I predict this will be a self-indulgent shippy meditation on power and responsibility but it's honestly hard to predict these threads

I guess in theory if my clones are capable of using all of my magic then I could send a bunch of them to fight Asmodeus now, and if he attacks a lot of them then maybe it'll count as having attacked the others, and then they'll be able to make him crumble into dust.

Although this does seem like the sort of decision that might result in bizarre consequences of some kind.

I wouldn't try it on Asmodeus but you could try it on genuinely dangerous things that don't have the ability to come track down the rest of you.

Permalink

I guess Asmodeus can plane shift, yeah. What else would I fight, if I'm gonna keep Golarion paused?

Permalink

The Valar? Some minor shitty god from my Karen's world? Sauron's apparently still loose in Sanity, you could try to kill him.

Permalink

Fighting the Valar seems like a weird choice because they're... not evil? I guess I could not try to fight back, but I'm not sure this would result in my spellbook having any idea what I was trying to tell it. I dunno who Sauron is and I don't have a way of finding minor gods in general.

Permalink

We could try to look some up for you but I don't know how well it'll work.

Permalink

I dunno. Maybe I should just let the Valar kill me a bunch of times.

Permalink

Is there a lot of reason to rush, here?

Permalink

I guess not. I should probably try a bunch of other things first.

Permalink

I probably would, though it's up to you.

Permalink

 

Kinda feel like fewer things should be up to me. But I guess it is.

I can try turning a bunch of zombies to dust and see if that does anything. 

Permalink

Or, I dunno, reading stories about killing gods, or killing small effigies of Asmodeus, or something.

Permalink

Oooh, effigies are an option. I guess I could try those, too. 

Thanks.

Of course.

She heads over to her zombie-fighting arena, makes a bunch of wooden dummies in the shape of Asmodeus, and repeatedly fireballs them.

This is honestly really boring and kind of depressing, but at least if anyone asks her what she's been working on she'll have an answer. She should probably also be talking to someone about something but she feels kind of too annoyed with herself to work on anything else.

Every few hours she checks her spellbook.

Going through the motions:

 

When you are doing something repetitive that you don't care about, you can specify for how long you will do it and not have conscious awareness of doing it until that time arrives or you are interrupted.

To learn this spell, say Tyevetee.

She flops on the ground. Her zombie fighting arena has kind of a hard floor so this isn't really the best idea ever.

 

Got a spell, she tells Connor.

Permalink

A good one?

It says "When you are doing something repetitive that you don't care about, you can specify for how long you will do it and not have conscious awareness of doing it until that time arrives or you are interrupted."

So, uh, not what I was going for, exactly.

Permalink

Man, that's lame. You've been trying so hard to get it to give you stuff and all it - noticed - was that you were doing stuff you didn't care about?

Permalink

I guess so.

Permalink

Does that mean you gotta do stuff you actually want to do?

Permalink

Maybe? Or maybe I could just reject this one and it'll give me something useful? I dunno.

Permalink

Kinda think you should try the doing stuff you wanna do thing.

Permalink

That sounds... harder.
