    What is a Divine Intervention Game?
    A DI is a game that has actual human beings roleplaying as deities, helping shape up the game world and the storyline. Only one human player is selected, and every 50 (or so) turns, the player posts their progress (as if telling a fantasy tale, with pictures and whatnot) and their save file. At this point the deities pick up the save and edit it to their heart's content (with certain limitations), giving the player quests, rewarding them or smiting them with their (un)holy might and enhancing the storyline. The player then takes the edited save file and resumes playing. This back and forth savefile juggling and storytelling action continues until the player meets their demise or achieves a victory.

    ---

    We're considering starting a second DI game (the first one kind of... died), and we'd like opinions on which civ would be more fun to watch, play and manipulate next. Vote for it, but bear in mind that we're leaning more towards civs with no ties to any specific deity/angel.

    While we're at it, we could also (re)clarify who's going to be which angel in this thread. (Re)Post your angel and I'll update accordingly.

    The Gods

    Lugus-Angel of Light-thomas.berubeg
    Sirona-Angel of Wisdom-
    Nantosuelta-Angel of Faith-TheForestAuro
    Sucellus-Angel of Life-Verdian
    Amathaon-Angel of Fertility-Ribusprissin
    Junil-Angel of Justice-Dumanios

    Arawn- Angel of Death-MagisterCultuum
    Oghma- Angel of Knowledge-abculatter2
    Danalin- Angel of Water-Brugarin
    Dagda- Angel of Balance-Rystic
    Kilmorph- Angel of Earth-Standiball
    Tali- Angel of Air-Tasunke
    Cernunnos- Angel of Growth-civ_king

    Camulos- Angel of War-Lade
    Aeron- Angel of Rage-civplayah
    Cerdiwen- Angel of Magic-MasterofDisasta
    Mammon- Angel of Greed-Seon
    Esus- Angel of Deception-Diamondeye
    Agares- Angel of Despair-kenken244
    Bhall- Angel of Fire-Algeroth

    Only Sirona left up for grabs!

    Is there a reason for this being a poll?

    We were arguing, and a few different opinions popped up, so a poll it is. This doesn't mean we have to follow through with whatever the result of the poll is, it should ultimately be up to the player (PaulusIII) to decide on the civ.

    I might as well play as Arawn. Playing in character as him means not actually doing anything.
