What about the ability to bestow powers upon mortals? Is that an inherent Godly ability or is it restricted to only some gods?

It's for any God that can get a mortal to spend their own points on a Power with a Limitation "Only to serve the Deity's Purposes"

Does the God have any actual control over their river? Should they have powers to reflect that? If the God were the actual river, the ability to control its flow might be considered analagous to the power of humanoid characters to move about.

The Deity is built as an AI and assumed to be Extradimensional - on a Higher Plane even in the mechanical sense.

 

When He manifests, the avatar is STR 20, DEX 21, DEF 33 and twice hardened, but should only have a few BOD points.

 

Note that the only way to destroy Old Man River is to destroy the river itself but if deprived of worshippers and places of worship his power would be severely curtailed.

Skills

10 Master of Destiny: "Computer Programming" 18-

Notes: Because this God is bought as an "AI" it technically needs a "Programming" skill to program itself. The skill is bought twice at a high roll so that if it were ever to fail, another roll could be taken immediately. There should be a less than one in forty thousand chance of a God doing anything but what They want to do. In essence, this is paying 20 points to be considered completely self-willed.
