    It's also possible that he just couldn't have done it for a long period of time.

    Gods, demigods, other sorcerers and all sorts of things existed that could have tried to stop him if he tried it.

    She'd probably look at you in a very slow manner or just snort.

    Smart, you gotta make sure that he doesn't do anything more crazy.

    You sometimes can't avoid things, Paul.

    They may want their old territory back but seeing as the rest of South America was not their territory, they don't care about it.

    First of all, this is Earth 16. Second, I kinda want to see Boss Smiley take Accalacan down a peg to remind them that they can't just ignore the rest of the world just because they have a new goddess to worship.

    See my post above; the guy may not have even been capable of doing it since there were things that could oppose him.

    Hey, if he's enlightened then he may also see the good in humanity.

    Most would be.

    Not surprising given her experiences at the hands of demons.

    This and a whole bunch of other reasons.

    Yep.

    This may have been the rich part of town.

    A lot but nothing they'd necessarily want.

    Probably.

    Hey guys, remember this?
    1: What are the odds "making all the plantlife in the entire world" is the thing OL was sent by Gaia to talk to her about?
    2: Can I get a retroactive like here?

    I would see a Lord of Chaos Paul as acting less like Mxyplik and more like an Evil Enlightened Self Interest Genie. Work with people to grant their wishes, with the limitation a wish will only be granted if the wish also advances one of Paul's goals, or is fulfilled in a way that advances one of his goals.

    Wish to be King of the world, and you are! But that world, isn't Earth. You get some barren planet terraformed and a colony built for you, giving you power but also accomplishing Paul's goal of humanity having backups in the event of something happening to Earth.

    Agreed.

    They would probably have to be a Blue Lantern though so he could shut down LePaul long enough for him to actually listen.

    Huh.

    Thought: after the Sheeda flattened a lot of existing governments, how many nations are in civil war right now?
    Depending on how much civil war is going on and how in their faces it's getting to some League members, they might be seriously chafing under the provisions that prevent them from intervening, or may begin to do so soon.

    This is funny as Paragon basically said he doesn't expect too much from the League either outside of their usual M.O., I believe in his last interaction with Alpha Centurion.

    I wonder if other indigenous political movements around the world are interested in Accalacan as an alternate model to most modern nation-states, and in a post-Sheeda world, it may actually be viable to try establishing them to a degree. I wonder how the aftermath affected US tribal sovereignty and land rights, and things like that (I don't know much of Manitou Raven and Manitou Dawn, but I assume they're out there somewhere? though if they appear in 'modern' DC stories via time-travel, I guess they won't have much chance to show up).
    I don't think Euanthe or Isley would demand worship anyway, so for tribes who still worship their existing gods and preserve/practice their religious traditions, I think the theological disturbances could be kept to a minimum.

    I think that I should ask if we're eventually going to see the heroes try to take out OL

    Heroes: "Can you stop solving the flaws in our society so we can keep punching people in the face?"

    "No"

    I don't think the Sheeda invasion affected the situation for the various Native American groups in the US all that much since the US is still functioning.

    Though it's highly likely that a lot were killed.

    And while Euantge may not care about what people people worship, the various tribes may still abandon their previous gods for one that actually helped them.

    How is the civil war still going after the Sheeda invasion? From what we've heard about the country so far there is no way Brazil is winning any war. Also, is Zatara officially back with the league?

    There hasn't been a peace agreement between the rump of the Brazilian government and the Accala who occupy most of the country.
    Officially, he never left.

    I was honestly considering a scenario where Paul takes up Regular person as a companion Dr Who style to ground himself a little or at least remind himself of humanity. It came to me in the when he was in Japan and just went ‘meh’ at something that is actually awe inspiring. It kind of works; he’s a ‘eldritch monstrosity’ he probably forgot what most humans are like.
    He’s likely League affiliates much like Paul is.

    Mr Zoat, do you still do fan side-stories like in the old days or is that not possible any more.

    I'm not sure what you mean. This is a fan story. If you mean, are other people allowed to write subfics in this setting then no, that is completely forbidden and will result in me personally tracking the author down and eating their walrus.

    So, does that mean China was been off the security council for decades in WTR, because the folks in Tiawan haven't signed a peace agreement yet?

    Well, well, well, Paul. If it isn't the consequences of your own actions.

    That means the League officially cannot be seen to pick a side between the People's Republic and the Republic Of.

    China was off the Security Council for years in real life because of that. But no, that's not still the case, because inclusion on the Security Council is based on realpolitik rather than any sort of set rules.

    As always, I really do adore the worldbuilding and politics here. it's better than canon

    Presumably making all plant life anti-demon could have other side effects, but I imagine it's more 'drain magic' or 'change the plant life to the point it could hurt non-demons' more than anything.

    aHH.. But he only joined the league recently. You cannot retroactively hold his behavior prior to joining the League against him!.... Or you can because he now has access to time travel. But that would affect casualtiy and he'll end up being blameless... Or you'll end up unable to cast blame anyhow.

    Call John Constantine this irresponsible messing with magic is his shtick.... Oh wait. That's exactly what you're doing!

    Is he an active member of the Justice League officially? I remember the cover story was he was on leave and that's why no one saw him for a year.

    You say that but she's one of the few assets that Brazil has access to that could actually slow them down and kill a few.

    Danner formula doesn't make you immune to death by heatstroke, after all, just a little more resistant I imagine.

    Smoke inhalation and suffocation then, burn all the air around them or set fire to the forest.

    The only things that would body her totally would be forest spirits or Eutharine herself.

    I am saying she'd 'slow them down' not that she'd 'win outright'

    Why would Fire go direct to lethal force? Or are you saying that would be Brazil's logic?
