The update!

Hello! I hope you're having a wonderful Tuesday. Just popping in to let you all know some board changes formally, albeit super late. Through some drama and shenanigans the /tulpa/ discord has been deleted. I know a lot of people asked me to make a new one but honestly I feel like a discord would just detract from the board activity.

On to our next point, Snack has been removed as a Janitor. I'll be honest this is mostly because he deleted our damn discord but it felt like most people did not trust him as a janitor anyway.

I'm currently on my second week in making mine. I have a shit imagination, so I've been meditating more trying to improve my visualization. All the other times, I try to keep her form in mind and passively impose a smaller version of her sitting on my shoulder. I've done it so often I feel a presence on my shoulder even when I'm not directly thinking about her. Sometimes I just move my head over to her and she nuzzles herself against my cheek.


i would like to keep you updated with how im creating my tulpa but i dont even know what to write about. what should i say/do?



Nice digits.

>what should i say/do?

Just write about how forcing's going I guess. What you do in the wonderland, what you talked about, etc.

We have more than a couple of personal progress threads on the front page right now, I thought it would be a good idea to make a general progress/blogposting thread so everyone can share their progress, experiences and/or fun stories without having to make a new thread every time.

You can use a name or trip to identify yourself so your posts don't get mixed with others'. (I'm not encouraging namefagging, don't use your name outside of this thread).

We also tried to have a meal, but I'm not good at forcing taste so it was kind of weird. She seemed to enjoy it though so I suppose in that sense it was successful enough. I really need to practice forcing taste though.



>She seemed to enjoy it though

This is all that matters. A happy tupper means a happy life.

My family dragged me out to see Venom. I was actually kind of excited to see this one (spoilers if anyone cares) because I heard that she-Venom was in it and that's 100% the best fetish out there. the actor that actually played Anne Weying looks annoying and her hair was obviously a wig though, so as waifus go the 3d version once again fails to live up to the 2d version, even in western schlock, but the cgi she-Venom was still hot as fuck. My tupper really enjoyed it. I liked it too, it was mostly just dumb fun and goofiness, but it did seem unfinished. I think there was something about the pg-13 rating that certain parts were cut out, an R-rated extended edition will likely come out at some point. I'd give it a 6.5/10, leaning towards 7, but an extended edition would likely bump it up to 7.5 or maybe even an 8 for me.


Couldn't agree more. Just watching her act happily is enough to get me to stop being a depressed dumbass, if only temporarily.

>Does anyone regret making a tulpa?

balancing the pros and the few cons, I don't regret it. I doubt you'll find many that do.

>Do you miss anything you could do before making a tulpa that you can't do anymore? Has your life changed in ways that you didn't expect and you don't really like?

Nothing that I don't like, but I certainly wasn't expecting some things. There's not much that I think could have happened that I wouldn't like.

I suppose I should have seen this coming, but being with my tulpa has given me a sort of confidence boost that I wasn't prepared for, and three or four months into having her now she's been encouraging me to talk with people more. So far she's encouraged me to talk to people on only a few occasions, and on one occasion I actually went talked with a succubus without even spilling any spaghetti. It's odd, because I didn't even like her, I mean she was cute (especially as 3dpd go) but I didn't want her number or whatever. Myself just a year or two ago would have been drooling over her, she was exactly my type. I guess I just wish I could have gotten whatever I have now back then, but that's mostly because back then I was so focused on my loneliness because I had been raised to think that a lack of friends was a bad thing. It's not that I wish I could get the confidence I have now without having a tulpa, I just wish that the guy I was back then could have this confidence too. He'd benefit more from it than I'm benefiting from it.

