Just read the initial post. Amazing, and well thought out. However, I do have a few ideas about that since we now have Calliborn and understand how this all came to be.
Personally, I don't believe Aranea is correct; there has to be a way to kill him with what we have. If I might, Diffractor:
Now, God Tiers are nothing to sneeze at....and yet, while I am concerned John may not be entirely useful in the fight against Lord English, he certainly has mobility and power that can certainly be an asset. At least I hope so. Rose can see what to do involving where their luck can be manipulated the most and to their best advantage, so she becomes an incredible support asset in terms of leading them towards the Gun, possibly the Crowbar and the other items for Trolls and the like. In fact, I'm starting to think she's going to be critical in that regard for Gamzee to Rise Up into God Tier Bard of Rage.Originally Posted by Diffractor
Dave has time, and as you already stated, there are kill-chances within using that kind of temporal control alone. My concern is that LE may simply be too power as a Master Class of Time that paradox no longer has an effect on him. He controls time, literally bends it over his knee like a wrestler. Even if the ~ath code could kill him through it, he may be aware of it due to Scratch informing him and proceed to glitch again. Still, having manipulation over time may allow Dave the chance to injure LE physically by zipping back and forth through selves and pressing the issue.
Jade.....is not something you screw with right now. Invincible to physical damage with the ability to manipulate the space around her through her own God-Tier abilities and that of being a First Guardian. She could literally defend herself withempty space. or the realms beneath her, around her and above her. She can teleport and change the size and shape of anything. LE would be making a huge mistake trying to take her on head-on, and she may well be the chance for Jake to shoot him with the White Gun...which I believe the bullet is something incredible-if it was for Slick, and looked liked the Green Sun-or that she will manage to cause him great pain.
Alpha Kids: All of the kids appear to have dead bodies ready for God Tier transformation at any time. Jane will be hard to kill normally. Roxy has Calliope's name in her head...but then again, she's usually so sloshed that I hope she can remember, or at least put it down somewhere. I'm frankly not concerned about her ability as a hacker or her intelligence, but her ability as a player. Jake at least can use guns in case the White Gun comes into play...and Dirk is just that capable. He is the most powerful player in the Alpha game and has so much capability he frankly-and sadly for me, since I like everyone-puts the other kids to shame. Possibly even John, and I really want him to shine.
The Trolls will be assets in bringing together everyone, I think. Possibly fighting the other threats that surround them like the Batterwitch and the Black King if it comes right down to it. Though I find that God Rage Gamzee may have more to do.
PM...yeah. PM's handling Jack. Let her beat the Archagent down effortlessly.
WV...I guess he can be helpful? Not sure how right now with what they are entering, but if they do manage to defeat Jack and get that ring, there will be two invincible, flying and space-manipulating enemies against him.
The cat we don't know.
That's what I have right now...we might wanna focus on what roles the others can play in this coming conflict against the Batterwitch before we focus on LE, since she'll be the immediate threat once we enter the Alpha's Medium.
