WE get to choose!

Post  PrincessMuin on Tue Oct 21, 2008 1:03 am

YAY! The Gods have told me that we get to discuss and let them know what we want the Aztec equivalents of Deacon, Priest, Bishop and Archbishop to be called in TN.

Go on, people, discuss your hearts out! Very Happy

Does this also mean that the gods have decided that there will be an aztec equivalent to those, thereby closing the door to a possibility of different mechanics?

OOC: Well, that would be a developer question, I guess they'll fix existing issues first rather than rewrite stuff, but I'm just guessing.

Let's suggest alternate names for now, and suggest other options later. That kind of adjustment takes lines and lines of code, so I don't see them running to make it happen for us instantly. Very Happy

But I see no harm in at least communicating our suggestions, because even in RK they are looking at 3 religions, right? So they ARE making modifications.. and maybe would welcome the input.

Go ahead and say how you see it.

More like hint about three religions, provide just one, and leave crucial parts of the one missing. At least for now. A priestess needs to have faith.

Anyhow, what you requested:

Deacon -> Priest
Priest -> High Priest
Bishop -> The High Priest of "name of tribe"
Archbishop -> unique honorific

such as The Voice of Gods, Tlaloc's Right Thumb, Exalted One. No title is used more than once. Picking one that annoys gods is not recommended.

Alternatively,
Deacon -> Temple Servant
Priest -> Clan Priest
Bishop -> High Priest
Archbishop -> The High Priest of "chosen god for fanatics, tribe otherwise"

Deacon: Temple Servant
Priest:Temple leader
Bishop: Priest of *province*
Archbishop: High Priest
Cardinal: High priest of *god*

About the Pope, I read recently that the highest spiritual leader was also the King of the empire.

Yes true, this is one culture where religion, politics and army could be headed by one person.

Well, great suggestions, let's wait for some more names for everyone.

Most likely. But it would depend which lifetime you refer to, as I'm on my third right now.

However, reveling my name from another life doesn't seem pertinent to this discussion, unless you know a way to hard code me as the Archbishop equivalent in TN Rolling Eyes Wink

what do you think about having players roleplaying the gods? It would give a very real sense of the gods (duh) and pleasing/displeasing them, maybe fighting to make them the most worshiped.

I can see it going fantastically or horribly wrong lol Some ideas how to work it:

Elect the gods based on rp etc, repeat elections every month - would (hopefully) make sure we didn't get inactives or people who didn't rp it properly but would take out any realism of the gods being all powerfull

Elect them they are stuck there - can only be removed by vote because of inactivity.


Obviously whoever rped them would be that role only.
