In Supernatural, God seemed to just vanish. Exorcism rites and prayers still work so the situation is similar.
66: Bag of Loot
The Mutant- In Leveled Mutations. D8 dice and they get only the bonus spells that go with the mutations. They get one mutation at first, another each at 5th, 10th, 15th, and 20th. The mutations are an expansion of the bloodlines so they come with skills and maybe a feat. If any other class has a mutation(possible from magical fallout and such) they get no spells, skills, feats or such. Another mutation and they need to take a defect. While sorcerers can take any mutation at first level and get everything they still need to take a defect to take another mutation.
What you are doing also sounds like a Geomancer.
I've got to stat. up my Wormpeople. Since they have a worm body from the waist down instead of legs, they move slower. They are covered with slime, to protect them from the acid they spit to burrow through rock, so good escape artist and a move speed through rock and dirt. I want them to have bad charisma, but good intelligence and wisdom. They have arms and hands so dex., con, and strength should be normal. If you cut them apart between the segments, the parts become smaller wormpeople. The part without the head becomes a first level character with no memory, and possibly a new personality. It should take weeks for them to fully regenerate. They have to wear thick, hooded cloaks and masks when interacting with human NPCs.
Any input on how I could make them viable would be appreciated.
In the TV show Angel, a beloved character was used to provide the body for a dead evil god. The actress did a wonderful job. Having one of the PCs or one of their loved ones be the "Perfect Vessel" would fit the title of this thread. The big bad would get rewarded with immortality (but they could still die from violence).
... And this is supposed to be a BAD thing, eh?
Only if it's put before everything else.
Weapon factories would have worker deaths daily. Star athletes might have hobbies where they murder beggars and arrange them as art. The good guys will be framed for such murders and wanted dead or soon to be dead.
Ritual 24: Gemini Purge. The two parts of a subject are split apart to fight for control.
I was confused. I thought you were talking about an actual online game. What you really are talking about is a 2 tier game. Players and a GM roleplaying people (optionally themselves, but in the far future) playing a virtual reality game. If I played it, I would have to create a far future me, who's mental stats would have important impact on the virtual game. As a maintenance person(Janitor) I would metagame that soap is poisonous to oozes and jellys, and that cleaning reduces the chance of contacting diseases. As a fan of MLP gen 12 I would notice a unicorn was polymorphed into a cow or something.
No, robots would not be able to get into corners and would need me to refill their cleaning fluids reservoirs. A Roomba cannot vacuum shelves.

The Druid bear person, Jacob Bruin, brought some troops. "This is everyone from the forests who was spoiling for a fight. This awakened Owlbear Gordo, is a barbarian with a huge fallen tree limb. A couple of male unicorns, you can't pronounce their names. A Shambling Mound, a treant I think has bugs, and this pack of dire wolves. I told them only to attack the dragony looking enemy so as long as your people stay out of Gordo's way while he's raging, they should be fine."
I was trying to define the points in the pool. In an illiterate world, most characters would use the points for spoken language only. Indeed, someone could read hieroglyphics without knowing how to speak or understand ancient Egyptian.
It's GM's choice whether those points could be used for unrelated skills.
71)Primal Ooze. An underground river of magma, and water, meet in this cavern to form a large pond of primal ooze. The ooze is not a monster per se, but a soup of amino acids, proteins, and even DNA. It has 2 valuable qualities. First, if even a strand of hair is put in, it will grow into a clone of the original in just a half hour. Reaching the pond will be difficult because of the second quality. Every 1D6 hours a brand new lifeform crawls(or whatever) out. It could be a baby dinosaur, an ooze or jelly, a humanoid, the spores of violet fungus, a humanoid, or any other life form. The Pond will be surrounded by an Eco-system of subterranean creatures. While aberrations are possible, true outsiders are not. Creatures that need sunlight will make a desperate journey to the surface, or perish and be devoured. As this is a wellspring of both homebrewed and extinct species, many druids and experts seek this place.
Standard character creation gives characters 2 languages spoken, written, and read. Thats 4 points. Then you might give double the points of Int. bonus. Wizards get the ability to read and cast their own spells free. Druids get the druidic language free too.
Would that work? I'm trying to figure out the rules crunch.
Most monsters have a patron deity. While being an atheist gets you being targeted by undead and fiends, worshiping Aroden might get The Wormlord to cut you some slack because he was dead once too.

"One of the drunks at the bar suddenly straightened up, and walked over. I think the Wormlord and Asmodius would like the last month of fall to be a rat, rather than a cute little mouse. Perhaps Dogon would be a good choice to name the month after. Just be sure to include our holiday at the end of that month. And watch out for the darkfire vodka. It'll rot your brain!"
Some of the worm people who became druids took the profession pilgrim. They each took a seed from the world tree and sought a great forest to plant it in. If or when the world tree dies it's powers and memories will pass to the next most worthy tree. I'm mentioning this because there is a tree in Freeland, one on the island of Anime(Like Japan, but bigger, the natives have large eyes, and more possibilities for hair color.) and several other large forests. The one in Freeland is a talking bear with little other traits left over from his monstrous ancestors. The natural creatures would rather the war took place somewhere other than Freeland, so they are in.
The Wormlord's Avatar is busy promoting the holiday. The Wormlord has started creating reapers to fetch the souls of the faithful directly, in case there is a problem with the whole death's door thing.
Sense motive is a pass fail. When an NPC is talking, you either see a window which says "Lying" or "Truth", or the window never appears and it's anybody's guess.

