The Deity is the primary antagonist of Deity mode. It derives its power from its God Cultists and the unholy Structures they build.
Divinity for Dummies
If you're reading this, you've probably just been selected to play as an eldritch horror for the very first time. Congratulations! Here are the first few things you need to keep in mind:
- The Deity sees through its Cultists and Structures. It can jump to and follow a Cultist at will with the "Jump to Follower" verb, but cannot do so with Structures unless someone is speaking to a Pylon, at which point it gains the ability to jump to that Pylon.
- The Deity cannot physically interact with other entities but can use Phenomena depending on its Intent. These Phenomena can be configured with the corresponding verb.
- The Deity's abilities function using Power, which is slowly generated by Structures and tends to spike during the construction of shrines. However, it will also lose Power when its Structures are destroyed. Without Power, it can't do anything, so you had best protect those shrines.
- Unlike regular Cult, God Cultists cannot convert other crew members on their own. They must bring a willing entity next to an Altar, at which point the Deity can prompt them to join the Cult. Unwilling converts can be tossed onto the Altar and held there to be Converted, but it costs a large amount of Power and is generally rather inefficient.
The Deity begins the round formless and must choose a form. Currently, there are two forms available for the Deity's use:
Geometer of Blood
|Use the blood of the converted to forge armor and weaponry. Cripple the faithless with visions of Hell. Unleash a Zombie Plague unto the world.||All abilities cost blood|
|Use two powerful branches of magic to bewilder the crew and punish the faithless. Unleash an army of stone Golems. Make the Wizard angry that you stole his gimmick.||All abilities must recharge after one use|
These forms come with their own unique powers, both as Boons and Artifacts for their Cultists and Phenomena for their own use. Use them wisely. NOTE: Generic Boons are automatically available for the Deity to bestow regardless of their form, while Generic Phenomena are always available for their use.
