    It might be interesting to have a Data purview for a Modern god or even a Pantheon Specific Purview for a tech Pantheon.


    It is a time for great deeds!

      I’m tinkering with an American Gods inspired setting Shard (would not use these ideas for the World, as that setting by design lacks a new vs old dichotomy, the Old Gods have kept up) and something like that is my idea for Novus Ordo Seclorum’s PSP.

        I have been thinking about the idea of an Light Purview, to encompass more specific light themes not sun/moon related: Illumination, healing light, vision, truth, blinding, being fast and essentially instantaneous, etc.

        Specially a boon I have in mind of being able to "phase into light" for an instant, allowing the character to pass through transparent glass (or shoot through glass), punch or pass through grids (like chain-mail) and move through long tubes straight tubes like light. I also imagine one that cleans illusions or reveals secretes/hidden objects, and also some innate power ability to turn on/off light and control luminosity.

        Do you guys think it is a worth purview to make or it is better as just a specialization of sun?

        Thank you for your attention, have a good day.

          I think it's hard to work into a Purview that would then be distributed to existing deities as well, since that is a very scientific, and not a mythological way of viewing light. Jumping off Sun and specialising it via Marvels etc. to make a new, modern deity of modern conceptions of light makes more sense, at least to me.

            Yeah, something to keep in mind with Purviews... You're often not looking at the literal modern scientific versions. Like the Darkness Purview isn't just about literal shadow and dark, it's also sleep, night, and dreams.

            Scientifically, sleep and dreams have nothing to do with Darkness.

            But symbolically, they have a link through Dark = Night = Sleep = Dreaming.

            So the Sun isn't just about the Blazing Ball of Gas up above. It IS Light, Warmth, the Baleful Gaze That Dispels Falsehood. It's the SYMBOLIC Sun.

            So, Manbat you can probably get by with just custom Boons in the Sun Purview. Maybe when the Companion hits you can see the rules for Specific Purviews to use "Sun (Light)", like someone may use Fire (Volcanos) or Water (River)


            Disclaimer: I'll huff, grump, and defend my position, but if you're having fun I'll never say you're doing it wrong.

              The “Zohar” Purview i’m fiddling with as the Mal’akhim PSP touches on some of these concepts. And yeah, there is thematic overlap with Sun, but Wyrd overlaps with Fortune, Metamorphosis with Beast, Tianming with Order, etc - so i’ve decided not to sweat it.
