    Which part? That Zoroastrianism and Hinduism don't really have a concept of blasphemy or that 1e managed it regardless ?

    I am the Hindu in question, and the Zoroastrian is the writer for the 2e Yazata, but I doubt that will allay your doubts suffice to say that the 1e Hindu Pantheon unwittingly parroted right wing nationalist propaganda, decided that one of the strongest Goddesses was being forced to act as a brood mare by her husband against her will, portrayed one of the most widely loved Gods as seducing his students behind his wife's back (both individually blasphemous,...

    It's entertainment that's dealing with subjects that are extremely important to large sections of often marginalised people, so even if 100% accuracy is not achievable, respect absolutely should be

    And 1e has the dubious distinction in that members of two separate extremely heterodox religions (Zoroastrianism and Hinduism) which have next to no concept of heresy or blasphemy, read their portrayals in it and went 'yup... That's blasphemy alright'

    Simple... The Pantheons *aren't* United and there is no second Titan War, because there are quite a few Pantheons that are not at large scale war with their Titans (or even acknowledge having them) you can safely ignore that bit of the lore of 2e cuz the rest of the book does... The beginning of the Pantheon chapter in Hero even goes into the details of how the different Pantheons have widely different stances in this issue and aren't United in the least

    Ah, good luck in getting to run/play in one then, assuming you're interested in that aspect of Scion. Either way I hope that answers your question

    Oops, autocorrect changed initial to Indian

    I am saying that the idea of a Unified Titan War, first or second, makes no sense in keeping with actual mythology... If you want to include them, feel free, but at that point since you're ignoring so much of the mythology of the Pantheons you don't really *need* an official reason for a Second War do you? You can just go with the 1e idea that all Pantheons have Antagonistic Titans and that they were sealed off a long time ago and have started getting out now

    Firstly, there's a bunch of ideas in the initial setting chapter that get completely ignored in the rest of the book, and for the best, such as the idea of Primordials having World Bodies (which every single Pantheon thankfully ignores)... I would treat the idea of a 'Second' Titan War much like that... Secondly, the idea of even a first unified Titan War is itself ridiculous given that there are Pantheons that don't even acknowledge a difference between Gods and Titans to begin with... Kind of hard to have a War with things you don't believe exist 😉

    I would ignore the idea of...

    You know you don't have to repeat that your prefer 1e with every post right... We've gathered that by now

    Also, your question assumes that Scions are being newly created now... There's no actual reason to assume this... The Pantheons have *always* been making Scions throughout history, you just happen to be playing one in this current age.

    Assuming you mean the Purview Specialization mechanic... currently no, though the Demigod book is set to contain the Tengri, the Mongolian Gods, who do have wolf-related deities.

    However, in case you're asking for your character a reminder that you can specialize the Beasts Purview (or choose not to specialize at all) as you wish... you are not limited by your Patron, so a Scion of Ganesha need not take Beasts (Elephant)... you can take Beasts (Zebra) or choose to just take Beasts.

    The Deva are correct, just as the Theoi are correct and the Orisha are correct... All Myths Are True in Scion, it's a central conceit of the game... so yes, a day for Brahma Vishnu and Shiva is 4.32 Billion years, meaning a few thousand years is less time than it takes one of them to piss.



    They are fairly chumps compared to the Gods... the Spear of Lugh guarantees Victory against any foe, a single stray Deva Astra can destroy the Universe, God creates eldritch abomination angels on a lark, he can get rid of them just as easily, Huitzilopochtli eats malevolent things...

    The Titanomachy book is already poised to give us rules for Titan Scions, as well as new Callings....

    I'm sure with enough tweaking (which could be no tweaking at all, I don't know how the mechanics work) you could use them together in your games... but setting wise the Mythos 'deities' don't really fit... they're utterly unconcerned with Humanity, which is one of the prime hallmarks of Godhood in base Scion, and are harmful enough to Humanity (deliberately or not) that any Pantheon that even vaguely cares about people (which is pretty much all of them, but especially ones like the Teotl Deva or Orisha) would have wiped them out ages ago....

    Masks of the Mythos is meant to be a Shard... it is set in a version of the World where the other Pantheons do not exist, so it would not be surprising if the basic assumptions of Heroes (if they're even called that) and what they can do are significantly different as well.
