They were serpentine monsters and most of them weren't accounted to be flying around like dragons in other mythologies.
The Greeks separated dragons into three family groups which included the serpent-like Draconesthe marine-dwelling Cetea and the she-monster-like creatures Dracaena. Colchian Dragon - never-sleeping dragon which guarded the Golden Fleece in Colchis.
God of Destruction
It is said that the dragon never lowered its vigilance. During the retrieving of golden fleece, it was put to sleep by Orpheus ' soft tunes and Medea 's magical potion. Cychreides - a dragon which terrorised Salamis before being slain by Cychreus whom the dragon got its name after. There is another version of story which tells us that the dragon was captured by Eurylochus who gifted it to Demeter.
Ismenian Dragon - a dragon which guarded the sacred spring of Ares near Thebes. It was slain by Cadmus in his quest of founding Thebes when he went after his men who did not return, after sending them for water.
Ladon - a serpent-like dragon with hundred heads which guarded the apples of Hesperides. It is said that the serpent did not need to sleep entirely. While sleeping, at least couple of heads were always awake and focused. Lernaean Hydra - a nine-headed dragon with deadly venom which guarded the springs of Lerna. It was slain by Heracles in the second of his twelve labours.
However, he was having help from Lolaus and therefore this labour didn't count. Python - a dragon set by Gaea to guard the sacred shrine in Delphi. It was slain by Apollo who was seeking revenge for previously pursuing his mother Leto when she was pregnant.
Cetea were sea monsters. They usually featured in myths of a hero rescuing a sacrificial princess. Ethiopian Cetus - a sea monster sent by Poseidon to ravage Ethiopia, after Cassiopeia bragged that her daughter Andromeda was more beautiful than the Nereids, relatives of Poseidon.
The monster was later slain by Perseus who came to rescue Andromeda. Trojan Cetus - a fearsome sea monster sent by Poseidonafter the king of Troy refused to pay him for the walls which the god had helped to build there. The monster was slain by Heracles who, like Perseus, came to rescue Hesione from being sacrificed. Echidna - a half maiden and a half serpent who was nothing like men nor undying gods but still immortal and never aged.
It is said that she was a consort of Typhoeus or Typhon and bore him Orthusthe two-headed dog. Campe - a she-dragon with a beautiful face and upper body but had a monstrous viperish tail. She was tasked by Cronus to guard the gates of Tartarus where he imprisoned the Cyclopes and Hekatoncheries. It is said that she was killed by Zeus who came to rescue the prisoners and make them his allies. Scythian Dracaena - a she-dragon that ruled the lands of Scythia.
It is said that she mated with Heracles who agreed to a compensation of giving him back a couple of mares from Geryon's flock that she captured. After, she gave birth to three sons, AgathyrsosGelonosSkythes. Feel free to share with your friends:. Mythical animals. Mythical monsters.Because the Core Setting is based on the World of Greyhawkthe Greyhawk gods list contains most of the deities listed here, and many more.
DnDWiki:List of deities
Note that there is some overlap between the categories. Most of the head deities of the demihuman pantheons, such as Corellon Larethian and Moradinfor example, are both obviously demihuman powers but are also mentioned in the Player's Handbook and as such core powers as well.
Hence they appear on both lists. Before 3rd Edition, there was no Core Setting, so the distinctions above are not as clear-cut. For the most part, materials which did not specify a setting were assumed to be at least compatible with the World of Greyhawk if not outright parts of the canon. As such, those prior materials are covered in the setting-specific lists of deities. There are over deities in the Greyhawk setting, and when creating Dungeons and Dragons 3rd Edition Wizards of the Coast selected a subset to become iconic deities.
Certain aspects of the deities were altered to make them more generic - for example: the "Core" Heironeous favors the longsword in order to make the favored weapon of the "God of Chivalry" more traditionally knight-likeas contrasted with the original "Greyhawk" Heironeous, who favors the battleaxe. The designation of "greater" vs. Although some of these originally come from the Greyhawk or Forgotten Realms campaign settingseach one is mentioned at some point in a non-setting-specific source.
The name in brackets next to each one specifies the source they are mentioned in. Demihuman deities refers to the gods of the core races besides humans e. Note that goliaths and raptorans are special, additional core races that were described in the Races of Stone and Races of the Wild supplement books respectively.
Most of the elven deities other than Corellon Larethian are found in the Races of the Wild supplement. They are organized in a pantheon called the Seldarine — a term which originated in Dragon magazine issue 60, but has been most widely used in the Forgotten Realms setting.
Monster deities refers to the gods of the monstrous races; in other words, those of races that are primarily to fight and are not generally intended as player characters. It should be noted that most of these beings are not actually gods.
Most of the beings listed below are actually just very powerful extra-planar beings, though many have designs on godhood. The deities of the Drowan evil, underground-dwelling subrace of true Elves, are arranged in a corrupted version of the Elven pantheon called the Dark Seldarine.
The deities of fey and other mystical, nature-loving creatures are arranged in a pantheon called the Seelie Court. Similar to monster powers, these are not true deities but very powerful extraplanar beings. These however do not even profess to be gods though many still have designs on godhood. The single unifying feature of all demon lords also called demon princes is the control of one of the infinite layers of The Abyss.
The celestial paragons are powerful unique outsiders of the Upper Planes. They are to the celestials as the archdevils are to the devils and the demon lords are to demons. The celestial paragons of the archons are known collectively as the Celestial Hebdomad.
They rule the layers of the Plane of Mount Celestia. The celestial paragons of the eladrins are collectively known as The Court of Stars. They hail from the Plane of Arborea. The celestial paragons of the guardinals are collectively known as Talisid and the Five Companions. They hail from the plane of Elysium. Sign In Don't have an account? Start a Wiki.

