hmmm, i guess I just find it weird to only have 1 million followers if the universe is old.

but I am undoubtedly as old as sapient life if.

I also find it funny that several people seem to think I do what i do for myself to survive at all costs, but I'm really only interested in my followers survival.

Age-wise, I see Babaki as the type to be extremely coy about when and how he came about. Asking him will get you a different story each time. He could be an ascended Demon Lord, a notorious mortal serial killer granted godhood, a creature born from mortal's frustrations, a god of joy and laughter corrupted by the Elder Evils, or a primordial force of madness given the form of a clown, all depending on how creative he feels when asked. It can at least be said that he's younger than Vortae and older than Cyric, even though that really isn't saying much.

But how did he get those scars?

Zodaxus' back story meets he definitely post dates Asmodeus' descent into evil and clearing out of the elder evils. It explicitly references the nine hells existing basically as they do now. In addition, his backstory requires the night birds to have been enslaved to a space staring civilization for a considerable amount of time. I imagine him being hundreds of thousands or millions of years old but not tens of millions. I imagine the Nightbirds spend at least a few billion years from their perspective in the hell flask, though that may have been affected by some kind of time acceleration to make them suffer more, thus getting more magical energy.

Like I said, in absolutely any case, sapient life was well underway by the time he came on the scene, meaning he's younger than anything as old or older than sapient life.

What we want, is the god who gave him those scars...

wait, sorry, I drifted into Magnificent 7 turf for a second there


Michazra would be played by... I dunno, Kristen Stewart or Angelina Jolie? I don't know many female actors. Theme music would probably be I Want It All, by Queen.

NPC Gods:

On Asmodeus: "I don't see how or why our paths would ever cross on bad terms. In fact, I'd imagine that he would appreciate a little necromancy to spice up his game. In return I would get an ally on my crusade against Tharros. I don't particularly like the idea of oppression as it may ruin someone's ambitions, but I'm willing to see past that."

On Bane: "Fear and hatred are strong emotions. Strong emotions create strong ambitions. Bane and I could have some deals to make..."

On Cyric: "I can't stand someone else also being a God of lies! He's a self-centered bastard who might ruin my plans of undeath. You never know with insane Gods like him. I don't disagree with him, but he might be a threat nonetheless."

On Helm: "Yes, you just keep watching and defending. Just don't interfere when the plague of undeath spreads across the worlds."

On Lathander: "What is so wrong with undeath that every other God loathes it and the other half dislikes it? I'll try to lie my way out of her ire if possible."

On Lolth: "She enforces the survival of the fittest, which naturally strengthens ambitions and greed. Delightful!"

On Loviatar: "Agony and suffering? Why, those are some strong emotions that can easily bolster mortal ambitions. And I cannot deny the earthly pains that undeath may incur."

On Mystra: "Necromancy is magic, and if she respects the art I can share it with her."

On Shar: "Undead have darkvision, I'll be fine."

As I had anticipated, Mica will have easier time dealing with NPC Gods than player gods.


I hereby found the divine organization to stand against Tharros. We'll call it Deities Against Tharros And Such Society, or DAT ASS for short.

Members: Michazra

Potential members: Babaki, Cil'dr, several NPC Gods

By the way, in the relations entries for Zodaxus, a lot of people seem to be under the impression he doesn't meddle in affairs much. Make no mistake, he has masterminded countless violent military campaigns which have toppled large empires, small empires, and medium sized emlires. Any evil god has probably had a state of theirs attacked by his followers, Cil'dr being the most likely exception. Zodaxus is an incredibly active and interventionist God.


"Lord of Atheism" | Not-a-Lesser-God | Attack 3d6, Defense 5d6, HP 40

Right-atheos doesn't care about that as much as the fact that zodaxus is decent enough to help people even without them praying to him.


Didn't know what to do for my intro post since Tharros is largely a reactionary god, so I just told the story of how he acquired his herald, Barakus, the Endless Mourner. He's technically a demigod that protects the spirits of the dead until they can reach their resting places and assures that their final place in the Blisslands is safe. Much like Tharros, Barakus is blind in the traditional sense, his eyes clouded by visions and the unending trickle of tears -- both sorrowful and joyful -- that have never stopped since witnessing the Blisslands.

