New Pledge Option: Add New Gods!

Posted by Anne Ruthven (Creator)

Hi, everyone!  Last update for a little while.  We promise.

By popular demand, we've added a new pledge option to the project: you can now pledge in order to have us add a new god to the game who was otherwise not appearing in the core rulebook.  This can be any god you like from any of the four pantheons the game releases with (Norse, Greek, Hindu and Egyptian), provided that they really exist somewhere in mythology.

For those who didn't catch the announcement, these are the gods already appearing in Hero's Journey:

Egyptian:  Anubis, Bastet, Hathor, Horus, Isis, Osiris, Ptah, Ra, Set, Thoth
Greek: Aphrodite, Apollo, Artemis, Athena, Demeter, Dionysus, Hades, Hera, Hermes, Poseidon, Zeus
Hindu: Brahma, Ganesha, Indra, Kali, Lakshmi, Parvati, Sarasvati, Shiva, Surya, Vishnu, Yama
Norse:  Baldur, Freya, Freyr, Frigg, Hel, Loki, Odin, Thor

Adding gods is super limited - we can only afford to do so many thanks to time constraints for writing and pagecount constraints for printers, so they're capped at a maximum of four each for pledge levels or add-ons.  If a god you love isn't in there yet, now's your moment to dive in and make it happen!

      Nyx is one of my favorite goddesses in the Greek pantheon. If I had the money to donate up to that level, I certainly would.

      Nyx is a great idea - she is absolutely worthy of being a goddess included in Hero's Journey. While we can't promise she'll appear in the beginning lineup - that's up to backers! - we will definitely be looking to release expanded pantheons with more gods as future supplements to Hero's Journey after the core rulebook has come out.

      If I could make a suggestion to add to the Greek line-up it would be Nyx, Goddess of the night. She has been known to frighten Zeus, as found in the Iliad, and that could be used as a great foil to some of the other gods in the Greek pantheon as well.
