Hahahaa... I can hardly complain about the mechanics, now, can I, when they're one of the main reasons I joined the game? Besides, like Daemon said, it's not like your character is the only one that could be considered a threat to others... ah, but regardless, forgive me my fun. Anyway, I'm in the middle of typing up a small response now in fact, sayin' as you're all probably a bit tired of reading posts triple the length of what they need to be (about an hour later - Well, that was my initial intention. Bugger all good that did me, eh..? >.> Anyway, I'll write more on my character's level up and artifact creation later which will include a response to Daemon's invitation to his arena and Bakuvii's attempt to contact me, assuming the, err, 'discussion' with your character is over, Crovius.
Oh, just remembered; I have a question that has already been answered elsewhere in these 15 pages, but I can't seem to find it again. In order to increase one of your points, do you have to spend the amount you want the attribute raised to (as in, to make a power of 4 go up to 5 by spending 5 points) or do you have to spend the number that you have so far (same situation as before, only spending 4 points instead)?
Whatever vestiges of its wasted patience had now been given fully to anger.
O stopped one once again, returning suddenly in its wrath to address the mighty being that had the sheer arrogance and audacity to claim such an incredible title as death incarnate. The din created by O's many highly agitated denizens - all of whom swarmed and screamed within their small bubble with all the unrestrained fury of an army of locusts - almost prevented O's own voice from even being heard, despite the abnormal keenness of this final visitor's hearing. But it nonetheless managed to ascend above the cries; every syllable and inflection of its mechanical articulation slick with contempt and derision.“The others have left this place, thereby granting to One the peace One wished for after One's toil in forging this perfect island... and yet you continue to persist in drawing out this meaningless debacle for no apparent reason, despite One's quite clear attempt to be rid of you! So One must ask a fairly direct question, if One may; are you merely deaf to One's words, Imperfect One, or did the Omniscient One see fit blight you with a curse of perpetual foolishness!?”
O was fully aware of how powerful this Teserath was, despite the inherent contradiction that lay within such an absurd concept. Indeed, perhaps it was not the wisest course of action to antagonize this creature, despite its abrasive attitude towards it.
However, O itself was not quite powerless itself, nor was it willing to allow this swaggering fool to disparage it any longer, even if it meant entering into such a potentially costly battle; and so the wind grew wild and fierce in the face of O's divine anger, swirling and coiling around the pair like a vast serpent, prepared to strike at any moment.
In turn, the blustering gale stirred the ocean below into a frenzied dance of waves the likes of which, perhaps, had not been seen since the birth of the world; tossing and turning to such degrees and dizzying heights that even the wilful explorers that worshipped the one known as 'Lux' might think twice about braving.
And yet, through it all, O continued to speak: every word, every sound, every feeling the conducting stick of the incredible orchestra of wind and water that had woven itself around this small corner of the planet.“One cares not a whit for your empty words or your sentiments, much less your functionless opinions on One's perfection! You go too far out of line, Imperfect One, and there shall be a reckoning!”
The song now reached a fearsome crescendo; the wind's ever-growing strength and celerity continuing to lead on the torrential curves and sways of the ocean in a majestic song and dance of the elements that seemed to unceasingly increase in its rapturous fervour... ...but!”
With a word, the winds and the waves died down; reducing itself to a mild breeze that drifted lazily over calm waters with all the suddenness of the onset. And O, the focal point of this incredible display, had also managed to regain its composure – floating effortlessly and serenely on a level equal to Teserath, with only the mild mutterings of the nano-bots within it giving even the slightest impression that it was still quite furious.“One has never claimed to be or will ever become an advocate of senseless war and battle, despite what you, Imperfect One, and your Imperfect Kind doubtless presume. One is not here to cleanse the imperfect, nor will One ever desire such a thing unless they actively work to undo One... and even then, One would be wroth to end them. After all, there is nothing quite so imperfect as a dead thing.
However, One cannot always presume upon the survival of the imperfect in the advent of perfection – as the interaction between One and this Imperfect One 'Lux' has made apparent to all – for One is, as you said, not omniscient. But, then again, neither is the Omniscient One itself truly omniscient, even if the name One's forefathers taught One were to cause One to presume otherwise, for why else would It create an endless plethora of worlds, only to destroy them after 'testing' them?
If the Omniscient One was truly omniscient such a waste of power would be frugal and unnecessary when It could just as easily create worlds that would never degenerate into chaos. One was made in the image of the Omniscient One, ergo One is not omniscient. Yet the Omniscient One is nonetheless considered perfect, which means – as a creature made in the image of the Omniscient One – One is perfect. Now, as One appears to have provided an answer to whatever point it was you were trying to make, One must ask that you depart now, Imperfect One 'Teserath'. One begs to the fates we shall not meet again under such onerous circumstances, if at all.”
Drifting away from Teserath for what it sincerely hoped was the final time, O descended on its island and slowly wandered along the edge of the circumference, checking for any damage that may have been inadvertently caused in its wrath.