IMO, it worked pretty well for you to take that tactic. It made the introduction Tharros needed, and gave him a herald at the same time while shoring up the concept overall.

Now all we need is Ishalla and Vortae to post in gameplay, and I think everyone will be in

Thanks. I have a feeling a good portion of my posts will probably be done as a servant, a worshipper, or some other entity rather than the god himself if I ever want to interact with anyone. No one ever comes to visit poor Tharros. =(

Yeah, I've just been impeded by the ongoing personal problems that keep dimming my mind's eye and the fact that I'm still finding Vortae's 'voice' to a large degree.


In terms of age, Adriel would be a middle-aged deity. Not as old as the universe, but he's not an ascended mortal either.

And btw, what would everyone's opinion be if the Temple of Elemental Evil was thrown into the mix? Just curious.

BTW, and this is a question for the GM, will we be seeing the Spellplague and Time of Troubles events or have those already happened?

Also, after checking my research, Lolth does not like other gods. She really doesn't like it when some deity tries to convert some of her drow.


"Lord of Atheism" | Not-a-Lesser-God | Attack 3d6, Defense 5d6, HP 40

Do people want me to make a spreadsheet of all deity information for easy comparison? That seems like a good idea.

* * *

As for the other gods, I don't see much reason to list them out individually. Atheos sees Lathandar and Mystra as okay folks, though Helm would definitely be his least favorite of the three other Paladin gods, due to the Watcher's lack of personality and also the fact that despite his knowledge and foresight he provides no insight or clarity to others.

The rest of the NPC gods follow a pretty common power—evil entities bent on slaughter or domination (and definitely fall in the SHOULD not exist category). There are a LOT of nasty, self-serving gods out there in this pantheon who might be unredeemable, which I think REALLY helps explain the origin of Atheos’s beliefs and his general dislike of all organized religions before his ascension.

Scrapeknee and Michazra, you've been replaced as Atheos's special least favorites by Shar and Cyric, deities who actively seek to obfuscate knowledge itself.

You can if you wish.

And yes Cyric has caused a great deal of problems for everyone!

Of course there are worst enemies than him...the power behind the Temple of Elemental Evil for example.


Goddess of Life & Divine Protector of Nature

Mother of Beasts, checking in; gameplay intro to come shortly. Sorry for the late arrival.

I'll share the thoughts on other gods after the intro post, just a couple call-outs here.

Osoro:

We do share an affinity for cats, as well as a sense of protection over life; I was thinking former lovers? Ishalla, rising into awareness as a god, would easily become enamored with the more experienced (& similarly aligned) Osoro.

His pleasantly placid demeanor would, however, eventually grate on her as insipid laziness. She would come to resent his languid ways, and they would separate (amicably; with enmity?).

Otherwise a similar cause for separation works for Ishalla as Osoro's daughter. That route would, pending others' approval, then make Osoro the father of Life & Death (as immortal beings, embodying the mortal 'forces'). Just implications to consider.

Tharros:

Definitely on board. I think that sort of cosmic-sibling, shared duality could add a lot to both profiles. Ishalla as the wild struggle that is mortal life and Tharros the inevitable formality of death all such beings face.

Will Attend, perhaps on the discussion thread rather than the gameplay one.

note: this will only be a sliver of my form. My +1 will will be a shadow who sacrificed 12,489 goats across his lifetime(trying to encourage more sacrificing).

yes, in his reply it appears he actually wrote everything in the quotation marks. though he doesn't understand the meaning of it.


Male God of Lions, Families, Protection and Polyamory

Ishalla former lover works for me. Maybe the only one that he never married.


Goddess of Life & Divine Protector of Nature

When I started writing that intro, I was thinking 'Princess Mononoke,' but now I'm really pleased with where it went. Still, Ishalla is totally gonna go Wolf Princess on some poor bastards.

