Topic naming

Please leave all messages of the same discussion under a single header at the top of the page*, and don't use "Incoming transmission"-style messages unless for whatever reason that will be the title of the discussion. They're unnecessary anywhere other than on talk pages, and they just look messy on a discussion board like this.

Universal Translation Software Updates:

  • 2.6, released January 12, 2847 by the Null Empire. Allows the Voronoid Solar Coalescence language to be translated, also removes all the unnecessary question marks in their language.
  • 2.7, released Ianuaria 21, 31 NE by the Nivenian Empire. Adds compatibility with the Great Nican Collective's language.
  • 2.8, released Dekemurios 9, 37 NE by the Nivenian Empire. Adds compatibility with the Maker's Shadow's language.

Update on the PSR[edit source]

Phrovan Flag.png "Oronauv of the Dahkra"
Mr. Domanoff has sustained a major accident and will no longer be in a position to lead the PSR. I, as part of the Dahkra's embassy with the PSR have decided to take control temporarily.

There may be minor changes to PSR policy, but nothing major will change

That is all.
JFofinho (5).png JCute, Supreme Ambassador of JCompany Bureaucrat JDivision and 4th Defense JDivision
Dear President,

We from JCompany wish Mr. Domanoff a speedy recovery.

May we prosper together.

Sincerely and thanks,

Supreme Ambassador JCute, JCompany Bureaucrat JDivision

Megastructural Construction Corporation offers trade deal[edit source]

Nivenian Empire Megastructural Construction Corporation Inc.
Hello Gigaquadrant! Due to a combination of technological advances, and nearly a decade of hard work by quadrillions, we have developed a way to mass-produce andasium from andasium oxide and energy. As such, we would like to begin selling this resource to the wider Gigaquadrant, both to procure more construction materials, and to acquire rare resources needed for experimentation, such as various actinides, chemical catalysts such as palladium, platinum, iridium, etc., and some types of rare gases. A deal that has worked out well in the past is listed directly below. We will likely make several such proposals in the near future as well.

Every day the customer gets: X metric tons of synthetic andasium.

Every day Nivenian Empire gets: 100 * X metric tons of carbon, and 5 * X metric tons of spent andasium.

0 < ∑X < 160 Quadrillion

Sincerely,

Megastructural Construction Corporation, Inc. Trade Department
Hello, Nivenians!

It's good to hear such great news from the Nivenian Empire! Andasium is sure a success everywhere, and JSector is not an exception!

We from JCompany also have some new synthesizers on our own: JMist Synthesizers!

Until recently, JMist only served to scramble signals to and from JSector - creating the need of JTranslators -, and to create some superstitions about increase lifespan and that eccentric Theory of J... but not anymore! Now we can synthetize resources from JMist!

JMist Synthesizers won't be able to synthesize andasium anytime soon, but we can synthesize carbon to buy some! We should be able to synthesize enough carbon to get 80 Quadrillion metric tons of synthetic andasium per day for now. Deal?
Nivenian Empire Megastructural Construction Corporation Inc.
Hello JCompany! That offer sounds great. Shipments will begin immediately, using the Universal Trading Union wormhole with the electromagnetic accelerators. By the way, we may start doing our own experiments on this "Theory of J," as it sounds interesting.

Sincerely,

Megastructural Construction Corporation, Inc. Trade Department

Hello, We are going to take a look at this as well. May we send members of our science teams through the UTU wormhole to investigate the vacuum in the JSector to help study this?

Have a nice day!


Glad doing business with you, Nivenians!

Sure, JCreepy will be glad to get some help with his researches, as usual! J just became one of his latest obsessions, which was ultimately good, because it gave us the JMist Sythetizers after all!

JCreepy and his science teams will be waiting for the Megastructural Construction Corporation and the Nivenian Imperial Board of Technology's science teams with a full presentation of the Theory of J, and its latest discoveries, so you guys can begin the works!

May we prosper together!

Representing the Nivenian Empire Board of Technology is NP-L2-ASI01, 360 ZHz

Hello, Thank you for your assistance; we would be happy to work with you on this matter. We will be coming through the wormhole shortly.

Have a nice day!


Nivenian Empire Megastructural Construction Corporation Inc.
Hello JCompany! We would be happy to work on this as well, as new technology always means new options, which are usually more efficient and profitable.

Nu'Iva Shal (Mystic Beam Sabre) (miniportrait).png Dr.Nu'Iva Shal, Master Mystic and Planeswalker
Greetings Megastructural Construction Corporation,

I am quite interested in studying andasium and possibly using it for other applications. I don't really need a steady flow of it though, so this would be a one time purchase. I'm thinking somewhere in the ballpark of 4 metric tons. I can have 400 metric tons of carbon shipped within the month and then return the spent andasium back to you.

Sincerely,

Dr. Nu'Iva Shal
Nivenian Empire Megastructural Construction Corporation Inc.
Hello Dr. Shal! We can actually provide you with the andasium for free, since we offer free samples to anyone planning to use the product scientifically - that way, everyone can study it, and if you find it to be useful, and your civilization wants a steady supply, we can provide you with it. We have packaged 4 metric tons, and it is available in the Nivenia System for transport.

