Karna most awesome servant in Apocrypha, both in power and style. A nuclear bomb worth of fiery raw power, perfect control of it, cool and chill from beginning to end, and a body naturally impervious to most forms of damage (Vlad's giant spikes when fighting in god mode still ricocheting off Kana's bare skin without so much as a scratch). And one of the best voice actors Japan has to offer ^ ^
Without the ubber cheat weapon that is Ea, Gilgamesh wouldn't stand a chance.
1 to 4 are the fundamental classics that make up "reality" in all its various forms, while 5 and 6 are the sparks that give purpose to reality.
Maybe it's the narrative itself that should be adjusted ?
Like refocusing it on the power itself and its relation with the character, what the character does with it and how, what are the consequences on him, the people he knows and the world at large, how the character gradually evolves with his decisions, how the world changes with them, the growing uncertainties that eventually arise, the character questioning their own decisions and the path they have chosen, the search for balance and lasting fulfillment, the answer they finally reach, the form this answer takes and the way it changes everything.
It does require a lot more thinking than big classics like "beat the Big Bad" and "save the world", but it sure would make for an amazing story where the concept of "overpoweredness" would find its true meaning and worthwhile narrative purpose.
There was some great stories like this, notably a "What If" DC story in which Superman decided to finally get shit done, and accomplished world-changing marvels while navigating much more subtle and interesting challenges than the conquer/destroy primitive threats that are the bread and butter of his career.
I imagine the typical vulnerabilities of each species would apply to the remaining bones, and lack of flesh would probably mean no healing/regeneration as well.
Skeletal vampires and were-something aren't really either though, they are really just skeletons. So only the Lich part functionally remains, the rest is just history.
Vampiric were-dragon I can picture, but Lich ? Aren't those skeletal archmages ? It seems incompatible with the other physiologies, which are biological in nature.
Transmutation does seem the best fit (turning something into something else). It is neither Creation nor Destruction, but has shades of both, destroying one thing and creating another in the same move.
A villainous God of Time would be nigh unstoppable, and the protagonists little more than toys in the palm of his end. It would take some Fairy Tail level Nakama Power for them to stand a chance.
Essentially yes, though applications and sub-powers may reach further than that.
You're welcome ^ ^
Temporal powers offer lots of possibilities, but are generally pretty classical (accelerate things, slow them down, suspend time, see/trave to the future or the past, rewind to previous states or advanced to later ones, etc.).
Being a God of Time would probably involve the creation and manipulation of timelines, which is definitely godlike in scale and nature. What sort of purpose would the character pursue through it though ?
They are typicaly protectors of the status quo, so perhaps your character could be the opposite, and find their purpose in the search of the perfect universe, endlessly creating new timelines and manipulating history in pursuit of this very elusive goal, that seems to keep changing every time the users gets closer, as their perspective and understanding of it gradually changes with each new iteration.
Sounds like a good basis for storytelling, encompassing the setting's evolution and the character's own journey.
Suited for a Goddess of Love who inherently rules the field from her divine dominion, not so much for a mortal to use on their lovers, unless you really don't think much of them as people (since the applications are basically a catalogue of human rights violations ^ ^;)
I'm pretty sure successful harem is the unspoken end goal of superpowers, just like it is for real-life power, so your question is really not that strange ^ ^
Polyamory is about more than seduction and lust though, it's also about care, love and companionship.
So the user would also need something like Invulnerability Bestowal to ensure their lovers' safety and well-being, something like Soulmate Connection to emotionally connect on a deeper level (so the love way blossom and thrive rather than wane and fade) and something like Replication to provide all lovers with their fair share of personal attention (key requirement of any actual relation, that separates love from ownership).
No worries, it was a pleasure :)
Take care too ^ ^
Spatial Manipulation generally beats most physical powers, since they are inherently reliant on space to operate, so it has the capability to defeat TFP via containment or exile (direct attacks would likely fail since TFP can shug any attempt at structural damage).
On the other end, the telekinetically-induced spacetime distortion that is the power's trump card could probably counter these moves by disrupting their realization (unless they are facing true masters of spacetime, against which most powers are ineffective).
Considering the sheer speed of the projectiles, the targets would likely be obliterated long before they can figure out their general location. All the more if the user goes tactical about it, circling enemy positions with stationary projectiles, then raining death from all directions with surgical precision, in a Macross Missile impredictable pattern.
Huge military potential for sure, making users natural-born one-man armies ^ ^
From what I understand, Telepaths and such operate by remotely accessing a person's brain and tweaking synapses. TFP users on the other hand have nothing remotely comparable, so mental powers would probably just wave their psychic tendrils around without finding much of anything.
Colors are technically the product of light reflection, and TFP can telekinetically control it (that's how users emulate human appearence), so the projectiles could be of any color they want, appear as a transparent distortion, or be virtually invisible for the sake of stealth (by telekinetically replicating the natural flow of light within the projectile).
Thank you very much :)
It's true such a character would be really strong and hard to defeat. I think its real weaknes lies in a relative lack of versatility and the necessary self-restrain that goes along.
Unlike (advanced) Telekinesis, you can't construct and rebuild things by yourself, so any collateral damage you cause is permanent, and any stuff you care about that ends up destroyed is destroyed for good.
So while very few things can pose a threat to you, everything else you care about is very much at risk, which forces you to hold back and negociate a lot more than you would like, first to obtain the things you want, then to keep them durably safe.
Well, unless you see everything and everyone as replaceable, but it's more of a bad guy profile.
@13 Apostles Thank you ^ ^ I created both, though the physiology variant came later.
Telekinetic Force is about raw might while Telekinesis is about subtle versatility, so our preference depends on the character type we like most, the first power being ideally suited for a warrior type, while the latter fits the mage type much better.
Awesome raw power with a strong identity, first-grade offense/defense potential equally effective on small and large-scale, and some cool trump cards to top it off.
Great abilities all-around ^ ^
Metapotence is a simplified perspective on the concept of Omnipotence. The power itself is identical, it is just a whole lot easier for the audience to grasp ("meta" + "potence" : the "power beyond power", that rules absolute above all forms of logic - hence its conceptual association with Logic Manipulation).
Omnipotence can do anything without condition.
Ultipotence can do anything the user understands.
