If a God 'dies' is the domain still available to steal or would it then fall under the rules of normally adding a domain?

Also: do the 10 ap points that need to be spent have to spent at one time or can they be spread out?

It depends on the nature of the God's death.

The 10 so can be spread out it just makes more sense to keep them huddlef together but it is not necessary.

Abraoigi, are you asking about Gods who die due to lack of playing for 3 weeks?

Because I would think that one would not be allowed to "steal" the domain like one would after RCR, given those circumstances...

Not for a cheaper price than 10, anyway...

There is a specific action to grab a domain from a dead god the memorialize domain costs 10 ap.  if however you battled someone through rcr and beat him when he has one domain left you could kill him and get a domain for cheaper.

Okay so of I understand correctly: stealing from a dead God is circumstantial, or would be memorialize action (10 ap) and stealing from a live God is the result of RCR which depends on the assists available to each God.

I have a feeling a war may start soon so I'm trying to get as much of an understanding of the mechanics of that as possible

From your rules:


The First World
An unnamed planet born from the Creator's power, the First World is unique in that powerful divine beings are unable to walk upon it. Only Demigods may set foot upon the First World, any Deity who is of higher rank must act through an Avatar if they wish to physically touch the First World. Even more powerful Deities find their own divine actions too powerful for the First World, forcing Greater and Elder Deities to act through Exarchs to perform any action on the First World.



But that's the only mention of exarchs that I see...

Oh now I understand. The exarch is an act that I am planning on revealing later as it is a bit more complicated than a straight avatar.  It is basically another word for a divine assistant.

There is this applicant who's God is based around this one idea. I'll let you guy's read it as I am personally conflicted and I need at least one other eye on this.


Proposed:The Eternal City

a divine city instead of a divine plane for my god.

A large city with high quality building and infrastructure that resides in the First World .If you have read Berserk , like the city Griffith summoned upon descending as a god .Or like the Imperial Capital in the Elder Scrolls .
My character will be connected and be part of the city and, if you permit me , perhaps use it as instead of having a Plane, essentially the inside of the city walls being his Plane . This will mean that laws and control of them will reside in my hands like in a proper Plane .

I would then like to use the city in many ways , enticing the gods to participate in games : for example
-proclaim a battle royal for civilizations of mortals guided by gods .
Then create a small isolated continent and then initiate the game .

Since all gods that will participate will be required to pay for a certain amount of divinity it would be easy to create a divine artifact as a reward and create the large island/small continent with their energy.

For the mortals participating ,the most exceptional civilizations will be invited to be housed within the Eternal City , where even the peasants die of old age !
And also the fallen will have their souls serve the god of games for eternity .
Also i want the city itself to be the de facto capital of all civilization.
Meaning that ownership of my city can be challenged by societies and all societies are welcome to challenge one another.
As the true owner I simply want the souls and true-names of everybody that will die peacefully while living in the city .
For mortals without protection and a harsh medieval fantasy life , exchanging your soul for running water and a toilet within the house with clean sewage i think it ll be a very good deal !

And from the Eternal City , even the mortals can watch on the epic game living in godly comforts .

Also at some point based on my dogma i want to give the major gods embassies in the city and turn my City in the eternal theater of mortal empire building and gods meeting there.

Doesn't seem like a big deal so far... what he really needs to do is Weave Plane for 4 ap, and then Bridge Plane (2AP), so that the rules of the plane bleed over into the boundaries of the city. And, I guess, Alter Land to build the city in the first place, if he's in a hurry and doesn't want to create a race of people and invent the concept of architecture...

Uh... does he mean like Battle Royale the movie?

That's a little problematic...

In some ways, I get it-- a multi-racial contest for an awesome artifact, is what I think he's saying. I'm not sure whose energy he means by "their" at the end of that passage...

Yeah, definitely sounds like he means the movie Battle Royale.

Noric would be somewhat annoyed by this, since he's the one who invented contests already as a peaceful thing to keep people from murdering one another and stuff...

AND SOULS? Abraoigi'll have a big problem with THAT...

Swifts wouldn't be interested, I don't think, except the very elderly. I can't speak for the other races...

Mmm, we already have the House of Melting Wax, and we don't use it that much anymore...


I dunno, I just... does this person understand that cities haven't even been invented yet? I don't even think we have agriculture as such... It's part of what's made things so hard for Erot... we don't even have markets yet...

