"L-Value" is a reference to the C programming language's concept of *lvalues*,
which are values that can be used on the left-hand side of an assignment

The Archangel is a beast created by [[dims/hell]] for the purpose of
perpetuating the gathering of [[Dark Energy|concepts/darkenergy]]. It was first
incarnated in 777 N.E. during the First Space War thanks to the amount of Dark
Energy generated by the large-scale battle. The Archangel created [[The

to activate it.

The Archangel is a tall, yellow, furless beast reminiscent of an Arch-vile, but
with long, green wings. It can fly a short distance off the ground, but is
incapable of sustained flight due to its weight. Despite this, it is extremely
mobile and inconceivably dangerous.

Light Ink is one of the most widespread uses of [[concepts/magic]] in the
[[Deceiver Universe|dims/deceiver]]. It is an insoluble liquid that changes
color based on lighting conditions. When used to write onto paper, the color
stays and it is permanently stained with it.

It can be used in conjunction with a [[concepts/contract]] to draw
[[methods|concepts/magic/method]]. Light Ink was invented by the God
[[Apollo|chars/apollo]] shortly after contacting humans for the first time, as

[[!meta title="metaphysical energy"]]

Metaphysical Energy is a type of energy present only [[between Reality and
Flux|concepts/pathways]], and in [[dims/heaven]]. It is a pure type of energy
capable of manipulating the fabric of Reality. Heaven is composed entirely of
Metaphysical Energy. It is sometimes referred to as *MP Energy* or just *MP*.

# Physical Manifestation

Metaphysical Energy is capable of physically manifesting in Reality in one of
two ways: Weak Energy known also as Mana, or Real Energy, known also as Flux
Mana.

## Weak Energy

Weak Energy (Mana) is a multi-colored matter that is only active in a
supercritical fluid phase. When it transitions, it liquifies and becomes an
inert, nonconducting dark orange substance. Weak Energy only manifests within
the [[Deceiver Universe|dims/deceiver]], as a charging counterpart to [[Light
Ink|concepts/lightink]].

Weak Energy can be created by a [[concepts/contract]] or certain [[Flavum
Mode|concepts/magic/modes/flavum]] [[concepts/magic/methods]] (which are most
common in Mana Absorbers.)

## Real Energy

Real Energy (Flux Mana) is a golden, milky superfluid which does not
transition. When contact between Real Energy and a body with a
[[concepts/soul]] is made, the Soul's ideals are manifested in Reality,
no matter the scale. Real Energy has only once manifested in Reality (in a
rather limited form) as [[Liquid Immortality|concepts/liquidimmortality]].

While not accessible physically, three metaphysical paths exist between reality
and *Flux*, the gateway to Heaven: *Sil*, *Tax* and *Ur*, which are the left,
middle and right of Flux, respectively. Beyond reality are also two other paths
known as *Iq* and *Xevv*. There are also seven locations that are not part of
any path, known as *Fiß*, *Vij*, *On*, *Āx*, *En*, *Ûn* and *Gip*.

*Sil*, the left of *Flux*, is made of seven waypoints: *Sim*, *Kal*, *Oll*,
*Näx*, *Al*, *Sün* and *Sàx*. Each of these points purifies the [[Metaphysical
Energy]] passing through it. Near-by locations include *Fiß*, *Vij*, *On*, and
*Āx*.

*Tax*, the middle of *Flux*, is an unstable path, where *En* and *Gip*
occasionally merge and become dead ends, trapping any energy flowing through
them until they merge again. *Ûn* exists between *Gip* and *Sün*, below *Sàx*.

*Ur*, the right of *Flux*, is a straight, wide path, with no obstacles. It is
the easiest to pass through, especially with large amounts of energy
congestion, but it does not provide any other potential side-effects and
generally will output (or input) low-quality Metaphysical Energy.

*Iq* is to the far left of *Sün*, near the top of *Sil*. The purpose of *Iq* is
unknown.

*Xevv* is a path to the right of *Tax*, inbetween it and *Ur*, which has no
discernable end point on either side. It is difficult to discern where exactly
*Xevv* begins or ends from *Flux* or Reality's side, but somehow energy
occasionally passes through it, ending up either in *Iq* or one of the three
paths.

