Mlem, by Myeth


Firmament is an illustrated adventure, starring a peculiar young Soul on their journey through the afterlife and beyond.

In the wake of some lively chat on Discord, I figure a dedicated discussion thread for the adventure couldn't hurt. This is just such a thread! Feel free to leave out-of-character commentary, theorize about the setting or characters, berate me for my bold and questionable storytelling decisions, and so on. You can also ask for clarification on the story or events, drop questions about me and my process, or whatever, and I'll answer what I can!

Since this is a collaborative storytelling and world-building effort at heart, I'm trying not to nail down details in advance as much as possible... so don't expect spoilers out of me! Also, if you want to discuss recent things you think may be Spoilery, please Remember Your Manners and put 'em in Spoiler Tags!

Thanks a bundle for reading!

Aww heck, that's my first ET Fanart, Myeth. It's going in the OP. I shall treasure this mlem!

P.S. Though I cannot spoil important plot points, Skateboard-based speculation is also A-OK. Perhaps, with your help, Rainbow can find their true calling as freshest ghostworm in them celestial spheres.

So hey ghost fans, I admit to having a terrible habit of including meta bits, codes, and other secrets in my adventures. Only a few in this one so far, and nothing extravagant... but anyone at least found the hidden text in a few updates?

Just idly curious. Wanna make sure I'm making 'em at least noticeable enough.

Do you mean the white text? I've noticed that.

The hidden link to the tricked threat was a nice easter egg.
Quiet. Good for an unusual opinion. Doesn't talk much.

All I've really "noticed" is that Marlowe calls us by our U(ser)ID number instead of our display names. To anyone who is able to "listen in" to us, we're numbered but not named (which is probably best since a lot of us are affecting personalities or quirks that are not our own).

I saw the hidden text, but didn't realize there was more stuff hidden.

After seeing what's posted here, though, I found the tricked thread link. Clever.

Are the birdpeople a reference to OneShot or just a coincidence?
Noot noot doot doot.

I've not gotten far enough in OneShot to meet Birdpeeps yet, so not intentional. Are they irresponsible birdnerds too?

But I can say that Firmament shares a setting with my earlier adventure, Ashwood Cross, as well as a few other projects that aren't public yet. Earthlike animal folks are just a thing in the setting, and individuals are varying degrees of Animal and Folk. Cassie's just in the inconvenient position of happening to have wings for arms. Makes participating in a school for human-shaped bipeds kinda hard.

They aren’t really a ‘nerd’ type and they’re responsible (save for Alula) and also there’s these two called Alula and Calumus and they are a good big part of the plot. You’ll find the bird people in the Glen.
Noot noot doot doot.
