Bloblings have noticed mysterious, gooey bloblings popping up in the world. Many bloblings are weary of them because of their resemblance to the tar from the tar pits, which have been known to eat bloblings for something called 'breakfast'.
01/10/23 Hey there!
It's October now!
We've updated the Art Prompts and Writing Prompts with some new stuff for October, as ever. It's spoooooOOOOoopy season now, and our prompts have been updated appropriately! Go take a look.
It's going to be a Bleeding Season this month! New droplets will be being born at the end of next month. Get thinking about what kinds of bloblings you want to stick into some bleeds, because the Season will be releasing within the first week of the month!
We have some fun things planned for this month, but we'll be sort of sprinkling them throughout. We hope you'll like them!
Our Discord server is invite only. Please DM Ichor or Saerfall after you've submitted your blobling claim form, and we'll send you an invite link. We spend most of our time on our Discord, so if it seems quiet here, we're probably all sequestered away in our server.

After being in the Pits, spending time with Sire, Altum ventured out to see if anything changed with the world. He must of been there for way longer than he intended, for glowing lion heads were scattered in several areas. The amount wasn't done by one person, but he could guess who started it. After all that attention, I'm sure Yume would want somewhere to lay low, at least that is my thought process. How about you Sire? He looked over at Sire to see his input. Sire was thinking for a moment, then squashed himself down like a pancake with his arms sticking out to resemble Yume. He seemed to mimic them, but Altum couldn't really think of why. Perhaps him also being a creation of Eris gave him a slight connection to the next generation.
With his thoughts confirmed, he knew what his plan was. I am pleased that this will follow along with my main plan. Now, where to dig... Sire perked up with the word dig, and he started moving towards Sire in a hugging motion. Altum flapped out of reach, much to Sire's disappointment, and surveyed the Pits to find a place to dig.

He noticed a patch of particularly dense bleeding heart trees, not blatantly obvious, but would only be noticed if you've been at the pits for a while. He picked up Sire and drifted through the branches and landed on the ground inside the clump of trees. This is good. Come on, let's start. Sire eagerly begins and rapidly digs his hands into the moist, chilled ground. His method could be found unique as he soaks his goo into the ground and solidifies the soil to bring it up and toss it elsewhere. Altum starts as well, curving his wings to be used as large shovels. The hole was getting deeper while the surrounding soil was slowly rising from the extra mass being thrown. The risen soil made the trees even thicker, making each path smaller and smaller. The smell of fresh soil meant digging, and that was luring something closer. Altum could hear rustling, but he wasn't worried.

From in the darkness, a couple more smucks came pooling out, lured in by the prospect of digging. Sire got excited when his new digging buddies arrived, making the hole grow deeper. Altum continued, and when the hole became extremely deep, the red starlight from the sky above became darker and less protruding. Hey guys, digging down the entire time won't be well, try branching out. I know with the lot of you, it will get, well, chaotic. The smucks understood Altum with the best of their ability and begun to weave in different directions slowly digging. It started to look confusing when he dug his own path. Passageways overlapped, looped, and climbed st harsh angles that he had to flap to climb. The smucks seemed to know where they were, relying on each other to find directions. He couldn't even find Sire anymore.
His deep chuckle echoed in the chambers, sounding like thunder. The key to this maze are the smucks, not only are non-believers not finding their way out, but only those with good connections can find light down here. It's perfect to lie low for a while.

Sire...? His call rang in the maze. Altum dug a small pit in the tunnel he was currently in. Tar came seeping in, filling the crevice. It felt warm against him, not trying to drag him down, but making him buoyant, keeping him at the surface. Sire oozed down a steep tunnel towards Altum to help him around the labyrinth. Thanks buddy, can you lead me around the tunnels? We need to make them larger.
Around they went to each tunnel and back outside, in a small loop to make the tunnels larger. Altum spread his wings, scooping at the walls to collect soil along the way. The walls grew in the passing time. Soon enough, every so often there was a cavern big enough to perhaps fit an ichor sized creature if they squeezed themselves in the space. Of course, the tunnels leading to them were much too small, barely fitting Altum when he flew with full wingspan. The extra dirt, besides being tossed outside, were made to be pressed into stalagmites and stalactites. Those were then laid across the many caverns and tunnels to decorate and further confuse whoever entered.
I'll leave everyone else to continue digging, not that they would stop, I suppose your species likes digging, huh? Sire bounced happily in confirmation. I believe we are so far down, that no one would find these tunnels, even if they were dug slightly into the other lands. Besides, the tar pits would protect themselves from trespassers. Anyway, we can do other errands while they have fun.

