Reyne suggested something that sounded both fair and sane. So, I am making it official. You are free to make three beginning characters whenever you feel like it however you feel like it, etc.
But if you wish to make a fourth character, you’ll have to wait ten days after making your third one. And if you want to make a fifth one you’ll have to wait ten days after the day you made your fourth one, and so on and so forth. I hope I’m making sense here. Basically, wait ten days before making a new character. This is all for plot reasons. There are a lot of cool gods and deities ready to be taken and it would be heart-breaking if some of them didn’t get any plots or attention.
Consider these ten days as a way for you to get to know your new character and get him out there. Also, you don’t need to make a new character every ten days. You all know that I’m sure. But let’s say you wait twenty days after creating your last baby. That doesn’t mean you get two characters. One at the time. Alright?
This new rule starts now. Meaning those with three characters who wish to make a fourth one must wait until the 23rd of December.
Lots of love,

Gods is what’s happening baby. Gods and mythological creatures on the loose, stuck in human forms, their powers diminished, being all sexy and angsty and awesome. They’re only working on half the awesomeness though. Stuck in human forms, forgotten by the humans. Kind of sad actually.
Check your damn calendar. It’s 2011. Well. Soon it’ll be 2012, but you know. Not yet.
America, Fuck Yeah! And let’s throw everyone into New York. Your characters can live anywhere in America. But we’re just gonna make New York the center of our happy little roleplay. Because Gods are attracted to bright lights like bugs to…Bright. Lights.
Any type. Seriously tho. ANY. TYPE. No Christianity though. Let’s just stick with older religions which aren’t really practiced anymore. Greek, Egyptian, Norse… We don’t want Jesus Christ driving around town turning everyone’s water into wine. Or do we? Also legendary heroes like Achilles or anyone related to the mythology is allowed. Mythological creatures need a human playby. Let’s say you’re interested in taking Cerberus or Sleipnir. You’re totally free to do so. Go wild. Be creative.
One thing you need to understand is that these gods are having this huge hangover. People don’t worship them anymore, they’re rarely mentioned, and they don’t live in their respective tra-la-la-lands no more. So they can have several powers related to their different…Areas. But try not going wild. They won’t be able to destroy buildings and kill people with a snap of their fingers. They can have several powers AS LONG AS THEY ARE JUSTIFIED. Odin isn’t going to be able to turn into a human torch. But having cool empathy with ze ravens IS possible. Small things. Try not blowing the scale. Try to think of things that can go unnoticed among all of the humans.
Well go get a human sacrifice then. No seriously. These Gods are basically whinny spoiled bitches who need love and attention and, above all, worshiping. Being offered human, animal and just sacrifices in general, people giving away their virginity to them, parties, events, songs dedicated to them. All of these things feed them and make them more powerful. So, if these happen, you can totally go wild with your Gods’ powers for a day or two. BUT, these offerings must be made willingly by humans, ‘kay? ‘Kay then.
YES, OH GODS, YES THEY CAN. Gods are stuck in human forms, alright? They age and they get sick like everyone else and if you impale them, they’ll probably end up dead like 99% of the human population. But these gods will reincarnate in another form. And come back. But you know, they’ll have to start over. As babies. So dying is a bit of a drag when you’re finally getting used to your human body. WHICH MEANS, you can’t kill your character and then immediately change your face claim to a sexy 20-year-old. They must. Start. Over. Like bald screaming newborns. Dying = Bad gaiz.
Yes. No matter how many times they change bodies, and what name they’re currently using (they do need a human name) gods always recognize each others and their mythological creatures. Even if they’re from different mythologies. They also know they are gods since a very young age. So if you want to use a child as a play-by, you can totally do so dudes and dudettes. They’ll have to know what is going on and act a but more adultish than a regular child though. Because basically, the bodies are just vessels. The gods are stuck inside. A god stuck in a child’s body will act like their regular selves. Which might be a bit strange in certain situations. But again, you’re all free to do whatever pleases you.
Ohohoho, woah there. Let’s get something straight here, our gods are proud but kind of depressed creatures right now. I’d like you to keep them away from big awesome careers. Some of them can be successful you know, lawyers, doctors, what have you, but we don’t want them to have a lot of people following them. Wedon’twantthemtogettoohappy. Not to mention most gods have a few unsolved businesses with other gods. So yes, keeping a low profile would be best.
Of course. Gods from different mythologies are free to mingle and bond and love and hate and just do whatever they please with each others.
You really don’t have to. Your character can have any playby you wish. You could even make Penelope Cruz a Northern god if you wanted to. If you think the face matches the personality and story you have in mind for your character then, by all means, go right ahead. Don’t feel limited by the area/country they are originally from. Gods do not get to choose their bodies.
Yes you can. If you need help with anything or have wide-board-plot ideas, don’t be afraid to PM me and we’ll talk things over babies. I’m here to help. Also, I apologize for all grammatical / vocabulary / spelling mistakes. Me no speak Americano.
Sure. We all need sacrifice—I mean. Worshipers. I mean. What. But yes, you can. Although I do not encourage any of you making illegitimate demi-god bastards. Yes, Zeus fools around a lot, but you can’t make a super powered human with god-like parents. Just no. Unless they are canon characters like Hercules or something. These ones can have big important jobs if you want to. Feel free to do whatever you want with ze humans.
Yes you can BUT. For now, I want everyone to stick with THREE characters. THREE. For now. In the future I might change this rule and allow a billion characters, but I want people to focus on three and manage them for the time being. Also, if you’re indeed making three gods, I strongly advise you to make those three from different cultures. Avoid taking two gods who have a lot of background together like Hades and Zeus. Roleplaying by yourself isn’t that fun.
Welcome to the United States of America. Land of opportunity, accomplished dreams and graveyard to old beliefs. Dragged away from their homelands by immigrants who saw in the United States the reflection of a happier better life, gods roam city streets like any other citizen. Men worshiped these mythological deities in the old days. They once offered them sacrifices, wrote songs about their wondrous deeds and loved them above all things. But through time the old gods have slowly faded away in the minds of men and been forgotten. Forgotten. But not gone.
