So, I was thinking of drawing up some Cthulhu Saves the World profiles here, soon, and there's a feat towards the end that points towards "every universe/reality/etc." level CStW!Cthulhu... which normally would be 2-B, right? Two questions:
> One, is there anything in the Cthulhu Mythos that indicates that each individual 4-D multiverse contains an infinite number of seperate universes, rather than simply an extraordinarily high finite number as we tend to assume?
> Two, if so, could we even use it? If one were to use that, after all, it might immediately imply that other aspects of Lovecraft's mythos (which is, after all, Universal Intellectual Property) would also carry over... I remember the last time people tried this, it ended up being a problem, since Cthulhu had bested a being that is Tier 0 in the Lovecraftian Mythos.
Or is it possible to segregate base-line assumptions about the way in which the cosmology works from the specific incarnations/interpretations of the characters that inhabit it? Just figured I'd try to get other people's thoughts, and you're knowledgeable on the verse in question...
Cthulhu Saves the World is hard to properly tier, because the whole thing is basically one giant meta joke. I even made a joke profile for it, once.
About infiite universes: Off the top of my head, there's stuff like Randolph Carter falling through an endless void filled with universes being birthed and dying, and also the fact that by the very nature of the verse, everything exists at once, which would include the infinite universes.
I don't know if one could use that, though. The final battle takes place "Beyond Angled Space", which would be between 5-D and dimensionless depending on what you decide to take from the mythos.
Yeah, certainly, but I don't think it'd be impossible. It's not like the game was made with the purpose of making a character able to defeat Tier 1-As or Tier 0s, or whatever. I doubt Zeboyd hardly even knows about Vs Debating.
Also, doesn't, like, The Narrator exist beyond everything? At least, as far as his Plot Manipulation goes. I remember at the end of the Cthulhu's Angel's alternate story route, you defeat the Narrator in physical combat as October before he reveals that the events before the start of the main game are about to unfold, and his still-intact sprite is present on the end-game screen, kinda implying he wasn't truly "defeated" so much as overcome. Otherwise, his Plot Manip. seems to be infinitely above everything else in the game (mind, he literally orchestrated the whole plot within the context of the in-game world.)
I guess what I'm asking, would that make the Narrator's Plot Manipulation another dimension higher, effectively, for what it can do AP-wise? Or would it just stay at Cthulhu/Azathoth's level?
