It's been months D: SORRY GUYS I keep meaning to get back to this it's just the next bit I need to make is a l o n g one so I keep not being able to finish it in one sitting. I think I'm just gonna write it up elsewhere then paste it here so I can work on it bit by bit.
On the PLUS SIDE, the delay has given me time to come up with SO many ideas. SO many.

Well I'm back. Remember, when you feel like giving up on something, remember why you started it!

Now to get my ass in gear I'm going to jump to picking your miracles, rest assured, red skin markings, horns, goat ears and fire-eating are all yours. ::)

You can pick three for free from each, you can get whichever ones you can get the rest later, and there are more you can get later that grow from these.

Now let's get started.

SPACE:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCm2j_Xla-Q


1: STAR BRIDGE
You can open a hole in space from anywhere you are to anywhere you've been. The cost increases based on distance and local conditions [planetary gravity makes things especially difficult]. This takes some time to initiate and can be blocked by some magical effects.

2: SPACIAL DISTORTION
You can knock enemy attacks or projectiles away, increase or reduce distance between you and anything nearby, increase or reduce the speed of you or another, or do all of the above things at once.

3: POCKET DIMENSION
In a feat worthy of a goddess, you twist space into a small world of your own design. You can draw existing things such as buildings or gardens into it if you please, and have the ability to increase its size over time, or even bequeath it to another.

4: OTHER PLANET
You have a mystical link to an entire other world, being it a ring world, a gas giant, a moon or asteroid adrift at the edges of the universe. If you please it can be barren, for you to create a garden on at your will, or even already inhabited. There seems to be an odd number of short, grey skinned servitor beings on a lot of worlds, perhaps left behind by other gods of space before you. You can travel between this world and your own at will, even bringing people with you too or from the world at your leisure.

5: MULTI-PRESENCE
You can be in multiple places at once! This universe-bending power gives you the power to summon space shadows, or copies, of yourself, from other dimensions at will, starting with a number equal to your Intelligence X Essence. These copies ARE you, you all see the same things, hear the same things, taste and eat the same foods etc. But you can control them from practically any distance, and with time and practice, make them increasingly physical, even using your powers.

DREAMS:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xN4_nZbFps


1: DREAM WEAVER
You can give any person you choose any dream you choose unless contested by another divine being, even giving multiple people the same dream at once to deliver a message. This dream can be beautiful, terrible, or any combination thereof, and don't be surprised if people are willing to listen to your demands more readily after a few weeks of dream therapy.

2: DREAM WALKER
With difficulty you can insert yourself, physically into a person's dream, becoming capable of interacting with their spirit while they're in it, and interacting with the environment as if it was a pocket dimension [it does actually create a pocket dimension with entrances over their ears for the duration of the effect]. You can talk with someone, or use miracles on them while they're in their dream with no visible consequences in the waking world, making this ability work quite well with Entertainment miracles, along with the Dream Weaver miracle.

3: DREAM WORLD
This miracle lets you create your own universe of dreams and wonder where your word and that of the sleeping beings who may make their way there with your permission is law. Here it is possible for you to render actual, and physical the dream stuff constantly pouring out of sleeping mortal's heads. Want to have a kennel full of nightmares? Go nuts! Want to make someone's literal dream girl? You can do that! Combining this miracle with Dream Walker lets you make permanent micro-dream-worlds inside the heads of others, with their permission as its an arduous job that takes some effort and tlc to do right.

4: DREAM-THINGS
This miracle lets you briefly force your own imagination onto reality, creating weird and unpredictable [by others] disruptions of normal logic. Suddenly you can walk on a wall which is now sprouting flowers? Ok! Suddenly the ground is rubbery to let people survive a fall from a plane without a parachute? Well I guess if that's what you say it must be so. This miracle costs dream stuff, but you can gather that from your loyal dreamers without too much hassle.

