  2. I've gone over this in my TES respect thread, but I'm going to explain in these blogs the power of TES. Many may think that the Daedric Princes and Divines are only planetary, or solar system level at best. This mistake is understandable, I used to think so too, but you'd be wrong.The Daedric Princes are at least universal in power, likely multiversal for the more powerful Daedra.

    First off, let me quote the cosmology article, that explicitly states that the Aedra are infinite in size & mass.

    Hermaeus Mora's realm of Apocryphia stated multiple times to be infinite.

    The Daedric Princes create not just their own realms, but an inumerable number of planes of Oblivion, potentially an infinite number.

    This isn't even going into things like the Daedra's reality warping, time manipulation, immortality, soul manipulation, spacial manipulation, dimensional absorbsion and so on.

    If you want feats, here's the respect thread.
  5. Maxwell has always had some hax abilities, but the scope of his power was until recently unknown. In the crossover comic with DC, A Crisis of Imagination, this changes however. The comic isn't exactly Brian K. Vaughan material (still better than Archie Sonic), but at least it gives us some good feats.

    In the last issue, the entire multiverse is destroyed. Maxwell & his friends survive because they come from outside the multiverse.

    The Scribblenauts Anti-Monitor, though not as strong as the real-deal, is still formiddable, having destroyed & absorbed the entire multiverse and having become "Everything."

    The Scribblenauts fight the Anti-Monitor, occassionally surviving getting hit by his beams (that counts for something, right?)

    Eventually, Maxwell decideds to make an Anti-Anti-Monitor (The Monitor) to combat the Anti-Monitor. The Monitor is the same Monitor brought back from the dead, and is just as strong as the Anti-Monitor.

    As the Monitor is made of mater and the Anti-Monitor is made of anti-matter, the two cancel each other out (pretty sure it took more than that to win COIE, and this Anti-Monitor had come into contact with possitive matter before). Anyway, this produces infinite energy, which Maxwell converts into Starites and absorbs (somehow).

    Maxwell uses this power to completely remake the entire multiverse.

    That should be it for now. Not sure how cannon it is within DCs existance. It's a big boost for Scribblenauts, anyway.
  6. Time to attempt to explain Wakfu's cosmology. A map of it can be seem below...

    The entire cosmology, called the Krosmoz, consists of several layers. Outside everything is the eternal dance of the goddess Eliatrope and the Great Dragon, representing creation & destruction respectively. At the edge of the Universe is the Incarnam, where souls are incarnated and reincarnated. This is where Wakfu enters the Universe. Externam seems to be the realm of permanent death or something similar. Stasis enters the universe through here.

    In the outer plain you can also find the Ingloriom (realm of the gods) and the Shukrute (realm of demons). These are seperated by the Astral Plane, which contains the Aether Plane. Inside the Aether Plain is the Material Plane. The Material plane is the mortal universe, and consists of numberless galaxies & solar systems, of which the World of Twelve is one.

    The creation story of the Krosmoz can be seen here...


    World of Twelve is the main planet in Wakfu. Other planets also exist (as said before and shown in the series & games). World of Twelve may also refer to the solar system, but mainly refers to the planet.

    More can be read here...


    It should also be noted that there's a difference between Universe and universe in the world of Wakfu. The sources are from Dofus Artbook Session 2 andDofus Mag 1 (which I don't have - I used the wiki, so sue me). Universe (capital U) may refer to the multiverse, due to some evidence. There's a quote about one of the gods, Osamondas, that implies there may be parrallel universes.

    Much of this depends on the infomation available, much of which is still in French. More will no doubt follow in the future when I find it or it's translated (or I try to translate it myself). Interesting stuff though for an awesome series. Similar to The Elder Scrolls lore books.

  7. Others seem to be doing profiles, so here's one from me...

    Name: Hermaeus Mora, Demon of Knowledge
    Origin: The Elder Scrolls
    Gender: None (though refered to as male)
    Classification: Daedric Prince of Forbidden Knowledge
    Age: Nearly as old as the Universe
    Powers and Abilities: Super strength, speed, casualty manipulation, reality warping, immortality, time manipulation, telepathy, telekenisis, mindfuck, soul fuck, spacial manipulation
    Weaknesses: Cannot manifest his full power in Mundus or other protected realms
    Destructive Capacity: Multiversal (created Apocrythia, an infinite Universe, should be comparable to Aedra, who are infinite in size & mass, said to have created countless realms of Oblivion at the start of the world along with the other Princes)
    Range: Multiverse+
    Speed: Omnipresent in his own realm
    Durability: Multiversal
    Lifting Strength: Unknown, likely immserable
    Stamina: Infinite
    Standard Equipment: Oghma Infinium
    Intelligence: Prince of Forbidden knowledge, Apocryphia is an infinite library
    Notable Attacks/Techniques:

    - Plane Absorbsion - Can absorb unprotected planes of existance into his own.

    -Soul Drain - Consumes the victims soul & memories by stabbing them with one of his tentacles

    If you want conformation of feats, just ask me.
  8. The most popular view of the multiverse is an infinite amount of parrallel universes next to each other. But what if said universes weren't next to each other, but above each other? And each higher dimension is greater than the last? Say that 1-D space is a Universe and 2-D space is a universe and 3-D space is a universe and 4-D space is a universe and so on. Like 5-D Imps & the Ultimator from DC, & the Chousin from Tenchi Muyo! But that doesn't mean a being from the higher 3-D world can instantly beat a being from the lower 2-D world. A 3-D cannon fodder wouldn't be able to beat a 2-D universal. In Adventure Time, one of the most powerful beings is Prismo, a 2-D multiversial reality warper. If however a 2-D universal and a 3-D universal were to fight, I feel the 3-D universal would probably win due to having greater dimensions which bring power (or something). And if in each dimensional level there is not one universe, but an entire multiverse. And what if there are endless dimensions? Would a 4-D multiversial reality warper get one-shotted by a 438975423895894230570423572438905-D passerby because the latter just happens to exist on a greater level of existance?
  9. Before I get started, I should point out that the following is out of game content from Michael Kirkbride after he left Bethesda, so it's cannocity is questionable (Bethesda said that it "depends" if his OOG post-Bethesda works are cannon, though much of it ended up in The Elder Scrolls Online).

