Random D&D 5E Pantheons

I have made several pantheons of gods before but I wanted to do something a bit different for 5th Edition.  I still think the idea of a god only having one or two domains seems strange but in trying to stay close to 5E's way of doing things that is what I am going to stick to.  I wanted to come up first with a bunch of domains (which you can see on my YouTube channel and on this blog) and then I rolled them up randomly so that each god had 2 domains.  I like the results.

Tim's Random Pantheon Generator

Roll a D30 twice for each deity. Once you select a domain scratch it off the list. If you roll that result again pick the closest available domain above or below it or pick between the two closest results.

1) Air 16) Moon
2) Animals 17) Nature
3) Charm / Enchantment 18) Plants
4) Crafts 19) Protection
5) Darkness 20) Revenge
6) Death 21) Slime
7) Destruction 22) Stars
8) Earth 23) Strength
9) Fate 24) Suffering
10) Fire 25) Tempest
11) Illusions 26) Trade
12) Knowledge 27) Travel
13) Life 28) Trickery
14) Light 29) War
15) Magic 30) Water



Here are my results as an example.

9, 22 - Fate, Stars
29, 2 - War, Animals
17, 28 - Nature, Trickery
14, 4 - Light, Crafts
13, 20 - Life, Revenge
*17*(18), 10 - Plants, Fire
8, *13*(12) - Earth, Knowledge
26, 23 - Trade, Strength
*23*(24), *22*(21) - Suffering, Slime
5, *5*(6) - Darkness, Death
*8*(7), *29*(30) - Destruction, Water
*8*(11), *8*(3) - Illusions, Charm / Enchantment
*22*(19), *22*(25)  Protection, Tempest
16, *2*(1) - Moon, Air
Last 2 Domains - Magic, Travel

*#* Result was already taken.
(#) Closest result or choice if tied.


I put up a quick video here talking about this idea and about the beginnings of the new pantheon that I'm still working on.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ba2VyLYWaM
