[Earth-F]Superhumanity, part two of two

Post by Hoid » Wed Feb 15, 2017 12:21 am

[Earth-F]A dissertation on local superhumanity: part 2 of 2.
MACHINE-TITANS:
What are 'Machine-Titans'?
'Machine-Titans' are Machine-Deities that've drastically malfunctioned, mutating them out of control into ENORMOUS, hate-fueled war-juggernauts.

Machine-Titans are feared by all peoples throughout Earth-F, as they've only one objective: "Destroy the enemy!" Unfortunately, lacking control parameters, Machine-Titans were free to interpret that order in whatever way fitted their prejudices and/or psychoses best.

How do Machine-Titans differ from Machine-Deities?
A Machine-Titan occurs whenever a Machine-Deity's software undergoes a fatal systems crash. This causes the Machine-Titan to undergo radical mutations and uncontrolled weapons upgrades not restrained by tzorareesph Battlefield Scaling Limitations.

This has several effects:
First, a Machine-Titan swells to ENORMOUS size.
Second, a Machine-Titan undergoes a massive spike in raw power!
Third, a Machine-Titan permanently enters a combat fugue, in which everything around it is either an enemy hostile, a friendly, or else is an objective of some sort.
Fourth and finally, Machine-Titans no longer possess genuine free will, being slaves to the above-mentioned combat fugue.

That sounds...unpleasant. Can a Machine-Titan be 'fixed' and transformed properly into a Machine-Deity?
Most certainly!...assuming you have the tzorareesph command-codes---which are currently on the bombed-out industrial hellscape that is the tzorareesph homeworld over a hundred lightyears away!

How many Machine-Titans are there?
Right about a thousand, give or take. (Yes, this is a much smaller population than that of Machine-Deities.)

Is there a Machine-Titan Exemplar?
Yes. Known to his countrymen as Raiden (PL13/255pp), this Japanese Machine-Titan is considered a vile oni, or 'giant': Raiden has immense weather-controlling powers, which he must 'refuel' by consuming human flesh. Placeholder.

Are Machine-Titans Demimachines?
Yes.

What do Machine-Titans look like?
Immense and hulking...and hideous! These're the three universal qualities found in Machine-Titans; other than, every Machine-Titan is a unique flower of monstrousness! Placeholder.

Is the Earth-F imperiex a Machine-Titan?
No. The Overlord is a psychic utterly unrelated to the machineries of thetzorareesph. He is, in fact, an Exotic! (The Overlord is discussed elsewhere.)

[Earth-B]Leafgardentown!

Post by Hoid » Mon May 01, 2017 5:56 pm

[Earth-B]The Micropolis of Leafgardentown!
Leafgardentown is part of the Hegemony's Central Polity.

Technically a city of its own but also technically part of New York City, Leafgardentown has the pleasurable distinction of being the happiest place on Earth. Populated entirely by Leafs, Leafgardentown has no crime, no unemployment, no great intolerances or xenophobias. It is warm, inviting and friendly, and the locals are the nicest people you'll ever meet.

Covering the tops of every building in Manhattan, as well as the top six floors of every skyscraper throughout all NYC, Leafgarden is, well, green! A hydroponics facility of epic size as well as a Leaf micro-metropolis, Leafgardentown is beautiful and serene. As Leafs photosynthesize, the streets of Leafgardentown have canals instead of sidewalks. Water is free and open to anyone who cares to partake.

As for the city, economically:
Leafgardentown's main export is produce. While many might be squicked out by tiny plant beings being farmers, Leafs see agriculture as no different from humans raising animal livestock.

As for the city, culturally:
Aphids are popular pets in Leafgardentown.
English is primarily spoken in Leafgardentown.
Most of the micropolis' citizenry is Christian, but a sizeable Jewish population can also be found.
Who's That Leaf?, a TV reality-show in which curious Leafs learn about their human ancestors, is Leafgardentown's local smash hit.

As for the city religiously:
Turning Over Anew Ministries has the vast majority of Leafgardentown's Christian population. Technically its own Protestant denomination, Turning Over Anew Ministries is a positive force for good in the micropolis.

As for the city politically:
Leafgardentown is liberal, politically.
Leafgardentown is run by a mayor and a city council, all of them elected by popular vote. Leaf candidates never engage in verbal 'attacks' on other candidates, something Leafs find endlessly confusing in the outside world. The mayor of Leafgardentown is the retired noted film star Petal Posey (PL0/3pp; rose-Leaf). Running on a platform of increased charity work for the homeless non-Leafs of New York City, Ms. Posey won the election in a landslide. She's two months into a two year term of office.
Leafgardentown's citizenry are exempt from the normal mandatory Hegemonic military service every other mutantcitizen must undergo. (Leafs as soldiers is very laughable!)

