    Default Apotheosis: Rumblers Become a Pantheon

    The Plot Gods are creating a new fantasy/D&D-based universe, and they have twenty (20) still available slots for a pantheon of deities. Already parceled out are the roles of Sky Father and Earth Mother, to be filled by two ancient entities.

    The other twenty positions will be filled by whichever Rumblers care to claim them. Each Rumbler may claim one Sphere of Influence, first come first serve. So if, for example, War is claimed by a previous poster, you’ve got to choose a different Sphere.

    • Sky Father — Heavens, Law, Creation, Storms, Lightning — Filled.
    • Earth Mother — Earth, Nature, Marriage, Childbirth — Filled.

    Other than Sky Father and Earth Mother, it’s assumed all deities basically exist in rough parity with one another, with no Sphere being more powerful than any other. Each deity has supremacy in their Sphere, so you can always defend and/or offend against another deity. Sky Father has absolute authority to settle disputes, if it comes to that, or just kick everyone’s asses.

    Choose your Sphere of Influence:

    • Agriculture — Food, Banquets, Harvests, Famine, Honeybees, Animal Domestication;
    • Art — Sculpture, Poetry, Crafts, Inspiration, Creativity, Drama, Storytelling, Music, Bards;
    • Death — Underworld, Ghosts, Omens;
    • Dragons — Serpents, Renewal, Rebirth, Primal Chaos;

    • Evil — Darkness, Murder, Assassins, Corruption, Monsters;
    • Fate — Weaving, Spiders, Venom, Destiny;
    • Forge — Artificing, Metallurgy, Weaponsmithing, Fire, Volcanoes;
    • Hunting — Archery, Horses, Forests, Wilderness;

    • Light — Reason, Order, Sun, Logic, Justice, Revenge;
    • Love — Beauty, Sex, Courtship, Etiquette, Pleasure;
    • Magic — Sorcery, Prophesy, Moon, Night, Secrets;
    • Medicine — Healing, Health, Purification, Absolution, Ancestry, Disease, Poisons, Potions;

    • Sea — Ships, Sailors, Sleep, Dreams, Water, Weather, Tides, Oceans, Rivers, Lakes;
    • Strength — Wrestling, Stamina, Durability, Mountains, Athletics;
    • Travel — Speed, Communication, Messages, Diplomacy;
    • Trickster — Thievery, Disguise, Stealth, Humor, Cunning, Deceit;

    • War — Dueling, Strategy, Tactics, Excellence, Combat, Chess;
    • Wealth — Business, Economics, Trading, Homes, Luck, Fortune;
    • Wine — Revelry, Drink, Vineyards, Chaos, Dance;
    • Wisdom — Knowledge, Architecture, Mathematics, Literacy, Balance;

    As you’re now a deity, you can bring a small retinue with you to heaven, a handful of mortal friends and family (even if they’re deceased; that’s not a problem for the Plot Gods). They become immortal cupbearers in your service, but not gods themselves.

    If you don’t want a spot, the Plot Gods give you a Ring of Three Wishes and leave you alone.

    I nominate Sharp for Wisdom!

    Cant decide if Cthulhu is better suited for Wine or Trickster.

    There's flash of light, and you're transported to the new universe and transfigured.

    Sky Father and Earth Mother meet you at the gates of heaven.

    Those may be very appropriate choices, but the Plot Gods aren't taking nominations. You have to tell them which available Sphere of Influence you, yourself, desire.

    Or claim a Ring of Three Wishes and remain mortal.

    There are still nineteen Spheres left...

    Honor prevents me from making a choice for myself until the thread has been up a while, so I'll wait for others and then choose from among the leftovers.

    Dang. I might go with 3 Wishes in that case.

    The Plot Gods give you your magic ring and leave you alone, as promised.

    A full three wishes, according to 3.5e D&D standards.

    Oh, Death, Hunting or War? Each one works so well with aspects of the MunchKING's Overpoweredness…

    Ah well, might as well be predictable. War me up! I've got a Masamune, Yoshitsuna, and a bad attitude to inflict on some mortals!
    The MunchKING is Back! And he is AWSOME!

    Your world goes all white as you're transported to the new universe and transfigured to godhood.

    Sky Father and Earth Mother welcome you, and you assume your place in the Pantheon:

    • Art — Lord Nschornhorst
    • War — Lord MunchKING

    Yes, you are.

    "Welcome to heaven, Cthulhu_of_R'lyeh, god of Wine, Lord of the Dance," says Sky Father. "It could not be heaven without the gift of grapes. And I don't mean raisins."

    Our Rumbler's Pantheon:

    • Art — Lord Nschornhorst
    • War — Lord MunchKING
    • Wine — Lord Cthulhu_of_R'lyeh

    I'll be the random Asgardian nobody from Agents of SHIELD who went to Earth and became a professor.

    What?



    There are seventeen Spheres of Influence still available. You can choose one and join the Pantheon in the new universe, or remain a mortal here on Earth and get the consolation prize of a Ring of Three Wishes.

    Once in the new universe you can't go back to this one as a god.

    I was only joking, mate.

    I'm honestly torn between God of Wine and the Ring of Three Wishes. I'm leaning slightly towards the wishes.

    Art, War and Wine are already taken.

    Seventeen others still left.
