If people are new to this, perhaps its best to just team up in-game to avoid fraticide. :)

That's fine with me (and I agree about it being safest and less annoying for people new to the game), but this has to be settled before we can send in our pretenders.

Also, someone will have to be appointed king (or appoint themselves  :D ), or whatever the terminology is, because that also makes a difference in what category of pretender is designed: the king has to tell the game he's setting up that kind of pretender, and the disciples have to tell the game they're setting up disciple pretenders.


....um, also, if you're like me (and I know I am), you may have no idea what distinctions are involved in being a disciple and being a king-or-whatever-it's-called. AM I GOING TO HAVE TO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS ABOUT THIS?!?

Yes of course.  :arr: There is no substitute for RTFM. Well... there is, but I expect everyone to at least WTFYT .

Indeed; Watch The F*cking YouTubes.

Votes are open for being the real God instead of a puny Disciple. You may vote for yourself.

I vote for ME!

This is going to end up like that Pirate King voting scene in PotC3, isn't it? "I vote for her."  ;D

Well, if people lost their tongue I'll just roll dice and get going.

Speaking of RTFM...Apologies, I've been in the middle of building my new box and just realized that Win 7 does not play nice with NVMe drives.

Apologies for the slackness, I think I rolled death +5 in the Christmas stakes. Anyway I should shortly  be back to having a functioning brain but in the meantime I'll take Ulm (if free) on the basis of its not Ermor and I notice a big section on how to play it well in the manual. Thus well informed I will be able to decide that I know better and do something totally different.

As to Lord I'll pass and vote for whoever tops the poll thus increasing their majority and securing myself first dibs on the kickbacks.

Well, I've rolled up a disciple, but I don't have a game name to send him to!  :buck2:

Question - does this mean we need to roll a disciple and not a pretender god?

Thanks, my bad.

In that case, I'd like to go with Vanheim.
