    Yeah, if you're disallowing enlightened mortals/priests, then that kinda gets rid of all Rishis and Rishikas. Though I do agree that Tripitaka had direct divine help from Guan Yin, so it's not exactly the same situation as the Rishis. While we're at it, didn't Diomedes have help from Athena? Or was that only divine sight?...

    Technically every single major Hindu God has had his clock cleaned by a Rishi or Rishika at some point... it's practically a rite of passage. I always thought it was a culturally Hindu thing, so I'm honestly curious... does that sort of thing happen in other mythologies as well?...

    Ares for all his other faults did mourn his son's death in the Trojan war and killed a son of Poseidon after he raped his daughter, going so far as making that spot the Areopagus.

    Also, for all the shit going on with his sons, Zeus seems to treat his daughters relatively quite well (minus the whole helped Hades kidnap Persephone against her will depending on the version of the myth you're going with thing)....

    How restrictive is the Chosen Origin? Can gods choose anybody they take a fancy too, or is the entry requirement extremely arcane and specific by default? Or is it some where in between, like personally worshipping the God, or something like having a knack for archery impressing Apollo or whatever. I think I remember a post sometime that said that being descended from Genghis Khan was enough to qualify you being Chosen by Ares or any war God (and given how much of the world's population is technically descended from him, that's an awful lot of candidates ) but I could be remembering that w...

    I don't think there was any way to do that in base 1e... 2e on the other hand has a Chosen Origin, but I'm not sure how open ended that is... as far as I remember initially only people under a very special set of circumstances could be chosen, but I think that requirement got loosened later, but don't quote me on that.

    Also, Created Scions are a thing now, beings like Enkidu or Pandora or Ganesha who are literally sculpted by Gods into existence... not sure if the character you are referring to woudl fit this though....

    On a similar note, I was wondering if Parvati and Kali will be treated as two mantles of the same deity, or two separate deities? Cuz I can see that going either way....

  • Oh, totally...some of them are probably culture specific to different branches of the Legacy...I mean, turning into a gaunt emaciated mendicant might be useful in India, but I'm not sure it wouldn't attract way too much attention to be useful in downtown Dublin ...

  • Actually, going back and reading the Oaths Fulfilled and Interconnections Spells and thinking about what I really want from that First Attainment, I actually now think that just Interconnections is a better base spell to go off of.



    Basically I'm now considering taking a page out of 21c Hermit's page and making the Attainment into a version of Interconnections that only does the bolded part, only instead of Oaths or Geasa it tells you if the person being observed is upholding or has violated his Dharma. And, as I understand it, the subject of an Unveiling spell is the...
