Ahh, console video games (or vidcons as I call them). the ultimate medium of expression, able to convey any emotion ranging from hatred to love, loyalty to fear, all in front of our eyes. Ah, and with lovingly crafted art, music, and the ability to control the action, vidcons are the ultimate combination of the high arts. While I tend to play the stoic, I will be the first to admit that vidcons haven driven me to cry, to scream and shout, to feel actual hate; such is the power of this force beyond our wildest reckoning. And here I am, before you, to temp your tongues with the taint of such a tantalizing topic.

And the Japanese, the true geniuses behind the world of video games. Pah, I throw my scorn upon such incompetents of the West who would mock the true art of the Japanese with 'games' such as Baldur's Gate and Madden. Perhaps it is that the West is not as intelligent as the East, but this is a matter for another day. Japan has given us such masterpieces as the Final Fantasy series, Star Ocean, Wild Arms, and of course, Arc the Lad. Yes, some of the finest vidcons in the world were created by Japanese. I come to you today to ask you in all earnesty, what is your favorite vidcon? I will reveal mine after the grand debate has illustriously begun, but not before the first poster falls victim to my plot of discussion.

In other words, this is a thread on an imaginary forum our avatars frequent. The topic can fluctuate, and its mostly just general discussion.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bridget_icon_575490809.png You should visit Sakurajima when you get the chance. The original Spring Sakura is beautiful during that time of year.

EDIT: [2] As someone who's into Genshin lore, it's very likely that Teyvat is an artificially-constructed flat world with a projected sky of fake sun, moon, and stars based on the evidence that's already given to us so far.

[1] Uhh frick
Any details on what would be behind that fake sky? Or what material the fake sky is made of, if it even is made of anything and not the effect of physics, like a black hole's event horizon?

[2] Pretty much a universe like the universe you're familiar with. There are probably no gods around, the space station itself is in deep space several thousand lightyears away from the closest celestial object and gets fed with power from another universe. Beyond that, I haven't been able to make out anything notable about it.
The universe has been indexed as 0001-07-14-2062, if Phos wants to look it up.

The entry for the universe, as Icarus said, doesn't have any notable details besides the date of discovery, its degree, as well as some measured universal constants

You have different index entries for different universes? Interesting. May I see some more of them, or is that too much?

Well, the indices are arbitrary, but I can still give you a list of notable universes and their contents, except for what's confidential.

The entries would detail universes of characters that have chatted here before, plus a bunch of objects and spaces that have been noted to have interesting physics. There's also entries for public testing sites, Identity Decay Detectors, and any other public piece of EV infrastructure

So by "detail universes," how detailed are we talking?

To be fair, there are several thousand more entries which are just the bare minimum of recording, I've run a query for universes that specifically have more detailed entries.

Anything that can be quickly found by either consulting a wiki or observing directly, generally. For Girl Genius, the file would include database references to the siege reports that the Wulfenbachs have shown Icarus; and if there's a piece of media in another universe that matches the given universe closely, there will also be a note attached

They dominate the sky every day and night, and can be seen from anywhere on the planet. They really are a sight to behold.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/naomi_icon_62642189.png Uh, yeah... our ancestors used to call them rings, but over 740 years, we ended up calling them sky arches because on the ground, we can't exactly see the whole thing wrap around the planet anymore. Only half of it on any given time of day.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bridget_icon_575490809.png If you're curious, this historical photo was taken by our ancestors when they first arrived on Florentia. The sky arches are lovely.

So that's a rocky planet with rings? Normally from what I've seen planets that have rings around them are generally gas giants such as Saturn. I thought the planet needs to have a certain level of mass to attract rings of debris in the first place. I could be wrong though.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marnie_pokemon_family_guy_10_7_22.png

From what I've read, a planet orbiting V1400 Centauri, called 1SWASP J1407b, has a ring system around 200 times larger than that of Saturn's.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/narnia_icon_76472947.png I believe I already told you that humans never managed to colonize the Milky Way, did I? That wasn't just conjecture. Without the magic gateways that we Dolls used, which are currently inactive since our Queendom's collapse, interstellar travel between stars is virtually impractical even with conventional methods, no matter how advanced. When the humans left Earth, they knew full well that it'll be a one-way trip, and according to their logs, Florentia wasn't even their original target. They initially targeted a planet they called... "TRAPPIST-1 e" - a bizarre name, but I digress - but they veered off course because they severely underestimated their trajectory relative to the rest of the stars. They drifted endlessly for thousands of years until they stumbled onto Florentia by chance.

For what it's worth, the name Florentia was first conceived by us Dolls during the Garden Project nearly 1 billion years ago. It's to symbolize us giving the planet life through our alchemy.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/naomi_icon_62642189.png We can still do spaceflight, but it's largely focused on sending robotic probes and satellites to the other planets in Florentia's system. As far as interstellar travel goes, we don't want to take that chance again based on what our ancestors went through, and we definitely cannot return to Earth as is. We'll only consider it a last resort if something catastrophic happens to the planet.

I think the names are just codenames designated to each of the planets and stars for simplicity. It would be difficult to come up with traditional names for every single one of them, considering how many there are in the universe.

[up][up]Are there plans to reactivate those magic gateways that you used to use? Or are there potential consequences to reactivating them again that outweigh any benefits?

I donít think they have an equivalent of Laniakea to give the obscene amounts of energy for that.

   Arenít I supposed to control everything in this universe?   

That does not apply to other universes to ensure the ability for multiple gods of the same role to coexist.
