If your character is connected to historical or mythological figures, or possess historical/mythological artifacts, mention it here. This is like The Vine Universe, only focusing more on history & legend.

Hades is NOT a total d-bag, I feel that needs mentioning... xD 
 
Don't know whether it should be referenced here or what, but I think that, to account for all the underworlds and afterlives in all the different religions, it should be a rule that a person goes to the afterlife that they truly believe in (which is why most people end up in Hell nowadays, rather than Hades, etc.)

#18 Posted by ~The Wanderer~ (34406 posts) - - Show Bio
@-Eclipse-: LOL. 
I'm not sure if that system, if done strictly, would work very well. (Where would atheists or agnostics go for instance?)  
Instead, how about...afterlife rules or deities can claim people (hence, if Hades claims a person, then that person will go to the Greek Underworld at death), but they tend to prefer only to claim those who worship or believe in them to some degree (less inter-pantheon rivalries/conflicts that way). This system would allow more malleability, I think.

You know how long it will take me mention all the historical junk related to my characters.

First off, I think we need a section for Lovecraftian Mythology. It is called the Cthulhu Mythos, and is recognized among all Lovecraft fans.

It would be best to talk with Arrow over the whole afterlife thing, I know alot of Gods of the afterlife gave Arrow some of their power so im not sure how it affects things, but I do agree people should go to which afterlife best relates to their character.

@~The Wanderer~:
Great Idea Wando. Can I add that Arrow turned Hades insane for a small period of time... I have a whole load of things to do with Christian lore, but never sure how people would react to my ideas and don't really think that they are Vine wide... I did have it that Christianity (God and Angels) went to war with the other gods to secure their rule over earth... allowing the older religions to stay. In my Bio I also stated that Arrow gave God the idea for an army of angels...But thats nothing big.  
 
What else is there to add There is no cake.
