Don't Starve Together

  1. Don't Starve Shipwreck has Rawling, a mysterious ball you can find in far ocean if you explore enough which talks (like Lucy). The best part is you can throw the ball and have fun (+1 sanity)! Playing a ball is totally a Together thing, so it would be so awesome for Wilson to bring his Wilson (ehem, Rawling)* to the Constant, organize his fellow Survivors, and make the surviving a little more enjoyable. Imagine we can even do Volleyball matches or something. * Rawling is Wilson, you know.
  2. Wilson, being a Gentleman Scientist, having experience experimenting with blood and animals etc., should be able to do deal with the Disease situation in DST. Disease in DST is very annoying to deal with properly, and is outright disabled in most megabase Worlds. With Wilson being able to remedy this, Disease as a proper game mechanic will only get stronger. p.s. This is just too on topic for the global situation for it to not happen. p.p.s. Wilson had better healing powers in The Forge; maybe he can do the same for plants, too!
  3. Wurt and Wortox are both monsters that originate from the Constant, but there are obvious differences between them and their brethren. Most importantly, Charlie will kill them. It makes sense with characters like Webber, WX, and Wormwood, who don't belong in the Constant (I mean, Wormwood is from the Moon, but it seems like the Moon is at odds with Charlie). Even pigs and Merms are aware of Charlie, but they don't get attacked by her. What changed for Wortox and Wurt when they became survivors? I have a theory that Wurt is the first merm who was born a merm, as opposed to being transformed by the Gnaw. She seems a bit more self-aware than the others and has this idea of greatness, whereas the others have lost their minds when they were afflicted. Wortox... I guess he rejected the idea of the Constant? Not entirely sure. Any theories? Don't get me wrong, I'm really glad that the Charlie thing stays in, because it's almost as integral to the game as starving itself, but I'm just curious how they are different from the merms and krampuses.
  4. Will there be more canon maps added to Hot Lava in the future? I mean I know these things take time to make but the last few (major??) updates have just been showing off the best workshop maps. Don't get me wrong, they're good and Klei propabbly have more in the works with lore included but I have to wonder what type of location the next lot of canon maps will be in. And still eagerly awaiting the next GAT short.
  5. So I've already shared this theory with my other DS/T friends, but has anyone else noticed the uncanny amount of similarities and... coincidences between Webber and Wilson? Does anyone else find it convenient that Webber's father just so happened to be a gentlemanly, bearded scientist? Why would Wilson have such a weird, seemingly random tendency towards parental behaviors? (Bonus points to his Very Specific fixation on babies) I wonder what sorts of things a father might say if, for all he knew, his only child had been lost or killed, never to be seen again, on account of being spirited away from home? Oh. Well, if there was no body to be found, they'd never have gotten a proper funeral, would they? Let's move on. Ever notice how they share a disproportionate amount of similar examination quotes? To the point where some of them are almost verbatim? There's a lot. A looooooot. And sure, you can argue that I'm reaching for some of these, but a lot of them are almost impossible to tell apart without either knowing them on your own, or without Webber using plural pronouns for themselves. Moving along, though, Webber and Wilson both seem pretty nostalgic about the farm houses. Looks a little familiar, I'd say. Worth noting that Wilson has a Literal Headstone in front of his house. Sure, it looks a little rickety and handmade, but what do you even grieve to when your son's body was never found? Then there's this: Which kinda speaks for itself. Then there's a few final similarities. I mean it sounds funny but they both grow beards. They're both arguably the easiest characters to unlock in their respective games, with Wilson being the default character in the vanilla game and Webber being significantly easier than Wigfrid to unlock, unless you've already got a lot of EXP. I mean, sure, Wilson never explicitly makes it known nor clear that he used to be a father, that's true enough. But why would he be the only one to recognize Webber's skull as a child's? Would you want to regularly talk about the loss of your only child? And hey, it took SEVEN YEARS for Wendy to be confirmed as Maxwell's niece, about anything's possible. And it would at least partially explain why Wilson was such an asocial hermit living in a shack in the woods who became desperate enough to listen to a talking radio. One last thing to point out is that every other person who has canonically been on the Nightmare Throne has had at least one family member in the Constant. Maxwell/Wendy, Charlie/Winona. Just all very convenient.
