    Rock on.

    Particularly like the idea of tipping mortals over the edge if going a bit heavy-handed. How broad is the ability to influence? Primarily through visions, changing the weather etc? and then secondarily through emissaries and agents? Or limited to the focal characters alone or wider reaching (For example, causing an entire village to go insane to protect an artefact hidden there)?

    How the Gods interact with these characters are entirely dependent on the nature of these Gods, determined when players fill up a sign up form. Some Gods will be able to manifest, or even approach and aid characters physically, while others primarily relies on visions. Others may manipulate the laws of nature like weather, etc.

    Probably no minions.

    Obviously, interacting directly would strain the characters' sanity more. Characters may range from 2 to as many as 9. If all are killed or driven insane, the Act ends in failure for the players.

    sounds interesting

    When you get a job you don't complete your challenge, when you don't complete your challenge you get punished.

    Did a little update, expanding my ideas in the opening post. There's a tentative sign up form and some of the basic concepts fleshed out a bit.

    Tentative sign up:

    Name: Vhyryx
    Background: Dabbling with the minds of men has become more and more entertaining over the millennia. Watching them crumble and disintegrate is now the only joy Vhyryx knows. It is so enjoyable, in fact, that he denies them even the sanctuary of insanity. And he is loathe to let this pleasure go.
    Traits: malevolent will, Into the Heart of Madness, Abyss.

    Not sure if horrible idea or terrible idea....

    Also not sure if I want my heart broken in a PoTG for a fourth time in a row....

    Still intrigued though!

    Stress: 1
    Divinity: 1
    Influence: 2

    Traits: Shadow of Divinity, False Sun Over Trinity, The Fall.

    Just a note to all that I'm taking my time with this, building on the rules and traits and other what have yous at leisure. I will announce updates, but always be ready to edit your signups or change your minds regarding your interest, and ask questions!

    Added another small update. The Traits are starting to form a pattern, which I would rename and shape into Nature, Motivation, and Will, respectively. This would allow you to define your character more thoroughly. Still much to do.

    @Psychedelic Lictor @Thatfatguy @theonelogician @Solus

    I think I've covered the bases, now I need to test run to see if the game actually works right. You guys want to participate in a closed test game? Test game thread will probably be here in Discussions section instead of Active Games.
