    replied to Ask Neall
    Oh, happy to help. She is not presented in the pre-written Guides from what has been released to the Backers, though changes may be put in before things go to print as always. You could easily take some of the already existing Guides mechanical skeletons and rewrite them into Scáthach, or you could write her from scratch. She has a lot of potential uses as a Guide, tons of different Unique Knacks, and Guide Stunts based on the various Weapon Feats CúChulainn knows is a great place to start, as well as potentially being the source of other Birthrights herself.

    If there's anything...

    I'm not Neall of course, but Scáthach is a great Guide for any Scion of the Túatha Dé Danann. There is no scholarly evidence that suggests a role of a deity for her, though a half-argument could be made that she might be one of the Síd due to the nature of her realm having several markers of being an Otherworld. Though, normally the manuscripts make the identity of Síd plainly known through outright statement or descriptions of clothing and hair.

    Unfortunately, there is no Scottish Pantheon she could fit into due to the assimilation of the various Pictish kingdoms into Dál Riata,...

  • I really sorry the layout is off! I haven't heard any complaints before, so it might be the reader? If you can PM me a screen shot I can compare it against what I have and let you know. If it is proving detrimental to reading it, maybe upload it to Google Drive?

    And thanks for the catch on the Bogovi bit. I spent a while milling it over, since I thought it made more sense grammatically to have an adjective after a form of To Be, but apparently this is one of those weird things about English!

    Have you enjoyed the Pantheon otherwise?...

  • While the Šiuneš do have a... not-great relationship with humans, I don't think they will ever look down on Scions born of mortal and divine parentage sheerly for the fact of Ušḫuni's existence. A powerful, sociopathic Titan who was a Scion originally. I think the Hittite Gods will never look down on mortal born Scions, but they might be very suspicious, and very cautious in their deals. Ušḫuni was a Pantheon-Tier threat, and is the only half-divine Scion that existed from what we know, and thus similarly born Scions will have to find their way out from under his shadow and free themselves...

  • It's less that we are skipping around the multiple Enkis as that modern Hittite scholarship uses Ea to refer to the entity we lack a proper Hittite name for. The Hittites were kings at adapting things, and took a lot of Sumerograms and used them for their own religious systems. We are just following the example of modern scholarship there since it helps prevent a lot of confusion since Hittite scholars work closely with Mesopotamian scholars. I don't want to claim credit for it, people who know the field far better than I do came up with it!

  • I am very glad people are enjoying them! If anyone has any questions about them, myself and Sacerdos are always around. We hope people have fun reading about them, and learn a bit! Let us know how they go in your games if you wind up using them.

  • The Šiuneš - The Pantheon of the Hittite Empire 2e Homebrew

    Where did the fine linens go? The wine, and food? Servants to bathe, clean, and dress the mighty Šiuneš every day.... it has been so long...

    Millennia have passed since their mortals ruled, conquering their neighbors from their fast-running chariots. The
    Šiuneš, Deities of ancient Ḫatti have haunted the mountainous lands of Anatolia for eons now. They were there to fight and then ally with the Netjer, forging an everlasting treaty, they clashed with the Anunna in their many shapes and destroyed their crown jewel, Babylon, and they watched as the Theoi, newly-arrived on the Scene,
