    These are great. I particularly like the limit conditions.


    My characters:
    Dr Soma Vaidya, viper-totem Lunar and kung-fu doctor
    Brother Alazar, Zenith occultist and last survivor of the Black Monastery of Leng

      Really the more problematic aspect is their respective roles in their narratives. Medea murdered Jason's children and her own brother after getting bamboozled into falling in love and then spurned; Hippolyta immediately agrees to give Heracles the prized belt given to her by her father, only to immediately be killed over a deception by Hera (or, in some versions, given to the hero Theseus).
      They don't really have stories of their own, a trend for that people. Problematic is letting yourself ignore what they can be in this game because you don't like how they were portrayed nearly 3000 years ago.

      Hyppolyta has a plentiful enough status to boast, despite not having her own stories. "Queen of the amazons and daughter of ares" and the feats of the amazons spread over the stories should give you enough to work.
      It's as if Achilles only had the one story where he is shot down and dies.

      Medea makes for a pretty fierce godblood sorceress (there's little else in her writings that would give her a bigger splat), and being eclipsed by the exalted is standard fare. Everyone involved ought to regret dismissing her tho.

        Do Lunar charms allow for something like witchy elixers and potions and such for Medea?


        I did a lot of homebrew over here. PEACH.

          ... you know, Medea being Jason’s No Moon Mate might work perfectly, accounting for her sudden love for him she was willing to betray her father for (and the depths she took his betrayal)

            Fair point. We can definitely do better at this point.

              There's Lunar medicine charms about herbs and so forth.

              But there's also a sorcerous initiation about herbs and potions.

                Atalanta (Full Moon), Autolycus (Changing Moon), Medea (No Moon), and Periclymenus (Casteless) can join the team once we get the complete Lunar Charm set

                Still need to figure out a Night Caste figure since Autolycus is a Changing Moon. Odysseus would work except he’s not an Argonaut (his dad is and maternal grandad are).
