As a side thought, wouldn`t Eros fit as an Immortal worshipped by the Duchy in the Mountains? (the name escapes me)

Duchy of the Peaks. Hehe, yeah maybe. Although Bacchus seems even more appropriate for their lifestyle... :twisted:

You know, Hav, I would think that the very spot where the (a?) God of Time were killed would exhibit some very strange, unique properties....

I would definiately have to second that, if nothing else eddies in the timestream. Probably areas that cause time displacement.

Indeed. My idea is that this is linked to the creation of the Well of Souls...

Actually, the Duchy of the Peaks can be seen as a fairly "Greek" land.

I connect The Pygmalion to the Duchy of the Peaks as well.

Do we have any gods already associated with love, sexuality etc that might fit with the Duchy of the Peaks?

Phellia (goddess of love, magic, and vanity) seems appropriate.

I'd add Baldin, Calelrin, Fronaus, Hersh, and Volketh to their pantheon.

Phellia: Largest temple, openly celebrated, patron of lovers, beauty, and magic that facilitates that.
Baldin: Phellia's son, patron of musicians.
Hersh: God of gamblers and gambling-houses, prevalent in the Duchy of the Peaks.
Calelrin: God of dark secrets, patron of torture pits beneath the city streets, places where unwary patrons of the brothels and gambling-houses may disappear.
Volketh: God of assassins, a secret order that eliminates occupying forces or disappears them into Calelrin's pits.
Fronaus: God of law and nobles, ensures that contracts (for example, slavers' contracts and agreements to pay money to brothels and gambling-houses) are upheld.

I think that, considering the Greek + psychology theme, we have to add also Thanatos (Eros & Thanatos).

Most of this thread has been about Thanatos and his possible relation to the Temple of Id.

Gypsy saying from FFC: "Rider, Jewel and Marsh are a Doomful Threesome (see Temple of the ID)"
Can anybody explain this to a thick guy like me?

The Jewel should probably be a reference to the Orange Jewel held in a kind of amphitheatre in the town grown over the ancient ruins of the Temple of Id the other Gypsy saying from FFC: "The Jewel of the Sun will pierce any Darkness" but I'm not 100% sure about the rest.
Is there a reference to the Blue Rider? is he involved with the Temple of Id?
