    replied to Inspiration
    Now while it's not a good inspiration for actual folklore, I like the animated series "Hilda" on Netflix as inspiration. Not for material, but for TONE.

    Hilda is a show where the mythic and magical is... Y'know just kind of accepted as a Thing in the world. When the main character, Hilda, tells her mom that she's friends with a small elf and watches trolls in the wild, her mom never doubts her. Hell, the city they move to, Trollberg, has a giant wall around it to keep out trolls, and the local hardware store sells troll repellent. Monsters, spirits, and magic exist... And...

    Actually, this one is mentioned offhand in text! I believe the Origins book mentions that there's a university in Memphis, Egypt, that bears the name of Imhotep, a Scion of the Netjer! So yes, divinely-sponsored colleges are very much a real thing in the World!...

    Yeah, I remember in the AMAs and Streams post Volume 5, the crew were talking about how they're trying and they're really getting the hang of showing more and just telling less. I guess that's why, in spite of the shortcomings, I give RWBY a lot of slack and focus on when it works because one, I still enjoy it, and two... They're trying, and they want to get better.

    Are these two Primordials? It mentions that the two Incarnate into the World, which Primordials don't really do because they're too darn big.

    Eh, semantics, I suppose...

    started a topic Scion 2e Kickstarter Update 67 - Atlantis!

    Scion 2e Kickstarter Update 67 - Atlantis!

    So for those unaware, we got the December update for the 2e Kickstarter (Apparently the last bits of errata are being written in and all the Page XXs are being replaced with actual numbers) and a teaser from the Companion. A blurb about Atlantis as it will be mentioned in the Scion Companion, under Build Your Own Pantheon, and two of its Gods.

    Atlantis Itself


    The Teros of Atlantis
    In the World of Scion, Atlantis is fallen, a ruined and lost Terra Incognita. Its Gods, if they ever existed at all, are long dead. The Atlantean pantheon depicted here is optional canon,

    replied to What are your character concepts?
    A Born Scion of Loki.

    Their father is Loki.

    Their mother is ALSO Loki.

    Two Incarnations met in a bar, didn't realize who the other was, and thus Loki pranked themselves.

    Loki would probably be angrier, but they have to admit that from the outside it IS really funny.

    Don't put words in my mouth.

    You noted "At my table, only Actual Gods can have Scions" with the implication that entities serving a higher power that do not consider themselves Gods would not count, specifically the Angels serving YHWH.

    I point out that by this definition, the Orisha (and as another user noted, the Yazata) would not consider themselves Gods. I intended this as a "Honestly what the game considers to be a viable patron may not align with beings that consider themselves Gods"

    To which you replied that the Orisha are definitely...

    Just gonna note that even without ACTIVE meddling, the World's Insurance Companies will have a VERY different outlook on covering "Acts of the Gods"

    But the Orisha, as far as I know (which isn't much admittedly) would NOT say they are Gods. They are very powerful entities capable of great things, but they themselves would say that they're not Gods.

    No more than the Angels would say that they're Gods. They're simply very powerful beings that enact the Will of the Almighty. In Game terms, the mightiest of Angels would almost certainly be Gods of a sort, mechanically, regardless of what they themselves say. You're actually kind of presuming quite a bit here.

    Now again, your table, your rules, and nobody's going to kick...

    How do you define a God? The Orisha would say they're not Gods if you asked them. They'd say they have One Big True God, they're just like messengers of them.

    Not unlike Angels, when you think about it.

    And most Angels in a hypothetical Abrahamic Angelic Host Pantheon would probably, A, have Chosen Scions... And B would insist that the Scions are Chosen in Accordance with the Will of the Divine, of which they are but mere messengers....

    Pbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbt

    Okay there was a very clear establishing shot of one of the daughters' toys in the wreckage, in the aftermath of a fight that involved the castle being blasted, Ozma being fatally wounded, and Salem was fucking vaporized (we see her reform when the rubble settles)

    Like, Salem didn't deliberately kill her kids but make no mistake... Those kids were EXCEPTIONALLY dead.

    I mean, at least three of them were, I could maybe buy ONE of them managing to escape. But nah, those kids are dead and it's because Salem took exception to her...

    Eh, no moreso than the other Pantheons. I've no doubt that in the World there ARE Scions who claim that their power comes from YHWH, or one of His servants.

    I'll take this moment to link another user's very well-made homebrew Angelic Host Pantheon, which has a sidebar noting that the Angels definitely exist, and they say that the Creator does as well, but that the Angels mostly seem to refuse to provide any clarification for the smaller questions about the cosmological breakdown.

    Such as "So was Jesus actually the Son of God?", with the reason being "Each...

    I, uh, actually haven't seen anybody jump to Dust Is People. At all.

    The biggest theory I've seen is that Dust was the chunks of the moon that hit Remnant after the God of Darkness smashed through it. Since he gave Magic to humanity.

    So yeah, Episode 3 had a veritable gold mine of huge reveals. But in my opinion none are more shocking than:

    Okay one... Salem's plumbing still works countless years later, after being cursed, and after a dip in the Tar Pits of the Dark Brother.

    Two: Ozpin fucked that. At LEAST four times.