5: READ THE DREAMS
Everyone has a dream that drives them, whether they've stamped it down or enshrined it as their goal in life, their dream gleams somewhere in their soul. This ability lets you see these motivations, and when combined with Dream-Things can be used to pull a dream out of someone's head and show it to them! As you get better at this you can read more specific, smaller, harder to see dreams. Useful for if you want to know what someone's been dreaming about without you around!

NATURE:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKM-jgaOW2Y


1: THERE IS ENOUGH FOR YOU HERE
You can take whatever you need from trees and flowers. You can make tables, chairs, bowers, beds, clothes, weapons, blankets, baskets, food and drink. It can be tiring to make something too large from nature, but you have enough strength within you to make what you need when you need to, it's one of the gifts living things have, you just have more of it than most.

2: YOU CAN REST HERE
You can use nature to hibernate. You can tuck your head in under an oak and pull earth and turf over you as a blanket, or sink to the bottom of a river you make to sleep away a few centuries in. When you do so you must name a condition or conditions for your awakening. While you do this you may sleepwalk in the spirit, and even access the dreams of others if you have the Dreams theme [which you do] and the necessary miracles to do so with. While you sleep in this manner it's not that you don't need to eat or drink, you just get what you need forever if you have to. But take care that you don't join the legions of shaggy-old wood gods slumbering beneath beard-bushes the size of elm trees, there's too many things to be awake for my dear.

3: YOU CAN HEAL FROM ANYTHING
With this miracle your body naturally re-knits itself faster so long as you provide it with the materials. You can wither a tree to regenerate a point of health or rot a field or the corpses of a pride of lions to grow an arm back, but beware, as this drains the location you draw from, causing regrowth to occur much more slowly. You can also transfer this healing to those nearby or those who are praying to you with genuinely open hearts, minds, souls and spirits, or those with dream-worlds you have access to [perhaps with Star Bridge?], but this is slightly less efficient and has a slightly higher cost.

4: ANIMAL IMMUNITY
With this miracle no animal will willingly harm you unless starving to death or compelled to do so by a god of greater power than your own, and even then you can contest this. Animals that do attack you will do so with a penalty, and you can speak the languages of most animals to the degree that you can give them basic one-sentence commands without great feat of misunderstandings arising, it doesn't necessarily mean that they'll obey you though.
This also lets you draw a number of animals equal to your Essence X2 [more if small, fewer if large] to your side to serve you as loyal familiars, drawing their lifespan equal to your own.

5: AT HOME IN NATURE
You can command plant life to get out of your way, are immune to almost every form of natural poison and move swiftly and stealthily through even the thickest jungle. You never fail to track a target in an unspoiled location unless something interferes with its trail and you can declare a region up to your Essence X Survival miles in radius as your personal range, granting you the power to bar your enemies unimpeded access and hide yourself, others and important things within it more easily.

THE HOME:

Don't hurt each other.
1: NO FIGHTING IN THIS HOUSEHOLD
With this miracle you can render injuries, even from something as dangerous as a bomb-blast, non-lethal, and even trivial so long as they take place within your view. You can make an axe bounce off a neck or a sword stop on an apron, rolling pins and kitchen knives, forks in wall-sockets and knives in toasters are all things you can protect your loved ones from. Also you can do slapstick more easily!

You belong here dear.
2: YOU CAN MAKE YOUR HOME ANYWHERE
You read the name. This miracle lets you literally make a home wherever you want to. Whether its a cave or a home hole in the wall cafe, you can pick a place where you can reflexively activate No Fighting In This Household at will, where you can guide the moods of everyone within, even war gods or bloodthirsty demons, towards pacifism and calm emotions, and where you can complete small repairs with the snap of your fingers or the blink of one eye. But I recommend you don't do that last one, get the kids involved, they need to learn how to take care of themselves once you're gone.

Aaaand I have to do the rest tomorrow :I Sorry about the wait again but it's getting late and I can't decide how to word the next one right now, so I'll sleep on it. Goodnight y'all! Lots of love!