[Multiverse-wide]Degenerate and ascendant thoughtforms.

Post by Hoid » Sun Sep 24, 2017 12:10 am

[Multiverse-wide]Degenerate and ascendant thoughtforms.
Found exclusively in the Infinite Roots, degenerate and ascendant thoughtforms are thoughtforms either 'compressed' into mangled format ('degenerate') or expanded to a greater scale of functionality ('ascendant').
Placeholder.

What is a degenerate thoughtform?
A degenerate thoughtform is a thoughtform that has psychically 'devolved' into a much more bestial, partially solid state.
Placeholder.
What are goldforms?
Goldforms are the least-corrupted degenerate thoughtforms. Goldforms still retain the celestial luster of their former mutability, but are more memetically coherent and, on average far less powerful than the average thoughtform.
Placeholder.
What are ironforms?
Less corrupt than stoneforms but more corrupted than goldforms, ironforms make up 85% of the entire degenerate thoughtform population! Crushed down under the metaphysical weight of the entire multiverse above, ironforms have lost all mutability and, in a crippling manner, have assumed a solid, permanent identity.
Placeholder.
What are stoneforms?
Stoneform are the most-corrupted degenerate thoughtform.
Placeholder.

What is an ascendant thoughtform?
An ascendant thoughtform is a thoughtform that has psychically 'evolved', losing even more physicality, but gaining immensely in power.
Placeholder.
What are godforms?
Godforms are ascendant thoughtforms of either good OR evil that have achieved the apex of their ascension, being a single step below the status of a cosmic entity or higher-order intelligence. This makes godforms immensely powerful, but their lack of even ephemeral substance means godforms must use natural phenomenon to work their immense powers through.
Placeholder.
What are devilforms?
Devilforms are malevolent ascendant thoughtforms that have forcibly consumed the soul of an Apkallu and thusly metamorphosed into a much more powerful shape.
Placeholder.
What are ghostforms?
Ghostforms are benevolent ascendant thoughtforms that have peacefully merged with the soul of a recently departed mundane human and thusly metamprphosed into a much more powerful shape.
Placeholder.

[Earth-B]The Dream Moth and his nameless team!

Post by Hoid » Thu Sep 28, 2017 6:10 pm

[Earth-B]the Dream Moth and his nameless team!
Placeholder.

Absalom: the Dream Moth’s ceremonial bodyguard.
PL10/155pp. Male Caucasian Benign Tumor mutant. With beautiful plummage for hair and talons sharp enough to slice through steel, Absalom ironically cannot fly, despite being an avian-feral: instead, Absalom is monstrously fast, being the 3rd-fastest superspeedster in the Earth-B universe!

Absalom is one of the Dream Moth’s oldest friends, knowing him back in his mundane human days. Absalom was there at the epicenter of the Ectoplasmc Pollination, and, as such, also had part of his consciousness broken off and solidified—which solidified into a Device knife that steals momentum from other things and entities and adds it to Absalom, himself!

the Dream Moth: the imperiex of Earth-B.
Crunch Writeup:
Placeholder.

the Forestmother: Giantess high priest of the Oldgods Polity
Female Giant mutant.
Placeholder.

Plaguedog: the Dream Moth's best friend.
Crunch Writeup: Here ye go!
PL1/21pp. Real name is Charlie Cast. Male unknown ethnicity Cyst Tumor mutant. Immortal but fragile and festering with every disease known to man, Plaguedog is a hideously deformed canine humanoid, crippled by his deformities. Only able to walk with the help of a walker, Plaguedog is a pitiful sight to behold...

...in reality, however, despite all this, Plaguedog stands in a position of endless possibility. Being the Dream Moth’s best friend, pre-Ectoplasmic Pollination and being one of the three beings to remember the Dream Moth’s real name and original appearance, Plaguedog is the most trusted of the Dream Moth’s Court. The Dream Moth places absolute trust in his old friend and would level mountains to protect Plaguedog.

Plaguedog, however, is hopelessly in love with the Dream Moth, but is crippled with insecurity and cannot bring himself to confess his feelings.

[Multiverse-wide]The Dreamingborn!

Post by Hoid » Thu Sep 28, 2017 6:14 pm

the Dreamingborn: the avatars of the Earth.
Every parallel-Earth in the Forever Tree has a single, unique superhuman known as a 'Dreamingborn'... Born of the general collective unconsciousness of that parallel-Earth, a Dreamingborn is a thoughtform-turned human---sometimes a superhero, sometimes a supervillain!---that embodies that reality's current global situation.

