    [the Vanished]Hamblin, England.

    The township of Hamblin, England:
    The entire town of Hamblin, England Vanished all at once. Not even buildings remain. The wind howls forlornly and people claim they hear scratching whispers in the breeze.

    But...they are not entirely gone. You see, a limited form of communication with Hamblin is possible, a trait unique to this township alone.

    You see, the only structure remaining in what was once Hamblin is Hamblin's well, which is now dried up. If someone shouts a question down the well at daytime, their voice just echoes mundanely. But, should they do so at night...they might just get an answer.

    After this property was accidentally discovered, thousands of the curious have camped in and around the land that once housed Hamblin. They shout questions into the well, and receive some startling answers.

    Here are some of the more interesting Q-and-A's:

    Q: Where are you?
    A: In Hamblin. Where are you?

    Q: Are you aware you're Vanished?
    A: We didn't Vanish; everyone else but us Vanished!

    Q: Are you in Heaven?
    A: No, we're in Hamblin, by the well. Are you stuck down the well, because we can't see you...

    ...and so on. In essence, while Hamblin Vanished from most of the world, most of the world Vanished from Hamblin's point of view.

      [Tibet]Lemuria, the Lost Godcolony: in detail.

      Lemuria was once a lonely outpost of mighty At-Lan-Tuu, but then came the Many, and over one thousand Starborn and six thousand Starbeasts fled to Lemuria and closed the doors behind them. The doors were programmed to open after ten years; by that point, the Lemurians reasoned, the Many will be satisfied they'd succeeded and would well on their way to whatever unknowable reach had spawned them. With Starbeasts as livestock, the Lemurians settled in for a long, tedious wait.

      Ten years in an enclosed space can drive people crazy---even superhumanity is vulnerable to cabin fever. And so, after three years down in the dark, one of the Lemurians went mad and sabotaged the doors, preventing them from ever opening. Convinced the outside world had been destroyed, this nameless lunatic thought he was saving Lemuria.

      Lemuria had been designed to withstand a superhuman assault, and so even the Lemurians could not make their doors open. A panic quickly set in. There was a riot, and the lunatic fringe took control.

      Over the centuries that followed, the captives of Lemuria tried to get on with life, but as lunacy set in, society degenerated. After the fanatics took ove, all pretense of normality was abandoned. In desperation, even the line between Starbeast and Starborn ceased to matter.

      After a time, even inbreeding became impossible to avoid as families married into every other family. Genetic degeneration set in. Lemuria took a final descent into utter barbarity.

      Eventually, though, the fortress began to shut down---one of the first things to go was lighting and sewage maintenance. People slowly went chalk-white and blind, and disease set in. Hundreds died, but those that survived were even stronger than before---and even more feral and deformed.

      After countless centuries down in the dark...the doors to Lemuria suddenly opened. The Morlocks, as Lemurians are now called, have only slowly slipped up and out into a world utterly foreign to them. Though profoundly alien, Earth intrigues the Morlocks, who hunger for the bounty of this beautiful garden full of soft weaklings.

      -//-\\-

      What are Morlocks?
      A form of Earth-G superhumans, Morlocks are the degenerate, blind, hideous Crossbreeds of Starbeasts and Starborn that recently emerged from Lemuria after millennia of imprisonment. Placeholder.

      What differentiates Morlcks from others mutated by the Green Star?
      Morlocks are hideous, and many are barely sentient. They also tend to be extraordinarily powerful, usually PL10/150pp+. Placeholder.

      Are Morlocks evil?
      In a word....maybe. It's MUCH more accurate to say Morlocks are savage and feral and massively inbred.

      Who leads the Morlocks?
      Placeholder.

      Do any secrets of At-Lan-Tuu yet remain, buried in Lemuria?
      Yes. Placeholder.

        Earth-G's Dreamingborn and its four Elementals!

        Earth-G's Dreamingborn:
        Damnation's Herald:
        Crunch writeup:
        PL9/150pp. Spiritname is Hannibal. Hannibal is a male Dreamingborn, Damnation's Herald is shaped by medieval Europe's rampant fears of the devil and witchcraft. A bloated, satyr-like undead thing, Damnation's Herald may fly via broomstick and may gift 'homunculi' as Sidekicks to mundane 'witches'! Damnation's Herald is caught in his personal narrative and honestly believes he is as he is...!

        Earth-G's four elementals:
        For more information on elementals and the role they play in the entire Forever Tree see here: Elementals---and more!
        Aethyreelle:
        Crunch writeup:
        PL10/150pp. A female elemental, Aethyreelle embodies rain (water). She can control rain, thunder and lightning and wind. Plus, she's a vestigial precognitive.

        Glome:
        Crunch writeup:
        PL10/150pp. A male elemental, Glome embodies mountains (earth). He is a brick resembling a mobile moa'i head from Easter Island. He can also flow through stone as if it were open air, but only through stone never worked over by man. Plus, he has vestigial telekinesis and pyrokinesis.

        Ifrit:
        Crunch writeup:
        PL10/150pp. A male elemental, Ifrit embodies volcanos (fire). A brick made of searing-hot 'living' obsidian, Ifrit is a superspeedster whose body is entirely razor-sharp. He's a vestigial telepath.

        Skie:
        Crunch writeup:
        PL10/150pp. A female elemental, Skie embodies strong winds (air). She can become a 'living' windstorm, doing immense damage hilts in this ur-wind configuration. Plus she is a vestigial cryokinetic.

          Testing, testing...hmmm, it was not swallowed.

            The undead!!!

            Throughout the entire multiverse, sinister alien vampires---the Starvampires!---threaten the sanctity of life itself! On Earth-G, this is no different...

            What are Starvampires?
            Starvampires are multiverse-spanning undead Tlolkku, which bear heavy resemblance to the vampires of folklore and---to a lesser extent!---pop media.

            Vampirebrutes are stupid, savage and utterly loyal to their more standardized kinfolk.

            Vampirecommoners are 'regular' Starvampires.

            Vampiredeities are all dead now, but, in a timeline that is Not, they were insanely powerful higher-order intelligences.

            Vampirepriests are faded echoes of the Vampiredeities that worship their dead former selves.

            Vampire remnants are flesh-eating super-zombies!

            Vampireroyals psychically embody each Night House and rule like undying gods.

            What are Tlolkku?
            Super-advanced reptiloid aliens, Tlolkku are originally from the Earth-A universe---now, however, they've spread like a bloodstain across the entirety of the Forever Tree. All full-blooded Starvampires are of Tlolkku descent.

            Where are Starvampires from?
            The Earth-A universe, a parallel-Earth in which Starvampires reign supreme!

            Is Earth-G aware of the Starvampire menace?
            For the most part---no, they are not aware of Starvampires, let alone the threat these Starvampires pose...

              Re: The Green Star universe [2nd Edition]!

              I'll be backing this up, tomorrow, considering the recent unpleasant drama. Still, could a kind soul archive the Green Star universe, too? Starting over from scratch is not something I fancy doing.