I like the idea of a place that the characters can go and duke it out. The concept of a city with gods in it reminds me of the astral sea from dungeons and dragons, but the problem I see with it is that eventually the gods have to leave first world and can only act through an avatar. Eventually then it would just be mortals in the city.

I don't know where you stand on gods existing in their own plane painter, so if you rule that gods could exist within planes that are connected to the first world that negates that issue. Out of character I have no problem with the soul thing, I actually like the concept of a heaven on earth that you won in a game.

In character Abraoigi would have one of three options: Constantly war against the city with monsters, warriors, and curses to 'free' the souls within. Option two strike an accord with the new God of the city that allows Abraoigi access to feast on the souls unrestrained. Or option three cheat at the games every single time to win and have the winner denounce the city.

If the new player is okay with constantly being attacked or circumvented by Abraoigi for souls, and gods can exist in their own planes despite being more then demigods, then I don't see a problem with it.

There is no rule about not being able to exist in a different plane or one connected to the first world.  It is actually what I expect to have happen.

Here to request a thread for The Eternal City.

Also to continue your conversation from earlier on , a Colosseum where we can duke it out is on my priorities the other idea i have is have many societies and organizations undergo battles in tournaments.
Artifacts are appropriate rewards i think but still i am trying to find a more enticing rewards to produce tension ...
Any ideas?

Souls?But they are not quantifiable in game mechanics ...Great Painter do you have any plans on that for the future?
besides souls...what else...

I also just had the idea of presenting a whole Domain as a ultimate reward but i am still thinking of how it makes sense or benefit me ...

Perhaps by demanding some sort of divine action from the participants .
That way in total the divine Ap would be maximized and both the victor and the host will be happy ...
Actually that sounds good .
So if the Great Painter allows it , i ll soon announce the invitations for the first tournament (arc)!

Yeah I feel like that should be a Seperate thread.<sub><sub><sub> <sub> <sub><sub> <sub>also a tiny bit overwhelming to be honest. as really I never considered this in my wildest dreams. Though I guess I can think of something. The in game answer of course is that each participant gives up some ap for a prize worth more than the individual so each gives up. They would directly benefit because it helps build up so expenditure to the next domain and well they have a chance to gain a prize. This would  probably be an artifact or multiple of some sort.  </sub></sub></sub></sub></sub></sub></sub> I am a simple moderator. Nothing more every plan the pc's make and creation they make I have no plans for. I do admittedly have a God in the action. Which I can curse out anything I find truly objectionable. But even then curses are supposed to be more of a no but type of thing. That pcs can use to drive the story forward. And I am amazed at what that simple tool has done for this world.

In short in game the best reward I can say to give is the artifact. You could argue that you are doing fights and have the loser of each round lose one domain while the winners gain one..But that is just going to cause trouble. And you could memorialize a domain for slightly cheaper for hosting it.  That is the worst option in my opinion. But if you guy's go that route then we would have to wait for each God to have the 6 ap for each round.

Wooooo, internet back on. Apparently they cut the line while doing some work on it and either didn't realize they'd cut me off, or else they just were too lazy to care. While the latter seems VERY VERY likely considering the cut-off was about 8 pm, let's all pretend it was the former instead.

So... I'm about to update the Who's Who thread... ...So since Token and Zixriddit disappeared on the same day, I take it Zixriddit is officially dead too?

Let me know, Painter, so I can make it official or not.

just had too look for a tiny bit to paste this.

Refocus Artifact (3AP): Refocusing an Artifact allows a God to change the type of an artifact they own. This can change a Combat Artifact to a Utility Artifact or change the AP action that a Utility Artifact effects. This action cannot make a Utility Artifact into another already existing Utility Artifact that a God owns. A Refocused Artifact retains its Infusions and change where applicable. A God cannot Refocus an Artifact for one full roll over after they have used this action.

I would like a new thread in the First World: Mortals.

I would like to use it to explore what's going on in the world of mortals... I have this idea about some mortal characters I'd like to write. Abrioigi could also use the thread to write things that The One Who Whispers is up to... or maybe the adventures and/or experiences of the First Dragon... and anyone else could do the same... Barlin could write stuff from the perspective of the head of his Hunters organization, just for example. If he wanted. (Well I guess no mortal in the city is doing much right now, but you get the idea).

It's just that I'm sitting here with time on my hands waiting for the other gods to do stuff Noric can react to...

Anybody read Zelazny's story "The Great Slow Kings?"