  6. I'm fairly certain that Walter found Woodie's cabin. I've gone through Woodie's quotes, and a few of them line up with that image. For starters, Woodie mentions hanging antlers on his wall when he examines Wortox and No-eyed deer. We can see some sort of animal head mounted on the wall just off screen in the image. Also, Woodie never had a radio. He contacted Maxwell through the gramophone like Warly. This would mean that it can't be Woodie's house, can it? I think that the radio was placed there by someone else. It looks out of place in the cabin. Everything else in the cabin is decrepit and old, with cobwebs and weathering. But the radio is in good shape.
  7. Hello! I am here today to discuss a very important(potential) plot hole in the Don't Starve timeline. When examining a tent, Willow will say the line "I got all the badges in Girl Scouts." This line ruins the game for me, and I hope it will ruin the game for you, as well. From Willow's short cinematic, we see that she is haunted by nightmare creatures in the waking world, even as child. This leaves us with a few questions. To begin, we know that Maxwell was dragged into the constant in 1906. We currently do not know what happened in between 1906 and 1910, but around 1910 Maxwell begins to bring in the survivors we know today. If Willow is being attacked by nightmare creatures as a child, does that imply she is a child in (at least) 1906? Or perhaps just when William Carter (Maxwell) found the Codex Umbra, in 1904. if not, then that leaves us with the information that Willow was being attacked by the shadows before Maxwell even found them. This is a puzzling situation, but no matter the answer, here lies the problem. The Girl Scouts did not exist prior to 1912. On March 12, 1912, in Savanna, Georgia, Julliette Gordon Low founded what is now known as the Girl Scouts of The United States of America. If we assume that Willow is 20 years old at the absolute minimum, as a source I am not willing to refind seemed to suggest that she was in her mid-20s(Note this is years ago, and could be retconned or simply not true by this point), she would most likely have to be as old as at least 12, assuming she was captured by Maxwell in 1920 (Wilson is the last person to be captured, and he was captured in 1921. It is possible she was also captured in that year, though personally i find that unlikely. This, of course, assumes that Willow was a member of the girl scouts upon it's first year of it's founding. While my current research has turned up inconclusive about whether or Girl Scouts used a badge system for the original 18 girls, it is not impossible. It is, of course, unlikely, because the earliest reports of a badge system being used I could find was in this source (https://www.gshom.org/content/dam/girlscouts-gshom/documents/badges/Windows to the Past 1912 to 1919.pdf). Badges were added later in 1913 (http://www.vintagegirlscout.com/badge101.html), but let's assume that Willow joined the Girl Scouts in 1912, when it was founded in Georgia, as one of the original 18 at 12 years old, and began working on badges the moment they had become introduced. We know Willow was an orphan, and she was likely rather poor after she burnt the orphanage down. That would make several of these badges particularly hard to acquire, such as Cyclist (which requires that you own a bicycle), and Flyer, which requires you to have flown AN AIRPLANE 25 YARDS. Willow notes that "Music is boring" if you examine a pan flute, which does not mean she could not have acquired the Musician badge, but it something to note. Also of note, she notes that she "likes more exciting music" when examining the phonograph. Well, which is it, Willow? We know she is able