Seriously, thank you for the clarifications on abilities with Nicol Bolas.
I always hate having to explain to other people about how OP Nicol Bolas is, but now I can just link the page on here guilt free lol.
I did not know he was resistant to Mind Manipulatin, is that in the second newest set, Amonkhet??
Yeah, it happens in his fight with the Gatewatch. Quotes are from Hour of Devastation, which is the final chapter of the block with the same name.
"They began. Gideon charged, his golden force shield shimmering, while Chandra launched gouts of flame. Seedlings burst from the ground, courtesy of Nissa, becoming roots and vines that twisted and knotted around the dragon's legs. Liliana began raising the dead; there was no shortage given the carnage of the day.
Jace tried to attack Nicol Bolas's mind.
The walls around the dragon's mind were smooth and featureless, like dark obsidian. There seemed to be no entry, nothing to even latch onto. Jace had never encountered a mind so impenetrable, except for . . . the merest moment of a memory surfaced of a mind as smooth and dazzling as a wall of crystal. But even as the thought entered his mind, it erased itself, and he could not remember where he had seen such a thing—or even what kind of thing it was.
What . . . Jace shook off the sudden fugue that had overtaken him. It hadn't seemed to come from Bolas, but rather from inside himself. What was I thinking about? But he could not recall. Bolas's mind still loomed in front of him, closed and locked, as he futilely sought purchase."
"Bolas ignored Chandra's fire, trampled Liliana's dead, and broke Nissa's vines. He did not move to attack them, merely continuing to fling a helpless Gideon against the wall. He stared at Jace, knowing what the telepath was trying, and failing, to do.
The voice blasted into Jace's mind with all the subtlety of an avalanche, shredding several of his defenses effortlessly. You have been alive for all of an eye-blink, and because of a thimble of natural talent you presume to touch my mind? And some have called me arrogant. Bolas's laughter was acid, scarring Jace's mind.
He frantically strove to erect stronger psychic shields, shocked at how easily Bolas had penetrated his outer walls. But perhaps, in his arrogance, the dragon had made a mistake. Bolas had left a trail, a metaphysical string connecting his mind to Jace's. Perhaps this was the handhold Jace needed.
He followed the trail, desperate to break through, desperate to save his friends.
It was working! He found a small crevice in the otherwise featureless obsidian shields. He concentrated on opening it wider, he just needed to . . .
If you wanted in, child, you merely needed to ask. Each word from Bolas was like boulders crashing down a mountain.
The obsidian shield disappeared, and Jace fell unexpectedly into Nicol Bolas's mind. There the dragon was waiting, smiling.
Nicol Bolas clutched Jace's mind as he tried to fight him off. He crumpled over with pain, livid with himself at how easily he had fallen for Bolas's ruse. I have to do better. He could still escape this trap, he just needed more time. Seconds, he only needed seconds . . .Seconds you do not have, Bolas whispered inside his mind. The Multiverse only suffers fools briefly. A useful lesson, if you survive. The dragon held Jace's mind roughly, and squeezed.Synapses crumbled. Pain blossomed. Insanity beckoned. A towering wave of darkness rose in the distance. Jace knew the crash of that wave meant dissolution. Mind-death. Without conscious thought, he began planeswalking away blindly, not knowing or caring where. He had to avoid that darkness.He felt himself being pulled across the Blind Eternities as the wave of darkness struck, and then he knew nothing at all."
Do you think we should bring down their durability a little to At Most 6C or alternatively At least 7A? They can't survive a plasma cannon shot most of the time which is what the High 6C rating is for and they still get damaged by plasma pistols which are 7B-7A.
Also what do you think about the Tau Rail Rifles being able to penetrate Terminator armor with 1 shot. Would this be a vulnerability towards piercing weapons b/c other vehicles that normlly aren't as tough as Terminator armor can survive them?
Yeah, the "dream" itself is more of just a way of putting the idea into terms we can better understand and relate. A lot of this is done with other things in Lovecraft's work as well, such as using sensations to describe the experiences in Hypnos, despite there being no actual physical feeling to speak of.
Ant told me that you are the person i should talk to when it comes to Dragon ball games, so im here and im hoping im not that much of a bother.
Well, you see, i have some questions regarding Towa and Mira.
So, i was looking at the Towa and Mira profiles and i notice that it had, towa's demon god form and mira's super form.
My questions are:Why are they there?and if they are there for no reason at all
Can we add a DBH key and make those images useful
The Mira from heroes doesn't have a supervillain form, but he has the super form and both Xenovers and heroes mira have the final form, since a heroes key for Demigra was accepted; can they also get a heroes key?
If the keys are accepted, then they would basically become Tier 2-B and have new abilities.
Another thing i want to ask is if character pages could be made for DBH's original characters?
Mainly because as it stands right now, the DB game pages are a bit out of sorts. Things aren't as organized as they should be, especially since there are notable differences with certain things in Xenoverse and Heroes, as I'm sure you know.
I am not opposed to having pages for DBH's original characters, as long as they are well formatted and properly scaled.
Like even if GE's Primarchs aren't 4-B, which they are but just assuming, wouldn't they still be a bunch of many of the Imperiums strongest anyways? Doesn't seem hard to believe from the looks of it really...

I also like how Sanguinius saying he doesn't believe himself to have Tier 4 power somehow holds more weight than him brutalizing several beings with multiple Tier 4 feats within the same book series.
I also like how he instantly dismisses stuff from Talon of Horus.