All Dreamingborn are PL9/150pp. Each Dreamingborn is immortal, only killable if their parallel-Earth's wiped clean of all life. Each Dreamingborn has a unique set of powers, that reflect the superhumans and mundane societies' reaction to said superhumans.

Only parallel-Earths have Dreamingborn; no Perpendicular or Resonance has Dreamingborn. Furthermore, the Weavery commands that Elementals and Dreamingborn are drawn to each other, as both are a species of 'worlds' souls'.

Animal-bodied Dreamingborn are those of their ilk who infused themselves into a mundane animal corpse, 'resurrecting' it with themselves as the bodies' new memetic cores.
Placeholder.

Human-bodied Dreamingborn are those of their ilk who infused themselves into a mundane human corpse, 'resurrecting' it with themselves as the bodies' new memetic cores.
Placeholder.

Myth-bodied Dreamingborn are stories that congeal around a thoughtform, turning that Dreamingborn into a pale echo of the story in question---such as the Big Bad Wolf, Daffy Duck or Hercules. Myth-bodied Dreamingborn are only sometimes aware they're not legitimately the figure in question...some grow QUITE vocal they are the Entity they say they are!
Placeholder.

Plant-bodied Dreamingborn are somewhat akin to DC's character Swamp Thing, except on a majorly lower level of power!
Placeholder.

Protean-bodied Dreamimgborn are too incoherent to have a singular identity, instead being fluid accomplished shapechangers, to one degree or another.
Placeholder.

Psyche-bodied Dreamingborn are psychic entities without genuinely physicality, but nevertheless are majorly more stable than any thoughtform.
Placeholder.

Robot-bodied Dreamingborn have no bodies, having instead overwritten the software used by AI-equipped robots!
Placeholder.

Star-bodied Dreamingborn have used cohered light to simulate the coalescence of physicality.
Placeholder.

Xeno-bodied Dreamingborn are alien corpses reanimated by thoughtforms as their new memetic cores!
Placeholder.

[Earth-B]Currently existing countries!

Post by Hoid » Thu Sep 28, 2017 6:17 pm

Earth-B: Currently existing countries.
MAJOR COUNTRIES:
Placeholder.

the Eastern Bear Republic: The eastern remnant of Russia.
Full Name: The People's Free and Democratic East Russian Republic.
Human Population: 36 million.
Mutant Population: Less than 12 thousand.
Stance?: Neutral.
Geography: Huge chunks of easternmost,,still-livable Siberia, along with bits of Mongolia.
Language(s): Officially, Russian. Other Eastern European languages are widely spoken, also.
Government: Communist dictatorship thinly veiled beneath democratic soundbites.
Ruler(s): Premiere Yaroslav Vitkin (PL3/66pp; male mundane human) is the 'democratically elected' dictator-for-life of the Eastern Bear Republic.
Military:
Political Relationships: The remnants of Russia still talk to each other, but the dying Russian 'superpower' is now lingering on in the face of the inevitable.
Religion(s): Predominantly Russian Orthodox Christians, with sizable Jewish and Muslim minority communities. Dreaming Shamanism is completely illegal.
Special Notes: The Eastern Bear Republic is slowly on the rise, but carefully consolidates any new holdings before continuing outward. Placeholder.

/-

Gardenia: A Wiccan micro-polity.

/-

Giantsteading: The world's most powerful city-state.
Full Name: The Shining City of Giantsteading.
Human Population: n/a.
Mutant Population: 697 Giants; 12 thousand others.
Stance?: Pro-mutant.
Geography: Just south of the ruins of Seattle, Washington, US of A.
Language(s): English, universally-speaking.
Government: Direct democracy with a symbolic monarchy.
Ruler(s): His Gigantic Majesty King Oswald Roland (PL12/270pp; male Giant) is the figurehead 'ruler' of Giantsteading. Once much more politically active, the death of Oswald's wife has sent the king into a tailspin of deep abiding depression. Oswald spends much of his time either drunk or sleeping.
Military: Every Giant and Giantess in Giantsteading, even the children, possess immense raw power. Despite numbering less than 700-strong, the Giants of the Metroplolis of Titans are more than capable of successfully holding off even the largest armies...
Political Relationships: Giantsteading is firmly allied with the Hegemony and the Silent Columns of the Monolithic, but standard aloof from all others. (As an aside, the Dream Moth is, in addition to the ruler of the Hegemony, a full citizen of Giantsteading. [He holds no authority here, though.])
Religion(s): Atheism, among Giants; all other religions are given free reign to preach and worship, save for anti-mutant religious creeds.
Special Notes: Placeholder.

