    Or could you be sired by one mantle but have your visitation be in the form of another? Like a child of Mars meeting Ares at their visitation or vice versa

    • How easy would it be to have a diverse party of scions all with the same divine parentage?

        You are a little constrained by your parent (and pantheon, via Pantheon Purview), but I think there's still plenty of space for variety:

        If you're play a Scion, your first dot is always, "Scion of X, God of Y," which allows you to adopt a lesser set of powers of your parent's most famous mantle. While parentage is clear and may even trace back generations through the Legend system, Scions needn't (and, in fact, it's hard for them) be clones of their parents.
        You inherit lots of things from your divine parent, but it's more of a starting bonus, not something that channels or defines your character advancement.
        A Hero-level character gets three - Origin (related to Genesis), Role, and Pantheon (your relationship with parent and pantheon). Callings are chosen to match these three Paths, and at least one of them must be the same as your divine parent's. (You also get to channel one Purview of your parent for free, no strings attached, no relic needed, but you only get to pick one)

        • Weird Question: would sort of Non-emotions like Apathy and Boredom be valid under Passion? as well, is it possible for someone to "branch out" with a subtyped Perveiw? like for instance Beast (Penguins) to Beast (all)

            Neall mentioned Athena possible having Passion(clear thought and reason), so Apathy and Boredom would probably work.

            Branching out may just be retraining (same as Beast(Penguin)-->Moon), although a little easier since you could probably repurpose the same Relic (or parental pass)

                  There's a mini update on the KS page that says Neall hopes to have it up either this week or the next.

                      ​So it was. Yeah, so it's clearly running a bit late.

                        That must have been some intense Con Plague Neall caught.

                          I think we can forgive some tardiness with how close the books are to the editing phase.

                            Yes, you can.
