Greyhawk Gods in 5E

As I've been posting my progress on my Greyhawk 576 material for 5th Edition, someone asked if they could see a list of all the deities I'm planning on including. So here it is, subject to change, of course. Names marked with an asterisk are already done, with full write-ups including a unique divine domain for clerics who choose to take it, rather than one of the standard divine domains. (Where applicable - a couple of gods don't have clerics, only druids, but since Oerth has two moons, there's a Circle of Luna and a Circle of Celene.)

A few notes on the selections; I've deliberately left out Baklunish gods not listed in the Guide to the World of Greyhawk/From the Ashes. I am using non-Living Greyhawk material wherever possible, and am trying to make a synthesis of all the 1E, 2E, 3E, 4E, and 5E material I can. A few entries might surprise you, but I thought they were interesting, such as Stratis from the Sundered Empire setting of the early 2000's Chainmail game (brother of Hextor and Heironeous, who is still alive as of 576), and Vatun, the Suel god of winter who is imprisoned by the Oeridian god of winter, Telchur!

It's also worth noting that a few didn't make the list. Mayaheine and Vecna, for instance, didn't achieve demigod status in Oerth until around 585.

As a reminder, this is just a thought-exercise on my part, until and unless Wizards of the Coast allows third-parties to publish Greyhawk material on DM's Guild.

UPDATE: I'll be keeping this list up to date as I finish off gods, just in case anyone is interested in seeing progress made.
