    • Characters have the normal five Aspects for Fate Core.  High Concept, Trouble and three others.
  • Approaches
    • Gods and Monsters uses approaches such as found in Fate Accelerated. One +3, two +2, two +1, and one +0.
      • Bold - Great deeds and fanfare. Making yourself the center of attention.

      • Bold and Subtle are opposites.
      • Clever and Mighty are opposites.
      • Wise and Swift are opposites.

      • This is usually the highest valued approach in each pair.

    • As normal for Fate Core and Fate Accelerated, you have 3 Stunts and 3 Refresh.
  • Boons
    • Each character has a Tier-1 Boon that provides two benefits.
      • A low-level persistent benefit related to your god's concept: see in pitch darkness, minor illusions, invulnerability to fire, deep pockets filled with odds and ends, a halo, etc.
      • Gain a weak stunt that is based on this: Because I am [something related to your god's concept], I can spend a power point stored in my stations to get a +1 bonus when I [choose one: Boldly, Subtly, Mightily, Swiftly, Wisely, Cleverly] [choose one: attack, defend, overcome, create an advantage] while [describe a circumstance.]
  • Geasa
    • Each character has a weakness known as a geas. There are two options.
      • Your god takes a -1 penalty when doing something that their nature resists.
      • Your god is entirely barred from a certain course of action unless there is an aspect on the scene that allows them to do it.
  • Stations 
    • Each station can hold one power point.
    • Each character has two stations. One community and one sub-region.
      • The community represents the race or people you have created. 
        • Multiple characters can share the same community.
        • A sub-region is a particularly sacred place that is connected to a character. 
          • Only one character can claim a sacred place at a time.
