Whetu knows about Akira's Unique Power. She didn't mention it because she strongly doubts Akira would use Abolish during a space battle. The harsh environment of space is more than sufficient to kill Akira.I’m not sure if they’re holding back what Akira’s special power is,because I’m not sure if they know.That information matters,though.
@EmpressTantomile Any plans on using that special power?How?
Empress Tantomile and Sebakhira said:I still haven't figured out how I could use it in a fight. Make my ship's guns more accurate? Make an enemy ship prone to breakdowns? What about boarding actions? Do I make myself lucky or the enemy unlucky?
You're overthinking this, Tantomile. Focus on what you want to happen.
Tantomile's power is passive. It's always "turned on" and being used, even when she's not thinking about it, so no. It can't be blocked.Also,can Paradox block Tantomile’s special power?
The countdown to the Battle of Aoraki was still running during Interlude #4, even though the clock itself didn't appear there. (Interludes are not part of the Main Story) The Battle of Aoraki is still going to happen in Chapter 5.4.Also,why did the Doomsday Clock jump from five minutes to midnight to three minutes to midnight?
If you're looking for an in-universe reason, try this: Kendra and Tantomile alerted the Galactic Council Security Council to the situation, and Secretary General Vestergaard said the GCSC would "continue to monitor and discuss the situation." There is now a very real chance of foreign intervention in the coming battle.
@QueenKendra, @EmpressTantomile/Sebakhira, @Eteka Also,if Hakara and Whetu told them about the Cycles,what’s their reaction?They were pissed about Paradox taking their free will,but in this view, they never had free will.
Queen Kendra said:I'm taking some time to wrap my head around the concept. I didn't ask how many times my dad abandoned mom and I, or how many times I died at Aiowa. I don't want to. My mind might go to... dark places... if I think about stuff like that too much. I'll admit to being curious about some things though. I'm planning to ask Whetu a few questions at the party next week, mostly stuff about what my friends and I did in other Cycles. Think about it: if I was dead in the last Cycle, that means somebody else got elected Queen. Who was it? What were they like? Also, Nya wants to know what happened to herself, and I promised her I'd ask Whetu for her. (I think Nya likes the thought that she was Gifted in a past Cycle)
Empress Tantomile and Sebakhira said:This is exceptionally dangerous. The Paradox wields even greater power over time than Kaiako and I first thought.
This means there are multiple timelines and multiple universes where me and my friends have been victimized by Akira. Who knows how many more there'll be after this one? No more. This has got to stop! One way or another, Akira Robinson is going to die at Aoraki!
Eteka Mihaka said:The possibilities opened up by alternate timelines, Cycles going before and after our own time... I think it's kinda fascinating. If it's at all possible, I'm going to try and convince Tantomile to capture Akira's ship intact. Hakara did say that there's going to be some kind of Extragalactic Invasion in the future. A Progenitor Hyperspace Core that allowed Time Travel as well could be a very useful tool in that fight... or a potent weapon.
Agreed.I have to say I am with Tantomile - I don't quite have the patience for all this chitchat.
Careful what you wish for.I imagine she just wants to lay waste to something or someone.
