The loathing grew out of the educational trip that it was for me.

As we've said time and time again, the 'rules' were never meant to be more than guidelines; not even true 'rules. They make no claims that any of this material presented is exhaustive, or even infallible. Mythology is defined as 'a body of myths, especially: the myths dealing with the gods, demi-gods and heroes of a particular people, usually involving the supernatural.
Obviously, when dealing with material of this sort, there is a lot of latitude in interpretation. This is what the authors have presented: their interpretations.
These interpretations are the result of months of painstaking, arduous research. As earlier defined, mythology is legend, and hundreds of volumes have been printed, each with its own interpretation.
Further research and reading is recommended into all of the mythos presented herein. This volume is something else, also: our last attempt to reach the "Monty Hall" DM's.
Perhaps now some of the 'giveaway' campaigns will look as foolish as they truly are. When Odin, the All-Father has only? There will always be new material; 'tis the nature of the beastie. There were many myths that couldn't be squeezed into this.

Just don't wait with baited breath for another supplement after this one.

About the Book. When it was reprinted years later as part of the Original Edition Premium Reprint it was cut down to just 56 pages. The difference? The updated edition omitted sections on "Robert E. These sections were doubtless removed for licensing reasons. Exploring the Great Wheel. Rather surprisingly, there is nothing about the Outer Planes or the Great Wheel in this first tome of gods. Some references to places like Asgard reflect the mythological basis of these deities, but there was no attempt to form them into any sort of coherent multiverse.
Monsters of Note. Numerous cultural monsters appear in this book, including the phoenix, fire snakes, Norse giants, the queen of the earth elementals, and more.
Very few of them have ever recurred. Future History. Steve Marsh submitted a "'Greyhawk' style set of materials" including "monsters, character classes, [and] treasures".

Recently ordered my copy via print on demand. Just to reiterate what Casey C has said below. This is NOT the same dimensions as the original digest sized books as the original 0e books. So this one will not store on your shelf or in a box with the others. I assumed they were the same as the other print on demand books in this series.

Moradin inspired dwarven inventions and constantly sought to improve their race, encouraging a good natured, intelligent, and harmonious existence with other good races while battling their pride and isolationist tendencies.

They led the push to found new dwarven kingdoms and increase their status among surface communities. Many of these communities celebrated Hammer 1st, believing that day in DR to be a blessing by the Dwarffather.