to tie knots, because she mentions that in her rope inspect. There is nothing to imply that Willow has not learned to fire a rifle, which I think is rather funny. When inspecting a Zeb, she says" Are horses supposed to only have two legs?" Despite Zebs clearly being Zebras, not horses, this implies she has never seen a real horse before, something she would have had to do to earn both the "Ambulance" badge and the "Horsemanship" badge.. Perhaps, though, she was merely joking. To herself. She also hates baths, and thus the "Health" badge would require her to take many. But she could have endured things she hated. She also cannot create honey poultices without use of an Alchemy Engine, and creating poultices is something one must do to earn the "Child Nurse" badge. However, one badge seems like it would be impossible to acquire. The "Swimmer" badge. Upon a boat breaking in Don't Starve Together, Willow will say "I'm gonna drown!" and then proceed to. While some bring up the fact that the shadows pull you down, this is not true for Don't Starve Together. In fact, one character, Wurt, actually CAN swim, and because of this, suffers less penalty from both jumping into the ocean and having a boat break merely causes Wurt to wash up on the shore, with dialogue implying that she has swam to safety. There is a possible argument that this only happens not because Wurt can swim, but merely because she has gills. So perhaps, even if Willow could swim, it's her lack of water breathing that could make her drown from the boat. Except that wouldn't matter, because she still can't obtain the swimmer badge. In that badge's description, it says you "Requirements or examination must be sent to parents of candidate for permission." What does this mean? Well, even if the timeline is just perfect enough where it's possible that Willow was in the girl scouts when it was founded... Willow couldn't have obtained all the Girl Scout badges because she is an orphan. (If I made any mistakes, feel free to call it out in the replies!)
  8. My own conclusion: Everything is a spiritual repeat of DS storyline. Fuelweaver is big Maxwell and Metheus is big Charlie. Fuel made choice to indulge into fuel and everyone paid for it, thus Fuel calls for metheus, and Maxwell for Charlie before they die, the fuelweaver is on our side in the same way Maxwell is. When he claimed he was wrong for killing you, that was because he realized, right before returning to his sleep "Metheus isn't here, uh oh." Because to him,You were being saved; he was preventing you from jumping into the deeper pits of hell. Metheus betrayed him. (pause) being punished for too much curiousity is a theme in this game, Charlie regretting her tampering with Maxwell's room, Wagstaff who took science a bit too far, Wilson fooled by a promise of discovery, Winona with her conspiracy theories and portal tapestry. This is a list of every character we have seen pulled into the constant. Other than that, we have no reason to think everyone else wasn't taken in the same way. Charlie is even described as curious in DS's ARG, by the job description from Maxwell and an image file name. (unpause) Charlie and Metheus are the bad guys, Charlie is the lesser of the two. Thus they combine. Did survivors screw up killing fuelweaver? Going around seeking more and more power, indulging into killing to conquer the Constant. Maybe not, if Fuelweaver is so upset that Metheus is gone, maybe the only hope left is to continue the path and fix the relations of them, otherwise meeting defeat to Metheus/Charlie There it is, this is the furthest I can guess because it obviously falls into a split: Good Ending (Kings) Bad Ending (Queens) ... Blunderbuss is Wrong Ending (NOOOO!)
