Hey Whiskers 🐟 Hope you’re having a great beginning of summer and you’ve been getting a chance to go out and touch grass. The Whiskers team has been full steam ahead working on building out all sorts of things for our game, NFTNYC, collabs, community and so much more! Here’s a little look into what we’ve been up to.

Since the casting of the original World Spell, many Adventurers have roamed the continent in search of ancient artifacts and gold. Some even went in search of the Endless Life, the immortality The Old Wizard once possessed. Some Whiskers traveled alone, others in small parties, but every Whisker loved to come together for the annual Magna Congregatio (Great Gathering).

Hosted in Windrose City, The Magna Congregatio was a festival dedicated to honoring the legacy of The Old Wizard, and to celebrating his sacrifice, the sacrifice that regifted the world with its most precious treasure – life. For most Whiskers, this was a time to be merry, to rest, and to reflect on the dangers that lie beyond the walls and waters of Windrose City. For others, it was a time to find those who more directly inherited The Will of The Old Wizard… those who were born with a Shard of End.

Those who carry the onus of fate.

The Framework

Cordie: GM, my fellow Whiskers! Welcome to the very first Pond Podium, where you may get all your burning questions answered by none other than the Old Wizard. I am your host Cordie Yang, more (in)famously known as the little QuillKoiMaid.

Today, Rico has a LOT to share about the 6 layers that make up each Whisker. So, without further ado, let’s dive right in! Hey Rico, my apologies for having the memory of a goldfish—what’re the 6 layers, again?

Rico: GM everyone! We’ve got the Origin, the Species, the Face, the Facial Feature, the Equipment, and the Inventory.

THE WESTERN KINGDOM 🏰

…is steeped in tradition and formality, ruled justly for centuries by the royal lineage of the Westeria family. It’s now divided into a series of townships and castles, overseen by various Barons and Baronesses who often squabble amongst each other.

The Whiskers of the West are known to be well-educated and cultured, and some certainly think themselves superior to the wilder Whiskers’ from more distant regions… though there’s fierce debate over that assertion.

The Old Wizard

Nearly two centuries ago a cataclysmic explosion of mana (the underlying force behind the magic of the world), caused by mankind's arrogance and an insatiable thirst for a power they could not control, destroyed nearly all of the world. Left almost entirely bereft of life, all that remained was the oldest and most powerful of the wizards of The Turris Sapientiae (The Tower of Knowledge) who survived only because he had been meditating in the sacred wellspring of mana, upon which the tower had been built, at the moment of the disaster. The Old Wizard, known once as Unum Qui Ambulat cum Tempore (The One Who Walks With Time), was a man who delighted in solitude...but after hundreds of years without anyone to speak with, even he was growing weary of life. He had drowned himself in research since the disaster, searching desperately for a way to turn back the clock. Unfortunately, he found none. Countless failures had left him without hope. There was still one joy in the Old Wizard's life, however. A small and tranquil place where he was still able to glimpse fleeting moments of happiness.

When the disaster erupted all those years ago there were others that resided in The Turris Sapientiae that managed to survive. Atop the tower was a pond brimming with piscine life; the only neighbors the Old Wizard had ever allowed. Undeterred by the fall of the world, swimming for eternity within the water of life; several species co-existed peacefully thanks to the harmonious energy of The Turris Sapientiae's sacred mana. By all means the cataclysm should have destroyed them, and it would have, if not for the occurrence of a small miracle. The residual mana that had been building up in the pond for the many centuries since the tower's inception acted as a barrier. Yes, the very same mana that had protected the Old Wizard during their meditation had protected the pond and its inhabitants.
