    Make this a third vote for more detail on the idea - I think it's a very worthy alternative cosmology, and definitely very playable.

    It's funny. I see a lot of debate over the degree of flexibility presented in the core system preview, over how much or how little you can do with nine different stats. I play GURPS, which only has four stats, and with the assorted skills, advantages, disadvantages, and optional rules, you can do pretty much anything - I doubt that nine is going to be a barrier to creativity. The new system is supposed to cover everything from humans to sun gods, and all the degrees in between, and apparently playtesting says it works. If all you have is the preview, I would suggest withholding judgement until...

    Actually, I think that's a really brilliant explanation for all of the "real worlds" and their apocalyptic myths - it explains all of the differences, gives everyone their own cosmology, justifies "Odin/Geb/Tezcatlipoca made the world we live in [you are absolutely right, for your world], and gives great opportunity for somewhere to be destroyed [what did happen to Vanaheim, anyway?] without having to destroy all of Creation in the process. Imagine if Ragnarok happens, and the surviving Aesir are now refugees from their world, and wind up in someone else's; there's an entire campaign...

    I would presume that the limits are for mortal/heroic characters, and that there are additional points/dots/bonuses as one progresses to Demigod or God levels.

    A trio of people who could have been Scions, or who might just have been ordinary folks who were martyred and defied by their followers. Either way, the rules would cover what is needed for mechanics of making your own faith and pantheon, from what we've been told. There are many small regional faiths in the world (plus many more in history), too many to cover in the basic rulebook in detail. But that's what the fan-generated supplements will be used for, I'm sure.

    I would hope the same place as the Atlantean Gods - filed under "how to make your own pantheon." There are enough legitimate historical pantheons to cover without including modern new age fringe groups. If you want them in your game, go for it, and there's room for pretty much anything under open license. But I don't think too many would want the central rules to spend time on the kinds of groups you mentioned.

    I think the Inuit are known as the Inue, are they not?

    replied to Scion like fiction
    Some suggestions for adult fiction with a divine theme: The Immortals by Jordanna Brodsky – Artemis as a detective in modern New York; Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips - comedic novel about the Greek gods in the modern day; Dark Descendant series by Jenna Black, reincarnated deities, urban fantasy with romance overtones; the comic series the Wicked & the Divine cannot be recommended highly enough; James Lovegrove's several "Godpunk" novels are popular, though I don't like them myself. Hopefully that gives you some ideas!...
