Which one has the best mythology to draw inspiration from?
Kill yourself faggot, Hindu mythology blows every other mythology the fuck out
>these mad curries
The former. Imagine a world in which Ben "Popping the Cork on every Orc" Garrison is a 20th level Ranger.
lolno. Try Aussie.
Hindu lore makes all others look like the half hearted fantasies of a fedora.
>Celtic mythology is as good as it gets
Come back when Celtic myths have nuclear bombs, flying cities, crazy powerups, and motherfuckers destroying universes in their battles.
I don't understand why you're using curry as an insult man. Shit is fucking delicious.
Besides, it's mostly fucking Tamil people that smell bad, and all the rest of India hates them.

And when did Germanic, Celtic, or Scandinavian folklore ever spread beyond their respective borders?
It also did. Into Indo-China and the rest of South-East Asia.

Very funny cunt, care to explain what European religions or deities exist outside the basements of LARPers?
You do realize that Asura's wrath is very very loosely based of off hindu mythology. For instance having a single character named Asura is like having a single character named Jotun.
It's fun but it also reads like it was written by ten-year olds.
>Hanuman needs to cross the sea to get to Lanka, so he just grows so giant he can cross it in one step
>he gets caught by Ravana's men and disses Ravana so hard that the demon king of all the heavens has his tail set on fire
>of course Hanuman gets free and jumps all over Lanka, burning the city down
>yeah well Ravana has the best architects ever so the next day the whole country is rebuilt and it's even better than ever
If it were written today it'd be written off as a bunch of Mary Sues. Ravana is literally the only foe who Rama doesn't kill with one arrow, and the only way he could kidnap Rama's wife (the mostest beautiful and faithful woman in the entire world, you guys!) was to have his brother cause a distraction (thereby getting killed) and snatch her when Rama looked the other way. This was after Rama disfigured Ravana's sister for being not hot enough to date him.
WANT TO HEAR SOMETHING FUNNY?
THE ARYANS WHO CONQUERED INDIA AND IMPLEMENTED THE CASTE SYSTEM WHERE OF THE SAME GROUP THAT SETTLED IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND EUROPE.
SO EURO MYTHOLOGY IS BASED OFF OF PROTO-WHITE MYTHOLOGY, WHICH POO IN LOOS NOW WORSHIP.
Dude. It's mythology. Zeus transforms into a swan and fucks a bitch but Hera doesn't leave him, Hekatonkheires throw literal mountains at each other. Fenris eats the moon, and the entire world is supported by a fucking tree. Jesus absolves all sins ever and god creates the world in seven fucking days.
Don't forget the part where Hanuman had to find a plant which could heal his bro from poison but no time to search the mountain so he LIFTED the entire mountain and jumped with it back home
Here we can see the schizophrenic in his natural habitat. Observe his extensive use of caps lock.
>SO EURO MYTHOLOGY IS BASED OFF OF PROTO-WHITE MYTHOLOGY, WHICH POO IN LOOS NOW WORSHIP.
...what? White people existed long before the Indo-Europeans
Besides, eurofags worship a sandnigger
Zeus is too, Hera cheats on him a few times IIRC. The Greek gods behave like a bunch of fucking teenagers I swear. Athena turns a woman into a spider just because she's better at fucking weaving.
Also God created 2 massive sea serpents at the dawn of time, then thinks "Oh wait, these things are so fucking huge they'd breed and eat everything" so he kills one.
Then creates a Land version and a Sky version.
Oftentimes when I read myths, I wonder if people weren't all just in on some epic meme
The japanese goddess of food sprayed a meal out of her orifices and the moon god cut off her head in disgust, the egyptians said the world was fapped into existence, there's a central african god of vomit, coyote of the plains used to remove his cock and make it chase women to rape, Thor kicked a random dwarf onto Balder's funeral pyre, Vainamoinen and his crew ran into a bunch of snakes drinking beer inside of a cave then stared at each other awkwardly before Vainamoinen cursed snakes to never enjoy beer again, the Aztecs lived in fear of skeleton hermaphrodites with rattlesnake penises, etc.
