    You know people just make stuff up and run with it. Get others on board and it turns into canon. Especially when awesome Divine get a whiff of it.

    Possibility of divine conflict is 90% of the reason I started Achaea.
    It was so great in the earlier days. Like, pre-Targossas and before.

    We had old Neraeos who was arguably one of the best godrole players in any MUD ever - who drove long, arching storylines of his own reckoning related to the Sea stuff, triton citystates, caspeid's scheming against each other, basically gave life to the ocean entirely on his own. Prophecy from denizens would drive storyline arcs and the like, so on.

    Divines screaming at each other over shouts was a relatively common occurrence, as were the Orders scrambling to fill whatever interests those spats would cause. It wasn't like this all the time, but it was definitely there, compared to the past 1-2 years where we've not really had much of the Divine contestation stuff that really brought Achaea alive except rather tantalisingly during events like the sargassum plague and the Black Wave stuff.

    I miss it. I really do. I get looked at with scorn for wanting to be spoonfed content when the entire Divine conflict stuff is the vast majority of the reason I started playing Achaea in the first place. It pains me to see the pantheon so relatively empty. Not having a Babel to your Deucalion sucks so bad, there's SO much potential for incredible shit there.

    It'd also be great if I could join an Order with a Divine that doesn't either go inactive and cycle players or get killed.

    There's plenty of involvement from certain gods. How many gods are actively involved at any given time has always varied, though. It's easy to say things used to be better, but unless you were in particular orders, I don't think it was much different. It does suck for the Babelites not having a god for so long.

    Weren't you in an order with an active god and you quit it?

    Also, @Deucalion is awesome. <3

    @Sartan seems pretty cool too.

    I think he means gods active and involved in each other's business. We are getting a family all gathered around the table at Christmas sharing strained small talk in itchy sweaters trying not to mention Lorielan's new boyfriend or how Aegis needs to lose some weight but really... really we just want to see some Jerry Springer shit.

    Deucalion's accidentally burned the turkey in the kitchen.
    Aurora's busy trying to fix the god damn logosmas tree lights (they just keep flickering out!)
    You know you saw Twilight come in, his car's still outside, but you're not sure where the fuck he is now.
    Aegis is getting a bit of a pot-belly since the divorce, and doesn't really want to control Pandora who's probably the one that set the oven to a higher temp than it was supposed to be.
    Lorielan's on her 4th or 5th boyfriend (and she swears that HE'S the one).  He probably kneels down and proposes and everyone's awkwardly looking away at the almost immediate "No."
    Prospero brought so many gifts for folks.  Namely the children.  Especially the children.  
    Sartan came in with his like 4 kids and they're all behaving properly, but if they step out of line he beats the shit out of them infront of everyone. It probably needs CPS called.
    Vastar and Neraeos are arguing on the back porch again over which is better, Aviation or Nautical stuff.  They have sweaters to match their views.
    Gaia & Artemis came in matching floral dresses and are probably that cool lesbian aunt you have that spoils the ever-living fuck out of you.
    Scarlatti is singing logosmas carols and inviting everyone to join in, only Phaestus does (and he's pretty fucking hammered).  It still sounds okay.
    Ourania came in with Twinkles as well.  You're not sure where she went either...
    I love that!

    Nope. I was a Caefir during the Whocalion days.

    Just the time period when we technically had a Deucalion, but he was legitimately almost never around and even when he was, didn't have much of a presence outside his order. We didn't get an actually active, visible Deucalion until just recently.

    There's been a few Deucalions since Targossas came around.

    First, there was the original Deucalion (post Worldreaver) who just abruptly disappeared after a few months. Then, there was who we commonly call Whocalion, who was the primary Deucalion up until very recently, wherein we now have Thirddeuc (or D3) who is basically everywhere at once and a constant fixture in the city. During the first two Deucalions, Aurora was the primary Bloodsworn presence.

    Now there's no Aurora anymore, D3 is the go-to Bloodsworn divine.

    Wait God's can come back? I thought once you were a God you couldn't play as an adventurer anymore.

    You can't play the two at the same time, but since player character isn't retired, technically it can be resumed once the God retires.

    Correct. Including Celani, but IC there is 0 links, and many years ago it was very frowned upon to share if you became a celani. Not sure how long ago that was though, just remember it was very hush hush.

    Alas, most of our children go 'Hnnnng' at the thought of that. We have the most badass youths in the world.

    According to Sarapis, once you have seen the code behind the game, you are no longer allowed to play a mortal.
