The Strange and Terrible Gods of Hubris and New Weapons of Hubris

I’m having fun DCCifying my Hubris setting over from my OSR hack.  DCC just seems to strike many of the right cords for me, game and philosophy wise.

Earlier I converted the races in my setting to race as class (Kenku, Ekrask (Lizardfolk), Mutant, and Half Demon).  Now I figured I’d better get my gods converted to a more DCCable fashion (especially since our first DCC game is next Sunday and the Cleric needs to choose his god).

One things I wanted to do was keep the information on the gods short and sweat and not go on for paragraphs (or fucking pages!) about how the god does this and that and gets angry when people eat truffles in front of them…  blah blah blah.

I’m debating on whether or not I’ll put a small “the priests wear X and Y.” And maybe a SMALL single sentence or two about the god.  MAYBE.  Not sure yet.  I think everyone gets a good idea of who/want the god is and represents by their realm and alignment.
