  • There is an entire Purview dedicated to Artistry, so I don't think the Gods are lacking powers in that department....

  • I apologize if I offended... That was not my intention... But I thought one of the biggest differences this edition was that Titans aren't all evil and automatically bad guys, just deity level beings who are immersed in their Purviews....

  • Honestly, and I'm no Abrahamic expert so I may be reading this all wrong, but I always liked the idea that God is a Primordial, the Angels, beings absolutely dedicated to upholding their part and duty in creation's Order on the Will of God, were Titans of Order plus whatever Purview they need to be to do the Lord's work at the time, and Demons 'fell' so to speak, by becoming Gods and tying themselves to the foibles and vices of humanity....

  • Whether Sikhism is monotheistic or monistic or panentheistic depends, much like Hinduism, on who you're asking really. Also, I've had a lot of contact with a number of Sikhs in my life, but I am most definitely not an expert, so take all this with a grain of salt and if anyone with greater knowledge feels I'm mistaken in any of this then please feel free to correct me

    In any case, Sikhism is a religious tradition founded on the teachings of ten individual Gurus, and I see no reason why any of that history would be affected by the World... it helps that Sikhism originated in India...

  • I am so sorry... I'm have no idea why my brain went through that entire passage reading it as Bharti . My mistake... great job on it though, I enjoyed reading it thoroughly ...

  • EDIT : My mistake, sorry people. Great job on the Commonwealth write-up and I'm looking forward to the rules for Quantakinetics.

  • I generally agree with this assessment... it reminds me of Samirah al-Abbas, Scion of Loki and also devout Muslim in Rick Riordan's Magnus Chase series who had no problems working for the Aesir while staying true to her religion. Also, while we don't actually know anything about her yet (so she may not actually be Muslim), the signature Scion of Oya Iyansan is Omolara Muhammed. And the Orisha seem perfectly willing to agree that they are not Gods, just creations of the One True God....

    I'm pretty certain he meant Gaia as an example and not an exhaustive list. Most of the Protogenoi, Nyx included, are Primordials by my reckoning (though I'm sure individual gaming tables will have slightly differing views as to which exact figure falls into which category). We've also been told that the status of a particular deity is not fixed... it is entirely possible for a Primordial to become a God (likely what happened to Ra) or vice versa (confirmed as to what happened to Brahma), and I'm sure God-Titan and Primordial-Titan conversion is also possible....

    One way to look at it is through their interactions with the World... Gods primarily look upon and interact with the World through the lens of their Callings, Titans primarily look upon and interact with the World through their Purviews, and Primordials rarely if ever interact with the World at all.

    Agni is just as much an embodiment of Fire as Surtr is, but When Agni walks within the World, he is the Flame of Knowledge, the Warding Fires and the Sacrificial Conduit. When Surtr looks upon the World, he sees a nice bunch of kindling. The Primordial Svarog, doesn't do much interacting...

    replied to Path Contacts
    To add further confusion, the opening section on Paths on Page 110 states "Once per session, a Path can call upon a connection (a group of associates on similar Paths), or a contact (someone specific related to your Path)."

    I guess Daikoku isn't around since he's being treated as a Mantle of Shiva? Though I find it a little weird that he's not included but Benten and Kisshoten who are also arguably Mantles of Deva are included.

    Patron Gods no longer give XP discounts, as far as I am aware... the only benefit to your Deity's list of Purviews is that you have the option of channeling any single one of them for free. So while Scions of Frigg have a smaller platter of powers to choose from, they're not really getting any less of a bang for their buck than a Scion of Shiva ...

    He has it because of his most famous Avatar, Hanuman I am admittedly a Shakta, not a Shaivite, but given how popular a deity Hanuman is, and how closely connected he is to that Animal, it made sense.

    Same reason Vishnu has Artistry(flute playing) even though Vishnu does not pay the flute, Krishna does....

  • Well Brahma and Xi Wang Mu of the Shen both also seem to have Callings and Purviews assigned to them in the Appendix, so either their exact Status is fluctuating or they still have Scions through one means or another whilst still being Primordials....

    Page 26, the "Land of Chains" section, second paragraph, second sentence : "They almost possess powerful, implacable, and incorruptible guards." Should probably be "They almost all possess powerful, implacable, and incorruptible guards." Or "They almost always possess powerful, implacable, and incorruptible guards."

    I'm pretty certain those two are either errors or have something especially weird going on, cuz as far as I am aware each God is supposed to have only Three Callings. As for Morrigan having Sage, I'm no Tuatha expert but doesn't she have associations with Prophecy? Sage has Prophetic powers, I think, so she may have it for that. I also found her lack of Warrior weird, but this is a question for Watcher : Does the Morrigan ever actually fight or she an example of a War Goddess who's not a Warrior Goddess?...

    Might be just a side-effect of the actual mythology... are there any major Hunter figures in Tuatha myth that could serve as a patron? It might also simply be that they couldn't fit in every possible God with every Calling in the core book... Idun would probably be the Aesir Healer (or at least an Aesir with the Healer Calling), she's just not written up right now....

    As a separate point, Freyja seems to have Four Callings and Shiva has Epic Strength listed twice.

    Point... would you allow them to change when they Ascend to higher tiers? Not that it technically matters since as I've noted elsewhere Astras don't have to be invoked through bows, and there's no reason they can't be invoked through bullets as easily as arrows....

    The Deva seem to have Firearms as an Asset Skill instead of Athletics.

    I even went and checked the skill descriptions to make sure Athletics is still the bow-shooting and thrown weapons skill.
