Spit doesn't say anything, she just stares at you. Every so often, there's a sickening crunch sound and her body contorts in unnatural ways, as if she were breaking her own bones to move however she pleases.

Her smile is making you feel a bit sick.

I think we'll get a better reaction by acting interested in her than bored. If we pepper her with questions and act like someone she has a chance to manipulate she might let some good info slip, we just have to get her talking first. If she doesn't respond when prompted we can make fun of her for trying to intimidate us with the silent treatment. But yeah, now that I think about it we probably shouldn't reveal that we've had contact with any other gods yet.

If we were going to threaten Spit I'd rather do it cold and professional rather than fake-spooky, given our usual demeanor it would have more impact. Something like...

"We try very hard to be nice, Spit, it's in our nature to try diplomacy first, but if you cross us you will die. All you have to do is refrain from doing unprovoked deliberate harm to sentients just as everyone else does. If you fail to do so we will devote our entire being to the cause of killing until we succeed, that is a promise."

VOIDSY: For someone who's supposedly a psycopathic devourer of gods, you're looking trim.
SPIT: What can I say? Body burns through food like you wouldn't believe.
SPIT: Makes me real hungry.
SPIT: You're looking pretty delectable yourself. Never eaten somebody made of space before.

VOIDSY: Are you flirting with us?

She laughs, hyena-like.
SPIT: Kid, I'm going to tear you apart.
SPIT: By the time I'm through with you, you're gonna end up begging for me to snap your cute little neck.
SPIT: Is that flirty enough for you?

VOIDSY: Sure. We're practically smitten with that cute grin of yours.

Gee, Spit, kinda hard to do that when we're in an entirely different world from you, isn't it? I mean, you're smart, you must notice we're not exactly intimidated, here. That's being an alien collective for you!

How about you let us win this one, and then, from what we hear, we'll be able to become a proper god, where you are and everything. THEN you'll be able to eat us, tear us apart, snap our necks, whatever. I mean, you can't actually do any of those things to us right now, and you won't be able to if we lose, either?

You could even join our team and have a cooperative game for once. Change of pace. Then you can go back to wrecking people, including us.

That implies, and potentially gives away, that we already have a team. Don't say that.

More neutral language might be "We could even team up". Although it might be safer to not raise the fact we're aware of team ups at all.

Even if she agrees to be on our team we can't actually win yet via having everyone on the same team. The game won't end until everyone has a full set of cats, which means if Spit gets on our team before then she could easily just betray us right before she gets her last cat.

VOIDSY: What's your angle? Why did you call us?
SPIT: Can't one god say hi to another?
SPIT: Just because I want to kill you doesn't mean I'm a complete savage.
SPIT: I got some manners!

VOIDSY: I'm afraid you're not going to get off if slaughtering TCPs is your thing.
SPIT: Sure, sure!
SPIT: Getting off isn't really my style, little snack.
SPIT: I'm just hungry, and I don't need to get off to have a good meal.
SPIT: And nothing tastes better than a good bloodbath.

VOIDSY: You won't get much satisfaction out of eating us.
SPIT: You may be all space, but I bet that shell of yours has a wonderful crunch.
SPIT: Might not be too fulfilling, but I never pass up the chance to try a delicacy.

She's right of course, if we don't keep an eye on her she's certain pull something heinous on us, but this isn't the way to do it. She seems to be too shrewd to let anything useful slip, and as >>786054 demonstrates, the same cannot necessarily be said for us. We have better things to do with our time than banter with a psychopath, things which include finding a proper way to monitor said psychopath.

Ok. The way I see it now, is either Spit is here to taunt us, or to distract us. "This call serves no purpose to us anymore, goodbye."

There's no reason to approach Spit's base. She doesn't have any TCPs as far as we know, and since she's very experienced she will know what traps work best.

On the subject of traps... our team should have at least one TCP that can bust them. Either see them so that we can avoid them or disarm them, or outright bypass them somehow, either by moving our TCPs past via teleportation or some other way that won't trigger traps, or bring Spit's TCPs to us so that we don't have to mess around in her base at all.

She was probably either hassling one of our allies for information, or was like peeking through their windows to see... or... wait a minute. Gods that win get to keep their TCPs. That means they can take advantage of TCP powers. We've seen indications that gods aren't omniscient in their home plane. I'm sure some types of TCP can grant remote viewing. Spit has won the game many times now and so has a bunch of TCPs that she can use to gain an advantage.

Wretch do you have any idea what TCPs Spit has in her home plane?

>VOIDSY: Enough of this. Where's Rein?
God damn it.

Maybe she created some item for remote observation, like a crystal ball or a spy satellite or something. Unless it's been possible to freely move the camera around independent of your TCPs the entire time, but why would she be the only one to know that? Did the TCP limit go up while we were talking to her? The other plausible explanation is that Miller leaked the info to her, given their mutual association with Rein and the fact that if it were Eastwood Wretch would have noticed on account of them living next to each other.

"Well, we managed to confirm that Rein is insane, Spit is simply not salvageable."

Ask Wretch to try making a crystal ball and/or a spy satellite, both to see if those are ways Spit could plausibly be spying on us, and to spy on her in turn.

It's also possible that she was able to create something long and hard to detect stretching all the way from her base to ours which would let her look into it due to it counting as part of her base, but we don't know if that's a real exploit that this game has.

>>786351
I agree, but I think "poltergeist" would be better, as it would give it a higher chance of being invisible and able to touch things.

No. 786370 ID: 65ec8d

It was Spit alright. Tell Wretch everything about her, starting with her threat-hint about getting more time the longer we take.

While we're on communicator, though... there's one more idea I've had. Spit is pretty arrogant. She probably feels she deserves to be. And I bet she's not the type to rule her TCPs with friendship and kindness. She's not a person who's going to trust her TCPs, like we trust ours. She's not a person to admit that she herself has flaws, and can make mistakes, which the rest of the gods here kinda sorta do to some extent, I think. So, we recognize there are situations where our TCPs, when properly trained, might have equal or better judgement to us. Spit, I think, would never do that.

So here's an idea: can we create things that specifically protect against gods? Like... we considered a sanctuary temple where violence can't happen, but what about something like an UNHALLOWED SANCTUARY, a place where TCPs can go and be and do things but where the gods can't see and can't act? Or, say, we could create a PROFANE MASK that applies a similar effect to whoever wears it?

I mean, we're Voidsy. Identity and Discord. What's more discordant than a god creating an anti-god item? An item that prevents gods from being able to identify things? Or a place that creates a "void" to the influence of the gods?

