SPOILER ALERT! If you want the 'surprise' in the new update to stay a surprise, don't show the spoilers.

Holy Horus Nerd Kingdom! Why would you put that in-game with out telling us??!!! At first I thought it was something on a video I was watching. Then it kept happening after the video stopped... Then I thought I was going crazy... then I saw THIS:

You see it? Just above the cross hair? Here's a better look:

    LastAtlantean, there's something special for you at the end of this video. You can skip ahead if you'd really like too.

    SPOILER! SPOILER! SPOILER!

    According to the code they're Podlings... and Golems... at the same time. There's not much that they do as of yet other than drop mushrooms. I'm wondering if we'll be able to tame them by feeding mushrooms to them! (Like those yucky one's that hurt you! Yay useless items not always being useless!)

    Ever noticed that fairy rings (of mushrooms) sometimes occur in the forest? Hmm...I wonder whether there's a connection...

    Going to talk about what Ruben A.K.A Meldrix found in the folders (mentioned in the Skype Group Chat).
    Also going to go over a breakdown of the word "Kinokojin", translated by The Lonely Golem's very own TheRmBomo.
    So if you don't wanna know, don't read.

    Anyone who responds, please keep it in the spoiler tag in the full editor. Thank you

    "Kinokojin."
    If you've seen one in game, you've probably noticed that that is the name shown in the new ToolTip.
    If you're wondering what it means, then go no further then the quote below!

    "It looked like Japanese to me because of the 'jin' which easily means 'person' or 'people'.
    Then I just used a dictionary to get what 'kinoko' meant if it was one whole word, which is mushroom.
    If it wasn't a whole word, but ki no ko, then it would be tree's kid
    (s)"

    so i spoiled it.
    in addition to the laugh, i was kinda going about my business and i hit a silver mushroom with my spear, and i heard one of them growl-munch at me. like it was mad at me for doing that.
    it was really weird, especially when i looked backwards, i heard it's signature child-like-laugh. and i chased it and touched it, and it exploded into one chunk, which was different than me just chasing one and not getting too close, that one dropped seven mushroom chunks. upon the one exploding from me touching it, it let off this sound that reminded me of the souls of the undead screaming at me. these things are really weird man. really weird.

    He was named by our art director, you'll have to ask him.

    Welll....
    I think they might eventually be little bastards, like steal stuff from us, ect. Cambo replied to a post on twitter and said this but in a joking fashion, which I will be taking as a hint of what their behavior will be like.

    After building a basic base over several in-game days and constantly hearing them all around me I noticed that there were several more mushrooms in the area than before.
    I think they plant them as they run around.

    Do you think we can train them to place bombs?

  • TeknonickTeknonick REGISTERED Posts: 167 Seed
    Okay. These little guys drop 1 of each mushroom whenever they die. I've found that if you trap them, or get too close for too long, or even cause 1 damage, they instantly "die" into a puff of those mushrooms. I think I've seen them come back to life... but I'm not sure. I also believe the mushrooms can turn into planted mushroom circles... just as that one guy had mentioned about.

    I'm disappointing I can't make a spoiler chain. Probably for the best.

    Thx For all the info.

    So I guess we wanna talk in spoiler about these,
    So here is my observations and speculations :)
    I followed them for quite a lot of time, like the rest of you.
    They giggle when they see you and run away. They scream if you get too close.
    I do not believe they die, but they teleport, when you look them in the face. Their teleporting leaves behind the pile of mushrooms.
    When you heard what a lot of folks describe as an evil voice, it is actually an incantation of them creating faery rings. ( rings of mushrooms ) I "think" that if you spot one, they teleport back to a previously planted mushroom location.
    I think they are cute personally, and I don't think they are evil.
    Even if they do decide to start stealing from us all in a later patch :P

    can we play as these as a secondary player race? *chuckles*

    My reply to you!
    They do die, but they leave behind one chunk instead of 3(or was it 4?). Not sure if it's the same chunk every time though. A single white death mushroom chunk is what I got when I killed one last.

    Such a huge spoiler thread XD

    Ah! okay hehe, I've seen them drop anywhere from half a dozen to one white one.
    When they teleport/leave a bunch, even if there isnt any more near the area ( like if you chased one for way too long ) they will reappear near where a mushroom is but I am not sure if it has to be one they summoned yet.
    I like them though, and, I cant think of em as evil.
    perhaps later we'll see them as mischievious, but I dont think evil.
