Gods, undoubtedly an arrogant title, and yet it is one which was held deservedly by thirteen beings. Some of the gods were good and just, some evil and vile. Whether they were the good or the evil, all knew their might. These beings created our multiverse, They watched it grow, They nurtured it and it’s many peoples, it’s many worlds, until the void came.
It was by our actions, the actions of the mortals our gods so loved, and they did love us, if some in a demented authoritarian way, that their downfall was sown. The barriers they had long erected to keep dangers out of our multiverse were impenetrable, but only from the outside. Some individuals, in a quest for power, opened a crack to peer through into the unknown. They believed that our gods had hidden it from us to keep us from attaining the power to rival them. Little did they know those barriers were for our protection.
The void saw us, and it’s infinite inhabitants took hold through the crack before it could be sealed, tearing the barriers protecting our existence apart. For times uncountable our gods led the charge, they United all the peoples of the multiverse, old grudges fading away. Men and monsters together held the line, Demons fought side by side with angels, elves and orcs were bound in blood in the fight against the consuming dark, and the battle was slowly won. But once again we were our own downfall. Promised power by the Eldritch some betrayed us, and the multiversal alliance was broken. Our gods were left to hold back the dark alone. They did not stand a chance.
One by one our gods died until only one remained. Alone against the void, they had an idea. Taking hold of the divine essence of themselves and that of their dead siblings they destroyed themselves and sent out a divine light which drove back the void. The peoples of the multiverse rejoiced, but knew the void would return, and that’s when they found the gods last gifts. From across existence were felt sparks of divinity, tiny motes of power and potential. Our gods are dead, but new gods have been born, billions of divine sparks spread across the multiverse, each a demigod just waiting for ascension. They may now only be demigods, but those who survive will find themselves the wall that holds back the tide of abyssal darkness. You are a demigod, what kind are you, and what will you do?
-You have Demigod physiology as the baseline. You may take other physiologies in powers/abilities so long as they aren’t transcendent in any way, your demigod status is where most of your power will come from.
-Each demigod has a domain or domains usually coinciding with their beliefs, personalities, and in general who they are. These can be basically anything such as death, love, good, evil, space, time, etc, but cannot be things such as everything, supremacy, perfection, or other OP “I win” domains. Nor can they be Eldritch, void, beyond, or nothingness or similar as that is the enemy you face,
-Your power grows over time and with worship/belief. The more people you get to pray to you, worship you, believe in you, trust you, fear you, love you, hate you, etc, the more powerful you grow. Even with trillions of worshippers it will take eons to become a god.
-You may be from any kind of world you wish, be it one of magic or science, democratic or authoritarian. You may also be whomever you want in this world, be it a beggar or a king. Just know the multiverses people are still shattered, old grudges have come back in force and it will be a near unwinnable war in itself to reunite the multiverse against their self-interest to fight the void.
-You may not take any Omni, absolute, almighty, meta, ascendancy, ascendant, adaptive, reactive, transcendence, transcendent, perfection, arsenal, defiance, derivation, lord, power/ability replication/learning/absorption/manipulation/ creation/destruction/transcendence/mastering or any growth/upgrading/augmentation/development abilities.
-Your powers need to generally fit with your domain though you can take powers unconnected to your domain reasonably such as supernatural condition(you’re a demigod) and similarly reasonable things, use common sense.
-When you become a god you will attain the ability to imbue mortals with aspects of your power as paladins, clerics, holy warriors, angels(or demons if your an ‘evil’ god), etc. Making more demigods is impossible excluding you reproducing with a mortal whom you truly love(otherwise won’t work) or destroying yourself completely to disseminate your essence.
-It will be a couple centuries, and possible millennia before the voids inhabitants recover and come back, but they will return in force. You must be prepared or they will annihilate the multiverse and consume it and everyone in it.
-There’s no winning this war, just surviving it. The void is infinite and so are it’s horrors, the most that can be hoped for is to drive them back out of the multiverse and rebuild the barriers which once kept them out. After that who knows, maybe see what your infinite multiverse has to offer, and there is more than just this multiverse, others exist out in the void with their own gods and protectors.
