in chat, today this happened:
Sir Cinnamon - There once was a DnD Player / Who wished to be best goblin slayer/ For stats he rolled dice / The results were not nice / and now he's a humble brick layer
And I thought "wait, there was Pun-Pun, the Kobold, who ascended to godhood at lvl 1 in 3.5... but..."
Can a Pun-Pun actually be made in 5e?
Now, what is a Pun-Pun? Just an arbitrary Munchkin build? No, that is not what I wanted to go for. It's the self-made god-like being factor, that I am interested in. Arbitrary high stats are just one factor of godhood, what I always found most hilarious about the Pun-Pun-plan was the shenanigans that lead to him becoming a god or at least godlike being in the end.
Can a (non-divine1-intervention) ascension to (quasi-)Godhood happen at level 1? If not, what is the lowest level a Player Character can force its way into becoming a god or god-like-being?
1 - this is meant to include any higher being!
