Religion is based on miracles, not magic.

So? We can witness some weird voodoo hoodoo stuff but this doen't mean gods exist.

Just because you're tapping into arcane powers from some alternative dimension doesn't mean there'll be pie in the sky.

I mean if the setting has an established understanding of how magic works even a non-wizard could still be skeptical of people who claim they don't get their powers from the arcane weave that holds the world together or whatever shit.

If people understand 100% how magic works on a setting, will it still be magic and not science or something else?

Jason Perez

Magic can be organized miracles, so no. People inexplainably could make things happen without an explanation from physics, but still under a set of rules. Example: some kind of circular drawing on the ground can be used to summon something that shouldn't suddenly appear.

"Magic" has a different meaning in most fantasy settings than in colloquial language. It's a natural force of some kind and not necessarily some obscure mysticism.

William Hall

Just because there's magic doesn't mean there's a God nor does it mean that if there is one, a man-made organized cult actually worships it directly and not some made-up facsimile.

What if you're a piemancer?

magic = you tampering with the environment without tools

magic would be science too, just like breathing

Alexander Brown

game has ghosts/gods that you see, talk to, or even fight
there are atheist characters

Grayson Ross
Grayson Ross

atheist character
takes reduced/no damage from magic

Aaron Wilson

That seems pretty normal.
Anyone can use magic, why would a character believe supposedly divine feats weren't just someone using magic?

Robert Morris
Robert Morris

game has gods show up in game and people are directly able to use magic based on the god's lent power
people still doubt they exist

Ryan Hernandez
Ryan Hernandez

Your fancy magician isn't a god just because he can lend out his tricks

Benjamin Robinson
Benjamin Robinson

god's power is based on the people's belief in him
atheists directly drain his power

Tyler Gonzalez
Tyler Gonzalez

name one (1) game that does that
and no, rejecting the gods is not the same as denying their existence so don't say some stupid shit like dwemers

Henry Young

That's just ridiculous user, you can't just conjure up pies.

Brandon Lopez

magic is gained by knowledge of the basic structure of the universe and how to control it

miracles are caused by some god who has unknown motives and will likely throw you under the bus as soon as it benefits them

Bentley Morris
Bentley Morris

game has paladins and priests that obtain tangible magic powers and strength from their religion
Character recognizes this and just pretends to worship a god to get a share of their powers

Connor Ross
Connor Ross

there is a mysterious an ancient form of energy flowing through the land that can be manipulated by intelligent and studious persons
therefor there is a big bearded guy in the sky judging everything we do

Wyatt Peterson

Leo Diaz

Colton Sanders

multiple accounts of the gods interventions with mortals
still an entire race of atheist

Robert Cox
Robert Cox

game has priests, paladins etc. that gain powers from a god
you can choose different gods for different powers

Charles Jones
Charles Jones

name 3 games

Michael Miller

A better example would be
setting has gods that are actively involved with the world
character is skeptical of religion

Luke Roberts
Luke Roberts

gods actually grant you tangible benefits from praying to them and occasionally fuck about with mortals for a laugh
you can even fucking talk to some of them
most of the population is functionally agnostic and mostly just pay lip service to whatever god their culture is most closely connected to
That always bothered me about TES. You'd imagine everyone would be pretty fucking devout if worship could actually cure diseases and grant blessings and such. Then again the gods don't seem to give that much of a fuck either, so maybe it's just something they do for the chosen one of whichever game it is.

Noah Barnes

powers based entirely on the users faith
lmao just fake it

Michael Stewart

THIS
Its so fucking retarded like jesus man are the writers just begging to put a self insert atheist type character in their games?

Joshua Green

You still need to throw a shekel to get cured. It's more of a service to them, rather than anything terribly spiritual.

Jeremiah Collins
Jeremiah Collins

what if its a god of trickery and if you are a sincere believer you get duped like the sucker you are

Jacob Rogers
Jacob Rogers

they arent exactly the most active gods
there is debate about whether or not they are even alive anymore

Aaron Rivera
Aaron Rivera

Magic does not mean gods exists.
Even if it was an obvious connection, you know retards like creationists exist in real life, right?
Some people get off on denying reality.

Evan Gray

neverwinter for one.

Nicholas Jackson

God exists
but can be killed with swords and fireballs

Isaac Hughes
Isaac Hughes

Not a game but some of the charaters in the Discworld denied the existence of gods even though it was well known they existed.
The gods did not mind though, outright ignoring the god was as good as belief.

Lincoln Cox
