How do I earn God Points?

.

God Points must be awarded by the DM or the Guild of Fools players.

.

1 God Point will be awarded for joining the GOF by following us on Twitch or on a website of our devising.

.

1 GPt will be given for each follower that you refer. (They must at least remain an active member for 2 shows for you to receive your referral GPt. They of course will have received 1 GPt for each visit.)

.

1 to 3 GPts will be awarded for Fan Art, depending on not only its beauty, but on its relevence to the current gaming session. Skill level of the artist will be taken into consideration for the awarding of GPts.

.

God Points cannot be shared (until the status of High God is achieved, this is done by aquiring 500 God Points).

.

Insulting the DM will not be rewarded, however, insulting a Fool player is okay, providing this foolery is done in jest and not simply hurtful. 1 GPt may be rewarded.

.

Making the Guild or the DM laugh hysterically is worth a GPt. The world without laughter is the world without fun.

.

Correctly answering a trivia question or completing a task set upon you by the GOF players or DM with earn you a GPoint.

.

Higher point value may be awarded at DMs discretion on all listed above and any not listed acheivement as GOF seems fit. Changes to any God Point awarded may (and probably will)be changed without notice.

.

Failure to comply with the above stated rules and any rule not stated but understood (like racial, religious, or downright mean slurs or barbs against the Fools) will result in the loss of GPts, the loss of status as a member of the Guild, the loss of face and honor, and said viewer will be termed a powerless god, or lost god, and all posts or tweets can and will be ignored.

.

In the future, God Points may be won during a sanctioned game session, casino style, or may be purchased.

How do I use God Points?

.

God Points are the power of the gods. The more GPts a god collects, the greater his/her power.

.

To use a GPt the viewer must alert the DM or GOF player(s) their interest. This may be done by Twitter (warning--the DM is not tech savvy and believes mobile phones are the Devil's vibrator) or by simply posting on the chat section of the Twitch/website stream. If, due to the delay or other technical reasons, or the game just happened to continue while you were trying to get in contact with a player or the DM and your message was not received, you will not be charged a GPt.

.

Your intent must be stated either before or while you are playing a GPt. For example, you could type "Andy, I'd like to spend 1 GPt to make the thief get a leg cramp while she's sneaking." If seen by the DM or the players, you will be docked 1 point and the effect will take place.

.

A GPt may be spent to counteract someone else's godly request. For example, if another god (viewer) wants to harm the player you have taken special notice of and spends 1 GPt to have the player trip and fall into a well, you may spend 1 GPt to nullify it. In fact, if you have another GPt you can change the other god's request. If they spent 1 pt to make your favorite player fall into a well and you spent one to nullify it, you can spend another point to allow the player to fall into a well but add pillows on the bottom so the player is not hurt. You could also add treasure to the bottom of the well so the player makes out better.

.

This makes saving God Points a wise decision. If at a later date one of your fellow gods is feeling villainous and wishes to destroy the whole world with 1000 God Points and you've spent way too much time playing in this world for the other god to kill all your mortal playthings, you must spend at least one point so that the score of 1000 pts becomes 999 and, not having the full 1000 GPts, the world is safe once again. (Unless, of course, the other god has some oracle sense and keeps one GPt saved up for just this type of crap to happen.)

.

It is also wise to become friendly with the Pantheon of viewers. Making alliances is good for the above mentioned example. Although you can't share a GPt, you can spend one of your own to make sure your godly ally gets his/her way.

.

Why did the Guild of Fools choose to use God Points?

.

We at the GOF believe (and the DM especially) that D&D is a game that MUST be played to enjoy. One cannot simply walk into our Game Room (the DM's ultimate mancave) and sit down at our custom made over-large table and say, "I just wanna watch. I've never played this game before and I'm shy and I have cramps and I want to play WOW and my wife just kicked me out and I want to play my mp3 device and play shitty music that noone in the game room even likes at super-high volume and I'll just knock over your figurines and I don't have any pizza money this week but I'm not really playing so I don't have to really pay anything, right? and I heard this is the Devil's game and my pastor molested me and told me this game makes you worship Satan and it's so hot/cold/cramped/loud/smoky/smellslikeballs in here...." No, we at the GOF have discovered that everyone that has played with us (hee hee) has had a good time. Those who just sat there like a frozen pile of dog crap may not have had as much fun. They still didn't hate our play style, they were just assholes. Assholes are not meant to play role playing games. They are not meant to play any games. Assholes suck.
So we could not play a game live over the internet and not invite all 7 billion humans on earth to play along. No one on this planet will ever, EVER, say, "Nah, I don't think I'll play. I'll just watch." If you are a viewer, you are sitting at the table with us. Even better, you are not only players, you are gods!

.

If you are a viewer, you are sitting at the table with us. Even better, you are not only players, you are gods!
Being interactive is what sets the GOF apart (and hopefully above) all other live streams on the web. Sure, you could interact with a medical website and describe that weird rash on your tush, or that burning sensation when you pee, but you can't influence the other caller's medical records and give them warts on their nose or boils on their penii (this is the proper plural form of penis. Go ahead-look it up! Just don't come crying to me when your girlfriend catches you looking up penis in a DICKtionary.) GOF makes all of this possible--and more!

.

Our play style, thanks to our not-so-sane DM allows us to adjust and improvise without a moment's notice, a true "our fate is in the gods' hands" play style. Not only does this make for a very fast paced game, but an unpredictable and crazy-fun game where ALL members of the Guild are important, not just the handful of guys and gals around the table or at the top of the pyramid, but every single freaking one of the viewers as well.