  9. Alright, so when adventure mode ends Maxwell dies but then when the Cyclum Puzzle starts, he's alive and not a demon guy. his super black magic stuff doesn't work anymore! I got no idea what happened for Maxwell to end up back in the constant, but I am pretty sure it happened during Charlie's rule (right? cause if he ever met up w/ Wilson it must have been after Wilson was released from the throne, by Charlie). Right, and then when adventure mode ends, you return to your original world as Maxwell. (anyone else get kinda creeped out by this?) His quote upon switching w/ Wilson, "Freedom at last!", wouldn't make sense whatsoever if he were simply put back in the cruddy wilderness he does not appear to like or even understand, right? Singleplayer or together are scattered with "Don't you recognize me?" or "Woah what's that, why would that be there?! I didn't make that!" type examinations respectively. also, I think it's very safe to say that the game makes a lot of story exceptions for the sake of being a story, vice versa. I'm very confident that Maxwell intended to sucker Wilson onto the throne, not only that, I think Maxwell went back to the real world and was somehow taken back to the Constant after exiting through Wilson's (might I remind you, still standing) portal. It would make sense, right? I also think the other "survivors" died and came back through the portal, so I thought it might be worth mentioning that he has a survivor skin on, and that he is also shown killing clockworks in the (I believe) doorway to adventure update video. (fun fact: strange new powers has some extremely short blurbs of letters that can be arranged to spell NOTHING SPECIAL twice, there is also a random, all lower case "bit.", I don't know if anyone else has also painstakingly found those, but I wasted my time on that yesterday) I ALSO want to point out that the portal was "jury rigged" and there was a blueprint Wilson found to make one. This could relate to a large range of creators between Maxwell (I REALLY doubt it) Wagstaff (I REALLY THINK IT WAS HIS) and Them or something like think (I doubt this too!). I think this could really explain Wagstaff's role in the plot a lot more, and his obvious enthusiasm for portals. His inspection quotes hint that he DOES know a lot about how portals can be made, but not enough to create a complete one. He even makes like a dozen comments expressing his desire to communicate Maxwell, which would make sense since Maxwell's knowledge is what helped Wilson get the portal truly working. I also would like to mention that there is a VERY GOOD CHANCE that Wagstaff entered the consant before Wilson. And side note, Webber too, since Wilson literally finds his skull and digs him a grave in RoG, because he deserved a "proper funeral". (if Webber is even canon but... cmon.) I also think Wolfgang was teleported before Wilson too, but sort of a hunch. Wes too, (duuh) I don't even think he is canon though, or he doesn't play a notable role in the story. I think the characters that will relate to the story we might get more knowledge about will be: Mactusk (others have said he MIGHT be Maxwell's old boss, or other people he knows.) Woodie (haha probably not actually but he has a missing poster in Next of Kin so I guess maybe?) Wickerbottom (New York Library burned down in Next of Kin newspaper, plus rework stuff.) There are a few things that throw this stuff off, inspections for Maxwell on ghosts, skeletons, pipspooks (also wanted to mention, those three words "I'm so sorry." could make me cry.) but that could be another mystery entirely. Just how many people have been brought over? I also think that time is messed up a lot when it comes to what year/day someone came to the Constant, so I am ignoring Winona's entrance compared to Wagstaff's entrance, or maybe return? I don't know. Please share some more thoughts! Side note on the Wagstaff thing, it also helps that Wagstaff might have been added to highlight his existence beyond an extremely old 'on the fly announcement' a lot of us haven't seen.
  10. First off- I said I wasn’t going to make anymore threads throughout 2020, I know that but.. I am and I have, And with my whole town being pretty much on lockdown due to Virus concerns I’ve had plenty of time to sit and theorize about this. First off you can find the original Discussion about this where I brought it up here: in Minespatchs thread asking Klei to create a comic explaining the origins of Woodies new found Transformation Idols. Now that JoeW said that I could create a new thread to discuss other potential Woodie lore & Theories I would like to do just exactly that, Only this time Instead of just a big wall of Text I would like to provide gifs from various sources as well as in-game images to support my Theory. In Minespatchs Thread I stated that we didn’t actually NEED a comic detailing the origins of Woodies Idols because the Origins can be as simple as items LUCY his Red Talking Axe whispered into his ear to Create & also use. This would certainly not be the FIRST Time a Don't Starve character listened to Advice from outside of their own