Chuck got PO'd at the universe once before, hence the "Big Bang" theory.
Chuck's aura is so powerful, even trees manage to run away.

I think Keraptis ought to be powerful but not unbeatable.

I ran an alternate ending to WPM years ago and had the party fighting a Keraptis who was a 14th M-U/12th Ill. It worked very well.

I loaded his spell book with misdirection, non-detect type spells and had him fight them through a hallucinatroy wall at the back of a huge, dim cavern (placing him near his escape tunnel). They spent countless rounds fighting monsters (demi and real) and multiple mirror images, et al. I made full use of envirnomental obstacles (flamable materials, stalactites, the edge of a nearby laval pool with a small island) to extend the ploy.

Loads of fun and the best part is that the party ran him down as he tried to make his escape but he breached an underground lava levee that destroyed his treaure, himself and two party members.

To this day, it is the standard by which my remaining friends in gaming rate my modules.

FWIW

It's a little known fact that Dieties and Demigods was origanlly published as a "short solo adventure for Level one Chuck Norris characters" however during playtesting Chuck killed every being in the book just by rolling initiative using the Moon as his D20.

Chuck? I still say Bruce Lee could take him even with all of Chuck's newly aquired powers!

Actually, I do know.  BTB is right...the film has two English names.

Way of the Dragon is the name Bruce Lee gave it.

Return of the Dragon is the name that it usually appeared under in America.

But Bruce is dead and so is Keraptis. Only Chuck walks to fight on.

Isn't there a Michael Moorcock story where Bruce, Chuck and Arnold combine to form Warduke?
