  1. Greetings, this is my explanation to stuff as much scientific as it can be; In this thread I explain Werepigism. Werepigism is a peculiar transformation to Pigmen whenever they are exposed to Full Moon. In Constant Pigmen suffer this ''curse'' while in Hamlet Pigmen ( and Pigwomen ) are completely immune to the ''curse'' with the exception of one particuliar Piggie named Wilba. Why is that? Well... It seems only the family of Pig King is under this ''curse'' but this doesn't seem more like a ''curse'' than a genetic disease- Wilba suffers this disease because Pig King is her Father whom'st was kicked out of the Hamlet Skies by the Queen Malfalfa after she presumably found out that Wilba had a case of Werepigism. Also by observing Wilba we can see that the Werepigism can be cancelled via the Silver necklace which fuels the theory of Werepigism being in genes even more. We can safely assume that Pig King is a carrier of the Werepigism with his Werepigism being a Genotype ( unused gene ) and his offspring ( Pigmen/Wildbores and Wilba ) have it as a Phenotype ( used gene ) but can safely switch it between a Genotype and Phenotype via the Silver Necklace. Werepigism could also be similiar to Schizophrenia: Whereas Werepigism has only Agressive episodes but far more pronouced.
  2. So uh...some of the recent talk about character additions, reworks, ect got me thinking. You know...characters getting ported from DS to DST. Wagstaff being important specifically to the DST lore, the instigator behind why Winona is here, but regardless he hasn't really been used yet. Wagstaff is referred to as a projection in the game files, right? Previously this has been thought to be something along the lines of 'he's back in the real world projecting into the Constant', but... ...there's another person who's used projections pretty extensively. I mean, obviously Wagstaff isn't on the throne; Charlie is. But add to this Wagstaff's rather direct interest in the throne...and what it does... MAXWELLTHRONE = "I've found it! The portal that can link worlds! The throne of ultimate power!!" And of course, he's familiar with portals. He's somewhat interested in the portals in the Constant, as well... TELEPORTATO_BASE = ACTIVE = "An inspired design! I must remember it for building future portals!" GENERIC = "My design is quite similar to this. Though, without those runes..." LOCKED = "Requires a PR-76 tuned to the right frequency." PORTAL_SHIPWRECKED = "A teleportation device! Oh why doesn't it work?!" ...and he certainly has the, er, outlook to take advantage of these things. APORKALYPSE_CLOCK = "Wonderful! I wonder if I could make the world end sooner." But yes. Of particular interest... He's quite the mad scientist, clearly excited to find the Throne. He's a projection in-game...like Maxwell was when he was on the Throne; interesting that despite his interest in the Throne, he can only reach it in original DS as a projection. Someone who likely would've done quite a bit of experimentation with the world we find ourselves in, were he to ever physically take it. He specifically mentions the throne as a 'portal that can link worlds'. I'm led to believe that Wagstaff is 'projecting' from somewhere within the various realms linked to the Constant; he certainly had the means to get there. And that his being a projection earlier in the story, before DST takes place, is intended...for plot reasons. I also believe that he's still around, using the projection. Watching from safety. With those big old googly eyes. ...but why would he wait? What would make a man so close to his dream hold back for all this time? Well... He refers to the throne as a 'portal' that 'links worlds'. But...what use is a portal when it's been shut off? The realms of the Constant have been separated for so long... ...until now. All these new pathways opening up. All these mysteries unraveling... But for what? I've said before that I don't think Charlie quite knows what she's doing. I mean, she's gaining power, sure. That alone fits her more recent personality...but to what narrative end? The possible answer is that this story doesn't end with her. There's no evidence that she saw anyone else who came through that portal before Winona. Particularly...outside of her fits of blind, shadowy fury, she may not have seen a certain scientist familiar with the Fuel slipping through. I think that our Shadow Queen has a little surprise coming for her. I look forward to the utter chaos waiting at the end of these updates, whatever it may be.
  3. 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.
  4. DO NOTE: for this entire theory I am ASSUMING that Wagstaff is one of the upcoming characters to DS, as this seems likely with the information we have been given. This might however, prove to be incorrect. This is a just a quick theory I thought up that explains like... 3 things, but should be a good base for other theory's. We know from the little description included that Wagstaff, or whoever that is, "mysterious inventor who finds himself exactly where he wanted to be". I hear the Constant is a amazing holiday location. Alright, here's what I make of this. Wagstaff discovered something to do with the Constant. This must be a pretty interesting thing, because he wanted to get it. Bad. So much so, that he abandoned his life and fortune to find it. Through some work of science, magic, or divine interference, he finds himself in the DS multiverse-y thing that's connected through the ancient portal. But not in the constant. So, he travels through all the worlds, being mistaken as a gatekeeper by each one, until he finally finds the constant. Not much, but something.
  5. 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.
  6. While in the DST preview comic we saw Wilson building the portal, in the DST new UI, in the tiny words down to the bottom of the screen, more to the right, it says "The Great Maxwell is not responsible for injuries, physical or psychic caused by the portal (something in those words). So, did Maxwell create that portal BEFORE he was sucked by Them into the Don't Starve world? Are the events of DST happening BEFORE DS? Can the portal really damage you? If so, I want a refund, Maxwell! I need more puzzles revealing the game's backstory, like, right now.
  7. This isn't so much lore as it is a theory, a game theory of mine, but I think it still fits here. Feedback is appreciated. Whether it's a simple, "This is good." or, "I disagree with this because (list of legitimate reasons)." But please no, "dis is stupud an ur stupud" ok? No one likes that. From what I can tell of the William Carter puzzles, William accumulated debt and was being threatened by who ever he owed the debt too, perhaps loan sharks. He took a train to California to visit his brother and/or escape the lone sharks. However, before he got there, the train crashed and William went missing. Now let's look at the train wreck a bit closer, shall we? The cause of the wreck was a circus cart that had gotten stuck on the track. It crashed in the middle of the dessert, miles away from any civilization. In the chaos, potentially dangerous monkeys escaped. Because of all this, the only person to go missing (aka, William) was presumed dead. So a train crashes in the middle of the desert and the only person to go missing is the one who's being hunted by loan sharks? Seems a bit too convenient, doesn't it? Now one could look at the Strongman title in the circus poster and think, "It was Wolfgang. He did it, and Maxwell found out so he trapped him in the Don't Starve world." Perhaps, but don't you think if Maxwell found the guy who tried to kill him he would punish him a bit more harshly than the random strangers he's pulled in?Now, who can we think of that was punished harshly? Wes. And in the circus poster, who does the man who's balancing on the elephant look like? Wes. My theory is, the loan sharks caught wind of William trying to ride to California. So they contacted Wes, who ether worked for them or owned a debt, and told him to take care of it. Now Wes at this time was a bit more fit than he is now. You kind of have to be in order to balance on an elephant like that. Thus, he was able to find a way to sabotage the train and make sure William ended up in the desert somewhere. Maxwell found out somehow that Wes was behind it and punished him by trapping him in an invisible box. The box wasn't big enough for him to do anything, but it still kept him alive. Thus, Wes' mental and physical deteriorated to the point where it is now. *bows*
  8. In her letter to Maxwell, Charlie mentions that she's visiting her sister. Who do ya think her sister could be? I have a theory that Charlie could be one of the twins mentioned in Jacks letter. It's just a thought, but Charlie could end up being Williams niece, which would make her Maxwells niece as well.
