Humanity Fuck Yeah
(My Favorite Essence Meta Build)

[01] Essence of the Home:
By consuming this essence, you gain a personal home that exists outside of reality and beyond the reach of most entities:
- This home is practically impenetrable to any being you do not want inside, even a supreme deity could not pierce the barriers in place on this property.
- The home can be of your design or you can let it surprise you by generating itself based on your needs and wants so it fits itself to you perfectly. As your needs change and grow the home will expand with new facilities as needed.
~ Combine with the megastructure from the "Essence of the Human Science God".
- The home takes care of the basic utilities automatically and requires no connection to any preexisting infrastructure to function. In addition it has functionally infinite supplies of whatever mundane food and drink you could desire.
- While inside the home you and anyone you bring will not age, have any basic needs, or suffer from illnesses.
- You may have the home create servants to tend to it while you are gone, the home has the sapience to manage things. The home is utterly and unwaveringly devoted to you. It cannot be influenced to change its mind otherwise.
- This home has the capability to travel through the multiverse and can give you passage practically anywhere. It can insert itself into these places or simply open a portal for you to travel through.
- Any additional essences will add functionality to this one in the form of additional rooms and facilities depending on what the essence was.

[02] Essence of the Blank:
By taking this essence, you gain but one benefit:
- Your potential becomes limitless. You can learn any discipline or skillset, even if you shouldn't be capable of it, without forgetting it and practice them into mastery, no matter how many you learn. Any abilities you have from other Essences will increase where possible and develop in ways beyond their initial purposes.

[03] Essence of the Brain:
By taking this essence, you unlock the energy of all your brain cells working together:
- Infinite memory and genius level intellect.
- You can manipulate Psionic energy in order to affect the world, the minds/perceptions of others or enhance your own body, all to massive levels.
- You can easily read the mind of anyone you choose, allowing you to easily and subtly manipulate them.
- You can program your power to do particular tasks ahead of time, so that you don't need to focus on them.
- You can sense any and all forces/energy, including time and space, allowing you to control them with enough effort.
- You gain Astral Projection/remote viewing, which allows you to observe distant events or enter the dreams of others. You keep your other powers while in this state, allowing you to exert your abilities from an even greater distance.

[04] Essence of the Binder:
By consuming the essence of the binder you gain several boons:
- Have the ability to mark targets with a sigil of your own design. This sigil manifests wherever you want on their body and may even be full body tattoos should you wish. The Mark can become invisible without active use. At its base lets you telepathically speak to each other and know the exact location and status of whoever marked. This mark is completely immune to any sort of tampering save yourself and is otherwise permanent though you may remove any mark with but a thought.
~ Combine with the hivemind from the "Essence of the Hivemind".
- Those bound by the mark gain access to weaker versions of the essences you have, even this one. You may choose which essences they are empowered with. They may also be granted weaker forms of other powers you may possess at your discretion. If the mark is removed they will retain some but not all of this power just wisps of it.
- Marked beings who mark others will give weaker versions of their own powers to their marked.
- Marked beings have infallible loyalty hammered directly into their mind, body, and soul. They will not and cannot consciously or unconsciously choose to hurt you or go against your will unless you allow it or outright order them to. This loyalty may be dialed from slight trust all the way to complete and total devotion. This function only rests with you and those you explicitly give it to.
- The Binder has the ability to invoke ‘commands’ which are absolute orders the marked is compelled to follow to the best of their ability even temporarily ramping up abilities or forcing their body to do something it isn’t normally capable of to achieve it. This function only rests with you and those you explicitly give it to.
- Those marked may be summoned and dismissed by you at will and even stored away in a void inaccessible by all but you for safe keeping when not needed. They will be in a sleep like stasis when in storage and will not suffer from the passage of time or basic needs.
- If a marked individual is killed even down to the soul they will instead respawn safe and sound inside your storage. Dead beings can be marked if you have remains, a object heavily associated/meaningful to them, or a soul to interact with, they will reform alive as if they had died as one of your marked.
- You and others marked may set conditions and requirements for certain powers or essences, even restrictions that lock down powers should they violate a restriction or other punishment.
- Those marked can have their appearance, traits, attributes, and mark changed by the binder to anything possible within the limits of their species or abilities. You can reset any changes made or revert to an earlier change.

