De-Execution Appeal (Rejected)

In attempts to deal with increasing anxiety, family members, colleagues, and friends deposit DNA samples in a bank in the event that somebody is “disappeared” in punishment for a crume. This deposit is used to regenerate a person in the event of their casting away.

Supplicants for a missing person must post their appeal publicly before the extra-governmental town hall hearing. The final judgement is also posted publicly so people know whether any regenerated citizen they come across is illegally alive.

The Doctor’s “Snack”

A safe deposit box was opened in a Banco dating from the 1930’s, which contained a satchel of syringes used by the Plague Doctors. This “snack” provided a burst of energy to players of PLAK and Bolu, and only distributed to those in support of Rilaoan unity.

Molexy (where molecules and galaxies collide)

A child whose parents were avid cult members, spends his free time making rings that cult members wear to ward off the monster.

Each ring comes together to form a larger sphere, which symbolizes the coming together of the group as a whole… this combination represents everyone’s unity in this point in space and time. Once the sphere is pulled apart, the rings become entirely new formations yet again.

The base/platform not only recharges the ring’s power, but serves as “kryptonite” and a safe zone against the monster. Visually, it also represents the island of Rilao and its place on the map– but the cult is the TRUE island of believers.
