Tuesday Toot – G+ is
closing closed. When it was alive things happened. Things unexpected. Great things. Whilst my creative output is only modest, I thought I’d hold something up into the living light, something that came about purely because G+ existed … This is a toot to G+. (published a day early this time …)
This Widget was put up on G+ and automates the process I submitted to ‘& Magazine’.
The idea is that maybe a PC wants to make a plea for divine intervention … when desperate. This widget is meant to enable that process.
But, in this system, for there to be even a chance for a deity to hear you, the PCs are really going to have to make a sacrifice, a level sacrifice (so it’s going to hurt). Also, there is a chance that if the PC goes ‘chips all in’, the deity could take the PC soul as payment. What can I say, trifle with the Gods at your peril.
And, even if your deity hears you, are they going to act, and act in your favour?
Well, in this system that depends on the nature of the deity (a chaotic good deity might be a helpful sort, but what of Chaotic Neutral or even true Neutral deity?) and what you want from them. Is your request inline with their ‘legal ethos’ (i.e. lawful, neutral, chaotic) and their spiritual ethos (i.e. good, neutral, evil). If inline with those ethoses, the chance of success is greater.
The Excel widget does the maths … and gives a verdict.
This widget is based on ‘& magazine’ issued 14; pages 35-40; “Making the ‘God Call’”. Link: http://www.and-mag.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/and-mag-i14-p2.pdf
