Calc request for @MatthewSchroeder
Arch-Curate Vyrthur destroys the Chantry of Auri-El.
Spoiler:I've been meaning to do this one for a while, but wasn't sure how to scale it. Thankfully, Matt found some shots with which we can scale the size of the Chantry of Auri-El.
There seem to be 12 pillars there. A quick search reveals that the average height of a man is 175cm (1.75m).
63 pixels = 1.75m
1 pixel = 1.75m/63 = 0.0277777778m
0.0277777778m X 135 = 3.75m
0.0277777778m X 116 = 3.22222222m
0.0277777778m X 24 = 0.666666667m
0.0277777778m X 72 = 2m
126 pixels = 3.75m
1 pixel = 3.75m/126 = 0.0297619048m
0.0297619048m X 378 = 11.25m
0.0297619048m X 41 = 1.2202381m
0.0297619048m X 211 = 6.27976191m
0.0297619048m X 197 = 5.86309525m
29 pixels = 3.22222222m
1 pixel = 3.22222222m/29 = 0.111111111m
0.111111111m X 5 = 0.555555555m
0.111111111m X 9 = 0.999999999m
0.111111111m X 153 = 17m
0.111111111m X 21 = 2.33333333m
0.111111111m X 254 = 28.2222222m
Volume of the main room as a rectangular prism, of the roof bit as half a cylinder and the pillars as rectangles.
H = 11.25 - 3.75
V = 7.5 X 17 X 28.2222222
28.2222222 - (0.666666667 X 2) = 26.8888889m
17 - (0.666666667 X 2) = 15.6666667m
7.5 - 0.666666667 = 6.83333333m
V = 26.8888889 X 15.6666667 X 6.83333333
V = 3598.33333 - 2878.60494
V = 28.2222222 X 2 X 2
= 112.888889 X 2
V = 28.2222222 X 0.666666667 X 0.666666667
= 12.5432099 X 2
V = 225.777778 - 25.0864198
V = 0.555555555 X 0.999999999 X 6.83333333
= 3.79629629 X 12
V = 2.33333333 X 0.999999999 X 6.83333333
= 15.9444444 X 12
28.2222222m - 6.27976191m = 21.9424603m
V = πr^2h
= π X 5.86309525^2 X 21.9424603
21.9424603 - (0.666666667 X 2) = 20.609127m
5.86309525 - (0.666666667 X 2) = 4.52976192m
V = πr^2h
= π X 4.52976192^2 X 20.609127
V = 2369.67667 - 1328.49591
Now to add all of that up.
V = 719.72839 + 200.691358 + 45.5555555 + 191.333333 + 520.59038
Finally for our energy. It looks pretty violent, so obviously we'll be going with violent fragmentation, which is 69000000 joules per m^3.
E = 1677.89902 X 69000000
= 115775032380 joules
= 27.6708968403442 tons of TNT
Arch Curate Vyrthur destroys the Chantry of Auri-El = 27.671 tons of TNT
The spell Meteor calls down a meteorite from the constellations. We have have seen the stars of the constellations to be floating at seemingly unfixed points.
Even if those are holes to Aetherius or something else, we still have a sense of size and scale, which is similar in scope to our universe. Let's get the timeframe...
The timeframe is 1.58 seconds. The distance from Earth to the nearest star is 4.22 lightyears, or 3.99234299e16m.
T = 3.99234299e16m/1.58s
= 84284954.2 C
Meteor = 84284954.2 C
Also keep in mind that there are other attacks and spells that allow for the interaction with stars and the Sun in The Elder Scrolls, such as Auri-El's Bow, Nova and Spear Shards.
A post for @MatthewSchroeder for VBW, who's looking over TES stuff.
The Mundus/Aurbis contains infinite angles, with the line being one future/universe, and each angle adding infinite more futures.
