* BigScrewedUpFamily: Many of the Tuatha to spouses with the Fomorians in 2E, and battlelines were drawn in the past because it. The previews sum up the first Titanomachy as the Worst Family Reunion Ever.

!'''Atzlanti'''

The Aztec pantheon, who maintain the continuity of all existence through blood sacrifice - indeed, they ''need'' blood in order to work their magics. They are aggressive, violent and capricious... but no-one can deny that the cycles of the world keep going.

going, nor (in 2E) their dedication to honoring their own obligations to their worshipers in turn.

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: They're the Aztecs, what did you expect?
* BenevolentBoss: In 2E; people who make the proper sacrifices to them are, in the view of the Teotl, deserving of their patronage in response, and all of them are stated to actually just plain like at least some humans. Notably, their Signature Purview, is all about both accepting ''and repaying'' sacrifice.
* DarkIsNotEvil: In stark contrast to 1E, the 2E representation of the Teotl are sometimes capricious but ultimately well-intentioned sorts who simply need sacrifice in order to live and keep the sun going. They aren't ''nice'', but they're given over to compassion and ''especially'' altruism, which is represented by their Sacrifice Virtue.
* DontFearTheReaper: Mictecacihuatl, in 2E; she's a stately, kindly sort who is actively friendly towards humans and sponsors the Day of the Dead.
* GodsNeedPrayerBadly: Sacrifice especially.




!'''Dodekatheon'''

to:

!'''Dodekatheon'''
!'''Dodekatheon / Theoi'''


Added DiffLines:

* BigScrewedUpFamily: As pointed out in 2E, they're all interrelated to each other and most of their Titans. This means they are simultaneously the most fractious and most unified of all the pantheons.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Zeus, in 2E. He's lustful, but he's also the god of law and rulership, and he's an extremely canny and farsighted politician who is living proof of ScrewDestiny; he knows the Theoi are fated to have their kind deposed by his children, [[LoopholeAbuse so he makes sure his children at least don't hate him enough to invoke it]].


Added DiffLines:

* AllTrollsAreDifferent: The Fomorians are rewritten to be closer to their mythic origins in 2E, being primal and ugly demi-deities of the deep places who are at least partially interrelated to the de Danaan (and in fact call themselves the de ''Domnu'' to emphasize that they're NotSoDifferent).
* MagicMusic: The main source of improvised Tuatha Purviews in 2E is music and poetry that moves the very elements themselves. Fomorians prefer a far simpler type that relies on the symbolism of their missing body parts.

* EldritchAbomination: Many of the Avatars, but the landscape they're usually encountered it takes the cake-because the Avatars are ''[[GeniusLoci part]]'' of it.

%%* TheOldGods
%%* OurTitansAreDifferent
* TheOldGods: The Primordials came before the Gods, and while they might not have any authority over their progeny, a single Primordial is capable of taking on an entire pantheon.
* OurTitansAreDifferent: The Primordials/Greater Titans are {{elemental embodiment}}s of the fundamental concepts of existence, typically in the form of GeniusLoci. They've spawned Titans/Avatars, {{anthropomorphic personification}}s who represent aspects of those concepts.



* TimeyWhimeyBall: Pretty much literally-Zvran embodies the process of time, but not ''causality'', making it a living temporal anomaly, and any place under its influence becomes laced with glitches in time.

* EldritchAbomination: Many of the Avatars, but the landscape they're usually encountered it takes the cake-because the Avatars are ''[[GeniusLoci part]]'' of it.
* FightingAShadow: Subverted. The Avatars may draw power from and embody a part of their Greater Titan's concept, but they have separate minds-the Primordial itself is barely sentient and unaware of anything except what the Avatars tell it to do.
* GeniusLoci: The Greater Titans/Primordials have minds of their own, just not very malign ones-all they know is that there's a lot more room to stretch.
*
HumanoidAbomination: Several of them.the Avatars look like gods, but a single glance at their statistics (which are ''guidelines'') should tell you how alien they are.



Titan of Light.

to:

Titan of Light.
Light, and the only one with a single avatar: Aten, the egomaniacal Avatar of the Sun who devoured all his compatriots to become the sole owner of power.



%%* LightIsNotGood

to:

%%* LightIsNotGood* LightIsNotGood: Akhenaten embodies all brilliance. ''Especially'' that of the Desert Sun, making its very grounds even more a DeathWorld than other Greater Titans.



** Prometheus is also pretty nice-he's just a MadScientist who doesn't comprehend how destructive his inventions truly are.



%%* EvilIsBurningHot

to:

%%* EvilIsBurningHot* EvilIsBurningHot: Well, more like Muspelheim's Avatars are Evil and they are Burning Hot by nature, but yeah, none of the Avatars are safe for humanity-not even Prometheus.



* ForScience: The reason Prometheus is still a Titan and not a god despite having a soft spot for humanity-he embodies controlled fire, but only ''physically'' controlled; he doesn't understand ethics or long-term consequences, to the point where he finds the idea of nuclear war to be lovely entertainment, not realizing it would eradicate the species he respects.



* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Thanks to his status amongst mortals as the personification of resistance against tyranny, Prometheus is this.

to:

this. In truth, he's the personification of ''scientific advancement'' (the capacity to control fire and the "fire" of invention), [[MadScientist and is completely alien to the idea of ethics]].



%%* MakingASplash

to:

%%* MakingASplash* MakingASplash: By default, as the Drowned Road ''is'' water in all its forms, so all its children have watery aspects.



* NatureIsNotNice: The Greater Titan that personifies that simple truth.



%%* PrimordialChaos
* YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm: As the incarnation of Chaos, Hundun cannot be defined by mere Gods.

to:

%%* PrimordialChaos
* PrimordialChaos: Hundun ''is'' this, the primal void of everything that could not be stabilized to be properly created. Notably, every being from Hundun or in alliance with it can Favor ''any'' Purview except its banned ones, because Hundun is all of those things by nature.
* YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm: As the incarnation of Chaos, Hundun cannot be defined by mere Gods.
Gods. This is actually an advantage against it, as it doesn't have Avatars (who impose definition by their existence) so it has to make do with proxies, who can be killed without endangering the world.



* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Its favored form is a snake.

to:

* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Its favored form is a snake.
snake. This makes it the only Greater Titan with an actual body.



%%* TimeMaster

to:

%%* TimeMaster
* TimeMaster: Its Avatars and any Aeonic creature it spawns.
* TimeyWhimeyBall: Pretty much literally-Zvran embodies the process of time, but not ''causality'', making it a living temporal anomaly, and any place under its influence becomes laced with glitches in time.
