The biggest issue I have with RPing deities is that the deities always come across as entirely to humane, to close to us. When I think of something vast, powerful, and truly divine, I venture into the Lovecraft mythos. Yes, I know that is my bailiwick, but bear with me. Anything that lives above the human mortal level of existence isn't going to be magic Jesus in a toga, or wearing a winged helmet. These are the weak and whey blooded gods of Earth, the flimsy creations and caricatures of man.
To venture away from Lovecraft, the El Drazi from the Magic the Gathering Zendikar block and fantastic representations of the Divine.
They are absolutely not human, and if you were to interact with one, you would be destroyed. Insert the parable about whatever hoochie Zeus was banging who demanded that the leader of the gods show her his true appearance, so he picked his SMALLEST and LEAST impressive lightning bolt, manifested in front of her, and charred her to a Looney Tunes crisp.
So, in dealing with something truly divine, you are never actually going to interact with it directly, you will deal with an agent of an agent, possibly of several other orders of agents before you get to something small enough, and compact enough to interact with something as minuscule as a mortal being.
You there, ant-thing. You are the ant I have picked. I dont give a s**t what rationalization you come up with to explain why I picked you, I want you to go tell all the other ants in your nest to pack their stuff and get out of my yard. The HOA has a regulation against untreated ant mounds, and I don't like pouring poison on my yard.
Ant spreads gospel of the MegaSkyAntGod, is killed by the other ants for being insane.
Is proven right when six ant generations later, ant-icide poison rains from the heavens.
Ant religion is carried out by the survivors who barely survive to found a new mound a few dozen feet away in the treeline.
I think I was going somewhere with that, but it seems like a good place to stop.
Here, have a picture of Emrakul, the Aeons Torn (heh, EAT)