[QUOTELoremaster's Archive: The Maelstrom Arena - Part 1"]Lord Fa-Nuit-Hen says, “Ah! The 'Weir Gate' leads, or will lead, to the Slipstream Realm where you mortals have or will establish your Battlespire Academy. Regarding the 'Slipstream' designation: mortals, of course, can only perceive Oblivion and the astronomical regions of the Mundus in terms of their own frames of reference. They 'see' only what they can comprehend, and often that isn't much. Furthermore, what they do comprehend often seems to drive them insane, though the rate of mental deterioration varies with individuals. Twice upon a time, the Imperial Mananauts regularly ventured beyond Nirn, and in doing so learned that the mortal mind is best acclimated to other realities by gentle degrees. This is one of the reasons why Maelstrom seems to resemble aspects of your world—I wished it to be mortal-friendly, or at least friendly enough for mortals to experience my arenas without distorting their mentalities! Anyway, the Mananauts will learn that it's best to train for Oblivion in a transition zone, a place where differing truths can co-exist without conceptual abrasion. At certain points, transliminal forces balance in standing waves, and these regions are designated 'Slipstream Realms.' We haven't actually been to Battlespire yet, have we, my Tutor? Would you please remember forward for me to tell the Quidnunc about this 'Weir Gate'?"[/QUOTE]
Even lesser Daedra have forms of a higher spatial comprehension than mortals can conceive.
Magic works its way through higher spatial dimensions, and this allows Shadow Mages to travel between worlds by moving at obscure angles.
Ald'ruhn is absolutely huge.
And the emperor crabs were wiped out by House Redoran, with Skar (the emperor crab who's corpse made Ald'ruhn) was killed by a perticularly powerful warrior.
44 pixels = 1.77m
1 pixel = 1.77m/44 = 0.0402272727m
0.0402272727m X 506 = 20.35500m
0.0402272727m X 1345 = 54.1056818m
I'll go with the dimensions of a mubcrab for this.
M2 = (H2/H1)^3*M1
Let's find our energy with GPE.
E = 20.35500 X 9.807 X 27810645.1
= 5.55160227e9 joules
= 1.326864787285 tons of TNT
Skar's minimum energy = >1.326 tons of TNT
This is just the GPE of his body without including his legs or KE, so his power would certainly be higher. Even standard giants have feats of this level, and Skar is far beyond your garden variety giant.
T = 12450.7252645/5.7
Next up is how high a magnitude it would rank as. Given the great rumbling we hear, I'd say it ranks as V (rather strong).
That would be about a 5 or 6 on the richter scale.
Creating a nomogram from scratch is too painful to replicate, and none of the programs work for me, so I'll take a shortcut; do this with a shorter nomogram, then times it to get the result needed.
20037.5/800 = 25.046875
25.046875 X 1750 = 43832.0312mm
Mg = log(base10)43832.0312+3log(base10)[5.5*2184.33777]-2.92
Put that into the earthquake calculator, and we have 5.5113754834575E+25 joules, or 13.1725035455 petatons.
Greybeards call Dovahkiin = 13.173 petatons
This is consistent with Dovahkiins Storm Call from the top of High Hrothgar too. Then again, given the whole Alduin being on par with a Dragonbreak, Oblivion Crisis or Planesmeld, this isn't even close to his best in the end.
There's a ton of misconceptions about the Tribunals power in The Elder Scrolls. I'll make it clear now; they aren't just powerful warriors or wizards who can destroy countries, they're bonafide gods who can create and destroy entire universes, possibly everything. Let's begin with Sotha Sil. Sotha Sil is the Clockwork God, who created the Clockwork City.
The stars in the Clockwork City are made of star-data composed of Seht's memories.
After Nocturnals true "form" breaks through the defences, she engulfs the entire Clockwork City in seconds. Divayth Fyr holds her back long enough for Sotha Sil to be reunited with his shadow. Upon gaining his full power back, he banishes Nocturnal from the Clockwork City.
Sotha Sil reshapes the Mundus from the Clockwork City.
Aios, the AI who governs the substrata operations of the Clockwork City, classifies Almalexia as an existiantial threat level to the Clockwork City, along with the Numidium. Note that Nocturnal (as the Ur-dra no less) is just moderate.
