I like the twist on the fire and war Goddess (anyone else get an American Revolution feel from her?) and the Light and Redemption God.
So what other Gods would you like to see in the game.
I'd like to see a Nature Goddess, A Necromaticon type God/s, A God like DCs Sleez, God of Water/Ice, A Goddess of Knoweldge and Magic, God of Love and the Hunt (think Cupid without the diaper), Goddess of Time, God of Death and the Earth and Goddess of Undeath, Ancestor Spirits (acting as a Collective God), A Goddess of Thieves and Crime, The Lars a Collective of minor Gods, A fiendish God of Suffering and Revenge.
Just a few suggestions, any other ideas?

Basically (minor spoilers), he chucks his "death note" (that allows him to decide who dies and how) book into the human world for the sole reason that he's bored and wants to see what happens when a mortal picks it up and decides to use it. Very Greek mythology-esque but with a nice twist. One of the neat scenes in the series is Ryuk casually eating an apple while talking to the protagonist and sitting there on a desk in the guy's bedroom while looking completely out of place. It was pretty surreal but a bit humorous at the same time.
He's more of a sort of grim reaper type character than a "god" per say, but still pretty "supernatural". Anyways, I guess this is all meaningless if you haven't read/watched it, but it's good stuff
But ya something like that would be cool.

Scarcely anyone who knows of Insumnus loves him. Instead, most prayers that he receives come in the form of song, songs that are unfathomably harmonious while subtley repetitive. These hymns are designed to distract and confuse Insomnus, sometimes lingering in the back of his mind for a long time after they have ended, to get stuck in his head so to speak. While they are somewhat effective in slowing the pace of Insomnus's omnicidal rampage, only once in every few lifetimes is anyone born who can use their prayer to worm their way deep enough into Insomnus's subconscious to truly stun him. As a result, some of Insomus's more fanatical prophets have taken a more direct approach in protecting the world from his wrath, secretly murdering inventors and all else who would risk a dangerously noisy change to the status quo. Some prophets, after having particularly vivid dreams of the violence the Insomnus has committed will even go as far as to attempting to sharply depopulate the world in the hopes that Insomnus will harmlessly pass by out world in the pursuit of one more noisy.

I guess I've found my patron diety then.
Hippopotomonstrosesquipedalius, the confused god of everything that's long!
Seriously, I'd like to see a weak marginalised god who pertitions the players for help to rise back to their former glory - might be fun. They would be the god of, well, something that used to be relevant but isn't so relevant anymore.

Hey, General, when is the holy day so I can offer a prayer up to you.
(p.s. please don't destroy my planet with your awesome powaz, and where do you buy your jumpsuits?)

So I always hope to see set ups where the gods, despite identifying particularly with this element or that activity, still claim supremacy over the entirety of mortal life and promote comprehensive worldviews that would actually impact the way that people live. So instead of god of knowledge who appeals only to scholars and bards, make a god who preaches that all suffering can be stopped through the identification of and rigid adherence to axiomatic laws, resulting in a highly legalistic theocracy that is polarized between an academic elite and a close-minded rural base. Instead of a god of time who appeals only to historians and clockmakers, a god who preaches that the physical world is fundamentally sinful and corrupt and that therefore the role of the faithful is to endure the different phases of their life as stoically as possible, because the decay of their physical bodies over time represents their gradual liberation towards a more pure state of being, whose worship is particularly popular among the oppressed and impoverished. Or instead of a chaotic-lulzy god of thieves and trickery who appeals only to society's misfits, a god who preaches that the world exists so that mortals may explore the mind of god through it, meaning no mortal state may impede the faithful from sensory pursuits, resulting in a religious culture of lawlessness and hedonism on one extremes but great artistic and intellectual accomplishment on the other.
It has to make sense to why entire cultures and nations would worship a deity, and how that deity's worship would impact how they view different, unrelated aspects of their life. In relation to P:E and souls, there are so many ways to build this sort of theology as different gods offer different explanations as to the nature of the world, the nature of the soul, and a mortal's obligations in life in order to advance the soul along some spiritual objective. If that potential started and stopped at "god of war, whom you pray to for fighting" and "god of nature, who doesn't want you to chop down trees" it would be both a terrible waste and terribly boring.

I cant get into the mindset where everybody would think it's completely ok to have them around.
