Pantheons (updated, more 2 come)

Any avid reader of Gothic Horror, or Paranormal, knows almost every decent series involves at least one or more pantheon, whether it be Greek, Egyptian, Atlanteon or Norse. Though not all readers are familiar with any.  That being said, on this page I will be adding pantheons so that you can enhance your reading experience.  Trust when I say, when you know who the heroes and/or villains worship and why, it brings brand new meaning to the stories you already love.