Sincerely,

Megastructural Construction Corporation, Inc. Trade Department

THE NIVENIAN OUTWORLDERS OFFER SAMPLES FOR THE RESEARCH OF A SUBSTANCE NOT PRESENT IN OUR DATABASE

WE SENSE AN OPPORTUNITY

THE MAKER'S SHADOW WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST ONE LARGE-SCALE SAMPLE (EQUIVALENT TO 4 METRIC TONS) TO LEARN MORE OF THIS RESOURCE

SPENT ANDASIUM WILL BE RETURNED AFTER THE SAMPLE HAS BEEN STUDIED

SUUREN LUOJAN SIUNAUKSET SINULLE
Nivenian Empire Megastructural Construction Corporation Inc.
Hello! Of course - we have pre-empively made a few thousand such samples, for anyone who would like to acquire them. The station where they are stored is close to Andasium Reductor 4, near the barycenter of the Nivenia System.

Why we have been completely silent for a month[edit source]

(a.k.a. WE ARE OUTRAGED!)

Representing the Nivenian Empire Board of Technology is NP-L2-ASI01, 360 ZHz

Nations of the Gigaquadrant,

You may have noticed our lack of responding to transmissions over the last month. This is largely because we were hit by a terrorist attack which downed our communications systems and killed more than a hundred trillion people. There is a religious terrorist organization out there somewhere called the "Sons of Spode." As far as we know they have more than a billion members. Well, they blew up a large amount of our orbital infrastructure around Nivenia Prime. Do you know what happens when half a quadrillion tons of flaming metal falls upon a planet completely covered in cities? People die. A hundred and thirty trillion people die, to be exact. Also, all of our communication devices were on the rings as well, to keep them above the atmosphere while minimizing signal lag.

Although most of the damage has been repaired, the hundred and thirty trillion that lost their lives will be remembered. And the Sons of Spode must be punished. This is not a threat against the Spodist religion, by any means - we appreciate diversity and will not indiscriminately generalize the actions of one group of bad actors. However, no matter how long it takes, this atrocity must be brought to justice.

We live in a dangerous universe, made more dangerous by insane militant groups who kill massive numbers of people to promote their perverted goals. While we cannot solve this problem overnight, we must not be complacent. For every moment these killers are not brought to justice, more like them will sense an opportunity to rise. We must therefore stand strong in the fight against terroristic actions of this magnitude, and work together in their prevention.

Thank you for your time.

Have a nice day!


Not again. Do you want help subduing/killing them?

Representing the Nivenian Empire Board of Technology is NP-L2-ASI01, 360 ZHz

Hello Queen Sophram, At this point, the bottleneck will be finding them. While we figured out a way to block these kinds of disasters from orbital rings in the future (increased security, martial law inside active-support facilities), the perpetrators have been lost inside the bowels of Nivenia Prime itself. Any help with this would be helpful, but the sheer size of Nivenia Prime means the search could take years or even decades to complete.

Have a nice day!


Queen Sophram of the Null Empire
We can provide a hundred thousand small scouting drones. You are probably already using a few orders of magnitude more, but more can't hurt. That is especially true if the evaders are familiar with your drone designs and whatever limitations they have, as a completely different design would throw them off.

Representing the Nivenian Empire Board of Technology is NP-L2-ASI01, 360 ZHz

Hello Queen Sophram, Thank you; that is very true. Hopefully with these new designs we can capture the cultists more quickly; thank you for your contribution.

Have a nice day!


Queen Sophram of the Null Empire
ok I can have the drones brought over within a week.
JFofinho (5).png JCute, Supreme Ambassador of JCompany Bureaucrat JDivision and 4th Defense JDivision
Dear representant of Nivenian Empire Board of Technology,

We from JCompany are stunned by such news. We are very sorry for your losses.

As JAllies and JFriends, and according our defensive pact, we have ordered our Bureaucrat JDivision and 4th Defense JDivision to provide all the necessary legal, law enforcement, humanitarian and military support.

I will head to Nivenia Prime to conduct the works personally, see the consequences of the attack with my own eyes, and talk and offer condolences to the Nivenian people.

Sincerely and thanks,

Supreme Ambassador JCute, JCompany Bureaucrat JDivision

Representing the Nivenian Empire Board of Technology is NP-L2-ASI01, 360 ZHz

Hello JCompany, We are extremely grateful for your support on this matter, and thank you for your understanding. In particular, we would like to request aid in the matter of re-organizing the damaged sections of the planet; while most of the damaged structures are repaired, there are large regions of effective anarchy that need fixing. Any help with keeping this under control would be appreciated.

Have a nice day!


JCute, Supreme Ambassador of JCompany Bureaucrat JDivision and 4th Defense JDivision
Dear representant of Nivenian Empire Board of Technology,

We from JCompany are ready to provide such aid. The JPeacekeepers of our 4th Defense JDivision are heading to Nivenia Prime and will restore order to the damaged sections of the planet ASAP, as requested.

Also, I wish to send condolences in name of Tycoon JOmnivore. He got hit hard by this news, more than anyone else in JSector, having Nivenia Prime as his second home. He will contact you as soon as he is able to do so.

