!#%$'s polite smile quickly grew into an enormous grin. To anyone who knew him, it'd likely come off as sinister; to his golden pal over here, though, he probably just seemed like a very cheery fellow. "Thanks for the information, you really do seem like a really swell guy." he commented, giving Enyo a gentle pat on the back.

With that done, he moved on to his next target: the wavy Grand Morian. Giving a light bow, !#%$ greeted her, this time being less friendly and more formal, "It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance, madame. If I could be so kind, I'd like to present you with an offering." With that, !#%$ went to work: he created a large--enormous, even--sea-dwelling creature in such a way that it had a very imposing silhouette from above the water: it was nearly perfectly round and as big as the biggest whale, but didn't have much vertical depth, not unlike a flounder, being almost flat, relatively speaking. It sustained itself on only one thing: air, which it ate by rising to the surface and opening its mouth, which took up pretty much the entirety of its body when opened. Similarly, its excrement also came from this mouth, albeit being blown out like a hose, for indeed, its excrement was water itself, which it would often blow on to land, flooding the area.

Rolled a 70.

Once his conversation with the sea witch was over, making sure not to seem rude with his quick departure, !#%$ took another free action all the way over to this "Silly" Serapyr. Now sounding as shocked as he could muster, !#%$ appealed to this firey red god, "Oh, goodness, it seems the so-called Grand Morian over there's unleashed a monster to attack the lands directly!" he shouted, pointing over to the creature !#%$ himself had just created, "Clearly one who seems as heroic as you should do something about this disaster in the making before things get out of hand!"

the adorable god bastet watched jeff work and then smiled and continued her work. her catgirl tribe got lots of offerings for the great fellbird, and continued to bring them to it. the remaining tribe back at the mountain began working on carvings in the mountains. a lot of the carvings would just be silly pictures, but sometimes they would be specific symbols that will be significant later!!!

i rolled a 90 teehee

the cat god then followed jeff into the break room. she made sure that no one had followed them in the room, and then grabbed a bottle off the table and clubbed jeff in the head. she then dragged him into a closet and stole his dice.

free action!

Horus decided that he needed to protect the rivers he created. If a foul beast were to breach the water and grab the giant fish before it made headway to the foul beast it was intended for, it would look horrible in front of all of the other gods.

Appearance is important.

He decided to form a mountainous range on the crest of both sides of the river banks leading between the southern pole and the Felbird's monstrous lair. The mountains would not hit the sea surrounding the metal forest and would merely circle the southwestern part of it. These mountains would also encircle a small patch of land in-between the giant dumb hellgrave of the original birds and the ice cap for the lovely penguins.

This would be a landing site. And perhaps a suitable shrine area. Most of his unfortunate accidents are bad displays of benevolence. See the hellgrave hole for example. Still, Horus nodded to himself, this would create a sublime opportunity. A place of congregation for his aptitude; not his ineptitude.

Appearance is important.

This large, manta-ray like creature rose from the depths of the seas. It found company in the seas as it ate air and spewed water. In a voice like crashing waves, whale songs, and sinking ships Morian said...

nothing.

"A monster attacking the land is almost subtle compared to past actions. Leave me be, foul trickster." Serapyr said to the him.

The moons took to their new course. One can only assume the spirit celebration on Cogus will be heating up.

The cat girls continued bringing offerings to the Fellbird while their sister tribe began learning the art of cave drawing. One day, this might become the first written language.

Jeff was clubbed and his die was stolen however it is up to him whether it holds any power, as the gods have always derived their fluctuating power from within, although he may have placed some of his power into his artifact and symbol.

A mountain range rose along parts of the river, and though there was no sea to avoid near the metal forest, it instead avoided the blue plains.

Horus smiled, but noticed the landing site wasn't created. Well, guess ice will do.

He looked to the penguins. He decided that the only way to make his will known is to birth a son on this world. A penguin son. Infused with his mighty will and intellect. He will communicate with the penguin savior and use him to negotiate with the Felbird. If he listened to this penguin messiah instead of the wily catgirls...

Horus looked up to the sky for a moment. Then to his other godly brethren.

...then maybe he will be recognized more as a competent god.

Appearance is important. And he's on a winning streak so far. Time to make the ultimate bet.

The penguins would look up to this penguin demigod. It would have the look of a penguin but the intellect and power of a chosen one. He would give this penguin a massive amount of charisma and diplomacy, allowing him to mend even the most broken of fences. This diplomatic demigod would usher in a time of great peace with the rest of the world. Even the other side of the world would be unable to resist the charm of this penguin avatar of Horus.

Yes, yes.

This will work out perfectly.

!#%$ began to sweat a bit, although whether that was from the heat as he sat upon Cogus, or from his plan failing. He expected things to be troublesome between the other gods, barely stretching past passive-aggressive levels. No, such subtleties weren't going to cut it, they were clearly already on the brink of war with each other, if they weren't there already. He was going to have to bring his A-game.

Hm...

As !#%$ pondered his next move, he chose to take another cue from his coworkers, ol' Jeff this time, and take this time to charge up some of his own energy.

Rolled 64.

He wasn't about to make this time a total waste, though. Still curious about these new gods, !#%$ took another free action to make his way over to the small, black Corves. Currently not having a specific plan, he asked him the most deep and enlightening of questions:

"What's up?"

I have decided after some deliberation (and a lot of arguing) that my dice contains a great deal, if not all of my powers, due to its immense rolling capabilities. So, what I have come up with is for every roll that Neko makes that falls short of my fantastic rolling prowess, Jeff comes closer to waking up. In this time I hope that my tribes will continue to make their ways and flourish, etc. While I let Neko do her thing and "make all the friends."

bastet rejoined the other gods with her two dice, smiling. then i got to work.

first, the tribe in the jungle will have gathered a mighty feast for the fellbird, one to really stuff him full of food! one of the members of this tribe, i will give a great hunting instinct to, and teach her how to make a weapon!

i rolled a 91 for this.


THEN, back at my other land, my people will start building a great beacon on top of the cocoa mountain, topped with sugar crystals. a lot of strange carvings will be surrounding this! it feels like a great power could echo through this area...

and i rolled a 82 with this, using jeff's dice.

Doopinus decided to ditch the second person shtick and also to wake up after a hiatus.

Rested and rejuvenated. Doopinus was relieved to see that his creatures are still untouched by the devastations of the world, but also that they continued to live in a cold environment. It would seem that fate wishes the cold to prevail, so the creatures must then adapt, and so too, must the landscape.

"The seeds I planted will become a new form of plant, adapt to the cold. It will be a plant that not only survives the cold, but thrives in it. It will be resilient and flexible, and the leaves will contain ice droplets. The fruit it bears will be as deliciously sweet as it is refreshing and nutritious, and it will glow in the light of the sun."

"My creatures will also become adept to the cold. Their bellies will be covered with thick skin and insulated fur to keep them warm. Their bodies will have an inner source of heat, a light from within that shows in their eyes and their armor. The ice will also become their biggest asset in future tools and instruments."

Doopinus, though rested, rolled a 29.

While he awaits fate, he looks to the new arrivals and the new lands. He could tell that these new gods are not to be trifled with, and that all his moves will be judged in their eyes. Any large involvement or interference from or to them could have disasterous results, so instead, he decided merely to greet them all casually.

"Hello Othersiders! I was beginning to wonder when light would be shed on the unknown realms of this world we share. I am Doopinus, creator of Leth and Soleth, the sources of light to both sides of the planet. And you each are?" Attempting to strike up conversation, waiting to see who would take it up.

FREE ACTION BLUH.

