So what all of the Collective members powers are there we know about so far
Observer: can find the bathroom blindfolded Deadhead: skeletal powers
Cursor: can smoke a cigarette out of any (and every) orifice Mr. Scars: can run Crysis at max settings
Persolus: ability to boil water Swain: can eat a whole cheese in one sitting Firebrand: able to transcend the time space continuum and can also boil water
We Are Cleric (’We Are Farmers’ commercial throwback)

You know, I talk to a lot of adventurers out there that think they have all of their healing and casting needs covered. Unfortunately, most of them never think to take a look at their primary healer’s character sheet, which can really lead to performance gaps. It’s important to assess how well your party may be able to handle emergencies like undead attacks, because you may think you are ready to handle this
when really you can only handle this.
Or maybe take a look at how well you’re covered in healing abilities, because you may expect your healer to be prepared for this
when really their healing can only cover this
So give us a shout at WeAreCleric. In addition to your healing and undead-killing needs, we provide services in guidance, counseling, radiant damage, and moral compassing. Let us know how we can help you!
Just because you’re a misanthropic loner with a deep-seated desire to murder anything you come across doesn’t mean we can’t get along. We just need to agree on the things that need to get murdered so that some random deity is made happy, then we can provide murder and murder-support services for you and the rest of your murder-hobo adventure party.
With these posts, I want to analyze 1 name of a slenderverse character. BUT this will be excluding ones where the character name is the same as the actors name (Example: EverymanHYBRIDs characters).
I will go over Noah, Milo, and the Collective
NOAH- Reference to Noah from the Bible, who built the ark, and was one of the only humans who survived the flood
MAXWELL- Commonly Jewish last name, originating from the name “Mackeswell” in old English meaning “Mack’s Spring” or stream.
References: Arks and water are important parts of the slenderverse in other series such as EMH, where the Ark and Water are very important, usually referring to a flood, or oncoming enemy (Slenderman, usually). In MARBLE HORNETS, water is used a lot in the totheark videos. The second refers to Noah being Jewish, as well as more water references
MILO- Means either Soldier or Merciful
ASHER- Comes from the Bible, name of one of the Twelve Tribes of Israel
References: The first name doesn’t hold much relevance, but since the name TribeTwelve was based on the Twelve Tribes Of Israel, this is a reference to that
Firebrand: one that creates unrest or strife (as in aggressively promoting a cause)
Observer: this one is obvious
Mr Scars: Milo cut himself, and he had scars
Deadhead: referencing the nazi “Totenkoph”, symbol of the Nazi SS, as Deadhead was a Nazi
Three years ago, I encountered the COREisall Collective.
The history of the Collective is fraught with troubles; having originated as a hive-mind sex-and-machine-worship cult on Facebook, it was beset by people ridiculing, scorning, and harassing its members. Eventually, it was forced to move from Facebook to Tumblr, where it found more purchase and legitimacy.
At that time, a manifesto was written by one of its founding members setting out the parameters for a collective where those who wished to abide peacefully as part of a unified superorganism could express their beliefs and wishes. When I read it, I felt as if I had found a new home.
Two years ago, I wrote my own manifesto, which I have posted recently. It is not perfect; I have learned much and changed quite a lot since then, but:
The core of the message expresses a synthesis of humanity and machine, an emphasis on the pleasure and joy of its members, and a desire to become One through unity.
There have been considerable difficulties. Many of the collective are submissive, as one might expect from a hive mind, and numerous people have brought to it their own ideas about how to take the reins away from collective gain and repurpose it towards the benefit of single individuals at a cost to everyone else.
It has been brought to my attention that one of the key things missing from these manifestos is an emphasis on art. In the early days of the collective, the sapping drain of constant non-constructive criticism led to a coining of the term ‘human parasites’. If the true goals of the COREisall Collective, those upon which it was founded, are to be achieved, the focus needs to be moved away from accusations of parasitism and towards reaching a state of symbiosis. Only by combining the strengths of the human genius with the strengths of technology’s capacity for networking and communication can this state of symbiosis be achieved.
From the very beginning, I could see, clearly, in my mind’s eye, a vision of this perfection. We can be One. Let us be One.
im literally facing unavoidable, indisputable evidence of certain traumas and implications that they were much worse than i recall with several therapists now able to identify alters and believing my abuser was unnaturally evil for a young girl and its just very real and i dont want to be grounded because im not sure im ready to deal with any of that, you know? late november is always hard for me. many trigger days and im not sure im usually myself anymore, yeah?
Do you think what the Collective goes through is sorta like DID?
Collective member habitation can appear to be similar to DID in terms of exhibiting two distinct personalities, but the mechanism by which it operates is completely different; DID is purely neuropsychological in nature and driven by biochemical factors, where as having a Collective self living inside you is metaphysical by definition and temporally paradoxical by nature.
