Behold: my GMPC.

Name: Geia
Alternate Name(s): Ertha, Planos
Title(s): Mother Nature, Guardian of Earth, Life’s Boon
Appearance: Geia appears as a Caucasian female rabbit-person roughly 192cm tall, and weighs roughly 57kg. Her only piece of clothing is a fluid white robe that runs down to her feet, and generally hides her otherwise modest curves. Her hair and eyes are, respectively, silver and pale green, and, whilst appearing as a rabbit-person, she also displays a pair of white rabbit ears and a similarly coloured tail from the same animal.
Personality:
Base: Kind, and very inclined towards preserving the planet in general, but occasionally somewhat sarcastic or blunt.
Perceived: Peace-loving, and hence very unwilling to fight with anything unless an area of the planet is at stake. Additionally, prefers areas where nature has been preserved rather than urbanised locations; thus, she is usually said to be found in one of many forests or glades around the planet.
Overall: A nature lover, and normally a pacifist, unless an area of natural beauty and/or the entire planet is threatened. Also very kind towards her followers and most beings in general, albeit in an occasionally indirect manner; despite this, worship of her is often restricted to beings that can relate to her on a direct basis, e.g. Nature Golems, and those who meet her in person may be put off when she doesn’t act as nicely as they expect her to.
Focus: Nature – Basically, most natural things that you can find in the natural world can also be found in Geia’s arsenal of pacifism. This includes trees, mountains, animals… but yes.
Portfolio: Kindness, fertility, growth, birth, life cycles.
Backstory: Geia was originally formed around fifteen thousand years ago, when a large gathering of elvish folk prayed for a deity who could keep their forest from being destroyed by a local demon horde. However, her original purpose was that as a deity of vengeance, such that she would gladly annihilate anyone who dared to harm the planet’s natural areas. Since that time, her worshipers – and by proxy, herself – have mellowed out to a great extent, particularly in the last millennium or so, leaving her as a relatively very kind and pacifistic deity, although her actions in the time before that have left people uncertain as to how truthful she is about this. That being said, she is still a relatively powerful deity on account of her focus, and few want to risk the possibility that she’ll revert to her previous, vengeful self; subsequently, offerings are made to her quite regularly by many races, but her actual religious following is relatively small.

And of course, because I’m the GM, I automatically approve my own sign, so…

Draven is plagiarized. I believe there is a League of Legends champion with the same name, who has dual throwing axes. (The brother of the more well-known Darius)

Name:Geerspiel
Alternate Name(s):Gearspell
Title(s):The One Who Laughs Forever, the Dancing Jester, the Entangler of Madness
Appearance:Geerspiel has chalky white skin and blank white eyes. His lips are stick-thin and slant at impossible angles. He wears a black suit with purple grid lines running through it.Shreds of straitjacket and bandages are wrapped around his long, flexible hands.
Personality:

Base:Geerspiel is essentially happy-go-lucky, always itching to find amusement in things and laughing and smiling, always. Occasionally, he shows moments of startling viciousness, then an instant and sharp back to his usual smiling self.
Perceived:Being the deity of laughter and insanity, Geerspiel is often considered a mixed-bag deity. He is considered to be vicious and violent more than harmlessly crazy. Though those seeking employment as a court jester and those with insane family members may say a quick prayer to him, usually people tend to avoid him like other ill omened deities.
Overall:Geerspiel is a two-sided deity. He has two main personalities:that of a harmless, laughing man and that of a bloodthirsty lunatic. He switches between them at will, depending on which personality would handle the situation best.
Focus:Mindforce. By infecting a person with insanity(or by simply identifying one struck with natural insanity), he has a “window” into that person’s mind(he can only enter the minds of insane people). While inside the mind, he can leech out their mental power until they become dried, useless husks of what they once were. Note that Geerspiel doesn’t have to dedicate time to do this; his power naturally sends tendrils of energy to suck out mindforce. This means that he’s constantly gaining energy and power(just like every other deity).
Portfolio:Laughter, Insanity, Fear
Backstory:Geerspiel was first created by the Inz’ har tribe of monkey-men, which has since vanished. The Inz’ har lands were conquered and their people were taken for slaves by humans. Some of the slaves passed on the idea of Geerspiel to the humans, though his name was mistaken for “Gearspell”, which is what some call him. This is rather inaccurate, because he has nothing to do with mechanical objects nor spells. Geerspiel actually meant “The Dancing Jester” in the language of the Inz’ har.
Since he was modernized by the humans, he constantly travels the dimensions looking for amusement. He tends to interfere in human affairs much more than any other deity, because he finds them just as interesting as deities, an outspoken opinion.
Geerspiel defends himself by attacking the opponent mentally. His combat strategy is as follows:first, infect the opponent with insanity. The insanity is minor and will not have any effect on the combat, but it’s crucial as it allows Geerspiel to hop into the opponents mind and take control of it(or at least deal some damage to it if it’s another deity). Once controlled or damaged, he then produces a jester’s hat and shakes it, ringing the enchanted bells stitched onto it. The magical sonic waves will usually knock out or outright kill an opponent. The best part is that all this can be accomplished in under five seconds, not giving the opponent time to recover.

