on the document, there's no option for Cil'dr's if you die and made a deal with Cil'dr you go to Visgar and help other followers.

oh and in relationship, I like Zodaxus, we both favor revolution and dislike slavery.

Then that means I forgot, dude. Add it.

I added some, but the excel sheet appears to be an enigma to me, some of the formatting doesn't work for me, such as being unable to bold thing... (the bold button appears to do nothing)

edit: just copy pasted from elsewhere for the formatting.

edit: this document is going to be more accurate than my profile page, later might put a link there instead of domains and all that shiz.

I have a bit of a problem with them myself :o
And Scrapeknee definitely provides an afterlife in Spiral Haven. He doesn't really turn folks to Proteans so much as they are souls with protean like abilities.


Been brainstorming a bit since Tharros isn't a party person and wasn't invited anyway. The "Liked by" section in the spreadsheet is even empty. You're hurting poor Tharros' feelings guys. =(

Anyways, just some ideas for interacting with Tharros, his herald, or his followers that I thought might work if anyone was interested in roleplaying them out. Open to any interesting scenarios anyone else might have that could possibly involve Tharros or someone under his control.

Osoro:
Thought we could bump the conflict over one of his wives up to modern day or at least more recently and act it out. Figured it could reveal a bit about both of their personalities.

Babaki:
Maybe do some world building and have a conflict arise between our followers? My initial thoughts were to have two competing apocalypse cults fighting it out, one that is actively trying to bring destruction to their home world - summoning eldritch horrors and whatever else they can get their hands on - and one that wants it to end the 'right' way. Open to suggestions.

Atheos:
Could have Barakus show up with a spirit or two that died worshiping you. Not for sure how your character would react to that but I thought it might be funny to have the atheist god getting confirmation that people are starting to worship him as a deity.

Adriel:
When I made Barakus, I pictured him as a paladin so I was thinking he may have once been a follower of yours that got a little overzealous in his crusade to protect lives. Having him drop off the spirits of a few exceptional mortals for Adriel to watch over could spark an interesting conversation.

The invitation was extended to you in the discussion forum provided you did not kill anything while you were at the party, meaning that you'll have to turn off that thing where supposedly touching you makes someone die

(Atheos doesn't *dislike* you, but he's not convinced that you and Ishalla are separate entities, since he never sees both of you in the same room).

Heh, go for it, Tharros. That sounds about right—Atheos protects those who follow his teachings, but anyone who tries to actually *worship* him has lost his favor—he won't protect them or show them special favor, and they'll go to whatever afterlife they were destined for. (Since Atheos is concerned with preserving the natural laws, I have him as generally directing dead souls towards either Tharros and the Blisslands, Ishalla and reincarnation, or Axis to become Axiomites, at their own choice, only keeping the ones he really likes to become Librarians).


Hello y'all! I want apologize for not posting as much as I used to do. Work has been very busy but I had planned to play a lot of catch up today since it was my day off. However, this morning my mom called me this morning around 8:30 am to let me know that our dog Deedee was bitten by a snake last night (I live separately from my parents in my own house but we had Deedee before I moved out). She called me about an hour or so ago to let me know that the vet thinks Deedee will make it but she'll be swollen up a good bit for a while. The snake bit her on her upper lip. But she seems to be doing okay from what my mom said. Deedee is on a great deal of medicines to help the swelling and all. We have to take her back his Friday so the vet can check her again just to be safe.

So I'm emotionally drained a bit so I apologize. I'll try and post sometime tonight hopefully. Again I just wanted to let everyone know. Thank y'all for understanding.

Don't worry, Tharros. No one likes Babaki either, and he's doing alright!

Sounds good to me! I'm thinking about a sect within Babaki's worshipers who believe that they could earn demigodhood by bringing catastrophic destruction to a world in Babaki's name. Sound good to you?

@Adriel: Thanks for letting us know!


You're welcome! I'm probably going to try and write up some ideas to post when I get a chance.

As a rule, I like dogs better than most people, so hope she has a swift and safe recovery!

