okay so it has COME TO MY ATTENTION that certain people on this forum are WEIRD ALIENS that for some ungodly reason DON'T LEAVE GHOSTS BEHIND.
this is obviously COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE and just THINKING ABOUT IT makes me want to EXPLODE SEVERAL JUNK TOWERS.
THANKFULLY, this is not a COMPLETE and UNREMITTING disaster, because GUESS WHO CAN MAKE POTIONS OF YOUTH. ME. I CAN. i don't even know if they'll work on WEIRD ALIENS, but it is DEFINITELY WORTH A SHOT.
priority given to anyone who is IMMINENTLY DYING, anyone who might be able to REVERSE ENGINEER the potions and figure out MASS PRODUCTION, or anyone who is willing to FUND SAME.
ADDITIONALLY, i am now in the market for POTION APPRENTICES. if this does not sound like an DISASTER WAITING TO HAPPEN, DROP ME A PM.
If these work in my universe, then I can probably mass produce them given a sample. If they don't, then there's no loss-we can heal any side effects. We have equivalents in our own universe, but can't export it, so we're not a priority here.
What kind of funding would you require: your cause is good, and I am willing to give donations.
I can probably get in contact with some people about analyzing a sample, though I wouldn't expect results any time soon. Up to you whether you have enough supplies to take the long shot.
Regardless, I'd like to donate 100,000 Takkarash to your research efforts. (Pinging OTC.)
We at OTC are proud to bring you the most unique products from across the multiverse. We accept Udi, Izikiel, Ka, Buddhitanka, Chron, Takkarash, Cernnuos, and, of course, our own Ofeili Trade Currency.
sorry to take so long, everyone, it's the full moon here and we're getting swarmed by zombies -- Trumpet, Suchi, MagicPhD, Ahrotahn: i will send you all samples. i have enough, and i can make more. best of luck.
MagicPhD: i, myself, do not particularly need funding. HOWEVER, if anyone can't help with analysis directly but does have currency to spare, they could help by funding science people to do it. i have a lot of my world's currency but i don't think i can translate it.
Ahrotahn: thank you for your generous donation. i will figure out something useful to do with it, i promise.
measuretwice: i teach the potions apprentice my secrets and we make potions together and save the world. i am honestly KIND OF OVERWHELMED right now, it would be nice to have help without forking myself. also if something happens to me i want someone else to carry on.
EDIT: Niryl: i have no idea what your deal is, sorry! i can try to send you a sample, though, if you want? "tomb-bound dead" sounds kind of concerning
Your elixir returns someone to full health and youth no matter how old they are? What if someone who is over 9000 years old, but has a ten thousand year lifespan drinks it? What if they got this age through minting Ka? Does the amount of potion you need depend on bodymass or age reduced? I endevour to find out, if I can get a few samples. If we can turn a single potion into 2000Ka we can drastically multiply their use, if it works by bodymass then I can turn a single potion into a hundred times that much. If we sell these Ka to the OTC for their OT Currency that will lower the price of Ka in their whole sphere of influence, allowing people to buy lifespan cheaply. IF we can trust the OTC to have honest market interactions, something which I am sure people here can check.
EDIT: I also need three centals of gold to give a person a ten thousand year(or more) lifespan. It has the chance to katastrophically fail, giving them a lifespan of just a hundred and twenty years. Seeing as I am one hundred and seventy four years old the procedure might kill me, so I am using a thirty eight month old mouse which volunteered. You see why body mass might be a very important factor.
I'd take ten times that amount so I can hire a few teams of earth ponies and casters to mass produce the lifespan extension ritual. With three centals each, a hundred earth ponies, two or three Pegasi and a high level caster I could give eight people an about ten thousand year lifespan every day. But it might be that it's easier to just do a few people, have them mint Ka and restore them with the Potions or Help from Master Mozee or someone who can do her Magic, if that works.
