However that is still plenty powerful.

Foreign sources report that Anthony has been spotted in India. He has bought property in the city of Vrindavan He is reportedly taking in widows, and has opened a blacksmith shop. He is also reported to be in LA at the same time. Further reports indicate he has built a shrine called the Temple of Ten Thousand Sorrows in Japan near Mt. Fuji. The Japanese government does not comment.
Anthony has been talking up a Greyhawke custom of "Noble Obligation", and is backing the ARM PAC to teach people about it, and to push for its adoption.
Anthony has started a business within the United States as The Allion Group. He has acquired controlling interest in Walmart, changing the name to Allion's. Allion Group is also pulling the strings at Soni Corporation, from Japan on down. Neither acquisition looks to have been bad for anyone. He owns a house in Beverly Hills and bought Bob Hope's home in Palm Springs.
Anthony is backing the Department of Super Heroes with equipment, aid in setting up their lairs, and moral support. He has taken little action as a hero himself except to destroy the summoning statue held by Marcus Fox. He likewise is giving aid and assistance to the Collegium Arcane, but is not directly involved with them. He has stated that his throwing around divine power would be a Bad Thing right now. He keeps a low profile.
The city of Widows. The place where widows that have been thrown away, widows of any age end up in India. Anthony as the protector of women and children abhors this. His presence there is to aid these women and their children. In countries with a strong polytheistic culture Anthony can work more readily as a god.
In other examples once he has established The House of Crafters they move out into the world to aid the needy, the throwaways and runaways that other cultures produce they take in and nurture without judgment. As a religious based organization they do not proselytize. They are what they are. They are here to help. You do not have to join them or mouth words to get help.
Aokigahara Park is a wild forest north and west of Mt Fuji in Japan. In ancient times it was the supposed haunt of ghosts and goblins. It was a popular place to abandon the old and very young. Today it is one of the most popular suicide locations in the world.
Anthony's shrine, the Temple of Ten Thousand Sorrows, seeks to interrupt this. He on one hand wishes to attract those that would commit suicide and to if possible turn them away from that. If turning them away is not possible to turn a useless death into a sacrifice. It has worked well in other places, and he is establishing that here.The reticence of the Japanese government is due to very mixed feelings on the matter. On one hand, he is performing a useful service that others have not. On the other hand he is not one to seek governmental permission. On the gripping hand, it is not the place of the government to tell Kami what to do.