/-

the Hegemony: The mutant 'empire'.
Full Name: The Hegemony of Mutant States.
Human Population: 60 million.
Mutant Population: 9 million (600 Divided; 22 Giants; 3.8 thousand Heavenshadows; 2 million Leafs; 2 thousand Mentats; 2 friendly New Kaiju; 4 million Tumors).
Stance?: Pro-mutant, obviously!
Geography: Much of the old US of A.
Language(s): English is the official language of the entire Hegemony; however, being as multicultural as it is, plenty of other languages are spoken on a daily basis.
Government: Loose alliance of pro-mutant countries.
Ruler(s): The Dream Moth (PLX/996pp; male unique mutant imperiex) is the Hegemony's king, but, the fact is each Hegemonic state governs itself. Only in times of war would the Dream Moth be given genuine authority; during peacetime (such as nowadays!), the position of king is purely symbolic.
Military: Varies by polity.
Political Relationships: The Hegemony (as a whole) considers any/all pro-mutant countries at least tenuous allies. The Purity, however, is THE greatest source of condemnation by Hegemonic citizens; many hardliners've been clamoring for renewed hostilities.
Religion(s): Officially, none. However, neither does the Hegemony, as a whole, promulgate atheism. Faith is, in the Dream Moth's eyes, not a matter of government regulation. Anti-mutant faiths, however, are banned, viewedhowever more as a security issue than a theological dilemma.
Special Notes: Laws in the Hegemony CLEARLY favor mutants, and anti-mutant groups are HARSHLY cracked down upon at the slightest hint of trouble. This has had the effect of actually strengthening anti-mutant resentment among Hegemonic humans.

the Bordering Polity: The mutant space program/offworlders colonies.
Full Name: The Sovereign Habitats of the Bordering Polity.
Human Population: 12 thousand.
Mutant Population: 600-some.
Stance?: Pro-mutant, obviously!
Geography: Outer space, obviously!
Language(s): English.
Government: Loose coalition of habitat captains; each captain is elected by their crew.
Ruler(s): Placeholder.
Military: None. There's just not a need for it, or even the ability to really create one!
Political Relationships:
Religion(s): Atheism, though it's not really due to philosophy. Aboard a habitat, space is premium, so areas for worship are, as yet, a luxury few can afford.
Special Notes: The Orbital Man is perhaps the most famous and ill-tempered citizen of the Bordering Polity.
Right now, the Bordering Polity and the Titans' Polity are jointly planning a colonization effort on Mars.

-//-\\-

the Central Polity: The beating heart of the Hegemony.
Full Name: The People's Democratically-Elected Central Polity.
Human Population: 23 million.
Mutant Population:
Stance?: Pro-mutant, obviously!
Geography: Most of the American Midwest.
Language(s): English.
Government: Democratically-elected oligarchy with constitutional monarchy.
Ruler(s): His Majesty King Dream Moth I (PLX/996pp; male unique mutant imperiex), Heir to Evolution and Prince of Mutation, officially rules the Central Hegemony as its popularly-acclaimed monarch.
In reality, however, the Dream Moth is mostly just a figurehead; instead, a democratically-elected, 13-member Planning Committee holds most of the reins of genuine political power.
Military:
Political Relationships: The Central Hegemony does its level best to maintain Harmony between all member-polities of the greater Hegemony, viewing itself as the social clue holding the Hegemony together.
Religion(s): Protestant Christianity (especially the Leaf-founded Turning Over Anew Ministries) accounts for most of the populace. However, the Central Polity allows for religious freedoms. However, groups with direct ties to The Purity are outlawed (though for political, rather than religious, reasons).
Special Notes: Leafgardentown, the largest Leaf 'city' in the whole world, is found in the Central Polity. Placeholder.

-//-\\-

the Deepbelow Polity: Literally below your feet.
Full Name: The Subterranean Corporate Enclaves of the Deepbelow Polity.
Human Population: 6 million.
Mutant Population:
Stance?: Pro-mutant, obviously!
Geography:
Language(s): English.
Government: Coalition of state-sponsored mutant-owned mega-corporations.
Ruler(s):
Military:
Political Relationships:
Religion(s): Atheism. There's a strongly anti-religious sentiment in the Deepbelow Polity, as loyalty to 'the team' is emphasized over all other factors in life!
Special Notes: Placeholder.

