@crescentfeathermoon - hope you don’t mind if I respond here, the post is getting a bit long but I really like your thoughts! Yeah, I could definitely see a strong association between Pan and Merle (along with associations between Merle, Magnus, and Taako with Istus, and Barry and Lup with the Raven Queen). Their association would be strongest, just because I think Pan would make a really big deal about it while Merle is still alive (he’s like a proud dad or something, it’s kind of adorable, and that definitely leads to misunderstandings years later).
And I saw your tags! I was actually thinking about that, and I think Merle would pay special attention to disabled people - I think he would keep an eye out for those with chronic pain as well, because Clint tweeted once that Merle does have chronic pain from his arm. On a related note, someone else (I’m sorry I can’t remember who) tagged about the twins looking out for starving children and I think they would, as well as homeless children. So I could see their temples being multipurpose as well - a lot of Merle’s temples double as clinics with clerics who specialize in disabilities, chronic pain, and prosthetics, while a lot of the twins’ temples have housing for abandoned children and runaways where they can stay until they’re grown or adopted.
I just really like the idea of the seven’s temples having functional purposes for people; it seems fitting, somehow, especially since the seven were so well-known as heroes in Faerun.
