Still, there's a relatively easy way to get those weapons to affect gods. It won't be the best solution, but Demigod status exists for a reason.
And I didn't anticipate it at all. A couple of deities have decided at practically the start of time to build a deity killing space ship... It is kind of unprecedented...
But it makes sense in its own way. A deity has cosmic power at their fingertips. Even if they somehow lose a fight, they're one censure away from removing the annoying mortal.
It's up to the God in question how fair they should be. A God of honour and valour may decide to eschew the greater part of their divine strength to give their challengers a better chance. A God of battle for the sake of battle might do the same. A God of torture might pretend to, only so it can dash their hopes at the last moment and crush what remains of their psyche...
Velharan wouldn't fight a mortal, maybe erase their memories and revert them to childhood and send them off to be raised by monks thus granting them a second chance.
Merry Happy New Year!
