The God RP OOC
« on: February 02, 2011, 08:50:33 pm »
The God RP - OOC
The RP - Information Station

Welcome to The God RP! The RP in which you get to play as a... human servant to an all-powerful being! Yes, you've been lied to, sort of. This RP doesn't have you playing as a god, outright. Instead, you'll be playing as a god's representative on Earth. You act on your god's behalf and attempt to gain followers and power for your god, all while covertly sabotaging the efforts of other gods and their proxies. In exchange for this service, your god has given you a portion of their power which extends your life, your health, and your capabilities. But remember, you've only been sort of lied to!

In addition to play as your god's proxy, you also get to play the part of your god if you so desire. Now, your god's interactions are mostly-limited to the "association chamber", which is where all of the gods meet to discuss their dealings or accuse other gods of conflict. For the gods, it's all a grand game with power as the prize. And that means that somethings things can get contentious. Of course, the gods rarely fight each other one-on-one; that's what the proxies are for, after all!


This is the game I am hoping to start. The gods are playing the ultimate game of chess and their pawns are fighting for their lives. Our general time frame would be... the present. Modern times in an idealized world where events would probably happen in one giant city/suburbs/outskirts biome. The gods will be based on modern trends, beliefs, and popular culture. We can have villains if we'd like; however, I think because of the design, arc "villains" can really just be other proxies or gods that are trying to make a power-play on Earth. Since the gods are sort of in on the joke, consequences afterward would be minimal... though the proxies may hold a grudge.

Anyone that is interested in signing up, please post here. I'll have a character sheet and a list of potential gods up by tomorrow or Friday at the latest. Questions or comments? Please ask.

The internet is a magical place, where linguistic and dialectic possibilities are endless. Why not embrace those variations and see where they lead you.

Oh delightful!  I was wondering when we'd get around to starting up the pantheon again.

This looks promising. Whatever happened to Clap if You Believe? Ah well, real life gods wouldn't work. The new ones are too abstract and the old ones are too perverted.

What sort of gods can we serve? Big stuff like the God of Earthquakes, or small things like the God of Thinly-Sliced Cheese?

As we were discussing it (this is one of those old ideas that is finally getting dusted off), the gods would represent modern traditions that people worship. We thought that the old gods such as fire and wind gods would have lost their wonder after people became educated and unimpressed. And as such, those gods are now dead and what the represented is something no man marvels over. You want fire? Here's a lighter. Oooohhh!

The new gods would have to represent popular trends and beliefs. So... maybe stuff like the corporation or cinema.


**EDIT**
I will add, for certain "old" gods that may still be around (like gods of war and death), I think they should be unplayable and maybe off in their own separate place. We should be focusing on these new gods.

Glad to hear it. And glad you don't have a massive hemorrhoid. I, on the other hand, actually do have a hemorrhoid. :(

In other words, I'm in.

Anywho, I'm in.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Try Science Fiction.  ;)

Failing that, History [as viewed from the timeframe of the present].
