    Paradox Ability

    Post by Neodraconis on Fri 12 Aug 2011 - 10:53

    The Paradox ability is a little complicated to me. What does it do? I didn´t understand it when reading it in the wikia.

    It basically lets mutually impossible events happen. Like, it'd let a person survive even after their past self has died, or it'd let a person still use their abilities if their past self had lost them. I made it up to let Alec survive his baby self's death, for a SL.

    I basically just made it up because I didn't want to have to rethink the timing of that SL Laughing

    Can anyone think of another ability, apart from Dimensional Hopping, which'd let someone effectively survive what should delete their existence?

    What was that ability to live outside of time. Chronolock? or something similar.

    Or maybe a similar dimension ability. (not too sure what though)

    Anachronism? I considered it, but I thought it was more to do with existing in the wrong time, like years before you were born or something. Or that's how AE explains it, anyway. Not that we (or I) haven't altered ability definitions for my own use, anyway.

    Bit powerful Laughing I think I remember you linking to it before, actually.

    And tbh, I'm still working out the kinks of the associated future SL, so I think I'll leave it for now.

    Actually, maybe just temporal immunity would work, since it's technically surviving an alteration of time which'd delete your existence.

    Nod temporal immunity would work.
    I couldn't think of anything except chronolock. Laughing

    Like a milder version of it Laughing I considered immunity to deletion too, but decided that'd be overkill.

    You know me, preserve the abilities which can be used to kill the powerful ones, for angst potential Wink