31. The Fatigue-u-lator worn for centuries by the rage-meisters of Yaunek, these crude stone amulets have a curious rune etched upon them combining elements of Chaos and Enervation. The device, once attuned to the wearer (requires constant use for 10 minutes before working) is capable of absorbing one instance of Fatigue. However the chaotic nature of the device inflicts the Fatigue back randomly upon the wearer for a duration double that which would normally have affected them.
The greater Fatigue-u-lator absorbs 2 instances of fatigue and then puts the wearer to sleep the next time characters have to wait for someone to finish speaking in game.
A male Medusa who's gaze depetrifies would be handy here.
We have 2 on board with Hadesween. I don't even know when Merlyndas was supposed to happen. As for the worst season, I call it fall because the temperature is falling, lots of rain falls, anything not picked in time falls and rots, and a lot of creatures fall dead. The meeting is about one holiday so the Murmur's comments about all the months of the year was ignored.
You can roll on skills, professions, crafts, and perform checks. While the Rogue is being a cat burglar, the cleric can be healing and feeding the poor, while the bard performs and passes the hat. If they attract a crowd for the medicine man he can get paid for it in tonic(heals one point and stabilizes). If a party member loses a level you can arrange special jobs that earns them XPs.
The Wormlord is meeting with all the other evil gods to design a holiday in the fall. Any place that doesn't honor the dark gods gets beset with undead the rest of the year. "How about kids disguise themselves as us and our monsters and go from door to door demanding unhealthy sweet treats. We could call it Helloween or something. The kids could yell Threat or Treat, Terror or Treat, or something when they are at the door."
470)Beyond The Wall Two brothers, a kid and his older brother, with a frog and a chatty bluebird are looking for Adilade. They think the witch will help them find their way home. Everything they say about where they came from makes no sense. DC 20 knowledge nature to recognize the frog is actually a Grippli.
The Wormlord was not about to give up his hard won godhood. Instead he accelerated his latest project. He had been creating polymorphic symbionts, These grubs could change into any flesh and blood organ, but as the hosts parts failed with age they would split and multiply, eventually replacing the brain and turning the being Chaotic Evil. He made a human of these in his lab in The Wormscape, gave Al Weston dominion over all his works(Many of them won't care), and sent it to the world . He would seek out dying mortals and offer them "Immortality" but they would eventually turn into doppelgangers made of polymorphic symbionts with a taste for raw meat.
The Big Giant Head nearly shattered, but the metal symbiots within repaired him, more fugly than before. He was banished, yet flung physically back. Wild magic crackled around him, turing patches of water to clear steel, tiny fish became huge sea monsters, and patches of sea weed became shambling mounds. The Big Giant Head started to walk home. "Wait till they get a load of me! I've got reality bending powers like some of those dragons." He's gained an alignment of Chaotic Neutral.
45.Great Pyramid As big on the outside as IRL it is a gateway to a massive necropolis in the Land of the Dead. Ex Libis and Pathfinder members are the only people who came back out alive. Once every 100 years the mummies come out in a bizarre parade. It has developed into a yearly Mummies Parade where cults celebrate those who have come before.
The Big Giant Head tucked in his limbs and rolled at the wall near the gate. Made as he was of the head of the original destroyer and grown to a size that part of him could be seen over the wall, he crashed through and is now the problem of the defenders of the maze.
When that one guy is sucked into the orb of oblivion,"Man that hurts. His followers will have to perform the Open Grave if they want him back."
Far away through the 10th dimension the Gods meet in the idea of a tavern. The Wormlord mentions to whatever beings are not avoiding him,"Remove an Archdruid from the world? I created the souls of my wormpeople and the ones who became Druids are lost to me forever. You can kill their bodies but they reincarnate immediately. That's just an amusing joke you tell mortals." The Wormlord laughed in a manner best left unimagined.
Meanwhile, back at the world, Some of the wormpeople have found a flying machine left from the battle. They put in a symbiot and fed it till it reached full size and sent it upward. It hovers over the black dessert at the edge of the atmosphere. It is scanning the desert looking for the source. Worm people are covered with mucus to protect them from their own acid and they cannot live in a dessert. Thunderbird Z is toying with the idea of redirecting a small ice comet to fall right into the desert.
31. Perfect Stone Circle- Legend tells of a glowing disk shaped ship landing on this stone circle. It was manned by feathered serpents, some of which stayed. Among the natives who magically maintain this monument are some Coatl hiding in human form. Once a year you can sight between the stones the constellation Draco where they came from, and from where Quetzalcoatl will return.
Every human, Orc, or goblin they kill is strangely drained of blood. Cult headquarters has a pool of blood that when filled creates an egg that hatches. Unless the horrible caterpillar thing is killed, it will burrow into the world and start eating it out. Breaking out of the now hollow world, in 60 years, it will be a super sized death's head moth.

The WormLord,"While I backed the ritual that brought the symbiots to animate life, they are out of my control. I'm willing to provide support in undead, cultists, and whatever wormpeople still follow me, to both sides. I'm a chaotic evil god."

The Big Giant Head,"Queen Nevara, Leafar may be on some sort of vacation, but the Paladins of Lighton have built up to a full quarter of the population. Would you like me to smash through the Maze of Light so your troops can get into the city quicker?"
