Actually one of the things that you kinda pick up reading the books in Song of Ice and Fire is that basically everybody is a goddamn b*****d. Not sure if the same is true in the show, since I have not watched it. Anybody that seems like a "good guy" gets killed or warped into something harsh and brutal. What amazes me is that people love THIS, but then they hate Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman for the same goddamn reasons.

Yeah, I remember telling you about CK2. emotion_yatta I haven't played it in a while, since they updated the game for the latest expansion, but yessssss. Although I'm loathe to call any religion a "minor religion", I know what you mean. The religious tolerance in India is present in CK2, as well. Any character you make can easily switch branches, choose new patron deities, and so on. It's pretty awesome.

Oh, yeah, I've been working on it for a long time. I'm not sure how comfortable I am discussing it here on Gaia, though. Leastwise, not through comments.

That amuses me so much, Puu. rofl

Well, yeah, but I think most things revolve around light/dark, more or less. x3

In general, middle eastern mythology doesn't get much in the way of exposure, in my opinion. Not nearly as much as other mythos. That's actually one of the cool things that I like about Crusader Kings II, because they include a number of religions that don't otherwise get their time to shine. Granted, there are full religions that are treated as heresies of other religions in the game, but that's mostly just to simplify things and isn't really intended as any sort of slight. Zoroastrianism is present, and is really quite fun to play with, but it is obscenely difficult to restore it, due to the overbearing presence of Islamic denominations in the region. Also depending on the era that you're playing in, there is a large amount of pagan presence, specifically Tengri in the area. Then there are also the Indian religions not too far east of that that can and will start to creep west, depending on the events of the game. But I digress. xd


Yessssss, I love etymology. It's actually one of the first things that I look at, given any or no reason to do so. Most especially in the world that I'm creating for my writing, since I want the names that I give things to have meaning, but not necessarily be immediately recognizable. Not so much as a deception, as I just want it to be able to stand apart from whatever it is that it is based on. Yay for playing with words~

People have the right to be offended. But people also have the right to give offense. But that's another conversation entirely. xd


I don't know enough about Persian mythology, to be honest.

Language is funny that way, especially when it crosses borders and is used by other peoples beyond whomever first coined the term.

If a single game came out with African mythology, I would jump all over it (given the chance, obviously). Native American as well, but I'd clamor for that a little less. It is still near and dear to me, since it is a part of my heritage (then again, so is African), but Native American culture and mythology has had several nods over the years, even if it hasn't really had its just due. I'm not sure how much of it you see over there, but Native American mysticism is all over the place around here, and it can be really cool and really insulting at the same time.

Even so. African mythology. Yes. Oh yes. I want it muchly.
