From D&D Wiki
Thanks for the Picture
Whoever (126.96.36.199) added the picture, Thanks! --Colona 11:05, 22 April 2008 (PST)
Since Adonai means "my lord", a better name would probably Hashem, which means "the name", as long as we want to stay away from heresy and such. Ghostwheel 04:48, 7 July 2009 (MDT)
- Actually, any of His names may be used without being called heresy. I'm a Christian, so belive me, I would know. Technically, his name is Yhwh, without vowels, which, if sounded out, phonetically refers to his power as being the Breath of Life. But any known name of Him will do. He honestly doesn't mind. And since he rules all known universes, and knows all, why would he? Usually, though, he is addressed as Adonai, or Kyrie, or Lord, or even Father, which is properly deferential. -- Danzig 07:02, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
The Variant Tag
This article lacked an identifier originally (the 3.5e deity thing), so I was moving this page to add that. Problem is, another page, as you already know, already exists by that name, and two articles cannot share the exact same name (one adonai has extra text in it's name, which is why it doesn't have any problems existing with the other, as the article name is not an exact match) Since the other adonai was made before this one, I had to change this article's name instead of the other one, and the only modification I could make that wouldn't actually change or add to the actual name was "variant".
You may change the variant to anything you want, however. You can also change the deities name, if you wish, and then you won't need the "variant" anymore. The only requirement is your deity must have the (3.5e deity) identifier, and it's whole article name cannot be an exact match to any existing article. --TheWarforgedArtificer 21:35, 13 September 2009 (MDT)
EDIT: This ended up happening while I was writing the above message. The name was changed from "adonai" to "adonia" by either you or Hooper, so now there is no conflict and no need for the "variant" tag. --TheWarforgedArtificer 21:38, 13 September 2009 (MDT)
- And no, (JdC deity) is not a valid tag, -and- you cannot move the other page to variant. Undoing both moves. --TheWarforgedArtificer 13:18, 15 September 2009 (MDT)
- Uh-huh...that 'Gia" deity move is also inappropriate. Undoing that as well. --TheWarforgedArtificer 10:37, 16 September 2009 (MDT)
- Interesting, you put "lord of good" in the name...not strictly necessary, but certainly within your power. You also added to the Gia/Gaia pagename. Good job, though you still need to come over here and talk so I know for sure you got the message. --TheWarforgedArtificer 10:46, 16 September 2009 (MDT)
- Just edit this page like you would any other, sheesh. The only thing is, make sure you indent your post with one more colon than the previous post, and put four tildes ~~~~ at the end to sign. Otherwise, like said, edit as normal. --TheWarforgedArtificer 10:54, 16 September 2009 (MDT)
- One, don't actually put nowiki html tags. That's what makes the four tildes -not- turn into your signature, among other things. I'll have to looki at gaia, but I can take down the template on adonia now.
- EDIT: oh, it's already gone, nevermind.
- EDIT EDIT: Also, in the future, if you do something to a page (ESPECIALLY moving it), and you see it keeps going back somehow, stop immediately, and check the nearest talk page, or put a question yourself on the nearest talk page. Someone is probably trying to tell you something. This entire fiasco has made a huge tangle of looping redirects that have to be sorted out and deleted, because you apparently never saw the first comment in time and you kept trying to move the pages erroneously yourself. If you check your own user talk page, you will find a bunch of MoIs (Message of Interest) I kept throwing at you. In the future, if you get an MoI, follow it. --TheWarforgedArtificer 14:25, 16 September 2009 (MDT)
- Although the two are similar, I don't see why they have to be merged. The other makes a remodeled D&D version of the OT God in the Bible and this one is mostly a revamped, slightly more violent/just/ba god inspired by the OT and the NT in the Bible. I can rename mine if you want but I'd really like for them not to get merged. Ixidor 15:07, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
- And I took a look at the other page and, while I'm not saying this page one is necesarily better, it is far more comprehensive and complete that the other. If changes have to be made, I'd prefer to just rename mine. Ixidor 15:16, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
Ixidor again, I'm getting back into dandwiki and I just wanted to clean up this page. I fixed some of the more cumbersome parts and took out the huge picture. I'll be going over it with a fine-toothed comb later to fix my high-school writing. Ixidor, 13 November 2012
I believe someone got banned for using a rank in Islam in their campaign seeting. If this is true, is it appropriate to use "Adonai" and the Christian tradition in general as a deity/church? --Ganre (talk) 11:16, 14 November 2012 (MST)
Slight changes needed
Over deities don't have clerics as they don't grant spells (they may have clergy men and an order devoted to them but to be a priest or cleric in DnD requires spells.) Further enhancement of the flavor texts generally would be best as over deities are suppose to be the giant over arching cosmos gods. Tivanir (talk) 15:30, 20 March 2013 (MDT)
