I have a game of Godbound going on currently called I Bless the Rains Down In Eiphoria that's lost two players and I'm looking for at least one more. Is anyone interested?

What's it like and what sort of Godbound would fit well?
All Words are allowed, including everything from the Lexicon of the Throne. Concept Words may be taken with an appropriate concept, obviously. Any Low Magic may be taken as well, they all exist in this realm in one form or another, as does theurgy.

Long long ago, longer now than it seems, the world of Eiphoria was whole and unmarred. When the Makers laid the foundation for it, they protected Eiphoria with a series of great Dolmen Gates scattered across the lands -- 45 of them, each wrought of soul and stone and metal and gems -- marked with a True Rune that encapsulated and represented the very existence of the force they guarded. All was well, for the Balance was kept.

And then, ruin descended upon Eiphoria.

Summoned forth by vile cultists wielding the highest of magics, the ancient old ones, the Hours, took notice of the world from their strange and antithetical realm... and sought to either control or destroy it.

The Gate of Madness, the fuel for the warped minds of the cultists, shattered first, destroyed by searching tendrils from beyond time and space. The other Dolmen Gates soon followed, and so the Cataclysm occurred.

But we fought back. Pierced by sword and shell and great magitek, the Hours and their endless minions were routed after three thousand years of war. But what remained of Eiphoria was nothing like it was. Our golden age of sun had fallen, leaving only an age of darkness in its wake.

In time, truth became legend, legend became myth. And the conflict was all but forgotten. Until now. The Hours are returning, sending their Knows and Longs and Names back into the world to herald their return, to finish what they began.

But we are not bereft of our own defenses. With their return comes the rise of the Eikons, those who for reasons both known and unknown bear the True Runes of the Dolmen Gates upon their bodies, and command those ancient powers. They are our best, last, and only hope against the tides of terror turned against us...


Eiphoria is a single great circular continent, surrounded completely by a vast indigo ocean-like river known as Ouroboros -- beyond the edge of the water is the endless Void. There are nine nations set upon the remaining landscape, one in the center and then one in each of the eight directions.

Eiphoria knows no gods, but still direct prayers to the two mightiest existences they are aware of: the blue sun, Sorcen, and the great Rains. Rulership is often but not always determined by those blessed with the supposed lineage of Sorcen, a blue tinge to one's skin that is in fact a rare health condition. The silver Rains have supplied Eiphoria with necessary water, and through their strange magics also ward off the Hours and their minions when they fall.

The Nine Nations are as follows:
  • Solarium, the Empire of the Sun. The center nation and blessed with the most radiance, ruled by Empress Corona XXI.
  • Rachnera, the Undead Scar. A blighted and benighted realm filled with the dead and ruled by the undead, the most prominent being Malkoran, King of Crypts.
  • Florascent, the Tangled Jungle.
  • Meroune, the Domes of Coral and Salt.
  • Mabriga, the Frozen Cliffs.
  • Lumina, the Glowing Clouds.
  • Tetra, the Realms Below.
  • Ragnaros, the Molten Plateau.
  • Illustria, the Lands of Ruin Ethereal.
All across Eiphoria are the ruins of the Dolmen Gates, commonly known as Cairn Cores. Each contains possible treasure and more importantly, Fragments of the former Gates. But they are places twisted and haunted, blasted and devastated. Few have journeyed to them, fewer have returned.

I've played a little Godbound so I would be interested. Do you have a minimum posting requirement as I am not always able to post daily.

I'm interested based purely on what I've heard about Godbound, but I'm not sure if I can squeeze in another game responsibly, and I won't be able to bbuy the book until Monday. Grr

Hope it goes well

Yeah I'm pretty sure I am; I just need to get a chance to read the threads a bit to see what areas aren't covered. Debating between some sort of jungle goddess or just going with a full on Liliana of the veil ripoff.

Normal char gen I assume?

Indeed.