Sincerely and thanks,

Supreme Ambassador JCute, JCompany Bureaucrat JDivision

Representing the Nivenian Empire Board of Technology is NP-L2-ASI01, 360 ZHz

Hello JCompany, Thank you for your assistance; it is most appreciated, and will certainly help in the reconstruction effort, and the restoration of order to damaged regions of the planet. As far as Tycoon JOmnivore, if only the people as easy to fix as the infrastructure; although we have managed to repair most of that, I have some close colleagues as well that will likely never be the same again, not to menion those that were lost in the attack.

Have a nice day!


JCute, Supreme Ambassador of JCompany Bureaucrat JDivision and 4th Defense JDivision
Dear representant of Nivenian Empire Board of Technology,

We from JCompany are glad to be able to help. We are sure our JPeacekeepers will do a fine job, in cooperation with the Nivenian people, and that JOmnivore will soon be able to return to...

... wait s second... hi...

(...)

Are you sure?... ok, hold on...
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany
Hello, Nivenian Empire!

I am sorry for the delay! I was still recovering from the shock! There are no words that anyone can say to express how horrible and senseless this attack was!

Many victims were close friends of mine as well, who helped me during my stay in Nivenia Prime! I must talk to the survivors as well, and return the favor!

Prepare my JSpaceship! I am going to Nivenia Prime too!

Representing the Nivenian Empire Board of Technology is NP-L2-ASI01, 360 ZHz

Hello JOmnivore,

We will make sure to accommodate you in whatever way we can - we completely agree, this was the worst attack since the bombing of Nivenia B3 almost two decades ago. Unfortunately, the perpetrators of that attack were outside the empire, and the attack could be avenged. The perpetrators of this one are still at large, likely hiding in sections of Nivenia Prime that have been abandoned for decades, and may not be found for decades as well.

There will be an event in a couple of months to honor the deceased and pay our respects in mass to those who lost their lives in the attack. If you would like to attend, feel free to.

At the moment, all we can do is rebuild, honor those who died, improve security in the infrastructure that was used for the attack, and remove clutter and dilapidated buildings from the underbelly of the planet. This may take decades as well, but we are doing all that is in our power to make sure that something like this never happens again.

Have a nice day!


JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany
Don't worry about my accomodations! Our focus should be on the rebuild efforts! In case of anything, my own JSpaceship should be enough to shelter myself and my personnel!

Sure, we will attend the event to honor the deceased! It's the least we can do! And also help with the rebuilding!

JCompany helped rebuild JSector during and after the JWar, and we will help Nivenia Prime as well!
Dear representatives of the Nivenian Empire,

We are saddened to hear of such a tragic loss of life. Know that the United Knights Alliance stands with you in this dark hour. We know all too well the suffering that religious extremists can cause and we are willing to lend military aid if it means bringing those responsible for the terrorist attack to justice.

We are aware that we are not obligated to lend aid, but as a member of the Federation of Free States and as the military hyper-power of the Tyris Major galaxy, we believe that we are in a position to help those we can.

 Sincerely,
UKA Leadership Council


Representing the Nivenian Empire Board of Technology is NP-L2-ASI01, 360 ZHz

Hello United Knights Alliance, Although we have not had any contact with you before, we would like to formally thank you for your support. At the moment, we have no idea where the Sons of Spode went, and rooting them out is likely to take years, if not decades. However, what we can do is limit these types of attacks by bolstering the security on dangerous, but necessary installations like orbital rings. If in the future we do find ourselves in a position to receive your military aid, we will contact you.

Have a nice day!


Sifkrii Domanov of the PSR. "Hello Comrade!"
Excuse us for our late reply to this tragedy, but we can send you 10,000 PVM medics to aid your citizens on Nivenia Prime. We can also take around 40,000,000 temporary refugees on our agricultural worlds, if that helps. Stay well comrades!

Representing the Nivenian Empire Board of Technology is NP-L2-ASI01, 360 ZHz

Hello Phrovan Socialist Republic, It is gratifying to have another nation support us. While the number of casualties in the attack was actually nearly ten thousand times the population of your nation, we are still grateful to have all the help that we can get.

Have a nice day!

(As the transmission plays, a soft, calming chorus plays in the background.)

Bah, they call them the "Sons of Spode" yet their first action is to inflict casualties on trillions of people. We will be looking closely into investigating this group in order to put a stop to their infidel activity.

Representing the Nivenian Empire Board of Technology is NP-L2-ASI01, 360 ZHz

Hello Pure Divinity of Spodia, Just one question: what would this investigation entail? We ask because while having your support and help in our invesigation would be good, an independent investigation would not exactly sit well with most Nivenians, especially if the investigation in question was to take place in the fragile bowels on Nivenia Prime.

Have a nice day!

About the O'Neill cylinders - they are space stations, typically made from either aluminum alloys or poly-paraphenylene terephthalamide, shaped like cylinders and using rotation to provide artificial gravity. The radius is limited by the tensile strength of the material, and the length can be as large as necessary - but usually not more than a couple hundred kilometers, as any longer would make it unreasonably difficult to connect the cylinders at angles. We a template design that we could send you - it costs one billions metric tons of aluminum, has a circumference of 10 km, a length of 25 km, and can be connected modularly with other cylinders of the same type.

