    A question about this "Material detailing monotheistic pantheons is not permitted." line:

    Is this merely about not writing them up as pantheons, or does this prohibit writing about all their mythological elements?

    For example, the Devil is pretty hard to avoid in German folklore. Could I write something about him on the Nexus, or is this prohibited?

      This is a really great supplement. I'd really love to see something similar for the other pantheons, if anyone out there has the interest and expertise.

        Obviously can’t comment on official policy, but my own view is that the devil of folklore is a pretty distinct figure from the one of serious Christian theology, or even theologic literary tradition. I’d suggest including him with a note that people don’t know whether or not he’s the true Satan of Christian theology or just some other being using the monicker. As you aren’t doing an Abrahamic Pantheon i’d be surprised if it’s a problem.

          Contact customer service about this. Trust me, it'll end better than working from forum speculation.

                This is absolutely excellent. I think this might be the most purely benevolent pantheon in the game.

                  To be fair there’s an anthropological reason for that. The least benevolent pantheons tend to be those that are non-continuous living traditions because they reflect ancient attitudes trapped in amber (see Theoi, etc). The old continuous living traditions are more mixed because they have the same legacy baggage + continuous moral evolution over time. The Cortes Divinas are a younger pantheon than any of the ones in the core and thus reflect comparatively more modern sensibilities without having to balance ancient narratives that sometimes lack those sensibilities the way the Deva (for example) do.
