I look at the first offering: a bright red rose, hanging upside down and swaying gently in the wind. Its cleanly cut stem is tethered to the glass branch above by string. Why is the rose still alive? Was it left by someone recently?

// Occasionally the story will ask the community for explicit creative input. These types decision points are critical and will affect the overall tone of the world and story, and occasionally other mechanics or systems such as the item table. However, they are purely a creative exercise and there is no way to "succeed" or "fail" at them. The decision point in the previous message is the first of this kind.

{i?} I look at the first —

{i} I look up at the glass spire. It twists upward like a root pulled by a massive hand, at least twice my height and shimmering with a cloudy, greenish tint in the starlight. Various offerings to this "tree" dangle from rope and cloth. Three offerings stand out to me.

{i} The note is pinned down by a fishing hook. A charred feather loops around the base of the metal. The note reads: her hand / the fog / my hand

REFLECTION

We jingle the glass beads in our pocket feeling the smooth silicate surfaces worn down by time, intrigued by the new sensations of this "body." A flash of an image, something half-remembered but immediately forgotten, draws us to a note pinned down by a trinket off the path. Intrigued, we leave the path for the nearest glass spire.

CORRUPTION

2022-10-07 18:09:35


{i?} One glass tree is not too far off the path. It’s tall and its canopy casts a shadow, even in the dark sky. Scattered around it are objects of all shapes and sizes. Trinkets, notes, and even totems. I can take a closer look or keep going.

CORRUPTION

2022-10-07 18:07:11


{i} As I descend, I notice glass spires littered around in different shapes and sizes. They are almost treelike. The castle wall grows taller. I’m new to this body — if I can call it that — but am gradually learning and working through how to use it, one uncertain step at a time. Is time a thing here? If it is, it’s passing slowly.

{i} The debris patters gently in my pocket as I make my way down the path. It’s almost an anchor to this world, but I feel it clouding my thoughts with distant half memories.

As we get up, we look around and inspect the bridge. A cool wind whispers to our left, and we take it as a good omen. We start walking towards the path sloping downhill.

REFLECTION

2022-10-07 15:33:47


We pause and kneel on the ground to feel the soil. It is dry pebbles, and glass beads that seem to have been shaped by the sea, or strong winds and sand over time. We raise one of the beads to the sky and see some odd tones. A memory of our past? :: *There is a universe within every living thing* :: We put a handful of pebbles, glass, and sand in our pocket.

{i} To the right, the path slopes downhill. Shocks of glass along the path pierce the sky as if struck by lightning. To the left, the path curves around the edge of the wall. There are footsteps along the path.

{i} I cross the bridge. Sand and glass crunch beneath my feet. The sky is dark and endless, littered with countless stars. The castle looms in the distance. It rises above thick metallic walls. I can just make out a gate ahead of me. It shines for some reason. The path I'm on splits three ways.

{i} I look around. I’m in space, or something like it. How do I even know what space is? This is already starting to hurt my head. There’s a bridge in front me, and at the end of it is a huge castle. I don’t know how I know, but I need to get to that castle. So that’s where I’m going.

CORRUPTION

{i} I look down further, expecting to see my feet. There’s nothing there either. How is this possible? Everything I feel I can’t see or touch. OK, I can figure this out. I take a deep breath and cross my arms I don’t have across my chest made of nothing. I start thinking. And then I *realize* I’m thinking. Okay, so I’m not completely nonexistent. Some part of me is here, just not all of myself. But where is here, and who is myself? Or is it my selves?

CORRUPTION

{i} It feels like I'm waking up for the first time. I look down in front of me expecting to see my hands, but there's nothing there. Are my eyes playing tricks on me? I can feel them right there. In fact, I can feel them everywhere. They’re not just in front of me. They’re behind me, to the right of me. Nearby and far away. Wait a second, just how many hands do I have?

[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) 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?

(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.

💡 [Hunch: This is the beginning of an intermission chapter that will culminate in a permanent decision, but this is not the permanent decision. You will be given notice when that point is reached.]

(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?

(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.

(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.
