If sheep entrails could in any way be related to the weather, i.e. sheep trails only originate where it rains, then you could use it as an accurate model for discerning what the weathers going to be like. Either, sheep shit makes it rain, or raining makes sheep shit. Sheep don't shit "randomly" sheep shit after they eat, it doesn't rain "randomly" it rains after water collects in the atmosphere.

Interesting... I like the "screams for attention" part. If gods were real, what assholes they would be...

Neato! You really know how to hook a plot Mr. Dingo.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Thanks.

The main premise is of a world with multiple Gods interacting in human affairs. As a general rule the older the God, the more powerful and the less likely it is to directly intervene. The Godsmancer is the political figure who tries to interact and keep peace between religious groups. It's generally considered the worst job in the world as Gods are overwhelmingly indifferent to mortal laws.

This is really addictive writing. That's kind of the only way I can describe it.

I really really like that you're alluding to existing tension among fictional religions. It gets the mind hungry for explanations and keeps the audience captive. The stories I'm building for Eris Erotica are mostly meant to parody existing belief systems. It takes real nuts to make em up on the fly.

Awesome work!