Point being, if we put anti-god items and places into the game for the TCPs to use, it's a gamble, but a gamble much more heavily weighted against a person like Spit than it is against us.

Well, according to her and the other gods, that does indeed seem to be her favorite part of these games. So if we deny her the ability to watch, then that'll really mess her up!

There's also a downside to this plan. Our TCPs pretty much rely on us to give them directions. They might get really scared if they can't hear us!

Well, I imagine all the stuff we could create would be opt-in, like "wear this" or "go here". Though, if we create a place we'd want to be careful, we wouldn't want it easily spied on by non-divine methods (place it underground?) and the world seems to like filling in gaps when we make things so we want to be careful, since our ungodly secret zone might be automatically populated with horror monsters or something. Also, we should for sure talk about it to our allies first and make them aware of anything we do or make along those lines.

On the plus side, it'd be a kind of trust exercise with our TCPs. They'll have a little (or big) something that shows them we were willing to give them power over us, which should help build a beyond just "we're your creator and we give you nice things if we feel like it, now go fight and struggle for our victory".

You save your idea for an UNHALLOWED SANCTUARY for after you talk to Wretch. It's a fantastic plan, but you think it may be best to talk to everybody about after you make sure she's okay.

Why are the more powerful gods (and Rein) letting Spit do that, while also letting her win the game repeatedly so that she gets stronger? It's like they want her to eventually get strong enough to eat all the gods and just spawncamp all the lesser gods that keep showing up afterwards. Unless they think that if she gets powerful enough or eats enough she won't be hungry anymore.

Maybe we should take this opportunity to heal up Buddy? Either via Primus or Crunk. Also I think Buddy should not use the magic hat/wand from now on. The health loss is too costly for its lifepool, and it seemed to be more painful to it than the other TCPs' enhanced abilities.

...I suppose the optimal way of healing our smaller TCPs is just to put them in Primus without the hat, since his STORAGE ability doesn't cost health normally. Might be worth giving Buddy a small bit of jelly to boost it up so it's not hurting anymore. Does STORAGE even recover Crunk's lost parts to enable her to heal again, though? Also I'm wondering if using the magic hat on Primus is worth the health cost when Crunk is the one being healed. Is it a net gain if Crunk then heals Primus? I'm not saying to test it out, I'm just wondering what conclusions we can come to based on the information we have.

It wasn't even flirting, we were trying to mess with her dumb act. You think we'd genuinely have any attraction to someone like that? She's horrible. It's not like we literally flirt with everyone.

I mean, parts of us do. Being a collective is confusing. I don't know. I want to say sorry but at the same time I feel like an apology I'd offer would be insincere, which would be worse.

It might also be because we flirted with Wretch first thing, when we met her, and she might be thinking it's the same sort of thing? It isn't. Wretch must be familiar with the concept of insincere flirting. But trying to explain it off feels like it'd come off as weak or shallow.

... Maybe we should do something for her. We made a mask that allowed us to manifest in our TCP's minds. We could make one for her, for her TCPs. I'd like to think someone could wear two masks and we could both appear in there, but I doubt they work that way.

Trying to get a reaction out of Spit seemed to make sense at the time, but we failed to consider that we're coming into a non-blank state situation, things have already happened between people. To try to explain and justify what we did any further than that would be wrong. We've already established what we made was a bad call because it got us no info from Spit and it hurt Wretch. Those of us who are trying to flirt with Eastwood, shush, you're not helping here.

What we need to do now is to apologise and somehow make it up to Wretch once she's calmed down, and stop trying to flirt with everyone, or at the very, very least find out more about that person and how they relate to others so we can apply a level of discretion by considering who it might hurt if they found out.

Being a collective, it's like ideas can have a form of momentum, even the bad ones. Group think kinda always applies with us, which leads to faulty decision making sometimes. Having a load of different people having ideas for things to do any say conflicting and agreeing with each other, kinda means we can blurt out some things, and then just roll with it.

Once Wretch comes back tell her that as a collective there are many different opinions vying to express themselves at all times. Some thought we should flirt with Spit but many thought it was a bad idea and kept it subdued and strategic. Some thought Miller was really cute, and some think that we should kill everyone, but nearly all of our collective think Wretch is amazing and like her more than anyone.

VOIDSY: Everyone deserves to be thought of as sexy sometimes. You look shiny and colorful yourself.
VOIDSY: Not to mention the curves- fuck, sorry. Collective.

Even without eyes, you get the sense that he's glaring at you.

VOIDSY: Things get jumbled up or just...come out along the way. It doesn't make what we did okay, and we're going to try and own up to it and repress this kind of stuff if we can.
VOIDSY: They're old habits to break. We flirt with dozens of beings every single day, and it's how we've solved a lot of problems.

Still glaring. You just keep talking in hopes that he chills out a little.

VOIDSY: We didn't mean any of the flirtation though- it was all insincere and an attempt to throw Spit off balance, to make her feel like we don't take her seriously. We'd never actually be attracted to someone as horrible as her.

VOIDSY: Can you just....tell her to call us back when she calms down? We want to make this right, even if we don't exactly know how right now.
VOIDSY: No matter what our collective ends up doing, we all like Wretch and think she's absolutely amazing.

EASTWOOD: Alright.
EASTWOOD: Fine. It's my turn to speak my mind.
EASTWOOD: Whether you like her or not, I think you're absolutely terrible for her.
EASTWOOD: You talk about all this insincerity, and how you didn't mean it- what the hell did you do when you first met her, huh?
EASTWOOD: I can't say for sure, but by guessing how smitten she is with you, she fell right for your smooth talk.
EASTWOOD: Wretch may be loud and crass, but she's also gullible as fuck.
EASTWOOD: You want to apologize and fix this? I support that. Even from an objective standpoint, we need you here in this alliance.
EASTWOOD: Hell, I think she needs a real friend and not just some crusty weirdo who lives in her basement.
EASTWOOD: Don't fuck this up. You're on thin ice right now, but if you're willing to turn this around, I might change my mind on you.

Eastwood clears his nonexistant throat and taps anxiously on his crystals.
EASTWOOD: I'll go help her calm down, but in turn you have to move with our current plan.
EASTWOOD: We've agreed to go back to our bases, get a new TCP each, and gear up for war.
EASTWOOD: We can keep in touch using comms and regroup if we need to. Spit's going to have one TCP against 11, and I like those odds.
EASTWOOD: Looking at our current plans, you'll need to spawn one TCP, create a guardian animal, gear up every cat with weapons, some kind of inventory, supplies, and clothes. If you want to go ahead and do this goofy ass battle of the bands deal, I guess an instrument for your new guy would be in order too.
EASTWOOD: I can bounce type ideas off you while you head back, if you're up for it.

