    Spoiler: How to determine the alignment of archetype pairs
    Show
    On the Ego-Social axis, Ego is a negative value and Social is a positive value. Add the social and ego scores together and divide the sum by 2. On the Order-Freedom, Order is a negative value and Freedom is a positive value. Add the values on that axis together and divide by 2.

    Example:

    Innocent plus Outlaw:

    ***Ego-Social: ((+1/3)+(0))/2=+1/6, so this combination is 1/6 social.

    ***Order-Freedom: ((-2/3)+(+1))/2=+1/6, so this combination is 1/6 freedom.

    ***Innocent plus Outlaw is 1/6 Social, 1/6 Freedom

    Ruler plus Hero:

    ***Ego-Social: ((-1)+(0))/2=-1/2, so this combination is 1/2 ego.

    ***Order-Freedom:((0)+(-1))/2=-1/2, so this combination is 1/2 order.

    ***Ruler plus Hero is 1/2 order, 1/2 ego.

    *Note: I’m not sure I’m comfortable with any of the archetypes being good or evil since they all have positive and negative aspects, and all of them are needed to make the world run. I will revisit this.


    **I think I’ll request this be run this in Mutants and Masterminds instead of pathfinder.

    Default Re: [Homebrew Setting] Pantheon Based on the 12 Jungian Archetypes

    The gist of my idea when it comes to using this pantheon of 12 deities based on the 12 Jungian Archetypes is the world had been split into 14 parallel dimensions. The split happened 850 years ago on Saturday, August 9th, 1169, and the dimensional shard the PC’s have spent their entire lives on has had to make do without the intervention and protection of the 12 deities, and even managed to develop a level of technology similar to early 1970’s Earth. The deities departure, however set in motion a slow insidious process that is making this shard of the universe fall apart. The PC’s then have to use a scientist’s special wrist-bands to travel to a series of 12 dimensions ruled by corrupt versions of each archetype, finding a series of 12 artifacts to gain access to a 14th dimension where a wizard is holding the “good” part of each archetype’s essence and the pc’s have to defeat him so the “good” halves can fuse with the “bad” halves of their respective archetype, so the archetypes can fuse the dimensions and save the world. For the record, the 13 dimensions excluding most or all of the archetypes are all falling apart slowly, but the one the pcs are from is falling apart the quickest since they don’t even have a single corrupt archetype to help hold things together.
