I assume it's a w40k type dealio except different. More specifically, the "Aether" or w/e mirrors the universe, ebbs and flows as you said, cyclical but unpredictable, tied to reality but distinct from it, yadda yadda. While learning its intricacies is a long and arduous process, tapping into it is considerably easier than positioning a fleet of planet busters where you need them.
Am I close?

>A Demiurge is omnipotent in their universe. They can do anything and everything with no limitation.
If that were true, there would be no universal war. If you are omnipotent in your universe, you can effortlessly wipe out any invading army, erase any invading entity out of existence, permanently imprison visiting Demiurges, etc.
If you cannot, it's not omnipotence.
Look it up.

>Destroying galaxies is effortless childs play. They can alter the properties of the universe and rewrite the continuity of the universe, erasing and creating past and future events.

That makes a great deal more sense.

>Just threw out a figure. How much would you have it lift? I looked up regular Kaiju weight limits and they all seemed to fall around the 100 ton limit.
Honestly, I have no idea. A humanoid chassis for a weapons platform is a horrible idea to begin with, I haven't a clue why so many works of fiction insist on it.
That said, peak human lifting strength is about 3*bodyweight, so, maybe 75000 tonnes?
If you want it to be somewhat effective.
Square cube law makes this physically impossible but, hey, maybe your universe has tech that can act like a 3d muscle or someshit, I dunno.

Third point I think the term universal war is a misnomer. The original war was a multiversal war between demiurges, while the current setting is focusing on a universal war between incarnates (still multiversal in nature due to beings from outside the universe having a part).

Things have a tendency not to scale up terribly well when dealing with a universal scope. A power that seems cool in a one on one fight becomes utterly useless when faced with something broader in its application.
People that are supposed to have 1/100 the power of a Demiurge, a nigh-omnipotent being, somehow still bother recruiting and combating lowly humans.
Said Incarnates are somehow held at bay by a dude in a metal suit,
Angels are alleged to be comparable to nigh-omnipotent beings and yet tend to be treated off-handedly. Little is made of the fact that one patron enables you to call in dozens of these nigh-omnipotent godlings .

I will concede it's exceedingly difficult to have things be cool and make sense at the same time. Often one has to be sacrificed in favor of the other.
I would argue for a tiny bit fewer sacrifices in favor of coolness.

I guess I didn't play up the Theosophist's weird tricksterness as well as I could have. The Seer is more of sitting next to God's throne and hearing His words, while the Theosophist is more trolling the shit out of Satan.

Not that guy, but I'm starting to think he's not wrong. Especially his comment about scope and scale. You can claim your CYOA is about scope, but I'm not sure you actually took it into account as you wrote this, and I definitely think you didn't consider what you wanted the upper bounds of incarnate power to be in various areas. Moreover I think you underestimate what tech can actually do, what tech will do in the future, and just how little we understand about how the universe actually works - and what we've done with what little we understand.

I'm reminded of a Game of Thrones anecdote, from I think something from the production of the first season. George RR Martin was being shown the set for The Wall and marveled at how huge it was, and was flabbergasted when he was told the set was less than half the height of the book series' Wall. I get the same impression from some of the things you say.

That's the nature of fiction and even the best writers fall victim to it. Another good example is the Harry Potter series. J.K Rowling obviously did not consider all the implications of what she wrote for her world. The most flagrant being the time turner of course but there where way more such as liquid luck. The UW setting feels more galactic in scale DESU with the characters at different WH40K power levels. Saying he underestimates tech is a hard thing to call since we are nowhere near the level described in the setting and any number of explanations could prevent the really high end uses that he may not be considering.

8+ BILLION planets with earth like conditions for life in just the milky way. Now multiply that by the 100 billion other galaxies.

I don't want the cyoa to be at a true universal scale for the above reason. At the "proper" level it would not be very fun for us (humans) to imagine, it is just too far removed from our reality. Sorry even if I am a "god" of the universe, I would prefer to imagine it as a cool adventure with godly melee weapons with my best pals Odin, Ra, and Vishnu, as opposed to say changing the laws of physics to some end. The setting still works at a multiverse level, and the only reason the fantasy got broken was one anon complained about magic over and over and over and over until the author said in frustration "THE DEMIURGES ARE OMNIPOTENT AND MAGIC CAN DO ANYTHING INCLUDING DESTROY GALAXY'S". This should not be true to make sense to the setting shown. BUT the demiurges and incarnates are the most powerful beings in the multiverse and their struggles affect everyone.Being the "ruler of the universe" is possible goal if the right things exists (communication, travel capability, etc) although the bureaucracy would be in of itself close to infinite. Magic doesn't have to destroy galaxy's in an instant to be superior to tech. And the assertion that tech is so much better (which prompted the whole thing) is based on what a bunch of futurists THINK tech could maybe do. We have no idea what it can do and more importantly what can be done in the SETTING.

