IN THE LAND OF EDEN, YOU ARE A GOD.
Once there was nothing. The universe only existed for millions upon millions of years as nothingness. Then something happened. Two particles hit each other, and then there was light. The universe slowly expanded, particles constantly bumping into each other, growing into larger forms. This continued for thousands upon thousands of more years. This phase of the universe is simply titled the Phase. The time before time, where the only things that were are stationary celestial bodies. The only "God" that existed in this time is Nature. Nature knows all, sees all. You can not fight Nature, as everything that exists does so within Nature. Does Nature have an agenda? Only time can tell.
Skip to present day. Aeons have passed since the beginning of time. The world is new. Planets have formed. They were once volcanic wastelands, then planets covered in oceanic thunderstorms, until they finally formed into the world that we know today. This story takes place on the planet of Eden. Eden is a lush world, full of green and beauty. It is also full of terrors as well. You a are a new and young God. You were born from the prayers of the people. They need the help of someone out there. The People are young and foolish. They resemble apes now, but they will soon grow into something great with your assistance. Their future rests in your hands. What will you do with it?
This roleplay is inspired by God simulation games, and I thought it would be really neat to turn this into a roleplay. As mentioned above, you play as a new God, brought to life by the prayers of humans. This is only a concept now, but we can expand upon it together. I want to allow you as much creative freedom as I can, so please share with me your ideas.
Your God will have a name and a Human form, or a form of whichever people you choose to rule over. You can make a custom race if you want, depending on the race, or you can recycle another fantasy race. The only thing is that your race can't be inherently stronger then any other race without setbacks.
You will choose how your people grow and evolve. Time means nothing to a God. Gods do sleep, but their periods between sleeping and waking are much longer. Time will pass for your people, but not for you. You will start in the prehistoric ages. How you interact with your people and other Gods is up to you. What you do in your time of waking influences what your people evolve into once you reach your period of sleeping. You will wake and find a much more civilized society before you. Or maybe not, depending on your actions. Please talk to me about what you are trying to turn your people into. If you don't, I'll just guess and I might make them into something you don't want. That's the last thing I want to do. Also, there may be a few surprises.
Your God form is just sphere of light of the color of your choice. Each God has their own personality and dreams for their people. Each God owns a territory. You can mess around in other God's territories, but be careful. You may start a war between the two of you, making both of your people unhappy.
You pick any color of the Spectrum and each of them represent a God. You pick one, and another player will not be able to pick the same one. The color you pick decides what color you are in your God form. Not only do you get a form of your people, so you can interact with them as well, but you can shape-shift into anything that you desire. You are a God, after all. The color you choose does not determine your personality or future. Really, the only thing it does is help me keep track of players and it determines what color of light you are in your God form. The only disadvantage is that you can not use your Godly abilities when not in your God form, no exceptions.
There is already a God that has existed before all of you. Nature. Nature has no Color, and needs no God form. Nature's people is life itself. Nature does not care about what you do. Nature may have an agenda, but you do not know what it is. Basically, Nature is just there. You can control things of nature yourself, of course. You can make mountains, rivers or forests. But you can not ever defeat Nature, and Nature does what she wills. She is all powerful. Her actions can sometimes surprise you. Nature acts more like an in-game moderator. So follow the rules!
Here is a list of colors: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...s:_A%E2%80%93F
1. You may be a God, but you do not control other God's actions. They have just as much equal power as you do. Do not control other players, and of course you can not kill another player without their consent or if I give you special permission. (Only in rare cases.)
2. Unlike other RPs, God-modding is allowed! Be careful though. There are lots of Gods out there, and they can cripple you if they ally against you. The only exception to this rule is that all Gods are as equally powerful, and if you direct your race to have inherent powers, they need some drawbacks as well.
3. If your people die, YOU die! That means no killing an entire God's people without their consent or mine. You can kill, for sure, but no mass genocide!
4. Post at least once a day. I hate droppers!
That is all I can think of for now.
First of all, I really need to know who would be interested in an roleplay like this? I can't go any further unless at least five people show interest in this. Also, please tell me what you think! I know its really open now, so feel absolutely free to share your creative ideas. I want to hear them!

Also, you won't get anywhere sitting around doing nothing or just tormenting your people. You actually need to help them advance, or else another God's people might just outrun you in population and technology advancement! So help them before they are wiped out!
