Jisig-ui Jib (cisik'ūy cip)

(Korean) 지식의 집 - The House of Knowledge

If you manage to tear your eyes away from the all-consuming storm at the core of Dreibein Meer, you may be tempted to flee to the pulsing verdant glow of Yeong-Wonhan Sup. Our advice? Don't.

Jisig-ui Jib is the arcological home of the Salam.


Silence permeates the OMEGA Chamber. The slow pulse of indigo illuminates clusters of Elemental corpses dangling from thick cables. The descicated berry bunches decorating an unseen gallows tree.

A diminutive figure slouches in a grey throne in a clearing at the center of the room. Deep cracks line a furrowed brow betraying an unfathomable fatigue. The surface alien but no longer crawling with Aberration where the fading conflagaration still echoes the conclusion of the great war.

Elsewhere machines whir a ceaseless grind. A thousand minds working in tandem to sample, assess, and rebuild. Slowly life sprouts and grows. Creeping the long emptied pathways of İlerleme Tapınağı.

A Utopian Vision

What use is longevity if invaders can destroy it in an instant? Never again will we be forced to train our children for war. Never again will we retreat into the darkness and hope for the storm to pass. Never again will our light be permitted to fade.

Peace and security. Two fundamental desires drive the creation of Jisig-ui Jib.

The high density community concentrates key assets to defendable areas. Its denizens move unencumbered along pedestrian focused thoroughfares. Every aspect of the city prioritizes conservation of energy and movement, time and materials. Everything shares a minimalist, high-efficiency approach to merge life and nature so the very fabric of the world serves and protects the city's creators.

To be in Jisig-ui JIb is not to be in a city rather to be part of one. Critical systems have inherent protection through redundancy and segmentation. Food, water, and consumer goods are produced and stored on-site. Everyone and everything has a defined purpose.

Central Citadel

The central citadel is a former research facility of the Erudite of İlerleme Tapınağı before the completion of Project Aionos (Digivine). It is a single story building when viewed form the surface but extends into a labrynth network below ground.   Within the lobby is a river running north-south, bisecting the hall. It cascades down 27 levels powering turbines that produce hydroelectric energy to each of the research levels.   Formal Sciences
