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.

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
