if the gods are born of faith when are there not monotheism gods like mithra allah, and the others
What's on your mind?
I have a question if the gods are born from the faith of humans when is it not gods who were the bass of humans or demigods like dionysus or psyche or other humans or deified demigods
Does anyone know if sean harris ever got to film his scenes as mad sweeney before he left the show or did he never get to do that cause I would like to see his scenes one day if its ever leaked out.
Without giving me spoilers can anyone inform me what story is better in terms of plot/character coherency(aka little to no plot holes), answers questions and dont leave fans in dark, dont include filler and overall just an engaging interesting story from beginning, middle and end. Cause I watched 2 seasons of american gods and I was bored out of my mind, I felt the story had extremely slow pacing, not interesting enough mysteries and characters, confusing lore, lots of filler I eventually tuned out and saw a few clips of season 3 and it didnt seem things got any better. I dont want to be burned that way again so giving neil gaiman the benefit of doubt that anansi boys is accurate to the novel and in terms of giving him and mr nancy a 2nd chance I need to know is anansi boys overall better written than american gods?
in the series I know how a god dies but how he returns
It seems to me that there are gods who are necessary for the natural order like the gods of death and of life
The pagan gods are born how like all beings living or having nothing to do with
I have a theory
If there are multiple personifications of Jesus in A.G. universe (depending on the church or the geographical location), is it possible that Thor and Donar exist separately?
Technically, Donar is a south german version of Thor.
So, Thor is still alive in American Gods, but Odin still weeps his son's death anyway
Am I agree?
I just wanted to get off my chest how much I hate Laura Moon...
In the current atmosphere of series instead of movies, STARZ screwed up by not renewing AMERICAN GODS. This series has the potential to be the next OZARK or FRIENDS. This series is the best written, acted and produced show I have seen since OZARK was released and since STARZ really didn’t promote it properly so many people (like me) watched it for the first time in the early months of 2021 and are sorely disappointed that STARZ won’t be bringing us any future episodes. All I can do is wonder why anyone in charge of that department is so out of touch with viewers and hope that another venue is savvy enough to realize the potential of the American Gods franchise. I hope so and quickly!
Listen up NETFLIX and PRIME, if you can steal the American Gods series and bring us more episodes of the same quality that rival the first 3 seasons of American Gods then someone will become an American God at their company!!
It has been brought up to my attention that the pages of Loki/Novel and Mr. World/Novel should maybe be fused together.
So far we have kept the two pages separate, despite how old this spoiler is, because of the arrival of the television series, which put it back into the "fresh spoilers" category.
There are both pro and anti arguments when it comes to the fusion of these pages, so I would like to know what the other members of the Wiki think about it. Should we keep the two separate, or fuse them into one?
how is a god born specifically? just believing is enough?
Thor is Odin's biological son? gods can have children, among themselves.
Demeter and Odin weren't strong enough to conceive any children?
Hello everyone! My name is ReverieCode and I’m a Wiki Representative from Fandom.
I wanted to draw your attention to a 2 week quality of life bug fixing project we’re undertaking at Fandom as we work through a ton of great feedback we got about the new unified experience we unveiled at Community Connect last weekend. This work will focus on bugs which haven’t risen to critical fix levels while the engineering teams have been heads down on the unified experience work, like features not quite working the way they’re intended or the way they used to on the legacy platform.
You can read more about it in this blog, but what I’m specifically reaching out about is seeing if you have any particular bugs on the wiki that are really annoying, but not site breaking and may have not been reported yet. We have an opportunity to get bugs like that triaged and incorporated into this project, so if that’s the case, please send me everything you can about the bug(s), including steps to reproduce them and any other relevant information.
This is your opportunity to get a quick fix to everyday annoyances while the teams are in full bug squashing mode, so let me know quickly! You can reply to this message, or let me know directly :)
I am currently you could say the "head" of the Wiki since most of the staff is gone and I am the highest ranking member here still active.
This is basically a call for help. The Wiki needs a LOT of work, and I cannot possibly do it all on my own.
Currently I am mostly focusing on five points
1) Filling missing informations that are in the novel, develop the pages of the characters from the novel and add new pages for elements in the novel (for exemple the Hall of Forgotten Gods and the afterlife as depicted in the novel deserves its page).
2) Rewriting the "Power" sections of the characters. The "list" style is inappropriate for the American Gods Wiki. It was a style created for the super-hero wikis and other fandoms where the powers are clear cut and thoroughly explained. Here, things are more ambiguous and poetic.
3) Finding behind the scene content for season 1 and 2 (interviews, concept art, etc...)
4) Fixing the galleries (the Slideshow style doesn't work anymore with the new server and thus I need to put them all in a different format for the pictures to be accessible)
5) Creating Cultural backgrounds for the gods, Old or New
Which is already a lot of work.