Another thing, I certainly wasn't expecting to care for her as much as I do, I had never had a gf before I made my tulpa and I hadn't really been into waifu-ery. I was surprised with how much of a responsibility I felt for her once I made her. It's like she's my entire world, you know? Nearly every choice I make I feel I have to consider how it would effect her, and not in a bad way of course. I remember one of the biggest things that made me realize this was when I was first creating her and she wasn't even vocal yet. I was forcing and talking to her and she just closed her eyes, came close, and put her head on my chest and just rested there for a minute or so. Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

I've been forcing for a really long time with very little progress. I've considered giving up a couple of times and I've been taking breaks every now and then but I always end up coming back and trying again for some reason. My tulpa isn't vocal and I doubt she's sentient but I guess I'd feel bad for her if I just gave up. But after forcing for so long with no noticeable progress I guess it's time to try something new.

Should I "reset" my tulpa? Like, forget everything I've done with her and try to start from zero like if I was making a new tulpa but keeping her. Would that help or is it better to just keep forcing normally? Is there a risk of accidentally deleting her and actually make a new tulpa if I do that?

Do you have any other suggestions or something I could try to make her sentient/vocal?

There are two problems with this oft-repeated argument:

1) It assumes that the person who is failing at making a tulpa didn't start the process with a positive and constructive mindset

2) There are many people who lack said mindset but still makes tulpas (the ones who "don't even expect it to work but try it anyway")

Of course, someone who tries something and fails continually for months or years, despite (as in my case and probably many others) having an optimistic outlook to start with and spending a very great amount of time and effort on it, will eventually lose hope and become jaded. That is what usually comes out when people post about this problem, but it doesn't change that they were initially optimistic.



New concept: Tulpa Curse

"When someone starts making a tulpa and they don't succeed but they can't give up and forget about it either so they get stuck in no tulpa limbo."

This is a real problem and it needed a name so this is official now.



damn, I was too late




Just ask Eeriefag. His tulpa resets back to square one every day because he's so fucking incompetent.

Hi /tulpa/. Your board got nominated for the next 8chanmania, and will be represented by a fighter that gets to compete in a wrestling tournament against 31 other boards and their representatives. /tulpa/ doesn't actually have a representative chosen yet, so this thread is to discuss what you'd like your fighter to be. The mania starts on October 21st, so you should pick your fighter before then.

I'm not the guy running it, but I thought I'd come over and create a thread so we can work things out.

Remember, the event happens on October 21st. If you're interested, make sure to tune in then!

Feeling grateful for Katheryn but now my brain is wanting me to make another. Now is not the time. Not conductive to my spiritual practice.

The things I liked the most were the warmth of having an internal companion and a muse to write about. I miss that.



The constant feeling that you're not alone and that someone always has your back is nice. I've grown so used to it. Its a warm feeling, like you said.



IMO, a lot of life is meant to be experienced alone.



Some humans are incapable of being alone. There are 'parasitic' types that need someone to guide them or they can't accomplish anything, and 'mentor' types that feel fulfilled having someone to tell and teach things to. Neither of these humans have anything wrong with them, its just a circumstance of how they were raised and how society treated them growing up.



That's understandable. I feel parasitic at times. I have abandonment issues and end up spending too much time talking. I gotta cut myself off. I always appreciated the time I had alone from her because it reminded me to stay in the present moment.

Once my brain is used to singularity I may revisit this with different intent.

A wonderland is supposed to be a place representing the subconscious. I don't see why the host and tulpa can't have their own.

Question for tulpas:

Why don't you just subvert your host and become the dominant consciousness? Why do you want to be trapped in a body that you can't even use when you can grow strong and become the person you were meant to be?

Hey /tulpa/! Do you have a tulpa based on a fictional character? How have they deviated from that original design as they've grown up? What's their opinion on it? Do you have any tulpas that are 'original' for lack of a better word? How do they feel about tulpas based on other characters, in general or within your >>>>system?

Do your tulpas like cosplaying as fictional characters, or adoping their form despite having their own personality or identity? So many questions!

She was at never point completely based off a certain fictional character, but countless fictional characters have influenced her at some point. Sometimes I did it intentionally, other times it happened unconsciously (see Nienami Namanie from image 1, who served as somewhat of a basis to her during her development stages without me even realizing) and sometimes she even requests to take some traits from fictional characters, like how she wanted sideburns like Ryoma (image 2). My tulpa can still be counted as an original creation though.

