Doesn't really matter if the party has time to prepare, and make themselves 100% immune to such breath weapons...
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.

What WAS Godzilla's breath weapon, a nuclear ray??? Not sure what spell that would be.... any way you slice it, I'd take Godzilla over a Tesarque (sp)! (this should start a fight.. should we throw in Solars too??)

Godzilla Breath: Atomic Fire (aka Fusion breath)
King Ghidorah: Lightening
Gamera: Fire Ball
Rodan: Wind
Mothra: Sleep Dust (adult), Silk (larva), Possibly a hypnotic thing with its wings too if I remember correctly.
MechaGodzilla: Missiles, Particle Beam, Lasers
King Kong: Electrical Touch, recharged off of electricity (King Kong vs Godzilla and the only time this was seen)
Hedorah: Toxic Sludge

There was also laser Eye (Gigan), Saw Blade scales, Explosive Pollen I think (Biollante), Space Godzilla had Plasma Beam Breath or similar, A Sonic Shriek, and a few others I can't remember right off the top of my head.

I am a little puzzled with the codec, why make it Japan specific, couldn't codec Asianatica be done?

I am hoping a Codex will be done for every asian group. Their histories and legends are certainly huge/extensive enough to allow for it.

Definitely. As are the pantheons and family politics.

If I thought I needed to change much in C&C I'd just play one of the other 1000 D&D-like games that was closer to what I wanted. Mostly C&C is ok like it is.

I also increase the standard healing rate as part of my house rules. It makes no sense to me that a 1st level PC could be completely healed with three days of rest, but a 10th level PC might take months to get back to full hit points. To correct this horrible injustice, my PCs regain hit points through rest at the rate of one hit point per level per day. Thus, a 1st level PC still heals at the rate of one hit point per day, but a 5th level PC will heal at the rate of 5 hit points per day.

That is a great start, but fighters still take three times longer than mages to heal. Got a good fix to that yet?

I do the 1 point/lvl. bit too plus let them have their CON bonus.. those with high CON heal faster, that helps with the fighters, but not completely. I also allow some hit point recovery not associated with "a nights comfy sleep". See below:

OHR#1 Hit Point Recovery:
When a PC falls below half their max. hit points they can recover 1 hp/class level + CON bonus anytime a full rest is taken.
A full rest is typically a full night’s rest, but can also be as little as one full hour of rest, recovery, prayer, and/or first aid - CK's call, PCs may (should) request. Once back above half their max. hit points, this option cannot be used.

I am torn on whether I would make alignment more important. Maybe have something regarding cleric magic and same-alignment spell effects, such that healing works better on those of like mind, less on minor opposition, and practically not at all against full-bore enemies. But... this makes a fine house rule, where a Castle Keeper wants to add divinity as a stronger force.

I haven't given this too much thought, but I agree with others about the WIS prime for Rangers, maybe a minor tweak to the fighter, and I think the rogue and the assassin could use a bth bump at higher levels (from the CKG). I'm sure I could come up with other ideas, but those are just a few.
