UNIVERSE:  The Goddess

- Type:  Mystic

- Chronicler:  Andrew Foltz ("MrNelson007")

- Chronicler's Web Site:  http://tumblr.com/goddesscorrespondence/

- Activity:  Weekly on Tumblr - but completed in September 2014

- Relevance:  Major, as for last year.  The Goddess already interacts 
with other universes at whim.  Now she has abandoned her connection to 
her homeworld.

- Threat Analysis:  Major but roughly unchanged.  The Earth girl Lydia 
Devin ("The Goddess") has discovered her origin.  She is inactive for 
now, but still seems to retain her powers and is highly available for 
inter-universal action.

- Critique:  It seems Lydia's entire life was a lie due to the actions 
of cosmic forces.  We're not certain we follow the underlying 
motivations, especially those of her sister Elana.  But it bears study.

- Hyper-Piper's Comments:  Yawn.  You concern yourselves about some 
minor cosmic axis called RACC, correct?  This story left there long ago. 
  Now it's some Hyperpocalypse far away, yet we survive.  I actually 
fear Octo-Boy more than this Goddess now.


UNIVERSE:  Super Wizard From Space

- Type:  Superhuman

- Chronicler:  Wil Alambre

- Chronicler's Web Site:  http://wil.alambre.ca/racc/

- Activity:  roughly monthly but on hold

- Relevance:  Has *already* interacted with the Council, and continues 
to affect its worlds.

- Threat Analysis:  Major and increasing.  The core of this universe is 
self-absorbed now, but its fringes have been released.  Its Devils now 
infest your homeworld, Chancellor, retroactively from at least 1944!

- Critique:  Still awesome.  The story before this year pointed at a 
simple final confrontation - but now another force known as the Red Hand 
is on the move, albeit slowly.

- Hyper-Piper's Comments:  Militarists rankle me.  I should love to 
dismantle this Red Hand myself, but undoubtedly other forces would then 
arise.  Over the eons and in dealing with your *own* homeworld, 
Chancellor Wyatt, I have learned my limitations.  As for the others 
within that universe, I should fear them only if they ever wake up.  As 
for its fringes, I bid you good luck.  I rather like your new Devils.


UNIVERSE:  The "Di-Verse"

- Type:  Mystic

- Chronicler:  "Deuce Ex Machina"

- Chronicler's Web Site:  http://deucexmachina.deviantart.com/art/

- Activity:  barely introduced

- Relevance:  Could interact with the Council.

- Threat Analysis:  Intermediate.  The world has Light and Dark factions 
of mages, in a relationship both confrontational and symbiotic.  Their 
leadership (at least among the Dark faction) seems very pragmatic; if 
the need arises, we can probably come to an agreement with them.

- Critique:  This storyline has great potential.  Its Writer specializes 
in mood pieces and character development, and makes the point that Light 
is not always Good and Dark is not always Evil.  Thus far, the center of 
action is a Salon D.Y.A.L. (Dark, Yet Always Lovely), plus some legends 
which might lead up to it.  The stories have been published online for 
years, so everything depends on whether it can continue new episodes.

- Hyper-Piper's Comments:  The most important beings in any universe are 
usually the ones from below.  This universe is no exception.  Dark Lords 
are lower beings to me, but I would gladly submit to the ministrations 
of their salon stylists.
