Re: Eld's builds:Istvatha V’han Empress of A Billion Dimensi

One theory is that this is the reason for her weakness-she's less dimensionally 'stable' than beings that have near-infinite versions.

There are plenty of Centurions, more than one Dr. Destroyer, and plenty of Firewings (one actually helped lead the people of his dimension-Malva World-in a rare successful defense of their dimension from V'hanian invasion) but there is only one V'han.

Yeah, gonna cover Malvaworld later this month as a part 2 to my look at parallel realities. Short version its a universe where the Malvans beat the Elder worms got a chance to curse them with hedonism, so they kept expanding and now control the entire universe.

IIRC, there was only one Centurion. It's just his empowering event as a child made compies of himself and spread them through the multi-verse.

That might be right-but i imagine for someone like V'han, such a 'refraction' simply wouldn't work.

And there are probably a few other prominent Multiversally Unique individuals out there in the Crinoverse.

Yeah, the Centurion splitting was basically a one in a million thing that occurred by passing through the Terminus at a critical juncture. It would be virtually impossible for V'han to recreate, and even if she could she wouldn't want to, since she doesn't want the competition.

All kinds, it actually says she loves to be brought all kind of games, ranging from board games, card games, computer games, and games that require a holo chamber.

Her other hobbies include reading, music, and collection rare objects. So she' not only an expy of various world conquerors, but she has some Elders of the Universe mixed in as well.

Like i said that's part of her appeal as her character-tons of dimensions, tons of plot ideas. All kinds of games could involve V'han in some way.

A sword and sorcery fantasy world could involve heroes slaying a great evil and bringing peace to the land-prompted by an agent of V'han to make the world easy to conquer in the future. Stuff like that.

heck, my idea would actually fit the current events

"All the multiverse was nearly destroyed, stopped only by the heroes of many worlds, most notably your own. To this end, these games are meant as tribute to them, to celebrate our heroes so that they might show themselves as more than warriors."

naturally, the subtext is "afraid that reality storm will happen again? Join the Vha Empire, you'll be safe and reap all the benefits we're showing off."

And at the very least The Empress gets to scope out the competition, cherry pick recruits for her Superhuman legions, and so on

good justification for a joint crossover game, too

Toughness 12/2, Fortitude 7 (5), Will 13 (9),

Abilities 48+Powers 222+Advantages 18+Skills 36+Defenses 24=348

Complications
Responsibility As a member of the Imperial Battalion, Ars is subject to orders.
Reputation As someone who consorts with demons.
Obsession With all things demonic and infernal.
Motivation: Power Ars wishes to learn all she can about the various demons of the Multiverse, and gain power through that knowledge.

•Ruth Dellingham was a young woman interested in the occult who had the fortune to stumble onto a true book of magic, revealing her talent for spellcasting. She made pacts with demons after that, fascinated by the various netherworlds of the Imageria. At one point, she even tracked down the Hellstone (a true object of power for demons, said to link all the Netherworlds together) and she broke a piece off to fashion into a magic ring. Soon she became the supercriminal Ars Diavola, reveling in using her new powers. She was the greatest demonologist in modern earth history, but yearned to learn more. When Istvatha V'han first tried to conquer Earth, Ars was one of several superhumans who joined her empire, and Ars Diavolo has only grown in power then, with access to all the various demonic realms of the Empress' multiversial domain.

•Ars Diavola is very expense, with a few big summon effects, but she's not overwhelmingly powerful outside of that. Mostly just your basic mystic, she needs her variable for useful utility stuff like Remote Sensing, Flight, and Teleportation, but isn't bad in a fight-you don't get into the Imperial Battalion otherwise, Multiverse's greatest demon expert or not. Her greatest Summon power, which takes an hour, can call up a powerful Demon Prince (PL 13 or so) that will aid her, and thus, her squad of Battalioners in combat-giving them yet another leg up against the PCs.
