Lesser deities often serve other gods in the capacity of helpers. They are the least powerful of the upper echelons of divinity, in that they are entitled to exclusivity in their portfolios among all other deities of their rank and above. Their powers are mighty, but in no way equal to those of greater or intermediate gods.
Sensing Abilities: Lesser deities always know what is happening within 10 miles of themselves. They can extend their senses to include knowledge of all that is transpiring within 10 miles of any of their worshipers or any of their holy objects. They can also extend their senses to know what is happening within 10 miles of where anyone or anything that speaks one of their names or titles currently is for a day after the name is spoken. The sensing ability can be blocked by the conscious effort of deities of equal stature or the unconscious desires of those of greater stature.
Creation: Lesser deities cannot create or duplicate any object out of nothing. But they know where to find any object that they desire that already exists. If they desire an object that does not exist, they can sense the location of those who can manufacture it. Often lesser gods have alliances with intermediate or greater deities that allow them to rely on their more powerful friends for assistance with the creation of objects.
Life and Death: Lesser deities share the ability to raise any previously living mortal from the dead. They can do this at will and across any distance of barrier, regardless of current condition of the body.
Multitasks: Lesser deities can perform up to five tasks at once without suffering any penalties of any sort.
Avatars: Lesser deities can only use two avatars at a time, moving them throughout the planes at will. If one is destroyed, it requires one month to make another.
