  1. Is wormwood a treeguard?

    Just a small lore question: is wormwood a treeguard? - He has a close relationship with plants, because of that, he hates when things hurts plants, just like treeguards. - His face is very similar to palm treeguards from shipwrecked I know its a very lazy made post, Im sorry All images are taken from dont starve wiki
  2. If once character would have to murder another character to save everyone else, whether that person had an incurable disease, was a traitor and thus threatening the lives of everyone, had become corrupted beyond salvation or the like. Who would be willing to get their hands dirty? Who is willing to take the bullet, knowing the rest may look at them differently from now on? Would they feel any remorse or regret doing so? Would they hesitate?
  3. If one character where to betray the survivors for his or her benefit, who do you think it'd be? And why would they betray the team? Added Wagstaff because he's important to the lore and will most definetly show up to dst later I learnt my lesson from last time and didn't add Wes. Because Wes memes are unfunny. There, I said it!
  4. If one character would have to die for the story to move on, who do you think it'd be? They'd still be playable. They'd just be dead in the lore. Also how would they have died? Warly and Wormwood doesn't count since they're not out yet.
  5. look what i found : selene goddess of the moon !!! * describtion of "Moon" Figure : " It's a selene figurine! " according to wiki : In Greek mythology, Selene (/sɪˈliːni/; Ancient Greek: Σελήνη [selɛ̌ːnɛː] "Moon") is the goddess of the moon. She is the daughter of the Titans Hyperion and Theia, and sister of the sun-god Helios, and Eos, goddess of the dawn. She drives her moon chariot across the heavens. Several lovers are attributed to her in various myths, including Zeus, Pan, and the mortal Endymion. In classical times, Selene was often identified with Artemis, much as her brother, Helios, was identified with Apollo.[1] Selene and Artemis were also associated with Hecate, and all three were regarded as lunar goddesses, but only Selene was regarded as the personification of the moon itself. Her Roman equivalent is Luna.
  6. Originally I wrote this in a comment, but now I have though abit about it and i want to discuss it. Thou it's far fetch theroy (crazy). I think we are inside a sphare or a cylinder and the world is on it's walls. This could explain why the moon is on the ground, "moon" rocks are falling from it(up) to the bottom (normal world) while we can sail up (to the moon island). I noticed that during full moon the fisures start to glow stronger (and that is how the world below becomes illuminated by the moon). The moon rocks are parts falling from above, maybe even the puddles - hot spring - As I noticed that some of them go up and the water freezes (meteors = it could be the liquid falling to the ground)Or something else not really sure about this one... Also the background art is in circle (the sea is in circle). And the moon has been... magical (the moonrocks) at full moon there are ghost,gloomer,werepigs,everything mutates, so hounds that go there + pengulls also mutate! The biggest fault of this theory is the sun ... how is there a sun if this is true ! Do you think there is a hint of possability about this theory. Or is it just crazy talk. If you find more stuff about it or I'm just wrong about something feel free to write and discuss. Crappy drawing pic to illustrate what I mean...
