    replied to Scion and Monotheism
    There is a sidebar in Hero on Page 24 that discusses Monotheism. In addition, the game contains the Orisha, who are explicitly a monotheistic Pantheon and mentioned as such in their write-up, and also the Deva, many of whose followers (myself included) are monotheistic. So monotheism is very much there in the book. Though I will note that, given the number of religious beliefs that Humanity has espoused over the ages, it is impossible to represent them all, no matter in what form or fashion....

    replied to What Purview Would Alchemy Fall Under?
    Define Alchemy? If all you want is the power to turn things into Gold then Prosperity of Earth would suffice... if you actually want your character to work in a lab making potions and tinctures and the like, the crafting for that would fall under Forge. If you just want 'uses quick fire potions as a way to get off magic effects' that's easily handled as a Motif, and indeed the Shen already have alchemy as a Motif, and the Orisha Motif lets them use rootwork to similar effect; one of their Scions is described as drinking a potion to breathe gouts of flame.

    Not strictly Errata but I checked with Neall before posting: Lakshmi shouldn't have Wild. Fertility adequately covers her plant associations.

    The 'Terrible to Behold' SIdebar on page 242 mentions that a God or Scion with the appropriate Title can emulate Boons as Marvels of a different Purview at no additional cost. Only, the Marvels section only has a single cost list for duplicating Boons, no mater which Purview they fall under. So this part probably needs some clarification if any kind of cost difference is expected.

    replied to Ask a question, get an answer: Scion Edition
    There are Eight Million Kami and only so many Gods you can write up in a book... If you want to see a Fire using Kami and know of one, you are free to write then up yourself... And please stop with the 'Japan knew Fire existed' line, it's getting ridiculous. The authors are not, on any way shape or form, implying that the Japanese did not know that Fire existed just because they didn't put ina God of Fire... That line of argument makes zero sense and also makes it very difficult to take the rest of your post with any degree of seriousness.

    The Hindus knew how to smith things... They...

    Neall has actually already confirmed that all Creatures do scale up, and a 5 dot God Tier creato creature is more than capable of taking on deities.



    Though in the case of the Vahana specifically they have additional buffs going on via Yoga....

    The basic Incarnate Origin requires that your Deity Self (or at least that Mantle) be dead yes... that being said, Hindu Myth is chock full of Heroic Incarnations that are absolutely Player Character material, and whose over-selves absolutely exist simultaneously in their own realms (or whichever realm they want to be in frankly), so in this case the Incarnate Origin doesn't work as written for your character idea or Hindu Myth in general.

    That being said, the Yoga Purview exists, and it is absolutely fitting and in line with myth to say that Yoga lets the Deva create Incarnate Scions...
