Gapp, God of Fine Clothing: Often considered an elitist, Gapp and His priests make a point of being the best-dressed at any public function. The sense of style of His worshippers is as unquestionable as it is changeable, with new fashions tearing through His temples on a weekly basis. Gapp is a god who believes He is the best, and He knows how to dress properly for the position.

The most important of Gapp's commandments include: Thou shalt not go forth unclothed like the lesser beasts, unless My High Priest doth send you forth thus on My behalf, for infractions against My church such as over-dressing when in the presence of one holier than thou.

The current High Priest for Gapp is Juppie.

--Gapp finger information

Gapp grants the Mend and Cool rituals to His followers.

Fashions

More or less once a week, Gapp chooses a material, two colours, and a decoration to be stylish. The current trends can be found in Gapp's finger information, and they're important because Gapp's Totem item is a piece of stylish clothing. Gappics can also get a bonus to rituals by wearing three items of stylish clothing.

He announces it on the talker when the fashion changes:

(Gapp) Gapp, God of Fine Clothing wisps: I now favour habiliments fashioned from cashmere and enjoy the effect created using pearls.  Blue and mauve would look particularly fetching, too.
(Gapp) Gapp, God of Fine Clothing wisps: Darlings, you'd better work!

Things He's chosen in the past have been:

Materials Colours Decorations
  • cashmere
  • cotton
  • fur
  • linen
  • silk
  • suede
  • wool
  • aquamarine
  • azure
  • black
  • blue
  • cream
  • cyan
  • gold
  • goldenrod
  • green
  • ivory
  • maroon
  • mauve
  • orange
  • oxblood
  • purple
  • teal
  • violet
  • white
  • baggy clothing
  • beads
  • emeralds
  • glass jewels
  • jewels
  • pearls
  • rhinestones
  • sequins
  • shiny clothing

An item doesn't need to have all three properties at once to be stylish--one is enough.

Alignment

The ideal alignment for a Gappic is around 3 degrees good (or, just after the beginning of the "good" range). He will be merely "pleased" with you if you're from 0 - 3 or 4 - 6 degrees good.

Temples

Temples to Gapp can be found in:

  • Ankh-Morpork on the Street of Small Gods.
  • Bes Pelargic, just above the ground floor in the red tower (a little north of the river on the very east side of the city)
  • Djelibeybi on Deity Lane on the west side of the city
  • Genua at the south end of Darling Road in the southeast part of the city.
  • The Temple of Cool in the Ramtops/Uberwald area.
  • Ephebe on Flatulus Walk, on the south side of the Harbour Market.

The newbie chests are in the Ankh-Morpork and Genua temples.

Shops

Shops which sell Gappic items can be found in the Ankh-Morpork, Djelibeybi, and Genua temples, as well as in the Temple of Cool. You can also buy priestly items of your own deity from the charm peddler who wanders around the Imperial District in Bes Pelargic (mainly on Garden Walk).

NPCs

Various unnamed priests and priestesses of Gapp also wander around Ankh-Morpork.

Ritual bonus

Gapp's unique ritual bonus is granted to those who are wearing enough (possibly threeresearch) stylish items of clothing.

There is another, smaller one, for being in "stylish surroundings":

It seems very slightly easier to perform light because you feel comfortable in your stylish surroundings.

Gapp's passage room and Guido's room in the Temple of Small Gods count as "stylish surroundings". It's uncertain what else does.
