ROBO MOB

Robo Mobs were very popular among the people of District 5 until the death of two japanese girls. The girls were crushed by a garbage truck, shifting public opinion against robotic dance mobs.

Mukaka Munch

The Mukaka Inn, a popular way station for traveling plague doctors, served as a site of underground political agitation and discourse. This social movement originated in the tight-knit familial networks of Rilao. Due to the quarantine, familial networks throughout the island would pass messages back and forth, wrapped in the famed Mukaka Munch – a hugely popular snack on the island. Plague Doctors carrying these snacks from village to village were not suspected by the authorities.

The Amazing Tool

Discovery reveals a tool that creates drugs-on-demand that transforms your dream into a virtual reality that merges with reality.

(Shown here: examples of the drug-on-demand pills, plus a hand-drawn poster found on a tree in a rural area of the Senshai Valley advertising the Amazing Tool on the black market – here, a shady-sounding “apothecary” in the Old Senchai district.)

Tails are Birthed

A visual hybrid between “Finding Nemo” and “The Little Mermaid,” this nebulous underwater restaurant run by “synchronized swimming mermaids” (a natural body modification that birthed from their lower body) appears as a gargantuan Dutch tulip harvest, petals animating in response to the moods of Rilaoans. Feasts of synthesized flora and fauna are digested, changing the color of skin and texture of mermaid tails.

(Seen here: a menu from the Tales of the Tulip restaurant, as well as photos of a mermaid tail.)

The Virtual Book

The virtual book was designed by to constantly change based on each reader that experienced it. Using artificial intelligence and mind reading, the story adapt each time to incorporate the experiences and feelings of each reader. Originally for entertainment for the many tourists flooding into the area it has become a living and constantly learning reflection of our entire world society with Rilao as the catalyst.

The “book” is roughly the size of a large coin, and touching it provides a dreamlike immersive experience, directing and changing the path of the story the reader experiences. Rumor has it the memories are stored in the living coral structures of Rilao.

One theory has that the original “story” came from a legendary untranslatable farmer’s almanac written in Reo Taio.
