This article is about an older version of DF.

Deities, demons, and megabeasts are aligned in spheres. A sphere is an aspect where a being has influence. Civilizations have sphere alignments as well.

Understanding spheres[edit]

A being such as a deity, demon and occasionally megabeast may come to represent or epitomize certain things like emotions, qualities, terrain, and items. They are called "spheres". As an example from real-world mythology, the Greek goddess Athena is goddess in the "spheres" of wisdom, warfare, handicrafts and reason. She is therefore the goddess of wisdom.

Dwarves and other creatures will come to worship certain "powerful beings" and as such will follow that religion, and have a relationship with that "deity"

The following is according to Toady:

Spheres have a parent/child list, a friend list, and a preclude list. A deity has either one or two base spheres, and then they pick friends of those spheres, while never choosing a precluded or parent/child sphere of any of the spheres they already have. I tried to be pretty lax with the preclude list so that interesting relationships could pop up. There will obviously be problems and omissions and things here, since I had to match 100+ spheres together several times and no doubt made mistakes. Feel free to discuss.

Parent/child relationships (note that a sphere can have more than one parent):