Speak for yourself if you're not the creator. The creator could have put it on a single galaxy scale. The whole multiverse things falls flat on its face if you can't even deal with just 1 universe.

The only reason it is as big as it is to begin with is it is largely a copy of "Kill Six Billion Demons". The setting still works though but the main characters should be viewed as incredibly powerful planeswalkers not omnipotent gods. Just because the setting takes place in multiple realities does not mean it "falls flat on its face" for only reaching a certain scale at the individual character level. If you really want a CYOA at universal scale go play the John Paul Sartre cyoa. Ultimately it will be at the scale the author wants it and he is well within his rights to make it how he sees fit. Neither of our wants matter in that regard.

>A more third-person view:

Once upon a time, there was a sorceress of great power, by the name of Svellvif. Born a mere runt among the Giants, only just above seven feet, she made up for her lack of stature in magical might.

The Giants were at war. They were the masters of Ice, but the Dragons were the masters of Fire, and the Raiju the masters of Lightning. The three sides had been evenly matched since the dawning of the world.

As she grew, she brought her magic to bear against the Dragons and the Raiju, finding only two equals to her control of the primal forces - Raijin, an old Raiju mage, and Kafsimon, a fledgling Dragon. As their escalation of the endless war tore whole continents apart, an unexpected power appeared.

They called her the Green Mother, and she brought true Life to the world. With her forces in tow, she cast the three armies down, sealing them beneath the earth. But the three great mages were pulled aside, for theirs was to be a worse fate.

First, Raijin was cast into a world without magic, his essence scattered upon the four winds that the clouds might forever shed his tears of suffering. Then, Svellvif was cast onto the north of the planet, to be trapped beneath the ice. At first, she chained Kafsimon beneath a volcano - but the connection she had opened to that world revealed that Svellvif had escaped her prison, and sought to make that world her own. The weapons of the people there could do nothing, and her ice pushed against the fires of their industry - so the Green Mother sent them a message.

They were to focus their greatest weapons on Svellvif's stronghold, and as they fired, Kafsimon's own fire was turned against him. Now a living bomb, he too was hurled into that world, and the explosion shook it to its core. Svallvif was dead... but the great cities were torn asunder. Countless billions died.

To the survivors, the Green Mother gave two gifts.

The first was healing - she closed the wounds of the land, and made the world whole and livable again. Creatures not seen for centuries and millennia once more walked and flew and swam.

The second was magic. She drew a portion of the power from her world into theirs, placing it in great wells. She hoped that with this power, the survivors would learn to live in harmony with the land, rather than taking from it.

When she left, she had not taken their short lives into account. Soon, there were tribes among them, who had forgotten where they came from. Soon, their history came to repeat itself, and empires grew on the backs of slaves. But the world was forever changed.

The ice grew outward from Svellvif's tomb, her spirit restless. She had already bound Naudgir to herself in life, and it was this half-broken slave who had built her mausoleum.

As the ice grew outward, so did the bones of those who had lived Before rise from their rest and marched on the cities of the living.

Now the ice encroaches on a kingdom on the once-rich north seas, and its king has sent his son with a mission - to seduce Naudgir, believing her to be the one in charge of the ice - Svellvif's name forgotten - and thus bring her under his control. But a wise prophet gave the prince another mission. The tomb in the North must be destroyed, and every body within it must be purged. So to the prince he gave the light of the Sun, a new power in this world. A power that could put the dead to rest once and for all.

Now he stands at the very crown of the world, torn between his father's command and his prophet's orders. The Chooser of the Slain stands before him - and she has begged him for death.

Magic isnt in Spell form, like D&D. Its raw energy that you can form into whatever you want using your imagination. It has much more uses than just throwing a fireball or shit like that.

Demiurges killed other Demiurges. There servants killed the followers of other Demiuges. Some of the Patrons that were alive back for the first Universal War might have killed Demiurges.

>I haven't a clue why so many works of fiction insist on it.

Incarnates start out at a "base" strength level. They grow in power as they kill more Incarnates. I really cant write about that though because its beyond the scope of the CYOA.

What do you think my problem with scale is? Care to give examples?

>Said Incarnates are somehow held at bay by a dude in a metal suit,

You start off as a powerful planeswalker type and move up to becoming an omnipotent god. Its about a progression.

Here, it was going to be in the next update.

