Having read the 36 Lessons of Vivec, I have the idea for another character. A god running from his past and in desperate need of some resolution. As far as powers go, it'll be reality warping, but with a more mythological/fantasy spin. More magical and whatnot. Additionally, this character actually will fit the overall existential structure of the roleplay this time round.

I'd say more, but I feel that would be spoiling what could be explored IC.


Oh? Interesting.

en.uesp.net/wiki/Morrowind:The_36_Les… The actual information on the text.

newwhirlingschool.com And a website that actually does a good bit of theorycrafting and analysis on said fictional texts, including how they have parallels in irl spiritual and religious movements regarding themes and ideas.

Just leaving this here for anyone who wants to interact with Mazius. I'll have the gate lead him to wherever you are if you like.

Ah, thanks. I don’t check the OOC often, so I missed this.

Wherever you want Mazius, he now is. I just wanted him to exit the gate already.

Well it's back and working now, but for a while there it just didn't want to establish a connection.

Oh and can I get a quick rundown on what Nemid wants again? I may or may not consider throwing in another character at some point to act as his ally, depending on if a certain level of time control is allowed or not.

Nemid's goal, reasoning and such is that he comes from Brinkspace, which is the fringe area between Existence and Outside, and his people have fallen under some sort of undisclosed level of tyrannical control by an unknown force. He left to take power from other realities, and came back to Existence after doing so to try and absorb it and gain the strength needed to fight back against his people's oppressors.
TL;DR: He's trying to absorb Existence into this crystal-esque object in his head for power.

I see. Well depending on the level of time fuckery allowed, I might just have a character who's willing to help him in that goal, since said character sees Existence's absorption as no real problem since he can just time travel into the past repeatedly and live out his life in the years proceeding the event.

Assuming it isn't retroactively absorbed that is.

Otherwise I do have another idea for a power for the character, but in that interpretation he'd probably be harder to convince since he'll actually have something to lose. The power in this instance is just like, battle precognition and nothing more than that really, beyond like Captain America level physical capabilities.

Expanding on this idea, I might do something with infinite resurrection, a concentration based precognition, a form of battle precognition, and superhuman physiology.

From the perspective of what would actually happen, my intuition is that on the scale of Existence, total absorption would also include the absorption of spacetime, which wouldn’t leave much to go back to. On the other hand, assuming that is what would happen, he doesn’t have to know that.

But I wonder if absorbing spacetime means absorbing all of it or just what fabric of it exists at the current moment, although I suppose that's more of a meta-time type thing.

Thinking on it though, the second idea and its expansion where he just doesn't stay dead might be better, although him siding with Nemid would either leave him in Brinkspace, trapped in Existence, or repeatedly resurrecting in the Outside itself. The last of which is quite hellish.