-//-\\-

the Farmers' Polity: Providing food to the Hegemony---and the WORLD!
Full Name: The Economic Alliance of the Farmers' Polity.
Human Population:
Mutant Population:
Stance?: Pro-mutant, obviously!
Geography: Most of the former American Bible Belt.
Language(s): English.
Government: Loose alliance of mutant-run biotechnology megacorporations.
Ruler(s):
Military:
Political Relationships:
Religion(s): Atheism. Though citizens can certainly believe whatever they want and religious institutions pay much lower taxes than everyone else, in the Farmers' Polity's cutthroat 'corporate jungle', religious belief has never been terribly strongly felt.
Special Notes: Most of the Hegemony's foods and medicines come from the Farmers' Polity. The Dream Moth recognizes the weakness this represents, but creating new food-production facilities is not as simple as many think it is! Placeholder.

-//-\\-

the Guardwalls Polity: The Hegemony's military.
Full Name: The Sovereign and Defensive Polity of the Guarding Walls.
Human Population:
Mutant Population:
Stance?: Pro-mutant, obviously!
Geography: The Rocky Mountains, in the US of A.
Language(s): English.
Government: Militaristic republic.
Ruler(s): A democratically-elected Senate, headed by a Presiding Officer (currently one Madcap Jim Argo [PL13/160pp; male Heavenshadow able to breathe and exist indefinitely under the water]). However, to be elected as either Senator or Presiding Officer, one both must be a mutant and a Guardswall military veteran now cycled out to civilian life.
Military: Military zeal and a warrior ethic permeates every single aspect of Guardwalls Polity society; meaning, the Guardwalls Polity has the largest military among the individual polities.
Political Relationships: The Guardwalls Polity has a brotherly attitude towards the Hegemony's other polities, feeling a kind of fraternal affection that prompts a social attitude of constant military preparedness.
Of significant interest to the Guardwalls Polity is New Eden. Acting to keep The Purity focused on European endeavors, New Eden has received substantial economic aid from the Guardwalls Polity.
Religion(s): As the Guardwalls Polity funnels huge amounts of cash to prop up New Eden, it should come as no surprise the Orthodox and True Catholic Church dominates religious life, here.
Special Notes: Placeholder.

-//-\\-

the Oldgods Polity: Paganism, restored.
Full Name: The True Faith of the People's Archeoliving Communes.
Human Population: 12 million.
Mutant Population:
Stance?: Pro-mutant, obviously!
Geography: The former state of Washington, US of A.
Language(s): English.
Government: Hereditary theocracy.
Ruler(s): High Priestess Forestmother (PL11/290pp; female Giant) is more-or-less the absolute monarch of the Oldgods Polity. However, Forestmother's duties are overwhelmingly religious in nature, ergo, she has little time for politics. Forestmother is a Dianic Wiccan; her husband, Forestfather (PL6/100pp; male Malignant Tumor telepath), is her ritual counterpart in Wiccan 'Workings'.
Military:
Political Relationships: As you might expect, relations between the Oldgods Polity and New Eden can best be described as 'frosty' and 'barely civil'. However, the Oldgods Polity and the micro-polity of Gardenia tightly allied, militarily, economically and culturally.
Religion(s): Polytheism, irregardless of creed or scripture or belief, is the official state 'meta-religion', and the Oldgods Polity's laws blatantly reflect that ideal. Among neo-pagans, Wicca is a perennial favorite. Dreaming Shamanism has begun to take root, much to the Dream Moth's great embarrassment.
Special Notes: To be a politician in the Oldgods Polity, being a holy man/holy woman definitely helps, as the citizenry is so deeply religious.
In the wilderness of the Oldgods Polity, a great many Hulkbeasts make a home. They are protected by law, and're often the subject of religious devotion! Placeholder.

-//-\\-

the Titans' Polity (Polity Zero): The industrial foundation upon which the entire Hegemony rests.
Full Name:
Human Population:
Mutant Population:
Stance?: Pro-mutant, obviously!
Geography: Much of what was once Mexico.
Language(s): Spanish. The Titans' Polity is unique in that it is the only Hegemonic polity to not have English as its official language.
Government: Mutant-run corporate oligarchy.
Ruler(s):
Military:
Political Relationships:
Religion(s):
Special Notes: The ONLY place on Earth where AIs are legal AND recognized fully as citizenry is the Titans' Polity. This is INCREDIBLY controversial in the other Hegemonic polities.
Right now, the Titans' Polity and the Bordering Polity are preparing for a colonization effort on Mars. Placeholder.

