I decided to place the messages for each Drone here to be able to easily access lore information for anyone interested.
DRONES – RAINBOW FIELDS
I had the drones rebuild the conservatory
exactly as it was before. I was so happy to
see it standing there again, its grass
filtering the beautiful daylight of this
When it was done, for a moment I almost
thought things were back to normal. I
though maybe I would just walk inside and
start again like nothing had happened.
And though I know that’s not the case, it
was still so nice to finally be home again.
I got the idea for this conservatory from a
history book I had as a kid. I thought it
was so lovely, the way that you could be
inside it but feel like you were in the
world outside at the same time.
I wish I had something like this back home.
Maybe then I wouldn’t always have had to
run off to look for plants and mushrooms.
Maybe I would have been closer to them…
Well, here we are again. I’m sending the
drones out to all their original scouting
locations. Once I confirm the conditions
are the same I’ll get to work.
This place… I still remember being in awe
of these rainbow fields. It felt like being in
a beautiful dream.
And I guess in a way it was, because it
ended much too soon.
My gosh, this grass! Just look at the colors
change as I speak! I just arrived at this
island and I’m already finding one of the
most unique botanical discoveries in
It’s all too good to be true!
I was so in over my head when I first
started here. I remember hauling
jellystone back to the conservatory by
hand because I was so excited. Breathless
and sweating, I was going about everything
all wrong, but I was happy.
There’s little time now, so I’ll need these
refinery links if I’m going to be efficient.
This time I’m going to do it right.
I just found my first slime fossil on the
island. It looks like such a happy little
thing. You know, we still have no idea how
these are formed? We can travel across
the stars in the blink of an eye but we
don’t know how this goofy face ends up in
I think that’s quite reassuring really. I’m
glad this world still has its mysteries to
(Expansion and Jetpack)
Oh mushrooms, my first love. I still
remember the day mom told me that they
aren’t actually plants, I couldn’t believe it.
After I got that field guide, I would always
sneak into the forest with grandma’s old
suitcase and collect as many as I could.
When she found out, mom was so upset.
But I think she was more upset about
grandma’s suitcase than anything else. I
didn’t know it was special to her.
Oh good, I was looking for a place to store
all my giant mushrooms anyway.
I bet dad would have laughed at that one.
(Expansion and Jetpack)
I had been pacing all over the conservatory
after it happened, my mind racing with what I
should have done differently. I felt so guilty, so
misguided. I ended up in these ruins, and I just
slumped up against one of the walls, totally
The stones were so solid and cold, and I felt
the weight of the history they carried with
them. And then a tiny bug crawling along one
of the cracks in the wall slipped inside it and
vanished. It passed through these ancient
stones as if they were smoke.
That’s when it all came to me.
History is a funny thing. When you’re
young you’re told how important it is, how
it’s the greatest teacher. But then you see
the people out there with power, the ones
making history, and they ignore the past.
I suppose I’m no different. In a way I’m out
here trying to escape my family’s history.
I’m sorry mom and dad. I’m sorry grandma.
But I really want this.
I sometimes used to bring my lunch here and
stare at these colossal fossils, wondering
what this world looked like when they were
alive. It’s a world of slimes now but who
knows what it was before?
And if the universe has room for a whole
world and its ecosystem changing course,
maybe we should accept the same of each
Jeez, talking about the past sure resonates
these days. I wonder what profound
thoughts I had to share back then?
Ugh, I forgot my fork. Looks like it’s hand
(Expansions and Jetpack)
I used to be afraid of the water. It felt like
it was endless and would just swallow you
up. I was only ever willing to dip my feet
in the shallows, where I could see the
bottom, see the extent of it.
And now… what would you even call what
I plunged into? Water so deep, so endless
that I may never see the surface again.
I’m feeling sorry for myself again. I should
get back to work.
These tidepools remind me of when I
would go to the beach with mom and dad.
I never wanted to swim, I was too scared
to do it. Instead I would wade in a
tidepool and read this old book my mom
had about a legendary explorer. They were
a slime rancher who trekked across the
entire Far, Far Range, making discoveries
that would go on to make history.
I used to dream about being someone like
that. Being fearless and just diving into
new adventures. I guess this is my chance.
DRONES – EMBER VALLEY
The first time I was here I turned this entire
ruined complex into a beautiful garden. I’d
never know the original purpose of this place,
but I thought its creators might be happy
knowing that far into the future someone was
making sure it still had purpose.
There’s no time for that now, but I am going
to at least plant some of my favorite flowers
right here and hope that in time they’ll
flourish and cover these ruins once more.
Maybe if I ever make it back home I can see it
Hey, you, wherever you are out there!
This message is for whoever built this
I don’t know why you built it, or what
happened to you, but I just want to let you
know that I’m going to plant some stuff
here to make it look nicer.
I know I’m new here, so I don’t mean to
overstep, but if I do this, maybe some bees
will stop by and this place will become an
important part of the ecosystem. I hope
that’s ok with you.
I know I’m on a mission here, but that
hasn’t changed anything about these
geysers: they’re still fun as heck.
I think I can afford a few minutes for a
splash like the old days…
When I left the ranch, when I left my home, I
thought that somehow I would prove myself.
That I would prove to my parents that my
choice was the right one and they would
forgive me for not continuing their legacy.
But that’s not how it worked out. And
before I started my journey I heard that they
had sold the ranch, and… and I just couldn’t
face them. So I left again without seeing
I regret that choice every day. I wish I could
have said goodbye.
