How dare you talk about my mother that way!!!
Speaking of the deities, it actually has occurred to me that the 9 deities in Desktop Dungeons seem to roughly fall into the nine alignments of Dungeons and Dragons:
Glowing Guardian - Lawful Good
Binlor Ironshield - Lawful Neutral
Dracul - Lawful Evil
Mystera Annur - Neutral Good
Pactmaker - Neutral
Tikki Tooki - Neutral Evil
Earthmother - Chaotic Good
Jehora Jeheyu - Chaotic Neutral
Taurog - Chaotic Evil
A lot of that is arguable and conjecture, but I still find it fairly interesting and indicative that the pantheon was designed for maximum coverage of different fantasy ethos.
