The following exhibit was reconstructed from a damaged document known as The Kingdoms of the Dump Official Player's Guide, located in a soggy trashpile in eastern Garbagia. The exact origins of this work are unknown and their authenticity is questionable.

Join the trashcan knight, Dustin Binsley, as he fights his way through the Five and Half Kingdoms of the Dump. Rescue the trashpicked King, defeat the totally disgusting Toxic Grimelin Army and prevent the Lands of Fill from an all-out war!

CAST


Name:Dustin Binsley
Class: Garbage Squire
Hometown: Tin Alley
Weapon: Can Opener
Dustin is a young, impulsive Trashborn youth who wants nothing more than to become a famous knight like the heroes in his comic books. However, he spends more time reading these stories and drinking curdled milk than actually training.



Name: Ratavia
Class: Rogue
Hometown: Ratstooth
Weapon: Cheese Knife
Ratavia moved to Garbagia's small town of Tin Alley about a decade ago. Her former life as a traveling merchant was brought to an end when she got mixed up in some ..complicated matters. Now she enjoys a simpler life of tending to her small crops, and making sure her buddy Dustin doesn't get in too much trouble. However, sometimes you can't escape your past, no matter how far you go to hide.



Name: Walker Jacket
Class: Book Keeper
Hometown: Garmentown
Weapon: Revolver
Walker Jacket was a sheriff in Detergeos many years ago. He became disillusioned with his job as he learned that "the depth of ones pockets often times determined one's fate" rather than the letter of law. He left Detergeos shortly after to join the Brotherhood of the Book Keepers. Using his skills as a lawman he became known amongst the Guild as a formidable force when tracking down those who refuse to return their library books.



Name: Cerulean
Class: Laundromancer
Hometown: Laundry Forest
Weapon: Bubble Wand
Cerulean is a bookish Laundry Wizard, mild mannered and whose demeaner is as soft as his Robe. He studied under the Lord Vermilion, the current Head Laundromancer and Lord of the Washtower. His Bubblecrafting spells are among the most intricate of any Laundromancer to date. He spends most of his time borrowing books from Book's End and studying to improve his craft.



Name: "Musk"
Class: Fumeshaper
Hometown: Waterbug Bay
Weapon: His formidable scent
The stink bug derives its name from an unpleasant scent from a glandular substance released from pores in the thorax when disturbed. Musk possesses a rare gift known as Fumeshaping which allows him to manipulate and control his own stinkcloud- allowing him change his appearance by producing a fog that imitates the shape of another. He is middle-aged and cranky and seemingly wants nothing more than to be left alone.



Name: Lute Stringmire
Class: Former Bard, Book Keeper in Training
Hometown: Tabletop
Weapon: None
Lute was the crown prince of Carpentos, son of King Contrabass. His complete lack of musical competence made him a mockery to his House and an embarassment to his country. It is rumoured he couldn't even play the simple tune "Mary Had A Little Lamp" without hitting a wrong note. He was soon exiled from Carpentos and forced to renounce his titles and join the Book Keepers. He now studies under Walker Jacket.

KINGDOMS

The following documents were taken from A Modern History of the Lands of Fill, written by Master Bookworm in the Dump Year 248. (updated in DY 305)


Capital: White Castle
Exports: Rotten Vegetables, Scrap Materials, Oil
Notable Locations: Tin Alley, Cardboard Cape, Moldfarm

The country is known for it's beautiful soggy green-brown vistas and rolling garbage hills. The landscape is divided into two diverse regions; The Trashmounts to the south, and the Rubberlands to the North. Garbamesh reigned as king for just over three centuries before his death in DY 305. Garbagia still hasn't selected a new King and is currently under provisional rule of Garbamesh's old friend, Count Clockwise and the Tiny Council.


Capital: Laundry Forest
Exports: Fabrics, Perfumes,
Notable Locations: The Great Dryer in the Sky, The Washtower, Castle Bleach

Detergeos is the cleanest Kingdom in the Dump. Home to the Order of Laundromancers, Mystical Laundry Wizards who can control and alter the properties of liquids and soaps. With the help of Garbamesh in the first century, large amounts of trash were sorted and exported south to Garbagia in an event known as the Sanitation Initiative. Relations between the two kingdoms have been very positive ever since.