They've reached the surface, and Altum didn't realize how dark it was down there until bright red searing light shone through the trees. Both Altum and Sire had to squint for a while until their eyes caught up. Okay Sire, today I will teach you to carve wood. First, we need some fallen bleeding heart branches, the dryness is the best to work with. They gathered two each and headed under the shade of a large bleeding heart tree to rest.
Altum picked up a sharp rock and held it to Sire. Here, since your goo isn't that strong against solid wood. Sire began observing Altum, quite like a small child. Altum was slowly, but accurately whittling away at the wood, eventually shaping it into the delacate figure of a mini Prismerine. The black wood gave the structure an eerie look, but it couldn't be helped. Sire seemed very excited about being taught a new thing and started to scrape the rock against the branch. It ended up slightly round at the top and looked like a blobling on the stick. Altum slightly smiled at Sire. Keep practicing, we're going to give these to bloblings. Maybe it will sway them that Chaos is not all that bad. He put the wooden statue down and began working on the other branch.

While Sire was continuing to fix his first stick, Altum grabbed some more fallen branches and whittled various flora and fauna, and even a little ichor. There were many sticks from the restless and playful smucks breaking them, so it wasn't much of a hassle. Once Sire was satisfied with his figure, he left the other stick to ooze next to Altum. I am proud of you buddy, let's go hand these out to the blobs we meet. Although, we have to be careful on who we hand them to. Perhaps neutral blobs, but definitely not those fancy orderly ones. Altum wrapped his tail around the statues and both him and Sire went towards the sands to hand them out.
Soma stands over the muck of tar, peering at the curious collection of flora, fauna, and sticks. To hold up tar?
He came here because he was thinking of how to make tunnels for a labyrinth. But it looks like somebody else had the same idea. Soma was planning to do something utterly and probably really silly, something like shunting a whole block of soil into a tar pit as a plug and digging out the interior to form a first tunnel down, and doing it sideways to bypass pits, but this is probably a better idea. Soma remembers that it's... kinda like a mineshaft? Those struts...
But he supposes he has a job to do. The first thing to figure out is how far the tar pits go down. Do they stop at a point? It'd make his job a lot easier since he wouldn't have to drain the pits, but if they don't, then he'll have to figure out a way to sieve out tar and let it continue flowing below.
"Like sand-pits... we could do that. Run sieves in-between to catch falling bloblings. It'd be unpleasant for any blobling that fell down there, but they wouldn't be stuck for an uncertain amount of time." He shudders. The thought is frightening.

Sire and Altum arrived back from the sands and decided to check up on the small collection of tunnels the smucks were building earlier with them. They were heading to the collection of trees when he saw a dark blue blobling. This one however was evolved. They had wings like himself, but since the pits weren't grabbing at them, he knew they were pro-Eris. He spoke aloud a little ways away to alert them before he started flapping towards them with Sire in tow. Hello, I don't believe we've had the pleasure of meeting. Would you like to help me and the smucks create a underground labyrinth here? Just make sure to take a guide with you, it will eventually be hard to navigate. Oh, and feel free to share any ideas on how to make this place more... isolated.
Soma blinks as he listens to the two other bloblings. "I wouldn't mind. I'm actually thinking about something pretty similar." He tilts a paw, shrugging at the latter half of the other's dialogue. "I don't know if it could be isolated, though... If anything, it'd probably have to be more crowded before being lesser so, since a labyrinth would need many hands to make, but tunnels wouldn't be a very popular place unless something happened to them."
He shakes out his wings. "But sure! I'll help. Do you mind if I leave some bleeding heart fruit stains around to navigate? They should work pretty well for dye."
Soma picks up some sticks, and descends into the tunnels, looking around. He begins thinking about what could be used to work with the tunnels themselves. A few ideas come to mind, but he'll need some time to refine them... He'll probably talk to the other two later.
Wait, he's completely forgotten to ask for their names. Oops. Perhaps next time.

Soma is back later, greeting the two blobs as he sees them. "Hey, it's nice to see you two again." He holds up a blueprint, nodding. "I've been at work. There's an idea which is pretty far-fetched, but if we could make it work, it would be really nice."
He begins explaining a mixture called 'concrete', something he remembered from the old world. "I don't remember what it was made of, exactly, but I believe it was made of crushed rock, to a very fine degree, mixed with limestone. Then sand, and water... It's a pretty far reach, though."
Soma admits that the idea is probably far, far in the future, but if it could be done, it'd probably create a labyrinth to match Reinala's. It's currently out of the question, however.
On the other hand, he has other ideas. "Even if we can't make concrete, we can still make the walls harder to collapse..." He points out sand, mixed into the tarry, damp walls, and then stuck together. "Even if we just use the sand to soak up the moisture, the walls would probably get more stable. Then, if we add glue, like from the bleeding heart fruits dried up, it might be enough..."