  7. This video is based on Tapirus (Broken Dice)'s post "A full explanation about Willow's Design", thank you for approaching me to suggest making video on such interesting topic. Quite timely topic too given Willow's recent rework. Anyways, enjoy! Original Post :
  8. first of all i thanks klei and his devs to making awesome games and support it ; and also listening to its fans .you made a perfect dlc , congrats on that to you and players. but... in my opinion i think ds is a dead game and what can make hamlet worth to play is "LORE" , some lore that serve to "dst lore" and push the story of survivors forward ; otherwise its just a wasting time to make a base that no one can see your effort and play with you (even with new awesome staffs!) and i hardly waited to see that lore especially when wagstaff released but did'nt see anything and now hamlet launched and still NO LORE ! and lemmi say what lore i expected . i was thinking dst upcoming update is about escaping from constant to our home by defeating "them" ; and hamlet is a step before this achievement and it is a backstory for upcoming dst update! BUT IT WASN'T ! Actually i expected these lores from hamlet : 1 - wagstaff lore : - an animation/comic pictues or special gameplay unlocking like maxwell/wes through his adventure mode with his lore - is wagstaff in real world and his picture is in constant? - how he sudenly appeared in constant and where he was? what he gained through his absence ? and are he useful to help survivors? are his tech or research can help survivors to defeat "them" and get out constant to go "home"? i expected from wagstaff be 3rd protagonist person like max/wil and help the group , i thought he can share his knowledge and experience with the others that he achived through those years of absence to travel new land and maybe home by defeating charlie, and this is match to upcoming dst update too ! i know i bit too far , but i still expected more lore from that ! but they launched it without any LORE about wagstaff! 2 - special "tech" lied behind hamlet i expected the Ultimate goal of hamlet and usful of it be a "special tech" from ancient of hamlet that waited to be discoverd by wagstaff and bringed it back to real or dst world . And in dst assembled it with opal gem to use on ancient gate or celestial portal to travel to our home or making an special tool to defeat charlie/them ! ........... when they said hamlet launched with dst upcoming update , i think they are connected with eachother but i was wrong ! hamlet was just a "dlc" ! i expected too much "LORE" from that ! hamlet is just a shiny dlc from a dead game and i dont wast my time on things that no one can see you in-game and can just saw some pics of it !
  9. Hamlet Speculation?

    I was rewatching the E3 Hamlet Gameplay trailer and I believe that Wilson was trying to escape the Constant (The RoG world, I believe not sure) and hopefully go back to his house or somewhere with civilization. In his attempt however he is punished! I believe that the lighting strike that hit him wasn't random, in fact it could be the same lighting strike that hits you when you try to attack the throne. Now, I don't think he crashed into Hamlet, because at the start of the video he is going up, meaning he just started the journey, If the lighting strike was normal he would probably crash some meters away his initial start point. The lighting strike teleported him to Hamlet where somebody else rules. In my opinion Hamlet comes after Don't Starve Together because Maxwell isn't on the throne anymore, hence why he doesn't introduce us to the world and instead Maxameleon does. This is my 1st ever speculation about the game and I'm missing a lot of the lore but I hope that it's not something that is being talked about
  10. Wilba is a pig after all and pigs are not Charlie's targets. She does not seem to be more intelligent than other pigs or be somehow related to normal world. Also her father's legacy should not affect her in the way that makes her a victim for Charlie. Why then Wilba is not safe in the dark?
  11. All credits to Sundra for this theory, me for formatting and writing. PART 1: Lets just get the big thing out of the way first. We do not meet Wagstaff in DS. Well, we do. But that's not REALLY Wagstaff. Wagstaff's sitting at home eating scones on his armchair of whatever he does, while he's using the PR-76 (PRojection device) to attune himself to the Constant or wherever you are. He is nothing but a projection, a man half in the world, hence why he still interacts with it. Proof: PART 2: This is when it starts to get confusing. Wagstaff see's WX, and other robotic creations like the Clockworks. This is possible because time in the constant, as quoted by Maxwell: "Makes no ******* sense dude"-real Maxwell quote Wagstaff creates WX-78 (IRL) to form as a means to access the constant in more... efficient means, allowing him to truly interact with the one thing he desires. The nightmare throne, the secret to ultimate power. Oh, but how does he meet WX? The nightmare throne, the secret to ultimate power. Again. When Wagstaff takes the throne from WX, he leaves (the throne appears empty when the player next reaches it), and sets his ULTIMATE PLAN into action. Proof: PART 3: Wagstaff begins work on his very own portal, not dissimilar to Wilson, through which he shall send WX-78. He designs his voxila radio to be tuned to the constant in order to receive instructions from Maxwell, or whoever's in control. He activates it, sends in WX and than meets the night creature. Needless to say, they don't hit it off great and he gets pulled in. For realsies this time. In the ensuing chaos, one of his workers is sucked in and the factory burns down. COMPLETE TIMELINE: Once again, kudos for Sundra for all the work. I just wrote it down and put in funnies.
