Why would you include mortals in the voting?  We would need 2/3 vote to condemn a mortal?

We Devils have to stick to transforming mortals it seems.

Even the good ones.

I applaud your efforts to bring order to this world.

Your rules are acceptable.

"Thank you. Now, if we have one more, the terms '2/3 Majority' and 'majority' will not by synonymous with 'unanimous,' which will be...a nice milestone, I suppose."

Why would you include mortals in the voting?
That's an excellent question, because I don't recall stating we would.

Politeness and equality, plus how often would we need to condemn a mortal? If you want to change that, you can suggest it.

Suit yourself...

"Draco," came the voice of Azaroth. "Your ideas are laudable, surely. But I need clarification of a few matters first. Primarily, what can a 'Power' be condemned for? Secondly, if a mortal sworn to my service breaks my law, am I required to appeal to the council before suitable punishment is enacted?"

Useal responds."While I consider the Idea to be admirable, I am worried by the fine print. the addition of mortals would cripple my ability to govern Avalon. I would have to seek approval for the least of fines. I hereby suggest that every power be given the right to levy punishment  on those who follow them, and to control their mortal followers outside the bonds of the congress. this would allow more leeway while preserving the essential idea behind the congress. A loose pact with many participants is better than a strong one with three.
Also, the greater emphasis on mortal pawns may appeal to a certain go of chaos".

My creations appear to be very moral creatures. It's a wonder they don't worship you. Would you like to help manage the laws of my new city? Admittedly it consists of only one factory constructed by my Fae friend...at the moment.

What about the current conflict between me and the god of war? Would I be allowed to call for a vote to condemn him?

Don't forget the devil of lust. But wait; how do I, a god of Chaos, fit into that?

I would accept this pact, as long as there are limitations on condemnation. There needs to be a proper cause for punishment, lest we destroy those we simply dislike.

Oh, and the name could possibly be improved.

He immediately begins to beavergoat the man quite thoroughly! At the very beginning, the man is mystified by James' actions, but his face quickly becomes a mask of horror when the procedure starts!

"OH GODS WHY? WHYYY?"

After a twenty minute session, the man is left white as a sheet, hairless and completely and utterly dead. James congratulates himself on a job well done!

With Orcs, obviously.

You are correct, the name is quite discriminatory. How about "The Synod"?

Draco (GWG) to be honest your wording seemed a little vague to me although I do agree with your overall idea. I'm a little hesitant only because I don't like the idea of being told what I can and can't do with mortals.  It's easy enough for a god to be all nice and friendly with them when your power is dependent on their worship but some of us get our power through other means (such as sacrifice) and thus would be put at a disadvantage by these rules.  I'd also like a bit more detail about how the punishment works.  I also agree about limitations to punishments among ourselves.

Y'know you guys may see my diseases as bad, but I was merely doing some really good population control....

As the populations rise, and tech gets better, we must all pay upkeep
By limiting population and technological prowess, I have kind of helped you all get a little better without ridiculous upkeep

But right now, I feel as if I should either perform more "population control" or let the populations grow so we can get more worshippers......

I'm still baffled the god of morality has no problem with killing Atheists...that makes me more moral than him.

I'll repeat the idea that you should offer them a chance to align themselves with one of the Powers.

And I'd rather Jbyg not have the power to abuse his Dwarves thank you very much...

I'm not saying we give them a say.

I'm saying we protect them. Otherwise Jbyg commits mass Genocide of Atheist and Azemist Dwarves.
