I know that there are 12 Gods and at character creation you get to align yourself with one of them.

Does anyone know where I can get info/description on each of them? I don't think there is actual knowledge on the impact of choosing each but if someone has that I would also apreciate it.

If I recall correctly, there was some sort of beta character creation video on Youtube that had the guy browsing over the various Gods one could choose to worship. As far as I know, that's currently your best bet to get an early idea of what interests you.

Wow... if these play any sort of major roll with crafting I really hope you can change your god.

Due to the lack of information at the moment I'm thinking mostly from a RP point of view... if in the future it does affect the gameplay then one can always rethink and maybe reroll.

Yeah, based on those descriptions there's a few that would fit with the character I'm planning, cool if it's just RP...but that would suck if it matters more and I chose poorly. Though I remember seeing in one of the updates that they were working on a way for characters to change their deity "at a price."

Reminds me of Oblivion's star 'signs.' Whereby your stats would raise corresponding to what sign you picked. I don't remember the exact signs but I think was one like 'thief' or 'mischief' and that would raise your sneaking skill or whatever.

However these gods seem to pertain only to crafting, so I'm sure it will boost those stats a bit.

Will there be a 12 month year?
Corresponding to the 12 Gods?
Each Deity's followers get a crafting (or even combat) boost during their month?

I'm liking the guy with the Axe and the Hourglass.
Thanks for the great links guys!

This link shows all the descriptions on one page:

I'm most likely going to go with Llymlaen anyway, because it seems to fit with my idea of starting in Limsa Lominsa and being a Fisher. On top of that, she carries a harpoon, which also fits with me choosing Lancer for my DoW class.

Nice! The "Eorzean Calendar by Deity". Makes you wonder what the bonuses will be.

That would be pretty harsh if you had to re-roll after having a 100 hours of gameplay in ...

Found what I was thinking of earlier...

•The 12 gods of Eorzea are loosely based on Greek mythology, in that there is a pantheon of deities with different characteristics and personalities.
•Each god has an elemental affinity and will have some affect on the player. Whether or not players can meet and interact with these gods is still being kept under wraps.
•There are plans to let players change their selected god, but it will come with a penalty.

Exactly what i was going to do... I was going Miqo'te @ Limsa and doing some fishing. I will probably choose the same Diety as its inline with my goals.

If you watch the creation video you'll see before you pick your Deity there is 2 options for your "Nameday".. Is this supposed to be like your birthday? SE planning on sending us a gift on the day we pick?

Haven´t noticed that about the "Nameday" and it should indeed be cool to have a birthday ingame but somehow I very much doubt that SE will be sending gifts to people on their birthday...

Somewhere in Eorzea a pale, bald hume stands at the edge of a cliff...


The gods of Eorzea have abandoned me.

He then goes on to murder everything in sight while being a whiney little baby about things.

Am I the only person who doesn't care for "gods" in games? I know its the lore of the game and whatnot, I just always found that annoying. I guess its not my intrests or whatever.

Godless heathen!

Really it wouldn't interest me much except for the potential bonuses and seeing how they relate to the storyline & all that good stuff..

Lol, so we also have a choice of what god to choose? I bought collectors edition but it seems rather pointless cause it seems as if i'm going to spend my 1 week extra on just creating a character alone!

...Unless I get into beta, then I can have some fun with the character creation system.. :3
