Im considering building into my game stuff for extra benefits of classes at 20th level and mechanics to destroy the campaign and the characters lives if they continue. Cos I really want to go back to a low level game but see how broken my current game can get.
I guess somehow every time you do something awesome you get a chance of drawing the gaze of the gods - some great doom where the gods will try to fix your destiny.
Roll on Apotheosis Each When You:
Defeat a mighty foe
Make a major campaign advance (save kingdom, find a thing, finish dungeon)
Destroy any monument or monster placed by a planar power
Rescue kingdom or world or plane from a threat
Operate artefact or control apparatus of the gods
Win a war versus a superior opposite aligned enemy

Each player would get own usually when alone over some time if possible. Possibly players contriving to cheat the gods of destiny will cause everyone to be entwined in each other messes. Getting to top tier game equals comic enemies out to get you or destroy you with their fatal love. A god might think they are helping you sending elder abominations from before the world loose at you.
