    Anyway, if we're counting dinos, the T-Rex wins, obviously. It's not even a contest. :-P
    The megalodon is still a close second, though!
    Yeah, a megafauna is technically any animal that clocks at over 100 pounds/44 kg, and we count based on that weight threshold.

    Well yes, but we still count based on the typically accepted weight thresholds, which are 90 lb/40 kg or 100 lb/44 kg.

    Every film to come out of Bollywood is horrific. After all, I'm talking from first hand experience.

    The truth is that even good films are bad because Bollywood prioritizes making hundreds of films over a few good ones. The fact I had to put up with them for some days since my second eldest sister married an Hindu with a grandma that loves those flicks sent the message home.

    Yet we are in the most deterministic setting imaginable. I really effing hate it too. It's kind of why I want a macrocosmic event to recreate or reboot TM a la "A Realm Reborn" where the story ends up being greatly simplified. No more Lostbelt crap. One version of history that we know from start to present.

    If I had to add my own opinion, I'm not sure how I feel about this whole divine spirit vs god divide, It comes off as a retcon so nasu and co can do more powercreep/further the stupid fucking sefar narrative.
    I agree with every word in this post: and every story involving Sefar deserves to be burnt in the nearest stove.

    Also, horses. If we want to go by the classic "must be giant" definition, Giant Octopus.

    And as I said this is partially due to my disdain for sefar in general
    The divide is more of a plot device: they are the same thing at a different power level, essentially.

    But yeah, people going "this setting is not confusing" should realize that unless you can agree with everyone on how the story unfolds, the setting is going to be considered confusing to outsiders.
    Ultima prophetiae, veni finis tempus;
    magnus ab integro saeclorum quod mortum. Finis magnus ordo.
    Iam redit Virgo Phaenomi regibus redeunt,
    nova progenies ad caelo surgit.
    Vestra puerorum, qui movere tempus ipsum, et rotam ferrea primum.
    Ac vestra lucis, omnes surgit futurum aureus, novo mundo nascens.

    Kinda curious as to why this setting is deterministic to you? fate or time culling? I agree but im not sure if we have the same reasons so I lean towards time culling as to why for you.

    But I mean think about it, when has divine spirit vs god ever come up besides to powercreep, oh wait that's literally the reason why zeus is 'so strong vs guy who can rewrite his entire world'

    Huh. I feel like the preffix "mega" is being misused here...
    My fanfics:
    The Gift (F/SN): The last duel between Cú Chulainn and Scáthach.
    Passion Acknowledged (F/SN): Shinji X Shirou lemon
    He Was a Good King (F/SN): Was Beowulf a good king?
    A Fairy Tale of Love and Death (F/SN): A meeting between Scáthach and King Hassan.
    Palingenetic Descension (Tsukihime): The origin of the Tohno family's hybrid nature.

    That's only one possible definition of a word that is more used as a relative than an absolute descriptor.

    Kilofauna, for those that weigh kilograms
    Megafauna, for those that weigh megagrams (also known as tons)

    That doesn't matter, of course. Thiccness does not depend on such dry terms as weight.

    And volume usually isn't dry. Moreover, thiccness is not thickness. It's thiccer.

    World of Darkness, which is similar subject matter, did this.

    It was a bad decision.

    I don't think that kind of cosmic reset ever achieved positive results. Besides Crisis on Infinite Earths, perhaps, but I am not versed on DC history.
