One idea for the differences between summoned avatars and god comming to earth avatars is that it costs alot of god-points (i forgot the real name) for a god to come to mortal plain at will but if they are summoned it costs little or no points. This way if a lesser god wants to make it to mortal plain he can get some sap to help him out. But the elder gods have enough points to do it but at a great cost. I would also like to stress that it should be very hard to summon a god. Special componants are needed (like in conan it was that horn thing and it had to be placed on the statue at a certian time) and a good well learned priest should have to be there. Im sure there are more ways to make this hard for mortals to do but i can't think of any at the moment. Joshua 'hook' corning hook@majik3d.org