thoughts and opinions, Observed here in GIF 1- Wilson is having second thoughts about pulling this lever but does so anyway. In the second photo, This is Woodie Examining his Werebeaver Idol In-Game. Some Forum goers have brought up the suggestion that Lucy doesn’t actually talk and that it’s all in Woodies head, there is a Quote in the game that supports this Theory that provides homage to the horror movie classic the Shining.. The Quote in the Game is written as “All work and No play makes me want to chop trees” the Actual Movie scene Quote is “All work and no play makes jack a dull boy” This is a moment in the film where the main character starts to spiral into insanity and types that exact quote for hundreds of pages into his type writer. As seen in the second GiF provided below. Is this Klei’s way of hinting that Woodie is crazy and it’s all in his head like the shinings Jack? I’m about to debunk that suggestion Completely by providing some pretty hard to dismiss facts. First off Lucy doesn’t just TALK to Woodie she talks to Non-Woodie characters, and straight up refuses to let them pick her up.. which would Imply that Lucy has her own identity and is not just something made up in Woodies own head.. Maxwell even has a Quote that implies he’s known Lucy for quite sometime. However... it is clear that Lucy DOES manifest some sort of Super Natural powers or control over Woodie because as seen in his Animated short even with 3 powerful transformations at his disposal Woodie gets pummeled into the ground within in an inch of his life and left defeated with obviously some broken bones.. Once he reaches out and grabs hold of Lucy he quickly recovers from all Injuries like he’s Superman and disposed of his Foe. Lastly It is extremely obvious that Lucy is its own Soul or entity rather.. and LUCY is Woodies REAL Curse, not his Transformation Idols... Because No Matter How Many Normal Axes Woodie Creates as soon he attempts to chop wood with it Lucy swaps places with the regular axe. (also do keep in mind that in Solo DS, Chopping too much wood using Lucy was what triggers his curse to begin with) As seen in the following Gif of me crafting lots of regular axes, attempting to use them and then dropping them as soon as they turn into Lucy for a new one. And finally in the last Gif does Lucy swapping places with that regular Axe remind you guys of anything at all? Wortox SOUL Hopping maybe?? So in Conclusion: If LUCY has her own SOUL and is its own entity & is NOT something made up and completely in Woodies own head.. then is it really unreasonable to believe that LUCY told Woodie how to create the Transformation Idols & use them? Woodie wouldn’t second guess his beloved Axe Lucy! I just wish Wortox’s Quote For examining Lucy was a little more helpful in supporting this Theory. It could be something like: “Lucy is an Axe with a Soul & Chopping stuff is her goal!” Please feel free to share your own thoughts about this! Thanks.
  11. I am too tired to look more rn but I want to start the topic anyway. I was looking at some stuff about license plates to see if that connected to the ingame trinket and noticed, "oh, hey, the numbers on license plates are for when they were made!" I have zero idea what type of license plate has 5 digits, but the in-game license plate says AYX-28. Ig thatd be 1928. If you dont know, theres been a bunch of discussions about a license plate trinket because of different character examination quotes. Was wondering if anyone could think of anything new, or if my idea was something new.
  12. Obviously, there is quite a lot of lore to unpack from the recent Wendy short. I'm still doing research to figure out what happened afterwards, but I think I've nailed down Abigail's death and what happened prior to what we see in the short. As with my previous threads, I'll present the pieces of the puzzle and then put them together at the end; feel free to skip whichever sections don't interest you, but keep in mind that some of the points I bring up at the end might make no sense without that context. For anyone who hasn't watched the Wendy short yet, please take a few minutes to watch the whole thing. Aside from just being an emotional rollercoaster of an animation, it has a couple of details that are important for this theory. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ozRwX35fHE The William Carter Puzzles So as with most lore puzzles, you have to make sure the old matches the new. So I decided to go back to the old William Carter puzzles from 2013, the same puzzles that established a connection between Wendy and Maxwell. So, just really briefly for those who aren't caught up in the lore, in the 3rd puzzle, you can see a post card from Jack Carter referencing his mother who "hasn't met the twins yet". Many have already pointed out that this is in reference to Wendy and Abigail, and both this puzzle and the short show that Jack Carter is Wendy and Abigail's caretaker and possibly father. However, what the 3rd puzzle also tells us is that Jack dislikes the urban setting: "the city was too much for me, so I've gone west - It really is amazing