Things from my setting

Nowhere King

You almost succeeded. After all these millennia of searching you have found the lost treasure of the Demiurge. Now you will show that musty God-King of your Pantheon that you were right, that you always had. And he said that he had a horrible feeling about this and that you had to give up on the project. Old coward. You left in secret because he did not approve and now, when you will bring the treasure in the presence of the other gods, they will be forced to recognize your success and abilities. Advance to the sphere suspended in the air. It can fit in your palm easily. You see runes carved into the sphere in some forgotten language but you decide to ignore them, glory awaits you! You inject quintessence in the object and for a moment nothing happens. For a moment you fear that you have failed but to your relief you see it begins to open up. In that instant everything goes wrong. From within you feel malicious intent like you've never heard before. And the power, oh the power. You have no hands perceived such a powerful entity and for an instant you are reminded of the stories that Eriknul, the oldest among the gods, told you of when the World was young and entities known as Sidereals walked free. These thoughts stop, however, when a black slime coming out of the sphere covers the whole room. The pain is excruciating: as if you were dissolving yourself into nothingness. As you wriggle a song begins to echo around the room:
"Hush now, hide, all you little ones;
Rush now, into the middle of nowhere;
Singing and laughter will die;
Dreamless sleep, follows the Nowhere King;
When its kingdom comes, darkness is nigh;
Quiet, crawl to the in-between silent;
Secretive feeling of fearsome;
Hatred that reaches the skies;
You will bring joy to the Nowhere King;
When its sees the light leaving your eyes".
The slime begins to concentrate all in one place, dragging you with it. In front of your face, in the center of the pool you see an elk skull emerging. It rises, dragging the mud behind it to form a slimy and horrible body. It lowers its head and you know that despite empty eye sockets, it is watching you. Damn, everyone will have sensed that energy and will be rushing here. You just have to buy enough time and hold out until they arrive. You try to gather your divine powers, but you do not perceive anything. Your powers have abandoned you. Grinning, the skull lowers to whisper to you singing:
"Why have you come here;
If not to free me?
Then why disturb me?
'Cause now you're stuck here, you see;
I can't allow this;
I don't want existence;
In the universe;
I'm finished with you, so...;
Hush now;
And die, little one;
Rush now;
Into the middle of nowhere;
Where the singing and laughter;
Have died"
It opens its jaws, closing them on you. You expect to reform in your palace. But only the dark and empty Cold Below awaits you. With your last glimmer of thought you now understand the meaning of the runes on the sphere. It was used to seal, to contain, to trap. It was a prison. And you opened it. May the Supreme Being have mercy of your soul for the horror you have unleashed on the universe.

Alter Reality (Su)
Once per round as a free action Nowhere King can duplicate any spell of 30th-level or less. This ability can also duplicate any epic spells of a DC equal to 444 or less. Other use of this ability are GM’s discretion.

Breath Weapon (Su)
If a creature fail the Reflex save of the Nowhere King, in addition to taking full damage, the entropic slime sticks to him and begins to erase him from reality. For 48 rounds, each round, he takes 48d20 permanent damage. A wish spell whose caster make a caster level check of 378 can stop the effect early.

Cosmic Might (Ex)
The Nowhere King deals d20's for base damage dice of all melee, natural weapon, and unarmed attacks with virtual size categories, and its damage dice cannot go below this dice but this cannot increase to more dice than Nowhere King HD.

Divine Traits (First One) (Ex)
As a First One, the Nowhere King gains a +48 divine bonus to: armor class; attack rolls; checks (ability checks, caster level checks, skill checks, etc.); difficulty class (for any special abilities, spell-like abilities, spells); initiative; saving throws and spell resistance. Nowhere King’s natural attacks or any weapons it wields, are treated as epic for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. A First One does not age, requires no air to breathe, no food or drink to sustain itself, nor sleep.

Entropic Goo (Ex)
The Nowhere King grab and swallow whole abilities ignore freedom of movement and similar effects if generated by creatures of Old One or lesser grade.

