    Very interesting. The divine write-ups for Confucius (Kongzi) and Laozi were based on the fact that both of them are revered as gods by at least some Chinese, with especially Confucius limited to unorthodox popular cults. I hadn't heard about worship of Zhuangzi before, though. Is he considered a shen or xian by some? Or did you just write him up as more of an experiment?

    Also, not to nag, but I'm pretty sure half the Purviews you give him don't exist in the game, no matter the version ...

    Currently, the main god roster is Yucahú, Attabeira, Guabancex, and Deminán Caracaracol, but don't take my word for it just yet. The Zemí are an incredible mess, I have considered scrapping them entirely at least five times since I'm started, and I'm still not quite sure what to do with them. They are about as fragmentarily attested as the Gauls....

    There definitely aren't eight more for the Abosom. We did a fair bit of research on them, and apart from those four, everyone else is just so incredibly local and minor that we couldn't flesh them out at all. A minimum of twelve is very unwieldy for the majority of the world's pantheons, I think, since most pre-modern cultures show only a very small, hard core of important deities with a huge number of localised cults. Of the pantheons we're currently working on, we're seeing 7 major gods for the Manchu pantheon, 10 for the Hittites, 4 for the Taíno, 8 for the Haida, and, as mentioned, 4 for...

    Oh man, I see you've run afoul of the problematic history of Western academia again. I get you, believe me. First of all, I need to say, while Subaltern Studies are a brilliant direction to go in when studying the world and its history, I really wouldn't call anthropology a waste of time. It is a difficult and problematic field for sure, and one I myself have despaired over in the past, but it definitely can be helpful no matter where you're coming from with your interests. It's greatest worth, I think, lies in its production of ethnographies through vistitation, through the complete immersion...