No. 786888 ID: 350a50

Some ideas:
-Mom/Mama type? Something that has a natural instinct and ability to protect others. A counterpart to Dad's power of authority.
-A sphinx (an intelligent cat-like guardian creature that speaks in riddles)
-An UNHALLOWED SANCTUARY. A private place where Spit can't micromanage and coerce her TCPs, where ours' could use superior teamwork and diplomacy to their advantage. We will need more team building training before the kitties are ready for this.
>>
No. 786889 ID: 65ec8d

Ok. Tell her we were worried when she suddenly logged off, please?

Oh, speaking of ideas, there's one we had that we'd need everyone to give the ok on to work. Everyone in our alliance, I mean. We had the idea that Spit's weak point is probably her relationship with her TCPs. Plus, she's arrogant, not as... uh, humble as the rest of us. I mean, we could all admit to the idea that in some situations, when they're trained right, our TCPs could know better than us for some things. That we can trust them, you know? At least more than Spit can trust hers, the way we imagine she'll treat them.

So... if we created something that would give the TCPs some advantage against us, like a way to hide from us, or something that could protect them from us, if they wanted? It'd be a risk to us, but much more of a risk to Spit. As a void god, with dominion over identity and discord, I'd guess we could create some sort of "void" for divine perception or influence. Gods wouldn't be able identify or influence anything within it, and the whole idea of a god creating anti-god things probably falls into the domain of discord. Upsetting the hierarchy, you know? Set the stage for possible revolutions. And it'd be a display of trust towards our TCPs, as well. Us being willing to give them something like that, them having some tangible evidence of our trust for them, could help a lot versus whatever loyalty breaking shenanigans Spit might try.

But, I'm guessing there's a good chance you guys might have rules against gods creating anti-god stuff? And like... I mean, being a void, and if our identity is being a god and we add discord to the mix, combining those two together, we might end up being some sort of... anti-god. A god of ungodliness. I mean we have plenty of that in our world to import. I could see you guys having problems with that.

Plus, if we did create some sort of cavernous underground UNHALLOWED SANCTUARY, well when we made ruins they got filled with puzzles and we don't know what might be filled in in that sort of place. It'd be a literally, actually capitalized Unholy place. Maybe making items that had that effect would be better? But the idea is to create something that Spit's TCPs would have easy access to. To enable their potential rebellion.

Speaking of creating items, do you think we could create matching masks to the Mask of Courage we already made, that would let you guys speak and manifest directly in your TCPs' minds as well? Would you like us to? I bet Wretch would like being able to do that with hers.

>Check the map while sending tcp's back

The flirting did start out somewhat insincere, and we'll admit that. That doesn't change that current flirting with Wretch is sincere.

So to start out I'm thinking of with the potential plan of having tcp's craft their own gear would it be helpful for them to learn to use the surroundings to create camouflage and be able to make weapons from what they find? such as wooden crossbows.
I've got an idea for a magical mask item to make sure the tcp's can see behind themselves too, but I'm not sure if it's needed.
>>
No. 786891 ID: d662ef

Sure, go ahead. You or Wretch might like a pheonix type, it's a flaming bird from Earth myth able to be reborn whenever it dies.

We should do a poltergeist or sight TCP to get intel on Spit.

Thank you Eastwood, we owe you big time.

Well, we've got a bunch of ideas about a next TCP: Alchemist or Technician if we got focus on building stuff. Or if we feel like we need info more: Poltergeist or Surveillance.

>>786891
Yeah, Eastwood needs to know about that, Spit has no TCPs atm. So something really strange is going on if she can track us.

To join the internal discussion about guardian creatures, I'm for just a plain Sphinx. Big old cat that asks riddles.

As for our issue with filtering, maybe we should try and be aware of what each other is saying and shoot down ideas that we feel are bad? Stop bad ideas before happen? Just to get a bit more of a consensus before we act?

We're missing a spy/scout/infiltrator. We know basically nothing about Spit, which is awful considering she has a reputation for being crafty and ending games extremely quickly.

Thinking of giving Marnet a shotgun with beanbag rounds. Non-lethal ammo that can deal damage, but can't drive a kitty into Kill range.

Maybe Primus could carry a riot shield or tower shield of some sort, to provide portable cover for our allies and better shield whoever he's healing from piercing damage.

Then again, they could end up working well together. Might even help Dad not feel so overwhelmed with the responsibility of being the leader if she has another leader to help her.

It's a gamble on how this'll turn out. But obviously, since Dad is female, if we make a Mom, it's gonna end up being a male! XD

You give the orders for your TCPs to return home, and with a very drawn out group hug with their new friends, they're off.

VOIDSY: First things first, Spit knew we weren't home.
EASTWOOD: That'd be an easy guess, considering she can't create TCPs right now. None of us can until we return to our bases.
EASTWOOD: Could be she has some way of spying, but knowing her, a guess to fake you out lines up with her techniques.

VOIDSY: Some type ideas we're having...a mom type, a poltergeist type, or a phoenix type. Possibly some others if we can think them up. Still working on it. Cuttlefish is also a possibility, as are alchemist and technician.
EASTWOOD: Hm. Mom would probably work well with Dad's abilities, if I'm guessing right. It's not a bad call there, so long as they get along.
EASTWOOD: A poltergeist is a really interesting idea, so long as it doesn't try pranking you. If the ghosts where you come from are anything like ours, passing through walls would be no big deal- really useful for recon.
EASTWOOD: A phoenix...I think I'm familiar with that urban legend. I don't think any TCP is impervious to death once a kill command has been issued, but having one that can cheat it even once would be invaluable.
EASTWOOD: Alchemist, technician...both potentially useful. Less so than the others, I'd say- unless you want to go for specific skillsets. If you are looking for specifics, they'd be incredibly good.
EASTWOOD: Cuttlefish, though. I have no idea what that is. Can't really help you there.

VOIDSY: We're pretty set on the idea of a sphynx for our guardian. It's an intelligent cat guardian that tells riddles, and is quite fearsome.
EASTWOOD: Now there's an idea. No issues there, I'd say go for it.
EASTWOOD: I talked to Miller, and she's going to make some kind of sea predator. Looking forward to seeing that in action.
EASTWOOD: As for myself, I'm going with a simple construct. Made to deal with intruders swiftly and navigate the caves with skill. Easy.

