    Alright this may come across as a non-sequester but given that I already sarcastic mentioned the possibly of Hephaestus being a GameGater I like to seriously bring up possibility of Eris gaining the Mantle of Goddess of Trolling, Flame Wars and Youtube Comments in the modern day.

    She doesn't care what your sexuality or gender identity is so long as her defending it or attacking it pisses off a bunch of people and cause them to argue with each other online!

    Now that is horrifying.

    That's definitely true, atamajakki. But just because someone's changed over the years doesn't mean it's always a positive change. Ares might have become less bloodthirsty by the 21st century but Hephaestus could have become a GamerGater!

    A horrifying thought I know but just as possible.

    Besides Pantheons are their going to be any kind of powerful international organizations Scions can join like The Orders, The Covenants, Conspiracies in Chronicles of Darkness?

  • Someone correct me if I'm wrong but 1e setting was essentially just like the real world with many of the pantheons no longer being actively worshiped besides the Deva and the Kami. In 2e Abrahamic religion is still the most common in the world but a lot more people have superstitions and belief in older polytheistic faiths. Also, Titan have been replaced by the term Primordial, who aren't as evil this time around. Other than those changes I don't know.

    How about interesting conflict? I'm not saying that need to have bigotry in your games to make them interesting, but I don't believe including it makes the game unplayable or is an example of the GM being a sadist in most cases. Some of the greatest films and stories of all time have been based around a character or a group of characters nobly fighting aganist some kind of bigotry in their lives. Classics like Guess Whose Coming to Dinner and To Kill a Mockingbird, and more recent films like Pride, the Help, and Hidden Figures all deal with this and their great because of it.

    Furthermore,...

    Thanks, Samudra. My grammar isn't always great, but that was essentially want I was trying to get across.

    Also, yeah, I probably should have figured that there were other renditions of Kali in Hinduism that played up more positive aspects. Thanks for the info....

    replied to Historical settings?
    The Victorian Age is always an interesting choice. But a very pulp-adventure rendition of the 1920's with jungle princesses, mad scientists, hermetic sorcerers, unrealistic archeologists and ancient deities thrown in the mix would be cool as well.

    ​Now this a cool idea, unnatural1. It actually reminds of a 1E Scion game I was part of back in the day where Athena after getting really tried of Zeus being, well, Zeus, just decides to assassinate him with help of Artemis and Apollo resulting in a huge Theoi civil war with Athena and Ares, whose being supported by Hera and Aphrodite, both gunning for the spot of new Ruler of the Gods. In that scenario it turned out that prophecy about Zeus' downfall was just plain wrong and that any child of the Big Z would one day overthrow him, but the idea that Athena was genderfluid is pretty neat....

    I figured Charlaquin would come around here eventually. Good to see you.

    Anyways, I suppose this is all a consequence of a much larger discussion as to what Scion is supposed to be about. It is it a game about modern people encountering ancient, all-powerful and perhaps very, very different ideological beings which than breeds an interesting and perhaps disturbing culture clash? Or it an adventure series where valiant heroes fight monsters while Zeus/Shango/Odin/Amaterasu acts as the protagonists cankerous but benevolent mentor figure?

    I'm not seeing that this game can't...

    Oh, that's a shame. I was enjoying reading your arguments. I hope you reconsider and come back to the discussion later....

    Maybe, just maybe, this particular comparsion/argument should be dropped Nyrufa. I don't want to shut you down but atamajakki is understandably touchy about this subject and I doubt she'll back down or agree with your assertions. She's made it pretty clear that idea of any of the female-focused gods being transphobic is a no sell and she's allowed to have that opinion, right. No need to argue when you know its not going to go anywhere.

    Also, by the Gods, I am also tried of seeing Hades being treated as if he's Christian Satan/Lucifer. I mean, syncretism is a thing in mythology but...

    Ouch looks like things are getting heated.

    Well, how about people just do what their players are conformable with and thinks makes for an interesting setting for their characters.

    That's basically all there is too it.

    I'm sure that Neall will eventually come in and tell us what exactly "canon" has to say about Conservative-minded gods versus more Politically Correct-minded gods but fundamentally I think both atamajakki and Nyrufa (who seem to be the main reason this thread has some many pages so far) are right in their assessments, or at very least...

    Guess some people really want to take the Centre out of Centre-Left Democrats.

    Will be interesting to see who wins that civil war, if one even starts.