/-

the Imperial Collective: The remnants of China.
Full Name: The Imperial Collective of Heavenly Mandated Reformed China.
Human Population: 550,000,000.
Mutant Population:
Stance?: Too varied to list, here.
Geography: Large chunks of northern and eastern China.
Language(s): Various dialects of Chinese.
Government: Anarchic alliance of feuding warlords, corporate moguls and Legalist fanatics.
Ruler(s): Priemere Li Wu Shan (PL0/33pp mundane human), crippled, confined to a wheelchair and under constant medical supervision, rules the largest chunk of the Imperial Collective, making Li the closest thing the country has to a reigning head of state.
Military:
Political Relationships:
Religion(s): Atheism...officially. However, Buddhism and Taoism are so deeply entrenched in Chinese culture the various petty potentates of the Imperial Collective've literally given up trying to suppress them.
Special Notes: The Shaolin Monastery is a POWERFUL force in Imperial Collective politics.

/-

Labyrinth: Hidden city-state of human/alien hybrids.
Full Name: Imwid Outpost #333653333.
Human Population:
Alien Population:
AI Population:
Stance?: n/a.
Geography:
Language(s): eYfoer (an imwid language).
Government: AI-assisted oligarchic dictatorship.
Ruler(s):
Military:
Political Relationships: None; Labyrinth zealously avoids contact with the outside world, often to the verge of xenophobia.
Religion(s): Imwidaan pantheism, a nameless reverence for existence, itself, infuses every level of Labyrinthian society.
Special Notes: Placeholder.

/-

New Eden: Beacon of freedom amidst The Purity's tyranny.
Full Name: The Joyous Refuge of New Eden..
Human Population:
Mutant Population:
Stance?: Pro-mutant.
Geography:
Government: Theocracy.
Ruler(s): Her Holiness Magna Mater Acquarone (PL1/60pp; female mundane human) is pontiff of New Eden, following her husband's tragic death, and her son's recruitment by the Star Corps.
Military: Being Christian pacifists by belief, New Eden would love to disband its army---...but with The Purity hammering their defenses every few days, New Eden cannot afford to do so!
Political Relationships: New Eden receives huge aid packages from the Hegemony's Guardwalls Polity every three or four months; as a result, New Eden knows that, should The Purity come, the Guardwalls Polity will intervene on New Eden's behalf!
Religion(s): Though New Eden happily accepts citizens of nearly any faith, the state religion of New Eden is, as you might imagine, Orthodox and True Catholicism. Religion is built into New Edenite civilization on a fundamental level.
Special Notes: Placeholder.

the Northern Bear Republic: The northern remnant of Russia.
Full Name: The Royal Institute of Republican Science.
Human Population:
Mutant Population:
Stance?: Pro-mutant.
Government:
Government: Technocratic bureaucracy.
Ruler(s): Prime Scientist Helgga Rustovich (PL10/151pp; female Malignant Tumor super-genius/cyberkinetic) rules the Northern Bear Republic with an iron hand. Blatantly showing favoritism to mutant citizenry and responsible for countless human rights violations, Helgga is often used by The Purity as an example of how 'evil' mutants are.
Military:
Politcal Relationships: Despite being both run by mutants, for mutants, relations between the Hegemony and the Northern Bear Republic are...strained. The NBR's openly anti-human society goes so far beyond the pale that even the most dedicated Hegemonic hardliner blanches in dismay.
Religion(s): Atheism is not only state-mandated, it is ruthlessly enforced.
Special Notes: Placeholder.

The Purity: Anti-mutant tyranny cloaked under a thin religious coating.

Geography: Italy, Greece and most of the Mediterranean region.
Government: Theocratic militocracy.
Ruler(s): Leading The Purity is the autocratic and insane Sentry known only as Our Father (PL13/262pp; male uber-Sentry). Our Father is part warchieftain, part 'prime minister' and part 'Messiah'. By sheer force of will, Our Father has kept The Purity going for decades. Our Father is the Sentry Exemplar, too, meaning he's of great cosmic importance (though he doesn't realize it)!
Military:
Political Relationships: The Purity is on its last legs and is desperate for any sympathetic human nation to help prop it up. Sadly, even other anti-mutant countries are DEEPLY unnerved by The Purity's deep cultural monomania....
Religion(s): Roman Catholicism is the state religion, BUT, The Purity welcomes any and ALL anti-mutant faiths.
Special Notes: The Purity is perpetually on the verge of falling apart, held together only by the tyrannical hand of Our Father.

Ruler(s):

Human Population: 99 million (scattered thinly).

