I voted for African, then Mesoamerican, then Mesopotamic if I were to rank them. Though instead of Mesopotamic I’d also be happy with other options. Celtic and Slavic could be very fun. Wonder if the latter would get compared to Witcher a lot, though.
Polynesian mythologies could be fun too, quickly googled to see that Māori have a family tree of gods and such as well. After all, isn’t Mana that we all know from RPG games taken from Māori language?
Sumerian, because it’s still ancient and has so much lore to explore. Aztecs just seems ‘eh’.
Followed by probably Japanese, tons of stories and myth things to do with that.
I feel like they’re making picking it because it’s simply top of the list, not because there aren’t equal choices.
I would personally pick Aztec and Japanese ones, to me makes sense in the AoM world where the Continent of Mu would be as real as Atlantis. Could also more to this idea like Polynesian tho, never gonna said “no” to more content.
I’ve already thought about it. I can imagine having judaism, christianism and islam in a single ‘‘monotheistic culture’’, each one with their own version of God. Minor gods would be angels and demons. Sadly, I don’t think it’s gonna happen.
The traditional of the Yoruba features a lot of Orishas (Gods) in the traditional religion of the Yoruba. There’s several hundreds of them. Just a few after a quick internet search based on the German Wikipedia article on that topic: Orisha – Wikipedia :
North American. I’d like to see the Lakota and Haudenosaunee get included. They’re in AoE3, let’s see a more fantastical take on them.
(Spoiler: the Lakota in the Divine Edition have a lot of unique and funny things going on.)
