Divom: Rebirth [Gods, start your engines.]
« on: February 27, 2015, 12:48:35 AM »
Since time immemorial, your mind has drifted amongst the Void with no direction and no purpose. That is, until you came across a celesital body. It is a volcanically active planet, orbiting a binomal* star. The planet is lifeless and has no atmosphere or water. This is when you feel within your collective self for the first time the energy you had been collecting spring forth, and give yourself shape. And with your shape, comes a unique personality. What will you do now?

His Lordship Exodus, gazed upon the molten stone which hovered about in ever turning movements. It would fit beautiful purposes in the time to come, but first there needed to be places to walk without being burned .

And so, as the first action upon this virgin planet, His Lordship rose forth crags of stone from the volcanic rock, pushing it away and creating a large miles long plateau, the magma would lap against it's foundations but none would find it's way to the top. With that done he created a void rift inside of the lava, pressing some of it into space and freezing it into a new thing, water. He then threw the new cloud of water done towards the planet. Finally, he created a single grain of planet life, a single grain of grass which he planted carefully amongst the plateau, smooving it over with dirt and letting the water wash it with life giving wonder.

Perigrinius looked down on this world, much less advanced than the last one.
He went to the far north, and raised a landmass to cover the polar cap. He then created a basic breathable, if thin, atmosphere, and created his chosen. Large creatures, resembling the pink apes from DIVOM, but at a minimum of 2 meters tall, broad, and fond of drink and pillage. He brought the art of metallurgy from the old world, and gave it to his chosen. He then sat back, content with his work at this time.

Maxwell looks to the new world, so many opportunities. He makes a forest, he puts it in the western plains, he makes a race of pigmen to inhabit the forest, then he teaches them how to make crude tools, simple, and complex structures out of wood.

[What? There is no wood and 'western area' is too vague. Remember we're dealing with an entire world and for ease of use, use the plateau as the center of the world.]

Zox looks down at this new world with disgust. Pitiful.

Zox surveys from afar as the others make what they want and construct their own dominions. Interesting.

Zox must waste no time. Living creatures, from what Zox can understand, require an atmosphere and such if they are to live on the surface. Zox has no need for such trifle things, so neither shall Zox's spawn.

With this thought in mind, Zox focuses Zox's power into the deeper parts of the planet, past the black soil, the unliving rock and the other worldly matters. Once Zox has focused deep enough, Zox begins working.

Zox uses Zox's energy to tunnel out a small system for those who will carry out Zox's will, all twisting black tunnels and large, circular rooms unlit by any light. Once sufficient quarters have been set deep within the veins of the planet, Zox works on Zox's spawn.

Tall, lithe creatures, a little over seven feet in height. Black scales adorning their bodies, glowing eyes, like those of a snake, deep emerald. Strong, thin limbs, and dozens of needle-sharp teeth and claws. No need to set out and hunt just yet, the will of their creator and the nourishing darkness will sustain them for a time.

Perigrinius puts on his polar cap grass and barley, and the first animal, the rabbit.

(I just forgot it in my main post here.) (also, we all really liked DIVOM, so who can blame us for excitement.)

I'm to lazy to terraform the planet. Subterranean hellspawn, here we go!

Rakra creates a species of large insectoid creatures, and places them within the plateau.

The Thrutians would dig themselves tiny hibernation holes near the ground to hibernate within, to conserve the depleting energy bestowed upon them for when food is more plentiful.

Alirum looks upon this pitiful planet in despair. Not a drop of water, nor cloud, nor burst of steam to carry it's influence. This simply would not do.

Alirum creates a massive storm above a depression near the equator, dropping liquid water onto the boiling surface to create a small ocean and cloud of steam of which it can call its domain.

Jaith smiled at the plain world below him, knowing that great things could be accomplished with such a perfect planet as this. Above the equator, near Capricorn, Jaith decided he needed to bestow pure life upon the world, and to make it a world where all could get along.

>Jaith creates a small spring of pure water for his first life-forms to soak in and absorb.
>Jaith begins to grow Whitegrass - the base of his creations that will prove to be very useful - it will serve as food an release breathable gases for his Divine Beasts later.

Sitting back, Jaith watched with a warm smile at his first creation of life - a divine plant that would prove to be the base of his growth. Along with the pure water, Jaith hoped to create a world of harmony, peace and happiness.

As the divine beings gain their ability to form a shape, The Divine Comedy can truly begin.

With efforts from Jaith, Alirum, and Exodus, the first water oceans form around the first landmass. It is a small island and already, two very different life forms take root. Above ground the first trees are planted and race of humanoid pigs are formed. They hunger and form their first bit of culture: Cannibalizing the unfit and weak. The second above ground life-form on this island is Whitegrass: A beautiful grass that quietly gross on the South Eastern side of the island.

To the North, Pink Giants plant roots on the second landmass located in the polar north. They hunger but are hardy creatures, and are able to eat less of each other.

Underground, two subterranean races form from the very soil. One, a bug-like race that quietly fall asleep. The other are Reptile-Like Humanoids that require no air.
