Well Alicia is pretty awesome but there are some things that need to change.

First her age needs a number and fifty years after Ordnell formed puts her above the allowed age limit. The age limit is 9000 years and Ordnell was founded 11,000 years ago the fact that it is the oldest city still alive is actually a rather serious plot point that we will be coming back too.

Secondly The whole reality warping thing can be allowed but it needs to be very heavily managed. Luckily I have a means of doing so for my antagonist characters but in all events and interactions with other player characters there needs to be something to prevent you from instantly winning every potential fight or situation. I recommend not actually being able to effect people with the manipulations but rather effect the environment...which leads me to the last issue...the whole realm being within her thing. Based on how the end realm works if there was a universe or dimension within her it to would’ve been unraveled,

However I may have a solution. If wonderland was an artificial dimension built with either magic or technology it would not have the same limitations, and assuming she has the object it is sealed within she could still call upon the powers of the characters within it. But having a universe inside of her, being a faction leader, annnnd being a reality warper would literally make it impossible for Shadus not to view her as a threat and there is certainly no way he would allow a threat to exist for nine thousand years without doing something about it, he did wipe out a civilization that was here just for possibly being able to make machines that warped reality.

So in short she needs some minor tweaks here or there to make her workable within the lore. Mainly the age and internal realm thing, plus a little more intel and limits on the reality bending stuff. Sorry if this seems like a lot but a reality warper can really make stories hard.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them.
Makes a lot of sense. I totally get that. Yep. I'll edit the age for certain. My bad. And I could have the fact that wonderland was originally a creation of the original Alice's imagination.

Any ideas on how the limitations should work? I know it's just my word, but I hate auto winning stuff, and I particularly enjoy ham stringing myself. The idea is that her powers are limited to how she believes things SHOULD work. For example, she thinks that swords should cut armor, but shouldn't be able to shatter other swords. So the weapons of people she fights with will never shatter, but she can cut their armor. She CANT force herself to believe that her sword should be able to cut another sword, because that's not how sword fights are portrayed to work. She can't simply alter reality at a whim.

I consider myself a pretty fair even handed story teller (not necessarily a skilled one, haha) and so I don't think I would abuse this power, and am actually looking forward to screwing myself over with it.

Naturally that's just my promise of how I'll play, so I totally understand if you want harder limitations. I'd just have to think of some. But yea, actually, I just reread what you said. I'd never directly reality warp another character. Maybe if they were far away I'd try to squish them with a giant thumb, but yea, I had no plans to be able to manipulate someone else. I can put that in my Bio explicitly if you'd like. *edited this last part in*

Ok. Edited. As for the realm thing. Is the 'container' being her stomach, and it being a world created by the Original Alice's imagination work? That would be interesting as it wouldn't be as large as a real universe, and that would make Alicia be part imaginary creature, being Alice's daughter and a native of wonderland.

Awesome I was hoping you would make this cordial and easy.

I would just say the limitations would be that it cannot make others abilities irrelevant. For example, someone with extreme durability or some kind of toughness factor, would be much harder to reality perspective finger crush (the far away finger smoosh trick.) the Sword itself is fine, however other magical effects would still apply to it. So for example a magical armor immune to cutting would not be able to be cut. However one like Leon’s that simply has resistance would be cuttable it would just require effort. (Also DND vorpal regen negation will not be able to overpower healing factors.) etcetera and such.

I actually like the idea of her quite a lot and will be happy to bring her into the mix. She actually adds a good bit of threat to Ordnell which was previously protected mainly by distance and lack of desire. Adding Alicia gets Shadus’s eyes on the town, and adds a military factor beyond the demigod army that could actually make the faction among the big three.

If it’s artificial we can have it be actually within Alicia’a Mind. This would add a whole other layer of defense against telepaths which all six of the sons are quite powerful versions of.

Sure, let's do that. She believes she ate it, but it's in her head. I like that. And the other stuff is AOK! I was imagining her trying to squish someone unsquishable with her thumb when I thought of it and how funny it would be and how confused both Alicia and the unsquishable person would be haha.

My sentiments exactly. Imagine all the sudden your pushing against nothing trying to smash you. That’s why I want her in she offers some good interesting perspective

Anywho a long day we had today at work. So i am gonna get to work on popping up a lore tab for some info on the NpC characters in this realm, Finish my factions list, and find some images for all of that. And I am debating on wether or not to make it known why people don’t try to sail across the endless sea.

Factions list is done for now. Starting on the Nazkhul forces and other powerful forces within the realm. Some are individuals, some are dangerous species who even Shadus has struggled to exterminate.

Alright. The Lore section has been updated. Vorin still needs his backstory and we are good to go. Estimated time for start is about 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

Ok finally, Vorin is Done.

Im about to start on the main thread. I have something in the works for the OcC but if it falls through I’ll make the pages after the opening is done. For now this will be the OcC
