a good way is to build up to become pope. when you become pope you automatically get 3 pope points. then the key is to find some temples belonging to a papal heir as they give you 2 PP when you destroy them (when you're pope) instead of 1.

if the number of players increases you can always make the top 5 be papal heirs which would give more people access to pope points.
unfortunately i think the current problem is that there aren't enough players. i think there's at least one idle player in the top 5. of course there are also lots of active players out of the top 5. go figure.
I used to spend more time building up, but since altarboys know where even invisible popes are, and Assmonster has figured out how to use fireworks, I have to work hard to stay out of the top 3 or 4. Since then it's been all about destroying temples for pope points.
Naturally, for non-QM's, the popeship is good reward for the risk, and those 3 pope points can add up fast. That's probably a good thing to shoot for.