[06] Essence of the Machine:
By taking this Essence, the line between man and machine is wiped away (after all, organics ARE machines, just messier):
- You become aware of every function in your body and state of health, while gaining independence from them. IE, you no longer need your brain to think.
- You can detect, broadcast and receive any sort of signal, along any frequency.
- You can control any mechanical or electronic device.
- You can partition your mind to focus on multiple threads of thought, with no limit on the number. In addition, your thoughts can accelerate ad infinitum.
- You can duplicate or transfer your mind into any device.
- Your body produces a constant supply of nanomachines, which can augment your body in any way and repair/reinforce/upgrade any object.
- At will, you can transform any part of your body into machinery and back again.
- Any technology you imagine can be created by you and your nanomachines, even if it should not logically make sense or be possible.

[07] Essence of the Breeder:
By taking this essence, you become the sexiest thing alive:
- Your body is changed to become your ultimate ideal of sex appeal, including tremendous endowment.
- Porn physics apply to you.
- Members of the opposite sex are inexorably drawn to you. You may toggle this on or off, or set it to target certain criteria.
- Your charisma increases to ridiculous levels.
- You are guaranteed to impregnate or be impregnated every time you have sex, with however many or few babies you want. This can be toggled on and off.
- Pregnancies last up to a third as fast as normal, and your offspring reach sexual maturity in a matter of months.
- There are no negative consequences for incest.
- Your offspring (which can be any sex you wish) can inherit your abilities, either at full power or weaker. You choose which.
- You can breed with any species, and the offspring will either be a half-breed (with just the right amount of fusion) or purely one of the parent's species. You choose which.

[08] Essence of the Echidna:
By consuming the essence of the echidna you will get a few boons:
- You gain the body of a monster that stands at the apex of what is possible to be born from the world and then some. This monster body is of your own design and includes a host of thematic powers which you also may decide upon. This form at minimum is able to take on an army of mortals and could stand up to modern military units and have a good chance at triumphing. That is if you choose mundane earth to be born from. You may pick a different world to be born of, this choice is permanent once made but will strengthen you to the apex of that world or close enough to it. Any particular world can be chosen whether it be one from fantasy, science fiction, or a from the ground up creation of your own. You can transform into your monster body at will and near instantly and have a hybrid for that sits in between your human and monster forms.
~ World Database: https://warhammer40k. fandom .com/wiki/Terra
~ Monster Form: https://powerlisting. fandom .com/wiki/Orgamech_Form
~ Combine the monster form with the commander form from the "Essence of the Commander".
- Your monster form has the ability to create and manipulate a variety of supernatural substances that can bind and trap things. Slime, silk, oil, even mud is something you might use. Anything encased within will be preserved indefinitely unless released needing no sustenance. This material is supernaturally strong and will never decay.
- You can shift the monster form and tinker with it by having it undergo a metamorphosis to change itself. During this you or the monster form will surround itself with a cocoon and shift over several hours or more depending on the changes made. This cocoon is obscenely tough but not invincible.
- You have a complete genetic archive of all life of the world you chose through its entire history up to its present. This archive grows and updates the more species you encounter and take samples of. You have a mastery of life and can mix and match parts, genes, species to your hearts content and produce them without a partner or implant them in a target who can then be bred to create more. You do not require a partner to reproduce as you are able to spontaneously create any of your creatures through some method. You can obtain more forms of life by encountering them and sampling a member of a given species. You will never encounter any issues with absorbing genetic material that might otherwise be hazardous.
- These creatures need not be restricted to what is naturally possible. In the same vein you are able to develop Biotech with the same ease and sophistication as a civilization might build a machine. You may if you desire be biomechanical in origin offering the best of both worlds. In that case your dominion over life is extended to technology as well and is capable of being as advanced as whatever you chose as the world you chose is. These creatures are innately loyal to you and cannot be willingly turned against you, that includes converted life. Any that are killed you can decide to preserve their essence and bring them back reborn anew. If you wish you can have the creatures you produce as extensions of yourself rather than fully fledged entities or pick and choose.
~ Biomechanical Origin: https://powerlisting. fandom .com/wiki/Orgamech_Manipulation
- You are able to turn others into monsters that you have made or have the genetic data for.
- You can with an amount of effort create lesser Echidnas which will have all of the powers and form you have as an Echidna on a weaker scale. They and their children regard you the same as any spawn you might have created personally.

