Description from the packaging.

"Miracles are child's play. Earthquakes are serious fun." - Confessions of a Deity.

"The all powerful can perform miracles in their sleep. But omnipotence isn't what it used to be. These days, it takes awesome natural disasters to dominate a world."

"Two Deities in one world is one too many."

"Cruel ice, lush grassland, parched desert. With 500 worlds, a Deity's work is never done."

"You give them good land. You tell them when to farm and when to fight. You make them content beyond their wildest dreams. But then they become raging arsonists. What's a Deity to do?"

"Disasters are your divine prerogative- volcanoes, quakes, swamps. For stubborn non-believers nothing beats a flood for spring cleaning."
