    Feats for Nyarlathotep?
    Why Are We Here?, by Pendaran

    "...the Myths Transformed version of the legendarium, in which the Moon is Melkor's attempt to make his own Arda with blackjack and hookers."

    "...dropping an orca whale made of fire on your enemies is a pretty strong opening move."

    It’s the Lovecraft Mythos, so almost certainly little-to-none.

    People talk about there being other stuff that's supposedly in-canon. I haven't bothered delving into that, and I would say that unless Lovecraft himself wrote it its canonicity isn't valid for Rumbles' purposes, but it might be interesting.

    Nyarlathotep is like... more a trickster god guy than a powerhouse dude as I recall.

    His whole schtick is being more corruptive influence than blowing stuff up.

    I don't think he has the feats to hang with Shuma.

    August Dereleth's work is considered 'Mythos canon' (though I've some issues with minor changes he's made), in it though Cthulhu shrugs off a nuclear strike.

    ... which is about it, really.

    Nyarlathotep is one of the Outer Gods, who should outrank and be more powerful than the Great Old Ones (like Cthulhu) and their most powerful one is probably Universal in scale.

    Shuma Gorath is one of the Many Angled Ones, and these entities are multiversal; IIRC their bodies can exist and span across multiple dimensions and universes. I would assume multiversal entity > universal ones, and I don't think Nyarlathotep is one of the more powerful Outer Gods.