out here - maybe you could visit sometime?" This sentiment is consistent with the setting we see in the Wendy short; an isolated abode on top of a cliff. In the 4th puzzle, however, we see a reply from William (Maxwell's real name for those who aren't aware) after the mysterious train crash that started William's descent into madness. The thing to note here is the address on the right of the letter: Jack Carter, 33, 4th St, Corona, CA 91720. What this tells us is that Jack Carter and his family lived in the city of Corona, CA within the Riverside County at the time of the incident. Keep this address in mind because it is the single most important piece of evidence in this theory. The Wendy Short For those who didn't notice, during the scene where Abigail trips and falls over the cliff (safely into a bush), you can hear the sound of a car tire screeching as Abigail falls in slow motion. Another thing to note is the setting itself. As I previously pointed out, it's in an isolated rural setting which is consistent with Jack Carter's disdain for the urban setting from the 3rd puzzle. However, what's also worth pointing out is the background. The house is situated on a cliff overseeing a large body of water with a likewise large island in the distance. With the addition of the Wendy short came a Klei announcement where a snapshot of Wendy's belongings (not unlike the William Carter puzzles) was shared. While there are a ton of noteworthy things in this picture, the main one I want to focus on is the date presented in Wendy's diary: April 16th, 1914. Real-World Research and Analysis So with all of the game info on the table, I started off by looking at the address; not just the city, but the actual address. For those who aren't aware, the ZIP code is basically a mailing address for your local post office, but the code is also tied to the delivery routes from the post office. Because those routes can move around, the ZIP code can change as well. I bring this up because the address in the 3rd puzzle technically does not exist with the given ZIP code. HOWEVER, it does exist with a different ZIP code. I feel like whoever made the William Carter puzzles was absolutely aware of this because within the same postcard in the 3rd William Carter puzzle, Jack says, "The post is dreadfully inconsistent out here". Anyways, the picture below shows the location of Corona, California. It's a city located in Southern California, southeast of Los Angeles. Here is the city of Corona itself. Finally, here is the actual present-day location of Jack Carter's residence at the time of the train incident in the 4th puzzle. I will come back to this in just a bit. For now, let me provide a brief summary of the relevant parts of Corona's history. This is why I said earlier that the only thing from the Wendy snapshot that I wanted to focus on was the date: April 16th, 1914. While the specific date seems irrelevant, the TIME FRAME that the date fits within seems interesting. Corona was actually called South Riverside before 1896; it was renamed Corona after the Grand Boulevard was built. The Grand Boulevard is a beltway (i.e. a road or series of roads that go in a circle) well-known for being almost perfectly circular. The Grand Boulevard is the EXACT SAME circular road that you see on the map right above this paragraph. At some point after this road was built, the city wanted the whole world to know who they were, so they hosted international car races using the Grand Boulevard. They ended up hosting 3 races, with one on September 9th, 1913; another on November 26th, 1914; and the last one on April 8th, 1916. While extremely popular, these races were a nuisance to many nearby residents who disliked the fans who left trash on their yard, not to mention the car noises. A vague, minor accident supposedly occurred during the 1st race, but a major accident occurred during the 3rd race that took the life of one of the drivers, his mechanic, and a security guard while injuring 5 spectators, resulting in the termination of all future Corona Road Races. As you can see, April 16th, 1914 fits within the races' time frame, specifically after the 1st race and before the 2nd. Clearly, these road races are involved in Abigail's death, and if you put all of this information in context, it explains why Klei decided to choose something as "random" as a car sound effect during a serious supposedly-life-threatening moment in the animated short. All of this also explains why Jack and Wendy are living on a cliff in the middle of nowhere; they are no longer in Corona, and both of them have every reason to not be in Corona. You can see from the map above that there is absolutely no large body of water within the vicinity, so we know for sure that wherever Jack and Wendy are in the animated short, it isn't 33 4th St. This brings me back to one of the first pieces of info that I brought up in this thread, which was the setting. It's clear that the house is situated on a cliff, but judging by the flora in the area and the large islands that are unusually close to the coast, I think it's very likely that the body of