Please don't try to phrase it like my view is the result of me being some kind of simpleton who needs the story spoonfed to them.

Shadow creatures in the normal world was already confirmed in Maxwell's lore, this animation does not confirm Willow has powers as you never see her actually perform pyrokinesis and she doesn't distinctly have pyrokinesis in DST, Bernie is not a shadow creature repellent in DST they straight up attack him in DST which means the lore is either contradicting itself or he was altered upon entering the Constant; and I've not seen anything that confirms her parents are "missing". They could just be dead, for any number of reasons.

As I said, this animation says almost nothing. By comparison, in Winona's animation we learned all kinds of facts surrounding her entry in the Constant and her boss who also is significant to the story.

She has pyrokinesis in single player because she's not with Bernie, which is her emotional support. She does'nt have it in DST because she's reunited with Bernie.

Theory B: Shadow Creatures do exist naturally in the real world ...

Naturally is a weird way of thinking about it.

I think they do originate from the Constant but were in the real world before Maxwell even did anything. After all the Codex was already in the real world somehow, Maxwell just utilized it. The question is whether the Codex was made in the real world or off-world.

EDIT: Totally missed minespatch's post. That's the same line of thinking I've got.

Can't help but agree, this is my train of thought, too.

They first came from the Constant, but were brought over via book.

Or possibly a rift, as Wagstaff suggests in some of SW's quotes.

Drop Changes
We have removed icons, vignettes and profile backgrounds from the drop table. These items are still weaveable, however you will no longer receive them as drops. In addition, we have added about 100 color and slight variants of many existing common drops.

Originally we added the icons, vignettes and profile backgrounds so that we had more items to collect, but as many of these items were seasonal items, it gave the appearance that these were being dropped unintentionally. 

that needed to go thanks much

Yup, you can check your item collection to see what you can potentially get.

She was holding Bernie, which gave her that last tick of Sanity necessary to stop being attacked by shadow creatures ;)

Though, my previous post brings up two different theories, now that I think about it.

Theory A: Shadow Creatures do not exist naturally in the real world, and Maxwell screwed around with Shadow Creatures via the Codex Umbra and incantations and summoned some into the real world, some of which slipped out when Willow was a child. It was not until a decade or more later when Willow was in her adulthood that she got kidnapped into The Constant.

Theory B: Shadow Creatures do exist naturally in the real world, and Maxwell simply channeled them to use in his magic acts. Maxwell was performing his act a decade of more after the orphanage incident in the video, when Willow was already an adult, and she got kidnapped into The Constant not too long after Maxwell and Wilson.

I believe that the Shadow Creatures came to existence during Maxwell's magic acts, they probably leaked into the world while he was impressing his audience (both in his final act and his acts before that) and he didn't notice it.

the short was beautifully animated for the time you had, and im very impressed by that

despite the fire immunity im not really satisfied with the direction of her rework, but ill refrain from giving negative feedback for now. im glad you listened to the community for some of the issues she had before though

I'm confused, is multiple large bernies going to be a thing or is  this a bug?

Hmm...I can't help but notice, that so far BOTH of the character-rework animations ended in some building blowing up in a ball of fire.

If this trend continues...does that mean the old sawmill Woodie used to work at will be "mysteriously" taken out by a summer forest fire?  ;)

...Notorious

The only big orphanage fire I can find was in 1901, so they must have come before the book was found. What I've always thought about the book was that some other magician was in the circus train with the book, and he had been using it until the crash. 

And Max says something about things being there before him, so we don't know what they were doing before he showed up.
