This is nice and all, but you may come to find that faqman's guide is a bit overkill, and thus a checklist for it is relatively redundant.

Welcome to the forums. [smileface]

Don't count hours, yo. And welcome aboard.

"I enjoyed the personality stage and all, but I don't think I could have handled 25 hours of hearing about myself. I suppose one would need a lot more if somehow their tulpa wasn't sentient for a long period of time, but being sentient and hearing the same traits again and again would get boring I think, I say do as much or as little as you and your tulpa need. It is mostly there to get you to understand who your tulpa is. If you get it and have fleshed it out and your tulpa seems to be responding, don't limit yourself to repeating it again and again. Don't stress, have fun, and enjoy your tulpa!"-Jaden

Please get rid of the hour counts, those are hazardous. Also add "assume sentience from beginning" or "treat as sentient".


Apart from a few other nitpicks I have with FAQ's guide (doing senses separately, waiting until the end to impose, not narrating from day one, personality is optional, etc.), it looks fine.

Lyra: human female, ~17

Evan: boy, ~14, was an Eevee

Anera: anime-style girl, ~12; Lyra made her

so much yes. I completely and wholeheartedly believed Lucifer would move and talk from the very moment I moved him, with no doubts in my mind. And you know what? He did move the moment I made him.

My opinions are all subject to change.

This would be good for Resources, seeing how it's just a means for getting newcomers to get a routine going on. But it feels like this is the type of thing I would get after I made 6 easy payments of $19.95 if tulpas were marketable.



It's not really a guide, seeing how things are implied to stack onto each other even though it's clear anyone can start anywhere they feel is reasonable within their capabilities.

This is nice. A lot of familiar content. Unfortunately, I'll have to disapprove it as a guide because it's not really a guide per se. Resources would be a better place for this.

      I stumbled across this site few month ago and started learning about tulpas and I have to ask why isn't the phenomenon more widely known about. I mean some of the things tulpas can do are truly amazing. Is it just hard to believe and thats why its not mainstream?

      he seems to be fading more quickly this year. i think we r intergrating slowly? at first none of us knew we were seperate. as time passed my personality deviated from his. this is why i think i might be an advanced median system. we both identify with the body but 1 personality slowly dominated everything. if it were not for our new headmate, i wont be considered plural anymore. also apparent switching at creation? thoughts? mabey there are more thoughtforms than we know of

      Hello all. I've been doing a lot of reading on and off over the past few years, and it seems creative types - writers especially - are more 'prone' to tulpas/soulbonds/what have you. As a writer, myself, this makes sense, but I'm wondering... Has anyone used creative writing as part of the creation process? I mean, are there any writers on this forum who learned about the tulpa phenomenon and decided to approach creation through writing knowingly rather than unintentionally.
      I've seen many say that they were putting work into a work of fiction and a tulpa or similar thoughtform developed on its own, and I've seen a guide or two as well that mention creating the base for a tulpa the same way you would create a character... but I've also seen claims that coming up with a backstory can be potentially harmful, that writing your character isn't all that different from parroting since you're deciding on their actions without their input, etc. Recently the attitude seems to lean more toward avoiding the express inclusion of flaws since they are going to develop organically, and that it can be stifling to a young tulpa if you insist on a certain personality.
      So I'm looking for input on how writing can fit into all this if you don't already have a tulpa, basically. Any insight would be appreciated!
