Author Comments (if any)

This is an adversarial game without losers. Revel in that and make up your own goals. Adversary, do not hold back. Shower them with gifts and terrors. Marked, enjoy how it feels. You will be adversary soon enough. Let people interpret and express what they think that “humanity” and “godhood” means.

This game is inspired by Epidiah Ravachol’s “Swords without master” If you like my game, try his game. It will blow your mind. and The two web comics “Ava’s Demon” and “Kill Six Billion Demons”. Read them for inspiration if you want. You won’t regret it - guaranteed.
