The American Mythos Art of Deities and Demigods

One of the original Dungeons & Dragons books I received was the 1st Edition of Deities and Demigods. I tried to keep it in good shape, but over the years, it has been the book that has given me the most problems. Last month, while browsing through it, the spine cracked hard and pages started falling out of it at a rapid rate. A replacement was quickly ordered, but what to do with the loose pages?

Well I plan on holding on to them, but I also thought it would be fun to share a gallery of each of the mythos in the book, along with the art in this section. So this will be the first part of what I am hoping will be a multi-part series. Today I take a look at the American Mythos.

We did not have many playing sessions featuring a Native American setting, but as a player, I one time made a halfling thief who venerated the Raven. The back story was convoluted, so I was glad the DM and my fellow players never asked any questions.
