Sounds good and is better than the GM doing everything. :)

Ok, than i will GM the first one as the ubergod. Thats how i work => :sleep: :rootbeer: :lol:
I think 5 gods is a good start to keep it balanced.

One turn goes like this:
1 - I update the map. The link is above and won't change. I can't include a svg using IMG, but clicking on the url is no hard job. ;)
2 - I dice your points with 2d6 and add them too your points left from the previous turn. The order of your turns also depends on your dice result each turn.
3 - You post your actions with a picture in the order i posted in 2. Please also name the target hex field number. If you want to change the island shaped like a duck, it would be H18. If you want to change the single one in the middle right at the bottom, it is N5.
4 - I adept your actions to the map and take away the points for the actions.
5 - Next turn. Go to point 1.

Please give your god a name. doesn't matter if it is a function name like Goddess of the sea or Maglubiyet, as long as i can write it. No Lovecraft names like Shriz'fdo'mda'lii'tfo the Devourer. ;D

Here is already the empty basemap. I will draw coastal lines now. :)

Oh really? last I checked fire wasn't so orderly. It completely fails to wait its turn for anything.

ThroughTheWell (TTW): god of TBD... I tend to think that will be revealed organicaly in game. If you insist, god of Mysteries (aka Secrets).

Edit: TBD often means To Be Determined. It is often a placeholder for later replacement.

Edit: What kind of file is a .svg? And how can I look at it? Nevermind. I figured it out.

Hmm icic good reasoning. I picked fire for different reasons though. Representing Passion, Purity, Protection, etc


SPOILERS:And I like the name, comes from an eberron book I think. Don't really know anything about it besides that.

Well so long as you don't go chaotic Jhaz won't see reason to try smiting you.

Will this have a defined end? I haven't read anything about that. If that's up to us, I vote for no definite end.

The first one holding the duck shaped island for 5 turns wins. No, just kidding. ;)
No, it will ends if the powers get too unbalanced or it's time for something new since the game repeats itself.

i added another link in the top post, pointing to an PNG file. Maybe you can see that on your Iphone or without firefox?

I answered some questions above.

It sounds like the 'game' is more about world creation than 'winning'. I'd imagine we'll vote to end it some 10 turns or more into Age 3 when we think the world if mostly done.

Sounds like you are ready to roll dice.

Are we playing plain vanilla, or with any kind of reduced costs in Age 1?

START

START

We play without any modifications if that is ment by "vanilla". :)

The order for your actions and the starting points:

god 5: God of Mysteries (ThroughTheWell) = 12 points
god 4: God of Food (Askstoomuch) = 11 points
god 2: God of the Silver Flame (Taberah) = 9 points
god 3: Jhaz, Lord of Order(Dlover) = 9 points
god 1: Goddess of the Sea (thinkslogically) = 9 points