In order for the Tribunal to ascend to godhood, it took the power of Keening and Sunder, powerful Dwemer artifacts that can alter the laws of reality.
We'll go with the last one. The race of the man closest to the Dwarven Centurion is undeterminable, so we'll just go with the average male height of 1.77m.
537 pixels = 1.77m
1 pixel = 1.77m/537 = 0.00329608939m
0.00329608939m X 319 = 1.05145252m
56 pixels = 1.05145252m
1 pixel = 1.05145252m/56 = 0.0187759379m
0.0187759379m X 170 = 3.19190944m
0.0187759379m X 87 = 1.6335066m
0.0187759379m X 184 = 3.45477257m
3.19190944m + 1.6335066m + 3.45477257m = 8.28018861m
0.0187759379m X 62 = 1.16410815m
0.0187759379m X 70 = 1.31431565m
0.0187759379m X 512 = 9.6132802m
18 pixels = 1.31431565m
1 pixel = 1.31431565m/18 = 0.0730175361m
0.0730175361m X 551 = 40.2326624m
The average weight of the human body per cm^3 is 1.01g. The average global body mass is 62kg. Using sqare law, we'll scale up the volume of the Centurion from an average person.
M2 = (H2/H1)^3 X M1
= (8.28018861/1.77)^3 X 62
But we're not done yet, as the Dwemer isn't a thing of flesh, but metal. Given the Dwarves made the Brass God, I think their average anumunculi will be made of brass. Brass weighs 8.4g per cm^3. The density of the human body is 0.89g per cm^3. Looking at my old Atlantis calc for help.
M = 6347.35193/0.89 X 8.4
I can't find the latent heat of vaporization for brass, but brass is mostly copper. Specific heat of copper is 390, and it's melting point is 1084.62 C.
E = 59907.5912 X 390 X 1084.62
= 2.53410189e10 joules
We'll save that later to add them all together at the end. Latent heat of melting for copper is 206137.
E = 59907.5912 X 206137
= 1.23491711e10 joules
Next for the boiling point.
E = 59907.5912 X 390 X (2927 - 1084.62)
= 4.30452937e10 joules
Finally for vaporization.
E = 4720692 X 59907.5912
= 2.82805287e11 joules
At last for our total energy. There's also a hollowness factor of 0.15, so we'll times it by that.
E = 2.53410189e10 + 1.23491711e10 + 4.30452937e10 + 2.82805287e11
= 363540770700 X 0.15
= 54531115605 joules
= 13.033249427581 tons of TNT
Let's also get the energy for the pillar getting knocked down.
V = lhw
= 1.16410815 X 1.31431565 X 9.6132802
Fragmentation of rock per m^3 is 8000000 joules.
E = 14.7083722 X 8000000
= 117666978 joules
= 0.028123082696 tons of TNT
Dovahkiin vaporizes a Dwemer Centurion = 13.033 tons of TNT
Dwemer Centurion smashes a pillar = 0.0281 tons of TNT
Scans from the Battlespire Athenaeum.
The Battlespire resides in a pocket universe, and serves like a space needle. Also, we have the history of the previous games, and the dimension Jagar Tharn sealed Uriel Septim VII in was also a pocket universe (in Arena, we see planets and stars in it, so it's a universe of some extent). On top of that, the Hero of Battlespire is already a powerful mage at the start of the game.
Once again, Battlespire resides inside a pocket universe.
Daedric Sigils can be harmful to mortals and other enemies.
Dagon sent thousands of daedra to deal with you.
These daedra are unbelievably strong.
The context behind beating Dagon. Dagon also swears vengance on the Empire, which he gets.
Confirmation of Chimere's fate, and how Dagon threw his island into Oblivion and cursed him with immortality.
Dagon has many pocket universes which serve as government centres over other pocket universes.
The Nocturnals are servants of the Daedric Princess Nocturnal.
