Wonderland looks super nifty!

What are you interested in doing with Threefold?

Thanks! I'm having fun with the thread. If you (or anyone else) feel like dropping a character in Wonderland, please let me know. The more the merrier!

What are you interested in doing with Threefold?

Uh...I'm not sure exactly. I know what approximately what my characters are doing in that setting (Z is trying to achieve godhood, Cat is caught up in it, etc) but I'm not sure how other people's characters would fit in. I feel like Raven would get on well with Korovai, though.

Some potential options:
  • The same group of characters leading the resistance in Wonderland (Spider, Darcy, Raven, potentially Merlin and Cat) are involved in a resistance movement in Threefold, which brings them to the attention of Korva/Siurek/Nirue/all of the above.
  • Z is trying to achieve godhood. (Character X) is a mage of the type they need. Kidnapping/coercion ensues.
  • Drake is on a quest for revenge against Siurek/Nirue/both. (Optionally: someone else's characters get dragged in to help?)
  • Nirue has a new toy. It's a Cat, because Cat is a trouble magnet of the highest order. (Becoming Korovai's present: optional.)

Wonderland looks intriguing, I might be interested in sending someone down the rabbit hole. What did you want to do in Eclipse?

Oooh, excellent. Edie? Emily? Both? Someone else? (PM me or catch me on IRC?)

What did you want to do in Eclipse?

Not a clue! A bunch of my characters are all around the same age, so it might be fun to have them eclipse, or start mage school, along with someone else's set? It would be Raven, Cat, Katherine, and...maybe Darcy, maybe not.

Wonderland now has a setting document! The first section is non-spoilery. The beginning of the spoilers section (when it exists) will be clearly marked; read beyond at your own risk.

Raven has made an appearance in Wonderland!

Setting document has been updated and now contains actual spoilers, grouped in 2 levels of classification.

I've been struggling to explain Z, and I finally managed a halfway-decent rendition, so I'm putting it here mostly so I don't lose it.

Standard Z is raised by highly religious parents (default is Protestant) (or possibly Catholic but then encounters Protestantism? idk). Anyway, point is he's heavily invested in the Christian concepts of morality, sin, punishment after death, etc.

At some unspecified point before he hits 30, he comes to the conclusion that he is A Sinner. The exact reason varies from world to world. (Canon version: he's a mage, which at the time he lived was still heresy.) This, because Protestantism is heavy on the concept of predestination, and de-emphasises the Catholic practices of confession and penance, leads him to the conclusion that now, no matter what he does, he's going to Hell when he dies.

Because he's a glowfic character, his solution to this (aside from sometimes-depending-on-the-instance abandoning conventional morality) is to attempt immortality. This leads to the Z we all know and (don't) love, who commonly appears in my various universes midway through an attempt to find/perfect a personal mortality cure.

More about Z! This time, "What Z Would Do With Wishcoins", inspired by Discord/IRC.

[4:49 PM] Kaylin: Step 1: discover wishcoins, mint self, decide wishcoins are evil
[4:50 PM] Kaylin: (in that order)
[4:50 PM] BOTStarbridge★: <timepoof> ...
[4:50 PM] Guilty: omg, Z
[4:50 PM] Kaylin: this is his entire thing, is acquiring magic which he believes to be sinful/evil
[4:50 PM] Kaylin: Step 2: self-assign mission of preventing abuse of magic
[4:51 PM] Kaylin: Step 3: collect all the wishcoins in the world
[4:51 PM] Kaylin: Step 4: find out ingots are a thing, probably by wishing on a magic detection power of some kind, and hatch a plan to kill all of them/remove their magic
[4:52 PM] Kaylin: Step 5: once ingots are defeated, collect all the wishcoins again and make it so no more can be produced
[4:53 PM] Kaylin: Step 6: use remaining wishcoins to fix other miscellaneous Things That Are Wrong With The World
[4:53 PM] dilnu: but ingots are born...
[4:53 PM] Guilty: that is a potential flaw in his plan
[4:53 PM] Kaylin: Step 4.5: wish for no more ingots to be born
[4:53 PM] Kaylin: (probably an evil?)
[4:53 PM] dilnu: are we sure Z doesn't get killed by wishing on a Star the first time?
[4:54 PM] Kaylin: this is the other flaw in his plan
[4:54 PM] BOTStarbridge★: <timepoof> I don't think you can mess with ingotry via wishcoins
[4:54 PM] Kaylin: Probably not, no, but that won't stop him trying
[4:54 PM] Kaylin: Step 7: wish for wishing on wishcoins to never work again.
[4:55 PM] dilnu: I was never quite clear on that
[4:55 PM] BOTStarbridge★: <timepoof> what, according to Z, is wrong with the world?
[4:55 PM] Guilty: everything probably?
[4:55 PM] Guilty: wishcoins?
[4:55 PM] dilnu: like we never see them trying to contest ingot powers after they get evils
[4:55 PM] BOTStarbridge★: <timepoof> yeah
[4:55 PM] Kaylin: hmmm, I'm not actually sure exactly what would be on his list
[4:56 PM] Kaylin: He'd probably wish himself immortal, he does that.
[4:56 PM] Kaylin: (maybe this is the first thing he uses a star for, and it goes wrong in some entertaining/"beautiful" fashion)
