Within this portion of the thread, I’ll attempt to provide a better summary of the Slavic mythology.
Slavic countries (Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Macedonia, Montenegro, Belgium, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine) result in the largest ethnic number of Europe of ~235 million people, adopted through the Latin (190) and Germanic (180). With regards to the free PC gaming marked, they create an enormous area of the european playerbase. Gabe Newell of Valve has mentioned that Steam is targetted mainly for the playerbase of Russia and Germany. With regards to the MOBA market, an example is Dota 2: Ukraine has got the second greatest playerbase, that’s just 1% underneath the US. So yes, there are plenty of players that may be introduced into Smite, utilizing their culture.
All the countries above share exactly the same mythology, which makes it a really different and complex one. For any future pantheon, the Slavic will be a sensible choice when demographic based profit is worried.
The Slavic mythology is really a universal religion which was across the majority of Eastern Europe. It’s a early mythology (believed up to now so far as seventh century BC). Through the years it’s adopted aspects of many cultures, including Indian, Mongol, Egyptian, Persian, Norse, Sami, Baltic and Greek. Many Slavic gods have Persian and Egyptian names (just like a sun god Khors, who’s name originates from the the Persian word Hors, meaning Sun). They likewise have adopted many gods of various cultures (for instance you will find Agni, Devana (Diana), Woda (Odin) and Hela (Hel)) and lots of religious concepts (like gods getting multiple physical forms, in the Hindu religion). As a result, the Slavic mythology has among the greatest figures of gods, even when many of them are actually forgotten.
While Slavic mythology shares some similarities along with other European mythologies, there are several key variations. Scince the field of the living may be the earth and sky, there aren’t any temples and all sorts of rituals ware performed underneath the obvious sky. The field of the living is ruled by Perun, however in some regions Svarog is worshipped in the place. The underworld may be the arena of Veles, it’s a eco-friendly field with endless spring. With respect to the method of existence, bad people ware frequently changed into monsters (including Vampires and Werewolfs) or imprisonned under ponds or subterranean water streams. Probably the most severe punishment from the gods had been switched to stone.
While the majority of the greater mythology (the gods as well as their deeds) was lost within the christianisation, the majority of the lower mythology regarding heroes, plants, herbs, spirits and monsters is preserved. Those are the Rusalki (Sirens), Vampirs, Volkodlaks (Warewolf), Zarptici (Firebird), Zmey (Dragon), Samodivi (Fairies), Ispolins (Giants), Striga to mention a couple of. Similary towards the Celtic mythology a really big a part of their pantheon includes human heroes (Ilya-Muromets and Svyatogor, Burislav, Vasilisa, the bugatirs…). For just about any fans from the game or book series "The Witcher", it is dependant on spirits, creatures, monsters and herbs in the Slavic mythology and maybe it’s a good referance to how these creatures ware immagined.

TOP 5 PANTHEONS THAT NEED TO BE IN SMITE
Collin: tbh I just want Jesus,The Healer of Man. \nPassive:Crucifixion.

This ability is doubled on his Blessed Team mate.\nThird:Jesus summons a wall of angels to protect his team mate for 1/1.2/1.4/1.6/1.8/2s\nUltimate:Gabriel decends from the heavens to blow his horn giving Jesus and his team increased Movement speed and Attack speed.

Saito Hiraga: They should at least make a Zeus skin that makes him look like Jesus lol
Roger H2O: Lovecraft gods? They are cute kappa.
Bloody Rose: We need Cthulhu up in this bitch😆
Jennifer Silva: Bloody Rose HA LOLS
ChaotiX: Fuck Smite man, they need to start working on Smite II, where there are ALL the Pantheon's with 50v50 player battles. I'm sick of objective pushing, I just want to run around the REAL "Battlefield of the Gods" that Hi-Rez described in the Lore of the game.
ChaotiX: Yeah, and in most FPS games you can have applied armor ratings and buffs like damage reduction.\nWhat youre describing is no different than what is already implemented in most games, its nothing new. Its literally the same game on a much grander scale.\nYou are comparing it in opposition to existing games such as Planetside 2, which handles up to 2000 players in one lobby and runs over 20 million programs simultaneously…. and that game was released in 2012. \nProgramming is not the issue. The issue is people like you.
oniblackditch 1: ChaotiX are you retarded
nickbullΛятѕ l мσтιση ∂εsιgη: I grew up in a slavic family and when my mom wanted me not to be too long outside at the evening she said Baba will come and get you, that's what they did to scare the kids haha\nI'd love to see het in game!
