    What powers do the fair folk possess in the scion bestiary?
    could you expand on the process of taking a role that a scion can do once he becomes a god?
    you mentioned before about the Keepers Of The World,who plan to seal the world from gods, I was wondering do the Keepers plan to be the only gods in the world so they can rule it?

      At what point are we likely to start seeing settings other than the World? Will it not be until after Demigod and God have both come out?

      Can you tell us anything about a few of the other settings you have planned?

        Since all the Pantheons need to be expanded with each power upgrade (at very least for their Pantheon Specific Purviews), are there plans for handling that for the Demigod and God upgrades for the Yazata and Nemetondevos, or the God upgrades for the Pantheons to be introduced in the Demigod book?

        Any word on when the community content platform on Drivethrurpg will go live?

        Will it be possible for Incarnate Scions of living deities to exist? This seems to be how the Deva largely operate, though they reabsorb the new Mantle when it achieves Godhood. On the other hand, it might be how gods that start as cultural variants of another god become independent deities, a Mantle spinning off to Incarnate itself. Am I on the right track here?

          Are the Hopi Kachinas among your planned pantheons?

              Ad you go up in Tiers will you Boons get upgraded in power? I ask this because your boon amount is locked at legend+1 and while many of the Hero boons are powerful compared to what you would think Gods would have many do seem short. Also can Booms get exchanged? From what I've seen I think no but when looking at the Gods with a shit ton of purviews I wonder if that means they are actually more limited at specific powers then I would have thought.

              Do Titan's really have just one purview or is the one listed just the one that influences them? Do Titan's have legend similar to Gods and are their any other differences that you can reveal this early tho I doubt it.

                Will the bestiary introduce new Denizen Paths? I’m particularly wondering about playable alfar/sidhe/etc or dwarves?

                  Do you foresee a place in the setting for characters who start mundane but are elevated to divinity as Culture Heroes by Legend alone? Or does it require the intervention of a God to make them a Chosen Scion?

                    We appreciate the questions coming in so far! We have another couple weeks of open questions, so keep them coming.

                      The outline for the Companion you shared mentioned including a write up for Columbia. Would her Scions be Theoi (since she originates as a Scion of Athena), or is a new Pantheon Path being written, or do you have some catchall system in mind for lone deities without broader covered Pantheons like her and Anansi?

                        ElfSpeaker as traffic on this forum is low compared to the fanbase as a whole, you might want to at least drop links on rpg.net, the kickstarter comments page, the Onyx Path Community Facebook page.... I think there's a Discord.... not sure if there's an appropriate subreddit or not... you get the idea.

                          Thank you for the advice. I'll spread this around the net a little more.

                            Can you tell us anything yet about the role of the Knights Templars in the setting?

                              What is your guys favorite pantheon

                              I’m curious on you guys take on Prometheus. From what it sounded like his desire for spreading fire was like that of a ,ad scientist which is nice, but if Titans are so deatached to humanity how can the myth of Deucalion be as it is?