Entropic Skin (Ex)
Any creature or object touching the Nowhere King’s seething membrane of pure entropy, including striking the monster with a melee natural weapon, unarmed strike, or melee touch attack, takes damage as Blood effect of the Uncanny Annihilating Mastery. Manufactured weapons that strike the Nowhere King take this damage as well, and the hardness of objects is halved against this. Anyone grappling with the Nowhere King suffers double the permanent damage (7.680). The Nowhere King destroy non-magical matter with a touch. Magical items must make a Fortitude save DC 569 each time they touch, or are touched by the Nowhere King, or be destroyed. This ability can even permanently destroy artifacts (even bonded artifacts) and soul objects if the object fail a Will save DC 569 as well (after the Fortitude save). The save DC is Charisma-based.

Entropy (subtype)
A creature with the entropy subtype can move without risk within the dimension of entropy and is immune to permanent damage. All natural attacks the creature make are touch attack. All natural attacks the creature make deal permanent damage instead of usual type (all natural weapons of the Nowhere King deal permanent damage with the exception of the bite and gore which do not go touch).

Herald of the End (Ex)
The Nowhere King was brought into existence by the creation of the universe, but was the living embodiment of the void, the perfect nothing that existed before it was born. The emptiness that it originally reflected had itself been erased at the start of time, and it longed to return to the ancient calm of nonexistence. The Nowhere King gains Uncanny Annihilating Mastery (x2 HD) as a bonus ability. Creature killed by the Nowhere King are destroyed in body (the remains are annihilated), mind and soul and cannot return to life or be resurrected by any means by a creature with lesser grade of a First One. This ignore rejuvenation and all abilities that automatically return to life or restore a creature (like the gaseous form of a vampire, the phylactery of a lich or the necessity to be killed in the Home plane for Immortals, but a contingency True Resurrection work if its casted by a First One and if overcome the Dead Magic zone, like for a First One caster with the Double Magic Portfolio). The Nowhere King can select Transcendental abilities as normal abilities. This ability cannot be abrogated.

Mythic (Ex)
The Nowhere King has Mythic Power (48/day, Surge +40d6) and counts as a 48th-rank Mythic creature. The Nowhere King can use any of its Alter Reality and spell-like abilities effect as the Mythic versions of those spells (if a Mythic version of that spell exists), expending Mythic Power as normal. The Nowhere King can also expend Mythic Power to use the augmented versions of these spells.

Reality Phase (Su)
The Nowhere King do not fly; rather it’s not subject to gravity in the same way other creatures are. This allow the Nowhere King to move in any direction through any medium, disintegrating solid matter in its path (see entropic skin).

See-Through Skin (Ex)
Because so much of the Nowhere King’s body is transparent, a creature swallowed whole by it has line of sight to creatures outside the Nowhere King, and creatures outside the Nowhere King can see any creatures that were swallowed whole.

Superior Compression (Ex)
The Nowhere King can move through an area as small as 1/32 its space without squeezing or 1/64 its space when squeezing.

Swallow Whole (Ex)
If the Nowhere King manage to grapple a creature, it can put the grappled creature in its mouth as a free action and attempt another grapple combat maneuver check (as though attempting to pin the opponent). If it succeed, it swallow the opponent as for the swallow whole special ability. If a creature that is swallowed whole by the Nowhere King manages to escape by cutting itself free, the Nowhere King’s gelatinous body simply seals over the hole created so that other swallowed creatures must cut their own way out.


As a Deity
Nowhere King

First One of Entropy, Consumer of the Universe
Alignment NE
Areas of Concern Destruction of the reality, Emptiness, Nothingness
Domains Darkness, Death, Destruction, Evil, Knowledge, Madness, Repose, Ruins
Subdomains Catastrophe (Destruction), Cannibalism (Evil), Daemon (Evil), Hatred (Destruction), Isolation (Void), Loss (Darkness), Memory (Knowledge), Murder (Death), Nightmare (Madness)
Favored Weapon Scythe
Symbol An elk skull on top of a black slime
Sacred Animal(s) Unelemental
Sacred Color(s) Vantablack

And this is my first unique creation, which is not taken from some mythology or converted from another work. The Nowhere King is a horror that wants only one thing: to erase the universe and return everything to the primal void. He was imprisoned by a coalition of First One at the dawn of time, even before the outbreak of the Cosmic War, and erased from history to prevent anyone from looking for him. The seal was hidden in the most remote corner of the Universe so that no one could ever, even if they wanted to, free him. But with the passage of time and the various planar upheavals the dungeon in which he is trapped is no longer in the most isolated corner of the world, the defenses have eroded and the guardians broken or dead. Now even a simple demi-deity could enter in search of treasures and without wanting, free it. Or just to free him, since with the weakening of the seal his mind has freed itself and has begun to send dreams of treasures to greedy people and of apocalypse to insane cults to attract them to free him. The gods have yet to notice this but cults of preachers announcing the end of the world are multiplying everywhere.

