Im dissappointed at the phoenix ruling, I wanted to make a green one called Pyrelight, but stupidity would just be insulting to the original.
I cant play stupid very well anyway, so oh well.
Im curious if the stupity part came from a reference or was just an avalon thing?
Like the others said, these are not the mythical phoenix that would be referred to elsewhere. These are pets of the firebirds. So when I first introduced the firebird race I had a lot of people confusing them with phoenix so I joked that this was a terrible insult to a firebird since the phoenix were their stupid pets. (The firebirds were inspired by a Russian fairy tale in case anyone cares about origins of these ideas.) Anyways, there are mythical phoenix out there somewhere, but they would be quite confusing to people on Agartha who are used to phoenix being something really different. Sort of like meeting an intelligent, powerful alien parakeet.
