    Wannabe Demon Lord posted a Visitor Message for Watcher
    Hello Watcher!

    A blog that I frequent about mythological monsters just posted a very interesting entry on an Irish monster called Cathach. https://abookofcreatures.com/2019/11/15/cathach/ Cathach herself is a very cool beast, but the article also mentions several other creatures that were supposedly present in Ireland during the story, namely Cathach's siblings Dabran and Farbagh, the "gatekeeper of Hell," the "all-devouring sow," and the "red demon of West Ireland." I was wondering if you were familiar with any of these creatures, and if so, what...

  • Fake/Overstated/Misunderstood Deities and Recent Apotheosis

    What do you guys think about the idea of gods who either didn't really exist historically or whose importance was greatly overstated in pop-culture being Scions of their respective pantheons who ascended after their pantheon's heyday? For instance, "Radegast" being a modern Bogovi Scion who ascended to godhood relatively recently, or Brighid being an incarnate Scion of the exceedingly minor wife of Bres who greatly outdid all of her previous incarnates in importance and prevalence? Perhaps Ah Puch was a Scion of Yum Cimil who recently ascended and now serves as a rival of his patron/father,...

    Edit: I think what I was saying here deserves its own thread. I've trailed away to much from the original topic.

    I too love inter-pantheon political interactions and find them quite interesting. Whenever one of your pantheons comes out the section detailing their relationships to other pantheons is usually one of the first bits that I read. I wonder, if the Yazatas and the Enduri did form an alliance, whether Angra Mainyu and Yeluri would also form a temporary alliance against them both. Such an alliance probably wouldn't last very long, pure evil beings tend not to like each other any more than they like anyone else, but it could be an interesting plot point to explore nonetheless.

    It occurs to me that Erlik and Yeluri both come from cultures that had a lot of interaction and were located close to one another. From what I know about Bon mythology (which is honestly not a lot) Tibet seems to have a lot of straight-up malicious demonic entities as well. I wonder if pure evil was a prominent concept in general in Central Asia....

    Thanks, Sacerdos. I suspected something was up with him, given that I get suspicious whenever I see a straight-up evil overlord in mythology, particularly one tied with some kind of hell. They do exist (looking at you, Erlik Khan) but so often they seem to come from the desire to pick a Satan-figure for every pantheon, even when it comes down to trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. I wonder why such an obscure figure was chosen by Marvel though. You'd think someone like Emma-O or Izanami would make more sense from that perspective (not that either of them are truly Satan analogs in...

    Oh wow. It looks like he is a very nasty Titan then if this source is to be believed. Cool!

    started a topic Mikaboshi

    Mikaboshi

    Does anyone know where I can find a clear and accurate depiction of Mikaboshi? I'm having a very hard to finding anything about him, even whether or not he's actually an evil entity or if the connection between darkness and villainy is just Christian projection. I don't necessarily trust 1E's depiction of him to be accurate, as a lot of the so-called Titans were vilified in 1E. Thanks!

    This is absolutely excellent. I think this might be the most purely benevolent pantheon in the game.
