    If they did die before, they could be Incarnating over again, and that was one of those times - both dying in Fate’s cycle before they achieved divine levels of Legend....

    I agree, but there’s a thousand year history of people missing that point, so it’s worth making explicit....

    replied to Scion Developer Interview Questions
    Since all the Pantheons need to be expanded with each power upgrade (at very least for their Pantheon Specific Purviews), are there plans for handling that for the Demigod and God upgrades for the Yazata and Nemetondevos, or the God upgrades for the Pantheons to be introduced in the Demigod book?

    Any word on when the community content platform on Drivethrurpg will go live?

    Will it be possible for Incarnate Scions of living deities to exist? This seems to be how the Deva largely operate, though they reabsorb the new Mantle when it achieves Godhood. On the other hand,...

    At what point are we likely to start seeing settings other than the World? Will it not be until after Demigod and God have both come out?

    Can you tell us anything about a few of the other settings you have planned?

  • That’s the premise i’m largely working off of with my Mal’akhim Pantheon. The underlying logic of their commandment against conceiving born Scions, is that Chosen Scions have been carefully screened, but Born Scions can potentially claim their powers as their birthright regardless of who they are as a person. In addition, that type of connection with a mortal lover and/or children is seen as potentially corrosive to an Angel’s loyalties and priorities....

    If you do do Sodom and Gamorah, i’d just make sure to stress what what they were targeted for destruction for, because there’s a lot of cultural baggage and assumptions that comes with that otherwise.

    If you’re treating the Bible as right, and they had it coming - i’d stress the xenophobia and rape in the Genesis narrative, as well as what we’re told via Ezekiel “Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I...

    I’m really glad (since i’ve decided to do something different and go with dueling angelic and demonic Pantheons for my own fan project) that someone else made something so cool out of my off hand “what if the Angels were Titans, and the Demons are Gods who lost their Titanomachy?” pitch!

    So you’re going with the death of Baldr as something that’s already happened, rather than a prophesy hanging over the Aesir (which I think is the canon default position)?

  • I’d just treat him a low rank demon. Possibly a viable Guide - especially for “Chosen” (I.e. Soul-Pact) Scions.

    That should be one of the big things this Pantheon is known for by the way. They are uniquely extra willing make applicants into Scions! That’s gotta be a big draw in the World where i’m sure plenty of mundane mortals feel lesser-then with divine heroes around them.

    All it costs is eternal damnation.


    As to being literary - honestly tragic promethean Lucifer is a literary invention of Milton (one that got away from him as he intended...

  • My thought is there’s no point in making them Titans if they’re just going to be treated like gods anyway. So i’d leave the possibility of them having Scions open, but only expand on the details when we have more actual mechanics for how Titans and their playable progeny work.

    Of course they have their important commandment against having any born Scions (in fact, the fact that Titan Scion are supposed to come out inhuman, could work with what you’re doing with Nephilim!)...

  • What are the dominant purviews controlling those Archangels? I’m assuming Azrael is Death, Metatron is Order, and Raphael is Health...

    Titans don’t have the same Callings as Gods. Unfortunately we don’t know what list they will have instead yet.

    As of last we saw, the Titan blurbs in the Hero book just provide their Virtues and each’s dominant Purview. I’d just stick to that until more information is published and they can be expanded then.

    The Celestial Bureaucaxy expects Yama to obey Chinese law, but he isn’t only a god of the Shen. A devout Buddhist himself, he plans on filing as many Tibetan Buddhist souls, and even Chinese Buddhist souls as possible under the purview of the Palas and not the Celestial Bureaucracy to get around that measure for the time being....

    Rather than living in exile in India, the Dalai Lama and the unrecognized Tibetan government are holed up in the Terra Incognita of Shamballah. With the obvious help of the Palas, His Holiness is able to bypass the Chinese military moving to and from Shamballah.

    For their part, the Chinese government works very hard to keeps its registered Scions our of Tibet. It is well aware that the only reason the Palas and Lha limit themselves to passive protection rather than directly acting against Chinese colonization is because it’s purely a mortal effort and doing so would violate a...

    Gerald Gardner did found a new religious movement that claims a reconstruction heritage, but Wicca does not claim to have been a continuously practiced secret tradition in the World. Rather it asserts to be a rediscovery if the true nature of all Gods as being a reflection of underlying Divine archetypes that cross all cultural boundaries and Wiccans freely worship across Pantheon lines accordingly.

    Wicca in the World is about as mainstream as Unitarian Universalism in reality.

    Sure, and they do recruit Scions for that. But a single international organization that the US, China, Israel, Iran, India, and Pakistan all recognize the authority of and knowingly let operate in their national borders strains my suspension of disbelief far more than dragons do.

    Maybe something like a UN reinforcement team that can be invited in when there’s a problem to big for local Scions to handle if the country is desperate

    Not to say there aren’t globe trotting do-gooder scions, or international societies dedicated to maintaining order. Just that I don’t...

    For my table:

    There are national champions that work for their governments, and bands under the auspices of international organizations like NATO exist. But a truly global international police force is not something the various governments are willing to give up their sovereignty to the necessary degree to sign on to. If there’s a society of Order-associated Scions protecting civilization and the global balance of power, its doing it from the shadows without answering to governmental authorities.

  • While i’m all in favor of more cooperative charms for DBs, I think giving the Realm access to Celestial Circle Sorcery outside the singular person of the Empress (and she’s gone!)would have too great setting ramifications to introduce via a Charm like that....

  • Those would be the big 4 included on almost every "Archangel" list (Michael and Gabriel 100% of the time as they get namechecked in canonical scripture). There are in theory supposed to be seven Archangels, but no one agrees on the other three. Several occult traditions just focus on those four and associate them with the 4 directions and the 4 elements (though again, no one agrees on which are which)....

  • I'm leaning toward him being a Mantle of the First Angel that remained faithful to God, even in being cast down, and after 40,000 years (in mythic time) quenched fires of hell with his tears and Incarnated as the Sufi mystic Sheikh Adi, who ascended as the redeemed angel Melek Taus. While he and Lucifer both originate as Mantles of that "First Angel", he was never "the Devil" and he and Lucifer have nothing to do with each other now, save that Melek reflects some degree of what Lucifer once was.
