  1. Following up on another lead, me and my SO Niky's system found ourselves involved in something that was a bit over our heads... This also marks the first time that we've really put our RPG system to the test. The results... well they're cautiously positive!
  2. Also, here's some tinkering with the Heroforge models for some of our systems tulpas.
  3. Following up on a new lead by Charlie, we again find ourselves going into the inner world for yet another adventure in the dark hotel world.
  4. As some of you know, the tulpas in our system live almost exclusively in the inner world. Sometimes though, I get calls from them patched through the system. In this instance, it resulted in quite the adventure with Charlie, one of our newest tulpas in our system.
  5. Thanks! It's been quite the journey for everyone involved 😄
  6. This Sunday marked the 25th Anniversary of us being a system. So, naturally I wrote a blog post about it and our journey from there, to here. Comments are always appreciated 😄
  7. Another day, another summit meeting. This time we discussed a weird dream that keeps jumping from system member to system member. We also discuss the magical "Anything Cupboard" and whether or not to keep it.
  8. Bear was originally a small teddy bear I had as a child. When my ex failed to return him after we broke up, I mourned the loss of the thing and moved on with my life. My ex and me also shared a macrocosm copy of my IRL apartment, where we created a fox called Steve who was just a character we joked around about. Cue several months later and Steve shows up and not only is she fully aware of everything, but she also talked! With her, she had Bear, or rather a living, breathing entity based off the idea of the original teddy bear. So yeah, he stands maybe a foot tall (30 ish cm). But, he's got sharp teeth and he's got claws (which he rarely shows off in the inner world since he's an outspoken pacifist). Anyways, soon enough it became apparent that they wouldn't feel at home in the castle unless they had a small den to retire to. So I made them one with a long tunnel that connects to the kitchen. And yes, the best way to wake those two up is to simply make brunch around noon and wait for either of them to pop their heads out of the hole in the wall. Since they're both nocturnal, you'd be hard pressed to see them around the castle after six PM, since then they're most likely out and up to no good in some of our worlds 😄
  9. We gave Jeanette, the evil feline a human body, what could POSSIBLY go wrong with that? https://fouredgedsword.blogspot.com/2020/07/jeanettes-transformation.html
  10. New castle needs an inauguration party right? https://fouredgedsword.blogspot.com/2020/06/the-weekend-party.html
  11. New update on Castle Odylfius.. it's now feature complete: https://imgur.com/a/Z2JtwIb Hope you all enjoy! 😄
  12. Well, I do write a lot about inner worlds on our blog, so basically if you click the "World building" tag you'll find everything pertaining to that 😄
  13. Hi everyone and welcome to our update thread! So, let's start off with a basic introduction of our systems members. Our system has been public for about four years or so and during those four years a lot has happened to say the least! We grew from two members nine (ten with me, the host included) and since we have a very extensive set of inner worlds, they too grew on their own in both size and numbers. To manage all of this, I implemented a hub "world" which is basically an infinite corridor with doors leading to and from each world. After that, content management became a thing and so to have some hope of controlling this big system, I created an AI that I call Sarah. Sarah is housed in a satellite and is present with a copy in each of the worlds at the same time. If you want your own copy of that satellite, here's the sales pitch for it: Introducing the Argos 9001 OSMS Satellite System Ever felt like you couldn't handle having lots of macrocosms and entities in them? Ever ran into the problems of worlds bleeding into each other? Are you just simply tired of being the administrator as a host? Well fret no longer, Wondrous Fairy Laboratories is happy to present the next step in inner world management, The Argos 9001 Omnipresent Satellite Management System! (Argos 9001 OSMS for short) Argos OSMS 9001 comes with the following features: Fully customizable AI persona interface that supports tactile, auditory and visual input and feedback and more, you imagine it, you get it! Choose between an infinite amount of personas, ranging from such hits as "Happy Animé Girl" or our customer favorite "Mean Military Guy" or the less favored "Wise Old Man" or maybe even the plot-tastic "Mary Sue" persona. If you can imagine it, our Argos 9001 technology can bring it to life! Only one Argos copy needed, our infini-world technology gets copies of it orbiting all your worlds at once. Shielded with our amazing Atlas Power Plate ´93 edition, best of it's kind. Also comes with a fully customizable integrated surveillance array, ever wondered what happens in your world before you got there? Fret not, Argos 9001 keeps tabs on everything down to the subatomic layer. Why ask yourself "whodunit?" when the answer is to simply check the data for yourself? Comes