-It can be killing or injuring a character without the player's express permission.
-It can be when they simply can’t be hit and dodge all attacks or anything for this matter aimed at them.
-It can also be using other characters that other people RP with. In other words, if you do not RP as
Legolas, then you cannot have Legolas say anything, or do anything, without the player's express permission.
The absolute worst is when they make out another character to be what they’re not, just to make their own character seem superior. They make others seem weak, screaming for help, when they’ve made it quite clear about their advantages and strengths. This is called power-play. It’s a strain of God-Modding, but instead of just being irritating, it’s offensive to boot.
Player A: Punches Player B
Player B: Dodges attack, grabs Player A and throws him. Player A flies at Player B, who warps behind him and slashes Player A in the back.
For fighting, it's being able to dodge everything and always hit your opponent. For other things, like using something that takes over someone's mind, it's saying that you take over their mind and do this or that to them without allowing them to figure out if they can defend against it.
Being a God Modder is a sign of douch baggedry and makes it to where other player's do not want to rp with you.
Person A wins the fight and harms person B because person A made it impossible to hit him, then he made it to where B was affected by everything.
Mental: person A cast's a spell on person B, now person B is under person A's control. Person A then tells person B to go commit suicide, person B is now dead.
Person A get's rid of person B do to god modding because they forced the other person to be affected by it and say how B reacted without letting B do anything.
**This term is often over used and misunderstood, due to the fact that it can be confused with an other meaning of the word "God Modding", which is a bannable high powered in-game hack that allows that particular player unbelievable power in the game, such as invulnerability, extreme damage and possibly the ability to Noclip (fly).
Gothran is surrounded on all sides by enemies.
Gothran pulls a gnomish grenade out of his pocket, throwing it down. He puts a shield on protecting him from the blast while the grenade blows all his enemies back! He then calls his noble dragon and quickly rides off into the distance cackling!
Godmodding and godmoding are often mistaken for being the same word or concept. However, godmoding (or power gaming) is, in fact, a separate concept with its own, distinct meaning.
Player B: Hey, that's godmodding, I never said Bob stepped forward!
Player B: Bob carefully steps over the trap as he approaches Alice.
Player A: Bob doesn't know there's a trap there! I call godmodding!
