This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

An entirely unfair comparison to make given proximity to release, but I am sure some people will be excited to see Godbound sitting above Ex3 on DTRPG in sales today.

Has any one figured out large scale army battles in case your godbound wants to lead a army?

Use the Mob rules on pages 152-153 to represent the armies. I think that is better than trying to turn armies into mods for PCs.

That is great for Godbound vs group.  What I am talking about is group vs group.

Yup, same as the Deluxe Edition. Only difference really is the bonus content.

As a "Made God" tier backer...pleased. Very pleased.

So, now that we have a corebook to the masses...the question I should be asking around these parts is anyone interested in a weekend Roll20 type game?

Remember when Illinois Nazis where a joke in the Blue Brothers movie?

Democracy, meh? (538)

 "The salient fact of American politics is that there are fifty to seventy million voters each of whom will volunteer to live, with his family, in a cardboard box under an overpass, and cook sparrows on an old curtain rod, if someone would only guarantee that the black, gay, Hispanic, liberal, whatever, in the next box over doesn’t even have a curtain rod, or a sparrow to put on it."

Agreed. Mass Combat isn't a major issue for me but the systems were you figuratively wear your army always seem a little wonky even as an abstraction.

Its very pretty. As Mostlyjoe says the pages are the same as the Deluxe, you just don't get the last 50 or so.

Nice. May have to pick that up eventually for the read.

The bonus content has universal applicability but also provides a relatively comprehensive bundle for converting Exalted to Godbound.

That and well Scion, Gods of the Fall, just about any demigod theme game you want to put a specific style of filter on.
