    First off, a few rules you may have heard before to get us started off.
    I am the Moderator. I, and not you, decide what is over the top.
    You will not insult any other god.
    Updates happen in a space ranging from mondays to wednesdays.
    Honor the CFC rules and the IOT guidelines as well.
    You cannot directly destroy. You can only create. (you can easily loophole this one)
    You cannot have the same alignment as another god.

    Actions
    At the start of the game, you begin with two actions. Actions are, for lack of a better term, the creation of various things, inspiring civilizations to do things, declaring Dies Irae, or bringing life over into this plane. As you become more powerful, you may get more actions. Actions cannot be banked.

    Civilization
    Of course, we start off the game with no civilization in place - heck, nothing exists! Each deity originates from a different plane, and can create life on said plane - costing one action. They can then “import” the life, once suitable conditions have been created.

    RACES have a Devotion meter. This goes in a couple of stages. 0%, 20%, 40%, 60%, 80%, and 100%. This represents the proportion of a race that worships a specific god, and who they will fight for in case of Dies Irae.

    CIVILIZATIONS have an official religion that can be a pantheon or monotheistic, but revolves around an aspect.

    Aspects
    As civilizations worship you, they stop focussing on you, and instead look towards a part of you - this is an ASPECT. Each aspect getsa set amount of extra actions to this specific civilization, although it doesn’t need to be “cashed in”.

    Each aspect has an infamy meter, going from -10 (reviled) to 10 (worshipped). This really just means whether they consider you a good or an evil god. It really depends on what your aspect does.

    Dies Irae
    Dies Irae is a war between two gods. Now, Compacts forbid you from actually going at it in the God Realm, but your followers will always be there to fight for you!

    A Dies Irae differs from a standard war in this IOT in that you are involved in it. Calling a Dies Irae is one action; ending it is another.

    Winning a Dies Irae doesn’t make you more powerful, but you can eliminate another god from major following.

    Tiers of Godhood
    There are 5 tiers of godhood:
    1: High God - 4 Actions, 2 actions per aspect.
    2: Powerful God - 3 Actions. 1 action per aspect.
    3: God - Everyone starts at tier 3. 2 Actions, 1 action per aspect.
    4: Minor God - 1 Action. 1 action per aspect.
    5: Local God - 1 Action that can only count for a civilization. Don’t fall here!
    Tier increases and decreases happen practically at random, but there is some connection.

    The Elder Gods
    The Elder Gods function as the IOT’s random events. They won’t show themselves until life exists on this plane. Occasionally, they do good things in your name, else they do bad things. While civilizations may worship the Elder Gods, they don’t really do much.

    A few more notes:
    • Always put creations of land in public
    • Always use the same colors for land - blue for sea, green for fertile land, light blue for ice, grey for mountains, brown for deserts
    • Use a template for the purposes of life creation
    Name of creature
    Appearance - what does it look like?
    Traits - what does it do?
    Sapient? - could it form a civilization?

    Dies Irae orders must be given in secret, but have to be declared in public.

    Bähl
    God of War, Fury, Destruction. Lord of The Black Sun, The Beast Within. Bloodthirster.

    Master of The Eternal Pyre
    The Eternal Pyre is the realm of Bahl, a pitch-black and seemingly endless fiery ocean which swirls in wild motion around a set of large temperate isles of different biospheres protected thereafter by their own private habitable atmospheres, rotating in orbit around a black, miniature artificial star. the entire concept of the realm defies comprehensible logic and physics when leaving the protection of the isles for the burning void seas. meanwhile, gathering in the nothingness around these isles are the ever-growing remnants of enraged souls, fallen warriors, vengeful spirits and/or similar sentient beings whom fell prey to their primal instincts. whenever a mortal being expresses rage, wage war for whatever reasons, or turns to violence or destruction, their hateful energies and the blood they spill fuels the pyre and its benevolent overlord. however, existence for the souls of the fallen in the pyre is not always horrid. especially brutish or heroic champions of martial combat are allowed to live out an eternity of glorious battle up until they are killed, where they are brought to Bahl's great Obsidian Citadel to feast and rejuvenate their strength before they wake up on the battlefield the next day to repeat the process all over.

    His symbol is an eerily radiant black sun.​

    I've recieved numerous questions about this in chat so:
    The Plane is ONE PLANET. Your planes are each their own planets.
    The Sun and Moon are Elder Gods.
    You are literally the stars.

    Name of God: Baase
    Name of Home Plane: Niurin
    God’s Alignment: Death, Fate and Necromancy.
    Symbol of the god:


    Baase is also symbolized by carrion birds, skulls and scythes.

    Relations: sibling to Heshan

    All, even the gods, must die: such is their fate which Baase ensures as a prime duty.

    Contrary to believe Baase does not "kill" people but rather represents the transaction between live and death, for the snapping of the thread is a process of fate true but it is done at the moment when the universe dictates; even then you are more than likely to be served by a reaper then Baase, though technically all die in the end so Baase is all. Basically Baase's and the reapers' job is more akin to escorting the deceased into their next existence. They will however not be pleased to know who try to 'escape fate,' as seen with any attempts to immortality (even liches) and Baase has personally vowed to ensure that even the gods will meet their due when their time comes.

    Despite Baase regarding undeath as a heretical denial of date the death god is linked with necromancy, possibly as a jeer by several necromancer groups to "break destiny," resulting in necromancer orders appearing Deist, Maltheist or even Misotheist to even the death god. That not to say there are theistic necromancer groups in worship of Baase but these tend to regard any practices of undeath as a contract, be it a soul continuing to serve on the plain or the usage of a corpse for a end, which will end with Baase coming to collect the being as fate dictates.

    Name of God: Drivalka
    Name of Home Plane: Rivalkatta (Lands of Everflowing)
    God's Alignment: God of time, equilibrium, and rivers.
    Symbol of the God:


    Appearance: Drivalka has three bodies but a single mind: representing the past, the present and the future. Interacting with him it's a task that only a few can bear: As the present talks to you, the past repeat something the present did long ago, and the future reveals what he will do. However, looking directly to the future can be dangerous to a mortal's sanity, as he shows the multiple possible futures at once. Also, his body is covered with golden plates and armors that are never the same, changing at every moment.

    the image has no background, sorry people that use cfc black.

    The Eveshka's crow is the symbol associated with life mysteries,
    intelligence and magic. Sign of luck, it is also associated with the
    archetype of the trickster and deceit. ​
