Let the Celestial Court reconsider these ideas.

Add these Power Components:-

* Eclipse - Deity must destroy one of eir Incarnation’s Powers for each use of this Power. (+8 Global Worship).

* Omen - When using this Power the Deity must make a post announcing the targets or other choices e will make at least 24 hours before every use of the Power. E must use the Power with the declared targets within 48 hours of the announcement, or any Deity may force em to use it as declared.(+5 Global Worship)

* Holy Site: ((City Name)) - This Power only works in the City named. (+8 City Worship).

* Self - This Power may only target the Incarnation using the Power, or Temples to that Incarnation. This applies to at least one choice of Incarnation or Temple in the Power not already applied to Idol or Tribe Components. Must be combined with at least one Might Component which targets an Incarnation or Temple. (+1 Global Worship).

* Idol: ((Incarnation Name)) - This Power may only target the named Incarnation (which may not be the Incarnation using the Power), Temples to that Incarnation, or Deities using that Incarnation. This applies to at least one choice of Incarnation, Temple or Deity in the Power not already applied to Self or Tribe Components. Must be combined with at least one Might Component which targets an Incarnation, Temple or Deity.(+3 Global Worship).

* Tribe: ((Pantheon Name)) - This Power may only target Incarnations, Temples, Cities and Deities belonging to the named Pantheon (which must be a different Pantheon from the one of the Incarnation using the Power). This applies to at least one choice of Incarnation, Temple, City or Deity in the Power not already applied to Self or Idol Components. Must be combined with at least one Might Component which targets an Incarnation,Temple, City or Deity.(+2 Global Worship).

* Bless - A target Deity gains X Quintessence. (+15X Global Might)

* Curse - A target Deity loses X Quintessence. (+10X Global Might)

* Purify - Destroy a Power of an Incarnation. That Incarnation may not create a Power using any of the Components of the destroyed Power for the next 24 hours. (+35 Global Might)

against COV. Beg someone please to veto it or Smith to S-K:

Eclipse is *HIGHLY* Exploitable:

- Create a Eclipse-Leader-Radiate Power:
—->
- Use 1 Quint to Create Power X
- Use Power X
- Use the Eclipse-Leader-Radiate Power to Destroy Power X and regain Quintessence
- Rinse and Repeat from—->

I can easily envision an Scheme using the above procedure, plus Holy Site-Universal-Aura and Holy Site-Universal-Inspire to gain infinite Quint.

against Self-Kill. good point. I have a better idea for a fix… what about limiting power creation? Make it an ‘often’ ability of all deities.
