  • So, [insert splat here] has conquered the world. Now what?

    Bit that came up in my musings;

    Let's say characters from a particular bookline, ones fairly representative of their human subspecies at their most amoral, have been declared rulers of the planet or at least a major imperial superpower. The doomsday device went off without a hitch, the leaders of other nations lie prostrate at their feet, the Resistance is crushed for the foreseeable future, and they can have all the back massagers on the new throne they want.

    Now the question is: "Now what?" Being Celestial Chairman of Supreme Ruling Council of The Universe is nice and all, but seriously, what's the point in ruling everything if you don't leave a legacy your successors and states born from the inevitable dissolution of your empire will look to one day and go "you know, the High Imperator wasn't entirely bad..."

    So, basically, what would be first on the agenda for various supernatural beings after consolidating power over the planet (or hunters)?

    Hunters seem obvious. No monsters, ghosts, ephemeral, then no crime, no thoughts of crime, or immorality. Which obviously is going to screw over a lot of people depending on the views of the Celestial Chairman. Ironically it seems like it would fit in with the goal for the Seers of the Throne.

    Providing one of the Pure could pull it off, either Pangaea is back, sans membrane, or the Hisil rules (which seems to be the goal of Fire-Touched).

      I would love to see a Dark Shard where the Arisen have taken over the world. It would suck for humanity, but it would be interesting.

        I think this is covered in the Shards book.

          If Vampires take over it would be like a huge Battrey Farm ,with people Being Regular tested for Blood quality,

            Well, it'd suck significantly less than if Pure or the Circle of the Crone were in charge.

            Or really, any Beast who feels that the only way to satisfy her Hunger is world domination, because what are the odds that Beast cares enough about the insects she had to crush to get there to moderate it?

              Decently good if they want to keep the buffet running. Don't shit where you eat, even if you are a world power unto yourself.

                A world ruled by prometheans would be very warped.

                  I imagine in the case of Kindred they'd eventually get bored enough to help facilitate the collapsing empire themselves; I imagine the entertainment of world domination would kind of die off after a century or two.

                    Would the most amoral ones be the Centimani or darker refinements like Stannum or the Boyars?

                      I would think so. If you're a Promethean with imperial ambitions, something tells me you aren't prioritizing the Pilgrimage.

                        I'd just see the Sin-Eaters as being incredibly confused as to how this happened.
