    Ares for all his other faults did mourn his son's death in the Trojan war and killed a son of Poseidon after he raped his daughter, going so far as making that spot the Areopagus.

    Also, for all the shit going on with his sons, Zeus seems to treat his daughters relatively quite well (minus the whole helped Hades kidnap Persephone against her will depending on the version of the myth you're going with thing).

      When you think about it,Zeus would probably want his children to like him,since then they wouldn't want to overthrow him

        ​That would be the logical way of it, but he's not exactly nice to them. I think he once called Ares "the least of [Zeus's] sons" to his face. Logic is nothing before the ultimate divine ego.

        ​Unrelated, but if you're an exceptionally skilled, highly-trained mortal with no particular heritage, what are your options for moving up in the world? Are you doomed to insignificance, or are there ways to rise above?

          • When do you think we'll see another update? I'm still curious about that Netjer rewrite we were told to watch out for.


            Just call me Lex.

            Female pronouns for me, please.

              Become a sorcerer. If Baba Yaga can gain power rivalling the gods, so can you.

                    Netjer need a little more fine-tuning. I should have the update ready to go by the end of the weekend, but it won't be the Netjer - we'll be talking about Deeds and showing off some characters and builds.

                      I'm not sure Baba Yaga was ever really Mortal...

                      But yah Doaist Immortals, and Buddhist Arhats rose up from the bottom to the top.


                      It is a time for great deeds!

                        Here's what we were last told about mortal options, keeping in mind they're subject to change.

                        Sorcerers range in capability from Rincewind to Baba Yaga; Neall hopes he can let sorcerers scale.
                        Saints sort of ignore scaling. (Neall's noted they have an odd relationship with gods - Vishnu once got taken out by a rsi, for example.)
                        Oracles & prophets can do things gods technically can't.

                          Technically every single major Hindu God has had his clock cleaned by a Rishi or Rishika at some point... it's practically a rite of passage. I always thought it was a culturally Hindu thing, so I'm honestly curious... does that sort of thing happen in other mythologies as well?

                            Gods getting beaten by fully mortal people? Oh yes.

                            Diomedes somehow managed to wound Ares in battle.

                            Sisyphus was somehow able to capture Thanatos and hold him captive, thus preventing Death from happening anywhere in Greece.

                            The Irish myth cycle ends with a bunch of mortals pretty much slaughtering the entire Tuatha de Dannan.

                              The question is,will scion gives mechanics for that?
