big fancy disthread because we've hit the point where we have multiple morbit quests both here AND on other sites, such as eagletime and omegaupdate.

what started as a passion project between myself and my friend como to create a universe snowballed into a huge deal with multiple projects and a proper team behind it. this thread is for talking about both the universe as a whole, and our current running quests- here, that'd be Maybequest and Tiny Cat People.

discuss away, and feel free to ask all the weird questions you want. we love this shit.

What could we create that would be useful to Voidsy but not Spit or Wax? Remember, autobalance is in effect.
No. 125583 ID: ab8afd

Using the creation function may not necessarily be the only way the void can be used. The way motifs seems to work is that a god is pretty much physically "made of" them, their substance or essence or so on, and they control their motif like an extension of their body, by will and with effort. But, if an example of their motif already contained a supply of power or potential or energy or so on, it seems plausible that when that god connects to it in the way they do to manipulate it, they could draw on that. The game's void seems to be emptiness in its aspect as unformed, blank-canvas potentiality, so theoretically perhaps it is, for Voidsy, just such a thing?

Aside from that, simply using the create function actually could potentially give Voidsy something of advantage without giving anything useable to the other players. Off the bat I'd see two possibilities for that:
1) Voidsy creates nothing. That is, they create a form of nothingness that is in some way advantageous to them, most likely because they could manipulate that resultant nothingness and the other players can't. You'd need to be pretty clever to think of a way this could be applied but it might be possible. For example, Spit seems to derive pleasure from sadism, which no-one else in the game really does. Void could create an absence of that, a sort of exclusion zone in which that feeling doesn't exist. Then whenever Spit pokes her head into that space, which one assumes all gods need to do while interacting with the game, she's subjected to an effect under which she's incapable of feeling any pleasure from the suffering she sees or inflicts. The other players already don't get that so the absence zone effect has no impact on them.
2) Voidsy creates something that the other players already have, so the autobalance doesn't provide them with anything. The example I think of is whatever passage, door or conduit through which they can reach into the game space from morbit. If the knife is any threat to them, they have to be able to put at least part of themselves into the space it's in, right? So there must be some sort of hole between morbit and the game's godspace that can be opened up and reached through. Voidsy, with a motif for empty space (which may easily include holes, doors, passageways and etc.) may be able to create the same thing from the other side. And since they are doing it from the other side, perhaps they can choose where the other end opens to, probably within limits but the most likely possibility being to the vicinity of one of their fellow players. So, for example, Voidsy could create a hole leading to Spit, and reach through to punch her in her dumb face. Or steal her face. Or pull her in so that she gets trapped in the gamespace. Or do some other cheatery thing.
No. 125588 ID: b1b4f3

I don't think Voidsy has any confirmed motifs aside from Masks.
No. 125590 ID: ab8afd

>WAX: generally, at a lesser god level, you can manipulate existing objects and elements that fit your motifs. so, for you...hm, what are yours?
>VOIDSY: Masks, we think. Not sure about a second one.
>WAX: I’d say space, or void, judging from your appearance...they’re based on your form, so you don’t exactly get as much control over picking those as domains. you have to work with what you get.
>WAX: but, hard for me to say, really. don’t go nuts with it, seeing as space is well...it could get messy. we don’t know much about it ourselves, and I’d say masks are a much safer option.

>Bags of holding are created for each of your TCPs, able to hold any amount of things, as long as they fit in/out of the bags’ openings. Your space motif gives them an extra bonus: the space within the bags is shared by all of them, allowing for any TCP to pull from their contents, from any location, again, as long as it fits. Taking an item from the bag will cost health, but putting them in will not.

Recent thoughts: Combining the Identity domain with the Masks and Space motif, and possibly the Discord domain as well, might mean Voidsy is theoretically really good at stealth stuff? If you phrase stealth as "creating a false impression of nothing", it lines up well.

