William Carter's story so far(PUZZLE findings and lore compilation)

I have a theory, but it might be crazy.

 

First of all, I don't think They are making him do anything. According to Maxwell, he doesn't know what they want. All They do is watch. Perhaps they like to observe how humans react in situations the same way a psychologist does.

 

As for the adventure mode question, this has also bothered me. However, on a recent play through of adventure mode, I noticed something. When Maxwell greets the player anytime in survival mode, his appearance is accompanied by smoke and a "popping" sound. In adventure mode, his appearance is accompanied by a black swirling shadow at his feet and a ghostly sound. On top of that, his appearance becomes more and more beast-like. It may just be a coincidence, but maybe that projection isn't Maxwell at all. It could be Them, or Charlie somehow taking his form. They both have reasons why they wouldn't want him to leave.

They don't just watch. He says that They'll show beautiful and horrible things and that if you get too close They'll do something to you, that's why he stays so dapper.

They seem to like to observe human behavior and/or creativity, and for that they need someone to input creativity and turn the world interesting for other humans to survive. "Getting too close" would mean being insane in that world, where you can see them and they become more tangible, able to interact. That angers Them, they don't want to watch in the shadows, from far, they don't want to be seen and messed with.

I saw an add for dont starve and wanted to see the full image. Much to my suprise there is a hidden image near the bottom that leads to a desktop background and a picture of "charlie" looking scared. http://images.eurogamer.net/2013/takeovers/Dont-Starve-Skin-Halloween.jpg I also found this. Dont know if anyone else has. http://www.dontstarvegame.com/science/mdocs/ta-da/praecantator.html

It has changed. I remember when it was only "3". Wish i chould have saved it.

We knew about praecantator and its changing image for the long time. People have been pressing f5 obsessively for a couple of days now. Here are all the images so far.

Thanks for the desktop wallpaper though. Can you give an exact link to the ad?

Great pic, but no Wickerbottom?! When was it made?

I don't like Wickerbottm really but I was disappointed that she wasn't included at all.

 

Perhaps this confirms that Wickerbottom doesn't exist at all and is a figment of our imaginations, a trick Klei made on us.

It was a joking Lovecraft reference.

"Hey Maxy,

 
  We really knocked 'em dead
Last night, didn't we? I
though that old guy in the
front wasn't going to make
it. Those shadow things are so
convincing - they almost scare
me, and I'm part of the act!
 
  We can work on the new finale
when I get back from my sister's
place. I'm looking forward to it!
                         ~ Charlie ♥"

 

Hm, that... "transcript"... aww, you made me happy, Spaz!~

Maybe you should also mention the picture inside "introrsus".

You happen to have a link for that one? The puzzle thread likes to emerge posts out of nowhere and I kinda lost track of it :p

Yeah, that is indeed your "transcript" Vin. You made me realize I never really credited you for it, even though I kinda copy/pasted it in it's entirely from your post. Added the new puzzle and a little credit box in the end for those who deserve it :)

Aww, no need to credit me for something so minor!

Hey, everyone.

 

Might want to add this to the OP.

 

http://www.dontstarvegame.com/science/mdocs/max/stage/1/grand-finale.html

 

We found it by decoding morse code found in a mod Klei hid in a webpage.

and if you want to hear it put

 

exordium

 

into this translator http://morsecode.scphillips.com/jtranslator.html

 

thats how I figured it out except with the morse code being entered instead of the word