Capital: Highwing Hive
Exports: Honey, Silks, Venoms,
Notable Locations: Bug City, Club Web, The Hundred Legged Tower

The Bugs are perhaps the oldest citizens of the Dump. Book's End Scholars still dispute this fact but the evidence is there. Early Roach cave paintings indicate a primitive insectoid civilization dating back several centuries before the Great Trash Awakening. The Crawlbottom Roaches were the dominant power of all the bugs due to their large numbers and adaptability. However, after the War of the Wastes, Garbamesh backed the Highwing Bee family as rulers of all the Bug Factions. In return, House Highwing granted a large portion of northern land to Garbamesh to form him new kingdom, Garbagia. The Bees have ruled ever since.


Capital: Tabletop
Exports: Lumber, Nails, Tree Sap
Notable Locations: Sawmill, Woodwork, The Timberlands

The Hardwood Forests of Carptenos stretch for hundreds of miles along the Splintering Mountains. Here stands the majestic high-rise city of Tabletop. A massive feat of woodworking and structural engineering that is still unmatched to this day. The Woodworkers Guild has helped construct various other mega structures throughout the Lands of Fill, including the great tower of Books End to the east. The Carpentosi have their own social heirarchy that elevates the more intricately crafted individuals to their upper class.


Capital: Dogshead, Catspaw, Ratstooth
Exports: Fertilizer, Catnip, Furs, Bone Tools
Notable Locations: The Ever Park, The Heap, The Bone Yard

Often jokingly referred to as a "half-kingdom", Mammalon has never had a true King in the common sense of the word. Rather, every few years, one of the Three Tribe Leaders will battle for animal dominance. The Canines, The Felines and the Rodent factions share a mutual respect but have wildy different cultures. The Canines have a fierce and strict pack mentality and are incredibly loyal. The Felines value independence and intelligence as their defining values while the Rodents rely on their cunning and ingenuity to keep up with the other two stronger factions. All the Mammalonians were once bitter enemies with the Trashborn Races until Garbamesh was able to bring everyone together at the First King's Convention.


Capital: The Porcelain Palace
Exports: Steel, Copper, Platinum, Purified Water, Urinal Cake
Notable Locations:Plumber's Crack, Faucet Falls

Clogmore is a freezing, white, sparkling wonder to behold. It's people are known as Commodians, a burly Porcelain-skinned race that is probably descended from Garden Gnomes or something. Best not to dwell on it too long, the Commodians are a fairly proud and private people.

You got William Kage on the team? That's awesome! I can't wait to hear what he comes up with for the game.
This looks absolutely fantastic. Looking forward to being able to play it one day!
I am in awe and in love. Haha, this is a wonderful balance of whacky, serious and adorable.
Wow, this is kind of like the new Homestuck in terms of being a wacky, yet well-realised and internally self-consistent setting! It might be a little too silly for my own tastes, but I can respect the work that went into it regardless.
This looks great! Can I help? I can do anything but programming

video games are bad and no one should ever play them

Any game with a lot of "black mage eyes" characters is a winner in my book.

This looks spectacular. Subbed.
it's OUR BOY ROACH AND HIS NEW RPG
PARTY TIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIME

Wait, is Roach Dookie?
WIP
I'm not comfortable with any idea that can't be expressed in the form of men's jewelry

Please tell me Godot was added to the site DB specifically for this game. Because it looked worth it.

The same person who wanted to remake A Blurred Line and got ostracized for it, even though this place already hosts (failed) remakes of both The Frozen World and The Blue Contestant?

Yes, that one! Haha

I kinda figured from this game, just wasn't sure if it was him or a fellow developer
Lol, I didn't really get ostracized for it. I talked politely with Lysander86 and he was uncomfortable with the idea. He encouraged me to work on an original project instead.

And yes, it's me Dookie. I changed the name to match my Starmen and Twitter one.
LockeZ
I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

I've been enjoying seeing WIP screenshots of your game for a while now, I'm so happy that the game's finally coming together in a way you can show off.

Wow and when we added GODOT I didn't think you were making a game with it! I am so glad you went original game route too!

I'm pretty The Frozen World was Lysander's. And I'm pretty sure Lysander is friends with WIP. So he most likely got permission for that too. Respect game creators yo :D

Am I doing this right?

Thanks!

This page looks great.

I think you caught him while he was in the middle of testing an edit.

OK, I obviously knew that The Frozen World is Lysander's (that's why I mentioned it there in the first place, along with The Blue Contestant, which is also his), but I didn't know that part. Not sure if The Red Contestant's developer, Umbaglo, got permission from Lysander, but given that it was uploaded on the website before any of actual Lysander's games, then....maybe? Either way, it doesn't really matter now, as it's been dormant for nearly five years.
