[Gods of Wandrossa] Basic powers

In the Gods of Wandrossa revamp, I set up the godly alignments so that they each offered set powers at the 1st through 5th levels.

This article will define those powers. The powers are listed in alphabetical order.


Bless

3rd-level good power

Implementation Time: 1 action

Target: 1 settlement

Duration: a number of days equal to your might bonus

The might cost to build or improve the target is halved for the duration.


Create Celestial

2nd-level good power

Implementation Time: 1 action

Target: self

Duration: a number of days equal to your Might score

You create a new celestial. When you use this power, describe the celestial and how it functions in one sentence (the overdeity creates it for you). The CR of the celestial depends on your power slot level: 1st CR 0 – 1, 2nd CR 2-4, 3rd CR 5-10, 4th CR 11-17, 5th CR 18+. You can use a 6th level slot to create a legendary celestial.

For the duration, your Might bonus increases by 2. This bonus doubles when used to take the Divine Intervention action.


Create Fiend

2nd-level evil power

Implementation Time: 1 action

Target: self

Duration: a number of days equal to your Might score

You create a new fiend. When you use this power, describe the fiend and how it functions in one sentence (the overdeity creates it for you). The CR of the fiend depends on your power slot level: 1st CR 0 – 1, 2nd CR 2-4, 3rd CR 5-10, 4th CR 11-17, 5th CR 18+. You can use a 6th level slot to create a legendary fiend.

For the duration, your Might bonus increases by 2. This bonus doubles when used to take the Conflict action.


Curse

3rd-level evil power

Implementation Time: 1 action

Target: 1 settlement

Duration: a number of days equal to your Might score

The might cost to build or improve the target doubles for the duration.


Deliverance

4th-level good power

Implementation Time: 1 reaction, after a god whose Might score is equal to yours or less uses a power to reduce the population of a settlement

Target: 1 god

Duration: Instantaneous

The god’s power fails and has no effect.


Enslave

4th-level evil power

Implementation Time: 1 action

Target: 1 settlement as the target and 1 settlement as the beneficiary

Duration: Instantaneous

Reduce the target’s population by an amount equal to 10 times your Might score. The beneficiary’s wealth increases by an amount equal to your Might score. If this power would reduce the target’s population to 0 or less, the settlement turns to ruins.


Massacre

1st-level evil power

Implementation Time: 1 action

Target: 1 settlement

Duration: Instantaneous

Reduce the target’s population by an amount equal to 10 times your Might score. You gain a number of followers equal to half the population reduced in this way. If this power would reduce the population to 0 or less, the settlement turns to ruins.


Miracle

1st-level good power

Implementation Time: 1 action

Target: 1 settlement

Duration: Instantaneous

You gain a number of followers equal to 10 times your Might score.


Peace

5th-level good power

Implementation Time: 1 reaction to a conflict action thread

Target: 1 settlement

Duration: a number of days equal to your Might score

You target a settlement that is under conflict. During the resolution phase, the conflict fails as long as no other god has a Might score that is higher than yours. The target cannot be the target of a conflict for the duration.


Taint

5th-level evil power

Implementation Time: 1 reaction to a conflict action thread

Target: 1 region

Duration: a number of days equal to your Might score

The cost for non-evil gods to build or improve temples in the region doubles.

  1. Is “Bless” really an evil power? Also, “Create Celestial” says “describe the fiend” rather than “describe the celestial”. Is there an “editor” domain or similar?
