rjshae Posted February 1, 2013 Share Posted February 1, 2013 Mortals in Project Eternity share many traits with mortals on Earth. Personally, I like the approach that religions reflect the worldviews and the lives of societies/individuals just like in our world. However, what's with the god of greed in this update and the early mention of gods scheming? For example, people who worship a god of wealth can earn a reputation of being greedy from other people. However, if a certain people worship "god of greed", then, how can they earn social trust in the first place? Simply, I cannot come up with even a possible example. Something that strikes me as slightly irregular about RPG implementations of pantheons is the concept of people only praying to a specific god. CRPGs like NWN2 have you pick a particular god to worship, as if that is your only choice. Yet in ancient societies with multiple gods, the people would often pray to many deities. A city like Athens would have a tutelary deity, but there would be other temples to other gods worshiped on particular days of the year. Wouldn't it make more sense to be able to choose multiple deities that you favor? Say your top 3? "It has just been discovered that research causes cancer in rats."
