Nominations for common lore "Creators". We want EVERYONE!

Post by msyblade » Mon Nov 19, 2012 5:04 pm

Abnormal thought for u guys, I've always had this desire to have a deep,and meaningful common lore that we can share in our mods. Kind of crossover without the effort. Like how all the Star Wars Novels, Cartoons, and movies are "connected", but really not. Obviously, it takes an incredible amount of a certain kind of creativity, and usually more than one brain; to do it and do it so that it doesn't suck. So, I got an Idea of a Tri-Temple thing using Daniv's tilesets and normal temple. Well, obviously I'm gonna need Gods to populate the temples, and the same freakin gods keep coming to mind,and I cant break the mental loop i'm in.

So here goes.

In the worlds we are creating, my head and heart are in the world. And when I look around and observe things, the same names. . .creators if you will, occur to me. If you have a creation I could associate with your name, please pm me!)

Anyway, room for everyone sorry if i missed your name , just off the top of my head

thoughts/feedback?

Feel free to nominate members of the community for what diety you think they may be suited for in the universe we are creating, or if your name is already included, please give your consent for the realm associated.

Please do not feel hesitant to:

A: Say if you would prefer not to be associated with a particular realm.

B: What realm you think you would be suited for.
There is no limit, there is no cap. Just an attempt to be able to associate our worlds together using the people who created it!

I'm happy to be in the list but my problem is that's a lot of gods in one place, a few goddesses here & there wouldn't hurt. :lol:

I actually like this idea.
Not because I like to be considered a god, but because it's an act of appreciation that goes further than just tacking someone's name into the credits of a mod.

@Batty, I am okay with being referred to as a Goddess~

I would like to see some of the names polished up.

Unfortunately I have no suggestions on that matter.
Other than I figured CromCrom would be the God of Crafting. He started working on crafting systems from the get go. o:

Final note: As long as this doesn't make anyone big-headed, or anyone feel insignificant, I'm all for this.

These were literally just off the top of my head. I think a nice discussion, people volunteering or asking not to be considered, would be in order. I actually named 2 or 3 people, then felt bad for picking and choosing or leaving names out so just kept throwin em out there. We could have people submit themselves, with a suggestion for their realm. Room for everyone, right? We could have some sort of nomination/vote process for any unused people; and the process of creating it would help keep the modders aware of the lore. . .that they are a part of :) On a side note, my username doesn't transfer, at all, and it wouldn't bother me. I really just want things/people to reference when I am creating a storyline.

I nominate HaunterV as the God of Curiousity.

That guy is always pushing us to explore the "What Ifs" of modding.

SpiderFighter is constantly helping people having trouble, Nominate for the God of Aid/Assistance. (Bet I could work THAT into a puzzle).

Edsploration: The name is too awesome in this context. Speaks for itself.

I could do this all day!!

I can just imagine mods doing something like
"You have been blessed by the god of Creativity! Your machine shaft is now a bludgeoning weapon!"
"I'm okay with being referred to as a goddess."
