Pray.jpg

Prayer can be anything the hero does to worship his God, and it's the main way of restoring Godpower.

After Encouraging a hero over and over again, or Punishing the incapacitated pawn, a God loses energy, also known as GP. There are quite a few ways of regaining Godpower: by the Sacrifice of an enemy, using an Accumulator charge, or the most basic method known as prayer. This method regains 15%+ of GP to the Diety.

Prayer can be initiated by sending down a Voice of god with a message to praise the Lord, or more commonly the hero does it of his own accord at a wayside shrine, a temple, or at a bamboo grove with a friend. They may also pray in Town, when Resurrected, or in a Temple.

!Tip!
There is word that a hero's prayers will get a boost when their God has been active listening to and judging the ideas of other Gods and Goddesses in the Ideabox. The God must have volunteered enough of their time to have voted on at least 50% of all the ideas in the previous 48 hours, then while worshipping the hero will receive a sign that his prayer was more powerful and he will make a note in his diary. This bonus will boost all prayers over a 24 hour period and it can be maintained consecutively if the God remains an active voter in the Ideabox.[1]


When the hero goes to Temple they usually donate money, therefore increasing the amount of GP earned.

Rumor has it that donating 100 gold coins or less restores 20% of GP. The more gold donated by the hero, the more it increases GP, even so much as to fill the GP to 100%. A good approximation for gain in GP is (gold coins donated - 100) / 10 + 20, which is 80% accurate according to the data collected so far. In Last Resort, substitute 10 with the number 5. The hero's gold is worth more because of their relaxed mental state. This formula seems to work best in all towns except Los Demonos and San Satanos (I wonder why godless towns are worse!), so there is probably a coefficient in the actual formula which varies depending on the town the hero is in.

The frequency of donations is still not yet known. Once understood, it will be posted in the Probabilities section of GodWiki.

Technique

The first step is to roll out a carpet to keep the holy site clean. It must be the preferred color of the God. Next, the worshipper must perform the ritualistic dance her Goddess programmed into her at birth. This dance symbolizes the birth and death, the love and hate, and the undying bond between the Human and their Goddess

After 10 minutes of continuous dancing, the heroine must actually say the prayers. The prayer book given to her at birth is taken out and flipped open to a random page. If the page selected is blank, then the heroine must make one up.

The final step is the most important. Once finished, the body should be glowing. This glow is the prayer that was said manifesting itself in the real world. The heroine must then focus this prayer into a collimated beam and send it through to her dominant hand. She must concentrate and fling the prayer westward, towards the Trans-Astral Highway, for it to reach the God for whom it is meant.
