    replied to New Community Content: Scion Pride!
    I had heard that the Hawaiian myths had a deity who was a patron of same sex partners/love. But that report was written by an outraged New Englander. So, anyone know the facts?

    And if you follow the latest critical thought maybe Ganesha, Hermes, Thoth, Mananan Mac Lir, and Athena, could make diplomatic contact with Yog-Sothoth to undermine Nyarlathotep and Cthulhu.

    By the way, as Cthulhu is imprisoned by submerging his city, I can't see him as a Sea God/ Water Elemental....

    Yeah, worshiping the Outer Gods would be like worshiping the Titans. In fact exactly the same, and we know that there are cults that worship the Titans and are about exactly like the cults worshiping Cthulhu in Lovecraft's tales. The Mythos are simply another group of Titans. With admittedly strange bells and whistles....

    Nodens is in stories by HPL as is Bast. Both are in multiple editions of Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu. As Lovecraft adored cats, Bast was a shooin. Nodens, whose worship was accepted and respected by the Romans, was a respectable British god in HPL's anglophile eyes....

    That assumes that it's the Cthulhu Mythos is the right way to speak of Lovecraft's tales. I'm with those who prefer to think of Lovecraft's stories as the Yog-sothoth mythos. Remember that the Dreamlands in "Dreamquest for Unknown Kadath" contain the Gods, the Dead, the Demons, and others. The Gods of Earth are pretty much captives, if honored ones, of Nyarlathotep. Struggle between Nyarlathotep, a monstrously selfish being desiring to eliminate Fate by eliminating mankind,, and the Gods, would be very different than Lovecraft's tales, Still, given the trouble a mere human dreamer like...

  • I don't think Kyman meant "permanent" Legend. I don't have my books to hand but I think Kyman meant temporary Legend. I may have my terms wrong, but I know that Permanent Legend gives you temporary points to activate your Purviews etc.

  • Kithbook Eshu, why no hard copies?

    What it says on the tin. I can get hard copies of Kithbooks Boggun, Nocker, Phooka, Red Cap, Troll, Slaugh, and Satyr, and the house books for the Sidhe, but I can't buy a hardcopy for the Eshu. What gives?

  • I'd love a Renaissance/Early Modern Swashbuckler setting (it would mix the various types from First Edition Adventure! but in their 2e forms.) I'd go with the name Anthor ( an Alchemist's furnace).

  • People routinely charged for the book "The Long Lost Friend" AKA "Pow Wows," and it's mainly which Bible verse to read for what occult power you want to harness. Look it up on Wikipedia, it's a real book . It has an amazingly sinister reputation and gets into horror stories as a backwoods Necronomicon, but it's real and mainly lists of Bible verses....

    I see an Insight Purview as a grand replacement for Epic Perception and Epic Intelegence (I suppose the Cunning Purview replaces Epic Wits). Still many deities are gods of Wisdom or a similar trait. This is a needed Purview.

  • That's good for in the main continuity magic, and how the setting should go. I was talking about out of continuity and out of left field stuff. No core supplement should use actual magic, however when you're setting up something twisted and silly, such rules are useful. Heck, just take the version of Mage magic they used in a supplement for Hunter: the Reckoning polish the rough edges and put it in an appendix in the back of a toolkit book....

  • I'm with BrilliantRain on the idea of doing something like the Dark Eras books with the Trinityverse. Once you've got the main eras set out and time travel set up and/or limited both themes (Super Spy, Steampunk, Classic Sci-fi) and alternates outside of the timeline (basically any alternative history plus how to cross actual magic into the setting) can be accommodated.

  • After Adventure, what's our desire.

    What it says on the tin. Both Amina and Adventure are in the writing pipeline at various stages. So, what kind of stuff do we want next?

    In terms of games I'd like a far future setting with aliens, supertech, and new ways of handling the major powers.

    I'd also like a time war game where the dials could be moved around freely from Fritz Lieber's "Big Time", to Tommy Tomorrow and the Time patrol, to "Doctor Who", as the players wish.
