It’s pretty easy to make a god. All you have to do is believe.
But you aren’t any under obligation to keep on doing it.
You are one of the godlets, the tiny deities born of the imagination of children. Once, you were a toy, or the darkness of a bedroom at night, or a beloved pet; now, invested with the total faith of a child, you find yourself something more.
Or at least, you did. Children grow up, and dismiss the superstitions they held when they were young. As with all gods, a total lack of faith would be fatal - but a trace of you still survives, in a half-forgotten memory at the back of your creator’s head, or in a drawing they made of you that lingers in a dusty attic. And so, despite the odds, you’re still around.
Reviled by ‘full’ gods, unacknowledged by holy books or temples, you godlets exist on the fringes of reality, drifting from place to place without aim or reason. However, that’s not why you have ended up in the little desert town of Gallow Springs: you’re here because you felt someone call you here. You don’t know who. You don’t know why. But someone - or something - has drawn you to the tiny burg.
When you get here, though, the pull seems to fade, and you lose track of where it’s coming from. Sensing other godlets nearby, you and they converge on a nearby diner, tired and confused. Perhaps if you can talk to one another, you will be able to figure something out.
You certainly hope so.
Roleplaying is strongly encouraged; the story is one of characters as much as plot, and we won’t be confining ourselves to the challenge cards.
Inspired by the classic Saki story Sredni Vashtar - which you do not need to have read to play, although I recommend it as both extremely short and utterly brilliant.
