    Gods and Goddesses you have crushes on?

    I really hope this isn't inappropriate. Apologies if it's against a rule. Doubtful, though, since a big part of the game revolves around the offspring of romances with the gods.
    I'm certain I can't be the only person who thinks about this. Which mythical figures do you find attractive?

    For me, I would say Hecate, Bastet, Hel (depending on the depiction), Izanami (same), Oya, Ixchel, Morrigan, Kali, Bai Gu Xing, Sedna, Ishtar, Pele, and Lilith would be the goddesses I'm most interested in.

  • All in all, I love this write-up, it even taught me a few things I didn't know about Egyptian mythology, but I still have a list a mile long of Egyptian gods I'd like to see added in the future.

  • I agree that Wepawet should be separated from Anpu so that he could possibly be included later on.

    Updated the Netjer. I replaced Bat, who's essentially the same as Het-Heru, with the more interesting Shezmu. I also switched over to the proper, original names, or at least the ones I was aware of. I'm pretty certain the rest are the original names regardless but feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

  • Honestly, if paradise or non-existence are the options rather than paradise or eternal suffering, the Egyptian afterlife is the one I'd prefer greatly.

    I've decided, in light of the new Netjer preview and the discussion surrounding it, to update my own Netjer list with the proper, original, Egyptian names rather than the Greek ones. The trouble is, other than the ones in the preview, I'm not really sure which names on here are correct and which ones aren't, and what the correct names would be. Help would be greatly appreciated. Here's the list:
    Ammit
    Amun
    Anubis - Anpu
    Apep
    Ash
    Aten
    Atum
    Babi
    Bastet
    Bat
    Bes
    Geb
    Hapy
    Hathor- Het-Heru
    Heka
    Heqet...

  • It sounds like the Bast in the write-up is essentially the deity I usually think of as Sekhmet, while Bastet is the one I think of as Bast/Bastet.

  • Could someone please explain to me what the distinction between Bast and Bastet is in the original myth? I was almost certain that they were completely interchangeable names for exactly the same goddess, and I'm admittedly a splitter rather than a lumper when it comes to mythological beings. Sekhmet I totally understand the distinction for, though.

    There's a pretty sizable number of evil gods/demons/giant monsters in Japanese mythology that are fairly malevolent and destructive, so I think the Kami would have more reason than the Orisha to be in conflict with certain Titans at least.

    I really enjoyed this preview. I sympathise with the Orishas' position on the Titanomachy, and I like that there's a pantheon that's standing up for the Titans who aren't complete monsters. I'm sure that they're smart enough that they wouldn't let the truly malevolent Titans lay waste to them if it came to that. They certainly have members who could hold their own against them if they had to. I personally like the god/titan divide to be more political than not, and I'm a strong supporter of the idea of having playable scions of Titans.

    Oya remains my personal favorite member of...

  • I am personally an atheist. I believe mythology to be fiction, but nevertheless, it's fascinating fiction. I can appreciate the old gods as interesting characters, cultural icons, and a fascinating view into the nature of humanity. Mythology is a great display of how humankind changes, yet nevertheless, retains certain universal, narrative constants, even between the most varied of cultures. On top of that, it's just cool. From the epic, apocalyptic, battle of Ragnarok to Kali massacring hordes of Raktavija clones by slurping up their blood, mythology has all the tropes and elements I love...