>Tablets of the OLD LAW – Large white stone tablets inscribed by the Angels themselves. Serves as a source of guidance for those that submit to the rule of the Angels and a warning to those that don’t. The OLD LAW is a convoluted recording of all the lessons of GOD taught to the Blind Idiot, his first creation. GOD spoke in riddle, metaphor, and allegory with his true lessons always obscured to those not clever enough to see behind the words. The lessons were not meant for the Angels to hear as they lack creativity but they listened anyways and misunderstood the words of their beloved GOD. In his absence the Angels turned to the archaic recordings of his first lessons and narrowly applied them as strict rules for all things to live by. The OLD LAW is a large and complex system of many authoritarian and sometimes contradicting commandments that, at one point or another, dictate every facet of life from the correct way of sitting to the correct way of smiling. The higher laws are universally recognized, commandments like no theft, murder, rape, or deceit. Others laws explicitly forbid the Angels from identifying with a particular gender or being corrupted by the influence of the material world. Demiurges are recognized as the rightful rules of the physical multiverse and that the order of reality must be maintained from the abuses and misuse of excessive evil magic. There is one commandment the Angels do not enforce, the first commandment given by GOD, he commanded for all things to “DO AS THOU WILL.” COST: 2

Not only am I not sure that I want to steal the core without knowing what the consequences would be (what the "benefactor" gets out of it), I'm not sure I could even get it first, as her warning at the end claims. My luck will be used to make me a large sum of legitimate money, while sabotaging those who block my promotion opportunities. I'll live a moderately hedonistic lifestyle, which will be both fun and a good way of hiding criminal expenses and the cost of research on the core and my benefactor.

Then, before any of my research bears fruit, one of you jerk anons will steal the core before me. But I'll be in a pretty solid place as long as that doesn't cause Armageddon. Perhaps I will manage to rule this doomed world.

The rule would reasonably be interpreted to make a furry pic in a character art thread against the rules, but not as part of a larger pic like that. Besides that, the issue here is that you can't draw a solid line between many types of staple fantasy and myth creatures like minotaurs and lizardmen, but the good news there is that that rule was mean for shitty furry porn in the first place, so it's very unlikely to ever be applied to something like this, or on this board at all really, because it's a blue board and the really problematic furry pictures being illegal here are superseded by other rules, like "don't post porn on blue boards".

This realm was once a a land of pure nature, before an extraversal probe crashed into it. The probe fused with one of the native animals, and through it spread a payload of microscopic constructs for inscrutable reasons. Now, after ages of transformation, the realm has become a bizarre hybrid of primeval nature and futuristic technology, with every plant and animal inside it seemingly working as one.
The stag that the probe fused with has long since had it's skin rot away, exposing the dull metallic automaton that remained. It sometimes acts like a stag, other times like a drone; but most times, it simply watches and records what every construct connected to it does.

Then you take the ally/contact that can get you all the company you like of various sorts and you either have an absent husband forever at war with your enemies (and isn't that bad of a catch if he wins anyway, can always have him Removed by going espionage training or shift him around as you like via magical training if you take the time and effort for it).

That was my takeaway from the second page of suitors, near the bottom where it introduces the unusual suitors.

My realm is a traveling good aligned adventure’s guild. I’m much less a king and more like a guild master. Every lunar month, I can teleport the portal to my domain. Where we go is debated on where we can do the most good and voted on by the adventures (lieutenants). I can’t vote but I can veto a decision. When we teleport I stay with my personal group (guardian and personal guards) to protect the domain’s civilians and the adventurers do whatever needs to be done. We only accept good aligned people and anyone is free to leave whenever they wish (this also applies to the civilians). We don’t discriminate on race, only alignment and anyone wishing to join us is heavily scrutinized. The civilians live free of disease and poverty and work to support the Guild so we can in turn support good kingdoms and villages.

It always surprises me how weird the dialogue is. Not sure if it's the translation, or if it just never had a high priority in the first place.

For CYOAs, how important is the point system? Do you guys prefer more strict rules for allocating your points, or do you prefer more of a free for all with picking whatever you want?

>> No.49510768


Just because you read about some imaginary tech in a novel or science magazine dosent mean we will be actually be able to create it. Futurists are more often wrong than not, and that's without even adding the metaphysics in the cyoa.

The author is well within his writes to declare the upper limits of what science and technology can do.

So if you don't take the reaper witch everyone you kill can pretty much be resurrected, and dark magic is pretty much useless against anyone relatively important because they're all protected against it.

What the hell?

>> No.49510885

What do you mean by allocating them? Is it in the same sense that you allocate stat points into categories in some RPGs? I think having some rules to that would be fine, but "prerequisites" in that sense seem arbitrary.