VOIDSY: One of our big ideas we've been mulling over is an UNHALLOWED SANCTUARY. Possibly underground, it'd be a completely invisible zone to us gods. A place where we cannot see or command, and where TCPs themselves can make decisions and discuss. We outnumber Spit significantly, and our TCPs get along great. We might be able to sway them over to our side without Spit interfering, and nobody needs to die.
EASTWOOD: Hm.
EASTWOOD: I like this. I really dig this.
EASTWOOD: Your camp's in the middle, so that's on you to create. Nice thinking, newbie.

VOIDSY: How about matching masks? Possibly even for your TCPs...
EASTWOOD: Definitely a good way to go about it, seeing as motif stuff is a great investment.
EASTWOOD: I'm not certain on how it'd work with our cats, but it's worth a shot.

VOIDSY: And hey...can you tell Wretch we were worried when she logged off? Even if our flirting with Spit was insincere, none of our actions towards her are. We care about her.
EASTWOOD: You coming in screaming as soon as she did clued me in on that.
EASTWOOD: Sure. She could probably use that right now.

EASTWOOD: What else you got?

No, I think we have to. In fact, I think we're the only one who can and will stop Spit.

Rein is unwilling to kill. Spit will continue to grow in strength. Apparently nobody as the balls to do the stupid thing and go kamikaze, or there's too much interpersonal baggage and rules holding everyone back. There may come a time when Rein can no longer contain her.

We have power over Identity and Discord, or at least we will, and Masks are our motif - putting on a different persona. We need to win, and keep winning.

Spit may be irredeemable as she is, yet we have the exact Domain set to change that without killing anyone or upsetting the status quo into open conflict. But she's powerful, and we have a lot of catching up to do.

VOIDSY: Correcting our previous idea of poltergeist to phantom type- a similar type of specter. We hope it may have some synergy with our mask motif, seeing as it lines up well with a story from our world.
EASTWOOD: Go for it. The more you can line up your TCP with both your goals and motifs, the stronger your team will be.
VOIDSY: We think we'll go for either that or phoenix type, then.

VOIDSY: Is there any way to help you, Wretch and Miller win without claiming the prize?
EASTWOOD: Weird question, but okay.
EASTWOOD: I mean sure, you could force your TCPs to go rogue and lose by that, but you'd be essentially committing suicide.
EASTWOOD: So if that's your plan, know what you're in for there.

VOIDSY: Why did you pick gun type, why not something more specific?
EASTWOOD: Gets the job done.
EASTWOOD: If you go and specify, you'll get exactly what you want...but chances are the ability will be similar to the generic type anyway. Guns shoot bullets, period. Some guns have more specific purposes, sure- but you risk making a unitasker.
EASTWOOD: And all I care about is if it can shoot good.

VOIDSY: Would adding more creatures to the world help?
EASTWOOD: Nope.
EASTWOOD: That kind of stuff helps give the world flavor, but unless you have something specific for a purpose in mind, I'd say we're about set on that.
EASTWOOD: You'd be better off focusing on gearing up your TCPs.
VOIDSY: How about more bases or dungeons?
EASTWOOD: Eh, not really.
EASTWOOD: The unhallowed sanctuary is a great idea, but I can't think of anything else really- though if you have a goal for your base, you might want to think on that.

VOIDSY: We'd like to work more with both our motifs and domains. We have lots of ideas for masks, but what kind of things can you think of for discord?
EASTWOOD: Discord seems like a pretty easy domain to work with. Anything disruptive or chaotic would do good work there.

Ok, I think we're definitely going to make an UNHALLOWED SANCTUARY, but for best result we need everyone in the alliance to be on board with that so our TCPs know we all decided to trust them with it, so that we can all tell our TCPs about it (when we confirm we've made it to you all), and because it's not something you want to be surprised by.

Could you tell Wretch? It'd be bad for us to call her up just to tell her a serious business thing right now. We'll tell Miller.

Command: Shoot Miller a quick message telling her what's what with the sanctuary idea.

>Phantom TCP

I'm kind of leery of a Phantom TCP because it seems like a TCP's personality is strongly influenced by its type, albeit sometimes in roundabout ways.

Your TCPs have arrived home, and they spend a fair amount of time regrouping and preparing for the new arrival. Buddy is healed up within Primus, bringing its health back to its maximum of OKAY. Primus himself stretches and does his best to keep everyone's spirits up. Dad seems somber, but determined to make this work. She directs the others in their preparations, and Marnet aids in gathering up the animals outside. Both Bee and the capybara are restless, and the lobster type notes that perhaps they can feel how tense this all is.

It seems like an eternity, but it comes. The TCP LIMIT is now 12.

Well, with no support for ninja (and I can see the intangibility argument, though I'm not sure if it really would be intangible?) I'll put my weight behind SPAWN: PHANTOM. I'm hoping we could retroactively tell our TCPs that we're going to do that before the TCP limit was raised.

I'm worried our window to CREATE comes to an end when all the TCPs have been created by everyone, so.... First, let's get the big one out of the way.

I don't know if visualization helps, but just in case it does: as close to the intersection between everyone's divine territories as possible; at least partly underground or wholly if we can manage; hopefully with hidden entrances for convenient TCP access; and preferably both defensible and not unbearable to stay in for them... CREATE: UNHALLOWED SANCTUARY.

And then another flood of creations. Next one we've pretty much agreed on: CREATE: GUARDIAN SPHINX

Not sure how well these will work, but let's try:
CREATE: WRETCH MASK
CREATE: MILLER MASK
CREATE: EASTWOOD MASK

Aaand... let's see, we need accommodations for our new TCPs and for allied guests, and defense. CREATE: TOWER EXTENSION + CURTAIN WALL and while we're at it let's CREATE: HEDGE MAZE for more defense and GARDENS to go with it. And TEACH MARNET: GARDENING because why not, it's something enjoyable you can do with big snipper claws, and she can learn her way around the hedge maze for extra defense advantage and to escort our allies in. Hopefully TCPs in our tower will be able to look down and see into the hedge maze as well, maybe guiding people on defense?

For that we need communications, though. If the tower can support it, CREATE: TELEPHONE MAST and WINDMILL GENERATOR, and GIVE TCPs: MOBILE PHONES.

The phone system is unnecessary, Wretch spawned in some walkie talkies for everyone when we were at her base.

Also agreeing on the CREATE: Sphinx as I'd forgotten about that.

For the unhallowed sanctuary, agreeing on the theme, just a neutral but pleasant looking place.