Yes, yes.

And so a penguin scion of divine strength and mortal flesh was born to the frozen south. Now, it was a child full of potential. In time, it will grow and learn of the world.

The spark of life keeping it separate was small and Serapyr saw good intention in Horus and innocence in child and in a world of beasts that was precious. He would create something. A creature with black fur, the body of a jungle cat, and the head and tail of a boar. It would watch the child grow and protect it so its light would not be snuffed by the cruel world.

Rolled 54

And so the Panoar came, and waited, and watched.

In what seemd like an ill omen to the others of his side, Corves smirked. He spoke like dripping shadows, flapping wings, and the soft shroud of night saying,

"I admire your works."

((OOC: Just posting to say I acknowledge this, and to also say that I allowed it to happen because the power of the dice had not been defined. If someone were to decide to put their power in an object before an event like this happened, and then later someone tried to take their object/power I would need to find a new way to resolve it, or have the two players discuss what happens among themselves as opposed to simply posting 'I knock him out and take it.'

As far as the rules for what brings Jeff closer to waking up, he will wake up the third time his die rolls below 60 (59 would count, 60 on the dot would not) Alternatively, he can use what little is left of his power to contact a god to help him granted he succeeds. Said god has a choice to help him with their roll and if they do, that roll would be their turn for that round.))


The power Jeff gets from worship is now all he has left.

The woman of sweets receives the divine knowledge and receives it well. She leads the tribe in preparing a feast for the Fellbird. It accepts the offering and devours it.

The stolen power revolts but is eventually twisted to the command of Bastet. Her people construct their place of power upon the mountain's crown with crystals mined from its insides.

The Grand Master stirred once more and overlooked his icy mountains. There he would adapt the land to new conditions. He created new plants to survive the harsh foreverwinter and though they were sickly and few they did their best. And then he gave his blessing to his pets to better survive but only half of them received it. There were now two variants of these creatures shortfurred and thickfurred.

Each spoke their name,

"Aether." The god made of clouds said harshly.

"Greetings Starfather, I am Serapyr." Said the red goddess with the sword of fire.

"I am Enyo of weapon and might." Spoke the goddess in golden armor.

"Corves is what they call me." The suited god told him.

"My name is Cerunnos and the silent one," The god covered in plants and wood indicted to the goddess of rising water, "is Morian."

EVENT: Each group of candy people became a tribe. In the homeland is the Kahwee tribe and in the jungle is the Suegoy. Their race will be known as the Neeca. Each tribe worshiped differently, and in order to gain their worship would need to be convinced or tricked otherwise. The Kahwee believed in animism and thanked the land and creatures after they used them. The Suegoy began worshiping the creature they repeatedly bring offerings to.
EVENT: The Leyar tribes of the metal forest benefiting from farming the blue fields begin noticing occasional oddities in the birth of some children. These oddities vary in unrelated ways but are general small, unnatural changes like tiny horns or glowing eyes. Though still rare, the Zasah have more of the mutations than the Bobun. The Zasah treat them like outcasts while the Bobun honor them as the chosen of Jeff.

!#%$ grew a wide grin from that response. "I knew as soon as I saw you that you were the smartest. I had no idea how right I was." he said with a chuckle. His eyes growing focused, !#%$ turned his head towards the ground. "Since you're such a big fan, you can have a front-row seat to what I can only hope will be my finest work. Hell, you could probably even help." he said with a smirk.

With that, !#%$ punched his arm deep into the depths of the planet, reaching for something. Where was it, where was it... AH! Yes. Finally satisfied, he pulled out his target: its head still draped in feathers, albeit singed a deep, dark black, some even holding a few lit sparks. A few leftover remnants of chains hung from it, strewn about haphazardly in spots a bit too awkward for its old parasitic buddies to bother with, now glowing nearly red-hot from the heat. It's large, spider-like legs hung idly, only just beginning to stir as it slowly dawned on the creature that it was being called on once more. Indeed, it was the Fathom that had been molested by the now-extinct Metalmites, having previously been banished to the core of the planet.

"Yes. It'll do for a nice base, I wager." !#%$ mused to himself. He then reached over, plucking up the monsters spawned from his own vomit that now stumbled around, confused by their lack of progress towards their ingrained goal. They would be repurposed, now, as a part of this great beast, giving it a highly acidic coating, even going so far as to leave this burning sludge behind it, like a snail--only, if that snail arose from the depths of Hell. These creatures would also make the spider-like legs much more... uncertain, as they rapidly expanded and contracted from growing wet, black flesh that morphed the legs with each step, with each movement. When it willed it, these lumps of black flesh could even sprout black beaks from them to either spit the acidic goop as a projectile, or have it bite, the two halves even going so far as to work like fangs and inject the substance directly into its prey.

!#%$ considered the monstrosity that laid before him. It was good, that much was certain, but it wasn't ready. Not quite yet. Just one last touch...

And so, he replaced its two eyes, previously glowing the light of the moon opposite of the one that shined overhead, now replaced with what !#%$ could only call "the Eye of Cogus," being that which sits at the center of Cogus, like an ethereal pupil: a disco ball. The eyes, that is, the ones in the creature itself, would now absorb the light of the moon above, and now not merely glowing, but emanating light of the opposite color all around to the ground below, in a way like, well, a disco ball.

With a smile and a nod, !#%$ was finally satisfied, now turning back to Corves. "Perhaps you've heard of the Fellbird, eh? Large, red, monstrous birdy, made by that Horus guy. He makes disasters about as great as I, and the Fellbird is definitely his greatest success. Nasty thing. So yeah, I heard you deal with crows, so I was thinking: perhaps you could modify this creature of mine, here, to be more bird-like, maybe some wings or something, and give it a call that'll attract the Fellbird, maybe some pheromones while you're at it." he asked, placing the abomination in the danger-filled forest. "This'd be a good spot, probably. And don't worry about the call not reaching the Fellbird: I've stored up enough power to give this thing a call that can be heard around the world, let me tell you." he went on with another chuckle, "But yes. I can assure you that with your help, we can start something... grand."

Rolled a 41.

The Great Curiosity was a jealous creator. He feared that his golems would be turned against him by the gods that roamed this world. He formed in his scriptures to them that they were not to worship other gods or serve them in any way. He commanded them to continue to delve deep into the planet in search of resources, both mineral and magical, that they may be formed into great tools and machines to further their civilization.

The Great Curiosity was at a disadvantage in dealing with other beings on his level, as he lacked a physical form. To commune with other gods, he formed the Omnisphere. This orb of undefinableness reflected his will and his intentions to whoever gazed upon it. He formed it out of pure energy at the center of the Great Storm. The sphere traveled to the skies to gain an audience with the gods.

Aether! The Great Curiosity beckons you!

Horus noticed the help from Serapyr and was without words. He never really got help from someone before. He sometimes thought no one cared about his existence before, but now someone actually helped. Made a creature. A creature that could probably eat the baby penguin in one gulp, but still, wow!

Horus was excited, to the point of being a stuttering fool. Behind the shadow of his hood, there was a hint of embarrassment. Still, he felt rejuvenated and wanted to make more! He felt like the positive energy he had at the moment was enough to purify the fellbird itself in warmth and happiness!

But he knew he needed to rest. Childbirthing was tough, and despite the afterglow of all of it, he was spent. He would use a roll to charge up for a new move.

Rolled a 67

He then sat down, looking at the globe. Contemplating things. He felt like he needed to set his pieces up in a correct order. He knew he had contingency plans for the fellbird, but it wouldn't be enough to simply get to it. So many people are trying to get its favor.

