Defender Text: Crystalline The Plant Fueling Our World
AFTER THE DESTRUCTION OF THE LIBRARY DEFENDERS HAVE BEEN RUSHING TO RECOVER TEXTS FROM THE PAST. SOME HAVE EVEN SPENT TIME TO WRITE NEW ENTRIES INTO THE LIBRARY.
BELOW ARE TEXTS ADDED DURING THE LAST FEW DAYS. THESE DEFENDER TEXTS ARE ALL WRITTEN FROM ONE PERSON’S POINT OF VIEW AND BELIEF…
Firstly, it’s important to note that crystalline is not just any ordinary rock or mineral – it’s actually a plant. Rather than relying on photosynthesis, it synthesizes directly from the planet’s energy, drawing from the heart of the world. Because of this, it has earned the nickname of “Heartstones.” The growth process of crystalline is unlike any other plant in the world, and its synthesis process is a fascinating phenomenon that has captured the attention of many researchers and adventurers. As a result, it has become a valuable resource with a wide range of uses in technology, magic, and other fields. The synthesis process of crystalline is quite unique, and it’s different from what we typically see in other plants. As energy accumulates in a specific area, a Crystal Heart is formed, and this heart starts to produce the crystal-like masses that we refer to as crystalline. These seeds, called Golden Crystals, are the building blocks of the larger crystalline clusters that grow outwards. The structure of crystalline resembles that of a branch or leaf, with each individual crystal acting like a single leaf or branch, and the larger cluster of crystalline representing a branch that’s branching out from the planet’s heart itself. As it continues to accumulate energy, it gradually sprouts into a beautiful and unique crystalline formation. The large clusters of crystalline that we see sprouting from the ground are like the leaves on a branch, all linked and branching away from the planet’s heart. However, despite their mesmerizing colors, it’s important to note that crystalline is not naturally colored. The distinctions in coloration are not related to the crystal plant itself, but rather the areas in which the crystals grow.
Through extensive research conducted by the Ikaness, it has been discovered that the colors of crystalline are influenced by the diverse areas in which they grow. For instance, crystals that are grown in the walls of a goblin cave are pure of this planet and remain unhampered and unaffected by the surrounding areas. However, other crystals may be tainted and manipulated, as if someone or something has tampered with their energy. This leads us to speculate that something or someone across the planet may be meddling with the growth of crystalline, and perhaps even cultivating the crop for their own purposes. It’s possible that external factors that aren’t living beings may also be influencing the growth of crystalline, giving rise to the fascinating array of colors that we observe.
There are many differing opinions regarding the true nature of crystalline and the planet’s heart that gives rise to them. Some, like the great King Pogolosh, believe that the planet’s heart is doing its best to gift us with the wondrous and versatile substance of crystalline, in order to help us innovate, progress, and advance as a society. While some may dismiss Pogolosh’s beliefs as mere delusion, others see a glimmer of truth in his words. Regardless of where one stands on the matter, it cannot be denied that crystalline is an invaluable source of fuel, and for many, a source of life itself. Crystalline fuels our world in many ways, serving as a vital component in everything from advanced technological devices to spells and crafts. However, no matter what purpose we may use it for, one thing remains constant – we must always treat the crystalline with the utmost respect and care when mining it from the earth.
Mining crystalline requires a delicate touch and an understanding of the energy systems that sustain it. To simply take it for granted and mine it without regard for its vital role in the planet’s ecosystem would be a grave mistake. As miners and guardians of this precious resource, it is our duty to ensure that we treat crystalline with the respect it deserves, so that it may continue to fuel our world for generations to come.