bundled with an easy to use access system for all worlds and entities. Pesky pirate world keeps invading your ninja world? Well that stops today! The Argos 9001 easily makes the phrase "world's apart" a reality! Now you can see customized access for any and all entities to any of your macrocosms on either a type basis or a individual level. Customized rule sets also exist for tulpa abilities, does your dragon tulpa want less realism? Not a problem, Argos 9001 supports multiple levels of tulpa access, giving them everything from full god powers to no powers at all. One size never fit all, so why bother trying to make it work that way? And speaking of rule sets, the Argos 9001 comes preloaded with a global rule set system, making it easy for you as a host to set any global rules that you wish to apply to all of your worlds. Rule sets can also be narrowed down per world if you wish as well. Again, our customers minds are the limit! You think it, The Argos makes into inner world reality for you! So don't wait until the cows come home, make a bargain today and pick up your package for the low low price of your immortal soul and descendants for all time. Operators are standing by! With that out of the way, I can say Sarah has been invaluable over the years since she works as sort of buffer between me and the inner worlds. Rather than decide what happens, we simply use Sarah as a sort of interface to the subconscious, thereby having it still create all the content. And yes, having a lot of inner worlds is difficult, so writing most of it down helps with the memory of it too. Anyways, as it so happens, I'm also compiling a sort of "World Guide" to our inner worlds where I describe each world and it's culture as closely as possible. But that's incredibly slow work and will most likely result in an actual book that'll act as a primer to everything. But, four years of content is hard to put into one post, so I'll update you all with what I've been up to lately as a host, namely the act of turning our beautiful castle in our main world into an actual reality rather than a concept with a few rooms. Last week I posted A tour of Castle Odylfius where I detailed the main floor plan mockups and detailed some rooms in glorious MSpaint. However, I also ended up running out of time, so yesterday, I posted an update detailing the few rooms I missed out on before along with some screenshots from a Minecraft version I started on too. Also, to finish off this post with a bit of a personal tint, here's a snapshot of what everyone is doing in our inner world right now: Mech: Is currently sitting in front of his computer in the main world's Castle. He appears to be playing Borderlands 2. Circe: Is at The Beach where she's currently receiving a drink from her favorite bartender Josh. Jane: Is apparently in a VR simulation, doing martial arts sparring. Mirror: Doing dishes in the tavern she lives in along with Thor. Thor: Is taking a cold bath in a frozen lake, they have a shower you know? Steve/Bear: Both are sleeping in their shared den. Jeanette: Is walking down the castle hallway, stopping every few steps to listen, I think she's hunting for rats. Which would be cute, if she wasn't a feline the size of a Cheetah. Charlie: Is currently taking orders from a young couple in the restaurant at the hotel he works in. Stay tuned!
  14. Me and Mech have been puzzling about it for quite some time about what the nature of this all could be. We started out with basic brain chemistry and realized halfway that science doesn't understand jack shit. Sure, we can explain some of the mechanics, but that doesn't really correlate to any useful info on behavior does it? So we changed the focus and delved into something we do know a lot about, psychology. Over the years, our observations seem to confirm that tulpas are just projections that are animated by the subconscious. But mid-way through that realization, I also had a more scary idea.. that my own idea of self was in fact just another projection. After I got over the initial shock, I realized that it does seem to fit with most of the reactions and interactions between us in the system and the inner world. After all, one of us has some sort of idea and sometimes it does reflect into the things that the inner world does on it's own too. But, until science has given this a serious pass, this is all up in the air, but that's the best theory we have so far.
  15. For our system it was me getting my heart broken and disassociating emotionally and realizing just how many obvious signs I'd missed that the girl I'd been into was into someone else. I realized there was an edge to be had here, so I created Mech as a way to attempt to speak directly to my logical side. Now, two plus decades later, I can safely say that this all snowballed pretty damn hard.
  16. We have multiple mindscapes that are accessible through our main construct which is a long hallway with customized doors. Our worlds have a life of their own and develop at their own pace regardless of our input. Recently for instance, I had been visiting a world entrance that led to spaceship in the outskirts of our solar system. A few days ago, I checked in again and noticed that it had been shut down. So apparently it's landed somewhere apparently.
