  • How do these affect your general personality? - Like a celebrity hungry for the spotlight, Gozer will do whatever it takes to attain fame and followers.
  • How do you normally interact with your family/friends/peers? With your enemies/rivals? With people who work for you/report to you? With player characters? - Gozer is a huge JERK to everyone!
  • What impact have you made on the world? How have you shaped the local area? - The Cult of Gozer continues to grow to gain renown and worshippers and spreading chaos across the world.
  • Do you have any current problems that prevent you from being a bigger player on the stage? - Gozer is not a very trustworthy figure due to their chaotic nature, so they have very few allies outside their cult. So the Cult is not growing at so quickly a rate as Gozer would like.
