Profile

Arthur Lowell was one of many thousands of teenage gamers thrown into the game of Sburb on April 13th, AU 20, escaping the apocalypse of Earth-413 into the game, and a year and a half later concluded it by creating an entirely new universe, of which he is now God of Space. Arthur now has power over various celestial processes, gravity, and even the fabric of space itself, as well as the various resources gleaned from Sburb, such as unique crafting mechanisms. At his exterior, though, he's still the same casual game geek he went into the game as, with a touch of trickster god and much more hot-blooded than one would expect of a deity. Now that he's finished his own quest, he finds himself deeply indebted to both the Union and the Confederacy, and traverses the Multiverse, to make up the debt, and to find new adventures.

Endgame content: Arthur's combat efficiency is peaked; there is simply nowhere higher to go. This would be good, if it weren't for the fact that it peaked at such a low level. Direct combat is a problem for Arthur, and he doesn't like it. While his arsenal and abilities may be expansive in a horizontal sense, it is not in a vertical one; Arthur is simply unlikely to increase his direct combat abilities.

Old Debts: Arthur is deeply in debt in a personal sense to the Union and Confederacy, who spent a large amount of time just keeping him alive. Thus, there are many members of the Union and Confederacy that can call in this old debt to force Arthur to avert his intended courses of action rather easily, if needed.

Conditional Immortality: Resurrection is a problem when it only works sometimes. Arthur can be killed under two conditions: If his death is Just, which is to say, if he did something or became something morally wrong and was killed as a result, or if his death is Heroic, which is to say, if he sacrificed his life in an act of heroism, or tried to use his immortality to cheat some situation's sacrifice requirements. The resurrection may also be delayed or even prevented by massive amounts of spiritual or magical damage, though the sheer amount required for death is spectacularly high.

Squishy Caster: Despite being endgame, Arthur Lowell is, compared to other gods, surprisingly squishy. Besides a resistance to massive-object impacts, Arthur has almost no resistances to speak of, rendering him absurdly incapable of "tanking" anything that is not an extremely high-mass object such as a meteor or a spatial warp like a projectile back hole. Unlike many gods, Arthur's resilience is no greater than his average-hero level he was at before.

Dream Magic: Due to Arthur's history as a Derse dreamer and the fact that his dreams occur in a way that is deeply connected to a real world space, Arthur is highly vulnerable to dream-related magic and has associated vulnerabilities to other telepathic influence.

Limited Alchemy: Arthur has reached the peak of his alchemy resources; these resources are not renewable at this scale anymore, and must be recycled. Arthur cannot alchemize anything that might be both expendable and expensive, at least not in large numbers. This can be averted to a very small degree by processing valuable or rare objects for grist.

Poor Impressions: Arthur gives the first impression of a bratty, loud gamer, rather than a god who wields phenomenal cosmic powers. As a result, socializing is often rather difficult. He also tends to lie by omission about his godhood, claiming almost obsessively that it's not important, which can create a lot of awkwardness and social dysfunction if that goes south, and denies him a lot of opportunities that would otherwise come up if Arthur were straightforward about things.

Wrathborn's LOSAF Adventure February 2nd, 2015 Dear Warden,

I write to you from outside this Book of Heaven to beg for your mercy. We have never met, but fate has caused us to meet with one another in this way because of our natures and the natures of those within.

I speak of my friends, but primarily of Arthur Lowell, for my friends have come to you in order to seek him out. I admit, I do not know you. I do not know of your nature. Do you seek to give people their heaven out of love or hate? A wish for hope, or perhaps a perverse twist, I cannot tell, for I cannot view your pages.

I wish to believe the better of you, that you wish to truly provide happiness. But as people touch the lives of others, we create connections that cannot be easily forsaken. You are undoubtedly experiencing that now, and have experienced this before. The multiverse needs Arthur. Not just Afterus, but many other lands, including the world you reside in, depend on his knowledge, courage, and bravado in order to preserve themselves and find some semblance of peace. This is why he had come to your world in the first place. I do not know if you are cognizant of this, or if you care, but for someone to create a heaven, they have to be capable of some level of empathy, can they not?

We have come to find a release for Arthur. This is a fact that cannot be denied. The terms and nature of this release are up to you. I am fully capable of doing such if needed, however, if you push me and my friends to the limits. But there is no need for a confrontation, nor doe we have to come to dire ends. Anything is possible in this multiverse. If you care to name your price, perhaps we can find a way to come to agreeable terms. There has to be something we can do to solve your own problems, should they exist.

You may wonder why I seek to establish contact. Why I am working so hard when others are already working. I admit to a more... personal interest. I find Arthur to be a fascinating person. He is fun and exciting, and we share many interests. He shows surprising intelligence and maturity under the bravado, he is intelligent and handsome in his own coolkid way. I know there's a lot more under the shell he projects.

But I can tell hs is also in a lot of pain. He needs assistance, something that I do not believe he can receive in this world of heaven that you create. We cannot live in a Heaven forever. We will never grow, and become the kind of person we need to be in order to contribute to the world around us and make it a better place. I want to help him. I want to find a way to heal those scars and give him a way to face the infinite worlds, if not without regret, at least without pain.

I pray that you consider my words and that you will find it in your heart to relent. I am prepared to give a great deal to win his release from your land. This... Heaven.

I await your answer.
