Greed is quickly losing their 'most powerful/only person who knows what's happening' status and they're gonna be a b*tch about it.

@LadyMysterio, just in case the link in my last post didn't work, this is the DT!

Also, I finally posted. Elem's definitely getting overwhelmed by all of the new kinds of people showing up at The Tavern. :P

You're welcome, @LadyMysterio! I'm glad my explanation made sense, but definitely let me know if you have any questions about roleplaying! I'd be happy to answer them for you. <3

And that's really cool! Elem's not from my NaNo novel, but he's from the novel I'm planning on writing after NaNo is over.

This wasn't really clear so I feel like I should clarify: The threads/fabric of reality is something that can only be seen by beings that were born through the collective imaginings and beliefs of the Base Earth. Basically, of the people here, only Greed can see them because only Greed has that hyper-specific backstory. They're invisible. Literally the basic foundational 'threads' of the universe.

The same goes for the effects the other characters have on those threads. Greed often uses the effect a person has on the threads of reality to determine how foreign they are to whatever universe they're in. If they belong there, they'll mesh seamlessly, obviously, but if they don't, the threads will get agitated and strained as they try to make them fit.

The whole system is really complicated and I spent 3 hours trying to explain it to a friend last night so if you want more detail you can ask for it but I won't guarantee I'll be able to paint the whole picture.

TLDR: Only Greed can see the 'threads' or the 'fabric' of reality because that's an ability born of a very specific backstory involving the creation of the multiverse and all that jazzy jazz.

Oh gosh...that is very clear to me because it is scarily similar to mine...Harry and Jennifer, along with four others in my Universe, are the only ones who can see that fabric pf reality because they were kinda responsible for providing the energy to create it and shape it in the first place...insert a backstory I haven't even attempted to explain to anyone...:)

Anyways Greed and others like them sound like a very cool concept. :)

@TheMulticoloredCyr, I'm also grateful for the clarification! I was assuming that something like that was the case from the posts you've made so far, but the extra explanation definitely helped.

Also, I love how many similarities there are between the characters. This is definitely an interesting cast to write with!

(By the way, feel free to have your characters notice Elem in their posts! I know he seems boring just from his appearance and his actions, but I'd love for him to interact with the other characters more. He needs some friends. <3)

I was gonna have zillah notice Elem but then some winged demons showed up. Greed was right, winged ppl do tend to steal the spotlight.
He's next tho!

They really do - even Elem noticed them first! :P

But I can't wait to see Zillah notice Elem. He's going to be so flustered the moment she starts trying to talk to him. :)

Posted! I love how Zillah apparently is a protector of children - Elem could certainly usually someone like that in his life. :)

Greed straight up makes a pigeon joke about the flock of winged patrons to their faces and gets blank stares in return

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.
— Brené Brown
