  • I would look for the stuff Franz Boas wrote on the Kwakiutl, they were pretty much his main research interest. He is the father of modern anthropology, and his methods still hold up, more or less. Yet most of his stuff is so old that you should be able to find it for free online. At least I think so....

  • The real problem here is that we can't follow just "logic" here, deciding to put two cultures together because they have enough overlap, as is obvious for the Greeks and Romans. Here, we are dealing with cultures almost destroyed by colonialism, and no matter what could be gained by making a shared Pantheon from a game perspective, the price of that would be further eroding public awareness of the distinctness of these groups, further contributing to the looming threat of cultural extinction. So for these even more than for other Pantheons, our policy is: No matter how similar two figures...

  • I don't even think it's acceptable to mesh the Manitou and Orenda like that, but that is another story. Questions about the Pacific NW, however, I must refer to Watcher...

  • Everyone loves Zhegulu. She's a starlight hedgehog masquerading as a flower. Like, it's literally impossible to dislike that concept.

    In part, that's me cheating a little bit by emphasising older, written sources over more modern ethnographic accounts, because these days, many of the girls have been replaced by male forms of themselves the way Abka Hehe has. Calling widow burials "being to some degree restricted" is creative, but I agree that one problem is that for the time before the Qing Dynasty, most of our sources on Jurchen culture come from outsiders, so there's bound...

  • New Guinea probably has a bunch of Pantheons, actually, for the reasons I mentioned. Really now, though, I'm almost a bit insulted that we drop a shiny new Pantheon for you guys, and all I get asked about are the ones we haven't done (yet). ...

  • Micronesia definitely has a bunch of pantheons, the islands are far apart and the legends all pretty distinct and bound to local landmarks as far as I can see. They had excellent voyaging technology as well, of course, but their culture doesn't revolve around migration and diaspora as much as the interconnected Pantheons of Polynesia. For Melanesia, I'm not sure, since I'm mainly informed about Fiji, which is variously counted towards either Melanesia or Polynesia, and is thus obviously an absolute melting pot. In general, though, "Melanesia" has several migratory strata of population...

  • They have absolutely no distinction between gods and humans. Even the creator pair, born from original chaos, are technically just humans like everyone else. I look forward to the madness that is implementing this. But they're a good option, that doesn't mean I promise they'll happen. So no spoilers yet, because I also don't really have any.




    Scion, where dreams come true In all seriousness, though, yeah, we're working on them, but there's still a long way to go until they're anything close to finished, and a lot can happen in the meantime. So don't get too...

  • Sure. I think most have figured it out by now Also Watcher is telling me that I misunderstood him and that order is not set in stone yet, because apparently, my desire to have things sorted geographically does not trump things like common sense and practicality, what with the Abosom being practically finished, and the Zemí very much not ^^'...

  • We have agreed on the order Sga'na Qeda's, Zemí, Abosom, !Khweǁna-ssho-!kui. That way, it's always two from one continent after another. Last we've talked, the Taotaomo'na of Guam seemed like our prime choice for the next project. But first we need to finish the !Khweǁna-ssho-!kui (the Zemí are almost finished writing and will soon go into editing, hooray!)....
