    Where the Christians at?

    I know hirez have previously stated that they will not add Abrahamic figures because there are no stores of them fighting one another. But seriously, why the hell not? Have they not even considered the Archangels? Do they not realize that the book of Revelations literally talks about a war in heaven led by the Archangels? Michael is even called "a mighty warrior" so they seem like they'd be pretty good fighters to me. Plus, it'd just be fecking fun to have Christian figures in. Even if you find the lore of them uninteresting for a fighting game, does it really matter? I'd say it just gives you a better slate to draw on.

    I asked HiRezIsaiah in the official ask thread if angels and demons were up for grabs, and he didn't say no.

    I feel that deep down everyone (including HiRez themselves) knows that's nothing more than a political correct answer, so arguing that point has no practical value. The tripartite of religions is a Pandora's box.

    Well said. Even though I am actually a very religious gamer (though I fuck, cuss etc)... Adding Any Reference of the most widely accepted religion would have very serious ramifications politically. There are too many details that are left to interpretation and arguments would go haywire.

    As long as they don't add Mr. C., they can get away with a lot. The Devil and various angels and demons have featured in numerous works of fiction, and they continue to be without anyone getting bombed. Mostly demons, yeah; but the same crowd that'll freak over them will comprise those freaking out over angels. At the end of the day, HR just needs to avoid the big man/men, and then they'll only be pissing off angry Christian soccer moms, old pedophiles, and eccentric YouTubers who don't understand science.

    One religion has a word specifically denoting for the criticism of it, every other religion does not.

    Didn't Lucifer literally gather up a bunch of his mates and go confront God himself?

    Which is why he and his buds ended up being sent down to Hell for all eternity?
    Preferred Gods:
    Aphrodite, Awilix, BAEllona, Da Ji, Hel, Janus, Jing Wei, Nike, Nox, Serqet, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    We need more kawaii skins!

    The concept of blasphemy is not exclusive to Christianity and Islam.

    And they suck because...why? They're no more or less valid than any other.