    Some may think that Anu & Padomay are the strongest beings in The Elder Scrolls (Padomay being a seperate entity to Sithis, I'll just point out), though a few months ago I learned about the existance of Satakal, who is the fused concepts of both Padomay and Anu. However, it seems like there is a being far above even Satakal. A being known only as the Godhead. Apparently there were always plans for a Godhead in the lore, but only vague hints of it exist. Michael Kirkbride wrote about just what the Godhead is, as follows...


    To make things clear, an Amaranth is a being capable of casually creating an entire infinite multiverse. The Godhead created an infinite amount of Amaranths. Therefore, the Godhead can casually create an infinite amount of multiverses.
  10. Here I will discuss Azrael, the most powerful known being in Discworld by Terry Pratchett (mostly from Reaper Man). Firstly, Death travels ridiculously faster than light.

    Now time for Azrael to show his face.

    Azraels cock tells Time what time is. Note that Time in Discworld is an immensly powerful entity that destroys the entire universe and remakes it every plank second.
    Infact, his clock is the source of time, and all the other Deaths may (or may not) be aspects of him.
    Some infomation on Azraels size.

    Azraels power is not just of one universe.

  11. Here I've attempted to made a "family tree" of the Gods in The Elder Scrolls. Dobt it's perfect, but it's a start. May redo it later.

  12. From The Fall Of Hyperion, second book in Hyperion Cantos. The Machine Ultimate Intelligence is the God of Machines, and it's pretty awesome. Here is Ummons monologue on its capabilities...

  13. More rambling about the Universe, just to clear some things up. This time, I shall discuss the astronomy schools of ancient China, to ascertain the size of the Universe in Journey to the West. Earlier, it was argued by some that the Universe in Journey to the West was not a Universe, the stars weren't real stars but just lights and so on. Before I get over it, first I must make some things clear.

    Firstly, there were three main schools of astronomy in Ancient China - the Gai Tan school, the Hun Tian school and the Xuan Ye school. The first school, the Gai Tan school, was the belief that the Sky and the Earth where divided into two hemispheres. Judging by the sources I've looked at, this school was dead by the 5th century AD. This left the Hun Tian school and the Xuan Ye school. Both remaining schools believed that the Earth was round, though the Hun Tian school said that the Earth floated in water.


    The belief in China that the Earth is round goes back to the Han Dynasty in the 2nd Century BC. Taoist artworks from a similar time also hinted that there where some who believed in a heliocentric system. Though many Chinese cosmological theories where terracentric, there wasn't anything in their religion or culture to say that it wasn't terracentric, so the belief of heliocentrism was taken in well when it arrived in China. Much better than it did in Europe.

    But most of all is the Xuan Ye school. The Xuan Ye system is one of the most advanced ancient astronomy systems out there. Here are their three main beliefs...

    The Xuan Ye believed in an infinite Universe with celestial bodies (such as stars, planets & moons) floating in them on their natural paths (not connected to any kind of Celestial spheres, as was thought in the West). This is incredibly advanced. The Hun Tian school also believed the Universe to be infinite (unfortunately I can't tell you more, because the Google Books didn't have that page for some stupid reason; the book in question being Early Chinese Work in Natural Science: A Re-Examination).


    Some may still try to argue that the planets, stars and moons were still not that big, but there is another point that disproves this. I'm not sure if it's from the Hun Tian School or the Xuan ye school, but it supports the belief of other worlds like Earth in the Universe in Ancient China (from Bo Ya Quin, or The Lute of Bo Ya, written in the 13th Century AD). This shows that they belived in other planets just as big as the Earth.

    And to finally confirm it all, Journey to the West was written in the 16th Century AD (1500s), long after all these beliefs become common.

    Long story short, Ancient Chinese Astronomers believed in an infinite Universe filled with countless other planets like our own round one. Thus the Universe in Journey to the West is infinite.
  14. Here you will find a my attempt at detailed map of the cosmology of The Elder Scrolls series. There are many complicated and convoluted parts of the lore that may not make sense, so to help outline it all, here is a map and description of The Elder Scrolls multiverse.

    Most of the sources where taken from in-game; the one about the size of the planets was first created in 1999, when Michael Kirkbride was the main writer for The Elder Scrolls. The only one that I'm not completly sure about is Imperial Census on Daedra Lords, and even then, most of that is backed up by what appears in the game.

    Sources are down below.












  15. Many thought that making a trilogy of the Hobbit is ridiculous. They haven't seen nothing yet. Obviously, a book that's just 42 pages long warrents a trilogy as well.

    This is no rumur; it is 100% official, confirmed by many reliable resources and J.K. Rowling herself; Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is going to become a trilogy of movies.

    The trilogy is to be set 70 years before Harry Potter, staring Newt Scamander, searching the World for magical creatures. and also involves New York somehow. It will come out on the 18th of November, 2016. J.K. Rowling is helping to write the script.