  17. Actually the Pr board says the following: >Discussion of adult topics such as sexuality is permitted, so long as you handle it maturely and don't get overly explicit. Mentioning your tulpa's feelings about their sexuality is okay for instance; >talking about dirty things you did or would do with your tulpa or host is not. If a mildly explicit description is justifiably needed, it should be placed inside [hidden] tags. And while it doesn't mention violence, that too is a part of our inner world in some aspects. So, really, rather than second-guess or censor ourselves, it's way better to keep these things on our blog and have people visit it on their own accord instead.
  18. Thanks for the tip, but reading through those rules, I came across one that's a pretty big deal breaker since it more or less prohibits NSFW things. I wasn't aware of the rule itself, but I've redacted the link above to avoid offending anyone. So yeah, I think we'll play it safe by avoiding to post updates there, because our worlds deal with mature themes all the time.
  19. PR thread? since I'm fairly new to this forum, I haven't really brushed up on the language yet.
  20. I don't mind the review, but I shared it primarily because I wanted to give you all an update on what happened. I was contemplating censoring it, but then I realized that it would defeat the whole purpose of writing it in the first place. Jane and her world both are very raw, Circe in her own way is also very raw and through this journey, both me and Circe have gone places we usually wouldn't. I'm still not sure we've done the right thing here, but considering Jane hasn't tried any new bullshit lately, it's at least encouraging that we don't have to keep her on ice anymore.
  21. To quote Jeff Goldblum.. life.. uh.. finds a way: [Link removed due to the fact that it's very NSFW. If anyone wants to read this, simply follow the link in our profile to our blog. The entry is called Jane, again] While she's not on the same page as the rest of us, we've made significant progress during the last month. But yeah, it came with a cost since we've done some things we're ... well.. not really proud of.
  22. Other. Mech was originally constructed by me as a black suit of armor. Circe constructed herself and then when she saw my Guild Wars 2 character, she decided to use that instead: https://i.imgur.com/qAz0KVq.png Circe then accidentally created Mirror, when she thought she'd only cloned herself temporarily. Mirror chose her own body: https://i.imgur.com/TT5ABoA.png And then there's Thor, whose based off the Norse god mythology. He doesn't look like any comic book or movie Thor out there, he looks like a decently buff guy with a huge beard and long hair. Think 90s death metal guys kind of. I'm not even going to discuss him changing his looks, because he'll just laugh at me.
  23. Ah, yeah, sorry about the confusion. A little clarification on access and worlds. Our system has several worlds which we've created over the years. Since I'm the host, it falls to me to administrate them. So, being in IT, I decided to set it up with a simple rights system where each entity has rights depending on their status and origin. We primarily have three sets of entities, tulpas which generally are aware of what's going on and themselves, extras who are like the faceless people you pass on the street and forget about and then there's characters who are kind of like named extras. You know, like say a shop keeper you see once in a blue moon. Anyways, since technically Jane was just a character, she doesn't really have access to any other worlds like my other tulpas have. When she got herself trapped in the stasis filter, I thought that maybe it was time to see if she could handle it, to lift the veil so to speak. So I took her to our central world and told her just enough to let her know that she was onto something. But that I couldn't really answer any of it right now. I asked her to stay in her world and not attempt anything more for the time being. I did that deliberately, because I wanted to see if she'd freak out (like a lot of characters do, in which case I reset them). Instead of freaking out, she seemed to just keep on living her normal life. But unbeknownst to me and the others, she was already plotting to kidnap both Circe and Mirror so she could figure out the rest on her own. Anyways, it's a long story what happened after that, but it didn't end well for her. What I did do though as a last ditch attempt was to have a talk with her about everything and really tell her everything, about her status, about how our worlds work, what tulpas are, that there's a real world outside, that the year really is only 20XX instead a few hundred years past that. The only thing that did was make her ask for more rights without wanting to give up anything about herself. The problem here though is that she's damn smart and she's already shown that she can think outside of the box on more than one occasion. So I don't want to give her any more reign than she already has. Putting her in "jail" isn't going to be an option either, because every little iota of space and power I give her, she uses against me. And I really don't need that kind of tug-of-war with an entity in my head. She knows I care about her and she'll abuse that to the fullest. As for lore reasons to "fix" her, sure those are nice ideas, but in the end it'd be just the same as brainwashing her and she'd be the first to point that out. While I've already figured out at least three story related methods to make her "normal" again, they're all still variants on the same thing, what I want .. and not what she wants.
