Capabilities

Users can manipulate the boundary between fantasy and reality (what is and what isn't), turning one into the other and blurring the border between them. It allows users to bring anything into existence, including impossible things - especially impossible things, as fantasies care little about reality's limitations.

Fantasies can be brought to life as independent existences, or infused into reality in more subtle ways. Users can also turn aspects of reality into fantasies, making them vanish as having never existed. By combining these two aspects, they can remodel existing things to their liking, or replace them with something entirely new.

When using these capabilities at full power, the border between fantasy and reality becomes so thin that it might as well not exist. The affected area is no longer bound to reality and instead becomes an extension of the user's soul, a place where fantasy and reality are one and the same. In this impossible realm, unbounded by any rule, anything is possible, and things like "Heaven" and "Hell" are no longer just metaphysical concepts.

Applications

Techniques

  • Reality Inducement - Users can make anything they can think off real allowing them to turn things that are fake or fictional into real things at will.
  • Reality Filtering - Users can redefine all of reality through metaphysical filters alteration from the lines between reality and fictionality to their every desire.
  • Reality Mind - Users can fantasize all of reality, meaning that everything of reality is dominated one's mind, thoughts and imagination.
  • Erasure - Users can make anything or everything into nothing and make it all fiction, as if they they where never there to begin with.

  • Absolute Restoration - Users can bring anything that was altered or erased back and reborn to the way things where remaking them as if users never altered anything.
