      Thanks for the recommendations. I have a handful of books about the Navajo/Dine, after my initial exposure to them and neighboring cultures in Tony Hillerman's novels. (I'm sure there's a potential story about Sgt. Jim Chee being a Scion of the Diyin Dine, maybe of Changing Woman.) And it's a little easier to find stuff about the Cherokee where I live in eastern TN.

      It could be worse, though. I'm old enough to remember the second edition AD&D Legends & Lore book, with it's generic "Native American" pantheon. And the outright painful to read Rifts Spirit West.

      I still think that, as an April 1st release, OP needs to do a "generic European" pantheon for Scion, as a parody of those things. Cram G-d the Father, Zeus, and Santa Claus together into Bearded Skygod, some mix and match of Jesus, Robin Hood, Hercules and Thor into Hero Brothers, and so on.

        I have no objection, for whatever it's worth.

          Random Thought: Alternate History settings for Scion

          For the Greeks, a world where Alexander the Greek lived long enough to shore up his empire and go on to conquer the western Mediterranean, with Hellenistic Greek culture (along with Egyptian and Persian influences) becomes the basis for Western Civilization (which includes North Africa and Southwest Asia for this world).

          For the Norse, a world where the Normans never conquered England and the Little Ice Age never happened, resulting in a powerful Nordic cultural empire spread from Kiev to North America

          For the Aztecs, a world where Christopher Columbus decided his destiny was to lead a crusade against the Turks instead of being a navigator, holding off the European interaction with the Americas for another century or so, leading to a powerful Aztec Empire spread into the Caribbean, Mississippi delta and Southwest.

          For the Manitou, a world where the French won the Seven Years War, leaving the bulk of North America under their control and allowing the various Algonquian speaking nations to develop in their own territories without being displaced by English colonists.
