Mortal Gods

Game NameMortal Gods
Game SystemDnD 5e
ThemeMystery-centred
FlavourRoleplay-focused
Plot SummaryYou were once a being of utmost power, one with hordes of worshippers and the ability to bring mountains to their foundations with but a touch. But now, you have woken up powerless. A commoner. A once-great entity shackled to a mortal shell, and no explanation as to why.

I try to maintain a good balance of the elements of D&D: combat, exploration and roleplay. This game will focus more on roleplay, but the other aspects will not be forgotten.

You play as a god. It can be your own, Homebrew god or it can be one provided in the handbooks. You start at Level 1.

Id like to stick to the main sourcebooks, but if you want you can request a variation. Religious classes are not allowed, which means none with patrons: Paladins, Clerics, Warlocks.

Dice will be decided by 27 point buy.

Applications close on the 4th of February.

Ill have 3-5 players.

Follow this template:
Name:
Race:
Class:
Alignment:
Domain (as in I am the god of ...):
Personality (include Ideals, bonds and flaws):
Legends (treat this as a backstory section, but also as more than an origin story. Your characters have been alive for thousands of years, theyre bound to get up to some antics):

Cooooool! I absolutely adore this idea. I'll definitely be getting an application in. It's been awhile since I've played, but I have a 5e campaign going on in meat space that's got me in the mood, but not enough to sate me!

I love this idea! Are there any restrictions to what alignment we play, or can we play someone who was an evil god?

I'll have an app in shortly

Application
left-aligned image
Name: Siegran

Race: Aasimar

Class: Ranger/Horizon Walker

Alignment: Neutral-Good
right-aligned image

Domain (as in “I am the god of ...”): Hunting, Bestial
Holy Symbol: Siegran's holy symbol is depicted as 4 animal heads stacked on each other; From top to bottom it was Rabbit, Wolf, Bear and Stag, with the antlers bordering the stack

Personality (include Ideals, bonds and flaws): Siegran respects all beasts that walk on the earth, swim in the oceans, and fly in the skies, even if he is hunting said beast. Beasts were created as a test for humanity and to improve their societies, whether its using their hides and claws to make a better civilization, to hunt for food, or to train to live within their sapient society. Siegran will often thank his prey after slaying them, which people may find weird, but he doesn't care what they think about his methods. He always sees the hunt as a chance for mortals to see if they have what it takes to conquer challenges that nature will throw at them. Siegran is known for being softly spoken, but full of adrenaline, excited for a chance to hunt down a new beast, or test his knowledge on an old target.

Legends: Siegran, though depicted as an Aasimar, was worshipped mostly by Elves, since his domains were connected to the forests. Though others followed his teachings, most saw Siegran as a fool for treating the monsters of the world as beings that deserved respect. His followers were devoted though, agreeing that the beasts deserved to be respected. Most of them were just doing what they were doing since their creation. Legend says that Siegran disagreed with the teachings of the god within the War Domain, thus a conflict occurred which caused a major earthquake that split a large forest straight in half, almost making a split big enough to be considered a 'Worldwound'. You won't find many followers of Siegran now adays but those who still do, stay dearly devoted to the Aasimar hunter.

This sounds amazing! Couple of quick questions : Firstly, curious as to what you're looking for in terms of the expected response time between posts? And then also, I've got experience playing in person but I'm relatively new to the scene here, would my application still be considered even though this would technically be my first game online?

There are no alignment restrictions. You can absolutely play an evil god if you want.

Like I said, I’d prefer the PHB, but if you request a suitable alternative, I won’t have much of a problem.

I’d like posts about once a day.

I would not have a problem with accepting new players.

Holy Symbol:

A beautiful flower (type of flower varied between followers and what knowledge they specialized in attaining) growing forth from within an outstretched hand.

Although, like truth, Fyedira as a goddess was capable of coming in many different forms, her most common was that of an elderly gnomish woman or, more rarely, that of a child gnome girl: after all, who fears what knowledge they let slip to the infirm or the infantile?

Name: Fyedira
Race: Gnome
Class: Mystic
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Domain(s): Knowledge, Truth
Personality:

 

Legends:

I will say that once per day is a bit extreme. Might i suggest once every three AT LEAST?

Application
right-aligned image
Asmodeus in a mortal body
Name: Asmodeus

Race: Dragonborn

Class: Rogue (Mastermind, pg. 46 XGE)

Alignment: Lawful Evil

Domain: Knowledge, Trickery

Personality: Asmodeus treats Good and Evil as two sides of the same coin. Evil is no higher on the moral scale than good. It's how you use these traits to change the world around you. What you do and how you interact with people don't matter so much as the overall effect you have on the world through the eons. This can sometimes cause him to put others he has given his word to work with in harms way. Now that he is a mortal, he wants to find a way back to godhood before someone usurps his throne. He fears Couatls for an unknown reason.

 


Legends: As the Lord of the Nine, Asmodeus commanded the Devils of the Nine Hells. He spent his time sending out devils to make deals with mortals in exchange for tolls to be determined upon the request. Most of the time this included the eternal soul of the deal maker. His following is small, but devote. They travel the world and speak to those that have fallen out of their gods favor, with the promise that Asmodeus will forgive all transgressions should they only pray to him. Any who do follow the path of The Cloven are greeted in the Fugue Plane by a devil, who will escort them to the Nine Hells as per the agreement. Many devil discuss rumors of overthrowing the Archdevil and taking his throne, thereby taking his power over the abyssal realm. Now that he has gone missing, these dangerous words spread all the faster.



QuestionsAre we starting at level one?
Sorry about that I must have gotten so excited for the idea of this game that I skipped right over it. It won't happen again.

Would it be okay if I left a lot of my Personality and Legends in secret?
It'd only be secret from the party, not from you.

I wanted to wait to type out the Personality and Legends until these question are answered, that way I can give a better description of my character.
Thank you for the answers, I hope my app is satisfactory

Once a day is good, but I won't try to enforce it. If once every three is all you can manage, it's fine.

I'd like to start the game just as they become mortal.

Level 1. I did specify that.

You remember a lot. You still have human mental capacity, so there might be a few things you forget, but you'll remember everything important.

Yeah, sure, that's fine.

Yeah, sure, that's fine. Secret from me as well, or just from other party members?

Do the PCs still look like their old selves (albeit much less impressive)? Will they have any starting equipment?
