The True Playground

Everyone can edit this page and anything said here is OC. Feel free to play, interact and post kinda relevant, non-spoiler memes.

Wild speculation

  • The logo is a hint that the time loop is sustained by human sacrifice.
  • Someone accidentally sacrificed the entire week after the banquet, which is why we have to keep re-using this day instead of moving on to the following days.
  • So-called equivalent exchanges are actually negative-sum, and the excess karma passes through the giant creepy door in Fullmetal Alchemist to fuel their positive-sum transmutations.
  • The dung beetle reset the time loop because Caliban almost squished them. They are also an all powerful god.
    • The dung beetle is the player character in a video game, and last midnight was their last checkpoint.
  • Peyton is trapped in a secret box on the Ad Nauseam server and Ivan is not allowed to legally deny or confirm this but it’s true and this is related to the dung beetle.
  • Archmage Nullapretium sacrificed the stability of the entire world in return for a magical utopia. The disaster at the end is the world re-balancing itself.
  • The Tornado is a monster that the Hunters must kill. The Tempus is its child.
  • The Tornado is a bold decision by the GMs to avoid writing any Eternities.

What theme plays as you stare in the mirror at the start of each loop

  • I've got you babe
  • Gotta get up
  • Beethoven's 5th
  • Mamma Mia
  • Trixie: 'Just a Girl', but each loop it gets increasingly distorted

<del>Fig's</del> William's rating of everyone's helpfulness in the final session

  • Caliban – Still suggesting bad ideas. Actively leading civilians away from the plan. 'dOn'T KiLL thE SnAKE.' -7/10
  • Cassandra – Saved every most members of the Sanctuary. Joint MPV. 9.8/10 (minus 0.2 for ghosting your boyfriend)
  • Carneades – MUNKEY. Tried to blow up the caverns (again). Failed many times. 4/10
  • Evie – No idea where she was for half the session. Tried to bully a child? 1/10
  • Fig – Doing Hunter stuff. Got led on a wild goose chase looking for the snake. 8/10
  • Imeptus – Haha, cat-monkey go brrr. Brought more monsters to the city. -3/10
  • Merx – Tried to organise an evacuation. A for effort, C for execution. 7/10

  • Opularia – See Cassandra. Joint MPV. 10/10
  • Porphyr – Barely noticed him, although that was mechanical. Don't drink and explode, kids. 5/10

  • Rennyn – Healer spammer. Spent most of the session asking an NPC if they were alright. 6/10
  • Sophie – Did anything come of those skelebros she spent so long badgering on about? Arguing with those bullying a child. 1/10
  • Tern – Hunter stuff. Tried to clear the caverns but followed the dumb plan of Carneades. 8/10
  • Trixie – Spent the entire session giving a tour to a monster. Simultaneously solved and created the biggest threat to the Sanctuary. Creeps me out. -2/10
  • Wolfgang – Pretty sure this player missed the session but wanted to give an IC reason why their character wasn't there. 0/10

Cassandra Reviews Wishes (In Chronological Order)

  • Glitter- Stop stop get it out get it out why would you do this. Worked on Caliban though. One glitterbomb out of a ruined house
  • Nullapretium Number 1- Caused our current problem, but admittedly did have a long period of keeping a lot of people safe. One Sanctuary out of two
  • Nullapretium Number 2- Turned out to be vital to our survival, which I resent because it was so poorly thought out. Meant we could survive. A reluctant five time loops out of six
  • Opularia- Very nasty and vindictive price, but achieved exactly what it set out to do. Couldn't have survived without it. Pretty Sanctuary too, a fitting magnum opus. One art piece out of many
  • Cassandra- More or less see above, but I was less well prepared. I also feel like I forgot something? Did work though. Many living citizens out of many
  • Demonica- Shook the foundations of the world, but was undeniably spectacular. Cost unclear? One week out of fifty two
