The new form stood roughly fifteen feet tall and was much like a human male.

I don't understand what is human male.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Neo since you had five points left over your running bonus should be 0, not +2. Your power point total this turn will reflect that.
Manual says five or under, and I don't see a house rule.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

I was under the impression that creating avatars required the existence of a race.

Otherwise you could make a race with 10 + 2 points by commanding your non-living-origin avatar instead of 22 in the first age.

I actually could not find precedent for a raceless avatar skimming our old games when I was preparing my turn 2.

I'd be fine with it, though, if we add the house rule that avatars cannot create a new race without paying the actual cost, since I don't want to mess up Pat's turn.

Good point. I never even thought about that, Brandon.

Since I did spend a point to create a physical form initially, would that help as a workaround, since the body actually had power spent to bring it into being? I hadn't actually planned on making more of those four-arm things anyway. It was just gonna be an avatar.

Oh yeah, oops. Let me just edit your points back up again.  :-[

I was sort of under that impression too, but then avatars being used to create races has always struck me as sort of iffy anyway. I suggest we allow raceless avatars, a houserule which allows avatars to create subraces, and try to make sure that a subrace is never too drastically divergent from the parent race so people don't just game the system by saying their race of eight armed horse-men are like 'a subrace' of dwarves because their avatar did biological experiments on dwarves.

That sounds reasonable. If you want, I could spend my last remaining point on the God Eater's second form change to keep things consistent.

And a raceless avatar doesn't seem too far-fetched anyway. Gods always have weird and unique henchmen hanging around. AVATAR WARS.

If its not an action on the table you don't have to spend points on it. Its just a narrative thing. If you had to spend points on every narrative action your god took nothing would ever get done.

I'm gonna be on the road for a few days, so you can skip my turn for future rounds if you need to.  I might get to the site while I'm gone, but if not I'll be back monday night.
Probably not a Goat, either.

That's cool!

I like it when people take breaks because then you end up with players playing with a glut of tokens. When you two get back lots of neat things will happen!! :D
