Now that O o o o is DEAD FOREVER, i can share a list of different artworks that O o o o is famous for
Spoiler :
Notable works and exhibits include:

+-"Piles" series

+-Corpse Puppetry - farcical burlesque shows involving the actual preserved bodies of people who have died in tragic, regrettable and preventable ways. Use of dead people as 'found objects' in the most sacrilegous way possible. Has caused multiple outcries over the need for Security of the Dead (more than not in places where the living go unprotected) and a failed assassination attempt against O o o o where the ammo ricocheted and killed the attacker.

+-Why I Joined the Army - an ongoing series involving the distribution of faux-guns which appear real,but when the trigger is pulled, a psychic reading is taken and a speaker in the butt of the gun announces for all to hear a long-term regret of the trigger-puller's life, a midlife crisis, or an insecurity they are trying to cover through this action.

+-Do Not Take This Cruise, It Isn't Enjoyable in Any Way - a luxury cruise that travels in a 5 mile circle until you decide to slowly wade back to shore on a raft. You can explore the ship and other inhabitants, who are high-class, programmed non-AI units that find different ways to belittle you. They also talk about various universal tragedies/crises in a droll, removed way, passing off the deaths of species as something those lower animals had coming. All of the quotes are taken from real people.

+-Constant Goo Machine - This one is just fun. An audience member steps into a box and is Goo'd while others watch. The performance lies in a new explanation for its symbolism being improvised every time, often with two contrasting explanations being given to people in earshot of each other. It really doesn't have any deeper meaning.

O o o o loves to write manifestos, too. They have a porta-printer beamed to their word processor that allows them to print snazy manifestos wherever they go.

I never realized how niche Fortuna really is, until I looked up all the characters on google and found literally nothing. I think Fortuna needs some exposure. All that non-searchable text means zero rank in google search!

Can confirm Wheat was hiding in insultron, who we made canon, thus making wheat canon. Oooo went to go buy something from insultron's store and Wheat bursted out and mauled him.

The whole thing wasn't plot important or anything but it was neat.

I think after some really dedicated googling I found one image of Apollov3 dancing with Artemis

I believe we've seen Glitchy's player AI as well.

So, it's been aknowledged in the narrative that we're aparantly not supposed to be peeping in people's flashbacks. Maybe it's a glitch because of the sun god thing, or perhaps we've somehow already hit max friendship with Helios and this is the hidden power in his patron description. (I've previously assumed that this power murders the living hell out of everything but this could be it too.)

Or maybe it's some kind of deal where if you stare into the patron, the player stares back at you.

Hey... I was formerly DJPantheris. I'm the guy that submitted the Zuid'Tian idea when this adventure first started. I actually had a recent look at them and oh my god was I surprised at what Gime did with them! They've come so far, and I'm delighted with how they turned out, they look amazing and their species description is sweet!

I've come by to say hi again and kinda let everyone know that I want to get involved again.

Would there be any significance to a player-AI piloting a ship?

If I recall we first saw visions of what the AIs were up to when watching some dreams. Maybe it's a glitch?

So I've done the math and we can feed our Pterodactyl(20 rations) even if we can't find any food whatsoever, so long as a number of other conditions are met:

1. The pterodactyl eats both fish (1) and generic(4) rations.
2. The rare frogs are worth their own weight in rations. (weight 5, so 2.5 rations)
3. Cleo's body(weight 6) only has 1 unit of weight or less from the robot arm, and is worth its weight in rations and we give Cleo the mutagen to separate her bug from her body.(6-1=5, so 2.5 rations)
4. Marble is worth her weight in rations and we murder her in her sleep. (weight 20, so 10 rations)

(YOU lost the bet and went out to take pictures of birds:)
Spoiler :
Here's my end of the bargain! I took a walk over to a pond sorta near where I live with a borrowed camera, and there were lots of birds. I know you asked for a bird, not multiple birds, but I couldn't stop at just one.

[Image: hnsnbk.jpg]
This is a robin. They're really common in people's lawns, looking for worms. This one was enjoying a snack.
[Image: rEi6z4.jpg]
[Image: z0UFTR.jpg]
But then it saw me and I felt bad because I interrupted it.

[Image: pPyklc.jpg]
There was another one after that, but it wasn't as colorful. Maybe it's like how aftiks are with different colors. I'm not really a bird expert.

[Image: fGEvH6.jpg]
This a goose. They like to hang in packs around grassy fields near lakes. They hiss at you if you get too close to them and run after you. One time I had a sandwich and a goose charged me and only stopped once I dropped the sandwich behind me...
[Image: aczNWG.jpg]
[Image: G2XZbO.jpg] This one let me get close enough to take a few pictures. Besides, they only hiss at you if you're too close, otherwise, they make honking sounds.

[Image: Q27pcl.jpg]
I don't know what kind of bird this was. It was going too fast to get a good picture and it didn't come out very well.

[Image: qmdcNs.jpg]
This one's a finch. I don't know much about them, but it was tweeting a nice song when I took this picture.

[Image: FH3TYa.jpg][Image: OUvU0j.jpg]
Here's a pair of mallard ducks! They're the kind of water bird I see second most often, behind geese. Instead of hissing or honking, they make quacking sounds.

[Image: oZLYhJ.jpg]
[Image: MlaGT7.jpg]
And here's a dove. One made a nest in a nearby yard once, and you could hear them making "hoo-hoo" sounds in the morning and evening all summer long.

I had a lot of fun with this! I might take some more pictures of different birds at some point if you want me to share more.

Agree with Dorf - these are great 1080p birdies, and I like the final pic the best out of this set!

I always saw the screens like a pokemon party screen but instead of HP it shows Love/Like or Hate.

......But now that you say it like that a dating sim like screen would be amazing.

Fortuna dating sim 2.0. Will Helios win the heart of his student despite his new mammaries, or will Eris swoop in and take the apple of his eye?
