As a huge fan of Godstorm and 2210, I'd love to see this made.

My gosh, is that your first post? Now I've gotta make it.
I will wait for an XML update or two, but it'll be done eventually.

I said this map would be back after an XML update, and now I stick to my word. I was hoping for conditional borders on this, but now that losing conditions are out, these could be put to just as good a use to make this map unique.

The setup: There are eight starting positions, each consisting of one pantheon and its associated sky god. The other gods are neutral. The underworld consists entirely of neutral 1s. There is no way to attack from between the underworld and the Earth, or from either to the Heavens. There is a losing condition that a player who owns no territories on the Earth is instantly eliminated.

(One issue I see is, what if your pantheon is nuked? It could be somewhat compensated for by letting your own gods assault the Pantheon back, but the other gods are open to bombardment... I don't like the idea of a player randomly and irrevocably losing their divine favor. It's possible to make each temple assault its own pantheon but that just makes it even easier for players to attack other players' pantheons directly, which I don't want. Gosh, I hope I don't have to wait for another XML update..)

Also, I don't know if you should worry about nuclear games. I mean, there are tons of other maps that can be played with nuclear spoils, I don't think every map has to play well with nuclear.

I think you said in the first post that the gods of a pantheon can attack the pantheon territory itself? Not sure if that changed since then - but if not, all a player would have to do is conquer one of the other gods on his first turn, and he should be safe (barring the very worst of luck).

I like it a lot. Never heard of the board game version though. Will have to have a look-see. :)

Nothing from the first post is guaranteed to apply anymore. I'm not sure whether or not the god-pantheon border should be two-directional -- under normal conditions, I suppose the benefit of that would be to let troops be reinforced from one God to another (and if you own the death and sky gods, from the Heavens to the underworld or your temple). I guess that's a good thing.

Anything in Southeast Asia would have the Indian gods, as from the first kingdom in the historical record, the indianized Funan, until the spread of Buddhism, the whole region worshipped Hindu gods. Even now, the Hindu gods are still worshipped in many of these countries.

You could try to build something from the remnants of surviving indigenous belief systems.
Like the Thai ngueak, which sometimes translates as merely mermaid, but those in the Mekong are still believed by locals to be vampire mermaids that are blamed for drownings. However, I don't think you'll be able to come up with any deities that are widely recognized for each of the types you need: Sky, War, Death, Trickster.

I think both for structure, and for deity name recognition, Europe seems to be the best spot to set a map like this. Sad, but true.

Yes. Random drop. The temples might start neutral.
