    Edit: Also on the whole 'Different sets of Virtues' that's possible, but it'd probably be better to like... Instead of one BIG Pantheon that encompasses everything vaguely Abrahamic, see if you could at least make them related but slightly separate Pantheons? I know that at one time someone made an Abrahamic writeup that was a great deal more Jewish than Christian. (Warning: Incomplete and probably won't get updated but it has a lot of what you need)

    So you can totally justify a Hebrew Angelic Host Pantheon, something with Islam (I don't know enough about Islam to even guess as the cosmology differences) and some things for Christianity
    this is something I keep wrestling with, and the point I get stuck on is how many other pantheons actually reflect significant religious diversity, United by shared mythic narratives. I mean just look at the Deva!

    Thankfully in my case I think I’ve found a workable Virtue pair that are interpreted differently by the different Abrahamic religions but still overlap.

      Could you spell it and give us list of pairs - and why they work for all Great Three Abrahamic?

        Perhaps we could do something on the Canaanite and Arabian pantheons and the Abrahamic factions that took them over. Perhaps even deal with those that still resent the forced merger.

          I’ll be posting a first section soon. Unfortunately it won’t be super useful for PCs for Hero-Demigod level play until Saints and Monsters comes out and we get higher power Saint rules. I will eventually have Nephilim rules in there too for forbidden-Scion play.
