Balancing the Mortal and Divine
Imagine… you’re sitting in your office chair. It’s late at night, cause you’re stuck on the night shift, and data entry just isn’t keeping you awake. Then the ground rumbles, the ceiling shakes, and your pencil falls into your coffee. Dammit! Looking out of the window, you see a creature made of eyes and tentacles.
Of course, you’re the only one who sees it, thanks to a few vigilant who protect the precious mortals from divine displays. There isn’t anyone else to defend the city. It’s your territory; You’re the one who’s been gifted with the spark of divinity. Being the god of lightning, you forge blades of pure energy and lunge at the monster… it will not take your soul, and it will not make you late on your deadlines!
Gathering Your Pantheon
The gods of your city have two choices: The first option is to battle each other, with the winner winning the ability to devour the other god’s soul and assume their divine Dominion. Some gods do nothing to travel the land and consume the essence of their fellow gods for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and sometimes a light, but sensible snack.
The other option is what most new gods prefer; join together into a godly Pantheon, each protecting each other’s souls, improving your odds of battling encroaching Outsiders (mythic monsters) and influencing their territory with their Dominion. Just like the gods of old, being in a pantheon doesn’t mean the gods get along. On the contrary, while you can enjoy a bite out to each with some gods, you’ll downright detest others. But death is the only way out of a pantheon… so choose your enemies and your allies wisely.