  12. Watching others companies, I been thinking would be nice if Klei start publishing short tales about the world of DS & DST. I'll explain more: Games like Overwatch, Endless Space 2 and Minion Masters has started to release small stories or comics in pdf format since a while, pleasing the communities and expanding the lore as result. People enjoy read chronicles involving some minor characters, protagonists, antagonists and supporting characters in different adventures. By example, a story explaining what happened with Wortox after the events of Possessions trailer. That sounds interesting, right?
  13. Wonder why Wortox has 6 souls when he starts ? 1- Krampis 2- Wilson 3- Wes 4- Beefalo 5- Baby Beefalo 6- Butterfly :> See even Devs knew butterflies were going to be essential for Wortox.
  14. Despite some people complained about the survivor skin not matching the DST style, I think the Minotaur and the Survivor skins are related to the lore presented in the video: He seems to get his physical shape changed according to the last powerful soul he got, so I'd guess his default red is after taking the Krampus, the Minotaur one could be if he killed the Ancient Guardian and I'm still not sure what could he have killed to get the survivor shape. Maybe an upcoming boss? Thoughts and ideas are welcome. Also if the above is true I want the wortox's baloonmancer skin, after absorving Wes
  15. I was going through the updated Speech_Waxwell.lua file for DST to see what Maxwell had to say about Wortox when I came across some... interesting text. At first I thought they might be snarky comments from one of the developers, but the more I found the more I realized they were meant to be from another game character. And then I found lines in the Speech_Winona.lua (I wasn't able to find any lines in the other characters' files): I think it's evident that the speaker is supposed to be Charlie. This is the first time I've seen these lines; I was curious if they've been there for a while and I just never noticed them before or if they're a new addition.
  16. Nowadays everyone talk about winona , wagstaff and upcoming refreshes/adding character , but i want to discuss somthing new and big ! the big update of dst that coming april and even change the title of the game , means " a new reign " gonne change. acording to this post that klei post in roadmap 2019, they said : " Survivors will be able to travel to new lands with new biomes, creatures, and more. " The first drop of this new content will come in mid-April, and this was posted after forge 2 : Similar to "A New Reign" Don't Starve Together will once again receive new content updates primarily centered around a elements that progress the world of Don't Starve and the Survivors that find themselves within it. so where is this new land ? and how we travel to there ? and what's we see there? i think we travel to moon and by ancient gateaway or celestial portal . and the begining of these series start with intrdoucing wagstaf , because i saw somewhere that said wagstaff and winona although was in timeline of other characters but wasn't in "their land" ! so where they were? i think the land of wagstaff is somehow related to the new land is coming. bottem of line ... i know traveling to moon via portal seems fantasy but i started this topic to discuss about future and how we can back to our homes instead of talking about past and backstory lores.i think this new upcoming land is a step forward to escape from constant ! we learned survivle tactics(in ds/dst) and cooperation(in forge,gorge) NOW it's the time to use them to meet " them" the true enemies and release charlie and get back to our homes ! klei said travel to new lands and promiss big permanent updates in mid april such as " a new reign" , so put your speculation here and get hype !
  17. Hey, look, bug people

    Mants. They're territorial, really annoying sometimes, and have a few funny bugs. Did I mention that..... THEY'RE ANTHROPOMORPHIC BUGS. Sadly however, nothing to do with bug people has ever appeared in the lore, so this has absolutely nothing to do with anything and is definitely not some possible connection with the ancients nobody seems to have considered yet.