Nice, thats a rather powerful first one, nice like the entropic touch and skin skills since i think it properly reflects the nature of such a being. Is he an undead or a Umbral?

Glad you liked it. Basically it is an undead because although they have been mentioned over and over again on this forum no one has put on paper, even remotely, what an umbral is. Is an advanced Unelemental? An outsider? An undead? Totally another thing?

Has this thing been released? and if so whats the impact on the divine hierarchy? what about the other sidereals?
That was just an introduction to a possible future. For now it is still sealed in the sphere but if it was released it would be a catastrophe. No dialogue, no possible agreement. Only annihilation of everything. The gods would try to deal with him but its Transcendental abilities make all their efforts useless. Eventually they will resign themselves to freeing the Sidereal from their imprisonment but that will only increase the Chaos as the First One will be busy dealing with it while the Old One and Elder One will go wild doing what they want to regain their ancient place in the world.

Alter Reality (Su)
Once per round as a free action Nowhere King can duplicate any spell of 30th-level or less. This ability can also duplicate any epic spells of a DC equal to 424 or less. Other use of this ability are GM’s discretion.

Breath Weapon (Su)
If a creature fail the Reflex save of the Nowhere King, in addition to taking full damage, the entropic slime sticks to him and begins to erase him from reality. For 48 rounds, each round, he takes 48d20 permanent damage. A wish spell whose caster make a caster level check of 378 can stop the effect early.

Cosmic Might (Ex)
The Nowhere King deals d20's for base damage dice of all melee, natural weapon, and unarmed attacks with virtual size categories, and its damage dice cannot go below this dice but this cannot increase to more dice than Nowhere King HD.

Divine Traits (First One) (Ex)
As a First One, the Nowhere King gains a +48 divine bonus to: armor class; attack rolls; checks (ability checks, caster level checks, skill checks, etc.); difficulty class (for any special abilities, spell-like abilities, spells); initiative; saving throws and spell resistance. Nowhere King’s natural attacks or any weapons it wields, are treated as epic for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. A First One does not age, requires no air to breathe, no food or drink to sustain itself, nor sleep.

Entropic Goo (Ex)
The Nowhere King grab and swallow whole abilities ignore freedom of movement and similar effects if generated by creatures of Old One or lesser grade.

Entropic Skin (Ex)
Any creature or object touching the Nowhere King’s seething membrane of pure entropy, including striking the monster with a melee natural weapon, unarmed strike, or melee touch attack, takes damage as Blood effect of the Uncanny Annihilating Mastery. Manufactured weapons that strike the Nowhere King take this damage as well, and the hardness of objects is halved against this. Anyone grappling with the Nowhere King suffers double the permanent damage (7.680). The Nowhere King destroy non-magical matter with a touch. Magical items must make a Fortitude save DC 569 each time they touch, or are touched by the Nowhere King, or be destroyed. This ability can even permanently destroy artifacts (even bonded artifacts) and soul objects if the object fail a Will save DC 569 as well (after the Fortitude save). The save DC is Charisma-based.

Entropy (subtype)
A creature with the entropy subtype can move without risk within the dimension of entropy and is immune to permanent damage. All natural attacks the creature make are touch attack. All natural attacks the creature make deal permanent damage instead of usual type (all natural weapons of the Nowhere King deal permanent damage with the exception of the bite and gore which do not go touch).

Herald of the End (Ex)
The Nowhere King was brought into existence by the creation of the universe, but was the living embodiment of the void, the perfect nothing that existed before it was born. The emptiness that it originally reflected had itself been erased at the start of time, and it longed to return to the ancient calm of nonexistence. The Nowhere King gains Uncanny Annihilating Mastery (x2 HD) as a bonus ability. Creature killed by the Nowhere King are destroyed in body (the remains are annihilated), mind and soul and cannot return to life or be resurrected by any means by a creature with lesser grade of a First One. This ignore rejuvenation and all abilities that automatically return to life or restore a creature (like the gaseous form of a vampire, the phylactery of a lich or the necessity to be killed in the Home plane for Immortals). The Nowhere King can select Transcendental abilities as normal abilities. This ability cannot be abrogated.

