Topics to Talk About with Your Tulpa

Recommended Posts

During narration, it's easy to reach a mental block and become unable to think of what to talk about to your tulpa. This list provides you with many different options for topics to use during narration, conversation, and vocality practice.


For narrating, talk to your tulpa about anything that interests you. Don't worry about repeating yourself or telling your tulpa something they already know: the content is secondary to the actual act of talking to them consistently. Use this list for inspiration, talk to them as much as you can, and don't stress over whether or not it's the "right" way to narrate. Do what works for you as best as you can and you're good.


If there's anything this list is missing, feel free to suggest it.


The list:


All about you

All about your tulpa











Countries/the world


Current mood/thoughts




















Idols/role models


Immediate surroundings


Internet/social media

Issues important to you

Life itself












Personal belongings


Places you like/want to visit

Plans for the day/week






Senses you're currently experiencing

Something you're looking forward to

Space/the universe





The day/week/year so far

Toys/stuffed animals



...and anything else you can think of!

Not a GAT member, but I think this is a practical list. The topics are general enough to allow for natural conversation, but specific enough that I can easily think of what I'd talk about. And there's a lot of them, as well as more in the sources!


I tried thinking of topics off the top of my head, and everything I came up with was already on here, which is a good sign. The spelling and grammar is solid, no errors to my eye.

Gavin here, now a GAT member. As Jamie said, the topics are a good balance of being general enough that most people have experiences

with them, but not too broad. A handy list. One minor phrasing that I found clunky: "This list is to help provide you with many different options" can be condensed to "This list provides you with many different options."

It's a straight forward list I wish we had. I like that the topics you picked are easy to talk about but also invoke enough thought to last for a little while. I think the little blurb at the beginning about narration is a nice friendly explanation for how hosts can use this resource.


This isn't a Tips and Tricks submission because you're giving the reader a tool they can use with some advice instead of a technique, skill, or different mindset they can try out. As it stands, approved for Resources.


Edit: Since the Resources board no longer exists, I approve this for Tips and Tricks.

I'm Ranger, Gray's/Cat_ShadowGriffin's tulpa, and I love hippos! I also like cake and chatting about stuff.

Right, my first thought on submissions that are just a quick whatever/not actual guide is Tips & Tricks, but this is the definition of a Resource huh? I always forget about that board..

Hi! I'm Lumi, host of Reisen, Tewi, Flandre and Lucilyn.

Everyone deserves to love and be loved. It's human nature.

My tulpas and I have a Q&A thread, which was the first (and largest) of its kind. Feel free to ask us stuff.

This is a pretty comprehensive list of subjects to talk about.



the content is secondary to the actual act of talking to them consistently



Very true.


There's not really much else to say apart from that. Approved for Tips and Tricks.

Good list of topics for conversation, and I like the intro which covers common concerns about narration. I see a lot of people who just don't know what to talk about to their tulpa, so it's good to have a resource like this available. Approved for Tips & Tricks.

Overall, the guide is good. The spelling and grammar are perfect, there’s a clear definition of the issue and a clear solution offered. It’s a good guide, simple, and to the point. However, I feel the guide could use some improvements:


The list of topics are alphabetized, and while it’s neat, it’s not the easiest to parse. It’s easy to search if you know the first letter, but I feel the guide would benefit from breaking down the topics into categories. This would help the reader come up with a topic from the list easier and would be especially helpful to those like myself with ADHD who benefit greatly from structure.


Additionally, you could bullet each topic, but that’s really just a nitpick.

There is already another very similar tip/trick, 42/5 things to do with your tulpa, but this tip/tick distinguishes itself by being only about narration topics rather than general activities, so it has its own niche.


I don't have any problems with the guide. It knows what it's doing, and it does it well. Approved for tips and tricks.

I have a tulpa named Miela who I love very much.

      Hi. I started creating my tulpa, Ciris, yesterday and i have a question about narration.
      When i talk to my tulpa, should i talk to her as if she knows everything i know, or consider her as a new born ?
      For example, should i be like:
      "Hey Ciris, this is my aunt, my mom, my brother and sister.." ?
      Thanks for replying :)

      Hi! Host here, Lolli; I'm very new to the forums, so I apologize if this has already been addressed, but this question isn't so much about forcing/visualization/dialogue or anything like that so much as the means to express these things. 
      I'm an artist and I've doodled and drawn my first tulpa, Ichibod for years, and while Priscilla is young, my visualization of her is very strong now and they are both extremely vocal. Our new system is adjusting and it's fun, but it gets complex because they often talk between each other, or with me, or about general things that I'm not even involved in. I've been trying to think of some kind of way to channel this communication. As a host, I'm comfortable with text, but I know that my tulpas aren't some kind of mechanism for roleplay or anything like that. What I'm seeking is a way to both document some of our conversations, so that I can draw them later as well, but also let them talk more fluidly besides random spurts of words, tulpish, and emotive impressions. I started brainstorming how we could effectively talk in text without it being through some simulated bot in a chatroom or anything like that. 
      Has anyone had any experience using a chat service or anything like that to engage with their own tulpas without outside influence? I mean, there's typing into a notepad, but that seems like parroting for them. There's Discord, but I don't know if there's a way to have multiple accounts and use them in a room. I'm not that tech savvy (Icky may be, but he's a little out of the loop about this as well; he's always been socially awkward, lol.) 
      I hope I didn't take too much of your time! Thank you so much for reading! We appreciate it :3

      It's day 2 since I created my tulpa and I have been talking to her for an hour today ( I have been really busy )
      After I talked to her and stopped visualising felt a bit.. woozy? I don't know how to describe it. Woozy is the best word to describe it. I only felt like that for a few minutes but on to the main thing. When I was talking to her I was visualising her and me in our wonderland and seeing her through my point of view and occasionally seeing us both. I talked to her about her personalities and how she had every right to make her own choices about well everything tbh. I asked her a few questions and I tried playing rock paper scissors. I explained the rules but every time we played she would only choose rock. I'm sure I didn't parrot since I only focused on my choices. But I do feel like I was parroting like when I told her a joke and she smiled Or when she laughed I'm certain I was parroting her. How do i stop? And am I doing everything right?

      Hi ,
      Sooo i have been trying to understand this for like 2 days now , I am maybe just retarded right now .
      I understand what is tulpish . Images , sounds , intentions (that is the definition right lol ?)
      Say i want to say in tulpish that i am coming home . I would send an image of me going somewhere and opening a door .
      But how could i possibly say that i am going "home" and most of all that i am going "right now" and i am not sending a fantasy or just a memory.
      I guess it would come from my intentions . And maybe here is the problem , how in the world do i do that ?
      Like when you send your intentions what do you feel ? how do you "generate" them ?
      How do i include them in my message ?
      Like i said it's maybe just simple stupid and i am missing something obvious but i just cant figure this out.

      I have been narrating to Lily for about a week, sitting down before bed and talking to her though she cant talk back yet, and sometimes I get too carried away with talking that I forget to visualise or pay attention to her. Sometimes i forget that I’m even now talking to her. And I was hoping that someone could either: 
      Tell me if this is a bad thing or if this will halt the time it takes before she talks to me.
      Or if you could give me tips on how to stay focused.