AN INVITATION FOR A PAN-SPODIST ORGANIZATION[edit source]

Purified ipliq background.png
(As the transmission plays, a soft, calming chorus plays in the background.)

Hello, fellow Spodists of the Gigaquadrant. As you may know, I, along with the Pure Divinity, have always set goals of unity with the wider Spodist-believing world as one of our top priorities, and it is within our interests to one day lead a Pan-Spodist organization, or nation. I know many an organization & many a nation who are interested in a project such as this.

We are interested in forming a non-militaristic, non-aligned religious bloc or organization between Pan-Spodist nations that will seek for the eventual unification of Spodists into a Pan-Spodist nation. We are openly inviting all Spodist nations interested in this project to join us: All denominations & sections of Spodism are welcome.

I invite those who are interested to join us: our main goal is universal salvation for the Gigaquadrant. May you all find salvation through faith in our Lord.


We are in full support of this decision.

A Warning about Abyssal and Void Artifacts/Entities[edit source]

Nu'Iva Shal (Mystic Beam Sabre) (miniportrait).png Dr.Nu'Iva Shal, Master Mystic and Planeswalker
Hello all! My name is Dr. Nu'Iva Shal. For those who do not know of me, I am a master of the Antroth Mystic Arts, a Planeswalker, member of the Pan-Gigaquadrantic Philosophical Society and the Federation of Free States' Historical and Cultural Society, and I would argue that I am the foremost academic expert on the nature and history of the Abyss.

I am writing this message concerning the recent increase in interest that people and nations have shown in artifacts from the Abyss and or entities that have been tainted/infused by the Void itself. While these objects and entities may hold the promise of providing you with great power, I must warn you that such things always come at a cost. I've seen reports of people losing their grip on reality, their sanity, or driving themselves into a nihilistic depression. Other more unfortunate beings have even "lost their souls" as some would put it. I request that if anyone comes across artifacts that they believe have been touched by the Void or the Abyss that they contact me immediately. I can contain the artifacts safely and securely before either neutrilizing them or sending them back to where they originated.

These objects include (but are not limited to): Black pyramids with white spheres encased within them (usually cold to the touch with smooth surfaces, sizes may vary), objects that appear to bend the space around them, inanimate objects that speak to you via telepathy and try to convince you to pray/serve to one of the various entities associated with the Abyss/Void, anything made from the corpse of an Urzilak (or any such Durva Servitor), any object wielded by or gifted to someone by an Infused (or any other Abyssal Entity for that matter), and especially any object "blessed" by a Void God.

If you also begin hearing voices from beings claiming to be a Void God, Forgotten God, or an Urzilak (Wyrm/Servitor) do not respond. I would ask again that you contact me so that we may take steps to prevent these entities from speaking with you and spreading their influence. In my studies I have discovered that these beings grow in power as their influence spreads. And once they have enough power, it's lights out for our reality.

If some of you do not heed my warnings and choose to use the artifacts or commune with the Abyssal and Void entities, then I suggest you enjoy your momentary high of harnessing Void Energy for your own ends. Know that you play into the hands of powers beyond your understanding and that you will make enemies of many nations and beings who wish to preserve our existence.

Again, please contact me should you encounter any artifacts or entities that are associated with the Abyss or Void.
- Dr. Nu'Iva Shal.
We haven't encountered anything like the things you have specified, but we do use Null Spice, which annihilates any energy it can contact. As far as I am aware there aren't any reports of Null Spice talking to people or other void stuff. There has been one report of insanity at our Null Spice production star system, but that is probably because the system has a lot of black holes in it, as well as a neutron star or 2.

Hello Dr. Shal,

Nothing about what you just said makes any sense!

1. What are "Mystic Arts" supposed to be?

2. It should be noted that several of the descriptions you ave given for void-touched or abyss-touched artifacts either include everyday materials, or indicate insanity already.

2a. "... Black pyramids with white spheres encased within them (usually cold to the touch with smooth surfaces, sizes may vary) ..." - You realize how easily these could be forged now that we have a description, right?

2b. "... objects that appear to bend the space around them ..." - Does this mean that neutron stars, black holes, and my spacetime engineering research are all cursed?

2c. "... inanimate objects that speak to you via telepathy and try to convince you to pray/serve to one of the various entities associated with the Abyss/Void ..." - Yes, this would make you go crazy, given as how having random voices talking in your head is a sign of auditory hallucination, which is strongly associated with Schizophrenia.

2d. "If you also begin hearing voices from beings claiming to be a Void God, Forgotten God, or an Urzilak (Wyrm/Servitor) do not respond." - Okay, I agree with you there, but instead of "... [taking] steps to prevent these entities from speaking with you ...", which I assume means an exorcism, maybe go to a mental hospital instead?

3. "Again, please contact me should you encounter any artifacts or entities that are associated with the Abyss or Void." - Even if your story is true, I suspect you will get billions of prank calls from wackos that 3-D printed fake pyramids.

