Update #01 – Is there anything for us mere mortals?

Yes, there is! Though most of the content in Ascension is geared for epic gaming, there is some content available for lower-tier games. Such as:

  • Relics and Artifacts: The epic items are presented in a format that is usable by mortals and gods, with the power of the items increasing with the power of the wielder.
  • Deities: Each deity entries has a section on their church and clergy. This section will include the typical classes of the clergy, cleric domains, extra spells granted, and sometimes new spells, class features, feats, or boons. 
  • Epic Monsters: Not all the monsters presented will be god-level threats. There will be monsters in the CR 21-30 range (including avatars of each god). That can still be a nuisance to a god and a real pain to mortals.
  • Minions: There will be, on occasion, entries and stats for servitors (typically CR 10-25 range) of the gods and other epic entities. For example, the first issue provides lore, stats, and art for warden archons as the prime servitors of Sealtiel, the Defender.

      Glad to hear it Paul! I tend to dream in the realms of deities, but where would they be without their faithful supports? We've got to give them some love too!

      OK, now I am really on board. I've wanted to do something like this myself (but would be no good at god-level stats). But very interested in creatures, feats, subclasses, heralds, and items associated with each of the deities :) Awesome!

      Yes, a lion god if I remember correctly.

      Nobanion is a God from 2ed D&D. Part of FR Pantheon.

      Yes, Nobanion is FR legal.

      I have a question. Can Nobanion be a FR again?
