Ghost

stories about the gods. romans Greek Egyptian I like them I've read a few on here and there isn't really a tag for them. god like power stories too. demi gods also work I'm a big fan of mythology.

@Ghost

I haven't found a good story involving gods.

Most of the stories like these either tend to move too fast without development or blow way out of proportion.

@Ghost

The Phil Brown stories - "second time through" are Gods/Aliens and the underlying theme is mythology rather than alien.

ustourist I've read them all up to the point he's their great just a bit slow coming out though.

Unfortunately they have been a bit slow recently, but I think he has good reason for the delay....
This is from his blog:
"That being said, my heart is failing... Again.(4 Bypasses, 2 stents, the first time).
This time, for those of you who've been there, the mitral valve is slowly giving out. They can do another open heart operation and replace it with a pigs valve, but I am dragging my feet on that one."
He then explains why he is dragging his feet and it is understandable.
Hopefully his health will improve and he will be able to continue, because the story does give the impression it is already mapped out as to the what, where, when and how and, as you say, it is a great read.

I have a story out called Son of Chronos. http://storiesonline.net/s/73034

It's a superhero/CB story where the base source of super powers is that there were real beings behind a lot of different cultures gods, being who pissed in the human gene pool. If enough of that remnant genetic material from the gods ends up in one person, they get powers.

Check the codes before you start reading it though, there is quit a bit of squick bait in the story.

It's also a work in progress.

I have another story in progress that I'm not posting yet and don't know if I will post that also involves god-like beings (or at least one such being). If you contact me directly, I might consider using you as a beta reader for that story when it's ready.

Rotedrachen's two stories 'Retreads' and 'Retreats Part Deux' are about the involvement of the old Norse gods with some people sent back as do-overs to attempt to change the coming destruction of the world. Good stories but a little over the top.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for but might look at Kalliste by Bruce Bretthauer. However it is on BTFH site. The following is a link to the story: http://www.beyondthefarhorizon.net/phpBB2/chapter_list.php?s=152

Enjoy.
Cheers

Retreads by Rotedrachen has Norse gods.
Lawod the Bloodby Robberhands -- invented pantheon.
Dragon by Fick Suck.

ustourist: yeah I've checked his blog too and was sad to hear he's having a rough time and hoping things got better for him.

lonelydad: retreads is awesome and I've read through them both twice maybe 3x already lol.

rustyken: thanks I'll check that out and let you know if I liked it.

samuelmichael: I'll take a look but I may have read both of the ones you mentioned but I don't recall them right off hand so maybe I got some new stuff to read thank you.

thanks for the recommendations keep em coming I tear through stories on a daily basis. so the longer the better...usually lol. magic in a modern setting or not also works for me. space, time travel, abilities, trinkets and what not of power. all good stuff.

I came across this one by accident and thought it may be of interest.
wordytom - Children of the Gods
No idea of the content apart from the summary below:
Synopsis: Melissa and Mark were a pair of off the charts geniuses with a special heritage that meant they were either going to rule the world or die trying. What can a pair of teens do when they discover they are truly Children Of The Gods?

There was one that I liked but don't know the name. Kid goes to museum and breaks the statue of Eros and he grants him powers. The kid then becomes a priest of Eros having sex with people to cure them of STDs.

You may be thinking of my story, "Priapus' Curse." Pirapus was one of the major sex gods of the Greeks. He also protected travelers. I never did figure out that connection. I'm sorry that I don't know how to make a link to it.

Vax has some stories of god-like powers.

The problem with xanxia is that theres alot of cliche out there.

The first story you'll read will be a breathe of fresh air, the second one you will recognize minute similarities, the third one, you'll be able to predict the flow of the story.

But then again, all genres have cliches just like how i try to avoid cliche mc stories and cliche japanese manga.
