Re: General Game Discussion Thread
It might be your 3rd request, but only the GM can remove you.

Since the person who can remove you is currently absent, the players cannot do anything about it.

PLAYERS

Please refrain from further posts in this game. If you have any comments, please direct them in Private Messages to the GM. I have also removed this game from my sticky list more times than I care to.

Re: General Game Discussion Thread
With all due respect, this game was awesome when we had the DnD rules working for us. Your constant need for change is making it weary even contemplating changing my character.

Xanthe is a greater diety, approaching the point where he is rivalling some of the greatest powers in the universe. Does he need fleshing out more than what can be accomplished by roleplay from this point on?

Re: General Game Discussion Thread
I have always seen more potential in a god game that what has been published. D&D was at the time all that I had to work with so that's what the game used. Over time however I found that I would avoid combat situations because the a lot of the mechanics are not suited for that kind of game. It's suited to a D&D style game but I have always wanted more than just that in a god game. It never really addressed how the gods increased in level which is what I liked in Mongoose's Book of Immortals and I liked the Power Points system in Primal Order.

Totally trying to tie together different elements and making it work in something that suits play by post rpg which is different than a game played around the table. I think the rules should reflect that.

The rules are to handle situations where two immortals need to compete with one another and fleshing out a character I see continues to add to his legend and renown. Xanthe may be a Greater power but there are rival creator gods out there and the higher powers. Plus often in many stories about gods they often overlook and underestimate mortal and immortals of lower power. Actual power varies depending on a number of factors. You must remember in the end Xanthe is only a Greater Power in where he is worshipped.

D&D also never addressed where Gods get their power. Often worship is mentioned but I would include additional sources and open things up.

Still would love feedback from anyone else who is around. I am open to test playing this and work it out and improve on it over time.

Re: General Game Discussion Thread
Might we make a suggestion to start with?

Clear out all players who have requested that we leave them alone.

Then send a PM to all players who have not requested we leave them alone.

Clear out all players who have not replied in one form or another after 2 weeks.

Launch refreshed and renewed after advertising for more players in 3 weeks.

Re: General Game Discussion Thread
Yeah I was kind of talking about that a bit with Chiav Thur too. Not a bad idea with 2 weeks clear out period.

Re: General Game Discussion Thread
....and lo the gates of creation swung open again and the call for those divine and cosmic power left in the void of the Uncreated Night was sent out. No longer kept to a few the words of creation were heard by all who cared to answer them.

In other words trying again to get this off the ground and this time instead of trying to figure it out on my own I am calling in reinforcements.

Re: General Game Discussion Thread
Just trying to get the discussion going again I have started an Apotheosis thread for you. I would like to be able to play the game as we design effectively unlocking additional abilities and so forth for those that participate. I want to keep things moving instead of stagnating as they have been.

Anyone who is still around please respond. There are previous players lurking around who have characters at different levels my thought is to build them from the bottom up unlocking additional abilities, resources etc. But for everyone who is already here I want you all to be able to be on a level playing field as opposed to new players that might come in later. I am thinking each player may have a character at Overpower level (because a few already do) but then they would create their servant powers as well. What do you think? How would it be fair for new players and old players alike?

As I have said before any game worth playing has deadspots. Been in a few that lull here. Have one of my own that I need to decide the fate of. Point being so long as players are willing to play there is some juice. Might be just enough to keep things on life support, but life support is still some semblance of life.
