+trey causey blog and he wrote a post about gods influencing/messing with/blue bolting PCs. Manipulation of powerful PCs so the gods can get what they want, or, the PCs away from getting what they want. Either way you have immortal, very powerful beings taking a huge role in a campaign's direction.
Question is, how much direct influence do the gods have in your campaign?
Do they work as a backdrop, people kneel down before stone likenesses and blather on about how great thou art? Or do they appear amongst the folks to cruise for ladies or provide aid?
Usually in my campaign it is a little more of the second one. Gods do directly take part in the shaping of things. And like any true bunch of immortals, they are completely dysfunctional, irrational and self-defeating. While the gods may not take an active role in a current adventure, however, they are definitely influencing the shape of the whole. Even if it's in the background. I think it adds depth and a living world. Things continue to evolve even if the players are not directly interacting with it.
So what's up with your gods?