Whether they are good or bad, they exist. This list will more or less contain the versions of the deities from 3. The information box that should eventually grace each god's page, summing up their information in a nutshell.
A bunch of gods with their own portfolio exist, have varying relationships with other deities, their own myths and doctrines, and each deity tries to advance their own portfolio and doctrine in the world.
Tight pantheons differ in that the gods usually have either a ruler among them, or some other body of myths, doctrine, or rituals common with them, with an aberrant deity or two whose worship is frowned upon. Most people in either of them are either polytheistic or henotheistic, acknowledge the other gods but only worship one or some of them.
Cults of a single deity, or at most a handful of deities, where the personal relationship with the deity is emphasized. Largely based on a ritual of initiation where the person is mystically identified with the deity in question, and are taught their own unique myths. Often associated with gods of nature, and a part of other religious systems.
Dennari 's faith is an example of deity with a mystery cult. You probably know what monotheism means, and if you don't look it up ya dingus! Here, you two opposing forces Law vs. Chaos, Good Vs. Evil, etc. Most believe that one is good and the other is evil, but some say that the two must remain at balance for the best result.
Elishar and Toldoth are examples of a dualistic religion and its deities. Spirits are everywhere here, and I mean literally everywhere, a tree has its spirit, as does everyone of its leaves, and so does the mountain, the sun and moon, the river, your computer, and that pebble over there. Most people here tend give praise and sacrifices to a specific spirit depending on the occasion and situation, whiles a cleric worships a handful of them as his or her patrons.
Of course, some gain their powers from their devotion and beliefs of some ideal or philosophy honor, freedom, wealth, power, etc. They don't deny the existance of deities, they just think them as too much like the mortals who worship them. All it really means is that the greater deities rank the more powerful they are, more generalized their portfolio's are, and, depending on the setting, how many worshippers they have.
The ranks shown here are the ones used in 3. There are also two unique divine ranks that are tied to cosmologies outside of the Great Wheel Whether or not people actually like this idea of "defictionalizing" real-world mythologies, which people can get rather touchy about The gods of Dragonlance each have a constellation in the night sky or one of the three moons.
When a god walks in the world among mortals, that constellation is absent from the sky, which is a dead giveaway to the other gods.New to Shacknews? Signup for a Free Account. Unlike how Kratos deals with most monsters, these three dragons must be freed in order to gain rewards.
Finding these dragons can be a bit challenging, as can actually freeing them from their shackles. The way to free all three dragons in God of War is the same for each one. Each dragon will be connected by a tether to a central statue engraved with runes. Find these runes around the area and destroy them to free the dragon and claim the rewards. Fafnir can be found to the north-east of the Lake of Nine behind the Alfheim Tower. To reach this side area, the water must be lowered a second time.
The cave system can be found by going to the Alfheim Tower, and then slightly north of it to find a dock near two giant statues with crossed oars. Enter through the large double doors at the top of the cliff to enter this little area. To free Fafnir, all three runes must be destroyed before Kratos can interact with the tether.
The next is found by following the main path around to the left. It's at the end of the path by itself. The last rune is found in the upper level on the right, accessed by climbing the cliff — be careful, a Traveler waits at the top.
With the three runes destroyed, approach the tablet and prepare for a fight. Two Vikens will spawn along with a Revenant. Another dragon can be found in Veithurgard, a region to the east of the Lake of Nine.
This region contains a few Eyes of Odin ravensalong with a Nornir chest. From the dock, take the central path up the middle to find the dragon perched on the cliff. The first rune can be found by running up the path toward the dragon, and then taking a hard left. Stick to the left and the rune will be at the edge of a cliff.
The second rune can be found by approaching the dragon and going to the right, it is a short distance up the path. To reach the final rune, Kratos will need to go far left of the dragon toward a collection of stones, and then to the right to access the bridge with the gold rocks blocking the way. To clear the rocks, move through the area, going past a collection of Stonehenge-like structures to get another angle on the bridge. Aim for the explosive pot to clear the rocks for easy access.
Head up to the large rune-locked double doors and input the correct runes T and R, N and F and continue through the passage. Stick to the right to exit onto a plateau near the dragon and the last rune shrine. Return to the dragon and interact with the lock to free it. Speak to Brok and Sindri every time you see them to receive some small tasks.Written by GreekBoston. Many of the creatures that existed in Greek mythology were either considered to be large serpents, or they at least part of them contained serpent-like features.
It is important to understand that not all of these creatures may not be looked at as dagons in the traditional sense. However, they all meet the definition. The child of Gaia, the earth mother, Typhon not only wreaked havoc, he also was the father to many different fearsome creatures. Some sources do describe him as being dragon-like, with hundreds of fearsome, serpentine heads.
Ladon was one of the creatures in Greek mythology that looked most like a dragon. He was most known for winding his body around a tree in the Garden of Hesperides. His main role was to guard the golden apples that were so prized in this garden. He was considered to be a true dragon, or drakon. This fearsome creature is often depicted as having serpent-like features and multiple heads, sometimes up to one hundred of them or more, depending on the source.
Pytho, or Python, was actually considered to be a huge serpent, or dragon, that inhabited the area around Delphi. In this poem, Homer talked about how the creature was born and also his death, which occurred after a battle between Python and Apollo. This creature actually had the honor of being referred to as a dragon in his name.
His main role was to guard the Golden Fleece in Colchia. It is said that this dragon never slept. Eventually, he was given a sleeping aid so that the golden fleece could be taken. As you can see, there were certainly plenty of dragons that were present in Greek mythology.
All of these creatures were also considered to be fearsome monsters in their own right. Wikipedia — Dragons in Greek Mythology. Categorized in: Greek Mythology.
