Meta-Deity Guide

The goal of this chapter is to go from blank slate to a fully functional Deities world. Since much of this detail will remain hidden from players at the beginning of the game, this chapter is geared almost exclusively toward Meta-Deities. Curious players are encouraged to read if they like but are not the focal audience.

Theme

Before you can sit down and design a game world, you and your players should discuss several details of the game's general style, including theme. Do you want to build legends of gods like those from human mythology? Or do you want to tell a more human tale of how a group of average Joes respond to godhood? The theme of your game determines how divine powers and godly actions manifest in your game world.

Game Of Legends

A game emphasizing the creation of legends has a world where every divine action ripples through the cosmos.
