Changing gears here: Gods, atheism and theology. Been trying to make sense of it all, as far as i can tell, there's those who still hold onto the dead gods (whether that's IC or OOC i don't know), those who demand a new divine thing to worship (which i guess is what sects were supposed to be but that seems to have not been so good), and then there's me and atheism (and maybe some others i don't know about). Dimitri's atheist, since he was born a couple centuries after the death of the gods it made sense for me to have him just not be aware of the gods in anyway beyond this old story that just doesn't seem relevant to him. He's tried to wrap his head around it, read the books in the library, he's even voiced holding onto the old faith makes no sense. Has he gotten flak for it? Yeah, whenever i let his atheist flag fly. I'm not really backing down on the matter it's more Dim thinks he's in a minority. Probably is.
I tried to put Dim as a Templar, even used the devotion skill for a bit. Made Dim all uncomfortable with it, liked the results but he had questions about it all, like 'why is this power still working?' 'why does it work for -me- specifically, someone who's spoken aloud his disbelief in the gods'. Dim was in the sect of storms for a bit cause entities weren't gods, or so he was told, and I was still faffing around with his belief system. After that blew up, i decided he was going to be atheist.
