* This is basically canon. The only reason that most of the weird stuff is happening is due to Lord English and/or Bec Noir, and Bec Noir only exists because Karkat messed up the Genesis Frog's genetics.

* What about Tavros? He's just insecure. Also, Calliope is definitely sane.

[[WMG: SBURB is designed to be a fail-safe for the universe.]]
Imagine an alien race with very advanced technology. They are so advanced that they are close to ascending to a higher plane of existence. One day, they gain the technology required to accomplish this final achievement. They ascended by the billions each minute. However, their ascension caused strain on the universe. Once they realized they were destroying everything, only a small fraction of the population remained, with countless galaxies and the species within them annihilated. The remaining few gathered at one location, a monument created in their ancient times on their homeworld. The monument resembled the logo of Sburb.

Immediately they set up a plan. They couldn't allow life to vanish forever. A new universe would have to be created. But there had to be a fail-safe should another species attempt ascension. The decision was to introduce a game on one planet, coded into the DNA of the universe. The code for this game would be placed in the frog temple, and sent to the homeworld of a certain species. The species would be advanced enough to have sufficient computing technology, while not being advanced enough to decipher the full effects of the code. Only one species is chosen out of the potential candidates. The selected species will adopt the monument as the symbol of home. After the temple has landed, a string of events will take place leading to the discovery of the temple and creation of the game. These events happen while another species is attempting to accomplish transcendence. The game will be released, and the planet the players reside on is destroyed.

The players will then emerge in the Incipisphere and begin the game as normal. [[spoiler:Then, their home universe is destroyed at some point in the session. For the human universe, it was the Red Miles, for the troll universe, it was the death of Snowman.]] This is the function designed to prevent transcendence. [[spoiler: Then, the players will create the Genesis Frog, which contains the new universe.]] In the event that a species doesn't learn how to ascend or refuse to and enforce this rule on all species, the code in the temple will break, now that there is no need to create a new universe.

With that, they finished programming the game. They created a new universe, and as their own universe collapsed, the cycle would begin.

[[WMG: Each iteration of SBURB is released around the time of planetary extinction.]]
* SBURB Beta released only a few days before the Beta kids would enter, which involved Bec releasing a wave of energy that more or less wiped out all people on Earth.
* SGRUB was programmed and sent to the trolls, and the ensuing meteor shower killed Gl'bgolyb, prompting the Vast Glub and the extinction of trolls around the universe, including Alternia.
* SBURB Alpha was released around the same time as Betty Crocker made herself known as the Condense and enacted a regime that would kill all humans on Earth in the far future.

[[WMG: The Black Army doesn't necessarily ''have'' to defeat the White Army in a non-Void session. The Reckoning itself is the only requirement.]]
It's just that a Black Army victory is the most common cause of the Reckoning happening. Another cause could be a usurper stealing the White Scepter and dishonoring the terms of a White Army victory.

[[WMG: The different kinds of null sessions correspond to different health conditions of the genesis frogs that created them]]
* Null: The universe is a frog that won't reproduce within its lifetime for whatever reason
* Void: The universe is a sterile frog and won't reproduce by normal means because it's sterile
* Dead: The universe is a frog corpse and won't reproduce because it's literally dead

On top of that, they needed to make sure that whatever this multiversal constant was that would secure the perpetual continuance of their genetic algorithm, it would manifest itself in a form simple enough for any other sentient beings which might emerge to understand and put into action, just as these scientists were presently doing by considering and programming all this. So on top of simply existing, the algorithm had to be well documented and user friendly -- all this in the face of the circumstances of impending galactic collapse under which it would have to be invoked.

[[WMG: Homestuck takes place in a post apocalyptic multiverse.]]
At some point, the existence of modern humanity as we know it was profoundly threatened.

This was after the invention and full blossoming of quantum computing. It was starting to become clear that the implications of quantum computing reached farther than computers. With judiciously hackish applications of low level quantum code, other aspects of our reality could be conditioned into a state of programmability.

So a couple of scientists -- really the first "Sburb" "players," although at the time there was no such game -- got together and started brainstorming. "Our universe is about to end," they said. "What can we do about this?" So they sat at their computers and wrote some code, and they realized they'd found an escape route. They could come up with a genetic algorithm whose individuals were universes, and whose fitness function was a matter of survivability for intelligent life. And just like that, they could have the universe reproduce, and escape into the offspring to live another day, bringing as much of humanity with them as they could gather up.

They needed a certain baseline of preexisting evolvedness. Something to preserve the genetic algorithm into its offspring, since at the time, there wasn't exactly anything larger than a universe they could run it on, so it would have to depend on its very data -- that is to say, spacetime -- as the medium in which it had to rely to continue operating, which was kind of confusing and tricky business. So, anyway, they needed some genetic baseline of no compromise, to make sure that in the new universes, the algorithm would still be there. A gene sequence that would describe the very algorithm that was continuing to generate the gene sequences, so that it could continue to propagate into the individuals it was thus generating, and thereby continue to function.

On top of that, they needed to make sure that whatever this multiversal constant was that would secure the perpetual continuance of their genetic algorithm, it would manifest itself in a form simple enough for any other sentient beings which might emerge to understand and put into action, just as these scientists were presently doing by considering and programming all this. So on top of simply existing, the algorithm had to be well documented and user friendly -- all this in the face of the circumstances of impending galactic collapse under which it would have to be invoked.

So, to address this facet of the problem, they didn't just make an algorithm.

They made an MMORPG.

[[WMG: Lineup for the final show down will relate 413.]]
This troper thinks it will line up like this 4 humans, 3 trolls probably Karkat, Terezi and Vriska (Somehow Aradia and Vriska will switch live and dead status as they seem to be intended to be opposites of one another) and now we officially have our 1 with fedoraFreak being in the medium... and appearently godtier.
* What about Kanaya?
* 4 trolls, 4 alpha kids, 4 beta kids, and Calliope. 4 session offer 13 players.


Alternatively 413 and 612
4 children enter final battle. John, Rose, Dave and Jade.
1 unknown player enter. Being fedorafreak.
3 reset players enter. Nana, Kid Hass, Little Bro and Missy Lalonde, one is unlikely to make it.
6 trolls enter final battle. Karkat, Aradia, Kanaya, Terezi, Vriska and Gamzee.
1 troll revive and enter. We know Vriska returns to witness the green sun.
2 random trolls become relevant again and enter. That Jaspersprite-Nepeta pesterlog was fairly ominous other than maybe Sollux who seems to keep trying to grab some spotlight dispite not actually doing much.

** '''Jossed''', sadly. [[spoiler:When claiming the reward, there are both the Alpha and Beta kids, three Trolls, Calliope and Dad Crocker. Also, the final confrontation with Lord English involves Vriska unsealing Caliborn's Juju, which contains the spirits of the Beta kids, to use against him.]]

** The prediction is vague enough to apply with some stretching. Say, in [S] Collide the Beta Kids engage in the final battle in groups of 4 (John, Roxy, Rose, Kanaya), 1 (Jade), and 3 (Dave, Dirk, and Terezi).
This list shows the last 10 events of 404. Show all.
