My old god from the original YG. God of Greed and Trade, later god of Wealth and Trade.


I never did much with him. It was fun having him spiral into depression and rage at the gods for being apathetic jerks though.
Going more specific than vague concepts of wealth and trade might help. Narrow the scope so you care more. Like say you took the sphere of "cute wuddly cuddly fluffy wamblers who couldn't hurt a fly".

First, you need to create suitable environment for your fluffy wambles. So you create pleasant field of flowers.

Then you create the fluffy wamblers, who happily frolick through the field of flowers. Great!

However, Bad McBadguy the Evilbad god of Badevilness has created a wicked race of Yucky YuckYuck creatures who survive solely by eating your precious fluffy wamblers! Horror! Despair! Woe!

So, now you have to somehow protect your Fluffies from the Yucky-Yucks! You could mutate some of the fluffy wamblers into super wamblers, with the other wamblers taking shelter in their super fur, with the Yuckies unable to harm the super-wamblers.

Or you could make the wamblers poisonous! Or you have them be able to make them transform their fur into spikes so that when the yucky-yucks swallow them whole their throats are suddenly filled with spikes, causing them to asphyxiate.

But woe! Despair! Horror! Evil Mcbadguy has killed all the pretty flowers, causing your fluffy wamblers to starve!

You could cause them to directly absorb sunshine and happiness! Or perhaps they constantly throw off spores that grow into new flowers!

Etc.

Yeah, a sphere can be as broad or specific as the player wants. In the original Ye Gods, the broadness of a sphere affected its power to some extent. Cim's ridiculously broad sphere of Order gave a discount to many, many things but I still had to plan around substantial costs on pretty much everything. Meanwhile, KI'Tork's very specific sphere of Kitchens allowed him to give everyone kitchens and related things at literally no cost.

I've edited my sheet accordingly.

Is that a challenge Andres?
Nah, just mentioning that the idea is hilarious. TBH my god wouldn't be averse to working with your god. Remember in Ye Gods how my god created blood oaths and such? It'll also let my god learn new blood magic tricks if we were to train together.

This is pretty much exactly what I did with Humans. I created a zombie army so they could die in the place of humanity (never used, unfortunately) and I created the titans from Attack on Titan. The titans were actually one of the few effective defences out of ALL the allied gods' forces against a monster invasion during the early part of the game.

All fanfics are heresy, each and every one, especially the shipping ones. Those are by far the worst.

We should probably set up some kind of code of conduct as soon as possible.

Since when do gods formed from the void have familly?

Although now that you mention it, I expect my god will pretty much consider all of creation to be their familly. Including the gods, as messed up as they are likely to be.

Question: can gods reproduce or at the very least produce weaker offspring?

I'm almost afraid to ask what Cim did.
Converted a majority of them to worship it alongside their other gods, chose prophets, built secret cities devoted to worship, tricked them to help it create one of the most, if not the most destructive weapon-like artifact ever, helped advance magic and technology by just a little, invented mail service, got corrupt politicians lynched, protected caravans, investigated Void cults, and so much more. Fun times.

Question: can gods reproduce or at the very least produce weaker offspring?
No. Just no.
