Best Fictional Deities
I don't intend to make this into an argument about real world religion, but I was wondering who people would say is the best fictional deity on a philosophical level. Which one's nature in your eyes is the best philosophically. I haven't decided entirely yet myself but I'll say Crom from the Conan stories.
This has nothing to do with any kind of might makes right type stuff but rather because of what he values. He values people getting things done. He tells you to fix your damn problems.If it was a problem you created you have to fix it. You shouldn't rely solely on his intervention when you are perfectly capable of fixing many situations yourself.Furthermore, he values inner strength before physical might.He values courage and valor before any mortal muscle.
