Greater Gods are the gods of gods, creators and annihilators of entire pantheons. A God can never advance to become a Greater God unless he manages to defeat and kill the Greater God of his own pantheon (or is promoted by his Greater God). This restriction does not apply for those who have advanced into the Godhood classes through the Plane of Trials. A Greater God keeps the weakness he had as a God, and it is an almost impossible task to figure out what this weakness is and exploit it without being defeated first. There is only one Greater God in any Pantheon, and he knows the weaknesses of all the Gods below him.

Pantheon:
A Greater God can create his own Pantheon at level 1. At this point, he can promote 4 Gods, 16 Demigods and 80 Paragon beings. He can double this number every Greater God level if he so chooses.

Creation:

As a Greater God grows stronger, he can create more and more until he reaches the point where he can create his own planets and planes of existence. At this point, he must either do so and emigrate his Pantheon there or wage war upon any Greater Gods currently sharing his current plane of existence.

Fighting a Greater God:
Surviving a Greater God encounter grants 50k xp pr. demigod level + 500k xp pr. God level + 5 mill xp. pr Greater God lvl.
Defeating a Greater God grants 1k xp pr. HD + 100k xp pr. Demigod lvl + 1 mill xp pr. God lvl + 10 mill xp pr. Greater God lvl + 1 xp pr. hp.
Killing a Greater God grants 1 mill xp pr. Demigod lvl + 10 mill xp pr. God lvl + 100 mill xp pr. Greater God lvl.
This xp is only granted if you face a fully fleshed Greater God fighting at full strength with an intention to kill.

A Greater God advances through 20 levels, at which point he is absorbed into the cosmos and becomes part of all things. Once you become a Greater God, you stop gaining xp by conventional means. Instead, you get 1% xp every year for as long as you have followers. In, addition, you can choose powers which increase your xp gain.

Every level as Greater God grants:
+10 hit/AC/dmg (physical attacks)
+1 on all ability scores
+10 Caster levels
+10 DR/all
+10 SR/all
+50% MR
+1000 hp (no con bonus)
+10.000 followers

In addition, each level offers its own abilities as well as the chance to chose a Greater God power:

1 Create Pantheon, Create any Relic
2 Locate: Anything/-one anywhere
3 Create: any HD creature
4 Kill: Any being anywhere or any Demigod on same plane.

19 Promote: Promote 1 God into a Greater God. This removes you from your own Pantheon, and is the second last step towards being One with the Universe.

136: Crusade: Your followers will amass an army and wage war against the country of your choice. You can make them wage new wars every 5 years. Each Crusade lasts for 4 years (travel time included, both to and from the destination, so if it takes 2 years to travel there, they won’t have time to actually do any warfare). 1d100% percent of your followers will participate every time, and 1d10% of the defending army will die every month during the war. For every defender that dies, 2 of your followers will die. If they manage to kill off all defenders, they will establish a new kingdom there in your name (50% of the crusading followers will settle down while the rest go home). Your religion will be the official religion, and 25% of the surviving population will convert (50% of the population in a country will be part of the defending army when any followers of a Greater God come crusading).
137: Your followers do not need to memorize their spells, but use the ones best suited to the situation.
138: Your followers who reach lvl 20 can no longer die from old age.

148: Bonded Mount: Your followers gain a bonded mount in the same way as AD&D 2nd Edition Paladins.
149: Your followers can own wear a maximum of 3 magical items, but all spells are free actions.
150: You are impervious to all damage and effects from any source (including other Greater Gods). In essence, you are indestructible. However, half of your followers die immediately and you die if all of them perish later on (unless you have advanced to a lvl 20 Greater God meanwhile – and become one with the cosmos). If your HP/AC/etc. is tied to your follower count, you will take damage/effects from loss of followers.
151: You gain +1% XP every year for as long as you have followers. This ability can be chosen several times.