All considered together, Voidsy has a really strong inclination towards being a god of thieves. Assassins, too, if you wanted to take it in a darker direction. This makes their antagonism with Spit very interesting, as Spit is god of Violence. Her other domain is Vices, which commonly cause and are caused by Violence. Comparing her to Voidsy, Voidsy is god of Discord and Identity, which can cause Discord or come into being as a result of it. If you look at it from the right angle, in a way they're both gods of the same thing - strife and conflict, the things that cause it and the things that come from it. In a way, Voidsy's central theme is just a broader, less visceral and less directly negative take on Spit's theme.

The way their motifs can be drawn out from their domains is very interesting as well. Spit's motifs, Smoke and Meat, can be read as the aftermaths of violence, but also as the targets of vices. Their relationship to her domains implies a sense of destruction and consumption. Voidsy's motifs, on the other hand, Masks and (empty) Space, when related to their domains seem to raise a question - is there really anything beneath them? Is identity an illusion, are conflicts meaningful, are chaos and order just a mask worn or removed? There is a deeply implied sense of hollowness in the relationship between Voidsy's motifs and domains. Which, in a way, is something very similar to the situation with Spit. The connection between Spit's domains and motifs implies a sense of the kind of hollowness that can be found in devastation, with an undertone of horrible hunger, while the connection between Voidsy's domains and motifs implies the kind of hollowness that suggests there was nothing there to begin with, with overtones of denial and disguise driven by an existentialist terror or despair.

So, there's sort of a connection there. If there was a similar connection between other gods, of different things, it might possibly result in a natural affinity or sense of something similar to a family relationship, but with a pair of gods of violence and discord the result is that they double up to really hate each other. Like, there might be a subconscious sense for each of them, when they look at each other, that they're seeing a wrong, twisted reflection of something in themselves.

There's the new one that's just started, its going well.
Speaking of, if one person makes multiple posts with suggestions in them, not just discussion, are you going to accept all of them Duke or just the first post they make? Because most quests have a "one suggestion post per person" kind of rule to help keep down clutter, so I'm curious if you'll be doing that or not.

If there`s another session it might be better to keep the two separate from one another. I still suspect that some people from here were trying to sabotage the Frog-Crimes session, since it went even further into insanity after it was linked here.

I can't stop people from making doubleposts. Honestly, I'm not gonna take much of a stance short of "please try to make fewer larger posts". There's no editing function right, so I'd feel it unfair to leave fridge thoughts un-posted. I don't see it as a big problem right now but it might be later? Just a general guideline of "dont make 5 posts in a row, I'll probably forgive you for coming back a few hours later with new thoughts but not 5 in a row".

Also yeah I'll take any suggestion. I'm not gonna turn down something I'd think would work because the person posting its netiquitte was in poor form.

In the prealpha thread, are we deciding on motifs, appearance, name, and domains all at the same time?

I don't suppose we could get an explanation for how domains work? If not, maybe a refresher on motifs? I think those were explained at least...
No. 125898 ID: 53b212

y'all are picking whatever you want to now (name, design, motifs, domains), name CAN come after

good a time as any to have this talk, SO:

domains are straightforward, but not exactly like how domains work for our gods here on earth. a god of time does not control time itself, and multiple gods can share domains. a domain simply says what aspects a god Has powers related to, versus complete embodiment and control. on top of that, the kinds of powers a god has relates to their tier in the cosmic hierarchy.

lesser gods have passive powers relating to their domains, typically also relating to their bodies. eastwood’s crystals are highly addictive to ingest due to his impulse domain, and his smoke is a depressive substance due to his depression domain. miller’s flowers evoke nostalgia, and so on.

greater gods have passive And active powers relating to their domains. rein, being the god of patience and control, has the passive ability of making people in its presence more calm and willing to listen to it, with an active ability of being able to increase this effect while using its voice. spit on the other hand, being the god of violence and vices, has the passive ability of getting stronger in the face of violence (against her or otherwise), and the active ability of causing a person to give into their basic impulses (generally whatever they’re thinking about at the time) with her own voice. active abilities take up strength and energy to use.

