    Twin daughters of Izanami; the elder sister is bright, cheerful and uplifting, while the younger sister is dark, moody and depressing. Their Legend paints a contrasting image on the nature of life and death when the elder sister becomes a goddess of death and funerals, while the younger sister takes on the mantle of birth and life.



    A son of Izanagi who frequently tries to convince his father to get back into the dating world. Eventually becoming a god of love and romance; he is seen as a divine matchmaker among the Amatsukami, although his efforts are not always appreciated....

    I think the Greeks have a god for that... can't remember what his name is though.

    A Scion of Dionysus who works as an international drug lord, producing some of the finest, grade A quality shit in the western hemisphere!...

    Don't worry, wasn't trying to make this weird.

    Can't remember if I posted this one or not;


    Scion of Gaia (originally Hera) who was saved from the wrath of Zeus once he learned of his wife's infidelity. Hera never got the chance to tell him his heritage, because a bolt of lightning set his house ablaze before she could contact him. Although he yet lives, his mortal family was not so lucky, and he was horribly scarred by the house fire that claimed them. He now serves the Titan of the World voluntarily...

    Well, I'm a furry and I've got ideas surrounding various characters. Like, the vast majority of the Egyptian pantheon. Who, I am lead to believe, were practically swimming in sex and incest. ...

    A daughter of Loki who has a really unhealthy affection towards her half brother, Fenrir. She even goes so far as to pay him conjugal visits in the form of a she wolf. Around the time of Ragnarok, she plays a role in freeing the dread wolf and attempts to circumvent his death by assassinating Vioarr before Odin's climactic battle with Fenrir.

    Meh, I made an idea similar to that on the story hooks section. A Scion who goes around killing children of foreign pantheons so he can eat them. His relics were a meat cleaver and a butcher's knife....

    Also, should keep in mind that Dante wasn't exactly a priest. He was a poet and his description of Hell (multiple layers with their own forms of punishment) wasn't described in the actual mythology. Hell was described as being the 'second death' in which the souls sent to burn there would become ashes beneath the feet of the faithful after the time of salvation.The Biblical Hell isn't a place of eternal torment, it's a crematorium for lost souls. Only those who gained entry to Heaven were / are granted eternal life.

    replied to Vengeance is Apparently An Actual Virtue
    From a philosophical view point, the concept of vengeance and justice are just illusions. The only difference between them is how many people agree with your reaction. If you take matters into your own hands, it's considered vengeful. If you act with the support of the people behind you, it's justified. Baring in mind that the majority of punishments that we have considered 'justice' in the past would be considered an extreme act of vengeance in today's world. But the people believed that they were the right response to wrong doings at the time, and so that was justice back in those days.

    Actually, the story of Jesus says that he spent the 3 days he was dead wandering around the Underworld and saving the condemned souls who died before him. I think there's even a story of him strolling right into Hades and stealing people from... well, Hades.

    And prior to Christianity there was no belief in Hell, or at least not in the capacity we know it today. Jews don't believe in that stuff, so when you die, you're just dead. Waiting for the messiah to come, in which the dead shall rise from their graves and go to join God. Which is why they don't cremate their dead. Can't come...

    Very true. One has to remember that society had very different views at the time. Otherwise, if we judge people of history by the norms of today, then every past civilization would be a shit hole by today's standards....

    Sure, everybody knows about Hades seeking love under less than ideal circumstances. But aside from that, what villainous acts has he truly committed? You'll be hard pressed to find any, I'm sure. And if you do, it's nothing compared to the laundry list of atrocities the others were responsible for. Heck, he even assisted the heroes in the past by lending them his magic helmet, which makes the wearer invisible!...

    replied to Beast: Character Idea Thread
    Paindeer: Technically, he calls himself 'the Red Nosed Paindeer,' but that was too long, so everybody just shortened it. Regardless, the Paindeer has established himself as an almost comical terror who wanders the land at night and gores anybody who crosses his path. He generally prefers to hunt solitary prey, those who have been cut off from the rest of the herd. But if he's feeling particularly famished, he'll go after groups and pick them off one by one. For him, it's all about the thrill of catching his victims completely off guard. He moves through the night without leaving a trace, and the...

  • If I'm not mistaken, even the 1E core book tells players that the Predator's Taint is often tossed out in homebrew because players feel that it's too much of a hassle. Which begs the question of why they would even write it up in the first place if they warn you how much of a problem it's going to be.


    As for the emotionally dead stuff, I thought that was attributed to the Daeva who specifically use emotions like a tool to get what they want and eventually lose the ability to actually feel anything....

    Well, there are many different versions of various lore. I personally like the versions in which the mortals manage to defeat the Gods in some capacity because it breaks away from the long held stereotype that Gods were invincible entities beyond the reach of mortals. It also helps to reinforce the Greek philosophy of striving to be the best you can be, since under achievers had a shitty afterlife, even if they were good people. Only the best and the brightest got to live in paradise, according to the Greeks. Which is incredibly depressing, even if it did motivate them to greatness. ...

    Ah, well the 1st edition book describes Pan being the one who got skinned alive, and when Olympus laughed it off as a joke, he got pissed, quit the pantheon and became Satan.


    But the story of Arachne is basically like this. Arachne said she was the greatest weaver / spinstress in the world. Effectively calling out Athena, who has some influence over this. They challenged each other to a contest of skill and Arache's tapestry ended up being more impressive than Athena's. Enraged by having been shown up in a contest of skill (in front of a crowded audience, no less), she transformed...

    So, basically, you Rule 63'd the pantheon by replacing them with opposite gender counterparts? Gotta say, I don't understand the reason for doing so, other than some ill considered attempt at casting off assigned gender roles. By ill considered, I mean that you removed / replaced some characters but you don't seem to have a good reason as to why you would do so. Hades and Persephone were happy together, it was Persephone's mother who kept trying to break them up. So I find it very odd that she would turn against him, or leave him imprisoned in Greek Hell without some defining reason beyond Athena...