It was created by you, gosh darn it, and despite it being your greatest mistake, this mistake must be owned by you. No other god can have it. No other god should have it. It was yours first and the burden must be on you!

Horus would get up and shout to the heavens with this proclamation, but he didn't want to annoy his other gods and get like doubly hated. He frowned.

Okay.

Time for a free action. He looked to the globe and decided to check up on his self-approved giant fish treat. Thinking about it, it couldn't have had much trouble down his little river, especially since the mountainous range would keep any horrible things from getting to it.

Bastet rolled her ill-gotten dice first, grinning when Jeff's incredible luck influenced a natural 100. She decided to store that power, deeming the power necessary for the next stage of her plan.

She then rolled her own dice, getting an easy 89. She used this power to gather her hunting party around the fellbird. Her divine warrior started climbing the tower, holding her divine weapon, imbued with carvings of an unknown nature. The girls on the ground all joined hands, circling the tower as they started to sing a song of great meaning to them. A thankful song, but it was more than that. They were giving thanks to the fellbird. Not for its protection, not for its power.

For the power it was going to give to the girls.

bastet held the two dice in her hands, looking down at the world. it was almost time. she watched the three moons about to line up with the crown of the planet. a great energy started flowing through the planet, as if something incredible could happen at any moment. and in one turn, this incredible power would be here.

but before it was, bastet had one more thing to do. a free action, if you will she went down to the moon, cogus.

Bastet approached where !#%$ was, smirking slightly. "Nice moon. Mind if we have a bit of a chat? No, of course not. So, I've noticed the things that you created for me, and what you intended to do. I don't really appreciate it, so I'm going to give you a chance here." she put a finger on the side of her cheek. "One kiss. Or, I'll start spreading my friendships and love to your other creatures. They will all become super kawaii friends."

Utilizing another free action of his own (not that he could do much else at this stage), !#%$ turned to Bastet, giving an odd expression as he simultaneously raised an eyebrow and began to feel ill. Both of these aspects would increase in magnitude with every word she spoke, as well.

As she finished, he stood there, considering his thoughts carefully.

And then, he projectile vomited all over her.

Well, that's one way to reply.

Bastet held up a white silk bag with odd symbols written on it, and caught the vomit. She tied the bag closed, smiling. "You are rather predictable, you know. And, as it turns out, highly acidic." She threw the bag into the air, and it vanished into what anyone would assume to be a 'hammerspace.'

Bastet turned to leave, taking a few steps before turning back to him. "My appearance and demeanor are so vile to you, that you would throw away your creations, your lives, over a single kiss?"

"I'm pretty sure that would literally kill me." he responded with a chuckle, which subsequently lead him to flinch, putting his hand over his stomach. "Besides, I can always make new ones." he went on.

He turned his attention back towards the planet, awaiting whatever would happen next. "You just go have fun being the disgusting creature you are, I have some real fun to watch unfold." he said dismissively, not bothering to pay attention to whether or not she was even still there.

Bastet turned again. "So be it." With that, she returned to the other gods, waiting for the next turn.

With that, !#%$ punched his arm deep into the depths of the planet, reaching for something. Where was it, where was it... AH! Yes. Finally satisfied, he pulled out his target: its head still draped in feathers, albeit singed a deep, dark black, some even holding a few lit sparks. A few leftover remnants of chains hung from it, strewn about haphazardly in spots a bit too awkward for its old parasitic buddies to bother with, now glowing nearly red-hot from the heat. It's large, spider-like legs hung idly, only just beginning to stir as it slowly dawned on the creature that it was being called on once more. Indeed, it was the Fathom that had been molested by the now-extinct Metalmites, having previously been banished to the core of the planet.

"Yes. It'll do for a nice base, I wager." !#%$ mused to himself. He then reached over, plucking up the monsters spawned from his own vomit that now stumbled around, confused by their lack of progress towards their ingrained goal. They would be repurposed, now, as a part of this great beast, giving it a highly acidic coating, even going so far as to leave this burning sludge behind it, like a snail--only, if that snail arose from the depths of Hell. These creatures would also make the spider-like legs much more... uncertain, as they rapidly expanded and contracted from growing wet, black flesh that morphed the legs with each step, with each movement. When it willed it, these lumps of black flesh could even sprout black beaks from them to either spit the acidic goop as a projectile, or have it bite, the two halves even going so far as to work like fangs and inject the substance directly into its prey.

!#%$ considered the monstrosity that laid before him. It was good, that much was certain, but it wasn't ready. Not quite yet. Just one last touch...

And so, he replaced its two eyes, previously glowing the light of the moon opposite of the one that shined overhead, now replaced with what !#%$ could only call "the Eye of Cogus," being that which sits at the center of Cogus, like an ethereal pupil: a disco ball. The eyes, that is, the ones in the creature itself, would now absorb the light of the moon above, and now not merely glowing, but emanating light of the opposite color all around to the ground below, in a way like, well, a disco ball.

With a smile and a nod, !#%$ was finally satisfied, now turning back to Corves. "Perhaps you've heard of the Fellbird, eh? Large, red, monstrous birdy, made by that Horus guy. He makes disasters about as great as I, and the Fellbird is definitely his greatest success. Nasty thing. So yeah, I heard you deal with crows, so I was thinking: perhaps you could modify this creature of mine, here, to be more bird-like, maybe some wings or something, and give it a call that'll attract the Fellbird, maybe some pheromones while you're at it." he asked, placing the abomination in the danger-filled forest. "This'd be a good spot, probably. And don't worry about the call not reaching the Fellbird: I've stored up enough power to give this thing a call that can be heard around the world, let me tell you." he went on with another chuckle, "But yes. I can assure you that with your help, we can start something... grand."

Rolled a 41.


Corves added his power to the creation of the creature.

Rolled 99

With the power of !#%$'s reserves combined with the added strength of Corves a terrible monster would rise. This beast was called Writh. It rose tall with its powerful talons ready to do its master's bidding. It was covered in sludge that ate through living flesh and a long single chain eternally glowing red from heat wrapped around its body in various places. The sludge bubbled and shifted forming brief eyes and beaks and fangs and hands like the Fathom's single arm before turning back into muck. The slime burned with memories of the hated foe that illuded it and hid so close to them. It had a set of two powerful wings covered in the feathers of the Fathom mixed with the putrid swamp creatures. On its face was the maw of the Fathom with a great beak awkwardly fitted around it, lined with rows of razor sharp teeth. Its eyes were powerful strobe lights that blinded with the power of Soleth at night and blanketed darkness around it with the power of Leth during the day. It screeched and roared and cawed all the same to call its terrible mate and perhaps other things.

The Great Curiosity was a jealous creator. He feared that his golems would be turned against him by the gods that roamed this world. He formed in his scriptures to them that they were not to worship other gods or serve them in any way. He commanded them to continue to delve deep into the planet in search of resources, both mineral and magical, that they may be formed into great tools and machines to further their civilization.

Rolled 96


It had been some time since Curiosity had set eyes on his creations. They had formed a rough tribe about now. The lightning-blessed golems with glowing markings were considered mystics and leaders. They were also more intelligent than the others of their kind and banded them together. These special golems guarded the scriptures of their creator but were not able to read them yet so they spent more time researching. However that did not work out as well as they did not even fully have their own language formed yet. What they did have was a basic language forming from the small cave drawings they made to cover the canyon walls. If they could read the scripture, they might learn to worship The Great Curiosity.

The also had a rough system of reproduction in place. Whenever a golem died they carved a new one from stone and lay them in the energy forest. Only the mystics were allowed to be around during this event as that was both the tradition and law of their people. The newborn would then be taken to the canyon by the mystic where they would join the tribe.