  18. This is a discussion more about how Warbucks design and writing is quite, how do I put this lightly, bad. I’m not gonna explain all this just to scare Warbucks stand but just to bring to light on now to Not write a character for this sweet game. He's the first ever character to have such a, tone after a series of making every character have a skin tone that of paper and toned paper as a part of the art style. It’s hard to deny that it is due to his many adventures in the sun beatten jungles, but its hard to convince that he could be a POC because of the sorta history behind his character and quotes. It’s disappointing to see how the canon POC characters arent even close when it comes to saturation of skin color. The blunderbuss weapon. Warbucks had quotes referring to hunting, and some folks were fine with the idea of him being a big game hunter as that’s just what rich folks did back then. But during a KLEI art stream his portrait was altered to a shovel because he is NOT a big game hunter, and his current quotes had removed references to his hunting expeditions. Touchy Subjects: His character is ‘Rich British Explorer’. If you are aware on history like me, I was very afraid on what kind of character he was stereotyped as. Such type of people were hmm, not good to other cultures, had bad ideas on em, imperialism, all that jazz. Anddddd Warbucks originally had those quotes :/ East India Company.. REALLY, A big part of the British imperialism industry..These are now all edited to remove such a uhh tone, if you dont believe me I am glad to send you the original LUA speech file. It’s disappointing really that the new writing for new DS content had ended up like this. Sooo that’s soup for ya It's still good in a sense that KLEI edited all of that as they've seen their mistake, but Oof I just wanna make folks see why I was iffy on this character. I love KLEI but dango you made a booboo. He's just too 'perfect' in the imperfect world of DS, the only character flaws I see is him being stinky if he existed in real life. I understand that Klei hired new writer(s), which is why Woodlegs has new lines that have bad pirate grammar. Yet making a character like Warbucks on that line of historical people is hoohaaa
  19. So just like my ONI thread, And my Hamlet beta thread, I'm doing the same thing yet again! Feel free to join me in my misery, it'll be fun. ANCIENT HERALD Hey, you might've noticed that I edited this page. That's because I've finally gotten around to actually fixing that massive GIF problem. For some reason DS animations are actually quite large in terms of dimensions, and I now know that when exporting them I have to do it at ~40% of their original size otherwise they'll end up being massive and will tank my PC. I have now redone all of this and also with the added benefit of actually making them look good! Also now in APNG format, enjoy.
  20. This is a forum I am making since I have wanted to design my own "OC" for the game.Now I don't RP nor do I really write fan-fiction I still wanted to try and design a character for the game (I don't intend on making her playable as a mod) The character is still in the very early concepts and will probably have constant changes. I encourage fellow artists /designers/anyone to give input as to improvements I could make or just feedback in general. I will be adding my own bits of lore. This is all purely fake and was designed by me so please do not correct me by saying its "wrong or not how it works" My art style does not match the same look as the actual characters. Do not steal or edit my designs. So the fist bit of info you need to know is about the item I designed called the Codex Lux. I like the idea of there always being an opposite force. And what better to fight shadow then light itself. Light itself (just like shadow) in not a "good" or "bad" force. However the ancient beings or "them" that reside withing the book are very corrupting. Both forces rely on a Host. (ie. Maxwell) Without a host the power has no conduit. The Codex Lux has a damaged cover perhaps due to conflicts in the past. The Codex Lux was discovered at an ancient dig site. It found its host when one of the Archaeologists began to read the text inside. Now that that is out of the way, lets get to the character: Basic Info: Name: Wraith ( Likely an alias) Profession: Archaeologist Stats/ Attributes: Base Health: 100 Base Hunger:150 Base Sanity: 150 Movement speed and Attack increased 5% during daylight Movement speed and Attack decreased 10% during nighttime Attacks twice as fast but does significantly less damage per hit. Passive that gives higher chance of dropping fossils. Inability to use shadow items Pickaxes last longer Specalty Items/ Recipes: Starting items Codex Lux, pickaxe When close to Codex can craft: Light Retriver at cost of -50% overall hunger. Light Harvester at cost of -40% Hunger Light Retreiver: Brings items on the ground (does not include "heavy" or "special" (ie. marble sculptures, eye bone) within range to player (If player inventory full drops items next to player) Items are retrieved 1 at a time. 1 HP Aggros nearby creatures. AI does not allow it to dodge enemy attacks. Walks slower while holding item. Light Harvester: 1 HP Harvests nearby resources (not trees, rocks) item falls next to resource. And at the moment that is about all I have. XD Hopefully you enjoyed my brainstorming and the small concept sketch XD
  21. Hey guys! I've been thinking a lot about that one Klei Twitch stream that they talked about Maxwell being the first of the nightmare throne, and I wanted to tell you people some of my theories. Kris, (I think that's her name) said something like, there were 0 to 0 people on the throne before Maxwell, and there have been many people after him. (I don't remember exactly what she said...) So, if there wasn't anyone on the nightmare throne before him, then when did the Ancients arrive? As Maxwell states, "They were all dead when I got here." What confuses me is that on the murals we get from the Metheus puzzle, we see that the "king" on the Ancients sits down on a throne. A throne that most people think would eventually be the nightmare throne. If, in fact, that is true, then Maxwell wouldn't be the first on the throne, because the "king" had already been on it. Another thing that is interesting is what Maxwell says in the end of Don't Starve adventure mode, when he is on the nightmare throne... "There wasn't much here when I showed up. Just dust. And the Void. And Them." If there wasn't much but dust and void when Maxwell got to the Don't Starve world, then how did the Ancients get there? Maxwell says they were dead when he got there, but he also says there wasn't much in the world other than dust, void, and them... A bit confusing. Here is just a side note: I noticed a similarity between the shape in the middle of the gateway in the first mural, and one of the phases of the moon. Do you see it? There seems to be something suspicious about the moon. Maxwell only refers to the moon as, the "moon". What could that mean? There seems to be a magical connect between the moon and the Don't Starve world... Anyway these are a few thoughts I've had lately about DS lore. What do you guys think?
