  • Tame deer run all over the place in his shrines at both Kasuga and Kashima. That is because a deer was the creature sent to fetch Takemikazuchi when the Amatsukami had need of him, and was the creature he rode from Kashima to Kasuga on when he wanted to found that new shrine. Thus deer also feature heavily in his sacral art....

    Seeing as China has over the centuries expanded way beyond the area originally inhabitated by the ethnic Han Chinese, it contains more peoples and pantheons than I can possibly enumerate, including parts of Mongolian territory, other Tungusic ethnicities besides the Manchu, Tibet with both its Buddhist and Bön Pantheons, various Turkic peoples, the Tanguts, and the whole array of the South China minorites, among which the Miao might be the most prominent. I'm probably forgetting a lot here; China is huge.
    I'm aware of the Kamuy, but that's pretty much it. They haven't stricken any particular...

    Hah, I was just messaging Watcher about that. We've wanted to get the first one out since before Easter, but Iry has caught a lot of balancing issues in the PSP at the last minute. He is still busily working on that, and as a non-mathematically inclined person, I really can't estimate how long that will take him (scratch that, I don't even really understand what he's doing there; math stuff, it seems). But believe me, I want our work out at least as much as you, and I promise they'll be published as soon as possible.
    The ones that just need Iry's adjusting now are the Shiunesh (Hittite)...

    As those pantheons are not even out yet, we don't discuss what to do about them. Like I've said before, our priority is to not interfere with the commercial publication of Scion 2E and to not end up offering any kind of free alternative to it. We of course have our own ideas about certain pantheons, but what exactly we can and want to do depends on to many 'if's right now to make any statement. Until then, you'll have to wait for and then hopefully enjoy our more obscure little gems ...

    That is the question, isn't it? That depends on how liberally you work with the given sources, and on what you personally define as a Titan. The ones we're using are Yayael (Yucahú's rebellios son, now dead) and Anacacuya (the first human chief, now dead and turned into an evil constellation). Other candidates would be the hurricane lady Guabancex (if you're not using her as a Goddess) and the Sun, whom I would have loved to write up, but couldn't get a clear enough picture of from the sources, let alone a name in the Taíno language....

    In the write-up we're working on, Bayamanaco is a Primordial, as he seems to exist from the beginning of time, makes up a foundational element of the Taíno cosmos (being the originator of herbal medicine), and is distant and not worshipped....

    ǀKaggen is the more correct form, noted down by a proper linguist. Cagn is basically write-it-as-you-hear-it, courtesy of a certain colonial official. As they were noted among different tribes, though, they are often used parallelly. 'Kaang, meanwhile, is a sky god recorded by a French missionary, which may or may not be related to ǀKaggen.

    Regarding the Mbuti, I've been searching for ages for anything substantial on them, and still haven't found it. Sorry....

    I know very little about Andine cultures in general, but I think to go from "only deity of a pantheon attested by name" to "anti-god who killed all others" is quite the leap. But then again, paying more attention to the historical shifts in the World than to any speculative events among the gods is very much my personal approach and not an objective necessity. What I would look more closely at, though, is the question of how exactly Ai Apaec has come to be the only attested Moche god.

    A quick look at some titles on Google Books gives me this picture of the situation:...

    He's pretty much all we know about the religion and pantheon of the pre-Inca Moche culture (Andine, not Amazonian). There's lots of good literature about the Moche (especially about their erotic pottery figures), I'd look into that for some info....