This time they understood their command better and were compelled to dig in search for metals in the earth. The new golems were often carved and shaped to be better fit for digging. Anything they found they amassed in their caves as they currently had no use for any of it.

The Great Curiosity was at a disadvantage in dealing with other beings on his level, as he lacked a physical form. To commune with other gods, he formed the Omnisphere. This orb of undefinableness reflected his will and his intentions to whoever gazed upon it. He formed it out of pure energy at the center of the Great Storm. The sphere traveled to the skies to gain an audience with the gods.

Aether! The Great Curiosity beckons you!

((OOC: I just made this part a Free Action. That just consists of talking to the gods, no need to roll for that.))

Aether looked into the sphere and thought poorly of a god that couldn't manifest properly. He spoke a quick annoyed sentence, "What do you want?"

He looked upon his creation and saw that his great fish had been held up half way there by the dual efforts of the Ayla and the Leyar tribe by the river in the blue field by the metal forest. Though the Ayla do not eat traditional foods the Leyar requested their help. The tribe would feast on the fish for weeks to come if only they could catch it.

Perhaps you could give them the fish in exchange for worship?

The huntresses gathered around to worship what they considered their god, draped in clothes made of jungle that they use for camouflage. They sung a song of thanks to the Fellbird with a eerie foresight as if they knew what the gods had planned for them.

Just then, the Fellbird took flight. A powerful cry beckoned it across the world where it landed in the forest of the other gods to meet its new counterpart. However Writh smelled its ancient enemy on its destined companion and its flesh howled with hatred. A battle took place and many trees were felled and wildlife was killed in the midst of their awe inspiring clash. When both sides left scarred and wounded, the Fellbird returning to its nest and the Writh sauntering off into the jungle, in the center of the battlefield in a spot recently cleared of trees and life with ground scarred by acid ooze there lay a large, single egg.

JEFF DID SUDDENLY SIT UP, IN A PANIC. HIS FATE HAD NOT IMPROVED, BUT HE DID FEEL THE GREAT POWER. IT WAS COMING, AND THERE WAS NOTHING HE COULD DO. HE BANGED ON THE DOOR, BUT NO ONE WOULD COME. SO, HE DID THE ONLY THING HE COULD DO. HE KNELT DOWN ON ONE KNEE, AND PRAYED. HE REACHED FOR HIS DICE TO TRY AND STOP WHAT WAS ABOUT TO HAPPEN, TO MAKE THE MOONS MISALIGN, OR TO FORCE THE POWER TO BE CONTAINED, BUT HE REALIZED HIS DICE WAS GONE. A PETTY THIEF, SOME LOWLIFE MUST HAVE STOLEN IT. HE HAD PLACED MOST OF HIS POWER IN IT, BUT HE FELT A SMALL SPARK OF IT LEFT. HE USED IT TO PRAY TO HIS PEOPLE. AND HE SAW THEIR STRUGGLE WITH THE GIANT FISH. HE WOULD HAVE HELPED THEM KILL IT, WHEN HE SAW IT.

THE MARKING.

HE USED THE REMAINDER OF HIS POWER, AIDED BY THE PRAYERS OF HIS PEOPLE, AND HE TOUCHED THE HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE ATTACKING THE FISH. AND NOT ONLY DID THEY LET THE FISH GO, THEY ALSO FED IT THE FRUIT OF THE FOREST AND AIDED IT ON ITS JOURNEY. BUT BEFORE IT WAS GONE, JEFF DID REACH THROUGH ONE OF HIS CHILDREN TO TOUCH THE FISH, GIFTING IT THE GREAT POWER OF THE FRUIT OF THE METAL FOREST. GIVING IT A MUCH MORE POWERFUL SWIMMING SPEED, AND THICKER SCALES.

WITH THAT, JEFF FELL OVER AGAIN, EXHAUSTED. HE COULD ONLY HOPE THAT HORUS WOULD KEEP AN EYE ON HIS PEOPLE WHILE HE WAS INDISPOSED.

HE THEN PASSED OUT AGAIN.

Bastet grinned, watching the moons begin to line up above the crown. Not yet, but any moment. She didn't have time to waste. If anything were to go wrong, it would be her roll. She grasped both dice in her hands, closing her eyes. She then tossed them both, letting fate take over.

Jeff's dice, naturally being full of his abnormal luck, landed on 99. She watched her other dice tumble across the board, landing on 98. Clearly, fate was on her side. She then used her remaining power, the power she had stored, to power her role further. It was time to go to work.

The fellbird had returned to its nest, wounded. Bastet started stirring the clouds around the nest, creating a great storm over it. Her mightiest warrior reached the top of the tower, ready to face the massive bird as thunder echoed around the forest. She held her weapon to the air as she addressed the fellbird with a mighty war cry, a cry that boomed over the thunder. Lightning rained down onto the tower, striking the fellbird in several places as her weapon lit up. She then ran at the fellbird, leaping onto it and climbing up onto the bird's head. She raised her weapon high into the air, lightning striking it several times, the symbols on the blade glowing a bright pink. The warrior then turned the weapon on herself, piercing her midriff. Pink lightning erupted from the tip of the weapon, covering the fellbird. It let out one last, weak cry, before erupting in a bright, white light.

The girls at the bottom of the tower also started glowing slightly, as their bodies started to change. Wings of different colors erupted out of their backs, and their cute kitty feet turned into sharp talons. They continued their singing, praising the fellbird for its gift, as they looked up to their mighty huntress. She had grown, not quite as big as the fellbird, her arms covered in pink feathers and two huge wings having sprouted out of her back, covered in the pink feathers. She had four eyes, and sharp talons on the ends of her feet. Even her tail had feathers on it now.

Bastet nodded, turning her attention away from her new creations briefly to address her lands. The massive crystal that sat on top of her mountain was fully covered in carvings now, and it had an ominous feeling to it. She reached down to the planet, and picked up this crystal. She then put it in the center of Cogus as it lined up with the top of the volcano.

The world trembled, and all life paused for a second, looking to the moons. A bright flash of red light erupted out of the top of the tallest volcano, and went through the three moons, empowering them. The two stars turned a blood red, and the entire land was bathed in the color. All of the creatures in the land would feel a great power washing through them, as the planet rejuvenated itself. Areas that were brown would become a little greener, oceans would have more life in them. Existing tribes would have a population boost, and feel happier. And the world was a bit more kawaii.

The light would end after the next turn.

Bastet smiled, watching her crystal gather this power. She directed the tribe around the fellbird's old nest to return home. They stretched their new wings out, and took flight.

!#%$'s eyes grew watery from the display. The creature itself that was just made was the most beautiful thing he had ever seen. And then the meeting with the Fellbird! Oh, such a loving display to make a wonderful child, it was simply stunning. "Happy" was a terrible word to describe his feelings. Ecstatic, delighted, jubilation, euphoria: all of these would fall short, but they would have to suffice.

With that, he turned his attention towards the egg. Between all the acidic sludge that surrounded the area and its likely very durable shell, considering its parents, it would likely be fine. Nevertheless, !#%$ felt a sense of urgency when it came to hatching it, or perhaps that was just impatience due to his giddiness. He supposed it could be that he felt the need to follow up, when the gods of this half of the world no doubt heard the screech of his new creation, and undoubtedly saw the majestic Fellbird in flight on its trip over.

Or perhaps the encounter with Bastet had made him nervous. No, that's absurd.

It was then, though, that as he sat upon his ethereal disco ball in Cogus that he felt a prick, making him jump up in surprise.

