This week John and Anne continued the ramp up for Domain Blessings. There are a few remaining Aspect Blessings that are still need some debate, but those are being set aside for the moment to focus on Domains. Anne has translated Domain Blessings from little notes and stat blocks to full descriptions. Now they are going to review, debate, tear apart, reassemble, and finalize those blessings.
Which brings me to one of this week's questions, "Can I spoil some Domain Blessings?" Unfortunately the review hasn't started yet, so there are no Domain Blessings to share. I will be asking about them for the next several weeks, so keep a lookout for spoilers in the future.
Anne and John have also met with the artists regarding a relaunch of the website. Once Hero's Journey launches, there will be a relaunch of the site and a change in focus. It is still in the early stages, but the new site will focus more on being a resource for running Hero's Journey games, this will include mythological information. We're pretty excited about it.
So onto the other questions from this week.
Let's say a Hero has armor for their Divine Favor, like Heracles' Nemean Lion skin. Would that be a Protective Weapon or an Adornment?
Samudra, you were correct with your gut instinct. Armour that you wear would be and adornment. A good way to think about it is "If you wield it, it is a weapon. If you wear it, it's an adornment." I expect that there is a crazy edge case here, but I think that the above statement should clear up almost every instance.
Attribute mentions 'condition within the spectrum of human possibilities'. Does that mean my idea of a Third Eye that boosts the Spiritual Domain is out?
That could be up for rephrasing. I'm not writing it, but it might wind up being closer to something like "...condition within the spectrum of possibility appropriate to your tier". So as a Mortal you are stuck with features belonging to the mortal realm, so a third eye would be out. But, you could potentially make an argument for a third eye or other non-human features at high-level Immortal, but it'd probably most appropriate at the Divine tier.
That's it for this week, Have a great weekend!
