was born of six sparks that erupted from the third eye of the God of Destruction Shiva. The sparks were carried through the skies by the Fire God Agni, cooled by the waters of the river Ganges and deposited in six lotuses in the reed forests of Shara, where he was born as six children. These children were raised by the six celestial Pleiades Maidens, and then unified into one form by the Mother Goddess Parvati.

Riding a majestic peacock and wielding his Rooster Banner, he led the armies of the gods into victorious battles against the feared demonic brothers of Surapadman, Simhamukha and Tarakasura.

Karthikeya promotes the ideals of practical knowledge, courage, diplomacy, justice, mercy and rigorous self improvement.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
