  1. Known victims as of now 2/11/2020: So, right now the only known victims that we have seen are Wilson, Winona, Warly and Maxwell! We all seen these characters experience their time being "Taken" into the constant. An extra character I could add is technically Willow, since she has experienced the supernatural of the constant being chased by a Very real Freaking Terror Beak in the real world as it smashes through the floor boards of the orphanage room. I'll write more to this but anyone have any ideas so far any patterns or clues, besides the fact that the characters names are spelt first with a W for these specific characters?
  2. I have just noticed that their are no merms in Hamlet and why is that? I have a few theories- They are extinct there or at least Wiped out by the pigs on the islands: I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case honestly, but to my guess it was ages ago as no really mentions it my knowledge, and none of them talk about it. Also Wilba doesn't seem to know what a merm even is as she calls them mermaids That or it's just what pigs call them lol The Merms have been exiled: like the first one but a little lighter I guess, Perhaps the merms knew they couldn't win and decided to surrender and were forced to leave the islands, and perhaps are the ones in shipwrecked. Which could the reason why they sometimes run away from you cause they think your like the pigs. they were thanosed out of extence like warbucks lol: yeah- So yeah that's my theroies, especially the last one, feel free to prove me wrong share your theories
  3. Ok, I am on a crazy lore rampage right now, all the new moon stuff has made me go insane. Also, I know I'm like BORDERLINE spamming lore in the chats, but this needs its topic. I need HUGE help on this theory. So please voice your opinion, and help me clean it up or change it. I seriously think I'm on to something. ALSO ALSO Before reading this, realize that some of these character quotes ARE JUST QUOTES. Some of them could be dead false, they are jsut from the character's perspective Alright! So! I found some interesting character quotes based around the moon. Wolfgang: Moon Dial (in Caves)- "Moon is shy in cave!": This goes along with Wendy's future quote, not only is the moon not able to reach the caves, it is shy in the caves Moon Rock Idol- "Hehe. Is funny little moon man." ----> Can't build Celestial Portal (in Caves)- "Is too scary in here for funny man to work.": I Find this a bit weird, as Wolfgang might just be saying the statue looks like a man. Who knows maybe Wolfgang's stupid brain is on to something. Also a person led to this (SEE BELOW) -----> KInda similar don't ya' think? Wickerbottom: Can't build Celestial Portal (in Caves)- "It needs a lunar influence." Webber: Can't build Celestial Portal (in Caves)- "Doesn't work. We probably need to see the moon or something." Wigfrid: Moon Dial (in Caves)- "Mani cannöt see us here.": In mythology, a lunar deity is a God or Goddess associated with or symbolizing the Moon. Mani was the God/Goddess of the moon. Can't build Celestial Portal (in Caves)- "Needs the gaze öf Mani tö wörk." Maxwell: Moon Stone (broken)- "Ruins of an ancient relic.": Interesting, ruins of an Ancient Relic which normally relics come from a previous civilization. Now, what other civilizations do we know about? Ancients, and Humans. That's it, and Maxwell *NEXT QUOTE* Talks about how he thought it was destroyed EONS ago. Now Eons are billions of years, and I don't think the Survivors have been there for eons. So it puts it down to Ancients, OR some other civilization we don't know about. Moon Stone (repaired)- "I had thought these were all destroyed eons ago.": Destroyed by Ancients? Because he doesn't say "I had thought I destroyed all of these eons ago" He said "I had thought these were all destroyed eons ago" Stating HE didn't destroy them someone else did. WHICH IS WEIRD, because he talks about THESE like there is multiple, and multiple were destroyed but one was missed. So why would they destroy them hmm??? Moon Dial (in Caves)- "The cave provides sanctuary from the 'moon's' prying eyes.": Almost like the moon wants down there..... Woodie: Moon Dial (in Caves)- "We're free from the moon's reach down here." WX-78: Moon Dial (in Caves)- "THE MOON CAN'T SEE US HERE" Can't build Celestial Portal (in Caves)- "ERROR: LOGIN REQUIRES MOON VISIBILITY" Wendy: Moon Dial (in Caves)- "Caves. The moon's one weakness.": This one is the most interesting out of all of them. Wendy doesn't say this SEEMS to be the Moon's one weakness, or this MAY be the Moon's one weakness. She is very bleak and to the point. "The Moon's one weakness." Wendy is known for her depressing, but true and straight to the point statements Can't build Celestial Portal (in Caves)- "I can't... not in here." It looks like the Moon wants down in the caves, but can't get down there. Coincidence that the nightmares (Moon's enemy) Is in the one place the moon cannot reach? I think not... It seems that the Moon and you need a direct line of sight with the Moon otherwise it's ineffective. Also, the developers were planning on adding in the working moondial in caves until the new turn of tides...... I wonder why...... Is it possible that the Ancients moved underground because of the Moon? Which is weird because the Moon offers protection..... Wendy: Moon Rock Wall- "The moon... she whispers promises of protection to me.": PROMISES of protection. Like the Moon wants this... This does kind of fight my previous argument with Wolfgang because Wendy calls the Moon a She, while Wolfgang says Funny Man (To be fair Wolfgang is like REALLY stoopid, and he could just be being a stoopid head) Also it could just be Wolfgang's perspective because the idol does look like a man BACK TO THE ANCIENTS POINT: So yes they do "Promise Protection" but I'm assuming the Moon is protecting everyone from nightmare creatures. BUT before the Ancients went underground there were no "Nightmares" (THANKS ANCIENTS) So I think the Moon was a bit mean to the ancients forcing them underground. Like maybe the Ancients used the Moon too much which caused them to have to move??? They are shown to pull oopsies like this underground. Also is it weird that there is a torchbearer that represents light down below? (The Queen) And also a Staffbearer which represents Darkness? And the fact that Moon (give or take) represents light, and nightmare represents dark. Is that why the Queen fought the darkness? Because the Moon KNEW that it was bad? It is all a bit coincidental... IMAGE BELOW: The Ancients moving underground So! That's my theory on the moon early back in the day before Maxwell RULED the world. (QUE IN FALLEN KINGDOM/VIVA LA VIDA) Now an individual did tell me that I'm reading to much into the character quotes, and this honestly REALLY isn't false. But the characters have been right on many things in the past. Maxwell literally ruled over the world. So I understand that some or all of the quotes can be false. Another individual asked me to change the black highlight, and I got you I could be VERY wrong about this, and if you tried..... You could PROBABLY find holes in my theory, but all I have to say is... I REALLY think this is correct. So many things fit in so many places.. So PLEASE voice your opinion on this Theory, I would REALLY appreciate it. Thanks! Also why you confused Sunset Skye? \__("/)__/
  4. We now know quite a lot about merms but there are also new questions that now need answering. So to what we know already: -Merms originate from Gnaw -They are humanoid. It seems that Gnaw can't/doesn't need to turn simple animals like rabbits into fishes -They function like normal animals: they can reproduce (Wurt's existence), evolve (Fishermers in Sw) and develop (own language, monarchy) Now about Gnaw, it's relations with merms and lore of the dst Gnaw appears to be some sort of god/higher being with magical powers. As of now we don't know if Gnaw is only a mouth in the sky or if that mouth actually belongs to something. It sufferms from ethernal hunger and is developed enough to be able to be picky- a hungry beast would simply eat anything. Gnaw travels from land to lands searching from (I assume) humanoid/developed creatures that will feed it. When they fail to do so Gnaw will mermificate them. After an entire civilization is destroyed Gnaw will search for other to terrorize. Now the big question: why does Gnaw turn beings into merms. The merms don't seem to obey Gnaw and so won't feed it. Is this simply the only power that Gnaw has and so it uses it as a way of punishing? Or are merms actually a part of a hive-mind that simply haven't activated yet? Maybe Gnaw is building up and army of merms and when the time comes it will take control of them. So did Gnaw play a big part in the history of dst? Maybe. @QrChuck made an interesting theory that Ancients escaped into the caves because of Gnaw. It could actually make sense as in the Metheus murals we see some sort of circe in the sky as Ancients are leaving the surface. Now I know that Metheus came before the Gorge so Klei might not have actually planned these circles to reseble Gnaw. But that doesn't mean that they can't make that canon. After all we know that caves are able to protect from the dangers of the sky as many characters comment on moon dial in the caves that 'Moon' can't see them here.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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*
  10. 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.
