1) When edicts are implemented, will they scale with the number of turns you give each round?

2) Is it working as designed that I can give mythology items from one side to the other, since any side can use them? It seems to take away from each side having different mythology items when they can just be given to either faction. Also, it's kinda annoying that attacking units will grab them.

1) Yep, should be. :)

2) Yep, absolutely.  Note that the bandits can steal your mythological items, too.  This is what makes for the actual strategy of placement with them, too.  You can't use most of these as a last-ditch defense, you have to think ahead a bit so that enemies aren't right on top of you.  THAT said, you've only seen the unit pickup ones.  The other 11 ones that are just released are the global effect kind, and they aren't picked up and tend to only benefit your side (whether by helping you or punishing the other side).  The god passives and god tokens also work that way.  So really we're talking about only 7 out of the 64 tokens being something that the other side can grab, and I think that it's the most interesting way to do it because you can't just plunk down adamantine near the enemy town and watch your guy go nuts when he gets there.  You have to worry a bit more about who will get it and where you place it and all that.