>The Indo-Europeans were white people
Everybody in north india, western central asia, anatolia, north africa, and iran is white
>proto- "white mythology" not "proto -white" mythology
Makes no sense
The only weaver I can think of in Greek mythology is Arachne. She was an excellent weaver, so great that she was considered (even by herself, bad move) to be better than Athena, whose portfolio it turns out is War, Wisdom, AND Weaving. So Athena decided to rise above the rest of her total garbage family and challenged Arachne to a weaving contest, judged by Envy. Athena wove a tapestry showing off all the great triumphs and battles of the gods, while Arachne wove one highlighting all of their infidelities. Envy judged them each and found Arachne to be the victor, fair and square. So Athena turned her into a spider. The moral of the story is don't be better than a god, even if you are.
>Everybody in north india, western central asia, anatolia, north africa, and iran is white
Wow, you are either a complete dipshit or intentionally misinterpreting my words.
>makes no sense
Yes it does you moron, try reading it out loud if you're that fucking stupid. Put emphasis on the words in quotation marks if you still dont understand.
I know that there's a lot of symbolism behind and what not, but I can't get over the fact that most situations are extremely silly when you don't consider the context.
>Wow, you are either a complete dipshit or intentionally misinterpreting my words.
Most people in North Africa, North India, Europe, West Asia, and west-central asia are more closely related to each other than anybody else
>Yes it does you moron
There is no "Ur" white mythology, there's many
>Oh gee, if it isn't another lich, haven't seen one of those in a while.
>Wait, is that skeleton rocking bewbs? I mean how does that even work?
>Uh, I think I just saw something move under its loincloth, might be seeing things though.
>HOLY MOTHER OF QUETZALCOATL WTF ITS DICK IS HISSING AT ME!
I just wanted to say... I love you guys.
As sad as it sounds, you assholes might be the only people I have anything in common with.
>And when did Germanic, Celtic, or Scandinavian folklore ever spread beyond their respective borders?
Wew lad. Try a bit harder pls.
What day of the week is it where you live buddy?
Friday? (Freya's day)
Wait are we actually measuring which religion had the most believers in a thread about fucking Germanic vs Scandinavian religions on /tg/? Who gives a fuck, most people here are atheist anyway.
Well, since I'm Swedish I'm biased towards Scandinavian mythology.
Did you hear him,men? He said they're revolting! To arms!
If you're just gonna make shit up, go big.
Don't settle for "He built a big boat when it rained" or "A bush burned once in front of a schizo"
Also he makes Angels and calls them lords of everything.
And then makes humans and tells the angels you need to bow to them.
And for kicks gave them free will only for this moment so he can kick some of them out.
Here is another picture for you
Are you implying that biblical mythology is boring?
The whole reason God wanted to flood the earth was that there were a bunch of giant half-angel lovechildren running around and fucking with everyone's shit.
And Noah didn't just build a boat, he built a habitat for two of every species on earth with nothing but the wood he found in his back yard. Then he got drunk, accidentally showed his son his dong and tl;dr that's apparently why we have black people.
Every other Mythology had people shitting out universes and punching out gods of creation.
Hindu Mythology just sounds exotic and interesting, because it's not often explored in media.
You can take something as boring and downtrodden as greek mythology, take less well-known part of it and suddenly it's interesting again.
Case in point: Gigantomachy. People are always amazed by the shit that went on there.
not only that but they are based on the same roots. Example is Tyr, who is Saxnot, who is, wait for it, MARS.
most native polytheistic religion is based on the very early believes of indoaryan tribes and the names of Tyr comes from a root that later and furthehr south became the word deus
Southern germanic best germanic.
Mostly because it bordered to outright shamanism, at least the few shit that gets found implies that.
Mythwise they are both cool, and entertaining as fuck.
amen to that!
wish theyd return to their old ways instead of being highly conservative pricks