A crystal.

No, this wouldn't do. Such an intrusion on his sacred ground... or, the closest thing he had to sacred ground, at any rate. It was then that he noticed its effects on the world below. No, this would do even less. Especially with that egg outside. He was fine with sharing this creature's creation with Horus, in part: his work seemed respectable enough. He created the Fellbird, how could he not be a rad guy? Hell, even Corves had a hand in this creation, as well, but from the little they had interacted, !#%$ could already feel they were birds of a feather. To have Bastet influence this creature's existence, though? No, that would not do at all. Despite his words, !#%$ did feel the need to protect at least this one entity, as much as he didn't want to admit it.

!#%$ considered the situation carefully.

Finally coming upon a decision, !#%$ chose to move the egg. Specifically, to the the southern pole of the planet, completely opposite from the planet's crown, and thus no doubt mostly, if not entirely safe from the crystal's light. Horus' penguin-like creations rested there, after all; perhaps he might even take some responsibility over this offspring that was basically a descendant of his and have them protect it in some way, or something.

Rolled a 58.

!#%$ could only hope that the acidic slime that came from his own gullet that covered the Writh would be enough to protect it from this other gods' influence, although its wounded state did worry him slightly.

Horus was shaken when he looked up to the Great Meeting, which is the classification he would use from now on as he did not want to call it a "beautiful display of love". It was, for lack of a better word, horrifying in every regard. It was...

...wait, he could actually find better words: vulgar, indecent, x-rated, bawdy, coarse, erotic, filthy, gross, hard-core, immodest, immoral, improper, impure, in bad taste, incontinent, indelicate, lascivious, lecherous, lewd, libertine, libidinous, liscentious, lustful, naughty, obscene, off-color, profligate, questionable, racy, rakish, ribald, risque, salacious, scandalous, scurrilous, shameless, taboo, unclean, unconventional, unvirtuous, vile, wicked...just plain not-Christian, or whatever name your penguin baby will be given. He felt dirty just knowing that it was an event that occurred and that he was indirectly involved in it.

...urgh...

But to be fair, it did produce this lovely egg that has suddenly appeared in the penguin lands. That's pretty nice. Maybe the combination of the two most horrible creatures ever created may produce something...not? Maybe?

Horus got up from his chair. He saw the grief the fish had to go through and saw the kind acts of the tribe. It almost seemed like it was through some invisible hand. The fish would get to its destination rather quickly now. Maybe the Fellbird would see this gift and start worship for the little god that could. Corralling it would be the best thing right now. Especially since he doesn't want...that...to happen again.
And he saw the tribes that aided him. He knew he'd have to return the favor, but he can't do anything on the ground yet. He has to save that moment. He'd have to leave them be for now.

...then again...maybe there's a way they can be aware of his help.

Thankfully, he has the perfect way to use his enhanced power.

He looked to the rivers, then to the icecap. It's time for his namesake to return to the forefront. He's the falcon god, gosh darnit.

He focused on the entirety of the rocky mountainside surrounding the river. With his rested power, this would not be a problem at all. He then willed the rocky terrain to form a new type of falcon. These falcons, born of the rock, would be naturally resistant to many ills of the world, including potential sludge and acid from the fellbird's presence. They would also be naturally engaged in the well-being of the Ayla and Leyar tribes, to the point that a few of those tribesmen would be able to tame the lesser falcons if they so desired. Regardless, they would aid the tribesmen in any way they can.
Meanwhile, the falcons would be naturally friendly to the penguins of the south, as they shared a creator. The benefits of aided relief to the tribes near the metal forest as well as the penguins of the south would make traversing the river easier for those three groups.

He held his makeshift die up in the air, then cast his roll in an albeit overdramatic action. TIME TO FLY!

Rolled a 70

"Whew!"

Horus stumbled for a moment, tired from his overdramatic spiel. He stretched and decided to use his Free Action to enjoy a nice beverage. He peeked into the GODLY REFRESHMENT LOUNGE to make sure no one was inside. He didn't want to socialize. He likes to be helpful to the other gods, sure, and if they ever needed help, he'd probably end up doing it just so they wouldn't bother him again, but he'd be happy to avoid social interaction. He walked to the fridge and looked inside.
Water. He's had enough of water.
Fresh-squeezed orange juice. Wonder who decided to make oranges.
Coca-cola? The penguins weren't due for that beverage to appear until years later when the polar bear traders get created.

Hm...
He decided to go with orange juice.

Because who gives a !#%$ about when or where !#%$ is (with Corves? On Cogus? With the Great Curiosity??? WHO KNOWS), he just so happened to show up in the holy lounge of nonsense to greet good ol' Horus. "Hey there, buddy!" he said with a large smirk and a pat on the back, "Fancy meeting you here."

With that, !#%$ put his arm on Horus' shoulder in a friendly manner, going on, "Just wanted to say, you've been doing a great job! That giant cavern into the depths of the planet? Great fun, looks hella imposing, let me tell you, and I'm sure I don't even have to mention how awe-inspiring the Fellbird is, had to store some power and get another dude's help to even come close to making a worthy partner for it, let me tell you. Speaking of, I'm sure you'll do juuuust fiiine in watching over our little grandbaby, eh? Might be a bit unpleasant for the penguin fellows you got goin' down there, but I'm sure it won't liquify too many of them before it realizes they were there to watch over it, y'know?"

!#%$ stood there with a surprisingly sincere-looking grin as he awaited any sort of answer.

Horus almost spat out his orange juice at the sudden pat on the back. Oh no. Socializing.

He looks up at the imposing, yet otherwise plain figure talking to him, the arm on his shoulder, while friendly, was foreign in his comfort zone of a single pixel of real space. It felt as if the arm was the heaviest thing a god could lift to Horus.

In his mind, a thousand "please leave"s echoed throughout, as if it was swallowing the recesses of his innermost thoughts. But he couldn't leave that impression.

A-a-appearance is important.

"A-ah, yes, you...um...yes. T-the fellbird wasn't...e-entirely...I mean, grandbaby?! I don't...It wasn't...Uh...liquify?...yes, right...uh, huh..." Horus nodded rather forcefully, trying hard to not look entirely out of place in this god-like...lounge area. He squeezed the orange juice box in his hand to relieve the evergrowing tension in his chest. Social interaction is not a strong suit.

Wait...liquify? Did he just say liquify?!

"Wait...I-I don't think it'd be good for m-my penguins to liquify! I've...I mean, I have plans for them!" Horus looked up at !#%$, or Huey as he was now known to Horus. Inside of the shadowy visage in Horus's hood, a worried expression could be seen in his two wide eyes.

"Relaaaax!" Huey !#%$ said, "Like I said, I'm sure it won't be too many. Gotta break a few eggs to make an omelet. Well, bad example, since the egg's the one doing the breaking to others in this case, but you get the idea, right?" With a pat atop Horus' head, he went on, "It'll all pay off in the long run, can bring him back to the other half to really have some fun when it's ready." He looked around shiftily to make sure no one--a very specific one, in this case--was listening, before finishing in a much quieter and more sinister tone with "Who knows, might even end up being our greatest weapon against that catty !#%$."

Horus was still unnerved by all of this, but the mention of the catgirl reminds him.

"H-her! She's trying to...!" He drops his OJ box and grasps Huey's shirt, an expression of horror on his face.

He immediately stops himself, his arms slacking to his side, and he looked down at the crushed orange juice box, the contents being spilled on the floor.

He then gave out a tired sigh. "M-maybe you're right."

...it was then that an idea flashed in his mind.

"Wait...you! Y-you could help me!"

