Kalpa: A Game of Divinity OOC
« on: November 14, 2013, 06:47:58 pm »

The World begins and prospers...The World grows stagant and weak...The World is destroyed and ended. And then it begins once more.


Premise:

Kalpas is a godgame where players are either gods or very lucky mortals who through their actions influence the future of Creation. This is quite similar to Ceasar's Godhood and Ghazkull's Pantheon, although there is a slight difference. In Kalpa, the universe is destined to be destroyed so that a new one may take its place, with new residents and dieties. Perhaps such an an end can be delayed or even prevented. Or perhaps it cannot, perhaps the apocalypse will come regardless of action and the only way to survive is to actively destroy the Kalpa? Or perhaps, there is way to escape the Kalpa entirely? Who knows unless you try it for yourself?

A strong abiltiy to roleplay is expected.

If you're still interested, read up on the rules below.

Sign-ups
Players will be chosen on merit. Quality of writing helps. 6 starting gods will be accepted, an undetermined number of ascendants and bound (none at game start) and 1 Ancient. Don't worry if you don't get in the first time; The nature of the Kalpas will probably result in divine casualties. Please PM all sheets. There won't be any deadline for sheets; I'll simply wait till I get good characters to write about.

One problem with PMing sheets:

I'd like to play, and I want to be able to fill in some role that we don't have enough of. (Not just because it increases the chance I'll play...but that is a bit of a consideration, I suppose.)

Have there been six Ancients submitted, or none? How about Gods--do we have two or twenty? What roles are needed, and what roles do you have too many of? I don't know, I can't tell.

Actually, all the submitted sheets have been quite varied. You could probably pick anything and still get a unique role.

Such methods include withholding from cannabis

Will be sigged, eventually.
It's the way I sig: I quote posts I think are worth it, put them in a different tab, then when I have a lot of them I put them in my sig all at once.

I have just enough sheets to start the game, so if anyone else wants to play, better send one in by tomorrow.
