This thread is ten years old. Fenris have you ever tried ShadowChemosh's deity hider? (I know it's for the Pathfinder pack...)

<thing id="ECSDeities" name="Eberron Mechanic, Deities" description="Hide all non-Eberron deities if the source &quot;Hide Non-Eberron Deities&quot; is turned on." compset="Simple" uniqueness="unique">
<usesource source="srcOnlyEbe"/>
<eval phase="First" priority="10000"><![CDATA[
~ Find all non-Eberron deities
foreach thing in Deity where "!DeityCat.S2Eberron & !thingid.deiAtheist & !thingid.deiOther"
~ If no deity category then pull the thingid
If (eachthing.tagcount[DeityCat.?] = 0) Then
perform eachthing.pulltags[thingid.?,HideDeity]
~ If we have a category then pull the cateogry only
~ if we have not already pulled it.
Else
If (eachthing.intersect[DeityCat,DeityCat] = 0) then
perform eachthing.pulltags[DeityCat.?]
Endif
Endif
nexteach
~ Create Hide Deity Catagory tags
perform pulltags[DeityCat.?,HideDeiCat]
~ Push the hide deity tags to the hero
perform hero.pushtags[HideDeiCat.?]
perform hero.pushtags[HideDeity.?]
]]></eval>
</thing>

I haven't looked at this. If it's something people want, it could maybe be a pair of adjustments: one that hides all deities of a chosen category and another that hides everything except the deities of a chosen category.

The code works perfect but the way it's written is as a mechanic that gets loaded through the configure hero options rather than as adjustments added later.

It wouldn't be a problem to modify it to adjustments but it boils down to if you want to clutter up your adjustments tab or your configure hero tab.

Like I said, I have a "hide Gods" user file that just precludes all the official deities, and then I went and copied each pantheon to their own user file so I can choose them when configuring a hero.

ShadowChemosh's idea intrigued me but I never manage to get it to...work. *sad face*

I've added this as something I'm going to look at for release 3.2 (3.1 is about to release). No promises, but ShadowChemosh's code makes sense.

I just realized it's much harder to do than I thought. I was thinking we could just to a tag expression to pull the various deity categories. But since those are just tags, it's not actually something we can generate a list of. So...crap.

dungeonguru was getting at this. The simple but bloated way is to just make an adjustment or mechanic for each pantheon. But that's way too bloated. I have other ideas for less bloated solutions, but they still would require manual additions every time a pantheon is added. I'll think more about it.

I think I’m on to something that’ll make this work. I’ll have to test it when I get home. Since the headers for each pantheon are marked as Show Only, they should have a thing.showonly tag. Unless that tag isn’t used in the 5e data set, we can build a list of pantheons to pick from by looking for all deities that have that tag. Then you select that pantheon, we pull that deity category tag, and limit based on that. The only other question is whether or not the name will show up funky on the generated drop-down list, thanks to the formatting we use for pantheon names. We’ll have to see how it goes, but this is better than manually making helper things for each pantheon, which is what I was going to have to do.

Well...that didn't work. The fact that they’re marked as show only is probably why they’re not showing up on the drop down. Looks like it's back to the drawing board.

EDIT: So I think I’ve exhausted all other options for doing this in a more automatic fashion. I think I’ll have to make Simple Things for each pantheon, creating a pool for the adjustment to pull from. When new pantheons are added, a new Simple Thing will need to be created for that pantheon in order for it to be used in this hiding adjustment. I may push this to release 3.3, depending on whether I get to it soon.
