Deities of Amonkhet in D&D

It’s release day for Amonkhet!  I thought I’d make a small Amonkhet homebrew post before the normal Saturday content tomorrow, so here are the gods of Amonkhet represented in D&D:

(Posted in order of the Trials instead of WUBRG) The gods of Amonkhet serve to uphold the order of Amonkhet’s society focusing on the Trials, so they all seem lawful in that respect. Oketra, whose trial focuses on teamwork, makes sense as Amonkhet’s only good-aligned god, since her trial is probably the one in which initiates act the most selflessly. 

Kefnet and Rhonas are lawful neutral as their trials are focused not solely on teamwork, but personal ability, in mental and physical prowess respectively. While not focusing on the good of the whole, these trials, and therefore the acts of worshipping these two gods, are not inherently selfish, and as such they appear neutral in alignment. 

Bontu and Hazoret oversee the two trials dominated by selfish action. Bontu’s Trial of Ambition has the initiates turn upon one-another, putting themselves before the allies they had fought beside up to this point. Hazoret’s rules the trial in which the initiates all finally meet their deaths. As the one to drive them to kill each other, then kill the victor herself, Hazoret seems appropriate as a lawful evil deity.
