When a mortal goes to God Time and changes it, that mortal has made his/her mark of the God Plane. That takes the form of a brand new myth, but as it is now part of the God Plane, it has "always" been there. Other HeroQuestors can now use that myth or path as a template for their own HeroQuests, either following what the mortal did or changing it slightly to achieve different results.

So, the Red Goddess and the Seven Mothers all performed their own God Quests to become deities and hence their myths are available to their HeroQuestors. So, a Lunar follower of Yanafal Tarnils could go to Hell and be nailed to a spike as part of a heroquest, as that is something that Yanafal Tarnils did on his God Quest..

Any magical event on the mortal plane can affect the God Plane. The Sun Stop did, Castle Blue did, the Rising of the Red Mooon did, the Curse of Kin did and so on.

It is disturbing - HeroQuesting is very open and any interaction with the GodPlane is open to interpretation.

Nor do we have rules for HeroQuesting, and the ones that we do have are constantly being denigrated by the new powers-that-be. So, we have to make our own ones up and try to work out for ourselves what the GodPlane and HeroQuesting is like.

In fact, it is almost as if we are on a HeroQuest to work out what HeroQuesting is about.

No wonder it is confusing.

All in my own opinion, of course, after 30 years of HeroQuesting to find the answers ...

See Ya
