Some Reasons Why Polly Is Better Than All Other Gods Put Together

Other gods are braggarts.

Other gods claim credit for everything in the universe–often literally. They say they created it, they control it, they own it. You? You’re nothing! Less than nothing, really. They even claim credit for creating you, even though they know your parents had something to do with it. They’ll even quarrel with other gods about who’s responsible for what. The Xian god even denies the other gods exist, claiming he’s the only one and all the others are false. Can’t stand the competition, I guess.

Polly is much more modest. She’ll admit she was there to help get things in order–but she knows the creation was a rush job, and is nothing for anyone, god or mortal, to brag about.

Other gods are bullies.

Other gods tell you to do what they say, or else. If you don’t do things exactly the way they want you to, you’ll get punished in all sorts of nasty ways. You’d think, with them being so powerful and everything, it wouldn’t matter what you do. Hell, if they’re so powerful, why do they need you to do their bidding? But they insist you have to be their slave and do everything they want.

Polly doesn’t boss people around. She has her own stuff to do. If you want to help her, that’s cool. If not–well, it’s your life.
