RE: Basing tulpa off a character you have strong beliefs about

Either it's a temporary thing, or forums are just dying out. Tulpa.io died a few months ago.

Ask not what your tulpa can do for you, ask what you can do for your tulpa.

Maybe we should create a section just for the soulbounding folks and capture them up here.

I completely agree. There's a Metaphysical section, why not one for Soulbonds?

RE: Basing tulpa off a character you have strong beliefs about

well, most of the time soulbonds vs tulpas is just a difference in origin or belief in meta, as far as I know.. TONS of soulbonds have gotten along in this community with no real friction, sometimes just calling themselves tulpas while here even

they're about the same thing, really (also, we're off topic, sort of)

Hi I'm one of Lumi's tulpas! I like rain and dancing and dancing in the rain and if there's frogs there too that's bonus points.
All of my posts should be read at a hundred miles per hour because that's probably how they were written

Well, technically, if the character kept their backstory, aren't they more of a soulbond?

Yeah, let's keep it on-topic^^. If you want to discuss soulbonds, here's a thread you can necro.

Agreed, characters that come to life accidentally are in a somewhat different situation than tulpas intentionally designed to be pre-existing characters. I think the latter are actually in a better situation than the former. When a soulbonding system first forms, nobody knows what just happened, or why, or what to do about it, or where to turn for support. When someone intentionally makes a tulpa, character-inspired or not, they've probably already encountered a few very useful pieces of information in guides and online communities:

*Making a tulpa is a huge lifechanging commitment on the order of getting married or having a child, maybe greater.

*A tulpa is a person with an independent will and deserves to be granted respect and agency.

*A tulpa will change from their original design and that's okay.

*Whatever problems and weird stuff you encounter along the way, there are people available to provide advice and encouragement.

I can only speak from personal experience as a soulbond. No one in this system has ever made a tulpa or ever will, so there are a lot of creation and vocality discussions we absent ourselves from, possibly more in the future depending on responses to this post. But my responses to your first and second points, Apollo, were not really about soulbonds. I stand by the allegations I made:

*New tulpas are heavily shaped by the expectations and desires of their creators, regardless of whether these expectations are inspired by a pre-existing character. They can't start choosing their own personality until they are far enough along to already have one they didn't choose, which then will be the primary influence on what they choose.

*Successful tulpamancers tend to be dedicated to the point of obsession. Trauma, mental and physical illness, and the vicissitudes of life may pull them away from their tulpas, but disappointment with who the tulpa turns out to be does not.

Apollo, you've been very outspoken against basing tulpas on characters for a while now, across various threads and in your guide. I think I have a clear understanding of what you believe. But how did you come to believe as you do? In-system experience? Out-system experience? Or as a matter of philosophy and ethics, as you usually present it?
