On the Rocks

Showbiz

One of the ways that a god can influence the world is to have their image on show to the American people. Gods can influence people while they appear in movies, act on tv, sing songs, and even perform in variety shows or dance revues at casinos in Las Vegas. There are a number of fantastic show biz opportunities for individuals to plan and interact with.

The Professionals

Some gods aren’t performers themselves- they are organizers. These gods have a way of sizing up the talent of an individual and knowing if they have what it takes to sell records, to be plastered on movie posters, or to interact live with people in a casino. Being a showbiz professional means that you can audition talent and place them in various acts. You have access to songs and scripts and you know what combinations work and will go far and what combinations are destined to implode upon themselves.

The Talent

Every single god has talent and every single god has the potential to be amazing in at least one type of performance. Some gods fit into more aspects of showbiz. It is also possible that a character may start the game with singing aspirations and through interactions with other performers and/or an industry professionals but they may realize they are better suited to acting in a romance movie.

Being part of a group and participating in performances is a good way to earn quiddity to spend on existence and issues.