Human Population:
Mutant Populatiom:
Stance?: Pro-mutant.
Geography: The city of Lhasa and its immediate environs.
Language(s): Tibet; Mongolian and various dialects of Chinese are prevalent.
Government:[/i] Theocracy.
Ruler(s):[/i] His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Political Relationships:[/i]
Religion(s):[/i] Tibetan Buddhism, obviously!
Special Notes:[/i]

the Neo-Golden Horde:[/color] The time of the khans has come again!
Full Name:[/i] The Neo-Golden Horde of the Empire of United Mongolia.
Human Population:[/i]
Mutant Population:[/i]
Stance?:[/i] Pro-mutant, though more out of military necessity than any genuine tolerance!
Geography:[/i] ALL of Mongolia, as well as parts of China and tiny bits of Tibet.
Language(s):[/i] Officially, Mongolian. However, several dialects of Chinese are widely spoken, as is English (a carry-over from generations of Western missionaries).
Government:[/i] Militocracy..
Ruler(s):[/i] Khan of Khans Tengri (PL9/141pp; male mundane human) rose to control the Neo-Golden Horde by catering to the Heavenshadow mutants that sparsely dot the Mongolian countryside. He has named a Heavenshadow boy as his successor; with the Heavenshadows' loyalty secured, Tengri went on to forge an empire!
Political Relationships:[/i]
Religion(s):[/i] Surprisingly, by this point, most in the Neo-Golden Horde are Christian, generations of missionary-work finally paying off. As the Neo-Golden Horde is a warlike conquest-driven empire, their true devotion to Christian doctrine is...suspect, to say the least.
Special Notes:[/i] Despite the vast amount of territory it possesses, the Neo-Horde is almost entirely dependent on its Heavenshadows for both offense AND defense. This attitude will no doubt lead to the Horde's sudden fall...

the Wyld:[/color] Adopted 'homeland' of Hulkbeasts.
This really isn't a country, but cartographers treat it as such. Nearly a quarter million Hulkbeasts live here, in the shattered ruins of the American East Coast, living in savage pseudo-'tribes'.

- -- --- ---- ----- ------ ------- -------- --------- ----------

NO MAN'S LANDS:
The following regions are, even to this day, uninhabited hellscapes.

Australia:[/color]
The anti-mutant forces that later on gelled to become The Purity unleashed retroviral warheads on pro-mutant Australia, leading to out-of-control mutations among the populace; many turned into flesh-eating cannibals, whereas others became hideously deformed and yet still others died in horror from their physical degenerations.

The Australian people are fighting a valiant war, even today, to retake their home from lab-created monstrosities, but the battle is uphill and shows no signs of letting up.

the Indian subcontinent:[/color]
When the Mutation Wars erupted, India and Pakistan both panicked, nuking each other off the map. Tens of millions of refugees flooded into Africa and the Middle East; hundreds of millions more, however, died in the nuclear exchange.

To this day, the Indian subcontinent is a toxic, unlivable wasteland.

[The Rootthrone]the Lamassu!

Post by Hoid » Thu Sep 28, 2017 6:30 pm

The Rootthrone: the Lamassu!
What're the Lamassu?
Created from raw Useful Oblivion by automated processes set in motion 15 billion years ago by the Worldfather, the Lamassu are borderline-cosmic entities charged with guarding the Rootthrone and the nameless blind idiot god who sings out the Weavery. This is their only purpose, and only a very select few have the privilidge of being allowed past Lamassu sentries.

Are Lamassu thoughtforms, and can they have nephilim children with human partners?
No, Lamassu are not thoughtforms: they are entirely corporeal, have distinct 'identities' and do not embody concepts of various kinds. Furthermore, Lamassu cannot sire or bear offspring: the Rootthrone will produce more Lamassu as is needed.

What is 'the Terrestrial Mandate'?
The Terrestrial Mandate is the order to protect the Weavery and the nameless being that babbles it forth at all costs. Most who enter the Rootthrone are immediately attacked by the Lamassu.

What powers do the Lamassu possess?
It really depends on the Lamassu in question:

The Cosmic Beast (PL19/445pp) is an animal-based shapechanger on steroids. Technically male.

The Destroyer (PL20/450pp) is a psychokinetic, able to both use massive telekinesis, along with generating/controlling HUGE amounts of various kinds of energy. Technically male.

The Meister (PL24/991pp) can form epic force constructs out of sound, vibration and motion. Technically male, the Meister is leader of the Lamassu.

The Sun-Swami (PL15/445pp) can alter reality itself through complex and exhausting dances/songs. Technically female.

The Swan (PL18/445pp) is a telepath of the highest order, also possessing indestructible iron wings with infinitely-sharp feathers. Technically female.

What happens when a Lamassu dies?
As no Lamassu has ever died, even the Lamassu themselves aren't sure. They do have memetic cores ('souls') and so theoretically would simply go to the Primordial Deep. Still...no one is sure.