!#%$'s expression quickly turned a bit confused at all this, but at the final sentence, a friendly grin quickly returned. "That's the spirit!" he shouted with another pat on the back, "Us gods making things of true beauty, we gotta work together. So anything to help a pal out."

Horus abhorred what he was about to say, but he knew it was something that needed to be done. He needed to help the Fellbird. Even a monstrous blight upon Ayotilian life needed to be saved.

He knew the results have not been foreseen yet and he knew what he was about to ask of would be of an extreme detriment to everything he held dear, but he knew it was his only chance. He will own his mistakes.

"I..."

Horus looked down, his eyes tensely closed as he brought up the will to say what he needed to say. He then looked up to his so-called brother-in-arms, a fierce look in his eyes.

"I need you...to babysit."

The confused expression returned. "Babysit?" he asked, "Isn't that what I'm asking you to do? Or do you mean the penguins, are you still held up on that? I suppose I could maybe keep them from being liquified, possibly. Or is there something else you've made that I missed? Oooh, did you make the Fellbird a lackey? Or even a master? Far be it from me to assume the Fellbird's the greatest extent of your powers, after all. Oh man, whatever it is you mean, I'd be happy to look after it." he went on, rubbing his hands together in anticipation.

Horus blinked. This guy, man...he's totally trustworthy.

Sigh...you gotta roll with the punches. That's at least one lesson this god can teach you.

Well, time to give off a show of your best confidence acting.

"I want you to take care of my duties for a few turns moments. Keep the river safe, make sure the giant fish gets to the fellbird in time, it'd be great if you could deal with the liquify thing...but specifically, I want you to figure out what to do about the flying catgirls. They've...they can't be allowed to continue with this. T-they're using my mis-...my Fellbird to become godlike and it's...heresy! That's right, heresy! The word I wanted was..." Horus was sputtering, but then calmed down a little, "Heresy."

Horus looked at Huey Lewis once more with a show of confidence. "If it works out, the result will be greater than anything else the world has to offer. It will be...glorious."

And it was true, to be honest.

Huey's grin grew ever-the-wider at that. "Now that is a cause I can get behind. You go do your thing, and I'll make sure your fish's propelled by jet engines by the end of the hour." he cheered happily. "As for the penguins, uh... maybe I can give them... some of my stomach lining or something..." he went on, more thinking aloud than anything at this point as his mind wandered off.

Horus watched as Huey just kept sputtering on about it. This was a huge gamble. A huge mistake.

...no! This won't be a mistake. Well, okay, putting him in charge of his delicate creatures was kind of a mistake, but what Horus was planning couldn't fail.

He was about to walk away when he slipped. Whoazey!

He landed on the ground with a thud. The dang orange juice!

"Ow...I-I'm okay." Horus just laid on the ground, slightly dazed for a moment. "Would you mind grabbing the mop from the closet?"

"Yes!" Huey cheered, "I can use a mop to clean up their remains!... Wait, no, that wasn't the problem at all, was it." Musing to himself, he apparently actually acknowledged the request on some level, as he headed for the closet. As he opened it, Jeff's passed-out self would find itself tumbling to the floor below.

"Ah, here it is." Huey said to himself as he grabbed the mop, not even acknowledging what just happened as he made his way back, lost in thought, with the mop.

Horus grabbed the mop from him and started to mop away the orange juice. He then walked over to the closet and saw Jeff lying on the ground.

"Uh...did you know about this?"

Finally snapping out of his train of thought, Huey (which is just way easier to type than !#%$) looked over. Upon seeing Jeff on the ground, he spoke not a word, and just gave a simple shrug.

Horus lightly tapped Jeff on the shoulder with his foot. "H-hey. Hello?"

JEFF DID WAKE UP TO THE PRODDING, FEELING INCREDIBLY WEAK. HE GRABBED ONTO HORUS, USING HIM TO PULL HIMSELF UP, LOOKING AT THE SPILL ON THE GROUND. "What all happened there?" HIS FACE DID THEN GO PALE, AND HE LOOKED AT HORUS. "Did she do it? Did that monster steal mah power?"

"U-u-uh," Horus was visibly frightened. "I...uh...."

Horus looked over to Huey. "YOUR DUTIES BEGIN NOW!" And he ran away.

Huey stared forward with a sharp intensity, a very serious look on his face as he looked in Jeff's general direction, but more as if he were looking past him than at him. "Yes, I believe she has. It'd certainly explain her sudden spike in power recently. She's begun infecting the world with her... malfunction, and trying to snuff out the beauty that is the Fellbird." he explained, his previous friendly demeanor having apparently run away with Horus. His eyes finally shifted their stare to Jeff himself, "It's good to see you're against her too, then." he went on, "And good to hear that her power isn't innate."

JEFF DID SHIFT UNCOMFORTABLY ON THE SPOT AS HUEY SAID THAT. "Ah'm..." JEFF'S NECK DID SUDDENLY TIGHTEN, AND HE GRABBED AT HIS SHIRT COLLAR. A VERY FAINT BUZZING SOUND COULD BE HEARD UNDER THE SHIRT. HE SEEMED TO CALM DOWN, AND UNBUTTONED THE TOP BUTTON ON HIS SHIRT, REVEALING A SMALL METAL NECKLACE. OR RATHER, A METAL COLLAR. IT HAD A GREEN DOT ON IT, AND AN UNMISTAKABLE CAT PAW PRINT ENGRAVED ON IT.

JEFF BUTTONED HIS SHIRT AGAIN, CLEARING HIS THROAT. "A'hm not against her, she's the best leadah we can hope fer. A'h jist hope we can all git along, an' be supah kayweh friends." JEFF DID GRAB THE MOP AND STARTED CLEANING UP HORUS' MESS, A SMALL SMILE COMING TO HIS FACE. "S'not like the powah in tha crystal can be negated by ahn equally powahful negacrystal created bah the moons alighnin over the south pole." JEFF DID CONTINUE MOPPING, SHRUGGING.

"Thah would be too simple, raight?"

Huey's eye twitched slightly, a frown quickly forming on his face. He scratched at his stomach a bit, but otherwise seemed fine.

Choosing to simply ignore the first half of what Jeff said for the time being, Huey mused "Yeah, that would be simple." He paused, seeming to suddenly be lost in thought again. After a few moments of this, he snapped to attention again, shaking his head, going on with "Yeah, that would be too simple. What's the point of beauty when it becomes conformity? This holy magic hullabaloo isn't my style. Can leave that to someone who gives a !#%$."

With that, !#%$ turned and began to walk out. "Perhaps it's time I show her just what my style's like." he finished to no one in particular.

After a few more steps, he stopped in his tracks. Wincing his face, he grumbled, "In due time. I suppose I still have that "babysitting" to do." At that moment, though, his good ol' mischievous smirk returned after far too long, it seemed, as an idea struck. "No, I suppose that's fine. All good things start small, and there's no time like the present. Yes. That will do nicely." he practically muttered to himself, making his way out once again.

"Time for the world to burn in beauty."

((OOC: So, I've got a pretty big problem. Two actually. I'm going to address them right now, as a final say on this sort of thing. First of all, mentioning actions that were just rolled for has to stop. While you can use your roll in preparation of other gods actions, acting as if they will happen for sure is a bad idea and that should be stopped. While you know this now, I'm going to continue with this post as I had planned to.

The other thing I wanted to address is that creatures have free will and while you can influence them to do things you can't or can't always control them, no matter how good your roll is. I've tried making this clear several times though action. I've given leeway based on rolls and what you're trying to do, but I'm laying down the law right now. To explain this further you're stating what you're trying to do, not every minute detail of what happens if you succeed.

