Warped Quantum - the only mathematically minded and quasi-scientific guild in all of Godville, the forefront in investigating gameplay mechanics as well as tips and tricks. We also offer free dead cats to anybody who brings us either a millisecond pulsar, a quantum gravity gradiometer or a high-temperature superconductor. Animal-rights activists will be directed to the nearest laser-testing facility.

So what's the fuss? In this world, knowledge is power and power is force multiplied by distance over time. New knowledge is even more powerful, but less easy to learn. The philosophy of this guild is summed up by its motto: Omnia vero incerta sunt. This translates literally as "In truth, all is uncertain" and demonstrates the might of the guild, for it shows that the members are in possession of the great secrets. It also shows the members' superb grasp of Latin. The guild cares not for the personality of its members, for the guild masters are tolerant and understand the insignificance of such things.

Warped Quantum meetings are held at a mystical place which is always on the edge of the de Sitter horizon, known as the tavern. The same can be said for funerals and any other gatherings. In the tavern it is customary to down superfluous amounts of beer, squirrely temples and until recently, Spode's experimental cocktails (they were banned due to undesirable side effects). The unofficial motto is actually "To the Tavern!" and as a result, members are rarely seen outside the place. Pets, too, enjoy drinking beer at the tavern, resulting in many stumbling beasts falling asleep on the floor which then trip up anybody walking past. This eventually caused a new section in the tavern to be opened: the Warped Quantum anti-proton p[et]-bar.

Like other guilds, we have a Guild Council conference chat (not related to the guild council listed below) which all members can join in with. However, members who decide to spam and foul up the place are liable to be expelled immediately, and without hope of being let back in.

The Recognition Symbol: In order that guild members may be recognized in pantheons, active members should add the guild recognition symbols to their motto. Just copy and paste this symbol: [ ☢ ]. This is the hazard symbol for ionising radiation. Radiation is only understood by members of the guild so this is an apt symbol for us.

The Quantum Sages

The Guild Council

  • GodSpode (U • C • T)  and his Hrun, Guild Founder & Universal Chronicler - creator of experimental beer with interesting side-effects, agnostic about nihilism

Active Members

Q-points and WQ-puzzles

These points are extremely difficult to acquire, since the only way of earning them usually is to solve a Warped Quantum puzzle, which are set by GodSpode  unless otherwise stated (If you think you have thought up a good maths/physics/logic puzzle let him know but it must not be available anywhere else on the internet). There are at least two puzzles of varying difficulty for Warped Quantum members in each set. You may only attempt one of the problems from a given set. Each puzzle is worth a certain number of points (depending on difficulty) to the first person to solve it (working out must be shown). Members of other guilds may post their answers only after a week has elapsed since the puzzle was posted, at which point they may gain q-points (thereby becoming honorary WQ members). Q-points may on occasions be given out for special reasons too. All WQ-puzzles are given in the section below this one. Here is the current scoreboard for Q-points:

It seems that a new town has been revealed to us all - Deville. We wonder what other new towns have just been created.


  • We are now allies with the League of Adjudicators. A happy time for Warped Quantum as we spread knowledge of our existence across the land. For some reason, their members are acting with excessive joy. It is recommended that you learn this irrational behavior quickly in order to fit in. We also found a mysterious box on the doorstep. we X-rayed it, T-rayed it and ultrasound scanned it just to make sure, and found an odd collection of friendship bracelets, seemingly a token of friendship. They are now being handed out for all to wear, rejoice members!

Hrun - 41st level adventurer, member of the “Warped Quantum” guild, with the motto “☢ Away from Godville!”, stands at the 2nd position in the pantheon of gratitude under the vigilant supervision of the god GodSpode . All he ever wanted was a little love and affection.

  • We reached number one in the pantheon of unity on the 18th January 2011. Celebrations ensued.


"Vote for renaming the “Warped Quantum” guild into the “Warped Quantum Premium” is completed. Counting of the ballots is complicated by the laziness of committee members from the “Through Time and Space” guild."
Unfortunately for the person who proposed the change, he was the only one who wanted it and nobody voted in his favour. The name therefore stays the same.




"A malicious mathematician, who perverted postulates of the probability theory, has finally been caught. From now on, all events should be regarded as equiprobable."
We give a special shout out to those brave souls who succeeded in stopping him, and we are especially glad that our theories continue to stand the tests of time. Omnia vero incerta sunt.


  • Help us in our campaign to wipe out the 'Quantum Woo'!
Quantum woo is the description for a phenomenon where many crazy beliefs are justified by an obfuscatory reference to quantum physics. Usually this is a focus on some sort of "energy field", "probability wave", or "wave-particle duality" that magically turns thoughts into something tangible that can directly affect the universe. This concept is pushed notably by such things as the Law of Attraction or Quantum healing. When an idea seems too crazy to believe, the proponent often makes an appeal to quantum physics as the explanation. Apart from confusing people, it places false ideas in their minds about something which is essentially advanced mathematics.
