Major characteristics of deity in D&D 3.5e are domains and alignment. It is common sense that deity with law domain should have lawful alignment, deity with evil domain should have evil alignment etc. , however, I would like to know what is the most common alignment for deities with other domains (e.g. strength, trade etc.).

Is there any document that provides statistics of domain-alignment dependences for official D&D 3.5e deities and domains?

To clarify, I imagine that it would look something like this:

\begin{array}{|c|l|} \hline \text{Domain} & \text{LG} & \text{LN} & \text{LE} & \text{NG} & \text{N} & \text{NE} & \text{CG} & \text{CN} & \text{CE} \\ \hline \text{Strength} & 23\% & 12\% & 10\% & 20\% & 2\% & 8\% & 4\% & 2\% & 19\% \\ \hline \end{array}

So in above example, 23% of deities that have strength domain have LG alignment, 12% have LN alignment and so on.

Based on the list of domains here, which I believe to be particularly thorough, I produced a Google document, found here. It lists the domains for each deity, then gets their alignments, then counts each alignment, and finally produces a percentage for each. That final table is reproduced below. Entries listed as “—” here are #DIV/0! there, that is, they divide by zero since there were no entries.

To look up the alignment for each deity, I used a number of sources (mostly Curmudgeon’s and IMarvinTPA’s, with the rest found via Google). I still have no data on a Forgotten Realms deity named “Tempest” if anyone knows of that one (searches only found info on the Tempest Domain).

  • \$\begingroup\$ Do you think there's an option to add "total number of deities"? There are a few with 100% for one alignment, which makes me assume that there's only 1 deity with that domain, but I might be wrong. Would be nice to be able to see maybe. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @Erik The linked spreadsheet has that information in the Alignment Counts sheet. It wouldn’t fit within the limited width of SE answers, so I can’t add it to the table here. \$\endgroup\$
