  • Hey there Matt. I was wondering if by any chance you possibly had a discord? If you did, I'd like it if we could add each other, if you're fine with that of course.

    The mythology profiles on VBW are all unreliable garbage without exception. To fix this, we need:

    1. Citations for every supposed feat, description, or ability in mythology, from reputable sources on ancient or modern mythologies (primary sources, of course, being the best). If we're quoting primary mythological texts (such as the Iliad) directly, then the specific translator of the text should be noted as well. The citations should obviously have links.

    2. Detailed explanations for the cosmology of each mythology. I don't want to have to hear about 4-B Norns or the High 1-B Hindu-Buddhist multiverse without a proper explanation as to why.

    3. The separation of "normal" and "abnormal" conceptions of various mythological figures into multiple keys (e.g. no conflating Hellenistic Dionysus with Orphic Dionysus and Dionysiaca Dionysus, as the character profile does)

    4. A standard of dealing with the various names, titles, and epithets of mythological figures. In ancient cultures, such names, titles, and epithets were extremely important theologically speaking.

    5. A standard of dealing with various "high-concept" descriptions of deities (I.e. descriptions of them being "exalted beyond the heavens" or "infinite and eternal" or "spaceless and timeless"). Should we take them at face-value (as the ancient cultures most likely did, for the most part), or should we consider them as mostly hyperbole, or should be try to "contextualize" them in a modern philosophical context?

    6. A standard of dealing with ancient theologies, especially for mythologies without a specific "canon" (like classical mythology). I don't understand why we should have to consider Amaterasu as equal to Amenominakanushi based on an unnamed and unsourced old Japanese religious text that doesn't even seem to exist.

  • I read Zach saying that you said that Hinduism has an infinitely layered multiverse. Is this true that you said that? Is it true that Hinduism has a High 1-B multiverse? Do you have any sources for such a cosmology?

  • About Orphic Zeus can Zeus stops time if he wants because Orphic Mythology states that Zeus have Unlimitted Power. So I would like to know if Orphic's Zeus power is beyond time. I don't know if Zeus ate Chronos and Ananke tho. Thank you.

  • Just to let you know i agree with your stance on how the wiki is in it's current state. It's like everyone and their mother have wanked verses, abilities and so on and so on. Almost as if it's way too easy to exploit shit, hell everyone has some crazy type of hax like type 800, 1000th Dimensional super conceptual manipulation or we accept one or two silly statements without context that bump characters from 5-B all the way up to 2-A. Now Fate isn't the only verse with this issue, theres a bunch of verses that use arguments like that to wank. I actually think the only reason that 2-A was even accepted is because this place has become very lenient regarding statements and such.

    • People still ignore that and will continue to ignore that for whatever reason. Another thing I dislike, mob mentality. I.E, someone labeling something as an outlier and all of a sudden the enitre fandom throws shade and then gang up on you. Also for the record, Fate CCC has yet to even be officially translated, as far as I'm aware that makes it unreliable untill someone from this wiki plays the game who isn't biased and is a good translator. But I wont make a CRT since I don't feel like dealing with the fandom.

    • There's nothing wrong with large upgrades, as long as they have the feats/statements, and n contradictions.