  22. I was thinking, what could be the backstory behind some of the characters in don't starve, I'd written some of this like 5 years ago, but I'm posting it now. So what if there was a dreamworld that you can enter temporarily by cooking a mandrake and it will be this vast shattered place that resembles the world they came from. So basically, as you explore you may learn the story of each of the characters. So what i think is that each of them were lured into the shadow realm by Maxwell. Wilson: You find his old laboratory and upon further exploration of it you find evidence of the terrible things he did in the name of science (Details could be found in a log he has of his experiments, feel free to add extremely creepy pictures). His research showed that he was trying to find a way to harness the power of the shadow realm, teleportation, distilling pure nightmare fuel, fabricating living shadows. He put all of his research into a book titled "Codex Umbra". His final experiment went horribly wrong, and unleashed a powerful evil upon the world. Willow: You slowly find burnt bits of wood scattered around until you eventually find this giant burnt down city with a little teddy bear. Upon exploration of the city you find this was her home where she lived with her family and she burnt down the entire city killing everyone. <--This could be done by peiceing together a burnt newspaper. (maxwell is a firefighter on one of the newspapers) Wendy: She had an unbreakable bond with her sister, so unbreakable, not even death could separate them. In the dream scape, Wendy's ghost guides you through the world showing you different important spots, and telling you about them. While she is telling you about how you were playing in the woods, a giant black hand (like the ones that take out camp fires) swipes Abigail away, leaving you alone in a suddenly dark forest. You follow some giant foot prints leading to a well with a flower sitting on the edge. the flower Abigail had in her hair. Wolfgang: He was a brutal wrestler that would often brutally injure people, he also killed his wife. you can find out how brutal of a wrestler he was by peiceing together a newspaper found in one of the shattered cities, but finding out he killed his wife should be difficult. To find out about his wife, you must first find out about how brutal he was in the wrestling ring, and you may find this wrestling Matt with a picture of his wife on it. When you get this it will be with some clues to the location of where he murdered his wife <-- maybe back stage. Anyways, he strangled his wife because his wife wasn't beautiful or something like that. (maxwell is his manager) Woodie: Worked as a logger deep in the forest chopping down trees. He noticed an ominous feeling of being watched one day while cutting down trees during dusk. Then a giant tree uprooted itself and knocked him unconscious. He later woke up as a massive beaver in an endless forest, with an insatiable need for eating trees. One day, it suddenly turned day, and he returned to normal with an axe, but he had no idea where he was, or how he got there, or how to get back to civilization. This story is told through a trail in the woods with a massive treant chasing you. At the end of the trail, you see woodie in beaver form crouched over a dead person. He leaps at you and kills you. Wx-78: In a junk yard, created by young Wilson. "When I started on him, he was just a convoluted art project, I would add pieces to him every day. He started to become my only friend in the world. One day, on a rainy day, I was telling WX-78 about my issues with life, and then suddenly lightning struck him. Sparks flew everywhere, and my ears were ringing and I was completely blinded. But squinting I could see WX-78 glowing brightly... standing... staring straight at me. He went to move towards me, but I quickly ran away." (Wilsons journal found in the junk yard) WX mainly spent the rest of his life scavenging the junkyard for gears to try to maintain himself. He eventually leaves the junk yard, and enters a town. This is when he develops a hate for humans, because the humans throw rocks at him. He returns to the junk yard and begins piecing together a female robot in an attempt to make a friend for himself. Later, as he's animating his companion, humans enter the junkyard in search of junk. He immediately hides in a pile of junk not realizing that he left his creation out. The humans attempt to salvage the spare parts from the companion, he goes berserk, and kills both of the humans. This was too late however, as the humans had already killed the companion, interrupting the animation. (maxwell can be seen driving their car that pulled up to the junk yard) This is told