high gods have passive and active powers but at an incredibly capable level. wax, having the fear and imagination domains, has passive shapeshifting. this shapeshifting is Not controllable by wax, and happens during emotional distress- taking the appearance of a TCP type based on the person speaking to him's worst fear (or his own, if alone). one of his active abilities is to induce fear, the worst fear a person has ever felt, at will with his voice. all things considered, these are actually pretty weak high god powers, and some have much, much scarier abilities- pretty much all of which are spoilers!

motifs are as the name suggests, design motifs. they directly correlate to the god's form- in some way, a motif must be related to a god's physical appearance. these motifs may be visible or hidden, but they Must be there. if you pick motifs, they will have to be incorporated in the visual design of the god- so pick carefully!

a motif is something a god can control more directly- but it must be a physical element, no abstract concepts- it has to be part of the visual design, after all. (not that we couldn't make that work, but anyway) motif control is similar to elemental bending, but with whatever material the motif is- for instance, spit’s meat motif allows her to twist peoples’ flesh, while eastwood’s crystal motif allows him to move and change his body’s crystals however he wants. this is also tiered, though the tiers themselves are a bit more nebulous.

lesser gods can work with existing motif materials, greater gods can create their own, while high gods can create them in excess. gods are not bound to these tiers- a powerful lesser god (see: eastwood) can use motifs on a greater god level, while a weak greater god (wretch) is bound to lesser god limits, and so on.

gods can have as many domains and motifs as they want, but it's generally recommend you go for 2 each. the more motifs/domains you have, the weaker they are- while a single motif/domain may make your skillset overly specific, and lead to less versatility. 2 is the golden number!

neither domains or motifs have any bearing on a god's personality, morals, and character. it's worth noting that the person a god is entirely independent of any of these things, and two gods with the same domains and motifs will be entirely different people, with different powers and appearances as well.

also congrats you’re not even a lesser god yet, this shit’s mostly just to set up your god’s form, figure out possible powers if they become physical, as well as determine synergy bonuses within the game.

have fun!

*distant honking intensifies*

The whole clown thing inspired me to draw Voidsy in some sort of clownish outfit, and for the pose I thought hey, Voidsy's ring and masks looks like they're juggling sometimes! Let's do that! But they needed more things to be throwing around, so why not add in some of these little clown wizards we've been talking about?

Originally I drew little gnome-like human clown wizards, but they didn't look great and I thought, eh, that doesn't seem like it fits well with the world we have, anyway. So I made this race of little fuzzy mousey people. Then I thought far too much about them and came up with a whole little society and culture for them, but I don't know if anyone wants me to clog their browser typing it up. Anyone interested?

This is great, but i think they should have some kinds of weapons they can use. While they may not like using them, if they only have escape as their only option, they are eventually going to get captured and slaughtered by Spit.

I'd suggest
-Deathsticks(the baton thingies-look them up)
-card shurikens
-colorful confetti frags
-gaudy colored teargas
-juggling clubs
-fireblower flamethrower using juggling torch
-magic disco laser ball spell(based on warframe mirage)

I want to stress that i am not suggesting they should use these very often or become militarized. These would only be used if they get caught in a corner.
No. 126119 ID: 2202fb


Deleted my prior post once i saw you did in fact address juggalos in your writeup.

I think the killing penalties are kind of extreme, however. While i can definitely get behind it being an extreme and unthinkable taboo, i think it should stay at regular emotional repercussions but amplified rather than death and/or silence. Additionally, i also think the juggalo "transformation" should be nixed and instead replaced with a proposal outlined as thus:

Much like real people, wizits can snap under extreme emotional strife. Coupled with the heightened emotional backlash of killing something, means that wizits are much more likely to snap once they take someone's life than regular people (of note, killing isnt the only way for a wizit to snap and even then, it is situational and based on many factors such as the circumstances of the killing, the intentions, and the individual's emotional strength). Once a wizit snaps, that is when the originally outlined physical transition would occur. In addition to the shift in appearance, they would also radically shift towards the chaotic and/or evil ends of the alignment spectrum and begin using much more traditional weapons (including, but not limited to: cleavers, bats, chainsaws, and teeth). The end result being anywhere from depressed juggalo to killer clown (or if shit really hits the fan, Gamzee in a bloodrage).

