Ascension: The event of an individual rising to godhood. It is most often triggered by an extremely powerful moment in the individuals life, most often tragedy. Ascension is extremely rare and only happens every few centuries or so. Even rarer cases have happened in less time. When a person ascends they have the right to challenge the current god of the nation they ascended in for control of that nation. However if the new gods power is not enough to defeat the old god, they are often destroyed or forced into servitude. The new god will usually wait for their power to increase before issuing the challenge. There have been cases of new gods working with the old gods instead of challenging them. However this is usually until the new gods power eclipses that of the old god. Those born from gods have a higher chance to ascend then the average person.
