Playing the game is relatively simple, you, as a God, tell your people what you want them to do and they do their best to get it completely wrong The game revolves around conflicts both internal and external so there is always something to be doing. I intend to open the game with simple randomized events just help you get a feel before throwing proper plot at you.
Has anyone read, "Mortal Coils" by Eric Nylund or its sequel, this game reminds me of the books. All the characters are considered gods or angels and shows their personal lives and their struggles against one another. Pretty good book.
