"Sure. Let me know if you want a tour." And Dream will wander off.

<awesamdude> you can call people if you have a button

Not taking a tour-- ie going deeper into the woods-- from someone who just killed him! Even if being killed is lower stakes than he is used to,.

<bleedfierceforever> How would one acquire a button?

Permalink

<awesamdude> do you have stone yet

Permalink

<bleedfierceforever> Why would I have stone?
<bleedfierceforever> A stone? Some stone?

He will be very slowly talked through the process of Acquiring Things. He’ll have to leave the walled area around spawn first (this is fairly easy; he can go either over or under the walls) but then he can punch a tree, make a crafting table and a wooden pickaxe, and get cobblestone. Or he can just find some exposed stone and punch it for a while, his choice. (If he makes a crafting table he gets a recipe book with it.) If he wants to do everything on his own, he’s going to need some more cobblestone and some coal; if not, here are directions to the community house, there are furnaces there he can use to make the cobblestone into regular stone. (Furnaces: also come with recipe books!) Once he has stone, he can make a stone button out of it, assuming he hasn’t been thoroughly sidetracked by this point.

He is very capable of following instructions. He ends up punching a tree (it is so strange to be able to hit a tree with his fist and get wood from it) and acquiring a crafting bench because that seems like the option that Sets Him Up For The Future the best. ...he does quickly give up on finding coal and go to the community house, instead.

And after all that rigmarole, he has a stone button, and he manages to work out how to use it. "You wanted me on this thing?"

“I think Tommy’s the one who wanted you, actually, but it’s probably worth learning how calls work here.” Voice calls! You make them using a combination of a stone button and the chat interface that he’s been using! You can also join group calls—VC1 through VC6 all often have people in them–and you can see who’s already in them like so! You can use the chat interface to mute yourself (so that they can’t hear you) or deafen (so that you can’t hear them)! If Jingyan is interested, it looks like TommyInnit is in fact still in VC2.

"Thank you, I very much appreciate your assistance."

And he should go check on this 'Tommy' who was being so insistent. He gets into VC2. "You wished to speak with me?"

Permalink

“HELLO????????”

Permalink

Goodness that's loud. "Yes?"

Permalink

“WHO ARE YOU.”

Permalink

"Xiao Jingyan, Prince Jing-- which probably means nothing to you. Also, you do not need to shout, I can hear you."

Permalink

"--Wait, you're a prince? Like, of a country?"

Permalink

"I am." Or 'was' until he fell into a ?magical hole? "Of Da Liang."

Permalink

"That doesn't sound like a real place."

Permalink

"Nothing about here seems real."

Permalink

"Well I am very real actually. And I am better than a prince because I am me. How old are you, you sound like an adult."

Permalink

"I'm 31." Why is he having this conversation with a ?foreign? ?teenager?

Permalink

"Well that is not very pogchamp of you. I think you are old." He definitely sounds like a foreign teenager; past the handwavey translation magic, he has an unfamiliar accent (well, a different unfamiliar accent than the unfamiliar accent that Dream and awesamdude had shared) and his voice sounds like it's dropped but isn't completely stable yet.

Permalink

It's not that no one has ever considered him 'old' before, even if it isn't that common, but he hasn't experienced it as a dismissal. "...pogchamp?"

Permalink

“Pogchamp, my friend. Pogchamp.”

Permalink

"--I do not know what that means."

Permalink

“Like, you know, cool. Pog.”

Permalink

“WHAT THE FUCK TUBBO HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THIS CALL.”