Osoro Well I better be 'The One' of something, Mr. 91+ Wives!

Ishalla will likely show up for a portion of the party; mostly because she sees Zodaxus as a rather sensitive creature, and she doesn't want to hurt his feelings.

Despite her claim to the title First Mother, as Scrapeknee pointed out, Ishalla is fairly young, being only as old as mortal life.

She'd likely be played by Angelina Jolie, with some badass makeup & costume effects to make her all primal & cat-like.

I initially read that as "In-character response: A small two-headed dragon about the size of a large house cat."

Which seems somewhat in-character for Scrapeknee...

(Still, it *does* seem like a good opportunity to discuss "the Cyric situation", although I don't know when gods are supposed to move forward with contacting each other and whatnot)

P.S. Signature spells are interesting, and totally something in Golarion, hmm (though they're usually very low-level). I guess I'll need to decide between some sort of Lesser Wish, a custom Rebuke spell, or something like "Protection from/Magic Circle Against Divinity"

Liberty's Edge

The Dark Liberator, The Last of the Nightbirds, Lord of Epic Awesomeness, Greatest Dancer in the Universe and That's Just a Fact

Zodaxus already has "Zap of Freedom" associated with him. I don't know if it's too powerful for a signature spell because it's hard to figure out what level it probably is. On one hand, it's basically useless unless you deliberately set out to arrange the very narrow conditions under which it can be used, doing so being something which requires the whole party's cooperation. On the other hand, it breaks open fundamental facts of the universe, going so far as to allow the literal embodiments of various alignments to occupy their polar opposites, giving certain relatively basic rules of how the universe works the middle finger.

In other words, it's not practical enough to be a high level spell, as it'd be a waste of a spell slot. It's also not humble enough to be a low level spell. Perhaps it's a spell-like ability exclusive to the Freedom Zapper prestige class? If so, it might not be suitable as a signature spell, as maybe those should be more common? Perhaps Zodaxus' official sig spell could be "Summon Awesome?" It kinda has the opposite problem, in that it's so weak it could only really be a cantrip.

Perhaps a low-level attack spell revolving around moonlight? Ooh, better idea: I could make it like Magic Missile in 5e where you can cast it as a spell of any level and you make it better when you do.

Also, wouldn't "Magic Circle Against Divinity" be like a 9th level spell at least? I mean, gods are very powerful. Meaningfully warding them off would require something very powerful, even if it's merely through some discouragement like how they don't want to kill the elder evils because it will get their wills dirty.


Goddess of Life & Divine Protector of Nature

I got my inspiration for "Ishalla's Love" from "Zap of Freedom," Zodaxus, so thanks for that.

I was simply referring to a spell typically associated with Ishalla & her followers when I said "signature," I didn't realize it referred to a class of spells already in existence (which I'm having trouble finding). Coincidentally, Ishalla's Love may work perfectly as her clergy's signature spell, as it would likely be a low mid-level spell (I'm thinking 3rd level divine).

But I do really like the idea of scaling power levels. At their choice, a powerful druid could manifest Ishalla's Love in such a way that living creatures affected would be unable to attack any other living creature for a period of time, due to their heightened awareness of the "Web of Life" (this game is gonna require so many damn definitions).

I think Zap of Freedom as a spell-like ability (or class-specific spell) for your Freedom Zappers is a good idea. It could definitely function as a signature spell, except it does seem to be a bit too powerful with the literal breaking of the alignment system.

That said, we are deities. I believe there's likely a point after which adhering to the set rules for Pathfinder etc will actually detract from our gameplay. Defining "signature spells" as being within a particular power range could be one of those points.


"Lord of Atheism" | Not-a-Lesser-God | Attack 3d6, Defense 5d6, HP 40

Zodaxus—If you want to balance Freedom Zap, you could do it as similar to Atonement, with a Freedom Zap, Lesser/Greater at different power levels (like with Asmodeus's Fiendish Healing)

Also, probably now Magic Circle Against Dogma. Just like Magic Circle against Evil, except it wards against creatures capable of casting divine magic or summoned by it. Super useful, but still a low level scale in power-level.