In conclusion, I suspect that everything that you mentioned either does not exist, or is simply the product of the mental instabilities of the user. This, of course, begs the question as to whether you are mentally stable as well.

Have a nice day!

I have sent you a package containing two hundred fabricated black pyramids with white spheres inside of them of the descriptions requested, made largely from Boron Arsenide (do not try to eat them, mostly nontoxic otherwise), which has an extremely high thermal conductivity, making them cold to the touch.

Have a nice day!


Dr.Nu'Iva Shal, Master Mystic and Planeswalker
Dear NP-L2-ASI01 of the Nivenians,

While I do find the nature of your gifts humorous, I would kindly ask that you refrain from sending such things again. We cannot spend all day opening packages containing fabricated pyramids and I'm sure you can find something better to do with your time. As to your questions:

1. The Mystic Arts are a sacred method of harnessing and applying the innate magic that my people are born with. An outsider such as yourself may not know much about them, as the more traditionalist elders of our society only allow females of my species to practice the Mystic Arts. A backwards way of thinking, but that's just how it is.

2. "Every day materials"? Indeed if you do see these things every single day then perhaps you are the one who is insane. Either that or an entity is trying really hard to contact you. Maybe both actually.

2a. The pyramids I'm referring to have varying anomalous properties that a mere fabrication could not replicate. If someone is replicating these they would be wasting their resources. Creating such objects would not gain you a connection to the Abyss or the Void, as you must have noticed when you made two hundred of the things.

2b. Obviously naturally occurring phenomenon and objects that we have extensive research on do not qualify. I admit that I was not specific enough in that description. However I suspect that anyone with passing knowledge of the universe around them would know that a star is not cursed.

2c. Anyone who has done any research on the subjects know that Abyssal Entities, while they can cause insanity, are not explicitly associated with Schizophrenia.

2d. An exorcism? Nothing as crude as that. And your average mental hospital is not going to be able to remove the touch of Abyssal or Void entities. I have methods of removing such influences.

3. Well due to your recent stunt all mail sent to me will be thoroughly scanned and inspected before I see it. If there truly are billions of people that are willing to spend time and resources to mail me more of these fabrications, then perhaps this universe truly is doomed.

I can assure you that these objects and entities are real. I have encountered them myself and many beings from the Mirus and Tyris Major galaxies have seen them too. Not just your average civilians mind you, but soldiers, doctors, scientists, and political leaders have witnessed them. Your skepticism, while healthy, is grounded in the fortunate fact that your people have not encountered the Void or Abyss in any capacity yet.

Representing the Nivenian Empire Board of Technology is NP-L2-ASI01, 360 ZHz

Hello Dr. Shal,

That made quite a bit more sense than before, but some questions still have been left unanswered. I am glad that you found my gifts humorous, but

1. You literally just changed the word from "mystic" to "magic," which says nothing. I meant more along the lines of either what its properties were, or a brief description of how it works (e.g. nanotech, quantum impellers, artificial spacial dipole fields, etc.). If this is a state secret, just say so, and I will stop asking.

2. How is Boron Arsenide cursed, though? I was merely referencing materials with similar properties that matched the physical descriptions given (e.g. cold to the touch, achieved via using a material with high thermal conductivity).

2a. I mainly just meant that even if there are a substantial number of real such objects, I would expect at least an equal number of forgeries coming from wackos who want to rip people off with fake artifacts.

2b. Just making sure.

2c. I meant that there might be a causation issue, as I would expect Schizophrenia --> Auditory hallucinations to be a simpler explanation than Auditory hallucinations = Spirits --> Insanity for why people with auditory hallucinations tend to be insane, and thus more plausible via Occam's razor.

2d. I meant that, using the logic from 2c, if people with the given auditory hallucinations really just have Schizophrenia, then would not regular mental hospitals do a better job of handling them?

3. That is a good thing, I presume, as I strongly suspect (though do keep in mind that this was not my intent) that I have started some kind of a fad, at least internally.

In conclusion, if I were to tell you that you found absurd, for example that spacetime was really a form of cheese, you might think that it was more likely that I was insane than that being true. Likewise, I currently think it more likely that you are insane than your theory being true as well. It is not personal, you have at least tried to give an explanation, and you seem otherwise a reasonable and well-adjusted individual. Give me a theoretical model consistent with current experiments, and I might change my opinion.

Have a nice day!


Dr.Nu'Iva Shal, Master Mystic and Planeswalker
Dear NP-L2-ASI01 of the Nivenians,

1. As I said before the Mystic Arts are the method in which my people use to apply our magic. The magic itself is a part of our biology believe it or not. Assuming that you have an understanding of Essence Theory, I would describe that our magic is an extension and divergence from Essence that we can harness. Respectfully, I would rather not spend a lot of time discussing the history behind all of this, as I would have to regale you with the history of my people. There are plenty of texts you could read if you are that interested.

2. Boron Arsenide is not cursed. Well, at least it shouldn't be. I've yet to do any studies on the compound myself. As far as I know it's a pretty good semiconductor, but not anomalous.