But a lot more needs to be done - and thus I call for your help. If you ever want to help the Wiki, don't hesitate and go ahead. If you make a mistake it is alright, others will come to correct it or I will correct it myself, but at least something will have been done. We need people to participate to build the Wiki and help it grow into a reliable source of information as much as a center of the fandom, for both the television series and the novel.
Some of the things you can do to help are:
# Find pictures. Screenshots of the episodes, official promotional pictures, or images taken from the graphic novel adaptation. The galleries are seriously lacking in pictures.
# Finish the posts of season 2. The person who started creating pages for the episodes of season 2 and the season 2 sections on the characters pages is now gone. If you can fulfill information about season 2 - adding plot and info on the pages of episodes and characters - please do it.
# Season 3. Nobody currently is working seriously on season 3. We need to add informations to the episode pages. We need to create pages for the characters and locations of season 3 and then fill them with information. I currently have not the time to do so - please, if you can, don't hesitate to help with season 3 pages.
Again, a Wiki can't be taken care of by only one person. Do not hesitate to participate, share and help. Please, we need more people on board here.
If Odin had gungnir his spear she would have destroyed tyr
I personally would like to see Morpheus from Greek mythology I think he could be a great guide for shadows and what his dreams represent
I know there's a bit of debate about which profile picture should be used for the television series characters - either one from their first appearance in the show, either the latest picture of them.
I checked a bit on Tumblr with fellow American Gods fans and eventual Wiki consultors, and they are pretty much agreeing on the idea that maybe we could transform the profile pictures into "profile galleries" with a picture for each season the character appears in. (For exemple, Shadow would have slots on his profile pictures for the different seasons he is in, reflecting his change in appearance from season 1/2 to season 3).
I don't know what people over here think about it, but since the idea was brought up I thought I would share. It would also be a quick indicator at which seasons the character is in.
After that, this solution was brought up because people seem still divided between the idea of keeping the original profile pictures (since this is how the character first appeared and started in the show) and the latest ones (currently, season 2 but now season 3 pictures)
this was another just meh episode, its episodes like this that makes me on the verge of giving up on this show, like i dont think ive ever seen a show with such a slow pacing, i dont care if that is how the book/books do that, its annoying
cause first off all more talk of some war that is non existent or happens in small doses, maybe if wednesday wasnt so freaking cryptic on how he plans on using shadow to kill the new gods but he isnt
seeing denis o hare was nice i guess, although i prefer his russell character over this guy
im glad they remembered czernabog willing to kill shadow but i find myself forgetting why he wanted to kill him, i remember they played chess or checkers and it resulted in a death promise
i liked salim standing up to wednesday, good for him, wednesday is an annoying cunt, he's right mad should have killed him and spared us his tedious whining and cowardice
the mystery in lakeside is obviously connected to that oh geez golly chick following around shadow, she is annoying too im sorry cause i find her nice attitude to be fake, apparently she has a dark secret so she is probably behind that allison girl missing, of course the stupid townfolk think shadow did that with no proof mind you
i honestly feel like lakeside, ive seen that plot idk how many times where its some too good to be true town hiding a dark mystery as soon as some outsider joins in, idk if im sick of the trope or not, it depends on the payoff
idk why wednesday called shadow miguel
i did like the cgi animals, i dont care if cgi is looked down upon, ill take that over nothing
but now we have a total of 10 mysteries:
the longest mystery of how odin im just gonna call him plans to kill the new gods
why he is so insistent on having shadow at lakeside
what is the too nice lady hiding(ricky pointed out she knows shadows fake name even though he never told her showing she has supernatural powers)
why the motel keeper didnt mention her son
why that zorya sister wants shadow to have that coin
the mystery of how shadow and bilquis are connected
what all the dreams shadow got in this meant
and lastly what was the beginning scene about, i think it was some vikings making a sacrifice for odin, i think that was it but what was the significance exactly
also i dont remember if jinn actually says why he left
and where is nancy in all of this too, they need to explain where he went
this was honestly a pretty decent premiere, it wasnt great but it wasnt flat out bad
i liked we actually got confirmation that shadow is wednesdays son although knowing wed he could be lying for his own means but its better than nothing
i liked tech boy but he was the same as he usually is so his "death" meant nothing cause in the season 2 finale he didnt come off all wild like he usually does
idk what the deal with mr world turning into ms world was or why crispin wasnt seen, im pretty sure that was an extra playing him
they did however show off mad sweeneys body
and sorry but i dont buy laura died, she'll be back i think
idk what the big deal with lakeside is, im sure that is a mystery in the book
Marilyn manson being there did nothing to interest me
and im impressed ms world tried to take out wednesday
but the problem that is consistent is he goes to gather more old gods, how many do we need exactly and what is the endgame of wednesday right now, that is a problem of the show, they have more characters than they can handle, too many gods on the table right now, i am all for some of them to start dropping like flies
and they had bilquis in this but still havent explained her fortune tied to shadow is about, that may never be solved
