Both possibilities.  I was thinking maybe 'Balance of Powers' or something... we seemed to have a lot of people playing off one another this time around... a certain someone seemed to think that Time meant 'meddle' :D
Name: Gian, the Seductress.
Holy Symbol: A Vaguely feminine outline that suggests pleasant curves and sinuous lines that seem to dance as the eyes stray across them.
Appearance: Gian appears to be a succubus-like figure, with sharp backwards curving horns, black lucious hair, and a very curvy frame. She does have wings of a span of 60 feet, but they are covered in downy black feathers.
(Proposed) Domain: Pleasure/Seduction/Lust.
Misc: She is a wild kind of person, favoring freedom and love over most other values.

Another quick question, didn't know whether to post this here or in the group, but here it shall be!

What is the nature of the creation/discovery of the planet the game will take place on?
Do the Gods merely find a blank planet, and start to shape it as they see fit, do they create a new planet entirely out of nothingness or some other option?

Reading through the previous games, it seems different each time, and I'd just like to know how we'll come across the planet which we shall shape.
Thanks in advance for replies.
it kinda is different every time. Sometimes its just there, and others we kinda just make it as we go and run with it. We like to keep it simple so every one can let the creative juices flow freely as it were.

I am both selfish and chaotic. I value self-gratification and control; I want to have things my way, preferably now. At best, I'm entertaining and surprising; at worst, I'm hedonistic and violent.

The answer is, as Joran said, different every time.

We often try and come up with some sort of motivating story... for this latest one, we had a barren world come upon by an Elder God that prompted the de novo creation of new divinities.

For the one before that, the entirety of creation was a game of hide and seek between two gods who  had grown bored with the normal ways of life (really a shame we didn't see that one off properly)

Another was two opposite planes colliding together after some time.  

And for (many) others, its 'the universe was null and void, and lo! a Spark!' and away we go.

If you want amusement at how convoluted that could get, take a look at Aetheric Realms, or LoC2.  Early on in the game, the entire world changed shape (in dramatic ways) several times over the course of a week or two.  Thankfully we didn't have any mortals at that point, or they'd be VERY confused.

Gin and Gray, sadly you appear to have caught us *between* games, as we've just drawn the curtain (as it were) on this current iteration.  We'll start another one up soon, though.

 
Allright, Gives me time to clear up my description of the deity I created, looking back I think some things aren't very clear.
Please! If you all could, go to the LOC group, and join us there while we wait for a new one to start up again! We are always looking for more people to join us. Gin_and_Gray, James, I'm sorry you found us at this stage, but stick around and I'm certain that you'll find lots of fun ahead. I cant wait to see your ideas come to light in the next game!

By the way all material we make here is open game use, so if you wish please use any and all material in the LOC universes for your own homebrew games! And if you do, let us know about it in the group forums, I know Topheh, the others and I love to hear stories about that!

Our wiki might be of some help too  Still need to put this game on there.

I did apply to join the group awhile after my first post on this thread and thought I was approved and in the group, but that appears to not be the case.
There's probably an invite floating around there somewhere
How very right you are.

You are now a member! 
As are the other two that applied
I think we should all have a meeting and talk about the future of LoC and just catch up/ get to know one another.  

I've created a Doodle poll to see when people are availible the next few weeks.  Hope to see everyone there!

Well, I kinda dropped the ball on this one, given that last night would have been an excellent time to meet.

As is, I'm going to be hanging out in mibbit all week, and lets try to meet up there this thursday and saturday evenings.  Looking forward to talking to everyone! 
Our first meeting was a success!  Thank you to everyone who showed up.

We have an important announcement.  We are going to be starting up a new LoC near the start of the new year!  Please come on Saturday to the mibbit chat to discuss the proposed rules and talk to one another about your plans!