Score is a currency universally established in 1105, New Era in the [[Deceiver
Universe|dims/deceiver]]. Score originally began its development as a currency
in 750 N.E, during the First Space War, where dozens of currencies started
quickly becoming obsolete or denied by certain groups, giving leverage to the
more neutral Eastern currencies.

By the time the First Space War had ended, most cultures were using one of
three eastern currencies: Dô, Maro, or Score. Ultimately, Score ended up being
both steadier than Maro and more valuable than Dô, and thanks to new
intragalactic communication techniques, was able to be transferred and
communicated between banks far easier. This ultimately led to its
standardization in 1105.

The name "Score" comes from the archaic meaning *20*, as one Score was
originally worth 20 Dô at the time.

A Soul in Xevv is a type of [[Metaphysical Energy|concepts/magic]] capable of
storage. Generally, a Soul stores things such as memories, personality, and
knowledge. They are always bound to a body until they die or become
[[Immortal|concepts/immortality]]. All living beings, planets, stars and other
celestial bodies have Souls, though most use them to store different (or no)
information.

# Origin

Souls were created by the God [[chars/athena]] in the beginning of the second
universe, after the first was naught but featureless clay and gas. They were
created just to store unique information of every object in the universe, but
ended up offering far more complexity than intended. As such, rules for them
were quickly established (before the concept of death was created) by
[[chars/thoth]].

# Unlinking

Souls are mediated by the God Thoth, who sees that they pass from Reality to
[[Flux|concepts/pathways]] properly. Thoth is incapable of error, having
created this system, and so no error in the process has or ever will occur, as
long as [[dims/heaven]] still exists.

Thoth does not oversee Souls which have exited Reality abnormally (ie.
Immortals.)

# Death

Death is defined by the moment a Soul detaches from its body, which can happen
for a multitude of reasons dependant mainly on the body. When a body dies, it
releases a significant amount of Metaphysical Energy relative to the size and
complexity of the body, as well as the complexity of the Soul's contents.

# Binding Errata

On extremely rare occasions, the binding of a Soul to a body can erroneously
extend to inanimate objects. This creates a *Soul Gem* which may be used to
[[bind multiple souls to one body|chars/deceiver]], a phenomenon only
discovered in the [[Deceiver Universe|dims/deceiver]].

<q>Over the last year I've found little reason to be on Earth with all the war going on at the moment. I'll be sitting here drinking my cappuccino, bitches!</q> I sent the BBS post to the travel board, surely someone'd laugh. <q>Anyways,</q> I said to my friend, <q>I'll be star-side. Give me a few minutes in there and we'll be moving again.</q>

<q>What the fuck even went wrong? We fueled up to a 120 lightyear trip and it's failing at only 20. This is worse than when we had to refuel every 5 a few hundred years back, at least then we'd know <i>when</i> we'd have to spend all our money.</q> Her annoyance filled the room with a stifling atmosphere, and then I knew it was fate that I'm getting the hell out now.

<q>Well,</q> I said as I jumped down to the base chamber, laden in all kinds of colors, <q>maybe we were shammed when we bought this ship.</q>

<q>No good,</q> she says, <q>no good at all.</q>

I didn't agree with the sentiment. The retro-deco design of the ship was definitely my style.

<div align=center>12:42 27/01/3101 NE // MARS ORBIT</div>

We reached the abandoned ship, a mere thousand something kilometers out of high orbit. A few hundred years pass and there should only be a bit of rust on these things, but the ship was in worse disrepair than I've ever seen.

The four of us trunked into the ship and checked out the interior. A few hours pass and we didn't see anything. The report was dull, but an object that big just coming out of hyperspeed – which it apparently entered for no reason – just isn't right. I guess I just don't have time to dwell over these things anymore.

<q><i>Excessive time waste</i></q> summed up the trip. I did like the parts of design on the she ship I could see, though. Retro-deco is definitely my style.

<div align=center>10:15 28/01/3101 NE // MARS</div>

Four men in space suits walked into the café. Kind of a strange sight to see, but I'd heard of these <q>garbage hunters</q> before. Seems like an excessive time waste to me, you can't get money from selling space trash.

… Maybe you can, who knows. My friend was singing at me but I wasn't paying attention. The four guys, in unison, sat down at a table. It was pretty funny. They didn't all ask for the same drink, though, and I was disappointed. I looked at the seat next to me and waited for my friend to arrive.
