    What is tolerance? It is the consequence of humanity. We are all formed of frailty and error; let us pardon reciprocally each other's folly. That is the first law of nature.

      I like to think at least one god per pantheon became the official or unofficial IT deity person amongs that pantheon.
      It's my take also. We can have multiple IT deities, one, two per Panteon like we have gods of thieves, fire, or any other Preview.

      • Fair enough: Hermes can be the other Theos of the Internet. :P

        • So how would 'Gods of Internet' from each Pantheon would look like?

          Aesir - Heimdall?
          Theoi - Hermes
          Netjar - Isis

          Other propositions?

          • Theoi - Iris. As I said before, she's at least as qualified for the role as Hermes is.
            Devas - Sarasvati, Goddess of Arts and Letters.
            Kami - Tsukiyomi: he's big on travel and gossip.

              Okay, this right here? Bad way to look at it. Some may claim they have influence over the Internet as means to an end, but that's like asking which God claims speaking as their sole thing.

              Each God would find their niche with the Internet as the medium and draw the lines in that.

              Sarasvati, the Muses, Thoth/Djhuety, other Patrons of Arts and Written Word would claim the written stuff on the internet.

              Loki and Tezcatlipoca would take great delight in trolling subcultures.

              Online dating and matchmaking sites? There are canonically in Scion several Gods that bless them.

              The internet is not a singular unified thing.It is wide, expansive, varied, and kinda scary in places. No one God could claim full ownership of the whole damn thing without a lot of asterisks.


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

              • Move whole discussion on 'Old Gods with Modern Purviews' to new topic, as it's interesting subject, but off-topic to this one.
