Ashes of Creation's Pantheon- A Beginning?
edited June 2017 in Ashes of Creation Lore
I wrote up this short article on Reddit. Given some information in the last Twitch Q&A, along with the final closing video, some gears began to turn in my brain, and I came up with the beginnings of a theory, as well as some possible gods, pictured in statues. Feel free to comment either there or here, but rather than re-write it all I thought I'd just link it since I know not everyone goes to the Reddit. Hope you enjoy it!
Technical answer: the Popup class applied to links in forum posts is changing the links to black.
We will be encountering ruins and monuments that are remnants of ancient times.
On the Other hand, all of those statues are human looking so far. I think it would be boring if all the Gods are just Humanoids.
I think what you are seeing is each metropopolis has its own god.
military, religious, economic, science. Hence you see one solitary statue in the metropolis and two metropoloi shows two different statues/gods.
That woman holding the scales is actually holding a dagger in one hand and a squid in the other. The same squiddy thing we see in the water temple video.
Also they said that certain kickstarter backers would get their own statue in the starting areas
well the warrior surly the military, the snake lady i can see as the religious or scientific one, the squid lady, which looks nearly like a scale could work for economics.
Seems to solidify the connection quite nicely, methinks. There's also a mural of a kraken sieging a town. I wonder how that is related...
Basically it'll probably work like the race thing. The race that contributes the most makes the city architecture look a certain way. A city's religion will probably determine what god(s) the temple worships (if there's a temple), and this will likely be very important for religious nodes.
At that point, a person who knows about a god can choose to worship them. Then, through word of mouth, they can discuss the god, or maybe even being a worshipper allows you to build a small shrine on your freehold. Other people can then come and see the shrine and choose to worship there.
Soon enough with enough worshippers in the world, the god is eligible for a temple in a node.
@Megs is going to spit her ale out with excitement!
Btw, balance lady looks a little like she's showing of some weird squid she captured to her followers.
well, call me ye pirate ship, there will be squid for diner!