I feel like we should get our new TCP settled in and briefed on the situation before we create all that though.

Teach: Organ Playing

Create Horror(Familiar): Creepy Organ

This living Organ is bound to an accompanying mask which must be worn by the player to use this objects magic. The organ feels when it is touched or played and sees, hears, and feels (both emotionally and tactically) whatever the wearer does.
This Organ can manipulate the hearts and minds of all that hear it when played. By pouring in some energy while playing emotively, the masked player can alter the emotions of all in earshot, or even draw them into a trance like state.
This creature feeds off of the raw emotion of those that hear it. When left un-played it will occasionally play on it's own in a variety of melodies. If it's abandoned for a long period of time, it may attempt to send poential listeners into trance so it can devour them. Devoured creatures are left alive for as long as possible while being subjected to constant pain as to maximize the harvested emotion. The player can order the Organ to devour an entranced victim if he so desires. Doing so vastly increases the organs ability to manipulate those around it.
In optimal crowded conditions the organ might absorb more emotion than it can use at once, this energy is transferred to the mask bearer as health.
The Organ can be summoned to the masked wearers location at will but cannot be dismissed, it must be called somewhere else or physically moved.

Architecture could be used to improve our defenses and to help penetrate Spit's, and stage magic is both a pleasant performance art that could entertain other TCPs AND gives sleight of hand and misdirection skills that would be very valuable to a spy.

Jasper floats above the spawning pool, watching the other TCPs approach. They back away as Dad reaches a hand out, and only approaches when they step back. Dad TEACHES them SPEECH, and they don't do anything at first.

It's a few minutes of awkward silence before they ask what they're doing here, existing. Their voice is whispery but intelligible, and Marnet replies that the void brought them here! They were going to be a new friend and part of the family, and this was their new home.

Jasper asks if they have a choice in this matter. Everyone goes quiet again, and Buddy's the first to speak. It says that Jasper can leave whenever they want, but there's danger out there right now, and they have better chances of survival if Jasper stays with them. We need eachother, it says, voice trembling.

Jasper nods, accepting the answer for now. They don't seem very warm to the idea of living here, but allow the other TCPs to lead them inside and show off the house.

For the team outfit, we should go with something resembling a modern military uniform. This is serious business, we need our TCPs to be in the mindset of a unified force. Plus, military uniforms are designed with utility in mind, providing camouflage, storage space, protection from the elements, and ease of movement.

I don't want to commit to any one set of weapons until we know what Spit is using. We should either give our TCPs medieval weapons and scout her as quickly as possible, or make a big stockpile of weapons ranging from primitive to futuristic and perform our espionage with more care and preparation.

It's actually a good thing Jasper is a bit of a loner, considering they're probably going to be spending extended periods of time away from the others.

Hello Jasper, welcome to the team. We are Void, not to be confused with the void which is the creative force in this world, and we're the god leading this group. Though I suppose Dad is something of a co-leader at this point. Is there anything we can do to make you more at home? We're about to make you a room, of course, but it sounds like you have desires of your own past that.

Let's CREATE new rooms for the TCPs that don't have their own rooms yet.
As for motif-friendly weapons... uh... how the heck can we make mask-related weapons? I suppose shields can look like masks. Razor sharp masks that can be thrown? Maybe a battleaxe that has a mask-shaped blade? Or a warhammer with mask patterns on the flat parts? Oh, wait, maybe we can just have our TCPs wear masks that match their weapons? Like a wolf mask with claws, or a gasmask with flamethrower, or a hockey mask with chainsaw or hockey stick? Fencing mask and rapier? I'm thinking that the knife could be used with that mask from the Halloween movies, or the ghost-like mask from Scream. Maybe not, though. It sounds like the uniform is separate from weapons.
We could just put little decorative mask designs on weapons...?
Discord and Identity seem even harder to match up to weapons. Maybe an axe that looks like a guitar and produces a really awful discordant sound when you hit someone with it? Or other things like that. I'm not sure Discord is related to music in our case though. Maybe something that would incite friendly fire in the enemy, but that sounds like magic item territory. Even if it made sense like a needlegun that would inject mind-altering drugs. (also that'd be more like Eastwood's motif)

GIVE Primus MaskHammer
GIVE Dad mask-shuriken
GIVE Marnet a Greatshield with mask design (maybe something stern-looking like a gargoyle face)
GIVE Marnet Mask-Battleaxe

Not sure what to give Jasper for a weapon. A sword, maybe?

Not all riot shields are heavy, but Primus is our healer and keeps injured inside of him he should have some form of armor. Since armor would compromise his healing, a shield is a more maneuverable alternative. A ballistic riot shield would protect his wounded passenger from any bullets or piercing weapons that might get them inside.
Hatchets are also camping supplies, so it fits a Tent TCP, and has utility outside of being a weapon, fitting his Adventurer personality.
He can keep his Stake Launcher as a ranged option.

I'll throw in support for the walking stick and hunting rifle instead though, for Dad. He can use his Walker as a firing platform for the rifle if he needs to.

My logic for Buddy is that Zorro style fits our motif, which might give Buddy a bit of a thematic boost, particularly with Zorro's signature weapons.

Logic behind Marnet's loadout is that a net is aquatic, so it fits her better than Primus. The shotgun is a good idea, but could be devastating. I think we should have both real shotty ammo and beanbag riot rounds, in case we need a more forceful non-lethal option.

The taser has no real thematic elements. I just figured that electricity, as energy, would affect things even if Jasper was physically phased out. It's also another forceful, but non-lethal option.

Buddy should never be without a knife. A Fairbain-Sykes, a balisong, a throwing dagger. It's simply not going to resonate with anything else as well.

A shield can be set aside if it becomes an obstacle, but it can't be picked up when needed unless it exists.

I don't really see the need to use "nonlethal" weapons, seeing as all weapons are nonlethal in this game unless you use the KILL command. You can't even really do much permanent damage considering how abundant magical healing is. If it comes to the point where we need weapons at all I don't want to be held back by a pointless handicap.

Realized a terrifying something: if I'm remembering right, Spit has no TCPs currently created. THIS IS REALLY BAD. It means that she could adapt her team's composition to us if she gets any amount of information regarding our compositions.

Dad is sure to TEACH everyone how to use their new weapons effectively, and they all stand back to assess the situation.

>CHECK: All TCPs, stats, inventories and skills
Primus is outfitted with a cape, hunter’s mask, and a poncho with easy access to his inside compartment, a nice set of trousers and boots, and an emblem to clasp it all together.

