Power Points, more often called "PP" are the measure of a gods power and how much they can do in a turn. Power Points will be distributed during the twice weekly resets performed by the administrators of the game.
The following will be a list of actions as well as an approximation of their effect. Their PP cost is reflected in the number that is part of their name, and ranges from 1 to 4. Gods may cooperate(split PP) on a single action to lessen it's cost for each. In each case you must be specific, such as outlining the uses/powers of an artifact. Every action has an action with the opposite effect with the same cost. It counts as the same action for purposes of PP generating Artifacts and Exarchs.
You may flavor the expenditure of power points however you wish, as long as the effect paid for and the effect gained are appropriate. Some actions, through creative use may also be used to produce some unexpected effects.
