The Gone-Away World Part 2: Generating the Found Thousand

Overgrown by qissus

When Stuff comes in contact with a person’s thoughts, Reification occurs, that is the making of something Real. It manifests human thoughts and emotions from the Noosphere and into the physical plane, often with horrific results. As mentioned in the previous post, sometimes Stuff mingles with and fuses with a person. More often than not, this results in a hideous agonized thing that dies shortly thereafter due to incompatible biology. However on rare occasions the end result survives and, on rarer occasions, can thrive. These folk are fusions of man and fantasy, wishes and stray thoughts and idle day dreaming. Some might even appear as creatures from fantasy and scifi, they might look like elves or little grey men or centaurs or Wookies. The more outrageous the transformation, the less likely the end result can actually survive long, after all it is the result of imagined biology. This is why there are very few children among the Found Thousand, for while their imaginations are vast, their knowledge of anatomy tends to be on the weak side. This table is assuming the resulting Unreal Person actually survives their creation.

This Unreal Person has a:

Head which
1. is that of an animal or plant, is nominally incapable of speech

10. has spare, redundant organs
11. is gelatinous with organs all floating in a non-Newtonian goop
12. is child-like

14. can’t feel pain
15. is in constant wracking pain
16. is slowly rotting
17. is biologically immortal
18. is completely unaware that they are not a normal person
19. can breed true.
20. is a p-zombie.

On top of these, I suggest rolling on your favorite Failed Career table to find out what this Unreal Person was before they became what they are now. I also suggest that you extrapolate on what these Unreal People’s “abilities” are based upon this table, but keep in mind that they are ultimately traumatized humans in bodies that are not wholly functional. A centaur generated from this table is not perfectly fused and still thinks like a two legged person, they might be able to gallop but it is not going to be pleasant or graceful. Furthermore you can use this table on animals instead to generate terrible Unreal Animals. Nothing like a shark with tank-tred legs and wings speeding at you from a sea of liquid Stuff.