Jaciel Morgen is a luitenent of Nocturnal and is trapped in a Dreamsleeve
The Shade Perilous is a realm of Nocturnal, who's enemies with Dagon. Also, Angada has a transmorph spell and can look like anyone.
Jaciel Morgen was trapped in a Dreamsleeve.
Should Nocturnal and Dagon battle, it would rip open the sky and destroy all mortal things (a fight that Jaciel believes that Nocturnal can win).
The Ideal Masters
The Ideal Masters are non-corporeal entities that exist as Platonic Ideals. Also, weak seams between worlds attract lost souls, which get sucked into the Soul Cairn.
The name of an Ideal Master is so great that you cannot even know it, and one can to any of the outer realms through the Magicka Font so long as you know it's name.
The Daedric alphabet translation.
It had additional editing by Bruce Nesmith.
After looking at the Skyrim and Oblivion Primas, I've finally gotten the Morrowind Prima scans up! It's not as good as the Oblivion or anywhere near the Skyrim guides, but it's still nice.
The introduction, which talks about Dagoth Urs history and his return, as well as a general history of the previous games. It points out that you're far to weak to face Dagoth Ur at the start of the game, and must get stronger and the right tools.
Sixth House cultists will awaken after receiving dreams from Dagoth Ur.
Dagoth Ur sustains the existence of the Ash Vampires.
Dagoth Ur can't die so long as he's connected to the Heart of Lorkhan, and can survive as a disembodied spirit.
Vivec stopped the fall of Baan Dau. Not only that, but it confirms his battle with a manifestation of Mehrunes Dagon, where he gave his sword to the Prince.
Mount Assarnibibi is said to be the place where Molag Bal oversaw the 99 Lovers of Boethiah giving birth to Almalexia.
The Dwemer had machines that could control the weather.
Information on the crashed reverse engineered Dwemer airship.
While M'aiq has some interesting things to say sometimes, what he says about the Dwemer is nonesense (that they were short).
Ignatius Flaccus restores Dwemer Animunculi and programs them to fight in an arena.
Hircine fights you in one of his aspects to make the fight fair.
Long ago, Hircine walked the earth (though this may just be refering to previous Bloodmoons).
The werewolf ice statues can come to life.
Creatures & enemies
The foes of Morrowind.
The foes of Tribunal.
The foes of Bloodmoon.
A list of artefacts.
Information on Keening & Sunder.
The acknowledgements section. Not only did Pete Hines edit the prima, but he worked on it hard enough that he has an acknowledgements section.
Azura stops the ash storms over Mournhold after Almalexia's death.
Wulf is confirmed to be a manifestation of Tiber Septim, once again confirming that Tiber Septim indeed rose to godhood.
Reference to the next game, Oblivion.
Anything you wish for me to look up in it, I'll be happy to do so.
A big rant on Alduins power, and some misconceptions about it that I feel need clearing up.
It's time to address a misconception that I wish to straighten out. I may have said this in the past myself, but thinking over it it's not only incorrect, it's blatantly false. People often talk about Alduin fulfilling his role as the World-Eater, and how he's not doing that in Skyrim, and chooses to rule it instead. This lost him almost all of his power. After my last replay though, and looking at some other evidence, I see no proof of this. Paarthunax says that he tried to claim the lordship of Akatosh, and this caused his doom due to his arrogance of his own power.
Trying to claim the lordship of Akatosh could mean many things, but it does not necessarily means he rejected his own role as World-Eater. Infact, would someone arrogant of their own power throw it away? Given what Paarthunax and the Greybeards say, Alduin is still not only capable of eating the World, but going to do so.
Skyrim:Elder Knowledge - The Unofficial Elder Scrolls Pages (UESP)
Lore:The Dragon War - The Unofficial Elder Scrolls Pages (UESP)
Defeating Alduin requires learning Dragon Rend from the original ancient heroes who created the words of power (who were the first humans to make words in the dragon tonge, which would make them pretty powerful, but more on that later). This shout enforces the concept of mortality on a dragon.
