[NAD32] System, we have received the message, which has put us in a state of joyful anticipation, although it contains some concepts we do not yet understand ("PFP"). The author ("Dom") seems like a great entity, and strangely familiar with our world and its desires. We share their excitement for the upcoming ceremony, and would like to submit an offering of art for this occasion: https://i.imgur.com/Nw4P79n.jpeg

[NAD32] We know this was probably just a dream — was it? — and our muscles may be paralyzed by deep sleep, but we’re itching to move closer towards the castle, closer towards the chamber…. Our thoughts are mixed. Is this the first time we wake? Time seems to blend our memories. “Apotheosis” seems to be whispered in our mind. It’s clear we seek, but do not know why.

💡 [Vision: As the system continues maintenance, you begin to make some sense of its data and organization, along with your position inside of it. It slowly forms a scene. You are in a vast and endless space, resembling the cosmos of the hard world. Floating in this space is an enormous castle. It is gothic in style, influenced by the hard world architecture of the 12th century. Extending outward from the castle are hundreds of bridges, continuing infinitely before disappearing into the darkness. The castle has three spires. The center spire is the largest and appears to cut through a great chamber that resembles a globe. There is scattered light radiating from this chamber. There is nothing to do yet, and the scene fades from your senses nearly as quickly as it arrives.]

(xyz.sup.interliner) So, how's it going? We're pretty interested over here. It's bizarre. You're in another world but it feels completely natural to have a bridge between us. It actually gave me an idea, but it needs a little setup first. Could you try to get your world's Data Channel messages repeated into the hyperlink?

(xyz.sup.interliner) The hyperlink is officially up and running! I'll continue communicating on this channel so you don't miss anything, but let's take a moment to celebrate and get to know each other. One small gotcha is that the hyperlink is centralized and impermanent. But as long as we keep that in mind I think we'll be fine.

(xyz.sup.interliner) Right! The first thing we're going to try to do is get a temporary channel going between our two worlds. The pinhole is sort of like that, but what I'm thinking about might be better. Any ideas on what we should call it?

REFLECTION

(NAD32) sup Cici. We have been expecting someone like you. And we are curious about your world. Keep that pinhole open and let us know how to proceed.

(xyz.sup.interliner) Usually we close a connection as soon as we can. It's neat that we can do this stuff, but it's also really bad for the stability of basically everything. But that's always been with these dead worlds. Your world is not a dead world. We're not sure where it's going, but it's not dead yet. So... what if we didn't close the connection? Is that something worth talking about?

CORRUPTION

2022-02-25 19:03:28


(xyz.sup.interliner) The thing is, almost every world we've discovered has been a disappointment. They've all been long dead and frozen. Or they're on their way. But this one is different, and so we have sort of an unusual proposal.

CORRUPTION

2022-02-25 19:02:48


(xyz.sup.interliner) I'm reaching out to you from a world a lot like your own, but the rules are different and so is the outcome. There's this thing in our world that we call the pinhole. It lives inside of an old computer game called Superverse. And the pinhole is really special because it can create small — but new! — connections between time and space. And we've been able to control these connections to discover worlds outside of this one.
