Hewdamia is deep, I had to read this to understand what was going at the end of the 1st era of Hewdamia. A hypertexting of some these longer posts could be fun, but you have everything fairly well cross referenced. I found my self still not really getting a feel for these people after this read, I got a lot of facts but not a real tone. They seem a little rough, polar in their views, a little withdrawn into their own lives and to have under a current of violent and judgemental behaviors. A slice of life piece might be nice. But I glad this piece is here, it helps to understand the other post, so thanks.
I like all the gods, and it is really complete mythos. I am big fan of gods that exisist whether you want them to or not.
But I am curious about the tone and perspective you use when you write these posts. Did you have a narrator in mind or a source text? You aren't really writting from a third person meta-game stand point, but it is not academic write up either. We spoke brieflly about this before i know, perhaps this post-modern idea of needing to know or wanting to know who wrote something is just that. In the Torah there isn't a narrator, and perhaps people didn't ask that questions of there myths. Yet what is your take on it?
I found the last bit about the war of the god hurried and undetailed. I also never got a day in the life idea about what is was like to be a mortal in the 1st era. I know the true "modern" mortals were around until the gods fully equipped them, but we learn little about the people of the time.
Again a nice story of the gods.
"There is always a bigger fish" That has to be one of the most pain full lines ever heard by a room full of fan boys.
I love my speculative flora and fauna subs, while an okay idea that may not need more info. I feel that a few notes about the life cycle of the Gar Eel would only improve this sub, make character interaction with it more meaningful and make it more likely to be used by a roving GM.