God of the Depraved

mine... honestly would be create food/water...

the thing is though... i'm not the kind of god to give out spells...


"Lord of Atheism" | Not-a-Lesser-God | Attack 3d6, Defense 5d6, HP 40

Cil'dr—your followers are supposed to rely on you for their very survival. Of all of us, you seem like the one *most* willing to give out spells.


Male (Usually) Deity of Change and Chance, Transformation and Chaos

Maybe there's some sort of ritual involved to let them know it's never free? minor blood letting etc?

Cil'dr's call, of course


Hm...Still deciding on my herald. Most likely a solar angel paladin or a hound archon.

Lawful good and neutral good angels as well as archons serve Adriel, and hm...well there are a few neutral good azatas who serve him as well but not many. I think some agathions also serve him as well but again not many.

Also since Avalon is the resting place of many brave heroes who are sleeping until they are needed once more some of those heroes might serve other gods and thus this creates a chance for others to approach Adriel about this or him approaching one of y'all for permission to take one of your heroes to sleep in Avalon.

Just an idea.


Male (Usually) Deity of Change and Chance, Transformation and Chaos

I think most souls Scrapeknee deals with are probably too chaotic for Avalon, but if he finds an exception he'd consider it.


"Lord of Atheism" | Not-a-Lesser-God | Attack 3d6, Defense 5d6, HP 40

@Adriel: Your focus on equality/justice over a hierarchy of laws suggests that Archons might be more favored/common in Avalon than Angels. Just a thought.


Well it does say in the Bestiary that angels can be any type of good. But since Adriel accepts neutral good worshippers and priests he might have angels serving him. He is called the Angelic Paladin after all.

Liberty's Edge

The Dark Liberator, The Last of the Nightbirds, Lord of Epic Awesomeness, Greatest Dancer in the Universe and That's Just a Fact

Managed to split "Zap of Freedom" into disparate elements.

Remove Urges: Removes the natural desire or tendency found in certain creatures to be evil or neutral. This does not enable them to embrace non-evil alignments if such alignments are hard requirements for their species. It merely removes non-binding tendencies to be of a certain alignment. This version may be cast on already good-aligned creatures to remove natural urges or temptations toward Law, Chaos, Neutrality or Evil which some such creatures may despise and wish to be rid of.

Remove Limitations: Removes hard requirements that a member of a given species be evil or neutral. This does not remove natural desires the creature might have to cause chaos or destruction, but frees them such that it is technically possible for them to embrace other alignments if they so choose. This has no effect on creatures which can even theoretically exist in some good alignment without magical assistance.

Urge Introspection: Causes neutral or evil creatures to re-examine their philosophical and moral outlook on life and the universe, but does not allow them to move to an alignment they could not have in principle embraced before, and does not remove any natural tendencies to embrace evil or neutral alignments. The final choice of alignment after the creature’s period of introspection is its own and is not necessarily in line with what the creature who cast the spell would desire. It is, however, possible to influence a creature toward a certain alignment. Creatures in their periods of introspection will be friendly and willing to discuss philosophical issues with proponents of a variety of points. A DC 10 Diplomacy check or a Bluff check whose DC is the result of a sense motive roll by the creature will increase the odds of the creature finally settling on the check-maker’s alignment by about ten percent, plus another ten percent per 5 points by which the check is succeeded. Such a check represents a conversation lasting at least two hours, and can only be made up to twice per day. Failing the check by 5 or more points leaves the creature less disposed to the check-maker’s alignment. If the check was a diplomacy check, this reduces the final chance of the creature embracing your alignment by 5%. If it was a bluff check, it is instead reduced by 15%.

Examples:

“Remove Urges” Used Alone: Unassisted, remove urges removes the natural bloodlust from many beings who are evil by probability rather than hard necessity. It removes the werebeast’s lust for bloodshed, calm’s the orc’s destructive tendencies and removes the goblin’s urge to kill and maim. In the short term, this may seem, and in fact is, of little use on a creature who has not already changed its ways. However, some inherently evil creatures hit with this ability graduate toward the Neutral equivalents of their alignments over time as causing pain and destruction ceases to be especially fulfilling for them. Over time, some of them might even come to embrace goodness if forces external to the spell bring them to favor it. The spell by itself, however, only removes a barrier to such an occurrence. It does not induce it.

