Caysin steps back up, advancing the Austratir further. He has them form an order to act by and they begin learning how to fight. They now act by the order of The Golden Light. They will soon be able and ready guardians. But first they build the floating island's first and only city, Aviosan. Caysin steps back, admiring his work.
Create Order (The Golden Light): 8
Gather Power: 1d6 + 1 + 4 ⇒ (6) + 1 + 4 = 11
Nisyac shakes the earth beneath a volcano, and as it erupts it spits forth Ignanus, the great being of fire. He is similar to the Ugthaka, but much larger and his rocky skin is riddled with rivers of lava. Nisyac laughs, knowing this is he who will lead the Ugthaka to war.
Create Avatar: 10
Caysin Gather Power: 3d6 + 3 + 2 ⇒ (4, 4, 3) + 3 + 2 = 16
With all of the things going on, including the creating of his own dark reflection, Caysin finally takes a break. He observes the others, storing his power for the time.
Current Power: 16
Nisyac Gather Power: 3d6 ⇒ (4, 6, 5) = 15 That's his 1/age increased power.
Nisyac glowers down at the world with a wicked smile and starts plotting. From the dark cold stones of the mountains he creates the Ugthaka, an evil twisted race that burrows through the ground and eats everything.
Create Race: 6
I suppose my main question is does he gather power on the first turn? It's kind of like "I just summoned something, can it act this round?" From your statement I'm guessing that I have to wait until next turn to have him gather power, and therefore act, yes?
Ah, thank you for reminding me about the "Once per age gather extra power." Completely skipped my mind.
Are you kidding me? I love Fel! The whole "madness of balance" is extremely interesting. I just don't think any god wants to whimper around scared of another god because, well, we're GODS.
Also, to quote, Caysis did not say you weren't scary, he just said he has had drinks that were scarier ;)
Also, I look forward to having this chaotic evil demigod at my power. Gives me a good reason to go wiping out the other races hehe. Poor precursors.
Edit: Scratch that, I think it would actually be very interesting. Caysin is more chaotically inclined than good. But I still need to know if that counts against my limit.
Rawr I'm scary
Caysin stares at Nisyac for a moment. "Oh yes you are scary...Scary brilliant!" Then his ever-present laugh fills the skies. "Excellent! How can one be brave and valiant without a foe to cross swords and battle your wits against? Oh the dance partner is much appreciated!" He looks at the bloody image of his own frame. "A little theatrical, but let no one say I don't appreciate a magic trick. Yes this will work marvelously, oh the domains are brilliant, I swear I can hear them coming from the mouths of Hellknight's as accusations." He grins at the black rose. "Very nice touch."
I didn't realize you could create other gods by ascending avatars, I couldn't find it anywhere in the rules, but it looks interesting. After I get the details of the Austratir drawn up I'll formulate a response.

Physical features: Powerfully build avian race with humanoid bodies and feathered wings. Their skin color varies but their wings are always mostly white with a small amount of color in them.
Culture: Warriors, hunters, and protectors. They protect the Silthilar and in return enjoy their art and healing capabilities. They care little for other races besides the Silthilar.
Alignment Score: LG (Lawful 1, Good 1)
Major Cities: None
Misc: Ability to fly.
Gather Power: 3d6 + 3 + 2 ⇒ (5, 2, 6) + 3 + 2 = 18
Caysin raises the island where the Silthilar are living, letting it rest in the sky. He draws lakes and rivers in the flying island, letting the water run off the side to crash thousands of miles below into the ocean. Finally he plucks a feather from his hat, and from it grows the first of the Austratir, a mighty race of avian warriors. Caysin releases the island from his grasp, and to his surprise it shifts slightly with respect to the world. After a moment he smiles. "Orbit, interesting. Not by design, but this island is going to slowly orbit the world. I suppose that will cause a great deal of reactions when it flies over the mainland, particularly when the water crashes down." He laughs at the entire idea.
Current Power: 2
I'll get the specifics for the race up in discussion soon.

Advance Civilization x16 (Art, Physiology): 80
Caysin examines the birth of the advanced civilization, wincing. "Ooh, about that." He kind of rubs the back of his neck. "Yeah, I was going to make that entire island fly in the sky." He gives her a sheepish look. "But hey, I like the Silthilar! What do you think about sharing the island? I have this idea of an avian race, haven't hammered out the details yet, but they could work well together. The Silthilar's can be the more advanced race while mine can handle the fighting side of things. What do you think?"
Caysin looks perplexed more than anything. "How do the octopus-men function?" He kneels down with a curious smile, poking at it. You get the feeling he's brave to a fault, not knowing when to ere to the side of caution.
Spider-bear, now that's nightmare fuel. Imagine something with the stealth and patience of a spider with all the ferocity and strength of a bear.
"Nightmare? I've had drinks scarier than you!" He laughs, patting whatever he deems is the closest thing to a shoulder in the dark mass. "So you started a god." He turns to Kom. "And you're like me. What's your story? Not trying to be nosy, just getting a grip on all of this. Last thing I remember was fighting to free my people."
Gather Power: 3d6 + 2 + 1 ⇒ (3, 6, 6) + 2 + 1 = 18
Caysin further shapes the peninsula, adding bodies of water and rivers to let the area thrive and spreading the forest. Then he turns his attention to the sea where he raises several large islands near the currents. The Pabthaczil he leaves to their own devices, leaving the race as primitive hunter-gatherers.
Shape Land x5
Current Power: 3
Interesting to see how so many of you are massing power. I can only imagine the massive changes that are all going to happen at once. Caysin, on the other hand, is impulsive and will rarely store power unless there is something very important he needs to do.
I appreciate any and all advice, I'm new to the system and am just learning the ropes.

Physical features: Amphibious race with smooth, slimy skin that ranges from green to blue to red, although other colors exist rarely.
Culture: Hunters and fishers mostly, they protect their families fiercely and make their homes in the cliffs to hide from others. They try not to get involved with other races, but if somebody is in need they might help. They hold no laws but act by the unspoken bids of common decency, believing everything good or evil you do will in turn be directed back at you.
Alignment Score: CG (Chaotic 1, Good 1)
Major Cities: None
Misc: Thrive in the heat, are excellent swimmers and climbers.
Gather Power: 3d6 ⇒ (3, 4, 6) = 13
Caysin comes to his power with little understanding but much joy. He fiercely embraces the possibilities, testing his power quickly.
He takes the southwestern point of the world, shaping the peninsula. Where the coast bends in on the northern shore he creates a vast sandy beach, and flanking it are high cliffs, making the beach the only local point of access. Behind the beach comes forth a dense forest. Then he brings heat from the ground, turning the forest into a humid jungle and making the entire area tropical
He than breathes life into a new race called the Pabthaczil, and amphibious race that thrives in the heat and makes their homes in the sides of the cliffs.
Shape Land: 3 points
Current Power: 2
How do you handle the map editing? Do you want us to change it or are you in charge of that?
Also, can we freely converse with each other as gods? Sorry, don't quite entirely have the grasp of the system yet. Please do point out anything I'm doing wrong or could improve upon.