So here it is: The law.))


Mecha wrote:
HE USED THE REMAINDER OF HIS POWER, AIDED BY THE PRAYERS OF HIS PEOPLE, AND HE TOUCHED THE HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE ATTACKING THE FISH. AND NOT ONLY DID THEY LET THE FISH GO, THEY ALSO FED IT THE FRUIT OF THE FOREST AND AIDED IT ON ITS JOURNEY. BUT BEFORE IT WAS GONE, JEFF DID REACH THROUGH ONE OF HIS CHILDREN TO TOUCH THE FISH, GIFTING IT THE GREAT POWER OF THE FRUIT OF THE METAL FOREST. GIVING IT A MUCH MORE POWERFUL SWIMMING SPEED, AND THICKER SCALES.


Jeff finds that he is too weak to do this and not only is he too weak but he is also trying to control a tribe that does not worship him. While he did have a little power from prayer the most he could do is contact other gods, and even that caused effort when it was normally effortless. Nothing happens, the fish is caught by the Zasah and the Ayla and a great feast is held in the honor of this grand bounty. They saw its strange marking and only regarded it as a minor oddity.

Nekomusume~chan wrote:
Bastet grinned, watching the moons begin to line up above the crown. Not yet, but any moment. She didn't have time to waste. If anything were to go wrong, it would be her roll. She grasped both dice in her hands, closing her eyes. She then tossed them both, letting fate take over.

Jeff's dice, naturally being full of his abnormal luck, landed on 99. She watched her other dice tumble across the board, landing on 98. Clearly, fate was on her side. She then used her remaining power, the power she had stored, to power her role further. It was time to go to work.

The fellbird had returned to its nest, wounded. Bastet started stirring the clouds around the nest, creating a great storm over it. Her mightiest warrior reached the top of the tower, ready to face the massive bird as thunder echoed around the forest. She held her weapon to the air as she addressed the fellbird with a mighty war cry, a cry that boomed over the thunder. Lightning rained down onto the tower, striking the fellbird in several places as her weapon lit up. She then ran at the fellbird, leaping onto it and climbing up onto the bird's head. She raised her weapon high into the air, lightning striking it several times, the symbols on the blade glowing a bright pink. The warrior then turned the weapon on herself, piercing her midriff. Pink lightning erupted from the tip of the weapon, covering the fellbird. It let out one last, weak cry, before erupting in a bright, white light.

The girls at the bottom of the tower also started glowing slightly, as their bodies started to change. Wings of different colors erupted out of their backs, and their cute kitty feet turned into sharp talons. They continued their singing, praising the fellbird for its gift, as they looked up to their mighty huntress. She had grown, not quite as big as the fellbird, her arms covered in pink feathers and two huge wings having sprouted out of her back, covered in the pink feathers. She had four eyes, and sharp talons on the ends of her feet. Even her tail had feathers on it now.

Bastet nodded, turning her attention away from her new creations briefly to address her lands. The massive crystal that sat on top of her mountain was fully covered in carvings now, and it had an ominous feeling to it. She reached down to the planet, and picked up this crystal. She then put it in the center of Cogus as it lined up with the top of the volcano.

The world trembled, and all life paused for a second, looking to the moons. A bright flash of red light erupted out of the top of the tallest volcano, and went through the three moons, empowering them. The two stars turned a blood red, and the entire land was bathed in the color. All of the creatures in the land would feel a great power washing through them, as the planet rejuvenated itself. Areas that were brown would become a little greener, oceans would have more life in them. Existing tribes would have a population boost, and feel happier. And the world was a bit more kawaii.

The light would end after the next turn.


Because of the detail nature of this post I'm interpreting each action separately. The first action is to mutate the physical form of the cat girls. The second action is to change the sun red and rejuvenate the world. Anything else is not an action.

First, the Suegoy tribe are empowered by the storm and mutated. They sprout wings that match their various colors and grow talons. One of them is changed further becoming a beast of their own. A larger cat harpy with four eyes and feathered arms and tail. She became the chief of the village. If anything this was an act only showing the might of the god they worshiped. The tribe did not return to the sugar lands as Bastet had pleaded them too. Instead they stayed and worshiped the Fellbird, their god, for giving them power. A small amount of the cat harpies were sent back to the homeland, with wooden idols carved in the image of the Fellbird with their tools. They would bring their religion to their homeland. The rest of the tribe spent their time tending to the Fellbird's wounds.

Next, everything was set for the plan. The twin stars of night and day were aligned and the crystal was placed in the center of the gear. When the gear was under the stars and above the volcano a burst of energy shot from the core of the planet straight through its astral eyes. The world was bathed in red light and life was flourishing all over the planet. Animals and tribes alike all reproduced abundantly under the red stars. The wounded Fellbird and Writh both healed quickly under the red light. For the next turn it will be easier for all gods to create life, even without worship.

Elby wrote:
Finally coming upon a decision, !#%$ chose to move the egg. Specifically, to the the southern pole of the planet, completely opposite from the planet's crown, and thus no doubt mostly, if not entirely safe from the crystal's light. Horus' penguin-like creations rested there, after all; perhaps he might even take some responsibility over this offspring that was basically a descendant of his and have them protect it in some way, or something.

Rolled a 58.


The god hid his creation's child away from the red light of the moon and sun in the frozen crown opposite of their gathering.

However, Serapyr took notice of this. He looked to the ice cap's demi-god who has since aged. No longer a child yet not full grown it was beginning to realize how different it was from its peers and how truly alone it was in the cold. The Panoar had became his companion as he rode around the ice looking for meaning in his life. Serapyr tried to manifest to the penguin-like bird, to tell him of the horrible egg of great monsters and that he alone was the one that could stop the creature from hatching.

Rolled 81

The holy child saw the shimmering of an ethereal fire in the blizzard and approached it with curiosity. He had never seen fire before. It showed him visions of the creatures parents, the ruin of the battlefield where they fought, and the egg's location. The bird, lovingly named Squawk by its parents as they are not quite to the level of intelligent naming a tribe might be, saw this as meaning in its life, its purpose, and set out to find the egg. There it was, the snow around the egg had melted as if receding in terror and it lie there in the frozen grass. Squawk's mighty stead reared back and dashed the egg, the contents spilling out. He returned to the others of his kind though they were simple animals.

However in the remains of the egg something stirred and the fetus of the abomination moved as if it was too horrible for even death to accept it. Though the creature was horrible and deformed in its premature state and could not grow it was still half alive.

Falcon6 wrote:
Thankfully, he has the perfect way to use his enhanced power.

He looked to the rivers, then to the icecap. It's time for his namesake to return to the forefront. He's the falcon god, gosh darnit.

He focused on the entirety of the rocky mountainside surrounding the river. With his rested power, this would not be a problem at all. He then willed the rocky terrain to form a new type of falcon. These falcons, born of the rock, would be naturally resistant to many ills of the world, including potential sludge and acid from the fellbird's presence. They would also be naturally engaged in the well-being of the Ayla and Leyar tribes, to the point that a few of those tribesmen would be able to tame the lesser falcons if they so desired. Regardless, they would aid the tribesmen in any way they can.
Meanwhile, the falcons would be naturally friendly to the penguins of the south, as they shared a creator. The benefits of aided relief to the tribes near the metal forest as well as the penguins of the south would make traversing the river easier for those three groups.

He held his makeshift die up in the air, then cast his roll in an albeit overdramatic action. TIME TO FLY!

