You are a demigod.

You are beset by the Fates.

You are on a quest.

You have a band of companions, demigods all.

You don’t want to die.

You don’t want to ascend to godhood.

The Godhood in Our Veins is a tabletop RPG for  3–6ish players, using the Powered by the Apocalypse game engine. One or more players serve as The Fates, the GM role of the game. Most players take on the role of semi-divine heroes on a quest together. They don't want to ascend to godhood or die, but if the quest goes badly they might have to succumb to one of those fates or another. Dying sends you to the underworld, unless your fellow demigods mount a rescue mission. Ascending to godhood means you shed your mortal concerns and join The Fates in GMing the game.

Is PayPal disabled on this item? It's the only way I have to pay on here.

It shouldn't be... can you let me know what kind of problem you're running into?

When I hit "Download Now" and it goes to the payment page, PayPal isn't there as an option, only "Pay with card"; I've checked other "Name your own price" games and they show both.

Thanks! Let me check what's going on there.

I think I resolved the issue, Kevin. Let me know if it looks right to you!

A PbtA game where you play as demigods and the Fates. I love how the mechanics reinforces the Greek mythology setting, with the Fates as the MCs. It is interesting to see this game forgo stats that are intrinsic to the character, but instead opt for stats that change with the character's status. (Your glory and fray affects the results of your roll, not how strong or fast your demigod is.)
