Also, I need some gods, please –

Specifically, gods that might be attracted to Rochester, NY and points directly-ish East of there.

Fae Apoc gods, when they returned, tended to pick personalities from old myths (or to be personalities from old myths; that’s still up in the air). The cities they gravitated to were ones where they felt welcome – Irish-myth-gods to Irish-heavy cities, Polish-gods to Polish-heavy cities – either in Europe or in the U.S.

One source lists Rochester as – Ancestries: German (10.3%), Irish (8.6%), Italian (7.9%), English (6.2%), Polish (2.6%), West Indian (1.8%).

(sort of a weird listing – because the fact that the city is 38.1% black is listed in a different chart. I apologize; easily-accessible data does not nicely list African nationality of ancestry the way it does European)

From growing up in Rochester-area, I’d say that fits the feel of the city, although I can’t vouch for actual numbers.

  1. What sort of cultural background/s does the black 38.1% have? If it’s sufficiently consistent, that’s a fairly big ‘voting’ block. Down to the smaller groups, what about anyone from the Ring Cycle? Or Minerva – you said there are a lot of universities there.

    • That’s a very good question. So, Wikipedia says – “Most African Americans are of West and Central African descent and are descendants of enslaved blacks within the boundaries of the present United States.” But while you can look at a Shustakowski and say “hey, I bet you’re ethnically Polish,” immigration via slavery means that much of the cultural background – even names – were stripped away. ~I am not an expert in this!~ This is not my area of study.
