    How much more complicated do Canaanite Polytheists make the Israel/Palestinian conflict?

    I'm not sure it works proportionally across the board like that. Since most of the non-continuously worshipped Pantheons are in the West (+ Egypt), I think that's where there are less total Christians and Muslims* than in reality to make room for said religions.

    *The total Jewish population was devastated in reality in the 20th century, I think it's fair that they don't have take the hit in the World....

    I’m pretty comfortable with the notion that the Deva are the strongest theopolitical* Superpower among the pantheons.

    Would Lunars or Sidereals learning second tier necromancy involve a trade off of cutting off second tier Sorcery (like the Dragon of a Different Color trade off)? Or do they get to be as good as Solars at Necromancy while maintaining their normal Sorcery access?...

    He wasn’t an outlier. The other Cyclopes who appear on the island are no smaller than him. But two things to keep in mind; 1) these aren’t the children of Gaea Elder Cyclopes, Who are by definition closer in nature to gods and Titans; and 2) Homer and Hesiod might just have pictured Cyclopes differently....

    Cyclopes being giant in our conception relative to the normally manifest forms associated with the gods is probably thanks to Homer and Polyphemus.

    You’re classifying things together under the label “giants” that as far as I am aware no Greek writers ever classified together. The English word “giants” derives from gigantes. There is no Greek word that was applied to Gigantes, Cyclopes, and Hekatonchire collectively.

    I’m not aware of any Greek myth narrative that has the gods seeing the Cyclopes as traitors because of the actions of the Gigantes. Except for Apollo, who took out his fury over the death of Asclepius on the cyclopes’ for making Zeus’ thunder bolt (because he couldn’t take it out on Zeus), the...

    Surtr maybe since he’s just a force of destruction, but the Jotun end up as dead as the gods do. They don’t win. If anything the surviving/resurrecting handful of gods means the Aesir are in a slightly better position at the end of Ragnarok than the jotun, with a fertile new earth and a new man and woman to begin fresh....

  • How i’ve presented it at my own table, the “Immaculate Dragons” were originally the Shogunate Era term for the Uprising veterans and any DB who died fighting Anthema since. It was promulgated that such a death cleansed one’s soul of all karmic weight (hence “immaculate”), and allowed the dead DB to achieve a divine unity with their respective element & Dragon.

    Since the dead were thus conflated with their respective Elemental Dragons, rhetorical citation began of the “deeds of Mela”, the “deeds of Hesiesh” etc.

    Over the centuries this increasingly...

    I’m not aware of a portrayal of the Gigantes as having fought the Titans with the Gods. Are you possibly conflating them with the Hekatonchire and Elder Cyclopes?

    Gaia herself supported the Gods against the Titans but then was furious with the Titans receiving the same imprisonment she was mad over with the Hekatonchire and Cyclopes so then turned on the Gods with the Gigantes....

    To be fair on the Kronus/Chronos conflation, that does date back to late antiquity, so if Scion 2E ends up embracing it, I’d be fine with that. I certainly see time as being in the mix for Kronus’ domain along with reaping/harvest/fruition. I don’t know which would be primary for him as a Titan, but Fertility, Stars & Death would all definitely be in the mix for the old guy with the scythe (the originating image of “Father Time”).

  • I know trans people and third gender people who do explore that in their spirituality, so it doesn’t bother me that that is included (just as their are some cis Mages who explore cultural gender associations and symbols in their paradigms) - but certainly trans mages whose paradigm has nothing at all to do with their gender should ALSO have prominent representation so that isn’t inherently seen as representative while its existent.

    And yeah, the Wu-Keng needed to go!...

  • Someone remind me, which Houses if any were founded by a child of the Empress and Tepet?

    Also, do we know who V’neef’s father is?

    What’s the significance behind the term “PATRician” in a matriarchal society? Or is this a “they’re not actually speaking English, don’t think about it” situation?

  • The Houses founded by her consorts are still made up largely of the descendants of her and said consort. The Dynasty highly privileged familial descent from the Empress so the other Gens largely married-in centuries ago. At this point, everyone born a Dynast has a bloodlink to the Empress, but that was facilitated by tons of other bloodlines marrying into her lines (note that regardless of gender, a Dynast + Non-Dynast marriage results in the non-Dynast joining the Dynast’s House, name and all)...

    I'm aware of the continuous nature of the respective reality layers, at least in 1E (not clear at all yet that that is the case in 2E). My point was that I interpreted the Underworld as inherently desolate and it being the dying/reborn chthonic gods who brought life to it in pockets like Aaru and Elysium.