Primus is a TENT TYPE, and as a STORAGE TCP, his ability is SHELTER, allowing him to heal TCPs inside his torso cavity. He’s made of a canvas material and communicates through whistling, and despite his outer material, he is a very sturdy TCP with a maximum health of FANTASTIC. His current health is GOOD, and he’s still feeling a bit dizzy.

Primus is a little anxious- he trusts you entirely, but knows that the upcoming fight will likely be brutal. He’s very grateful for the new equipment and look, striking a few poses and stretching to test his mobility.

His equipment is now a STAKE SHOOTER, NET SHOOTER, RIOT SHIELD, and HATCHET. He also has the MAP CONTAINER for adventuring and a HARMONICA for battle of the bands. His hatchet, stake and net shooters have IDENTITY SYNERGY with him, and will do more damage than usual weapons. His riot shield also has MASK SYNERGY, and will withstand more damage..

His inventories are as follows: a TORSO CAVITY for TCPs, a HEAD POCKET for items, and a MAP CONTAINER for maps. The only item on his person currently is a THRASHCORE CAMPING IPOD inside his head pocket.

Primus has a large amount of skills in all departments.
His basic skills include SPEECH, WRITING, READING, and TEACHING.
He can use an UPLOAD/DOWNLOAD MACHINE, a STAKE SHOOTER, a NET SHOOTER, HATCHET, and RIOT SHIELD. He can also use THE WALKER.
He is well versed in the arts of SHADOW PUPPETRY, NARRATIVE, and DANCE.
He can fight using any of his weapons, as well as the skills of BOXING and BASIC DEFENCE.
His survival skills are ROCK CLIMBING, PARKOUR, CAMPING, and SURGERY.

Buddy is outfitted with a cape, emblem, dress, flower barrette, rubber caps, mask, and bandolier. It also opts to keep the bandages on for now.

Buddy is a KNIFE TYPE, and as a WEAPON TCP, its ability is IMPALE, allowing it to spawn knives anywhere on its body at the cost of its own health. These knives are PERMANENT. Its outer material appears to be a velvet-y fur, and its inner fluid is full of blades. It communicates through grinding noises and has a maximum health of OKAY, making it a very weak TCP defensively. Buddy’s health is currently HURTING, and it will be in danger of death if targetted by a KILL COMMAND and hurt much further. The pain has turned into a dull sensation around its wound, and moving around is hard.

Buddy doesn’t really know what to feel right now, due to pain. It responds that it wants to be stored by Primus soon.

Its equipment is now the TREEHOUSE KNIFE and THROWING DAGGERS, the former made more concealable under its cape. The treehouse knife now has both MASK and IDENTITY synergy, and the daggers have IDENTITY synergy.

It has no inventories as of current, but does have a DUFFEL BAG it can take with it to store items.

Buddy is well rounded, with skills in every department.
Its basic skills include SPEECH, WRITING, and READING.
It can use KNIVES.
It is well versed in the arts of HARP PLAYING, DRAWING, and DANCE.
It can fight using any of its weapons, as well as using CLOSE QUARTERS COMBAT.

Dad is outfitted with a new suit, a cape and a crown, an emblem clasp, and pouches to hold her ammunition. She opts to keep the communication mask instead of getting a new one.

Dad is a DAD TYPE, and as a CREATURE TCP, her ability is FATHERLY AUTHORITY, a passive effect that allows her to command any TCP to do as she says, even overriding other player gods. She is fairly standard for a TCP and covered in a squishy material, and communicates via gruff grumbles. She is very small and agile, and has a maximum health of GREAT. Her current health is GREAT, and she feels right as rain.

Dad is antsy, feeling more prepared after being armed, but not looking forward to using the new gear. She does her best to put on a good face for the new arrival, telling them a few jokes and stories from their brief but adventurous life so far. Jasper seems to calm down as she does so, and Dad feels very accomplished at that.

Her equipment is now a HUNTING RIFLE (with both regular bullets and tranquilizers) and a CATTLE PROD. She can also use the DADWALKER for extra speed and mobility, and is confident in her skill with all of these weapons. Her rifle has IDENTITY SYNERGY, and will do more damage.

Dad’s inventory is primarily the DADWALKER’s storage, capable of holding the most on her person than the rest of the TCPs. Said inventory is currently empty.

Dad is a very knowledgeable TCP, and has a good spread of skills.
Her basic skills include SPEECH, READING, WRITING, TEACHING.
She can use HUNTING RIFLES, CATTLE PRODS, UPLOAD/DOWNLOAD MACHINES, WALKERS, MAGIC ITEMS, and is skilled in INVENTORY MANAGEMENT.
She is well versed in the art of DANCE.
Se can fight using any of her weapons, and KUNG FU.
Her surviving skills include COOKING.

Marnet is outfitted with a jumpsuit, a new cape complete with emblem, and a bandana.

Marnet is a LOBSTER TYPE, and as a CREATURE TCP, her ability is SHELL SHED, a passive effect where her shell will occasionally shed. Failure to shed will result in the shell being flimsy and easily broken. She’s covered in thick shell armor, and communicates through burbling noises. She is a bulky and very powerful TCP, with a maximum health of PERFECT. Her current health is GOOD, and she’s feeling ready to go once more.

Marnet loves her new clothing and gear, admiring the shotgun almost lovingly. She feels capable and confident now, and is eager to protect her family.

Her equipment is now RUBBER BAND KNUCKLES and a SHOTGUN (with both bullets and beanbag rounds). The rubber band knuckles allow for pinching still, while increasing Marnet’s damage output due to both the spikes and IDENTITY SYNERGY.

Marnet currently has no inventories, but keeps her ammunition in little cape pockets.

Marnet’s skills are a little lacking, but certainly not bad.
Her basic skills include SPEECH and READING.
She can use SHOTGUNS and KNUCKLE WEAPONS.

Jasper is outfitted with a cape, top and scarf.

Jasper is a PHANTOM TYPE, and as a CREATURE TCP, her ability is PHANTASMIC, allowing them to pass through solid structures and become invisible upon moving at a high speed. They are made of a wispy material, and communicates through whispering. They are not an exceptionally powerful TCP, and have a maximum health of GOOD. Their current health is GOOD, though they feel a bit overwhelmed from being launched into existence.

Jasper’s doing alright, still a bit wary of the other TCPs. Dad is calming them down plenty, but there’s still some hesitance, especially after receiving new weapons. They fidget with their scarf and drift around aimlessly, examining the living room of the house.

