    replied to Monotheism and Henotheism
    My default assumption would be that the God of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam is a primordial, and the followers of those faiths believe that the other pantheons, though divine and mighty in their own right, are ultimately pretenders on par with the mightiest members of the heavenly host. Not that that makes it true in the World, but it's the views of those particular faiths. It preserves both the real history of those faiths overshadowing the others, but still leaves room for them not to try and convert entire belief systems, since in the end they're still technically serving the almighty through...

    I already admitted I'm not a fan of the stat assignment presented in the preview. That's not what I'm debating. I'm debating that untill we see what modular options are offered we should withhold final judgment. I've seem a lot of systems that present the "noob friendly" as the default and give the better rules as options for people that are more comfortable thinking of concepts that need more flexibility. The added incredible ease of house rules seems to make this a relitive non-issue. Ok It's a flaw in the bog standard set-up., but there are multiple ways around it. I think we both...

    Then houserule it, it's the simplest houserule on the world. "I'm giving you X points to put into attributes, have fun." Where x equals the total the RAW gives you....

    But there is an out of the box fix, or at least a couple optional ones. And the creation preview showed that even at character creation you can buy up individual attributes and even shuffle them around between sessions. So I think even without a RAW fix or houseruleing it would take maybe two sessions to fix the diversity issues. And none of the Knacks or Boons that have been spoiled even hint at being tied to arenas and favored approaches. I don't love the way you distribute starting stats either but I think there will be plenty of ways, both RAW and via houserule, to deal with it....

    Honestly, Neill said there were alternate creation rules in the ST chapter. Until we see those as well I don't think it's fair to say whether character creation is good or not.

    So I recall it being asked earlier why someone would want something like Beasts(birds) instead of Beasts all with the answer being something about being able to do more advanced marvels with the narrower focus, Does this continue on to say, the Morrigan's Beast(crows)? How many levels of specificity do these sorts of purview go?...

    replied to How Dangerous are the Devas?
    Yes but from what I understand of the previews, they are still minority religions for the most part. Just because people know they exist doesn't mean they follow them. But with the Deva, you have everyone that worships them without being able to actually meet them or their agents, plus some of those that wouldn't otherwise. Was the point I was getting at....

    Not to mention being more or less the only pantheon that has had an unbroken chain of mainstream worshipers even in the real world. (Ok maybe the Shen and Kami as well, but not to the same degree.)...

    I agree with this for the most part. But I imagine it's from the narrative perspective. The person that’s an expert at X fails at a difficult task only to eventually succeed once they have enough momentum. And the slight weirdness is a result of it becoming a group pool (which still makes sense from a purely narrative sense).

    Side note: Am I the only one that finds it odd that good liars are automatically good lockpicks and fences?...

    Dang, I completely overlooked that bit about arenas. That's a house rule if you're right. I kind of like the favored approach thing though. It's not perfect but I can see what the intent of it was, a direct person will probably be direct in all areas of their life, If you have the willpower to have a high resolve you'll likely be able to keep your cool with composure and push through pain with stamina. So it's more a personality indicator....

    I like the look of it. Some nice clear guidelines for the different systems, and it looks pretty flexible overall. Time will tell though, especially once we see the rest of the bells and whistles. It seems kind of easy to stat enhancements up to that +3 limit though...

    replied to Scion 2Ed Estimated release time
    They haven't given us a date but it was originally said to be coming out in May but it was delayed. There was a hint that an upcoming preview would include some elements of the base system as well. Hopefully soon.
