Hello all! Samfool here. I had ran across this game about four years ago, and fell in love with it. In fact, the original group that I started playing with became so engrossed into the game, that it is still going on to this day! Nowadays it is more of a world-building exercise, but it's roots are in these rules.While these are the base rules, I have come up with many house rules to make the game a little more intricate. All the rules are in the thread Dawn of Worlds: Divinity- Library. All other threads for this game are in my signature The premise of Dawn of Worlds is simple. You are a god. Do what you please. But what is a king without a kingdom? That is where the fun begins. Each stage of Dawn of Worlds is called an Age. There are three ages by default. The First Age is considered to be the Creation Age. This is where all the ecosystems, climate differences, and landscapes are molded and shaped by the players. The Second Age is where things get interesting. This is considered the Race Age. This is when Race Creation is heavily introduced. Each god may have an infinite number of races, but must tend to them, lest they loose faith in their god. The Third Age is considered the Relations Age. This is where the races will battle, befriend, loathe, envy, and communicate with other races created by other gods to a heavier extent than the other ages. Technological and magical advances will be more prominent, and lesser creatures could be left in the dust. Sound like fun..? With this game, I will ask that you turn in an application from the following format. Please post the application in a spoiler inside of this thread. Oh, and for added measure, please use the term 'Diety' within. That's one way to make sure people are paying attention! Application (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Application (open) Application (close) Name: This is every name, title, and the like that is associated with your god. I will use these from time to time when talking about your god, as repeating your god's name over and over gets boring. Alignment: I like the base nine alignments, but they need to be spruced up. We will be using these! Spheres: Each god receives three areas of power. These spheres allow for bonuses and penalties when creating in the world. The idea behind this is to make sure certain gods are better at their themes than others. Example (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Example (open) Example (close) Fire God, Water God, Sky God, and Earth God are the characters in this game. Fire God is great at making Pyromancers, Fire Birds, and Volcano Cities. Sky God is equally adept at making Fire Birds, but not at Pyromancers, and is terrible at making Volcano Cities. Earth God is just as good as the Fire God at making Volcano Cities, on par with the Sky God at making Pyromancers, but is terrible at making Fire Birds. The Water God is terrible at making all of these things, but excels at making underwater cities, while the Fire God is terrible with said cities. +1 to Creation Points when making something pertaining to your sphere. +1 Loyalty to any race that uses an Advancement pertaining to your sphere. (Stacks) -1 to Creation Points when making something opposing your sphere. -1 Loyalty to any race using an Advancement opposing your sphere. (Stacks) Forms: I would like one base form, but then any 'alternate' forms you have are fine with me. Is your god a shapeshifting trickster? An animal based druid god? The sun? As long as your jot it down, I should be ok with it. Myths: What do the legends say about your god? Did he arrange the stars? Did she battle with a mighty beast, spilling its blood which created the oceans? The more creative the better. NOTE: You have not created a race yet, so please, no race creation stories until later. Personality: What is your god like? Are they angered easily? Do they care if people like them? Are they peaceful, wise, or good? Goals: What is your god's purpose? What makes him keep on chugging along? I would like at the minimum, three goals. These can be anything from protect X race, to vanquish evil, to create a utopia. As far as posting rates, I intend to move the story along every three days. If you do not post within three days of the Round Start, then not only do you not take an action, but your god collects no Creation Points. You have been warned!
