Also a huge shoutout to everyone else who has continued to show their support over the years. Without you there would be no Divinus!




Prologue


She would sow the first seed for a nascent world to be born; summoning earth for the lands, water for the seas, wind for the skies, and fire for the life that would blossom - the four elements proceeded to merge into a single shape that would be the foundation of further creation. The world that was her conjured canvas stayed blank, waiting in a state of emptiness for the hands of the artists that would come in due time. She must call to them now.

The heavenly voice of the red goddess echoed across the infinite void, resonating with otherworldly power and divine absolution. “I am Anath Homura! Come forth to me, and become the cosmic cultivators and architects of a new realm! Join my pantheon, and become Divine! Shape the sturdy land, shift the singing sea, sculpt the soaring sky, rewrite reality in accordance with your visions!”

The barren orb to be a new world that she had created still silently hung in the center of the celebration, like an immense heart that had yet to begin beating with the hum of life. It would be the source of so much more; clever civilizations and widespread wilderness, creatures of all shapes and sizes, and a multitude of imagination manifesting such wondrous sights that would inspire those that would be witness to it all.

Existence swirled with revelry as it revealed itself to the unknown, and allowed outsiders to enter. The newcomers were free to claim their mantles as deities among the burgeoning pantheon - to become the gods and goddesses of this world.



Synopsis


This is a story describing the Divine and their great acts of creation; the unfolding history of the cosmos as a new pantheon of gods and goddesses seek to express their will upon the known world and its numerous denizens. This is Divinus...

The sacred seed of a nascent world shall be sown, and Anath calls out to those that would become its cultivators and architects - to those that would become Divine. These new deities originating from both near and from afar shall shape reality in accordance to their desires with the cosmic might that they possess. Anath intends to recede into her realm, and has granted free reign to those that would join the pantheon and enact their vision upon the world...

These deities may shift the landscape, sculpt the seas, stain the skies, beget a myriad of flora, fauna, spirits and elementals, both the beastial and the civilized. These deities may craft potent relics and command powerful armies, or conjure horrific monstrosities fought by sanctioned heroes seeking glory as they defend the dreams and passions of the Divine. There is no end to the tales that will be told when the world is woven into existence...

The Divine adhere to many rules, but do not be daunted. This RP is about weaving fantastical stories, and exploring a new world wherein gods and goddesses walk among mortals and rewrite reality. All of the rules are for the sake of cohesive writing and fair play, so have fun!



Mechanics




















General Rules and Regulations

  • The Golden Rule--Do not godmod/metagame/powerplay. It’s ironic because this is an RP with actual gods as characters; however, there are definitely limits as to the power level of our gods. We’re trying to make a collaborative story rather than host a game meant to be ‘won,’ so please keep that in mind as you write.
  • The Rule of Fair Warning--Before significantly influencing someone else’s creations, especially if it is going to be in a destructive way, give them some fair warning OOC so that potential objections can be made ahead of time and plans can be shifted. Ideally conflicts between two gods that lead to destruction or harm of one god or its possessions will be written with the consent of both players, but if you think that somebody is being unreasonable us GMs can intervene.
  • The Superior Samaritan Rule--Somewhere in every post, please attach a hider box containing a short summary of the post’s actions, including how Might has been expended in the post if applicable. As Divinus RPs have traditionally had some massive posts, this helps greatly when trying to keep track of all that’s been going on and when trying to make sure you didn’t miss any important plot point within some massive post. That being said, please do still try to read all IC posts and not just the summaries.
    Example: Your summary should convey the bare minimum of which characters were involved, what major plot points were covered, and which (if any) other peoples' characters you're initiating some sort of action with, and how MP, AP, Spirit, and Prestige was spent.
  • Leave of Absence--Please give us forewarning on the OOC if circumstances dictate that you will become inactive in the RP for a time. I’m sure we’ve all seen the phenomena of people simply vanishing; it’s frustrating and leaves work where the others have to pick up the narrative pieces. Failure to follow this rule can potentially lead to your god being deposed IC; the Cosmos works in mysterious ways.
  • Sexual Content--Please keep it PG-13. Fade to black, and always remember, the Guild Rules come first and foremost.

    The above commandments are most important. Almost every other conduct is to fall under the domain of common sense and the RPGuild rules, with the understanding that our goal is to collaboratively create cool narratives. Be considerate to one another and facilitate storytelling. If there are any concerns or clarifications required, the GMs are always happy to help.




Character Creation


As you consider ideas for your character and grapple with what you want to do, We would encourage you to first focus upon what sort of Aspect you want to have, and then use that as a foundation to construct a god that makes sense given that dimension.

Beyond the concept for your character, you should also have an idea of what you want your god to do, how your god might change or progress, how they will contribute to the story and how they will interact with other players.

Note: Returning characters from previous iterations is permitted, but that character does not possess any of their prior powers or possessions, and abides by the new system. When writing a returning character, please remember to not make it so it is required to read the previous iterations to understand them.

Before posting in the IC, your character must be reviewed and approved by the GMs. Afterwards, please post a copy of your character sheet in the Characters tab section for easy reference.

An OOC note to the GMs – I’m not trying to get a free artifact out of his suit of armor and will pay 5 MP for it in my first post, I just don’t want to think up and then describe whatever form he takes for the one or two paragraphs before that happens.

@Dark Cloud

I'm aware that you don't plan on joining the Discord server. You'll be missing out on a massive percentage of the conversations regarding the RP and communication overall will be much slower, but if that doesn't discourage you, then feel free to submit a CS!