[09] Essence of the Hivemind:
By consuming this essence, you are now a hivemind, a collective of minds bound together in unity:
- How this takes shape is up to you but by default you are the central and dominant intelligence of the hivemind but start out with no other minds linked to you.
~ Collective Consciousness: https://powerlisting. fandom .com/wiki/Mass_Consciousness
- All that are part of the hivemind have a mental link to you that cannot be severed and can talk with you or each other through it.
- Infinite multitasking, memory, and memory storage to handle the load of the hivemind. You will always have access to the collective might of the hives knowledge, skills, and any memories added to it.
~ Combine the hivemind with the "Essence of the Effective Faction".
- You can spawn bodies either direct copies of yourself or customized ones. Everything about them from their looks, personality, attributes, and powers can be changed or modified when they are first created. Anything that places them above that of regular mortals has to be something you possess or have added to the hive. As long as at least one body is intact you and the collective cannot truly die.
- Other individuals join either with their consent or by overpowering their will with your own. Those absorbed will have their memories, skills, and knowledge added into the collective. Their consciousness will remain if desired and will be loyal unto its total destruction.

[10] Essence of the Archmage:
By consuming the essence of the Archmage you gain several boons:
- Perfect memory with infinite storage.
- Beyond genius level intellect.
- Capacity to learn any ‘magic’ even unique ones upon seeing it once or understanding enough about it. This also includes things like Ki, Chakra, soul power, etc.
- Possess a supernatural reactor that can adapt to any supernatural energy to fuel spells, enchantments, powers, etc. this reactor provides a steady supply of power that will grow over time, right now you could use high consumption abilities with wild abandon and still not make much of a dent after a few hours.
- Can teach others systems even if they previously lacked the capacity.
- Manipulate entire systems or combine them with experimentation.
- Capable of casting any spell as long as you have the energy not requiring any extra element like a focus or materials. The time required to cast if any remains however.

[11] Essence of the Commander:
By consuming the essence of the commander you will get a few boons:
- You either gain the body of or have access to the body of a commander. This commander is a massive robot/mecha that can rapidly construct technology, reverse engineer nearly anything it encounters with enough time, fight wars on a mindboggling scale with little difficulty and numerous other things. The exact technology and powers held within this extremely complex machine are up to your discretion, perhaps it even runs on magic. You may freely apply essences directly to the commander specifically to grant it additional function or protection.
~ Psimagitech Database: https://warhammer40k. fandom .com/wiki/Standard_Template_Construct
~ Commander Form: https://powerlisting. fandom .com/wiki/Machine_Lord_Physiology
~ Combine the commander form with the monster form from the "Essence of the Echidna".
- Your technology and any you collect and modify is blackboxed so that it is extremely difficult to reverse engineer without help on your part. You may choose to disable blackboxed tech for things you want to share or don’t care not to share.
- Infinite willpower to tackle any foe, even bloody and broken you will not stop. Any previous mental damage or trauma will be repaired and further trauma and damage is extremely tough to inflict upon you.
- Basic training, enough to fight and defend yourself against most regular foes.
- Immense skill conducting war on a strategic and tactical level.
- A mastery of economics, logistics, politics, and other things needed to run a functional power.
- As the commander you gain perfect and infinite memory with instant recall. Furthermore your mind is able to process and successfully handle the multitasking and management needed to keep your forces in the fight at a massive scale.
- Any units you create are unwaveringly loyal, they cannot be turned against you save with unwilling subversion.