This is Zodaxian-level awesome. Tharros, something like this should actually be a thing. I definitely think we should be able to interact in the same place, but maybe only under certain conditions, and with specific limitations. I'd like to come up with more 'real-world' evidence of our duality.

Adriel - No worries; post when you can. Glad your pup is doing okay. The response rate here is higher than my own (very limited) experience with PbP, so I'm doing my best to keep up myself, and very well may slow down at times as my own life gets in the way.


@Atheos & Adriel Mind if I have Barakus' escorting the spirits to Atheos' realm take place during Adriel's visit? Two birds with one stone and all that. Plus it gets me in on whatever story Adriel is planning.

@Ishalla That's perfectly fine with me. Tharros spends the vast majority of his time not even being consciously aware of the realms anyway. Could have it be that Ishalla is the form the dual-minded being is funneling most of its power into at almost all times while Tharros just sort of runs on auto pilot. Tharros 'waking up' and exerting any kind of influence could possibly negatively effect Ishalla and potentially vice versa if they're both trying to accomplish goals simultaneously.

@Babaki Yep, sounds fine to me. I just had this image of two opposing cults trying to bring about the end times looking at one another and pouting because "You're doing it wrong." Makes me smile. I'll probably get around to typing up the backdrop tomorrow and we can see what develops from there, unless it's something you would like to handle. If not, anything you want to add or have included in the setting?


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

You can if you want, though I'm not sure if Atheos is used to souls showing up very often in his library (escorted, or not); he usually picks out his servants from among pre-existing Axiomites, some of whom may have once been mortal.

It could be your little version of the Blood War.

What are you talking about? I brought the gift of endless reason! Tharros brought the same Gift he brings everywhere!

@Vortae: Elemental planes don't belong to any gods and generally aren't subject to fights for control, so I'm not too worried about what we wind up doing with those.

EDIT: I'm an idiot. Link changed to one you should be able to edit.

I including this on this page just to get it on this page so I don't have to go back to the last page when I want to look at it. Makes things a bit easier when I'm on my phone, which I will be a lot for the next couple of days because I'm going to be going on vacation, leaving Friday morning and returning Tuesday afternoon. I'm going to still try to post then, but I won't be able to do anything fancy, and my posts might have a mild case of autocorrect.

Also, Ishalla, just to check, would it make you uncomfortable if Zodaxus where to blatantly hit on you? I tried to hint in my relations post that he has a kind of childish crush on you. Are there any limits I should know about before addressing you about that in character? I don't want to invite you to the back room if you're not okay with that.

Q: What's the difference between trying to make advances on Vortae and trying to make advances on a floor lamp?

A: There's a possibility you can make the floor lamp turned on.


Goddess of Life & Divine Protector of Nature

Zodaxus - I have half a post drummed up responding in kind; your advances are fine. You may (hopefully) have to compete with any other deities Ishalla can get worked up, but that's yet to be seen (don't go spoiling it now). I'm thinking at this point her interactions with Michazra might be equal parts flirting & stabbing.

EDIT: Too many things at once; time for bed. Saved the post in docs, I'll throw it up early(ish) tomorrow.

Michazra wrote:
Ishalla... I will find your weakness, and destroy you...
Yes! I mean... the other way around... but yes! I was going to suggest we have some sort of battle elsewhere while attending the party. I'm gonna see if I can prompt that in-game ;)

Yes, this party offers some fun opportunities to showcase the relationship between Bi*challa and Mica-chan!

So, right now Mica's +1 is trying to spy Ishalla while Mica is 'immersed in lies'. The idea is that Mica lies away her presence, making her difficult to be detected by other Gods. Of course it's up to you to decide whether Ishalla notice her or not.

You could prompt something by revealing a possible weakness (eg. relationships Mica could use against her, some important follower Mica could turn against her, even a food allergy could work!) and see how Mica reacts.

Or you could charm the spy and make Mica furious. That'd definitely be interesting!

