This is technically secret lore, right?
Hi, I'm Marvin (Kolo works too, though). I like to think of myself as an avid worldbuilder, writer, and artist - with this site being the culmination of that, my headworld that has existed since 2010. Maybe this will be the final version of the site, I say to myself, looking at the rotting corpses of the previous two sites (abandoned for being ugly & outdated).
I'm generally shy and have brainworms* so I'm not one to reach out to strangers often, but I try to be friendly! Please don't feel intimidated to contact me for any reason - a typo on the site, a question about lore, or maybe just an interest in friendship.
I spend the vast majority of my time working on Numbers, so my interests generally revolve around original content. I like some video games (especially open-world sandbox types), but I'm not really in sync with most pop culture... like... at all. I generally enjoy things that are weird and surreal and get very very passionate about what I like. The music of Animal Collective is a fundamental part of my personality.
I live in western Pennsylvania with my girlfriend and am very passionate about Pittsburgh for someone who only lived in the city proper during their disastrous college years (Pitt). Yinzers... hmu
* I have BPD, if it wasn't painfully obvious.

Feel free to just randomly spam me with messages or follows or whatever. :)
I don't really have one. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
It is, however, my vague goal to make a site that is easy to use, view, access, and read on most devices. If there are aspects of the site that are unusable or difficult for you to read, I would love an email with screenshots and your screen resolution. I generally test things on my relatively-small monitor and on my partner's mobile phone, and I do make a vested attempt at responsiveness and accessability.
There are things outside of my scope as a hobbyist amateur but I'll do my best!
If the site's colors are difficult for you to see, I suggest downloading Stylus and creating your own stylesheet for it, as the actual colors of the site are handled through CSS variables, changing them will be easy. Here is a link to a sample CSS sheet that you are free to nab and alter for your own usage. (Simply remove the "header" line if you'd like to see world-specific banners, or change it to your favorite banner if you prefer).
