Would you prefer a Python script or a form on the site?
Uh...the later one I think.

The problem with slippery slope arguments is the fact that I don't have to slide down them.

In any case, does guilt exist yet? Am I going to have to invent guilt? Because this crap about everyone believing themselves to be perfect little angels is getting on my nerves.

And then Darruth will have to feel guilty about inventing guilt.

Guilt doesn't exist yet because everyone believes their actions to be just. Every sphere has its own simple morality of "self-aligned things good, cross-aligned things bad, other things personal preference." This amounts to everyone being always right from their own perspective, as very rarely do gods act cross-aligned. I predict you'll have a hard time convincing other they should feel guilty. Cim has given repentant people second chances already (though mostly in secret actions), so the concept shouldn't be alien to it. Good luck in saying that Cim is wrong in something, though.

I really don't care about the god's feeling guilty. I think, however, that I need to invent the concepts of empathy and guilt, which are innately tied into one another.

Maybe then the gods can learn from mortals, oh wow. >.>

Yeah. Don't you hate it when someone thinks their morality is perfect?

I do think they have some empathy and guilt, just act like we do. We are great role models.

Empathy, guilt and literally every other concept exists. At the moment we have mountains, but we don't have a mountain god. A mountain god might eventually form and be god of all mountains but until then the mountains will continue to exist. Back when the god of treachery died, his sphere was spread out evenly among the worlds and so treachery is still a thing that happens. A god is basically just a *thing* personified.

There was only speculation that the sphere spread around...

Eh. If treachery doesn't exist as a result of the treachery god's death then we should expect mountains to stop existing if a hypothetical mountain god were to die. Or maybe they'd all explode and cause an apocalypse? I pity the GM that has to think of what happens in such a scenario.

If a hypothetical god of mountains were to die, there may be several scenarios depending on exactly what the player did:
  • The god is all the mountains: Anything considered a mountain vanishes
  • The god is all the mountains with a dead-hand failsafe: Anything considered a mountain executes the failsafe (which could be an explosion). Note that the binding energy of an Earth-like planet is on the order of 2e32J, but nasty things can happen to the climate with far less energy
  • The mountains worship the god: The mountains are sad
  • The mountains are mountains: Nothing interesting happens.
This (obviously) isn't an exhaustive list. Many other scenarios exist.

Holy Christ! There are other ways to play as gods? That is amazing! Does that mean I can just become a collective Human consciousness and rule over every individual human like I'm playing some massive RTS? I mean I won't actually do that but it would be interesting to know if that's an option.

No for several reasons.
  • Humans have free will
  • Humans are someone else's creation. A well-thought-out justification will be necessary for this (and agreement).
