Stole this idea from the /tg/ board on 4chan. This thread specifically.

All the posters are the gods of this world and you post what you're trying to create and then post the results of a d100 roll (just click roll, no modifiers). This determines how well you did in creating it. You can be as wildly creative or simply mundane as you like. The thread inspiring this contained a non-euclidean forest, a world tree with klien bottle leafs that are portals to other worlds, and an acid moon. Events will happen as the world develops, changing things up, and when civilization develop you might need worshipers to gain more power. All you need to play is a name for your god. One post per round, a round ends when I post. You do not need to post every round, and anyone can join at any time however joining in the beginning is ideal. I'll probably create a map or something later.

This barren planet is called Ayotil. It is your playground now.

And Jeff looked down unto this and it was good.

Four simple robot hermits were created, thrown to the corners of the world. However they are prone to wear, rust, and require maintenance. I doubt they will last long.

You scorch the planet and create a small desert. Blistering it is! With out plant life or water the birds begin to quickly die off.

You all step back as Jeff begins to show a great power. Metal trees, cold and jagged, rise from a section of the land and form a forest dotted with small lakes and rivers. The atmosphere makes Ayotil much more habitable.

The moons of this planet are the remains of the three heads of the dark lord who once tried to consume the planet. What stopped it is unknown; however, the headmoons have since been combined with technology, the decayed flesh showing surprising potential as machine parts, leading to them doing amazing and often unexpected things when put to use; however, they tend to require tons of energy in the process.

You quickly realize that this planet is just a rock with no history. You're making its history. Fresh out of dark lord heads, you try to make a machine moon. However a machine this large seems to be too big of a task, and all that ends up being made is a giant gear orbiting the planet. You gravely hope you got the trajectory of its orbit right. It will be called Cogus.

A new god joins the fray placing down a small ocean and uses his great powers to fill it with life. However, instead of the pop culture reference they hopped to recreate, all that came from them were microbial lifeforms. Without a proper moon, it rages out of control.

You try to create a great sun of black flame but the task proves too challenging. Instead, you create a small moonstar orbiting the planet. It is called Leth.

Event: Between the water, atmosphere, and moonstar small life begins to form in the metal forest. Tiny lizards and reptiles that eat the strange fruit produced by the trees.

Making do with what little they have, some plants try to grow in the midst of the deserts. They glow a deep, dark blue, the plants themselves being black, not unlike the moonstar that gives them what little sustenance they get. However, they are very, very sticky, and whenever something does get stuck to them, they leak an acid towards the stuck thing to dissolve and eventually absorb them for nutrients.

AND I ROLL, a 63.

Hungry and dehydrated, the birds lie in the sand weak from a lack of nutrients. Horus looked upon this and with his power gave them a sea to quench their thirst. And quench them it did. Wave upon wave crashes down on the birds, too frail to fly safely into the air. The birds of the desert are now extinct.

Alice creates a handful of mice-like creatures into the metal forest. They are pitch black with beady red eyes and a metallic tail that sounds like chain when it moves. They use this to cover the sound of their movement with the sound of the chains that hang down from the metal trees like a willow.

Sticky, black plants that glow blue sprout up in the desert and the sandy edge of the new sea. The plants near the sea grow more plentiful from the subsistence the water gives them. If there was any conceivable way for the birds to climb from their watery tomb, the plants would surely get them. The ones in the desert barely survive from the moonstar alone with no other life in the desert but them and are thus more dry and wilted looking.

And so Alice looked down upon her creation and giggled in delight, for the rats were to be rich, and their bounties plenty. For they would be the vehicle of Her divinity and blessed as her children, and so all was good.

But soon She came to the conclusion that She needed a vessel. The one to lead Her chosen people to their beginning and through the ages. To Her end she would choose the first of her people and bestow upon him Her gifts. For he would be the first to receive the gift of Intelligence and thus the one to receive Her gift of immortality, to become an instrument of Her will through the ages and spread Her word. And thus was bestowed upon him the bounty of a strong body and a sharp mind. And it was beautiful.

"Well, !#%$ me..." Horus said with an exasperated sigh.

"Hm...well, I got moldable sand and a lot of water at least. Gotta make due with what I have, being the conservative god that I am."

Horus then attempted a highly unlikely maneuver to utilize the waves of this torrential downpoar to create an oasis in the middle of a large valley. The water would then pool out of the valley to start slowly forming canyons around the desert.

