The Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Deities and Demigods supplement is a resource that provides information about the major pantheons of legend, as well as the pantheon from AD&D?s own universe.

This book examines the origins and stories of the major figures in each of the mythologies, Norse, Greek and Egyptian. Whilst in a specific sense this resource might only be of use to those people interested in building worlds based upon the ancient mythologies of Earth, in a more general sense it provides a reader with ideas that might help to create their own hierarchy of deities.

The richness of legend that accompanies these mythologies is not always fully explored in this resource, nor could one expect centuries of culture and history to be trapped in a single volume, but enough information is provided for a reader to understand the histories and personalities of the Gods, should they wish to use them in their own worlds, or to simply accept them as a template for their own world pantheons.

This book can acts as an extremely useful resource for the potential builder, especially for those interested in having a well-developed and serious arrangement of deities. The only fall down of this book is that is fails to cover the other areas of mythology that earlier editions did include, such as Arthurian legends and Cthulhu mythos.