BC said that brainwashing is a no-no, Helltank. Mind control is okay, but that’s more like just knocking the victim out then controlling its body like a puppet. Nothing that permanently changes how someone thinks or feels, at least not easily. And in the rules it says you can’t directly have “mind” or any part of it as a deity’s focus.

 
Flag Post

When I say “mind control”, I don’t actually mean you control the actions of a person. I mean you control the flow of mindforce within a person.

And as for the “no mind” thing, I’m not actually using mind as a focus. I’m using “mindforce”. Think of it as lifeforce, or blood.

Finally, his powers can’t do jack shit to deities; Geerspiel was not built was a combat character.

You’re assuming that is how the sapient creatures are able to think, which may or may not be true. BC never gave me a straight answer when I asked him to tell me the exact mechanism within sapient creatures that allow thought processes. Something like “mindforce” may or may not actually exist.

I could just say it exists, but only for Geerspiel. That is, mindforce does not exist to the rest of the world, but for Geerspiel it does and has a powerful effect on him when consumed.

This is just something I wanted to bring up that I noticed while skimming through all of these sign-ups.
“Andros, a mortal man turned god (focus is his own formerly mortal body)” This is a quote I dug out of EM’s backstory. It intrigues me because, as far as I’ve been told by the OP, that kind of god creation style is illegal in this game.

I’m not sure if you can have a focus that only exists because the deity makes it so. You’ll have to ask BC about that.

Except I’ve obtained BC’s permission to have that. The public version is that some centuries ago, Ergos Materia used her SCIENCE! to elevate Andros, an exceptionally powerful mortal human, to godhood. Apotheosis is possible in this setting, and I don’t think it should really be illegal. Andros is a bit weaker than the average PC-level deity anyways.

I’m pretty sure apotheosis is otherwise illegal without explicit permission. Furthermore, if simply weakening said deity brings more justification, then anything I do would, by that logic, be justified. Heck, I deliberately changed my “god” into a mortal animal for the sake of fairness, only for this kind of stuff to happen.

I did obtain explicit permission. A mortal becoming a god isn’t an unreasonable thing to ask for. If you wanted one, you could have easily, you know, asked BC.

Mindforce does not exist because I make it so. Mindforce exists only to me. Only through Geerspiel’s unique perception does mindforce exist. It is a physical manifestation or representation of the natural power present in your mind(if you want a more scientific answer, the electricity flowing through your brain).

 
Flag Post

Right, things seem to have gotten a bit awry. Time to clear things up.

B_S did obtain explicit permission for Andros’ apotheosis. However, such an event is excessively rare, and as a general rule, the typical PC deity shouldn’t be anything like that.

Mindforce does not exist. Period. Change Geerspiel’s focus, helltank.

…there doesn’t seem to be anything else that’s an issue at the moment. Tell me if I’ve missed anything.

I need Draven to get captured by an evil diety so that I can create someone else so if you read this then when I post what happens, dont suggest to rescue him, ok?
this is my better idea for a diety

Name: Frostix
Alternate Names: Jack Frost
Title: The cold one
Appearence: A human male with almost see-through skin and a cool suit
Personality
-Base: A kind diety with a respect for nature and the natural elements
-Perceived: His followers see him as a cold, uncaring god and almost never contact him
-Overall: A kind but sometimes indifferent diety, Frostix only helps those that he sees fit to
Focus: his focus is Ice
Portfolio: snow, cold
Backstory: Frostix was created in the ice-age of the year of 50,000, the coldest winter still known to this day but it is roumered that he never appears in hot weather

Well, crap, Geerspiel cannot exist without Mindforce. I refuse to play him without mindforce.

If this is the case, then I’ll draft up the idea for a new character tomorrow. I’ll also call him Geerspiel, but he’ll be the god of fear.

