I meant any existing God who's Sphere of influence includes trade, although
those involved with travel might be a good addition. They don't even have to
be the Human Gods.

Remember, the existing Gods can belong to more than one pantheon. In the FR
pantheon there is a Celt God, and a Norse God. Difeerent Spheres may have
pantheons consisiting of the same old Dieties in Different arrangements. I
know a couple of mine do. Both Sagespace and Snakespace.

I don't know, the custom designing of Pantheons for different Spheres using
the same old Gods seems appropriate to SJ. After all, if you're a priest of
Quetzacouatl (for instance), wouldn't you like to know that you can count on
full spell ability in several Spheres?

And think of the dymanics of a sphere where all the Gods share a sphere of
interest. What would a sphere be like if all the Gods worshipped were War
Gods? What kits and classes would be predominate? The Libraries to be found
in a Sphere were all the Gods are patrons of sages, the hospitals in a Sphere
were all the Gods are healers? Hell, the level of health in that last sphere,
and the lack of fighter types, compared to priests, etc.

Thank You For Your Time,
