RPG pantheons

was looking at a list of RPG gods and thinking, this list is very like actual pagan gods. You have everything from deities that are next things to abstractions all the way to humans who've undergone apotheosis. So what was bugging me about it as a representation of paganism?

Maybe it was the myths. They were a bit thin (there's not that much scope in a rule book) and consistent, but after all it was a world where the gods could keep the stories straight. . . .