How many Lamassu are there?
Only four Lamassu and one ur-Lamassu have ever been needed. More can be spontaneously generated, if needed, but this has never happened...

Who leads the Lamassu? Who gave them their Terrestrial Mandate?
The Lamassu follow an 'ur-Lamassu' known as 'the Meister'. Like his subordinates, the Meister is fanatical in his duties---never tiring, never getting lazy or careless. As the Lamassu are borderline-cosmic entities, the Meister is a full cosmic entity!

As to who gave them their Terrestrial Mandate, that's simple: the Worldfather; He-who-is-now-Dead.

[Earth-G]Witchlands!

Post by Hoid » Mon Oct 23, 2017 10:39 pm

These three witchlands all share one quality: they're evil, and good men should not be here...

Infamous witchlands:
The Black Labyrinth:
Found in the Carpathians, the Black Labyrinth has seen countless evils performed there over a great many ages; after it became a witchland, it saw that evil awake and will itself into psychic permanency.
Powers: [72pp.]
Ghastly Noises: Enhanced Skills: Intimidate +4. [1pp.] Features 1 (horrid, skin-crawling, demonic noises). [1pp.] — [2pp.]
Walk the Labyrinth, Turn to Darkness: Mental Transform 10 (any good to any evil). [70pp.]
----/::This is a completed Black Labyrinth build.
The Black Labyrinth is White Wolf's Black Spiral, retooled for a supers setting.
The Earthen Tomb of the Lyricist:
Inanna traveled into the Underworld to rescue Tammuz. Orpheus descended into Hades to bring back his wife. Some even believe Jesus, during his three-day death, descended to Hell to liberate lost souls. Found in Greece, the Earthen Tomb of the Lyrist echoes these legends, though it's doubtful it really leads to Hell.
Powers: [3pp.]
Hellmouth: Super-Movement 1 (dimensional movement 1 [the Outer-ring of Gnosis]; Extras: Portal). [3pp.]
----/::This is a completed Earthen Tomb of the Lyricist build.
It does NOT lead you to Hades, but rather...somewhere else, much further afield...!
The Nothinggardens:
Found in Rome, Italy, right next to St. Michael's Cathedral, the Nothinggardens have the unique distinction of being the ONLY witchlands considered holy by Mother Church. A swath of inky void, the Nothinggardens have the unique ability to dampen powers granted by the Green Star.
Powers: [55pp.]
An Absence of Powers: Nullify 3 (all Green Star-related powers; Flaws: Full Power). [21pp.]
A Yawning Garden of Oblivion: Darkness Control 8 (Extras: Area [cloud], Progression 3 [area of effect]; Flaws: Full Power). [19pp.] Dazzle 6 (sound, only; Extras: Area [cloud], Progression 3 [area of effect]; Flaws: Full Power; Quirk: Manifests as a Zone of Absolute Silence). [15pp.] --- [34pp.]
----/::This is a completed Nothinggardens build.
Holy Mother Church rigorously controls the Nothinggardens and uses them to hold particularly recalcitrant Starborn, prior to any trials and/or executions.

[Earth-G]Witchlands!

Post by Hoid » Mon Oct 23, 2017 10:43 pm

Infamous witchlands:
The Forest-under-the-Forest:
The Beast of Sherwood is assisted in its violent task by the fact a large chunk of Sherwood Forest is now a witchland. Known as the Forest-under-the-Forest, this witchland is accessible by those affected by the Green Star, only. A shadowy mirror-image of Sherwood, the Forest-under-the-Forest has trees with bark made of copper. Those in the Forest-under-the-Forest may gather a "charge" from these trees; upon leaving the witchland, this charge can be "vented" in a thundering and explosive breath-weapon.

This has led many to mistakenly label the Beast of Sherwood as a Starborn. That this breath weapon may only be used once every 77 hours (no matter how often one visits the Forest-under-the-Forest) has yet to be deduced.

[Since this is NOT a character, but rather a literal part of the setting...HERE are the stats...]

The Forest-under-the-Forest:
Powers: [12pp.]
Coppery Trees: Blast 4 (electric breath weapon; Extras: Affects Others, Area [cone]; Flaws: Only Affects Others, Unreliable [can only be used once every 77 hours]). [8pp.]
Spiritfood: Features 1 (able to comfortably sustain oneself on leaves of copper; Extras: Affects Others; Flaws: Only Affects Others). [1pp.]
Spiritways: Transmit 3 (medium: Sherwood Forest; Extras: Affects Others; Flaws: Only Affects Others). [3pp.]
