    Cool. I'm still hoping for some southwestern and Inuit material, as well as Mayan, Zulu, and Australian.

    It is, along with the Annuna, the Bogovi, the Apu, and the Atua.

    (those being Mesopotamian, Slavic Russian, Inca, and the confederation of Polynesian pantheons)

    Unfortunately, the JSR site has been done since 2015 or so, when the authors stopped working on Scion first edition to write their own game. It still hasn't come out, and they don't do Scion any more, so we have all we're going to get.

    Not to my knowledge. I hope he'll do some PDFs so each pantheon can get its just due of coverage. A good bibliography of sources on each pantheon would be desirable too!

    I hope we get enough supplements for even half those. I also hope that we get some books like SCION: RAGNAROK. In the less well known cultures it will be vital for most folks to play those pantheons. Heck! We need books like that for all ten pantheons in the 1st ed.

    Fair enough. To be honest, they're not a pantheon I'm super familiar with; most of my knowledge of them stems from Demonchilde's 1e write-up of a few of them. And while Demonchilde's work is interesting, it's not super reliable, accuracy wise. I'm inclined to just refer to them as the Xucar until someone stumbles upon a proper plural. They're cool though; I think they're the best pantheon for the Caucasus, better than the Armenian for our purposes because they have a huge amount of overlap with the Yazatas.

    I'm still not convinced on the name "Narts". While the heroes the term refers to were divine in nature (they were Scions) the term as far as I can find does not seem to encompass the full blown divinities like Uastyrdzhi, Satana, Donbettyr, etc. It would be like calling the whole Indian pantheon "Pandavas" instead of "Devas".

    If I could figure out the proper spelling of the plural of the Lezgin word "xucar", I'd use that as the general name of the Pantheon.

    I am interested to see how the Loa and Orisha handle the doubling of the bulk of their deities, because that can be a guide on how to handle the huge overlap between the deities with culturally distinct Mantles between the Maori and Hawaiian Pantheons, or whether it would be better to handle the huge overlap in more of a Greco-Roman model of just doing the one Pantheon with multiple Mantles on the Gods (as in this case the gods are linguistically even closer related than most of the Greek and Roman equivalents).

    Do the Hawaiian pantheon, the WWII setting already introduced them, but introduce important non Hawaiian deities as associates and allow them to be played as if they were of the same pantheon.

    I would like Hawaiian out of our polynesian pantheons if we need to get one. Kane, Ku, Lono, and Kanaloa are the 4 big gods (Like Zeus, Posiedon and Hades) being the gods of jungles, war, peace and oceans with kane doubling as a creator god, and, despite not being the most powerful or most... nice, she does have quite possibly the most myths about her, it's PELE! She is an extremely temperamental volcano goddess who tends to act a bit rash... she makes the theoi look like the most kind and forgiving pantheon, though she generally does feel bad about it in the end. She razed her sisters house down because she thought she stole the man she wanted, fought then married the god of boars, and decided to fight the goddess of snow because she was a better sledder. She lost the fight with the snow goddess, and lost the northern end of hawai'i to her.

    Ok, I'm convinced, I'll add the Plant Don to the list as a separate Pantheon rather than a sibling one with the same PSP. So that's 29 total that I have a good conceptual grasp on (not counting the Loa, Di Indigetes, Alihah, Nemetondevos, and Shiunesh).