Mythic (Ex)
The Nowhere King has Mythic Power (64/day, Surge +64d6) and counts as a 64th-rank Mythic creature. The Nowhere King can use any of its Alter Reality and spell-like abilities effect as the Mythic versions of those spells (if a Mythic version of that spell exists), expending Mythic Power as normal. The Nowhere King can also expend Mythic Power to use the augmented versions of these spells.

Reality Phase (Su)
The Nowhere King do not fly; rather it’s not subject to gravity in the same way other creatures are. This allow the Nowhere King to move in any direction through any medium, disintegrating solid matter in its path (see entropic skin).

See-Through Skin (Ex)
Because so much of the Nowhere King’s body is transparent, a creature swallowed whole by it has line of sight to creatures outside the Nowhere King, and creatures outside the Nowhere King can see any creatures that were swallowed whole.

Superior Compression (Ex)
The Nowhere King can move through an area as small as 1/32 its space without squeezing or 1/64 its space when squeezing.

Swallow Whole (Ex)
If the Nowhere King manage to grapple a creature, it can put the grappled creature in its mouth as a free action and attempt another grapple combat maneuver check (as though attempting to pin the opponent). If it succeed, it swallow the opponent as for the swallow whole special ability. If a creature that is swallowed whole by the Nowhere King manages to escape by cutting itself free, the Nowhere King’s gelatinous body simply seals over the hole created so that other swallowed creatures must cut their own way out.

And this is my first unique creation, which is not taken from some mythology or converted from another work. The Nowhere King is a horror that wants only one thing: to erase the universe and return everything to the primal void. He was imprisoned by a coalition of First One at the dawn of time, even before the outbreak of the Cosmic War, and erased from history to prevent anyone from looking for him. The seal was hidden in the most remote corner of the Universe so that no one could ever, even if they wanted to, free him. But with the passage of time and the various planar upheavals the dungeon in which he is trapped is no longer in the most isolated corner of the world, the defenses have eroded and the guardians broken or dead. Now even a simple demi-deity could enter in search of treasures and without wanting, free it. Or just to free him, since with the weakening of the seal his mind has freed itself and has begun to send dreams of treasures to greedy people and of apocalypse to insane cults to attract them to free him. The gods have yet to notice this but cults of preachers announcing the end of the world are multiplying everywhere.
I really like this, but the "This can't be abrogated" stuff just makes things unbalanced. Everything else is wicked cool, but that part is just like unnecessary and makes the creature unusable. Like, why does it have that power? That seems like an Supernal level ability. It already gets uncanny annihilating effect for free, as only a First One so does it really need this? Moreover, unbalanced things like that make it so it can't really be used in game, abrogation is how you fight things at this level, just giving it a giant "I win button" is stupid, it's already super fuc-king strong.

Everything you make doesn't need to be unbeatable to be a valid, actual threat, in fact, doing so makes your creations unbalanced, meaning unusable without tweaking it. Therefore, invalid at face value, which sucks because I like your creations but, how is anyone supposed to fight this thing, without being able to nullify or abrogate it's capabilities?

A first one should be able to challenge another first one, a demiurge should be able to challenge a First One not just get bodied as it has a bs ability that allows it to kill anything and can't be abrogated. Come on.

I disagree on this, only Herald of the End cannot be abrogated. Why say that a single ability cannot be abrogated should it break the game? You can abrogate everything else including the Transcendental Abilities. I wanted to deliberately give him an ability that would permanently end what he kills and that couldn't be removed so EVERYONE is forced to take into account when fighting him. In history, an entire First One party was forced to go against him just to seal him, not kill him, just to stop him. And in the background they had help from the sleepy mind of the Demiurge. I wanted it to be a step higher than the regular First One. That's not an ability that can be taken normally. It's a unique ability of him as a monster.

This ability by itself is Supernal or Omnific level in power. It gives it 6 free cosmic powers, technically 12 as it's x2 hd, allows it to permanently destroy immortal beings, liches, whatever it wants, by killing their avatars, which is by itself overpowered as fu-ck, thats like killing someone in a video game and them dying in real life because of it, and allows it to take Transcendental level powers without first being Demiurge.

That's like 10 things it does and it can't be abrogated and you disagree that this is gamebreakingly unbalanced? You can only abrogate 1 ability at a time, meaning another first one would need to abrogate this ability anyway, meaning all it's other abilities would remain intact, basically ensuring it's victory unless a group of first ones attacked it.

