Two years ago we released Part-Time Gods, a tabletop RPG that focuses on balancing the mortal and divine as you play regular people suddenly imbued with the power of a god. During the course of this Kickstarter, we have made Part-Time Gods a Pay-What-You-Want product on DriveThruRPG. Feel free to download it to get you pumped for these expansions.

LINK

Divine Instruments is the first sourcebook for the gameline, expanding on some of the core themes and interesting ideas mentioned in the corebook. Specifically, this means expanded discussion and rules for:

  • Worshippers: Rules for a more intimate approach to worshippers and their effect on a god. Also, how to pick a Champion to fight for your dominion. 
  • Territory: New info on how divine territory is collected, distributed and fought by in the daily struggle between gods for power. 
  • Relics: New options for starting Relics, as well as rules for how to be a Relic Crafter yourself and expanded rules on relics that house the souls of the old gods. 

In addition to the expanded rules, there will also be new Outsiders (mythological creatures bent on taking the gods down a peg), 3 new Theologies (viewpoints on a god's power), and new Entitlements (natural powers of the gods). On top of all of that, at least 1 adventure should be included as well. I've brought in some great talent to help write book, too. The esteemed Brandon K. Aten, newcomer Matthew Orr and I are working hard to produce the best sourcebook possible for Part-Time Gods fans!

Risks and challenges

In order to get all of this to be as awesome as possible, we're looking to the fans of Part-Time Gods, or Third Eye Games as a whole, to help us out with all the things that go with creating a book. This includes art costs, printing costs and the cost of paying freelancers for their amazing contributions. The initial goals for each sourcebook are pretty modest, but will ensure they all have everything we want in it. With the sheer number of stretch goals we have in mind, we're looking to release the main sourcebooks quarterly and the expansions probably bi-monthly, with the intention of having everything out within the next year.
