How to destroy the world?
« on: October 12, 2010, 08:44:55 PM »
Title says it all.  Here are the rules.

Destroying the world requires you to deal 1800 damage in an AoE form.

Wishing for the world to be destroyed is clearly cheating.

Everything else is pretty much on the table.

Go go!

In my humble opinion, CO is haberdashery. Some say we're mad, but we can all agree we're hatters. Yes, we have potential to make very sophisticated hats, very fancy hats, be they dark or light. But the truth is that the color of the hat does not come from the group of us - our community doesn't directly produce hats. We simply give average head circumferences, list current fashion trends, and point out some shiny, obscure baubles to add to the latest hat line.

Sunic may be more abrasive than sandpaper coated in chainsaws (not that its a bad thing, he really does know what he's talking about), but just posting in this thread without warning and telling him he's an asshole which, if you knew his past experiences on WotC and Paizo is flat-out uncalled for. Never mind the insults (which are clearly 4Chan-level childish). You say people like Sunic are the bane of the internet? Try looking at your own post and telling me you are better than him.

Serene guardian 7 uses resonance on the world, then confuses it (no save) for as long as it takes until the planet attacks itself.  Given the massive strength bonuses from size categories, and minimal AC, the attack is sure to hit for massive damage.

Only 1800?  Pretty sure it would take a lot more than that...

edit: also, it's only 300 maximized D6s.  Pretty sure I have seen more than that.

Pretty sure that only hits creatures. You'd need to animate the earth.

Do tell!

Also the 1800 number comes from another d20 game (a silly one of course) and so that's the challenge.  The number is in fact spelled out in that games rulebook.

A planet is hanging in space, where it technically weighs less than 1 lb (just put it on a small scale, and see what the scale reads), so you can paint an explosive rune on it, and set it off.

Voila.

Also, take a massive tarp into space, paint a ginormous explosive rune on it (with Explosive Spell applied), then drape it over the moon. The first person to read the rune will set it off, which will blast the entire planet away (since it affects all creatures and objects capable of seeing it once it explodes, so Explosive Spell will blow everyone and everything that doesn't make its save thousands of miles away...and unattended nonmagical objects [such as a planet] can't make saving throws).

Also, if destroying every creature on the planet counts, there's always the wightocalypse.

Iron heart surge it away, since it's affecting you with its gravity.

Also, d2 crusader it to smithereens.

Ah, Big Eyes, Small Mouth rules.  Start with AftS.  Extraordinary Spell Aim to omit yourself.  Widen effect from War Wizard of Cormyr, plus Widen Spell.  We're at 40 miles/CL now.  Use any of my usual obscene CL builds, netting an AoE of roughly a 6,400 mile radius (assuming 140 or so CL).  Explosive to blow it all apart, and damage enhancers if the central section needs more oomph.  Alternately, twin the sucker too, precluding the need for specific placement of boomage.

Most uberchargers can do ~2000 damage without breaking a sweat.

Any hood build can just jump straight up and break the planet in two if they attack the ground.

Alternatively, I'm pretty sure you could telekinesis your way to victory. 

Or just kill a few minions wearing helms of brilliance using magic fire.  Each full helm deals 300d6 +40d4 fire damage to the area around it if it detonates.

Use polymorph any object on it and turn it into a rabbit.

...which then suffocates in the dark emptiness of space.

I tried it, it came out weighing about 5 pounds or something. It's probably a coincidence that this was the weight of the scale.

please realize i'm kidding around
So you end up stuck in an endless loop, unable to act, forever.

In retrospect, much like Keanu Reeves.

Of course people are resistant to the scientific method. People are not physical phenomena, they have free will.

Did ANYONE take the philosophy of science course in college?  :debate
