  • Hello there, I’m pretty new to this site. I was wondering if you could answer a question I have about the Cthulhu Mythos: Do literally everything we know about Azathoth and Yog-Sothoth just are infinitely small pieces of what they truly are?

    • Which means that if someone tried to someone these entities, it will always be an avatar? And even if the ‘real’ entities decided to intervene, it will still be an avatar, due to the words ‘real entities’ being things we humans made up? Based on what you said a few messages above, the Outer Gods could enter our universe at full power, but that’s also how we comprehend it. “Full power” is two words that humans made up.

      • summon* I’ll leave my next question here, but this time I was wondering if you could tell me what could happen.

      2) Let’s say there’s a room about 50 feet wide. On one side is the Necromonicon. On the other side is a ‘chant’ on a piece of paper, which can summon Azathoth. Now let’s say a cultist used the Necromonicon to summon Yog-Sothoth, while another cultist uses the paper to summon Azathoth. Both summons happen at the same time, in the same place. Now, what do you believe could happen?

  • Hi, I see you’re a knowledgeable member on the Star Wars EU, would you mind giving some input here? We began a discussion on if Anakin/Vader/Dooku would scale to the top tiers like Yoda, Windu and Sidious and nobody’s responded in a while.

    • Greetings.

      It appears that I have been too slow to respond, as the thread is now closed. I am sorry for the delay.

      In response to your question, it is my understanding – not from any one particular source or established fact, but from a lifetime of immersion into the Star Wars mythos – that Darth Vader and Darth Tyranus (Dooku) might indeed be scaled to Windu. Anakin, however, does not, and Obi-Wan Kenobi does not even deserve a mention; those two have many contemporaries who have proven comparable if not superior to them, such as Shaak Ti, Plo Koon, Depa Bilaba (who actually stalemated Mace Windu in a duel) and Yaddle. Even the likes of Agen Kolar (whom, as you must very well know, Darth Sidious casually killed in a single strike) could one-shot Quinlan Vos, who is often compared to Obi-Wan.

      Then, if we look at other eras, there are more Sith and Jedi than I would like to count who I believe are superior to the likes of Dooku, and who would utterly dominate Anakin and Obi-Wan with barely an effort... the Sith Emperor, Darth Jadus, Arcann, Thexan and Vaylin, Revan, Exar Kun, all the reigning Dark Lords of the Ancient Sith, the four Force-wielding player characters of Star Wars: The Old Republic, and the list goes on.

      Anakin and Obi-Wan are among the most overrated characters in Star Wars, mostly due to their screen-time and the favoritism of a few authors (and many, many fans). No one can deny that Obi-Wan is an excellent Jedi Master, and Anakin had an incredible potential (which he never even remotely lived up to), but they are not by any means top tier. Many of their feats are performed under very special circumstances and is not consistent with their regular displays of power compared to those that they sometimes go toe-to-toe with, including Anakin's defeat of Dooku.

      I understand the difficulty of comparing characters from different eras who never interact with each other, but simply looking at their displays of power in comparison to one another gives a clear indication of who is more powerful. For instance, there is absolutely no excuse to compare anyone to Darth Sidious without including Vitiate (and that includes Darth Caedus, who – aside from the claims that he is comparable to Luke – does not display anything that warrants him being in the same league as either of the two Emperors, or even in the top tier). Restricting ourselves to the era of the two trilogies, that becomes much more easy; my final verdict is that Dooku and Vader can be scaled to Windu, who is comparable to (but weaker than) Yoda and Sidious; however, as I said in the beginning, this is purely conjectural and not an established fact. Whether or not they should be scaled to Windu is entirely up to the standards of this wiki to decide.

      Again, I apologize for responding so slowly. But please, do not feel discouraged from calling upon me again if there is another debate where my input might be helpful, and I shall do my best to find the time to respond more quickly.

  • Hello. I'm from the Verse Audit group, and having gone through many of the Lord of the Rings profiles, the verse has been classified as Yellow, meaning it misses several criteria and needs some work. As you have listed yourself as a knowledgeable member for the verse, I'm contacting you to ask if you would be willing to go through the pages and do the following:

    • Fix the powers and abilities section so powers are listed in the format of "Specific Power (Brief explanation/Justification)" if they are not already.
    • Rearrange the "Attack Potency", "Speed", "Lifting Strength", etc etc etc if it is out of the order listed on the Standard Format for Character Profiles (e.g. Range listed between AP and Speed on Fëanor's page)
    • If a Tier is listed as Unknown, check if the rating is accurate - e.g. they have no feats and there is no one they scale to.

    I have also contacted the other people listed on the Knowledgeable Members list, being:

    If you are willng to assist, it would be preferable if you contacted them to collaborate with them.

    Thanks

    • My apologies for the late reply - my work schedule has not been kind to me lately.

      While I agree that these revisions are sorely needed, I am afraid that I must decline to actively partake in this project as of now due to time constraints. Between writing and teaching (and studying), what time I do have to spend on this wiki is already reserved for a massive revision project on Norse Mythology (on which I am far behind schedule).

      But of course, should I come across an article and notice something that I could immediately improve, I will gladly make that adjustment, as should be expected of any member of this community. I wish the rest of you good luck in this endeavor, and I will offer my practical support if conditions change and time allows it.

      I honestly don't see how I could fail to notice that... it will be fixed at once.