[12] Essence of the Cultivator:
By consuming this essence you become as ridiculously overpowered and blessed with potential and luck as the greatest of xianxia main characters (which, if you know xianxia, is pretty damn ridiculous):
- You gain the ability to 'cultivate' your 'internal energy', allowing you access to increasing tiers of effects and powers in-theme for wuxia and/or xianxia, the exact nature and power level of these effects depending on what degree have cultivated it to. You may use an existing cultivation system from any xianxia novel or create your own.
~ Cultivation Technology: https://powerlisting. fandom .com/wiki/Technology_Embodiment
- You may grant this ability to cultivate to others and teach them your system, but they are limited to their own willpower, comprehensive abilities, and talents when it comes to success. You may still use external means, such as alchemy or creating and sharing secret techniques, to help them.
- Cultivating your internal energy slows down your aging, eventually making you truly unaging. Likewise, you may eventually transcend mortal needs such as sustenance, normal rest, or needing to breathe. Your mind and soul will be adjusted so as to be able to endure immortality.
- Your talent for cultivation and speed and ease of learning at all things related to cultivation (including martial arts, alchemy, and creating artifacts) is beyond ludicrous. Your aptitude is raised to the maximum possible allowable in existence and perhaps slightly beyond even that. You can choose to slow this down when you need to or when you wish to avoid attracting attention.
- This includes your ability to make use of external cultivation aids, such as parts from mystical beasts and exotic plants and treasures. You may easily consume and gain maximum benefit from such things even without preparation, and gain even greater benefits from them with sufficient preparation and alchemical knowledge.
- Even if your cultivation system does not normally provide you with one you will still be gifted with perfect memory, including infinite storage and perfect indexing.
- As one specially blessed by this Essence and the heavens, you may ignore the usual limits of your cultivation system whenever you find it convenient. You may mix incompatible elements, cultivate female-only arts as a male or vice versa, ignore dietary or behavioral restrictions normally required of cultivators, etc.
- Your cultivation cannot be 'crippled'. Injuries that would normally destroy your cultivation instead merely temporarily wound it, but you can heal in time. Likewise, any cultivation techniques that carry a risk of death if performed incorrectly are entirely safe for you; you may or may not succeed at them but failure will never kill or permanently injure you, and you may try again.
- Your cultivation never dead-ends or gets trapped in a bottleneck. Regardless of what choices you make or what system you are in, there are no 'traps' that leave you stuck at a given stage of cultivation forever. All setbacks are clearable with enough hard work and your 'foundation' is always ideally solid.
- Your willpower is truly unlimited, unbreakable, and unsurpassed, and you have a perfect sense of 'self'. No amount of pain or hardship can deter you, no illusion can trap you or bind your heart or soul, and you can focus on a task for eternity if need be. Any cultivation challenges that depend on strength of will or clarity of mind are auto-win for you.
- You have the luck of a top-tier xianxia protagonist. Coincidence and fate favor you greatly, mentors and training materials seem to be available whenever most needed, discovering treasures and rarities seem to be much more common for you than for other people whenever you go exploring and adventuring, and you have plot armor sufficient to survive almost anything.
- Cultivation is not for the idle, but instead for those who struggle and overcome challenges. Regardless of how powerful you grow you may always find things that challenge you if you make a sufficient effort to seek them out, until you finally stand among the highest of beings.

[13] Essence of the Ideal Self:
Drinking this transforms you into your ideal self, as defined by your own wishes and desires:
- Your body changes to whatever physical form you most desire for yourself. This includes gaining physical traits such as strength or agility, up to peak human level. This includes a free, one-time cosmetic body resculpt to your ideal or desired appearance.
~ You are a Cute Androgynous Futanari (with internal testicles).
- Your mind and emotions change to whatever mindset/psyche you most desire for yourself.
~ You are a True Neutral: http://easydamus .com/trueneutral.html
~~ You don't feel strongly one way or the other when it comes to "Good vs Evil" or "Order vs Chaos". You exhibit a lack of bias rather than a commitment to neutrality. You thinks of good as better than evil - after all, you would rather have good neighbours and rulers than evil ones. Still, you're not personally committed to upholding good in any abstract or universal way.
~ You have True Innocence: https://powerlisting. fandom .com/wiki/Apprehension_Immunity
~~ You are completely free from and immune to anxiety, concern, trouble or worries of any kind, allowing you to maintain your confidence and innocence no matter what kind of trouble or torture befalls you. This makes you completely immune to corruption/temptation, granting you a permanent sense of confidence and pure innocence that remains untainted by even the most corruptive of evil forces.
- A one-time full cure of whatever ailments, whether physical, mental, or spiritual, that currently plagues you, and any new ailments of the body, mind, or soul will be prevented from occurring.
- Your intelligence is increased or decreased according to your innermost desire. As 'intelligence' is rather hard to quantify, the maximum you may gain is the equivalent of gaining 16 IQ points on a scale with a standard deviation of 16.
- You gain up to three supernatural powers that you desire the most. These must be specific abilities, rather than any sort of generic 'do anything' powers.
~ Cyber Mind: https://powerlisting. fandom .com/wiki/Cyber_Mind
~ Nano Magic: https://powerlisting. fandom .com/wiki/Nano_Magic
~ Digital Magic: https://powerlisting. fandom .com/wiki/Digital_Magic
- Your body, mind, and soul can never hereafter be altered against your will, in any way. Among other things, this renders you immortal, nearly invulnerable, and immune to mind control.
- Your powers and internal power supplies cannot be drained, suppressed, weakened, stolen, copied, altered, controlled, or otherwise manipulated against your will.
- You also have the ability to turn any of your powers from fully off to fully on, or anywhere in between, and you cannot be forced to use this metaphorical dimmer-switch against your will.
- You will never end up worse off than when you started, as this Elixir will protect you from the negative aspects of your own subconsciousness.

