Why indeed must 'God' be a noun? Why not a verb - the most active and dynamic of all.

Mary Daly




The Hook

Have you ever wanted to participate in a roleplay where universes die almost constantly because their gods accidentally turned the thermostat down just a little too hard? Where minor arguments are settled through reality breaking bitch slaps, and where weapons of multiversal destruction are made just to stop the local big tiddy destruction goddess from stepping on you? Even though, deep down, you actually like it but pretend not to just to avoid being called a disease riddled foot fetishist by your fellow cosmic beings?

Then Ultima is the roleplay for you!

Based somewhat loosely upon a CYOA, which you can find here, this roleplay will center around a group of Ultimate Gods who have found themselves persuaded by a cosmic entity known only as the Initiator to help it build a multiverse. These beings come from many walks of life, and possess many different powers to boot, both of which are completely up to the players to decide just like the fate of the fledgling multiverse itself.

So, will you make a reality just to destroy it? Divvy it up amongst yourselves and play a grand game of celestial politics? Or perhaps leave the project entirely never to be seen again?

The choice is yours.

Expectations

I'm looking for a group of 12 players, no more than that as we'll run out of Aspects to use, to play various gods of varying domains. Much like other god RPs. The general tone and theme of this will be rather relaxed, though I must ask for some effort grammar, spelling, and quality wise. So the standard casual 2-3 paragraph length and such. As for your goals, initially you'll be building a multiverse from the ground up, though you don't need to write out every minute detail of such creation. Timeskips can and most likely will happen. Other than that, do pretty much what you like, up to banding together to kill the Initiator for being the shitty absent godfather it is...

If you can figure out how of course.

As for posting schedule, it won't be too strict, but if you cannot find time to participate please let me and any players you might be interacting with know. That way we can hopefully plan and write a satisfactory exit for your character, and ensure that no one ends up stuck.

Finally, I want you to at least try and describe the powers you have and how they function, as one person's regeneration can be vastly different from another's and vice versa.

Other than that, know that no matter how powerful they may be, even gods may die.

Please note that I am still working on finishing the big dick pile of material that is the OOC, though when it is done I will let you all know, assuming this gets much interest to begin with.

It sounds like an interesting concept.

My idea is basically "Change" or "Chaos" or "Entropy" or "Metamorphosis"

A God who likes to interfere in the plans of mortals and his fellow Gods alike. Sometimes feared or hated for disrupting worlds that are going the way a certain group likes, sometimes worshipped for disrupting worlds that were going horribly for other groups.

Destruction or even freedom might be your domain then.

Also as a quick correction, I need twelve players, not eight max. There's twelve Aspects to choose, I miscounted.

As a brief update much of the lore is pretty much done, at least I think, and that just leaves the powers, Aspect or otherwise, along with divine forms to write out before the OOC can officially go up. I might not include the drawbacks section for now, but if enough people want it in then I can always add it in later.

EDIT: Added more lore that I almost missed regarding other forms of cosmic entities. Will probably finish the rest tomorrow since I'm getting rather exhausted.

Tentative interest. Will wait see the finished OOC before giving a yay or nay :)

I will be keeping an eye on this one. There are some concepts that I might want to try out. But no guarantees.

But basically I am thinking a god of selfishness. But like not the kind that makes you rob orphans to buy icecream. But the sort of selfish that drives people to be honorable and just but out of selfish reasons. A sort of god of evolutionary greed if you will. Like every single follower of mine only follows me because he has something to gain from doing so. And I only issue them boons because I have a use from them. So like an evil god of contracts I guess.

Very much work in progress though and again, no guarantees it will pan out.

Understood, and no worries. Some ideas pan out, others don't.

Tentative interest if it's still open, unsure what I'd play as there are multiple ideas to narrow down.

It is indeed still open. And that is entirely understandable.

I'm unsure how to proceed. I'm thinking of making a god of mind, but if I do, will I have to wait for the current one to disappear?

Not necessarily, as preferably I want as many gods there when the multiverse starts as possible, since the Initiator did convince you all to follow him and build this place. Making one after he leaves is simply something I'll allow.

Also him being a god of any Aspect is kind of not relevant in the long run, since he's disappearing for reasons unknown and leaving you all to your own devices, I just wanted to make sure he wasn't broken design wise. Avoiding the whole GM character is the most powerful thing and all, because if he does show up again and you guys actually want to kill him, I actually want it to be possible.

After reading the entire thing you wrote in OOC I'll have to inform you that sadly I am out. Put simply you did a very good job at describing exactly what sort of god you want. And that's basically the elemental aspect (light, darkness, chaos etc.) type. And I personally just don't find anything fun or interesting to explore in that. So rather than trying to shove a square peg into a round hole with all the strength of a god I have chosen to not join.

I wish you all a good game.