in a junk yard through several flashbacks, maybe told by some talking robot Wickerbottom: Wickerbottom was a school librarian, who also happened to be a famous author. She was known to be notoriously strict for people talking in her library. Students rumored that she once killed a student that wouldn't stop talking and that she never left the library. There is a flashback of her younger days as a happy school librarian, who would help students find their perfect book, and even published children's books. Then one day, a book was returned to the library that wasn't even from the library. This book was titled "Codex Umbra" Wilson. Confused, she brought the book to her study to read it. As soon as she opened the book, she was locked in a trance, unable to stop reading. The book was encoded in strange symbols, but she could still understand it through dark whispers in her head. Days past, until a student entered her study looking to return a book. Confused, he approached the book to close it. As soon as the book was closed, all of the shadows in the room attacked the boy, giving him a lasting fear of darkness and monsters. (wolfgang's past). The boy managed to stop wickerbottom from being consumed by the book, which she promptly threw in the garbage, but she still would never be able to sleep again, and she was still left extremely twisted and wicked. She later learned she could duplicate the symbols she read in the book, having similar powers. Her story is told in a dilapidated version of her school, through several history books. These are the only books not weathered from time. Wes: Wes, the son of the great Maxwell. He had a troubled life, his mother being gone, and his father being a famous magician. His story begins in a spooky house (Think of the uncle's house from series of unfortunate events). When you first enter this house, you'll notice that there are hundreds of balloons on the ceiling. There is a single red balloon that urges you to follow it to tell you the story of wes. Wes had a reasonably normal life, until his father quit his job as a buisness man to become a magician. His first day as a magician, is also the first day wes began having nightmares. To cope with these nightmares, Maxwell gave him a pile of balloons, and taught him to make balloon animals. His nightmares were getting worse, and he began to notice his balloons showing up in impossible places, and seeming to follow him wherever he went. On the day of his fathers disappearance, he was scared to go home. He avoided it for hours, but decided to go inside when it started raining. Upon entering the house, he was immediately surrounded by balloons. When he turned to the door, more balloons moved to block his exit. He tried pushing through, but they pushed back. The balloons begin encasing him, then the flashback ends. At the end of the dream, all of the balloons rush towards the player and kick them out of the dream. Maxwell: Maxwell the great, He used to be a failing business man, and when all hope was lost, he found a book in a garbage can while he was looking for things to scavenge. He read the book, and was instantly compelled to sell everything he had, and to become a magician. His first show started slow, but his ability to manipulate shadows, and create objects from thin air gained him great popularity. In no time, his shows were fully booked, and he was attempting more difficult stunts. He invited a beautiful girl named Charlie to be his assistant in his big show. His biggest show, he would attempt the most daring of stunts of all. He would create a shadow double of himself. This went horribly wrong, unleashing shadowy creatures on everyone in the crowd, and tearing both Maxwell and charlie into two, a shadow, and light form of themselves. Maxwell's shadow form remained in the real world, and banished all those in the crowd, including Maxwell's true form, and charlie to the shadow realm. Maxwell's shadow form then began to banish other souls to the shadow realm (the other characters). This story is told in a large theater with many torn posters. Upon learning the end of the story, the room suddenly darkens, leaving only a faint silhouette of the character, who is then killed by charlie ending the dream. These are all of the characters created during the initial wave of banishments, the other characters come later. I'll also write about them later. Edit: Tell me why I just wrote 1652 words about dont starve lore
