Immortal RelativityEdit

The following table outlines how immortals from two other sources; specifically Original D&D Immortals and the Primal Order (both excellent products well worth investigating that I shall be reviewing in the near future) compare to 3rd Edition D&D, or, more specifically the Immortals Handbook.

As you can see, there are two columns for the Immortals Handbook. Divine Status is a general classification, whereas as Divine Rank represents a more specific treatment.

Kardashev Scale Relativity

The following table gives a rough approximation of where Immortals fit in terms of the Kardashev Scale (more of which you can learn about here), and how they could also translate to Progress Levels (for use with d20 Modern/d20 Future).

I'll update with more examples later. If you can think of any let me know. ;-)

Incidently, I am not sure if Kardashev Type II, III, IV, V, VI and VII should be Progress Levels 11-17 or Progress Levels 20-80 in multiples of ten (I suspect the latter, however I will leave the table as it is for now).

Superhero Relativity

This next table outlines how comic book characters would fit in with the Immortals Handbook. Remember that all power is relative and one does not necessarily need to be a god to be godlike.

Incidently this is not the culmination iof the proposed Theory of Superhero Relativity article I have yet to post, although I do use similar guidelines in said article. Conversion Table 1.3: Divine Rank Comparisons Immortals Handbook