Jasper’s equipment is currently a TASER CHAIN. This weapon has IDENTITY SYNERGY with Jasper, and will be able to go incorporeal with them if moving quickly.

Jasper currently has no inventory, and will wear their chain around their neck.

Jasper is taught ARCHITECTURE, STAGE MAGIC, and MUSIC.

Having just been spawned, Jasper’s skills are extremely lacking.

...hmm, we can't heal Primus or Marnet without visiting our allies. We need to solve this problem somehow. I suppose we could create some sort of health transfer machine so that Storage could be used to indirectly heal them? Or instead of a machine, some sort of magic item that heals others using the TCP's health as fuel. Have it be gradual so that it doesn't hurt very much to use and can be used for precise amounts of healing. Like a medigun?

Alternatively we could grow medical herbs or something. Or create a tree that grows healing fruit over time. To prevent exploitation they'd probably only be usable when freshly picked.

Been sitting on this suggestion for a while...

TEACH ALL: Rationality & risk management (because being smart isn't as important as being sane, cautious, and internally-consistent), game theory & utilitarianism (so they can explain why Spit is bad to her TCPs in a way that relies on the absolute minimum number of assumptions about their preexisting values), lateral thinking (because the ability to think outside the box is important when Spit makes the box), basic psychology & psychoanalysis--especially as it relates to stockholm syndrome and the effects of child abuse.

As far as I can tell, TCP health is the only truly limited resource in this game. Given that, we should try and see if we can't find a way to make more of it.
CREATE: bag of health potions
CREATE: electrically-powered TCP healing chamber

We should really be starting from simple power sources like manual labor and spawned batteries and moving our way up towards nuclear stopping once we find something that provides enough energy to satisfy the machine, but I'm not convinced the CREATE interface has enough dexterity to interpret that correctly without my having to type out a massive wall of text explain each step, which I don't want to do, or doing each step one-by-one, which won't play nice with our time limit.

I wouldn't be all that mad if Spit started trying to out-heal and out-infrastructure us, considering it means we get all the vulnerable infrastructure without all the everything getting blown to hell. The nuclear plant also makes a nice distraction for Spit, as we don't lose all that much if it goes down, and a properly constructed nuclear plant is a bitch to take down.

99% of a Nuclear power plant is little more than a giant steam engine. The tricky part comes with the heat source.

A sufficiently sized chunk of radioactive material heats water to make steam which turns a turbine. Because It can become so hot as to vaporize the water before it comes into contact with the material, Neutron absorbing Rods are set up to be inserted into the material to slow it's decay and control it's heat. It gets more complicate too and requires constant monitoring.

Honestly though modern electrical solutions are meant to service entire cities. We have a half a dozen foot tall cat creatures.
Solar panels, windmills, or a river and water wheels should be enough.

If we need serious power we can just create a Geo-Thermal Power Station and a River.
With magic available to dig a hole, all we need do is dump water down it until it reaches a depth where it vaporizes, and then use that steam to power a steam turbine.

Jasper's shaping up to be a classy sort. If we want them to understand morality but not be necessarily bound by it or be able to think around it, able to justify doing bad things sometimes...

How about we TEACH JASPER: PHILOSOPHY? You can have "evil" philosophers but generally anyone who can be called a philosopher at least has some sort of standards of action or motivation or reasoning that they hold themselves to, even if it ends up being kind of a weird one. Basically, it'd give them the tools to come up with their own custom morality. It might also be useful for converting Spit's TCPs, down the road, since she'll probably teach them all sorts of unpleasant things.

Who fucking knows, but it'd be a really fucking stupid to expect her to do something standard and predictable if she has the ability to do something like this.

Some ridiculous gigantic gauntlet; something where the battle is less of a fight between our cats and more of a struggle to not die to like 400 thousand traps.

Everyone puts their weapons aside for now, seeing no point to carrying them around the house.

>CREATE: HEALTH TRANSFER GUN
The gun is lightweight, and will be able to transfer health from one TCP to another. This gun will only be able to transfer one hit point of health at a time, and will not aid in easing pain. No one picks it up yet, unsure who should be in charge of it. Marnet pipes up that they should maybe give it to her, seeing as she may just be the strongest out of all of them- no offense, of course!

>CREATE: HEALING FRUIT TREE, MEDICAL HERBS, HEALTH POTIONS
The alchemy room and garden are outfitted with new plants and some potions, the garden initially bearing FIVE FRUITS and FIVE HERBS. These plants will grow over time, and the healing fruits are only effective when fresh. The medical herbs are more effective when dry.

There are FIVE HEALTH POTIONS to start, and more can be created in the lab only by combining ONE FRESH FRUIT and ONE DRIED HERB each.

There are more seeds for the herbs on the shelf, if needed.

>CREATE: GOD MASKS
5 new masks are created, 4 that you recognize, and one that you don’t.

The WRETCH MASK allows the user to change temporarily into solely their innards, allowing for extra mobility and the ability to change their shape. How much health the user is willing to spend is directly linked to how long this form lasts.
The EASTWOOD MASK allows the user to process poisons and other harmful ingested materials more effectively, with the possibility of getting addicted to said substance and requiring it to keep its overall strength and will to go on.
The MILLER MASK allows the user to manipulate the natural world around it, such as controlling vines and the ground beneath their feet. How much they can control is directly linked to how much health the user is willing to spend.
The SPIT MASK allows the user to inflict more pain with any attacks, but with no added damage. How much health the user is willing to spend is directly linked to how much pain they cause per attack.
The WAX MASK allows the user to pick up on what balance changes and arms race-esque effects creating or giving specific items will do, with no health cost.

>CREATE: NEW ROOM FOR JASPER
A new room is made for Jasper, coming off of the other side of the attic. They don’t seem particularly impressed, but thank you regardless, floating around restlessly.

>CREATE: MESSENGER BAG, PERSONAL CLOTHES
Jasper is given a messenger bag as an INVENTORY. They are also given a poncho and necklace to wear casually, which they tuck away for now.

A trailer is made for the walker, empty aside from a small pile of pillows on one side- likely for a resting area. The back opens up to allow for large objects to be moved inside, and the entire layout can be modified as you wish.

>GIVE SPHINX: SCRATCHING POST, PYRAMID SPHINXHOUSE

The Sphinx is told to watch for threats, and sings praise for its new treats. It sniffs them and decides to settle on top of the trailer instead, in true cat form.

Everyone regroups in the living room.

