The main characters are all Clan Malkavian vampires from Vampire: The Masquerade...trying to escape from a lunatic asylum (and succeeding, at some indeterminate point in the story). The "Elf Tears" are human blood. Also, the "Weasel Emmisary" is a Clan Ventrue Camarilla vampire. Just because. This means the player character is Malkav/The Malkavian Madness Network.
They Are in The MatrixThis Explain the Super Powers
Team Sleuth and Mobster Kingpin are exiles.Specifically, from Prospit. Presumably, they were part of the troll's session.
Problem Sleuth takes place in the future after Homestuck
Alternatively, Team Sleuth and Mobster Kingpin have already played SburbAnd completed it. The passive and active players have been pitted against each other.
The Problem Sleuth universe is the very first universe in the Sburb-related chain of universes.We know the universe was created by Godhead Pickle Inspector ordering the various Temporal Replicsimile Pickle Inspectors to spam-cast Temporal Replicsimile until they were elementary particles, making no mention to the Genesis Frog. The fabric of spacetime at least for the Imaginary Universe is also shown to be workable as fabric and reparable with no further problems via fan cord sewing Deus ex Machina, which seems unlikely for a frog judging by the exploded Bilious Slick. The Midnight Crew are the first incarnation of the Dersite agents, and various humans and Game of Life pieces and such became Prospitans.
Contrary to the above, Problem Sleuth (with minor variations) is a vital universal process once Bilious Slick unfolds at the end of s Sburb session.Once the frog provides the basic process of spacetime to exist, at some point a Godhead Pickle Inspector or variant appears from Prospitan exiles' or the universe's inhabitants efforts, and later fills the universe with matter from the above Temporal Replicsimile part-pickles.
The reason the comic is (mostly) monochrome is because everything is made out of Part-Pickles, all of which are in the three primary colors, plus yellow.The mixture of the primary colors results in various shades of black and white.
