I'm a game designer that's been playing tabletop games since the early '00s. Most of my experience is with the D&D 3/3.5/Pathfinder ruleset, but I've been branching out more in the past few years.

@SevenSidedDie Advancement works by fiat, everything else has a bunch of systems that make it run. For certain values of "run".

Sure, but if you make a book that contains tons of mechanics and little fluff, you should probably at least make the mechanics work together. :) I would argue that statting out gods at all is a mistake, and this book just encourages you to make that mistake worse.

Deities and Demigods is a 3.0 book, not 3.5.

comment Does a White Mage Arcanist need to Use Magic Device to activate a Wand of Cure Light Wounds?
I think you misunderstood my misunderstanding. I'm saying that if being able to cast a spell from an item lets you make a magic item, then being able to cast a spell without a magic item works exactly as well in meeting requirements. The important part is that you can cast the spell, not where you got the ability to cast the spell.

You can already make wands just by being able to cast the spell. The crafting rules say "(although access through another magic item or spellcaster is allowed)". If you can meet a prereq by having a magic item cast the spell, you can certainly meet it by casting the spell yourself.
