DnD Gods & Deities 5e

The World of Dungeons & Dragons is filled with fantastical creatures, but none are quite as powerful as the deities, gods, and creatures on this list. Here, we’re looking at the worshipped and reviled Dungeons & Dragons deities and DnD Gods. We will cover the complete list of DnD Gods and Deities in 5e.

Other Deities & Gods

There are many powerful creatures in the DnD worlds and not all of them are technically deities or gods. To the average NPC farmer, however, there’s not a lot of difference.

Eberron Deities & Gods

Eberron is an interesting setting in the DnD world. It’s a little darker and grittier than the high fantasy typical in the other settings, and it was designed for a contest by Kieth Baker for Wizards of the Coast. Unlike the other D&D settings, the gods do not manifest in the world. You won’t fall into an ancient tunnel and meet the god of dwarves. They manifest only in the powers they bestow upon their followers.

There are 2 major groups of deities in the Eberron setting. The Sovereign Host, which are considered the good and benevolent deities, and the Dark Six, the evil deities of the setting. There is also a 3rd group of deities that are unaligned with either the Sovereign Host or the Dark Six.

  • Arawai – Life and Love
  • Aureon – Law and Lore
  • Balinor – Horn and Hunt
  • Boldrei – Hearth and Home
  • Dol Arrah – Sun and Sacrifice
  • Dol Dorn – Strength and Steal
  • Kol Korran – World and Wealth
  • Ollandra – Feast and Fortune
  • Onatar – Fire and Forge

The Dark Six Deities