Atheos is just generally concerned by the idea of mother nature herself flirting with dudes at a party... o.O

Seriously; what else would Mother Nature do at a party...?


Goddess of Life & Divine Protector of Nature

I actually sent Ishalla into the party with inspiration from Piers Anthony's representation of Mother Nature in his Incarnations of Immortality series of books. One of her powers is to directly control the level of lust a mortal creature feels at any given moment, to the point of literally driving men mad.

Micha - I was planning to 'unintentionally' drop a weakness (which will likely happen yet), but I like the idea of charming the mortal first... heheheh.

This game is too much fun. & I love how we're all still figuring out our deities' exact parameters.

So, as has been observed, we've got no weather/elemental gods, no Neutral Neutral gods (!!!), and we're missing a few other staples besides. We've got no explicit war gods, for example - a few who kinda border on that, but no, you know "war gods." Agricultural and civic gods are in a similar position.

Maybe we want to chariot in a couple more gods, somehow? Would it be too much for us to have, like, one "alt" each?

*asks for Ghaunadaur in the weirdest letter to Santa Claus ever*


I say we throw out some of the evil NPC gods (do we need 3 LE NPC Gods?), and bring some True Neutral ones instead. I recommend grabbing Gozreh from Golarion.

Alt Gods could also be an option, like Vortae said.


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

I thought Bane was technically a war god? Just not one that good people liked.

Atheos and Lathander are both gods of invention and debate, so that probably covers "civic" well enough to survive. (And I thought Lathander had agriculture? If not, one of us can try to move in that direction; maybe a recently-deceased god held one of the positions).

We've got a pantheon about the same size as Golarion. People could try creating new gods, but Atheos will sternly oppose that idea.


There is actually a storyline reason there are only twenty Gods (it's a hard cap) and there is deliberately a lack of symmetry and balance among them. The Gods don't exist to hold the world in balance or to cover every portfolio like they do in most worlds but rather seem to exist just to fulfill their own desires. There is a storyline reason for this as well though neither this nor the reason there can only be twenty Gods is something the Gods are aware of yet in game, they don't know even if they have any purpose beyond just existing.


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

Actually, I see this as something of an opportunity. There could be some demi-gods of war, weather, or the sea laying around. And our characters could be their moms, pops, or patrons.

With your Divine ability to create Demigods at will that makes sense, it also makes sense to me if the Gods set about "filling in" the conceptual holes left by the actual Gods, as trying to create order from chaos is a typical drive of the conscious mind. (even Scrapeknee's chaos has an ordered fairness about it, it often seems, tending toward justice and humor rather than just true randomness.)

It's bad elements like Zodaxus that ruin a guy.

Also, I'm more comfortable writing the whimsical nice stuff. I'm sure Scrapeknee has sunk a city or two, or made some nasty monsters hither and yon :)

I may send you a list of demi-god off spring for Scrapeknee to see if any meet your approval

Lol.

Feel free to post a list but really you don't need my approval, you can create Demigods at will, though there may be some duplicates if you make setting specific demigods I already have serving other Gods.

Mmm, I'm having trouble finding it but it's probably my amazing RL ability to miss the obvious


Atheos is probably referring to the "Creations/Destructions" sheet.

Though I must say it's not 100% what you are looking for... maybe a new sheet for "Demigods/Heralds"?

@Tharros: Sounds good to me! I'm fine with you writing it up.


God of the Depraved

I'm kind of thinking of changing myself a bit to become sort of a more general god of civilization, especially since we got so many thief and assassin gods.


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

Yeah. I was going with rogues too, but now I think instead of theft, I may have them bend more towards disguise and pretense, with at least as many bards/actor types


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

I sure hope my fiction and world contributions are getting Scrapeknee some experience points.

How is Scrapeknee supposed to steal portfolios from Cyric otherwise? :)

I decided to trade up from thieves and rogues to spies and assassins.

Cil'dr, you've definitely got a brutal, "survive at all costs" approach to civilizations; maybe you'd want to expand your portfolio to include, say, communism and authoritarianism, instead of just "cities in general"?
