Put Simply the religion of the God Terra is spreading through the Kephler Empire, and with Achilles Kephler's conquests into other territories, soon the Religion of Terra will be dominant across the known world. But the other Gods aren't happy about this conquering of their kingdoms. Some come to Earth as human warriors, intent on saving their people and lands. Others arrive in God form, taking a much more noticable approach in the war.
Right now lists of the Kingdoms, Gods, and Locations are incomplete depending on how many people we have join
The World is similar to Earth where the Kephler Empire currently occupies an area similar to Rome. The Washu Kingdom Owns a region from Northern China down to all the Islands around Lower Asia. The Great Republic Controls the Continent West of Mainland. Their conflicts affect the rest of the world relatively little. This is a culturaly diverse place filled with people dispersed by previous wars. (This is a highly fictionalized Earth with only names being used for ease in navigating), Terra, the vast Southern continent is largely unexplored and most expeditions sent to form colonies never return. There are 3 moons surrounding the planet, which is a bases of many religious theories.
More info to come later on the major world religions.
First I'll post my layouts for God and Human characters. (These are for the Character Creation Thread coming later)
Name: What their followers call them, or what Earthly name they take on
Apearance: What they look like, either in God form or physical incarnation
Symbol: What Symbol represents them, it's how followers of one deity can identify other followers.
Element: This is generally a metal or mineral, this gives the God their power and weakens enemies.
Powers: Powers the God frequently uses either in battle or to help/observe his/her people.
Territory/ Kingdom: Where they live (In the heavens or Underworld), or which Earth Kingdom Serves them.
Task: What are their Godly tasks? (such as crops, fertility, judging the dead, ect)
Pantheon: Do they serve their people alone or do other Gods help them to care for the people in their charge?
Bio: A Story about why the God is where they are, why are they hearing of the war on Earth? What's getting them involved?
Race: Human (Can also be things like centaur, mermaid, fairy, and other sentient creatures)
Name: Birth Name or Nickname
Age: How many Years they've been alive.
Gender: Male, Female, or Other
Apearance: Picture or Detailed Description.
Territory/ Kingdom: What Region they call Home.
Bio: Who are they and why are they involved in the war?
Rules for Playing God: There is no allpowerful supreme God, so no 'godmodding'. All Gods are equal in power over their people (Though some may be much better suited for battle than ones with other powers.) On Earth They are weak to the elements of other Gods, for example A Patron of a God who's element is Silver can damage another God in God form with silver. But it must be a loyal follower of the God to use thier element against another God. God's are immortal in invincible in their Territory (Each one has a walled castle in Heaven) But are limited to the same rules on Earth visiting another God's Temple. God's incarnated in human form retain their knowledge but their power is reduced to the capacity of the human's body. When they are killed in human form they can rise up as a God form or move to a new reincarnation.
Here's the Basics, let me know if you have any questions in regard to this RP.
