Yeah. I based its entire existence on the posters. They're pseudo-entities with the capacity to influence the world.

I was a fool to neglect this. I'm probably gonna need to look into insect races that aren't just Thri-keen for this.

Some kind of arthropod race that isn't more spider people would be nice too. Scorpions* are underrated.

I like the way you think more and more Flan, cause it gets rid off the sycophantic element where you put real people on a fictionalised pedestal.

Hussie was weak, Hussie was a fool. He had the perfect opportunity to have a 4 tailed scorpion lussus with each stinger visually representing the insipid troll romance playing cards in his grasp and he let it slip away.

Most of my ideas that I throw around like hot air I don't even value enough to qualify as the worst of my good ideas. This is only like scraping the surface of the potential that the homestuck dorks could have achieved but instead they focused on literally anything that wasn't the most embarassing shit.

If you can't be bothered to commit to drawing your cool ideas, saving your disposeable income to commission artists who are insanely good at drawing arthropods and probably nothing else is usually what most people default to.

Pshhh do it badly if you like the idea enough. No artist ever got any good results immediately.

Speaking of which I wanna draw up visuals of 1-2 classes that harness Etheric Type, gotta be something sufficiently fruity looking for my standards.

Why do I imagine one of them ending up looking like Exeggutor?

There's a force/energy that permeates all of Hawkspace called the Etheric Type. Concentrations of the Etheric Type can vary between regions. The Etheric Type has the capacity to manipulate the surroundings and physical laws somewhat by its composition. By harnessing this energy, one can make miracles happen from their very hands, but the Etheric Type itself is conscious and instead of being harnessed and manipulated, it often controls conscious beings and make them act as their agents. The Etheric Type is not directly evil, but is aligned to the goals of its agents. The Etheric Type's connection to an agent is unfortunately volatile and can easily evaporate like exposed rubbing alcohol.

Because Space Hawk and Time Eagle both never sleep while travelling through a timeless, aspatial void they need a middleman to do the sleeping for them. So they got this gross naked Homunculus to literally absorb all their sleep deprivation and eternally just snooze. This also means that all his dreams are the Hawks and Eagles dreams too, and they come to live in the form of all kinds of weird junk, from magic artefacts that disappear to horrid monsters to new islands.

I figured the naked sleepy mans bad dreams would be this settings equivalent to Neutral Evil Outsiders, not quite Yugoloths/Daemons but drawing from the same principles of causing indiscriminate evil. They'd be a diverse bunch and limited only by the observant imagination of the Time Eagle who does not always catch all the details of the Hawkspace islands it glances upon. The Space Hawk only ponders about shitposting on a computer, so his dreams are more goofy. When SpaceHawk dream creatures come about they are predisposed towards Chaotic Neutrality but there is nothing to stop an alignment shift in their nature, because as Chaotic beings they have more capacity towards free will. Consequently these dream creatures are slaves to their whims if they choose to commit to a purely Chaotic lifestyle.

It should be noted that despite the alignment of both the "Hawk-Eagle nightmares" (place holder name for the NE Outsiders) and the CN dream creatures. Both the Space Hawk and Time Eagle are True Neutral, concerned only with each other as spouses tend to be. Both the birds would occupy the rank of Overdeity, they never, ever interfere in each others business otherwise it would completely jeopardise all of reality as we know it. It is unknown whether other beings besides the Eagle and Hawk exist in the void but not outside of possibility.

Hmm, now to think of some lower ranking deity pantheons for the Hawkspace islands, there's probably going to be a lot. So go hogwild I guess.
Something clicked in my head. Etheric Type is the residual dream energy of the "Dreamer" constantly leaking out. What doesn't get used up in the conversion of dream objects and dream creatures to a material state of being can and will leak out to purposelessly wander the worlds. Etheric Type wants to make your dreams come true because it is literally dreams that didn't come true.
