    replied to Scions of Titans
    There're plans to have rules for Titan-born Scions in 2e in a supplement, with separate Callings and Knacks that cause physical deformities.

    Scions who fight alongside the Titans take on their Virtues.

    replied to How Many?
    Depends on the god, to be honest. Some might not have any at a given point in time, some might only have one, and some might have quite a few.

    replied to Time Travel in the Continuum
    Ian's mentioned having plans on handling time travel and alternate timelines somewhere down the line - not in the core TC book, but he's pretty sure he knows where he'll put them.

  • The Uncrowned Kings draw on similar alchemical ideas to the Solificati, both pursuing self-perfection through refinement.

  • Mm. Looking at the rats' Monarchies writeup, it's more what they need is having rat society fleshed out, getting a better idea of how non-antagonist rats live - understandably, Monarchies focuses on the rats that clash with the cats, the criminals and cultists....

  • This is more a thing of early 1e Awakening, and fades away as the line develops.

    Subtle Ones (1e core) - Ahl-i-Batin
    Perfected Adepts (1e core) - Akashic Brotherhood
    Dreamspeakers (Legacies: The Ancient) - obvious
    Tamers of Stone (Legacies: The Ancient) - the Craftmasons
    Thread Cutters (Legacies: The Ancient) - the Euthanatos

    The Thrice-Great (Legacies: The Ancient) draw on Hermeticism, but in a different fashion from the Order of Hermes.

    The Celestial Masters of both games started out as explorers, but they went in very different...

    Yeah, I think that pretty much sums up the situation.

    replied to Sandmen motivations?
    First, need to make an important distinction. Sandmen can be divided into two groups, the Dream Union, aka the Sandmen's Guild, and freelancers, non-Guild members. The Guild is primarily Renegade; freelancers orientate to neutrality, the Hierarchy or the Heretics. So yes, there are Sandmen who join up with the Hierarchy, but the Guild is not that way inclined.

    Now, there was a time when Guild members did indeed live the high life, were feted by the nobles of the Hierarchy. That time was before the Breaking of the Guilds. As the Sandmen tell it, they went overboard, abused their privileges...

    The Guild is primarily aligned with the Renegades...

    And quite often - particularly with their more psychological goals - they can get away with interacting with mortals without leaving any evidence....

    There are as many reasons as there are Sandmen. Because it pays well, both from the living and the dead, because they love performing, because they want to ease the pain of the Quick, because they want to save the Quick's souls, because it's exciting, because they're curious, because they want to inspire mortals to create great art...

    The Guild tends to draw those with an interest in performance and those with an interest in psychology....

    replied to How many times have the Titans tried to escape?
    Nope. Neall indicated something like that early on, but it appears to have been dropped.

    As it currently stands, metaphysically speaking Titans are deities who are wrapped up in their Purviews, lacking any regard, any connection, to humanity. Primordials are entities of such grand concept they generally can't manifest in the World, appearing only in the Overworld, and even then in world-body form....

    Depends which edition you're asking about. In 1e, the presentation is very much that this is the Titans' first successful escape. In 2e, however, not all the Titans were imprisoned - some were, but some were driven off, and some were bound to the pantheons through blood or marriage.

    Here's what we were last told about mortal options, keeping in mind they're subject to change.

    Sorcerers range in capability from Rincewind to Baba Yaga; Neall hopes he can let sorcerers scale.
    Saints sort of ignore scaling. (Neall's noted they have an odd relationship with gods - Vishnu once got taken out by a rsi, for example.)
    Oracles & prophets can do things gods technically can't....
