It could always be just like the fall of Rome... it starts with something as simple as lead pipes, everyone getting poisoned.  Then there are the civil wars and arsons, then there's a plague, then the rulers of the empire lose the extremely minimal control over the totem gods that they had, and the gods go "wacky" on the empire.

Sounds perfect. A nice series of unfortunate events weakening the stability of the empire, and then BLAM godzilla time! And the nice part is that it puts a precedent in place for high level or even epic level encounters, if you ever decide to go down that road.

EDIT: I do not however advocate that the totem gods are running around smashing cities today. This was a unique occurance that has happened only once in the past. Normally the totem gods should only be active a few at a time, and in the wilder parts of the world, nowhere near the cities. I don't want the setting to turn into 8-bit Rampage (I suspect only Cymro is going to have any memory of this game).

That's the one! I loved it too, but it wouldn't make a good RPG now would it?

Hey, I played it on the Sega Master System. I'm getting the feeling that I'm one of the older 'gents' here.

I agree that "most" of the totems shouldn't be smash happy all the time, but I disagree that they should be "inactive" most of the time. They're creatures, they should be awake regularly like regular creatures. They'll be peaceful most of the time, living in their secluded areas. They're gods, so they don't really "need" to eat, so they aren't going to mess up the ecosystem or anything like that.

its not that old of a game is it?

I think I was about eight years old when it came out, so that means it was released about 20 years ago. Here we go http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rampage_%28arcade_game%29. 1986 release date.

Time to condense most of these ideas and expand other ideas and get this history straight.  Any particular thoughts on this before we start posting things in the wiki?

This is a proposal for the history of Cebegia, based on what I have read that people like and dislike.

Hmmm, apparently CeBeGia's coming back?  If so, I'll be happy to contribute again as well.

Well if you would be happy to contribute what did you think of my history proposal? Since you were one of the first group you could tell me if I'm close to what was discussed before.

I really like that history that is listed. It covers a good deal while leaving lots of room for other important things to be added. It is good overview!

Thanks for writing it.

Agreed with the history.

Wiki now?

Although it was suggested in the Wiki thread that Devious could've been responsible for the fall.

With edits for the pantheon discussion, here is a slightly revised version.

It's too early to wiki it, There needs to be more agreement than just two people.

Golem, I'm going to have to read the pantheon discussion again, but the last time I read it not much has been agreed upon. I think totems and non-interactive gods and saints were the only things agreed upon. That is why I let the events very vague, as they are discussed details can be filled in.

That was just what I got from the suggested (and apparently agreed upon) Saints. I have no problem with your version, it's just the two threads seem to be contradicting one another. tongue
