World of Darkness: Reloaded
The once-powerful gods were brought low. At their destruction, their power cascaded through their descendents. Now, dying gods pass their essence to future god-blooded mortal “vessels”. A vessel is imbued on reaching adulthood (which varies by culture) or on attaining a god-specific condition. An oracle’s imbuing might pass to the next blind, god-blooded (of any age) mortal who visits a Seeing Stone. Most often, though, the vessel and the imbued essence do not match. Rather, the mortal changes over time to match the essence she holds.
