I wish I could tell you what the King in Yellow is, but i'm afraid you've lost me. Unless we're talking about Apollo.

Mostly, we're talking about pantheons that real-world faith has been built around, in the past. I'm afraid I'm not familiar with Bob or flying spaghetti. Based on their names, though, I'm guessing I'm going to have to turn those down.

Lol I just hit upon an idea after looking through the information for this story and the interest thread as a whole.  I'm not sure how I'm going to go about it, but I had the thought that I COULD try my hand at Ares, the God of War from the Greek Pantheon.  I have a couple of other ideas if you'd rather I pick someone else or my idea doesn't pan out or whatever, but here was my thought which had me chuckling a little bit if nothing else.

Also hey Fury, nice to see you again lol.

Anyway, my idea is that the Greeks of old had everything more or less right when they started coming up with their stories for Ares and what they represented, except they got one little detail wrong.  Ares was not the muscle bound ape they thought he was, but rather he was really a she.  Oh she was definitely still the ultimate warrior of blood, murder, and chaos during every great conflict throughout history, but the chauvinistic pigs of that ere just couldn't relate war with a woman so they purposely got her gender wrong to suit their own egos.  She didn't like that very much as you'd expect, but damage done, no way to change it now despite having stirred up certain passions in a young man from Troy when he kidnapped a certain woman from her Greek husband.  'Cough' lol.  Anyway, my idea for a genderbent Ares was meant to be funny but I had every intention of playing seriously otherwise.  Just thought I'd see what you guys thought before getting too far into this.

Kiric - Excellent! Let me know if you have any further questions.

Vergil - Hey, there, good to see you again. I have no problem with you playing a genderbent Ares, particularly since there's a plausible reason. For the record, I'm alright with genderbent anything, too, since vessels are just vessels. However you want to pull it off s fine by me, within reason. A lot of the gods shifted genders in some mythos anyhow, so it shouldn't be too much problem.

Glad to hear it.  Thank you kindly Fury, truly.  ;D  I'll get a character sheet going in a bit then.

I HAVE been having a bit of a fixation on futas and what have you lately, and since gods can shapeshift and transform as they please for the most part, I was entertaining the idea that Ares can go either way as she likes if that'd be alright with you.  Her vessel doesn't have to be able to do so, but while she was banging Aphrodite that might have been something she enjoyed doing and perhaps even receiving, but if you'd rather I keep Ares either male or female, not some weird combination of the two whenever she chose, I can do that too.  It doesn't hurt to ask though right?  ;D

Anyway, beyond that strange fetish of mine lately, I'll stick to the regular stuff we all know about the God of War....minus the stuff with Kratos murdering my girl anyway lol.

Uhm... Shapeshifting power is going to be something that I'm going to say would have to remain in reserve for the first little bit. I don't mind her being futa, male, female or any other designation, but it won't be something she can shift at will to begin with. That's the kind of power they'd hope to get back up to, when the time comes.

Aye, and then Vergil steals the thunder out from under me. I was going to portray the Coyote as taking a two-spirit (in a far more literal... spirit) host. Intersex. I'm talking about intersex.

Speaking of which:

Fair enough. I think I was thinking Fox, too. So - alright, no problem. Now, I know every band has its own set of legends, and while some crossover, others do not. I have no problem if you want to play something specific to a particular band's lore, but I'm not going to hold you to any such specifics for that. That's a lot of in-depth study to do if you're not already familiar with it.

I've got an exceptional amount of reading to do, but as a rough concept I imagine the Coyote as being nominally the same deity across all tribes. He is, after all, the teller of the First Lie; it's hardly a stretch to imagine she might very well spin stories that are separate-- or even contradictory-- among the many peoples. Y'know.

For a goof.

Lol sorry Oversight, but at least I got the answer to our mutual question.  ;D  But thank you Fury, and again I'll get a sheet going here shortly, just in the middle of a game and trying to finish that up before I get to work on this.  I'll keep her futa then, I tend to prefer dicks with no balls on my girls IF I go futa anyway, just in case you're curious.

Also, it's nice to meet you Oversight.  ;D

Pleasure to meet you too, Vergil. Got to admit, though, shapeshifting was gonna be the Coyote's ascendant power. Gettin' real tired of having all my greatest hits spilt on the second page of an interest check... this is a joke i am joking about being tired of this i think it's hilarious

What the hey, might as well get this out here while all my good secrets are bein' spilt. Calling Grace Jones as the Coyote's faceclaim. Hoping no one is offended that I'm not representing a First Nation god with someone of that descent and I'm perfectly willing to change it, but just look at that picture. It's perfect.

My Lord and Leige,

So, as far as the shapeshifting, I think that would be a secondary power at the very least, and limited to the genitalia and the appropriate accompanying reproductive cycle. I won't enforce it at that juncture, but I wouldn't mind seeing some self-imposed limitations. Full-on form shifting would have to wait until much closer to the third stage, nearly ascension.

To that end, you should all know there is at least one other person who came to me with a character with the intent to shape and gender shift. I have no limitations on this, as I've said in the past, gender shift is actually fairly common in godly mythos, so I have no problem having an abundance of those with the ability, but I would like to let you all know so that you have the best chance to choose the best characters for yourselves.

Oversight,

I can completely see there being a plethora of misdirecting stories between bands and tribes. That makes perfect sense and is completely within the Coyote's wheelhouse. Go nuts.

Edit: Faceclaim - That does look particularly sassy. It's alright, when you consider what the continent has come to since the time Coyote was in any real power, you could justify just about any descent. And wouldn't it just be like a trickster to deliberately choose outside of expectations just for the ability to be contrary and mock those expectations?

The faceclaim is noted and I will update that in the world building thread momentarily.

I almost went with Hathor of Egyptian pantheon fame, but having a cow as her animal of choice just seemed bleh for this group for some reason lol.  Sure she's a Goddess of Joy, Fertility, Childbirth, etc, and she's even known to throw in sex, music, and other things along those lines, but that cow bit just didn't work with me.

Anyway, again thank you for clearing that up Fury and lol nice Oversight, and again it's nice to meet ya.  Anyway, gonna get my sheet started and posted here, just gonna look for a good faceclaim for my Ares.  Might go with whoever played in Live, Die, Repeat, can't even think of her character name truth be told.  Damn, but she was pretty hot and built like a damn tank in a very hot, sexy way lol.

Kiric - Matt Bomer is quite possibly one of my favourites ever. imjessme was kind enough to use him as a faceclaim for me in another story, too, I just can't get enough of him. He's totally reserved for you. Poor Matt doesn't know what we're getting him into.

Kokaine - Rochelle Aytes is reserved for you, and I will make sure to update that if you decide to change it.

Vergil - I dunno Live, Die Repeat, and it doesn't seem to be showing up in IMDb, either. Sorry. But once you have a name, I'll be glad to hold it in reserve for you.

Perhaps, but there's a difference between simply being able to shapeshift and actually being good at it.  ;D  Most of us might be able to do it, but that doesn't mean we find it easy.  Just something to consider.  ;D

Also, I'm sure no one has forgotten, shapeshifting might be the tool, but what is its purpose?

As always, if anyone has any questions or wants any sort of input as far as character creation goes, PM is probably the best way to keep it private until it's time to be unveiled.

White Collar, isn't that the show where one of the characters is a professional conartist?  Lol funny you should mention that Kiric, because the woman I'm putting together for my Ares is a black market arms dealer.