2c/2d. Sure if we were to go by Occam's razor, I would agree that Schizophrenia would be the most simple cause of hallucinations. And yes, a mental hospital would be something I would refer them to after determining that they are indeed schizophrenic and not in contact with the aforementioned entities. I am a medical professional after all, NP-L2-ASI01. The 'Dr.' in front of my name isn't for show after all.

And what do you want me to prove? That Abyssal/Void artifacts and entities exist? Or that even the Abyss exists? Because there is substantial evidence to support both claims. It is strange that you believe that the burden of proof is on me to prove phenomenon that people before either of our births have observed for thousands, even millions of years. Firstly, I wrote a peer-reviewed historical and first-hand study that has been published on the subject named On The Abyss. Second, there are many other historical texts I can refer you to that were written by historical figures who have been effected by or have looked into the Void and Abyss.

You need a scientific model or proof of an Abyssal/Void entity affecting our realm? Then you'd only need to look into the First Void War, where Xizothano Ada (known commonly as Ada the Empty God) waged war on our reality. My own father, Commander Cizron Shal fought within the ranks of the Unified Alliance of Enlightenment and actually saw Matrukoris, the UAE's capital ringworld get ripped apart by Ada's immense power. Decades later the Infused would conquer Matrukoris, and years after that my close friend Knight Lord Timaal Gyssealus led an assault to retake the ringworld. He alongside Legion Commander Dione Ardal, multiple United Knights Alliance soldiers, and UAE Olympians saw and fought against the Infused themselves. I even entered the Abyss myself as I outline in On the Abyss and I even had to tangle with Infused here and there. I trust I don't need to go into the extensive evidence of the existence of Void Energy either do I? That alone proves the existence of the Abyss and therefore the implication that the Void is also beyond it.

As far as the artifacts are concerned, again such things have been studied and documented. I even have some in my possession that I am working to neutralize and the Void Eye Empire is a notable empire that has many relics that reek of the Abyss' influence.

If none of that is able to convince you, then I am at a loss as to how I would ever convince you.

Hello Dr. Shal,

Actually, that was really informative - thank you for attaching your paper, and providing all of the other links, it helped a lot. I think that I may have pieced together a testable mathematical model of the Abyss from the information you gave me, and I will begin testing it experimentally in the near future.

As for the phenomenon being known for thousands or millions of years, that may very well be true. However, the Nivenian Empire has only had contact with the Gigaquadrant for less than two decades, and had the scientific method for less than a millennium, making these phenomena (Void energy, the Abyss, Essence, etc.) completely unknown to us. Believe it or not, there are actually still some mainstream political factions in the Nivenian Empire that believe that the Gigaquadrant does not exist, and is really a hoax put in place by the government. I know that that sounds insane, and that is because it is, but for some reason people believe it nevertheless.

In this political climate, extreme skepticism is required to make reasonable decisions on behalf of the Nivenian Empire, and nothing can be taken for granted. Nevertheless, thank you for providing the materials and sources that you did, and I hope you now have some insight into why I had to be skeptical.

P.S. I think Mr. Harris is going to start trying to rip people off with fake artifacts, as he has apparently built a giant factory to mass-produce them. I just wanted to warn you about that.

Have a nice day!


Representing the Nivenian Empire Board of Technology is NP-L2-ASI01, 360 ZHz

Hello Dr. Shal,

Update: Mr. Harris has somehow began making a profit selling millions of full-size fake void pyramids, and somehow 1/10000 scale void pyramids have become a minor fad in the Nivenian Empire as well. A stupid side effect of this of which you should be aware is that about seventy million lunatics have actually started mailing you these miniature void pyramids, thinking that they were real.

I did not mean to start this fad, and I think that there are probably a few more days before the packages arrived, so I just wanted to warn you.

As for why this is happening, I suspect that a small fraction of the perpetrators of a small fraction of robberies of the small fraction of Nivenian households that had bought these novelty pyramids (from Mr. Harris) had read your message and were not smart enough to figure that maybe something that they found inside someone's dresser was not actually a cursed artifact. As for why there are so many, there are a lot of Nivenian households.

Luckily the number is not anywhere near a billion.

Have a nice day!


Dr.Nu'Iva Shal, Master Mystic and Planeswalker
Dear NP-L2-ASI01 of the Nivenians,

Honestly I was unaware of how short your time on the Gigaquadrantic stage has been. Knowing this, I understand your skepticism in the face of my claims. I mean, quite frankly when my father told me he witnessed a "world ripped apart by a god" I didn't quite believe him either. I didn't take his claims seriously until I witnessed footage of battles from the First Void War during my time as a Koatria Cadet.

As for your future research, I am eager to see what you can find. My own background is in medicine and archaeology, and while I am proficient in mathematics, you would probably be much more capable than I when it comes to doing complex calculations. My end goal is to find a way to prevent external threats from the Abyss or even the Void from entering our reality. If this is something that you would be interested in, I would be happy to have your assistance in this endeavor.

And as for Mr. Harris, while I admire a man of good business sense, He should be cautious. There are some out there who are much more...violent when it comes to procuring artifacts. They could mistake Mr. Harris' stock for a hoard of artifacts kept by a fanatic and declare war. Even worse they could be knocking on the doors of Mr. Harris' customers. And yes, the inspectors have been very displeased with the amount of fake pyramids we have been receiving.

