    'Aight.

    I mean, they're not actually Celtic. They're just based on characters from Celtic mythology.

    So, makes sense.

    Also inb4 we have a pantheon for each Neith skin in the game
    Preferred Gods:
    Aphrodite, Awilix, BAEllona, Da Ji, Discordia, Fenrir, Janus, Jing Bae, Nike, Nox, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    We need more kawaii skins!

    They'll be in Celtic


    EDIT: Ok so... I just rushed to say "Celtic" before actually reading the article. I thought this thread was an inquiry.



    Anyways, while I think the addition of Arthur & Merlin is awesome, putting them in their own pantheon would be somewhat dissapointing, especially since it wouldn't be a real pantheon and they could easily be taken for Celtic. Also, I don't think that "Arthurian" would have enough "gods" to constitute for its own pantheon. It's even more baffling when the characters themselves aren't real gods. More so, during the god lineup promo video, they only mentioned "new pantheon" once, implying that there'll be only one (which will probably be African). When Arthur & Merlin were brought up, nothing about a new pantheon was mentioned. So I hope the article is wrong.



    Speaking of which, the whole article seems weird. The writer just rushed to proclaim that the upcoming characters will be part of their own pantheon, without citing a source. And the "interview" consisted of only one question. What's interesting though is, assuming that there won't be an Arthurian pantheon, that AJ didn't bother to correct the interview, either because he didn't care too much or there is in fact gonna be an Arthu... you know what... I don't want to say it.



    Worst case scenario and it is gonna happen, I hope that in the future they realize how BS an "Arthurian" pantheon is and merge it together with Celtic.

    Hmm so i didn't hear wrong during the live show, then the pantheon name is Avalon. I wasn't sure if they were saying Avalon will "be" a pantheon or "join" the pantheon

    Good, they're in this uncomfortable grey area where they have Celtic roots but were heavily Christianized later on. Without an Abrahamic panth to house them, this is a reasonable spot.

    HR seems to be going on the version of the mythos that's more rooted in post-Galfridian (read: extremely Christianized) tradition, which means the Celtic influence is much more scant. Putting the aardvark and his court in the Celtic pantheon is like listing Aphrodite as a Mesopotamian god because she probably evolved from Ishtar. It makes no fucking sense.

    And that's coming from the guy who believes that Celtic should be split into 3 different pantheons.


    You can find discrepancies in everything:
    Artio and Cernunnos are not part of the Tuatha de Tanann, so they shouldn't be in the Celtic pantheon.

    ||||
    Guan Yu actually existed as opposed to all the other characters so he's not eligible to be in the game.
    ||||
    SWK came out of a novel, not mythology.
    ||||
    "Thoth" is the Greek name for Djehuti, therefore an injustice to ibis-headed god.
    ||||
    Speaking of Thoth, he should have a baboon head, not that of an ibis.
    ||||
    Why is Apollo using a pair of pistols and not his golden bow. He's a hunter after all so was it so hard to do it?
    ||||
    Kuzenbo lived in a Chinese river, so shouldn't he be in the Chinese pantheon?
    ||||
    Awilix isn't really a moon goddess, is she?
    ||||
    Fafnir doesn't transform into a dragon at will. He was permanantly transformed into one due to a curse. Therefore, his depiction in the game is inaccurate.
    ||||
    "Polynesian" is not one mythology, but many. It comprises Hawaii, Samoa, Rapa Nui and other locations. Therefore, "Polynesian" is an inaccurate depiction in the game. Also, the word "Polynesian" comes from Greek, meaning "many islands". Therefore, it is an injustice to the region at whole because it uses a language to apply to an area that has no connection to said language.
    ||||
    the Roman pantheon is basically the same as the Greek. Therefore, it shouldn't be included.
    ||||
    Vulcan is using thermobarid missiles in a time where the toilet wasn't invented yet. So why isn't there a god with a frickin' rifle yet if anachronism isn't an issue?
    ||||
    The Slavs are basically second-rate Greeks.
    ||||
    Voodoo isn't a real pantheon because it's too modern. Also, it's too small to warrant its inclusion in the game and therefore should be part of the African pantheon.


    I'm kinda exaggerating with all these examples. But the point is that everyone has their own perception of what is the ideal state that Smite could be in.



    It doesn't need to be 100% accurate. More so, nobody cares that much about it. It's ok to stretch. Because if the devs didn't stretch, then probably half of the game wouldn't be possible. They took obscure gods such as Kuzenbo and Artio and made fully playable characters out of them. As long as the theme remains within the boundaries of its respective lore, then it's acceptable. It's not like any of these gods are carrying an RPG because their lore somewhat justifies them using one, because that just wouldn't make in sense.



    But in the end, just have fun! It's just a game.
