    Iron Druid is the series that got me into the whole "all pantheons are real in modern times" concept to begin with.

    Suggestion Wanted For Kami Scion

    I was toying around with the idea of creating a Kami scion NPC in the form of a wealthy collector of Tsukumogami, who had a huge number of them which they could utilize as minions for combat and various other purposes, Pokemon master-style. I'm not sure which Kami would be an appropriate parent/patron for such a character though. Any suggestions?

    Fair enough. I wasn't trying to insinuate that what was popular in American culture was that way for the rest of the world, just speaking from my own experiences in that regard. The Orishas are largely unknown in the US, unless you go looking for them specifically. They're still the second easiest African pantheon to research overall though after the Netjer, not that there's much competition. The Theoi, on the other hand, are more or less universal. You'd have to be a pretty poor or disadvantaged student not to be able to recognize all the major Theoi after middle school English class in the US...

    I was mostly referring to the places where I live. The Devas are a weird case because (and I should specify American) pop culture doesn't seem to do as much with them as I would think it would due to them being such a prevalent and widespread religion. Before I got serious about researching mythology, I could name maybe Vishnu, Kali, Ganesha, and a couple of characters from the Ramayana. I had to research Hindu mythology specifically and kind of go out of my way for it to gain even an elementary understanding of the mythos. It didn't come to me through pop culture osmosis the way the Greek,...

    I would like to note that just because a god or pantheon has fallen into obscurity in the real world doesn't mean that they have in the setting of the game. In the real world, there are only really three pantheons which seem to have permeated modern pop culture to any significant degree, specifically the Theoi, Aesir, and Netjer. The rest of the starting ten, minus the Orisha and Manitou, all have a handful of members which I would say are quite recognizable amongst the general public, but very little seems to really be understood about them, and the rest of the pantheons have reached increasing...

    replied to Scion: Dragon in the works
    I fundamentally agree about the term "Dragon" not being applicable to many of the mythical creatures that are labeled with it. Hell, even European Dragons and Lungs, the two most commonly accepted forms of "Dragon" have next to nothing in common besides being reptilian, and in the case of Lungs, only vaguely even that.

    That being said, and I'm honestly playing the devil's advocate here, perhaps the word "Dragon" is being used in the same manner as the word "Titan." "Titan," in mythology, is a Greek word with a very specific definition,...

    Yes. Information about them as a culture seems to be fairly scarce, unfortunately. They are also called "Aonikenk" though I'm not sure which name is correct.

    In that regard, I'm rather intrigued by the mythology of the Tehuelche. I know very little about the actual deities of the mythos, but there is a trio of presumed titans, Axshem, Kelenken, and Maip, who are exceedingly cool that I have heard of. I know the ​"Folk Literature of the South American Indians" covers the Tehuelche, but I haven't had much of a chance to research them in detail. Still, just based on their Titans alone, I'd love to see them in the game.

    Sacerdos, do you by any chance have a working name for the Miwok pantheon? I'm trying to find one, but not locating much.

    I'm familiar with the Selknam, and I know a little about their mythology (Xalpan and co. are pretty cool, from what I can find about them), so they would have been my next choice as well. It's such a shame South America has so little of its mythologies recorded.

    Sounds like a mess. Just out of curiosities sake, which other South American pantheons, besides the Inca, Guarani, Mapuche, and Muisca, would you say are definite options?

    It was Wikipedia, so I assumed there were inaccuracies to one degree or another. What are the major inaccuracies with it specifically, however?