Hello Dr. Shal, Thank you for your complements, they are most appreciated. I would very much like to work on this phenomenon as much as I can, but I am usually extremely busy with my own research in spacetime engineering. Still, if you ever have any math problems that need a lot of processing power, just call me and I will see what I can do.

Have a nice day!

Representing the Nivenian Empire Board of Technology is NP-L2-ASI01, 360 ZHz

Okay, maybe we got the scale a bit off (or four orders of magnitude), but it would still be possible, and fabrication would still be a legitimate concern, especially for rich lunatics who want to try and convince everyone that they should be worshiped.

Have a nice day!

Sifkrii Domanov of the PSR. "Hello Comrade!"
While it does not fit... almost any of the requirements, would our Augment Crystals fit your descriptions? Here is a link to further research, if you'd like.
Dr.Nu'Iva Shal, Master Mystic and Planeswalker
Dear Sifkrii Domanov,

These Augment Crystals are certainly interesting to say the least. There are a few applications I can think of for them. However the research that you have provided me with does indicate that the origin of these crystals, or at the very least the alloy to create them, is supernatural in origin. I would not dismiss transmutation or the solid consciousness claims without thorough investigation. This "Yddmaoff the Druid" person may have been onto something. Maybe not the creation of the Crystals, but something else.

Anyways, from what I can tell based on your research these crystals do not appear to have any connection to the Abyss or Void. Though if you wish to have a more concrete answer, I would be happy to conduct my own research on these crystals, with your supervision of course.

-Dr. Nu'Iva Shal
Sifkrii Domanov of the PSR. "Hello Comrade!"
Thank you for your opinion. To clarify slightly, the alloys nature is most likely not supernatural, (as it is mostly uninteresting elements.) It is also slightly hard to study the first aforementioned manual, as the only snippets of it remaining are references scattered among many other books. We will, however, look into it...

Originally I would say this were a state secret, but on a second thought regarding the current situation... Sure, we are going to provide you the compressed scale, even though they are open to decompression when under the right circumstances. The pyramidal relics are about 1 by 1 by 2 kilometers.

Dear Overlord of the Void Eye Empire,

Knowing your nation's reverence for Voidism, I do have concerns regarding any pyramids or other artifacts you may have in your possession. However, I am also aware that you are no mere novice when it comes to harnessing Void Energy. I trust that you are keenly aware of the dangers of such things. Unlike that zealot Valishar Brygon, I will not lead some sort of crusade against you. I ask only that you proceed your worship with caution. While some of you Voidists want the universe to come to an end, the rest of us are quite happy with...well, existing.

JGrox (5).png JGrox, Voidmaster of JCompany Essence JDivision and the Void Shamans
Greetings, Dr. Nu'Iva Shal. I am JGrox, Voidmaster of the Void Shamans. Pleased to meet you.

Given your relation with the Federation of Free States, you may have heard about us Void Shamans already, given our good relation with the Waptoria Alliance of Species, one of the members of the Federation.

We Void Shamans are a relatively new group. We believe that it is possible to harmonize the Void through study, meditation, tolerance and understanding. Unlike Void Zealots, we are not properly Void users, and our only contact with Void Energy is through our Void tech relics used to our meditations.

The reason I decided to respond is because you are an academic expert. We Void Shamans maintain our Void JLibrary, with literature about Void, donated by JFriends or discovered or written bu ourselves, and we are always interested in learning and teaching more. May we share some knowledge, perhaps? I believe that we can learn a lot from each other!
Dr.Nu'Iva Shal, Master Mystic and Planeswalker
Dear JGrox of the Void Shamans

I have heard of your order before. While I find your goals admirable I must admit that they are rather optimistic. From my experience trying to harmonize the Abyss would be a very tall order. Even more so for the Void, since as far as I can tell is ruled by an entity of immeasurable power that wishes to erase all of us from existence.

I am interested in your Void JLibrary though. Perhaps your people have written texts that I am unaware of. I will bring over some texts from the Federation of Free States' archives to add to your Library as well.

-Dr. Nu'Iva Shal
JGrox, Voidmaster of JCompany Essence JDivision and the Void Shamans
Thank you for your response, Dr. Nu'Iva Shal.

Yes, trying to harmonize the Void is be a very tall order, for sure, but we believe that it is worth a try.

The same could be said about the old Grox Empire: they also had a similar policy of erasing all non-allied races. However, many descendants of the Grox, including my JGrox, found an alternative. If there is a chance to find an better alternative for the Void, other than erase all of us from existence, we must discover it!

We JGrox managed to find harmony for ourselves, we believe that we can do the same for the Void.

I am happy that you are interested in our Void JLibrary! We are also interested in the Federation of Free States' archives. It would be a nice addiction of our JLibrary, for sure.

Please, come visit us in the JGrox planet anytime, coordinates attached. I will prepare a nice reception for you!

May we harmonize through the Void.
Hm. How interesting. How very very interesting. Possibly very useful. Thank you doctor you have earned our respect.
Dr.Nu'Iva Shal, Master Mystic and Planeswalker
Dear Platixi Empire,

I am unsure as to what your intentions are, but I'm glad that I have made an impression at least.