Name: Unknown, or U.N. Owen. Whichever’s preferable.
Alternate Name(s): Owen. [Which the deity is not pleased about.]
Titles: Nothing really apart from ‘God of Monsters’.
Appearance: Mostly formless. People often see what they want to see, or what they expect to see. If neither apply, the form taken is almost completely random. If desired, a specific form can be manifested, but apparently the deity’s true form is a closely guarded secret. Doesn’t stop people from guessing though, with guesses like a tattered, old, empty cloak, a Nue, or possibly just even a little girl. Any of these forms seem equally likely, but it seems the God of Monsters is not willing to divulge its true form.
Personality:
Base: Mostly pretty whimsical and carefree to the point of seeming insane. Serious matters are taken seriously (though what is serious is apparently extremely arguable) and so is business (the above still applies). Apart from that, occasionally some sort of important beneficial action might be worth embarking on to the deity. The deity also possesses a great love of monsters, and an apparent malicious streak, since it has been known to interfere with individual mortal lives. However, the deity has claimed that the effects of its meddling have been positive-Those who were good became monsters and those otherwise deserved whatever occurred. This is of course, debatable.
Perceived: The deity is sometimes seen is incomprehensible by some followers, or at other times simple in its intents. Mostly the only thing that can be agreed upon is the deity’s love for monsters of all kinds, even occasionally the malicious ones. There are patterns, but given the deity’s possible insanity and tendency to act upon what is at least nearly always whim, it’s not like most people understand what is going on in the deity’s head. It doesn’t help that the deity itself meets very few of its followers within Earthworld personally and that the followers of the deity are a scattered bunch.
Overall: Since the deity’s following is mostly just monsters (those not of its own creation, I mean) it’s generally a benevolent patron deity, despite its own selfish tendencies.
Focus: Monsters.
Portfolio: Fear, Knowledge, Darkness.
Backstory: Despite being what is apparently an embodiment of evil, the God of Monsters was not created for necessarily evil purposes. Monsters were naturally hunters of humans in some cases and they were naturally hunted by humans in nearly all cases. Although humans were but a single species, they wielded immense power in comparison to many beings, and their deities only augmented this further. Monsters were tired of being killed by humans against what was known as the ‘scourge of the earth’ by some. As a result, the sapient monsters (which included humans treated as ‘monsters’) put faith into their future, and a deity was formed. The God of Monsters was well aware that it could do nothing against other deities, and at the time perhaps even had a fear of being hunted, as the monsters who formed it did. So the deity at least tried to get its followers to form some sort of truce with the humans, and retreated from their territories. While it was impossible to enforce such a truce upon all monsters, disorganised as they were, many of them (the sentient ones, at least) became an organised religion under their deity, and followed its lead in isolating themselves. The deity was mostly reclusive, occasionally popping out to gain new followers, ideas or simply to ‘deal’ with an individual mortal. To this day, the deity continues this behaviour, though has become notably less and less serious as time has worn on, to the point of seeming airheaded and unable to take things seriously.

[And hey, this signup might not actually suck! I’d be surprised if that was the case, though.]

Name: Luto
Alternate names: Lucky
Titles: Master of ceremonies at the Lucky Bastard casino.
Appearance: A man in a fancy white suit with a white fedora. He also wears a coin on a string around his neck and black dress shoes. Always seen with a smile on his face.
Personality: Base: Selfish and Greedy. whatever he does is for his own benefit.
Perceived: Helpful. Those that he appears to are always gifted with tremendous luck.
Overall: Luto is almost always willing to help people win casino games. He asks the people he helps for a quarter of their winnings and when he receives it he disappears without a trace. He doesn’t help anyone at the Lucky Bastard casino because He receives a substantial amount of money from it.
Focus: Gambling
Portfolio: Luck, Chance
Backstory: A man wearing a white suit once helped another man get rich through gambling. The now rich man turned to thank the man in the white suit but he was gone. The rich man thought that he must of been helped by a powerful god-like being but really the man in the suit just left the building. The rich man Built a casino with the money he made and also began worshiping the idea of the man in the white suit giving him a made up name and having a statue of the man in the white suit built in his casino. Luto eventually gained physical form thanks to worship from every person that ever won a game in the Lucky Bastard casino. The rich man saw Luto and, thinking he was the same man who helped him before, gave him access to everything the casino had to offer, Which was mostly gold. Luto liked how the gold shined and sparkled and thanked the rich man for it. The rich man has also named Luto the master of ceremonies at every event that has been held in the casino since his arrival.

I object to this. Ergos Materia’s “master”, as well as his servants, keep journals of their experiments, and Xinuriel does not have access to those. In fact, Ergos Materia should have long since figured out a special, magical way to record her writings so that they will not be automatically copied into anyone’s library, Xinuriel’s or otherwise; this special method has also been passed along to all of her followers and allies.

If this is a secret, pocket universal library, how would you know what is or isn’t in there? Unless, of course, EM happened to visit it. [Eyebrow raise]

Regardless of whether she knows or not, it should not be there, because I, as a player, object to it. Also, Ergos Materia has anticipated such a possibility, and made the appropriate precautions, some time during the past 50,000 years.
