Frequently asked questions

Lore

Is it possible for an insider to leave Nodd?


It is not currently thought to be possible for an insider to leave Nodd.




Is it possible for my existing OC to be an insider?


Absolutely. You're welcome to say your character originated in Nodd, even if they're not one of Nodd's species. They could be a chimera, or they could be of a recurring species in Nodd that's less common than the ones listed.




Is it feasible for my character to come in contact with a citygod?


While not likely, it's entirely possible for any citizen to be imprisoned and subjected to the practice known as "god-tending". During this punishment, the victim is forced into the citygod's private chambers, where they'll be used for anything the citygod desires.




What type of furniture has the biggest dick?


Large, heavy, quadrupedal pieces such as sofas, couches, and chaises tend to be particularly well-equipped.




Can a mage join more than one house?


While possible, it's unfeasible for a mage to be enrolled in two houses simultaneously, as most require full committment to its beliefs and rituals. One would likely need to find some way to remain undetected by the other house, and would almost certainly be expelled (or worse) if discovered. Considering the houses are staffed by powerful savants who have various methods of keeping track of disciples and apprentices, this would be quite a feat to pull off. A mage could more feasibly join one house, be granted the title of Savant, and then leave the fellowship for another house. It may or may not be more difficult to be accepted into the second house as a disciple - while a past tarnished by opposing houses is unappealing, the experience as a mage could be beneficial and desirable. Additional measures of ensuring allegience may be employed to banish any doubts in the fellowship.




How does a citizen acquire gloam?


Citizens automatically accumulate gloam after participating in chaotic events.The amount can be seen as a number via one's ego bracer or similar devices, and at any mage kiosk throughout the city. The energy is not stored within the ego bracer itself. Mage kiosks also allow a citizen to withdaw any numerical amount of gloam as material gloam in the form of a cartridge. These cartridges come in a number of shapes and sizes, and can be loaded into a variety of artifacts for casting spells. During a transaction, gloam is exchanged between persons based on intent - no gestures need to be made, and no gloam needs to be withdrawn into a cartridge.





Usage

Do I need to give you a cut when using your concepts commercially?


I don't require you to provide any form of compensation for using my concepts. Please just credit me as appropriate.




Do I need to pay in order to use Nodd's concepts?


No, you're welcome to enjoy Nodd without subscribing, purchasing, or adopting. Please take a look at the Rules before doing anything.




How do I participate in Nodd?


In just about any way you like. Feel free to use my art for any personal purpose - RP, art, whatever - as long as you provide credit. You can also use my concepts for any personal or commercial purpose - again, with appropriate credit given. There will be a variety of interactive bits throughout the development of Nodd, in the form of games, templates, adoptables, YCH, events, and who knows what else. Let's see what happens. There's also the Discord, where there are themed RP rooms and a few other things.




What is the point of the Ego File?


The ego file serves as a place to stash whatever nonsense you feel like collecting throughout the development of Nodd. It can also serve as a character profile for Nodd-themed RP, if you're into that sort of thing.




Can I make my own items for the Ego File and sell them to others?


By all means. Feel free to make, sell, trade, commission, etc. anything you'd like to use in the ego file, or anything you'd like others to use.




Can I make up my own insider species?


Please do, though keep in mind I will not be adding it to the lore officially.




Can I make an insider but give them non-canon traits?


Yes, feel free to change things up to suit your tastes. It should be noted that even non-standard insiders could feasibly still be considered canon; hybrids are common, and the City is known for all flavors of chaos.




Can I RP as canon characters?


Feel free to RP whatever you like.




Can I make an insider species but use them outside of the Nodd setting?


Of course. While there's currently no canon way for an insider to leave Nodd, you're free to ignore this and/or come up with a reason why this doesn't apply to your character.




Can I use the ego file / collectibles / shinies idea for my own setting and followers?


Sure. In general, please feel free to use my ideas if they're inspiring to you. Keep in mind "ego file" is a lore-specific term for what is really just a character sheet or profile.




Can I start my own cult?


By all means~ It should have a name (may or may not be the leader's surname), a leader(s), a theme, a crest, and a location. Each cult also has its own trademark attire and exclusive spells, and its own approach to combat. Cult themes are generally a bit more specific and nuanced than house themes, but can be pretty much anything. Examples: Miria, Cult of the Taur Yorg, Cult of Hungry Maw Truglusk, Cult of the Glowing Left Nipple




Can I make and sell adoptables of Nodd species?


Please do~ You're welcome to use any concept commercially as long as you give appropriate credit.




Can I make edits to existing ego file items/creatures and then sell them?


No, I ask that you not use my art commercially, but feel free to make your own items completely from scratch.





Development

Can I help work on Nodd?


I'm not currently looking for any help on the project, but this may change. Let's find out.




Can my character be in Nodd officially?


I'm not looking to include anyone in the lore permanently, but may feature cameos from time to time. I will make it known when I'm looking for characters to use as cameos; please don't contact me about it.




What is this and why?


This is a fictional setting for kinky adults, written and illustrated by Slug. It mostly exists as a project to keep me sane, and as a world to inspire terrible things for your artistic and/or roleplay endeavors. This is an ongoing project I intend to add to until it's no longer interesting.




Which account(s) should I follow to see more?


For Nodd-specific art, updates, in-character announcements and other campy nonsense, I will mainly be posting to City of Nodd's Twitter and Discord. Follow these if you want to see all the dumb ideas I come up with, or stick to Slug/Filthytalons if you just want the porn; I will retweet/repost the juicy stuff to my main accounts. Please be warned that ANY KINK may appear on City of Nodd's accounts, but I endeavor to use warnings when feasible. If you're sensitive to gore and/or scat, it's encouraged you join the Discord channel where I will be using spoiler images. (City of Nodd indeed has an FA account, but I am not currently using it for anything but the icon.)




Who's Oddbird?


That would be me. I actually anticipated making a name change back in 2019, but decided to not go through with it for the time being. If you see the name floating around anywhere, it's either because I missed one or something hasn't updated yet.




Will you be adding more species, items, locations, etc.?


Yes. In a very general sense, I hope to continue adding to the lore over time, both in fleshing out existing concepts and introducing new ones.




Will you use my art/idea/project on the site officially?


In almost all cases, probably not. I intend for the official art and lore to be a solo project for the most part (though may commission bits here and there for future projects). I will say that if you spend a significant amount of time developing something Nodd-flavored, I would probably be happy to link to it.