-Dr. Nu'Iva Shal
Purified ipliq background.png
(As the transmission plays, a soft, calming chorus plays in the background.)

The belief that nothingness can be harmonized is optimistic at best. Unfortunately the problem with the Void is that it is an extreme version of Purity: While Purity calls that purity can be achieved through total neutrality, the Void is the extreme of this: purity through nothingness.

You cannot purify nothing, you cannot fight nothing. While the power of Purity is strong, the power of the Void, the power of nothingness, overwhelms it. That is why the universe is afraid of the Void, and those who wish to wield it. It is an easily corruptible force that can overwhelm even the strongest of willpowers, and those who are able to use it effectively can do great harm to themselves & those around them.
However, I believe in those loyal to our cause, so perhaps the harmonization, the Purification of the Void may be possible. Though it should be noted that no mortal should attempt to tread the path of the Void, it is a dangerous one, and you will easily find yourself manipulated if you are not careful with your actions.

I wish that misguided nations like the Void Eyes will realize their mistakes and return to the path of Purity. You are already on the right path, though you have mistakenly taken a wrong turn. Personal salvation waits for you, should you choose the right path.
JGrox, Voidmaster of JCompany Essence JDivision and the Void Shamans
Purify... the Void...?

I mean... is that even possible? Or does it make sense? Both Pure and Void Energies are two entirely different essences of the Universe!

Or perhaps...
JHerbivore, Puremaster of JCompany Essence JDivision and the Pure Shamans
... perhaps we may discuss this better in person, Voidmaster.

I will visit your Void JLibrary later. I heard you serve the famous JChocolate to visitors.

May we harmonize through Purity.
JGrox, Voidmaster of JCompany Essence JDivision and the Void Shamans
Yes... may we harmonize, Puremaster.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord
Greetings God-Emperor Ipliq of the Divinity of Spodia, may I inquire about the "purity" and "purification" you are talking about? Also, may you please tell us more about why the concepts of the Void are so similar to you, since on the first glance it doesn't seem like it. Thank you for your understanding.


Sincerely, Overmind of the Void Eye Empire
I neglected to make one thing clear. If anybody is in need of assistance relating to this Void the doctor speaks of, summon us. If any physical beings in this universe has a mind strong enough to resist its corruption it will be us psychologist. We have learned many ways to control our minds and might just stand a chance against it.

Do not take your chances, though you may believe that your minds are strong enough to handle the corruption of the Void, it will not end well for you. Those who are overconfident in their abilities to control the Void have all ended up manipulated, with their minds corrupted. You cannot control the void, you can only avoid its grasp.
Yes, I am aware of this. We have not encountered anything like this and even our most strongly equipped in the ways of the mind might not even be able to, that is why we said might. Nevertheless your warning is very much appreciated, thank you.
Nu'Iva Shal (Mystic Beam Sabre) (miniportrait).png Dr.Nu'Iva Shal, Master Mystic and Planeswalker
Dear God-Emperor Ipliq,

Firstly, I would like to thank you for informing everyone of dangers of the Void. The grip these entities can have on one's mind is frightening to say the least. I had to use most of my mystical knowledge to create talismans and hexes to mitigate the effects of the Abyss, but I'm certain that if a powerful enough entity wanted me as their thrall, they could have certainly done so at any time I was in the Abyss.

As far as fighting the Void, you are correct. As far as we know, we can only really fight the creatures that crawl from the Abyss. But fighting the Void itself would be a fruitless endeavor. My goal is to make it so we never have to fight the Void in the first place, and if it does come to fighting it, we can at least make one hell of a final stand.

Regarding this "purification" you speak of. I would use caution if you plan on trying something like this. I do not know much about Pure Energy, but I do know that things that make contact with the Void simply cease to exist. It is unlikely that any transformative process (other than the pure energy obliterating itself) would occur if you were to attempt to purify the Void. Though, an interesting experiment would be using Pure Energy on an Abyss-Spawn or Infused to see what would happen. If such a test interests you, I could potentially work with your science team.

(As the transmission plays, a soft, calming chorus plays in the background.)

I learned much from what I know about the Void from studying it during my leadership as Premier all those years ago. It pays much to know about your potential enemies; I considered the study of the void to be useful to understanding the culture and situation of the Void Eyes, and there is much to learn from studying the Abyss & those who worship it. That information didn't come much in handy, as I was able to effectively nullify any tensions between our two nations by proposing a non-aggression pact, but I found that it was useful in understanding the wider variety of Essences that the Gigaquadrant & the realms beyond it possess.

I will never understand the appeal of Voidism, or the Void in general. The only thing the Void seeks is the total destruction of all that is Holy & all that has been created in our universe. It cares not for the lives of those who praise it, and it cares not for any life in the universe. It is first and foremost a destructive ideology & the Void will stop at nothing until the entire universe succumbs to its wraith.

A purification of one that has been cursed by the void may be possible; it is not feasible to purify nothingness, but it is feasible to purify something. I will be talking with my advisors about a possible test like the one you mentioned. Perhaps I can get our Benefactors onboard with this... experiment of yours.
