Against my better judgement, here's an experimental godgame that may or may not be ended after 10 turns depending on how well these mechanics hold up.

-----

The universe is new, its denizens young. For eons the plates moved and shifted, sustained by the nurture of the planes that fed it and insured. In time, life did grow, and from life grew the first intellect.

From that intellect, the gods were called to creation, like flies to a corpse.

Such began the Age of the Gods, the Games of the Divine, and the Usurpation of the Material by the Immaterial deities.

-----

So basically, this is a godgame where the gods are in control of the Material Plane/Reality/Creation/The Place Where the Sun Does Shine. All other planes are under the command of other entities or otherwise uncontrollable by the gods. Gods are semiphysical beings that have both a corporeal body, as well as a metaphysical soul that is kept in their Vault. A god cannot die as long as they have their Vault. Gods are creatures of Essence and use Essence to sustain themselves as well as act on Creation. Gods are very powerful beings, but rely on Essence for survival.

The world is already formed and has survived for many millions of years without divine intervention. Sapient life has only emerged very recently.

two quick questions:

So, what do acts do in the context of the game? I see we're supposed to form pacts to get them, or convert them from essence, but i'm not quite sure what exactly they do.

Second, are we gonna be playing on a map? I notice you didn't include one in the OP

always happy to playtest new systems, i'll be back later to make a god.

Whoops. All mentions of Acts should be replaced with Essence.

Map? You don't need a map! They just help visualise things. Map may be made depending on how busy/not busy I am.

Litty, So, i'm guessing pacts are used to increase essence income?

Nope! You use Pacts to use someone/something else's source of Essence without using your own. So e.g. let's say you have a Pact with the Plane of Fire. Lets say this iteration of Fire represents Elemental Fire, Destruction, and Renewal. You get X amount of Essence that can only be used for actions related to those spheres. This Essence isn't added to your Essence pool and unused Pact Essence isn't carried over between turns. I should explain this better in the OP.

Yeah, it's generic, sue me. I don't think an honest-to-bone archetype was done in a while so there.

Question - can divines create other divines? Also, is there any benefit to having pantheons or worshippers, or is essence just plane stuff?
