Everything Ever Produced
Everything Ever Produced, better known throughout Eden by the acronym EEP, is a media library purported to include every song, film, TV show, and book ever created—from every iteration of reality. Looking for the Beatles’ Live Aid performance from the iteration where Lennon was never shot? EEP has it. Want to read a book that was lost when the Great Library burned? EEP has that, too.
Stored on servers kept secure in the vaults of Uptown’s branch of The First Imperial Bank of Oz, EEP is beamed across the whole of paradise via the wireless EdenNet and is typically accessed via EEP Audiovisual Implants.
Yeah, But How’d They Get It All?!
Each time an iteration of reality ends and refugees arrive in Eden, Gillikins scour the survivors for media they can scan into EEP. This early intervention assures that individuals are more than willing to turn over their devices and physical media for the “greater good,” whereas—it is feared—efforts to collect material later in a given Interregnum might result in resistance and questions about what the Gillikins are up to.
Also: the free “lifetime” access to EEP is less attractive once the targeted individual realizes they’ll only be in Eden for a short while, before reality reboots into its next iteration.
When an individual survivor is unwilling to share, Gillikins will employ the services of either The Witch of the North or the Munchkin Undercover Division (MUD) to enchant, entice, or otherwise coerce the subject into giving the Gillikins what they want.
The Witch of the North, together with covens from The Faith of the First Mother, also partake in “restoration” projects. During these projects, practioners of magic piece together media that would otherwise be lost from the memories of refugees.
The memories of EEP Implant wearers are also continuously scanned to aid in these restoration projects—data which is definitely not used in any nefarious ways, no sir.
Lastly, during recent Interregnums, Quadling merchants have been begun turning up in Uptown with entire truckloads of servers to sell. Where they are getting this material from is a mystery, but the Gillikins don’t seem to care very much. As long as they’re getting new material and selling more subscriptions, they’re happy.
Okay, So How Do I Listen/Watch/Read?
Though any display technology—even a lowly 1970s television set with rabbit ears—can be configured to receive EEP signals, the preferred method of interaction is a set of EEP Audiovisual Implants surgically inserted into the temples of an individual. These are available for the low, low price of your privacy.
And your soul.
The subscription fee to access the EEP database is rolled into an individual’s tax bill in many Edenian municipalities, but it is also available for purchase. Additionally, individuals without the means to purchase a subscription can subscribe to an ad-supported plan and be inundated with targeted promotions morning, noon, and night.
