    Default Best God for Prayer Beads

    Okay, so let's say there's a bunch of clerics in the group arguing over who gets the Prayer bead that summons the avatar of a the priest's deity. How would you decide priority? Does this just devolve into "My god can beat up your god?"

    Not at all, you also have to think about whether the god might decide to smite you just for fun.

    or because you're evil.

    Tell them you'll cut the bead in half and give each of them half. The first one to suggest giving the whole bead to the other cleric instead gets to have the bead.

    Alternatively, tell them you'll cut the bead in half but instead use it to summon the avatar of your character's deity to kick some friendliness into their heads.

    Whoever has the neutral god wins. Because he's least likely to solve the problem by wiping out the opposition.

    This sounds vaguely familiar for some reason.
    I would really like to see a game made by Obryn, Kurald Galain, and Knaight from these forums.

    I'm not joking one bit. I would buy the hell out of that.

    Whichever's most useful at the moment. Fighter's on death's door? Summon the healbot god. Need to stomp some orcs? Summon the goddess of slaughter.

    I'm afraid the Bead of Summoning no longer summons gods. It hasn't been that way since 3.0 I think.

    I'm assuming the smiley means you are kidding, but just in case you aren't it comes from the Book of Kings.

    Really? I thought it had something to do with Newman and a bicycle.

    I might be misremembering but Beelzebub is playing 2e, not 3e.

    now, on the topic at hand, I second the suggestion of summning the god which would be more useful at hand (or that might have direct interest in the issue)

    That's because there is nothing new under the sun.

    I thought it had to do with Dinosaurs myself. I jest about this, of course.
