This brings up an interesting question. How would a paper and pencil role play system handle temporal paradoxes and other such nonsense?
It involves throwing large, blunt objects (usually books) at peoples' heads.

Pun-Pun
a ... can't violate causality unless
b ... he can make up abilities
c ... (in which case he is truly unstoppable).

(a) I can't comment / don't know deep arguments about causality, except for the Merovingian and his hot babe(s).
(b) Surrukh ability absolutely (or might) allow pun-pun to make up abilities. The argument is still within the major Pun-pun thread, and referred to on the OP.
(c) hmm ... LoP, Tsuyo, TG and psly4mne didn't think pp was unstoppable, and Khan conceded to LoP's Omni, though not later with the level 1 build.

So I don't know what's still in the mix.

While it has somewhat lost credibility in other media, I think I'd go with "the responsible parties are eaten by time monkeys".
My work
The tier system in a nutshell:
[spoiler]Tier 6: A cartographer.
Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.
Tier 1: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything and the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.[/spoiler]

Gendou Ikari is basically Gregory House in Kaminashades. This is FACT.

Stoneshape + Extraordinary Spell Aim?

IIRC, it specifically says that it excludes a _creature_ from the area of the spell, not the square, so it should perfectly envelop the creature... including potential any space of their body not taken up by the creature (Lungs? Mouth? Nostrils? Intestines? Colon?) If nothing else, it should start suffocation checks.

Yeah, sorry. Noticed it after posting, already reposted over there (after an excellent parry 4 I might add).
