Enhancement- Demigod and God

Increasing from Hero to Demigod is a big deal, but there are not a whole lot of mechanics attached to this transformation in terms of requirements.

Demigod
- Apply seven points in attributes. Unlike Hero, these attribute points may be spent in any manner you so choose.
- 5 points to spend on epic Attributes (one for one)
- 5 points to spend on Purviews (one for one)
- 5 points on skills (one for one)
- 5 points to spend on Relics
Relics have more restrictions then they do at character creation, but it’s mostly a difference of ‘would your patron give you this’ then anything else. Talk to your ST :)

When a Scion has a legend of five, he may use his divine parent`s associated purviews without needing a relic. If he does this method, however, his legend is one dot lower for that Purview`s mechanics. This is in regards to all things: level of boons, range or intensity of power, comparative legends, etc.

As I’m running a quicker based game then John intends. I do not have a problem with you spending your character’s Demigod upgrades in a manner that is more efficient in the long run. You may, for example, you may spend five of your attributes on raising your strength to ten; however, the rules for accessing your increased strength apply as per normal (it may not be exceeded by your legend, but when your legend raises, your strength is already there, waiting for you.) The same is true for boons, epic attributes, and skills.

Final note on Demigod, which is a ‘William Rule’, At Demigod, your character is now awesomely divine and coming into his own divinity. Your character now has an extra ‘associated purview’ or ‘associated attribute’ which differs from your parent. This new association must be a) agreed by your ST (me) and b) something your character has been putting some of his own merit into, something that your character has been working toward that differs your character in some way from your parent. For character’s who already have six associated powers, this means, at Demigod, you may, if you wish, swap out an associated purview for a new associated purview or an associated epic attribute for a new associated epic attribute.

God
To Become a God

There are a few things to note about becoming a God. The first is that you are required to have at least two cults at two different areas with a distinguished center of worship (though this is a bit mutable in the case of some potential Gods), with each cult having specific myths and legends associated with you, and each cult needs to have at least 10 individuals with the same fatebinding rating of 10. These cults do not necessarily need to be positive or traditional (but it’s certainly easier), they can be cults who have rites in order to keep you away, but you do need to have some cults.

Before you apply the God template, you need to have at least three epics in all mentals and socials attributes (except for the appearance attribute, which only requires you to have two). You also need to have at least four epics in all your physical attributes, before you apply the god template. One of these nine attributes can be considered ‘a by.’ John’s site suggests that you have at least five epics in your physicals, but I’m not overly concerned about such things as you guys tend to be pretty lucky compared to me. That being said if I kill your character when they are a god and you only have four physicals across the board, I’m not going to lose any sleep about it. However, if you’re playing a combat character, or even a semi combat character, it’s highly, highly suggested that you have at least five in all your physical epic attributes as a semi-combat character and at least six or seven in all of your physical epic attributes if you are a full-time combat character; you’ll need it. The in character reason is that your body, mind, and soul need to be ‘sturdy’ enough to survive the process of becoming a being made entirely out of Ichor. The storyteller reason is that you need that amount of divinity to survive the trials and tribulations of being a God, by the skin of your teeth.

You need to have one virtue at 5 dots and one virtue at four dots. Neither of these virtues need to necessarily be your pantheon ones, but they need to be present. Fate requires that you be heavily associated with concepts and constructions and above human restraints and choices.

You need to have at least three purviews bought up to the maximum amount before you can become a god [A Level seven purview for when you become Legend 8]. One of these purviews can be your Pantheon specific purview. If you’re a Greek and want to max out a lot of Arete instead, after the first Arete … every two maxed out Arete counts as an additional purview for purposes of attaining Godhood. This means if you want to be a God of nothing, but Arete: you’d need 5 maxed out Arete.

You need to have at least six abilities at either seven or eight before you can ascend.

NOTE: VASTLY INCOMPLETE.
I’m serious, the bottom section is incomplete

Increasing your character from Demigod to God is a huge freaking deal and a time consuming process.
God

- – Apply nine points in attributes. No single attribute category (physical, social, or mental) may have more than 4.
- Add one dot to Epic Strength, Epic Dexterity, Epic Stamina and Epic Appearance (either positive or negative)

- 5 points to spend on epic Attributes (one for one)
- 5 points to spend on Purviews (one for one)
- 5 points on skills (one for one)
- 5 points to spend on Relics
Relics have more restrictions then they do at character creation, but it’s mostly a difference of ‘would your patron give you this’ then anything else. Talk to your ST :)