water in the animated short is a lake. I used the satellite option on Google maps to look at some of the lakes in and near Corona based on the criteria that there has to be islands in the lake AND that the lake has to be large enough for you to see the horizon. The best candidate I could find was Lake Mathews. So to reiterate: 1) Abigail's death is tied to the Corona road race of 1913. I suspect it's an indirect cause, however, since the real-life deaths and major injuries took place in the 3rd race, not the 1st 2) The timing of Wendy's diary entry makes sense if this is true, being only 7 months after the road race 3) This theory is consistent with what little we know about Jack Carter's personal views 4) This theory explains the random car sound effect in the animated short AND the relevance of the date in Wendy's diary 5) Jack Carter's Corona, CA address being located within the Grand Boulevard circle of all places isn't much of a coincidence anymore So, with all of the information and analysis out of the way, this is my interpretation of Abigail's tragedy based on the info I covered in this thread. Jack Carter, a man who enjoys the simple quiet life out in the countryside, decided to move West and eventually settle down in Corona, California with his twin daughters to get away from the bustling noisy city of New York. Unfortunately, he chose one of the worst possible countryside spots to live in, not knowing that the automobile craze would be exceptionally popular within the Grand Boulevard beltway; the same beltway that he's smack-dab in the middle of. 7 years pass after the 1906 San Francisco "Earthquake" that took William and Charlie from our world. Jack is getting a bit annoyed with all the car noises going on in the neighborhood and all the car fanatics leaving trash on his yard; it kind of reminds him of the urban hell hole of New York. One of his daughters, Abigail, on the other hand, feels the complete opposite. Some time within the period of the big Corona road race spectacle, Abigail, being the happy-go-lucky, carefree child she is, decided to play with Wendy on the Grand Boulevard belt line much like how she played around with the edge of the cliff. Unlike that cliff, however, there was nothing to protect her from a rush of automobile fans in their death machines coming from outside the city. Seeing what the city has done to his family, Jack decided to leave Corona behind and settle for a lake house. Also, sorry for the bad title; the joke was probably too soon, but hopefully all of you are doing okay. Wash your hands with soap, especially under the nails. It's 9 in the morning, and I don't have the processing power right now to come up with a better title nor the will to prolong this since the last time I prolonged a large thread, all the pictures got corrupted. Anyways, that's all I got. Let me know if there's any information that I missed or any information already covered that could viably be interpreted in another way.

  13. Well, i noticed some lore topics around but i feel kinda lost looking at'em. I'll leave here some infomations and i'd love if someone that know of information or things that connect to them could explain here each one of them. First: Wendy Cinematic (wish you were here) If you skip to the 0:45 time of the video, you can see that when she falls, Abigail makes noise from cars, claiming that a car crash caused the tragedy. Second: Abigail's name. As we can see in the image, Abigail is called Abigail Lillian Carter. Third: Probably Wendy's Diary? Leaving a note about Abigail. Fourth: I'll leave the rest of the images here, but the questions remain: Who are these? Who is the man on the poster? Who used the book of spiritualism? Who does this room belong to? And please, someone answer who is that mustache Maxwell. Tell me everything you guys know about and use this space to also theorize, if possible!
  14. Up until a few months ago, the DS lore was a very simple timeline that went something like this: -Prequel stuff happens -Max and Charlie sucked in -Stuff happens -Non-Wilson characters are sucked in -Voxila fire -Wilson is sucked in -Adventure mode -Charlie boots Wilson off the throne -Wilson and Max team up, DST starts -Winona enters sometime after everyone else -Ancient gateway is discovered, events start. And now the DS timeline looks like this: -Prequel stuff happens -Max and Charlie sucked in -Stuff happens -Non-Wilson characters are sucked in -Voxila fire, Winona and Wagstaff are sucked in. The most confusing thing is that queen Charlie appears, even though Maxwell is on the throne at this point? -Wilson is sucked in -Adventure mode -Charlie boots Wilson off the throne. -Wilson and Max team up, DST starts -Winona enters the constant..........? -Ancient gateway is discovered, events start. -Wortox -Return of Them happens, meaning Wilson and co now have plot amour or are in two places at once. -Wormwood and Warly. Things we don't have a time for: -SW and Hamlet, must occur before ROT. -DS Wagstaff, must occur before he's sucked in. If someone can please explain to me how this works, that would be highly appreciated.