"The bad part is that these caves are going to have to 'expand' and 'contract' in the future because of temperature changes, so if anything works, they'd have to be designed with 'gaps' to get the segments the stability to contract and expand... but we still have to make sure the gaps are waterproof." Soma sighs, and puts a claw against his temple. "Maybe we should leave that for later, when we have more materials to help out with planning."
"But there's good news. I'm pretty sure this other idea can work straight-away-- it's just harder to do. And it makes the labyrinths a LOT harder to get into."
This time, he describes the tar pits. "As far as I can see, they go down really far, and it can get pretty warm, so we can't dig lower than them. If it goes down as far as I think they do, we can actually make use of the surface tension of tar to make something interesting, though."
He starts to describe dams-- but unique ones. Vertical dams, with sieves between. They are two-purpose: To sieve tar falling from above, catching bloblings that fall down, and also as an entrance.
There's also a third function, but Soma's not sure if they have the materials able to do that yet. "I'm pretty sure we could make a wooden waterwheel, but I'm not sure if the wood could resist the tar's immense weight."

"Either way, the best part about this is that only Eris-aligned bloblings would find this easy-- for them, the worst is that they'd swim down through the tar like water, holding something heavy to make themselves sink if they don't mind it, but for non-eris aligned bloblings, they'd get stuck in the tar, only slowly falling down, and then we could capture them when they're caught by the sieves."
"If we make these 'tar falling pits' the only way to get into the labyrinths, we'd get a secure entrance to only Eris-bloblings... kinda like a secret hideout!"
... It'd also save bloblings from the grim fate of being stuck in the tar pits forever as they're slowly directed towards the sieve grates. Hopefully. Soma supposes it can't get worse.

Altum looks at the blueprint intrigued by both the design and the multi-purpose use of them. There definitely is enough of the tar to go around in order to build something like that. The density of it would make it much slower to leak through as well. Definitely better than his original entrance he has where its just a hidden hole at the surface. That's an interesting idea, let's go for it. To begin building it, we could dig the bottom part and secure the surrounding ground, so if we accidentally open the surface to the tar, it already has a pit to seep into. I do have a question on how the non-chaos aligned will get back out of the labyrinth though.
His description of the word 'concrete' he used was also interesting to learn. They had most of the materials he was describing, although he couldn't think what a 'limestone' was. The most efficient way of getting the materials would be rounding up a group of willing smucks and have them gather the materials. They could then pass it down the line and have a little pit to mix it. Though, the mixture would probably be very sticky, and there isn't any place to wash off the concrete... Using sand and laying it on the tarry tunnels would probably work better then the 'concrete' situation. Besides it being accessible earlier, it would be easier to wash off since the tar acts as water on us, but normal anywhere else. In terms of who's helping, i'm sure some of the smucks around here would be glad to join in to help.

Soma nods. "It's even better security that way. Since the tar acts as water for chaos bloblings, any blobling that isn't chaos-aligned would find it really hard to swim through the tar, but a chaos blobling could swim them to the top quickly and drag the other blobling with them."
Soma blinks, thinking. "Actually... yeah, even non-chaos bloblings can go up, but the process would be slow and could take days. All they should do is get an air bladder or anything that can be filled with air, like the hide of a hollowed-out creature, and hang onto it. The density difference should allow them to eventually 'float' up into the tar pits above, but it'll take a few days and probably be uncomfortable. It's the same logic as floating in quicksand. A chaos blobling would make things really easy for them with the same material. They could even hang onto a piece of wood and the density would float them to the top in seconds."
The dragon folds his arms, tapping. "Wait a sec, hang on... I think I heard something about it from Yggdra, anyway. Those Order bloblings have special vines that can pull up bloblings anyway, so it doesn't matter. Or chaos bloblings could run a few vines into the pit itself along the floor of the tar pool into the sieve... That'd actually help with the pressure, since the tar would prefer to cling onto the vines as pathing as they went down, so we can control the tar flow even further."

With regards to construction, the lizard nods aggressively at Altum. "Mhm! In fact, we can even hollow out everything around the tar channel going down itself, and only breach when we're ready to actually face it. We can ask the smucks to locate where the tar flows are, and work around them. Then, we construct the sieves around the tar flows and put them in, and when we're finally all done, make a loop with a bladed rope and tug at it to break the channel." He then realizes the smucks are around, and don't mind tar at all.
"... Or we could just ask the smucks to unplug it for us. If they're okay with that?" Soma asks, glancing at Altum for confirmation.
"Um, also, I've got a bit of a request. I have a friend, Yggdra, who probably knows what we might be missing. Do you mind if I bring her over here? She's not Eris-affiliated, but absolutely and positively not Themis-affiliated."