So please, if you would, explain how can a group of other first ones fight this thing if it gets all this free sh-it and it can't be abrogated? If they're constantly under threat of permanent destruction as this negates their cosmic strings, their preexisting immortality, and any Contingent Resurrection spell or revivification magic cast on them? Every attack made on them would be a permanent death sentence. How could I as a DM reasonably throw this at my party?

Being killed, repeatedly, is a part of high level IH combat, your damage potential and the damage potential of others will always far outstrip the hp pools of enemies, that's why rejuvenation is so important to combat to the whole make up of IH combat at Sidereal level and above. Just reducing that down to an I win button is bs. Abrogate alone can't get rid of multiple things, but it can get rid of a cosmic string, Transmortality, etc, but without getting rid or the other powers it becomes like a game of chess trying to figure out the other beings strengths weaknesses and defenses and if you have a group, peeling off those layers of defense to allow victory to be possible.

So, again, this ability makes this creation horribly overpowered and unable to be used as is. Which I mean is fine, if you're like Apepsnake and just want to make things that can't actually be used by other people.

But, if you're actually trying to make creations that are usable viable things to help enrich the campaigns of other people, which I think you are as your creations though strong have been pretty legit, this has to be roped in somewhat.

Could you imagine playing a campaign for years, getting to first one level, then coming across just another first one who in a single swipe permanently wipes your character out while not even having to go to your realm to do so or even allowing other abilities you've specced for to function.

Oh and it couldn't be negated by any means.

Literally years of hard work gone in an instant because of a power that, for no apparent reason can't be abrogated?

Do you think you'd think that was fair?

You can literally abrogate ability scores, armor class, attack bonus, fundamental parts of a being, but you can't abrogate this one power.

Like how does that makes any sense at all?

No but I purposely made it that way. I wanted you to be a threat to the entire universe. Even a First One party has to be organized well and thinks about it a couple of times before engage it in combat (and not just teleporting next to him taking half the sheet out of him because yes, Abrogate is the ability I hate most and that I have banned together with Astro from my game because the combo summons thousands of minions + Cosmic Inspiratio to give all of them Abrogat and suddenly your Time Lord has become a white sheet with 10 to all the characteristics becoming from CR 1000+ to CR 1/2). Whoever wins the initiative first has won with no answer with such a combo. If you want to counter an ability you get ITS counter, not a stuff that randomly allows you to turn them off the board. Do you want to counter Perfect Defense? Certainly. Get Ultimate Weapon Focus. Grab Oblique Strike to walk around it. You can't take it? Take a weapon with Unerring. INGENIOUS YOURSELF TO EXCEED IT. Don't put an ability (Cosmic to top it off, not even Omnific or Metempiric) that allow you to take an ability of your choice off your opponent. Four people with abrogate and suddenly the fight you have prepared is rendered useless because they take away abilities from the sheet that were essential for it to work. If there is one thing I always like, it is when I put in front of a challenge and you have to strive to overcome it. In the campaign in which I am a player we are 4 levels 5 against a level 13+ wizard and fighter. A suicide? Certainly if we charge them head down. We are currently organizing a network of alliances with various factions to be able to face them. Difficult situation -> reasoning to overcome it. Not an ability that literally takes something off your sheet with no saving throw or rank limit. This makes no sense to me.

Abrogate is a necessary ability. Without it combat becomes impossible at higher levels as you have multiple layers of infinite heath and infinite ac. At Omnific levels you can gain Cosmic Nullification which negates that problem as abrogate is only a cosmic power, moreover abrogate can only be used if the person is within your Divine aura, so if you're faster you can avoid it, if your div aura is bigger you can avoid it, etc, it still requires proximity which if you're a Time Lord, or Demiurge most Sidereals won't get as, if you're smart, you'd have picked up inner eye and some sort of percentage based effect like what is it astro effect that erases people from reality. It's not hard to negate Abrogate for the most part but its a necessary evil for combat to function at higher levels

Moreover I find it ironic that you are complaining about catch all powers when, isn't that exactly what you just gave this thing? An unstoppable power that instantly negates all enemies Cosmic strings and all forms of revivification with absolutely no way to counter it?

