  • It was insensitive to Christians too, but speaking as one I still thought it was a decent what-if and very much in line with Aquinas' ideas on why the Greek works were worth studying by people who didn't share the faith. It chapped me briefly, but I realized the problem was in my reaction not being very Grace-filled (like, same day realization). (Put another way, something can be insensitive without being offensive if the audience is willing to listen.)

    So... keep being conflicted, in the best possible way I guess? ...

    Drendari wasn't born from a mortal... but don't tell Enkili, he totally thinks that woman was a siren. It was Belsameth. (Divine & Defeated, pg. 95.) She snookered him. There are no known demigods who were born of a mortal.

    Going off the pattern you see in Divine & Defeated, the Player's Guide to Clerics, Lost Tribes, and Blood Bayou (which doesn't make it canon, just a pattern): Titan + Titan = God. God + (Titan / Demon Prince / God) = Demigod. Titan + MURDERING PSYCLUS = Erias and 5 Others We Shouldn't Talk About...

    The Pathfinder version of the new PG has a...

    So if you have Termana hardcover, check out the sidebars talking about the Ushada. Then take a look at the Seraphic Engine in Lost Tribes of the Scarred Lands. You can slowly piece together a working theory for why there's so much thematic overlap between the Titans. (Because it's possible that "Titans" are just really, really powerful Ushada, and Ushada are just expressions of the land and nothing says they have to be unique.) More than that, the Titans may be the result of some terrible dabbling/feasting on things they really shouldn't have with the Nameless Orb and Psyclus the Sundered...

  • So... there's not really a disconnect between the two beyond presentation. While at first, in 3rd, the Drendali seemed pretty darn evil, looking past the presentation into the "why do they behave like this?" it was clear that it was a tragic story of betrayal driving Naalthalos to behave like a villain in an all-consuming desire for revenge that began to be reflected among his people (as the god's spirit reflects in its people).

    5th and the Pathfinder version rather decided to deal less with the presentation layer of the drendali and got more to the heart of it, which is,...

    The PG's were the best for that sort of theory-crafting. There seemed to be a low-key theme of "arcane magic is the natural magic of the world" through Mesos. But that theory had its flaws, which was nice of the writers, and gave us a whole host of other magical theories.

    Contrasted with the Slarecians where their powers were utterly alien and did not belong.

  • Just got my printed version. It's quite nice! Good quality from the printer, no bleed, no miscuts. Good binding. Looks fantastic.

  • I think the charms were superior in Glories, but I had the opposite reaction to the Incarna. I thought it was a horrible diminishing of their character and, in many ways, took them from multi-faceted myths down to near caricatures. Especially with the Unconquered Sun. His stats were not particularly fun, the errata'd version of him even less so, and the way they handled his background was such a hollowing out of his persona that I couldn't help but feel it was the culmination of everything I hated about very late 2nd edition.

    Of course, I actually still like Glories. It's Masters...

    Hmm... can someone post more Pathfinder content to the Slarecian Vault or is that verboten now?

    I have my Creature Collection on order (so now I have the PDF too; hence my question in the other thread about the Unhallowed and the Expulsed from the Wise and the Wicked).
