We're all familiar with the portrayal of deities that are fairly distant, have their tenets, dispense spells to the worthy, and their agenda is largely executed by their minions. They're fairly easy to do, too.
I've once failed (quite thoroughly) at properly portraying a deity that a PC had as patron. Thus: how about deities that have a more personal approach, though? How would one go about playing NPC deities that have a more personal note? What are the do's and don't s? What are good ways of maintaining a personal note while still maintaining the divine, otherworldly, aspect of the deity? How does one go about being able to meet the deity face to face, yet still maintaining mystery and faith? How does one best implement a deity as a patron, without breaking challenges for heroes?
