    Ok. Didn't know that was from the Romans rather than the Greeks, thanks for clearing that up for me.

    The more you know....

    Wasn't Artemis sort of involved with Orion? But Apollo tricked her into killing him before it went anywhere?...

    Awesome, Thanks for answering. Means I can rebuild Scion of Sif that was a patron of family loyalty after she hit Goddess. Always felt 1e didn't let me do the concept justice. ...

    Will the Lover calling cover Familial and Platonic forms of love or purely romantic/sexual? If my Scion is extremely loving of friends and family, but totally Asexual would that calling be inappropriate? If so what would be the better choice?

  • Well the ambassadors are Scions, and if a god felt strongly enough I'm sure they would have a socially inclined Scion take the job. It just seems to not be super important to most I guess. Especially in modern day Democracies where leaders typically only last a handful of years I imagine most gods rather work on the subject of their interest without the silly mortal middlemen.

    The Exert is from the April preview, the one with the Satyr callings and the Flame and Forge stuff in it.

  • I don't think the gods would have a presence in the UN, or any "official" position in world government. Just a few exerts from the April Preview.

    "Heroic Expectations
    Beneath silent respect, fawning worship and fear, mortals hold Heroes to an implied duty:
    Protect us, and act as our representative among divine and legendary powers . Heroes
    bind, tame them or slay monsters. They plead the people’s case before angry Gods, or tell
    mortals what the Gods want. They explain why children vanish on the full moon by the
    ancient mounds, and if...

  • Based on the write up I think that you could mechanically represent Bastet with Bast's callings and purviews. They are different godesses, but close enough for confusion to happen. From what we've been told you inherit one calling and one purview from your parent so in most cases it would work, I think, kinda, maybe?...

    Yes, I was just wondering if things had changed due to the delay.

    I'm impatient gosh darnit....

  • In regards to the Norse, I've actually read from some sources that while Hel primarily punished the unworthy dead there was another aspect of her duties that including "Supplying the dead with lodgings and belongings". It seems that, while Nefilhem was not a fun place and Hel was not a particularly nice lady, most people that didn't die a glorious death fell into more, servant roles with the torment being reserved for things like kinslayers.

    Granted I am not sure of how accurate that source is and it's been awhile since I've read it....

    Will the origins PDF go out as soon as it is ready or will you be holding it back to release simultaneously with Hero?

    From the rules preview way back during the kickstarter campaign it seems to be a focus on the Action, Investigation, or Social scene types, probably reflective of your character's main "thing" as far as Tabletop characters can be considered skill monkeys, faces, or combat monsters. We don't have the full details yet though from what I recall. If I had to guess it would be some sort of difficulty decrease or die bonus when say, Eric Donner attempts to shoot a Giant in the face, Donnie Rhodes tries to bluff his way past a cyclops bouncer, or Aaron Tigrillo starts researching a cure for...

  • I would say that there would be a different but equally compelling reason to look to the hard sciences, if there are actual trolls eating your children and centaurs carrying off women wouldn't you seek better way to protect yourself than "Hope a scion shows up"? Chemists would have evolved from Alchemists rather than replacing them. And I recall Neil flat out saying even pre-visitation Scions with a more mental or social bent can introduce massive paradigm shifts into technology and culture. It seems like it provides a reasonable set of options for a different course to a recognizable...

  • The thing is from what we know of the "default" setting presented via the various previews and the ask Neal thread the gods don't have the same influence they once had, even if their religions have stayed stronger and more mainstream than the real world. We know that the Orisha have both failed to prevent a massive and far reaching tragedy from hitting their people, and changed to accommodate the situation. The Teotl preview mentions aspects of Mexican culture that are at least partially imports of Spain, which implies that the mass murder, enslavement, and intermingling of culture/genetics...

    I understand you're a major Netjer fan and want to make sure the rewrite was on target but we haven't seen any gods from the Kami, Manitou, Deva, or Aesir other than Loki from during the kickstarter. Spread the love :P....

    Ah, But if true names give you power over them wouldn't they want you to use the wrong names?...
