Notes/Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Extinction Chronicles 1
    • Note #1: A mysterious voice (later known as the One Who Waits/Homo Deus Helena) greets the reader and says that her thoughts are not the only touching the player but others as well. It is up to the player if they want to read them or not.
    • Note #2: The One Who Waits explains that everything has a limit and considered to be finite. She remarks at how players get through the game through either kindness or cruelty.
    • Note #3: The One Who Waits tells the reader that humans, whether alone or together, are helping each other. She also gives a hint of conditions: time and space in her point of view is more flexible than people previously thought.
  • Extinction Chronicles 2
    • Note #4: The One Who Waits explains that she can easily deduce cause and effect with her reasoning but trying to deduce time itself requires all of her concentration. She notes that because she is somehow feeling seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, years, decades, and centuries all at once, she doesn't know how long she has been waiting.
    • Note #5: The One Who Waits explains that the universe people and creatures live in is simply math the universe is an equation where the things inside that universe are a value that helps to factor in its equation. Futures has probabilities where there are infinite outcomes and she calculates for the most likely outcomes.
    • Note #6: The One Who Waits wants the player to refer to her as the given moniker because she has waited for a seemingly endless amount of time.
  • Extinction Chronicles 3
    • Note #7: The One Who Waits explains to the reader that her existence is where she has nearly perfect information while players have a finite amount of knowledge. She wants the reader to trust her intentions as well as not forcing the reader to believe in her but having the reader believe in her by their own free will.
    • Note #8: The One Who Waits tells the survivor that the ARKs (referred to as the System) have AIs that she can speak with, but can't alter since they too have their own will. She has changed each ARK system by tiny amounts that ended up making the player amongst the thousands of code and pieces.
    • Note #9: The One Who Waits explains that the ARK's guardians feel like tests but they are tests that play by broken rules. She advises the player to leave the ARKs because they are beginning to malfunction. She refers to herself, Mei-Yin and the Tek tribe that escaped through the Gateway Project.
  • Extinction Chronicles 4
    • Note #10: The ARKs have existed for billions of years. It is like an organic being by understanding the struggle to reach its goals, but it struggles on a larger, and far longer scale. She explains that the ARK can make effortless and quick calculations but time has caused it to make more errors, making it a finite system.
    • Note #11: The One Who Waits explains that everything the ARK does such as leveling entire cities, and adding creatures based on fantasy, is for the greater good in achieving its goal. However, a mysterious force is constantly moving its goal out of its reach, causing it to make more erratic actions, and more errors that makes the ARK poisonous to life.
    • Note #12: The One Who Waits says that the player is the only one capable of fixing the ARKs. She explains more of her living conditions as she isn't a carbon-based life form who lives in a different reality where she can't directly affect the physical world. She tells the player she has a gift in the form of a powerful weapon if they head down and enter the map of Extinction.
  • Extinction Chronicles 5
    • Note #13: The One Who Waits advises the players to take shelter in the city of Sanctuary, and the Proto-ARKs that surround it as anywhere beyond their area is filled with death and dangers. She tells the player that the obelisks in the new area are proto-types of the ARK's obelisks.
    • Note #14: The One Who Waits explains that the entire universe is just cause and effect where something had a beginning as the Proto-ARKs are a firm foundation of every ARK that is up in orbit.
    • Note #15: The One Who Waits notices that everything that happened on the mysterious planet (Earth) will either end where it began or sprout a new beginning, but she says that the outcome is still up to the player. She gives a fact that survival of a species requires the expense of another and remarks that where Homo Sapiens pushed the Neanderthals to extinction, a mysterious force is using powerful forces to push humanity to the same fate.
