Subject: Oh, yikes! Yep, that's what I meant. ((Also: list of assorted canons with gods)

Sorry, didn't even think about alternate meanings... I've gone back and changed it to Real World.

Hekate is definitely a Real World god, I'm afraid, unless you know another god who just happens to share the name. (It could happen!)

As a general reference/inspiration for people, these are the canons that spring to mind when I think about gods:

-Middle-earth -Discworld -Queen's Thief (Megan Whalen Turner) -Young Wizards -Narnia -Various Eddings series, notable Belgariad/Malloreon, Elenium/Tamuli, Redemption of Althalus, Dreamers -Star Wars (as discussed earlier) -Doctor Who (the Guardians count, for example) -Warhammer 40K -Dresden Files (HI, MAB! ... does Mab count? I mean, she has at least one god who answers to her, so...) -Earthsea -Star Trek (notably the Klingon pantheon) -The Good Place (y'know... arguably)

I could go on, but I'd have to delve deeper into my own head, and who does that? The point is just to give people an idea of the sorts of places they could look. (And an idea of which ones I have reference materials to hand for, but please don't let that stop you!)