[14] Essence of THE Little Girl:
By drinking this pink sparkling essence filled with unicorns and rainbows you become THE little girl:
- This essence grants you a body that never ages past 13 or the equivalent age where you're considered a little girl.
- You no longer have any illnesses, your mind reverts to a young childhood state and if you were a guy before and viewed yourself as a guy you're now a little girl in everything that counts.
- You can no longer get sick except for the common cold and anime coughing sickness in moments where you need to look cute and vulnerable. These sicknesses will never lead to death, only will ever lead to people seeing you as the perfect little girl and wanting to take care of you.
- Your cuteness knows no bounds. You can charm the hearts of everyone you come in contact with. Even use your charm to make criminals repent for their actions so you never need to worry about people kidnapping you because you are the perfect little girl and have the power of mindcontrol cuteness on your side.
- You can perfectly embody all little girl traits from bratty genki girls to super geniuses that build a.i in their sleep. You may freely switch between these traits and even combine them.
- You may also embody the traits of all little sisters if you have a sibling. These combine well with little girl traits for obvious reasons.
- Your body no longer shows your true strength. You will never have muscle or look like anything other than a little girl, but you may bench press a car if you have the right abilities.
- You will always get a happy family to look after you if you need it or be accept as an orphan with no suspicion. No matter what even if there are records of you existing before you change families. Like you spontaneously and retroactively exist as a daughter to a happy family or live in an orphanage.

[15] Essence of the Involate Self:
Drinking this essence confers you the blessing of inviolability of the body, mind, and soul:
- You now no longer need to eat, drink, breathe, produce human waste, or sleep, and are immune to the harmful effects of radiation alongside extreme environments ranging from the bottom of the ocean to the vacuum of space.
- Total immunity to all forms of poison, sickness, or disease, mundane or otherwise. Any existing ailments of physical, mental, or spiritual nature that plagues you will be completely cured upon drinking this essence.
- You are biologically immortal and utterly tireless, possessing unlimited stamina - you will be be aged/reverted to your physical prime, but no longer age further.
- Infinite willpower to keep going through any amount of hardship; even bloody and broken you will not stop, and you will forevermore be protected from the effects of despair, boredom, ennui, etc., that will make living forever a pain in the ass.
- Your freedom is also inviolate, protecting you from being imprisoned, incapacitated, trapped, bound, sealed, etc. against your will, automatically freeing you from such situations and teleporting you to the nearest safe location.
- You are completely immune to any attempt to forcefully change, control, or manipulate your body, mind, and soul against your will in any fashion no matter what method is attempted or used. Those that use supernaturally boosted persuasion are equally stymied, being forced to rely on simple mundane arguments against you as anything beyond that flatly fails to work. You are also immune to memetic effects or the maddening effects of eldritch beings or phenomena.
- Your soul cannot be targeted as a vector of attack - the only thing you are still vulnerable to will be actual physical violence, if such things can cause damage to you.
- No Oracles or any other form of precognition can account for you, ever. Any predictions that are made will be made without taking you in account, and if seeking you out directly, all they get is static. In addition, you are not bound by fate anymore; your destiny is only what you make of it. This extends to the point that people and events that are deemed unstoppable or even unkillable, just because they are destined to, can be killed by you permanently.
- You are also immune to reality warping shenanigans, such as being caught in time paradoxes, time stops, not existing due to someone killing your mother when she's pregnant with you, etc. - your very existence is inviolate.
- Note: You can still be injured or killed through direct physical damage, if such things are capable of damaging you; all this Essence does is preventing your body, mind, and soul from being affected by other forces without your consent.

[16] Essence of the Primogenitor:
By drinking this Essence, you will receive a number of boons:
- You may freely manipulate your own biology, shaping yourself in any way you can imagine.
- To supplement this, you have an innate understanding of your body’s functions, as well as every part and piece of it.
- You may continue to shape any part of your body, even if it is no longer attached to you.
- In doing so, you may create separate lifeforms to yourself. You will be linked to these creatures by a hivemind.
~ Combine with the hivemind from the "Essence of the Hivemind".
- You may determine the amount of intelligence, free will and autonomy that these creatures possess, from being separate and intelligent beings that are part of your hivemind to empty vessels for your will.
- Your existence can be sustained by the hivemind, such that damage to your original body has no negative effect on your mind so long as you have separate bodies to sustain you.