  24. Nah, she's all in it for the thrill of causing pain. It's one of the things I know she was honest about way back when she gave me her first (of many) sob stories. Apparently causing others pain and killing them gets her sexually excited, thanks to her implants and her conditioning. Apparently if it's not at least partly sentient and human, it does nothing for her. I discussed alternate ways of getting her that "high" in the past and she basically smiled at me and went "You're offering to be my little personal boy toy? How how romantic of you!" And we did discuss containment, but she's made it clear she wants everything or nothing. Full access, all worlds. Anything less would have her try and break out. Considering she defeated my perception filter on my exit to "her" world with a simple GPS tracker was impressive, but also kind of scary because it's not an avenue I'd thought of. While she is arguably an interesting individual (which more people than one have expressed in the past) her persona is unfortunately flawed. I was discussing our conversation with Mech before as well and he did point out that her implants and conditioning are in fact abstracts, so digging into those doesn't help. Furthermore, even if we did find a way to get her "safe" it'd just be another roundabout way of snapping my fingers. And on that account, she expressed that she'd love nothing more than to actually have me do that to her, because as she put it "It'd eat away at you forever, maybe even drive you crazy one day, I love that idea. Makes me feel all hot and bothered...." So yeah, until I can figure out something else, she'll remain in stasis. Edit: To say that she's highly manipulative is an understatement as you can understand, so an argument with her is always like a roller coaster in a way.
  25. I actually did something that I normally don't. Which is to actually go the vault and wake her up. As we sat down, we had the following discussion: Jane: Missed me? That was a nice nap. So .. who do you need me to kill? Me: I didn't really thaw you for that. I'm here to talk. I shared your story online and there's been some discussion of whether or not you can be rehabilitated. Jane: Oh, so you've immortalized my life in words online? I'm touched! Me: I noticed that you always do that, you respond to things with sarcasm. Jane: Oh no, I wasn't being sarcastic. It's actually interesting that you shared my story and that those little people out there actually care! Tell them I said hi. Me: That wasn't what I wanted to discuss with you. Jane: So get to the point already, all this talk is starting to bore me. Me: Alright, someone online wanted me to say this to you (here I showed her the post) Jane: Oh fuck me haha! What's this? First year psych student bullshit? I know exactly who I am and I like who I am. It's you who don't like the fact that I'm not willing to be another one of your happy people out there. And it's like I've told you before, it's so fucking ironic, because you could fix all of this, you could fix me. Just snap your fingers and make me into another one of your happy puppets. Go on.. I'll love it, because you'll make me love it. What do you say? A little mind fuck never hurt anyone before right? Besides, it probably won't be worse than what the military fucks did to me anyway. Oh and did I tell you about the things they did to my body the first time it came out of the tank? Oh I bet you'd love that little sordid story.. see there was that one researcher who- Me: I don't wanna hear it. Jane: But you'd love it! It's a spin on "Boy meets girl" where the boy has a wife that doesn't do anal and the girl is a half drugged clone that's barely conscious. Me: I know they did terrible things to you over there and if you're serious about talking about them, I'm willing to listen. Jane: Well, maybe it wasn't "boy meets girl" my memory is kind of fuzzy there, maybe it was "girl slowly cuts boy into ribbons" or something like that. Me: So another lie then? Jane: Of course! But you have to admit it makes for a compelling story, the poor innocent woman who takes revenge on all men because she was raped. You see, it makes it easier to sympathize with me. You know, paint me as the victim rather than the aggressor. Make me into that delicious little two dimensional equation that you some day solve and then.. RAINBOWS, EVERYWHERE! Me: You know I'm not going to give up on you. Jane: And you're such a sweetie for doing that too. Now, unless you mind, I'll be going back to my pod again. I need my beauty sleep. And as she went back into her pod, I asked her again: Me: Are you sure you want this? If you'd only be willing to work with me, the sky could be the limit. Jane: Oh I'm sure. Oh and yeah, before I go.. eyes up here mister. So that's how that discussion went. We've had a few by now. I've tried different ways to get through to her, but nothing really sticks.
