->"Have you thought about what it means to be a god? It means you give up your mortal existence to become a meme: something that lives forever in people's minds, like the tune of a nursery rhyme. It means that everyone gets to re-create you in their own minds. You barely have your own identity any more. Instead, you're a thousand different aspects of what people need you to be. And everyone wants something different from you. Nothing is fixed, nothing is stable."
-->-- [[spoiler: Jesus]], "deleted scene" from ''Literature/AmericanGods'', included in the 10th Anniversary Edition.

->The idea of Gods empowered (and possibly created) by worship naturally has a strong attraction for modern fantasy fans: It takes the prevailing social order of democracy and projects it into the plane of divine metaphysics. Instead of Homeric warrior-aristocrats, Middle Eastern despots or Chinese courtier-bureaucrats, Gods become politicians in the sky, dependent on their base, hustling for support. This premise is appropriate and meaningful for modern fantasy. It just doesn't happen to be the premise of {{TabletopGame/Scion}}.