>TEACH MARNET: CAPTURE, PRISONER CARE, SENSE MOTIVE
>TEACH ALL: RATIONALITY, RISK MANAGEMENT, GAME THEORY, PSYCHOLOGY, PSYCHOANALYSIS (CHILD ABUSE AND STOCKHOLM SYNDROME)


Marnet is hesitant to address her new skills, but thanks you for them anyway.
The others look equally nervous about their new skillsets, particularly about the knowledge of child abuse and Stockholm syndrome. Are we children? Is this going to happen to us- are we going to do this to other people? Primus in particular seems rattled, an unusual state for him- audibly asking if the other TCPs were really going to be that traumatized by their actions if they chose to go violent.

>TEACH JASPER: VOCALS, OPERA, GRACE, WRITING, READING, MORALITY, MORTALITY, HERBOLOGY, PHILOSOPHY, DISTRACTION, SHOWMANSHIP
>GIVE JASPER: MICROPHONE
>TEACH DAD: VOCALS

Jasper reels even more than the rest at the amount of skills coming in at once, especially the concepts of morality and mortality.

They can die, they say aloud. We can all die. They hold their head in their hands, pushing and pulling at their phantasmic skin in a nervous motion. Are we okay with this? Why do we have to die someday? Are we going to die horribly, and in pain?! Everyone shuffles their feet, and Buddy speaks up first.
It says that if they do die, it will be a noble death, even if it hurts. Fighting for the void is scary, but it’s what they were here for and they care about the void, even if their decisions are confusing. Primus pipes up that you know what’s best for them, but nothing seems to reach Jasper. They ask why they have to answer to this god anyway, that they don’t even know you and this is happening, and they’re scared-

Dad goes back into comforting mode, handing over her mask. It’ll help you communicate with our void, she says. They are a kind god, and enjoys giving hugs and comfort to us directly, when we need it. Please trust us. We’re a family now, and we want you to be a part of it. You add that if there’s anything that you can do for them, you’re willing.

They reluctantly take the mask, not yet putting it on. They’ll talk to you later, they say, when they have more of a handle on the situation. Not yet.

Dad goes into damage control mode, getting everyone situated and cozy on the living room floor. She turns to Jasper and helps them onto the couch, and starts singing at a soft volume, Jasper slowly joining in. Dad’s voice is deep but soothing, Jasper’s light whispers complementing it well. You make out the exact lyrics as best you can, listening just as eagerly as the rest.


Dad: Come on and sing this song
Jasper: I’m really not so sure.
Dad: Come on it won’t take long!
Jasper: And this song’s got no alure.

Dad: Come on give it a shot
Jasper: Eh, I’d rather not
Dad: Really, this is great!
Jasper: No, really, it can wait.

Dad: Sure I know it’s fast
Jasper: How longs this gonna last?
Dad: Just put a good foot forwards
Jasper: spoken Wait, you do realize that I don’t have any feet, right?

Dad: Come on, just once, for me?
Jasper: Okay, we’ll see.


Jasper/Dad: It’s been… ten minutes/It’s been… two days
Jasper/Dad: Since I came alive/ Since I came alive
Japser/Dad: I can’t wait to see the strange /And since then so much has changed.
Jasper/Dad: Things I haven’t gotten to / Things I never thought I’d see
Jasper/Dad: Cause I just don’t know / … I will tell you
Jasper/Dad: Where I might end up / where we’re going to.
Jasper/Dad: And now as it all might end / And now as it all might end


Jasper – cutting in: You know, you’d all make decent friends
Dad: See?
Jasper: And this singing thing’s not bad
Dad:Yup
Jasper: Anything to get
Jasper/Dad: me through these next few moments / us through these next few moments

Jasper: Here upon this stage I am met with questions, they’re flooding in my mind with no discretion.
I am born wearing a mask and I learn what life is – only to be told to risk it all in a moment of crisis.
Who will live and who will die, is it even worth the try. To risk the chance and throw it all away?
And in the face of this holy deliverence, is it my role to be cursed with indifference?
To risk your life in glory, or to live without a story. What am I supposed to do?!

Dad: Hey… uh, don’t be so morose.
Jasper: Please I’m already a ghost.
Dad: And sure we might all die
Jasper: You say that like it’s fine.

Dad: Voidsy’s got our back!
Jasper: I’m not sure I can trust.
Dad: cmon, cut them some slack.
Jasper: But I suppose it’s them or bust.

Everyone claps for them, and Jasper does a tiny bow.

You get back to work creating things as they all calm down, a note materializes before you can CREATE a GEOTHERMAL PLANT

Hmm. Probably shouldn't, then. For one thing, creating a geothermal plant could be extension create lava and such underground, where the sanctuary is. Though perhaps having an administrator's particular attention on this game might be helpful? Convince a certain person not to be a cheaty cheater? We could have a kitty put on the Wax mask to see if there are any more particulars to be had about this choice.

Speaking of, it's possible that a TCP would get some type of bonus for using their own creator's mask, less health for greater effect sort of thing. We should distribute those masks to our allies, each their own. As for Spit's mask... well, we don't want to use it, but Spit will probably want it, so it might make good bait. Stow it down in the UnSanctuary and it might tempt her enough to send one of her TCPs down there. We need to explore down there anyway. And give our allies some news, though only after we settle our TCPs down and see to their needs.

I still want to CREATE a HEDGE MAZE, for defense. And because it's cool. With like, statues and sundials and things. Maybe it would have treasure and secrets hidden inside?

A Geothermal plant would be easy to balance... It's only as powerful as the amount of water you give us to use with it.

Can we use the Wax mask to see what kind of effect it would have on the game?

Nope.

Ask the wax mask what would happen if we made a bunch of copies of all our magic stuff (masks, hat, wand, alchemy junk).

You give a hard no on that one, and the note disappears as you say it to yourself. For now, the game will continue as planned.

Your TCPs are calmer now, playing with eachother and babbling amongst themselves. They hug eachother, make jokes, and check out eachothers outfits. Even Jasper relaxes into the family, and an immense feeling of pride fills your chest. Even with everything going on, the resilient little cats find a way to enjoy their lives, no matter how brief it has been.

You could almost forget that they're going to war, and that some of them may not come back in one piece. Spit's laughter resonates in your collective mind and the letter you just received makes you wonder just how much you're being monitored.

You shake your thoughts away, focusing on the now.

The real game was just beginning.

The point of learning about Stockholm syndrome and child abuse is, I think, because Spit is likely to be abusive to its cats, but that doesn't mean they wont necessarily be still loyal to her.
She is, as near as we can tell, horrible to everyone, including those she has made, and you will need to be ready to help those who have suffered under her power, even though they will likely want to fight you for her.