[17] Essence of the Hypercompetence:
By drinking this perfect Essence, you gain the ability to operate at memetic peak performance:
- This Essence grants you hypercompetence, a level of ability where you can always operate at your absolute peak with trivial ease. You have immense natural talent for anything that you are potentially capable of doing. Likewise, your execution of anything is flawless to the absolute limits of your skill and knowledge, and will not have any fumbles, slips, unforced errors, or anything of the sort.
- Your perfection will not be hampered by a weak or imperfect body or mind. At the time you drink this Essence you are cured of any and all physical ailments and disabilities. You are also made aware of any mental illness, disorders, disabilities or other conditions you may be suffering from and may have any or all of them cured at your discretion.
- Your body is now like a perfectly optimized machine. Your muscles simultaneously have the power of a champion weightlifter and the fast-twitch speed of a master martial artist, your speed, agility, and coordination are top of the charts, and your stamina and resilience are downright cinematic. It would take a truly prolonged period of no exercise to even begin to compromise your physical fitness, and your body will respond as if receiving optimal nutrition so long as you're consuming sufficient calories of any kind.
- Your mind is similarily optimized, with your intellect being augmented to the highest levels that your species could naturally attain on your birthworld. This includes but is not limited to such things as perceptiveness, reaction time, learning rate, pattern recognition, and creativity. Your willpower is now dauntless and your memory is perfect in all respects, although you can still choose to selectively let things fade.
- You also receive a one-time appearance upgrade based on your wishes and idealized self-image, with the exact details of your build and "endowments" being up to you.
- Even your most instantaneous reactions may be undertaken as if you'd had all the time you needed to extensively plan out your next moves. You are likewise immune to being emotionally compromised; you may always think, judge, decide, and act as if you were entirely calm, collected, and focused regardless of whatever emotions you might actually be feeling at the time. You will immediately process any mental harm or trauma in the best possible way for you.
- You also gain an increased capacity for self-awareness and self-reflection. You can clear-headedly process and resolve your guilt and truly learn from both your successes and your failures, and then use what you've learned to make yourself a wiser, stronger-willed, and generally better person. You are immune to PTSD and unwanted value drift, and can retain an essential 'youness' about yourself even as you change and grow.
- Finally, your skills and abilities never degrade regardless of disuse, lack of practice, etc.
- Your hypercompetence may be fully or partially toggled whenever you wish, and may be automatically toggled back on during a life-threatening emergency even if you disabled your instantaneous reactions. Indeed, your instincts for when your hypercompetence may be safely toggled off and when it would be a better idea to leave at least some of it running will themselves be hypercompetent.
- As a special bonus, you receive full control over your fertility and other related buffs.
- This Essence immediately becomes part of your most inherent and innate nature upon first consuming it, and from that point on its benefits will permanently and irrevocably be with you at all times unless voluntarily toggled by you as per the above benefit. Nothing else can ever remove or weaken your hypercompetence in any way; curses, magic, Clarketech, even the will of ROB or equivalent beings, nothing.