If you mean the structure of how you spend your points across the CYOA itself, I prefer having points that you spend on particular sections ala Domain Master or Dark God, as having one point pool oftentimes doesn't make complete sense. Having separate point totals also makes it easier for me to make certain decisions.

Being a guy has been pretty ok this time around, but this is a new life, and I think it would make the sister who went through so much to get me back that much happier. And bathing together sounds nice And I can spread the legend of "The immortal princess" if I play my cards right

>High Energy Room

Well, I've always wanted muscles but I'm a lazy fuck, so this fixes that right up. Though Dollhouse and My Room are both very tempting


Not even a choice. The others are great and I think I'll get a long with them like I supposedly used to, but I owe Teresa a great deal and she can teach me to fight. And she sounds far too happy for me to say no


I have no need to explain this

>Crystal Dagger

Anything that can turn from a knife to the Dragonslayer on the fly is as close to the perfect weapon as a guy could ask for

>Warp Crystal

Anyone who get's too close is getting ORA ORAed. With a sword.

>Midnight Sarcophagus

This'll come in handy for the job I have in mind. It sure as hell isn't replacing my actual bed though.


No suitors for now, because whoever I was before, I still have the mind of a mostly straight man. Though I will keep some contact info for future reference. And ask Teresa where the dungeons are.

I'm not the most organised person, and I'm about to take on the responsibilities of a royal in a culture I'm not yet familiar with. Having someone to help me out with that sort of thing would be a godsend. Also she's cute as fuck and FOOOOD.


She can fight things I can't, get information from the dead, and probably knows a lot of weird esoteric crap from her order, all of which will come in handy. And that outfit tho.

I'm probably keep a few of these guys on call, like I said, there are a lot of useful people here.


Call me cliched (did I spell that right?) but I want to fight, more on that in the story to follow.

>Crystal Mastery

More crazy shit with my weapon and time dilation crystal sounds fun as hell.


If I'm going to be a knight and got to war on the front lines, people will need a reason to follow me.

>Force Magic

Good for combat utility and unexpected attacks. Also invisible Unlimited Blade Works.

>Crystal Knight

This'll mostly be covered in the story, but this is the job I'd take. Fight for my people, be a hero and all that. Also

>Crystal Ring

And with that, I've maxed out my item effectiveness, I think.

>Adopt the Orphaned Princesses

I have a weakness for cute girls and lamias. These two are cute as hell, and they deserve better than what they got. Also political clout in Salns I guess.

>Join the Fight

Pretty straightforward: I chose a martial build for a reason, time to ride to war. And this'll be a great political move/training mission. Time to spread the fear of the "immortal princess".

>Help test New Magic

I'll be honest here: this just sounded really fun. Other benefits aside, I can't help out in warfare only, and I might as well pick something useful to the people and less stressful to me.

Only immediately about the lair does the misty haze that hues the whole maze in soothing tones of silver and emerald give way to howling wind, black clouds, and booming thunder. There, the dragon and his 11 drakes seclude themselves from the forest below, careful to smite any who approach with ferocious bolts of lightning.

Very few who enter the Green Maze ever see the dragon, and even those who survive encountering him do not always escape.

Sorry in advance if this is edgy and stupid, it's pretty much how I'd react if placed in the situation of the CYOA.

The life I had before this one wasn't special. I was no one, my ambition non-existent, my only thrill in life was the idea of leaving it for something better. I knew I would die unremembered, maybe not alone, but my name would die with me, another random bastard unwilling and unable to change the world for the better. But now my wish is granted. A world of magic, a family who cares for me more so than my last, and the opportunity to be what I'd always wanted to be: a hero. It would be hard, I would make mistakes, I would suffer. But I would survive, and remake my self into the person I've always wanted to be. I have lives to save, a people to protect, and an enemy to kill. All I'd asked for in my previous life had been given in this one. And yes, I could bring the technology of my past life into this world and shy rocket it into the future. But I have seen what that technology brought with it: complacency in our people, poison in our world, cowardice in our warriors. I will not inflict the curse of their progress upon my people, not yet at any rate. I have found a place where I feel I belong, and while I will look to the memories of my old life with fondness, I will not mourn it.

Sorry if that was weird and terrible. Once again, questions and comments are appreciated. If anyone's still interested in how I'd go for the Yuri end, please ask.

Oh, I thought you were the anon asking about sword-fist combat, not a separate one just asking about anime. It has the ever-popular isekai theme.

It's musou combat. Everyone trained enough to be important can fight against anything they want with their weapon of choice, even fists. Although just punching the armor directly would be most effective, they're the type that's strong enough to create damaging shockwaves from punches.