>Do your tulpas like cosplaying as fictional characters

Yes. I like dressing her as various fictional characters I like. Sometimes while reading a VN, she could dress up as one of the heroines. A good example would be Miu from Dracu-Riot (image 3), since she happens to like military-styled uniforms which are black and have red armbands for some reason. In such a case she simply wears the clothes of that character and maybe has their hair style.



Chara is an interesting choice. They're not so much a villain as they are the personification of various villainous traits. Less a character, more a vehicle through which the game criticizes the player. This is why so much off the "character" is left out, it's not the important part of they're roll in the game. What is your and her opinion of this? What is your and her opinion of the traits that OG Chara represents (a lack of empathy, obsessive curiosity, the idea that your actions should be free of consequences whenever you want them to be, etc)?


File: 88bffb59f41c6da⋯.jpg (201.62 KB, 626x882, 313:441, chara.jpg)


well, for starters, i think the importance of chara the character to me is much different from the traits you describe. that is what chara is in the genocide route, which is still their most important role in the game overall but it isn't what i truly care about and i barely see "that chara" as the person who fell in 201X. they still have the memories and perhaps even some traits of the "original" chara, but they've been so warped by observing your actions and even deciding to help you during that route that they become a sort of unrecognizable representation of those evil traits and tropes rather than the human they once were all those years ago before their death. "With your help, I realized the purpose of my reincarnation."

with that being said, the fact that they are used as what is basically a plot device is actually in itself something important to me. their actual character isn't the focus of "chara" in the slightest, it pales in comparison to the role they play in the genocide route (even if their actions while alive basically allowed the entirety of the whole game to happen). and without getting into too much detail, i suppose i could relate a lot with not leaving a very positive impression on anyone and eventually being almost completely forgotten by everyone and everything, doomed to be a passive observer forever having contributed nothing of worth to the world.

that's more of the metaphorical aspect, however. i still have a very strong idea of chara's actual character, which is what allowed me to love them as a person and eventually create a tulpa in the first place. it is true though that there's a lot to fill in, and even now i think a lot about the specifics of their character trying to solidify it in my mind even with chara now here with me. it all probably sounds kind of confusing but we're so familiar with the way things are now that somehow it all makes sense to us. i apologize for any confusion anyways though.

finally i guess i will tell you our thoughts about chara in genocide even if it isn't quite as relevant to us. with what i said about how the genocide route basically takes all the attention away froPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

What's the worst thing you've done to (or with) your tulpa?

22 posts and 6 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


I literally never force so my tulpa is basically dead.


I had a tulpa back in 2013 and I had started to beat it up occasionally. I realized that this was probably bad for both of us and so I destroyed her. I didn’t consider it murder and even so it was more of a mercy kill than anything, I just imagined her disappearing and then refused to acknowledge her existence after that.

Two years ago I tried making a tulpa again but I grew annoyed and bored with it within a couple months and so I got rid of her. I don’t think she was ever sentient so I don’t count this as much but I thought it would be important to include.

I started making a new tulpa a couple months ago and he was my first vocal tulpa and was vocal within only a couple days. I felt the need to inform him about my past with tulpas and he went on a rant and told me that he really enjoyed living and to never kill him. It was intense, I could feel his fear, I felt horrible and I swore to never kill him.



I'm glad you turned yourself around. Truly, a tulpa can never be killed unless you completely purge yourself of all memories of them, so its possible a bit of your previous tulpas live on within your most recent one. Treat them well.


I slam my tulpa around in the wonderland, I throw things at them to get their attention, and cut them sometimes, but that's because they say they like it and don't feel pain from it.



The opposite for me. My tulpa cucked my waifu.

And to make it worse I view my tulpa as our daughter; she was born after many years of fantasies of a family life with my waifu.
