    NGL, I was more interesting in Masks of the Mythos (I have a Lovecraft-lite pantheon in my homebrew fantasy game that I wanted more ideas for), but this podcast certainly got my interest in Dragon up.

      "Sounds rough, buddy. Anyway, check out how well my crops are growing! Thor must me fucking stoked woth me, you have NO idea."
      The Pathcast mentions you can get one or both of the books in the KS.

                Leviathan is from Judaism. Does this mean Dragon is drawing on monotheist religions? Or is he/it supposed to be the Canaanite Lotan?

                  I thought Leviathan was made up by the philosopher Thomas Hobbes. “Nasty, brutish and short...”

                    I think the Dragons represented in the book are meant to stand without ties to any deities. What I mean by that is they don't rely on 'their place' within mythology. That would play into the theme of being a third player between 'gods vs titans' conflict; they aren't tied to pantheons through shared fate but history and geography.
                    Heck, if Dragon is meant to be used without Hero (just Origin), then there is a shot they don't even Legend!

                    So the Leviathan might have ties to the Abrahamic faiths, or someone could have tried to created one with the story we know. It might be Lotan, or that could be someone else.

                      Leviathan is a mythological creature that Thomas Hobbes adopted as a metaphor for state and government.

                      Nasty brutish and short is how he described life without a state or government.

                        I think in the Dragon podcast it was mentioned that Heirs have their Inheritance, and I think it's a representation of how much the Heir is buying into the baggage of their inherited memories, and the more you dive in the more Dragon you become.

                              Oof, $150 with shipping for both books to Ireland. But how could I resist! Dragons! And maybe Scion will be the key to bring me back to the Mythos after years of avoiding it