Ofc, due to the infancy of the species coupled with their inhibitions on murder, these individuals are very very few in number. If a wizit is forced to defend themself, they try to do so non-lethally, and only insofar as to allow them to escape.
No. 126122 ID: 5247b0

It was mimes that part of the write-up was hinting at. Also, the whole thing of killer clowns was avoided deliberately, since scary killer clowns is kind of overdone and implied to already be in place as a different thing on morbit. Wizits would make pretty terrible killer clowns anyway, since they're small enough to sit in your hand.
No. 126123 ID: eb2fe2

No. 126130 ID: 2202fb

Guess i missed the size part (and so did mortis, it seems).
I see my proposed transformation not as just an excuse to have killer clowns. Instead, it is more of a manic depressive dynamic. One should sympathize with these individuals and not just see them as monsters to be cut down.
No. 126131 ID: 5247b0

TCPs are also very small. Wizits appear normal-sized in TCP because Tiny Cat People are Tiny. If a normal human appeared in the quest they would be a giant.

I don't see how someone being more likely to act in a monstrous way would make them less likely to be seen as monsters. I get that people subject to violent impulses should be sympathized with, of course, but once again, violence and clowns as a combination seems done. The more subtle fear factor of meeting some sad toy-sized black and white crying-makeup harlequin and realizing that they have killed another person, managed to survive something that kills the majority of those who experience it, and may possibly now have the ability to create any object they want in invisible form on top of never making a sound... seemed like it would be spookier. But that's probably subjective.

A completely overpowered interpretation of that is "the ability to turn objects into TCPs of a type based on the object".

This sounds more reasonable. Not a bad power actually, since it's essentially like putting off the choice of type until later, when you might need something specific. Alternatively when playing as a newly-born god you could pick that for your first TCP and change the type later when you have your motifs set up, for better synergy.

File 154190317165.png - (14.02KB , 463x310 , growth chart.png )

I just had a few ideas for Wizit growth and childhood.
They have children in litters of 3-7, litters of 7 being as uncommon as twins are for humans.
They lay cube shaped eggs which hatch after about one day, give or take.
Wizit children aren't classified as Buffons, Jesters, or Harlequins, rather, they choose which class they want to be at around 6 days old. Before this, they are known simply as Jacks.
Their skill in jokes and magic vary by age, but most Jacks prefer jokes which consist of them hiding somewhere small (such as a cubby or a fridge) waiting for someone to walk by or open said thing, and jumping out at them making loud honking noises. They are often found fast asleep in drawers.
Their noses never change in size, much like eyes for humans, so younger Jack's noses often take up their entire face. They also hatch hairless, so a full clown afro is seen as a sign of adulthood. Their magic stored in their tails have only one charge at 1-4 days old, and a mere 2 charges at 5 days old, so they rely more on their physical capabilities than their magical ones.
Wizits raise their children as a pack, rather than just the parents raising their Jacks.
1 day old Jacks are like toddlers, and are very carefully watched over, not allowed out of the camp, out of sight of adults, etc. 3 day old Jacks are given free roam of the camp, but are still carefully watched by those around. 5 day old Jacks are allowed short excursions out of camp, and aren't watched as carefully, but still aren't ready to be on their own yet. 7 days old are seen as grown and are no longer watched.
Once they've chosen their class and turn a week old, they throw their first solo performance for their (pack? clan? whatever it's called), which is met with rampant applause no matter how unfunny it may be. They get constructive criticism and cupcakes afterward.
While different Wizits grow to be different sizes, this height chart should highlight how tall they are at each age in comparison to their final height.
No. 126440 ID: 864e49

This is all clever and cute but
>cube shaped eggs
Fucking ow!
No. 126442 ID: b5952d

Cube shaped eggs seem... far, far less than optimal. And growing over a few days seems much too fast. No-one will have time to interact with cute babies! Making it months instead would line up with how long it takes similarly sized creatures to grow to full size.

