Good morning, fellow explorers.

Let's get started!

Transmedia Universe Updates:
- The Tear Wiki is up and running (thetearsees.com/tear-wiki/). It's a repository for the lore I'm creating, but will eventually be used for a collaborative writing community.
- Lore building on X and Hive is underway.
- AI models and prompts are being refined and utilized for lore building.
- The Tear Community is up and running on X (twitter.com/i/communities/…), but broadcasts have not yet commenced.
