PostPosted: Tue Mar 20, 2012 7:27 pm    Post subject: New game idea - Prophets Reply with quote

I was thinking of a game that would work much like Aesir but instead of being gods, players would be prophets and have to build the reputation of their god and the god's followers and temples.

Would anyone be interested in playing this?

One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Yes, real world stuff like city building, using natural resources, developing technology, etc., but I was figuring that your deity would endow you with "gifts" just like as gods, we do with our prophets and high priests. So, instead of making powerful things, you would receive them and then use them to help your god's followers. So, you would pray, sacrifice, ask for things you think you could use or that you need and your god may or may not give it. Does that make sense?

I was thinking that I could develop a pantheon of gods and you would have to get the attention of the god you liked so that he/she would make you his/her prophet. You would have to develop his/her followers so that god would gain in power and that power would trickle down to you, the god's prophet and voice on earth.

Sounds good, but you might have the Mr. Pink problem when it comes to choosing gods. It would take a lot of work on your part building up a robust, varied Pantheon. But then, I've always enjoyed creating structure more than content, so that could just be me.

Interesting that you say that because I was just thinking that as players, you would help the god of your choice develop and evolve.

So we would get to play the mortal POV, instead of the deity's?
I'm in!

That was how I played the Illuminati. It was only ever about the mortal organization, not the being behind the scenes. The being was just raising the power levels of one mortal per turn. Then those empowered mortals were forming a trans-continental secret society that eventually was expected to elevate the entire world to godhood.

It would have been a glorious mass ascension of the entire planet. I'd predicted it would happen somewhere around turn 4300 or so. I think when I mentioned that to Fist, it was what convinced him it was time to quit.

I'm glad enough of you are interested to play.

I will get to work.

I would suggest changing your phone number. Else, you'll get blasted with texts from Fist.

I'm being funny, but I'm not kidding. He'll do it.

Yes, he already does. In fact, we have been known to speak in the very early hours of the morning regarding these games. It's the quietest time of the day for the both of us, right before work.

Then, we text throughout the day.

I'm just as bad as he is. LOL>

It's only a little early for me. Usually about 8am. Which is 5 for you, and you're already up and ready to go about these games! Laughing

Well, Fist and I texted before I started Inferno. I'd harass him about Aesir or Vanir. We'd plot conspiracies for Acro and Pantheon.

But once I was the GM... shit got real. He took it up a notch. And he stops treating you like an ally, and starts treating you like the asshole who's holding up his next fix.

And, like... he'll do this thing where he'll txt me something about Acro now... and if I reply to that, he'll turn around and blast me for taking the time to think about Acro, when there's still Inferno to be processed. Even when there's no processing for me to do, because the deadline is still two weeks away.

I almost wish this were a drug I were dealing... then at least I could demand sexual favors from him in exchange for his fix. He'd do it, too. But that doesn't do me a lot of good over here.
