21st of May - The Age of Creation
We will start on saturday 21st of may. The first age will be the age of creation and will last until may 30th.
During this Age any creative action you take will succeed, any other action will need to be voted upon. Creations can include worlds, realms, races, avatars of your god, monsters, animals, plants, mountains, rivers, etc. Other actions, like declaring war or the outright destruction of something needs to be voted on like all other god actions. There will be different ages throughout the game and during each age certain actions will always succeed or have a higher chance of succeeding.
Becoming a God
The first thing you need to do to play is to make a post claiming your godhood. Make sure to put [Claim] in the post title, followed by your god's name. The body of the post should then contain your god's domain. In this, think of greek mythology; there was a god of the sea, dead, love, war, etc. You can be as specific or broad with your domain as you like. This does not limit your actions, but should be a good guide line. (e.g. if you are a god of the sea, you are not forbidden to come onto land or start a tribe in the desert, but you may want to try to stick with the 'sea' theme as much as possible - like buildings made of coral.) Your first post can include a bit of fluff about your god if you like, but claiming a domain is all that needs to be said. As a god you get to choose 3 specialties.
When choosing a God think about how you want to shape the Universe. Create a Universe in your Image. It's a good idea to choose domains that are a personal passion to you. The domains of a god is center in achieving their vision.
Template for a Claim
Claim | Name

Domains | 1st
If you're not feeling all that holy you do not have to claim a God. In the Game there's also Demigods, Races and Heroes. You can claim these in a similar fashion. Gods start of as the strongest, near the end of the game Races, Heroes and Demigods will have equaled or exceeded the gods in power.
When a character you claimed is destroyed or when you want to explore a different character in the universe you can make a new Claim at the Sabbat. You can only claim a single god, but you can become as many different races, heroes and demigods as you like. Uncontrolled races and demigods can be used in stories by all players, these will be governed by the collective.
