Divine Fuckery: The End is Nigh
« on: December 14, 2018, 09:20:02 pm »

In the beginning there was nothing. Then there was a ruleset. And it was ok, I guess.
The Ruleset was RTD standard and was carved in stone and presented to the people. At ballistic speeds.

1: Divine Fuckery
2: Failure and Insults
3: Less Omnipotent and Impotent
4: Worthy of a minor following
5: Praise, worship, virgin sacrifice
6: Ending a drought with a rain of ebola blood.


And the people, after picking bits of stone from their faces, thought that it was indeed, alright. But they wanted more. So a hierarchy of gods was created, to increase backstabbing and assholery.

There are three levels of god: Major, Minor, and Demi.

Major gods can control big shit and lots of stuff. Like the shape of the planet or making sentient life or occasionally boning human women to create horrific half divine offspring.

Minor gods can control other shit. Like being patrons of actions or controlling the harvest of an area. Or getting drunk and telling people to also get drunk.

Demi-gods can't control shit,  but they're basically super powered beings so they can still influence the world personally. Usually via murder if history is any indication.



And the people rejoiced, at lightning bolt point, but quietly whispered that it would be fun if gods could fuck each other over somehow. So they were turned to piles of ash. But as the ash was being swept up, the rules were updated, just for dramatic irony.

Gods have power

Power is how gods get shit done. Major gods start with 10, have max 20. Minor start with 5, have max 10, and Demi start with 0 and have max 5. Power can be used to add bonuses to rolls.  1 for +1, 3 for +2, 6 for +3.  It can be applied to any roll, but has to be applied BEFORE the roll.  Gods get power by doing things in the world, like being worshiped, feared, or generally doing influential things. You can lose power by having things associated with you destroyed, desecrated, or beaten in a sick rap battle.

Power lets gods fuck with each other. If a god does something, another god can try to reverse/stop it by paying an amount of power equal to the roll of the other god + any power that god used to make the roll.  Power can also be used to forcibly remove gods from their positions. A god can offer a challenge to any other god and the two will secretly wager an amount of power. The one who wagers the smallest loses, and they can be kicked out and replaced by the winner, demoted a level, or even killed if they're a demi-god vs a major god.  Here's the fun part though: That wager can include power from other gods and can exceed the normal max. Both sides have to pay their wagers regardless of who wins. 

And the charred skeletons agreed that it was good.





The first five people become major gods. The second five become minor. The rest are demigods.  Here's a sheet.

Borkle's First action is deciding that this nothing shit is boring and decides to start working on making some Hearty Boys to fight for him. And maybe an arena. A space arena. Yeah.

Yes. Hence the map of infinite darkness with a little sign saying "UNIVERSE: Under new management."

Quick Note: I'd like The Arena of Borkle to be at 0/0

For at the end of the universe, he shall always be.

Hey guys, for the future bold your actions and try to keep them in one post. Just for the sake of cleanliness and visibility.

Name: Indivita
God Level: Major
Power: 10
Sphere: Life and Energy
Description: A small, metallic cube that floats around.
Notes:

With not many things to create life or energy upon, Indivita spends the turn vibrating furiously to accrue energy. Through, uh, divine means.

(Guess I get to be major even though I'm the sixth, because the fourth chose demi?)

Name:Ep.
God level:Minor
Power:5
Sphere:The Weak.
Description:A little brown mouse with an upward-pointing crescent on his forehead.
Notes:Eek!

*Edited my description. A normal-sized mouse seemed more like something an actual myth might have.

Hide and tunnel and dig and scratch at the outskirts of the other gods nascent works. The tunnels in the fabric of the universe will be my "Holes/pocket plane". Use 3 power on this.

Is this the sort of action a minor god can do? I can change it if necessary.

Never ever cease communication with your enemies, never ever cease interaction with them, never isolate yourself from them. Never ignore them, relish the time to deal with them, to exercise banter. The biggest mistake one can make is ignoring one's enemies. Go out of your way to pick a fight today.

Grant each individual Clockwork Being the ability to choose a path: Creation or Destruction. (So you see this, I'd like to specify that they only have the ability to choose a path. They don't actually have to.)
I like how everyone is contributing to the Clockwork Beings. Truly, they shall be the most interesting of races!