Skyrim:Alduin's Bane - The Unofficial Elder Scrolls Pages (UESP)
"It's no use!"
Even with dragonrend, this is not enough to defeat Alduin. You need to be comparable in power to Alduin as well as having dragonrend to defeat him. Dragonrend makes him vunerable, but it still requires someone of great strength to defeat him. Without it, he's invincible. Odahviing comes to you because he feels that you actually have the power to challenge Alduin. On top of that, Alduin is by far the most powerful of dragons, and the other dragons (even together) didn't dare defy him.
Skyrimdahviing - The Unofficial Elder Scrolls Pages (UESP)
An aspect of an insane feat that I thought of another impressive aspect to;
56 pixels = 1.77m
1 pixel = 1.77m/56 = 0.0316071429m
0.0316071429m X 380 = 12.0107143m
T = 12.0107143m/5.39106e-44s
= 7.431457e35 C
Barriers close unsustained gates = 7.431457e35 C
An absolutely insane feat that was hiding in plain sight all along; the energy to sustain portals between Mundus and Oblivion.
And looking at a standard gate, it takes a lot more than 1 joule a second.
And if you question this level of power, keep in mind that the energy in a sigil stone was enough to destroy a pocket dimension of Coldharbour.
Energy to sustain a gate to Oblivion (per second) = >5.391 FOE
Keep in mind also that people like Shalidor and Divayth Fyr can open portals to Oblivion at will with raw power.
At first this seemed hard, but there is a way we can scale (about 7:00 into the above video). The average height of a woman is 64.6 inches, or 1.64084m.
142 pixels = 1.64084m
1 pixel = 1.64084m/142 = 0.0115552113m
0.0115552113m X 259 = 2.99279973m
127 pixels = 2.99279973m
1 pixel = 2.99279973m/127 = 0.0235653522m
0.0235653522m X 471 = 11.0992809m
31 pixels = 11.0992809m
1 pixel 11.0992809m/31 = 0.358041319m
0.358041319m X 641 = 229.504485m
229.504485m/2 = 114.752242m
The average depth of the ocean is 12,100 feet, or 3.68808km (3688.08m). Volume as a cylinder.
V = πr2h
= π X 114.752242^2 X 3688.08
The average density of oceanic crust is 3.0g/cm^3.
M = 1.52571201e+14 X 3
We'll get our energy with GPE.
E = 1844.04 X 9.807 X 457713603000
= 8.27752178e15 joules
= 1.97837518642 megatons
Aranias raises Silatar= 1.978 megatons
Well, that was a lot less than I expected...still impressive though. Also, though the landreshaping skill is unique to Aranais (though there are different kinds of earth-shaping magic), her raw power isn't; Andor has more raw power than she does (prior to her becoming the Wilderqueen).
A friend pointed this out to me; you see near giant camps the remains of those foolish enough to bother them.
Multiple examples of some poor bastard being crushed under a huge boulder. Dimensions of a human skull is below.
35 pixels = 21cm
1 pixel = 21cm/35 = 0.6cm
0.6cm X 772 = 463.2cm
463.2cm/2 = 231.6cm (2.316m)
0.6cm X 585 = 351cm
351cm/2 = 175.5cm (1.755m)
Volume as an ellispoid.
V = 4/3πabc
= 4/3 X π X 2.316 X 1.755 X 1.755
I'll go with granite for now, which weighs 2.6 tons/m^3.
M = 29.8800559 X 2.6
= 77.6881453 tons (77688.1453kg)
For our energy we'll go with GPE. For the total height, we'll also add on the height of a giant. As in a previous calc, the average height of a giant is 7.42400m. Looking at TheBlueDashs' Leone lifts a rock calc for help.
E = 7.42400m X 9.807 X 77688.1453kg
= 5656253.85 joules
= 0.001351877115201 tons of TNT
Giant crushes person with boulder = 0.001 tons of TNT
Giants can not only pick up these boulders, but throw them considerable distances, so this would ultimately be higher.
