  • Goddess of Death, Winter, and Memory

  • God of Justice, Autumn, and Sorrow
  • God of Wisdom, Magic, and Night
  • Goddess of Nature, Music, and Passion

First step is claiming a deity. We've got four interested at the moment, myself, Narmio, Sematary, and Ektoras. I'll moderate and such, so the three others should chose three deities that they will play.

Each deity starts with 8 points to spend. Go ahead and reply with your deity choices and actions.

OK, I'll pick Wisdom, Magic and Night as my first choice. Maybe it might make sense to do three rounds of everybody-picks-one for fairness?

On the other hand if everyone is fine with first-come-first-served, then I'll take Sky, Weather and Day and Nature, Music and Passion as my other two.

Hey everyone, I'm joining a bit late.   

If no one minds, I'll take the Goddess of Death, Winter, and Memory and the Goddess of War, Stars, and Darkness.

Updated the list. Sematary gets the last 2 by default.

So in the next day or so, post how you are spending your 8 pts. The map has the hexes numbered, so please refer to those.

[ooc]Do the deities have names already, or should we supply our own?[/ooc]

EDIT: removed backstory; didn't fit with deities.

So, with 8 points,

The goddess of death, winter, and memory changes 28 spaces to colder temperature.    [37.  02-51.  02] and [38.  03-50.  03] on the map. 
The goddess of war, stars, and darkness raises a mountain range (x2) for 14 hexes and saves the other 2 points.    [30.  22, 29.  21, 28.  22, 27.  21, 26.  21, 25.  20, 24.  20, 23.  20, 22.  20, 21.  19, 20.  19, 19.  18, 18.  18, 17.  17]

The God of Life, Summer, and Peace changes 67.33, 68.32-37, 69.32-37, 70.33-35, 71.32-36 into forest and saves the last point.

The God of Water, Spring, and Love changes 77.48-49, 78.48-49, 79.47-48, 80.47-48, 81.46-47, 82.46-47, 83.44-45 into mountains, and saves the other 4 points.

That's 22 hexes. Which would cost 9 points to change 21. You can change 14 hexes, and have 2 pts left over at this point. I'll remove the last 8 hexes unless you tell me otherwise.

The God of Water, Spring, and Love changes 77.48-49, 78.48-49, 79.47-48, 80.47-48, 81.46-47, 82.46-47, 83.44-45 into mountains, and saves the other 4 points.
This costs 6 points, leaving 2. :)

As soon as Narmio and Ektoras give me plans (or tomorrow night, whichever occurs first), I'll update the map.

M'Xum, seeking the knowledge that comes from lone meditation in the empty night, turns 28 hexes into desert: 39.49-51, 40.49-51, 41.50-52, 42.50-52, 43.49-52, 44.49-52, 45.48-51 and 46.48-51.  He sees a vision: From here a great city will gaze out over endless desert, its inhabitants masters of both sand and sea.

Alar creates life with every bounding step, as effortlessly as you or I would breathe. Fully-formed forests spring from 14 hexes of plains as she dances (and pockets the last two points): 58.54-55, 59.50-55 and 60.51-56. These forests will now and forever pay homage to the joy of life itself, singing her song long after the dance ends.