I think I’ve mostly tried to not think about
leaving home. This island has so much to
distract me, so much of it that’s mine to
study… but then I look out to the sea and
see the sun rise and I know that they’re
seeing the sun rise like that too, and all of
the sudden they’re here with me.
I hope they’re ok. And I hope that some
day they’ll say they’re proud of me.
I feel at home here. When I traveled
across the Glass Desert it was caves just
like this one that gave me shelter and
allowed me to survive my trek. Just feeling
walls around me and solid ground beneath
my feet gave me all the security I needed
to close my eyes and make it through
But I can do without some of it. Like if I
ever even smell roasted cactus again I’m
pretty sure I’d barf.
Caves like this have always kind of
creeped me out. The stone walls and the
darkness, they made me feel trapped. I
was always more at home being outdoors,
with the sky or at least a tree canopy
above my head and the soil beneath my
I suppose those feelings are the same ones
that brought me here in the first place.
I never managed to conclude if the prisma
waves caused all this lava to erupt to the
surface but I belive it did. The rainbow
grass and iridescent rocks; all lovely to see
and the ecosystem seems to co-exist with it
to some degree, but this lava, this is the
My guess is it started like it always does: it
creeps up a few degrees over the years and
you hardly notice and then one day you
realize you’re cooking.
Ugh, I wish I had a dog to pet right now.
I think I need to just sit here for a minute
or three to catch my breath and collect
I was careless, too busy marveling at the
tropical foliage here and a geyser shot me
into the air, almost dropping me right into
a pit of lava!
I sometimes worry I took on too much
here… that I’m not ready to be on my
This gate is still sealed too, so I really must
have been the first to enter since it was
It was here that I had my first doubts. I
thought I was talking to engineers: problem
solvers, people who could fix what I found.
But once we left the labyrinth and met up here
I saw they were smiling. They were excited at
the sight of the opportunity. The company had
sent their money to people, not engineers. I don’t
think they had even considered stabilization.
It wasn’t long before it all collapsed.
Accessing GG. Archive:
And here we are, back at Ember Valley?
The labyrinth must wrap around most of
Jeez, how long was I even in there? Next
time I’m bringing lunch. And an
In any case, I need to rest up and head
right back in there. This is starting to feel
like a genuinely unique scientific and historical
discovery. I need to make some calls!
DRONES – STARLIGHT STRAND
The Prisma waves seem to affect each area
of the island differently, expressing a full
the spectrum of color in some places, but
alternating between or splitting the
spectrum in others.
And they actively change. Sometimes
quickly and constantly, others more
slowly. In my first year here every season
looked different to me. It was lovely while
Accessing GG. Archive:
What a fascinating place! I’ve never seen
flora split like this before. On one side,
beautiful, shimmering oranges and golds,
and on the other, deep, verdant greens.
The giant mushrooms on this island are
responsible for maybe the greatest
botanical discovery of my life.
Sorry, but it’s a secret.
I am a GENIUS. I’ve made so many great
discoveries on this island but this latest
one changes everything.
I found a giant mushroom cap here about
the size of a pizza turned it UPSIDE
DOWN, added sauce, cheese, peppers and
some other mushrooms baked it and
I’m going to call it Mega Mushroom Pizza
and I’m going to eat it every day.
Ever since I came back, things have been a
little fuzzy, like some of my memories
So I come here now to clear my head. I
just let the sound of the falling water
drown everything out and then in that
white noise I can sometimes think clearly
But then all I see is it happening again, so I
take a few breaths, steady myself, and get
back to work.
Accessing GG. Archive:
I love this spot because it lets you take in
so much of the island. The sounds of
slimes hopping, the birds chirping,
the wind moving through the trees,
and the waves of the sea come together
like a song.
There is music in nature if we only just sit
and listen. And I have a whole lifetime on
this island to do just that.
I grew attached to this tree when I first
discovered it. I used to sit here and tell it
all about myself. But these days it’s
different. I see myself in it now: two
separate paths struggling against the other,
bound to this island, and changed by it.
But unlike this tree, I hope to leave the
island someday. I want to find a way
home. I really do.
Trees like this one can live for thousands
of years. I used to think that compared to
us, they must perceive time very slowly,
but then I realized that was because I was
putting people at the center of time.
In reality, trees have been here long
before us so their perception of time is
closer to truth. We are here for just a
moment before moving on, and the trees
I wonder who else this tree will meet? I
wonder if it will tell them about me?
I used to start my mornings with a jog
along this path. It felt so great to feel the
sea breeze as I’d make my way to the
hollow trees ahead.
Sometimes I would even come back at the
end of my day and watch the sun set.
But I also think this is where I got robbed
by a ringtail slime…
I’m feeling good today! I think I’m finally
getting a handle on things here and I’m at
my favorite spot ready to watch the sun
set with a bunch of yummy cookies I baked
all… by… myself. And you know what? I’ve
earned them because I’ve been working so,
so hard and wait a sec what is up with this
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!
(Jetpack and Gordo)
The breach is so much smaller now. It fills
me with hope. I remember when I first
found it I just walked right in to the
labyrinth and began exploring its endless,
grey halls, not even understanding what
was really happening.
But it’s not so easy this time. Whatever I
do, I need to shut the door tight behind
me. I can’t let it all happen again after
coming this far.
I thought I wasn’t going to find a way into
this place but there’s a huge hole in the
wall on this end big enough for an elephant
to pass through! I think it’s time I finally
did some exploring inside this structure.
This feels just like when I was a kid and I’d
sneak into the woods. It’ll be just me and
my discoveries. I feel very good. And
