Hmm. On the usenet computer strategy group it's described more as training
*parenthood*. You have to teach your worshippers and your "creature" (a kind
of agent). The problem is, they start very stupid and you have to do a lot
of things like potty-train your creature and teach it not to eat beach balls
(no, I'm not kidding).
Not personal experience, but that's a major part of what gets discussed.
very amusing to read, but doesn't sound very "godlike".
