    Lightbulb Chess God

    Idea: a god of board games like chess or shogi. Ult sends the user into the sky like Rama's ult, and allows the user to move allied (and enemy?) gods anywhere on the map and giving them buffs. Escape could be a substitution move that sacrifices a pawn that fights until death and slows the enemy until the user can escape. Offensive moves could include sending a piece forward to attack enemies in a line, and a piece that leaps and deals aoe damage. Both of these moves would leave behind a minion that would fight any enemies that come near. The god itself would be a very squishy mage or hunter, who would stay out of the middle of combat.

    It'd be a squishy mage(king piece). We can't have an ult where you literally move people, so his ult would be he summons his Queen.

    The leaping minion attack would be his knight, straight line is his rook. The escape could be his bishop.

    Basic attacks could be pawn minions, though how exactly to have it work is the questionable part. I guess the easiest way would be to chuck em like Sylvanus basics.

    Regardless such a god is never going to enter smite since it isn't a part of an actual pantheon.

    Hi-REz only add gods from REAL mythologies of REAL cultures. there is some mythology when this god could be? i doubt.
    TOP 3 most stupid things i've ever see in this forum:
    she can do 1000 dmg at level 3 by just her 2-and passive
    her 3 should be more like medusa moving backwards movement penalty reduced only by 50%
    Her ult now is her 2 but with lower damage but same cooldown!

    The Homestuck webcomic could be considered to have chess pieces as gods.

    Smite does actual gods from pantheons, not made up ones.
    A good idea, but not for this kind of game

    I mean you can affix a god to this idea and appropriately add lore references to make it fit. Right now I'm thinking this can fit Omoikane or Circe.
    Actually back to Smite but my love for the forums isn't really the same anymore. May most likely not post god concepts again.

    Since forums are dying, feel free to join the official smite forum discord where most retired members chill.

    Doesn't have to necessarily be a god, there are plenty of characters in smite that aren't gods, and there is a mythological character embodying chess, Caïssa.

    Don't know if Caissa would happen since she was created by an english poet in the late 1700s.

    And generally speaking the gods cover a large swath of area or were a historical figure/creature:
    Nox: Night and darkness
    Odin: The All Father
    Discordia: Chaos
    etc

    Having a god pertain to a specific thing such as chess would be too much and severely limit the kit. Better fit would be strategical board games, but that's too long of a title (lol) and once again it's not a figure rooted in a certain mythology or historical epic.
