        TIP_SANITY = "\"I fear I may no longer be able to trust my own eyes. I've been catching glimpses of strange shadowy forms at the edges of my vision with increasing frequency... surely they can't really be there?\" -W",
        TIP_DARKNESS = "\"They say the Shadow Queen herself comes at night to snatch up anyone foolish enough to wander in the dark...\" -W",
        TIP_CAVES = "\"I finally worked up the courage to explore the underground caverns. To my surprise, I found there was ample light provided by a most curious glowing plant that seems to grow naturally throughout the cave system. I've harvested some bulbs for further study.\" -W",
        TIP_PIG_AND_MONSTERS = "\"The Pig men seem to harbor a deep dislike for the Constant's more monstrous denizens, attacking them on sight. While I personally can't blame them, it does pose a bit of a problem for some of my compatriots...\" -W",

        TIP_COMPASS = "\"I experimented with making a rudimentary compass and discovered that this place does in fact seem to have a magnetic North. Curiously, it also pointed out the positions of my fellow camp mates who, as it turned out, had already crafted similar compasses of their own.\" -W",
        TIP_FLARE = "\"A flare was sent up from the forest last night. I know I should have set out immediately to help, but... well...

        TIP_REPLANTING = "\"The bushes I replanted by the camp are looking sickly... I suspect they'll require some extra care before they can produce any berries again.\" -W",
        TIP_NAUGHTINESS = "\"We shouldn't hurt things that don't hurt us. If we're mean, bad old Mr. Krampus will come...\" -W",
        TIP_BERRYLURE = "\"Last time I baited my hook with berries I caught more fish than I could carry, but when I tried today? Barely a nibble! Guess the berry trick only works on some of 'em.\" -W",
        TIP_OCEANEXPLORATION = "\"What strange new islands and creatures might I encounter if I journey out to sea? I shudder to think... but curiosity has a tendency to get the better of me...\" -W",
        TIP_REVIVE = "\"We nearly lost one of our number today. In a mad daze I created... something... that managed to pull our friend back to the land of the living, but... whatever it was, I fear I cannot rightfully say it was within the realm of science...\" -W",
        TIP_COBBLEDROAD = "\"Today I was surprised to come upon a cobbled road - how did this hallmark of civilization come to be in this untamed wilderness?\" -W",

yeah, perhaps this thread could instead be used for collecting suggestions for new tips and lore bits. 

Picklesaurus has already started with their suggestion in Szczuku's thread, so to keep things organized we should post our suggestions there.

Tips lie to you, one claims Ctrl+F hits friends but it only goes to neutral at best. Ctrl+M1 hits friends.

I also don't like how revealing they are with Charlie, but I guess she's already a big prominent feature now so the tips don't do much. It was really cool in DSA to wonder why you're hurt in the dark then after you unlock Maxwell he refers to it as Charlie. The morgue entry also said Charlie instead of Darkness or Grue if you were Maxwell.

So it seems mainly Wilson and Maxwell are writing tips?

Could this be a guessing game?

Imagine JAmes Bucket doing a mossbag type video in this. :wilson_ecstatic:

Heh, mostly, but there are a few others in there. I see at least Woodie, Willow, and Webber lines.

Wagstaff should laugh at Maxwell every time he describes how mysterious, powerful and terrifying They are.:wilsondisappointed:
