    they are small and soft like the meat-folk, but much greener and a little smaller. you think they are probably also made of meat.

    you begin to pull the goblin apart. you really don't understand how these meat-things function with all these different kinds of meat. the pieces of meat you pull from his midsection are of different shapes and colors, as opposed to the unity and solidity of your own body.

    the goblin is already quite dead, and frankly you don't see the appeal in a meat body when you could have the solidity of stone. however, as you once suspected, buried under the meat is a body of stone, made of noble calcium.

    you strip away all the meat, leaving only the stone frame it was hanging on. unfortunately this leaves the pieces separated, so you bind them together with shards from your own body. as your shards begin to vibrate the calcium stone, the goblin's frame picks itself up off the ground.

    now that you know about how much these goblins weigh, it is trivial for you to feel the vibrations of their feet through the earth and track them to their lair. your new stone friend follows along, and speaks of matters philosophical to you. you would engage him in friendly debate, but as his views are very much in line with yours there is little to discuss. this is not surprising as he was until recently a part of your glorious crystalline form.

    the goblins live within a grand and noble cave, and while you can appreciate this sentiment, you have decided it is time to separate the meat from the inner stone. the goblins attempt to resist, but their tiny pieces of metal do little more than scratch your glorious form.


    you set to work liberating and bringing to life the inner stone of these goblins. you feel that they are much happier this way.

    with the ore you've found, you create two such creatures.

    Your new friends gathered and repairs complete, you ask the stone-men to lead you to the nearest of these great and mighty works of stone. They tell you that while they have never been there themselves, they know the way, and that it lies many weeks of travel away for a meat-man. Fortunately, bereft of meat, you will be able to move without rest towards your destination.


    You find it hard to speak to the inner stones without first binding to them, and such a binding invariably forces your own persona upon them. Unlike the houses, which have awakened to a degree, the inner stone of the meat-folk seems to be completely silent until forcefully awakened.

    The only conclusion you can draw from this - as absurd as it seems - is that the meat-folk don't actually think with their stone.


    We've been in this town for at least a generation, and have seen the meat-folk die from all sorts of things. Even beings of stone may die if their structure is sufficiently destroyed, such as by being ground into fine sand or by being melted into a much less solid state.

    An excellent suggestion - if nothing else this should prevent further damage to the more frail golblems and stone-men.

    You feel about for the shape of the inner stone, and find some buried in the land nearby. Unlike the freshly liberated stones, these have some rudimentary awareness - likely from having been buried for so long (what clever thinking on the part of the meat-men). Most of them are content to rest, as they feel is their purpose, but you do manage to convince one set of stone to join your cause.

    His stones are buried deepest of all, but by asking the earth politely, his form floats to the surface of the dirt.

    Your binding on this one is less influential than the others - while his bones are now fused by your crystal, his persona remains intact. As is proper and just.

    (And we'll probably be stopping here)

    To recap, our current circle of friends consists of:
    13 golblems
    7 new stone-men
    1 elder stone-man
    2 large ore golems, iron-plated
    3 smaller ore golems

    We'll continue this later, in the meantime, how the hell do we go about archiving this?

    but... would truly Water use stone to give stability, when stability is the antithesis of Water?
    Perhaps the Meat is using the Water just as it is using the Stone?

    Alright! Thanks for my daily dose of epic, /tg/ :) I really look forward to picking this up again tomorrow.

    OP, could you call the next thread "Golem Quest," and use another crystal related picture?

    very intrigued in what our elder stone-man friend has to say. hopefully i wont miss the new thread tomorrow.

    So what philosophies have we actually set up?

    Stone/Crystal is the purest form of life. stable, patient and beautiful

    Water is it's antithesis, shifting and chaotic

    Meatmen seem to be a fusion of the two, confirmed they do not think with stone, uncertain if they think with water.

    Trees are weird rapists/psychotics, possibly due to their water cores

    anything else?

    ((In the absence of outside influence, stone seems to take on the personality of the task it is set to. Houses enjoy providing shelter, bones want to remain buried, the mountain wants to be cohesive and stay put, etc.))

    Good gents of /tg/, worry not. As it is with /jp/, every thread of yours is being archived.

    The mountains have an agenda man. All that shifting and reforming...plate tectonics, volcanism or otherwise. they're planning something...
