Default Omnipotent 2 (Chapter I) Main Game thread.

Hear the voice of the Bard,
Who present, past, and future, sees;
Whose ears have heard
The Holy Word
That walked among the ancient trees;

Calling the lapsed soul,
And weeping in the evening dew;
That might control
The starry pole,
And fallen, fallen light renew!

'O Earth, O Earth, return!
Arise from out the dewy grass!
Night is worn,
And the morn
Rises from the slumbrous mass.

'Turn away no more;
Why wilt thou turn away?
The starry floor,
The watery shore,
Is given thee till the break of day.'

This is the game thread.

First two posts are reserved for rules, opening flavour, and important informations.

Rules:


Read these, and obey them and we will have no problems. First one is what I say goes. If you feel I'm being harsh, unfair or unsporting or anything then by all means PM me and I'll be happy to discuss things and alter any action I may have taken accordingly, however, until such a time anything that I state is considered immutable fact and law written into the fabric of time space and reality.

The next one. No super godmodding. It is a sandbox, and your characters do have unlimited power to use upon the mortal world. However, do be considerate with this. There are other players in the game too. If you smite a village fine. We can deal with that. If you are however systematically wiping out all the followers of another player, then not only will they have something to say about it, but you may evoke the wrath of other.

That said, you can more or less do what you wish, be as interfering or laissez-faire as you choose. As the knowledge of Gods is more or less a given in the mortal world, you can be sure that revealing yourself to someone isn't going to phase them. That said, it doesn't guarantee their worship either.

Mechanics:


The game thread will be relatively simple I hope. Everyone gets to post in any order. However, to ensure that no-one gets bogged down with everyone posting behind them NO-ONE Is allowed to post any more than twice until I have posted. So essentially, everyone has two posts per "round" as it were, then when I post the next "round" as it were will begin etc. Note that this is different to "Chapters" which are part of the story.

Any form of actual fighting between gods, as it has the likely hood of confusing people will take place in a separate thread (Which will be created as of when it is needed. (assuming I'm allowed to do this?)) I'm hoping that this thread will keep all battles relatively short so there's no waiting around. The outcome of the battles in the thread will decide how gameplay progresses in the main thread. I.e. the victor can continue with their grand plan etc. The loser cannot.

On the subject of PM's, I may use these for any number of reasons, to prod you and say you need to post something, to offer a reminder that your people are deserting you or any other reason. Please ensure your PM box has enough space therefore, in case I do need to PM you anything.

Statistics and rather important stuff:

During the game your actions will have various effects on the mortal realm, in this post are some statistics that you may wish to pay attention to. This is an explanation of them:
Population: The total number of population approximately.
Percentage of believers: This shows how much of the population believes in your deities, and then this will be broken down to how many believe in an individual deity’s well, some may believe in more than one deity however (read: my calculations may suck, so bear with me :P)
Strength of Faith: This will be an average gauge of how strong the faith is, which is different to belief, and somewhat more important. Again this will be broken down.
Fear/Praise: Will change depending on how benevolent you are.

All of these statistics will fluctuate somewhat, depending on your actions, events and whenever I feel like it, though do note, any random fluctuations are likely to be very small, whereas events and your actions will have more of an effect on them.