Rolled a 70


Though the tribes showed him no kindness and literally ate his face Horus set forth to building them protection. Large, stone birds that laughed at gravity and flew to spite it came crawling from the mountains. They had a natural resistance to acid of creatures like Writh. They protected the Ayla, Zasah, and penguins. The Zasah were the only ones interested in the birds friendliness and tamed the smaller ones. Flying gave them a clear advantage in the ecosystem of the jungle. Ayla preferred the ground and their pools while the penguins were just animals and thus simply not interested in anything other than eating fish and reproducing.

EVENT: The Ayla are now considered intelligent enough to be a tribe though they do not operate like one as they eat from their pools and reproduce as a mountain. Because they can travel between pools quickly and easily they will all be considered one tribe. While their population count will be together, at any given moment there will be about 25 at a pool and 75 males at the volcano.
EVENT: Other creatures had heard the call of Writh and arrive in the jungle to meet it. First to arrive are its four Fathom kin. From the desert by the jungle arrives. It looks like all the Fathom did when they were made. The Fathom from the brightdark ice caves arrives with a perpetually frosted look to it. Then the Fathom from the Desert of Sorrow arrives. It looked as if the aura of hopeless had even been weighing on a beast such as itself and though they did not age it looked like it had as it looked tired and its feathers turned grey. And then the Fathom from the sea arrives with glowing red eyes. A great serpent came from the swamp continent it had beautiful scales it would use to lure people to it so it could eat them with its monstrous mouth. A large and lumbering creature came from the desert continent with brown fur and large claws, it was the reason life stood there no longer. Then from the center of the earth came a huge, green insect like creature. Its many spawn ruled the remains of that half of the world's sprawling cave system.
NOTICE: The Golems do not gain the bonus of the sun as they do not reproduce normally.

Looking over the events that took place, !#%$ sighed. "Life's nothing without risks, I suppose." he said to himself.

---------------------


!#%$ approached Bastet, his trademark smirk as present as ever. "Hey, just came to say thanks. Thanks for helping me realize how I should be doing things. Thanks for showing me to never hold back. And most importantly, thanks for giving me something to fight against." he said with a chuckle. "Have a little gift for your troubles." he went on, closing in with the most vile of actions: a kiss, right on the cheek.

Immediately, he began spewing chunks, as one might expect: but he managed to quickly launch it directly into a sack he had brought with him. This went on for about a solid minute; makes one wonder just what this dude eats.

"Oh yeah, and thanks for the idea." !#%$ finished as he swung the bag over his shoulder, trying his best not to look as horribly feeble and meek as he felt, his skin now ghostly pale.

With that done, he turned and made his way off. There were things to do.

---------------------


!#%$ sighed at the loss of the fish he noticed on the way back, and considered making a replacement, but there were more pressing matters: namely, the fetus. He was hesitant, but as he said: what was life without risks? With its current position and how he was handling things, he could work double time and enact the next part of his plan while he was at it. Without another thought, he opened the bag and poured the vomit over the fetus, first, hoping that such a vile creature would obtain the nourishment it needed from it. Once that was finished, he turned the bag over to the penguins that lay around him. He wasn't about to pretend they even began to have a chance at such, however, he used some power of his own on them. They would be partially-melted, no doubt, looking like some sort of horrible zombie-penguins, while simultaneously fusing with the vomit, turning them into creatures considerably larger, considerably tougher, and considerably more vile.

He took special care that the dear Squawk would not take part in this puke bathing, though. !#%$ had a special plan for that one. That would come in due time. Indeed, he went to great lengths to make sure Squawk would not be tainted, but still live all the same, away from the likely-hostile puke-penguins, now.

Rolled a 29.

Noticing the monster party going on up with the Writh, but not really having the resources to do anything with it at the moment, !#%$ knew exactly what he had to do.

Free action: High-five Corves.

Horus walked back to his little area. He knows the amount of risk he took putting another in charge of his duties. He probably didn't realize just how much risk putting THAT ONE in charge.

Nonetheless, he saw what occurred and was amazed and disappointed. The Fellbird was at full strength now. No fish to help him see his true creator.

No hope.

Horus sat down on the ground, close to his globe. He took out a fabled second die of unspecified origin. It would allow him to calculate his plan. He rolled. He saw the number in secret and muttered to himself. Having such time away from his flock, both old and new. Not to mention poor, young Squawk. Nonetheless, it was an opportunity he couldn't pass over. If his plan works, all strife in the world will end.

Nonetheless, it was something he must deal with if he is to finally deal with the Fellbird once and for all. And in doing so, his name will be echoed throughout the chambers! He won't be such a worthless fraud anymore.

He will have saved the world.

Horus closed his eyes and dropped into slumber, his power charging.

Rolled a 68

((OOC: Since I'm charging up and it would be rather dumb to just repeat "he continues to charge power", could I utilize Free actions to just keep an eye on the Fellbird even if the character's asleep?))

The Omnisphere radiated a booming power, reflective of the might of the clouds. It spoke to Aether.

The Great Curiosity sees that you, like he, are a being that wields great power. He is curious as to your mechanisms and intentions in the world. Do you limit yourself to the clouds? Have you begun to form life to dwell on this planet?

((OOC: That would be fine @ Falcon.

Though, I might be slow on updates, I'm thinking of taking a break from the game.))

A few days back, I got OFFICIAL PERMISSION from the almighty Raxy herself to post something to tide people over as an intermission (because a single still image totally counts as an intermission that'll tide people over for X number of weeks), so cue some wonderful elevator music in your head!

Is it playing? Catchy, right? Nice and relaxing, too.

Yeah, that's pretty smooth, ooh, got some jazz going in there even, it's nice.

Okay, I think we're about ready.













ENJOY, THE WRITH.

I was listening to a Lets Play of Elevator: Source when I read this post. I literally heard elevator music in my head.

Yeah, I'm afraid.

Interest check:

Thinking of reviving this game except I want to note a few thing:

1. The thread will now have the same rules as Game 2.

2. The player list is going to be restarted. You will have the choice to use your old god or to abandoned them and create a new god. If you want to make the narrative cohesive with Game 2, that's fine, there will be leeway for that.

3. There will be slower updates. I'm considering only updating when every currently listed player has posted.

4. No Alt accounts will be allowed in any capacity.

5. Consider this a fresh start using the same world. Any 'plans' you had won't be able to be continued with how I will be beginning things.

6. Remember, this is a game of chance that is largely determined by random dice rolls and other player's actions. There is a very large chance things will not go your way.

I'd just like to see a show of hands for who would be okay with this. Along with any suggestions or corrections in mind. If anything needs clarification, feel free to ask.

I'm okay with this, though I think if I play again I'm gonna try being a little simpler in my concepts for time reasons.

I was interested ever since the last game ended. Because other people lost it. Interest.

Now that I know what mistakes to avoid this time around, this game will be 500% more legit.

Ok, that seems like enough for a decent start. Others could join in mid game if they'd like.

Are you guys going to want a fresh start with a new god or to play the same one? I know this doesn't matter at all 'mechanically' but I figured I would present the option since that might help with your new outlooks on how you want to play and such?

I'd definitely keep !#%$, personally, because he's just too good. Whether or not I keep any kind of story elements from him like I did the second time around, depends, all of that's been incredibly impromptu, so I probably wouldn't at the start, but might if I see the opportunity later down the line.

I'm thinking of keeping Zerato, because I can't think of anything better to do.

Any estimate on when it's going to start?

Ah, sorry, I've been a bit distracted. I should actually look into doing that

Oh man, I assumed this was dead forever. Now I'll have to actually look forward to it again.

And I'll never ever forgive you if it doesn't happen.