Learning their lessons from those dumbass drowned birds, some new ones formed. While they retain what look like wings, they are flightless, and use small claws on the "wings," combined with their unsatisfiable appetite for sand, to burrow through the ground of the desert. Spending so much time underground, however, has caused them to go blind and even have lackluster healing, relying on feeling, and to a lesser extent, smell and taste. They sometimes fall victim to the plants, giving them enough sustenance to not necessarily thrive, but live, at least, but generally manage to avoid them well enough to survive themselves.

After !#%$ up with creating an ocean, he moved on to create a wonderful garden around the center region of Ayotil, with blooming flowers all around, some trees here and there, and many land animals inhabiting the area. Kinda like the Garden of Eden, except there's no naked people running around and it's perfectly fine to eat apples.

Alice imbues a creature with divine energy. It grows about three feet tall and gains the ability to stand on its hind legs. It is given intelligence and ponders the world around it, however it will soon find that its alone. If there were bigger hunting creatures it might be considered prey. The mice do not communicate, and in their hunting will sometimes hunt each other. It finds it self alienated from its 'people' and unable to communicate. Perhaps it can lend a hand in the evolution of the mice?

Instead of canyons he created a great sand pit. No one is quite sure how far it goes down, and the glowing plants begin to grow down the side of the sand pit and around it.

On the beach these new creatures, called the Burr, find themselves eaten by plants more often because they are more plentiful in that area. In the desert they find they have a much better chance of surviving due to the considerably less amount of plants and the plants are easier to escape from because of their dry, wilted quality. However the sorrowful aura of the desert effects some of the Burr greatly and will lie on the desert surface refusing to move or eat until they die.

Jeff tries to rapidly advance his lizards to a state of civilization. However he finds his godly powers don't work on living creatures as well as he would like them to. He does not notice the effects of his power right away, but when lizards birth more lizards, he finds a new species. These are called the Leyar. While they do not stand on two feet, because of being hunted by the mice they have evolved thicker scales and sharp teeth for hunting themselves. On average the Leyar are the same size as the mice. The Leyar climb the metaltrees and chains and drop on the mice from above. However the mice use their ability to sound like chain to disguise their footsteps and their dark coloring to hide in the shadows and hunt the lizards. Currently, there is no top of the food chain. Because of the success of the forest, it expands.

As equidistant from the two stars as possible/right in the middle, is an arctic area. As one might imagine, it has a lot of ice. Who'da thunk it.
However, due to a metal mixing in with the water/ice, it's abnormally reflective, having resulted in caves, being essentially holes melted into the ice as a result of the heat of the light reflected around. When Soleth resides overhead, these caves are literally blinding and can cook you alive if you stay in for too long. Leth, however, turns it darker than the blackest night, which, I'm told provides "darkheat." So it's like getting cooked alive, "but darker." So, sure, that happens.

holy !#%$ I rolled a 97 on this nonsense

"'Twould seem the noble kinsmen are arrived
and the time for genesis is at hand.
Though I am but the Playwright of a man
of no small repute and no small largesse,
it is my pleasure to play the fine quill
in the hands of my great and mighty lord.

I do pray you forgive my grievous fault
and assume not that prideful is Legault."


So saying, Legault, most estimable playwright and servant to a great and powerful lord took forth his quill, plucked from the tail of a bird which sat atop a mountain at the farthest reaches of the land where souls older than the oldest of the dead resided and stood at the ready. With a nod to a voice that only he could hear, he writ the will of the divine upon reality. With strokes of ink crafted from the tears of those in the most supernal reaches of reality who had wept, did weep, and would weep still at the tragedy of the universe, he penned the beginnings of a tale of the shadowy owl people who lived away from the eyes of all other creatures of this planet.

It was too early to say what shape their race would take, but these birds would be creatures of the night, shunned by the daylight as they would perhaps be destined to be shunned by other races that populated this planet. Would their fate be sad or pleasant? It was beyond Legault to predict what the strokes of his pen might wreak.

And so Alice did look upon the creation of Her divine will and the instrument of Her divine inspiration and it was radical. And yet inside Her heart was the found feeling of sorrow and the demons of doubt, for she looked upon Her chosen and was assaulted by the despair of loneliness and the questions of self.

And so she did take it upon herself to help Her people, and to provide for Her people, and to be bountiful to Her people, and therefor did Her divine will become imprinted once more upon the mice. For She would give them claws of Her design, sharp enough to penetrate into the metal forest surrounding them, so that they might climb the trees, and so that they might create from the trees tools, and so from that would Her people begin. And so She would instruct Her chosen to lead, and to show them how to build the first tools, and to show the use of these tools, in the name of Her will.
