The God Descends 
15th-Sep-2004 03:57 pm
So, here's the deal .. In my adventure that I'm getting ready to start, I'm wanting to have an evil god who descends to Earth and takes human shape as an amusing fat man. This leaves me with a conundrum ... How could I go about this? I want him to interact with the characters and then turn on them eventually, revealing himself and such, so I want him to be able to change form. My local hobby shop guy recommended checking out the Deities & Demigods book because it lists avatars in it, but, lo and behold, that's the only book I don't own.

So, any info?

Take this with a grain of salt and a laugh, but season 3 of the Buffy the Vampire slayer features a character named "the mayor" who is in a process called "the ascention". In it he seems to be a good guy, but as the "party" goes along, they start to notice more and more things going wrong and seeming creepy, but this guy kisses babies and gives people money, and goes on tv to promote right living and prosecutes murderers etc. No one knows until the end that something is wrong, and even then they have a hard time dicovering what is actually going on. Rent it and watch a couple choice episodes to get some idea of this kind of thing.

Oodles of info, actually.

Deities & Demigods (and its sister FR book) is a good resource for very, very, VERY powrerful deities. - if you're not afraid of full-page stat blocks, that is.

You could also go look up the Immortal's Handbook (go to the house rules thread on ENworld.org).

Or, if you're willing to try something different, I've got a deity system that's intended to be SIMPLE to add to a character that's just begging for a good playtest.

I'll all about playtesting. Hit me up on AIM/Yahoo (iamcalledcash) or ICQ (313465467).

He sounds mostly like a plot device, assign whatever stats you need. He is a god after all, so don't be too concerned about making him follow any set rules. He of all NPCs should be the least bound by them after all.