“Remove Limitations” Used Alone: Unassisted, remove limitations erases hard limits on a creature’s alignment, but does not remove its tendencies toward its natural alignment. With this alone cast on a creature such as a devil or a daemon, the absolute requirement that it belong to its signature alignment is removed, but unless it had no urges toward its own alignment beyond this hard limit, it is likely to tend toward it heavily. In other words, the effect of this ability used by itself is limited.

“Urge Introspection” Used Alone: Beings whose alignments have harsh limits begin to question their philosophy, but never depart from it, as it is definitionally impossible for them to do so. They will think seriously about changing their alignment, but will not actually do so. They might not, however, be aware that they returned to their original philosophy because of requirement, instead believing they were subjected to a more advanced version of this spell. Beings whose alignments are hampered by tendencies will question them on an intellectual level. This might cause them to overcome their natural urges, but this effect by itself does not remove them. Beings whose alignments are not restricted or who already embrace a philosophy atypical of their species are just as compelled to question their philosophy by this spell as anyone else and may validly be targeted by it.

“Remove Urges” and “Remove Limitations” Used Together: In combination, these effects remove all requirements and tendencies toward an alignment but do not urge or compel the creature affected to question it beyond simply allowing them to. A devil struck by this effect would be effected very similarly to a werewolf struck by “Remove Urges” alone. It would not questions its beliefs initially, but it would no longer find the same satisfaction in performing evil that it once did, and would feel no natural urges to do so.

“Remove Urges” and “Urge Introspection” Used Together: This combination causes any creature without a hard restriction on its alignment to lose any natural inclinations toward any given alignment and to enter a period of introspection in which it seriously questions its philosophical and moral outlook and behavior. It technically has the same effect on a creature with such a hard restriction, but as with “urge introspection” used alone, the creature cannot break free of its alignment unless “Remove Limitations” is later cast on it.

“Remove Limitations” and “Urge Introspection” Used Together: This combination allows a creature to embrace alignments currently forbidden by its species and causes it to engage in a period of introspection which might lead it to do so, but unless it was merely the species requirement which caused it to be evil or neutral and no natural desire or urge, the creature will still tend toward its original alignment.

“Remove Urges,” “Remove Limitations,” and “Urge Introspection” Used Together: This combination removes all limits or tendencies of any kind toward any alignment and causes the creature to engage in a period of introspection during which it will re-evaluate its moral outlook.

Zodaxus would leave that choice up to the person in question. He would prefer his followers stay in his realm to party eternally but would not stop them from seeking another fate if they wanted it.


One other thing I should point out is that you can't spy on Adriel when he's in Avalon. This isn't his doing but the plane's doing! Avalon has existed before him and once was the home of ancient and now forgotten deities. The nine sisters ie nuns and the lady of the lake have maintained it until Adriel arrived. They still maintain it when he's not around. Also evil beings are not able to get near it and why would they when the lake is 100% holy water! And the mists are also holy! I'm trying to incorporate Arthurian Avalon in here so bear with me.

Also would anyone be opposed to the idea of Adriel uncovering a scheme where the temple of elemental evil and the cult of dragon are in cahoots with one another?

Also, who's keeping an afterlfie in their plane, and who's not? (I know Adriel is, and Atheos isn't; I might just try to read up on this for the other deities).


Great party you have there, Zodaxus. It'd be a shame if someone uninvited were to crash it.

If that's all right OOC, that is.

Other Gods cannot perceive inside your Divine Realm or enter without your permission. If they try to force their way in they are initiating a fatal contest as your Realm is a direct extension of your Will so they prolly never will as no God wants to deal with that life risking drama.

On another note feel free to narrate the doings of villainous organizations and their plots, though if it involves another (PC) Gods minions you should ask permission first.