[18] Essence of the Effective Faction:
By consuming this Essence, you receive a comprehensive set of advantages by which a faction might better make the most of its resources:
- The benefits of this Essence may apply to any number of discrete factions at full effectiveness. The only requirement is that you are in some way a part of each faction so empowered. Thus, you could use the Essence to enhance an empire, a species, a small team, or even just yourself.
- You gain access to a peculiar Resource, a material that can be used in place of any combination of others. It can just as easily be used to raise pyramids, construct advanced laser rifles, empower magic swords, fuel the growth of biological horrors, or replace truly exotic reagents such as the geneseed of an Astartes. This Resource does not allow you to manufacture anything you could not produce without it, however, and the cost of any given item scales with the economic cost of producing it normally. At the time of consuming this Essence, you may define the nature of your Resource as any physical thing (such as gold, crystal, components, food, metal, and so on). This impacts, amongst other factors, how your Resource can be manufactured or collected most efficiently. It does not necessarily impact what can be produced from your Resource; it is not infeasible to convert 'gold' into a steel sword.
~ Use the megastructure's infinite resources from the "Essence of the Human Science God".
- Your economy is reliant on only one part of the set of territory, population, and infrastructure, chosen at the time of consuming this Essence. Thus, whichever part you choose is as productive as if the other two parts were as good as they could possibly be. You receive a beneficial interpretation of this rule, but not one completely uncaring of potential exploits. Your citizens may be as productive as if working with the best equipment you could give them, but perfect automation that could let one person manage an infinite amount of technology will not lead to infinite economic output. If the effects of this aspect of the Essence would decrease your economic output rather than increase it, they are automatically disabled.
~ Use the megastructure's pocket dimension from the "Essence of the Human Science God".
- The scientific and technological knowledge of your faction is pooled within a flawlessly constructed non-physical repository. This repository is inviolate so long as any members of your faction yet persist, and denies any efforts to reverse engineer your faction's technologies. Knowledge is both copied from the minds of individuals and downloaded into others as required, allowing all researchers to function effectively at the bleeding edge of progress. Combined with a number of error-correcting processes, scientific progress, and especially reverse-engineering, functions significantly more quickly, safely, and easily. Technical knowledge distributed in a similar manner ensures even the most undeveloped parts of your faction can immediately begin manufacturing the newest advanced weapons.
~ Combine with the hivemind from the "Essence of the Hivemind".
- Your faction requires minimal logistical support and upkeep. Occupied territory, soldiers, and machines of war count as part of your productive economy, even while actively fighting. None of your equipment, vehicles, or structures require any maintenance save to repair damage caused by enemy action. Once a vehicle or generator is fueled up, it will never need to be refueled; humans in your faction need neither food, water, nor sleep; downtime and resupply is wholly unnecessary. Similarly, weapons that have been stocked with a full load of ammunition will never need to be reloaded, nor will they actually use up their contents or payloads during combat.
- Though this Essence does not on its own permit the spontaneous generation of new workers, it allows for the expenditure of resources to enhance what you already have. You may spend your Resource to elevate any member of your faction towards their theoretical potential, giving them the benefits of training they could have performed naturally or repairing any manner of damage or injury. You may also spend your Resource to elevate the potential of any member of your faction towards their species' peak, giving a muggle arcane potential or a radioactive mutant flawless compatibility with the most inflexible genetic augmentations. This takes an amount of time similar to spending similar quantities of your resource to construct complex devices.
- Where a member of your faction uses a power that would normally draw upon external energies, they now draw upon a well of similar energies that is distinctly 'of the faction'. This greatly reduces the risk of interference by the normal source of the energies, and makes the powers used by members of your faction significantly harder to tamper with. The benefits of this effect scales with both the amount of stuff 'of the faction' in the local area and with the scope of the faction in total. At a sufficiently high level, this can allow abilities to function in antimagic zones or other places where they really shouldn't.
- Loyal members of your faction will never lose their loyalty to the faction unless interfered with by outside elements. Even interfering in this way is much more difficult than it would normally be; every part of the faction, including inanimate machinery, is significantly more resistant to both loyalty-eroding persuasion and outright supernatural corruption. It is always immediately obvious to still-loyal parts of your faction if a person or object has been subverted in any way; no deception can defy this sense. It is similarly immediately obvious to every loyal part of your faction if an order or command is valid, and thus next to impossible to subvert the chain of command.

- Can breed with anything and still somehow result in a viable half human hybrid that takes more after their human side then alien. You are incredibly charming to non-humans and those with non-human ancestry. Not to say you aren’t charming to humans, humans fucking love you.

[21] Essence of the Humanity Unchained:

~ High Human: https://powerlisting. fandom .com/wiki/Alpha_Human_Physiology
- As a physical baseline, you will receive a perfectly healthy human body of what you would consider ideal appearance. You start out at roughly fifty percent above peak human strength, above peak human toughness and speed, and with peak human senses. You will recover at least several times more rapidly than normal from any injury or illness that does not kill you outright.
- Your intellectual baseline will likewise be increased so that you are a truly multi-faceted genius and at least as smart and talented as any human that has ever lived. You will be a true Renaissance man, able to apply the full force of your intellect to any or all fields of endeavor that might strike your fancy with equal ease.
- If you would already be even theoretically capable of learning how to do something without the benefit of this Essence, whether it be a normal property of the setting or a unique power or ability you already possessed, then your ability to learn and develop that thing is now expanded exponentially. You can explore new modes of thought and new techniques, or learn how to experience new sensations, much more easily than those around you. You are a single-repetition learner for anything that others could teach you and when attempting to discover hidden depths of mastery within yourself or teach yourself then you will need at least two orders of magnitude less time than a 'normal' genius would.
- Being Humanity Unchained means that you are zero risk of ever becoming overspecialized or trapped in an evolutionary dead end. No matter what you learn you can always choose to learn new things if you wish, even if people could not normally learn both. Likewise, you will always be capable of approaching new concepts without being unconsciously biased or constrained by what you already know and instead judging it fairly upon its merits.
- As Humanity Unchained all limitations are lifted from your body, mind, and soul. No matter which quality of yours you are trying to improve, you will always find new ways to advance yourself a reasonable amount in a reasonable timeframe. Ultimately all it takes is you being willing to put in the effort, and you will always be able to muster sufficient willpower to be able to push yourself to improve or encourage others to do likewise.
- Humanity Unchained is intended to be a harbinger of what all humans may one day become. You may with sufficient effort and example eventually help anyone for whom you had the responsibility of ruling, raising, training, or engineering to become Unchained themselves. Likewise, all of your genetic descendants will also be Unchained, and their descendants in turn, ad infinitum.

