Author's Note:  End of Year Reviews are kind of inconvenient for me 
right now, but I have to admit we still need them.  Or I do anyway. 
And, oh right, it's time to start if I don't want people to be reading 
them on New Year's Eve.



Private to the Chancellor Wyatt Ferguson at the Council of Ordered Realities

--- PART 1:  Introduction and SW10 ---

This report describes many of the major universes which are eligible for 
the Council of Ordered Realities but not yet catalogued by it.

We get much of our detail by attaching an eavesdropping device to the 
dimension-hopping duck named Psychovant.  We had sent Psychovant deep 
into an omniversal axis called "RACC", which on some level of reality 
stands for Rec.Arts.Comics.Creative.  We cannot turn off his commentary 
now, no matter what measures we try!  So we provide them here.

Universe SW10 ("Superhuman World 10") is of course a major part of the 
Council; many of its offshoots are represented here.  We survey its main 
Earth and several variants separately 
(http://www.eilertech.com/stories/2008/commentQ2.htm#catalog).  Mostly 
its SW12 ("Earth-Power") offshoot has seen action this year, though our 
Ordered Realities allies have seen some also.


We here report these details for each universe:

- Type:  (Superhuman / Tech / Mystic; indication of what kind of power 
drives the world; Superhuman may include the others)

- Chronicler(s):  (one or more "Writers" whom the universe regards as 
governing powers)

- Chronicler's Web Site:  (if one uses the "http:" subset of our 
Hyper-Body Hyper-Transfer Protocol, one can get a web page summary of 
this universe)

- Tag:  (how to find the stories on RACC)

- Activity:  (roughly weekly / monthly / sporadic / date of last 
activity.  Inactivity is the sign of a dying universe.  SW10 is dying on 
schedule, though its tag still shows activity.  ref: Powernaut)

- Relevance:  (could not / could / has interacted with the Council)

- Threat Analysis:  (how much could they hurt the Council?  This is 
basically the power level plus the crossover potential.)

- Recommendation:  (Monitor, or Quarantine, or Intervene, if the Council 
of Ordered Realities needs to actively pay attention.

- Critique:  (how pleasant is this universe for an observer to learn 
about?  This section uses episodic analysis and treats the universe like 
a story.  It's basically the "review".)

- Paychovant's Comments:  (This comes from a cartoon cyborg demon duck 
with an attitude.  But Psychovant has actually become the Review Duck of 
RACC.  His remarks are preserved for the sake of completeness - and 
heavily but imperfectly edited to prevent an omniversal war.  It's 
basically the dark side of the critique.)


UNIVERSE:  SW10 - "Superhuman World" and Offshoots

- Type:  Superhuman

- Chronicler(s):  Scott Eiler

- Chronicler's Web Site:  http://www.eilertech.com/stories/2011/

- Tag:  SW10

- Activity:  Occasional (once this year)

- Relevance:  Medium (decreased from Major last year).  Donald Trump has 
started his second term as U.S. President there.  Recovering after an 
attack he made upon the RACCies, he's basically docile now.  But a 
couple of SW10 characters had a fight on our ally "Turkworld".

- Threat Analysis:  Medium (decreased from Major last year).  More of 
the history of this world has been revealed recently (see "Powernaut"), 
but in the present time the world seems to have gone inactive. 
Earth-Powernaut is covered separately, but we may suspend this practice 
next year.

- Critique:  (provided privately due to Council security designation)

- Psychovant's Comments:  Don't blame me.  I wasn't there!


UNIVERSE:  SW12 - Powernaut

- Type:  Superhuman

- Chronicler(s):  Scott Eiler

- Chronicler's Web Site:  http://www.eilertech.com/stories/powernaut/

- Tag:  SW10 (still)

- Activity:  Weekly, with breaks of a month or two

- Relevance:  Minor.  Powernauts are largely distracted from other 
universes, by some sort of threat from outer space.

- Threat Analysis:  Minor.  Powernauts finally had some sort of sports 
game against the Legion of Net.Heroes *and* some intruders from 
Earth-SW10.  After that, they seemed ready to take a break.

- Critique:  (provided privately due to Council security designation)

- Psychovant's Comments:  Yeah.  That was me!  Powernaut Comics finally 
has some Duck!  But after that game, I'm ready to take a break too.