  15. Things weren't always like this. A long, long time ago, before the ancients, before them, before the gateway, when times where simpler. Once upon a time evil looking guy in a suit sucked a mad scientist through a portal and tricked him into imprisoning himself. Ah, the good old days. OHMYGOD THE MOONS AN ALIEN OR SOMETHING AND THERES A MULTIVERSE AND A ANCIENT RACE OF BUG PEOPLE AND SOME OTHER ANCIENT RACE PULLING THE STRINGS BUT THERE ARE ALSO ROBOTS AND NOW SHIPWRECKEDS CANON SO DOES THAT MEAN THERES SOME OVERLAP BETWEEN WORLDS AND CHARLIES ALSO DOING SOMETHING WITH THE BLACK GOOP FROM ALIEN. How things have escalated. Now, as you may have noticed things have also gotten more complex. A lot more complex. We can't just have a stylish game with a creepy vibe anymore, we have a detailed mythos. If someone asked me when DS lore reached its peak, I would say around when Maxwells backstory was revealed. The world was still mysterious, but we knew everything to just get a glimpse of a bigger story. And that was all we needed.
  16. 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.
  17. 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 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
  19. 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?
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. SPOILER now all of us who have defeated the might adventure mode have heard of them..the being(s) behind the scene some say they are the shadow creatures...thats what they want you to think, some say charlie others say its a union but here..the secret will be revealed but first lets get some facts, first off the 3rd tip is "don't talk to strangers" in the DS trailer what does DS remind you of? the DS which is a remade gameboy, the 3rd character is a boy as of now who eats a lot to get strong, which so happens in real life what is also in real life? Hallucinations, what is addicting? Drugs, what else is addicting? Don't Starve, now the 3rd most dangerous drug causes hallucinations and hunger of which are in this game which can only mean one thing...Don't starves lord known as Them are real they are in our world. but how does this relate to 3 you might ask. well thats what they want you to think. to think i am a madman, but there is so much more that needs answering, no this is a story we don't just cannibalise half a guy then leave the rest to rot! this has to happen fully. now them's name and who they are shall be revealed now for they are..it's all piny! now we can combat this threat! knowing what they are we CAN win, now all we need is time before we can combat an army of gods who seek to destroy us, good thing were all buddies, like two bullets in a mag! to peas in a pod! two cannibal midgets in a fat guys ribcage!
  24. Welcome to my new art/lore thread! I don't really have a life, and I'm always on the computer, my eyes are burning, purple, and saggy, I get frequent head-aches, and I'm fat, so I thought: "Hey, I'm not that bad of an artist, and I need something to do other than play games, so why not draw and write? (Also exercise more)?" I'm gonna leave this thread for about an hour, and when I come back, I'll draw whatever you guys have suggested/requested. SO DON'T BE AFRAID TO SUGGEST AND REQUEST THINGS!!!! For instance: "Hey HoneyHam!! You should do Krampus next!" "OKAY I'M ON IT MAN." *Half an hour later* [PICTURE] KRAMPUS IS A DEMON-GOAT THING THAT STEALS YOUR STUFF IF YOU KILL TOO MUCH STUFF AND HE'S ACTUALLY A FOLKLORE THINGY IN SOME OTHER COUNTRY!!! Soooo.... Ummm..... YEAH!!! ART/LORE THREAD THING!!!! Rules: I will draw whatever you guys suggest/request. Please no de-railing. You can leave suggestions, comment on stuff, and do a teeny bit of off-topic stuff, but no going into a 3-page conversation about who the heck invented milk and why. SO GET READY FOR SOME SPESHUL ART.