Of course, if morbit follows our rules for mental development, even just learning a language would take a few years. Anything you'd call mental or emotional maturity would take even longer. Also wizits are of course partly based on wizards, so I'd have leaned more toward them being long-lived and slower to grow, myself.
No. 126443 ID: a05a9e

That's just how long humans take to learn language and other things, given Wizits are an entirely different kind of creature they may have brains that are structured in such a way that talking and understanding is instinctual, or they may have much higher learning capacity
No. 126444 ID: 56de26

I was going for a Jack-in-the-box theme, but I can see how that'd be highly impractical/painful. Might need to scratch that.
I think the quick growth of the Wizits is completely necessary though, seeing the situation they're in. If they were in Morbit I would be all for a longer childhood, but as it stands, they don't have the time for right now. Thing's are going to get hectic soon, and the last thing we need are kids for Spit to abuse. The sooner they can grow up the better.
No. 126445 ID: b5952d

I think the wizits in the game are probably smart enough to just not have kids yet. They're not dumb, so why would they not see the same problem you can? There's nothing to say they're going to just go ahead popping out babies right away. Even if they did, the ideas so far have pointed them towards being illusionists and tricksters, so even if they were foolish enough to start having kids when they aren't sure about their futures, and if they even get their gestation done before the game is over, they'd probably be pretty good at hiding them.

I think if you did that, there'd have to be downsides to compensate. Like, they wouldn't be able to learn any other languages, or the too-quick learning would make their personalities unstable and unpredictable. Or if you made them magically knowledgeable then other magic could mess with that, or so on.
No. 126446 ID: 56de26

I wasn't implying that the Wizits would have kids willy nilly without a second thought. I was just saying if they were to have kids, we don't really have the time in-game to give them a longer childhood. We want as many Wizits as possible to create ample chaos, and seeing as we can't create too many without the specices/tech level rising, we'll need to rely on the Wizits for that.
No. 126447 ID: b5952d

We don't even know exactly how many we created, yet. We could have an ample amount already. I don't think we're exactly going to get on the wizits' good side by pushing them into having as many kids as possible, either. Remember, they're neutral! They're not on anyone's side, we just let loose chaos on everyone equally to offset Spit and Wax's experience and probably-better-at-planning advantages. Nothing says the wizits have to like us or do what we say. If they had the ability to have a bunch of kids quick, so what? Why would they? Even if they felt like being parents, they'd probably want time to get to know and like their babydaddies/mommas beforehand, and that could take months or years. We don't have any control over them.

So it'd be better not to muck around and give them a maturity cycle more suited to when the game's over.

No. 126968 ID: b1b4f3

That's weird, Bucket's face was different in person, and they weren't wearing the collar. I'm guessing that's an old photo and Bucket was able to change their appearance somehow.
Does that style of collar mean something? Maybe demons usually wear it, as a symbol of servitude. The only other demon we've seen as far as I can remember is Eastwood, who doesn't have a neck to wear one. Bucket took theirs off because of the conflict between them and Rein that we don't know the details about yet. Either they got sick of the conflict between Rein and Spit, or decided Rein wasn't handling the situation properly and left to take action against Spit in their own way. Perhaps by joining Grind's faction? That would explain why the letters and packages were apparently being intercepted and edited by Rein's people.

Another question that comes to mind is... how do they convince Spit to allow Chelsea to leave and recuperate in what is apparently Rein's territory? I kindof want to know how exactly Rein is "rehabilitating" Spit, and if it's actually working or if Spit is simply learning how to hide her worst offenses from Rein and Wax. Worst case scenario is that they're working together, but I feel like Wax should have found out by now. Heh, I guess they still could be and Wax has some long-term plan to take both of them out.
Honestly the most incriminating thing about Rein is that it apparently hasn't told anyone how it's winning against Spit in the TCP games.

just a heads up: my hydrocephalus is rearing up Extremely badly and i'll very possibly end up waiting a few months to get my shunt adjusted (which is to say my treatment on track again), so as much as i want to maintain a consistent update/work schedule, i might not be able to.

i have so many stories to tell and so many worlds to show you, and i want to make it all happen as best as i can, but this is kind of the worst it's been in a while and i'm not going to sugarcoat that. i'm going to try and get in with a doctor ASAP, but right now its a wait.

thank you all for sticking with me, and supporting me despite all of the delays and sudden changes.

i'll do my best.

