Playing God

Post Sun Nov 25, 2018 8:57 pm

So, after being asked by gamers personally, and by seeing a thread about it, I decided to create a document describing how to create a pantheon for gaming. It is only a few pages long, but I'm hopeful it will help people. Please read it and feel free to offer suggestions how to improve it.

An interesting take and supplement, and easy to implement as well as customize! 8-) I edited a few small things, here's r2.

I appreciate how practical and concise this guide is. I also like the idea of creating a elementalism-themed pantheon. It seems that almost all of the campaigns I've ever played in have had a pantheon loosely based on either Greek or Norse deities, and I've gotten quite tired of those models at this point. Something entirely different would be a welcome change.

Thank you! I actually need to add a few more things to the "add-on" section. And also a few other sample gods. Not a complete pantheon, mind you, just a few examples to get ideas flowing.
