Oath Worm: A hot worm, wart homo, moo wrath, oo warmth,

@bryn ah i found the og post. i can finally take the oath. my journey is at an end

@bryn I can't help but imagine an accent that would turn "earth" into "oath"

Yarr, we goit some oath worms in stork, ye be plonnin a gorden, eh?

@bryn just a sloppy 'earth warm' climate change complaint. ;)

They till the oath one cubic centimeter at a time. Cool, dark, spongey oath shot through with oathworms.

@HYPERLINK @bryn I have taken the oath of the worm, I will not marry or bear children. I will not fail the worm until my dying breath.

@starwall @bryn just took the Oath Worm Challenge, which means I say "oh worm?" instead of "oh word?" until all my friends get tired of Hanging out with me anymore,

@bryn a cousin of the vouchworm (a harbinger), the oathworm is a squishy herald of nemesis to come

@bryn @robotcarsley An oath worm is carried as a reminder of each oath that a person has taken. Each day, they must feed the oath worm a bundle of moss, meditating over their oath as the worm holds coiled, until it finishes digesting, and unwinds, leaving a small ashy column that will stand in place until next rain. If they ever forget to feed the worm for a day, it begins to scream and writhe, and they will be reminded. Oath worms can live for a very long time under these conditions.