Yes. Because I want for THAT specific monster, for ITS specific fight, people calculate well what and how to do. I didn't give it as an ability that can be select any Sidereals or Eternals. Besides, I only remove the automatic revives. A First One can safely resurrect a slain creature. A strategy to overcome is precisely to leave one of the First One party outside the Dead Magic area and ready to use Alter Reality to resurrect a dead ally.

Well you need to specify that in it's entry then. The way it sounds is that no form of rejuvenation works.
 

Quite a heated debate you got here, But i think you are making a better deal of this than it actually is because of 1 ability. I understand you want to make everything beatable but this actually isnt as big of a deal as you think it is.
"Herald of the End (Ex)

The emptiness that it originally reflected had itself been erased at the start of time, and it longed to return to the ancient calm of nonexistence.

The Nowhere King can select Transcendental abilities as normal abilities. This ability cannot be abrogated."

K so first this ability basically just gives it the uncanny annihilating's effect x2HD which you might think is a Huge deal but NOWHERE in this does it say the Annihilating effect is changed. So, its still a deals D6 dmg, which considering an average first one party has hp in the D100s, this isnt a big deal. And the annihilating's permanent dmg can be healed by Wish which as first one they can do for FREE EVERY ROUND.
And if you read the text, the kill any thing permanently thing CAN be overcome by first ones, which the Party is. SO if one of them dies they can Resurrect him AS NORMAL since they are First Ones. Sure it may take a Epic Life seed but thats nothing at this level.
Lastly the select transcendental ability is useless because those abilities can be abrogated as normal and it would be a waste of an action to switch mid combat.
So no, its not that broken.

I have always used as a meaning rejuvenation = passive ability of the creature that activates automatically at the moment of death to bring the creature itself back to life (like lich) while resurrection = ability that must be done by an extra creature to bring back a second creature. A contingency resurrection also works if launched by a First One if it finds a way to work in a Dead Magic Zone (like if the First One has double Magic Portfolio).
 


Yeah i think its because a previous member apepsnake had too many op and 'unbeatable' designs that anytime beef sees a ability that gives lesser abilities and especially the term 'CANNOT be abrogated' he gets flash backs. Not that i blame him since most of his designs (Beef's) tend to be not very outlandish and more definitely beatable by a comparable party

OK summing up the whole discussion:
1) Apepsnake has traumatized Beefer who now every time he sees "It Cannot Be Abrogated" has a reaction like Denzel Crocker of Fairly Oddparents. PS. This is the most important consideration of course.
2) We have confirmed that a First One party that does not behave like my players (i.e. charge head down and improvise on the spot after the bear trap placed in the middle of the path IN PLAIN SIGHT has closed in their face) and relying on that 100 to mental characteristics can face it and even defeat it if they make a good plan and strategy. Never fall into arrogance especially at high levels. Who knows if that little pixie isn't actually a dangerous anomaly that can consume dimensionis?
3) For the opening scene described you can get a glimpse here: this scene inspired me with its terrifying aspect

Lol. You're not wrong. All joking aside, it's mainly that as someone who's been running IH campaigns for 12 years consistently and has had multiple campaigns pass the thousand hit dice mark, I just want quality content and creatures that are actually reasonable marks to hit for a party who might encounter it.

Like the IH Bestiary is filled with beings that are frankly far too weak to be reasonable threats at a certain point, even the Neutronium Golem is pretty easy to beat as it's so straight forward, and I just feel obligated to bring up issues parties or DMs might run across when using user submitted content, as, largely, this is what we have to work with, so if the tools my players are given aren't able to handle a job regardless of how they've specced, I have to call it out, negate it, or modify it for gameplay.

This monster can be dealt with but with difficulty. If you are a First One you can face it but you have to do a REALLY good preparation and strategy to be able to stop it since it is a span above you (I considered it in my setting as the manifestation of the Time Lord's fear, nightmares and paranoia when he has sundered himself to become a Demiurge) and also may seek alliances around the universe to fight him instead of sending soldiers or just yourself as you usually would for another opponent in a normal situation. The Nowhere King is very much on the edge between being a Sidereal and an Anomaly.

Glad you liked it. Basically it is an undead because although they have been mentioned over and over again on this forum no one has put on paper, even remotely, what an umbral is. Is an advanced Unelemental? An outsider? An undead? Totally another thing?
Umbrals are these creatures from the lowest dimension (entropy). They haven't been given stats yet, but are mentioned in the Epic bestiary, and in this thread How do you kill an Umbral? Upper Krust explains what they are like.
