    replied to Aztec mythology and the end of the world
    It depends a lot on the individual Storyteller, the books never give a specific layout of the world as saying anything definitive gets tricky when multiple Pantheons claim the exact same bit of soil. But, no matter the geopolotics of central america in Scion, there are still sacrifices being offered to the Teotl. Those numbers are slightly off however. Sacerdos is doing his degree on contact-era Mesoamerica so he could weigh in more, but their sacrifice system was nowhere near that scale. Even if modernized it probably wouldn't be. Modernly chicken blood is used in the surviving cult presences...

    Scion Second Edition presents a world where the various cultures of the Pantheons never crashed and their worship has continued into the modern day, so in the setting of Scion, Tenochtitlan might not have fallen, and even if it did, the worship of the Teotl never stopped. The Fifth Sun endures as it always has, through the effort of the divine and mortal alike through sacrifice and sharing the burden. So, the answer is that the world still exists because the Mexica (Aztecs) never crashed and the human sacrifices never stopped.

    For games that do not use the setting offered by Scion...

  • Yeah, yourself and Glamourweaver is on the nose there. While they are both Raven Deities of First Nations peoples, they're pretty different. Xhuuya is... not... a good person. Xhuuya is so bad that the Haida do not consider him worthy of worship, strip him of his names (important in their culture), and agree that the reason you shouldn't worship him is that he is fundamentally too selfish to give you anything worth your while in exchange.

    The Pantheon as a whole has a fairly good relationship with humanity, but Xhuuya is just... not a good person. He would honestly be a Titan if it...

  • The Sgā’na Qeda’s - The Pantheon of the Haida First Nation 2e Homebrew

    A wind blows in from the sea, carrying the sound of the paddles that guide a cedar canoe along the shore. The sand is damp beneath your feet, the sound of the waves mixes with the rumble of an engine as a car passes along the road behind you. Stretching out in all three directions around you is the Supernatural. Above your head, far beyond the clouds they reside. Before you, deep beneath the sea they live. Behind you, deep within the forest they survive.

    They never left, though by Law and Crown an eradication, a scourge, a genocide was carried out against their people. But they were

    As I said, this is due to how Apotheosis works in China. As he was enshrined and actively worshiped, he becomes a God. His consent is not required in the matter. That's how it works for them. Look at the discussion in Hero, I believe Mendez, the author of the section, references this situation....

    This is not actually the case. Confucius from the Shen is not into Gods, but has been made into one against his will due to the way Apotheosis works in China. His writeup in Hero goes over this....

    I believe at some level, depending on the sect used, a Pantheon that looks at a Buddhist 'Pantheon' would fit that. Though I know Buddhism gets complex depending on which sect is in question....
