Added DiffLines:

*SignatureMove - Again, several. Players can actually develop their own, using the spell system...


Added DiffLines:

*WeaponOfChoice - The Admins have unique weapons, players can train in a single weapon's skill tree, and so on.

*TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything - (Hopefully) Invoked. Since I'm not planning to give the game any definite plotline, and leave it to the players... and the Admins... to create one, there's no script to be broken. As far as drops goes, my philosophy that "Everything ''Can'' Be Killed" should keep improbably won boss battles from causing problems. Yeah, no one expects TheEveryman to [[Main/DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu kill Cthulhu]], but a [[LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards sufficiently advanced wizard]]... Likewise, the free-form terrain will probably ensure that players will [[SequenceBreaking find weird ways]] to beat (or destroy) dungeons, but The Admins of Creation will (hopefully) be GenreSavvy enough to build the spells well. [[XanatosGambit Of course]], [[IdiotBall if they aren't]], [[ShrugOfGod it's all]] JustAsPlanned, because OnlySmartPeopleMayPass.

*MagicalUnderpinningsOfReality - Another philosophy contributing to TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything. Gravity is actually a spell. That could ([[NighInvulnerable theoretically]]) be [[NiceJobBreakingItHero broken]]. So are volcanoes. So are the stars. So is the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin new-player-protection-spell]].

Added DiffLines:

*ApocalypseHow: Assuming nobody finds any awful glitches, in the most absurdly extreme cases, Scope extends up to Multiversal, and Severity goes up to Class 5 - planets are now charred husks. Realistically, most will be Regional Class 0s. For a few examples:
**[[GreyGoo Create an uninhibited fully-self-replicating spell]].
**[[ColonyDrop Shoot down the moon]].
**[[SealedEvilInACan Unleash Cthulhu, trigger the Kraken-plague, etc]].

*TrueNeutral - The Admin of Admins is this, though he's closer to good than evil.Magic is likely to end up this way, though with him, who knows.

*SuspiciouslySpecificDenial - Cthulhu does not [[SealedEvilInACan lurk in the test dimension]], seeking a way to eat the world. [[BlatantLies Nope]]. And the Admin of Coding was not driven out of his own test dimension by aforementioned EldritchAbomination, as EldritchAbominations do [[BlatantLies not exist in ''Emergent: The Middle Ages'']].

*AlwaysChaoticEvil - Amusingly subverted - the "Chaotic" races are ''usually'' chaotic, and ''usually'' evil, but there aren't any in-game restrictions stopping a Dragon (for instance) from agreeing to guard a town, and proceeding to keep it safe from all sorts of invasions for years.

*ChaoticNeutral - The Admin of Chaos, obviously. The Admin of Volcanoes will probably be this, too.

to:

*ChaoticGood - Robinton, Admin of Coding, surprisingly enough. [[invoked]]
*ChaoticNeutral - The Admin of Chaos, Chaos (who has too many names to list), obviously. The Admin of Volcanoes will probably be this, too.[[invoked]]



**SomeCallMeTim, Admin of Volcanoes. ([[WordOfGod Which was chosen, randomly,]] by an eight year old non-[=TVTroper=]. Maybe the universe really does run on irony...)



*LawfulEvil - The Admin of Evil is probably this, though he might range into NeutralEvil.
*LawfulGood - Nexari (Admin of Order) is either this, or LawfulNeutral.

Added DiffLines:

*GravityScrew - Consequently, dungeons are likely to have altered gravity rooms. Beware the spikes on the ceiling not even bothering to crush you.
**Players can use this for their own convenience. Who doesn't like killing your enemies by making them fall into the sky... and then back to the ground?
***Except the part where the enemies take that time to cast one last spell or fire one last arrow at you. But, otherwise, great idea!