  23. The story and lore of don't starve is possibly my favorite aspect of the game. However, out of all playable characters, only Wilson and Maxwell have an in depth backstory that's been shown. So, I wanted to write a backstory and possibly hear your backstories of characters in the universe. Wigfrid Wigfrid grew up in a cabin in the woods, not too far from a small town. Growing up, her father hunted, mostly for game. Sometimes a younger Wigfrid was taken on these journeys and learned the in and outs of hunting. They trudged through the snow and dirt to find elks, deer, and sometimes even bears. On rare occasion she watched her father stand up against a mighty bear with his spear in hand, trying to intimidate the large beast. This would usually end in the bear toppling to the ground, and a new bear skin rug for the cabin. That was until one day, when her father came up against a bear that did not wait to play the intimidation game. The bear swiped at his face, scarring his eye and lip. Her father stabbed it in its chest, but it didn't seem to leave a dent. The bear took another swipe, and Wigfrid's once powerful, bear killing father, was bit back by nature. Wigfrid still remembers the moment where she stood shocked with fear at the sight. No inclination to fight; just shock. She remembers running through the forest, tears streaming down her face, fear overwhelming her. That moment made her promise to herself and to her deceased father: I won't back down from a fight. I won't have fear. As Wigfrid grew into her late teens, she spent her days training in not only hunting, but fighting. Her goal was to find the bear and avenge her father's death, but for years and years, she never found the beast. As time went on, a life of training and hunting for seemingly nothing weighed down on her, and she went into a more calm life. Discovering a nearby theatre, she applied for auditions as a mighty warrior, capable of fighting any foe. Her battle cries and combat skills got her in on day one. She enjoyed theatre, acting out scenes that she wished would happen in her real life. She fought dragons and monsters and whatever was apart of the play. But it wasn't enough. She remembered her goal: avenge her father. It's been years, she is in her mid-twenties. She's been sitting in this theatre growing an acting career. This wasn't her life. And so, she began the hunt again. And she found that bear. And she fought the bear, and she killed the bear. And the bear took off his head and said "Great job today, Wigfrid. We knocked em dead." The whole play was too real for Wigfrid. She started a downward spiral. Years and years of training in her life lead to a mundane acting career. Slumping down in her dressing room chair, Wigfrid looked at a strong, powerful reflection through a faded, dirty mirror. She needed a test of her strength. She needed to show the world that she isn't just an actor, that she is a warrior. Wigfrid slammed the desk and was about to punch the mirror too, until she heard a crackly voice behind her, coming from the radio. "Say, pal, you got a warrior's spirit huh? Why are you wasting your time in this shabby theatre? Say, if you just follow my instructions, you can show everyone all that training you did." I'm not sure if I will continue to write backstories. I also want to see others try this, and I could only really think of this one for Wigfrid.
  24. I played this game during the BETA, long before it was available to everyone on Steam... thus, long before the tons of characters and content, and the purchasable expansion, and before the whole multiplayer thing was even mentioned, let alone thought possible. I was always obsessed with studying and collecting information about a strange world that was exotic, deadly, and unexplored. In the time I've played I've discovered many unique things about quite a few of the characters, creatures, relics, and then some. I thought I'd make this thread simply to put together everything I'd discovered. Other people are also welcome to add things to this thread, but please keep theories and rumors to a low, it would be nice to just have things we have complete certainty on, rather than people making up stuff and then arguing because no side has proof on what is true. So... this thread will have me, and others, posting what has been discovered as fact about the odd dimension the player's character is sucked into, and what exactly is discovered about each character, as well as each form of life and mysterious object found. We might eventually run out of facts, and need to rely on updates as well as things mentioned from Klei. We also may eventually need to make use of even more cryptic methods of learning, such as the rare symbols and letters seen in every trailer Klei makes and hides them in. Hopefully we will spread light on things. And please... if something is a spoiler to a critical part of the storyline and or game progression, make sure that you warn people of it being so and properly make it as such.
