    Yes. I can go a bit more in-depth into it - you deal a bit more with cultural impacts. You can also deal more with fights as strategic setpieces rather than "I roll to punch" - it becomes a marshaling of mythic forces rather than individual prowess.

      How does fatebinding work on demigod level?

        More strongly than it does on Hero.

            • What kind of being would Garuda be categorized as in Scion? A demigod?

                i'm a sage calling, i found out that (in some peculiar point of the story) that violence is the only way, can i refuse my calling in change of, for example, the warrior?

                  Since he is described as the vehicle mount of Vishnu, I would say 5dot Creature (legend 8)

                    He is a 5 dot creature who fought multiple legend 12 gods to a standstill. For that matter, Durga's lion has also wiped out sixty thousand titan spawn in moments without breaking a sweat. And depending on the story Shiva's bull Nandi has drunk the same poison that Shiva has to hold in his throat without ill effect. So unless the Creature birthright got a hell of an upgrade there's something else going on with these three at least. Or maybe the Yoga Purview has a God level boon that can bump up your creature to super saiyan levels.

                      Could be creatures grow alongside their masters in 2e. Would make sense. In one 1e some 4 and 5 dot examples seemed perfectly useful and effective at Hero and then worthless at demigod. Growing scale would help with that.

                        I'm hoping that that will be the case... Vahana are such an important part of Hindu myth and iconography and 1e barely even mentioned them, I'm hoping 2e gives us the tools to do them justice

                          No. You're locked into the Callings and the "generic" Scion Knacks, like Scent the Divine.

                            A Creature, as others have noted, capable of whupping up on Gods. As Samudra noted, the Yoga Purview will probably let you beef up your mounts.

                              It's not even that extreme. Failing at a Deed is required to change your Calling, whether that's a failure that calls your archetype into doubt or a purposeful, spectacular failure meant to sunder the bonds of Fate that hold you to the Calling.

                                Yes! Thank you!
