You can probably gather an idea of the Indulgence represented by each mask, but here’s a summary:

Zhumupuru (top): Indulgence of Sloth, Lust, Gluttony, and Greed
Raviki (middle): Indulgence of Wrath
Nikiwa (bottom): Indulgence of Frivolity
Waiziki (shown on previous page): Indulgence of Grief, Doubt, and Self-Pity

You might want to put this info on the gods into the world section.

Good point! There’s also more info on each of them in the goodies for the printed versions of volume one, but a smaller primer would probably be good for the About section. No promises for WHEN I’ll be able to get to it, but I’ll add it to my To Do list.

I’m curious what, of any, culture/religion you’re using for reference or ideas or if it’s all just off the top of your head. I’ve been putting off the world building of a setting of mine for a while now simply because I can’t come up with great stuff like this.

There isn’t any specific religion or reference I’m intentionally using. I read a lot of history, myth, and philosophy from a lot of cultures. I’ve traveled a fair amount. And I come from families that intermingle several different cultures. So there’s a bit of everything I’ve experienced or read in my world-building. Taoism, Christianity, Buddhism, Mayan history, US Civil War history, British imperialism and the Indian caste system, Japanese architecture, Italian architecture, layouts of ancient cities, and so on and so forth get combined with personal experiences and symbolic representations of ideas. I can’t say in many cases, “Yes, this is based predominantly on XYZ,” because usually I only notice the influences after someone goes, “Did you base this on X?” and I respond, “I studied that at some point, so yes it’s probably in there.”

I world-build by the bubbling kitchen sink cauldron, apparently.
