Mythology project?
I figured it was common knowledge (among the wiki-using crowd, at least); I've been blowing up the RecentChanges page for months.

Taketh thou a Look.

It looketh good, LC. For my own project (were I to update it), I'm now of the opinion that I'd put all deities in a group on the same page. I don't think there's enough info that they each need separate pages, which if you did it that way, would save you needing a separate template AND a separate page for each deity.

Why didn't you name the Greek gods Olympians for more common convention? Is that a Scion thing? You have sparked my interest in Scion, though who knows if I'd ever find time for that--I rarely have time for the games I already play and have planned.

I started out with all deities on mass pages grouped by pantheon. I undertook (correction: "am undertaking") the long process of separating the gods out so that they each have their own pages for several reasons: it makes it easier for me to link stuff, it makes it easier for me to post art for each deity, and it gives me a space to put down specific information regarding each deity (this last bit is a very long process: see Tezcatlipoca and Susanoo-- they're the only two that are finished at this time.)

I didn't call the Greek gods "Olympians" because this group includes Hades and Persephone, who are not Olympians because they don't dwell on Olympus. Scion calls them the Dodekatheon (which is odd, because there are thirteen, but "Triskadekatheon" sounds really weird I guess), which is what I'm running with. (I did change the Aztec pantheon's name from a rather ridiculous made-up word to "Teotl", which at least is actually a word from the Aztec language. But that's my only big revision of that sort.)

I'll be glad to answer Scion-related questions if you have any, or point you to other online resources about the game. I plan to run one eventually, but I've got so much on my plate currently that it may be a long time before I can.
