I’m looking into canonical ways to ascend to godhood, looking for something similar to the Test of the Starstone in Pathfinder. Do you know of any more direct ways that are actually published? For the Realms, no.
To quote Elminster, "Many seek godhoods, for there are no shortage of fools in any world, but very few find it."
Personally slaying a deity has worked in the past, but beware existing deities returning the favour.#Realmslore
