** Fridge Brilliance, too, when you realize that Om learned everything he ever knew about being a leader from a shepherd. That had some downsides, sure (sheep are stupid, and need to be driven), but the book specifically mentions that he was "the kind of shepherd who had hundreds of sheep because he took the time to stop and hunt down one that had gotten lost."



* CMOHO Dhblah gets a small one by, upon seeing his God reborn and newly ominpotent, going up to him and asking for a business opportunity.

** Made doubly awesome by the fact that he manages to hit Vorbis squarely in the head with his lantern...despite Didactylos being ''completely blind''.

* The Omnian sailors of the vessel ''Fin of God'' go down with their ship. The captain is unsure what course to set, but after noting that foreign unbelievers not only have better lives but better ''afterlives,'' they go sailing off to see what they can find - the ghosts of men, the ghost of the ship, and ghost dolphins trailing behind.

* Brutha giving a subtle display of the open-mindedness that will make him a great prophet in his very first scene, noting that for all he knows, ''all'' tortoises talk, and they just never do it when he's around.

* The bit towards the end when Brutha makes ''his own god'', who he acknowledges could kill him at any time, yield to him, through nothing more than the power of his words - by ''pointing out that he had no power''.

* Despite the gratuitous amounts of outright awesome he shows later, Lu Tze's best moments are when he achieves his goals with minimal effort, like in this book where he changes the history of the entire continent by breaking off one lever.
** Not even, he changes history by causing the breaking of one lever.

sabotaging a small lever so it will break at a critical time.

** On top of that, Om did all that while he had only ''fifty-one'' followers. Gods with ''more'' followers (and it's difficult to imagine there weren't any there) couldn't stand up to him. Says a lot about the strength of those followers' belief right then and there.

** Leading to Brutha's CrowningMomentOfAwesome: When Brutha finds himself in the Afterlife Desert he find Vorbis still huddled, terrified, on his rock. Death reminds Brutha of who and what Vorbis was, to which Brutha answers: 'I know, he's Vorbis. And I'm me.' Then he takes his would-be nemesis by the hand and together they walk towards whatever awaits beyond the Desert.
