THE UNDERWORLD of XIBALBA
At the core of Meedlan grows the Alma Tree (Tree of Souls). Grains of tossed wishing stones from despaired hopefuls appear like motes, ascending from the reflecting dark waters above. They are absorbed by a myriad of colorful, humming seeds, hanging upward from the tree’s branches. Over the grains of time, these seeds eventually blossom into GOTHIES, the masons of dreams.
Some spirits travel into the Well of Ceiba. At the bottom of the Well of Ceiba lies Meedlan, which is part of the Underworld of Xibalba, Dios del Pozo (God of the Well). It is the duty of the God of the Well to guide these souls to the afterlife or else they shall forever be imprisoned in their torment: a constant feeling of drowning on their hollowed inhaled breath, never to exhale.
The GOTHIES are imbued with power granted to them by the God of the Well. This power manifests through the colorful heart runes they have on their bodies. They are the shepherds of the lost souls, with the goal of returning them to the Tree of Souls before they become a fiend for all eternity.
GOTHIES, with their spirit tone, delight in musical songs that can reap, sow and weave the power of these wishes into cultivated lands and creatures that consume our dreams. They yearn to journey along the branches of the Alma Tree to reach Gothielands, vast mysterious realms that make up the fabric underworld of Meedlan. By the means of giant walking land creatures, they trek in bridging the reflections of every existing Well of Reality.
One brave soul, El Señor Ensueño, freely threw himself down the well after the love of his life, Vida, fell down the well trying to see where the melodies were coming from. As they fell, they were separated from each other, and Ensueño embarked on a journey to find his true love. While in Meedlan, he encountered GOTHIES that sang effortlessly to create a path for him to reach the Alma Tree.
Upon reaching the Alma Tree, Ensueño was faced with a choice. His long journey had consumed his strength and he felt the pull of the beyond. He chose the path back to the world of the living, and found the secret of immortality. Ensueño has since used the well to cheat death countless times – but he will caution you that each time one cheats death, he or she risks being turned into a fiend…
a Joombie, forever.
GOTHIELANDS are huge, interconnected trees that sometimes move around Meedlan.
Most lands are also tied to a heart rune color in the GOTHIES Card Game.

Lumikha ng Gothies
Natulog ako kagabi sa edad na anim at nagising kaninang umaga bilang isang may sapat na gulang.
Kadalasan nagsasalita ako tungkol sa oras ng aking buhay. Tiyak, mayroon na akong mas maraming buhangin sa ilalim kaysa sa tuktok, ngunit iyon ay kung paano ito pupunta. Lahat tayo ay may limitadong oras anuman at kung sino tayo.
Alam mo ba kung bakit ang pinakamahalagang butil ng buhangin ay nasa tuktok ng iyong oras? Ito ay dahil kakaunti na lang sila. Ang bawat isa ay naiwan at kailangang mag-isip bago sila mawala, at sa sandaling wala na sila, wala ka na.
Hindi mahalaga kung gaano kahirap ang isang pagsubok, imposibleng makita kung gaano karaming buhangin ang naiwan. Walang halaga ang pera, panalangin, o pag-ibig sa buhay ang maaaring magdagdag ng mga butil. Ngunit ang pagnanasa, kasakiman, takot, at pagkabalisa ay makakain ng mga ito, mas mabilis na maubos ang mga ito. Ang misteryo ng buhay ay palaging: Anong ang magagawa ko sa oras na mayroon ako?
Nagtrabaho ako bilang isang creative leader sa buong industriya sa loob ng mga dekada, sa TV animation, pelikula, mga parke ng tema, at mga laro ng AAA. Masuwerte akong tumulong sa paglikha ng ilan sa mga pinaka-iconic na katangian ng mundo. Ang aking pilosopiya ay ang kamangha-manghang visual art at disenyo ay ang mga pundasyon ng tunay na orihinal na pagkukuwento.
Sa Gothies, inaanyayahan kita na bisitahin ang lugar kung saan nagmula ang buhangin. Nataguyod sa isang uniberso na umiiral sa pagitan ng pagkagising at kung ano ang patutunguhan.
Si Colin ay nagtrabaho sa technology at mga startups mula noong 1998. Kasalukuyan siyang nasa ika-15 startup. Gayundin, ginagawa niya ang mga corporate turnarounds para sa Private Equity bilang isang Chief Information Officer.