I’ve been thinking about something. Voidsy’s face on their main body is also a mask, right? Well what’s behind that mask if Voidsy removes it?

Then I thought about how Voidsy’s face could be something that’s absolutely terrifying to look at and whenever they speak, their voice is a very deep demonic sounding voice. Then when Voidsy puts their face back on, they go back to their normal voice.

These thoughts came to me when I was thinking on what we’d do if a very pissed off Spit came looking for us after we win the game and we get to exist with a real body. I doubt any of what I said would actually end up happening, but if it did, then we could scare Spit so badly that she ends up leaving us alone!

But those are just my random thoughts. I wouldn’t blame anyone for thinking this all sounds really dumb.
No. 127500 ID: b1b4f3

Nah there should just be nothing behind it, and Voidsy only ever speaks from the mask. It is their face.
No. 127501 ID: a9af05

As interesting as it would be to deal with Spit like that, I agree with what >>127500 said about what Voidsy should look like.
No. 127504 ID: 05dadb

I prefer the idea presented back with >>123790 that nobody knows what's under Voidsy's mask, not even them, and that Voidsy is actually afraid to even know one way or the other. Like, with the intersection between their domains and motifs, the idea of it being a question with no answer, or a possibly question that never gets answered, is more compelling than any actual answer could be? Or even that the question not having an answer is actually an essential aspect of what they are, and any attempt to find out would actually be a kind of terrible personal violation or violence. Like, the uncertainty itself is actually a fundamental part of them.

I mean, looking at what they physically are, they're a mask - an identity - being worn by emptiness. To have an identity is to be something (to someone), but nothing can't be something and something can't be nothing. Hence, the discord aspect. Voidsy is a walking contradiction, a living question. Which, potentially, is symbolic of questions about how real any "identity" people have or take on is. Does that question need to be answered, or is the state of uncertainty more important and more valuable than any of the possible answers to that question? Maybe there's something about it that is real and alive, but only stays that way if you don't look too closely. So maybe if anyone actually found out what was under Voidsy's mask, something terrible would happen. What exactly, and terrible for who? Who knows. Maybe you shouldn't ask. If I was Voidsy, I'd be afraid to let anyone find out.

I don't think there's much of anything Voidsy could pull off that would scare Spit, but if I was trying to figure some sort of spook face for Voidsy, I'd play up the scary aspect of the emptiness concept. Their face goes totally still and obviously fake and inanimate, and their eyes and their body go absolute light-eating gaze-into-the-heat-death-of-the-universe vantablack.
No. 127515 ID: 91ee5f

It sounds like you’re saying Voidsy is hiding behind a fake identity and would rather have everyone like their fake identity because they’re afraid that their real identity is so boring, no one would want to be their friend.

Which honestly sounds very depressing.

No. 127533 ID: 10c408

I agree with this. it'd fit with voidsy's motif and theme if there is just a blank space behind his mask.

or alternatively, just a head shape behind the mask that's featureless save for the star-filled 'skin' that makes up the rest of it's appearance.
No. 127534 ID: 53b212

i'm here to be horribly disappointing and say that the only real detail i have about voidsy's face is that i picked a plastic kitty face in reference to those good ol 80's-90's plushes

i put a lot of detail in my shit but honestly i just wanted them to be cute, and my own views on identity and what that means for voidsy/as a whole seem to be pretty different than what's discussed here (not that that's a bad thing! just different takes as the writer vs the audience)

it's interesting to see, though
