  • I believe there is a slight misunderstanding about what Purple Snit means by 'Real World Gods' and I wanted to weigh into the conversation to help with the possible confusion. As a game, Scion has to make some compromises in different situations to represent different Deities. Some situations are inherently too theologically complex to weave into a game line that has any semblance of balance, therefore the Gods in Scion are not purely the 'Real World Gods.'

    For example, a Deva, Theoi, Teotl, and Dia are all fundamentally different beings. Different cultures have different conceptions...

    The Fomori are pretty much exactly as smart, and functional as one of the Tuatha de Danann. (So, you might get some idiots and some utterly incompetent people, but for the most part they're roughly human-like in their intelligence) They have Bards, Druids, Kings, and presumably all the other social classes of Irish tradition. The trickiest thing a Fomori would have being a business man or woman is their propensity for being either malformed or mutilated (it is never clear which. In Balor's case we know his eye is not something he was born with) which might make their lives more difficult in such...

    I don't think The Dude means he only wants one Native American Pantheon in the game, he's suggesting those two as the ones he thinks are the most important to include. Similar to how I could go, "Well, I like most Trickster Gods, but if I had to pick only one as my favorite I would say the Raven from the Haida." He might want forty Native American Pantheons, but presenting the two he considers most important for inclusion....

    Fun, okay, I like this idea! Let's see...

    The Etruscans pretty clearly had some very different ideas of Divinity to the Latins to the south of them. The idea of Deities who are less Anthropomorphic, and the Haruspication are really interesting, but we just know so absolute little about them due to having limited written records, and then not having the ability to translate all of their language adding to the problems.

    I am going to make a single explanation for various Celtic groups. I would love to have a flourishing collection of Celtic Pantheons, but, we have scant...

    Haha! You're good at your summoning spells.

    The Irish had slavery as a core institution, with their main unit of currency, a Cumal, being a female slave. I believe it's three Cumal to a cow. Or other way around, I'm on campus right now and don't have my books on hand. Anyways, yeah, big slave culture. Not based on race or anything, mostly a result of the Irish being pretty focused on internal raiding. Capture slaves from a neighboring people you are raiding, that sort of thing. I don't know if we have a ton of details left, but I know that slaves are mentioned in the legal texts....
