God Game ala Rpol style [Interest Check]
« on: May 20, 2016, 02:46:36 PM »
I am considering running a small 3-4 player version of this that might turn into another strategic game or chain based on the setting.

Interest?

I was in one of those that ran for a bit. Got bogged down by too many players and a GM without enough time.

I'm interested though :)

It's a delicate dance.  You need enough opposition to keep things really interesting and dynamic but everyone has to WANT to make it work and actually make a world that people want to spend time in.  I will tweak the rules based on what I've seen that works and doesn't.  I will also probably restrict it to three acts and then take the setting and use it for another game or format.

Two is enough for me to likely do it.  I'll leave this open a bit longer though.

 Interested, we had a fun time with the one I was in (limited ourselves to 4-5 players) and it ran for a while. I ended up making crystalline lizard-creatures that were essentially psionic zen-monks who used giant mecha....

What does everyone want their god to be? Right now I'm thinking of making the goddess of exploration/geography/travel.

 More than likely Knowledge and Secrets, a goddess with two masks and two faces

Probably something terrible and lewd :3

I mean, if I wanted to play a regular god game I would do it on Rpol XD

Terrible and lewd is perfectly acceptable.  Alright, I think three is a good group.  I'll wait another 12 hours or so, freeze it and start a group tomorrow likely

I think I might do something like a god/goddess of 'the wild'. 'The Wild' in this sense not only being 'the wilds of nature' but also, 'people and things that are wild or without restraint'.

And in that vein, is there any kinks/subjects beyond the normal (scat, gore ect) that people really don't want to see in the game? I wanna know the boundaries before I get toooo deep into what I wanna play :3

I would count that as part of 'gore ect' ;)

I didn't think it would count but I thought it would still be good to mention.

Edit: would their be a planet and laws of physics to start with or would we be creating everything from scratch? I would personally prefer to start from scratch.

Game locked.  3 is plenty to start.  There will be three ages, and then I will likely do a setting based on that.

I am inclined to start with some laws of physics but interesting things happen when you don't.  Instead I think I will make rules inclined to make the world inhabitable and usable, rather than decree how that has to be.

Link posted soon.

Clarified in thread, but short version - You can make IC communications post but not yet act.