[22] Essence of the Human Science God:
- You are not an actual god, but you are the peak of humanity in how comic book captain america is a peak human. Your intelligence and understanding dwarfs any of your physical attributes however. You are the super genius, the one who builds an advanced suit of power armor in a cave with scraps, the one they call to fix a hole knocked in space time by an experiment gone wrong. You are probably the smartest person in the room in almost any given situation.
- You are the equal and likely superior to just about any super genius you could care to name with a few exceptions in knowledge and skill. The technology you can make is beyond the wildest dreams of what any normal scientist could even comprehend. Advanced A.I., earth shattering power armor, reactors that generate cosmic energies, power nullifiers and more. You do however not have a limitless font of wisdom to make sure that knowledge gets put to good use. Your ability to make the ‘right’ choices in a given situation remains as it was before your apotheosis. You can further reverse engineer magic, psionics, and other things as a technological equivalent.
~ Supreme Human: https://powerlisting. fandom .com/wiki/Transcendent_Human_Physiology
~ Supreme Scientist: https://powerlisting. fandom .com/wiki/Transcendent_Scientist_Physiology
- You get this while also being as equally as capable a magic and psionic user making all of your tech magitech or even psitech, hell have psimagitech.
~ Supreme Neohuman: https://powerlisting. fandom .com/wiki/Transcendent_Superior_Human_Physiology

- You are skilled in combat and can defeat anyone less then a supernatural master of combat or someone so strong you just cant hurt them.
- Gain ownership of an Earth sized megastructure that serves as your home. It is hidden away in a pocket dimension and safe from most tampering or attacks.

The megastructure and you are linked with an unbreakable connection and can command it anywhere, at any time, the megastructure is incapable of turning against you.
~ Combine the megastructure with the "Essence of the Home".
- The megastructure can create and manipulate matter and energy giving you functionally infinite resources as you require. It has factories and matter forges that can create as much equipment and other tech then you could ever ask for.
- It has its own habitats for other life if you want to do any collecting.
- The megastructure can theoretically hold billions of people to live and work without issue. It is currently uninhabited except by you and your robots.
- The megastructure has a gargantuan palace for yourself and anyone you take in, it is beyond luxurious.
- It can resurrect any individual if it can scan something of them, i.e. their soul or some physical component. It will automatically resurrect you if you are somehow killed without fail.

Using its systems it can create transcendent beings that stand head and shoulders over the normal super robots or AI you can make. The God Anvil can let you build or turn others into your own personalized super beings. Making these Gods is not for the faint of heart, each one represents a ripple of power that could destabilize entire settings, they are walking apocalypses. That said they are programed to view you as their beloved creator with an unbreakable loyalty to weather anything and smother you to death in love, whether that be familial, friends forever, or some other type is up to you. Gods are psychologically incapable of even think of betraying you and automatically disregard anything that would even suggest they do so unless you order them. Even then it would make them uncomfortable to say the least. You may even turn yourself into a God and the megastructure will handle the process for you. A Gods vital essence (soul) is stored in the megastructure so even if they are killed you can simply recall their vital essence of being and slap it in a new vessel. Gods properly designed can threaten or even thrash cosmic beings.
- Gods not in use can be put in storage pods where they will hibernate unaware until called back into service. Individuals converted into Gods, new Gods, or resurrected Gods are automatically placed in storage once completed or restored. You can set or modify the traits, attributes, powers, personality and every other facet of your Gods when they are in storage.

[23] Essence of the Harem Protagonist:
- There is something about you that can attract anyone, even strange alien beings beyond the comprehension of mortals and gods alike.

- Any individuals that become part of your harem will be more willing to put aside differences and grievances to work towards your happiness and their own if circumstances permit. The feelings and loyalty they have for you will remain eternally strong unless you do something terrible to change that.
- Fate, Destiny, and coincidence will bend, twist, warp, and maneuver to keep those in your harem yours. That doesn’t mean they are bound to you forever if they honestly want to move on, just that things like individuals with mind control abilities, infernal lust powers, or a dirty monster tries to claim them these attempts at taking them will fail quite spectacularly. You can sense any who try to claim what is yours and who they are.
