“The Lore vs. UPG – A False Dichotomy” by John Beckett
“We need both lore and UPG. We need the lore to connect us to our ancestors and their wisdom. We need the lore to provide guidelines for interpreting our experiences.
We need UPG to maintain a living tradition. We need UPG to remind us that our Gods aren’t abstract principles – they’re real, distinct, living beings with their own goals, desires, personalities, and areas of responsibility.”
