"Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising" looks to be the first MMOG where the gods get involved with your character as a matter of routine. That is, more than there former deistic role of making certain NPCs avoid talking to you like you're the smelly, pimple-faced kid at the back of the school bus that likes to show off his collection of supposedly stolen junk.
One of the big points in the E3 demo was the various ways in which a character can be “leveled up.” One of the most interesting was earning favor with the gods. How can players earn the favor of the gods? And what can cause them to lose that favor?
Stieg: The gods are notoriously capricious and demand things of the player fairly regularly—if the player calls upon the gods too often those gods will become irritated with him; to please the gods the player must perform quests or render tribute at temples.
